The night went on and the two finally felt everything was okay with the world. Deanna had relaxed a bit as they filled boxes knowing they would be getting ready for the move though it was a complete move and the movers would be doing most of the packing. As soon as she had the keys in hand they would be moving all the stuff that day and the next. The question Max had was what to do with this house. Deanna shrugged and for the moment they would keep it.
Life was changing. She wanted to have a new beginning at their new house. She really didn’t want the things that had plagued her coming to find her in the new place. The lawyer had been a blessing and had kept the whole sale of the new house under wraps and he was the only one who knew the address. She was finally thinkin
Over the next few days everything seemed to move in slow motion for the couple. Though everything seemed fine and nothing was ever really happening except more boxes showed up and more and more of their belongs were in them. Between talking to each other and playing with the kids outside the two adults just needed to relax. When the phone rang for one of them both of them seemed to cringe a bit. However, no calls came in about the case against David and or any other new thing that was found about the Watson’s.Now the weekend was upon them and they were waiting on the group of Akechi’s that would be coming over to spend the day. Neither of them seemed to think they were different though they were the only ones who they had invited over. They were the same as them. They understood things that no one else seemed to want to
Max and Mitsuhide were outside watching over most of the kids. The youngest set of twins were still inside. Mitsuhide was watching Max closely. “So how bad was it?”“What?” Max asked surprised he looked at his friend.“”When she woke up. I know you said she glossed over it but.” Mitsuhide said. He knew how bad everything had really been that day. Though he understood why Max had to get the answers that way no one thought it would affect Deanna like it had. The reaction she had to try and leave wasn’t something he or Max could have seen coming. Nor was the one that she was in labor. Even after watching his own wife go into labor he didn’t see any of the signs in Deanna.
The couples settled into a nice rest of the day with no talk of the craziness of the families they came from. They all tended to the children that were playing in the yard or taking a nap somewhere on the patio or inside. Life for one day was good as Deanna sat back and thought of everything that she should be doing. Instead she was enjoying talking to the couple and learning more about them. She was for the first time really starting to enjoy herself and she knew she was feeling better because of the mindset she was in. That was when she knew she could really just be herself with them and they would not judge her even on a bad day.Max was watching closely as his wife was sitting there and her mask was coming off more and more. He loved to see her this way. It was the person
The next day they were getting the boxes ready for the first wave of things to be moved to the new house. Everything was set and they would be meeting in the morning with the lawyers who would have already bought the houses that were side by side. Deanna had thought about giving it to Mitsuhide and Kit well before she actually said it to Max. He knew that Mitsuhide would have his own issues with it but in the end he would accept it and they would have new neighbors. The thought of having a friend that close by was a god send to both men for the what if situations they knew they could run into with having so many little ones around. It would be good to have them close for that but also they would have each others back. Max still worried about David’s fans running about and that one of them could try to get to Deanna. Having Mitsuhide next door with his talents with a gun would be mind easing for h
Max ran his finger down her face as she looked up to him. “Yes.” He said softly. “Loni and her husband went to the hospital and got to spend some time with the boys. They wanted to know what was going to be needed for the two of them so they could set up the rooms for them. Deanna they will get all the love and attention they could ever need there. This is the best gift you could give to four people. Loni wanted you to know that she expects not wants you to be a part of the boys lives. You are their aunt and now cousin by marriage.”“Not another relation.” Deanna said. “I am just their aunt slash sister.”“Deanna everyone understands why you let go of them. It wasn’t because you didn’t love them or want them. It was that you wanted the best for them.” Max said as he gave her a squee
The next day began as a complete blur of activity for both Max and Deanna. The start of it was the company that she had hired to open the letters wanted them to come and pick up the money. It was reaching into hundreds of thousands of dollars at that point and they didn’t want it at the building any longer. Deanna called and would have an armored truck come transport it to the bank sometime today. That was an easy fix for everyone involved. They made it to the lawyers and Deanna went in to get the keys for the house. She was in there for a little longer than she had hoped as they needed to go over a few more things about the case against David. He had gone radio silent while he was in the hospital. They were afraid he was trying to figure out how to break out though the police were not going to let that happen. He was the mos
Deanna sat back and waited for Max to say something or do something but instead he was lost in his own thoughts. He seemed to be taking this harder than she was. The one thing she could think of was he had seen her sister in the glass coffin and she hadn’t. The thought of that being her at some point had become one of his greatest fears though she knew that wouldn’t have happened.He looked over to her and took her hand in his. “Deanna I don’t know what to say.”“Then don’t say anything.” She said to him, “Words don’t really matter right now. Nothing can undo what has been done. We do need to get to the house though. The movers are waiting.”“You still want to move today?” he asked somewhat surprised.“Am I supposed to gi
When the light of the day had faded Max and Deanna along with The Akechi’s stood on the porch waving off the group of men that had helped make the move and the unpacking go smooth. Mitsuhide and Max had disappeared for a bit of time and when they came back it seemed that Max could see straight again. Kit had pried the information out of Deanna as to why they both seemed like they were in a fog.“You know in the end it really is the best outcome. I understand that might be hard to hear but honestly it really is.” Kit said. “I had such a hard time accepting it when Randy used the bomb at the courthouse. I don’t think that many people should have been hurt or died because of the actions of a few but now I understand why he did it. He was ending the pain they caused but instead he caused more of his own.”“I get tha
