Saunders 2 – Round 16: ‘Message in a Bottle, End’

Filed under: Saunders — Tags: , , , , , , — Mao @ 11:16 pm

In the morning, Tracey made a frantic call to Ryu’s cellphone. He rushed over as quickly as he could, surprised to see the house was still intact and Tracey was there. He hadn’t anticipated that Gordon would hand over his base of operations… unless he’d been wrong all along and this was simply a decoy.

“Michael’s gone, Ryu! He took him!” Tracey wailed, unable to cry. She had run out of tears several hours ago. “He said he has proof… I mean, of… us. And that… the courts–he can’t take my baby! He’s a monster! Who knows what he’ll do to him…”

“Tracey, calm down,” Ryu began, unable to make heads or tails of her frantic cries. “Gordon isn’t a man of the law and if you give it time, perhaps you can come to an arrangement. Michael will be able to make his own decisions in a few years. Let him decide what he wants to do.”

“But I want him now, Ryu. I don’t want to miss everything… he’s my son, my son!” She said desperately, falling back onto the sofa. “What if he forgets about me?”

“He won’t, you’re his mother,” Ryu said, a painful memory of his own coming to the surface. ‘Be good, okay?’ He brushed it off. “You never forget your mother, no matter what.”

Over the next few weeks, Tracey tried to deal with her grief. It was certainly helpful to have Ryu around. She felt incredibly guilty for ruining his marriage, even if he assured her it had been in ruins beforehand. Still, without any support, Tracey wasn’t quite sure what she’d do.

She was burning things worse than ever now. She even started a fire. Thank goodness for fire alarms. Being alone in the house was incredibly troubling to Tracey, but it was awkward yet for her to think of ‘moving on’. Sure, she and Ryu were close… but was it a true kind of closeness, or merely convenience?

It wasn’t long before Tracey realized that she had been careless in her grief and was now very much pregnant. She was thankful there was no possibility it was a remnant from her former husband, that had been much too long ago. She wasn’t quite sure how to go about telling Ryu, though. He was older than her and already had three grown children. Would he really feel like raising another?

She shouldn’t have worried, Ryu was more than happy about it. He knew his children wouldn’t be too pleased, but they would get over it. Roman would explain things over like he always did, he was a little too much Thomas for Ryu at times, but he had to say, it came in handy.

Ryu wasted no time moving in and helping Tracey out. It wasn’t until a month or so before Tracey was to give birth that they were married, very quietly. Two divorced people hooking up would normally breed disaster, but these two people were a different sort.

Tracey gave birth to fraternal twins, Marcus and Shelly. They both had brown hair and her tan skin, while Shelly had Henry Saunder’s eyes and Marcus Risa Yu’s. (Those two eyes are running rampant lately, what’s up with that?)


Note from Mao: Okay, after this update, this house will be known as ‘Yu 2′ simply because Gordon has moved to Lauren’s and made that house, ‘Saunders 2′. They’ll keep their rotation schedules, but simply change the name of where they relocated. As for Ryu and Tracey, the divorces had barely FINALIZED before they spun up wants to marry one another. Also, TWINS? SRSLY GUYS, you’re killing me. It’s going to be time for a plague in the population keeps exploding.


  1. *waits patiently for the next twin birth and the point at which Mao’s head ASPLODES*

    Sheesh, Gordon, don’t be so upset over your marriage ending. I hope Lauren knows what she’s in for…

    Shush, you!! Hahaha, Gordon isn’t that upset. But he does have an image to maintain… ;)

  2. Oh my. Alot going on here. xD Twins! So many babies. A plague might be needed xD and poor Tracey but…that’s what happens when you care more about getting off an island than about who your lover really is. At least she has Ryu to comfort her for now. And Michael…wonder how he will end up, being raised by Gordon. xD

    Ugh, no more twins! Plague is imminent, LOL. Michael should turn out fine, provided Gordon’s little plan works out…

  3. “to be time for a plague in the population keeps exploding”

    Did you mean if the population keeps exploding? It was confusing, I reread it like nine times before I got it.


    I dislike her- it’s bad that Gordon took Michael with him (to the other hussy’s house, I assume) but she got what she got for being dirty.

    TWINS?! Good luck. :D

    In = if–typos happen, especially late at night. Haha, sorry, Katarina isn’t going anywhere. Gordon isn’t really a bad person. :P Neither was Janine. It’s always easiest to make villains out of those who don’t fit a mold. ;) Ugh, TWINS. NO MORE!

  4. Poor Tracey. :( She really had no idea what she was getting into with Gordon. I hope she and Ryu can be happy together, at least.

    Haha, Tracey brought it on herself, but at least she has a second chance.

  5. Lol, plague. That would actually be pretty hilarious! And drama-filled, I’m sure! I love that Ryu and Tracey have gotten together. Now maybe they can both be happy. They’re kids are destined to be adorable!

    Hey Mandie! Hahaha, of course, there is always drama. ;) Here’s hoping. I’m upset about their non-cc skintones, though.

  6. yikes-what drama!

    Hahaha… yeah, that’s my thought.

  7. Gordon gives me the creeps. He can be so cold and callous, poor little Michael.

    Twins?! Poor Mao lol It’s a good thing you put that chart at the top of each post or I’d never keep everyone straight :)

    Haha, but he’s never that way to Michael… though we haven’t seen that yet. Yeah, those charts are becoming a necessity now. I’m glad it makes it easier.

  8. OMG all those babies you have in your neighbourhood.

    Gordon didn’t make that good an impression this round, but I still love him… I have a weak spot for the ‘bad guy’.

    Hahaha, I KNOW! It’s an EXPLOSION… no more babies. Gah.

  9. Wow, what an update! Tracey and Ryu sure didn’t take much time to get over their respective divorces.
    Now that I think of it, the Saunders brothers really do sort of pass their wives around, don’t they? I guess old Henry did a good job of teaching them to share… XD

    Haha, they sure didn’t. No sooner were they both divorced did the engagement wants spin up! Sheesh. I’m not sure what’s up with all the sharing, LOL.

  10. Hmmm.. I wonder if the Saunders men have a polyamorous gene. :)

    It sure would seem like it!
