Orchid couldn't sleep! She tossed and turned until she was so wrapped up in the bedding, she had become a prisoner in her bed! All this movement, somehow didn't even cause Drew to stir one bit. For some reason, this annoyed her! How could he sleep knowing their world was going to be turned upside down, yet again, and of course, Greta was the author of this fine mess too! Orchid cursed the day that woman showed up on their doorstep! Although, if not for Greta's antics, she would probably not know Drew, and would not have Dilly, and that realization made her very sad. Her life was so rich and happy with Drew and her five wee winkers! She should have seen this coming, she was just too happy! She had always been an optimist, but since her 21st birthday, she had become quite the pessimistic, gloomy Gus! This thought made her laugh out loud! Her mom had poked fun at Jinks, when he got stuck in the marsh, and her and I had to rescue him before he was swallowed up by a gator! We were gathering herbs and I heard a lady screaming, Blanche heard it too, and weren't we surprised when we discovered it was no lady, but a sinking Jinks that had a gator headed straight for him. When he saw the two girls, his head lowered in defeat, he knew they would never let him live this down. He walked around pouting for a week, and mom called him a gloomy gus! Every now and then one of us would say, ("hey, who is this, and scream high pitched with flailing arms?) The other would say, " it's that screaming lady that we saved." We would roll on the floor laughing and Jinks would stick his bottom lip out, like a child, that just made it even funnier! Orchid looked at the clock and it was 5:45 a.m. A good time for Drew to get up and take her into the main strip of "What-Knot Island", and see this flim flam scam artist, "Greta", and this "identical" twin! Orchid tiptoed into the winkers room where she found all five were dressed and going down for breakfast. Orchid was shocked! It usually took her two hours just to wrangle them all in, and another two to get them all peeping ready! That is what Dilly called it when they dressed up. It usually meant they were going to be seen, (peeped upon) by public people! Today though, they were all dressed in their play clothes! They were all happy to see her! If there was something in the world better than being greeted by five little cuties like this and hugged and kissed all over, well bring it on! This was what she lived for everyday! This and That explained that Dilly had gotten everyone ready so mom and dad could sleep! Oh Dilly! You are such a big help and a wonderful big sister! Orchid said, " I need you to go in and wake up dad". They were out the door and squealing as they piled in the middle of Drew! "Wake up sleeping head" wake up, they all squealed in ear piercing volumes. Drew finally kissed them all, and sent them off to get breakfast. Orchid went to walk by and Drew pulled her to him. "That was quite sneaky, getting our winkers to wake me, knowing I could never say no to them, clever minx." Drew playfully teased that he had a lot to get done today, what were Orchids plans? You sir are taking me to meet this look a like! Drew's expression shifted! I have only seen pictures of your mom, and it blew me away, I'm afraid it might take a toll on your health. Orchid replied, "oh it will take a toll on someone's health, but it will not be mine." The winkers were fed and in the good, firm hands of Harmony, Jinks new bride! So Drew and Orchid headed to the main strip! Jinks and Parlay took turns watching over the two tied up in the room at the Inn. Jinks met Drew and Orchid outside the door. Orchid could tell Jinks had put on his protective surrogate father hat and he was nervous! Jinks kind of pulled her to the side, and said he could take care of everything, that she didn't have to deal with this, but he knew when he said it, there was no way, she was walking away without having had a few words with Greta, and meeting this mystery woman! Jinks opened the door then and told them to go on in! It was kind of dark after coming in from the sunlight, but Orchid could make out the shapes of two people! Someone pulled the curtains back and the light about blinded everyone! Gasps all around the room and a thud! Orchid had fainted, which had become her normal when she was stressed! Needless to say, she had been stressed a lot these past few years! As she woke, she could see the woman tied up in the corner and she absolutely was the exact replica of her mother! She sat up and asked the woman, "what is your name, do you know who I am?" My name is Bridget, and no. I do not know you, should I? Orchid then turned her stare toward Greta! What was your plan here Greta? Who is this woman? Jinks took the gag off then, and Greta started babbling! As she was jibber jabbing, the door opened and in walked Stanton! He hadn't noticed Bridget until she said, "now we got the makings of a great party, who are you, handsome?" Stanton kind of swayed on his feet, but Drew grabbed his elbow to steady him! Who...what...who...how..this can't be? Stanton could not believe his eyes and Orchid couldn't either. After total silence for about ten minutes, Bridget bellowed out, "can someone tell me what the hell is going on, anybody?" Orchid looked at Greta and said, "this is your one chance to tell the truth, depending on whether I believe you or not, will determine your fate, so make it Good, "grandma", let's hear it.". First thing Greta tried to get sympathy for never knowing she had another daughter, and how Frannie had robbed her of her little girl! She then tried to persuade us that she had always felt there was something missing! Orchid couldn't take any more! Listen up Greta! "Frannie did her a favor, or she would have been sold too! You've proven that you only saw her as another opportunity to take something that wasn't yours, and make her an accomplice in your wicked plan, you don't love her, you don't love anyone but yourself!" Orchid was so mad that she excused herself and went out to the courtyard. Drew was not far behind! Stanton just stared. Bridget finally broke the silence by asking Stanton, "so who are you in all this mess?" I'm Orchids father and I was in love with Blanche, your twin sister, it looks like." Bridget looked at Greta and asked, "what now old lady?" Orchid and Drew walked back in then, and Orchid said, "this is what's going to happen, listen up!"
