Carpenters - Round 20

Edwin had finally talked Rachel into heading out to Lover's Lookout.  He couldn't wait! Tonight he was going to score!

"Hey guys!" Edwin called as he snuck past the treeline that hid their hangout spot.  Teens had brought over a few old bits and pieces of furniture to make it more comfortable.

No parents, no rules - just a lot of teens having some fun!

Cigarettes? Who left cigarettes here? That stuff was for posers!  (Thanks Edwin for being the posture child for Sim Teens Against Smoking!)

Finally, after waiting for what seemed like forever, he saw Rachel head over.  Waving her over to the bench, he asked how she was doing.

Then scooted a little closer...

Finally going in for the kill!

Rachel pushed Edwin off of her.  "What are you doing?!" she asked, exasperated.  "I'm with Walker!"

Edwin leaned forward to kiss her neck.  "That's okay. We can still fool around!"

Rachel pushed Edwin back again and jumped up.  "Edwin! I thought we were friends!"

"Oh come on, Rachel, grow up! We're not friends! You just wanted to take a walk on the wild side. It's okay, I won't tell anyone."

Rachel just glared.

Edwin shrugged, "Suit yourself.  Catch you later!"

Rachel watched Edwin walk over to another girl and start flirting.  If she didn't like him, then why did she feel so disappointed?

Chloe swooned over the fact that Edwin had invited her home. EDWIN! The hottest boy in class!

Not to mention the cockiest.

"So, you wanna fool around?" he asked.

"Oh Edwin!"

Things were looking pretty awesome for him, Edwin thought happily.  What could go wrong?

Zane wept when he learned that his Grandmother, Audrey, passed away.  Edwin glanced at the kid and said snidely, "Boys don't cry!" as he ran off to the bathroom and slammed the door.

"Real boys don't cry!" he told himself furiously in the mirror.  No matter how many times he said it, it didn't make him feel better and it didn't stop him from crying anyways.

Marshall knocked on the door once and announced, "I'm coming in."

"No!" Edwin called out, but Dad was already walking in.

Marshall wrapped his arms around Edwin and hugged him. "It's okay to cry, Edwin. We're going to miss her."

Edwin buried his head in his Dad's neck and cried.

Time flew by & Edward was surprised to find an unlikely romance with his grief support partner.  Meredith had lost her husband years ago and volunteered as a grief counselor to those who recently lost a spouse.

Edward felt guilty moving forward, but Meredith explained that it was easier when you ripped the band-aid off.

Apparently it would be easier to get back to living...

"What the...? Excuse me!" Edwin cried in horror when he opened the door and found an old lady lounging in the tub.  When she screeched, he whirled around and ran to the livingroom yelling, "Grandpa!"
Grandpa's plan to get back to the living had a slight problem - it caused him to go into respiratory distress and pass away.

 The news that there'd been another death in the family hit a pregnant Valerie hard.

But as is often the case, on the other side of death is life...

Welcome to the world Emma Carpenter!
