Skye came to poop my party (baby 38 and 39)

Dearest Electra,

I mentioned the fact that it is warm here my last letter. I come to regret this as, I am informed it was winter at the time. Now that it's spring it's even hotter. I actually think that it is just God trying to kick me in the balls (in a metaphorical sense) for complaining about the temperature. My fingers are sweaty writing this and therefore I encourage you to acknowledge exactly how devoted I am to you. In your last letter you were telling me about the kids; they've grown up so fast! And judging by the pictures they have all inherited my dashing good looks. I'm really missing you. And water. But mostly you.
Sincerely~ Alex xxx


To start I got a hair cut, not just for style reasons but my split-ends had split-ends. Upon my arrival home I was greeted by the wet tongue of Mofussa licking my shins.
I couldn't be bothered taking him for a walk, so I just picked him up and took him to the basement with me (I'm a terrible person, I know) I was only semi-down the stairs when the sound of music drifted through my ears, it was Cas. He had been learning to play the piano for a week and he already sounded like a pro.

"Nice work" I smiled as I walked past him

"Thanks" Said Cas in return, not looking up

I placed Mofussa on the treadmill as I passed it, flicking on the switch to turn it on (yet another reason I am a terrible person) I stood in front of the aisle, maybe I should learn to paint. Always good to have a backup plan in case I become infertile or I get Ovary cancer or something. So I picked up the brush and began to paint.

After an hour or so I put down the brush.
I decided not to quit my day job.

I went upstairs to check on Snow, who was learning to walk with Arthur. I stood at the door, watching them for a while before I interrupted.

"Dinner time" I grinned.

Arty looked up at me, staring dead into my eyes. Snow did not, however, allow this moment to last. She clung to my leg and glared at my face. I picked her up (I think that's what she wanted) I kissed her on the head gently.

Arthur stood up from the ground "So what we having?" he said

"Mac and cheese" I smiled "Nothing fancy, but I'm lazy and suck at cooking"

Arthur seemed to accumulate kids as he walked to the kitchen, I followed after with Snow in arm. Then we all sat down and ate, the food was slightly burned but edible anyway.
I waved the kids off for their school prom. They all looked so beautiful and grown up. I remembered when they were in primary school and how close Cas and Dean were, not any more. They seemed to have drifted apart since then, Cas hadn't changed but Dean had, a ladies man he was now. Cas hadn't had a girlfriend yet, but maybe he was just too busy studying to get one. I watched them all, all dressed up.

"Wait!" I yelled

They all stopped and turned "What?" Sam asked

"You didn't think I'd let you leave without a picture did you?" they all sighed but walked to the stairs anyway. "Say cheese!" The camera flashed and they bustled on. My babies, growing up.

It had been a pretty busy day so far, so I decided to redeem my activity with blogging.

Multiple hours and sore eyes later the email tab popped up. I clicked on it, this probably had something to do with that old lady's hamster a accidentally killed. But no, it was from Skye:

Hi Lecci, it's been a while, especially considering your inability to leave people alone. Excuse my snark but you haven't called in months. You could be dead, I mean, I wouldn't mind if you were dead, I just want you to tell me. Keep that in mind when you die 'tell Skye' but yes, anyways. I hear you wear glasses now? That's cool. I mean, I could just be  a hypocrite because my girlfriend wears them. Oh well.
What this email was trying to say is: We should meet up. Preferably today, if convenient. 
if inconvenient come anyway.

Right. That was today's plans set out. I would go into town, meet Skye, kill demons. Okay, we probably won't be killing demons but well, you never know.
I put on my shoes and grabbed a vile of salt (don't judge me) and left the house. I was going to pick her up from her house. Her car was apparently in repairs. I told her, hitting innocent children would dent her hood but she didn't listen.

I pulled up to her house, where she was stood, arms folded. "What took you so long?"

"Stop complaining and get in" I opened the door for her.

I turned up the radio, playing the new Panic! At the disco song miss Jackson.

"Can't we listen to something else?" She whined.

I shook my head "House rules, driver picks the music, shotgun shuts her cakehole"

She crossed her arms and mumbled something along the lines of 'I just want my mullet rock'

We arrived in town at around six, it was pretty busy but we could manage. First stop, the book store. Skye decided to buy most of the shop but I settled with the entire collective works of Shakespeare. Grabbing some food she and I sat on a bench in the park
"Look!" Shouted Skye, a mouthful of burito. She began yelling this every time a man went past.

