Nestled in the upper hills of Riverview lies the Glassbury home, modest in comparison to the massive mansions surrounding it, but quite nice compared to it's meek and humble beginings. Within it lives the Glassbury family: Desiree, Gabriel, Cedric, Nicole, and Calvin.
"Fashionista, huh?" Desiree left work slightly worried about her new promotion. Her hand was cramping from cutting hair and her brain was fried from trying to satisfy the pickiest of customers. If they wanted to choose everything themselves, then why were they paying her?
She sets down to relax with husband Gabriel and daughter Nicole in front of the television when Gabriel asks how her day was.
"I got a promotion, and I made a lot of money. It seems like the clients are happier when I just pick random crap."
"Well I'm glad to hear that because I went a little over budget today on the dining room," Gabe said, pulling her closer and rubbing her shoulders, hoping she wouldn't be upset.
"Come take a look?"
And how could Desiree be upset? It was gorgeous. The big empty space for sure looked more inviting and calming than she could have imagined. Not to mention they were no longer using outdoor furniture inside. Besides, with her new promotion, she would easily earn the money back the next day.

"Maybe we can leave it up to chance," Gabriel suggested. And they did......
