I’ve had two years to think about this, pretty sure it isn’t a rash decision.
Then good. Excellent. Wonderful. Marvelous! So whenever we finally get around to taking that trip of yours, I get to go with my best friend! Perfect. It wouldn’t have been the same without her.
I am very glad you’re happy, Sugar.
Do you even need to check? It’s like you don’t know me at all.
-pokes his cheek, smiling a little- Don’t you pretend to be disappointed in me, mister. It’s a necessary thing considering my constantly hinting at you two getting back together. It’s just the right thing to do to make sure you aren’t making some sort of rash decision because she’s here and I’m crazy.
(curtsies slightly) Thank you, thank you. (giggles ans nods) Yes. It is! I’m still a bit shocked, to be honest, because this week… Good grief, Molly, I really thought it’d the most awkward seven day period of my life.
Oh, I am so glad that you two worked things out! You two were such absolute knuckleheads about the whole thing.
Oh, I am so happy for you two I could… Combust. Except I can’t. My children would be in a tight spot if I simply exploded.
As you can see, I am a very articulate individual. Yes, stuff and things. Um, uh, relationship stuff and things. That’s what they call it nowadays, right? God, who gave me the permission me to become an adult.
Kyle and I managed to fix things. So, you know, you no longer have to worry about that. It’s all good now.
You’ve always been the most articulate. Sometimes your word choice simply takes my breath away. -widens her eyes- Relationship stuff?
What?! What?! Oh Savannah! That’s fantastic news!
I might take you up on that, you’d better prepare a lawyer just in case. No, I’m devastated, I wanted to be sad and lonely forever.
You are so rude to me, do you know that? -pokes him in the chest- Don’t be rude. I’m just checking.
You know, if my relationship is the most exciting thing that’s happened to you in a while, maybe you need to re-evaluate your life. But thanks.
It’s not the most exciting thing, but you two are some of my closest friends, and I want you to be happy and I know you make each other happy. I just like seeing you happy, sue me. Actually don’t, you have far too much money as it is. And you’re welcome. I’m glad you two fixed that. Are you happy?
Mollyyyyyy. We need to discuss stuff. And things.
Stuff and things? Hmm, that sounds like a very important conversation.
Hey, wha-? [lets out a little oof as she runs into him]
I’m guessing she told you, then?
Yes, yes she did! Oh, I am so happy for you too!
Oh, that sounds lovely! I mean, I understand how having her there could be a bit stressful. Whenever dad’s visiting, he will not stop worrying and fussing over me, and I’m 31 years old. It’s literally me and my plants, so I don’t understand why he must be so protective of me. Parents are funny.
I don’t know, I was always whining about the constant sunburns, but now I sometimes find myself missing it all. Maybe it’s just the nostalgia. Yes, adventure!
It is, we’re all very lucky and very happy. -giggles, poking her in the arm lightly- Hey, I’m a parent now, missy. Don’t make sweeping generalizations like that unless you make a disclaimer that I’m an exception.
Ooh, yes you and your snow white skin always getting burned. -giggles- Perhaps, nostalgia. -walks, coming up to the townhouse cause magic- Look at that, it’s still here. Looks like it’s got a makeover though. OH! Look at the mailbox! Whoever lives here painted it with sunflowers! How absolutely darling!
You! Come here, you! -runs over to Kyle and gives him a big hug-
There really is. No one’s done research on that, per se, but it’s pretty obvious. Well, the lack of stress, I think, comes from the acceptance of mistakes. It’s not that the second child is different. You’re different. No, we left her with her grandparents. Which is…horrifying. Or, right. Why isn’t he here, anyway?
-laughs- Oh, trust me, Emily is vastly different from the boys. She likes to sleep, a lot and she’ll do it anywhere she pleases, she’s a very mellow baby. -wrinkles her nose- Oof, that is scary, I couldn’t do that. Not to mention I’d miss them too much for a week, and Emily is still just a bit too little to leave with someone for more than a day, I think. Or I’m just too afraid to do it, really. -frowns a little- Work, unfortunately. One of his clients needed him last minute, he was disappointed because he was looking so forward to this, but sometimes life happens. We’ll just have to make plans to visit friends soon.
Yes, I don’t think your mother looks all that old. How are they, by the way, your family? Again, you’re welcome.
Let’s. I actually kind of missed the weather here. I walked by earlier and stared at it for a bit. Ooh, it’s nice day for ice cream, isn’t it?
She really doesn’t, although she swears she does. And oh, they’re well! Popo is still going strong, she’s determined to see Emily at least walk before she goes anywhere, she’s said it herself and I quite believe her. Baba’s good, walking less, but still happy, and Mama is as energetic as ever, honestly. Maybe more so, she actually just went back home last week. Honestly, I’m kind of glad she’s gone, I love her but she’s a little suffocating.
Oh, I don’t know, I’ve grown quite fond of my cool summers. And I hadn’t missed the pollen in the slightest. But it does make it the perfect day for ice cream. Let’s head out, shall we? Come on boys, auntie Savannah and I are taking you on an adventure!
[sighs and rolls his eyes] Look, I’m fine. I’ve seen her already, and we talked, and it’s fine, we’re fine, let’s just move on with our lives already.
Mhmmm, you definitely sound like you’re fine, talking about her like that.
