Henri is now 74 and looks like he might survive for a while to come, but I thought that about another character and was taken unaware by the sudden appearance of the Grim Reaper.  His son, Artois, is living in a small apartment with Angel and the twins.  They’re basically waiting for Henri to die so they can move into the house.

Angel has just grown into an elder. 

Will Artois still love her?  Artois is now a Leading Man and has been voted the sexiest man alive in 3 tabloids.  He could have his pick of any woman (and has…).  Will he stay with Angel or move on?  What will become of the twins?

In the same apartment block is Reefer and wife, Calista.  Calista has just given birth to a boy they named Spliff.  The apartment is too small for children so they’re going to have to move out soon.

Hollandia, a couple of doors down, now works in a record store and her boyfriend, Aiden, is a file clerk but looking for an opening in the politics career.  Hollandia’s not a good cook and she burned the dinner one night.  Like good tenants they both ran outside to safety and it was there that Aiden, for some bizarre reason, decided to pop the question.

(Sorry the pic’s dark.)

At Reefer’s brother, Peyote’s, Lithia has become pregnant and this time it is Peyote’s child.  They were both invited to a party put on by Peyote’s father, Guillaume.

Unfortunately Victoria was still very angry at Lithia’s infidelity (Lithia’s daughter is not Victoria’s grandchild).

She could have dressed for the occasion!

Things were a bit tense.  Peyote must have wondered what was going on.

Reefer looks on in curiosity.

Peyote had gone outside to the bubble machine and others followed.  Henri and Reefer don’t seem to get on at all – no idea why.

Perhaps Reefer found out about Artois’ infidelity and blamed his father?  Who knows.  It all came about with no contribution from me at all.

Reefer and Guillaume chatted afterwards.

So the family reunion was ok, but not the best…
