Sam Uley

*chuckling* I sure will

Tiffany Call-Black

 Can I put you and Leah to work?

Leah  Clearwater

*looks at Tiffany* That's why I'm here *smiles*

Sam Uley

*looking down at Shay* Can you sit here and play with your barbies while Daddy helps Tiffany?

Tiffany Call-Black

We will need to rearrange the tables. One by the door for gifts and cards, two for food and one for desserts. The others can go back in the store room.

Sam Uley *she nods and sits * Thank you sweetheart *looking up at Tiffany* put me to work

Sam Uley

I'll get those set up

Tiffany Call-Black

There are smaller tables and chairs in there for people to sit at; I guess we can set all of those up. I really don't now how many people will be here.

~Watches as Sam and Leah maneuver tables and chairs. Gets out the table cloths and calls Shay over. ~ Can you help Aunt Tiff by putting one of these on each table?

Sam Uley

*winking at Shay as she goes over and helps Tiffany with table cloths

Tiffany Call-Black

~Moves around the room, spreading out the table cloths after Shay sets them on the tables. ~

Leah Clearwater

You're doing such a good job, Shay! *smiles at her*

Sam Uley

She sure is! *finishing setting up the tables* I have some things to bring in from the car, where can I set the goodies Tiff?

Tiffany Call-Black

~Points to a table in the corner for the desserts Emily sent. ~ I think that table will be good. Leah? Can you put the plates and such on this table here?

Sam Uley

Sure thing *running out to the car and carrying everything in, setting it out on the table. Chuckling as Shay shows you the fish cupcakes she helped make*

Leah Clearwater

Sure *grabs the plates and plastic silverware out of the bag and puts them on the table before grabbing the red Solo cups and doing the same with them*

Tiffany Call-Black

How pretty Shay! Uncle Billy will love them! ~Laughs as she bites into it. ~ She didn't want to wait, did she? ~Pats Shay's head and heads for the kitchen.

Sam Uley

Anything else we need?

*laughs* she’s her Daddy's daughter

Rachel Black Lahote

*I walk into the center, carrying two large trays of food, and trying to hold Mak’s hand* A little help here?

Leah Clearwater

*rushes over to Rachel and grabs one of the trays*

Sam Uley

*grabbing the other tray* hey Rach, hey Mak!

Tiffany Call-Black

~Turns and looks at Sam as he pops a cupcake in his mouth. ~ You have some green guilt on your cheek there Dad. ~Wipes it off. ~ Chafing dishes and warmers need to be set on the first table by the plates.

Leah Clearwater

Hey Rach, hey Mak *sets the tray down on the food table*

Rachel Black Lahote

Thanks Leah *Smiles* Thanks Sam. *Mak pulls away from my hand and runs off to find Shay*

Tiffany Call-Black

Rachel! Good. We are just getting the warmers set. ~Watches Mak run to Shay as she shows him the cupcakes. ~

Rachel Black Lahote

Hey Mom. Just tell me where you need me. *I look around the room*

8:24 PM

Sam Uley

Can Mak have a cupcake? *chuckling as he reaches for one*

Rachel Black Lahote

*Looks over to Sam* yeah, but just one. *grinning* And I'll be watching to see if you give him another one.

Sam Uley

Yes, Ma'am *winking as I hand Mak a cupcake* just one Mommy says, buddy

Leah Clearwater

*takes the bag that has my gifts in it and puts it on the gift table* I should have brought some food. I don't know what I was thinking

Sam Uley

There's tons here Leah no worries

Leah Clearwater

*chuckles* I made Brady breakfast this morning. That should count for something

Tiffany Call-Black

You are here to help set up, that is a big help! Rach, you brought the food, direct us what is here and where it goes?

Rachel Black Lahote

The tray Leah took has the chicken wings, and Sam took the baked macaroni and cheese. I have more to grab in the car. Anywhere you set it is fine.

Tiffany Call-Black

~Goes back to the kitchen to run water to fill the warmers, setting the containers on the counter.

Sam Uley

I'll grab the food from the car Rach

Rachel Black Lahote

Thanks, Sam. It's unlocked.

Sam Uley

*running back outside and bringing everything in bit by bit and setting it where Rachel advises me to*

Rachel Black Lahote

*I go set more food down*

Tiffany Call-Black

~Feels the pain in my back kick up again. ~ Not now baby. Daddy's party needs my attention.

Rachel Black Lahote

Mom, take a seat. Please.

Leah Clearwater

*checks my pocket for my phone* Oh I must have left that in the car. Be right back, guys.

8:43 PM

Tiffany Call-Black

Thanks. ~Heads out to a chair to sit for a few minutes. ~

Sam Uley

What else needs to be done Tiff? I am not too bad with the stove if you need me to reheat something *grins*

Rachel Black Lahote

*Points a fan in mom's direction then continues setting up food on the table, along with plates and cups*

Leah Clearwater

*comes back inside* Sorry. *holds my phone up* I don't like to be to far away from this. *looks at Tiffany* You ok, Tiff?

Katie Marshall

*I pull up to the community center and step out of my car. I open the back door and grab Billy's present from the back seat. I head inside.*

Tiffany Call-Black

Like I said, Rachel handled the food, so ask her what needs heated or prepared.

Yes, Leah, I'll be okay. Just normal cramps and pains. ~Sees Katie. ~ Katie! I am so happy you made it!

Rachel Black Lahote

*Looks at Sam* The baked ziti and mac and cheese need to be reheated. That's about it.

Katie Marshall

Hey there! Glad I could come. The place looks fabulous. *I smile at Tiffany and look around for where I would put Billy's gift, a guitar pick maker.*

Leah Clearwater

*stomach growls slightly at the sound of the baked ziti* Boy Rach, that sounds good *laughs*

8:48 PM

Katie Marshall

*I pull out my phone and start taking pictures.*

Rebecca Black Finau

[Following the sound of my name, seeing Rachel, grinning at sight of her] Rachel!

Katie Marshall

It’s okay Mike. I made my own birthday cake one year.

Michael Newton

Did it taste good? Maybe you can make mine...

Rachel Black Lahote

*Smiling as I look at Tiffany and Rebecca* All of our family is back on the Rez.

Michael Newton

Jess... *Tries not to laugh* I'm sure she's stuck on the highway somewhere and she'll call me to go rescue her. I got her a GPS. She says she knows how to use it. So today will be the test.

