Chapter 1: The Itsy Bitsy Spider
(Emilie P. O. V)
"Momma!" two voices chimed in unison as a small, chubby hand patted against my cheek. "Time to wake up, Momma!"
I groaned and pulled the blanket over my head. "Five more minutes," I grumbled.
"Momma!" the small and adorable sounding female voice chastised.
"Father said you have to wake up now," the equally small and adorable male voice said calmly, reminding me of his father.
I groaned and peaked out from under the blanket at my two adorable two year olds: Selena and Emmett. Selena's long locks that reached just past her shoulders were the same color of black as her father's, while Emmett's short and slightly spiking hair was the same dark coffee brown color as mine. Both of them contained their father's brownish red eyes that were outlined by long, black lashes. Selena was dressed in a short sleeve dark purple dress that reached her knees to reveal her white stockings and black Mary-Janes. The top of her sleeves were slightly puffy, giving the dress a more girly appearance, as if the white lace around the hem of the skirt and sleeves wasn't enough. There was a white Alice Bow on her head and her long bangs, that she refused to cut, hung slightly in her eyes to complete her adorable look. Emmett was dressed just as properly as his sister. He had on a long sleeve white oxford with a navy blue vest over it. Navy blue shorts matched his vest and he had knee high black socks with brown penny loafers. A black tie and his scruffy hair finished his handsome look.
All in all, my children were perfect and adorable.
I sighed and pushed the warm blanket off of me. "Fine," I told the twins. "I'll be there in a minute."
Selena and Emmett both smiled, revealing their dimples they had inherited from me. They both kissed either one of my cheeks before leaving the room and letting me get dressed.
I chuckled. "Time to start another day," I murmured and glanced out my bedroom window that revealed the golden morning sun outside.

"Daddy, we did it!" Selena chimed happily before jumping into my arms and wrapping hers tightly around my neck. She snuggled close to me and stared down at her brother as he approached. Emmett looked up at us and grabbed my hand that was not wrapped around his sister.
"Good job," I praised.
"Can we have chocolate cake with extra strawberries now?" Emmett asked enthusiastically.
"Yeah, yeah!" Selena chimed. "We woke Momma up, so can we get sweets later?"
I smiled as I walked through the halls with both my children. "Of course." Inheriting their mother's sweet tooth, I should have known it would turn out like that.
"Yay!" the twins exclaimed cheerfully.
"But first, you must both practice your instruments," I pointed out. "For an hour."
"Aw~," they both sighed.
"Do we have to?" Emmett asked.
"Yeah. We did so yesterday, can we have a break today, Daddy?" Selena inquired.
I shook my head. "It is best to practice everyday."
They both sighed. "Okay," they said in unison.
"Sheesh, Sebastian. They're only two and you're already taking away their fun," the melodic voice of my goddess joked behind me.
"It is better for them to learn early," I said with a smirk as I glanced over at Emilie.
Her long, straight, dark brown locks reached just above the back of her knees and was let loose. It looked a bit untamed, but that just made her look lovelier. Her golden eyes were surrounded by long lashes and admired me with amusement as her soft, pink lips smiled sweetly. Unlike our children who dressed so formally, Emilie merely wore a black tank top, dark skinny jeans, and black combat boots.
She was so lovely, and I would never let any other man have her. She was mine, and I was hers.
"Momma!" both our children spoke and Emmett ran over and grabbed Emilie's hand, while Selena remained in my arms.
"Still," Emilie said and picked Emmett up into her arms. "Let them have a break once and a while."
"I did give them one before," I pointed out as the four of us walked through the mansion halls.
"That was three months ago," she said with a pout and grabbed my free hand in hers. "They need more than that, Sebastian."
"Fine. They do not have to practice today," I gave in. "But tomorrow they must."
"How about we make it that every Saturday and Sunday they don't have to play? That's better than one day off every few months."
"I suppose," I said, giving in to Emilie's request.
She giggled, the sound beautiful.
(Emilie P. O. V)
With Selena and Emmett playing out in the garden outside with their uncles, I was forced to learn. I groaned and rested my head on the library's table that stood before the large windows overlooking the garden. I glanced out the windows and saw the twins being carried on Jonathan and Romeo's shoulders while Ciel walked a bit behind them. Selena was being carried by Romeo, and Jonathan was carrying Emmett.
I sighed. "I want to go play too," I mumbled.
"If you can memorize at least one Latin poem, I will let you," Sebastian said as he placed a book on the table in front of me. It was already opened to a certain page that had a poem on it.
I looked up at Sebastian and pouted. "But it's Saturday."
"I said the children would be free on the weekend, not you my dear."
"Hmm. You're such a strict teacher," I grumbled and glanced out the window again at my family playing outside. Since I was looking outside, I didn't notice Sebastian lean down towards my face to kiss me.
His lips brushed against mine before pressing against them and kissing me passionately. Sebastian's arms wrapped around me, pulling me tightly to his chest as my hands gripped the front of his shirt tightly. The kiss suddenly turned urgent and rough, and I had to pull away after a while because I was breathless.
When I glanced up at Sebastian, I noticed he was glaring at something. I followed his gaze and stared at the thing on the windowsill. I shrieked and jumped out of my seat to get away from the spider. I hate those things! They're super creepy, especially the way they walk and how they come down from ceilings. I cringe just thinking about it.
