I woke up to the sound of knocking on the front door. I heard
Tanner groan pulling his pillow over his head. "Go away." He
yelled. I giggled at him sitting up pulling on his t-shirt and a
pair of shorts. I heard the door knock again making Tanner pull
the pillow tighter to his head. I got out of bed and walked to
the front door opening it to see Emmy and Audrey standing there
holding paint buckles and a whole bunch of other stuff.
"What are you doing?" I asked raising my eye brow at them.
"We are here to help to paint the nursery for the twins." Audrey
said walking in to the living room before walking into the almost
empty nursery. "Where is Tanner?" She asked looking around.
"Shut up, I'm sleeping." He groaned from the bedroom. I giggled
at Audrey's face.
"Go get up the paint cans and the tarp on the floor and I'll go
wake up cranky."
"I can hear you, you know." He groaned again.
"Oh I know Mr. Cranky." I smiled walking into the still dark
bedroom. Tanner was lying on his stomach with the blanket pulled
up to his hips. I got a full view of the tattoos on his back. I
sat down gently holding my bump for support. "Come on Cranky,
just up." I smiled running my hand down his back.
"I don't want to Ryan. Go away, I'm sleeping." He groaned
swatting at me gently with his good arm.
"No, come on Tanner I will make it up to you later." He moved the
pillow so he could look at me with one eye.
"How are you going to make it up?" He asked me with a small smirk
on his lips.
"Oh you know….make dinner." I giggled getting up. He groaned
again getting up pulling the sheet around his waist was walking
to the dresser.
"Yeah that's what I wanted to hear." He smiled at me before
pulling on some boxers before pulling of a pair of shorts.
"What do you want to hear?" I smiled at him as he wrapped his
arms around my neck smiling down at me.
"Maybe another last night." He bit his lip before pressing his
lips to my forehead.
"Hmmm I don't know." I giggled at him feeling my belly kick
Tanner were it was pressed to his stomach. He looked down and
smiled at my big belly.
"Ryan what are you two doing? Come on we have to paint the
nursery before the furniture comes." I heard Emmy yelled from the
bedroom making Tanner laugh.
"We are coming gee patience." He called back. He put his hand on
my stomach before he pulled on a t-shirt. I walked into the
nursery to see everything set up to paint. I looked at the paint
and then the walls.
"That's going to look perfect. When are they going to pick up all
the furniture?" I asked sitting down on a chair as Tanner walked
in adjusting his arm sling.
"Morning Cranky. You are not needed here. You are to go to our
apartment before you go to pick up TJ to get the furniture we
ordered. Now off you go." Emmy shooed him. Tanner raised his eye
"Okay, I guess I shall go visit your brother I guess." He smiled
before kissing me. "I love you, all of you." He smiled before
walking out. I looked at Emmy and Audrey as they started to paint
the room with the rollers.
"So Emmy planning on any more kids?" I asked smiling at Audrey as
she handed me a bag of chips. She dropped her brush into the
paint bucket making it splash her and the tarp on the floor.
"Ha funny you should say that…" She said trailing off. I raised
my eye brow at her. Audrey started to laugh at the yellow that
was now covering Emmy as she tried to wipe it away.
"Someone has a secret." I giggled. She looked over before she
"Hunter and I want to have another baby." She said tensing
waiting for us to yell at her. I looked at Audrey as she looked
at me and shrugged. Emmy opened her eyes to look at us.
"Emmy that's great! But what brought this on." I asked sifting in
my seat as it started to get painful on my back. She sighed.
"I thought I lost him. It got me thinking, what if I did lose
him? I would have nothing of him left. I would be where I was
before, alone, scared. But now I would heartbroken. I would never
get to see what our kids would look like. I would only know how
much he wanted them. So I said that I want to have another baby."
She sighed sitting down. I looked at me cocking my head to the
"Do you really want another baby or do you just want Hunter to be
with you?" She looked at me.
"I always wanted another baby. But now, now I crave a baby. I
want to be pregnant again. I want to have your brother's baby."
She nodded looking at me.
"I know he wants you to have his baby too." I sighed looking at
Audrey painting and looking at us. Emmy hugged my legs.
"I hope so." She nodded.
"Come on girlie back to painting if want this done soon." Emmy
got back up, grabbed her paint brush and got back to painting. I
sat there in silence just thinking till I felt a hand on my
shoulder. I looked up at Audrey. "So have you?"
"Huh? Have I what?" I said scrunching up my nose and looking at
her. She laughed.
"I asked if you thought of any baby names yet." She said going
back to painting.
"Yeah I did. I'm sure for the boy but not really for Tanner's
little girl." I nodded rubbing my belly. Emmy looked over.
"Really what you got?" They both looked at me waiting for me to
dish out the names for my little babies………