Rebecca Black Finau

Tiffany Call-Black

~Watches everyone enjoying themselves, happy this turned out so well. I get a glass of ice water and find a spot to sit. ~

Michael Newton

*Placing my plate down gently on the table rest so it won't fall as I lean close to whisper to Katie* I got him a back massager. I tested it out at the mall once and fell in love with it. Figured he'd like it too.

Katie Marshall

*I whisper back to Mike.* Wow. I am sure he will love it.

Rebecca Black Finau

[Looks to Rachel, smelling the BBQ] Wow that smells good.

Michael Newton

*Jokingly responds back to Katie* If not, I can take it back and look for another gift.

Sue Clearwater

*grabs a plate with all of Tiff's favorites on board & drags her over to Leah & me, whilst putting on my serious voice & smirking* We have a spare seat... Now sit woman or else!

Rachel Black Lahote

You should grab a plate. *I glance at Becca* Then you can meet someone very special to me. He kind of has my heart. *I grin*

Rebecca Black Finau

[Arches a brow as I nod, going to grab a small plate of food before immediately going back to Rachel]

Tiffany Call-Black

Thanks Sue. Is Billy eating? Or visiting? He needs to eat and I don't know if he did his meds. Maybe I should go check. ~Starts to stand and sits back down with a cramp. ~ Damnit.

Sam Uley

*filling up another plate and grabbing a coffee* Shay do you want anything else? *she shakes her head and continues to play*

Katie Marshall

I think I am going to tackle the potato salad. I didn't see it earlier. *I get back up, with my plate.*

*I gaze over at Tiffany.* Are you alright?

Rachel Black Lahote

*I laugh softly as Becca grabs food, composing myself when she gets back* Ready? *I walk over to the table where Mak and Shay are sitting* Mak, sweetheart...say hi to Rebecca. Rebecca, this is Somak......your nephew. *Mak looks up and smiles "hi Becky"

Tiffany Call-Black

~Smiles and waves at Katie. ~ Yes, thanks. Just the usual seventh month issues, back spasms and BH contractions. It will pass. Eat, enjoy!

Billy Black

*enjoys the music and seeing my friends and family all in one place* We need to do this more often *jokes*

Sue Clearwater

*frowns & firmly but gently makes you sit back down* I will go check on Billy about his meds, he's definitely eating, just now... but first tell me what's going on with you... *lowers my voice to a whisper* I saw that wince Tiff. *raises a brow* Spill!!

Katie Marshall

*I nod and grab some potato salad and sit back down.*

Rebecca Black Finau

[A wide smile spreads across my face when Rachel says "Nephew", crouching down to him] Hi Somak. [Looks up at Rachel, starting to wonder just how much I really missed out on]

Tiffany Call-Black

~Not wanting to make Sue worry or spoil the party. ~ It's nothing. Just the normal Braxton-Hicks. And baby has found a spot that is aggravating my back. ~Rubs my side. ~ It will pass.

Jessica Stanley

*walks inside and waves* Hi everyone! Sorry I'm late!

Michael Newton

Jess!!! *Waves my hand up high* Over here...

Rachel Black Lahote

*I smile softly when Mak gets out of his seat and hugs Rebecca* Mak, this is your aunt, okay? *Mak giggles*

Tiffany Call-Black

Sue, can you go help him?

Rachel Black Lahote

Well they've been together for about a year.... and they got married on Thanksgiving....*My eyes don't leave your face, waiting for a reaction*

Leah Clearwater

*mutters* Billy hates attention? Since when? *chuckles*

Sue Clearwater

*chuckles* Sure you do Billy & no problem Tiff. *heads over to the table & takes a box down* Are you ready Billy?

Rebecca Black Finau

[Taking in a big breath when you say they got married, looking over my shoulder to Dad, then looking to you] I've missed a lot..

Tiffany Call-Black

Embry, there is a gift from Doctor and Mrs Cullen in Billy's office here. Can you get it? Its a huge box.

Rachel Black Lahote

*Nods once, realizing how true that is* Yeah, but you're here now, and it means the world to all of us that you're here to stay. You don't have to miss anything else.

Katie Marshall

Billy Black

*looks for my wife and hears my daughters voices over the rest wondering what's up*

Rachel Black Lahote

*I frown, and look at you* Becca...I'm sorry...I shouldn't have said that. It's just that...yes, we're the same family, but a lot has changed too.

Michael Newton

*Looks over to Jess* Has he opened our gift yet? *Taking a bite of more food*

Sue Clearwater

*smiles, releasing you* I'm well sweetheart. I can't tell you how good it is to see you home.

Rachel Black Lahote

*I stare at Rebecca from across the room, then look at Tiffany, my mind reeling*

Jessica Stanley

I don't think so. *steals a bite of Mikes food*

Rebecca Black Finau

[Grins softly] It is so good to be home. I've missed you all. It's just weird being surrounded by so many people.

Michael Newton

*Raises a brow when Jess takes a bite, making a note to eat faster*

Tiffany Call-Black

~Worries, feeling sick, knowing I need to get to the ER soon, but not wanting to spoil Billy's party. Trying to figure if this feeling will pass.~

Sue Clearwater

*chuckles to Rebecca* You'll get used to it again, real quick.

Billy Black

*wonders where my wife has disappeared to*

Katie Marshall

*I lean in next to Jessica and Mike.* You think these woods are haunted?

Embry Call

mom, stop worrying and let us handle things. *frowns and gets you more water*

Michael Newton

*Spinning around to look at Katie* Well.. that would explain all the random animals missing.. *Looks at Jess with big eyes* You think?!

Tiffany Call-Black

~Holds my breath as another sharp pain grown in my side, biting back the groan that threatens, bending forward slightly. Knows I can't take any chances.~ Get Billy, please?

Jessica Stanley

*rolls my eyes* Thanks Katie. Now I'll be hearing about how we need to go ghost hunting for the next year. *smirks*

Bella Cullen

-listening to Mike and then sharing a smile with Edward-

Michael Newton

Wait! *Tries not to laugh* This could be like one of those big foot stories!

Bella Cullen

-laughs at Mike-

Rebecca Black Finau

I hope so, Sue.. [Feels Mak bouncing and getting feisty, looking for Rachel]

Sue Clearwater

*overhears Mike's conversation with the girls & refrains from laughing*

Leah Clearwater

*looks at Mike* You're not serious right now, are you?

