"Twins?" she asked incredilously! "I thought I was just having ONE baby!" Nicole would have a sister!
Charles was so glad that his brother and his wife were able to make it to his party. When he was a younger man, sometimes his thoughts had strayed to what-if's about Kate - but he knew that old adage about the grass being greener on the other side would probably hold true. Now he was just happy that Ralph had found such an amazing woman to grow old with.
Cheryl smiled. "Sometimes a baby's hair will change when they're little. When I was little, I had blonde hair too. It didn't turn dark until I was a child!"
Heather stroked Nicole's hair. "I always wanted blonde hair," she said wistfully.
Heather thought it over...
Mostly she just wished Caleb noticed that she exited... as something other than a friend...
Caleb smiled. "Sure! Think you'll beat me this time?"
"You better believe it!"
Caleb frowned. "Maybe you should go inside & warm up. I"ll see you tomorrow at school."
"No!" Heather exclaimed. "I mean, I'm fine! Stay!"
Caleb laughed. "You're crazy Heather. See you tomorrow," he called over his shoulder.
"No wait!" she called over to him. "Come inside with me... I'll... help you warm up!"
He'd led a good life! Now he had time to sit back, raise his kids & get a hobby or two!
