It'll only take a few days. Yeah right! A few days my foot! It had been about three weeks now and I was a mix of fury and loneliness. I was angry that Shane was going to be gone longer and I was lonely without him. Jack would pop in tree or four times a week to check on me and the kids and he even watched the kids for me while I went to the doctor.
I wasn't feeling very well again and when I went to the doctor he told me that I was going to have another baby. Two of them. Again! But these two were boys and they were twins. I knew that Shane would be upset that he wasn't here with me now but I had to tell him. When I got to the car I called Jack to check on the kids,
"Hey it's me. How's it going?"
"It's goin' well lovely. How about you? Everything alright?"
"Yeah, I'm fine. Do you mind if I stop by my mothers for a moment?"
"No go right ahead, the little ones and I will be fine."
"Thanks Jack, you're the best."
"Anytime." And with that I hung up. I dialed the phone and waited for an answer,
"No it's Zoe."
"Zoe! Hey is mom home?"
"Yeah, why? Are you alright?"
"Yeah, look I'll be over in a moment alright?"
"Alright. We'll be here." I hung up the phone and made my way to my mother's house. When I pulled up I walked up to the door and pulled my keys out,
"Hello?" I heard a herd of footsteps and I saw all my siblings come rushing to me,
"SAM!" I laughed as hugs were given and the usual twenty questions came running after them. The mom appeared,
"Hello Sam." I gave her a big hug,
"Hello mom. Can we talk?" She gave me look and nodded.
"Kids go do your chores." They all ran off to do their chores except Seth and Zoe who both gave me a skeptic look before going to do as they were told. Mom and I went out onto the deck in the backyard and sat down on the chairs, "So… What is it." I took a deep breathe,
"Well… I'm going to have another baby." Mom's face brightened,
"Really?" I nodded,
"Two. Boys actually." She squealed and threw her arms around my neck,
"I'm so happy! Wait," She pulled back, "Does Shane know?" I shook my head,
"I just found out today. And I don't know how to tell him. He's so far away and I want to tell him in person."
"Well he needs to know honey." I sighed,
"I know." Just then Zoe and Seth came out and sat down with us,
"We can't take it nay longer." I laughed,
"Alright, you two are going to have two new nephews." Zoe squealed and Seth grinned,
"Three boys! I'm not alone any more." We all scoffed at him but still laughed about it. Then Zoe brought up the question again,
"Does Shane know?" I shook my head,
"Just found out today."
"You should call him." I sighed,
"I know." After a few more hours of talking I decided to leave. After all the goodbyes were said I began making my way back home. I unlocked the door and found that the house was quiet,
"The little ones are asleep." I gave him a hug,
"Thanks Jack. Means a lot to me."
"Anytime. They're fun to be with. Give me a call if you need it." I will. He kissed my cheek and left. I went upstairs and checked in on the kids before heading back down to the living room. I sat on the couch and sighed. I pulled my phone out and dialed the number. It rang three times before I got an answer,
"Please state the nature of your call."
"I'm colonel Sam Plumber Wolfe and I would like to talk to talk to my husband captain Wolfe sir."
"Yes mam. One moment." I waited nervously for an answer on the other line when finally someone did answer,
"Hey, how are you? Are the kids ok? Is the family alright?"
"Shane slow down. Everyone's fine." He let out a sigh,
"But there is something I want to tell you."
"And that would be…" I took a deep breathe,
