………………………… “Good morning Sgt Tanner” The Nurse smiled at him as he stepped off the elevator “Before you go in and see Breana the doctor wants to talk to you” J.J. Stopped walking and looked at her.
“B’s okay isn’t she?” he asked swallowing hard
“The doctor is in his office right through there I think you should let him explain” She pointed to the Doctors door J.J. hurried over and knocked and didn’t wait for an answer.
“You wanted to talk to me about B?” he demanded
“Yes J.J. and good morning” the Doctor smiled and leant back in his chair “And why the anxious expression”
“Because the nurse wouldn’t tell me anything only you wanted to talk to me”
“Sit down for a minute and breathe” he got up and got a cup of water from the cooler and handed it to J.J. “Breana is fine” J.J. sighed with relief and took the water offered.
“So what do you want to talk to me about?”
“Well after you left last night we decided to try to bring her out of the coma” the Doctor went and sat back down and clasped his hands on the desk in front of him “we also did another Ultra sound on her to check on the baby and…” he reached in to his draw and pulled out a ream of pictures “There” he put them in front of J.J..
“I’m sorry doc I’m a sniper but my eyes can’t for the life of me work out these things” He chuckled “What am I supposed to be looking at?”
“These’s two things here and here” he pointed with his pen to two small blank spaces
“Okay but I still don’t get it” J.J. looked lost
“Okay that is two hearts and these are four tiny arms and four tiny legs” he pointed again at places on the picture.
“Twins” J.J. looked up at the doctor “A twin having twins”
‘It does happen” the Doctor smiled “But it means that I want her on virtual bed rest for the remaining 6 months of this pregnancy”
“Do you know what my wife is like for running around” J.J. groaned not lifting his eyes from the pictures “She is out of state at least 3 times a month with work”
“Well she’ll have to stop with that or I get to keep her in the hospital” He grinned “Now would you like to go see your Wife?”
“Hell yeah” J.J. smiled getting up “Does she know about the babies?”
“No like I said we’ve only just brought he round and she’s still sleepy and groggy” The doctor walked to the door and Opened it and waited for J.J. “and I think she’d rather hear it from you than me” he walked down the hall and opened another door. “How you feeling Mrs. Tanner”
“Like I’ve been kicked by my horse and then run down by a tractor” I croaked “And I’m sleepy”
“Well I think you need to see the person I found in the hall” He held the door open and J.J. stepped into the room and smiled at me. I felt my breath catch and my heart race sending the monitors beeping like it was Armageddon.
“Hey Baby” he murmured crossing the room and kissing me with more passion than I think I’ve ever felt.
“Okay I think you’ll have to ease up Marine unless you want me to ban you from being in here B has to rest” The doctor teased turning the sound off on the monitors “Now you have 10  minutes before I want her to be sleeping again”
“Yes Sir” J.J. smiled sitting on the edge of the bed and holding my hands in his,
“I didn’t know you were back” I murmured lifting my hand to the side of his face and rubbing my thumb across his cheek as he kisedmy wrist.

“I’ve been back almost 3 weeks”
“Did they bring you home?”
“Yeah but the whole platoon came home within a week” he smiled “I love you so much and you scared the life out of me”
“It wasn’t a bed of roses for me either” I groaned.
“I know” he stoked my hair “So what has the doctor told you?” he watched as the tears filled my eyes.
“I almost died” I felt my voice cracking “I lost a baby” J.J. closed his eyes and nodded “Everything happens for a reason right…? it wasn’t right for us to have a baby right then… right?” I wanted J.J.’s assurance that he wasn’t going to blame me for what had happened.
“It wasn’t right for that one” he soothed holding my face in his hands before he dropped on of them to rest lightly on my slightly swollen stomach “But for the little B and Flynn you have in there right now it’s the right time” A tear rolled down huis face as he smiled at me.
“What?... what do you?’

“We’re still having a baby… well babies I’ve seen the pictures and the doctor talk to me and I don’t know if it’s a boy and a girl, or two boy’s or two perfect little girls but we’re still having babies” he put his hand back to my face and kissed me again “And it makes me love you more and more than I thought I could”. I was in shock after everything that had happened I was still going to be a mommy and he was going to be the perfect Daddy…………….