Sue Clearwater

*smiles back to Rebecca* You'll be back into the LaPush lifestyle quicker than you realize.

Michael Newton

About big foot? Nah.. well.. You never know.. *Shrugs* But ghosts! My mom used to talk about living in a haunted house once. *Taps my chin in thought*

Bella Cullen

Even now after high school Mike still has a vivid imagination. -laughs-

Katie Marshall

I mean...the olympic peninsula has a lot of history is all.

Jessica Stanley

*nods in agreement with Mike* Ok normally i think hes nuts, but i totally believe his mom's haunted house stories.

Billy Black

*starts towards the kitchen looking for my wife*

Michael Newton

Have you seen the ghost stories on tv? They sound pretty cool.. *Nodding*

Rachel Black Lahote

*I frown at Tiffany, who is in pain* He's coming

Leah Clearwater

*sighs pinching the bridge of my nose while closing my eyes* Well if you find one...tell it to come to my house. I wanna scare my brother *hopes mom didn't hear me*

Michael Newton

Maybe stuff like that is happening in the woods!

Leah, if I find one. I'll probably run for the hills! *Laughs*

Sue Clearwater

*raises an eyebrow & smirks at Leah, catching her eye* Yes I heard that.

Bella Cullen

-laughs lowly as Edward whispers what Sue thought and looks at her-

Katie Marshall

I scared my little sister once, pretending I was possessed. It was great.

Michael Newton

What'd you do?

Rebecca Black Finau

I'm sure everyone will make sure of that. [Grins at Sue, laughing softly at Leah] Busted.

Leah Clearwater

*laughs* I usually am. It's hard to slip one past her

Tiffany Call-Black

~Holds my belly, hoping the baby moves from my back so this all passes.~

Katie Marshall

Well...I showed her the Exorcist the night before...

Jessica Stanley

*shudders* I so hate that movie.

Michael Newton

I like that movie.

Sue Clearwater

*winks at Rebecca & Leah* You know I see all.

Katie Marshall

She hasn't forgiven me to this day.

Michael Newton

Did you eat pea soup?

*Shudders at the thought of it* I hate peas.

Rebecca Black Finau

Always have, always will. [Laughs softly as I shift Mak]

Katie Marshall

I put in crazy contacts and splattered fake blood under my eyes, nose and mouth.

Michael Newton

*Jokes* I think you've just become my new best friend.

Leah Clearwater

Better carry some on you Mike. I hear Big Foot runs at the sight of peas *chuckles sarcastically*

Sue Clearwater

*frowns in the general direction of the kitchen & then to Leah & Rebecca* Have we seen Tiff? She's been gone a while!

Jessica Stanley

*grins at Leah*

Katie Marshall

Its fun being an older sibling.

Bella Cullen

-laughs at that-

Leah Clearwater

*looks toward the kitchen* Earlier she said she was alright, but she looked upset over more than *stops* Well, she didn't look like she felt good....

Michael Newton

*Sarcasically laughs a bit* Thakns for the tip Leah.

Leah Clearwater

Anytime Newton *sips my lemonade*

Rebecca Black Finau

I haven't.. Do you want me to go look for her? [Furrows my brows] I think Rachel is with her though..

Sue Clearwater

*nods to Leah* Thanks sweetheart, I'm going to go check on her *squeezes Becc's hand* I'll go too... She better be resting or else!

Michael Newton

Jess.. All this ghost haunting talks give me an idea.. *Smirks*

Sue Clearwater

*heads thru to the kitchen in search of Tiff*

Jessica Stanley

*raises an eyebrow* Do i want to know?

Michael Newton

Can you guess?

Tiffany Call-Black

Billy?

Leah Clearwater

*sarcastically* Oh can I guess, please? *laughs*

Katie Marshall

hmm...would it have to do with Halloween?

Rebecca Black Finau

[Laughs softly, following Sue, hoping she's alright]

Michael Newton

*points at Katie* Close! *Then looks at LEah* Go ahead and guess.

Billy Black

*rolls into the kitchen* What's up sweetness?

Jessica Stanley

I feel like this could be some weird sexual thing, or a halloween thing... *stares at Mike, almost worried about what he'll say*

Michael Newton

*Tries not to laugh with Jess' reply*

Leah Clearwater

You wanna borrow my EMF and explore the woods for things that go bump in the night? *chuckles*

Sue Clearwater

*takes in the scene that awaits us in the kitchen & spins around to Rebecca* Go grab your dad quick sweetheart.

Tiffany Call-Black

Billy...I hate to do this, but I think we need to get to the er. Something isn't right. ~Feels another pain, reaching for Billy's hand.~

Billy Black

I'm here.. what's happened?

Michael Newton

Actually... I was just thinking of setting up hidden cameras to catch a ghost. But those cameras cost a fortune!

Katie Marshall

My dad might have some.

Billy Black

*nods* Alright, let's get you in the truck

Kira Calteara

*feels concerned as the trouble with Tiffany plays out* Hope all is well.

Leah Clearwater

Not if you go to the right website, I mean mine only cost-*suddenly realizes my nerd is showing* I mean, that's what I heard

Katie Marshall

He used to work for a security company.

Rachel Black Lahote

*I stand up, helping Tiffany up*

Tiffany Call-Black

~Waits for the pain to pass.~ I-I don't know. My back is hurting and I keep getting a pain in my side. I just think we need to go see Carlisle at the ER.

Rebecca Black Finau

[Frowns when I see Tiffany in so much pain, looking at Sue, not sure what to do]

Billy Black

Alright, yes yes... *doesnt argue or ask questions, feels my heart start to race, worry creases my brow*

Michael Newton

What website did you use, leah?

Sue Clearwater

*puts a reassuring arm around Tiff's waist as we help her out to the truck* You going to be ok Billy?

Tiffany Call-Black

The truck is parked out back.

Billy Black

Yeah, I got this *stows my chair in the back and gets in the driver's seat*

Jessica Stanley

*feels my phone vibrate and looks down, seeing my Dad calling* I have to take this. Excuse me! *steps out to take the call*

Leah Clearwater

Amazon has one for a hundred bucks

But I use ghoststop.com...It's used stuff

Tiffany Call-Black

~Climbs in the truck with Sue's help.~ Go back inside, We'll call when we get there and let you know what Dr. Cullen says.

Sue Clearwater

*takes a deep breath* Ok... please drive carefully guys. And let me know when you know what's going on Tiff.

