"So what are you going to name them?"
Audrey asked almost jumping up and down like a three year old.I
bit my lip looking at them.
know I am going to name our little boy Wyatt. No matter what Dad
or Mom says he is Wyatt. Tanner's brother deserves that. His
first nephew is going to be named after him." I felt the tears
forming in my eyes. I felt a hand on my leg making me look at the
owner. Emmy was rubbing it gently.
"That's amazing Ry. I'm sure if Wyatt was
here today I'm sure he would love it." She smiled gently. Audrey
put the paint roller down looking at the newly painted
"So what are you going to name the little
girl?" She asked looking at me before she started to clean up.
Emmy got up and started to help with her.
"Well that's where it gets fuzzy. We
haven't really talked too much about it but I love the name
Bailey." Emmy looked over.
"Like the little girl from your dream?" I
told both of them in detail about my dreams to get the thoughts
out in the open. I nodded.
"If she becomes anything like that little
girl, I will be so happy. She was perfect. She was everything I
want my daughter to be and I'm sure she will be." I looked down
at the hand on my belly that was rubbing the sensitive skin that
I didn't even know was there. "You guy must think I'm crazy." I
sighed looking up.
"No, you're not crazy Ry. Your
just….different." Audrey said putting her hand on my shoulder.
Emmy sat next to me and laid her head on my leg looking up at
"You're just coping with the pain of almost
losing everything, and I think that's fine."I nodded looking
around the now empty room.
"Where are the boys? They should have been
back by now." I said looking at the time on my cell phone. Emmy
"You know boys they probably stopped to get
like 30 pounds of food in there stomach." She laughed standing
up. "Are you hungry Ryan?" She asked me as I rubbed my
"I'm starving. Audrey, you hungry?" I asked
looking at her. She nodded as we all got up to go to the
will cook us something." Emmy nodded opening the frig to start
"Are we almost done? I kind of want to get
back to my pregnant girlfriend here." Tanner sighed as he helped
put the last of the boxes in the truck.

him a look before the back of his neck turned red.
"Now I'm curious." TJ said looking at the
back of Hunters head.
wanted to propose to Emmy." He smiled. "She wanted to start a
family. Me, her, Asher and a new little baby. I thought we should
do it the proper way and get married." He pulled into the parking
lot of the mall.
"So you're proposing to Emmy, when are you
going to do it?" Tanner asked as they stated to walk in. TJ was
staring at Victoria secret with a hungry look. "Dude just go in
and get what you need. Call when you're done." TJ started to
smirk before running off towards the store. "So about you
prosing…." He said trailing off. Hunter looked over as they got
to the jewelers.
"Well we had a long talk yesterday after my
mom and Dad took Asher for the night. She told me that she was
jealous of you and Ryan." He said looking out of the window as
they waited in line.
"Why is she jealous of us?" He looked at
him weird. "I got my 18 year old girlfriend pregnant with twins.
I was almost, we were almost, killed in battle."
"That's it, that's what she is jealous of."
"Almost getting killed….maybe Emmy needs a
little bit of therapy…" He said trailing off. Hunter shook his
"No, not the almost getting killed. She was
jealous that if we didn't come home, Ryan would always have a
part of you, the baby or babies now. You would always be there in
her face, they heart there body. But she didn't have that. She
didn't get pregnant. She didn't have a part of me. All she had
was Asher.If we didn't come home, it would be like I was never
there. Sure some pictures and some memories. But not physically
there. That tore her up, than with Ryan falling into a coma."
Hunter closed his eyes and shook his head. Tanner looked at
Hunter before looking at his hand.
"So…" He trailed off looking back at

"Banks." The guy smiled.
"Sure Mr. Banks. Your ring is ready get

till the man came back. "Here you go Mr. Banks." Hunter opened
the small box and smiled showing Tanner the ring
