"OKAY BOYS! LET'S GO" Mr. Matthews yelled and all the boys groaned.
After Kaden apologized, Gabriel's parents and his two other brothers arrived. I swear, I never heard Mrs. Matthews squeal as much as she did when she saw her sister. Those two were like teenagers at a One Direction Concert.
Garrett and Greyson were the cutest little teenagers ever. I could tell that Garrett was the bookworm and Greyson was the player of the family.
Kaden, almost killed his cousin when he asked me out. It had to take Mr. Matthews, Gabriel, and Gabriel's father to hold him back before he attacked his baby cousin.
When he finally calmed down, he apologized to his cousin but wrapped his arm around my waist and kept me by side all day. Everywhere he went, I went. And vice-versa.
Needless to say, I was glaring at him the entire day.
Since Christmas was a couple of weeks away, we decided to celebrate it now because A) all of the family was together in one place and B) Eva's due date was on Christmas Eve so she wouldn't be able to celebrate Christmas with everyone. The boys decided to go pick a tree in the forest and cut it down. The women and children decided to go pick out ornaments and buy presents.
Since I had a headache, Kaden demanded that I stay here and rest along with Eva. I rolled my eyes but inevitably agreed with him. Mrs. Matthews took my list and promised to buy everything on it.
"We'll be right back sweetheart, don't you worry" she said while kissing my head. I smiled and nodded.
Kaden came up to me next and took my face in his hands. He rubbed his thumb against my cheek and I smiled.
"Be good Princess" he said and my smile immediately turned into a scowl. I shoved his arms away from me and huffed.
"When am I never not good?" I asked and he gave me a pointed look.
"Well, let's see. How about the time at the mall? Or the time when we went to the beach? Or how about..." he said but I stopped him.
"OKAY! I GET IT KADEN!" I yelled and he grinned before leaning down and kissing my forehead. He made his way to a snickering Gabriel and my cheeks blushed in embarrassment. I heard Eva giggle and I gave her a 'what' expression. She just shook her head and smiled.
Suddenly she jumped up and ran to the kitchen. I immediately became alarmed and followed her. When I got to the kitchen, I laughed.
She was carrying a huge tub of chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream, two pieces of cake, m&m's, and a water bottle. I went to her and helped her carry everything. She gave me a grateful smile and we went into the living room. I dumped all the junk food on the couch and sat on the floor.
"Um...Eva, I don't mean to offend you but, what's with all the food?" I asked and she giggle.
"Every night at about this time, I get these sweet cravings. I love to eat my sweets while watching my favorite re-runs of I Love Lucy" she said and it was my turn to giggle.
"What happens if you run out of sweets?" I asked and she laughed.
"Trust me, it's not a good sight. One time, I ran out of Ice Cream and started crying for no reason. Gabriel was freaking out and thought something was wrong with the baby. When he realized that I ran out of Ice cream, he jumped in the car and drove into town to get me 6 big tubs of cookie dough Ice Cream. I never cried again" she said and I was in hysterics. I couldn't help but imagine Gabriel running around the house freaking out.
Eva giggled and offered me some m&m's. I gladly took some and thanked her.
A half and hour later, we finished watching a I Love Lucy. Eva yawned and I knew she was getting sleepy.
"Do you want to lay down Eva?" I asked her gently. She shook her head and stood up.
"Nope, actually I wanna do something before I take my nap" she said and I shook my head.
"Okay, what do you want to do"
"I was wondering if I could get your opinion on something" she said and I nodded my head. "Excellent, now follow me" she said and I stood up to follow her.
She led me down the hall to a room with a baby pink door and a cursive M on it. I looked curiously at her and she opened the door. When she did, I nearly died on the spot.
Inside was the most gorgeous nursery I have ever seen. It was light pink with gold accents everywhere. I adored the crib because it was elegant and modern at the same time. I especially loved the little wolf trinkets dangling above it.
All in all, the nursery would be my dream nursery if I ever had a daughter.
"Oh My God!" I squealed. "The room is absolutely gorgeous" I said and Eva laughed.
"Why thank you. I thought so too" she said.
"So I'm guessing you already picked a name out for her?" I said while gesturing towards the light pink door. She nodded her head.
"McKenna Elizabeth Green" she said while beaming. I couldn't help but 'awe' at the gorgeous name. She smiled.
"That's gorgeous Eva. Congratulations" I said while hugging her.
Or should I say Trying to hug her?
"Thank you Sky, now I want your opinion on something" she asked.
"Shoot" I said.
"Should I change the curtains? I mean Gabriel said they were fine but I think he was lying to me"she asked and I shook my head. I was about to reply when I heard a deep chuckle.
"I would never lie to you Love. Especially regarding our daughter's room" Gabriel said while entering the room. I smiled when he kissed her and rubbed her tummy. She giggled.
"Gabriel's right, Eva. Keep the curtains" I said while leaving the room. I saw Gabriel give her a triumph smile before I closed the door.
I made my way to my room and when I took my first step inside, I was immediately crushed into Kaden's hard chest. I laughed.
"Kaden!" I said while pretending to whine "Let go! You're all smelly and dirty" I said and he chuckled. He kissed my nose before releasing me and heading to the bathroom in our en suite. I wrinkled my nose when I saw he was covered from head to toe in dirt.
"What happened to you anyway?" I yelled through the bathroom door.
"We found a tree by a lake and when my dad started cutting it down, Gabriel thought it would be funny to throw me in the dirty, muddy water" he yelled back "But jokes on him! I had to ride back in his new car!" He said and I giggled.
5 minutes later, he came out with a black v-neck shirt and gray pajama pants. He was rubbing a towel through his wet hair when I saw him, and he bent down to kiss my nose.
"So how was your evening with Eva?" He asked and I beamed.
"It was awesome! Kaden we had the best time laughing and talking!" I said and he laughed. "Kaden! You have to see their nursery! It's the cutest thing ever! If I ever have a girl, I want her room to look exactly like it!" I finished and he straightened up.
"Really?" He asked. "But what if we have a boy?" He said and my jaw dropped. We? I blushed and looked down at my hands.
"Kaden! Stop Joking!" I exclaimed and he chuckled.
"I'm not joking baby doll" He whispered into my ear before kissing my cheek.
I blushed again and he held out his hand.
"Come on, I'm starving" he said and I rolled my eyes. The blush still hot on my face.
"Let's go you human garbage disposal" I said and he laughed.
