462 – Aging Round – 7

Old Kylian Lazlo passed away that fall.

8640

At least, it allowed for his son and his family to take over his apartment.

8641

Ruby aged to elder stage.

8642

8643

And for the first time in years, Jim Parsons took his car and his dog and went to see his handicapped son.

8644

His visit was totally unexpected by José Luis & Cie.

8645

José Luis was sitting in the living room with his son Oscar, trying to teach him how to talk.

8646

–          Mommy.

–          No: daddy. Daaaaa-ddy.

8647

–          Mommy.

–          You’re doing it on purpose, aren’t you?

8648

It was Evelyne who answered the doorbell. “Good afternoon, is Sacha in?”

8649

“You’re… his dad.”

8650

“Sacha, your mother passed away last night.”

8651

“Oh…”

8652

“I know she did you a lot of harm, and that I didn’t try anything to stop her. I’m sorry about this, and I’d like to see you a bit more before I too… have to go.”

8653

–          Erm, Evelyne, I don’t think we should stay. This should be a private conversation between Sacha and his father.

–          No! I want Evelyne to stay! You can go.

–          Huh, alright… I’ll be upstairs with my hands in a dirty diaper in case anyone needs me.

8654

–          Sacha, what do you think of your dad’s proposition so far?

–          I’ve always liked dad better than mom… So, huh… I’m glad I guess? Is that bad?

8655

“I think we can keep going.”

8656

Evelyne didn’t know it, but her own father would be encountering death very soon.

8657

But being a burial specialist, it was like meeting an old friend. “Don’t shake hands with him!” Christine despaired in the background. Ghost hunter wives are privileged to see their husbands’ last moments.

8658

Little Oscar became a child shortly after José Luis had finally managed to get him to say ‘daddy’.

8658a

8658b

And Amelia’s pregnant.

8658c

Johan’s happy face as she tells him.

8658d

“Here’s your tea, ma’am. But… there is something in the air tonight, isn’t it?”

8658e

“Oh, do you feel it too? The Council has chosen an heir for me.”
