(Previous post: Princess)

Sabina couldn’t be more excited when she woke up the next morning to Ed’s text. He was already on the bus and coming over. She and Domynika made some waffles together, neither of them was a great cook but together they actually managed to put together a decent meal. They had breakfast together and then Dom went to tend the garden.

“Mum said to at least water the plants.” She told a confused Sabina. “We don’t want them all dying out before mum and Andrew come back do we? They will never leave us alone then…” Sabina had to agree. She was also very thankful Domynika didn’t ask her for help, she was in no mood to deal with some dumb plants she was overjoyed. Ed was coming!


She called Lena to tell her about her good news and they chatted away as they did every day. She then did the laundry because she had nothing nice to wear tonight and she was too excited to do anything else…

Javeed-Prentiss – Round 6.2: Princess

(Previous post: An evening stroll)

The princess stood on the balcony of her castle watching with a smile at her kingdom below. She cast her gaze over the rolling green hills, the vibrant forests teeming with life, and the small villages in between where her people were hard at work bringing in this year’s harvest. Winter would soon be upon them and they must be ready.


Sabina was sure they would be. She believed in her people, in her kingdom, when winter comes they would want for nothing… Well almost nothing…. The prince was still gone, her prince, the love of her life… He had gone far away to war and left her alone to rule the kingdom and dream patiently of his return… Sabina sighed. She missed him, as much as she had ever missed anyone….

And then she gave her land one last longing look and suddenly there he was. Seated on a white horse as a true prince should be, triumphantly returned from a distant war, he looked up at her and she smiled when they eyes met almost crying out with delight before remembering that a princess should not act that way.

Javeed-Prentiss – Round 6.1: An evening stroll

Table of contents


It was a pleasant evening for a stroll. Cocoa was glad Andrew talked her into it. Lately this evening walks have become her favourite time of the day, just some quiet time with her best friend in the whole world… Looking at Andrew now Cocoa couldn’t help but feel grateful that they got to grow old together. Once her husband died it nearly destroyed her… She thought she would never again feel happy or anything but lonely… It was Andrew that helped her get over that… It was always Andrew that helped her pick up the pieces… Like when she got her heart broken by his little brother Tommy, or when she lost her first baby…

Javeed-Prentiss – TOC

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

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.


Cocoa Javeed was born Cocoa Brown and she moved to Sunset Valley with her mother Ebony. She and Andrew became friends almost as soon as they started school together and have been pretty inseparable their whole life. After they both lost their spouses Andrew, a successful and world renowned doctor with a little son moved in with his best friend and her twin daughters.

Moving in together worked well for them, with Andrew’s help Cocoa managed to keep her big house and raise her daughters but what will happen now that Andrew is engaged again or if they found out Cocoa’s daughter Sabina and Andrew’s son Eduard are dating?

Round 6.3: The Vampire Bar


When Eduard comes to visit he and Sabina head to the newly opened place in town.

Domynika Javeed

Like her twin sister Sabina Domynika was raised by her mother since her father died when the two of them were babies. The twins were always very close but unlike her sister with her positive and pink views on life Domynika’s are very dark. She is fascinated by dark and morbid, and had always been. She loves music and had tried playing every instrument she could get her hands on. She also likes the cosmos and stars and one of her hobbies is also stargazing. Domynika can fall asleep anywhere, in bed, on her chair, on the floor. She really isn’t picky where that is concerned…

Domynika is a very confident person and she likes taking her own pictures. On their first school dance she charmed her best friend Maja’s date, Jacob. But the relationship didn’t go further than that, on the same dance she got into a fight with someone who was wearing the same outfit.

A year later, on another dance she and Jacob finally got together but now she and Maja are no longer friends. Domynika also likes Kain Vivi, she thinks he is cool and hot.

Sabina Javeed

Sabina’s father Skip died when she was very young and she has no memories of him. She was raised by her mother Cocoa and has a twin sister Domynika. The two are very close despite being radically different people and share everything. She has two other close friends from school, Irene Hoves and her cousin Maja Prentiss.

