IT'S BEEN MANY YEARS SINCE BILL AND JO HARDING SPLIT UP AND FILED FOR DIVORCE.

NOW BILL'S BACK WITH A FINACEE, GETTING THE DIVORCE PAPERS FROM HIS WIFE.

Melissa said to Bill, "Um, and honey. Are you sure she's gonna be here?" Bill nodded and continued to drive. Finally, he answered her.

"If I know Jo, she's already dragged her entire department into the field. Ah, hell, a day like today, it's to be expected. She forgets everything except her work."

AND HE'S SEEING HIS OWN DAUGHTER FOR THE FIRST TIME IN YEARS.

"Hey, Natalie." The man said. Then, she recognized him. It was her dad, Bill. Of course, he was only here for the divorce papers. Not for her or Jo.

"Hey Bill." Natalie said. Feeling awkward, she looked over at her mom who was reading through the last page of the pack of the papers.

EVERYTHING ABOUT HIM IS UNFAMILAR EXCEPT FOR HIS BLUE-GREY EYES

"Boy oh boy. New job, new truck, new wife......It's like a whole new you" Jo said sarcastically.

BILL'S DESIGN OF DORORTHOY WAS BUILT BY HIS OLD STORM-CHASING TEAM

One day. I'll give you one day. Whether she flies or not I'm gone." Bill states.

WILL BILL EVEN MARRY MELISSA

"You know, I can't compete with this. I don't even know where to start!"

IF HE'S STILL IN LOVE WITH JO?

"You know what; I think we've seen enough!" Jo says. Bill smiles at her and leans and kisses her.

AND THE REST OF THE GANG

Bill Harding drove his red Dodge Ram down a dirt road. In the passenger seat was his fiancée, Melissa Reeves. They had been dating for a while now that they were getting married; Bill needed to get the divorce papers from his ex-wife, Jo Harding.

Melissa said to Bill, "Um, and honey. Are you sure she's gonna be here?" Bill nodded and continued to drive. Finally, he answered her.

"If I know Jo, she's already dragged her entire department into the field. Ah, hell, a day like today, it's to be expected. She forgets everything except her work."

Melissa saw his anxious expression. He was seeing his soon-to-be ex wife and his daughter, Natalie, who he hasn't seen in years. She hasn't even met Natalie yet.

"You're nervous about seeing her, aren't you?" Melissa stated.

"Nervous? No. Why, do I look nervous?" Bill asked. He was nervous. Who wouldn't be? His daughter wouldn't speak to him.

Melissa started to shake her head but then she saw her fiancé's face. It was nervous. "No. Well, yeah you do, a little." Then she changed the subject. "Does Natalie know about the engagement?"

Bill shrugged. "I haven't talked to her or Jo in a while. So, I'm guessing she doesn't."

"Jo said she signed the papers, right?" She asked. Bill didn't know. Last time he talked to Jo, she said she had.

"That's what she said." He told her. Wasn't she there when the conversation between him and Jo took place?

"You don't think so?" Melissa asked worriedly. The marriage ceremony was coming up and she didn't want to reschedule the date once again.

"No," Bill smiled. "I think so. Give me a kiss" Melissa leaned over and kissed the side of his mouth and Bill continued to drive.

Natalie Jane Harding was an only child but she loved it. Her mom, Jo Harding, chased twisters along with her research/storm chasing team: Dusty, Rabbit, Beltzer, Haynes, Sanders, Laurence, Preacher, and Joey.

She was now 17 years old and has been out chasing storms with her mom since she was 12. Her dad, Bill Harding, had left when she had turned 11. Natalie had dirty blonde hair and blue-grey eyes. Like her father, she was stubborn and like her mother, she loved science. Everyone called her NJ unless she was in trouble.

As the sun shone, she laid in the back of her blue truck. Her hair fell into her eyes, which were closed. Dusty had told her about the papers. It was sad that if she wanted to know anything she had to go to Dusty or Rabbit.

"Oh, fuck! This thing is useless!" Jo yelled suddenly which scared Natalie. Her eyes shot open and she sat up. She saw her mom on top of a van, messing around with a Doppler-Radar.

"Sorry, Jo." She heard Beltzer say. Then it started moving. "Wait, wait, wait. Beltzer!" She banged her foot on the roof. "That's good. Give me a reading!"

Beltzer got of the van, grumbling. "Okay, boss lady, hold your horses." He went over to his lap-top that was connected to the radar. "Which way do you want it, Jo?"

Jo, who was sitting on her feet, stood up and looked at the sky. Then she told Beltzer, "Looks like the dry line has stalled. Give me a sector scan west, northwest, look at mid-levels for rotation and increase the PRF."

