Bear: "Come on, Jella... Tell us!"
Bernie: "I gotta say, you're a fast typist!"
Jella: "Hush you, two. I'm reading here."
Bear: "So? What did the "fortune teller" tweet about?"
Jella: *sighs* "Said mom and dad are over and people need to move on... and dad is with that singer who sang Peacock... and doesn't like dad."
Bernie: *chokes* "What?!? No one hates dad!"
Bear: *rolls eyes* "So, how did she get all that information?"
Jella: *serious face* "She probably has a Magic 8 Ball."
Bernie: "Uncle CJ has one and it says Mom and Dad are getting engaged within 2 months; getting married within 8 months before the baby's born."
Bear: "I don't get it. How can daddy be with peacock girl when he's totally into mommy?
Jella: "They don't know that. They chose to believe a version of dad who doesn't love mom."
Bernie: *guffaws* "Right!"
Bear: *contemplates* "Wait...Do we call Uncle CJ uncle or auntie?"
Jella: *thinks seriously* "Well, that's a good question, Bear."
Bernie: *thinks deeply, too* "Well if Uncle CJ is Auntie; so what should I call Alana?"
Jella: "Hello? We're supposed to be researching here!"
Bear: "Sorry, Jella. My bad. So, what about the Krisbians and Robsessed?"
Bernie: *double fp* "Even I know they don't want mom and dad to be together!"
Bear: "I don't understand the hate."
Jella: "Oh, I do. Completely."
Bernie: "And how about the so-called writers and bloggers?"
Jella: "They have sources."
Bernie: "Bear, are you talking to them again?"
Bear: *blushes* "Well, I was trying to correct their errors so I barked and barked but they got it all wrong."
Jella: "I told you they'd rather write what people want to read so their story will sell."
Bear: "Who do you think their sources are?"
Jella: "I heard daddy told mommy that they probably talk to their imaginary friends." *ponders* "Maybe we should write are own blog."
Bernie: *Laughs* "You know damn well, Jella, that the ninnies and the crazies will do anything and everything to bring us down."
Bear: "I heard Uncle CJ said..." *halts* "Uncle or auntie?"
Bernie: "Yeah, Jella? Uncle or Auntie? Because he is made like dad but acts like mom?"
Jella: "Just call him CJ, jeez!"
Bear: "Well, CJ wants to shoot them all with his neon water gun."
Jella: *shudders* "Oh, I hate those. That's a great idea! Go get mommy's credit card and let's order lotsa water gun!"
Bear: "I'm on it!!!"
Bernie: "I'll help! I'll get dad's"
***five minutes later***
Bear: "I didn't get it."
Bernie: *shakes head* "Nah. I didn't get dad's either."
Jella: "What? "Why the hell not?"
Bear: "Daddy is busy with mom."
Jella: "Oh, they're talking. Yeah. They're doing that a lot lately. Reconnecting's the word for it."
Bernie: "I get that. They're really connected, Jella."
Bear: "And I don't know how they understand each other, though."
Jella: "What do you mean?"
Bear: "Well, dad said, "Unggggg..." and mom responded, "Ahhhhhhh."
Bernie: "Then, dad disconnected; then reconnected."
Bear: "And dad said, "Oooohhh...." and mom said, "Mmmmmm...."
Bernie: "Is that Brittish talk? Like another langauge? Dad's British after all"
Jella: *closes laptop* "Well, kids, our work here is done!"
Bernie: "No! How about our research."
Bear: "We're supposed to be helping!"
Jella: "Nah. Mom & Dad know what they're doing. You'll see. This, too shall pass."
Bear: "But how about the false reports and the hate and the lies..."
Jella: "NO WORRIES, KIDDOS. IT's ALL GOOD!!!"
