Jessamyn always joked that they'd get married when they grew up. At those picnics she used to love... just sitting there with the rest of us, basking in the sun and the companionship, shredding blades of grass and watching them run. She'd watch Capri, all long red hair and skinny legs, chase Kieran, and she'd grin at Donna and roll her eyes and speculate on what Donna might demand as a dowry.

She was only half kidding. I don't know how many people knew that. She would plan things out in her head - sending Capri to the Sanctuary for a few years, then to college. Then the wedding. She planned her fade from the limelight as her daughter grew. She wanted to be a grandma. She wanted Capri to always be as happy as she was right then, when she was tackling Kieran and tickling him.
