Moe and Grayson had settled down to watch the television when there was a knock at the door. Moe got up to answer it and received the shock of his life when he found Francois Lambert standing there.
The old man looked tired, as if the world was resting on his shoulders and Moe was surprised to see that he'd aged rapidly since the last time he'd seen him in Champs les Sims.
As Monsieur Lambert began to explain to Moe while he was here, Moe realised there had been even more to the mystery of Monique and her Francois than the diaries had explained.

Moe and Grayson had settled down to watch the television when there was a knock at the door. Moe got up to answer it and received the shock of his life when he found Francois Lambert standing there.
The old man looked tired, as if the world was resting on his shoulders and Moe was surprised to see that he'd aged rapidly since the last time he'd seen him in Champs les Sims.
As Monsieur Lambert began to explain to Moe while he was here, Moe realised there had been even more to the mystery of Monique and her Francois than the diaries had explained.
A letter had arrived at the chateau the day after Moe had returned home to Grayson and Violetta. It was addressed to him and so Monsieur Lambert decided to bring it himself and finally discover the answer to the strange tale.
Moe asked him how the letter had arrived, whether it had been posted or not and wasn't at all surprised to hear it had just turned up on the doorstep, no stamp or posting details on it.
As they both stood there, Moe had an eerie sense that they were being watched by someone. However, he felt no malice from whoever it was and so he settled back to listen to Francois with one ear open for movement from outside the garden.
Francois explained to Moe that after he'd returned to the chateau he'd decided to have another look around for clues to what happened to Monique.
In the study he'd found a safe, hidden behind a magnificent painting which had been left by the previous owner Javier Foulk.
Inside were all Javier's papers detailing how he'd been heavily in debt to the local criminal bigman and how he'd planned to inherit Monique's fortune by marrying her.
She'd resisted, because of her love for her Francois, and so Javier had had her kidnapped from the château grounds and incarcerated inside a nunnery high in the hills of Champ les Sims.
While Grayson slept, happily in the knowledge that Moe had safely returned home, Francois Lambert continued to explain what had happened to Monique.
It seemed that a few weeks after her arrival at the nunnery Monique had discovered she was pregnant. She'd gone on to safely give birth to a little boy, who she'd named Francois after her beloved and left all her worldly goods to him before expiring of sorrow.
The birth of Francois had ruined all of Javier's plans and his body had been found in the chateau's study alongside a Ghost Potion and a letter explaining his guilt. The local Gendarmerie had felt it was better to keep things quiet and so they'd simply arranged to remove all evidence of wrong doing and appointed a local respected judge to oversee baby Francois' care.
No-one had ever discovered what had happened to Francois Senior, explained his namesake, but he was the baby and it had been no accident of fate that he'd bought the chateau which once belonged to his tragic parents.
Francois explained he'd been sent a brochure anonymously in the post, suggesting he may like to purchase an old run down chateau at a reduced price because it was in need of restoration.
Suddenly there was a loud wailing noise and both Moe and Monsieur Lambert jumped in shock.
It had sounded like a baby's cry, coming from inside Moe and Grayson's house. Rushing upstairs both men stood in amazement at the sight of a baby boy, a note pinned to his blanket - this child was once Javier Foulk.
It seemed the Ghost Potion was actually a combination Ghost and Young Again Potion, which had failed spectacularly and instead of turning him temporarily into a spirit so he could escape, had caused him to be reborn as a baby.
Although the circumstances were somewhat bizarre, both Moe and Greyson were in agreement that the newborn baby should not be held responsible for his previous incarnation and they determined to bring him up in a house of peace and love, sure this would prevent him from turning into the embittered young man Javier Foulk had ended up.
Violetta loved her younger brother, who had been formally adopted by the McTavishes. She spent all her spare time with him, explaining how Moe and Grayson had met, how horrible it had been when Moe had vanished in Champs les Sims, how Monsieur Lambert had moved into the house next door, determined to keep in touch with the once son of his father's dearest friend.
Under Violetta's gentle care, the young baby grew into a handsome toddler. Moe and Grayson had decided to give him a new name for his new life and so Franklin McTavish settled down in The Cape.

Fate's wild card had been played and she knew the once bitter and haunted Javier Foulk was about to get a second shot at life in a family filed with love.
On behalf of Moe and Grayson can I just apologise for the delays in getting Cape Adventures finished.
A house move, a lost save, a desperate scramble to find a previous backup and just not enough time all conspired together to add to the delay.
I hope anyone who read the first four parts and was wondering what happened to the McTavishes is happy with the conclusion to my little mystery tale.
I will be continuing to play this lovely family and may upload a new story with the Cape Adventures of Violetta and Franklin.

Thanks everyone for reading!
