Welcome to Chapter3 of Fred and Barb’s The French Connection. Please enjoy.

Upon seeing Tessa, when Fred and Barb arrived. Fred was the first to speak.
“Tessa! Good to see you!”
“Hi girls! Welcome to France! How was your flight?” “Our flight was safe and on time.”
“Holly and Crystal home?” “No, they stepped out, they went to the market square. They should be back soon. Come inside and I’ll pour us some nectar.”
“So what’s all the buzz about Tessa?” Barb asked.
“Ahh…you know… I think the girls…err.. well… as far as I know, they both fell in love with the same guy.” Barb looked at Fred with nearly a smirk or was it a grin on her face.
“Tessa for how long have they been dating this guy?”
I have no clue! I guess... well, let’s see… Probably a little over a month?
“Is it serious? Kiss kiss, or more?” Fred wanted to know more about the situation and how deep this relationship has gotten before they talked to the girls.
“You know my dear friends… I really don’t know. I want the girls to have a wonderful time here, but I am here to see they don’t run into problems… wasn’t counting on chaperoning them in their love life.” The three ladies sat there for a moment and wondered, with all the single men here how on earth they could possibly fall for the same guy. Tessa broke the silent thoughts..
“Hey ladies, lets go to the market square, maybe we can catch the girls.”
So off they went…
“May I suggest the bouillabaisse here. Let’s eat. I guess the girls will be here soon.” The café has always been the place where everyone in town came to visit with friends and family. The air was light and crisp. The aroma was heavy with flowers. Ahhh… there they come now!
Holly!!!! Fred said as she stood up to greet her.
Barb saw Crystal standing a few feet behind Holly.
“Holly!! Oh…I am so glad to see you! Are you all right hon?” “Crystal?...Honey…?”
“Mom… I…I… I am so happy to have you here! Can we go back to the house?”
“Sure sweetie, lets tell the others.”
Back at the house Crystal went and sat down and slumped in her chair. Fred began “Sweetie, you and Holly have to talk about this. I can tell you two are avoiding each other. That’s no good! No man is worth that!”
…*sob sob*… “All because of the internet! Holly just met HIM on the net! It’s not fair!”
OMG! “WHAT! What was that? I’m not sure I heard you correctly!” Fred moved in towards where Holly was standing, she just couldn’t believe what she heard. “Holly… you met a guy on the internet?” Holly turned on the defence “But mom… we met a few times. No big deal! He was nice and bought me a Latte. I didn’t do anything daylight would not approve of! I think he is a real nice guy… well…until I found out he is also dating Crystal” At that moment from across the room Crystal's voice chimed in “Yeah right, you had him over here one night!” Holly turned up the volume of her voice “MOM, we did not do anything. Crystal just walked in at the wrong time.”
“Holly…honey… You and Crystal grew up together!” Did it occur to you that, that’s not Crystal’s fault maybe, but this guy’s mistake? What’s his name anyway?”
“Holly… Crystal didn’t know about you and him.
It’s like….I like pancakes… your mom likes pancakes…that doesn’t mean we eat from the same plate!”
“I ate from your plate Barb… but seriously… I know what you mean to say. Listen girls… You talk this out. It’s not worth it. “ “Holly, I…I”
“I don’t know Crystal… I am just so hurt…that you would even think that I would do something like that….I could not figure out what was wrong with you, you quit talking to me”
“I know Holly, I am very sorry for acting so stupid and not trusting you. You are not just family to me you are my best friend too! Please forgive me.”
“Crystal, I could never stay mad at you. Who needs that two-timing son of a…”
“HOLLY!” Fred shouts…. (pretty darn loud too….hurts my ears LOL)
“Mom I was going to say gun… that son of a gun….”
Oh Good grief… After a couple of days of sightseeing and talking about every possible thing...avoiding the heart breaker... it was time to go home for the summer. Tessa had prepared a lovely farewell dinner, and the girls somehow where awfully quiet. They just had their own thoughts and where thinking of the guy who gave them goosebumps, just being close. That was the end of that. They were going home early morning. Tessa just got back from the airport and ready for her morning Latte and read her paper when she saw the cause of the love problems she witnessed just a few hours ago…
That is….wait… there are two?....WHAT?
Meanwhile the girls were heading home...It was a long trip too. The flight and the drive home. Everyone was pretty quiet. Tired mostly they were.
There was still a small bit of unresolved unspoken tension lingering between the cousins.
A good night’s sleep in their own beds was what they needed.. Home, home sweet home.
