The Longwei's
Crina: Elder Female - Sagittarius - Fortune - LTW: Become Hand of Posideon
Alina: Female Child - Virgo
Beniamin: Male Child - Sagittarius
Doina - Female Toddler - Aquarius
Elisabeta - Female Toddler - Taurus

At the very end of summer, right before the start of fall Crina packed up her 4 grandkids and moved them all to Persperia, mostly to get the kids as far away from the tragic memories as possible, and to hopefully find help with raising the 4 kids alone. Crina didn't have much money, and unfortunately, the little money her son and his wife had scraped together wasn't enough to support all four kids on for long. Crina and the kids moved into 1 Long Road, it was right by the little mall of the town and Crina hoped they would be able to fit all 5 of them in the small 2 bedroom house.

That afternoon part of the Drake family, their neighbors across the street came over to say hi.

Crina: How are the sandwhiches Caedmon? Sorry it's not much of a meal
Cademon: They are just fine Crina. I know it's not always easy to entertain on short notice.

Beniamin, "Beni" for short, and Alina played on the floor while the toddlers were busy as always.

Crina had to wonder about Epona and Belinu however, they didn't seem to be able to keep their hands off of each other. Although it was nice to see a couple so in love.

With Caedmon's help Crina got the toddlers into their chairs and got them fed while Beni and Alina munched on their own sandwhiches.

How am I ever going to be able to do this all on my own...Crina wondered. As that final day in summer burned away into Fall Crina knew she needed a job, and soon. She searched the paper and took a job in the business field, not her ideal, but it paid the most money, and that's what they needed. The next chore was to find a good nanny to take care of the children while she was gone. During the day Beni and Alina would be in school, but she knew she couldn't be there for them when they got home and Doina and Elisabeta, "Beta" for short, needed someone there full time until they were old enough to go to school.

During the fall, after Beni and Alina got home from school one day, Doina and Beta had their birthdays, and turned from toddlers into children. Doina managed to grow-up well, but Beta was more affected by the move, her parents passing, and the way life was going. She was going to have some catching up to do if life was going to turn out ok for her. Crina knew it was only a matter of time until Alina and Beni grew up too, and while it was a bitter-sweet moment to watch them grow, she knew the teenagers help would be welcome when it came. Now if only she could hold out until then, because as Crina knew age was rushing up on her, and all she could hope for was to push it off long enough to get the children prepared to live life for themselves.
