It had been a couple weeks since the birth of Delsin and today was a very special day. Today was Jensen's adult birthday! They had been trying for another kid for a while now, but to no avail. At least that’s what Jensen thought.
Jensen: *gasp* A PINK CAKE?! HOW ABSURD.
Celine smiled and shook her head to herself as she poured the last little bit of vanilla into the cake mix.
Celine: Yes pink. Strawberry cake is the family favorite and you said you didn’t care what color it was.
Jensen: *mumbles* Well I didn’t want it to be pink…
A little sad, Jensen walked into the hallway to greet the guests that were now arriving. Before he could say hi to the rest of them though, Jax had grabbed his arm and roughly pulled him aside.
Jensen: What the plum, Jax?!
Jax: Dude please, I need your help!
Jensen: What’s wrong? Did something bad happen?
Jax massaged the nape of his neck and sighed,
Jax: I guess you could say that…
Jensen: Well spit it out!
Jax: Elisa wants a baby, man!
Jensen: Why is that such a bad thing?
Jax: I never wanted kids! I thought she would be fine with not having kids since she grew up in an orphanage and all, but noooo she wants kids! At least one.
Jensen: Well you’re still a young adult you have time. Don’t sweat it. I know you want to further your career just like Celine wants too.
Jax: No man that’s not it. I just really don’t want kids! I don’t know how I’m going to break it to her...Do you think she’ll leave me when I tell her that I don’t want to have kids?
Jensen grabbed Jax by the shoulders and turned him around so he could look him in the eyes.
Jensen: That woman loves you. I have no doubt about that. I don’t think that she’ll leave you. You just have to explain to her, in a nice way, why you don’t want to have kids.
Jensen gave him a friendly slap on the back,
Jensen: Now come on, let’s go get a drink.
While the boys were drinking Celine was in the kitchen helping Meilin. As usual Celine hired Meilin to be the chef for the party. After her wedding she didn’t trust anyone else to cook food!
Yet the real reason Celine was talking to her was because she just found out some deliciously juicy news that made her squeal!
Celine: You’re pregnant?!
Meilin: Yep! I know I’m not showing but that’s because the doctor says I’m so skinny and he thinks that the baby is laying way back there.
Celine: But..but Meilin you're not even married to my brother!
Meilin shrugged her shoulders and continued to chop the lettuce she was working on for a salad,
Meilin: I don’t really think I want to get married. I mean when I was younger plum yea I would have loved to get married, but now I just don’t...I just don’t want to! We already decided that our kids are going to share our name that way they both have a little piece of us with them.
Celine walked over and squeezed Meilin’s shoulder. She didn’t quite understand why she wanted to have kids with someone but not get married to them, even though she knew that she loved them, but it was her own life.
Celine: Have you thought of a name for her or him?
Meilin: Well if it’s going to be a girl we want to name her Hazel Ikeda-Belle and if it’s a boy we want to name him Jackson Ikeda-Belle.
After their conversation had ended Meilin had gotten to work on a salad and a beautiful roast chicken. Once it was complete Celine called everyone into the dining room for dinner and then she had to go hunt down Jensen, who ended up being asleep in the bedroom.
Celine: I hope everyone enjoys the food! Meilin is an amazing cook, she cooked for my wedding and I think she’ll cook for the rest of the Belle parties from here on out! Also once that birthday boy gets in here, I have some exciting news to share!
Meilin: Awww Celine! You’re too nice to me!
Meanwhile Rowan was clacking her nails on the table while glaring at Orion and all of the sudden she pulled him down into the chair,
Rowan: Now you listen to me! Don’t you go making eyes at Isabella, she’s a married woman and almost twice your age!
Orion: I’m sorry baby, I didn’t mean to! You’ve got it all wrong!
Finally the birthday boy decided to grace us all with his presence and just as he was blowing out his candles Celine decided to announce the big news.
Celine: Everyone, I’m pregnant again!
Jensen just blew out his candles and he inhaled so hard with surprise that he ended up inhaling a whole puff of candle smoke, which made him start coughing!
Jensen: Are *cough* you serious? *cough*cough*
Celine: Mhmmm, we’re gonna have another baby!
A chorus of squeals and claps could be heard throughout the room along with a couple groans. Celine and Jensen didn’t care though, all they could do was stare into each others eyes and smile.
