Welcome to a new Fred & Barb story!
Put your tissues away, they won't be needed here. Wedding bells are ringing, Fred and Barb are buzzing and the chaos is growing.

[7:30 PM]
Fred and Barb’s downtown office.

“You DID bring the key didn’t you?
Erhhhh… YES! Yes, yes! It’s here… I have it here!“
“Where is YOUR key Barb?” “Home.” “But, oh well… You are right. Maybe we need a potted plant here, so we can hide an extra key.”

“Shhhhhh Barb, don’t say that too loud, everyone in the world will know!”
“Let’s not worry. You have one on you right now, so let’s go in.” “I am going to bake a pie Fred… Going to take it home. Kids are coming over.” “Barb, we just got here. We need to clean the place, and start writing the new story!” “I know… I know. Just let me bake this pie. We will have time. I cleaned out the bedrooms, in case you want to spend the night.” “Oh goody… I just might and get started on the story. Now, what’s for dinner?” “Barb?”

“…There’s leftovers in the fridge Fred.”
“Weddings from hell… GREAT show Barb! Let’s watch this, so that we know how to NOT do it.” “Fred… let’s make a list of things to do. The girls need us now.” “And, well… we need to get ourselves occupied. I AM SOOOO EXCITED... aren’t I?”
“…I am. Really I am. Right?” “God yes Barb, of course you are.
So I am…
… I miss Rowan.”
“Fred? Sis? Are you OK?”

“Yes hon. Just having a wee bit of a moment here.”

“He would have been almost 20 now, you know.
What’s that smell?”

"Oh sorry sis ... MY PIE!"
“Sean still has his quiet moments. Those are the times I cannot reach him.” “Fred, if you want me to stay… I will stay… we can talk.” “No Barb, it's OK. Kids want to eat the pie you baked.
I’ll be fine. Need to clean them windows here too. I will stay here and see you in the morning at our place. I will drive back early. OK? “

“Ok sis... I love ya. I’m heading out now. See you tomorrow”
[11:30 PM]
Barb and Nita’s house.

Arriving home Barb could hear the music out back. She knew by the sound of it the kids were there. Barb’s lucky she didn’t spill the pie on the way home.
“Hi everybody! I hope ya'll are hungry. I brought pie. Have you guys been home long?” "Hi honey, kids just showed up an hour ago.”

“Good! Well, just don’t stand there! Come grab a slice!”
“Got anything done at the office Barb?”

“Well, I baked the pie! Come sit and eat! Fred is staying downtown tonight. She needs this time to herself now. We will have to go in every day from now on, and that will be the first time again after Rowan’s passing. Believe it or not, she was about to clean the windows. Therapeutic task if you ask me.”
“But she is doing OK right?”

“Yes, she is. I am not worried. Crystal honey… you and me… tomorrow morning, Fred is expecting us. We need to sit down and get this Big Show on the road. Summer, would you like to join us tomorrow?”

“Thanks for the invitation Barb, but no. I have a school function with my class tomorrow."
“Oh sure! What time? Mom that was delish! Thanks. It’s OK Mike. Sit down with Summer, I got this brother." “Didier, it’s good honey, I got this, you sit and relax. I’m so excited, aren’t you? How many guests should we invite? Chocolate cake or vanilla, or maybe Red Velvet?
Red flowers, maybe pink or blue, what kind would you like? I know... roses, maybe irises...”

“Crystal, sweetie, please... This is exactly why we need to sit down with Fred and Holly. We really need to organize this”
“Mom, Summer and I will drop by Aunt Freddy and Uncle Sean later tomorrow night. We have been so busy lately with work and my Tavern. We can’t get out much it seems.” “Honey, I think they would really like that. They are fine and doing well. We miss you. You need to visit more often… Mike… honey… you know it’s OK to get yourself another motorcycle don’t you…”

“I don’t know mom. Maybe in another year or two, right now Summer and I really enjoy that big green mean machine, So mom, when’s Crystal’s big day? Have they set a date yet? She and cousin Holly really are going to have the wedding together?
“Didier, did you get a hold of your parents yet?”

“I ...., not yet, I will talk to Sebastian tomorrow. After their divorce they haven’t been anywhere together.”