Ever since she was a little girl she dreamed of being a princess, and although she knows she isn’t sometimes the lines of reality blur for her and she actually believes it, deep down she know this should scare her but in reality it doesn’t.

Sabina is very glad Andrew and Eduard came to live with them. They are both very smart, like her mum, and Andrew is being a great help with her schoolwork. She and Eduard became close very soon. Sabina likes pranks, and she doesn’t mind being victim of such, quite the opposite, she thinks it’s great fun so their friendship started with the two of them playing pranks on each other then the dance happened and they danced together, she really impressed him with her dance moves and they were crowned prom king and queen. Someone tried to steal her crown and she stopped them and started crowd surfing… It was a night she could only dream of… It would only be more perfect if she and Eduard could have pulled a prank together…

They have been a couple since that night but that is something they are keeping a secret from their parents. Sabina is very popular at school and she always felt everyone liked her that is why she is so upset when she found out an older boy, Jerome Ayers is snubbing her.

She recently took a charisma class because she wants to be accepted to the young politicians club in her school. She loves yellow flowers, a fact her boyfriend knows and brings her some for each date they have. She once sneaked a peek at her sister’s stargazing notes and using them discovered a new planet she named Princess.

Eduard Prentiss

Eduard Prentiss was adopted as a baby by Hoster and Andrew Prentiss. His fathers both worked a lot, Hoster being a fireman and Andrew being a doctor. His chief babysitter was Penelope Belgen who would read to him and let him call her Penny, something nobody else does. His dad Hoster died when he was very young and he barely remembers him.

His best friend throughout elementary school  was Kain Vivi, his partner in crime. Together they caused many mischief, like crashing Lysa Santoro’s party. He wasn’t really happy for the move to Cocoa Javeed’s with his father, he missed Penny, he would have to live with two girls he barely knew…

But good things were right around the corner for Eduard and he would soon see it. First good thing was that he had been given his own room, in fact he and his father had the whole third floor for themselves. He is very smart and was always on top of his class, as a kid he thought of nothing but being a doctor like his dad or Penny but lately he is rethinking things…

He had a mayor crush on Lacey Alto but then he got to spend a lot of time with Sabina and realized that there is something there… They got together on one formal dance at school when his and his friends from the computer club hacked into the school computer and rigged the votes so he and Sabina would be crowned prom king and queen.

They are very happy together, she makes him act a lot braver then he really is and he is teaching her to play chess… But they are trying very hard to keep their relationship a secret, especially from their parents because they aren’t really sure how they would react to them dating while they are all living together…

On the latest dance he and Domynika were crowned prom king and queen which was a great surprise to everyone.

Andrew Prentiss

Andrew Prentiss moved to Sunset Valley as a child. He moved to town with his parents Harald and Elena, his two sisters Alyssa and Hannah and his little brother Tomas. Andrew adjusted to the new town rather quickly. He was always pretty popular and he enjoyed being outside, visiting his friend’s houses and so on. His best friend almost from day one was little Cocoa Brown, his neighbor. They were an inseparable duo and everyone believed there is a chance for something to happen between them. They couldn’t be more wrong.

Andrew never liked girls, not in a way it was expected at least. And he always knew what he was and also that his parents would never accept him for who he is, they just wouldn’t understand. So the only person who knew his secret was of course Cocoa. She supported him and dared him to confront his parents but Andrew just couldn’t…

He met Hoster in high school and they really hit off right from the start. He would sneak out at night to meet him, or Hoster would come out to the graveyard where Andrew worked during high school so they could be together without anyone knowing.

Andrew really liked his job at the graveyard, he loved writing epigraphs and as he grew older he seriously considered pursuing a job that corresponded to his creative side but of course his father wouldn’t hear it. At the time his parents were already divorced and his father was even worse then he was when they were all growing up. But Andrew was always a good judge of character and he recognized his father was hurting inside so he continued keeping his secret, he left his job and started working in the Science Facility, as his father wanted.

