"Okay girls, it's time to go," they were told.
"Amelia sends her love!" Arturo said, giving Eva a hug. "I'm so happy for you!"
"Thanks, Artie," she said. "Thanks for being my friend!"
Arturo chucked her playfully under her chin. "What are pals for?!" he grinned before heading off to collect his wife. It looked like Amelia was giving him hell all the way to their car.
Eva glanced back over to her Mother, but saw that the Gibbons had left. The party was starting to wind down. "Come on, let's go find Daddy and then we can go!" Eva said, reaching for Nathaniel's hand.
Chase squeezed Eva extra tight. "Be happy!" he said with a wavering voice.
Sandra turned and said, "I wouldn't be too sure of that..."
Oh boy, Chase thought.
"You're perfect!" he said, stroking her cheek.
Nathaniel pulled her into his arms. "Oh, I'll show you how real it is!" he said. "I've been waiting for months... years... for this day!"
Eva draped her arms around his shoulders and grinned as she pulled him towards her. "You might have to show me again!"
Nathaniel groaned. "You're going to kill me!" he said as he followed her down.
