As Ari and Rachel made their way into the dining room, they stopped and watched Toby take Eden aside. Their heads turned simultaneously towards one another and they smiled like two goofy little children. While the two kids talked, Ari set the dishes she had full of food onto the hot plates that adorned the table and took the ones that Rachel had as well to down in their proper spots.
"What do you think they're talking about?" Rachel said in a whisper to Ari. She shrugged her shoulders and smiled, "Hopefully Eden's saying that she wants to come back to Yeshiva in the fall." The two of them beamed and took their seats at the table. Each of the men were at the heads of the table, with their wives to their right, with spots for the four kids on either side of the table. Eli had decided to hop into the chair right next to Ariella and Ayelet took the one beside Eli. It left two open spots, side by side on the opposite table with Rachel Adler.
Ari and Rachel eyed each other from across the table and smiled. The night couldn't be any more perfect than it was turning out to be. "Toby dear," Ari passed over the metal kiddush cup to him with a small matching plate beneath it. The cup was overflowing with a sweet wine that Ari had been saving for a Shabbos like this. "Make kiddush?" At that, she stood up and everyone else at the table followed suit.
