It was only two days ago that Zane and Rikki became parents to their twin son and daughter, Noah and Olivia. They had been released from the hospital and were headed to the car. Rikki was in a wheelchair being pushed by a nurse and carrying her daughter while Zane walked beside her carrying his son.
"I just noticed this," Zane said looking down at Rikki and Olivia. "She has your eyes."
"Yeah, I guess she does." Rikki said looking into her daughter's pale blue eyes. Olivia reached her little arms up and scratched her nose as the new family arrived at their car.
Some of the guys had been nice enough to put the babies' car seats in the car already. They each placed a baby in a seat and buckled them up. When they finished they met at the front of the car, both heading to the back seat.
"What do you think you are doing?" She asked him.
"I was going to sit in the back with the babies what are you doing?" He said.
"You think I'm driving? No. No way in hell." She said.
"Well I don't want to drive either!" He said. "I'm too nervous."
"You'll be fine," she said, giving him a peck on the cheek. "Well better than me anyway."
Zane groaned and got in the driver's seat and started the car. He turned around to make sure there wasn't anybody behind them but couldn't help to look at the three most important things to him, his daughter on the right, his fiancé in the middle and his son on the left.
"You all right?" Rikki asked him.
"Yeah." He said. "Just thinking about how lucky I am."
"I know." She said back. "It's just incredible."
He smiled and pulled out of the parking lot. He headed to the interstate driving about 20 kilometers slower than everybody else.
"You know Zane," Rikki started. "I think we are more likely to get in an accident going slow than going the speed limit."
"Well I'm not taking any chances." He said.
"At least go 10 kilometers faster. We won't make it home in their lifetime the speed you're going." She said.
He rolled his eyes and pressed the gas and was going 10 kilometers faster. He couldn't help but notice people looking at him while they passed him, trying to see if he was an old man or something. He never looked back until one car came up beside him. It was going the exact same speed as him, yet the driver was staring him down. He finally looked over to see who it was.
"There that's much better." Rikki said.
"Rikki?" Zane said almost panicing.
"What?" She said, concerned.
"That's my dad over there." He said trying to be discrete.
Rikki looked over to see Harrison Bennett driving alongside his son. He was hardly looking at the road mostly at Zane. Luckily, he couldn't see the girl he didn't want his son to be with and their children because the windows in his car were tinted dark.
"You know," she started. "I used to hate these dark windows and now I see why you like them."
Zane nodded along.
"What do we do?" She asked.
"I guess just drive home." He said. "I mean I'm pretty sure he knows where I live and if he doesn't, he could easily find out."
"What about me?" She questioned. "What about the babies?"
"I can leave the car on." He said. "Just stay in here. I'm pretty sure I can handle my dad."
"All right." She said, not completely sure he would be right.
"It will be okay." He said after seeing the look of doubt in her eyes.
"Okay." Rikki said.
Zane drove them home and Harrison followed. They parked right next to each other and stepped outside of their cars. Before Zane could step out of his, he reach back and grabbed Noah and Olivia's hands.
"Wish daddy luck." He said to them.
He could only give Rikki a look of concern before stepping out of the car. Rikki then grabbed her son's and daughter's tiny hands, hoping Zane was right. He could handle his father.
