The reception is going to be in small short episodes. I will post another tomorrow evening. I would have liked to do it all in one shot but I have been busy with a lot of other stuff as well. They say multi-tasking is bad for you but I can't function if I'm not keeping busy! lol!
We start off with Aric and Roxie, they are both in their element, they love to work in their bar. So when they had the opportunity to throw this wedding reception they took it. Plus, they really wanted to do something nice for Luke and Laura.
*Aric* "Everything running smooth in the kitchen."
*Roxie* "Yup! How about you?"
*Aric* "I'm good...."
In one of the booths Krystal sits with Mrs. Cherry Jackson,
while Sable takes their order.
*Cherry* "I'll take a salad..."
*Sable* "Okay....anything else I can get ya?"
Krystal continues to look over the menu,
she can't decide what to get.
Across the room at another booth sits the Lavigne's andKrystal's brother Kyle and his wife Vanessa. They are Amari's parents.
*Vanessa* "I'm sorry we missed the ceremony. These damn airlines can never keep a plane on schedule anymore...."
*Krystal* "It's quite alright, I'm sure the girls will be happy to see you...."
*Vanessa* "Yes, It's been such a long time since we got together...."
In the back of the bar all young folk hangout. Peter and Shaun have struck up a game of pool. While Isolde and James watch them play. Amari and Brooklyn sit quietly sipping some cocktails, Aric fixed up for them on their way in...
Hannah is bringing some beers for the rest of them. She struts into the back room, her boots clapping against the wood floor,and Peter watching her every move. She made sure to dress extra sexy, she knew he was gonna be here. Despite what went down a few months ago, she still has the hots for Peter.
*Peter* "Hey, Hannah....you look pretty tonight."
*Hannah* "Thanks, Peter.....
While Peter flirts with Hannah, Amari cannot stop
looking in Shaun's direction.
Brooklyn waves her hand in front of her to
break her trance.
*Brooklyn* "Hello!! Earth to Amari! Hey snap out of it!"
*Amari* "Damn! He is fine....but so familiar....where have I seen him?"
While everyone is getting settled in a few more finally make their way to Bull Tavern.
*Benjamin* "I can't believe how much sh*t you gotta take around
with you for one teeny tiny baby!"
*Luke* "Tell me about....It took us like an hour to just get out the door the
first time we took him somewhere."
*Laura* "Did she say she was coming to the reception?"
*Michelle* "Sort of. I just said we would talk later....she said okay."
So they all head inside to see who is here. Luke and Laura stop to say hello to Laura's family first to show off baby Phoenix.
*Vanessa* "Oh, he is just adorable! How many months is he now?"
*Laura* "Thanks, he's 3 months....."
*Vanessa* "Amari, told me the ceremony was lovely, I'm sorry we missed it, but our flight got delayed."
*Laura* "It's okay....I'm glad ya'll still made it safely."
*Kyle* "Nice to finally put a face to man who married my niece...Cogratulations."
*Luke* "Thanks....It's nice to meet you as well...."
While Luke and Laura, mingle. Michelle and Benjamin still linger by the door in each others arms.
*Benjamin* "Where you wanna sit, Darlin'?"
*Michelle* "That last booth would be nice."
Then the last and final guest arrives...
She walks along the sidewalk glancing through the window.
Then makes her way through
Running into Benjamin and Michelle.
*Michelle* "Hey, Penelope....We're gonna get a drink, you want one?"
To be continued tomorrow!!!
