Rose and Shannon were actively trying to have a baby and they finally succeeded. With the lost of their daughter they wanted to have maybe two more just in case. The couple was unsure if that would happen though because Rose wasn't as young as she use to be.
"Hello lady Aliss."
"Hey Young Isaias."
Isaias knew he would be a young man soon and would need to find a wife to continue his family line. He fancied Lady Aliss but he didn't have high hopes.
Pregnancy didn't slow Rose down one bit, she was doing much better almost a year after her daughters death and she had a lot of catching up to do.
First order of business was to find a family pet again, Rose had noticed so many strays around the settlement she decided to take one in. She would serve the family well in these dark times.
By the end of year 501 things were looking up, it wasn't all doom and gloom. There were moments of peace and quiet that nobody took for granted because no one knew how long they would last.