"What are you doing?" I asked her

"Finding you a new challenge father" She said "Because, I wasn't going to mention it, your challenge is going slowly"

"Thanks. Do you do this to Paisley?"

"Paisley and I do share a more profound bond"


"I wasn't going to mention it." She whispered. She looked up "Him!" She yelled at the top of her high pitched voice

The man she was pointing at was blue. Not like, sad blue, I mean actually blue. He had blue skin, with blue hair that had white streaks in it. His ears were pointed. He looked pretty attractive for a blue guy.

Skye spoke quietly "I think he's a goblin"

"A goblin?" I asked "Like in lord of the rings? Aren't they supposed to be ugly?"

"Apparently not." She said, before I could say another word she was up on her feet, chasing after the man (Or goblin or whatever)

"Wait!" I chased after her. The goblin turned to face me, ignoring Skye completely

"Hi" He said

"Hi" I said back

"I'm Dancy" He stretched his arm out to introduce himself

"Electra" I replied as I shook his firm palm.

Skye walked away "My work here is done"

"So..." He said

"So..." I repeated


Lets just say that one thing led to another and now I'm pregnant.

As soon as I got home the teens were standing in a line. They were ready to age up.

Lilith graduated high school with flying colours, and straight into theatre, her natural gift meant that she was instantly snapped up by the production 'Annie' I visit her sometimes and see her shows, I have to say she's pretty good!

Ruby still hasn't decided what to do with her life, so she has joined university and is studying law (I don't even know) She decided that it would be the easiest application but I saw her face when she got her first assignment, she didn't look too pleased

Samantha also got into uni, but a different one to her sister. She became the first Danton to get into Harvard. I'm proud of my baby girl. (she obviously inherited my intellect)

Dean works at a restaurant as a chef. I have to say, we were all pretty shocked to know that our little tough boy was a cooking fanatic all along.

Castiel is also in the same theatre production as Lilith, playing the piano in the background. But that's only to pay for the university he's going to. I think he's going places.

Snow brings a tear to my eye with her adorable looks, with a sense of humour to match.

Shortly after the kids left the house, leaving just Arthur, Snow and I, I went into early labour. I gave birth to two beautiful twins, Holly is blue just like her father and Jake who inherited my skin tone. They are both really quite cute together

A new beginning baby 37

Even though it was already past dinner time I was still laid in bed. I didn't want to get up. I didn't want to continue with life like I had before, because it wasn't like before, not without Alex. He had been gone for a month now, and I didn't know how to deal with that.

Arthur had been great though, not that I told him that, not that I told anybody anything at that moment. He was always keen to get up and feed the babies, right into childhood. Especially when I was too busy cocooned in my own self-pity. Most days I didn't even get out of bed. And today wasn't going to be any different.

"Momma?" I heard a weak voice coming from the direction of the door. I turned my body slowly to look at my daughter. It was Ruby.
"Yes honey?" I said weakly, my eyes barely open.
"Uncle Arthur says that he made breakrast" She said excitedly.
It was rare that Arty ever made breakfast for me, he hadn't done so in months. As flattered as I was, I was slightly upset that he had ruined my plans for procrastination that day.
"Okay Ruby" I spoke quietly. I was shocked with what came out next "I'll be down in five"
With that Ruby left, skipping away from the door. I didn't understand how she could be so happy, especially when her father is gone and her mum was a train wreck.

