  3. 3. After our wedding night, Andrew and I were too exultant to sleep. We ended up tending the garden together. Despite being distracted by my beloved’s closeness I earned a bronze gardening badge.
  4. 4. “Cas? You alright?” Andrew asked as I had to work very hard not to throw up on his shoes. “I’m fine.” I told him, could I be pregnant, was that what that strange lullaby was about. I would have to pursue this futher.
  5. 5. My stomach settled down quickly, thankfully. After a quick shower, my beloved and I settled down to play chess. We both needed to increase our logic skill. I must admit, Andrew is a little better than me. He says he’s been playing games since he was Jacob’s age.
  6. 6. Jacob returned home from school, his grades were improving. Andrew said Jacob had been a little off since his mother had died. I hope this is a good sign for our relationship.
  7. 7. All of sudden my stomach expanded, I was pregnant. It had to had something to do with the lullaby I had heard. I wish I could contact my mother about the incident. I was filled with joy, I was going to have a baby. I had to tell Andrew right away.

  17. 17. Andrew made us cereal the next morning. He is great at guessing what I need. It was good that he was in a good mood. I had neglected to tell him one thing. “Andrew, There’s a naming theme in my family.” “Like European names? I can handle that.” “No, well, no so specific. I want to name our baby after a creature of legend.” “Oh, I guess that’ll be okay. My aunt won’t like it.” “I know. But it’s important to my mission.” “She’ll have to accept then.”
  18. 18. Andrew had to go to work after that. I spent the day tending the garden. The tomato plants were almost ripe. I couldn’t wait to taste my home grown produce.
  19. 19. That night I went into labor. It hurt a lot but was over very quickly.
  20. 20. Even though I had to go through it twice. I gave birth to twins, which is not surprising since I’m quadruplet myself. I named them Chupacabra and Lechuza. Though it is quiet impossible to tell them apart at this age.

I’ll stay and help out with the little until I can move out.”
  25. 25. Barely a day passed and my stomach swelled with new life. We were going to be parents again! My beloved would be so pleased.

  33. 33. They loved each other very much. Talking in nonsense phrases that obviously meant something to each other. I could barely tear them apart to make them go to bed.
  34. 34. This night I was awakened again. By horrible pain, I was labor again.
  35. 35. I gave birth to two more boys, Rookin and Coyote. I shouldn’t have been surprised, but I was. Our house was too small before, now it would be absolutely cramped.
  36. 36. Once the newborns were settled in cribs in Jacob’s room Andrew and I went back to bed. It took a long time for me to fall back asleep. Mulling over the problem of space in my head.
  37. 37. The mess downstairs made the decision for me. We would move, rather try to fix this house. There was a plot of land near Andrew’s Aunt’s.
  38. 38. The instant the newsboy came I snatched up the paper and confirmed the listing was available. We began packing everything we owned.
  39. 39. Within two hours, we were there. Our new house. This time we wouldn’t have to live in squalor.
  40. 40. That’s it for this chapter, sorry it’s taking so long to get my chapters out. I’m hoping I’ll be making more time for them in the near future so I can pass the torch. I named Castoria’s kids after local legends, thinking it would be fun to learn more about my area. Some of the mythic creatures are rather famous like the Chupacabra and others less so, like I had never heard of Lechuza. But that’s what Google is for right? Chupacabra is the goat sucking demon widely known to killed cattle and drain their blood. Tasty. There are a lot of Chupacabra ‘spottings’ but most tend to a mange infested dog or raccoon. Lechuza is a home grown Texas legend of witches that turn into owls. Fortunately they are not considered dangerous and seemed to like scary people on long widing road trips. Rookin is a legendary giant bull shark roaming the swamps of my dear neighbor Louisiana. I’m not sure how valid this legend is. But Discovery Channel gave it a special during a Shark Week. Coyote is one my personal favorite Indian legends. He’s part of a lot stories and cultures. And is always up to some mischief or other. Patricia Briggs, a favorite author of mine, brings him to life in the Mercy Thompson series.
