Mitch would be willing to admit that he wasn't overly thrilled with the idea of his wife's old high school sweetheart moving in with them. He trusts his wife completely. It's Quinton he wasn't sure about. Men who have just been dumped by the women they love tend to do really stupid things. Things like go after another man's wife. Luckily all of Mitch's fears turned out to be unfounded.
Quinton quickly became the model house guest. He cleaned up after himself, helped with the kids if needed, stayed out of the way otherwise and insisted on paying rent. He even went so far as to ask before training on any of Mitch's equipment. It didn't take Mitch long to realize that Quinton was a heartbroken man just trying to get through each day. As time passed, Mitch even began helping Quinton learn the things he needed to know. Soon Quinton was promoted to Chef of Staff at the local hospital. It was his life long goal. Although he was very happy professionally, he personal life was in shambles. Quinton had no clue how to fix it.
Cephei has begun attending school. She's a smart girl. Her father helps her study as often as he can. Cephei isn't that thrilled about studying. She'd rather be out playing with her cousins or meeting new friends.
Neither Mitch or Baila have a hectic work life. They have both been spending more time at home to be with Cavan. The couple had discussed having another child but in the end decided against it. They weren't getting any younger. Maybe two kids is enough.
As the months passed, Cavan grew into a toddler. Like his older sister, he too is a Virgo. He is 10 neat, 3 outgoing, 9 active, 3 playful & 6 nice.
The kids get along very well. Cephei isn't at all jealous of her little brother. Instead she awaits his coming birthday. Then the fun really begins.
Baila and Mitch had a birthday party for their little boy. It is always fun to get together for happy occasions.
Cavan is now a child. He'll be starting school soon. He spent his party meeting people and playing red hand with his sister.
Quinton spent the party reconnecting with his only son Saber Tsang. His biggest regret in life is not marrying Rebecca when she was pregnant with Saber. Things may have turned out much differently if he hadn't been so obsessed with knowledge and promotions.
Well life is good at the Byall house. The kids are happy and healthy. Quinton is coming out of his shell. If only things could stay this way forever.
BTW, at some point in all this Cephei became a teen. Being the brilliant photographer that I am, I managed to get this lovely pic of her mom but none of her as a teen. Just know that Cephei is dedicating her life towards family. She wants to be Captain Hero which makes her mom very happy. I promise to sneak a picture of her in somewhere once I get around to taking it.
