Sorrow was again pregnant by Akanami.  It was too much having Jean-Pierre hanging around so Sorrow broke up with him.

Jean-Pierre moved out and into an apartment building not far away.  He immediately met an attractive woman at the apartment roof party.

She was a widow whose daughter had recently married the half-alien son of Garrett Newson.

They got to know each other pretty quickly.

Cheryl (the widow) fell in love quickly and proposed.  But Jean-Pierre wasn’t ready.

He was still upset about his broken marriage.

However, after a very short while, he was ready and proposed to her himself.

She accepted, naturally.

They didn’t muck around.  They married quietly in the apartment without ceremony.

They moved out of the tiny apartment.  Cheryl is pregnant already.  Jean-Pierre doesn’t muck around – still hoping for that heir.

Meanwhile, back at the Champignon residence, Sorrow was a bit upset about the marriage breakup as well.

Toddler, Serenity, grew to school age.

It didn’t take long before Akanami proposed to Sorrow.

They were going to get married in the garden the following morning.  But Sorrow went into labour.

I didn’t want her to have the baby before the wedding (even though they both have the same surname).  I tried again but it wasn’t quick enough.  On the third go, they just wed outside just before dawn.

Not a moment too soon.  Sorrow went into labour.

Third time round she had a boy (the others were girls).

His name is Romain.

For some bizarre reason Jean-Pierre suddenly appeared.

He took the baby off to feed it.  He can’t get enough of babies it seems.

So Akanami now has another son who has the potential to be a worthy heir.  But Jean-Pierre now has a pregnant wife.  What if she gives birth to a boy?  Who will be the Champignon heir?