I'm pretty sure it took me more than just five minutes to get up and decent. When I arrived downstairs the kids were all sat around the table, scoffing pancakes like there was no tomorrow. My eyes drifted around to Arty, who was stood in the kitchen, flipping pancakes like a pro. I was only a few feet away when he turned around and saw me.
"Woah! there Frankenstein" He giggled. And I understood, I hadn't washed in a week, and my makeup was smudged down my face. "You look rough" He looked me up and down
I sighed and let out a slight noise "I've looked in the mirror, I know how I look"
"Okay then Mrs. Zombie, you can sit down and eat your pancakes" He handed me a plate of golden pancakes, topped with a nob of butter and a slither of treacle. It looked good.
I sat down at the table, between Dean and Castiel. I scanned the table, looking at every little child of mine. They all looked so happy, so beautiful. Lilith smiled at me, a face full of Pancakes making her cheeks puff out like a Hamsters. I smiled back at her, it felt good, I had forgotten what smiling felt like.
"Right then!" Arthur walked up behind Sam, picking up her plate "Time for school!" He then proceeded to pick up every plate on the table, except mine, which I was still slowly eating off of. Sam and Ruby hopped down from their chairs first, collecting their backpacks, lining up at the door. Second was Dean and Cas, they grabbed each others hands and skipped toward the door, lastly, Lilith. They all stood in front of the door, waiting patiently for their Que. The sound of the school buses horn rung out in front of the house.
"Bye kids!" Yelled Arthur as they left.
"Bye" I tried, but the door shut before my words could reach them.
Arty sat down next to me, watching me eat curiously "You should hurry up and eat those otherwise you're gonna be late for your picnic"
"Picnic?" I asked confused
"Yeah" He breathed out and plonked a basket on the table "We're going on a picnic, together"
I wasn't sure if I was pleased or not "Okay"
After I had finished off my breakfast I made my way upstairs. I looked in the mirror, I didn't like what I saw. A skinny, ugly, mess. I sighed and made my way into the en-suite where I hopped into the shower, I allowed the hot water to run down my face and drip from my body. I wrapped a towel around myself and flicked though my wardrobe. I pulled out the most comfortable looking outfit and slipped it on. I didn't bother with makeup, but I put my hair up in a sort-of neat way.
I made my way downstairs, Arthur was waiting for me. "Beautiful" He said quite simply when he saw me. "You ready?" He asked; his hand flung toward me in offering.
"As I'll ever be" I replied.


Arthur walked me across to a good spot on the grass. It was beneath the shade of an old tree, the grass was the greenest in the whole area and the sun hit it so perfectly; it was like a fairytale. From where we sat the view was great, I could see all of the other couples in town, all sat together. I wished I was with Alex.
"You okay?" Arthur interrupted my thoughts.
"What?" I looked around "Erm.. Yeah" I lied. He nodded and sat down next to me.
"Isn't this nice?" He grinned, looking at me adoringly.
I didn't answer.
Without my reaction, Arty began to empty out the picnic basket. He smiled as he picked out the various items, a few sandwiches, some fruit, half a watermelon and orange juice. He placed a sandwich and an apple onto a paper plate and handed it to me. I smiled weakly at the plate.
"You okay?" He asked me, concern flashing across his face.
He placed a large hand on my shoulder "You know you can talk to me right?"
"Then tell me what's up. Is it me? Don't you like the food?"
"No it's not you" I stared at the grass between my thighs
"Then Alex? You miss him don't you."
"Yeah" I sighed
"Don't you worry Electra" He pulled me into an embrace "I'm here for you. You can talk to me anytime"
I pressed my face into his shirt "I know" I mumble amongst the fabric.

Long after I had gotten over my sadness and the watermelon was all but eaten, we decided to call it a date. We packed up the food and folded the blanket. The kids would be home soon and I wanted to be there to greet them.
I was only home for a minute when the children walked in, laughing and talking loudly. Dean saw me and dropped his bag; running into my arms to hug me "I love you mommy" He smiled, pressing his head into my chest. I stroked his hair and kissed his head
"I love you too" I said in return. Ruby and Lilith walked up to me, grinning.
"Mommy..." Ruby started
"Yes?What do you want?"
"Can we go play princesses in the tree house?" Finished Lilith.
"Erm, yeah-" I said. The girls grinned at eachother and skipped away
"Wait!" Yelled Dean "But I want to play soldiers in the tree house!"
"Yeah" Added Samantha.
"Why don't you share?" I said to him
"But girls take up too much space!" Complained Dean "Don't they Cas?"
Dean looked to his brother, who was standing a few feet away "Erm..." Castiel began "I don't mind playing princesses" He said in a monotone voice.
Sam smiled at her brother "Okay Cas, what ever floats your boat. I have homework to do anyways"
Dean crossed his arms momentarily but then relaxed "Okay then Cas, can I come too?"
Cas grinned an nodded boldly. And with that, they both skipped away, out of the door. I smiled as the door shut.

