Anderson 2 – Round 19: ‘The Look of Love, Pt. 1′

Filed under: Anderson — Tags: , , , , , — Mao @ 2:11 pm

Kate is a single mother, but her son Hugh has turned out to be a good kid, even if he ignored going to University.  Better yet, he seems to have a pretty nice girlfriend, too.

Kenya was elated when Hugh visited her at the grocery store.  She ignored the looks from her boss and allowed him to embrace her in the middle of her shift.  They had met a year or two prior and had kept their relationship quiet due to the fact that she had been in college.  She left University and moved to Boreal Springs just to be closer to him.

Now he was an adult and he wanted her to come and live with him.

While she was busy giggling over his childhood room, Hugh surprised her with a ring.  She said yes, of course.  It was what she had been waiting for!  She was happy to find out that he had an actual adult bedroom he had been staying in, though.  She moved in without another thought and met his mother, Kate, who was startled by all of this, but happy for her son.

Kenya was happy to finally have the money to update her wardrobe and let her hair hang freely.  She was a lovely girl, something Hugh reminded her of constantly.  He was so sweet, who wouldn’t have waited?  She had heard stories of his lothario father, but saw no hints of that in her beloved Hugh and so never gave it another thought.  She was too busy planning their wedding and thinking of what to name their children.  She dreamed for her kids to complete college.

She brought with her a black lab named Lyra.  Thankfully, Iorek and Lyra got along famously and everything within the household was harmonius.  Kate’s head was still spinning with how rapidly everything was happening, but what could she say?  She couldn’t deny her son the love he so desperately sought.

Hugh and Kenya were married in the afternoon, under a clear, cloudless sky and in the company of close friends and family.  Hugh was glad to have his father there, and was surprised when his mother even made casual conversation with him.  It was all for his sake, he knew, but he appreciated the effort.

Most of all, he was happy to finally have Kenya.

Hugh was sure he wouldn’t be like his father, he couldn’t possibly love anyone the way he did Kenya.  Ignoring the tension of the guests (Fou-Lu was present and Elena was ignoring him, instead sitting with Michael, her half-brother and getting looks from Shang), the two enjoyed their first married moments together.

Of course, the fact that it was his son’s wedding did nothing to hamper Shang’s romantic pursuits.  Elena Davis had grown considerably since he’d seen her and he had to admit, she was one smoking hot co-ed!  His nephew, Fou-Lu, had been her beau for a long time… but they were broken up now.  There was no harm in a little flirting, something Elena did not decline.


Note from Mao: And so the mysterious blonde’s purpose is revealed!  And Shang, you dog.  What are you thinking?  And Elena, seriously?  SHANG?  Let me tell you that this was purely autonomous and these two were heart farting all over the place.  Poor Fou-Lu, LOL!


  1. WOW. Shang, its your eldest son’s wedding! And Elena isn’t such a sweet little girl anymore, is she? If she wants someone to take something seriously, she should run far far far from Shang.

    Other than that, this house is so adorable.

    Haha, I know! I have no idea what’s going on there.

  2. WTF? I was going to be all like, “GEEZ, SHANG!” but no…instead…GEEZ, ELENA! I expected Shang to mess with SOMEONE but you…you is being bad! To the creepy vampire basement with you! Anywho, I am glad Hugh has found some happiness. Kenya looks really pretty. <3

    LOL! I’m afraid to see their wants now. I think Elena wants to be adventurous, but she’s only going to end up causing a LOT of problems, LOL!

  3. Kenya is beautiful! Yay for them!

    And oh, Elena! She’s young and just exploring her options, I’m sure, but oh man! Poor Fou-Lu!

    Haha, Elena is so strange to me right now!

  4. ELENA! AND SHANG! Sheesh Mao, you let Shang run all over the place don’t you! ;)

    So this is who she ended up being? A Spouse? I expected more, or does she have another purpose? ;)

    Hahaha, you can’t restrain Shang, it just isn’t possible. ;)

  5. BTW, does Hugh have a different jawline than Shang? Its weird, I can tell he’s slightly different.

    Hugh looks more like Kate and Florence than Shang. He only has Shang’s coloring.

  7. Ugh Mao do you think it’d okay to sit Shang next to Ryu?

  8. The Yu family, once renowned for their musical ability, has now adopted a new title: the ability to spread plagues. With Shang spreading he plague of heart-farts and lurve, Zhou with the native dialect, and their uncanny ability to turn the lives of everyone else around upside down! Hugh, love that woman like your mother’s sanity depends on it!

    Hahahahahaha!! :lol:

  9. And we see Kenya again. So this is where she fits in. I don’t think Hugh will mess this up. And Florence might have settled a bit in her grave now. If he does do bad, it might be time for her to pay him a visit.
    Elena, I just have two words: BAD IDEA.

    LOL! Elena isn’t in good choice land right now. Sigh.

  10. They make such a cute couple. Elena what are you thinking. Poor thing.

    She’s out in la-la land, apparently.

  11. Love the names of the pets!
    “Thankfully, Iorek and Lyra got along famously”

    Hehehe, I was wondering if anyone would catch that.
