(Jane is just waking up….she reluctantly opens her eyes)
Jane: ahhh (yawns) another day….(looks at alarm clock) shit George must be dead tired. I wonder why he didn't wake me earlier…(thinks: I mean George is a nice guy but he would not stay till noon…at his sister in law's house.)
Oh MY GOD something must be wrong….
(jumps out of bed and run into the living room)
(eyes popping clear out of her head.. Jane sees something that could never be true)
Kevin is asleep in the rocking chair…his feet on the matching rocking ottoman with Lexi in the nook of his left arm and Noah in the nook of his right arm. The three loves of Jane's life are all sound asleep in front of her. As much as she yearns to speak with Kevin she knows that if he did indeed spend his night looking after Noah and Alexis then he NEEDS his sleep.
It is now 12:45PM and Alexis Marie Doyle is slowly awakening for her next feeding. She begins to fuss and seconds later Jane is scooping Lexi into a gentle cradle hold against her chest. But Jane is not fast enough as Lexi has managed to wake her father and her brother Noah is beginning to stir. As Kevin opens his eyes he sees the woman who has not left his dreams let alone his daily thoughts since she ran out on him, over a year and a half ago.
Kevin: Jane? Jane…
Kevin: No Jane….Let Me! I AM SO SO SO SORRY! But how could you not tell me that I am a father. I missed the birth of my two children….Hell I found out I had two children only 36 hours ago….
Jane: (interrupts Kevin) How would you even know that they are yours? And what makes you want to be part of MY children's lives now?
Kevin: HELLO JANE…BUT YOU WOULDN'T ANSWER MY CALLS, MY MESSAGES. YOU AVOIDED ME AT ALL COSTS! I WOULD HAVE BEEN THERE FOR YOU , JANE…I LOVE YOU AND I ALWAYS HAVE AND I WAS A COMPLETE AND OUTRIGHT ASSHOLE TO TREAT WRITE THAT ARTICLE….I SHOULD HAVE TRIED HARDER TO GET AHOLD OF YOU…I AM SO SORRY AND NOW LOOKING AT NOAH MATTHEW AND ALEXIS MARIE I REGRET EVERYTHING I HAVE DONE…I CAN'T BELIEVE MY OWN STUPIDITY!...AND …AND….AND…
Jane: Kevin, Do you really mean everything that you just said?
Kevin: OF COURSE I DO! I WOULD NEVER LIE NOR DO ANYTHING TO HURT YOU EVER AGAIN…AFTER ALL YOU JANE ARE THE ONE AND ONLY WOMAN I HAVE EVER TRULY LOVED AND WILL ALWAYS LOVE, ALL THE DAYS OF MY LIFE…..AND LEXI AND NOAH ARE A BEAUTIFUL TRIBUTE TO THE LOVE WE ONCE SHARED AND I BELIEVE WE WILL ALWAYS SHARE!
Jane: OH MY GOD, KEVIN…I LOVE YOU AND I WAS STUPID NOT TO TELL YOU I WAS PREGNANT. I…I ….I …
Kevin: SHUT UP JANE AND COME HERE!
(he opens his arms and Jane rushes into the embrace. Jane and Kevin/Noah and Alexis share their first hug as a family…and as a family they shall hopefully stay forever and always!)
Jane: (still in Kevin's arms) Hey Kevin just one question….how did you know Lexi and Noah full names?
Kevin: Well I was filling in for James, you know James…he's my coworker from the paper. Anyways…he was getting married and, being such an awesome guy, (Kevin smiles at his selfpraise) I agreed to fill in for him in the announcements department. Guess who called and announced the birth of Alexis Marie Doyle and Noah Matthew Doyle to a Jane Nichols….
Jane: (interrupts Kevin… again) [gasps] IT WAS TESS….THAT EXPLAINS SO MUCH!
YOU KNOW KEV YOU REALLY ARE AN AMAZING AND STANDUP MAN…YOU COULD HAVE PRETENDED THAT YOU DIDN'T HAVE CHILDREN.
Kevin: Well I must be a pretty amazing man in order too allow you to call me Kev which you know I can not stand!
(both Kevin and Jane burst into laughter)
