It's been a long day, and a lot of money has been spent. Rorick loves his niece, he really does, but she just can't stick to a budget. As a treat for her upcoming birthday, he took her on a trip to the mall. He laid out the budget beforehand, but he just couldn't say no to that excited face. When he saw the damage at the end of the day though? It almost stopped his heart. He could afford it, but just barely. He was determined to get his money's worth though, and he knew a way to do that.
And now I get to introduce you to another new character! Today you just so happen to be meeting Rorick's neice Lily! And before you say anything, she's not Natalie and Theo's daugter, but Rorick's older sister Emily's and her mate's. That's right! Rorick has another sibling who's been kept under wraps. One day I might have the money together so you all can meet the bunch.
(Oh, and for those who may be concerned, this isn't canon. In reality, Rorick is a doting uncle.)
