Chapter 1: The Bad and Good News
In the underworld, a demon is walking up to their leader's door and knocks. After getting the answer to walk in, he did and walked up to Katori. "Sir, I mean no disrespect but all of us have been wondering why we have been waiting so long to attack?"
"If we don't wait, they will be waiting for us whether they know it or not. I don't expect that to make since to you so don't worry and trust that I know what I am doing. Tell the others that the attack will be soon. Actually, tell them that it will be tonight, we attack the guardians' kids."
"Why would we attack the kids?" The demon asked confused.
"Mey, we attack the kids because; they are to be the new guardians. I will not allow that to happen. After the kids are gone however, we will attack the current guardians. I only want four right now to attack."
"Yes sir, I'm on it." The demon ran out the doors happily and down to the alter ruins where Katori had the stone made, many years ago. "I need three of you to come with me." Mey looked around and chose the three she wanted. "You three, come here!" The three demons ran up to her and knelt down on one knee and bowed their heads in respect for the higher class demon. "You three will come with me to attack the guardians' kids, afterward we will return, do you understand?" They nodded. "Good, let's go get ready then."
Back on earth in Heatherfield, the current guardians and their kids are all at the park having a picnic when Will felt the heart vibrate. Will jumped up and pulled out the heart. "Will, what's up, and why did you pull out the heart?" The four girls asked. Will showed them what the heart was doing. In the heart showed a picture of four demons and heard the demons talking.
"Tonight we attack the guardians' family, so we must be prepared to fight them off not that the guardians will be a problem at their age." One of the demons said.
"We need to leave and go to New York again. We need to find a place for our kids to stay while we fight them off." The five girls gathered up their families and left Heatherfield that evening.
In New York City, Jake and Rose were in their living room watching T.V. when Rose finally decided to tell Jake the good news. "Jake, we need to talk." Rose said gently.
"Sure, what do you want to talk about?" Jake asked seriously.
"Jake, you remember a few weeks ago when I started getting sick, and we thought that it may have just been the flue." Jake nodded and started to worry but then shrugged it off. "Well, I found out why, I just hadn't told you yet."
Jake got worried again and had to say something. "You're not dying, are you?"
Rose laughed a little and then continued. "No Jake, I am not dying, but I am pregnant."
"When did you figure this out?" Jake asked getting excited.
"I figured it out last week but I didn't want to say something until I was sure." Rose said explaining why she didn't say anything earlier. "The question is how Ashley and Megan will take the news; after all, they have been the only kids for thirteen years."
"I don't know how they will take it, but we do need to tell them." Rose knows he is right and hates the thought of her kids avoiding her. "I bet it won't be as bad as you're making it out to be."
"You're right Jake, for the second time now, I hope." Rose said nervously "Ashley, Megan; could you two come down for a minute, your father and I need to talk to you about something!" Rose yelled from the bottom of the stairs.
The two girls ran down the stairs and jumped onto the other couch. "So mom, what do you want to talk to us about?" Ashley asked.
"Well, what do you think of having a baby brother or sister?" Rose asked.
"That would be so cool to have a younger sibling. Why do you ask?" Megan asked her mom although she knew already.
"Well, I'm pregnant and I didn't really want you to hate me because of it, though I should know better than to think you wouldn't be ok with it. It's just that, you two have been the only ones for thirteen years, so I wasn't sure how you would take it." Rose said relieved that her kids still like her.
"Really, Rose, I don't get why you were so freaked out, but then again, I know that you; in a way; never really had a family so I can understand why." Jake said as he wrapped his arms around her.
"You two head up to bed, ok." Rose said. Then the two girls got up and ran upstairs happily.
"So Rose, what do you say we watch some movies, as long as they aren't those chick flick movies." Jake said trying to get his point across that he doesn't want a chick flick.
"Don't worry; we won't watch any chick flicks. How about we watch a kung fu movie?"
Then Fu dog walked into the room. "Someone say Fu?" Fu said shocking the two on the couch.
"Fu, what in the world are you doing over here?" Jake asked annoyed that Fu just walked in and snuck up on them.
"Well, Jake, I was kicked out of gramps shop for being a pig with the food so"
Fu was cut off by Jake. "No Fu, you aren't going to eat our food because when you do, you don't stop which is why I regret taking you to that carnival with Ashley and Megan six years ago. You went to the pie eating contest and you won but you never stopped. I just don't understand how you can eat more than elephant." Jake said complaining to Fu.
"Please Jake, I could eat an elephant." Fu corrected Jake.
"That is precisely why you don't get to eat our food. Now go to bed Fu." Fu walked away upset and Rose and Jake cuddled together on the couch.
