Welcome back to the second chapter of my story about Lobsters and Salads, and the ingredients to use to make them the perfect dish on your table. I am talking about the ingredients of life.

Welcome back to the second chapter of my story about Lobsters and Salads, and the ingredients to use to make them the perfect dish on your table. I am talking about the ingredients of life. The Field boys were the sweetest sons a mother could wish for. And for any other mother with daughters they would make the perfect son’s in law. Courteous, helpful, smart and even good looking. Chester IV took after his mother, while Randolph and Cedric were the spitting image of their father. … Their father… who would now tend the garden and help Lauren out when and where ever he could. He was not such a bad guy… Most of his traits were to be traced back to his own mother and father and his upbringing. But that would be a whole different story… He paid for the bills and stayed at home. Painting, and taking care of the garden…

Chester brought home a girlfriend… Khadia… Now here the story is taking a turn more towards the future… Our present time… Khadia was here to stay… After a couple of weeks, Chester had his first whoohoo with Khadia… … and learned that this one night was not without consequences… Khadia was pregnant. Chester did as he felt was the right thing to do. It had also to do with his upbringing… He proposed… and Khadia said YES! Nine months later Khadia, now Mrs. Chester Field IV, gave birth to an heir: Chester Field V. This, my dear readers is my son in law… Sweet Chester… What’s that smell…uh oh…one of the ingredients has gone sour… While painting, Chester III felt a terrible pain in his chest and before he knew it, he passed away. Just as Grim was leading him the way to the after world, Lauren walked in… She never knew this was the moment that would be one of the most painful ones in her life. Lauren was heartbroken. Her husband, her Chester, the father of her children died. Chester Field III found his resting place to be in his favourite spot. In the garden maze, under the statue of Fortuna, goddess of fortune and the personification of luck… Next morning the family came down for one of Lauren’s perfect breakfasts. Her sons and grandson saw that Lauren had changed overnight. She had become an old woman with nothing to live for anymore. Chester, a doctor now, wanted to take his mom for a check up at the hospital. He didn’t feel good about the way she looked and acted. She kept on mumbling about the Ambrosia recipe. Lauren was devastated. She had lost her anchor in her life. The main ingredient to make things work. Be it that Chester was not the most loving man, he was still her husband and the only love she had known. She was so sorry she hadn’t been able to make him the food of life…Ambrosia. That same night Chester came to look for Lauren and told her she should not worry about him or the things to come… For the first time in her life, Chester told her: SORRY… Sorry for all the wrong I did to you. I know now… I know I should have shown you that I loved you… Lauren, will you forgive me? And Lauren chose to forgive Chester. Chester IV woke up... there was something not right. His brother Randolph had a friend over this evening, but there was something strange going on downstairs… At that moment he hadn’t noticed his father sitting in the chair waiting for him to wake up. Chester went downstairs and right there and then…Lauren died. Leaving Randolph’s friend in a shock. Lauren Field, beloved mother of three sons passed away. Randolph witnessed it all and he would never ever forget this moment in his life. Chester, Lauren’s husband was there too. Waiting for her to be with him again for eternity. But Lauren had to say goodbye to her sons first. Randolph she gave an extra hug and she told him not to feel sorry or guilty. She was at peace now, they could always come to her grave and talk to her. She promised she would visit every so often. Chester made her a promise. He would follow in her footsteps and swore the family would finally accomplish her wish…to make Ambrosia. The only problem was that the only one who could cook was Randolph, and none of the boys ever fished or helped in the garden before. Was it too late to learn? They didn’t know yet, but somehow, somewhere in time they would come to understand. Their road would be a long one to take... I have to work now. But after that I’m off for a couple of days. I’m working on a special dish… Ambrosia. There is more to tell in this story. There’s much more. I still haven’t gotten to the part about the lobster entering our salad family.
