take my hand – millett/mccarthy wedding

Julia Millett (28 years), Elias McCarthy (25 years), Grady McCarthy (1 month)

Leah is upstairs, helping her daughter prepare for her wedding. This is her first time seeing her daughter’s living quarters in this whirlwind engagement, and she’s holding her tongue on the very “Nicole-ness” quality of their bedroom. She can’t see her daughter’s personality anywhere in the decor. She wishes her daughter would find a home of her own to have a family.

Leah knows personally the struggles of living with inlaws and raising a family, as she continued to live that nightmare. It wasn’t until recent years where she got to actually pick and purchase her first home, bringing along her father-in-law.

narrated by Perla

When I graduated university, Mom and Dad insisted that I move anywhere but in with Julius. They are old-fashioned when it comes to living with boyfriends, plus they down right don’t approve of him. I may have let it slip that he was involved with some shady people, plus he lives in a run down unit as well.

Elias switched dorms after Rachael broke up with him. His twin teased that he was being the weaker man, but Elias just didn’t care about any of that. He had only gone to EU because he had gotten a scholarship, and Rachael had insisted; it had felt nice to be wanted.

narrated by: Oliver

Summer break is a big deal for me as it is to the kids I teach. My Mom has been nagging me constantly to keep an eye on my younger brother, Julius since he lives in South Port. We do live a city block away, but I don’t have time to just snoop around my brother’s business.
