Reeds (2) - Round 14

Amy loved how close her family was.  They all tended to read and play together. 

Wilbur checked the mail and sighed.  Another bill.  Worriedly, he glanced over his shoulder. He didn't want Amy to worry, but until he got another promotion, they would be pretty tight on spending cash.  It was a good thing they tended to their own garden, it saved a huge monthly grocery bill. 

Sighing, he sat down at the chess table and tried to gain a logic skill before the morning...

Amy was in the nursery checking on Wilson when she felt her water break. 

Soon after she delivered the cutests little boy, Phillip.

In the kitchen, the Reeds gathered for Wilson's birthday.  Wilbur felt so proud of his little boy. 

It was a good thing there were so many hands around to help take care of the babies. Not long after Phillip learned to crawl, he got into everything! He liked to play in the toilet, splash in the water with Bronadir, and try to eat the few toys they owned.

Wilbur shook his head and told Amy that they needed to baby-proof the house.

Bronadir woke up the next morning and stepped out into the sun. He could feel his body shifting and growing in the sunlight. 

And he knew what he needed to do immediately.  "Hello little Gaeron."

But Bronadir felt different from his spawns.  He didn't want to work in the garden...

*clears throat*  His interests were definitely varied...

"Mom?" Phillip asked.  "Are you a flower?"

Amy looked down.  "No dear," she said shaking her head.  "I was born just like you."

"Does that mean I could be a flower too?"

Amy sighed wistfully.  "Perhaps one day you might become like us.  I used to spend so much time in the garden.  I like to think a fairy saw how sad I was as a human and saved my life."

Phillip frowned.  "Do I have to work in the garden, too?"

Amy laughed. "Only if you want to! You can do whatever makes you happy in this home!  And maybe one day when you're an adult you can send a wish in our wishing well."
