This Path Of Destiny – 5.20 – Wish You Were Here

Ashe Amour, from the future, my brain processed. I wanted to laugh in his face but he was, strangely enough, bein’ honest. How could he be honest about bein’ from the future unless he was a complete nutjob? Should I really allow a nutjob in my house? But I felt nothing threatenin’ from him so I stepped back and indicated for him to come inside.

Ashe looked and felt surprised. “Just like that?” he asked. “You believe me?”

“Mr. Amour, I have the uncanny ability to tell when someone is lying,” I said, not really feelin’ like dragging this out. “I can tell you’re telling me the truth, as unlikely as it seems. So I might as well let you in and explain things to me. Obviously there is something super important you want to ask me. At ten at night,” I added.

Ashe had the decency to look chagrined. “I saw you were awake, you had just gone to the barn. I am sorry if I am cutting into your sleep but it is rather important and I’m not a hundred percent sure how much time I have left in this time period.” He stepped into the house, lookin’ around. I shut the door and pointed towards the space where the couch was.

“Why don’t you have a seat?” I offered. “So, how did you time travel? I thought it was generally impossible anymore. The knowledge of time travel was lost and even when it was around, wasn’t it just to certain periods in time? Do you want something to drink?”

“No thanks,” he said, answering the last part first. “And as for time travel… it’s a bit complicated…” As he went to the couch he muttered something. Something genies and a Time God. Yeah, genies, a god, time travel. Honesty. These things didn’t really seem to go very well together but… might as well give him the benefit of the doubt.

We sat down on the couch and he put his hands on his thighs, looking intently at the TV. “You seem a lot calmer than I would’ve expected, Miss Danevbie. It is… Miss… right?” He had real strange emotions at that. A little surge of hope, a little surge of worry. What, was he planning on hitting on me? But I saw he had a wedding ring on…

“My marital status is of no importance, I’d wager,” I said, leanin’ back on the couch. “I’m sure your wife would agree.”

He smiled at that. “I wasn’t asking for myself, ma’am.”

Ugh, still not lying. What was with this guy? “I’m still single,” I said and he nodded, feelin’ a lot better about it. “So who wanted to know? Did someone send you to spy on me or something? I know you’re a PI.”

“I wasn’t sent to spy on you,” he said quickly. “I think the best place to start would be the beginning. It’s going to be a strange tale but true, believe it.”

“I’ll believe it,” I said with a shrug. “I can tell.”

“Can you really?” he asked, starin’ at me again. Disbelief was settlin’ into him until I pointed out he was from the future because of a god, was it so strange to find someone who could tell when others were lying? Ashe laughed at that. “True, true. My life hasn’t exactly been the most… normal of things. I’ve dealt with a lot of supernatural occurrences so some sort of mental lie detector shouldn’t be too strange.”

“Same reason someone from the future shouldn’t be too strange for me,” I said. “So why don’t you tell me your story?”

Ashe nodded and settled back. “Long version or short?” he asked and I asked for the long one. I might as well hear what was going on. “All right. Well, as I said I’m from the future. I’m not quite sure how far in the future that is but I’d wager a good sixty or more years. I grew up in Zephyr Hills and my father was a firefighter. When I was a teenager, he helped put out a fire that started my… interaction with the supernatural, I’ll say. Not long after the fire I met a girl.”

I smiled at that, since he was full of romanticness now and love. “Your girlfriend?” I asked and he got all flustered, it was real adorable.

“Not at the time,” he answered, looking down. “She was dead at the time.” Now that certainly confused me. But before I could say anything, Ashe continued. “A ghost. She died in the fire. After that I started dealing with more ghosts. They came to me with their stories. Messages. Oftentimes, to expose the murderer. I helped them to move on.”

With each word he said I felt edgier and edgier, and at this point I stood up. “I think I’d rather have the short version,” I snapped.

Ashe looked up at me and then patted the couch. “I suggest sitting down, please.”

“You can’t boss me in my own home!” I griped, but slowly I sat down. This was a crazy that, that was what I decided. Some lunatic convinced he was from the future and was able to talk to ghosts. I folded my hands in my lap and looked hard at them.

