Vivienne and Cicely turn fifteen this month, and are spending the afternoon with their boyfriends. Dating is strictly forbidden until seventeen in the Russo-Traver household, all thanks to their big brother, Lewis getting a girl pregnant in high school.
Cicely had crushed on Alex ever since her Grandma Regina died. Recently they had shared their first kiss, once his girlfriend, Scarlett had left for college. They had broken up, so Cicely didn’t feel guilty. However, she just wasn’t interested in him anymore.
Vivienne was enthralled with Monroe, and had gone ahead to invite Alex to their secret birthday shopping trip. Cicely would have preferred Alex didn’t come, he was an especial bore when it came to shopping. It seemed her twin was having a great birthday though, she just needed Monroe to ask her to be his girlfriend, and she’d be blissfully happy.
It was Rebecca’s 39th birthday, and instead of celebrating with a picnic by the sound, they were telling all the kids about the divorce, which the girls had already found out, and Quint’s declining health.
They all took it especially hard.
Quint went to soothe Wyatt while Rebecca took Tyson.
Rebecca tried to explain their delay in sharing all the horrible news, but Scarlett mostly tuned her out.
Neither of them could afford the house, so Quint took the kids to his new house on the opposite end of Millwood.
It only had two bedrooms, just like Rebecca’s, which meant they were all sharing a bedroom. Tyson decided that this time of family trauma, was the perfect time to antagonize his big brother.
Quint asked for the kids’ approval, with the closing being in two days. They all gave a shrug. Scarlett suddenly felt like she didn’t have a home to come back to for the summer.
The girls worked to comfort one another.
Quint stepped into the bathroom to get control of his emotions. He knew that a two bedroom house wasn’t big enough for his family. He’d slaved to buy the other house for his family, and now it was to be sold. It all seemed very cruel.
Tyson saw a cherry tree on the property, and he was instantly sold. Quint was grateful that Tyson seemed to be taking it like a champ, which was the opposite they had expected.
The kids went home, and worked on packing all their bags. They would do split custody, and everything was decided without the need of a judge, just a lawyer to make it legal.
Riley Gray and Flint Picasso get set up at an off-campus apartment just in time for their daughter to arrive. Corbin and Barbara came over to their apartment as soon as they were back home to see their first grandbaby.
They were smitten with sweet Quinn Gray.
Mostly Quinn’s parents were smitten with her too, but she was a handful that they didn’t feel well-equipped to handle.
Riley had a pit in her stomach when she thought of juggling her studies and Quinn’s demands.
The new little family is working to get settled into their new life before classes pick back up in the fall.

Flint is surprisingly, a pretty good Dad… They’re both in motive failure for the most part, and while they are each having their fits, they autonomously take care of Quinn.
Jessica thought that meeting her granddaughter would be a good time to try to get pregnant herself. She was not successful, but seriously!? I’ve given her ample times to TFB, and she NEVER has! Matt and Jessica fought like psychos the entire time too, Flint really has a dysfunctional family. Despite his poor choices to cheat on Bea with Riley, and get her pregnant, I still feel hopeful for him.
Thanks for reading!
