Welcome back!

In the last chapter we sort of re-introduced you to all family members. Barb and Fred are well known. But, for people who just started reading this series, and not familiar with the Collina and Ohinyan families, we recommend reading back. We do believe that this story can be enjoyed without having any knowledge of the previous. We just believe that for fully understanding you would need to know about where Fred and Barb come from.

Having said that, we would like you to just click away, read, enjoy and comment on chapter 2 of Double I do, where we left you with something Holly had to say...

[08:50 AM]
Fred and Sean’s house

Silence…
“I am going to have a baby. That’s what’s up. Planning is a bit off, but Sebas and I are really happy! I am 8 weeks now. Sebastian where are you?”

As Holly made her way to Sebastian you could hear a pin drop.
“Did I just hear she is expecting a baby? As in… B.A.B.Y?”
Fred was speechless. She looked at her sister as if she had just landed on another planet.

No one spoke.
“Fred, honey wait a second…” Sean gently moved Fred to his side. “Holly, baby… That is… that is WONDERFUL news! A Grandpa… I’m gonna be a Grandpa!” “Let me look at you!”

It dawned on Sean that he could not think of Sebastian anymore as “That boy…”
This young man was his daughter’s number one man in her life. Goodness! He couldn’t help it. Sean still saw his little girl under it all. Maybe just maybe he would stop and have a chat with Sebastian on the way to Nita’s.
Without saying anything he hugged Holly so tight she could hardly breathe, and could not feel anything but happiness. Thoughts of Freddy's new name flowed though her mind.

Grandma, Granny, Memaw, Mammaw, Nanna, Grandmother…oh dear..
“Sis? You OK?”

Fred had a hard time landing in the here and now. Her little baby, her girl… a mother? It seemed like yesterday she had her!

“Yes, Barb, uh, YES! Oh my goodness! Give me a minute!“
"I am going to be a great-aunty! Oh my dear! One of these days I might be a granny too! I can’t wait! I am happy for you Fred! I am happy for Holly and Sebastian! I… I am excited! Oh my goodness Fred… you know what this means? A baby shower!” Fred walked up to Holly and had a good look at her daughter. It was the first time she really had a good look at her daughter. Gone were all the “my innocent little girl” feelings. Here stood a grown up woman. Fred swallowed and sniffed and pulled Holly into a heartfelt hug. While Sean was struggling to find words and what to say to his son-in-law to be, the daddy of his first grandchild, Fred was sobbing.

“Mom!... It’s OK! It is just 8 weeks. I … I am not even nauseous in the mornings…much!”
“Let me get changed, and freshen up a bit. We need to head into town. Sebastian is going with dad and I need to talk to you about the dress. Crystal and I thought it would be ubercool to wear the dresses you wore at your wedding, you know… something OLD?” [9:50AM]

“Fred, we’re heading out now. Love you hon, and see you tonight. Oh my god wait till I tell Nita he's going to be a great Uncle”
“Ready Sebastian? You are coming with me right?”

“Yes Sir.”
“Mr Collina, you want to take my car? Looks like yours is blocked.”

“No, that’s OK. I suppose I’m going to teach you a thing or two about how to get cars out of your driveway when they are blocked in.”
“That was pretty sharp Mr Collina. I guess it takes special talent to do that.”

“Your damn right it does! Sebastian, we are going to stop at the overlook and have a little chat, if you don’t mind.”

“No sir, if you want to...”
Sebastian wondered when the moment might occur for the ‘talk’ to come around. It seemed this was it.
“Nice car Mr Collina.”

“Thanks, you can call me Sean, and speaking of cars, I would like to ask you a few questions about yours while we're at it. Here we are.”
“Mr Collina, I... I mean Sean. I should have asked this much sooner, but time just slipped away and I want to do this proper. May I sir, please have your daughter’s hand in marriage?” “Come, let's walk over there.” Looking out onto city, Sean had so much to say. He wasn’t sure he could say it all. In his mind he played it over and over.

“Beautiful isn’t it? From here all you can hear are the seagulls and the ocean beating against the earth.”

“Yes, Mr Collina... it is.”
“I’ll tell you straight up Sebastian. You are not to hurt or cause any harm what so ever to my daughter. You will not damage one single hair, nor utter anything other then good loving words out of your mouth. I’m not afraid to go to jail. Is that clear? I have lost my only son and will welcome you into our family just so long you take tender loving care of my only daughter and the baby not yet here. Which brings me to your car. How did you acquire such a vehicle? I want to meet your parents. There is time to get to you know better and that I will do son.” “Yes Sir, Mr... uh Sean. It is perfectly clear. I love your daughter with all my being and would never harm her in any way, form or fashion. My car, well it was a gift from my parents. They are not together at the moment. They divorced several years ago and we don’t hear from them often. Sometimes they are out of reach, but Sir I promise, we, Didier and I, will try to get them together for the wedding or maybe sooner. Mr Sean, please hear me... I do so give you my oath and honor that I will love your daughter and our baby to come with all my heart for as long as I live. You have my word.” For a long quiet moment Sean looked at Sebastian. Silent words transmitted themselves between them. It became clear to each of them that on this day truth and honor has been spoken and Sean felt his heart become full once again.

