The Quartz Casa, Willow Creek…
Lorne was excited to meet Hailee. She was Micah’s first foster child.
She was a teeny little thing. Green just like Micah. Lorne’s heart was melting.
Lorne: “You’re a lucky kid. You’ll be able to grow up happy and safe here.”
Fern kissed Lorne as soon as he sat Hailee down.
Fern: “Don’t get ideas, Mister. We have a full house.”
Lorne: “Not too full. We’ll come back to the idea later.”
Micah came out of the kitchen and the three of them sat down.
Micah: “What do you think?”
Lorne: “It’s amazing and Hailee is spectacular.”
Fern: “Great work, Kitten!”
It was Lorne’s birthday.
He thought it’d be a good time to get in shape.
But he sucked. Sorry.
Fern didn’t mind her husband being a stick. She made him his birthday cake as he showered after the workout.
She was pouring a cup of coffee as he approached the cake.
She hadn’t even finished pouring when he blew out the candles.
Fern: “Lorne! You could have waited!”
Lorne: “And gotten melted wax in the frosting? No.”
Fern: “There’s no way you need that much frosting, you could have spared some.”
Dorian: “Happy Birthday, Dad!”
Why does this child always look so smug?
Fern: “Happy Birthday– oh.”
Fern’s head was swimming and Lorne took her up to bed.
The family enjoyed the night anyway.
Griffin mugged for the camera.
Hailee has that sass!