Michael Newton

*Nods towards Jess and looks back to Leah* Okay.. I'll make sure to look there.

Rachel Black Lahote

Be safe, Dad. Call if anything happens. *Watches dad, and mom get into the truck*

Sue Clearwater

*laughs nervously* That was nearly a jinx hun... take care.

Katie Marshall

I need to head home guys. It was nice seeing you all again! Mike, we should definitely talk more about this ghost hunting thing.

Billy Black

I will *puts the seatbelt on Tiffany and pats her hand* It'll be ok

Rachel Black Lahote

*smiles softly at Sue*

Leah Clearwater

*realizes I'm giving these people ideas about setting up cameras in the woods, and how much trouble that would be for a lot of us* But setting cameras up in the woods might be a bad thing. A lot of it is private property *nods*

Rebecca Black Finau

Please let us know.. Drive safely, Dad. [Stands near Rachel, looking at Sue]

Tiffany Call-Black

~Smiles at Sue, Rachel, Rebecca and Embry.~ Please, go back in and enjoy.

It'll be all right.

Michael Newton

It's private property? Says who?

Embry Call

*frown* if you say so.

Tiffany Call-Black

I do. It'll be okay.

Billy Black

*puts the truck in gear and slowly backs out of the lot* Alright.. ok ok.. *clears my throat* Umm.. left yes , left *turns on my headlights*

Leah Clearwater

Most of the no trespassing signs give it away

Sue Clearwater

Mhm *chuckling & shaking my head at Tiff* You forget I know you Mrs Black. Just be safe.

Katie Marshall

*to Leah* When you see Billy, tell him I said happy birthday.

I had a great time. Night everyone.

Michael Newton

Where is Billy? *looks around*

Leah Clearwater

I will. Goodnight Katie *smiles*

Tiffany Call-Black

~Waves as we pull out, watching Billy.~ Do I need to drive? ~Reaches over and places my hand on your leg.~

Bella Cullen

Have a good night Katie.

Leah Clearwater

I don't know I should go ask my mom. *walks around looking for mom*

Rachel Black Lahote

*Grabs Mak, who is falling asleep in Becca's arms* Everything will be fine...

Sue Clearwater

*looks to the others as the truck drives away* Everything will be ok.

Embry Call

*gets back inside* He's gone to drive mom to the hospital, she's not doing too well

Bella Cullen

-looks concerned-

Katie Marshall

Oh no....I hope everything is okay.

Embry Call

so do I katie, so do I...

Sue Clearwater

*heads back into the house & finds Leah* Well that was not good.

Katie Marshall

Well...if she is going to Forks Hospital, she's in good hands.

Michael Newton

I didn't even see them leave.. *Looking around*

Leah Clearwater

What's going on, mom? *whispers* I need to talk to you

Bella Cullen

-nods- Yes she will.

Katie Marshall

When you see her, tell her I wish her well.

Sue Clearwater

*smiles at Mike* It's all good Mike... *see's Leah's worried face* Ok Lee *whispers* here or at home?

Katie Marshall

Take care. *I take my leave.*

Michael Newton

See ya, Katie *Waves*

Bella Cullen

Bye Katie

Sue Clearwater

*waves* Night Katie, drive careful.

Tiffany Call-Black

~Focuses out the windshield, trying not to worry as another pain comes, hoping not to distract Billy from driving.~

Billy Black

*Turns out of LaPush onto the main road towards the hospital*

Leah Clearwater

Here. *takes mom to a not so crowded spot and whispers* Remember how you told me my sarcasm was going to get me in trouble someday? *can't look you in the face*

Brady Fuller

*walks in*

Billy Black

What happened? Did you eat something bad? Lift something? *keeps my panic subdued*

Rachel Black Lahote

*Looks at Becca* Someone had fun. *Looks down at Mak, asleep in my arms*

Tiffany Call-Black

~Doesn't realize my fingers are digging into Billy's leg. I try to concentrate on the questions.~ No, I, no. My back has been hurting since yesterday.

Sue Clearwater

*looks around to make sure we can't be overheard & whispers back* Yes... *my mouth dropping open slightly* Lee.. why can't you look at me? What's happened?

Billy Black

you shouldn't have lifted that laundry basket *looks over knowing she wasn't aware that I knew*

Leah Clearwater

Um *bites my lip* I might have encouraged some people to set cameras up in the woods to um...look for ghosts....*looks at you knowing I'm in a hole I can't dig myself out of*

Tiffany Call-Black

I doubt that is what caused this. I just thought the baby was...~ Stops as I feel something damp, icy fear running down my spine.~ Oh....no.

Billy Black

Tiff *puts my foot on the brake* What.. what is it?

Rebecca Black Finau

[Laughs softly as I look down at him, raising a brow] So, umm… Who's his dad, Rach?

Sue Clearwater

*gasps* You didn't.... *glancing around again* Leah.. *my words failing, taking a deep breath before calmly continuing* Don't worry... we'll figure this out. *the seed of a plan forming*

Tiffany Call-Black

~Looks over at you, eyes wide in panic.~ My water just broke. ~Feels a new pain, a real contraction and closes my eyes, holding my breath.~

Leah Clearwater

Sorry mom. I tried to back out of it, but I don't think it worked. *looks down*

Rachel Black Lahote

*Bites my lip* I don't know Becca...........*Looks away, trying not to laugh*

Billy Black

What? Wait.. it can't you *gets out of the truck, quickly makes my way to your side forgetting about my weak legs, adrenaline taking over. Are you sure?

Tiffany Call-Black

~Panting from the pain, nodding.~ How far is the hospital?

Billy Black

What? I .. um. 20 minutes maybe

Sue Clearwater

*looks around again & notices Brady & waves"hello", before continuing* It's okay Lee.. *a definite plan hatching now* I think this is salvagable... You should go grab Brady & I'll explain *winks*

11:34 PM

Tiffany Call-Black

~Feels a deep pain in my back, coming to the front in another contraction.~ I don't know if we are gonna make it in time. I think the baby is coming now.

Leah Clearwater

Alright *makes my way over to Brady* Hey...come here. *pulls on his sleeve going back over to mom*

Rebecca Black Finau

RACHEL! Are you serious? [Stares at you]

Tiffany Call-Black

~Breathing hard.~My midwife's kit is behind the seat. Is, is the sleeping bag still in the bed of the truck?

Rachel Black Lahote

*Bursts out in laughter* No, I'm kidding. His name is Paul. We're happily married.

