Sarah's POV...


" Hello, uncle Henry and aunt Alice. We have heard so much about you." Joy went on to say as we watched a shaking Henry reach out to Daniel who didn't hesitate to crouch down beside his chair and be allowed to be patted and hugged by the frail old man.

We all moved eventually around the patio getting a place at the table or nearby for dinner and like when they first met Reid, Henry was wanting both Joy and Daniel close by and we weren't surprised at seeing him touch both of them every now and again. Alice too was doing the same thing.

Daniel was issuing that invitation for a family get together at Micah's place in the very near future and the whole Webster-Finley clan was excited that they all decided that they were going to attend. Joy mentioned during the course of the evening that her son George was the new Earl of Lowell. A line he inherited through Joy's father's line from his grandfather Sebastian, Florence's father.

That made the girls all squeal when they realised they had a Lord for a relative now. They were mentioning something about bragging rights or some such thing. Daniel even pulled out his phone and showed Henry and Alice the photos of the family he has. He even had a few that he showed of his birth mother when she married Daniel's father, John.

It was a lovely evening spent with everyone. But at the end of it, I was feeling a little sad because I knew that Barb and Jaxon would be leaving either tomorrow or the day after. They still had so much to do with this extra research as well as the investigation regarding her so-called grandmother back in Emmett.

But we'll meet up again.

Tonight, Reid and I get to tell Jack he's going to be a big brother again in a few months. I was so looking forward to that happening. I can just imagine it. Then I realised that my babies were going to be either aunts or uncles to Jack and Jens children who were going to be a few years older than they are.

Life was really exciting at times these days. Everyone thought when I was young that I was going to grow up to be a feral kid. They may have thought I was too wild to be house trained. Tamed, they would sometimes say. But it wasn't the case at all.

I loved being outdoors and exploring. Had Ashur survived, I would have had him outside exploring with me. My heart hurts when I think of him still. But now I have this new pregnancy which was a shock. One I am still coming to terms with. I will never forget my first baby and Reid has helped me with that.

But we still have all this investigating to do first before relaxing and enjoying this new change that has come into our lives.

That evening was certainly one of the most enjoyable we all have had in a long time. Micah reiterated again all night long the invitation for everyone to come up to his and Jill's place. And of course, everyone was accepting the invites. I guess Micah was making sure.

I can still see the look on Henry and Alice's faces when Joy and Daniel introduced themselves to them. The tears couldn't stop running all night long. It only made me wonder just how close Henry was to his older brother. But then, Rupert must have been some man to take Henry, his illegitimate brother, into his home and consider him a big part of his family from what we have learnt so far.