I decided to check my Email, to catch up on what I missed over the past month. I didn't have many.
I flicked through until I got to one from Skye

Hey Electra!
Hows the challenge going? I haven't spoken to you in a while. We should meet up some time or something. I heard about Alex, sorry about that, I liked him. Okay, I lied I didn't like him, but I don't like many people, so don't get upset about it. You should go down to the sperm bank, I heard they got a boat-load of new donations.
Sincerely~ Skye

I closed the Email, I missed that blue-haired-assbutt. But she was right, I needed to get on with my challenge. So I decided to go to the sperm bank.
It wasn't hard. I got there and flicked through the names, and I only got to C when I decided on my next dad. Collins, Misha.
ERMEGERD I was so excited to have Misha's baby. I didn't realize how easy it was to get pregnant with sperm-donations. I understood why people did it now.
(I'm not going to post a picture of Misha Collins, because if you don't know who he is, begin to wonder what you're doing with your life and then google him.)

This is the magnificent product of Misha and I, I decided to call her Snow:

Shortly after the birth of baby 37 I aged up the kids

Lilith became a wonderful teen, she loves to dance and act. She had applied for the local drama college, I hope she gets in.

Ruby seems to have hit that rebel teen phase, it seems as if everyday I get a call from her school about her behaviour.

Samantha is so beautiful, she also loves to read and do homework. I hadn't had a child that was so keen to learn until Sammy.

Dean is such a ladies man, a new girl on his shoulder every day. He likes to stay fit, so I often find him in the gym working out.

Castiel is so unbelievably adorable, he always bears a confused look on his face, but always does his best to make his siblings happy, even if sometimes he messes up.

As for me, well, things have been getting better. And I got a letter through from Alex, and that really helped. I was going to get better, and I was going to become a better parent. I promised.
(The letter:)

I'm sorry it took me so long to write to you. Things have been hectic.
The whole country is roasting. It's like 40 degrees all of the time, and the uniforms are thick as hell. They really need to sort that out. Things are getting rough though, even as I write this we're being bombarded by bombs. Most of my quadrant have already had to evacuate. And they're better soldiers than I could ever be. And it was only last night, when my friend was being taken away in the chopper- I probably won't survive this. Things are too hectic, rough, overwhelming. And I can't do it, I thought I could, but it's just too big, too hard. I will carry on writing to you. But I want you to move on. I need you to get over me, I can't die knowing that you're gonna be sad forever. But don't mistake me, I love you, more than anything. And I would give anything to see you again.
Love, Alexander.

Goodbye ;-; Babies 32 33 34 35 & 36

I wasn't ready to wake up, not ready to say goodbye to my husband- and my bestfriend. The night that we had just spent together was the best in my life. But no; I was going to stay in bed for a little but longer, this moment was too precious to pass.
Mofussa however, seemed to have other ideas.
As I attempted to drift back off he jumped, landing right on my hip.

" Woof!" His paws wobbled on my bony hip.

" Go away" I mumbled sleepily.

" Woof?"

" Leave now mewling quim!" I yelled at him. I was tired after all.

But no, not even my Loki-rage could deter him. Instead he got out his tongue, to lick my face. His wet tongue melted over my cheek and slid around like a slug.

" Ew!" I jumped up " Ew, ew, ew!" I pushed the covers away and leaped out of bed " EWWWW!" I ran to the bathroom and wiped my face. Through the mirror I saw Mofussa walk in, looking all innocent. Pfft yeah right.

" Honey?" I heard Alexander call from somewhere downstairs " Honey, are you awake?"

I sighed " Unfortunately"

I heard him laugh faintly " Well, come down here you numpty!"

I glanced at myself in the mirror one last time, before making my way out. Mofussa not taking the hint, followed.
It hadn't taken long for me to settle in this new house, and I liked it. It was big, certainly spacious enough for the challenge. But best of all; I had paid for it all by myself, no favours or pity needed. It made me feel good to at last stand on my own two feet.
I was particularly surprised at how fast Mofussa settled in too, they say that it should take a while for a dog to get used to a new home... Not Mofussa, my little ninja pup.

After all of the stairs (ugh, the many stairs. I missed the simple one staircase house I used to have)
I met Alex at the bottom. He stood at the bottom step, waiting patiently. I couldn't help but notice that his adorable smile had grown as he saw me. It made me feel special.

" What took you so long?" He asked as he walked by my side to the kitchen.

I turned and glared at the dog " That little bugger on four legs"

He laughed briefly " That's Mo for you"

A slight bang from the bottom floor caught my attention, and apparently Mofussa's. The quiet sound of an angry Brit cursing reassured me, it was just Arthur.
Mofussa leapt down the stairs, taking three at a time. " Ah Crap" I heard Arty say loudly, probably as Mofussa's little face peeked around his corner.

