Told by Jemma.
It was the night of Blue’s high school prom. She wanted to stay over with us since it was closer to the school and where Freddy lived. That’s what she told Mom anyway. I think it was also because it was too crazy at home and I could help her with her outfit and girl stuff, ’cause Mom would be too flighty and distracted.
Aren’t those shoes I picked out wicked?
For a vampire who just lived two streets away though, Freddy was being awfully slow.
“He should be here by now. How could he possibly take longer to get dressed than me? And do you realize how long it took me to strap these sandals up?”
Finally he showed up in a cab.
“About frikkin time.”
“I was having wardrobe malfunctions.”
Well, they’re a good pair. Both a coupla grumps.
But I guess that’s what makes them compatible.
“You look really nice, Blue.”
“Awww, thanks. So do you.”
“Shall we go, m’lady?”
And there goes another one, all growing up. *sniff*
“Hi Mom. Yeah, she’s fine. He came and got her. No, I’m sure she is not doing to skip off to the bar like Tegan did.”
“I’m doing okay. Getting a bit heavier to carry around. Heavier than I was with Jovi around this time.”
“Of course I’ve been dancing. Gotta stay fit. Even with this baby inside of me.
…Kids music? Yeah, it’s my favorite. I listen to it all the time. Oh… it gives me a higher chance of twins? Hmmm.”
Phoenix had to go to work, Blue was at prom, and Jovanna was with a friend, so I decided to change into my sneaks and go for a walk in the neighbourhood.
At least to the park and back. That was about all I could handle with this baby weight, but we needed some fresh air and exercise.
I thought I saw a scary figure in the park, but luckily it was only Jaxen Miles.
“Well, look at you! How did I not know you were expecting?”
“I dunno, I guess we haven’t seen each other in a while.”
“I take it it’s Phoenix’s, hey?”
“Yes. Of course!”
“Mind if I…?”
“No, go ahead.”
“Well then, no wonder you are so big. Your chance of twins is great.”
“Really? How can you tell that?”
“I’m a witch, remember?”
“Oh my god, I totally didn’t know you were like, a witch baby doctor type thing.”
“No, just a witch.”
“Can you tell if I’m having a boy or girl?”
“No, but I can conjure up an apple for you. That will help make a boy, because I know you already have a girl.”
“Anytime, hun. That’s what friends are for, right? And congrats again.”
“Thanks! See ya ’round.”
“So, did you know that Jaxen Miles is a witch and he can tell if we’re having twins or not?”
Blue: “You’re having twins?”
“So that’s why you’re so freaking huge.”
“Well it’s not 100% yet but I’m working on it. How was grad?”
“It was great! Freddy was such a charmer. AND… I beat out the mean girl and the most popular girl in school for Prom Queen!! Can you believe it? ME? Prom Queen!”