After a few years at the Science Facility however he switched to medicine which proved to be a better fit for him anyway. It was around that time that he got engaged to Hoster which made him pretty famous around town and he had no choice but to come out to his family. As expected his father kicked him out and didn’t speak to him again. He married Hoster and for a while at least everything seemed just right.

Andrew was working very hard in the hospital and Hoster joined the fire department where he head to work with Andrew’s father which made it hard for them to spend time together and strained their relationship, but it wasn’t the only problem they faced. Andrew himself coming from a big family had always wanted one of his own, it didn’t help they were at the time living with Clyde Belgen Hoster’s guardian, and his little girl Penelope who was very dear to Andrew and often reminded him what kind of blessing children were. Hoster however wouldn’t hear about it, they were busy as it was, children were too much work, etc. Those were Hoster’s excuses and true as they were Andrew was sure they would make it work together.

It took years, and many fights before he was finally able to convince Hoster to consider adoption and they did adopt, a beautiful little boy named Eduard. It was then that Andrew’s life became truly perfect. He was a very renowned and respected doctor, he got discounts pretty much everywhere he went, bookstores, restaurants… He nurtured his creative side by sometimes performing in local plays…

He helped a lot of people, including the famous Nina Caliente, giving her experimental treatment that helped her with her pregnancies. He also saved the life of Rhaenys Targeryen who would go and become his youngest brother Harry’s wife.

But as often happens things didn’t stay so good… Out of the blue his husband had a heart attack and died leaving him all alone. After it happened Andrew was a mess… Nothing could bring him back to his senses… He was even bad at his job, failing to help Morgana Wolff when she needed him…

But then he moved in with Cocoa, his childhood best friend who also lost a husband and had two kids Eduard’s age. It was then things started looking up for Andrew… He held a seminar at the spa, he joined Phoibe Santoro’s band… He even started dating again, he went out with a coworker, Geoffrey Landgraab but it went poorly. But things started going for the better, patients started hitting on him, he turned them down of course but it helped his self esteem. And then he met Patrick Crane, a younger burial specialist, who quickly became Andrew’s boyfriend. And one lovely winter day at the Nectary Andrew proposed to Patrick, right after helping Sara Caliente.

Andrew is a good heated and kind person, one that is kind to everyone they meet so as an extension people really like him. He is also a caffeine addict.

Cocoa Javeed

Cocoa Javeed and her mother Ebony were the first inhabitants of the emptied out Sunset Valley. Cocoa was not born in town but she remembered nothing of the life before, she was only a baby when her mother ran away from the miserable life she had hoping to give her daughter a better life.

Cocoa’s mother really did her best for her, she worked part time jobs so she could spend time with her, bought her toys, like her favorite teddy bear Marco from whom Cocoa never separated as a child but the highlight of Cocoa’s childhood was her visit to the town Art Gallery. Cocoa was entranced by this place and when her mother agreed for her to start art lessons there Cocoa knew she had found her passion, something she wanted to do for the rest of her life. To this day the Art Gallery is her favorite place in the whole world.

During her childhood years Cocoa also met Andrew Prentiss. He lived across the street from her with his brother and two sisters and was in the same class as Cocoa. It didn’t take long for the two of them to become best friends. They spent all their time together, sometimes at Cocoa’s house, and sometimes at Andrew’s house and there Cocoa acquainted herself with Andrew’s younger brother, Tomas. She didn’t know when she first developed a crush on Tomas, she knew everyone thought her and Andrew would get together but they didn’t know his secret, only Cocoa knew that, and only Andrew knew about Tomas.

As Cocoa started her teenage years her mother started seeing Jesse Hoves, his niece Mya was Cocoa’s best female friend ever since she moved to town and both of the girls were very supportive of this development and dreamed of becoming actual family. But it turned out to be just a dream… Like their dream of buying a house together right after graduation it never came true. Ebony got pregnant, gave birth to Cocoa’s little sister Rita and she and Jesse broke up. For a while Cocoa blamed her mother, she didn’t know any better then, like any teenager would she believed her mother was out to ruin her life.