“Sunny–the ghost girl–convinced me to become a private investigator,” he continued. I wasn’t sure if this was still the long version or the short one. I didn’t care at this point, really. I wanted him to get done with this crap and leave. “She told me with my gift, I would make a great PI so… I became one, for her. I worked hard and did my job. I enjoyed it. And eventually, thanks to the deceased members of my family, I was led to a woman named Pons.”

Here he stopped his story and just shook his head. “She put me on a horse, she rode a unicorn, and we went quite a ways. To the home of three women who needed my help. Not… they weren’t normal women, though.”

“Were they ghosts, too?” I asked sarcastically.

He didn’t even get in the slightest bit upset at my annoyed tone. “No, they were genies,” he answered. “Or… will be genies? Are genies? This time travel thing is strange.”

“Genies.” Oh this was just getting better and better. “Genies?” I asked again. “Like–what you said… before?”

“Genies,” he confirmed with a chuckle. “As I mentioned before. They had a job for me. They wanted me to find and free some male genies. It was a… complicated journey. I needed to find the ghost of a man to tell me where his daughter was so I could talk to a genie, to find the male genies. I was able to do it, and eventually found the three male genies. And I freed them. After I took them back to the three female genies, they gave me their payment. Which was a wish, from each of them.”

I rubbed my forehead, really confused by all this. What did this have to do with me? “I’m sorry, but genies and ghosts and time travel?” I asked and he nodded. “Maybe this is a bit out of what I imagined strange to be.”

“I know, I know,” he laughed, though now he was soundin’ real nervous. “I made my first wish, though. Which was about Sunny.”

“The ghost girl you liked,” I confirmed and he nodded. “What… did you wish for…?” My voice dropped low without my intendin’ it to.

“To bring her back to life,” he replied, straightforward and honest. I stared at him, feelin’ my heart leaping at that. “It wasn’t true life, though,” he said, frownin’ slightly. “She was a ghost. She would grow older and die of old age, like any living person. Er, like most living people. And she had to really want to be back on this earth. Ghosts–ghosts have a yearning to go back to the other side. But Sunny… she wanted to be here.”

“For you?” I asked softly and he smiled, not really answerin’ that. “Mr. Amour, I am sorry, but what the hell does this have to do with me?”

He lifted his chin. “Please, bear with me. I’m almost there. I need to explain the first parts before I get there. That was my first wish, for Sunny. My second wish was for us to have kids. We tried for years but were unable until I went back to the genies for that second wish. They granted it, and we have twins now. Umber and Copper.” He hesitated there and I knew what he wanted.

“Can I see them?” I asked with a half-smile and he quickly whipped out a photo of two beautiful boys. I touched the photo and felt the proud papa feelin’ from Ashe. “They are very handsome,” I said, smilin’ now. “You’re a lucky man, Mr. Amour. But I still don’t–“

“My third wish was recent,” he said as I handed back the picture. “It was what my wife wanted. She asked me… and… the genies granted it…” He was nervous, concerned, and very edgy. It was makin’ me feel that way now. “My wife she–she wanted… she met this ghost. Another ghost. They became very good friends, during their time in the graveyard. They were close to the same age at the time of their death. And she said… after she and I were reunited she couldn’t help but thinking about him, and his sad tale.”

I dug my fingernails into my thighs. I didn’t like this one bit. He was feelin’ so edgy now it was making me so jumpy, I almost wanted to throw up. “Mr. Amour,” I croaked but couldn’t get the words out because it couldn’t be true, not in Zephyr Hills that was on the other side of the country and not–not anywhere–near…

“She asked me to wish him the same existence as hers,” Ashe said, staring into my eyes. I had to look away. “A living ghost, if he wanted. And… so I went to the genies. They granted the wish, and Sunny’s friend became… a living ghost…”

“Mr. Amour–“

But he wouldn’t shut up. He kept going. He wouldn’t shut up. “Except the problem was, he was far in the future from the person he loved.” Ashe stood up as well and I took a few steps back. “I’m not completely sure what happened there, but we were sent to this time to find you. I’m not sure if it was because of the genies, or the Time God they mentioned–but we were sent back here.

It felt like he punched my heart and I clutched my stomach, tryin’ my hardest not to barf. “Just shut up!” I managed to gasp out. “Stop it!!!! If this is some sort of cruel joke… you… you bastard…  this isn’t funny… He was buried in France! You sick, twisted–” But I couldn’t go on, I just started sobbing. I fell to my knees and covered my face, cryin’ hard.

