I hadn’t mentioned that Ilse got pregnant. It seemed a good time to try for a baby as Ilse hadn’t yet found a job.

Ilse gave birth and everyone was delighted that it was a boy. That suited Ilse too, as she’s not really into babies and would be glad if she didn’t have to have another one.

The boy, named Renaud, was passed around.  First grandma,

The boy has his mother’s dark features.

The couple were pleased.

Sebastien decided to have a party – to celebrate the arrival of his new grandson and the successful resurrection of René.

Everyone was extremely glad to see René alive and well.

Mostly the family were invited over including Cherie and Elene (still at boarding school).

Cherie enjoys a laugh. She will soon be married.

Chantal notices that the stairs have been moved to the corner.

Her brother’s old enough to be her dad, she thought.

Xavier and Ilse watched a movie after the guests left.
