The story is new but the characters are all very well known by those of you who have followed my previous stories.
My gratitude to all the creators of the cc I have used and a very special 'thanks' to Fredbrenny (she knows why).

The boys had gone to bed already and Cynthia cleaned the dishes. She was about to go to bed as well, when she saw the beautiful moonlit night sky through the kitchen window. She loved nights like this so she went outside and sat near her late husband’s grave. She was carried away by her memories. In her mind she was back on Lighthouse Island and felt the peace again she had known there for the first time in her life. It was there that she had found her peace of mind… thanks to Raphael. Since then, she always was aware of the presence of her late husband. She was thankful for their son Raph as well as for having adopted Risto.
Tomorrow would be Raph’s birthday. She couldn’t imagine that all those years had passed so quickly. Looking back it felt like 3 times a deep breath. Risto, her youngest had celebrated his birthday only a few months ago.
Raph was really looking forward to this birthday. He wanted to be as tall and good looking as his best friend, Mateo.
She thought about the picnic they had the other day at their pond and they had been talking about the coming events. Raph said that he wanted to invite Mat’s brother, Chessie, because he is Risto’s best friend. He admired Mat’s oldest brother and sister, who had come by boat, too. Perhaps they wanted to come as well to celebrate his birthday.
Cynthia had agreed to invite them all and had already planned to prepare a buffet. That’s much easier and people always will find something to their liking.
She stood up and went inside to go to bed. Tomorrow she would be very busy.
Very near Cynthia’s house and opposite the Hemmingway’s, Valdemar Hunter had bought a house to live there with Daisy. He had asked her to marry him and she accepted but wanted to wait until after the baby’s birth. They were looking forward so much for the baby.
Val understood that he couldn’t go on forever without working, so he started looking for a job finding one at the local newspaper where he unfortunately had to start right from the bottom.
As the doctor told Daisy it would be good to walk during these months, she got to know Sunset Valley quite well. Val had told her where she could find the boat on which they had arrived. His sister was still living on the boat and Val was sure that there was more than friendship between Jane and the captain. He had to laugh when Jane told him that Jeremy’s family name really was “Captain”. That surely was a coincidence. Anyway, Jane had asked Val why wouldn’t he bring Daisy in order to show her the boat and then she could meet Jeremy as well. But Val didn’t have good memories of his voyage and didn’t want to go there anymore. She walked to the small beach where Val had indicated that she would find the boat. Walking there she came across a man who couldn’t be but the captain. She stopped and asked him “Are you Jeremy Captain?” - “And you must be Daisy?” They had to laugh. “Well, that’s a coincidence that we should meet here…. I was just thinking about visiting Jane”. “Oh, but then you’re really fortunate that we met here; otherwise that long walk would have been in vain. She went to the theatre and will not be back before 8 o’clock. But if you want to, I can walk you to the boat”.
“No, that won’t be necessary; I will come back another time”.
“Well then… bye-bye” and Daisy went back home. She had walked a lot anyway and wanted to rest a bit. Shortly after, Val came home and saw she was tired. He told her to sit down. He would prepare something to eat. She smiled when she looked at him. She knew he wasn’t very much of a cook but the intention surely was nice. The dish was ready and without him seeing it, she improved it behind his back and she complimented him; more on his good will than on his cooking skills. Next day, she felt very uncomfortable and when Val told her that they were invited to Mattie’s friend’s birthday party, she asked him: “Would it be very rude if I stayed home? I don’t feel like doing much today.” Val said: “Don’t worry; I will go there for the both of us. Besides, you don’t know them yet.” He kissed her and went to the birthday party. The first visitors had already arrived. Jane had even brought Jeremy.
Raph was a bit nervous when his mother put the birthday cake on the table. They sang the ‘Happy Birthday Song’ and while making a lot of noise they encouraged him to blow out the candles. It took him a good while because he was thinking of making a good wish. He then took a deep breath and ffffffff.
Everybody was happy and Cynthia asked him what he had wished for. “No, I won’t tell you! It couldn’t come true if I did tell you!” Then it happened: he grew up and was just as big as his friend Mat. (That was what he had wished for). In spite of having eaten so much from the buffet, everybody took a piece of birthday cake. They were having a good time talking, playing the guitar, dancing…. When Jeremy Captain heard that their family name was Lightkeeper, he got very interested and asked Cynthia many questions about her late husband. In his opinion Raphael Lightkeeper was a very wise man and he owed him his peace of mind. He was spending such a long time talking with Cynthia that Jane got a bit nervous about it. She didn’t take her eyes off of them. Jeremy was also interested to know young Raphael better. They talked a while and Jeremy invited him to visit him on the boat. He told them that he had lived on Lighthouse Island himself. The party lasted until Cynthia noticed that Raph had eaten too much and had to throw up. It really was late when the visitors left and the boys had to go to school tomorrow.
This birthday party had been a big success and the following days Cynthia received various phone calls congratulating her on the perfect way she had organized it.
Jane had also called her to admire on her organization skills.
Jane herself would like to become such a good hostess. It was a pity that Daisy couldn’t come. She decided to pay her a visit and ask her how she was feeling. It shouldn’t be long before the baby was born. Daisy was very pleased with Jane’s visit. They were talking about the new house and the furniture Daisy wanted to buy when, all of a sudden, her face got that painful look. Jane got scared and said: “Come on Daisy, I’ll take you to hospital” and off they went. Daisy didn’t want Jane to drive. The contraction was over and she felt better now. She could drive the car herself but on the way to the hospital they had to stop a few times when she felt another contraction coming.
Once in the hospital, it didn’t take long before she went into labour and she gave birth to a precious little baby.