" Tea?" Alex interrupted my train of thought.

I jumped to attention " Definitely" I giggled.

The kettle rumbled, spurting steam all over the cupboards. A slight clink as Alexander put the two cups down on the side. Tea was ready.

" So-" Alex took a sip of his tea "- How did you sleep?"

I smiled at him " Really great actually"

" Good" He grinned. Then he kissed me with warm, wet lips.
He looked a little sad for a moment.

" Are you okay?" I asked him, placing my cool hand on his arm

I looked into my eyes, making me blush " Yeah, I guess it is just kinda hard to be happy when I'm going to be leaving you, my love, while I go out and fight"

Of course, I thought to myself, how could I forget? Today is the day that he goes to serve his military duty.

I smiled sadly. Alex must have noticed, because he took a step toward me and lifted my chin with his finger " It's Okay" He said to me " I'll be back before you know it"

" Yeah" I spoke quietly. I kissed him lightly " I love you" I smiled in his face

" I love you too Lecci" He replied, pecking my lips

Arthur walked into the kitchen " Ehem"

We both looked at him, waiting to find out why he was interrupting us.

" Just had a phone call" He began " It's the military, they said that they're on their way" He looked to me expectantly

" Right" I said " Thanks Arty"

Alex let go of my waist and sighed. He walked over to the sink and swelled out the cups, before leaving the kitchen. Just as he disappeared around the corner he popped back " Just off to get my uniform on, be right back babe" he vanished once again.
A sudden lurching doubled me over, I ran to the bathroom to throw up, that could mean only one thing...

" Are you okay?" It was Arthur, standing in the doorway.

" Yup" I wiped away the grime with my wrist

He walked up to me and looked into my eyes, we were really close " This can't be easy for you" He placed his warm hand on my back " Are you okay with this?"

" Yeah" I lied, nodding.

He raised his brow at me " Sure, I believe you"

I gave him a big hug, swinging my arms around his back " You know me too well" We embraced for a moment before letting go. I didn't tell him what was really going through my head, and I probably wouldn't. He didn't need that burden on him too, I'm his friend after all, and friends would never hurt another.

Arthur spoke again " Now come on, we need to go wave off your husband"

I nodded silently, walking slowly out of the bathroom.
I almost tripped head first over Mofussa, who was laying broadly at the door. He looked a little off.

" You okay Buddy?" I bent over to pat his head lightly.

Arthur bent next to me " He's been a bit odd lately, I mean" He sniggered " More odd, he doesn't seem to be that lean-mean-toe-nibbling-machine I used to know"

" I'll take him to the vets later" I said to myself, just for a check up, make sure everything is okay for my little Mo.

I heard thudding as Alex came downstairs. When he reached the three of us he smiled and gave a many, yet majestic twirl. " What'cha think?"

I stood up and went to tweak his collar " Like my little solider" I kissed him on the lips. I remembered something important, something that he had to know " Alex" I began "there is something I have to tell you-"


I was interrupted by the loud honking of a large, camouflage truck at the bottom of the drive. Alex jumped, kissing me on the cheek " That's my ride"
We walked to the doorstep. The wind was cool, but the day was fairly warm.

" Bye bye my love" He smiled

" You don't get away that easily" I jumped into his arms, kissing him, making sure that the moment wouldn't end quickly.
He pulled away.

" Not that I don't want to kiss you for eternity" He smiled " Trust me, that is exactly what I want.." He turned " But I really must go, I don't know how long that truck will stay"

He kissed me one more time. Then turned to walk away.
He had just got to the bottom of the path when it came to me, I had to tell him, he had to know.

" Alex!" I shouted

He turned and cupped his ear with his hand

" Alex! I'm pregnant!" I yelled

He nodded " Tenant?" He yelled back

I shook my head, he walked on " PREGNANT!" My voice cracked

He had just climbed into the truck, I saw his face light up, he must have heard me. He blew a kiss as the truck drove away into the distance, he did hear me... didn't he? 'I love you', I thought.
I turned fast, not realizing that Arthur was stood there. I subconsciously slipped into his arms, weeping into his chest uncontrollably.

" It's okay" He whispered, stroking my hair " I'm still here"

I sniffed in, not wanting to remove my head from its fleshy pillow. But I pulled away nonetheless.

