Chapter 17

“Mommy.”

“What baby?”

“Daddy has a girlfriend.” She smiled, playing with Ellie’s toes.

“He does huh?” I smiled.

“Yea, her name is Cammie.”

“Have you met her?”

“No, daddy just told me about her.”

“You okay with him having a girlfriend?”

“Yea, he said he will still spend time with me.”

“Good, mommy will have to talk to daddy about this.” She nodded and went to play with her toys. Ellie was asleep and Colin was at work so I decided to call Rickey and ask him about this. I sat down next to Ellie while I waited for him to answer.

“Hello.”

“So the word is you have a girlfriend?” I smiled.

“I do, and she would like to meet Soph.”

“Do I know her?”

“I don’t think so.”

“So, in that case, I need to meet her before she meets our daughter.”

“Do you want to double date then?”

“Yea we can do that. Are you guys free tonight?”

“Yea.”

“Okay, you guys can pick the place and I will find a baby sitter.”

“See you later.” I hung up and texted Sean seeing if she was free tonight.

“Baby girl looks like you and sissy will be going to Nana’s and Poppa’s tonight.”

“Why?”

“Mommy and Colin are going out with daddy and Cammie.”

“I want to go.” She pouted.

“You can next time.” She frowned and went back to playing while I texted Colin telling him what’s going on. Ellie had woken up so I quickly got her ready before I got ready. Once we were all ready we headed over to my moms.

“Poppa.” She yelled running through the door.

“Hey pumpkin, ready to watch the game with me?”

“Then we watch my show.”

“We’ll see.”

“Dad.” He smiled at me and took the car seat from me.

“Look at you getting bigger every time I see you.”

“I know I can’t believe it.” I smiled as I got Ellie out and she smiled at me.

“Hi, baby.”

We walked into the living room sitting down.

“Where’s mom?”

“Don’t know. We’re going to go downstairs, the games going to start.” I nodded as they went downstairs so I curled up with Ellie.

“There’s my girl.” My mom came down and smiled as she came over to us.

“Hi, cutie.” She made her baby sounds at my mom making us smile.

“So what’s going on tonight?”

“Double dating with Rickey and his girlfriend.”

“What?”

“Yea, Sophia said she’s nice. He talked about her to see how Sophia would be and she wants to meet her. I don’t know her, so of course, I want to meet her before my daughter does.”

“Of course, I’m glad he found someone.”

“Me too, I want him to settle down. He needs someone to take care of him for once.”

“Think you will like her?”

“Hope so, or he sure as hell will not be bringing our daughter around her.” Colin came into the room. I smiled at him as he sat next to me and took Ellie.

“So what’s going on?”

“We’re meeting Rickey’s girlfriend.”

“Is Soph?”

“No, we need to get going.”

We said our goodbyes and headed towards the restaurant.

“Do not scare the poor girl off and become a super overprotective mom.”

“I won’t.”

“McKenna.” He warned.

“What, she’s my daughter.”

“Everything is going to be fine.” I nodded as we pulled up and went inside where they were. I could tell she looked nervous to meet me.

“Hi.” I smiled.

“Cammie, this is McKenna and Colin.”

“Hi.” She said shyly.

“Hi, it’s nice to meet you.”

“I guess you were right, she does look like her mom.” She smiled looking between me and Rickey.

“She is my twin, it drives my brother insane.” I smiled.

“She is so cute. I hope I get to meet her.”

“So how did you two meet?” I asked looking at them closely.

“We met at a bar. She came up to me thinking I was hot then the rest was history.”

“I thought you were good looking and I just wanted to dance. Anyways, Rickey said you were guys were getting married congratulations!”

“Yes, thank you. We still really haven’t figured out too much for the wedding.”

“We’re waiting for Ellie to be a little older.”

“Where are the girls?”

“Their at my mom’s. Sophia is watching the game with my dad. He claims that she is his good luck charm.”

“Well, they usually win when they are together.”

“I guess, he loves watching his old games with her too. I’m surprised she does not want to play baseball yet.”

“Who is your dad?”

“Nathan Morris, he used to play in the MLB when I was a baby. He stopped when my mom was pregnant with my little brother.”

“Did you ever get to watch him?”

“Yea, but I was a baby so I don’t remember anything.”

“Still that is so cool.”

“Yea my dad is pretty cool. My little brother is going to be just like him.”

“I bet your dad loves that.”

“Oh, yea. So do you have any nieces or nephews?”

“Sadly no I don’t.

Dinner was over and it went well.

“Rickey, can I talk to you real quick?” He nodded and we went over by the car.

“What’s up?”

“She seems nice.”

“So Sophia can meet her?”

“Yes, but listen Sophia is the boss in this. If she doesn’t like her then someone is going to have to end it.”

“I understand.”

“I’m happy for you, she seems good for you.”

“Thank you, you should be getting to the girls. Is Sophia free tomorrow?”

“Yes in the morning, but then she has swim class. I can meet you there if you want?”

“Yeah sounds good.”

(Rickey’s pov)

I pulled her into my arms and she quickly cuddled into me.

“Tonight went good.”

“Yea, speaking of, McKenna said she likes you, so you get to meet Sophia.”

“Really!?” She smiled.

“Yea, she is coming over tomorrow.”

“I’m so excited.”

“We get her for a little bit, and then she has to swim class.”

“Babe, I’m so excited.”

“Are you sure that it doesn’t bother you I have a kid?”

“It did at first. I would have rather you told me than find a picture of her.”

“I was going to tell you, I wanted to make sure we were serious. Telling someone you have a kid is hard, usually, they will run, but some will stay.” I sighed as she ran her fingers through my hair.

“True, you needed to be sure about us.”

“Exactly.”

“Let’s get some sleep. She is going to drain our energy tomorrow.” She smiled, leaning up kissing my lips before we fell asleep.

“There’s mommy.” We walked over and I helped her get Ellie.

“I got your stuff. Will you take her while I help Soph get ready?” She looked up at me.

“Sure.” I took the car seat and brought her inside the seating area. Ellie looked like she was going to cry so I pulled her out and cradled her.

“Hi Ellie, mommy will be back in a minute.” I smiled at her and she closed her eyes falling asleep.

“Sorry about that, is she asleep?”

“Yea.”

“I can take her.”

“We’re good. I can’t believe Sophia was this small at one point.”

“I know I miss it. They grow up so fast. Maybe you should have another one.” I shook my head, looking Ellie over.

“I don’t know. I think Soph is it for me at least for a while.”

“How did today go?”

“It went good. They ganged up on me to go see that Minion’s movie.”

“Soph okay?”

“Yea they seemed to get along pretty good.”

“Good I’m glad.”

“Me too.” I smiled at her and looked out to see my little girl learning to swim.
