-Epilogue- " Daddy!" two little girls scream. They run at Alex, jumping straight into his arms before he can shut the front door. He smiles and kicks it closed with his foot, kissing them each on the cheek and tickling them. I smile, grateful for a small break from them, and lean my hip against the counter. " The daddy monster's home! And he's coming to get you!" he yells as he sets them down. They shriek and run upstairs, stumbling over each other to go hide. Alex laughs and walks over to me, loosening his tie while holding something behind his back. He scoops me into his arms and kisses me sweetly on the lips, spinning me around the kitchen. " How was your day?" he asks. " Good, how was yours?" I ask back. " It was pretty good. For you, beautiful," he says, pulling a bouquet of roses out fom behind his back. " Thank you, babe." I tell him and he kisses my nose. " No problem." he replies. He turns at the girls giggling from the stairs and then holds his hands up like he's going to tickle them. " Jane, Lacey, you'd better be in bed by the time I get up there!" he jokes in a loud voice, running up the stairs after them. I follow him into their room and he picks them both up by their waists and sets the twins down in their beds. " Story!" they say at the same time. He sighs. " Oh alright, but just one." he replies. " Do the one about the prince and the princess!" Jane says excitedly. He busies himself with tucking them in before sitting at the edge of their bed. " Okay. Once upon a time, there was a princess named Laura, and a prince named Theo. You see, Princess Laura and Prince Theo didn't like each other at all. One day Theo put red paint in Laura's hair while they were learning at the castle. And then a few years later, he cut all of her hair off!" he says and they gasp. " Then, Laura started pranking Theo too. She made him fall on a puddle of water, and put ice down his shirt, and even covered him in red paint..." I drift back down the hallway, down to the kitchen to clean up. I finish the rest of the dishes and put the girls' toys back in their place, and by the time I make my way back upstairs, they're asleep. Alex grins proudly back at me, kisses their foreheads, and backs up so I can do the same, resting a hand on the small of my back. I turn out their lamp and leave the night light on, and then Alex and I go to our room. We change and brush our teeth and then climb into the bed. Alex pulls me closer and rests his hand on my 5 month baby bump and kisses my forehead and then my belly. " Goodnight. To infinity and beyond, little buddy." he whispers and we drift off to sleep, one big happy family.
