Jessie grew up watching; Zuri, Ravi, Emma and Luke grow up and mature into teens and preteens. She enjoyed her job and she loved helping the kids along side Bertram of course. However something unstoppable happened only a year ago, something Jessie knew wasn't right and decided to keep to her self.
Zuri is now ten Ravi eleven, Luke sixteen, and Emma seventeen meaning Jessie is now twenty. There is a four year difference between Jessie and Luke, and believe me when I say it Jessie knows. However she can't help her feelings. Over the years she has seen Luke grow and hit an amazing growth spurt in his teenage years. He was no longer the freckled little boy with a disobedient attitude. He was the freckled man with a disobedient attitude.
Map of My Heart
Zuri was still into make believe friends however she had real ones as well, Ravi got over Mr. Kipling and started hanging out with friends his age as well as Zuri and his mutual friends since they went to the same school. Emma and Luke were both in high school now, Luke in grade ten Emma in grade eleven. They had mutual friends as well as their own. Life was good for the Ross children.
Jessie realized when Luke got into high school his crush on her had started to fade. She didn't know if she should feel relieved or hurt, because she realized when he got into high school she started to fall for him. Luke was nearly six feet which was an average height compared to the guys at his high school the tallest standing at six foot eight. Luke was also more toned and muscular due to the fact in his freshmen year he was teased and called scrawny, he took up weight room and football. It did him good.
Ravi wasn't as big as his older brother, he was only eleven but he was already gaining height; already five foot seven. The same height as Jessie. Ravi was into basketball though, he learned about the sport when he was in grade six. It took him a long time but he finally learned the sport really well. Emma liked soccer though she would never let her friends see her play because she wants to be a super model like her mother Christina, she played it. Emma was taller than Jessie by an inch, five foot eight. Zuri was the shortest of them all, five foot two though she didn't mind at all.
When Luke reached high school she remembered he came home and went straight to find her. He was smiling broadly and stood in front of her for two minutes before actually voicing any type of words, "She's not creepy anymore!" Jessie didn't understand who was not creepy? "Creepy Connie, she changed. We're dating." With that tiny bit of information Jessie felt hatred towards the girl and never knew why, it was that night she realized she always did like Luke and the attention he gave her, she was just playing hard to get and now knowing he was interested in other girls it made her seethe with jealousy, but she knew he was too young for her and she knew her work would soon be no longer needed because the children were growing and soon she'd need to find a new job. Away from the Ross family.
Of course Jessie put up a front as if she were happy for the two and she did damn well at that, but she wanted to pummel the stupid sixteen year old female for stealing her Luke, yes, her Luke away from her. A scowl grew on Jessie's face as she walked into the kitchen to find Bertram making dinner, she didn't care she sat there and thought about her and Luke.
It was November, the family would be going to Denver, Colorado for Christmas vacation and she could only wonder if Luke would want to bring Cree- Connie along.
