This is the twenty-first chapter of The Family and I hope you guys will stick around to see how the story plays itself out. If you wish to see the synopsis of the novel, please view my profile where it is my first journal entry. Watch me if you wish to keep up with the story ^.'
Cynthia reports to Father about the assignment he's given her. Her school work slipping, causes her to cram in a study night; only to be interrupted by a surprise visitor.
Escape school! I feel the same way Cynthia! Oh Cynthia, just hold the book in your hand, it ain’t worth falling off a desk for. Oh le gasp, Cynthia’s grades are slipping. This woman has got to get her priorities straight, like grades matter in the bigger picture. Cynthia is going to be a ninja healer, she doesn’t need good grades at school, she needs good grades at Family HQ.
Assignment completion! I want to learn what Cynthia has learned! I feel like I’m in my favourite class Is knocking not required before entry into Father’s room? Cool.
May I ask what a ‘sheeple’ is?
Oh wait, there’s an explanation. Silly me it’s funny you should put it that way, that people are like sheep. That’s essentially what religion teaches us. We’re like sheep and we need guidance and much like sheep, we often wander off and get ourselves in trouble when we lose track of who our real sheppard is and go after the wolves dressed as sheep, but you could also say that The Family is a whole flock of sheep, because the wolf never attacks the herd, it picks off the weak-minded that has wandered away from the flock. . . oh the farming tangent.
I feel like Rick wants to off her ‘teacher’ for discussing overthrowing of government. Their relationship makes me sad they’re not being honest with each other and it’s making their relationship distant and hollow. Even the simplest conversation about definition of words turns into suspicion and quick thinking and lies. Rick, get your act together!! This man isn’t going to win any Father of the Year awards *coughgivestheawardtoAidencough*
Cynthia’s been in the Family for a few months? Good to know
Ah Lance, climbing into a girl’s bedroom window are we? In some alternate dimension somewhere where all fictional characters in the world exist, Lance and Jay are hanging out and discussing their bad habits i.e. climbing in and out of girl’s rooms. Bad bad-boys... I kid, I love Lance. He needs to kiss Cynthia today. I am waiting with pompoms
Cynthia, don’t hold your happiness in. Let it out! Let it out and kiss the boy. Dooooo itttt.
Or just challenge him, that’s fun too. I’m offended too! Why can’t she come in, Lance?! Piss off, she’s going to HQ. They’re such a couple, its adorable. Time for some honesty in the relationship, Lance, have your imaginary meetings with Jaybird taught you nothing about women? Good, he’s just as clueless. . . I vote for ‘both be happy’. Go for it Cynthia, he’s a genius, make him do your homework. Bat your eyes and make him do your homework for you.
after all that adorable back and forth you drop this bomb?! They’re capturing her dad!?! Oh you’re good. Very sneaky. I’ll get payback for this, you just watch... I’ve lost the plot of this feedback session. Oh Lance, I think Cynthia should DEFINITELY be involved in her Dad’s kidnapping. It’ll work perfectly. She’ll be like: dad let’s go out to dinner and he’ll be like: aww, my little girl wants to spend time with me and then on the way a van will pull up and kidnap him and then she’ll be able to interrogate him too: are you really my father?! Did Mom die a natural death or was it orchestrated by the Force? What is my favourite colour?!! – it would be epic. Yep. Aaron’s involved! I don’t know why I’m pleased about this, but I think that’ll be fun somehow. Aaron + Lance = awesome team.
*spasm* he didn’t put his hand over hers!?! bad Lance. Give her a hug, you’re abducting her Dad, it’s the least you can do. Dinner and a hug. . . Rick is involved with the Force, Cynthia knows for sure. I know she knows. I can see it in her eyes... no I can’t, but I have read her thoughts about it in a previous chapter. Lance, if you wanna destroy the base, what you do is that you get Tick to put a few of his specially designed tick-tocks on and around it and boom. Problem solved. I would like my red ribbon of ninja-dom now, I planned a whole mission
OH MY GOD, just kiss already. That’ll be just as effective at making each other blush than smiling sweetly, but the kissing you might enjoy. I’m so close to throwing my pompoms at you people: ADMIT YOUR FEELINGS! DOOO ITTT!
I forgot he got shot too, he was so chilled, I almost convinced myself that the Nero-confrontation-shooting-death thing was just a hallucination of mine. Shoulda known better, my imagination isn’t that good. Poor Lance, he’s dying, isn’t he? This makes me sad.
I didn’t think you could make me love these characters more than I already do, until I hit this line: and her innocence made him weak – Oh my God, I’m just a puddle of mush right now. Super Lance and his weakness for Cynthia
I’m going to hurt Rick LANCE WAS ABOUT TO ASK HER SOMETHING AFTER AN INTIMATE MOMENT OF STARING INTO EACH OTHER’S EYES!! why is everyone getting in their way? Don’t go, Lance
Okay, I’m glad I read this chapter. It’s got build up towards the mission, Lance-Cynthia relationship, Rick being abducted and essentially what the state of the world is and what the Family is fighting against. Ignoring my childishness whilst feedbacking, this was a terrific chapter and I can’t wait to read about Rick being interrogated by Lance and Aaron. I think it’ll be interesting, I wonder how they’ll approach the interrogation thing. Who will be good cop and who will be bad cop? Or will they both be bad cop? This’ll be good
Maybe ‘other’ Lance will come out to play It’ll either happen in 22, 23, 24 or 25. For sure. One of them. Maybe even two. Oooh
Haha. Yes, sheeple. That's actually a word my history teacher (whom I based Father from) came up with. I loved just how suiting that phrase was and how it could relate to anyone following a blind leader, that I just had to use it in my novel.
Aiden is definitely a better dad than Rick by a long shot.
Yes, this story has taken place during the course of a few months.
Ha, we should so make some sort of collaboration piece with Lance and Jay one day. They should so meet at some club where Jay and his band decide to play, while Lance and Aaron are there to take down some sort of gang leader running the place. That would be amusing
Yep, my poor baby grows weak to her innocence. It's because he's been around so much darkness his whole life, that the innocence in her comforts him and brings warmth to him that he hasn't felt in a long time.
Aw, Lance isn't dying. He'll be fiiiinnnee. Maybe...
Yeah, Rick ruins everything He's like the nazi of love~
Aaron and Lance are the best duo ever. They get things done quick, clean, and skillfully, while their bromance makes it entertaining to watch.
Good cop bad cop? Huh... I would say Tick is the bad cop and Father is the good cop in that situation. Well, Lance and Nina also do that one thing though...
Other Lance will be for a split second in this novel, since Wars is all about it.