Ashe put his hand on my arm and I angrily shoved it away except when I tried to shove it away, it didn’t feel right. It was a bit cold and felt faint. Before I could react, he spoke. “Please don’t cry, Sen…”

As soon as he spoke, it was like it had been yesterday. Ten years disappeared in an instant. I looked up into his face, and Henri smiled down at me. The punch to my heart felt harder and I somehow fell from a kneeling position. “Watcher–Watcher–” I gasped out, findin’ it a bit hard to breathe.

Henri knelt down. “Calm down. Please calm down, darling. Breathe slowly. Don’t hyperventilate.” He tilted his head slightly and his eyes were somehow both transparent and full of warmth, though his body didn’t feel very warm at all.

“I’m sorry, I–” Ashe began but Henri shook his head, leavin’ a slight trail of some black smoke.

“It’s all right, she’s okay. You are okay, right?” He carefully reached out and when his hands touched mine, I jerked again.

“Impossible,” I managed to get out. “Impossible! It’s–impossible–“

“It’s not impossible. It’s real. I’m–” He stopped and looked down at his arms. “I’m as real as I can be, as a ghost. But it’s me. I’m here. I’m here again, Sen. I’m here.”

“Hen…?”

His face settled into a smile, and I could see past the ghostliness. I could see his old face. I reached up and put my hand on his cheek. He closed his eyes and leaned into my hand then reached up as well, putting his hand on mine. He was faintly warm, but only barely. He wasn’t as thin and sickly-seemin’ as he was the moment he died but he did feel chilly and faint, and just had a sort of tired feelin’ to him. But it was him. Oh hell, it was him.

I threw my arms around him, wrappin’ them tightly around his body, and he put his arms around me. “Hen!” I cried out, huggin’ him hard. “Oh Watcher, Hen, it’s you, it’s you!” My face found his neck and I cried. “It’s you, it’s you, it’s really you!”

“Sen, I’ve missed you,” he whispered into my ear. “I never thought we’d be together again. How long has it been for you?”

“Ten years,” I sniffled into his shirt. “How long–for you?”

“A lot longer than that,” he murmured, runnin’ his fingers up my back. “I’m glad it was just ten years for you. I’m not sure why we weren’t sent back before this time,  I’m sorry it wasn’t sooner… but…” Now he pushed me back and was sorta glarin’ at me. “Ten years? You didn’t keep your promise! You said you’d move on!”

“I did!” I exclaimed. “Just because I didn’t find any stupid boyfriend or anything, and besides, I almost did I was just not interested. And it wasn’t just missing you. I just really didn’t want to date anyone. Just because I live alone and don’t have a boyfriend at twenty-eight doesn’t make me an old maid crying over my lost love!” Someone snorted at that and then I remembered Ashe was still there.

“You really moved on?” he asked, his hand on my cheek again. “Promise?”

“Flying machine and everything,” I said, pursin’ my lips and givin’ him a look.

He looked confused for a second and then his face split into a grin. “Hey, no quoting that movie. I thought that was the agreement.”

“You’re not on your deathbed,” I reminded him. “You’re alive–well, you’re… back.” I put my hands on his cheeks. “I have you back. Oh Watcher, you’re back!” And then my lips found his lips. I kissed him hard and fierce. His lips pressed back and I was lost in the kiss again, that kiss that had disappeared so many years ago, that kiss that was rapidly comin’ back. How could I ever forget this feelin’, even if it was slightly cold and… kinda strange…

I opened my eyes and then pulled back. Ashe was laughing and Henri looked a bit upset. “What happened?” I asked, blinkin’.

“Shut up!” Henri growled at Ashe. “I imagine your first kiss with Sunny was the same!”

“She didn’t put her face halfway through mine,” Ashe said, grinnin’ and folding his arms.

“You put your face through mine?” I raised an eyebrow at Henri who was poutin’.

“Maybe,” he grumbled. “I got overexcited. It’s been decades for me, give me a break!”

“How about I give you another kiss?” I offered, pulling him close so I could kiss him again. Yesterday I woulda been totally freaked out at the idea of kissin’ a ghost but this just felt so right and natural, even if his face had gone halfway through mine. A bit different from the kisses he gave me from when he was living, but just as perfect.

