The townhouse is finished (well, close enough) and Thomas and Camille are celebrating with a small potluck dinner. The guests include Camille’s younger sister, Grace and her husband, Darren and their son, Julian plus close friends Matt and Amber and their twin daughters, Macee and Makenna.
Go ahead and put everything out. (Camille)
Serena, I want you and Tommy to put away your toys. Your cousin and friends will be here soon. (Camille)
Mom, Tommy doesn’t help when I ask him to clean up. (Serena)
You have to sing the clean-up song. Trust me…it works. It’s how I taught you to clean up when you were his age. (Camille)
Clean up, clean up, everybody everywhere. Clean up, clean up, everybody do your share. (Serena, singing)
Tommy starts picking up his toys, and Camille smiles and then turns to leave.
Camille checks her make-up in the bathroom mirror before heading back downstairs.
Grace, Darren, and Julian have arrived.
The place looks great! I’ve been thinking of redoing our living room. Did you use a decorator? (Grace)
Yes, and she was fabulous. I’ll give you her card. (Camille)
There’s a knock at the door. Thomas welcomes Matt, Amber, and the twins into the townhouse.
Hi, everybody! Congrats on the new house, you guys! The place looks awesome. Let me put the salad and bread down, and then I want a tour. Oh, and I brought dessert, too. (Amber)
You baked? (Camille)
Girl, please! No, I stopped at Tastries to get some fresh bread and decided to grab a cake, too. (Amber)
Hey, Grace. Long time, no see. (Amber)
She is feeling much better since the last time we spoke. (Amber)
And what about Tony? (Camille)
Oh, Tony’s great…better than great- he just got engaged. (Amber)
Engaged? I didn’t know he was seeing anyone. (Camille)
Well, that makes two of us. They’ve only been together for like four months, and I just met her. (Amber)
I’m just worried about him. Tony has never been in a long-term relationship, no steady girlfriends, nothing…and suddenly he’s getting married to someone he’s known for a few months. I don’t understand the big rush. (Amber)
*gasp* You don’t think she’s…(Camille)
Girl, you know it’s crossed my mind. I want to ask him, but I can’t figure out how to say it. I’m hoping Mom will get to the bottom of it. (Amber)
Have they met? (Camille)
I honestly don’t know. I just met her for the first time a week ago. Tony brought her to the New Year’s Eve party at the club, but we were never introduced. (Amber)
Well, I want the scoop once you get it. (Camille, laughing)
Alright ladies, fix yourselves a drink and let me show you the upstairs. (Camille)
