"How's Life, Rachel?" Chapter 6: Butterflies

Sorry guys this is such a late update. I have been crazy with school, I did some traveling, then the Cory tribute episode happened and just fell apart. It was a beautiful episode and well written. But sadly it took awhile to be able to pull myself together. Right now I'm doing better so that's why I've been able to get this next chapter down. Btw,3 weeks have passed since attack. *Disclaimer I Do Not Own Glee*

It was 5am on a Saturday, and Rachel couldn't stay asleep. The first week after the attack was hard and had nightmares, but they went away by the second week. Right now her sleeping problems were caused by the twins. She was always tired and had back aches. The doctor told her she was going to be uncomfortable but she didn't think it was going to be as bad as it is.

With Rachel moving so much she ended up waking up Finn.

"Rachel, are you okay?" Finn asked seeing Rachel uncomfortable with sleep in his voice.

"I'm so uncomfortable," Rachel pouted.

"I can see," he said with a smile.

"Finn it's not something to smile about. My back aches so bad and I'm so tired," she said sitting up.

"I know, but it is going to worth all this pain when the twins are here," Finn said.

"I know I was want them to be here already. I hate all the waiting," she said with her hand on her stomach.

"I completely agree with you, but we're going to have to wait", Finn said pulling Rachel close to hold him in his arms and gave her a kiss in the head, "Try to get some sleep" he said to a now sleeping Rachel.


It was now 8am, Rachel luckily got some sleep in Finn's arms but was taken by her phone going off. When she sat up to check her phone, she did notice that Finn was missing from their bed. She figured he was somewhere in the apartment, so she checked her phone before looking for him.

When she looked at her phone, she saw two text messages: one from Santana and one from her mom. Both of the messages were asking if Finn and she could watch their kid. She thought that it would be some fun to spend time with her nephew and little sister. So she got out of bed to find Finn to see if he was fine fir doing so babysitting.

She found him in the kitchen making breakfast. "Hey, beautiful," he said.

"Hey, Finn would it be fine if we watched Beth and Lucas today?" She asked.

"Yeah, that's fine. I don't have plans for us today. Also it will be fun to get some practice before our kids come," he replied.

"I was thinking the same thing", she said smiling.

"Great minds think alike," he replied smiling.

"Yes they do. Okay, I'm going to text then back. The kids should be here in hour or so. I think," she said heading to their room for her phone.

Once she texted Shelby and Santana back, she got changed to be prepared for the kids arrive.

The first kid dropped off was Lucas, "Thanks, guys for doing this so last minute. Brittany needs help at the studio and Jake has class. So I have to get down there," Santana said giving Lucas and his stuff to Rachel.

"No problem, Santana. We leave so close for a reason. Also it will give us some practice," Finn said smiling at Rachel holding Lucas.

"Okay, thanks again. Mommy loves you Lucas. Bye guys," Santana said blowing Lucas a kiss and was gone.

Once Santana left Lucas started to cry.

"Oh no! What did I do?" Rachel said rocking Lucas for him to stop crying.

"He's just upset because his mom left. Let me see him," Finn said taking Lucas from Rachel.

"Calm down, little guy. Everything is okay," he said rocking Lucas. Lucas quickly stopped crying and calmed down.

"What was that, then?" Rachel asked.

"What are you talking about?" Finn asked confused.

"You just hold him and he stopped. Kids must hate me. Oh my God, our kids are going to hate me," Rachel said falling on the couch.

"Rachel, stop! Lucas doesn't hate you and our kids are definitely not going to hate you. They're going to love you. Okay?" He said.

"Okay, if you say so."

"I do so. Right Lucas?" he asked the infant who busted smiled.


Finn and Rachel were on the carpet playing with Lucas when they heard a knocking at the door. Rachel went to answer it. At the door was Shelby with Beth.

"Hey Rachel, thanks for doing this for me," she said.

"No problem. I enjoy spending time with my amazing little sister and so does Finn," Rachel said smiling.

"Okay, I have to go. Bye," she said giving Beth a hug.

"Bye, mom," Beth said and headed to the living room.

"Hi, Finn and Lucas," Beth said sitting on the carpet next to them.

"Hey,, Beth. How are you? How's school?" Finn asked the seven year old.

"I'm good. I really like second grade. I have a lot of friends and a very nice teacher. But sometimes I wish you could be my teacher though," Beth replied.

"Aww thanks, Beth. I wish I could be your teacher. Maybe when you hit high school and I'm still teaching. You could definitely help me out with Glee Club," he said giving her a smile.