We pulled away from each other and then I put my face into his shoulder again. After a few seconds, I remembered once again we weren’t alone. “Ashe. Mr. Amour.” I looked up at him and then somehow managed to get to my feet. “Thank you. Thank you…” I almost tripped as I went to hug him, but I got my arms around him. “Thank you so much, thank you…” I found myself cryin’ on his shoulder. “How can I possibly–ever–thank you–?”

“Miss Danevbie, it is more than enough to see two people so in love reunited,” he answered, pattin’ my back. “And also to give my wife this. She seemed very taken with Henri’s story.”

Now I looked up at him. “But I don’t understand something else–Zephyr Hills?” I turned to look at Henri who was floatin’ real close. “How? You–you were in France.”

“I don’t know,” he said, reachin’ out for me. I fell back into his arms, nuzzlin’ up to him. “I remember vaguely being in France. In the Laroche mausoleum. But one day when my spirit was freed for a short time, I was in a new place. Zephyr Hills. I have no idea how it happened, but it did.”

“And you befriended Sunny?” I asked and he shook his head.

“It was decades before she arrived in the cemetery. She was just a few years younger than me… I found it easier to talk to her than any of the other ghosts. She was good company, and though it was a bit sad to lose her, I was glad she moved on.” Now Henri smiled at Ashe. “She mentioned you, before–before she moved on. I am glad you two were reunited as well. I know I said that earlier but…” His arms tightened around me. “I can appreciate it even more now.”

“Tell her thank you,” I whispered. “For me. Thank you. To both of you. To all of you. I just can’t even…”

“I will tell her,” Ashe promised.

“Yes, please give her my many thanks too,” Henri said. “It’s so hard to imagine she… after all those years… remembering me like that… asking you… giving up a wish for this… Like Sen, I can’t even begin to express words for this.”

“As I said before, it’s worth it to see a scene like this, and for Sunny’s happiness,” he said, smilin’ a bit wider but feelin’ a bit embarrassed about all our thanking, but it really was too much, way too much. I wanted to give him something in return but what did I have? Anything material seemed so… paltry. Plus I could tell how he was feelin’, and he wasn’t wanting anything. So there was no point in offering anything. What on earth could I possibly have that would be even a fraction of how thankful I was? Henri–my Henri–was back. I had him back. It was all too much, and I began cryin’ again.

Hen wiped away my tears. “I hope those are tears of joy,” he teased.

I glared at him through the tears. “Is it still feasible to smack you?” I asked and then gave it a try. It wasn’t the same as smackin’ human flesh but there was a bit of solidity there. “Ooh,” I breathed out.

“I’m pretty much able to interact with you and with furniture and everything,” he laughed.

Ashe was nodding again. “You’ll need to eat and sleep, and it is just like you’re living again. Only not much can harm you. You’ll grow older and–” Now he felt a bit embarrassed again but I knew what he was feelin’.

“We can have kids,” I finished for him and he ducked his head, the brim of his hat hidin’ his eyes. I blushed and then as I felt a bit embarrassed, and Ashe felt a bit embarrassed… “Hen?” I asked, lookin’ at him again. “I can’t… feel you.”

“What do you mean?” he asked.

“Your emotions,” I gulped. “I can’t feel them. At all. I can’t… I have nothing from you. I can feel Ashe. But I can’t feel you.” I touched his face and then pressed my forehead against his. I got nothin’. No emotions from him. But judgin’ by his facial expression he was feelin’ something. “Is it because you’re a ghost?”

“It must be,” he said in amazement. “I certainly am having emotions right now. Many emotions. Are you sure you’re just not–“

“I’m sure.” I put my head on his shoulder again. It was a little scary but also good. The reason I disliked people so much. The reason I had fought with Henri. The reason I didn’t like dating. Takin’ this out of the equation… “I can feel emotions,” I put in as I felt Ashe’s confusion. “That’s how I can tell when someone is lying. But I can’t feel Hen. I guess if I ever meet another ghost, I can test it out.”

“I’m not sure what all makes the differences between ghosts like Sunny and Henri, and living people like us,” Ashe said. “All I really know is what I told you. Oh and–I should warn you, I was told there was a chance of…” He pushed his hat back and frowned. “When a ghost like him and Sunny, uh, have kids with someone living like us, there is a chance the child will be de–will be a ghost. We were lucky with the twins. But if you two… do decide to… you might not be as lucky. Just wanted to let you know.”

