Surprise Guests

It was a reunion of sorts--almost the entire museum staff attended today's picnic lunch, even the crotchety old Helga, the maid. Only Walter was absent. Clovis watched the group, smiling. Roger, who was standing nearby, joined him.

"It's a bit surprising to learn that Gaius and Marcy married," he said, looking at the young couple, who were holding hands, exchanging whispered words.

"Yes, but they fit well together," Clovis replied.

"Two redheads...I bet there'll be fireworks if they ever have a disagreement."

"I doubt they'll fight much," Clovis said with a laugh. "Gaius will most likely do everything Marcy tells him to."

At that moment, Rosemary,  who sat with Marco a few feet away from her sister,  stood abruptly and spoke to Helga, handing her son over to the woman's care before starting towards the woods. Marco rose and followed her.

"What about those two?" Roger asked. "Do you think they'll marry as well?"

Clovis, who was watching Helga with Rosemary's infant boy, Henry, intently, didn't reply at once. A moment later, he turned his attention back to Roger. "Anything is possible," he said.

"But you don't think so."

"No, their fates follow different courses." Clovis started to say more, but then stopped. "Well, I'll be damned," he said abruptly, as old drunken Walter and a woman carrying a small box entered the clearing.

"The gang's all here," Roger said as Clovis stepped away to greet his old friend.

Today's artwotk was created by Claude Monet (1840-1926).