Sue Clearwater

*watches & smiles reassuringly as Leah drags poor Brady over*

Brady Fuller

*walks witth you* can i say hi to everyone?

Leah Clearwater

No. I need your help. *stops when we get back to mom*

Billy Black

*gets back in the truck and slowly pulls from the curb barely missing a passing semi* Oh come on! *bangs the steering wheel*

Rebecca Black Finau

[Narrows my eyes at you, holding in my laughter] That is so mean, Rach. Not funny!

Sue Clearwater

*chuckles* I'm really sorry Brady, but we really do need your help.

Billy Black

Im sorry *looks over at you seeing your face contorted in pain* Are you sure your water broke? Positive?

Brady Fuller

*looks at sue* with what soo?

sue*

Rachel Black Lahote

It was pretty funny actually. *I glance at my watch* I should get going, want to stop by for a bit Becca?

Leah Clearwater

*looks at Brady* My mouth may have gotten me in trouble....*glares at you* Don't laugh...

Tiffany Call-Black

~Nods.~ I'm sure.

Sue Clearwater

*takes a deep breath, then looks at back to Leah* I think you should calmly explain & then I'll tell you both my plan.

Rebecca Black Finau

Sure. Maybe we will hear from dad that everything is okay then. [Grins]

Billy Black

ok ok ok.. *pushes my foot down and speeds up* Tiff? .. Talk to me please

Rachel Black Lahote

*Nods and waves goodbye to everyone* Bye guys!! Have a great night!

Leah Clearwater

So....Mike and Jessica and Katie were talking about ghosts in the woods, and um...I may have encouraged them to set up cameras in the woods to catch them...It was very innocent until...I realized what the hell I was saying...

Tiffany Call-Black

~Leans back against the seat as another contraction starts, counting in my head for it to pass.~ Hurry, Billy.

Rebecca Black Finau

[Waves to everyone farewell, following Rachel out] See you all later.

Billy Black

It's dark, I don't want to hit an Elk, Tiff * speeds up knowing the road like the back of my hand*

Sue Clearwater

*waves goodbye to Rach & Becca* Night girls *smiles at Mak sleeping in Rach's arms* Drive safe.

Leah Clearwater

Bye guys!

Rachel Black Lahote

Thanks, Sue. *waves*

Tiffany Call-Black

~Feels my back start to sweat, rolling down the window to get some air.~ Billy, we aren't going to make it. You are going to have to pull off. ~Feeling tears rolling down my cheek.~ Oh....

Billy Black

For the love of PETE! *puts on the brakes on slowly and pulls over* What do you mean? We're almost there.. whats happening? *fear laces my words*

11:45 PM

Tiffany Call-Black

No...not time...~Panting hard as the contraction steals my voice, unable to stop my tears.~ You have to help me Billy...please...

Billy Black

Tiff please *gets out of the truck and flings your door open* Lay down.. *tosses my jacket to my side* Put your head there, keep breathing slow Please

11:47 PM

Kira Calteara

*feels a sense of dread for Tiffany* oh no

Billy Black

Tiffany please.. you have to talk to me through this

*takes her shoes off, grabs my cell and dials 911* No cell reception! Damint! Tiff we're going to have to do this solo. Talk to me, please

Tiffany Call-Black

~Catching my breath.~ I-I just...you need to watch for the baby's head. Can you see?

Brady Fuller

*growls* why would you do that?

Leah Clearwater

I was being sarcastic...I'm sorry...

Billy Black

*gently lifts her skirt* No. The interior light is crap in this freakin truck! *thinks* Ok.. wait - my phone! *turns on the flashlight and holds it in my mouth*

Mhmm .. alright *says muffled with the phone in my mouth* Are you sure this is imminent?

*freaks out internally thinks to myself* What the hell am I doing?!

Tiffany Call-Black

~Groans as another contraction comes, knowing I will have to push soon, feeling weak.~

Give me your hands.

Billy Black

Talk to me *mumbles* Come on, Tiff.. don't push.. there's NOTHING here .. Oh wait.. Tiff.. I see it... *gives her my hand*

Tiffany Call-Black

~Grabs your hand, pulling against it as I push, holding my breath counting to ten, falling back.~

Billy Black

Oh god.. the head. I see it! I SEE THE HEAD! * drops the flashlight and it goes under the truck* Son of a .... *leans my head back knowing I have to do this blind* alright.. gentle .. Push gently *holds my hand firmly against the baby's head as it starts to crown*

Brady Fuller

*looks at Leah* what has sam said about this?

Tiffany Call-Black

~Curls up to push, biting back a groan.~

~Drops back to the seat.~ Billy, feel for the head. Do you feel it?

Billy Black

*wishes more than anything that Sue was here right now* Oh god what would Sue do?? Tiff Help me here.. I don't know what to do!! I feel the head I feel it!!

*swallows hard, fear threatening to steal my breath and make me pass out* Ok ok.. *whispers to myself* breathe old man, come on don't let your wife and child die out here. STAY AWAKE! *slaps myself in the face*

Tiffany Call-Black

Okay...keep your hand there. How much of the head do you feel?

Yesterday

Billy Black

How much? I .. a little bit, the baby has a lot of hair *swallows hard*

Billy Black

Come on old man.. you've got this.. it's just a baby. *pep-talks myself*

Tiffany Call-Black

You have to let me know when the head is out...another...another...~breathing hard, finding it hard to talk.~ Push...~Pulls against your free hand and pushes, groaning, wanting to scream.~

Billy Black

*nods* Alright *let's out a breath* Next one.. Push with everything you have *feels the head move slightly* That's it.. more.. keep going

Billy Black

What the hell? Where is all the traffic that I am usually stuck behind? This is tourist season!! *yells at the top of my lungs* Where the HELL is Chief Swan?

Tiffany Call-Black

~Falls back gasping, trying to instruct you.~ Billy...please...focus. ~The pain is taking a toll.~ Once the head is out, you will have to ease the shoulders.

Billy Black

There's shoulders? *acts surprised hearing myself and rolling my eyes at my own comment* Yes ok, one more good push

Billy Black

Come on, Tiff ...