“Thank you,” I said for the millionth time. It was something to think about, but not right now. Except… it did bring about another question. “What about…” I trailed off and looked back and forth between Henri and Ashe. “Your disease?”

“I–I’m not sure,” Henri admitted.

“Sunny had said you died of a sickness,” Ashe said. “I may not know the exact details but I have met a lot of ghosts in my life. Anything terminal did not stay with them. Since it affects the living body, I assume, and not the soul and–whatever else it is that makes a ghost. They retain… some of what they had at their last moments. For instance, Sunny sometimes feels like she has flames around her, when I feel them on her–” Oh hell I did not need to know how that made Ashe feel, “–but it’s nothing that really hurts her. It’s just what I feel coming off of her.”

“So if we do have children, they might not get my disease?” Henri asked. I may not have been able to feel the hope he felt, but I could certainly hear it in his voice.

“You no longer have the disease,” Ashe said. “So you would not be able to pass it onto your children. And… I think I have to go.” He looked up and frowned. “I wasn’t told how long I had but I am getting the feeling my time here is done.”

I let go of Henri and put my arms around Ashe. “I know I could never repay you. I would do anything but… I guess that’s pointless since… you’re from the future.”

“I appreciate the offer, Miss Danevbie. And I–” He paused and then laughed. “I guess it’d be weird for me to say I wish you all the happiness. But yeah, you get the idea.”

Now Henri hugged him. “Thank you, Ashe, and again, thank Sunny for me and give her my love. And those two little boys of yours.”

“I will.” Ashe was grinning again. “Goodbye you two, and good luck in everything.” He walked out of the house and then he was gone; I couldn’t feel him anymore. I wasn’t sure if he just walked out of the radius or what, since I was givin’ Henri my full attention now.

I still was havin’ a hard time believing he was back. Looking at him, my hands on his face, hearin’ his voice, there was still something so unreal about all this. And very scary. My stomach was churnin’ a bit. I was worried that maybe things would be different, that my ten years away from him and his many decades away from me would change things for the worse. I loved him still. Or rather, again. For I had moved on during our time apart. I never really stopped lovin’ him, but it was something I put in my past. Now it was back, it was real–and unreal–and now…

Now we had the rest of our lifetime together, something we never had before.

    This is a fantastic story, but I’m noticing something. You write plenty of gay men, but no gay women. Why not? As a gay woman myself, I do dislike the idea that all women are straight in this story. It’s a good story, but everytime I see the men and men, and the men and women together, it bugs me. Just some food for thought.

    • sErindeppity says:

      I have been upset about that too, and I am sorry I have not had a lesbian couple yet. I have some story ideas for them–I just haven’t had the chance. And honestly I only ever had one gay male story planned, which was Sebastian’s story. Kyle Danevbie chose Kenyatta on his own and I went with it. And then when I was messing around with genetics in gen five, I got the idea for the next generation on the spot. I am sorry and I hope you’re willing to stick with it. ._. But thank you for commenting about it, I really appreciate it and promise to include more lesbians. I might–well, I had an idea for part of Serenity’s gen/beginning of the sixth gen originally then I decided not to do it because gen 6 was going to be gay… but I think I might just go ahead and do it. You’re right. All my women so far have been straight, and that is a very unrealistic balance. So I am going with what I originally had planned, despite what gen 6 is going to do. I hope you like it. 🙂
      (I also think part of it is, sexual preferences aside, I prefer writing from a guy’s viewpoint so I tend to focus more on guys when I am writing than girls, which in itself is unfair).

      (Plus I am only on gen 5 out of 13 gens and there have been more male Danevbies than female. Jacob, Cal, Kyle, Orion, Sebastian, Cesario, Duncan, Simon, and Mal. 9 guys in the Danevbies, 2 gay, so 7 straight guys and 2 gay guys as opposed to Tempest, Luna, Viola, Serenity, Kaylee, and River. 6 girls. All straight. x_o)

      • denile13 says:

        Thank you for taking my comment into consideration and promising a more realistic ratio. I’ve been reading this story from the beginning and was really hoping that, unlike other stories that just have gay males, there would be some gay females as well. It’s nice to see I wasn’t wrong. 🙂 Also, if being gay is genetic (at least partially), then technically doing multiple generations in a row with the same sexuality wouldn’t be unrealistic.

