    Yeah, he might be trying to be responsible, but he's going about it in the wrong way just like no-good dads often do.

    I agree! He also is the type of toxic man that traps women by getting them pregnant, making them more reliant on him. A pattern I see all too often at the women's shelter here. I am interested to see how his relationship with his ex wife and ex girlfriend develop.

    I'm sure at some point we'll see a change in heart and attitude, but of course getting there is where the story is, he he he. *pops more popcorn*

    Episode 22: Gabriella's Last Day

    Nine months later, Milagro Santos was born. Watergate gave her a week after Milagros' birth to pack up. She knew she had to say goodbye.

    "Milagro, don't be fooled by your plum father."

    "I should've been smarter about my choices in life. I don't want you to grow up with me, or find out the dirty secrets later." Gabriella cries. "I promise I'll come back for you, I promise!"

    "You are my little miracle...."

    Episode 23: Ashley and Lil Mami Come To Town

    Later on, Angel and Gabriella found a reasonably priced high rise apartment with potential in the city of Los Angeles. They needed to a place to stay since Watergate took over the place they both used to call home. In need of advice, Gabriella calls on her younger sister.

    "Geez, Gabriella. Why didn't you tell me that this place wasn't safe for toddlers?"

    29cnxh0.png

    "Sorry, Ashley, this was the best I could do. I don't have time to toddler proof everything for Lil Mami."

    "You know I'm just playing with you!"

    dmvij9.png

    "I know, I know, but I honestly feel like I could've done better."

    "Yeah, you could've. Did you forget what kind of job your boyfriend has." Ashley whispers to her.

    "No, I didn't.... I just-"

    "What?"

    ri965i.png

    "I told him to quit doing business in the streets. I want to have a family, and he can't put his children in danger with that."

    "Wow. I'm shocked, honestly. I didn't know you had it in you! You've done good."

    23vlpqg.png

    "Now, would you like to step inside my humble home?"

    Ashley smiles at her sister and says, "I'd be delighted."

    I used to hate Gabriella, but she is really maturing.

    Episode 24: The Kiss

    2qw0u2v.jpg

    "Let's catch up with each other," Watergate pauses. "How's life looking for you today?"

    98siet.png

    "Well, ever since we shared that kiss as kids, it's been great." he laughs. "I was always afraid to admit my true sexual preference, and that opened the door for me."

    "It was just a dare, Russell." Watergate adds. "I mean, it wasn't that serious to me... But it's good that it worked out for you."

    2yzhco0.png

    "Is everything in the magazines true about you?" Russell asks.

    "In what sense?"

    "They you're pretty good looking in real life. I'd like to hope that's true." he smiles.

    1gni9s.png

    "You must be blind if you can't see this piece of handsomeness."

    "News flash! My contacts don't have the zoom effect."

    "Cornnnyyyyyy!"

    Together, they laugh, and head upstairs to further discuss things.

    "Russell, I have something to tell you,"

    "What's up?"

    "Well...."

    They look like twins with the same colored sweater and haircut! Weird.

    So...Watergate MUST come out of the closet now. That might make his estranged wife accept her fate a bit better. I wonder what will happen from here? Such twists and turns!

    @pammiechick Lol I realized they had the same color shirt while I was writing the story, but I was too lazy to re do it. Stay tuned!

    Episode 25: Gabriella, Time IS TICKING!

    Inside her apartment, she discussed important issues with Ashley. Most importantly, how to get her daughter back.

    2m4204j.png

    "I know this might really weird that I'm reaching out to my younger sister for toddler advice, but you're the only person I know that has one!"

    "It's fine, It's fine." Ashley. "I'll always be here to help you in your time of need. I'm not judging you either."

    rjf7up.png

    "I don't know how to get Milagro back, but I want to."

    "You should sort things out with Watergate," Ashley suggests. "I've been reading the magazines, and he's taking care of her really well."

    "I doubt that! He's been a plum father to all his previous children. Why would he so nice to this one?"

    "Well, maybe because this one was made from love." she laughs.

    "I didn't love him...." Gabriella says sadly. "I feel bad about that,"

    "But he loved you! With all his heart, I assume. That child reminds him of you. I bet you."

    "Whatever you say," Gabriella laughs.

    I can't wait for when she talks to Mr. Watergate. His personal life seems so different now.

    Mr. Watergate has a pen pal - what?

    That's right! The algorithm at the Pen Pal Project has matched Mr. Watergate with Meadow McCumber, a young mother looking for advice in caring for her recently adopted daughter. This should be interesting!

    Here's Meadow's first letter to Mr. Watergate.

    It was a glitch! At least she finds it therapeutic to write to him! :)

    (Also, kudos to @ilovebunnys65 ! It was her idea that Jena be Pakistani, and it's working out perfectly! Yay!)

    Episode 26: To Meadow McCumber

    Hello Meadow,

    I'm very sorry for not replying sooner. I went to the beach with my youngest daughter, Milagro, yesterday to get away from technology. By the time I saw your message, it was late, and I was tired. I really appreciate the fact that you chose me for advice. Not too many people do that.... I wonder why? Hahahaha. Since you included photos in your letter, I thought it might be a good idea for me do so as well. Jena is super adorable by the way!! I love toddlers.

    I tend to joke around a lot, so please disregard me when I'm not being serious. Wait, that doesn't make any sense. Disregard me? Who would ever do that? ;)

    2yy42kg.png

    I look so crossed eyed in this pic.... Why did I keep this pic????

    Here are some key things to know about our little tots, I'll elaborate later:
    • Toddlers like to repeat things they hear. Jena could be speaking in another language. Milagro has said things that her mother said, I shall not reveal.... I scolded her, and I haven't heard her say them for a while, so I think It's all good at the moment.
    • They often act like they're on birth control. Meaning, very emotional. But you've got to get used to it! The hormones are developing. It's like pre adolescence but temper tantrums. Ok, this might be the worst way of explaining it, but it will all make sense once you finish this letter.
    • FOOD, they love food! And I sure love fried chicken.


    Toddlers are very impressionable, and remember Google Translate is like the bestest friend of all time. If she saws something you don't understand, try recording her voice. Mobile apps can tell you what language something is, or even what the song is. I think that's pretty neat... Back in my day phones had strings on em, and you couldn't be on the computer at the same time! Dang... Those were the days.... I know that's a very unprofessional sentence I just wrote, but I wanted to say it in simpler terms. In addition to that, they can be very moody.

    Usually because it's something that they want. For example, food, a nap, or a toy. Speaking of food, toddlers love food. All my daughters loved to do at that age was eat. And of course they'll have their favorites. Be sure to try giving them their favorite food at least once a week, but not too much that they get spoiled. That's no bueno. No bueno means no good in Spanish in case you had no idea.

    I would love to hang out with you someday. We could have a playdate with our toddlers, and discuss various matters, if you feel like doing so. I think it's really brave of you to go ahead and adopt a child from a bad background.

    Kudos to you, Meadow!

    @ilovebunnys65 OH. MY. PLUM! I'm laughing so hard right now! *danger, Will Robinson!*

    (I think that Meadow is going to find him very handsome! Oh, Crum-a-Rama!)

    Hahahaha! LOL! Oh, boy.

    (That was really well-written, too, by the way. It sounds just like Mr. WaterLOO. And! How cute is Milagro!)