During that period of her life she spent more time with the Prentiss family, Andrew had started seeing someone then so she was left to spend time with Tomas, not that she minded much, but it made it hard for her to hide her feelings any longer, they shared a kiss but nothing more, and pretty soon Cocoa learned Tomas and Mya were a couple. She was devastated of course,she tried not to show it and stay friends with both of them but it was eating her alive. She concentrated on her little sister since her mother was away a lot at that time, being a roadie for the raising rock star, Riam Gradle. Her sister grew up a quiet, but a really smart kid and Cocoa was always protective of her.During her final years of school Cocoa dated Parker Langerak but they broke up when Parker left town after graduation.

Then another shock came to Cocoa when her mother announced she was getting married, to none other but Andrew and Tomas’ father Harald. He divorced his wife after she got pregnant with none other then Rita’s biological father Jesse. It all felt like one messy soap opera to Cocoa and she wanted to just stay out of it. Her mother and Rita moved in with the Prentiss and she continued living in the same small house she had lived for the most of her life. Despite everything she never did start loving Tomas but the two of them becoming brother and sister really made things complicated and she was finally able to let it go… But not before many sleepless night spend drinking and talking with Andrew who was also dealing with problems of his own…

Her mother’s marriage did not last long and she was back home with Rita, and another baby, Cocoa’s first brother Harry. Harry would not remain Cocoa’s only brother for long, soon her mother’s rebound with Jack Bunch would result in another pregnancy and Hazel would be born. Cocoa helped with the babies as much as she could but she was still longing for love, and hoping to get over Tomas so she had a date with Skip Javeed and her little one night stand resulted in a pregnancy as well. Cocoa was freaking out but she was excited to be a mother, she was to have a little boy and name him Ethan but she lost her baby. The tragedy hit her hard, and even her art suffered. When her mother told her that maybe it was for the best she finally lost it and left home.

She found refuge at her mother’s friend and mentor’s house, Hazel’s godmother Dina Caliente. Dina and her wife Nala made her a room and a painting studio on their attic and Cocoa was very happy there. She made friends with their little girl Sara, she painted as much as she wanted… She missed her siblings, with whom she was very close but she didn’t go that far away and went to visit as much as she could.

She and Skip started seeing each other again and eventually they got married. It wasn’t long after that she learned Tomas and Rita were now seeing each other. She was shocked to say the least but she gave them her blessing, after all she had found love too. The only thing that was missing were children, and she was happy when she conceived for the second time. However it turned out to be the same thing as with Ethan all over again… She lost both the babies she was carrying but she never gave up. And some years later she gave birth to twin girls, Sabina and Dominyka.

After her lovely girls were born she and Skip got a house of their own, a lovely big house, fit for the whole big family their were planning to have. However just after the girl’s first birthday Skip had a heart attack and died leaving Cocoa and her babies all alone…

This left Cocoa alone and desperate, she tried her best to take care of her daughters, she had no time for anything, she lost contact with all her friends, even Mya and Andrew she stopped paining and before she knew it they were broke. Cocoa never really did have a job, her mother made her do some part time work at she spa when she was in high school but Cocoa hated it, all she ever wanted was to be an artist but now she was left to feed not only herself but her two baby daughters. She tried earning money playing her bass around town but id didn’t really put food on the table and so she went to the local newspaper and started as a paper girl, the same job her late husband had when he was a child.

She did surprisingly well, she was named Staffer of the Week on several occasions, she got promoted, she even started using a computer, something she dreaded, and avoided for the big part of her life. To make things even better Andrew came to live with her, he had lost his partner too and was left alone to raise a child the same age as her girls so it seemed a great idea for the two of them to deal with their problems together, as they always had.

Cocoa is doing well, her daughters are in high school, she finds some time to paint again, and she had even started a humor book: “Sorry for the convenience.” On Phoibe Santoro’s latest party she also met a cute guy, Hank Goddard.
