Chapter 37

Jennifer sat in the living room thinking about everything. She heard the front door open and close and she looked up and saw him standing there.

“Hey,” Jennifer said.

“Hey,” Ethan said.

“Have a seat,” Jennifer said. She patted the couch beside her. He came and sat down.

“Jen,” Ethan said.

“I know you are sorry for everything, I’m sorry too,” Jennifer said.

“You have nothing to be sorry for, you didn’t do anything wrong, I handled this all wrong and I will do anything to make it up to you,” Ethan said.

“For starters, go get your stuff and get it back in the bedroom where it belongs,” Jennifer said.

“You mean?” Ethan said.

“It’s time to come home,” Jennifer said.

“Jen, you forgive me?” Ethan asked.

“You have a lot to make up for, it’s going to take some time to get back to where we were, but I want you to promise me that you will never leave me like that ever again, you have to promise me that we will talk and be honest with each other, no more secrets or anything,” Jennifer said.

“I promise, baby, I just want to come home and hold you in my arms and never let go,” Ethan said.

“Go get your stuff,” Jennifer said. He cupped her face in his hands and kissed her softly.

“I love you so much,” Ethan said.

“I love you too,” Jennifer said.

“My stuff is in the car, when you called, I packed my stuff into the car in case,” Ethan said.

“Go get it,” Jennifer said. He kissed her and went out to his car. Matthew and Callie came in from the kitchen.

“Well?” Callie asked.

“He’s getting his things,” Jennifer said.

“Callie and I can move out,” Matthew said.

“You don’t have to,” Jennifer said.

“You guys are having a baby, starting a family, you deserve to be alone here,” Callie said.

“Guys, seriously it’s fine,” Jennifer said. Ethan came in with his bags and saw them.

“What’s up?” Ethan asked.

“They said they were going to move out so we would have the house to ourselves,” Jennifer said.

“Guys, you don’t have to move out, this house is big enough to fit two families in here,” Ethan said.

“We just thought you guys would want the space,” Matthew said.

“It’s your choice, but you don’t have to go, we got used to you guys being here,” Ethan said.

“You sure?” Callie asked.

“We are sure, I like having you guys here,” Jennifer said.

“Okay but if it becomes too much, let us know and we can find a place,” Matthew said.

“You guys are talking like a forever couple,” Jennifer said.

“I think it could be,” Callie said.

“I think so too,” Matthew said.

“Say the words yet?” Jennifer asked.

“Yes we did,” Matthew said.

“I’m in love with him,” Callie said.

“I’m in love with her,” Matthew said.

“Okay,” Jennifer said. Ethan took his stuff upstairs to the bedroom and began unpacking and putting it away. Jennifer came in and sat down on the bed and watched him.

“When’s your next appointment?” Ethan asked.

“Next week,” Jennifer said.

“Have you had the ultrasound yet?” Ethan asked.

“Not yet, that’s coming up,” Jennifer said.

“Do you think it could be twins?” Ethan asked.

“It’s possible,” Jennifer said.

“We will find out,” Ethan said.

“Do you want a boy or a girl?” Jennifer asked.

“It doesn’t matter to me, all I want is for the baby to be healthy,” Ethan said.

“So if it’s a girl, she will be your heir?” Jennifer asked.

“If she is like both of us, she will be,” Ethan said.

“Do you think everyone will follow her lead?” Jennifer asked.

“The men are loyal to whoever is in charge,” Ethan said.

“Okay,” Jennifer said. He sat on the bed beside her.

“I love you,” Ethan said.

“I love you too,” Jennifer said. He pulled her into his arms and held her close.
