Five years later
Nathan turned his key in the lock, and walked into a really quiet house. "Hales?" he called
"I'm in the living room babe." Nathan set his things down and made his way to the living room. As he passed the main entry way closet, he heard giggling. A big smile crept on his face as he reached for the door knob. He pulled his coat off, opened the closet door, absent mindedly threw his coat in there, and went to close the door.
"Dad!" The little boy screeched. "You threw your coat on me. Didn't you see me?" Nathan looked down at the raven haired, blue eyed boy.
"I'm sorry Jamie, I didn't even see you in there. What were you doing in the closet anyways?" Nathan smile, playing along with the four year old boy.
"I was hiding from you dad. Duh." the little boy stood in front of his dad, with his hands placed on his hips.
"You are around your mother way too much." Nathan laughed. James had all of Nathan's physical features, but he was definitely his mothers child.
"Well maybe if you weren't always on the road." James said sadly, shooting his eyes at the floor.
"Hey, come here buddy." Nathan squatted down to James's level and looked him in the eye. "I don't like being away either, I miss you and your mom way too much when I'm gone."
"I missed you too daddy. Come look what I can do." The little boy, after feeling better, grabbed his fathers hand and dragged him into the living room where his mother was sitting.
"Hey babe. I missed you." Nathan bent down to give his wife a passionate kiss.
"Eww Dad stop that." James said disgusted behind him.
"I missed you too." Haley laughed.
"And how is my little girl?" Nathan cooed rubbing Haley's baby bump. After feeling a kick, Nathan smiled widely. "You missed your daddy huh."
"Dad guess what?" James asked, but didn't even bother waiting for his father to say what. "Me and mom picked out a name for my sister, you are going to love it. We are going to name her-"
"Jamie," Haley stopped him. "We will tell him later remember, mommy wants to bet the one to tell him."
"Okay. Sit down dad, I want to show you something." The little boy said excitedly.
Nathan smiled at his giddiness and took a seat on the couch next to his wife.
"Okay bud, lets see." He watched as James pulled out his little tike basket ball hoop, placing it in a spot where is father could see.
"You ready dad. Are you watching?"
"I'm watching Jamie." After looking to make sure his father was watching, Jamie grabbed the ball and ran toward the 4ft hoop, jumping up, and dunking the ball.
"Did you see me daddy. I did it just like you." He ran over to stand in front of his Dad. "You saw me right Dad. You want me to it again."
"I saw you bud. That was awesome. You are going to be a pro, just like me one day." Nathan gave James a big hug and let him go. "Now why don't you go practice on your hoop upstairs in your room, while I talk to mommy."
"Okay, but Dad boys don't hug each other, so maybe just a high five next time." Jamie informed him before running up the stairs to his room. Nathan watched on laughing at the little boys antics.
"my little man is growing up." Nathan said, his gaze still on the stairs James had just run up.
"Aww, you feeling old baby?" Haley teased rubbing his back.
"Maybe a little. How are you feeling Hales?" He asked looking lovingly at his wife of five yeas.
"Perfect." She smiled.
"Good. So about this name. What did you guys come up with?" Nathan asked curiously, he couldn't wait for his little girl to be born. With Jamie he was nervous, but he was anticipating this one. He hoped that she looked just like Haley.
"Well it was Jamie's idea, but I liked it to." She started and Nathan nodded. "We were thinking Jordan." She continued, and waited for his response.
"It's perfect Hales." He bent down and gave her a light kiss. "Where did Jamie come up with that?"
"Well there was this special on T.V. about Michael Jordan, and he remembered that he was one of your favorite players, and that's when he thought of the name."
"Well our boy is a genius because I love it." Nathan smiled. "He reminds me so much of you."
"Me, I swear all he did was talk about you when you were gone. He made me miss you even more."
"Aww I missed you too babe." He leaned over and placed another kiss on Haley's lips, this time things were a little more heated. Nathan brought his hand down and under Haley's shirt, gently caressing her baby bump.
"Nate we can't do this now, Jamie is right upstairs." Haley gently pushed him away, and looked at his cute little pout. "Later, I promise."
"Okay, I'm holding you to that." He wrapped his arms around her, and she leaned her head on his shoulder, cuddling her body into his. The two of them sat their watching T.V in a peaceful silence.
"I think I'm going to quit." Nathan said abruptly, breaking the silence.
"What?" Haley was confused
"Basketball, I think I'm going to retire after this year."
"Are you sure Nate? I don't want you to regret making a decision like that."
"I'm positive Hales. I've been playing for a good seven years now. I would rather quit and spend more time with my family. I hate being away from you and Jamie. Plus we have our little girl coming in a few months. I want to do this." He said with a smile. It was something he has been thinking about for awhile.
"Alright, If you feel it's the right thing to do, I'll back you 100 percent." Haley smiled.
"Thanks Hales for everything. I don't know what I would have done if you didn't let me back in your life."
"I love yah Nate. I couldn't imagine living my life with someone else."
"I love you too. Its always going to be me and you, Hales and our little family"
"Always and Forever."
