Well, first we should define the parameters of "love"

Emmett wrinkled his nose. Yes, of course he knew that technically Sonny was not a “real” baby, but he loved her just the same wanted to pass the class, so he was doing everything he could to take it seriously and do his best as a fake parent. Plus he was certain Ruben was doing as mediocre as possible at every (rare) occasion he was given, so that mean that Emmett had to be the Best Dad Ever so that poor little Sonny would still feel loved and protected.

But he let it slide and didn’t correct Rose when he referred to his daughter as a thing, because she was immediately launching into a tyrade. Sometimes (most often), Rose was terrifying, but in this case, Emmett was fortunate enough to agree with her, at least mostly. He raised his index finger before interjecting, “I like Kaye. But yes, the rest are pretty much terrible.” Admittedly, he didn’t really know Myffi and had yet to have an actual conversation with her, but Rose had told him about her completely inappropriate inquiry about Holland, so she was already being evaluated negatively.

He did his best to keep his fists from curling up in remembered rage at Rose’s mentions of Ruben and his behavior. Emmett didn’t really think what Ruben and Marissa had done was right to begin with, because poor Danny was sure to get Even More Hurt and everything was terrible, but Ruben was being a total pineapplewad about it. He was so disgusting.

“Well, you know I’m not much for planning,” Emmett commented somewhat sheepishly. “But I make a great henchman, so if you have any idea on what to do to get rid of the rest of them, I’m all ears.” He smiled his most devious smile. Emmett wasn’t particularly devious, nor was he much for mayhem or revenge, but he was fairly confident he could learn something here. After all, he was sitting with the master.

  • ...How much you wanna bet? - Rose, Mon Aug 21 16:23
    Rose groaned. “Emmett, that thing isn’t real,” she said as he sat down and made excuses for ‘them’. She’d noticed that he brought his doll along more than other people did, but she had assumed it was ... more

      • You're lucky to have gotten to 'like' - Rose, Thu Aug 24 18:43
        “Kaye doesn’t count,” Rose said automatically, before wondering why she’d bothered. Kaye was also in Aquila and changed her hairstyle more than Holland did, but Rose had nothing against her. Plus,... more
        • It's a slippery slope after that. - Emmett, Fri Aug 25 22:14
          Emmett shrugged. “I tried,” he offered weakly. Criminal mastermind was not his forte by any means, but hey, that was what Rose was for. “Also, stop talking about my child like that,” he added. “She’s ... more
          • Should I put my skis on then? - Rose, Sat Aug 26 11:36
            Oh Merlin, Emmett’s fake baby was sensitive ? Rose sighed internally. They really needed to get him a puffskein or a kneazle or something, anything that was more healthy to become emotionally... more
            • We could go skiing, sure. - Emmett, Sat Aug 26 12:00
              Emmett listened in horror. He punched a rock ? What the Hell was wrong with that guy? And he would be all about his hair. Vain bastard. He did kinda wish Rose didn’t talk like that about Camilla,... more
