"Why not sell herbal remedies and those gem stones that are supposed to soothe the soul?"
And so that was Shaena's job. She'd go out and collect stones, herbs, flowers and insects on a Monday, and the pair of them would spend the rest of the week polishing the stones and grinding the plants and insects into fine dust to be compacted into pills.
"Sorry, I couldn't get away from Alex-"
"EW! Shae! There are kids present!"
"Hey, nothing wrong with appreciating the fine male form." Kaity grinned as she sat at her own desk to start polishing. The twins were playing calmly with their toys, as they always did.
"It's nothing, just a tiny argument. Didn't want to go to work without clearing it up because he's working late again tonight." Kaity wanted to point out that Alex was 'working late' a lot recently, but didn't seem to bring in any extra money. Remembering how she'd pointed it out last week, and the two hours of the silent treatment she'd recieved as punishment, she changed the subject.
"Of course, Alex won't be back 'til about ten, so I'll help you put the girls to bed after if you want?"
"Of course I want. You can be on diaper duty." Kaity grinned at Shaena's disgusted expression. "You know you love it."
"Mummy! Snow is fun!" Liana gurgled as Layla bought her through to the living area.
Luis and Layla didn't mind when Kaity asked if they would be ok watching her twins for a few more hours while she took Shaena out drinking, even though Shaena was adamant that she didn't need cheering up, and didn't want to go to a club midweek, she soon went along with it when Kaity gave her the puppy-dog eyes.
"Bonnie! Shae! Drinks are served!"
Shame she couldn't remember anything past that...
Yep. Luis, Layla, Liana and Lyris Lansing. LOL! :p
Sophie is the one who inherited Kaity's eyes and hair, Jaydean is the one with darker eyes and hair. I realised I didn't really differentiate between them throughout the whole chapter. And yes, I made them identical, because I was annoyed when they weren't >:( I did make them look slightly different though, it should be more obvious as they get older and dress themselves differently, though.
You may have noticed (probably not, it didn't feature a lot) that I did a LOT of renovations on the legacy house. I'll post all that in it's own chapter in a few days, because I have a lot of pictures and am very proud of it :)