Tiffany Call-Black

~Exhausted and drained, trying to will up to another push. Knowing I have to push without your help, I grab the steering wheel and the back of the seat.~

Billy Black

*fear tightens in my chest as the head pops out* Its OUT!.. the head.. now what?? What Now? *leans on the seat, my legs completely numb*

Tiffany Call-Black

Ready.....use both hands....~Feels the urge to push, the pain on this one overwhelming, a loud cross between a scream and a groan co escaping before I can bite it back.~

Billy Black

*supports the head feeling her immense strength as she pushes and the shoulders start to emerge* That's it.. you've got this.. one more Tiff and the baby will be out

*thinks to myself* I need a beer.. right now *swallows hard as the stress starts to hit me, worry and fear thud loudly in my chest*

Tiffany Call-Black

~Collapses on the seat.~ I don't think I can.

Billy Black

*immense calm washes over me* You have to. There is NO Can't. Focus *hears a car in the distance* someone's coming. Push

Tiffany Call-Black

~Gathering what little strength I have, I grab again at the truck and arch my back throwing it all into another push, screaming again, unable to stop the primal sound.~

Tiffany Call-Black

~Feeling the baby slide out I try to see.~ Billy? Billy? Is everything all right?

Billy Black

*sees flashing lights in the distance* I have it.. the baby.. *carefully grabs the baby as it slips out and onto the seat* Oh my god * tears my shirt off and wraps the baby and quickly lays it on your belly*

Tiffany Call-Black

Billy? Boy or girl? ~Lays my hands on the very tiny bundle.~ Oh...so small.

Billy Black

*watches the ambulance pull up behind me realizing the 911 call must have gone through after all*

Tiffany Call-Black

~Feeling weak and disoriented.~ Billy? Is someone here? Is the baby breathing? Billy boy or girl?

Billy Black

What? I don't know.. I have no idea *waves at the ambulance as it stops behind the truck*

Tiffany Call-Black

~Brings the tiny human up to my arms and opens the shirt, smiling.~ A girl. Billy it's a girl! ~ Takes the edge of the shirt and wipes her face.~

Billy Black

A girl... *tears fill my eyes as I move away letting the crew rush in and carry you & the baby into the ambulance*

Tiffany Call-Black

~Reaching for you...Billy...Billy?!

Billy Black

I'm here *leaves my truck roadside and gets in the ambulance with you and the baby*

A girl? really? *closes my eyes and thanks the man upstairs silently*

Tiffany Call-Black

~Watches as the medic takes her and checks her, while the other tends to me. Looks at Billy, exhausted, my eyes heavy.~ Aerie.

Blake Hunt

-blows a birthday horn- hooray, two birthdays

Carlisle Cullen MD

*hears the ambulance radio in to the ER announcing their immediate arrival with a woman who gave birth roadside*

Billy Black

Aerie *smiles* yes... hello Aerie *touches her tiny finger and smiles as it curls around mine, tears flow freely*

Carlisle Cullen MD

*walks out to meet the ambulance as they back up to the doors, a smile creases my lips seeing Mr. and Mrs. Black in the back* You didnt want to wait, little one? *chuckles under my breath as they roll Mother and child inside* Get this man a wheel chair, please *smiles at Billy* And a shirt

Tiffany Call-Black

~Closes my eyes against the bright lights. Hears Dr.Cullen's voice, a reassuring sound.~ Dr. check on Billy? Is he okay?

Carlisle Cullen MD

Billy's fine *slowly and gently takes the small bundle from her arms* I need to check on this little one* My smile forced, worry in my eyes* May I ?

Tiffany Call-Black

~Nods, acutely aware of the concern on your face, knowing she is 2 months early. Swallows hard, trying to control my rising panic.~ Is she all right?

Billy Black

I'm here *wheels myself in, wearing a clean scrub shirt* Looks at Tiffany then at Dr. Cullen. It was like this instant thing. She just was HERE. It's too early *panickedwords flood from my mouth*

Tiffany Call-Black

~Holds my hand out to Billy.~ Did you find your phone? You have to text Sue and the kids...

Carlisle Cullen MD

I don't know *moves the limp baby quickly to the isolette and starts her on oxygen and a medication to rapidly mature her lungs* She's very weak, and needs help breathing. Let me get an assessment* Steps back and lets the NICU nurses do their thing*

Tiffany Call-Black

~Tries to sit up, worry and fear combining in my chest.~ Aerie? My baby?

Carlisle Cullen MD

*watches as the nurses do the APGAR on the infant, notes the results and stands back watching them get her stabilized* She's early but she's feisty *smiles at Tiffany trying to reassure her*

Leah Clearwater

*looks at Brady* I haven't told Sam. I've told mom, and I've told you. *sighs, knowing I screwed up big*

Carlisle Cullen MD

She will have to stay here a while until her lungs mature and she can breathe on her own. She's early and just needs some extra time *explains trying to be calming and assuring*

Brady Fuller

*looks at Leah* you have to tell Sam I can talk to MIke try to convince him not to put the cameras up but Sam will have to do something about it

Billy Black

Couple days? *looks at Tiffany's panic stricken face as my heart sinks*

Tiffany Call-Black

~Panic taking over.~ What's going on? Is she all right? Billy, do something...~Starting to feel hysterical.~

Leah Clearwater

I know...I'll tell him. I think mom had an idea *looks at mom*

Sue Clearwater

*whispers to you both* What's done is done but we can fix this. *raising an eyebrow & smirking* Want to hear?

Brady Fuller

*looks at Leah then Sue* sure sue

Leah Clearwater

*nods* Of course

Carlisle Cullen MD

More like a few weeks *takes the clipboard from the Nurse* We need to give her a thorough exam *nods to the nurse as she takes the isolette to the NICU* You need to be calm, Mrs. Black *whispers* Tiffany, please

Tiffany Call-Black

Weeks?!? ~Overcome by the news I collapse back to the stretcher, crying.~ What have I done?

Billy Black

I'll go with the baby, I'll be back as soon as she's stable *kisses your hand and catches up with the nurse right before she gets on the elevator*

Sue Clearwater

Mike will be determined to venture out into the forest and get his evidence but we all know that when push comes to shove that bravery is not one of his strong suits, so...

Leah Clearwater

*a small smile crosses my face as mom describes her amazing plan*

Sue Clearwater

Why don't you all ensure he is too frightened to venture beyond the tree line...

Brady Fuller

*smirks* thats not a bad idea sue but we might need the whole pack for this

Kira Calteara

or just dress up in bigfoot costumes and parade for his cameras. Let him become the laughing stock of the town when he shows his dancing bigfoot footage.

