"McKenzi Shae Hollis!" She knew she was in trouble. She walked in, her blonde bob hiding her face. "Did wewe break this?" I asked pointing to the picture frame.
"I didn't mean to, Momma! Miles and me was running and I bumped into the meza, jedwali and it fell down and Miles told me not to tell wewe so I didn't and he set it back up on the meza, jedwali and we ran." Miles did have some of Aaron's mischeviousness.
"Miles Spencer Hollis!" I yelled for him.
He walked in inayofuata with his head bowed also. "Why did wewe tell your sister to not tell?"
"Because she would get in trouble." He didn't like it when she was in trouble. He looked out for his little sister. Even though he's only older kwa two minutes.
"She wouldn't have gotten into trouble if it wasn't an accedent." I bent down to his eye level.
"Kenzie wewe can go. But inayofuata time tell me." I told her.
"Sorry, Momma." She hugged around my neck and ran back into the living room with Aaron.
"Next time either wewe au your sister breaks something, even on accendent, wewe have to come and tell me. What if there was glass on the floor and one of wewe cut yourselves? Just be zaidi careful. And no zaidi running." I kissed his head and he smiled. "You can go."
I sighed. I don't know how Mom and Dad made it through the day. That reminded me. "Hey Aaron!"
He came into the jikoni and smiled. "Yes?"
He and I met at Harvord and instently clicked. He had blond curly hair and bright blue eyes.
"Today is May 16th right?"
"Yeah." He had a puzzled look on his face and it all clicked. "Oh, yeah. I will watch the twins. wewe go ahead."
"Thank you." I walked over and kissed him. "I won't be long." I grabbed the keys and headed for the door. Evan POV
I wait in my car untill I see a fimilar silver Lexus park inffont of me. I grab the flowers in the passenger kiti, kiti cha and step out of my car.
"Hey, Emma." I give her a tight one armed hug.
"Hey. I'm sorry I'm late, Kenzie and Miles broke something and well..you know because you've been through it." She laughs. "Speaking of, how's Morgan?"
"She's great." I smile. "She looked just like Ava." I laugh.
"Well, good thing Ava is pretty." She laughs.
"You ready?" I ask.
"Yep." She sighs and I push open the iron gate.
We walk around the big mti in the center and make our way to the other side. Our foot steps start to slow as we creep to a stop infront of Ever's stone.
"Hey, Sis." Emma smiles.
When we were about two au three, after Mom and Dad would put us to bed, she would onyesha up in our room. It didn't scare us because we just knew
who she was. She still comes around, of course she is older looking now. She looks just like Emma only wewe can tell she is a few years older. She's our gardien angel.
"Hey, Ev." I pull the old flowers out of the vase and put the new pink daisies in.
"Happy Birthday, yesterday. wewe know we like to come on our own too. But I don't think wewe mind." Em smiled.
"I would tell wewe about everything that is going on. About how big morgan is getting and how big my neice and nephew are getting too. But wewe already know." I smile. "Thank's for looking out for us. I just wish we would have met differently. I wish wewe could be living what we are." I frowned.
"But everything happens for a reason." Emma sighed and put her arm around my waist. "i'm not going to lie, I want to cry sometimes because I see all these girls picking up their little sisters from school and taking them shopping and stuff and I wish all the time we could have gotten to do that. But standing here, talking to you, will do just fine."
"We have to go. We have kids tearing apart our houses but I guess wewe knew that too." I stiffle a laugh. "Bye Ever. upendo you."
"I upendo you." Emma touches her stone and I take her hand as we walked back to the car. The wind picks up slightly and Ever kisses my cheek. I look over and Emma who is also smiling at me and I know she felt it to. Bella Pov
"Edward! Are wewe dressed yet? The kids will be over with their kids in ten minutes!" I put the roast in the tanuri, joko to keep it hot and juicy.
"Yes, Love." He walks in the jikoni and pulls out a beer. We do this every Saturday, why are wewe flipping out?"
"I'm just in a hurry because I started lunch a little late and have been trying to hurry it up a bit, but I'm done now." I smiled and place my hands on my hips.
"Well, good." He sets his bia on the counter and walks over to me. "We have seven minutes." He growles and kisses my neck.
"No, quickies!" I laugh.
"Fine." He frowns.
"We have plenty of time for that a little later. the kids aren't staying tonight." I whisper in his ear.
"Yes!" He hisses.
I laugh as I anwser the door. "Morgan! Miles! McKenzie!" They all run at me full force. "Oh, I missed wewe guys!" I pull back. "Go say hujambo to Pa."
They all let go and run for Edward. I stand up smiling as I meet my own two beautiful children. "Emma." I smiled as I pulls her into a bone crunching hug.
"Hey, Mom." She hugs back.
"Aaron." I smile and hug him.
"Ava." I smile and hug her.
"Evan." I hold out my arms and he pulls me into a hug. "Hey, Ma." He kisses my head. "How have wewe been?"
"It's only been a week." I laugh. "But I'm good."
"How did the doctor visit go?" Emma asked nervously.
"No signs of cancer." I smile. "None what so ever."
"Good." Evan sighed. "I was worried since GrandPa Charlie died of cancer, wewe know?"
"I know." I touched his cheek. "Enough of all this sad stuff. "Go say hujambo to your Father."
"Kay." Emma smiles and headed over to him. Always a Daddy's girl.
Evan kissed my head one zaidi time before going in to see Edward.
I smiled a followed after. Edward POV
I missed Ever. I really did. But it only seem to strike me at work, when I was alone. When I had Bella, Evan, Emma, Morgan, Miles, au Kenzie with me, it seemed to fade.
It was like they were filling up some of the hole that was permently in my heart. Every Friday after work I would go and talk to Ever. I missed her very much and talking always seemed to make it better somewhat.
But now I would foucs on Emma and Evan.
They both graduated juu of their class in highschool and Harvord. They were both very succesful lawers and had opened up together at E&E Law Firm.
morgan was six and in first grade, Miles and McKenzi were 5 and in kindergarten.
They all grew up too fast if wewe ask me.
Bella had the eff scared out of her when the doctor suggested she get tests run to look for cancer. None was found and for that...I am zaidi than thankful.
Our life went kwa alot faster than I wanted it too. Alot happened in the past 6 years.
Evan was married to Ava and had a baby girl, morgan ten months after.
My little girl, Emma, was married to Aaron Hollis who was also a lawyer at Evan and Emma's firm. They had twins Evan and Emma a mwaka later.
Charlie died of cancer four years zamani and my father had a mini moyo attack. He is alive but Mom still wories about him all the time, as do I.
But in all the bad and in all the good, we have our happy, loving, BIG family. And I wouldn't trade anything for it. THE END
Emma and Evan now
Emma's husband, Aaron
Evan's wife, Ava
