Wll, it sounds like the kids are gowingup. And I think that Leslie's idea for the Nany/babysitter sounds good.
Harry2 chapter 5 . 1/21/2012
Well, I hope that Grandma can deal with the angry/suspended Ephram. It sounds like there is a lot of anger and other things in him that need to be worked out. And as for Errico, I hope that its not as bad as the reports are.

Wow-this was a different one! I do like the followup of sorts re Hachiro and Lani-but the news about Errico is very sad. I'm glad Michiko stood up to her stepson and got involved. Thanks for the New Years surprise-I look forward to this "sinister-sounding" trip to the islands!

Oh, poor Lani and the acid reflux...

Teach him how to cook and you give Eph a brilliant future. He will be at the hotel or pond restaurant someday!

Wow, they love it...Miyoshi is awesome!

NO! Errico... oh crap... I have a bad feeling about this... A bad feeling that Michiko and Cat will be coming back to the island soon, to live...

Great chapter. Great story. Can't wait for more!

Oh, and I forgot, Ingrid was a good solution to Jeremy's woes with Adam. Not that they are really woes, but you know what I mean.

Oh ho! Briana, Noella, and Ephraim could be 8th graders together in the same class. Very cool...

That's a good idea. He should hire local teachers. Although I can understand why someone might want to teach for a year on FI; it would be a vacation compared to winters in New York or upstate Michigan...

Hey! Maybe Hachiro and Lani could become teachers on FI. I like that idea, and it will give Eph a chance to make a new start in 8th grade...

Oh! Brilliant idea expounded... Tommy could move back to the island with his business and bring Hachiro with him! Love it, love it, LOVE IT!

Oh, no, I hope Errico didn't curse himself. Or one of Roarke's and Leslie's supernatural enemies didn't try to kill him, because he's the husband of Leslie's best friend...

I think it's great that the trips love Dori's fruit salad! Awesome cuteness...

GET DORI BACK HERE NOW! LOL

Yay! Dori will come here! Hoo-ray!

Wow, there's Christian! Haven't seen him ALL STORY LONG... let alone Roarke...

But excellent chapter. ON to the finish!

Yay! Miyoshi will fix him, she fixed Saburo! Awesome!

Looks like she really WILL fix him! Great!

Wow, that's a LOT of people at the Ichino home! Impressive...

Oh, the fabulous cherry seltzer... you should make some here...lol

Hmm, hope Jonathan is okay...

Wow, Jeremy's been busy. Good for him! He's settling down quite nicely.

Good serious convo to clear Michiko's stress. Not that it will, I think.

Another good chapter. I hope she finds a computer and writes to Errico soon!

Yay! Lani and Hachiro patched things up!

CRAP! Ephraim's been an ID-EE-UT!

I see why Ephraim has some issues. He is much worse than Hachiro, when he was in high school. Yet, I can't see Hachiro's parents being as tough with him as he needed. This will be quite interesting to see, I don't think Warren will be going to let him come over at all. And even if he did, Lani is right. Warren will treat him like dung.

I'm very sorry Eph had to be on the receiving end of it. But he had to see that Warren is a major jerkwad. And the way Hachiro told Warren off was priceless. I love that he used his own parent's words back ... LOL

Maybe Eph will feel better about Hachiro, since Hachiro is being very supportive of Eph in this, and other, situations...

Cool, Leslie and Camille and Michiko chatting, and the kids hanging out...love it...

That's right, Michiko lives with rose-colored glasses on all of the time...

Maybe Roarke has some good ideas. Or...maybe they could leave Eph here on the island with Miyoshi. Must be something that they could do to help Eph... He's been the victim of entitlement, just like Hachiro.

ACK! A tumor in Errico! Not good, not good, NOT GOOD!

Yes, get all the families to that cookout! Maybe something good will happen to Ephraim there...

Excellent chapter! On to #5!

Oh, there he is! About time...

Geez Louise! This is nutso... Okay, Leslie gets to meet Lani. Hmm... Hey wait, Tyler and Oliver might have fun with the triplets...hehehe.

Oh, here's Lani. This is going to be stressful...

Well, this went well. I think Lani and Hachiro will be able to save their relationship :)

Hoo boy! That's not good, we need to get Errico to see a doctor. Yes, he might need a vacation. But we need to be sure, first. He is somewhat older than Michiko, at least 15 or maybe 20 years, I forget which, isn't he? Hmm...

Hmm, nice, the trips are happy and behaving...

That's a good idea, let the people know about Errico's exhaustion. Maybe he should come to FI for a week and have a fantasy? At least he should go fishing with Brian. And then send him off to Tornado Island. And send him up to Lilla Jordsö and have him visit the cafe that Leslie loved and Christian frequented and to go visit that hotel that Gerhard's in-laws run.

Great chapter, can't wait for the next one!

This is a great discussion, introducing Caleb. Very good, Hachiro really needs this. Excellent work.

Fun scenes between Lani's kids, LOL.

Good idea, have all of the kids come over and play baseball.

I'm enjoying Aaron getting his first cooking lesson. This will be good for all of the kids.

Oh, I bet I was confusing Myeko starting a relationship with Lani for Leslie. D'oh!

Glad Emiko's gonna kick Liam's butt in baseball...LOL Wahoo!

Good chapter. I hope they find Hachiro soon. Great scenes! On to the next chapter!

Yay! A new story!

Yay! A Michiko appearance!

Great conversation between Michiko and little Catalina. She's cute.

Cool, here comes Hachiro and Lani and the kids! Wow, this'll be fun!

I can't believe that Paolono is FINALLY going to get married. It's been so so long. Long enough...I can't recall who Lindalia is.

I'm really glad Hachiro brought the family over. It's important for them to know their family. Even if their aunt is queen of one of the richest island nations on Earth...LOL

That's weird, I thought Leslie and Lani had met. (scratches head)

Darn, Hachiro is really messed up. This is hard on everyone.

Great dialogue between Michiko, Miyoshi, and Lani. Wonderful scene.

On to the next chapter!
