It was finally time for Rihanna and Esmerelda’s birthday and so Tyler and Jane carried the girls to their cakes whilst Jennifer and the repairman watched on with anticipation.
Esmerelda was the first to grow up, with her mother’s hair colour exactly.
And then Rihanna who had more of her father’s hair colouring.
After the party Jennifer headed off to Mortimer’s house, since the last update Mortimer and Jennifer had become more than just friends. Confused, Jennifer found Mortimer living with 3 children.
Confused, hungry and tired Jennifer headed back home, across the array of lavish townhouses, to her own house near the centre of town.
Rihanna felt slightly nervous as she and her new friend were the only 2 people left on the bus. “Where’s your house?” Rihanna asked “By the beach,” Derek replied not removing his gaze from the row of rich beach houses. This was normal for him, his family, as Rihanna was to find out, was incredibly rich.
Jennifer embraced Mortimer and pulled him into a kiss goodbye from her newly decorated house (house plans etc coming soon for those interested) Jennifer had somewhere else to be.
Jennifer had agreed to meet Damien Edge, the repairman who behind Mortimer’s back she had grown rather fond of. Deciding that central park would be probably be too public for such a meeting, she arranged the only park in town that could be accessed by only a small footpath.
After meeting with her second lover she remembered that it was time for Susanna’s birthday and so rushed home, bringing Damien with her to watch the festivities, claiming he was a friend and Mortimer couldn’t come because he was working.
As Susanna blew out the candles on the cake the rest of the family celebrated and after helped themselves to cake, all except Jane and Jennifer.
“I’m not stupid Jennifer!” Jane pressed, leaning back to examine her daughter. “I never claimed you were, besides, I don’t understand what your point is,” Jennifer retaliated.
“You stupid girl!” Jane continued to shout, slapping her daughter on the cheek, “I know… I know you’re seeing Damien behind Mortimer’s back!”
Jennifer glared at her mother, how dare she?! She knows nothing about my life!
“It’s not like I want children or anything!” Jennifer yelled, her face now a mixture of despair and frustration.
“Jennifer, that’s not the point, I hope you know how disappointed I am!” Jane shouted. Jennifer had had enough; “Oh! Just because you’re now Vice President nothing bad is meant to happen in this family right?!” Jane didn’t respond and instead took some cake and then retired to bed.
The following day there was an optimism in Jennifer’s spirit that she hadn’t felt for a long time, Jane had gone to work along with Tyler and Susanna and so it was just Jennifer who was at home to witness the twin’s birthday.
Esmerelda grew up first, she looks a lot like Susanna and has the same hair colour.
And then Rihanna’s turn, who looks more like Tyler with his hair colour. Heir poll soon
The following morning Jennifer decided to speak to Mortimer and so invited him round, it was still early and the sun had not fully risen. She invited him inside.
“Mortimer, I’m sorry…” Jennifer began. She explained about Damien and then at the end, silently murmured the words ‘it’s over’
“Please Mortimer, try not to get too angry, I’m sorry but I can’t let it carry on like this,” Jennifer reassured, trying to calm Mortimer down who was more angry at Jennifer’s betrayal than upset at her breaking up with him.
“Mortimer!!” Jennifer cried as her ex lunged forward, she took a step back, “Please calm down!” Mortimer started to shout, “Calm down?! I’ve been betrayed, I can’t calm down, sorry Jennifer, I’ll see myself out!” And with that he turned and left the house, Jennifer stood astonished at what had just happened, she was so humiliated and watched her old lover leave without turning to look at her once.
Mortimer left feeling hurt, Jennifer, who he had once loved, had completely broken his heart and he wasn’t about to forget it. It was dark outside and so as Mortimer went home, Jennifer felt drowsy and went to bed, where in her dreams everything was perfect.
The following day Jennifer went to speak to the only boy she had ever befriended and didn’t become romantically involved with, Tam Alvi. Well, she had tried to kiss him, but it all ended in tears… “Oh hi Jennifer!” Tam’s sister answered, “Tam isn’t in rightnow, he’s gone to the beach!” Great Jennifer thought to herself
Jennifer soon found Tam, where they talked and flirted for hours into the night.
It was after school and Esmerelda had been invited to go to Ellis Sumner’s house. Coincidentally, Ellis Sumner lived with Mortimer Goth.
But coincidentally fate is always intertwined. As an author Jennifer had been asked by Ellis Sumner to write a science fiction novel for him and have it delivered to him as soon as possible. (It was part of an opportunity). “Hey, your Aunt’s here!” Ellis said enthusiastically, excited a the prospect of a novel made just for him Esmerelda clenched her fists and looked away, expecting some form of embarrassment to occur in the next 10 minutes of her life.
But, Jennifer being Jennifer, went straight over to see Mortimer to complain about life and random other things. Seriously embarrassing Esmerelda.
She wasn’t interested in Mortimer however, she rather preferred becoming acquainted with Tam, one of her neighbours.
The following night included frequent bathroom visits for Jennifer, she felt nauseous, but she tossed the thought to the back of her mind. Probably mum’s cooking She kept trying to reassure herself.
Standing up she felt dizzy and exhausted, not able to climb the stairs to her bed, she took a nap on the sofa.
The following morning Jennifer worked on her novel, until she realised she was pregnant.
Tyler’s children were progressing in school, Esmerelda brought home Leila Hart, who, coincidentally is also her aunt as well as friend. Want to know how that works? Well, Susanna’s father, Connor Frio had all of his children out of marriage, Susanna was the child of Connor and one of his lady-friends but then Bebe Hart (out of marriage) got pregnant with Connor’s children, 2 twin girls, Leila and Dawn who are therefore Susanna’s half-sisters making them the girl’s aunts.
Back inside the house Jennifer knew she had to tell her mother about her condition. “Mum…” Jennifer began, trying to consider how to word this lightly “I’m expecting” Jane felt no excitement for her daughter who also happened to be her sworn nemesis,“Jennifer, your life is your life, you’ve made that perfectly clear before,” And with that Jane turned away only to be stopped by her daughter.
“Mum, I’m sorry, sorry about Mortimer and then Damien and now this, but Tam and I really can be responsible parents!” Jennifer said hanging her head Her mother did not accept her apology.
Jennifer immediately ran to visit Tam who had only just come home with his family. “Tam! Sorry about calling so late and at a completely inappropriate time,” It was true, Tam’s mother had passed away that morning, word had already spread about the town. Tam wasn’t bothered about Jennifer’s visit and told her to continue talking.
It was nearing early morning and Tam and his family were exhausted, Jennifer drew her voice to a whisper and Rebekah, Tam’s sister leaned in to hear what was about to be said, “I’m pregnant!”
Rebekah turned away as Tam gave his congratulations to Jennifer, he truly was happy for his girlfriend.
VJ broke down into tears, knowing his wife would have been very proud to have a grandchild on the way.
Tam felt Jennifer’s stomach to be close to his child, and then Jennifer returned home.
