Sorrow finally grew to an elder (so no more kids, thankfully).

Romain helped with teaching his little brother to walk.

But it was Erike who spent the most time with Bjorn.

Gunnar spent a little time with him.

Sorrow, of course, basically ignored him.

Romain was becoming an accomplished musician,

and showing off a little.

He finally headed off to university, leaving the mad family to it.

Over at Bluewater village Serenity had her baby – a boy they called Tyler.

She’s heading back to work straight away so hired a nanny.  Serenity is an animal linguist and she has one of those dastardly man-eating plants outside.
