"Nice hair." Charlie said looking at Anora as she came into the home after another flight practice with Roscoe. 

"I don't want to talk about it." She grumbled before flopping into a chair and throwing her head back. "That dragon will be the death of me, I swear. It's like a big game to him, he dives when he wants to, I nearly fell off earlier."

Charlie's face paled. "Don't tell me things like that, An. I'll be forced to tie you down-"

She smirked at him.

"Not like that!"

"Oh come on, you weren't complaining last time!" She called after him as he left out of the room. His head poked out of the back room where Stella and Eliza were asleep.

"There are children in the house!" He told him in a whisper before leaving back into the room.

"You're half the reason why they're here." She mumbled. He reappeared.

"What did you say?"

"I said...I'm so hungry!" She said rubbing her stomach. "Starving."

"Mmmhmm, that's what I thought." He disappeared again.

"Muffin head."

"I heard that!"

Suddenly, the sound of a cry alerted the parents as Charlie had awaken, the mini-dragon, Stella, from her slumber.

"Way to go, Charlie. Way. To. Go."

With every day passing, it seemed like the girls were growing significantly in front of the parents. While Charlie was off to check on Norberta and the nest, and provide a feeding to the soon to be parent dragons, Anora was resting on the floor in between Eliza and Stella as the girls were resting on their backs looking up at their baby toys that Magnus and Sebastian had purchased for them. The toys floated about with bright colors and music that captivated the two, giving Charlie and Anora a chance to breathe.

It also provided some much needed entertainment for Iggy as he attempted to grab one of the toys in the air from the back of the sofa.

"I don't know how Molly managed two, let alone seven."  Anora said as the twins seemed quite active and awake that day. "Could you two imagine having five other siblings?"

Stella's lip pouted.

"Wait, don't imagine it!" Anora told her. "Just imagine you and Eliza. That's all we're having, trust me, unless your father does the pushing. I'm done. It was supposed to be one and done, but good things come in twos I suppose."

Eliza suddenly became excited with her babbling and let out happy noises as her arms jerked about causing the young mother to turn on her side and give her all of the attention. 

"What's got you so happy over here?" The two were noting the bright bird that was flapping over them and chirping a tune that Eliza seemed to enjoy all too much. Anora laughed at her daughter's amusement until Stella began to cry behind her.

Turning onto her other side to give attention to Stella, Anora left Eliza to the bird.

As soon as the mother gave her attention to the girl, Stella settled and began to pay attention to the toys again.

Eliza began to cry behind her.

"Oh no..."

When Charlie returned with exciting news, he came running into the home with Sebastian and Magnus behind him. He hadn't realized how quiet the house was, until he arrived to the living room, to find Anora asleep on the floor with Stella asleep on one of her arms and Eliza on the other, with Iggy curled up asleep on her back.

"You know, I heard these Anora mattresses were all the rage." Sebastian said from behind Charlie. "I didn't believe the hype, but now to see it in person...I'm a firm believer."

Charlie chuckled softly before walking over and lifting Stella into his arms, while Magnus collected Eliza up.

Sebastian was left with the sleeping Anora and Iggy while Charlie and Magnus brought the girls to sleep in their room.

With a smile on his face, he crouched down and poked Anora, until she awoke. Groggily, she lifted her head and looked around.

As soon as the mother noticed the babies no longer around her, she jumped up to her feet, knocking Iggy off her back with a loud howl.

"Sorry, Igs. " She said. "Where's Stella and Eliza?!" 

Sebastian gave her a confused look. "You mean, they aren't here with you? I thought you were watching them."

A look of panicked washed over Anora's face before Sebastian could inform her that he was kidding. He was actually in a state of shock as he had never witnessed the woman to be scared or nervous over anything, including the ton weighing dragons she worked with.

Charlie walked out and saw her moving around frantically.

"What's going on?"

Anora looked to him, completely pale in the face, as if she would be sick at any given second.

"I..Charlie, I had the girls with me, on the floor, they fell asleep and...and they're not here!"

"Shhh..." Charlie walked over to her quickly. "They're in their room. Magnus and I just put them in there a minute ago to keep sleeping."


Her eyes narrowed as she turned her head slowly in Sebastian's direction.

"I'm sorry!" He blurted out. "I was just trying to joke with you-"

No one had expected Anora to jab Sebastian directly in the throat, causing him to let out a gagging noise as he gasped for air.

"That's not funny!"

As Anora continued to scold Sebastian, Magnus appeared at Charlie's side.

"Should we help him?" Charlie asked the man.

"No," Magnus shook his head. "Sebastian has to learn that he should never mess with a dragon especially pertaining to her young."

"Say it!" Anora had Sebastian pinned to the ground with his arm twisted behind his back.

"I'm sorry!!" Sebastian called out.

"Okay, so maybe now we should help him." Magnus added.

"An, get off of him." Charlie placed his arms under hers and lifted her off of Sebastian's back. "He said he was sorry, all is right, just calm down. I have some good news for you."

"I get to hit him again?" She pointed in Sebastian's direction, who cowered behind Magnus.

"No," Charlie put his hand over hers and lowered it back to her side. "I was going to tell you that Norberta's eggs are hatching. Roscoe and Norbie are about to become proud parents."
