Vlad was very much in love with his new wife, Miranda.

Of course, the inevitable happened, and Miranda became pregnant.  She gave birth to a son, Viran.

He was the 10th generation of males in the DeMarr family (if not with the same surname. The Lillards have also just reached 10 generations but not through the male line).

Daeron seemed content.  A male to carry on the line.

Some sad news,  however.  He was just returning from a stint as cult leader, when he was met by death,

and sent on his way…

Miranda was there to mourn him.

Daeron had died at the age of 70 (real age about 76 – he’d drunk of the cow plant).

Vlad mourned later in private.

Viran quickly grew to a toddler, cheering up his parents after the death.

The first 10th generation child (male line) in the neighbourhood.  (I’ll review the family when he’s older.)

Then the news that Vlad’s mother had died at the retirement home.  She was 78.

Over at Radu’s house, Radu’s son, Ivan, became a witch as well.
