“Hey I came by your house the day after your wedding, but you were
napping.” Seneca tells Spencer.
“Sorry I missed you. Don’t be a stranger lil bro, come by at any time.”
Rena introduces herself to Amos, Spencer’s youngest half brother. He
giggles looking at her tummy. “How can a baby fit in there?”
Rena is not sure if it’s appropriate to get into this with him. “Well, the baby
is small right now.” She answers leaving it at that and hoping he won’t ask
any more questions.
Spencer bores Seneca with talk about himself and his job. Seneca
looks for a reason to excuse himself from Spencer’s rambling.
Rena sits on the couch, hoping that Spencer will be ready to leave
soon. She doesn’t want to be rude, but she is ready to eat.
Spencer is finally ready to leave, he takes his hungry wife to the
local diner for a bite to eat.
While Spencer and Rena are eating out, Sarah sits in her cottage
feeling a bit stir crazy. She needs to get out of the house.
She borrows Candy’s car and heads to the bookstore.
Sarah longs to get a few new recipe books now that her cooking
level has improved.
Sarah buys three new recipes and finds a bench away from the
crowd and begins to learn how to prepare cheese steak.
Gwen is at the dinner table doing her homework when Candy sits
down for dinner.
“Did you hear about the new addition to the family?”
“What new addition?” Gwen asks with an idea of what Candy is talking
“Rena’s pregnant,” Candy says. When Gwen doesn’t respond,
Candy asks, “did you eat dinner yet?”
“Are we sure that we want a youngling running around the house?” Gwen
asks ignoring Candy’s question.
“Of course we do Gwen!” Candy says ignoring Gwen’s melancholy mood.
Gwen is not very excited about the new baby, so Candy chooses to
change the subject. “Aren’t you tired of riding around on that old scooter?
Let’s go car shopping tomorrow!” Candy says. “I’m excited about the new
baby and ready to spend money!”
“I like my scooter.” Gwen says with a flat affect.
Candy changes the subject one more time. “So are there any cute boys at
school that have caught your attention?”
“Uh, can we continue this later? This assignment is driving me
nuts.” Candy, having been a grumpy teen herself, understands
Gwen’s sour mood and leaves her alone.
