Still on their second honeymoon, the two lovebirds eat their dinner, musing about their wonderful life.
After dinner, Shayne gets a twinkle in his eye. “You know, sweetheart, we could always try again for another baby. Hmmm?”
(NO, Ember! You’re not ready for another child! Just wait until Tori grows and can take care of herself. PLEASE?)
But she doesn’t listen to me.
(***slams head on desk*** 🙄🙄🙄)
And the fireworks fly!
(As usual. 🙃)
“Wee! I’m pregnant,” Ember cries.
(Oh joy. 😐 Now we’ll have MORE babies that you won’t take care of. I’m going to have to hire a nanny AND another butler to cover this child. You better be glad you have enough money because this won’t be cheap. ***crosses arms***)
At breakfast, Ember shares her good news. “And Creator says we have to hire a nanny and another butler. Do you think that’ll be enough?”
“Sweetheart, I don’t know who this Creator is, but tell them to mind their own business. We can take care of our children ourselves.”
(***looks into the future*** NO YOU CAN’T!!!!)
Weeks pass and Ember wants to visit her brother, Messiah, and her brother-in-law, Burton. They have a cute little daughter, Tempest.
They just bought an old house in the middle of Senbamachi.
Isn’t their family picture cute?
The couple sits down with Messiah and some green ghosty flies by.
Ember looks up. “Ehhhh, darling, did you see that? Are we…glowing?”
Messiah gets up and says, “Don’t mind them. They’re Tempest’s pets. Aren’t they, my little witchling?”
Tempest scowls. “Yuck.”
(Omg! She could be cast as the lead in Chucky’s Bride remake! AHHHH! And what’s she “yucking” about?)
I find Shayne and Ember doing their usual.
(Guys! Get a room! There’s a child present. 😡 She might be a demon, but she’s still a child!)
Breaking apart, Ember whispers, “I think Creator is right, we shouldn’t be kissing in front of everyone like this.”
Shayne responds, “Who’s this Creator? Do I need to take care of them for you? They seem to be invading our lives.”
(***shakes fist*** You better believe I invade your life. In fact, buddy, just for that blasphemous speech, you can shovel the snow outside!)
I watch in satisfaction as Shayne slaves, breaking a sweat.
But he doesn’t shovel for long since he’s outside, what do you think Shayne’s going to do with his free time?
Check on Tori?
Clean the dishes?
You guessed it.
He’s trying to buy MORE ski equipment from the broken vending machine.
Shaking it, Shayne cries, “Give me my snowboard, you dirty rotten thief!”
Months pass and poor Ember looks as if she’s about to burst.
She stares at me pitifully. “Why, Creator? Just WHY?”
(Hey, I told you not to have another kid so…🤷♀️)
At least Tori isn’t covered in green fumes and her stomach is full for once.
She talks to her stuff unicorn,”You’re bwave and I wuv you.”
(Awww…well, that’s the ONLY way she’s going to learn to talk around here. Kids gotta be resourceful because her parents certainly aren’t going to do it.)
Finally, Shayne comes home with this banner!
But that just means he has to work longer hours.
He comes off the slopes without resting first and he’s exhausted.
But there’s no time to sleep because he has to read a bedtime story to Tori.
(Good Daddy! Your wife is about to pop and could use the help!)
In fact, I hear Ember cry out.
“Ugh…Creator. Kill me if I say I want another child.”
(I’ll remind you of this moment. Don’t worry. 😑)
She groans and moans until…
A cute little girl is born!
Shayne is thrilled.
“Awww…you have red hair just like your good old Pops.”
Yeah…but Shayne? You do have another child over here who has FAILED!
(UGH! ***rips hair out***)
