Welcome back my dear, dear readers! In this chapter it’s all about ghosts and weddings and stuff. Chester met his dead grandmother Lauren. Chester, my sweet son in law to be... he grew up. And so did Jules. Chester was determined to get everything his grandmother said was needed for the Ambrosia dish. He was now a young adult and engaged to Jules. We all worked in the garden and planted life fruit, which we finally found in a small grocery shop run by an Egyptian guy. Chester and Jules would make the dream of Chester’s grandparents come true. Their pond was full of the desired death fish and finally, in a blue moon, the life plant came to bloom. Meanwhile I hired a new kitchen help … You’ve guessed right… Randolph Field now worked for me. I was going through some recipes. Just two more days till the wedding and the kids asked me to do some really nice Hors d’śuvres. Chester went over to his parents house….The Field Residence of course, and told his dad he was going to marry his true love, Jules. Dad was very pleased and told him he wouldn’t want to miss that day for the world! Who would’ve thought that in that very same night Chester Field IV plea bargained with Grim to at least have him attend his son’s wedding… Grim said …NO. Grim said it was his time. Jules asked me what special dishes I had come up with for the wedding. It would be a small ceremony with just some close friends and family. We were not aware of the drama that took place at the Field Residence … My plumb bob told me there was something going on. And a minute later I got a phone call from Khadia, telling me the awful news. She wanted to come over right away. I told them to take all the time they needed and Khadia insisted her son and Jules should commence with the wedding. It would be alright…Daddy had not want it any other way. So the next day the wedding took place. They were very happy, my child…all grown up now. Chester was happy. But he was also sad. His dad… But his uncles and cousins and brother… his mom…everyone came. They would have time to grieve. All the time they needed. Or so I thought. If Chester wasn’t already determined to get his grandparents back in his life, he certainly was now. He would now also do the same thing for his dad. Could he? Reading about it and hearing it from others reading forums on the internet was one thing. He just wasn’t sure if it would work in real life. The guests all left… and then… Lauren was there. I had never seen a ghost in my life! Not even Pete. Lauren introduced herself and I was instantly very fond of her. What a grand lady!

That night Lauren told me about their plan, and I was all excited about it. We talked about the Ambrosia recipe, and YES…I knew all about it. I could do it! Lauren just had to tell me when and where. She asked me just ONE thing… Could they all be buried here... in my garden? We had the Field family over. That means…their remains. They had to settle in and all was quiet on the ghost front for a while. And Chester had time to mourn his dead dad. Lauren startled me when out of the blue she was back. She loved our garden, she said, and now would be a perfect time to go ahead and make the mise en place for Ambrosia. The ghosts, Chester III and Chester IV and Lauren felt at home at our place. For a whole week they came out every single night to talk to me. Chester and Jules, still in their honeymoon, were not aware of these nightly visits, until one night, dad woke Chester up. “You have a fine family now, my son… and a lovely, lovely garden. I am so very proud of you!” Half an hour later Chester’s grandparents showed up. Lauren told him that very soon a miracle would take place. Jules was impressed by Chester’s story. Yes! A miracle would certainly happen! She told her husband she was pregnant! We were all thrilled! A new member to the family! I was going to be a grandmother! Chester told Jules there was also another miracle bound to take place. The one they had been working on now for a decade. We needed some more life fruit if we were going to wake up more dead people. So we had to wait a couple more months to harvest again. Lauren was taken away with Jules and the two women talked about gardening on many occasions. The pregnancy went on just perfect! Jules went to have her check ups and read all about there was to read about having babies. The ghosts still visited every night… Full of anticipation of a new life to arrive. Jules gave birth to a little Field girl. Juliette certainly was the most pretty baby in the world! “It’s time for your nap now little one…mommy has to help grandma to prepare for a miracle dinner. We have very special guests coming over tonight.” It was time. Time to prepare Ambrosia. It was somehow a sacred mission. Would it work? It would be a late dinner. I have to prepare… give me some time. I’ll be back soon with the next chapter.
