A few days later at the Quinn household, Jenaraa is still camping out in her sister’s spare room…
Jenaraa: Thanks for letting me stay…I uh…this is awkward, being nice is hard for me
Adaraa: You’re my sister. We look after eachotherMalavai: But you haven’t left the house in days and we’re worried…
Adaraa: I think it’s time to get Doc over here so we can talk about this
Jenaraa: Uhhhh…sure, why not. I don’t see how that could go horribly wrong…
Cole got up early and found out the hard way that the early bird does not get the worm.
Instead there’s mostly just lukewarm coffee and sadness.Lana comes over to tell everyone the news!
Auryyn: We can be labour buddies!
Lana: By that do you mean just screaming at one another?
Auryyn: YES Theron: I’m so happy for you and Raela! Little Lanas!
Lana: And you are not going to believe how I found out. Sit down…One alien abduction tea party story later…
Lana: …and just like that, I’m home, with the knowledge that Raela and I are going to be parents!
Theron: That’s amazing, but I just can’t believe they put milk in their tea though…
Lana: I know, right?! Auryyn: Hey, look, it’s not chicken nuggets!
Theron: Who are you and what have you done with Auryyn?
Over at the Tirall household, the monster under the bed is causing mayhem! Everyone is up and about…But Daddy Arcann is on the case
Arcann: Come out, come out wherever you are…Xephyra: Daaaaaaaaaaad there’s a monster under mine and Thexan’s beds, too!
Arcann: I’ll be right there, Princess!Arcann: Come on, let’s have at you…And after a hard battle involving monster spray, Arcann is victorious and declares the bedrooms safe once again!In the early hours of the morning, Auryyn gets up for a midnight snack and finds herself going into labour!…Which obviously sends Cole into a huge panic They hightail it to the hospital…Auryyn: COLE I’M FINE
Cole: *Incoherent panic noises*Hours later, Aurora is finally welcomed into the world! Auryyn: Cole, come see…ah. He’s passed out in the corner….
At home, Lanyssa is the first to investigate the new arrival!Lanyssa: Mummy was I that small?
Khessya: Yep! And her brothers come to say hello, and look very confused by their little sister!Cole: All right little guy, your Mama needs sleep
Theron: You too, Eren
Eren: OwwwhOne new addition after another! It’s go time over at the Theirin residence
Lana: It’s happening!
Blizz: Oh my!Raela: I just came from the hospital!
Lana: I don’t think there’s time to go back! And I don’t think I can ask the baby to hold on, even if I say “please”! Blizz: If only someone here had been through this before…
Raela: NOT HELPING MOTHERBreathe, Lana!
Blizz: You’re fine, you’re fine…And soon it’s all over! Dante, Iclyn and Luna arrive safe and sound!
NB: Lana would NOT move from the garden, despite my attempts to get her to go to hospital or just go inside xD! …and everyone is quick to get stuck in!And Blizz is taking her grandmother duties seriously!Raela: You did great, but I gotta run, I’m on call again…Oh dear! Someone’s all tapped out!
Raela: I’m having the craziest night! I just had triplets!
Malavai: I thought I was rushed off my feet with the twins! During her shift, Raela takes some time out to check up on Lana and the little ones!
The next morning, Jenaraa plays with her niece and nephew while she waits for her (ex??!!) husband to arrive…And boy does he look miserable!Jenaraa: What do you have to say for yourself, Archiban?
Doc: Was the full name necessary?
Jenaraa: Definitely, you should see your faceDoc: Do you want a serious discussion or just to be mean?
Jenaraa: Both. And if you wanted a “serious discussion” then maybe you shouldn’t have cheated!Adaraa: Jen, be nice…
Jenaraa: This IS me being nice…A few very heated discussions later…
Adaraa: I don’t know what you were thinking, Doc. No one hurts my family and gets way with it. Jenaraa will be staying here indefinitely. Now, please leave.
Uh-oh! Doc doesn’t look pleased with that at all! Malavai: You were great
Adaraa: Did you get out of bed just to tell me that?
Meanwhile, Khessya is enjoying spending some time on her art passion…
Theron: Why won’t you stay still, your Mum is trying to paint you! You’re like a wiggly worm!
Lanyssa: WIGGLE WIGGLE!Theron: You know, I think if you’re serious about this art thing, you should go for it
Khessya: It’s tempting…
Theron: We can host your gallery right here!Upstairs, Auryyn spends some time bonding with her daughter…
Auryyn: Your official nickname is “Chicken Nugget” because that’s what you made me eat
Auryyn: I’m glad we agree
Looks like having a baby in the house is taking it’s toll on Cole as he grabs some Zzzs at work! At the front desk, Senya is dealing with a very important case over the phone!
Senya: Ixa, how do you feel about blue and white for a colour scheme? Yes I’m at work. No, solving crimes is NOT more important than yours and Arcann’s wedding!!!
That night, Jenaraa and Adaraa hit the karaoke machines in an attempt to cheer Jenaraa up!
And it looks like it’s working!
“DON’T STOP BELIEVING”
“HOLD ON TO THAT FEEEEEEEEEEEEELING”
Sampling the city’s cuisine doesn’t seem to be going so well…
Adaraa: Chopsticks are hard! Adaraa: “Since U Been Gone”, huh…
Jenaraa: It’s like the universe is telling me something…
Back over at the Shan&co residence, Khessya has been a little busy!
Khessya: Okay, it all looks perfect! Khessya: Just going to order more baubles to be safe, though…Theron: Wow! This looks amazing!
Auryyn: How do you have the patience for these things?
Khessya: *Stands in corner looking proud*
