It wasn’t long after the quads were born that they all received dolls in mail. Having had one of these toys myself when I was a child I was happy enough to let the babies play with theirs.
The toddlers immediately fell in love with their own special toy.
The girl’s doll were identical something that I found a little creepy.
The weather outside had made it a perfect time for training the toddlers. Only Eliya and Mika and their need to be outside, braved the weather for any significant amount of time.
Mika had been busy trying out every type of wish she could think off, so far she hasn’t tried wishing for love.
Hopefully she won’t try that particular wish out. The last thing we need is another potential Zombie boyfriend stalking the house.
Inside the house the Quads had been busy learning their way around the nursery.
Little Joslyn has taken a liking to the toy car from the toy box.
Both of the older girls have been wonderful with their little brother and sisters.
Especially Eliya who has taken every opportunity to help out with their training.
She is always in the nursery taking care of her little brothers and sisters.
I had thought Grandma would be leaving after our trip to Riverview, at least that was what she had told me she was going to do. Not that I mind that she is still here, far from it but the sudden change in plans had me a little concerned.
It was nice to have everyone together. Sometimes it seemed like the entire family was in the nursery.
That’s where when the unexpected happened. At least, it was something that I haden’t been expecting. My Grandma showed little reaction like she had been waiting for it to happen.
It was then that I finally realised why she had stayed and I felt a little stupid for not putting it together earlier.
“It’s time”, she said softly.
“No..it can’t be.”, I sobbed.
“Yes, I know you understand. Anything you were unsure of before will soon become clear”, Lindsay continued to speak to me.
“Lucia, you are my true heir and it is your job to look after our family and to support your heir when the time comes.”
“It’s time for me to go, but remember I love you. I always have, even before you were born”, she told me. “Lucia, I’ll never truly be gone.”
“I love you too” I finally managed to answer.
“Girls, take care of your mum for me, okay?” she told Mika and Eliya, before looking towards the figure who had entered the room. “I’m ready”
Lucia took her grandmother’s death hard. At first I thought she was going to be okay.
I soon realised she was just going through the motions and even then I could tell it wasn’t working.
I tried everything I could think of to help her but nothing I tried was working. Even the girls tried, and tried some of their fairy magic to help her but it only ever worked temporarily.
When she took to spending most of the day beside her grandmother’s grave I knew she needed help.
I needed help.
