I smiled at her when we got done with throwing pillows at each
other knowing we couldn't actually have a pillow fight. I don't
want to lose my baby. The words daddy said were stuck in my head
no matter how hard I'm trying to keep them out of my head but it
isn't really working right now and I don't know why it isn't
"Colie I want to see your baby bump!" Emma said it was two weeks
later and I have a little baby bump. I pulled up my shirt and she
smiled "I'm Aunty Emma." She said to my baby inside of me I
smiled at her. "Emma wanna go walking?" I asked her knowing the
dogs needs out. She nodded and grabbed Sasha's leash. The doctor
told me that if I walk a lot like everyday during my pregnancy
then the labor pain will be easier to deal with and labor will be
easier. So I'm walking every day twice a day just no more
jogging. We smiled when we saw Blake half way through our walk.
He has been so supported so far and I'm only 1 and a half month
pregnant not nine months.
"Colie how are you?" He asked me I smiled at him "I'm fine baby."
I said he smiled at me "Any sign of a baby bump yet?" he asked me
I nodded and smiled. "Can I see?" He asked me right in the middle
of the park "Not here." I said he nodded and kissed my lips.
School would begins in two weeks but we're already 12th graders
on the online class. Emma does it just to do it so she will pass
ninth grade with flying colors. "See ya at class." I said smiling
kissing his lips then we walked home where Blake soon showed up.
"Can I see it now Colie?" He asked I rolled my eyes but lifted up
my shirt and I saw him smiling wide. There was a knock at the
door and I got up to answer it and smiled at Eva and Holly. "Hi
come on in." I said she smiled I pulled out my lab-top and
started school work if I keep up the pace I'm on now I will be a
high school graduate next week. "Do you have a baby bump?" Eva
asked me I nodded "I didn't have a baby bump until my fifth
month." Eva said wow then why do I have one so early? "You might
be having twins. It's likely if you or Blake are a twin but
you're not." She said and then she bit her tongue. "What do you
know?" I asked her she shook her head no. "Holly needs her diaper
changed." Eva said Emma came by picked Holly up and went to the
work in progress but the nursery and changed her diaper "Nothing
that I should say." She said "Tell me. You promised to be here
for me no matter what so tell me." I said "Fine you have a twin."
She said "Sister or brother?" I asked "brother." She said "What
is his name? Is he still alive? Where is he?" I asked "Jacob.
Yes. California. With our aunt she kidnapped him but daddy is
Daddy why daddy? I thought but said "When is daddy getting him?"
I asked Eva "in three weeks after you find out. If you're having
twins or not. Trust me they will tell you next month." Eva said
and I nodded. "Will we meet him?" I asked "yeah daddy is coming
down here. Thinking of moving to Orlando. But last time you saw
him it was your first birthday so of course you wouldn't remember
him. Why do you think you never saw baby pictures of you? Because
once he got kidnapped all your photos got hidden. They're under
momma's bed." Eva said biting he tongue knowing she done let the
cat out of the bag now.
We got up and walked into momma's room and she pulled the crate
out from under the bed and showed me all the babies' pictures.
There was a baby boy with our icy blue eyes and strawberry blonde
hair. I was a cute baby we got up off the floor only to see momma
standing there I could tell she was mad. "What were you doing?"
She snapped at us so I decided to snap back "Why did you hide the
fact that I had a twin brother?" "Don't you answer my question
with a question." She said "Basically I answered your question."
I said to her. "Nicole Hope don't get sassy with me young lady."
Momma said I rolled my eyes "Lose the sassiness Nicole." Momma
said "Tell us about Jake." I said Momma eyes turned to Eva "Well
it slipped out. I didn't promise I wouldn't tell her." She said I
wonder who I got my sassiness from then it sure wasn't Eva.
"Colie there is nothing I have to say about this case close." She
said "Momma there is to something to say like the fact that I
have a twin brother who I don't remember!" I said getting all
worked up. "Nicole Hope Summerland Calm Down." Momma said you
know I'm in trouble if she said my whole name she hates calling
the last name.
"Nicole Hope I will tell you when I feel like you're ready. But
you're not ready not now." She said with that she stormed off I
picked up my phone and dialed daddy's number "Colie don't." Eva
warned but I didn't listen "Daddy I know about Jake." I said
"Only his name I'm guessing?" he said "Yes sir. What can I know?"
I asked "In three weeks when we move down there you will meet
him. Right now Alice has a doctor's appointment she's five months
along now." He said "With a brother?" I asked "we don't want to
know the sex." He said "Okay daddy. I love you." I said "I love
you to Colie." He said wow that wasn't so bad. I looked at Emma
who was ready to go swimming so I got my bathing suit on and we
went to the pool knowing the water would feel good after what
just happened we didn't expect all of this.
I'm sitting in the doctor's office with Blake right beside me
holding my hand "Nicole and Blake you are having twins. That is
why you're showing earlier than some. You will find out the sex
next month and then we will go from there." Doctor Swift said we
nodded and saw the babies on the screen. I smiled she showed me
the two different heads. She printed off four copies handed two
to me and two to him. I scanned one and emailed it to daddy.
Although him and my brother are coming here in two days. I get to
meet my long lost brother. He got custody of him because momma
already has me and her kids from Jack and doesn't want him she is
fine. I guess she was taking it hard still.
And I wasn't being much easy on her but I don't care anymore. She
had no right to hide the fact that I have a twin brother whom I
get to see in two days! Eva and I are going out to eat with daddy
and him. Jake does know that I'm pregnant and he doesn't care. We
haven't talked but daddy tells him everything and he told him
everything about Eva and me and Bryan. Who will be flying down
next week for a weekend. He is thrilled to be an uncle again but
told me "Colie you should have waited three more years." I'm a
high school graduate with one more year of college to go which
I'm almost done with.
I wore my white dress (Yes I can still wear it!) and my knee
length hair was down. I had my rainbows on my feet. I was waiting
for Eva to come so we could go meet daddy and Jake. I smiled at
Holly who was asleep in the back seat. Eva was just as nervous as
I was about meeting Jake. Jake was Bryan's little buddy and I was
hers buddy. We arrived on time and I smiled when daddy came up
then a guy who is 5'8 came walking up with our icy blue eyes and
strawberry blonde hair. "Hey." He said so coolly, he has a six
pack; tanned, tall. Needless to say my brother was sexy! Although
I shouldn't be thinking that!
I smiled at him "Colie and Jake ya'll are twins." Daddy said I
smiled we shook hands. Over the next four hours we got really
close even him and Eva. When it was time for my curfew even
though I'm meeting my brother I still have one tonight we hugged
good-bye "See you later Colie." He said I nodded; momma is
meeting him Saturday and she is okay with that. I smiled at my
belly I'm having twins! Don't know the sexes yet but I know I
want to. Holly slept the whole way home too. Jake is good with
kids too! Emma smiled at me "Momma and daddy are moving down
here! Next door too!" she squealed. We hugged and I smiled. Her
and Gracie have clicked as well too!