Leah Clearwater

*laughs* That's a really good plan, guys

Carlisle Cullen MD

You didn't do anything *sits on the stretcher* You need to be calm, let us do our jobs and get you and the baby situated. This happens sometimes, it's just nature. *touches her forehead* let us get you cleaned up and we'll take you up stairs as soon as possible

Sue Clearwater

*looks to you both* I'm sure it will spice up patrol nights. Maybe you could all set up some harmless booby traps too?

Leah Clearwater

*hugs mom* You're the best. I love you

Brady Fuller

*nods* someone can dress like a ghost and *shrugs* i dont know but we have to have Sams help Leah *looks at Leah*

Sue Clearwater

*returns your hug laughing* I love you too Lee, your Mom can be devious sometimes *winks*

Leah Clearwater

*looks at Brady* I know. I'll tell him my screw up. Please don't be mad at me, Brady. I promise to keep better control of my sarcasm...

Brady Fuller

*looks at you* Im not mad but Sam will be pissed about this Leah

Tiffany Call-Black

~Unable to answer, too many questions crashing in my head. All I can do is nod.~

Leah Clearwater

I know. *sighs* I should call him *takes out my phone and dials Sam's number*

Sue Clearwater

If all else fails *looks across the room to Bella* I know someone who would love to give Mr Newton a good fright *smiles & nods in Bella's direction*

Carlisle Cullen MD

*places a reassuring hand on her shoulder* Good. Billy has gone up with the baby and you will go up in a few minutes *nods to the nurse to come examine her and get her vitals and all cleaned up*

Bella Cullen

-grins as I hear Sue and gives a big nod-

Leah Clearwater

*smiles in Bella direction, thinking Thank you, knowing Edward will tell her*

Sue Clearwater

*smiles & winks at Bella, whispering to you both* See.. Bella is already on board.

Bella Cullen

-listens as Edward whispers in my ear and mouths your welcome to Leah-

Carlisle Cullen MD

You'll be staying here for a good few days as well. Until your blood pressure and sugar levels are down *looks a the chart* Tiffany, you took a huge risk with this pregnancy and I highly recommend that this be your last *closes the clipboard and sighs* The next one won't be such a happy ending

Tiffany Call-Black

~Shakes my head trying to come to terms with this sudden turn of events.~

Sue Clearwater

*checks the time, thinking about Tiffany & Billy & hoping everything is okay*

Carlisle Cullen MD

Do you want to call anyone?

Leah Clearwater

*leaves Sam a voicemail, since he is not picking up, telling him I need to talk to him asap and hangs up*

Tiffany Call-Black

~Answers, my voice flat~ The kids...

Bella Cullen

-nods as Edward suggests leaving, standing- Good to see you all. I hope Tiffany and the baby will be okay. -waves goodbye as Edward and I slip out-

Sue Clearwater

*looks to Leah* No luck? Maybe we should head home & wait to hear from Tiff & Billy

Leah Clearwater

Bye Bella. And thanks again....

Tiffany Call-Black

My phone...I don't have my phone...

Sue Clearwater

*waves goodbye to Bella & Edward* Bye guys

Bella Cullen

-calls back to Leah- You are welcome.

Tiffany Call-Black

Everyone is still at the party

Bella Cullen

Bye all -gets into the volvo with Edward and heads back to Forks-

Leah Clearwater

*looks at mom* Sounds good. Let's go...*ready for this night to be over, but still dreading talking to Sam*

Billy Black

*watches with tears in my eyes as they quickly intubate and get the baby on a vent system* Oh Aerie *whispers against the glass* I'm so sorry *runs my fingers through my messy hair worried and hoping Tiffany is alright*

Carlisle Cullen MD

*hands you my cell* here, hang on to that- call whomever you wish. I'll check back with you in a while

Billy Black

*swallows hard seeing her tiny body all hooked up to wires and tubes & breaks down into a stress-released sob*

*wipes my eyes and pulls myself together, realizing Sue and the kids are probably worried sick*

*wheels up and uses the phone at the nursing station to call Sue*

Billy Black

Come on.. Sue.. answer *hope it doesn't go to voice mail*

Tiffany Call-Black

~Looks at the phone and takes a deep breath, dialing Embry.~

Embry Call

*feels my phone vibrate, I answer puzzled at the id* Hello?

Sue Clearwater

*retrieves my cell* It's Billy Leah.. hold up *answers* Hi Billy, What news do you have?

Billy Black

Tiff is ok

It's been a hell of a night. *relieved to hear your voice*

Leah Clearwater

*waits with mom, anxious to hear what happened*

Tiffany Call-Black

Hey, sweety. It's mom. ~Trying to put some energy in my voice.

Embry Call

mom! How are you? you alright?

Brady Fuller

*sits on the couch*

Sue Clearwater

*breathes out a sigh of relief* And you Billy? What about the baby? *my words tumbling out*

Tiffany Call-Black

I'm all right. Um...you have a baby sister.

Billy Black

I think I'm fine, honestly I dont know. I can't feel my body *laughs nervously*

It's a girl

Embry Call

Sue Clearwater

*shrieks with delight* Oh my god... Billy that's wonderful, I'm so happy for you *whispers excitedly to Leah & Brady* It's a girl!!! Wait... your meds.. are you sure you are okay?

Tiffany Call-Black

Yes. They took her up..~my voice catches in my throat.~ She is in NICU. Her name is Aerie. ~Starts to cry.~

Leah Clearwater

*smiles when I hear it's a girl*

Brady Fuller

*looks at sue**facepalm* oh boy

Leah Clearwater

Sue Clearwater

*laughs nudging Leah & whispering furiously at Brady* A girl!!

Brady Fuller

*laughs* what?

Billy Black

Brady Fuller

*laughs* i meant oh great

Embry Call

Aerie. NICU? I'm sure they have good reasons mom. isn't doc there tonight?

Billy Black

They said she'll be here a few weeks, I don't really know anything else yet - Doctor Cullen is downstairs with Tiff

Sue Clearwater

Okay... It's okay Billy... This is normal *my nurse mode kicking in* She will be absolutely fine, Carlisle is there and she couldn't be in better hands. *tries to calm you* Tell me her name?

Billy Black

Can you tell Rach to tell Jake? He has his damn phone off.. AGAIN

Her name oh. right *shakes my head* Aerie

Tiffany Call-Black

~Wipes my eyes.~ Yes, Dr. Cullen saw her and sent her up. I'll have to stay in a few days.

