Gabe Duncan: Meeting Toby Duncan

Suparna's POV:

"Gabe, I'm coming over to your house today." Gabe's eyes widened in shock when I said that.

"You want to come over? But we have a baby at home. And he eats, cries, and poops." I rolled my eyes as we went over to my locker so I could take out my books.

"That's fine. I just want to meet your family. But you always stop me. I really don't know why. We've been dating for almost a year, and you've met my family many times." I thought about the first time he asked me out, and when he first met my parents.

"Your family is cool, though. My family is crazy." I rolled my eyes again. I gave him a kiss on the cheek. 

"Come on. You dropped me off at school today, so you're my ride. Now let's go to your house. I want to meet the new baby." Gabe took my hand, and we walked out together. We found his car in the parking spot and got in. His house was pretty close to school, so it was a short drive. Once we got out, Gabe wrapped his arm around my waist and looked me in the eye.

"Now, I'm warning you. My family is crazy. They will drive you insane. If it's too much, you can just tell me, and I'll drop you off. You've been warned." I walked over to the door and waited for Gabe to take his keys out and unlock it. Once he did, I saw a baby in a baby bouncer, a toddler drawing, and two teens arguing in the background.

"So, I'm guessing the baby is Toby, the toddler is Charlie, and the two arguing are PJ and Teddy." Gabe nodded, confirming my assumptions. The elder teens turned to me and smiled.

"Hi, you must be our little brother's girlfriend. You're so pretty. And out of his league. My name's Teddy." Gabe glared at his sister as I let out a laugh.

"Yeah, I'm his girlfriend. My name's Suparna. It's wonderful to meet you." Teddy smiled at me.

"And you have manners. Is my brother blackmailing you?" I laughed a little louder this time. PJ walked over to me.

"Hi, you must be Suparna. I'm PJ, the better brother." Gabe hit his brother on the shoulder while I giggled at Gabe's siblings.

"Yup, I'm Suparna." We talked for a while when Charlie came up to me.

"Are you my Gabey's girlfriend?" I nodded my head. I squatted down to her level.

"And you're Charlie, right? Don't tell Gabe, but you're his favorite." Charlie giggled while pulling me into a hug.

"You're really, really pretty." Charlie said shyly.

"Well thank you, sweetie." Gabe took Toby out of the bouncer and led me into the kitchen. I watched as he grabbed some formula out of the cabinet. He looked like he was struggling.

"Here, I can help. Should I make the milk?" Gabe nodded his head while rocking the now crying infant. I followed Gabe's instructions and made the bottle. I tested the temperature on my wrist before handing it to Gabe. I looked over to see a middle-aged woman near the door, along with the rest of Gabe's siblings.

"Oh, I'm sorry. Gabe looked like he needed help. So I made the milk. I'm sorry for intruding." I looked down at my shoes, feeling bad for taking charge.

"No, sweetie. That's perfectly alright. I was just admiring the two of you. I'm Amy, Gabe's mom. You're Suparna, right?" I nodded my head, now facing Mrs. Duncan.

"It's nice to meet you, Mrs. Duncan. Again, I'm sorry for intruding." Mrs. Duncan waved me off and walked over with groceries in her hand.

"Suparna, how are you so nice? Gabe, you better learn from her." Teddy said as she walked over to me and put an arm around my shoulder. I blushed as she said that.

"Mrs. Duncan, do you need help with the groceries?" Before she could answer, I helped her pack away the items.

"Thank you, honey. Do you want to stay for dinner? I usually don't like Gabe's girlfriends, but you're so sweet." I blushed again before nodding my head.

"Thank you, again. And sorry, I just love kids. I wish I had siblings like you guys." Teddy, PJ, and Mrs. Duncan awed when I said that. 

"Well, you're welcome to come over any time you want." I nodded my head before going over to help Gabe with the baby. I tried to take the bottle from him, but he stopped me.

"Why don't you hold Toby while I wash the bottle?" I nodded my head shyly. Gabe handed me Toby gently while taking the bottle away. I supported his head and stared down at him. He reached a hand towards my face and giggled. I let out a small laugh while playing with him.

"How are you so good with him? He cries whenever anyone except Mom and Gabe hold him?" I didn't answer as I was too busy smiling at the baby. Gabe wrapped his arms around me from behind and held my arms.

"Clearly, Toby knows she's a good woman. Besides, if I love her, he definitely loves her even more?" I blushed as I turned my head to face Gabe and kiss his cheek.

"This wasn't bad, right, Gabe?" He shook his head as we continued to hold Toby.
