(Previous chapter: Crushed)

Kerry Hoves had always imagined that summer vacations would be way different once he was a teenager, he imagined all the wild things he would to with his friends and girlfriend but reality proved much different.

He ended up spending the majority of his days sitting by the pool watching his little sister Haley jump in the water for the hundredth time, forcing him to watch and grade her jumps. He knew Haley didn’t actually need any supervision but his parents made him watch her whenever she went out to the pool, and she wanted to go there every single day. His older sister Freddie was supposed to take turns with him but ever since she got a boyfriend she would sneak out of the house to meet him whenever their parents were away.

The place where Frederica Hoves found herself that evening was ugly, unwelcoming. Even Frederica had to admit to that as she looked at the monstrosity in front of her.  The exterior of the mansion, or whatever you called the house was made of ugly, grey and mismatched stone. The front door was huge but unappealing. For most people it would be hard to imagine anyone wanting to live here. Most people might be scared or at least creeped out at the sight. Frederica however could not help but smile. It was just the kind of place she would like to live in one day.

“So you can’t explain why you girls are so damn complicated?” Kerry Hoves asked his best friend Persephone Santoro. Persephone smiled as she placed her hands on the metal chains of the swing she had been sitting on.

“You are dangerously generalizing things Hoves…” She said as she pushed herself around with her legs still touching the ground.

(Previous post: A not so quiet evening at home)

Hannah woke up to an empty bed the next morning. That was a bit of an oddity since her husband almost always overslept and had to be basically dragged out of bed, which now made her wonder if he had slept at all. Sighing she got up, tied her hair in a bun and went to the kitchen to make breakfast, she didn’t want Ty and Haley to have to eat the burnt out sandwiches they had for dinner last night.

Thing were finally normalizing in the Hoves household. A tough period was behind them, with Junior’s stepmom dying and Dougie getting married and moving out life at home had changed for every one of them. And that is why Hannah so eagerly welcomed a nice quite family dinner at home, even if it was just burned grilled sandwiches her oldest daughter made in a rush to get ready for the Spring Dance, and even if it was just her husband and their son Ty eating with her.

Hoves – TOC

This post contains a table of contents for the Hoves family with synopsis of each post if you don’t want to read them all (so spoilers obviously).

I try to make each round’s series of posts work as a stand alone short story so each should make sense on its own but if you want to catch up on what happened previously (or check if my writing had made any progress :P) you can follow the links to read them or if you want to refresh your memory or just want to get a fast update of what’s been going on read the synopsis in italic.

I will update this post after each new update for this family is published.

Intro

Screenshot_21

The Hoves family originally started with the Hoves brothers, Freddie and Jesse, and Freddie’s two kids: Junior and Mya. Freddie’s wife died in a fire a few years before so he decided to move to a new town and start over, his younger carefree brother Jesse came with him. They were both cops in their old hometown so they decided to join the police force again. And while Jesse partied and met women Freddie was concentrated on providing for his family and helping his kids deal with life without a mother. However what Freddie didn’t expect was falling in love, with his boss, no less. Blair was young, funny, charming and smart and the weird thing, to Freddie at least, was that she liked him back. She even understood he was not ready to marry just yet so for a while they just lived together. In that time they had a son, little Douglas. But Blair was not just a mother to Dougie, she was also a mother to both Junior and Mya, Freddie’s older kids. They finally married, just before Jesse moved out with his new girlfriend, Elena and their daughter Krystal.

For years they were a happy couple. Blair rose to the top of the police force and Freddie held on to his job until his untimely death. At the time of his death both of his older children were married, Mya had twin girls and was living with her husband and his family and Junior married his high-school girlfriend, Hannah. After Freddie’s death their daughter was born and in his honor they named her Frederica. Hannah and Junior went on and had three more kids, Kerry, Ty and Haley. Blair was a great help in raising all of them until her recent death. After his mother’s death Dougie got married to his longtime girlfriend Lysa and moved out to start a new life with her.

Day 3

Wednesday morning Junior slept in. He had woken up fresh and energized so he decided to go for a jog. It was a workday so Screenshot_3the streets were pretty much empty but it was a sunny day, beautiful and promising.

He ran all the way to the beach, and he
had planned to run back home the same way he came. He had just passed the Public Pool where he saw Lysa, his younger brother’s fiancee, she was there with her brother, Hannah’s best friend Pegasus and he waved at them both and just continued running. Seeing the two of them had broken his running meditation and his thoughts strayed back to his wife.
