Family

It has been four months since Kate and Humphrey have married. Things have happened since then. Kate and Garth have taught Humphrey a few things they have learned in alpha school and became a successful hunter. All and all, things were obviously going well because Kate was now three months into pregnancy.

Lilly was watching her pups, Caesar and Star, playing about in the den. Caesar had red fur with yellow hair, and Star was yellow with white hair which often gets in her eyes In another section of the den, Humphrey was talking to Garth about becoming a father.

"It's really not that hard," Garth was saying, "Kate told me about the time you were playing with that bear cub, and you also wanted to protect everyone you love. Trust me, a puppy is not that different."

"Maybe you're right," Humphrey replied, "But what if they misbehave."

"I know it's hard for you and the pup, but they need to know the rules, or else you'll ruin them."

"True…"

"Listen, I know you're nervous, but I think you are ready for the task. I have seen you 'grow up' for a while now. I see you're shaping up to be a great parent."

As if it were on cue, Tony rushes up to Lilly. "Where's Humphrey," he asks.

"I'm right here," Humphrey answers, "What is it?"

"Kate is wondering where you are."

"Why?"

"It's time."

"Really!"

"Why are you standing around here for? Get moving!"

Immediately, Humphrey dashes out the den.

Half an hour has passed and Kate had given birth to two pups, one boy and one girl. Humphrey looked at them, and back to Kate. "They're beautiful," Humphrey said, "You did great. I'm so proud of you."

Kate gave a weak smile and replied, "Thank you. After what I have been through, that was all I wanted to hear."

"So have you thought of any names?"

Kate looks down at the girl, who was yellow with black hair. "I think Madi would be a good name for her, but as for our son…"

The boy was white with yellow hair and paws. "How about Wildfire," Humphrey suggested.

Kate looked at her son, then back at Humphrey. "I think that's a suitable name. After all, he does have wild hair."

They both laughed. "Kate…"

"Yes?"

"I love you."

"I love you too."

Humphrey lay down next to Kate. He had a good feeling that he was going to make a great father.
