Still the one.

Alison woke at a reasonable hour and was only mildly ill. The morning sickness so far with her second pregnancy had been easier to handle than the first. She was especially glad for it on days like today. It was Valentine's Day and she needed to do something special for her handsome hubby.

Following tradition, Longshot had been up early and gone into the camp for his yearly chocolate haul. Despite being a happily married father of three (four soon), he still made out better than most single men in the country. They would be eating chocolate for weeks after the holiday.

While he was out, Alison bathed and dressed the twins in little Valentine outfits she'd bought for them. They got their breakfast and a little stuffed monkey each. Both were white with little red hearts on their palms and the bottoms of their feet. By the time Daddy returned home, there were two babies with slightly soggy stuffed animals and a picnic lunch for four waiting for him.

"Silly," she teased with a smile. The castle gates were in view! She pulled the jeep up to a smooth stop near the steps. John could retrieve it when he got back from his date.

She hopped out and started gathering up the picnic debris.

"Thass me," he agreed easily enough. He never took things too seriously unless it was SERIOUS BIZNEZ. Then he took things too seriously. Longshot was already unbuckling himself when he saw the castle gates.

He hopped out of the Jeep the second it stopped moving. He worked on getting both car seats unhooked and into the castle. Once both of his babies were liberated yet still snoozing, he scrambled into the castle to find his own Mommy for babysitting patrol.