" It'll get better, I promise" He said

" You promise!?" I was distraught " I am sick and tired of promises!" I cried " Like Alex promised to be with me forever, like my parents promised to look after me" I stopped myself from saying anything more. I breathed in deeply to calm myself.

Looking up at Arty I saw how concerned he was, I think that I hurt his feelings, I knew that I shouldn't have yelled like I did, but I lost control

" I'm sorry" I said, leaning in.

" No" He backed off, not allowing me to go near him " No, I get it" he turned and walked upstairs

" Arty-" I called after him " Arty wait! I didn't mean- Arty!"

He carried on up the stairs until I couldn't see him any longer.
I looked down at Mofussa, I had to get him to the vet, I remembered. I looked back at the place where Arthur once was, wondering if I should go after him or not. I decided against it, Mofussa's appointment was more important.
I picked up the little fluff ball and carried him to the car " Jeez" I said to him " You're getting heavy"
He cocked his head slightly.
As I drove Mo poked his head out of the window, flopping out his tongue and letting the wind dry it out. When we got there we sat at the reception area. The whole room was furbished white, with posters on pet health patched around randomly. Sat next to me was a funny looking three legged cat and a one-eyed dog. Very odd pairing.

I turned to my dog and whispered " It could be worse"

He barked in agreement

" Adda boy" I smiled

The door to the vets office swung open, allowing a petite assistant to enter. " Mofussa Danton?" She called out in a voice which didn't suit her figure.

I stood up " That's me!" I paused " Well, not ME me, the dog, but yes, I guess it is me, in a not-me way" I stepped toward her.

" Just come on in" She said cockily. I didn't like her.

I walked in scowling at the assistant. I placed my dog onto the vets table and sat in the seat provided. I let the vet do his job.

He fondled with hos belly and took his heart rate.

" Right" Said the doctor, placing the heart-thingy back onto his own chest " It appears as if your dog is pregnant" He said calmly

My mouth fell to the floor " You can't be serious?"

" Do I look like I'm joking?" He said

No, he didn't. " No, but I mean... How?"

" Well" He crossed his arms " When one dog is attracted to another-"

" No No, I mean HOW?" I shook my hands around " He's a boy to start with!"

" Apparently not"

" Crud" Was all that I said. I didn't know what else to say.

I walked out with Mofussa on his- or should I say her leash, I wasn't too impressed. The reason that I got a male dog was so that things like this wouldn't happen. Well, that'd be karma, getting me back for abusing Skye.
When I arrived back home all of the lights were out, I presumed that Arthur had opted for an early night, so I unlocked the door and walked inside.

" Hello?" I yelled into nowhere " Anybody in!?"


I plonked my keys onto the side and went into the kitchen. I needed caffeine, too much crap had happened today.
My tummy pulled me down, causing me to drop my cup. I was in labour.
I screamed for Alex without return, I needed him now, I was going to giving birth to his kids, without him.

I had five little babies, three girls and two boys:
Dean Danton

Castiel Danton

Sam Danton

Lilith Danton

Ruby Danton

I was keen to age them up straight away, so that I could look after them easier. I was happy now that the house was full of kiddies again, running around and creating mess. It cheered me up a little, but not even the babies could fill the gaping hole created by the loss of Alex.

The wedding (part 2)

The table that I sat at was large, on it was a white cover, with black detailing. Spotted around, infront of the table that I sat, was multiple other tables, all accommodating my guests. Every place at every table had an elegant glass of bubbly.
I sat by Alex and Natalie. The rest of the table was filled by the bridesmaids, they babbled on about nonsense as the room bustled.

Ting Ting Ting 

Natalie put down the glass and the spoon, satisfied that the rooms attention was on her. She stood up, all eyes were on her. Undeterred by the many eyes on her she began to speak.

" We are all here for my bestfriend's wedding" She cleared her throat " But as far as I am aware, this particular relationship arrangement, also makes her my daughter-in-law" She smiled " I am never going to get used to saying that, I must admit" She sat down, it was much shorter than I expected, but then, what more could she say?

I was the first to stand up, clapping, followed shortly by the rest of the room.

" Ehem" growled Skye. She room was still clapping " EHEM!" She yelled, with little success. I noticed her and tried to hush Alex. " ALL RIGHT BICHES LISTEN UP!"

She room, unsurprisingly fell silent.

