Setting things Straight

Chapter 2.7 Blair seemed to absolutely adore her baby brother. I caught her a few times teaching him her name, and it was so cute! Later while he was napping, she proceeded to tell Dina the Dino to watch over him. Such sweet a girl. I could tell she was going to be the greatest big…

Minor Hiccups

Chapter 3.3 Blair and Blake became so close it was amazing. One night, while practicing her cooking skills, Natalie noticed the two of them sneaking out. She told me she’d tracked them down at the park and stayed there to keep an eye on them. Once they headed back to the house, she hurried back before they…

Heartbreaks

Chapter 2.6 A few days pass, and our little boy Blake joined the family. With a house full and a ton of joy in the midst, Ailani officially forgave Mitchell for the fallout he and Blair had a few weeks back. We invited Mitchell over to meet our new addition. Mitchell was so excited to meet Blake,…

A Growing Family

Chapter 2.5 I was less worried this time around, the baby was definitely Ailani’s. I hadn’t missed that drained feeling of being pregnant though. It was back to taking naps most days for me, while Ailani looked after Blair. For the first time, I felt like things were going to be okay. I couldn’t believe how…

Bumps in the Road

Chapter 2.4 This pregnancy was no different from the first, after a while I could barely control my bladder. While waiting for the plumber to leave, I had an accident in the sitting area. What an embarrassment. Luckily, Mitchell was around to keep an eye on Blair while she played outside. I needed a little…

Things are Looking Up

Chapter 2.3 Ailani sold his first song “Alannah,” I’m not sure who Alannah was but people really did love his music. He still played in the park from time to time, but recently scored a few gigs in new pub in Oasis Springs. He’d hoped to be featured in a pub. Maybe one day. On the…

A Real Family

Chapter 2.2 Between writing, selling my books, and going to work at the Post, this pregnancy was definitely getting the best of me. I had to call out sick when drinking juice and taking naps weren’t enough. Of course Ailani had to tell his best friend Mitchell, who was very excited. Or so it seemed….

Life’s Surprises

Chapter 2.1 Thing got a little crazy 0ver the next few weeks. Our relationship had gotten a little better. However our house was falling apart not to mention, appliances and electronics started breaking. Eventually Ailani got them all repaired, but we both knew it was time for some upgrades. We just couldn’t afford them. So I…

Different Views

Chapter 1.10 As time went on, I focused on my music. I really wanted to get a few compositions under my belt. It had been weeks since I told Natalie about the Crest. We didn’t really talk much after that. Natalie came to watch me play a few times in the park though. Maybe she…

Withdrawn

Chapter 1.9 The very next day, we tied the knot in the park next to our lot. Afterwards we cloud gazed until our backs were sore from the hard ground. This was the best moment in my life. Later that afternoon, I went ahead and told Natalie about the Highlander Crest and how I’d live…

Committed

Chapter 1.8 Eventually, we began to really get to know each other. Dancing, cloud gazing, even sleeping in the same bed (no literally sleeping). I guess this counted as dating, or as close as we could get to it considering. I fell harder for this beautiful woman and I could only hope she felt the same…

Evolving

Chapter 1.7 The next day we were able to scrounge up a computer from an old abandon shop. It needed some work, but Natalie was up for the challenge. Soon she was practicing her writing. We also found an old violin. It took awhile for me to find replacement strings but once I did I…