"I would really love to have them here, both of them. I hope it is not going to be a problem.”

"Me too baby, Sebas and I will do what we can to get them here."
[08:00 AM]
Fred and Sean's house

“Morning hon, drink your coffee. It’s getting cold.”
“Holly and Sebastian are coming by this morning. You know, wedding stuff. Barb and Crystal are coming over too. You want some pancakes? “

“Sure, I love your pancakes. But I think after breakfast I’ll go see Nita. Maybe that boy wants to come with me so you girls can do the girls’ stuff. Nita and I will talk to the boys about the important things.”

“What could be more important than your daughters wedding? And that boy has a name, Sebastian! Want some more coffee?"
“Well Sebastian, we’re here. How in the world are we going to tell mom and dad?”

“Baby, don’t worry so much. The right time will present itself soon enough. You will see, everything is going to be alright.”
“Holly and that boy just drove up …Wow, honey you should see his car. Where do you suppose he got the money for a car like that? Maybe I should get to know the man who is going to marry my daughter a little bit better. And we have yet to meet his parents. Maybe we should call them up for a chit chat."

"Yes, Sean why don't you do just that, more coffee?."

“ Hi mom! Hi dad! How are you two this morning? Crystal coming? Coffee smells wonderful mom, thanks.” “Yes they should be here soon. How are you feeling sweetie? You look somewhat pale-ish”

*choking on her coffee* “G----Grrreat mom… Why do you ask?”

"Just checking sweetie, you seem a little different. Are you sure you're ok?"

"Yes, yes mom, no worries."
"I'm going to start the cakes now. Barb and Crystal should be here any moment now." “Wow mom, look… Sebastians' car. You should get a new car mom. You’ve had this one forever, you look like an old person.”

“Hey…I do not look like an old person, and I like my car! It runs great after all these years.”
“Hey everybody… Mornin’ sis. Pancakes for breakfast. Yum! Now sis don’t burn them…
Holly, let me look at you! And Sebastian. It’s been some time! You two are looking great. Holly there is something different about you?”

“Hi Aunt Barb... No, it’s just the same ol me.”
Barb was ready to go. A lot had to be done.

“I made a list. I suggest we first check out the different flower shops in town. I hear the new one, the one close to Market street has beautiful arrangements. And then we need to pick out cakes! Oh… and we need to…”

"Barb, slow down sis have some breakfast first. Fuel for the body."
“We need to tell your parents cherie. “

“I know, I… I… don’t know if this is a good time.”
"Breakfast is ready! Come and eat.
Holly?! Come grab a plate. What’s up? Are you not feeling well?”
“I’m fine mom, really I am. I’m just not real hungry for breakfast right now.”

“What’s that look on your face? You are chewing on something. Now tell mom. I can tell something is up.”
"You want to know what's up? I'll tell you what's up...

Stay tuned for chapter 2

\:wub\: \:wub\: Oh, a whole new series for me to get lost in. . .heaven! *********(sparkles)!!!! What a great start; secrets, stress, conflict and way beautiful screens. . .and a cliff-hanger ending. . .perfection! I am hugely amused that anyone would take on a double wedding, hard enough to get one bride to make a decision without a few meltdowns. . .can't wait to see how one manages two. . .Thanks heaps and heaps for writing this! I just LOVE a good soap opera and you two know how to do it!

It was good, I just didn't like all the "sis, bro, hun, barb barb barb, well fred, well barb". I'm kind of confused on the entire plot actually but I'll stay tuned for chapter 2 to see if it makes more sense. What was with Fred needing to write a story, and so much effort in your pie plot, I got really confused. All in all good effort!

Congrats on the feature \:rah\: I love how simple it is .. so much to do, and so little time. I wonder what's the secret, spill soon \:D I'm glad Barb and Fred found their keys \;\) Can't wait for more \:wub\:

#23RatRaceRobSep 16, 2011

Lol... likely this is already answered in the next chapter-- which, as I am sooo behind on my reading, happens to be out-- but my guess is... the girl is preggers \;\).  Great to see the sisters back in action and on the lighter side with all the wedding planning!  \:wub\: Now, I'm off to see if my guess was correct... :P
