18 months later
I heard a cry out of the baby monitor and got up slowly and walked to Brandon and Brielle’s room. I walked in and saw Brielle was crying, I walked over to her and picked her up before she woke her brother up.
I changed her diaper and walked downstairs and heated up a bottle. I fed her and walked upstairs and put Brielle in her crib since she was now asleep. I just backed away from Brielle when Brandon started crying, I picked him up and did the same to him and then put him back in his crib when he was sleeping.
They’re so cute, Brandon has my eyes while Brielle has Damon’s.
I walked back to my room and crawl back into bed and fell back to sleep.
I woke up to crying again and grabbed my phone to see what the time was, 8:29. I got up and walked into their room and Brandon and Brielle were both sitting up crying. I carried them both downstairs until I got to their bouncer seats and I put them in and made them a bottle each and then feed them at the same time.
I ran my finger over the birthmark they both have. It’s on their right hand and it’s a love heart.
According to werewolf books my brother has telling us all about how a mother can protect her baby/babies if she’s strong enough to do it in spirit, so she doesn’t always have to watch over them as they get older.
It doesn’t say how it protects them but if I feel or if they feel threatened it will protect them from anyone they don’t know. It’s a love heart and I think it’s cute.
I turned the tv and turned on Hi 5, they hate the wiggles but hi 5 they love.
I walked into the kitchen and put milk, plain yoghurt and 2 bananas into the blender. After about a minute it was done and I put it into 3 different bowls. I put strawberries in mine and feed Brandon, Brielle and I all at the same time. I got them changed and put them back into their cribs and went into my bathroom and had a shower.
I got out of the shower and wrapped my head and body in a towel each. I walked into my wardrobe and grabbed a light grey blouse, black pencil skirt and a dark grey belt with nude coloured heels.
I got changed and walked into the bathroom and dried my hair and then straightened it. I put eyeliner, mascara and lip gloss on. I walked into my wardrobe and grabbed my black winter coat and black leather gloves.
I grabbed my laptop bag and put my phone, notebook and laptop inside. I put my laptop bag on my shoulder and I walked out of my bedroom. I walked into Brandon and Brielle’s room and put them in their car seats and walked out to my car and put them both inside and grabbed my laptop bag off the porch and jumped into the car.
After a 15-minute drive, I was at the day care centre. Some werewolves work here so I know they are both safe. Annie walked out and grabbed Brandon for me while I grabbed Brielle. I gave her a side hug.
“Hey Annie, how ya doing?” I asked.
“I’m super tired, Carey didn’t sleep at all last night but apart from that I’m good, how are you?” She asked. Carey is her nine-month-old daughter.
“My brother isn’t helping you?” I asked and she shook her head.
“He sleeps right through her crying; he has with all of them”
“I wouldn’t tolerate that” I said as we walked inside.
“What am I going to do then?” She asked.
“Knee him in the balls, see how well he sleeps through that” I said and she laughed.
“I can’t do that to my mate” she said.
“Why not? I did it to Jeremy” I said and she gasped.
“Really?” She asked with big eyes.
“Mum wanted him awake for school, if he was ever late, I used to get into trouble from our mum and dad because he was late, so one morning I kicked him, he always woke up quickly after that” I said and she laughed. I signed them into day care.
“Do you want me to take them when I leave here?” Annie asked, she works here. Jeremy let her work here since the kids are here and she wanted a job.
“I’m supposed to finish work at 5 o’clock but it changes every day depending on how much work I get today. I’ll call, I should know at around 4 o’clock if I’m going to be there late or not” I said and she nodded.
I walked out to my car and drove to work. I’m a photographer/reporter for ’The Advertiser”, it’s the Adelaide newspaper. Some of the people there are werewolves, like Asher Bennet, he’s the editor.
I grabbed my laptop bag and walked inside. I went straight to my desk and opened my laptop, I turned it on and went and got some coffee from the break room.
I went back to my desk and continued writing my story.
It was now 4 o’clock and there’s no way I’m leaving yet. I called Annie and told her I wasn’t going to be able to pick the kids up and went back to my story, I’ve finished 2 stories and now I’m on my third one. I have to get 4 stories done with pictures and hand them into my editor before leaving.
It was now 7 o’clock and I was finally done. I cleaned up my desk a bit and put my notebook, laptop, phone and earphones into my laptop bag and turned off my desk lamp. I walked out of the building and it felt like someone was staring at me and I looked around but saw no one.
I got into my car and drove to Jeremy’s house and got out. I walked inside and saw all the kids asleep watching sponge bob. I walked over to Brandon and Brielle and they were asleep in their car seats. I saw Annie asleep too and I walked over to her and likely shook her awake.
“Hey, I’m taking Brandon and Brielle home” I said and she nodded.
“Okay” she said and went back to sleep and I chuckled. I grabbed Brandon and Brielle and drove. I walked up to my room with them still in their cars seats. I got them changed into singlets, diaper and cute little sweatpants. I put them under my blanket and I got changed into pyjamas. I laid down and put a pillow between them and me before putting my arm over the pillow and my children.
I looked at them and they were asleep and they looked adorable. It wasn’t long until I was asleep too.
“Alpha, we found her” my beta said.
“Where is she?” I asked.
“A small pack in Adelaide, so small that we looked over it before but I had another look at it since the last person to look at these files were Harry” he said and I nodded.
“Well. It looks like we’re going to Adelaide. Have everyone ready to go and drive to Adelaide in an hour, I want my own car through, I want to drive by myself” I said and he nodded.
“Yes alpha” he said and walked out.
Here I come Naomi.
