Play me ;)
Later on the next day, as the sun was setting in the sky, Ana and Zander got to see their new home.
Ana admired that the boys had paid attention to detail: they had managed to put some flowers out front.
“Whoa babe, this place is perfect!” Ana said as she gawked in Awe
Zander admired the kitchen, because yes, it was 'his' space. Who ever said that the woman in the house should make the sandwiches is nuts. Even the lighting had his touch.
“Let's go out to celebrate hun,” squealed Ana. Their friends could move the furniture. Yeah Ana could be bossy at times.
First stop was to Jamie Lio's party. They hadn't caught up in a while, with Ana keeping quiet and trying to get ahead in her career.
“I expected you to have a different kind of party, what happened to the wild child in there Jamie?”
Jamie just smiled at Ana with his dimplish grin. “We have to grow up some time don't we Ana? I heard Rue has been doing the same. Jarabi informed me they have 2 kids. Who would have ever thought those two would raise a family? I was thinking the dead was their kind of deal.” Jamie's eyes danced as he spoke. Ana always knew he had a crush on her; some things never change.
Ana heard a baby cry. “Who's little tyke?” She asked.
“My uncle's, this house is rather crowded these days.” Jamie said as his cheeks flushed.
Ana giggled as she walked down the hall and into the room of the small babe.
“Awww, aren't you an adorable wee soul,” Ana swooned.
“Ahhh I hope you're not planning on having those anytime soon.” Zander said.
“Do you make a habit on sneaking up on people, hon?” Ana laughed.
Zander just laughed and kissed his girlfriend, before walking off to the kitchen to sit down for the meal.
Apparently Jamie still cant cook that well, but Mac and cheese is always a winner. The two of them stayed yarning about old times afterwards, and later decided to head out on a date.
So the two of them went out and 'cut some shapes' at the Holy Grail. It was such a fantastic evening. They were both so tired after they headed off home to bed (which they do not share, would you believe that?)
The next morning while Zander was out gardening, Ana picked up their baby and went out to see Dad. “Babe, I am just heading out to see the kids, you want to come?” Ana asked as she was petting Lady Muck.
“No, I am ok, I need to pluck up [pull up? Harvest?]these veggies and get them to the market. I am sure I will see them tomorrow.” Zander smiled up at her. Ana returned his smile as she kissed her baby and put him down.
“At least you have Lady to keep you company.” And with that she went to catch a cab.
“Oh hey Ana, I didn't know you were dropping by,” Jarabi said, looking a little surprised. “Oh did Rue not tell you?” Ana questioned. “Nope.” Said Jarabi just leaving the question answered but hanging as well. “Coy is in the living room, I'm just doing a bit of house work.”. Ana smiled a sad sort of smile as she walked inside.
As Ana picked up her nephew, she wondered where her sister had gone. Her smiles were completely genuine whenever she was around the boys. She hugged Coy so close as she thought more of what was up with her sister. She had been doing so well in the last few months.
Ana lost that train of thought when she tickled Coy and heard his childish cackle.
Ana put Coy down and kissed him on the forehead. “Ana, can I grab you for a moment?” Jarabi called. “Yeah, just give me a sec,” she called back and scruffled her nephew's hair. “See ya tomorrow, scragamuffin.”
Jarabi then goes on to inform Ana that Rue is currently on a two day stay are the rehabilitation unit. She had gone back into insomnia again, and they are just running a few tests and seeing how she is coping. “Just don't let her know you know, or I will be dead,” he adds in at the end and screws his face up. Ana wonders if he is the type of guy who lets his wife beat him. Then giggles because it is such a redonkulous thought.
Ana felt like doing something nice for her boyfriend. So she went out to the community garden to pick some new plants for his garden. As she worked, she wondered whether or not she should go see her sister, and hoped Rodrigo is not noticing any of this. Should she invite him to stay over for a sleepover? “No,” she thought, it is probably best not to go stepping on people's toes and let them ask for help if needed.”
Just as Ana was about to leave, someone came in. “Hey Mum, are you ok?” asked Ana, looking a wee bit worried. Jordan was puffing away, and she looked up. “Odd place for you to be hanging out dear. Your mother was just trying to go for a run, I don't think I have it in me no more.”
Ana sighs and helps her mother to the bench. “You know you're not young anymore right? You have to take it easy,” she let out, flustered. “Yes, yes I know Ana, take a chill pill or something will you?” Jordan said, smiling at her daughter. Ana just rolled her eyes and kissed her mother on the forehead.
“Right, I better get off to work or Dad will have me for breakfast if I am late. PLEASE call a taxi home ok?” Jordan just smiles and waves.
That evening Ana got a promotion. She could not wait to get home and tell Zander.
“Ohbabeguesswhat” * takes a breath * “IgotapromotionandnowIamamemberofthesymphonicquartetbabe, Quartet” With the huge grin on her face Ana grabbed her man. “I fricken love you.”
Zander giggled a bit and gazes into her eyes. “I love you too babe.”
“You really are some thing amazing.” Zander started, and Ana blushed as she stood there in awe.
“There is no words, that can express the way I feel. And nothing that can stop this path in life.”
“Ana, I want to do this all the proper way. I want to give your my heart, my soul and my body.” Zander started jabbering. “Babe what are you doing?”
“Just shut up a minute would you. With this I present this small token, don't worry, it wont bite.”
Ana: * Oh my freaken god, has he caught something and put it in a box? Or is this real? Am I dreaming? *
“Ana Malkier, would you be the pleasure of becoming my wife?” Zander gazed at this beautiful woman standing in front of him. She was in pure shock.......
and pure ecstasy. “Hell YEAH!” and with the Zander put the ring on her finger, which it filled with promise, joy and the family he never had.
