First things first, let us give our new family member a warm welcome. Say hello to Rin, a former member of the soul society and a new member of the Mafia. Rin, too, has the ability to change into a wolf but she doesn't exactly fall under the category of a werewolf. (Or vampire) Upon arriving, she bumped heads with Chaos over floor arrangements when she claimed the 8th floor. Seriously, its an off day when someone doesn't get into a fight with Chaos.
I am sad to report that we have lost our beloved member, Gio, who has chosen to leave the Mafia for personal reasons. We miss him dearly and hope that his temporary leave is not permanent.
Shortly after, Nic decided to change Aaron and after two agonizing days, Aaron joined our familia as a newborn vampire. Nic also discovered that her beau's power includes the ability to make people fall in love. (Talk about playing cupid!) The newlyweds are on their honeymoon in Fiji. So we wish them the best of a time.
As for as unfortunate events go:
1) After a nasty fight between Aly and Josh, Josh mysteriously disappeared, only to be found by Queenie and Chaos before he was able to burn himself alive, yes, we said burn.
2) Just as Maria told us about her suspicions of Demetri being the one who changed her, the Volturi decided to pay us a little visit in front of our Canadia hideout. Demetri attempted to capture Maria as her mate only to be stopped by Rosa who was burned by Jane who Aly tried to burn but didn't work and was soon burned my Jane as well. (What a mouthful!) With a little convincing from the Mafia, the Volturi retreated. Mafia: 1 Volturi: 0
In more obvious news, we are desperately in need of a new Mafia thread (that the Mods refuse to give us for reasons unknown) So far, we've managed to terminate the Canadia thread and have moved on to Florida to soak up the sun. Kowabunga, Familia!
