600full-rodrigo-santoro10--Jason

 

Jason Alexander Swarofski is the son of Mark and Jennifer Swarofski and at one time thought he was the brother of Sasha Swarofski (more on that later). He is 27 and his birthday is April 3, 1986. He works for a software company in San Fransisco, California but might be getting transferred to Lanai, Hawaii.

He has always gotten along with Sasha. When she was little he always called her, “my Baby Girl,” and even to this day still does. While his parents treated him fairly well they did not treat Sasha well and he was always there for her. And it was not until she was 18 that he discovered that Sasha was adopted and is not blood related to him.  See for as long as he could remember he had been in love with Sasha. He knew there was nothing that could come of it because they were brother and sister but then when he heard that she was adopted and that they were disowning her because she was not doing the things that they wanted her to — he knew that there was a chance that something could come of his feelings — if only she felt the same.

Jason is very easy going and gets along with most people but there are just some people that he does not get along with and he does not allow those people in his life. He is about to cut ties with his parents because of they way they treat Sasha and the fact that if he does make a go on his feelings for Sasha they would never understand.

Now Jason is in the process of getting transferred to Lanai so that he can be closer to Sasha, even if she doesn’t return his affections.

SashaHappiness

Sasha is the youngest daughter of Jennifer and Mark Swarofski of Los Angles, California. She has one older brother, Jason. The two have always gotten along well and Jason has always been protective of his little sister. Sasha is nine-teen years old, while her brother Jason, is quite a bit older at twenty-nine years old.

Though the two are very much the same in ways, they are very opposite as well. Both are very smart, sharp witted, and can be on the cunning side at times. But Sasha is not a business person (where Jason and their father both have a head for business), and she enjoys excitement and having fun. She likes to hang out with her friends, and go out and party.

Though Jason and Sasha get along she has never gotten along overly well with her parents. Her parents don’t understand her and think that she will never amount to anything, which makes Sasha even more determined to finish school. Her mother, Jennifer, is very selfish and is only out for herself. While her father, Mark, is a business man out to make as much money as humanly possible; he also has a bad habit of never listening to his children (either one of them) when they come to him about something. He brushes them aside in trade for the all mighty dollar.

Recently from a conversation that Jason over heard their parents having he found out that he and Sasha are not actually related at all. Sasha was adopted as a baby and no one ever knew that she was adopted. Some twenty years later the truth comes out and Jason felt it was time for her to know the truth. He took her aside and talked with her about it — and it has forever changed her relationship with him…

Sasha is single, smart and beautiful. She is a student at the University of Hawaii, Lanai. She is studying criminal psychology in hopes of one day being a criminal psychologist (when she decides to settle down enough to do that)…but now she is trying to find out what she has gotten herself into…she is finding herself lost in a world that is not her own.
