A/N: Alright, so this may well be the last chapter. I hope you've all enjoyed my story. I would like to say thanks to all of you who've put me on alerts, favorites, and who've reviewed. This started out as something I wanted to try and you guys made it a great experience. Be sure to let me know if you want an Epilogue.
Paul had just left to go pick up something for his mom. I for one don't think it's really for his mom but I guess I'll let it go for now since I've got my hands full with the twins. The moment he walked out the door they started crying. I found some popsicles in the back of the freezer and let the twins chew on them until I could find their teethers and put them in the freezer. They seemed to enjoy it as they had quieted down almost immediately. I got to work cleaning all the bottles from earlier knowing that I would need more for later.
I was almost done when I heard a car pull up. A couple seconds later Paul came in carrying the take out he'd gotten us for dinner. He set it on the table and went to grab us some plates.
"Mmm, smells good. What'd ya get?" I asked as I snaked my arms around his stomach. He turned and planted a kiss on my lips before answering.
"Chinese." Was his reply. I released my hold on him and followed him to the table where he proceeded to dish us some food. We ate in a comfortable silence with the twins sitting in their high chairs. They started to whine so I got up and grabbed each of them a bottle. I reclined their seats so they could lay back and drink their bottles. Once we were done with dinner I started cleaning the kitchen when Paul came up to me.
"I'll finish this. Why don't you go take a hot bath?" he asked me. Now, that right there was just adding to my suspicion that he was up to something. I decided to go ahead and comply because honestly, a hot bath was sounding wonderful right about now.
"Fine, but don't think that I don't know that you're up to something." I told him. The look that flashed across his face told me all I needed to know. He was indeed up to something. I'll figure it out eventually.
"I don't know what you're talking about." He replied looking calm. I'm sure that's not how he feels on the inside. "I just thought that you could use a little bit of time to yourself to relax since you've been with the kids all day." Nice cover up but it's not fooling me.
"Okay, okay" I said holding my hands up. "You're right. I could use a hot bath." I said as I walked over to him. "You know what would make it even better?" I whispered in his ear, making sure he could feel my breath on his skin. I saw him gulp.
"W-what?" he stuttered out. I let out a small giggle. He cleared his throat and his eyes had darkened. "What?" he asked again.
"If you were to join me." I told him. "They're almost asleep." I said nodding my head towards the twins in their high chairs. "We could put them to bed and take a bath together." I said while pressing myself against his chest and running my hand up and down his back.
"I'd love to but I've got to finish some stuff first." He said somewhat sadly. I frowned. What stuff does he have to do? "How about I put them to bed, do my stuff and then come join you after I'm done?" he said. "That way you can still have a little time to yourself." I sighed in defeat.
"Sure, don't be too long though please." I told him.
"I won't. Now why don't you go get your bath ready while I get these two ready for bed?" he told me as he swatted me on the ass.
"I can help you. Besides, what about their bed time story? I always read to them." I told him.
"It's fine. I can do it and we can read to them afterwards." He said. I huffed. He always thinks of everything.
"Fine, but as soon as we're done I'm reading to them whether they're awake or not." I said as I crossed my arms. He smirked at me. Okay, so I'm acting childish. Sue me, I love reading to my babies. I walked over and kissed the twins on their heads and then made my way to the bathroom. Now, if only I can figure out what he's got up his sleeve.
That was close. I don't know what I would've done if she argued with me about taking a bath. My whole plan would have gone down the drain and been ruined if she would've put up a fight like she normally does. I grabbed the twins from their chairs and made my way towards their room. Once inside, I put them in their cribs and went to grab the package from earlier and a few other things. I wanted to make sure everything was in place. I waited until I heard the water turn on before I started getting the kids ready for bed. I wanted to make sure Bella wasn't going to come out for anything.
Once the kids were all ready for bed and in their cribs, I made my way to the bathroom to join Bella. I only hope that I can think coherently once I'm in the same room as her, especially since we'll both be naked. You mean especially since you were cock blocked by the twins earlier? I walked into the bathroom to find Bella looking as beautiful as ever. She was laid back with her eyes closed. She must have sensed me come in because she turned her head and looked at me.
"eyHey." She said lazily. God, I hope she doesn't fall asleep again. That would totally ruin this. I could feel myself on the verge of a panic attack and I immediately calmed my breathing. It would ruin your plan more if you were to pass out you idiot. I quickly stripped off my clothes and climbed in behind her. She lay back against my chest and I held her. We stayed like that for a while before I picked up her bath sponge and squirted some of her body wash on it. I lathered it up and took the time to wash her body for her. Once I was done we decided it was time to get out. I wrapped her in a fluffy towel and did the same to myself before we headed to our room. Bella threw on a night gown and I threw on a pair of pajama pants. We made our way to the twins' room hand in hand.
Once we got to the door opened it and let Bella in first she walked over to Sarah's crib only to see it empty. She turned around and looked at me.
"Why didn't you put Sarah in her crib?" she asked. I shrugged my shoulders.
"She didn't want to be by herself." I replied. She made her way towards Chaske's crib and I could feel myself getting more nervous by the second. I took a deep breath. It's almost time. She finally made it to his crib and I held my breath until I heard her gasp. She turned around to look at me and I could see the tears in her eyes and the small smile on her face.
"Yes!" she said as she threw herself into my arms.
"You mean it? You'll be stuck with me forever." I told her as she was placing kisses all over my face.
"It's the other way around. You'll be stuck with me forever." She said.
"I wouldn't have it any other way." I told her as I rested my fore head against hers.
"Me either." She whispered through her tears.
I stood up and helped her to her feet. She grabbed my hand and pulled me back over to the crib. We stood there looking at the sleeping twins for a while before she spoke.
"How'd you come up with this idea?" she said gesturing to the onesie's the twins were wearing. Chaske's saying "will you" and Sarah's saying "marry mommy".
"I don't know really. It just sorta popped into my head because you're always putting them in those one's with funny sayings.
"Is this what you picked up earlier?" she asked.
"Yeah." I replied. She turned to look at me.
"I believe you're missing something." She said in a teasing tone while waving her fingers in my direction. I smiled at her.
"Nope, but I believe you are." I said as I walked over to the changing table and grabbed the ring box that I had stashed there earlier. I walked over to her and opened it up. I took out the simple engagement ring with the small diamond on in and took her hand in mine. "Will you do me a favor and marry me?" I said playfully. She put her finger to her chin and smiled.
"You know what, I think I changed my mind." She said playfully. "Forever is an awful long time."
"I'll love you forever." I said while smiling at her.
"Hmmm, in that case, then yes, I'll marry you." She said. I took that moment to put the ring on her finger where it'll stay forever. I kissed her palm and then picked her up bridal style. She let out a giggle.
"What do you think you're doing?" she asked.
"I believe we've got something to celebrate." I said wiggling my eye brows at her. She smirked.
"You're right. I believe we do." She said. That was all I needed to hear before carrying her to our room where we indeed celebrated. We eventually feel asleep in each other's arms. Soon I'd be able to do this with my wife and I liked the sound of that.
