When he figured out that Celine was pregnant on his birthday, Jensen was determined to make sure she did as little work as possible. He always did the dishes after dinner and made sure everything in the house was extremely clean. He even started taking care of baby Delsin more!
This pregnancy was much worse than the last one. Celine had constant morning sickness and back pains. She wasn’t even in her second trimester and she was already ready for the baby to come out!
Her pregnancy wasn’t all bad though. Soon it was time for Delsin to age up! Celine wasn’t ready to accept the fact that her first baby was already going to be a child though.
Celine: Can’t you just stay Mommys little boy a little while longer? I’m not ready for you to grow up yet!
Eventually Celine gave up trying to stop the inevitable and little Delsin grew up into a handsome little boy! He gained the Artistic Prodigy aspiration and the gained the Good trait.
Delsin was a very studious little boy. He always saw his parents working hard and he wanted to be just like them when he grew up. So as soon as he had his birthday he started working towards completing his aspiration and getting an A in school.
He did have one bad habit though. That was leaving his toys on the knee wall beside the stairs. If people hit the side of the wall just right when they were walking up the stairs they would be met with falling dinosaurs and superheros.
Jensen was at the station determined to figure out who this man was that was taking pictures of his relatives. He knew of course that paparazzi took photos but this was one lone man traveling alone and also trying to hide as he took pictures. What was his end game?
Jensen arrested a woman he thought was in connection with the man and grilled her for answers.
He forcefully pushed forward all his relatives that were coming in with the complaints about this man. So far it was Clementine Bloomer, Myles Belle, and Opal Rea.
Jensen: Do you know who these people are Ms. Lane? Or should I call you Debra?
Debra: Of course I know who these people are. They’re part of the Belle family, the richest people in town.
Jensen reclined in his chair and tapped his fingers on the metal table,
Jensen: Well if you know my family then you know that we don’t let anyone mess with us. I asked for your case specifically because I want answers. You were seen along with a man that was reportedly taking pictures of my family. I’ve called all the magazine companies in our area and none of them know a man by the description I was given.
Debra lifted up her chin defensively,
Debra: I don’t know who you’re talking about.
Well now it was time for Jensen to play the good cop routine,
Jensen: Listen, Debra, I’m just trying to make good by my family. I’m worried for their safety and I just need to know what is going on to protect them. You have kids, I know you do. How would you feel if someone was taking pictures of them?
Debra shifted nervously in her chair and glanced around the room,
Jensen: Just give me any information I can go off of. Please.
Debra: Fine. The guys name is Tony. I don’t know his last name and I’m not even sure if that’s his real name. He came to me when I was working in the diner and asked if I wanted to make some extra cash. I told him it depended and he told me to meet him at the park. That’s when I saw him taking pictures of that black haired lady. You said her name was Clementine Bloomer? Yea well he said he worked for some people that wanted information on your family and he said he needed my help on getting in the inside. He told me I needed to befriend the heir of the legacy and trying to get hired as the nanny. I told him I would think about it but then you arrested me before I could make a decision.
Jensen: Did he say who he worked for?
Debra: Nah he just said he was getting paid really good money and the people lived in a different country.
Jensen leaned back and thought for a moment. The Belles didn’t know anyone in any other countries. They hardly ever left Newcrest...who were these people?
Jensen didn’t release Debra, he charged her with stalking and put her in a jail cell to think about her actions. Now it was just time for him to try and research this Tony fellow and keep an eye on his entire family.
When he arrived home he was stressed out but heard excited talking coming from the living room. Jensen quickly grabbed a plate of food and headed in there, finding his wife and son talking animatedly to each other.
Delsin: And then the teacher almost got hit with a spit ball and we all almost got detention because of him!
Celine: Wow! I don’t think me or your father would have accepted you going to detention because of some evil little kid.
Delsin threw his arms up in the air,
Delsin: I know right?! And then we got to play with some toys and someone brought in this cool rocket ship!