“Mom, do you think that he cared about me? Why would he do something like that?
I…mean…you know…was it something I did to cause it?”
“Holly you are still so very young and have so much to learn. It’s really hard to say what was going through his head or why he would do that to both of you. What did you say his name was, you never told me.”
“Are you sure you’re ok Holly?”
“Yes mom, I am fine. I’m just tired and ready to go to bed, so if you don’t mind.”
“Oh no, of course not honey. I’ll leave you to your room, but you know where I am should you need to talk”
“Mom, thank you for everything. Good night. I love you.”
“Goodnight skattie, I love you too.”
“Hey Crystal, were you sleeping yet?” Oh good... I really hoped that you were
still awake. I was wondering if you wanted to go to the park or something tomorrow.
Maybe we could talk and stuff?”
“Yeah…. I mean, no….no I was not asleep yet and yeah that’s sounds great!
I’ll meet you at the park. Naw... I don’t care what time. Noonish… yeah that’s a good time. K see you then. Good night cuz. See you tomorrow.”
“Crystal don’t look now. Rowan just walked up.” “Rowan... hey... school out already?”
“Yeah sis, I saw you all over here, thought I’d come say welcome home.”
“Thanks little brother.: “Hey Rowan….Hey Crystal, your mama know you got that
tattoo?” “HEY! NO! and you better not say anything either! Or I’ll tell your mom I saw you and your little girlfriend k-i-s-s-i-n-g! hahahaha”
“Oh aren’t you the funny one. HA HA”
“Rowan ya know I love you… now go play some chess will ya?”
“Crystal, when are you going to tell Aunt Barb about your tattoo.?”
“Holly... why are you not wearing shoes?”
“Now.. don’t you go and change the subject. I ask you first.”
“I don’t know Holly, probably not till she sees it.”
“Hey! lets go swing!”
“You know Crystal, I’ve been thinking about HIM.”
“Oh HIM! you mean Didier.”
“Who?…Didier? Who is that?”
“Oh come on Holly, you know Didier...or ,,,errr Dizzy?.”
“But I thought his name was Sebastien.”
“Sebastien? He told me his name was Didier. GOD... He even gave us different
names. I even had fantasies of marrying him.”
“That’s so funny Crystal so did I.”
“It’s a good thing we discovered his true nature before we fell any more in love with that French guy.”
“Hey Holly there a picnic going on over there want to crash it?”
“Yeah, lets do it!”
“What are we going to do when it’s time to go back to school?”
“Well, Crystal we are going to act like it never happened and focus on our goals.”
“I like that plan cuzin.” “Yeah me too.”
Excuse me… Didier? I mean… Dizzy? Errr…
The two young men stopped in their track and looked at each other puzzled.
“Tessa… Excusez moi… I am Sebastien Marceau, you know me by the name of Dizzy. My brother Didier here…how would you know him?
“Tessa… Yes, Crystal has told me about you, finally we meet! …”said Didier.
AHAAA….That explains a lot!...Tessa finally let out with a giggle.”
The two brothers were speechless… Didier thought: “What? How come my brother knows Tessa…?”
Tessa told the twins what had happened. Sebastien and Didier still were speechless. Tessa told them the girls went back to Sunset Valley and would be out of the country for summer break.

“You better explain this to me Didier” said Sebastien. “How on earth did you manage to go out with Crystal and not tell her you have a twin brother?”
“Well…. I don’t recollecting you telling Holly…now did you… Dizzy…. I guess we need to talk more often…like right now?”
We’ve got ourselves in a big mess mon cher. I think we have managed to break two hearts here. How about my heart? Our hearts? Why didn’t you tell me you were dating a cute Sun Valley girl? Oh well… I guess the same goes for me. Are we stupid or what? They must hate us now.. I met her on the Internet Didier… I also saw Crystal once at a tour at the winery. That must have been on the same day that I met Holly on the net… Nice girl too, very bubbly!
“Well, brother… That explains the note I found the other day on our doorstep. I was curious about this Chrystal …but she mentioned the winery.. I think… I think that note was meant for you initially..
I brought Crystal over here on our first date, I guess you could call it that. You were out. Probably hanging out with Holly?
Yes… Holly and I went to the museum… and ehh…enjoyed the art…
We kissed… I mean…hey…That’s what we French do right? We kiss. I miss her Didier…
“I know what you mean brother... I know we have not known them for very long, but I would like the chance to get to know them better. Do you think they will return?”
I guess we should do what we are supposed to do... How about we make a trip...? Go on a vacation?"
