SECOND ATTEMPT. > Under Construction!
(43) DW: Angelina "Angie" Gracie
(46) DH: Asher Miguel
Angelina Gracie Pérez was a sweet and well mannered young girl. She went to a Catholic school along with her 4 older sisters; Mariah (3 years older), Isobel (4 years older), Claudia and Emilia (8 years older), and her younger brother Nico (6 years younger). Asher was from quite a poor background. His father left his mother and his younger brother Liam (3 years younger) when he was only 5, so his mum Deanna had to work 3 jobs just to make ends meet. However, he grew up valuing everything he had.
Angie and Asher met in the playground when they were 8 and 9... she was trying to get across the monkey bars and he was tall enough to push her up. Since that first meeting, they saw eachother every weekend and soon became best friends. But Angelina's father wouldn't let her be best friends with a boy, especially one that was a year older. But nothing would stop that determined little woman.
When they were 15 and 16, the two began dating - in secret - whilst Angie pretended to be going to pottery class and having Mariah and Izzy cover for her! (Claudia and Em had their own kids by then!)
Although neither believed in sex before marriage, one thing led to another and they ended up doing the deed on the night after Angie's 16th birthday, whilst both her parents were away - one for a buisness conference and the other was helping Isobel move to College - ... but when the next month came, and then the next and the next.. and still no period? Angie went to her two eldest sisters and they all went to the doctors. Angelina was 13 weeks pregnant.
That night she cried and cried, while her mother listened in the next room, her heart breaking.
The next day, she told Asher and his mother. Though he was shocked and scared, Deanna said she'd support the two of them, no matter what decision they made. He said he'd never be like his dad, and that he'd stand by her no matter what.
Angelina tried hiding the pregnancy for about a month, hoping that maybe, just maybe, if she pretended it wasn't there, it would come true. She finally picked up the courage to tell her mother -with Asher, Deanna and all her siblings in tow- who when told, said she already knew. Her mother said maybe it would be best if she told their father herself, and when she did, he walked right out of the house. Coming back after 6 hours of worrying and fretting. He said that he was disappointed... but that she was his daughter, first and foremost and that he'd be there for her. He suggested that the couple get married when she turned 18, but they said they wanted to wait another couple of years before making that kind of commitment.
On February 13th 1984, Asher and Angelina welcomed Alena Christiana Winters in to the world!

Though Len grew up alone for 8 years as an only child, and then in the space of 5 years, having 3 other siblings, she never once felt alone! She had quite a few cousins and friends sorrounding her at all times, that it was quite hard to find some peace and quiet!!!
When she met Marco on her Univeristy criminology course, at the tender age of 18, and he was the quiet only child, they instantly connected. He was gorgeus! Olive skin, hazel eyes and oh, those biceps!
And she didn't look so bad herself! So, being the confident and charming young girl that she was -just like her mother- she asked him out to dinner. He agreed and after 4 months of casual dating, they made it official.
At the age of 20, Alena Christiana became Mrs Marco Moreno. Though Angie thought that maybe Alena was rushing into things... she knew that deep down, Leni was ready to commit to Marc and that he truly loved her. They decided to wait to have children, atleast until they both had stable jobs and a big enough house.
So Marco got a job in the local Police station as a detective and Len took a job as and English teacher in one of Nico's kid's schools and they waited 3 years to even start trying.