"Kill it, kill it!" I said as I hid behind Sebastian. This was not a small spider either. It was big, and staring at us. It was so creepy.
"Gladly," Sebastian said and squished the thing with a near by book that I will now never touch for the rest of eternity.
"I hate spiders," I said and looked around, making sure there were no others. Where there's one, there are more. Ugh! Now I'm going to be paranoid about that for a while.
Sebastian walked back over to me and cupped the side of my face in his hand. I stared up at him and noticed his eyes took on a worried look.
"What's wrong?" I asked.
He shook his head and dropped his hand. "It is nothing." Sebastian glanced at the table. "On second thought, perhaps you should take the day off."
"Huh? Really?" I asked happily.
Sebastian nodded, that look still in his eyes. It made my happy mood go away, and now I was worried like him. What's on Sebastian's mind?
"Sebastian," I murmured.
He shook his head and closed the book with the Latin poem in it. "I am fine, I assure you. Go play with the children."
" . . . Okay," I said softly. I'll try to get the answer from him later.

"The baby," I whispered and pointed at the home. "Get the baby and bring it to me, understand. Make sure you are not seen."
"Yes, of course."
"Oh, and wipe that distracted look off your face! You should be thinking of one thing and one thing only, which is grabbing the child, understand?! This is very important!"
"Good. Now go. I want to return quickly. I already have everything set up. I can't wait!" I smiled and clapped my hands as I thought about the nursery I had designed just for this moment. "Once we have the baby, things will almost be complete."
(Emilie P. O. V)
Selena yawned in my arms adorably as I cradled her to my chest and sat in the garden. Emmett was still playing with Jonathan and Romeo, and Ciel sat beside me. He and I both stared up at the afternoon sky as Selena grew closer and closer to sleep.
"Ciel," I murmured.
"Yes?" he asked and looked down at me.
I looked at him too, our eyes meeting. "Sebastian is acting strangely, do you know why?"
"Strangely? How so?"
"He just . . . Earlier today he got this look in his eyes. It was worry, but I don't know why."
Ciel shrugged. "Perhaps you are just imagining things. Sebastian seems fine to me."
"Maybe," I whispered, but I still felt a bit unsure.
I stared down at Selena, her eyes now closed and her face peaceful as she slept. I smiled and held her closer to me.
"You fill the mother role well," Ciel complimented. "You fell into it easily."
"Well, I was an older sibling," I said. "I always watched over Marcus when our mom had to go to work and didn't have a babysitter, so I sort of had to fill the mother role a bit for that."
I continued to stare down at Selena as something leaned against my arm. I stared over at Ciel in shock, but then I smiled and wrapped my arm around his shoulder, pulling him to my side.
"You are still the same," he whispered.
"You are thinking back to when I was Valerie?" I asked.
He nodded. "And you are the same. That motherly aura, you had it as Valerie as well. You always treated me like I was your own son." Ciel closed his eyes. "You were like a second mother to me."
"Ciel," I whispered in shock.
Ciel smirked, his eyes still closed. "Do not get used to me acting this way," he said and glanced up at me with that mischievous look in his cerulean eye. "It will not happen often."
I chuckled. "I had a feeling it wouldn't."
"Momma, Momma!" Emmett chimed and ran over to me.
"Ah! Emmett, I don't think that's a good idea!" Romeo called after my son as he approached me, carrying something in his hands.
"What's not a good idea?" I asked completely clueless as Emmett now stood before me.
My son smiled the cutest smile in the world before nonchalantly lifting up his hands to reveal what he was holding. I shrieked and jumped up from the bench I was sitting on. I still cradled the sleeping Selena in my arms, and I took about five steps away from my son.
"What's wrong, Momma?" Emmett asked innocently as the large spider in his hands blinked its many eyes at me. I didn't even know spiders could blink!
"E-Emmett, put the s-spider down," I stuttered.
"Aw~. But I wanted to keep it," he said with a pout that resembled mine a bit.
I shook my head quickly. "No. No spiders! You can have anything else, but not a spider!"
Ciel glanced emotionlessly at the spider, but then his eye suddenly went wide and he jumped to his feet. He snatched the spider away from Emmett and turned away so my son wouldn't see him kill it.
"What?" Emmett asked Ciel. "Why did you snatch it out of my hands?" he whined.
"It . . . It was poisonous," Ciel said and turned back to Emmett as he wiped his hands with a white handkerchief.
"It was?" I asked while Emmett smiled and said, "Cool."
I walked over to Emmett and placed my hand on his shoulder. I didn't want to touch his hands until he washed them since they had touched that spider.
"Come on. It's time to go inside anyways," I said.
Emmett nodded. "Okay."
I glanced over at Ciel and saw his eyes were far away in thought. He looked angry and confused.
"Ciel?" I asked. "Something up?"
He shook his head. "Nothing. Let us go inside," the small demon said and walked past me.
"Okay. Come on, Emmett."
Emmett nodded and as we walked to the house he asked, "Momma, can I have a pet python?"
Sorry for the short first chapter, but hey, I'm back everyone! And so is the Bitter Sweet Eyes crew. How do you guys like two year old Selena and Emmett? Adorable, huh?
