Chapter 32: Week 9, Friday Evening
Ah, l'amour! What is there to say about young love? All these teenagers in the Vandersim house, all these raging hormones. Gregory has been wanting to kiss this young lady ever since he met her a week ago. Finally, the moment has arrived.
I've never seen a nose quite like that, but they say love is blind. Gregory and his sweetheart are happy, and that's what matters.
Friday evening Pippa and Sebastian sit chatting after everyone else has gone to bed.
Pippa: Marilyn and Christopher are still here? Why haven't they moved out?
Sebastian: Didn't you know? There's a baby on the way! We can't kick them out now.
Sebastian continues: Anyway, we've got plenty of room for them since we can't bring in any more orphans with only a week to go.
Pippa: I guess. You know, now that I'm a Vice President, they expect me to entertain the party faithful. I'm supposed to throw a fundraiser party. Remember all the parties we used to have?
Sebastian: That was a long time ago.
Pippa: I'm not sure I remember how to have a great party.
Sebastian: You used to hand the guest list to Max and leave it up to him.
Pippa: Oh my - what am I going to do?
Sebastian: I'll cook something. And put on some good music for dancing.
Pippa: I know! I'll invite the children all over for a party on Saturday. It'll be great to see them all together again, and we can see how it goes. Then have the fundraiser on Sunday.
Sebastian: Sounds good.
