"Gupta!",a familier voice called,"Huh?Oh,h-hey Tonia.",Gupta said,"Didn't dad tell you to call me Rome?",Gupta's older sister said,"I'll s-start calling you 'R-Rome' when you start calling me,",he pointed to himself,"Egypt!", he said.Tonia ruffled his short brown hair,& sat down next to him,"Signor Ottoman isn't stopping,Is he?",Tonia asked her younger brother.Cutting the playful façade,"N-no.I d- dont think so.", she looked at her younger brother with dispair in her brown eyes,"Gupta,",she said quietly,"I'm scared.", she admitted.She had never been scared.To her,fear was just another useless emotion,"I-its okay,Tonia",Gupta said but,he knew.He knew that it wouldn't be okay.Sadik Adnan was planning something,& it was scaring them both.Nothing would protect them from their fate.

"Give them back,bastard!",Tonia yelled with tears in her eyes as she put her hand to her face in an effort to stop the bleeding from the cut Sadik had given her,"Give them back or else!", Gupta was right.Sadik WAS planning something.Something that was going to ruin his sister's life,"Hahahah!Look at you!Trying to do a MAN'S job,ha!",Sadik mocked 'Leave her alone,jerk..',Gupta thought,"Give mi fratellinos back!Por favore.... pl-please...",Tonia begged.She then collapsed to the ground.A pathetic pile of tears & angst,"A-Rome!",Heracles,one of Gupta's brothers,called,"You assbut!", He said to Sadik as he carried the two away,"You....you hurt my sister!",Heracles tried his hardest to wrigle free of the Ottoman's grasp,but he held him to tight,"She'll get over it!",Sadik said coldly,"Might wanna worry about your dad!",Sadik said,"Losing two kids in one day must be tough!", he then laughed his cold hearted laugh,"D-dont you D-DARE talk a-about our father like that!", Gupta finally spoke,"Huh?Oh look,little boy's got a voice,eh?", Sadik said cruelly,"Y-yes h-I do!", Gupta said,"A-and this voice'll b-bring you d-down!",he stared up at Sadik.His hatred burning in his eyes.'Please be alright,Tonia.',Gupta thought.

One-hundred years.One-hundred years was all it took for Sadik to agree to allow Gupta,Heracles,& Vlad to see their big sister.Little did they know she was bearing a child,"A baby?!",the three said in unison,"Si,Gaul's.Aren't you excited?You are to be uncle's!", Tonia said with a smile,"Well,we ARE happy sis, but are you sure you're cut out for this?",Vlad asked,"Yeah....babies take....a lot of work,no?",Heracles said 'As long as Tonia is happy,I am happy.',Gupta thought to himself.He hasn't talked a lot since the day Sadik took him,"Well,I don't care if you think I can't handle this.This is the girl who beat up a wolf to save your sorry buts!", Tonia said while laughing.She then put her hand to her noticeable bump on her stomach,"I only wish that they could have met their father...", Tonia said quietly,almost a whisper,but to those who listened,it could be heard 'Im sure it will.One say,we will all see it's father.', Gupta thought to himself,"Gupta?", Tonia said,bringing him back from his daydream,"Hm?Oh,y-yes?",Gupta said nervously,"Are you okay?You are quieter than usual, is something wrong?", Tonia asked.Gupta smiled & shook his head,"No.Im fine,just thinking about the baby.", Gupta said as he put his hand on his sister's stomach,"Oh,a boy!Seems like a strong one,eh?", Gupta said with a chuckle,"Gupta!", Tonia said in shock & slight annoyance,"I wanted it to be a surprise!", She chuckled & hit Gupta's arm slightly,"How'd you even learn how to do that?",Vlad asked,"I d'know.Just kinda...happened.",Gupta replied.Still confused on how he figured out he was going to have a nephew,"No matter what gender.....that baby is my family......i would love it no matter what.",Heracles said in his slow & deep voice.'S much has changed',Gupta and Tonia both thought 'But',the two looked at eachother 'I still have him''I still have her'
