As with any beginning, the start of the Moodici dynasty came with the end of something else: after the bad blood between them and the Landgraabs boiled over, the Altos were exiled from Sunset Valley. With the gates of Sunset now closed to them, the only locale accepting of the wretched family was a small rural town at the end of the long highway.
They found the ruins of an old cloister on a small island in the main river. It was better than nothing. They would build their new home here.
Even in their last moments in Sunset, Nick had been bitterly festering for another fight with the Landgraab patriarch. Once in the new town, however, he had to erase all memory of Sunset. Instead, he decided to visit the local gym–where he focused on picking fights with his new neighbors.
Vita, on the other hand, was feeling more gregarious. She wished to become good friends with someone in the new town, invite someone over, have a party…all this in spite of her snobbish and evil nature.
But first things first. Nick and Vita headed over to the town hall. When they emerged a few moments later, they had changed. They were now the Moodicis.
Some things don’t change, though; Nick, after barely pausing to contemplate his new plans, went over to argue with a little girl outside the town hall. Vita walked right into a gathering protest. Maybe the protesters knew something she didn’t. (Nick has a long-harbored secret dream of joining the life of crime…perhaps he will act on it soon.)
While all this was happening, Holly had gone to explore the town on her own. She’d already been dragged into this move with her family, so she might as well enjoy her freedom…in her little goody little two shoes way. She got a job at the bookstore and took a guitar class.
Holly and her mother hadn’t gotten along very well in their previous life. Here they seem to be doing all right.
Let’s hope things pick up for this family. After all, the sun’s set and they still don’t have a roof.