"That would be amazing!" Beth said smiling and giving Finn a hug, "You're the best brother ever."

"You're a pretty cool little sister as well," Finn said with a grin.

Rachel then walked into the room, "Beth, are you excited to be an aunt?" she asked.

"Ah, duh. I can't wait for the babies to be here. They are going to be so cute," she squealed in excitement.

"You are going to be one awesome aunt," Rachel said smiling at Beth's excitement.

"Thanks, Rachel. Can I play with Lucas, Finn?" She asked.

"Sure you can," he replied.

"Hey Lucas," Beth said playing with the infant.

Finn and Rachel got off the carpet to sit on the couch in front of the carpet.

"She is really good with him," Rachel said watching Beth with Lucas.

"She is. She is going to be a great aunt," Finn said.

"Hey, Finn would you do something for me?" Rachel asked.

"I would do anything for you. What is that you want?" he replied.

"Can you run and get me some ice cream and pickles. The babies are really craving some right now," she said placing her hands on her stomach.

"Sure. I will be right back," he said grabbing his keys and headed to the store.


When Finn came home, he found Rachel, with a sleeping Beth next to her, eating Funny Girl.

"I guess you guys did all the partying without me. Where's Lucas?" Finn asked.

"Oh, we did," Rachel replied with a smirk, "Lucas is in the spare room sleeping."

"Wow! Look at you go and you said kids hate you," he replied smiling, "I won't make you move and wake Beth up, so I'll just some ice cream in a bowl and bring you pickles to you,"

"Thanks, Finn," She said giving him a quick kiss then looked back at the TV.

Finn headed to the kitchen to prepare the food for Rachel. When he was finished and walked back into the living room, he found a now sleeping Rachel with Beth. Finn just smiled and put a blanket over the two of the them.


When Rachel woke up, she noticed that Beth was missing from her side," Beth? Beth!" she shouted not knowing where her sister was.

"We're in the kitchen, Rachel," she heard Finn shout from the kitchen.

When Rachel got to the kitchen, she found Beth eating ice cream and Finn feeding Lucas.

"You guys are eating without me?" Rachel asked pouting.

"You were asleep, Sleeping Beauty. You want some?" Finn asked.

"Yes," Rachel said sitting next to Beth.

"Here hold Lucas then," he said passing Lucas to Rachel.

"Hey little man," Rachel said to the infant with a smile.

"Rachel, can we finish Funny Girl? I feel asleep and I really want to finish it," Beth asked.

"Sure. After you finish your ice cream when can finish it," Rachel replied.


"You can so tell that you guys are related," Finn said with a smirk on his face.


Rachel with Beth and Finn with Lucas were on the couch finishing up Funny Girl, when they heard a knock on the door.

"I'll get it," Finn said going to answer to door with Lucas in his arms

"Lucas!" Santana said happy to see her son when Finn opened the door," Did you miss mommy?"

The infant just smiled and start to reach for her to take him, "Oh I missed you baby boy."

"Hey, Santana," Beth said running to the door.

"Hey, Beth," Santana said," Thanks guys for watching Lucas again. It looks like he had some fun.

"He did," Beth said smiling.

"I bet he did. Bye guys," Santana said leaving.

"Bye," Rachel said waving goodbye from the couch.

It wasn't long until Shelby came to pick up Beth.

"Hey, Beth. Did you have fun?" Shelby asked.

"Yeah! I played with Lucas, eat ice cream, and watched Funny Girl," she said excitedly.

"Wow, that sounds like fun. Thanks guys again," she said.

"No problem," Rachel said.

"Bye, guys," Finn said and Shelby and Beth were gone.

"I think we're ready for kids," Rachel said smiling.

"Me too. Come on babies, come quicker," Finn said leaning down and putting his hands on Rachel's stomach.

"Wooo," Rachel said putting her hands over Finn's.

"What? What's wrong?" Finn said jumping up.

"I think the babies are moving.", Rachel said with a big smile on her face.

"What! I want to feel!" Finn said trying to feel the babies.

"Finn, you can't yet. It's too soon for you," Rachel said.

"Aww," Finn pouted, "What does it feel like?" he asked.

"It feels like butterflies," she said," It's amazing."

"Oh just keep rubbing it in. I'm so jealous right now," he said.

"Soon enough you will feel them, okay"

"Okay," he said leaning back to Rachel's stomach," Daddy is upset that he can't feel you guys yet, but love guys more than anything."

"And they love you, too," Rachel smiled and shared a passionate kiss with her husband.
