Coco was busy being in the kitchen. Chip walks in and the room goes quiet. He has been acting very odd recently, ever since looking into Fuji San's Well to be precise!
Chip: "Hi everyone".
Chip sits down ant the table and moves the family recipe book aside.
Chip: "This is Grandmothers secret recipe!"
Coco: "Yes dear, I'd thought I'd teach it Jasmine and Rocket before, well you know whilst I have the time". Maybe they can make apple pie when I'm 'busy'" - she winks and smiles at Chip.
The children look puzzled.
Chip: "I see"
Coco: "Next you need to pour the...."
Coco: "I understand that some of you may not want to share what we each saw in Fuji San's Well but I need to share what your father and I have seen".
Chip: "No don't say it, maybe it won't happen!"
Jasmine and Rocket stared at their father. They had never seen him act like this.
Coco: "You are the King! Now stop being silly and lets get this place sorted out ready for
Chip: "Don't say it, I can't even bare to hear it, its horrible, i like things the way they are, everything's going to change".
Chip thinks about what he saw in Fuji San's Well. He knows Coco has been feeling sick and thinks the worst.
Chip: "I can't cope"
He grabs the recipe book, bursts into tears, drops the book on the floor and runs away, accidentally knocking over his chair in his haste.
Coco: "I really don't see what all the drama is about. Triplets will be fun- you'll see!"
The children cheer as they are so excited with the news.
Coco: "Now I'm going to need you both to help out a little bit more with chores please. There will be a lot of changes around here. To start with I have a surprise for each of you in your bedrooms, I think we're all going to need our own space too at times".
Rocket: "What's happening to Dad?".
Coco: "I think he's in shock- don't worry he'll come around".
The children rush off to see the surprises in their bedrooms.
Chip has also gone to his bedroom. He is angry, scared and sad. He thinks that Coco is dying and is confused that she is so calm about the situation.
Hazel sees her new sewing machine. She is super happy.
Rocket has a new flat screen TV fixed onto his bedroom wall- perfect for watching his favourite TV shows on.
Coco goes in to talk to Chip.
Coco: "Everything's going to be fine my love".
Chip: "Everything was perfect. I don't want to lose you"
Coco was started to get a bit annoyed with Chips behaviour
Coco: "It's going to be another adventure. You're not going to lose me, you're just going to have to get used to me not being around as much. I'm going to get a maid and a chef to help out with things as I won't be able to and you'll be extra busy too I assume".
Chip cried and cried and cried.
Coco shouted "Chip this has got to stop. Now put those shoes on and lets go and buy a pram or two!!"
Chip instantly figures out that Coco is pregnant, but this gives him just as much reason to worry. He decides to bottle it up and hope for the best".
Chip: "How many little beds will we need" he smiles
Chip nearly falls over and they both laugh.
Coco: "Did you see triplets in Fuji San's Well too?"
Chip: "It just took me a while to see it clearly. I'm so sorry for the way I've been acting, I was confused. Now lets go and have another adventure".
Coco: "1,2,3" she says in Coconut's voice
Chip: "Oh I'm finally getting it".
