Six months later…
After Molly arrived with Prada for work, she and Jen sat down with coffee. “How’s the wedding planning going?” Jen asked. “Anything for me to do?”
“I think it’s going okay,” Molly answered. “The baby is due in March, so we thought a spring wedding would be great. Starting in June, Atlanta’s too damn hot. But for Marty and his family, April is very busy with Easter and all. It’s a big deal for them. We’re looking at a date in May.”
“May’s good,” Jen replied. “Should be nice weather and plenty of flowers. Did Marty find a new Best Man?” During another case, Jen and Molly discovered that Navada was a member of a White Supremacy hate group. (See The High Priests of Phinehas Case.)
“Yes, as a matter of fact. It turns out, his old battalion commander from Iraq was promoted to colonel and is being assigned as the head of the South Atlantic Division of the Corps of Engineers based in Atlanta,” Molly answered. “He should be here by the end of the month. Marty says he’s a great guy.”
“Super,” Jen said. “What about Bridesmaids?”
“I asked my sister to be one,” Molly answered.
“I thought you didn’t get along with your sister?” Jen pointed out.
“I don’t, but if I don’t include her, she’ll whine about it for the rest of my life.”
“She did help you when you were recovering,” Jen pointed out again. “You owe her.”
Don’t’ remind me,” Molly shot back. “I wanted to ask Anna, (See The Case of the Kidnapped Granddaughter) but I didn’t get around to it before she died. I’ll find someone to take her place. And this is neat; I asked Cleo to be a flower girl. She was so excited. Then she asked if Prada was also a flower girl. Can you imagine?”
“So, what did you do?”
“I haven’t even thought about it,” Molly said. “I think it’s a good idea. I discussed it with Marty, and he liked it too. So, Prada’s a flower girl.”
Jen turned around to see Prada sleeping on her bed. “Did you hear that, Prada? You’re a flower girl.” Prada lifted her head and looked at Jen and Molly.
“So, who else is a bridesmaid?” Jen asked.
“Well, I asked Dr. Yannic, our therapy group leader and Betty and Mary from the group,” Molly answered. “I still have to find a couple more, but there’s still time.”
“What about the groomsmen?” Jen asked.
“Are you kidding?” Molly shot back. “Marty has so many relatives in Georgia, it’ll be impossible not to offend someone.” Molly and Jen both laughed.
