Hepheastus and Taylor's
Are's and Angela's kids
I was on the floor playing with my little toddlers as Hepheastus was down stairs hooking up a baby monitor so we could see what they were doing. I had arranged a play date with Ares's kids. I know a bad choice but Ares married my best friend and I haven't seen her in forever. Julia and Jennifer were playing with a doll while John and Tyler are playing legos. Hepheastus came back up stairs carrying a little thing that looked like an ipod. He said it had a little camera that could see the children.
I was busy holding John and watching the kids. The door bell rang. "Hepheastus, can you get that I'm busy with John." I yelled as Hepheastus sat in a his chair. "Yeah, sure." He said getting up to get the door. He opened the door and in stepped Ares and Angela. "Angela take away Ares weapons." I scolded before letting them in. The little kids went down stairs into the play room. Leaving Hepheastus, Ares, Angela,Jessica, John, and I up stairs.
Ares smilled and randomly taggled Hepheastus. "Ares get off my husband so I can talk to him." I said ripping them away from eachother. "Why daddy on the floor?" Jennifer asked innocently walking up the stairs. "Uncle Ares thought it would be fun to taggle him." I explained as she walked up the stairs. "Is there something you need?" I asked as Jennifer tapped my shoulder.
"Tyler's crying because Matthew hurt him." Jennifer said sadly. I gave Hepheastus John and ran down stairs. I stepped over the baby gate. " Tyler what happened." I said carrying him up the stairs. I looked at his eye. He had a black eye and his arm was bleeding. "Ares, get your butt in here now."I yelled as Tyler's crying got louder. "What why?" He said coming in. " Dang did my boy do that."He said pointing at the black eye. " Yes, now get you're boy to appolgize now." I said putting a bag of ice on his eye.
Angela came into the kitchen. "I'm so sorry." Angela said for the thousandth time. "It's fine really." I said as Tyler became quiet. "Now Tyler do you want to go down stairs." I asked giving him a choice. He shook his head. "Mathew Carlisle, you get your butt up here this instant." Angela yelled pulling him up the stairs by the ear. "Time out." Angela said pointing to a corner. He walked over to a corner and sat down.
"But mom Tyler's so stupid." He yelled out in protest. Angela got up and went over to her son. She was in his face and said " Where did you learn that word." He looked over to his dad and pointed to Ares. Ares was now holding Jessica. Angela took the baby from Ares and sat on the other side of the couch. "Tyler, if you want you can go down stairs." I said walking him down. John was in Hepheastus arms and now asleep.
I picked up John and he suddenly woke up. "Well thank you for joining us Mr. Josh Carter." I said tickling his chin. "Wow akward moment." Ares said laughing. "Oh no don't you start laughing your son hurt my son now do you have an explantion or am I gonna have to beat it out of you." I said as I sat on the floor with John in my lap. "You're holding a baby, you shouldn't be talking like that." Ares scolded.
"You truely are an idiot." Hepheastus said as I played with John. "Hey you don't talk to me that way." Ares said. I gave the baby to Hepheastus and said " Ares it's our house we can talk to you an way we please." John was back in my arms and Ares was mad. "Ares, calm down your blood pressure." Angela reminded. He calmed for a moment and then started yelling. "You know what I have a lot of patience but this is it." I yelled going down stairs to see the children.
I carried John down the stairs. I sat down in a chair down stairs to watch the children. They were all playing with blocks. I didn't know I was crying until Jennifer came up to me and said " Mommie, why are you crying." I wiped my tears and said " Go back to playing I'm fine." I heard footsteps and saw Hepheastus. "What's wrong honey." He asked dragging me off to his man cave.
"This whole thing it never goes well." I replied still crying. "Okay sure, it always ends horrible but it's nice seeing my wife happy." He said getting me to go back upstairs. I put John in his little seat that keeps him up and then put him in the play pen. "Does Jessica want to play with John." I asked closing the gate. "Uh no, if Mathew can give someone a black eye I'm afraid she could only do worse." Angela said.
THe night ended with only one black eye and two cuts by a stick.
