Rose was anxious to get their new house set up and get settled in before the wedding. Mike agreed that it was a great idea and they decided to get the ball rolling two days after the new year.
Aster was still on winter break from school and was a willing volunteer. Teenage boy power is a great thing.
LOL willing when he was not taking selfies to send to Molly .. showing off the guns!
Ugh! The task seems daunting!
Aster stifled a small snicker as he heard Mike gasp, “OHHH! UHH Rose darling … wait … whaa … ”
“Yes honey? What do you need? I have been trying to decide what color to do this room in.”
“UH hon .. wait .. wait … I have an idea! Why don’t we hire a paint crew to do this one for us?” Mike said as he lead her out of the room.
” It would be so much … UM …… I mean … I need you downstairs. I don’t know where to put any of your books.”
Rose shrugged her hesitant agreement and went to clean up.
Mike grabbed up his phone and made the call to hire the painters, “Come quickly!”
His love has many talents but paining rooms is NOT one of them.
Rose looked at the boys as they worked together. She smiled to herself. She loved how much her little brother admired her dear Mike.
“Hey mini Mike,” Rose chided, “We need to get those boxes in. Come on leave the master to his work and give me a hand.”
Hearing a commotion outside, Mike rushed out only to find himself in the middle of an all-out snowball war.
“Help get the boxes in,” he laughed, “right.”
“Hey, he started it,” Rose said winding up her pitch.
Dropping the bags by the bed, Mike pauses to consider that in only a few weeks he will be waking up to this view every morning, in the arms of his beloved wife. His sweet Rose.
Rose seems to have a few pondersings of her own.
Mike shook his head, Augh a broken toilet already. Donning a wrench, Mike chuckled to himself as he made the repair,
wouldn’t the gossip rags love to have a shot of this? He could see the headlines now.
Best get my scepter out and finish the job, he muses.
Freshen up a bit, for the Pizza (wo)man cometh.
Aster heads back home to grab mom and dad for the open house later this evening.
A little time alone …
A boy .. a girl .. and a sunset. Perfection!
“I know I hear .. they are here!” Rose batted her eyelashes.
“What if I don’t WANT to go? What if I want to stay here?”
“Oh, it is lovely!” Charlii and Violet were already looking around as the rest of the gang were arriving.
Rose was very excited to see all the ladies BUT especially so Diana, the designer and architect who made this Rose’s Chateau happen.
“I cannot express my gratitude enough for all the work you put into this wonderful gift for Mike and me!”
“THANK you so much!”
UH OHHH! NO joy in Mudville!
Salome whispers to Aster, “Well maybe if we all just pretend we cannot hear it.”
“Rosie,” Bruno was shouting as he hurried down to the beach, “Everyone has been looking for you! What are you doing out here? Why did you leave without telling anyone where you had gone?”
“I heard the singing again, Bruno.” Rose’s face was anxious and confused. “It was drawing me here. I cannot find … ”
“Rosie, you have to come back to the house. You cannot be out here alone. Come on with me my love. ”
Bruno’s heart was heavy with dismay. Rose Red had been behaving very peculiarly for the past few weeks. He would insist she make a visit to Doc Ellie tomorrow.
With most of the children gone from the nest now, Prince and Snow decided to move out of the big house. Both longed to be near the shore.
Prince had commissioned workers to renovate the old lighthouse that stood near the shore where they first met.
OH MY those two. Frost on the roof but FIRE in the furnace.
Snow watched as her baby boy left for school. This was the right move, she knew it in her heart. He was so happy here and with Officer Theis right door, he was safe too.