        Again, thank you for the reply and the consideration, that really means a lot to me.

      • sErindeppity says:

        I am really glad that you weren’t as upset as my (tending to be wild) imagination was trying to convince me of. It just seriously did not even occur to me the unfair ratio since I tend to focus more on males than females, and I probably wouldn’t have realized it until one of my generation plots about a gay woman got picked. So I really appreciate the bucket of water you poured over my head there xD

        SPOILERS –>My original plan was to have Kaylee be a lesbian, since Serenity won the heir vote. Then I decided not to, after I found my gen 6 heir. But after what you said, I thought “people can deal, if they’re annoyed then let them be” and am going to revert to my original plan. <–END SPOILERS

        And you are welcome for the reply, I’m very grateful you put up that comment 🙂 -hugs-

    • sErindeppity says:

      I hope my lengthy response explained things xD I kind of babbled there and then after I realized the numbers (7 straight males, 2 gay, 6 straight females) I just felt awful since it wasn’t something I was intentionally doing or even meant to do (and it will change). I do hope you’ll continue to read ❤

  2. -giggles and grins like an idiot- XD SOO MUCH WIN in this chapter, xD

  3. Maddy says:

    AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!! Can I just say I love you? THANK YOU FOR BRINGING HEN BACK!!! SOOOOO HAPPY RIGHT NOW!!! *Happy dance!*

  4. Baker says:

    WOW! Hen is back! WOOT! Will be interesting to see ghost babies but I’m excited. Hehehe! Welcome back Hen! I’m so happy for Sen! She needs all the love she can get. ^^

    • sErindeppity says:

      😀 Hen is back. x] I am excited for ghost babies too -crosses fingers- She will be getting some loving xD ahaha.

      • Baker says:

        Yeah! I’m really happy! Ghost babies will be interesting. ^^
        Wondering what her family will think.

      • sErindeppity says:

        I am looking forward to writing about how her family reacts to this. ^__^
        When I was testing their genetics they seemed to have more ghost babies than not, so… yay!

      • Baker says:

        O well! At least they still have babies. Which is a good thing. Then Sen will be a good mommy and Hen will be a good daddy. It will be fun and interesting. ^^ BRING ON THE BABIES. LOL!
        I still not sure how her family will feel but I think Sen should be happy to have Hen. I hope her family will not bother her about it. Let her be happy with her Hen. ^^

      • sErindeppity says:

        No no I mean they did have more ghost babies than living babies, so I am hoping to get ghost babies. At least one xD
        Hen is going to be a fun dad. Sen will be a good mommy ❤ and the kids will probably have a blast with the horses 😀

      • Baker says:

        Yeah.. I’m excited. ^^

  5. ATMzie says:

    Eeeeee! I knew it! I knew he’d come back!

  6. Hakari says:

    ASDFGHJKL SO MUCH HAPPINESS RIGHT NOW I CAN’T EVEN FULLY EXPRESS IT.
    All I gotta say is I LOVE YOU AND I’M FLAILING BECAUSE HENRI IS BACK AND “ALIVE” AND THEY CAN HAVE BABIES AND JUST~! 😀

  7. Glory R says:

    There isn’t much I can add to all of this except I’m so excited that Hen is back!!!!!!! As for the lesbian couple I had noticed this as well and I’m a straight woman…but would be fine with your plans, equal opportunity for everyone!!!! flailing like crazy, cause Hen is back with Serenity and there will be babies and love and whooppee, happy, happy am I!!!!