Skye looked quite happy with herself. I have to admit, it was unnerving seeing her above all of these people, like some sort of evil mastermind. " It may come as a shock to you" She said sarcastically " But I am also a friend of Electra's, In fact it was actually me who shipped her over to America and housed her in the first place" The crowd was still silent, I think in fear " No need to thank me, but I am the one who made Electra the lean-mean-reproductive machine she is"

I looked up at her, standing there in confidence. Her speech flowed out of her mouth and swallowed the room as it went on.

When I first met Electra, we went out drinking. And I remember thinking, 'Boy. She's actually trying to beat me here.' But she didn't. And she didn't the second time, or the third. And we had some crazy shenanigans those days. But there is one thing she did beat me at.  You see, Electra got married first.  That's why you're all stood here. And as the one that gave her away, I would like to offer her my deepest, most heartfelt congratulations and wishes for a good future. And a full summary of her entire honeymoon

The room was stunned into silence. " WELL CLAP PEOPLE!" She yelled. The crowd jumped up obediently and clapped like there was no tomorrow. She looked at me and mouthed 'the crowd loves me' I winked 'sure they do' I mouthed back.

Shortly after Skye had sit down, and after a fair gulp of Champagne I stood up. The sound of the chair sliding across the grass was loud " Right guys" The guests slowly quietened " We'll be going on to the dancing in just a second"

Skye stood up, the crowd jumped back " First dance time!" I was beginning to wonder exactly how much she had drunk already...
The people burst into life again, making their way to the dance floor. Alex and I stood up shortly after the crowd had moved on

" You ready?" He took my hand, and walked me to the dance area

I smiled " Allow me to apologize in advance for standing on your toes"

He leaned in close, I could feel his warm breath on my neck " You'll do fantastic, you're my little humming bird"

" Lets get this over with" We both made our way to the middle of the floor. I turned to look at Becks, who was sat by the stereo. I nodded to her, to sign that I was ready. Placing my hand gently onto Alex's waist I looked up at him.
The music began to flow around the room. I had chosen the song, it took me forever to pick. I was never known to know what to play music wise, I admitted now, that the song that I had chosen was an uncreative choice. But it was something that meant something to Alex and I, and it was the only one that felt right, this moment would stay with me forever... I was under pressure to make no mistakes. Your song- Elton John.
Alex began to sway slightly, my feet reflected his in every movement, I leaned my head on his chest, I felt warmth beneath his suit, it felt good on my cool cheeks. I heard his heart beating calmly; then I wondered if he could hear my heart: How fast it was beating, how unsettled it was, if he could sense the love I felt for him. I stumbled over his foot slightly, I jumped up, looking around, nobody seemed to have noticed. Despite this, I still fixed my eyes on my feet, being sure not to make another mistake.
" Relax" Whispered Alex softly

I took a breath out and kissed him, my timing was with perfect for the end of the song.
The crowd roared with clapping

" I love you" Whispered Alex

" I love you too"

Skye and Paisley bounced forward " OUR TURN!" They ran onto the dance floor and began dancing together, closely followed by everybody else. The songs flicked about, all manner of music played.
Becks and I had spent hours choosing the tunes for this moment, but it seemed now that perhaps, we had put just a little too much Disney songs in there.. Hell, what am I saying? You can NEVER have too many Disney songs.
We danced the night away.
All of this dancing did, however, make me rather peckish. This made me come to the decision that it was high time that we served the food.
But first we had to cut the cake, much to Chloe's delight it was lemon cake, which, apparently she liked very much. Along with the rest of the guests apparently, because it was gone in just a minute.

Alex and I took the opportunity, while the girls were stuffing their faces, to make our escape.

We arrived home to find Arthur at the door.
" Where were you?" I asked him " you disappeared before the dance!" I smiled " You would have loved it"

" Yeh.." He sighed

" What's wrong?" Alex said, his voice lined with concern

Arty shook his head " Nothing" He rubbed his neck " Also.. Your dog is ill, he keeps on being sick.. And is trying to eat people" Arthur walked away silently, just as Mofussa appeared.

" Hey little buddy" I bent down to give him a scratch on the chin, he licked my hand " You okay?" He looked a little bit different. Maybe it was just him getting used to the new house, he isn't used to it after all.

" C'mon" Alex grabbed my hand " Lets go upstairs"

Alex took his clothes off, smiling bashfully at me. " Give me some love Mrs. Windfield"

I walked toward him " Yes Mr. Danton"

He shook his head and grabbed me by the waist.
We explored eachother, caressing everything that we now shared, it was amazing.
