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.

Scarlett had always believed that television did not depict reality, as such she had anticipated college being full of studious students; she had been woefully mistaken. The greatest punishment was that she had been placed in Willa’s residence hall. She’d said all along that she should have been in Miner Hall. Willa was gorgeous, thin, a model, and terribly viscous.

The kids are thrilled to be back in their own home, and away from the farm. The boys didn’t mind missing out on the wedding, but they all detested staying at their Uncle Finn’s farm for a week. He had told their parents he’d put them to work, but they’d thought it was just something adults said. How wrong they had been!
Recently minted as a big sister, Mavis celebrates her fourth birthday this summer. Nadia and Luca are both immensely proud of their eldest daughter as she has embraced being a big sister quite quickly, and is full of individuality and spunk.

Warren Dennis (49 years), Jessica Picaso (38 years), Jett and Flint (18 years)
She had been twenty when she’d had the boys, they were the beginning of her family, and she had expected another baby to follow after them. But none had. Matt hadn’t wanted another baby, but it hadn’t stopped him from fathering that girl when the boys were just five.
She’d fought for her marriage, pleading and yearning for a man that was less affectionate than a goldfish. She hadn’t agreed to the divorce until she was twenty-nine years old. He had tried to get full-custody out of spite, and was rewarded partial custody that he regularly failed to uphold.
She disliked the bastard daughter, but there had been a sort of irony when he was awarded partial custody of her too, and then his mistress died from addictions. Jessica didn’t wish the woman dead, well, she had, but never literally. But it still didn’t soften her anger towards the child, even as the boys had embraced her as a sister, she was still jealous that she existed, and her own daughter never had.
But now, on the eve of her second wedding, she doesn’t know if a third child is a dream she should follow.
Flint despises Warren. Should it matter? She can’t decide. He leaves for boot camp and to follow in his Dad’s footsteps in just a month. Despite all she has done to raise his empathy and compassion, she has failed. He idolizes his Dad, and treats Warren horribly. But he’s her son, she can’t disregard his feelings. Perhaps underneath his anger, he actually feels hurt that she’s marrying again.