    • sErindeppity says:

      There is a lot of excitement going around about Hen but more is welcome. xD

      I appreciate you commenting about that! I just really didn’t realize it until now. x___x I blame Harry Potter fanfiction. Lack of girls meant writing fanfic about males for twelve years. xD I agree. Equal opportunity for all!….. Except for Doug. He’s too much of a jerk. -nods-

      I am soooooo excited for babies and for the birth of gen 6 heir. xD

  8. sweetribz says:

    Oh my god..I’m just a sobbing mess! Right when I saw ‘Don’t cry Sen” I just..what? Henri? Then she cried and hugged him..T_T * crying with serenity* Its so beautiful -sniff-

    I’d been thinking of part of a song that represented what happened to SJ for the past few chapters:

    Ghost of You-My chemical Romance ( just replace the Female terms with Male) 🙂

  9. HOOOLY GOD DAMMMNNN
    i didn’t see that coming??? woah. what a good way to bring him back u3u

  10. OMB, I wasn’t expecting that! :’D I’m so thrilled he’s back! 😀 You had me in tears the second I saw his face, I’m soo thrilled they can finally be together! :’)

    • sErindeppity says:

      ^____^ I’m so happy then x3 I am excited to get the rest of this story going. Now with 100% more ghostliness!! 😀 -giggles-. Or 50% or something I dunno. xD but Henri! -flails-

    HAPPINESS!!!!! Henri’s back. Oh I just love Sunny for remembering him and wanting him to be just as happy has she was. I love it, I really do but now I’m even more scared. Damn stupid Jay lurking about. After SJ now she may try to take Henri to test him. UGH but I won’t dwell on that right now. For now I am happy that Henri is back and SJ can stop being a hermit!

    • sErindeppity says:

      I am so grateful for Tuf for making Henri’s return so much more interesting 😀

      No dwelling on Jay right now. She won’t be coming into the story for a while, I promise. ❤ The only time you'll see her within the next half dozen chapters at the LEAST (probably more), is if I release a Redding special.

      Yep, SJ can get properly better and get a nice job as a PI. xD

    o_o
    I don’t get it. XD

  13. wow I legit wasn’t expecting that….O_O

  14. LaLaLa says:

    Whats the Ashe guy got to do with anything? xD
    And uhem… Henri. How are they talking about having kids together when he’s a ghost. #IsoundveryignorantXD

    • sErindeppity says:

      In the Amour legacy, Ashe was a private investigator and he did a favor for some genies who granted him 3 wishes. First he wished for Sunny, the girl he loved, to be back but since she was dead, she came back as a ghost. But they were happy together. Then Ashe wished for the ability for them to have kids together. And then Sunny–who had known Henri as a ghost, when they were haunting the same graveyard–asked Ashe to bring Henri back the same way she was. So Henri was brought back as a ghost, and they have the ability to have kids. And Ashe and Henri were sent back in time to Serenity so she and Henri could be together 🙂 I hope that clears it up ^__^ if I need to explain anything more let me know ❤

    EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

    That’s a close approximation of what’s been going through my head and coming through my mouth since Sen and I started to see where Ashe was going with his story. That, and, “HenriHenriHenriHenri!!!” 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀

    SQUEEEEEE!

    I wonder how the rest of the Danevebies will take it. Sen can’t just keep something like this, this is too frickin’ awesome to be kept hidden. Somehow, I’m pretty sure Kaylee will take it all in stride. XD

    If they do have kids, can one pleasepleaseplease get Henri’s hair?

    • sErindeppity says:

      The heir that I have chosen for gen 6 might just have Henri’s hair color -coughs- and Sen’s eye color -coughs more- and is an amazing blend of their looks -coughs even more- I am 90 percent sure right now there will not be an heir vote.

      I think the Danevbies will be okay I mean they have been through some pretty weird stuff already xD Luna with all the Ancora stuff, Sebastian with the powers stuff… so I think they’ll be okay. Maybe. x] Kaylee will love it xD

      And EEEEEEEEE!!! -squeals and flails-

  16. Crazy chic says:

    *runs back and reads* oh my flipping fish sticks!!!

    Yay Henri is back!!!! Wonder what his father would do seeing him as a ghost. O_O

    Ooooo ghost babies!!!!!! Can’t wait for them, I will miss Henri’s human face though, he was growing on me with cuteness.

    Can’t wait for more!!

    • sErindeppity says:

      -giggles happily-
      o_O I’d imagine Dr. Laroche would be upset and happy and very confused. :I
      I will miss his human face too Dx but at least he is back. ^__^ -flails happily-

  17. shelllegacy says:

    ❤ YAY HENRI'S BACK!
    I knew you'd find a way to bring him back… or, at least I really hoped so. Ashe's story was sweet, and I'm glad Henri found Sunny. This means ghost babies? Maybe?? Oh, Jay will absolutely love this. I can almost see her busting down the door, but perhaps she's decided not to bother this gen anymore (I can dream, can't I?).
    *flails with happiness*
    Great chapter!