Sue Clearwater

*nodding & smiling* Of course I will Billy *whispers to Leah* Can you text Rach to tell Jake. *beams* Aerie... That's a beautiful name Billy...

Carlisle Cullen MD

*heads upstairs to the NICU to oversee the VIP and talk with her father*

Billy Black

Sue.. she's perfect, so beautiful. Wait till you see her *feels a sense of pride talking about her*

Sue Clearwater

*smiles* I can imagine and I can't wait to see her, tell Tiff I'll be there tomorrow

What time was she born?

Billy Black

*feels a hand on my shoulder, looks up and sees Dr. Cullen and finishes my call* Thank you Sue.. Oh.. my truck - it's roadside about 2 miles from the hospital - Can you send one of the boys down to get it? Keys are still in the ignition. I think it's still running!

she was born at 9:12PM

they haven't given me her stats yet.. Weight, length and everything. I dont know

Tiffany Call-Black

~Sees the nurse poke her head in and waves her in.~ Embry, I need to go for now. The nurse is here. I will check in again with you soon.

Embry Call

Tiffany Call-Black

I love you son. I'm not going anywhere. Get some rest.

Sue Clearwater

Bless & don't worry about a thing.. we'll take care of it. Please rest okay.. and it's all good, I'll find out from you both tomorrow. Take care of yourself my dear friend and give my best friend a hug & kiss from me. *my emotions getting the better of me as my eyes begin to tear up*

Embry Call

Leah Clearwater

*puts my arm around mom knowing how emotional she can be*

Brady Fuller

*looks at sue and leah**gets up and steps outside for a minute*

Billy Black

Thank you *hears the emotion in her voice and tears up again* For everything *hangs up and apologises to Dr. Cullen for keeping him waiting*

Tiffany Call-Black

~Hangs up and sets the phone aside, laying limp as the nurse goes through cleaning me and checking vitals getting ready to admit me.~

Carlisle Cullen MD

It's fine, are you alright? do you need anything? Medications? Food?

Sue Clearwater

*sniffs and wipes the tears away as I hang up* Love you both Billy, Bye. *smiles to Leah* They're okay.. everything's going to be okay.

Billy Black

Ignores his questions and looks him in the eye* Tell me the truth. Is she going to be ok?

Leah Clearwater

*smiles* That's good. What's the baby's name?

Brady Fuller

*crosses my arms and leans up against the railing*

Carlisle Cullen MD

I can't answer that, Billy. I won't lie to you. She's going to be on that vent for a few days. I will let you know everything as it happens, I promise you that

Tiffany Call-Black

~Feeling terrified and alone at the moment, knowing it is best that Billy is with Aerie, my mind races through the worst case scenarios. ~

Billy Black

*nods* Thank you for that. Is Tiff ok? *sighs heavily, stress taking it's toll*

Sue Clearwater

*smiles* Aerie.. her name is Aerie and she was born at 9:12pm. That's all Billy knows for now, she's up in NICU at the moment because she's slightly premature... *takes a deep breath & nods* But she has Carlisle looking after her, she couldn't be in better hands.

Carlisle Cullen MD

She is *pats his shoulder* She'll be up soon, they'll be admitting her shortly. Let me get in there and see what's going on. Try and take a few deep breaths. I'll be back in a bit

Leah Clearwater

*yawns* I'm tired. We should go check on Brady and then head home. *hoping Sam doesn't call til morning, but knowing my luck he'll call in the next 5 minutes*

Brady Fuller

*sighs and tries to control my emotions*

Tiffany Call-Black

~Transport arrives, taking me up to the NICU floor to my room.~

Sue Clearwater

*nods & pats your back* You're right, It's been an interesting night *heads out onto the porch to check on Brady*

Leah Clearwater

*walks with mom to check on Brady* Hey...you alright?

Brady Fuller

*sees Leah* yeah...Im cool just needed some air

Sue Clearwater

Do you need a lift home Brady? It's no trouble.

Brady Fuller

*shakes my head* seeing that billy and tiff arent home Im going to stay here and clean up

Leah Clearwater

*looks back at the mess inside* That's a good point. Want me to stay and help?

Brady Fuller

*shakes my head* I got it and if I get tired I will crash on the couch

Billy Black

*Meets Tiffany at the nurses station and follows them to her room and settles in for the night*

Sue Clearwater

*chuckles* Or steal Embry's bed *knowing he wil hear me*

Leah Clearwater

Ok. If you're sure. Breakfast tomorrow? Bright and early, then a run? *chuckles*

Brady Fuller

*laughs* I might just push Embry off his bed**looks at Leah and smirks* nope run then breakfast

Leah Clearwater

You cooking this time, or me again? *grins*

Brady Fuller

*points to you* you are cause you owe me a favor

Leah Clearwater

Alright. French toast and eggs sound good?

Tiffany Call-Black

~Lays in the semi darkness listening to the various machines and sounds, thinking how different it sounds from the bed as opposed to working. Keeps replaying what has happened in my mind, tears of guilt sliding down my cheeks.~

Sue Clearwater

*beams* Does this mean, you're cooking for me too?

Billy Black

*softly talks to my wife trying to reassure her that all will be fine, knowing she can sense and hear the fear in my voice* Tiff.. she's going to be ok. Please try and rest

Leah Clearwater

Of course mom. I was gonna tell him to come over when he wakes up. Since I made him get up this morning so I could cook at his place *chuckles*

Brady Fuller

*laughs* you did swirched sucked

Sue Clearwater

*smiles* Sounds like a good plan.

Brady Fuller

Leah Clearwater

*laughs* And then we were to lazy to run

Tiffany Call-Black

~Unable to look at Billy, feeling this is my fault, fearing what will happen with Aerie, knowing I won't be able to sleep till I hold her again.~ You need to rest too. Can Carlisle find you a bed?

Billy Black

Yeah, they're going to bring a cot in for me so I can stay with you

Tiffany Call-Black

~Nods.~ Good. I called Embry. He'll come by tomorrow.

Brady Fuller

*nods fast* i blame leah

Leah Clearwater

I'm excellent cook. *grins and looks at mom* I learned from the best

Sue Clearwater

*chuckles & nods* Yes you did

Tiffany Call-Black

~Sees transport come in with a bed for Billy, setting it up.~ There you go. You had a long day. Get some sleep.

Sue Clearwater

Leah Clearwater
