It’s late June as Alyssa opens her eyes to see the love of her life, Jax, still sleeping beside her. She gently smiles and kisses his cheek before plucking herself upwards into a sitting position to stretch and wake herself up the rest of the way. I’m living in a fairytale… love of my life beside me, ranch starting up on a crisp, summer morning, and his adorable toddler twins cooing in their nursery in our grand home, but something doesn’t feel right. She thinks to herself as she slips away from the bed and over to the balcony which looks out to their barn, and fields where the horses will be put out shortly. For a moment she simply stands there still with her hands lying gently on the rail as she watches the sun rise, but soon finds herself stirring to do something different and exciting. She glances over her shoulder, as she turns to face their bedroom, to look back at her fiancé lovingly before tiptoeing through the room, making sure to grab her cell on the way, and down the stairs and through the house to travel down to her largest barn.

“Look at them all.” She whispers to herself as she opens the door and breathes in the smell of equine and the fresh bedding placed down the night before for them. “I love them all.” She mentions with a gentle nod as she wraps her arms around herself. It is a slightly chilly morning, one that certainly is perfect for riding, but a little colder than wanted for someone wearing only a short nightgown. She smiled softly as one of the horses neighed at her and another, nearer one, nickered. Walking over to the little mare which had just nickered, a smile broadens over her face. “You wanna go riding, don’t you?” She giggles before pausing slightly and tilting her head at the mare through the bars, “I do too.” She sighs and begins walking away from the mare, but the mare nickers again and Lyss can hear her pawing at the ground. The smile creeps up on her face again as she turns back around, suddenly grinning as a glint of happiness flickers in her eyes like fire, “Well, maybe a short run won’t do any harm…” Grabbing up the halter and lead on the mare’s door, she slid her finger across the name, Arienelle, before entering the stall and haltering the little mare and jumping up on her and lightly kicking her to make her trot out of the stall and out to just… run…

~~~

“Melody, c’mon! We need to go pick up Aunt Amber from the airport.” Will calls from the door of their apartment. It’s nothing special; one bedroom, one bathroom, one master suite, kitchen and dining area, and a sitting area with a small television. They had to get a second bed for Amber to sleep on while she’s staying with them for at least this year. Their parents are hoping the new set up with him and his family will provide her with the same stability, a little less sisterly drama, and maybe also a few more friends. Will hasn’t heard much about his littlest sister’s situation, but he does know it’s been rough on her.

“Coming Daddy!” Melody calls back as she runs out in a cute little outfit, perfect for meeting her aunt in. She reaches up to her father wanting to be picked up. With a light chuckle, Will scoops her up in his arms and plants a kiss on her shoulder. “We’ll be back with Amber soon.” He mentions as he gives Chelsea a quick kiss and heads out with his daughter.

Only an hour later, they arrive at the airport and find Amber, with her long, chocolate-colored hair and bright blue eyes, standing very lady-like on her own in a corner of the waiting room. Will immediately crinkles his nose at her attire. No wonder she doesn’t have any friends… Has she not compared her clothes to everyone else’s recently? He wonders to himself as he watches Melody run over and give her a big hug, unable to note his dear sister’s evident shock at being grabbed by the child in such a hug. “My dear brother,” She smiles as she gingerly picks up her niece and holds her against her hip, “how may you be on this lovely day? Your daughter seems to be a rather joyous type. I think you have raised her decently well. How is your fiancée, Chelsea? Is she well? I have unfortunately not seen her since I was very young.” Amber reminisces and questions as Will forces himself to walk over to his sister, still wondering how she could possibly even be allowed to wear a dress of such odd nature. Shouldn’t a girl her age be wearing skinny jeans and a t-shirt? No wonder their parents sent her to him.

“I’m doing pretty well, Amber, and thank you. I think Melody is normally a happy girl, but there are times when she begs to differ.” He smirks gently over at Mellie as Amber sets her back down on the ground, as lady-like as she had picked her up. Trying to push his thoughts of her odd behavior away, he continues, “Chels is great! She’s excited to see you, and I think she’d be happy to take you shopping sometime. She loves shopping and getting nice stuff.”

Amber’s eyes darken ever so slightly as she metaphorically crawls a little deeper into her shell. I like what I wear, though… She inwardly reminds herself, knowing how impolite it would be to show that she had caught his rude comment. I like who I am… Has my brother changed so much as to no longer accept me for who and what I am? I do not think I can believe what I am hearing right now. When Amber had told her parents about Lolita dresses and wanting to hold more elegance than people today do, they had been proud of her and willing to help her and support her. However, that love and support seems to have stayed in Florida when she decided to fly here. Ever so slightly, she shifts on her feet and drops her eyes down to the ground before gently curtsying. “Well, brother, I believe that dear Chelsea may be missing us by now, may we be off to see her?” She asks him curiously as she raises herself back up, pulling on a pair of small, white gloves which match the frills on her light blue dress.

“Yupp…” He picks his daughter up and starts out of the airport, hearing his sister’s light footsteps behind him, he decides to not help her with her carry on. “They told me they’d put your bags in my car. So, we should be good.” He mentions as they get to the car where, sure enough, her bags lay in the trunk, waiting to move into a new hanging closet. After settling themselves in the car, they head back to their home to once again see Chelsea.

