This is from Venura, and thus, mainly concerns Cleo and Julie's characters. To skip this story click here.


Stella Mchenry:
Sep 02, 2002 05:40 PM

The following morning, they awake to the smell of somthing bruning downstairs.


Hugo McHenry:
Sep 02, 2002 09:34 PM

Hugo is rather anxious, so he wakes quickly, and hurries downstairs, in his pajamas.


Alex Indigo:
Sep 03, 2002 05:13 PM

Alex is over the stove, wearing a white apron.

"I have never used a electric stove....before...how..do you.."

He starts turning nobs, making the flame higher.
"ummm that didn't work!"

Stella comes running down stairs, and sees what is going on.

"Alex your so stupid!"

she turns the nob off.
"Out, I'll cook breakfast, just go, and get dress and wash off."

She takes the apron.


Hugo McHenry:
Sep 03, 2002 05:45 PM

"I didn't know you cooked, Stella," Hugo says quietly, after giving Alex a rather sharp look. "Is there anything I can help with?"

((If it was an electrical fire they probably would've had to extinguish it (it would've been something on fire, like food or paper). If it was just a gas stove, then it wouldn't be an electric stove....))


Stella Mchenry:
Sep 03, 2002 05:53 PM
(( oppss well I had a gas stove since i was 13, it always caught fire^^* But electric, well I imagine it different then the ones we have now....))

Stella looked at the stove, it seemed it was burning a pieace of paper.

"yes I learned a bit....just a bit...from my mother."

She grabbed stuff from the fridge and in about 20 minuates they have breakfast ready.

"Now Alex, go upstairs and get Michelle."

Alex runs up stairs quietly.

He opens the door, and walks in.
He grabs a couple of dolls, and squats down behing the end of the bed, placeing the dolls like puppets so Michelle can only see the dolls.

Alex starts singing a love song, and making the dolls dance.


Michelle McHenry:
Sep 03, 2002 06:00 PM

Before Michelle opens her eyes, she sings along, half-asleep, and a bit off-key. She slowly opens her eyes and sees the dolls moving. She screams and jumps back in the bed. "What the devi--" She covers her mouth, but still looks rather frightened.


Alex Indigo:
Sep 03, 2002 06:02 PM

Alex comes up stills singing.
He smiles and stops.
"sorry didn't mean to scare you, just wanted to tell you breakfast is ready, and that I ." Pause and kissed her hand. "Love you."


Michelle McHenry:
Sep 03, 2002 06:10 PM

Michelle blushes. "That's awful forward," she says, getting out of bed. She's wearing a set of Stella's old pajamas, which are far too large on her. She gives him a swift kiss on the cheek. "I'll be down once I'm dressed. But watch where you're coming into next time; it ain't decent to have a man in my boudoir, remember?"

Hugo comes to the doorway, rather worried. "Michelle! Are you all right?"

"Alex just scared me a bit," Michelle says.

Hugo sees the blush on Michelle's face, and glowers at Alex. "What were you doing in here?"


Alex Indigo:
Sep 03, 2002 06:13 PM

Alex is still holding the dolls.
He just lifts them up so Hugo can see.
"I was just playing with dolls..."
He puts them down, and puts his hands in his pockets.


Michelle McHenry:
Sep 03, 2002 06:16 PM

"Well, *you* shouldn't be in here either," Michelle says, sticking her tongue out at Hugo. She rather shoves the two men out of her bedroom so she can change clothes.

Hugo heads back downstairs without another word, though his ears are distinctly red.


Alex Indigo:
Sep 03, 2002 06:20 PM

Alex just crosses his arms.
and shakes his head.
"So smells good, think it tates good, or shall we be posion? hehehhe!"

Stella heard the comment.
"oh really, well I'll add *rat* posion in yours Alex!"

She puts her hands on her hips, and tapping on foot.

"Hugo...arent you gonna back me up?" Looks at him with her stunning green eyes. "Like hit him on the back of his brainless head?"


Hugo McHenry:
Sep 03, 2002 08:17 PM

"That wouldn't be polite. Even if he *does* deserve it. Although if he doesn't want to eat breakfast, then I'd be happy to eat his share." Hugo gives Alex another angry look; Stella DID lose her mother the previous evening, after all.


Alex Indigo:
Sep 04, 2002 05:34 PM

Alex looks down.
"Yeah I think we all know that, and are trying to move forward..."

Stella sets the table, putting pancakes and bacon.

"Heh, Well come before it get cold."


Hugo McHenry:
Sep 04, 2002 05:46 PM

Hugo sits down at the table but waits until Michelle comes down to start eating. Michelle's down in a couple minutes, wearing her clothes from yesterday. "Smells good; who made it? Not Hugo, I'll bet," she says, flopping down in a chair.

((Hugo wasn't supposed to SAY Stella's mother just died the evening before; he was just thinking it. Usually when I don't put things in quotes, I mean it. ^_^;;;))


Alex Indigo:
Sep 04, 2002 05:49 PM

Alex lifts an eyebrow at Michelle and smiles.
He takes a bite of pancake, and protends to choke and falls to the floor.


Stella just lightly kicks him with her foot.

"Stupid jerk.."


Michelle McHenry:
Sep 04, 2002 05:56 PM

Michelle looks at Stella, wide-eyed, then kneels next to Alex. "Are you all right?"

Hugo starts eating, calmly.

((How does the food taste? Is Stella a good cook? My dad said his mom was always leaving parts of eggshells in whatever she made...^^;;;))


Alex Indigo:
Sep 05, 2002 05:18 AM

Alex winks at her.

((Oh the food is great, melts right in your mouth! Shes good because her father would always have Anna sick, and stella always had to cook cuz he fired all the servants.))

Alex sits up.
"It's a miracle, I'm alive, I must be immortal!" He grabs Michelle and a hug. "Oh just kidding Michelle the food great...just like to bug little miss Stella over there." He laughs as he clibs back up to eat.


Michelle McHenry:
Sep 05, 2002 11:33 AM

Michelle smiles a little. "That's not very nice," she says reproachfully.

Hugo continues eating, his expression unreadable. "This is better than what the cook makes," he says, looking at Stella. "Keep this up and you may spoil me."


Stella Mchenry:
Sep 05, 2002 11:47 AM

She giggles a little.
"why thank you darling."


Alex takes another bite, and smiles,looking like a child withe sourp running down his mouth.


Michelle McHenry:
Sep 05, 2002 11:57 AM

Michelle eats with a very healthy appetite, not paying any attention to Alex. Hugo, of course, eats in a much more dignified manner, still surprised his wife is this talented.
