Junior laughed. "Not quite yet. I could do with a couple hundred more!"
"Yeah, yeah..." Theo got up and wandered towards the bar for a refill. He felt so antsy for some reason.
Christa smiled and put her hair behind her ear. "Hi! Yeah, I thought I recognized you!"
"I'm here with Kent & Junior. Come say hi!"

Theo crouched down so that he was level with his niece. Putting a comforting arm around her shoulders, he told her that Marylena was fine. "You're just going to be a big sister!"
Gayle looked solemnly up at her uncle. "I hope it's a girl!"
Even if one of them was her brother!

Christa gasped in pleasure. "Of course, Theo!"
Theo smiled. "Let's go tell my family!"
"Way cool," Parker said after hearing about Theo's engagement.
