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 brows.
“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 sighed.
“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 side.
“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………