~~~

Crisella drags her feet as she gets out of bed to hear her little, two-year-old son bawling his eyes out in the other room. “Ugh! I don’t wanna deal with this. It’s too early.” She complains to herself as she wanders in and picks him up out of his crib. He coos at her for a short moment before starting to cry again. Dragging him into the kitchen, she pulls out some leftover pizza and reheats it in the microwave and pours out some cheerios cereal, with the milk too, for Ardonel. “Bubby, you can’t keep crying so early in the morning.” She sighs as she sits down with him on her lap at the kitchen island.

“Bu’ Mommy! I hungwy.” Ardonel whines as he picks up the spoon and messily eats his cereal. Unable to hold her frown, Crisella giggles and smiles at him, pulling him off her lap to place him in his high chair with his cereal before getting her nuked pizza.
“You just couldn’t sleep another hour, could you?” She asks him with a slight smirk as she takes a bite and grabs him several napkins. She couldn’t love her son more, but she still wishes that his father was Christopher and not that jock from school. Cooing a little, her son continues spooning the yummy, honeyed cereal into his mouth, making Crisella smile a little more.

When Chelsea hears the door to her apartment open she turns off the TV and straightens her coral sundress that just touches the tops of her knees. She smiles as her fiancé walks in and waves at melody. When she finally sees Amber her smile falters slightly is that really the same girl? her clothes looked old and quite honestly outdated. Her surprise is soon masked with a warm smile as she hugs Amber "Hey Amber! Wow it's been so long. You're all grown up! How are you?" She catches Will's eye and pulls a face slightly before focusing her chocolate eyes back on Amber,trying her best to look upbeat and friendly. "Um do you have anything you want to do today? We can maybe go have lunch somewhere.. Uh unless you want to hang out here? I'm sure Alyssa would be happy to see you too" She said happily in her peppy,upbeat voice as she walked over to Will and fit herself close next to him. She didn't like being mean but really, what happened to this girl?Is it some sort of weird rebellion phase?

Amber grimaces slightly as she sees the shock in her soon-to-be sister-in-law's face and is hugged by her as well. Attempting to not harm Chelsea's feelings, she gingerly hugs her back, thankful for when she pulls away. Curtsying slightly with a nod of her head, she replies to Chelsea's frantic commenting and questioning, "Yes, my friend, I am fifteen years of age now. Unfortunately, this means I will be attending Appaloosa Plains Academy for my further schooling. My parents believe I will find a way to make more lasting friendships here. Anyhow, that is nothing to be concerned with, my brother mentioned you might like to take me shopping. It would be ever so rude of me to decline such an offer, yes?" Her gentle smile and soft eyes say everything she is feeling in the moment: Her sadness of not being accepted by them, her happiness to see them again anyways, and her willingness to please her family members.