“Sebastian, yes you may have my daughters hand in marriage. When I walk with her down the aisle I will place her hand into yours. Now come on, let’s head to Nita’s we have a couple of bachelor party to plan. You know.. guy stuff.”
[10:00AM]

"Holly? Honey? About my old wedding dress…I’m not sure it would fit you, it might be too small for you. Even now with you not showing yet. Holly?"
"But mom, we can maybe get some lacy fabric and make it bigger."

"I don’t know sweetheart. The wedding will not be until November. That’s 3 months from now. Maybe we need to think of something else?"
"But Crystal will be wearing Barb’s dress mom… We thought we would look similar at this double wedding. How can I explain this…" "Well, unless Crystal was pregnant too sweetie, you would have been similar. But Crystal isn’t, and the front of the dress you really can’t alter, You know that you will be bigger in 3 months don’t you? We will think of something."

"Mom, I love you! You always think of something. I totally rely on you."
"I love you too, daughter! Now come… are you ready? We will start with the bakery, see what kind of cakes are out there and maybe if there’s time we’ll find a location for the wedding.” [11:00 AM]
Sweet Tooth Bakery, Bridgeport

"Mom! We are going to get the big wedding cakes! MOM! did you eat the last cookie?”

“Yum, these cookies were delish… I’m sorry Crystal did you not get one?”

"Chocolate or strawberry? Or strawberry with chocolate … how about chocolate with strawberries? Or Vanilla with molten chocolate fudge creme icing...”

“Barb, you hear them over there. How about we order the traditional cake for the wedding and have the others for the reception after?”

“Great! Then I think were done here.”

"Let’s go guys. I think we covered the cake!"
[03:00 PM]
Possible party location, Bridgeport

"Girls… I don’t know. The view is spectacular from here. But we want everyone to have a good look at you two. There is also a lot we need to do here to host a wedding."
"I know Fred. I couldn’t agree with you more. What if it rains?
Do we know someone with a truck to get tables, chairs, buffets and a band up here?"

"Barb… Let’s not even consider that. Let’s go downtown before it gets too dark."
"Holly… Would you look at them. Why do you think we came along today?"

"I don’t know Crystal… I just don’t know."
"What about Marine Fields Fred? They renovated it not too long ago."

"Might be an idea. Let’s go check it out! If we head out now, we may be there before it gets too dark. It feels like we are getting rain. Does it rain here?”
"Very nice… I MUST say. But I need to call the City council to do something about that billboard." “Looking at behinds at a wedding? I don’t know. Do you think we have time to plant a really big tree there?”

"I know you can unplug the lights… Hahaha. We just unplug it. No one will notice at the party. Come on Barb. All eyes will be looking at our daughters here."

“Can that be done Fred... unplug the lights? Wow… how do you do that?”
"Mom? I really like it here. It is very pink! I love it!" "OK… Fred? Let’s go! We need to make a few phone calls and make reservations for this park! Come on girls, I’ll make us some soup at home. Let’s sit down and write it all down. We need to-do-lists. Lots of them! Tomorrow the flower shop.”
[07:00 PM]
Search party heading home. Exhausted…

“You know Crystal, this is just going too easy.”
“Yeah I know mom, what’s up with that? Makes me a bit nervous. Since when has something been easy?”
"Fred? Get out some paper will you? And the magazines. We are in desperate need of a list, or lists."

"Sure! But I think we accomplished lots on this first day. Is it just me, or does the soup taste like cake?"
"It’s getting late. Crystal and I will head home and send your men back. What is keeping them this long."

"They are having fun most probably Barb. Just like us!"
"Mom? … Where is your wedding dress? I is not in the trunk upstairs. I was going to try it on. Not really sure about another dress. Crystal will be very disappointed when we dress differently." "Holly… PLEASE! Have you thought about your wedding at all? Have you thought about your body? … And how it will change during your pregnancy? Let’s try to not lose the big picture here. You have to think big… BIG in everything!" "I’ll think about it in my dreams tonight mom. It will be OK."

"OK? Oh well, sure! We will talk about it tomorrow, after the sugar intoxication of all this cake tasting wore off Holly. Now, let’s go to bed!"


Will everything be this easy? Just wait and see, and stay tuned for chapter 3!

I am sure Holly will look beautiful in whatever she wears \:D

orlov VIPSep 17, 2011

\:D Hey, Easy can happen. . .rarely does, but it <strong><em>Can</em></strong> ! The Marine Field is a perfectly beautiful spot for a wedding ( all of your sets are amazing to look at and make me want to go on an exhaustive CC hunt ) and I am sure the lights can be pulled on the Billboard. . .or it can be draped in tulle to match the color scheme. . .there is a color scheme, isn't there? Lists. . .someone mentioned lists. . .a very good Idea. . .I had a curious thought about the wedding dress. . .will see as the story goes on. . .9 is perfect and whatever name Fred may pick, she'll make a superb Grandmother. . Nana Fred sounds fine. . .and "does the soup taste like cake" is hilarious. . .something tells me all of this has gone a little too smoothly ( I feared for food poisoning after the bakery, hence the soup tastes like cake. . .but that would just be cruel. . .) glad Sean has come to terms with "that boy". . .well, for now. . .there might be something about the parents that could mess it up. . .but at least Sebastion has a name; always a good start!&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Congrats on the feature. . .\:D \:rah\: and where's the next Chapter?. . .
