Chapter 7.2 Puppy Love
With more space in the house, Whitney and Allyson moved in. After a few weeks, it was easy to tell who was more focused on proving their worth as successful contributes towards the family’s wealth.Bounty still managed to find the time to visit her family, unlike Aero. Although she was still only engaged to Samuel, with no wedding arrangements in sight, she accidentally stopped taking her pill and accidentally got pregnant. Twix was thrilled that he was going to be an Uncle as it meant more practice for his own children, when he eventually had them.She ended up having a little boy, whom she called Nigel after the father from “The Wild Thornberrys”. Tremayne was so thrilled, he decided to tell Jeffrey every little detail of Bounty’s birth, from every little tear to every droplet of blood.‘Ugh, I can’t stand to live another day with his annoying beeping and attempts to befriend me.’ It was then that Jeffrey learnt that thoughts were a lot more powerful than words, at least when you’re near enough the walking dead as it is.‘Aw come on, I didn’t ask for this!’ Jeffrey grumbled as his human form faded away.Twix, who had been eating waffles, quickly dropped his fork and ran over to cry at the emotional scene. ‘Tremayne, just so you know,’ Jeffrey said, eyes serious, ‘this is all your fault.’‘Hey all, let’s make this one quick, I’ve got a Justin Bieber concert to go to, so…’ ‘….’‘I left my concert ticket right there,’ The Grim Reaper mumbled, head facing the kitchen counter – where Jeffrey had also been standing. The realisation then slowly sunk in. ‘Goddammit Jeffrey!’And so, not only did Jeffrey manage to finally see Justin Bieber in person, he also joined ever-growing outdoor collection of graves.As for Cointreau, she almost ceased to function for the next few weeks.To help with the grief, Cointreau decided to adopt another pet; a very fluffy dog whom she named Ewok. Ewok took a big shine to Snowy. Perhaps more of a shine than Cointreau would have liked. And, a couple of months later, there were two new little additions to the family; Chewie and Buffy Bailey.
