Family Dinner


Stephanie's POV

"Aww, c'mon, guys. My mom specifically asked for all of you to come to dinner with me tonight!"

Tank, Lester, Bobby, Hal, and Cal all looked at me first and then at Ranger, who had come up behind me and wrapped his arms around me.

"It's our first anniversary. By eloping last year, we deprived her of a wedding. So just go with it," Ranger ordered.

There were sighs all around as I looked over my shoulder at Ranger and smiled softly. "Thanks, Batman."

His hand moved protectively down to the growing roundness of my belly. "Always, Babe. How are my girls tonight?"

"They're just fine. Maria and Elena have been calm most of the day, but Sophia's been restless the last few hours. I think the others are crowding her, because she won't stop moving. Made my nap this afternoon rather difficult."

He chuckled. "She'll be our flyer and take after her momma."

I sighed and nodded. "That's what I'm afraid of," I admitted.

Lester looked over at us and grinned. "Aww, Beautiful, no need to be afraid. Well, maybe a little. Now, if we're going to dinner, let's go." He smirked. "Dinner at your parents'? Everyone better fasten your seat belts... It's going to be a bumpy night!"
