Carters - Round 14

Shannon couldn't believe how dense Alec was.  "What are you doing?" he demanded after hearing through the grapevine that Alec was the father of a little girl.  "You have a responsibility to them to support them and love them!"

Alec didn't know what to say.  It was true. He was letting his daughter down.

"You have nothing to say?" Shannon demanded.  "You love Brittany, don't you?"

Alec thought about it.  He did love Brittany, but what if it didn't last? Then what would he do?  "You don't understand! I want what Mom & Dad have. I want what you have.  But, what if I'm not capable of feeling that way! What if I'm jaded from dating too many people in college?"

Shannon scoffed.  "I think you're making excuses. You get what you put in. If you love her and love your baby, then you'll go be a part of their life!"

Alec hesitated.

"Whatever, I have to get to work," Shannon grumbled.  "It's your life! Do what you want..."

Shannon came home at the top of his game.  He headed inside and heard his Mom and Brittany talking about how excited they were for Alec.

Alec stopped.  "What happened?" he asked.

Michelle wiped a tear from her eye and smiled, "He packed everything up this morning and said he had to do what was right.  He went to be with Brittany and our beautiful granddaughter Rosa!"

Shannon smiled.  "Good for him," as he hugged his wife tight.

The Carters threw themselves into mastering all their skills and hobbies. 

And it wasn't long before Sonja & Alton were ready for their teen years.  They threw a big party and invited all their friends and family.

Sonja was ready to attend private school & had a plan to gain notoriety and wealth;

While Alton couldn't wait to follow in his grandfather's shoes...
