Disclaimer: While I love Twilight I do not own it, however the little cuties that star as the babies are all figments as my imaginations.
"Okay one, two and three." I said counting the heads of my kids as I pushed them through the door of the building.
"Mommy we're going." Connor said linking hands with his little brother as we walked into the building.
"Guys Mommy has a big meeting, and wait I only had a count of three. Who am I missing, Lily, Connor and Luke... where the hell is Violet?" I asked. Four kids under the age of seven, what was I thinking?
"Mommy, look at the fishies." I heard a voice call and I let out a sigh of relief.
"Violet Baby, keep up with the group." I said picking her up and putting her on the hip.
"Mommy your bag." Lilly called as I rushed to the elevator.
"Grab it." I told her as I hit the button "I swear to God guys Daddy does this stuff just to make me crazy." I told them all as I pressed the button "One, two, three and four, everybody in?" I asked and they all nodded. "Okey dokies"
It had been four years since I became Mrs. Edward Cullen and I have to say I loved every minute of it. From our wedding night to today I have never regretted my decision to take this direction with my life.
Sure Edward and I had our ups and downs.
He left the toilet seat up and I squeezed the toothpaste from the middle but was as far as it went.
Well no it had gotten more heated than that. We did have big blow outs, but the make-up sex was always pretty good. And okay when I told him I was pregnant again we may have freaked out a bit, but we rolled with the punches and the day I held Luke in my arms I knew our family was complete.
I was also assured because I made Edward go get a vasectomy but seriously I don't think I would be able to manage five. I was barely holding four of them.
"Mommy I have to go potty." Luke said as I put Lily down on the floor.
"Baby we will be up on Mommy's floor in a minute and you can go potty okay?" I told him but he had that worried look on his face that told me this was fairly urgent. "We are death con four aren't we?" I asked him and he nodded. "You hold on and you get to pick the movie tonight okay?" I asked him and straight away he wasn't thinking about needing to go potty anymore.
"Mommy can we go into Daddy's office when we get up here" Violet asked.
"That sounds like fun." I told them. "Ben is going to watch you because Daddy and I have a meeting today."
"About what?" Connor asked.
"Grown up stuff" I told them when the elevator opened on my floor. "Oh thank God." I said when I saw Edward leaning against Angela's desk, waiting for the doors to open.
"I just need to finish..." He began but I shook my head.
"You can do it during our meeting, take Munchkin here to the potty would you? I'll get them set up in your office." I told him and he nodded. He lifted Luke out of my arms and kissed me briefly.
"Busy day?" he asked.
"Never a dull moment in the Cullen house." I told him.
"Daddy" Luke whined.
"Right potty, Connor you coming?" he asked and Connor nodded. I walked the girls down to Edward's office and got them sat up.
As they sat and played together I had to smile.
They were so beautiful, I didn't know how I ever got this lucky but I was happy I did.
"Alright babies, Mommy will be back later." I told them as the boys came back into the room.
I waved and dragged Edward up to my office. Angela was helping Ben take care of the kids so our mouths were attached to one another's before we were even in the door.
"Oh thank God" Edward said as he pushed me against my office door and locked it.
"Alone at last." I said as he pulled down my skirt zipper and I his pant zipper.
"Jesus Christ you are so sexy, no way did you give birth to three babies." He said running his hands over my body.
"Believe me I did." I murmured as I caught his lips again. We made quick of our time knowing we did have to get actual work done aswell as this but if I didn't get a release now I was going to hit someone, and legally I couldn't hit the kids.
He swiftly entered and I moaned as he grasped my hips and guided me back and forth on his cock.
It didn't take long for both of us to come and I slumped against him as I came down from my high.
"We may have to start making this appointment a regular one Baby." Edward murmured and I smiled wrapping my arms around his neck.
"Hmm definitely" I said kissing him. "But now we have to get to work." I told him and he sighed. "I know but the sooner we get this done, the sooner we go home and the sooner we get the little munchkins tuckered out and in bed." I told him.
"More sex later?" he asked.
"Oh yeah, I start my period next week so we live it up this week remember?" I asked and he nodded. We quickly got dressed and started our work going through the company accounts and our joint projects. We talked about projections and goals of our company for a good hour before we wrapped it up.
"I feel productive" Edward said closing down his laptop.
"Me too" I said looking at my computer screen.
"So I was thinking" He said and I looked over at him. "How about we call it a day, rent a movie and get some pizza and ice cream and have a Cullen night in?" he asked.
"That sounds great. Although it's Luke's turn to pick a film."
"We'll get Connor to help him." Edward said and I nodded.
"You take the boys to the rental place. I'll take the girls and get the food. I say we keep it real and go full out wearing jammies."
"You've taken the words out of my mouth Mrs. Cullen." He said leaning in to kiss me. "I love you Baby." He said and I smiled cupping the sides of his face pulling him back into a kiss.
"I love you too." I told him.
As I watched him walk out of my office I smiled.