For the next hour or so Delsin told his tales of the classroom as his doting parents just smiled and listened to him ramble on and on. Celine never had a parent to sit down and talk with like this so it was nice to be there for her son every day when he got home.
Celine finished her dinner first and had to excuse herself so she could go lay down. This pregnancy was not letting up! So Delsin was left with his father and he scooted closer to him on the sofa.
Delsin: So Dad, what’s it like to arrest all the big bad criminals?!
Jensen: It’s awesome! I sometimes feel like a superhero or something. Plus I can make everybody safe and that always makes me happy.
Delsin: Do you ever have to kick anyones butt?
Jensen laughed nervously and massaged the back of his neck,
Jensen: If they are really really bad guys and don’t want to come with me and are mean, sometimes I have to.
Delsin looked up at his Dad with big glistening eyes. When Jensen looked into them he felt like his son thought he could do anything in the world. His heart melted a little bit because he wished that he could stay that way in his son's eyes forever.
The next day Delsin was so excited! He was finally going to be able to go over to his friends house and play, although it was going to be at night time because Celine didn’t get off work until later.
Delsin snarfed down the last little bit of his cake and ran upstairs to get his shoes on. This was going to be his first adventure!
When they arrived at the Casper house, Celine decided to catch up with Lucas on everything that was happening with him. Delsin on the other hand was trying to make Amber happy. He didn’t want to admit it to anyone but he had the biggest crush on her. In his eyes she was the cutest girl he had ever met.
Amber Casper was an outgoing little girl and always wanted to get her way. When she had first met Delsin in class all she had to do was bat her long dark eyelashes and he was wrapped around her little finger. She knew that if she told him to jump he would ask how high. He was completely head over heels, in puppy dog love with her. Sometimes Amber would use that to her advantage. Her Mom and Dad always said she was older than her years and it showed when she was trying to bribe Delsin. She would cry crocodile tears if she wanted his cookie, or she would pretend someone would hurt her feelings and she would watch with glee as Delsin puffed out his little chest and would yell at the accused bully.
When Celine had come home a couple hours later she sent Delsin to bed and went to her room and sat on the edge of the bed. She realized how easily Amber could manipulate Delsin and it worried her. He was such an impressionable little boy and she didn’t want to say who he could be friends with but she just didn’t like that little girl.
Jensen walked out of the bathroom and smiled at her as he sat down,
Jensen: What’s up baby? You okay?
Celine: It’s just that little girl Delsin was hanging out with...I don’t like her.
Jensen: She’s just a little girl! What’s so bad about her?
Celine: She can get him to do anything! She just has to pretend like she’s about to cry or get upset and he drops everything to go to her!
Jensen: Well….if you have a problem with it just tell him to stop hanging out with her. You are the Mom, you can do that.
Celine: I don’t want to be THAT Mom though…
Jensen sighed and started to massage his wife’s shoulders. It was her third trimester and he felt like she was just over exaggerating things because of the pregnancy hormones and all.
Jensen: He’ll be fine sweetheart. Let’s just lay down and go to bed so you’ll stop being stressed out.
That didn’t actually work considering Celine went into labor in the wee hours of the morning!
As quick as she could she hobbled upstairs to the nursery and tried to be as quiet as possible while delivering the baby. It didn’t really work out though considering how much it hurt. Eventually she ended up waking up the whole house and she heard Jensen and Delsin talking to each other outside the nursery door.
Finally it was over! Celine and Jensen welcomed in the last addition to the Belle family, a beautiful little girl named Harley!
Of course I got the name Harley from Harley Quinn in the Batman series, if anyone didn’t catch it already!
Celine was thankful that, this was her last child. She didn’t think she could go through another pregnancy. Before she could even get her bearings Delsin burst into the room to meet his new little sister. While Delsin was cooing over her and talking excitedly Celine and Jensen were just staring into each others eyes, smiling.