    • sErindeppity says:

      ^___^ I figured some people would be guessing I’d be bringing him back, one way or another 😉
      YEP GHOST BABIES! Hopefully. -coughs- I might have to uhhhhh cheat slightly if having babies regularly doesn’t give me at least one ghost baby. -has a big part of the plot based on them having a ghost baby- xD
      -flails as well-
      Nope sorry Jay is not out of the picture yet! 😀

  18. seraphaeli says:

    Just realized I never replied to this. Psh, what kind of a reader am I to not reply to one of the most happy-happy-dancy chapter in a while? But yeah, this chapter made me HAPPY. So happy! I had kinda hoped something like this would happen, but I wasn’t keeping my hopes up, but but but.. YAY HENRI. =D Yep. I am so glad and happy for this. And here I’d nearly forgotten about Ashe’s final wish and then poof! Here he is! I’m beginning to ramble and not make a lot of sense, so it’s probably best if I get back to my Japanese homework now.

    One last heart for good measure. ❤

    • sErindeppity says:

      Eeee I am glad you liked this so much. I loved writing it finally and am excited for the stuff that will be happening now. No more sadness–for a while, at least. XD The very original plot wasn’t like this (she’d end up with someone else) but as soon as I added in Henri I fell for him. I am glad. -flails- especially because gen 6 heir is soooooo amazing looking! (I think so, at least)
      I am grateful Tuf let me plot with her, about this -grins- And rambling is fine! 😀 good luck with your homework xD
      Yay hearts ❤

  19. girlwiththezebraprint says:

    YAAY! YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY! YAY!

    Henri’s face scares me, but HE’S BACK! YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!

  20. Wow, just wow, what an awesome twist!

  21. nestea7 says:

    Snap! Didn’t expect that. 😀 😀 😀

    • sErindeppity says:

      -grins- Bwaahahaha I am glad about that, I tried to make it a bit of a surprise 😉 I am grateful for Tuf letting me conspire with her so I could use Ashe as a buildup for the reveal.

  22. HENRI!!!!!! I was not expecting that to happen. I always thought it would be Jay. But he’s back 🙂 🙂 🙂 He’s finally back.

    • sErindeppity says:

      EEEEE -flails- I was so excited for this chapter haha it’s so great to have Henri back. Even though he was only gone for a couple chapters (though ten years in Sen’s life). He’s baaack~

  23. zefiewings says:

    That is not what I expected. But I like it.

  24. jonso says:

    Sweet and magical chapter. 😀 (Not that I didn’t already know that Henri would come back as a ghost. Since I’m reading from the future here. 😉 )

  25. yellowberries says:

    :O
    I…I’m speechless. This chapter almost knocked me backwards! I was NOT expecting that! xD Wow, that was amazing to read. I gasped out loud when Henri appeared. I was so shocked – I’m still shocked! I was expecting a story about Sen and her adopted child, but this is SO MUCH BETTER OMG. I can’t stop smiling! 😀

    • sErindeppity says:

      Ahhh! Glad you enjoyed it so much :3 I was so happy bringing Henri back into her life. ❤ I was going to do it anyway, but Tuf's story gave me a fun twist to it!!

  26. zefiewings says:

    re-reading and…thinking about Ash…from the future. When? AT what point in the Danivbie’s lives would Ash have been?And I also realize this establishes the existence of genies…but we haven’t seen any. I hope they show up at some point, it would be fun to see how they do them.
    \/ SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER \/
    I don’t know..with all the talk about the…situation with time, this suddenly felt like an important chapter somehow. I’m probably just being silly.

    • sErindeppity says:

      Unfortunately we have no idea xD because we didn’t really keep tabs on ages and when births and stuff were. Amour gen three is roughly around Danevbie gen two. So I guess Amour gen ten would be around Danevbie gen nine? Ish? But as much as I’d like to include some stuff in the stories it’s just not possible due to the inability to match up times.
      Plus there is something else going on that I can’t really go into but hopefully I’ll be able to explain in the thirteenth generation. But let’s just say it involves the fact that the Amours and Danevbies aren’t in the same universe 😉