It just goes to show you that as bad a situation as your child going missing for twelve hours is, good things come to good people.
You gotta love mix ups.
"Daddy what movie are we getting?" Connor asked as we walked into the movie store. I had Luke up on my hip while Connor held my free hand.
"Whatever your brother picks" I told him as he sighed. "Within reason" I added quietly as we walked over to the kiddie's section of the movie store.
The past four years of my life have been a whirl wind of kids' movies, trips to the zoo, picnics and Santa lists but I wouldn't trade it for anything. My kids meant the world to me and I hoped that they would take what I showed them as a parent and do the same with their kids one day.
I watched as Luke and Connor scanned the movies, every so often Connor would pick up something and show it to his brother who shook his head. We were going to be awhile.
"Your boys are adorable" I heard a woman's voice say and I turned to face her. This was not the first time this had happened. Anytime I took the kids out by myself this happened, can I just say I am delighted to not be single anymore? Because the singles pool was pretty shallow in Chicago from what I could see.
The woman was wearing too tight a top, and too short a skirt, so I had to fight from rolling my eyes.
"Thanks, my wife and I think so." I told her and her pouty lips turned into a grimace. Not once had i ever been tempted to cheat on my wife and no way was this harpy going to cause me to break the pattern.
"Oh that's nice. I have a little girl around their age."
"Fascinating." I said when Connor turned to face me. "You okay Champ?" I asked him.
"We're never getting home are we?" he asked as Luke held two films in his hands looking rather indecisive.
"Pretty soon" I said picking him. "Come on Kiddo, Mommy and the girls will be waiting."
"So you're happily married?" the woman asked.
"Yes" I said
"Okay. Shrek." Luke said.
"Yes" Connor said punching the air as I put him down on the ground. He went and high fived his brother.
"So a play date?" the woman asked.
"No thanks, I better get going." I told her quickly renting our movie and heading out of the store.
"Daddy that ladies skirt was too small for her." Connor said as we left and I was sure she heard.
"And her hair was funny." Luke added.
"Come on guys" I said trying to keep from laughing.
I loaded them into the car and drove home. I smiled when I saw Bella's car in the drive way. I went in to find her sitting on the couch brushing Violet's hair.
"And the winner is?" She asked.
"Shrek" I told her.
"That I can handle. Boys go upstairs and put your jammies on; they are on your beds. Pizza is staying warm in the oven." She said.
"I'll go up and supervise." I told her and she nodded as she began to put two French braids in Violet's hair. Because the girls both had such beautiful long hair Bella brushed it out and tied it back every night to save us from tangly messes the next day.
Once the boys and I were changed we went downstairs to find Bella with Lily on her lap, while Violet sprawled out of one of the bean bags we had the floor for the kids.
"Baby will grab the food out while I finish Lilybug's hair? The movie is in the player." Bella asked and I nodded and went into the kitchen. Connor followed me and helped me out. I was really proud of the little guy he took his roll of big brother very serious and made sure to always help me out.
He helped me carry in the pizza and juice boxes before sitting down on his bean bag in between his sisters.
"Dig in guys" I said as I sat down beside Bella. "Where's Luke?" I asked.
"Potty" Bella said putting some pizza on a napkin for him so it would cool down. When he emerged a couple of minutes later he was smiling widely. "Did you flush?" Bella asked and he nodded. "Wash your hands?" she asked and he nodded "Good boy." She said holding her arms out to him.
Bella and I had this thing that until they were four the kids had to sit beside us. I don't know why we started it but I suppose it had something to do with it being easier to get the younger ones asleep if they snuggled up with us.
"Come here Lukey" Bella said pulling him up beside her and handed him some pizza.
"We ready?" I asked and they all nodded so I pressed play.
As I sat there with my family and watch the green ogre I smile.
Connor and Lily smiled at the film as I watched them. I will always have to thank my eldest daughter and son for the way my life turned out.
And while our family didn't start in the most conventional way, it was perfect now and I wouldn't change it in the world.
Bella and I never once looked back on Jacob or James, or even Victoria. We had each other and that's all that married.
It started with a mix up, and I was thankful for that because Bella and I had needed to mix it up a little. As the movie went on Luke head dropped to Bella's lap and she cuddled into my side.
You gotta love a happy ending.
Wow I can't believe this is over. What a great story this has been. When this started it was a crazy idea rolling around in my head, I never expected it to get this sort of response. I loved getting to you all through your reviews. You have all made writing this story so much more fun than I ever thought possible.
I have a view shout outs to do though just because these people have kept me going in this story. Geddy for making the banner when we first began, Katluva0323 I enjoy reading your reviews your honesty is rather humbling to me as a writer, I know I have a few more regurlar in there too who I should mention but I can't find your usernames right now and I don't want to get them wrong, you know who you all are and I think you are awesome people.
I don't really know what's next for me, I've been scribbling away with a few different ideas. Just making one work at this stage is what I'll be focusing on for a little while.
Once again thank you all for your support.
Love The Irish Cullen.
