Where you at, Hon?

Dad's doing much better. He's gone back to work. Being a Hall of Famer he mostly just gets invited to talk on radio and TV shows but he was always so outgoing he enjoys doing things like that. He seems more himself these days.
Mom has gone over to visit Mercedes and Candida a couple of more times. I asked her about the baby. She said the baby is just fine, and his name is George.
George! Emmy, that's Dad's name! I got upset when Mom told me. She said I should calm down. How can I calm down? Tell me, Emmy, what should I do about all of this? Help me figure it out.
Your desperate sister,
Don't confront anyone, Sis. Keep cool. I'll be back soon.
Mom sat me down today and we talked a little while. She told me not to worry about her and Dad. "We're not breaking up, Dear. I think you were a little concerned about that." (Understatement, Emmy!) She said that a long time ago, before she met Dad, she was madly in love with Uncle Drake, (Did you know about this, Emmy?) But as far as Uncle Drake was concerned, she was invisible. The only woman for him was Mom's cousin, Kiara. "Kiara was a very beautiful woman. All the boys at college wanted to date her. Except your father. Your father had his nose in the books all the time. He was brilliant, you know, at everything he did, but he had no apparent interest in dating anyone, not even Kiara. So," Mom smiled, "I decided that since I had no chance with Uncle Drake, I'd try to win your father. I was lonely, after all. He turned out to be a really good guy."
But did she still love Uncle Drake? "I didn't think so, but he started teasing me, making me laugh, then I'd find him crying because he missed Kiara so much. My poor, sad Drake. And your father was so busy, never home." I asked her if Dad found out about her and Uncle Drake? Is that why he left for a few days? "He was mad at me, but now we've made up." Yeah, Emmy, I've noticed they're always holding hands and kissing like teenagers. Yuck. Though I guess I'd rather see this then have them break up.
And the baby across the street named George? Mom's face got a little stiff and pink when I asked about him. "Candida Menendez is very young and pretty and, I think, a silly girl. She thought your Dad and I were going to get divorced. (So did I, Emmy.) She was wrong and now she needs help. We're still discussing it. But you are not to discuss it. Not with anyone, not even Emmeline."
How can I not even tell you? I'd explode into a million pieces. We have a baby brother!

Somehow I think Candida isn't nearly as innocent as their mom thinks.
