The entire Brooklyn House was sitting at the table out on the terrace, enjoying a lovely meal of steak, mashed potatoes, and green beans. Everything was normal. Or was it? Something strange was going on between Carter and Zia. They were more on their toes than I have ever seen them before. Zia looked like someone could pop out at her at anytime, and Carter stared at Zia like she was about to pull out a gun at any second. It was weird.

I decided to ignore them and focused on Walt instead. He ate his potatoes really cute. I know, I sound 13, but it is true, he eats them really cute.

Before everyone got up to leave. Carter stood up and cleared his throat.

"Excuse me, everybody?" he began. All eyes were on him.

"Zia and I..." Zia stood up next to him and he wrapped one arm around her. "Zia and I have an announcement to make."

Hmmmm? What could this be all about? That cheating thing that happened a few weeks ago? Were they getting a divorce? Nah, why would his arm be around her then?

"Well..." Zia said. Then looked at Carter.

"Spit it out already!" Shelby yelled. She is like a mini version of me. I feel so proud.

Finally, Zia took a breath and said, "I'm pregnant."

Everybody froze. Oh my gods! Zia is pregnant! Eww, I can't believe she slept with Carter. I mean, I guess I sort of knew they would, since they are married and all, but... OK this has become a very awkward recording.

Jaz was the first to say something. Well, if you count screaming as saying something. All the girls swarmed around Zia, wanting to feel her stomach, or asking her questions. The guys came over to Carter and whacked him on the back, and saying congratulations.

After getting over the initial shock, I joined the girl's. Alyssa was trying to speak to the baby, telling it to become an Earth elementalist. (Alyssa was the only Earth Elementalist at Brooklyn House.)

"Boy or girl?" I asked Zia.

"We won't know for a while." She replied.

"I thinks it is gonna be a boy." I said, placing my hand on her flat belly.

"Hey, you're not fat!" Anika, part of the newest generation of ankle biters, pointed out.

Zia laughed and said, "No, I won't get fat for a while, hopefully." Carter came up behind her and wrapped his arms around her.

"You'll never be fat. You'll just have a larger stomach than usual." Carter smirked.

"Are you implying that I already have a large stomach?" Zia asked playfully. Carter laughed and kissed her.

"Come on guys, you don't have to make a twin right now. Not in front of the children!" Walt joked. Carter and Zia turned beet red, then Carter punched Walt in the arm.

Some people may claim their family is amazing, but no family can beat that of Brooklyn House.

Soooooooooooooooooooo... Good or bad. I know it was short but I wrote this at ten o'clock at night so bear with me here. Anyways... REVIEW PER FAVORE! GRAZI! Ciao!
