Just a short trip across town and the Fuller Family pulled up to their new house. It was beautiful, just as Jenni imagined. Her favorite part was the garden, placed right out front. It fit so nicely. She really couldn't wait to start her own plants growing.
Jenni, Hayden and Isabel piled out of the car and went into their new home. Jenni's room was the only one downstairs, she liked that she didn't have to go up the stairs to get to her room. Jenni unpacked all of her things. Hayden and Isabel went to the second floor to inspect the boys' rooms and their own, also unpack all of their things.
The triplets had been at school during the move and came home to a new house. From what they were told of the new house though, it was a lot bigger. That made them happy because it seemed like there would be more room to get away from the parents. In the old house, each time they went to do something on their own there seemed to be an adult there too, because there was no where else to go.
James stayed after school to clean some bug cages, and Charlie stayed to help. Cedric came right home and sat down eat a piece of cake then do his homework. Jenni practiced on the piano they had purchased just that morning, before moving in. She had always wanted a piano just never had the room for it. Now they do. Hayden joined Cedric at the table with his own leftover cake.
"How do you like the new house son?" Hayden inquired.
Cedric shrugged. "I haven't had much time to look around, or even lay claim to my room yet. I was hungry when I got home, and now I'm doing homework. So far it's nice though a lot of room to run around." He told his father.
Hayden laughed. "There will be no running inside, you take that game of tag outdoors, you boys have a big yard to play in now."
Hayden finished his cake and left the table. Cedric was to tired to think about playing tag. Just then James and Charlie came home. Hayden was passing by again and told them to do their homework before getting into anything else. They did as they were told. Each one of them were too tired to complain. After homework they went upstairs to join their brother and play some video games until bedtime.
The first night in the house Hayden couldn't sleep well. He happened to be awake at one point and spotted a burglar sneaking across the front porch. Before she even made it inside to consider stealing anything Hayden confronted her and changed her mind. He was not too rough, but got his point across that she picked the wrong house. She gave up and ran off.
Before he went back to bed, Hayden installed an alarm system. Although he could handle a robber if he were here, Hayden worked a lot of nights, so he wanted his family to be safe even if he wasn't here.
The next morning, completely unaware of the nights activities, Jenni woke before the sun was up and went straight out to her garden. She worked in it, planting and watering, until the sun was coming up. Knowing the boys would be up soon, she went in washed up and made everyone a pancake breakfast.
Shortly after the triplets left for school Kenya and Chase came over to see the new house. Jenni talked to them outside, and showed them around the yard first. Afterward, Jenni gave them a tour of the inside. Kenya fell in love with the piano as soon as she set her eyes on it.
Hayden had gotten up and eaten his breakfast. He came down and said hello to Chase and Kenya and offered them something to eat. They accepted and went and got a plate of pancakes as well, Jenni joined them.
Hayden thought it a good time to go and put a fire in the fireplace. Though after lighting it, he stared at it for a moment, he couldn't resist the urge to play with it for a while before going back upstairs to wake his wife and work out for a little while.
While they were eating Kenya couldn't keep her eyes off of the piano. After she was done, that was the first thing she did. She started to play, even though she had never played before. Chase stood and watched his wife. All of a sudden they both heard Jenni scream.
There had been a carpet in front of the fireplace that shouldn't have been there. It caught on fire. The flames were getting really big, really quickly. Jenni had called the fire department already and they were on their way, but it didn't seem quick enough.
Finally the truck pulled up and the man ran inside. He put out the fire rather quickly and stayed for a moment to warn Jenni to be a little more careful next time, also not to place any highly flammable items close by. Kenya went back to the piano, and Chase followed.
Jenni and the firefighter stood talking for a little while. Soon enough Jenni was asking about the man himself, as opposed to talking about his job, fire. They talked for over an hour.
Then something came over Jenni, and she started flirting with him. She didn't even know this man's name yet, and she was complimenting him, and dropping pick up lines. He seemed to respond in kind though. Jenni realized what she was doing and quickly said goodbye to him. Not before giving him a very warm hug though. He promised he would call her, and left. Jenni stood for a minute alone, thinking about what just happened. Should she answer when he does call her? After all he was half her age, at least. When her phone rang, Jenni jumped. "No way, it can't be him already." She said to herself and picked up the call.
It was Crystal, she was inviting Jenni over for a few minutes. Jenni accepted and told Kenya and Chase to feel free to stay and look around.
Jenni talked with her granddaughter for a while. When she asked how Crystal was doing, overall, Crystal started going off about her life. She talked about kids, and not knowing if she actually wanted any. Also the fact that she doesn't even have a boyfriend, nor any good suspects. She didn't seem to like any of the guys here. She loved her new house, though it needs a make over. Crystal told her grandmother everything. Then glancing at the clock Crystal said that she was going to get to bed. She hugged Jenni and kissed her goodbye. As Jenni was leaving she ran into Damien.
He said that he was just coming to visit. Jenni informed him that Crystal was in bed now. Jenni and her son stood on Crystals porch and talked. Even though Jenni wanted to go home and get to bed herself, she couldn't resist talking to her family. She loved them and missed them dearly. She has thought about inviting them back to live with her, but knows they would not.
Jenni finally gave in to her sleepiness and said goodbye to Damien. When she pulled into her new home, with garage, she just stared at it for a moment. She thought then of everything that had happened in her life. Her bad times, then meeting Alan. He made her life perfect. She was so happy now, and it was all because of Alan. She thanked her late husband quietly. "I wouldn't be here if it weren't for you, I love you honey, and miss you. Maybe I'll be with you soon."