Natalie rolled her eyes and went over to Dusty. He was sitting in his van listening to 70's music and watching weather forecasts. Dusty, aka Dustin, was the dad in Natalie's life. But, he was more fun and way more awesome. Whenever she got detention, he covered for her.

"If I mistreat you girl," He was singing. "Sho' don't mean no harm....." Then, he noticed Natalie. "Oh, hey NJ." She gave a small wave. She usually visited everyone when she was bored.

Next, she visited Rabbit and Laurence. Rabbit was giving Laurence a lecture about how we're not supposed to fold the maps. But, roll the maps instead. Only Laurence folded them, although he denied it.

Nothing seemed interesting so she walked over to her mom who was trying to get something that was under her truck. When Natalie got over there, she put her hair in a bun, reached under the truck, and pulled out her mom's pack of gum.

"Thanks kid." She smiled. Jo never called her daughter Natalie; it was either, kid or NJ. But, Natalie didn't mind. She was at home chasing tornados. Where the lab was nature.

Then she heard Rabbit yell, "Hey, I don't believe it! Who is that handsome devil?"

"Gentlemen" She heard another voice say. It sounded familiar.

"The Extreme! IT'S THE EXTREME!!" Dusty yelled. Natalie headed back over to her truck and laid in the back again. She closed her eyes. Then she felt someone jump on the back.

"NJ, where are the papers?" Mom asked me. Behind her, was a man. He had dark brown hair and blue-grey. Just like Natalie's.

"Glove department." She grumbled then she stood up. Natalie walked over to her mom's yellow truck and got the divorce papers from the glove department. She tossed them at her mom, who caught them with no difficulty.

"Hey, Natalie." The man said. Then, she recognized him. It was her dad, Bill. Of course, he was only here for the divorce papers. Not for her or Jo.

"Hey Bill." Natalie said. Feeling awkward, she looked over at her mom who was reading through the last page of the pack of the papers. Natalie knew her mom avoided that page from keeping the divorce final. Jo had by no means stopped loving Bill, even though he stopped loving her.

"What are you doing?" Bill asked her. Jo turned her head toward him and answered, "Can I read it first?" Bill sighed once again. What was the rush, Natalie thought. Oh yea, he probably didn't want to be here.

"No! It's the same as it was in December." Jo then responded lying. She had read every page a few times over, some even out loud. "I didn't read it in December."

"Christ," Bill sighed. "Would you just sign it so we can get out of here? Please?" Who were we? Oh yea, probably a girlfriend or something.

"We?" Jo asked understanding. "She's here?"

"Yes, she's here, she's over with Dusty. Now would you please sign the document?" Jo took this as a solution from getting out of signing the divorce papers.

"You left her with Dusty? What's the matter with you?" Jo left the papers and started to walk over to Dusty's van. Natalie gave her dad a confused look then she walked after her mom. Bill, after grabbing the papers, followed too.

"The suck zone- it's the point- basically at which the twister sucks you up, but it's not that technical therefore obviously, but-"Dusty was saying before he got interrupted by Jo.

"Hi." Jo said. "I'm Jo Harding." She held out her hand for the black-haired woman to shake. "Oh hello," She said, getting up. "Nice to meet you." The woman shook her hand.

"Bill just told me the happy news." Jo said. Wait, Natalie looked at the woman's hand. It had an engagement ring on her ring finger.

"YOUR GETTING MARRIED?!?" She yelled just as Bill walked over with the papers in hand.

"That." Jo said, hiding her hurt. "It's happy news." Natalie looked at her mom disbelievingly. The mom she knew would sometimes stay up all night crying that her life was pointless since her dad was dead and Bill left.

" I guess, uh, it probably seems kind of sudden." The woman said, fidgeting.

Jo said, "Seems sudden?"

"Dude, you takin' the vows? That's sweet!" Dusty said. He had always avoided girls when they were sad, depressed, or angry. But, he knew that Jo had feelings for Bill.

"Well, we- we just wanted to get it done before Billy started his new job." The woman said. Billy? Seriously, thought Natalie.

"That's right, that's right, right, right, right. Weatherman!" Bill then replied, offended, "What?" Then Jo said innocently, "What?" Then they got into a small argument. It wasn't as big as it usually was but still…

Then, someone's phone rang. Natalie looked around and saw the black-haired woman answered her phone. "Dr. Melissa Reeves here? Uh-huh?" So, her name was Melissa, thought Natalie.

Natalie spotted a cherry red Dodge Ram and walked over to it. She heard footsteps behind her. When she turned around, Bill and Jo were behind her.

"New truck?" Jo said. "That's right." Bill said. Natalie hated to be around them when they talked. It was always awkward.

"Boy oh boy. New job, new truck, new wife......It's like a whole new you" Jo said sarcastically. Natalie just walked away. It was very awkward being around them. She went back to her truck, stepped in, and listened to music.