William catches his love's gaze and returns her grimace back with equal or greater intensity. He really wishes the best for his youngest sister and is worried that people will make fun of her. The Archer name isn't exactly big anymore, so she doesn't have that automatic popularity to ride on. People will hurt her. He doesn't want to see her hurt, that's all. "Melody, sweetie, why don't you drag Amber's bag into your room, okay?" He asks her softly, but firmly. Melody nods her head and runs off with her aunt's baggage, struggling to carry it through the small apartment. "Well, you ladies do whatever you want, but be back for dinner tonight because I'm making something special." He grins and hustles himself over to his domain, the kitchen. Chelsea's not allowed to touch the stove or his coffeemaker anymore.

Chelsea's face lights up when Amber mentions shopping. That's good! Maybe she'll want to uh blend in with the other kids . She seems oddly mature for her age. "yeah Mellie do you want to come shopping with us or do you want to stay here?" She asks as she grabs her bag and her keys "bye Will see you later" she walks over and kisses him "is there anything you need?"
***********
Jax wakes up and finds the other half of the bed empty.I Guess Alyssa is awake already? . He gets up not bothering to put on a shirt or pants over his boxers as he walks into the twins' room and finding them still sleeping. Cel was going to have them for the next week and then Jax was planning to hire a nanny. He walked around looking for Alyssa and then headed out to the barn where he found her. Oh.. With the other guy. Ihe still didn't know if he trusted Carth. There's just something about him. He grabbed a pair of jeans that He kept in the barn and put them on but didn't bother with a shirt before walking over to Alyssa.

Crisella was shocked by his response and weakness to being hit and, no matter what he thought, he had deserved it. She knew that he wouldn't have listened to her words, simply thrown them away and ignored them. At least her hitting him would make him realize that she didn't appreciate him or his words in /her/ home. Well, it wasn't really hers, but she still considered it so. "Listen, Marcel, you can act that you're the poor little child who has been shipped off to his uncle's against his will, but my words weren't about to get your attention because you disappreciate me. However, I don't appreciate you calling me rude names..." She trailed off and glared at him for a moment before picking up the chocolates which he had dropped and shoving them back into his hands. "Hitting you was my way of saying 'stop playing games with me.'" She growled at him, able to see the sadness in his eyes. In all honesty, she did feel fairly awful for hitting him, but there was no way in hell she was about to show him her sympathy in the moment.

Marcel's question shocked her even further as he asked to be excused, and she didn't even respond to it; but, simply turned away and left to continue on to the kitchen. As much as she hated the child, she also knew his pain in being left at someone else's home with whom they were not even close to. Hadn't she had that happen when she was a baby? What about being kicked out of his home? That counts too. Whether he would believe it or not, this little encounter earned him an ally in the sometimes vicious world of Appaloosa Plains.

~~~

Melody shook her head at Chelsea's offer. "Daddy is taking me to see my horsey and then we're going to take him over to Alyssa's for something. I guess she bought him..." She trailed off at the mention of Alyssa buying him off the current owner because she loved Alyssa, but that would mean Darrin would become one of the practice horses for kids who wanted to learn English riding and she didn't really like that idea. It simply was not okay with her to lose Darrin as /her/ horse. "Have fun, though!" She giggled as she began walking back to her room yet again.

"Well, I don't think I do. Have fun with Amber." Will grins as he kisses her back and watches Amber follow her out, shaking his head. He closes the door behind himself before walking into the kitchen and grabbing some leftovers.

Amber obediently followed Chelsea out to the car without making a comment. She could already tell that this shopping trip would be miserable and nothing like those which her mom and her had had. Those had surprisingly been fun because her mom would help her pick out the most darling accessories and shoes to match with the dresses they had bought online together.
