Anderson 3 – Round 21: ‘Turn Me Loose, Pt. 6′

Filed under: Anderson — Tags: , , , , , , — Mao @ 3:42 pm

Nathaniel and Sara are enjoying their quiet years, but still find themselves concerned for their children… all of which have seemed to gone down questionable paths.

Cole Anderson had thought wrong when he assumed he and Maggie O`Hanlon couldn’t get caught sneaking out past curfew. Maggie managed to escape, but Cole was caught red handed. They weren’t even doing anything wrong! Curfews were stupid.

Even worse, the cop didn’t just drop him off. She went in and ratted him out. Sara came flying out in her pajamas, not bothering to care who saw, and read him the riot act. Cole was both incredibly abashed and embarassed. He just wanted to slink off to his room and forget the world. This would be the last time he snuck out… both because he was grounded until college and because it just wasn’t worth the trouble!

Of course, it didn’t end there. No way. Cole awoke only to be drug out into the livingroom and forced to face both his mother and his Aunt Julie.

“You told Aunt Julie?!” He cried out, completely mortified now. Maggie was going to be grounded for life.

“Maggie was with you,” Sara countered. “She needed to know.”

Julie sighed, moving to leave, “and I’m going to deal with her right now.”

“Oh man…” Cole sunk back against the couch, wanting to get away from his mother’s piercing gaze.

To make matters even worse, Shelly came over a few days later to ask why Cole hadn’t been sticking to his part of the deal. She hadn’t seen him outside of school at all and they were supposed to be trying to separate Isolde and Timothy!

“I’m grounded, Shelly,” Cole tried to explain. “My mom caught Maggie and I sneaking out.”

At this, Shelly rolled her eyes, “It isn’t my fault you were stupid. Who sneaks out, anyway? And you’re supposed to be getting Timothy away from Isolde… not hanging out with his little sister.” She was remembering Maggie O`Hanlon now, she’d grown up pretty, a threat to Shelly.

“She’s my cousin,” Cole reasoned, reading her expression easily. “Don’t be gross.”

“Oh, right… because your family isn’t into the whole cousin thing.” Her brown brows rose accusingly. “Or maybe you haven’t seen Sade lately?”

Low blow. With that, Shelly turned on her heel and left.

Despite her scathing comment, Shelly came by again, only this time at night. She was taking a walk with her mother while Cole happened to be taking out the trash. They stopped and spoke for a moment and Cole was sure to apologize and assure her that he would do his best to fulfill his part of the deal. For some reason, Cole was finding himself somewhat drawn to Shelly. She was oftentimes cold and downright mean, but she had her moments. Isolde was still a mystery to him, but he was beginning to figure Shelly out.

This may have been why, when Timothy came over to bring something to his aunt Sara, Cole was not so quick to dismiss the relationship between the two. Sure, he questioned Isolde’s weird hobbies, but Timothy was unphazed. The boy just seemed… so peaceful. It was ridiculous.

“Everyone has a hobby, Cole,” Timothy said easily, then gave his cousin a look. “I’d like it if your hobbies didn’t get Maggie in any more trouble though.”

Cole sighed, “It wasn’t my fault! She wanted to sneak out.”

“I know, she tried to con me into it, too. I said no. You should, too, next time. She’s just trying to act out and get noticed. sShe gets bored and then she has to do something. It’s just Maggie’s way. Steer clear or you’ll get burned.”

That he had already found out the hard way.

Note from Mao: Cole didn’t have a good round, LOL! Poor guy. Both he and Maggie really did have wants to sneak out. I assumed it would end badly, heh, and it did. Poor Cole. And yes, Shelly is quite mean, isn’t she? LOL

ETA – I have no idea why comments were disabled. It’s been fixed. Sorry!

  3. I love Cole. He reminds me of somebody I know. Can’t remember who, but I remember the memory fondly, so must be somebody I like. Geez, Shelly would be perfect for “Mean Girls.” Though, the thing with Sade has been hashed and rehashed enough times that not everyone considers it weird anymore. In attitude, those two somewhat remind me of Tsung and Lilith as teens. I guess I think of Cole as her possible saving grace.

    Cole is an oddball, I haven’t completely figured him out yet. Shelly is definitely a ‘Mean Girl’! She’s very ambitious, though, not vapid and shallow like most.
