he would never marry

Roger had no idea he'd feel this way, but he did. He really did love babies. All these endorphins had gone off inside him, and it was amazing.

He held Ellie's baby careful. He couldn't help but admire the tender infant and everything that went with it. As it was, he was here with Rosie who was playing blocks with Charlie. Roger kept smiling at baby Zoe as if  it were some gut reaction to send out as much positive energy as he could. It was on the tip of his tongue..I want one.

But Ellie had her mind elsewhere. The attic, that Lon was determined to fix up for his daughter Hannah.

"Well, that's just crazy." Roger looked up at Ellie as if he'd be her number one cheerleader, always on Ellie's side. He was ready to start a LETS HATE LON LOVE club.

"I don't mean to bitch about it." She wasn't exactly in a huff, yet again, he couldn't remember when he'd heard his friend even imagine the word bitch.

"He really needs to rethink this. Let this, with Hannah run its course. I bet she'll be back with her Mom by summer." Roger thought that was the perfect thing to say. He was still eying the sleeping baby. He wasn't talking too loud because he wouldn't dare wake the baby.

"That's what I said." Ellie was unloading the dishwasher. She went to check on the kids in the livingroom. Finally, the kids came to the kitchen table so they could have some watered down juice and cheerios.

"So how does Lon feel about Zoe?" He wanted to know.

"Great." Ellie smiled. "He's great with her."

He would, thought Roger. Yes, he still wasn't sold on Lon. Deep down in this dream that never went completely away...Some day, Lon would leave her, high and dry..and who would pick up the pieces? Well, Roger would. Of course.

Roger is in some other orbit here. I wonder if he'll do something crazy.

Maybe Roger shouldn't wait for things to go wrong.

Roger is kind of getting weird.

Roger might be on the down spiral of things.

Welcome the goddess of the moon and the night,
Bless us with wisdom, bless us with might.
Give us tonight, the power to heal,
The power to release the magick so real.

...thanks!...lovely girl!

I love the fact that Roger can be so caring. Does the "Lets Hate Lon Love" club require an application or can anyone join :P I hope that Lon doesn't leave her. Roger would be stuck with a lot, and who knows what ellie will be like.


Let's see how this turns out....
