"D'you think, when they get older, they're gonna get why I'm not around all the time?" Awsten asks thoughtfully, cradling Jade carefully in his arms.  "Or do you think they'll be mad at me for leaving?"

"I think we'll have to explain it to them," Thea answers, giving a little smile down at Skye in her arms.  "But, I think they'll get it.  They already love you, honey, and that's not gonna change."

"When the guys get here, Hopeless wants to meet up and see what we have ready for the next album," he informs her, "the label is good, they're not trying to keep us stuck in the studio every day but, y'know, recording does have to be done at some point and we're all gonna be here so they figured this would be an okay time.  Not on the guys' first day here or anything, they wanna give everyone time to settle in before asking us to get to work, and they said they'll work around any plans we have.  They just wanna get some stuff done, if we're up for it."

"Are you up for it?" Thea inquires, giving him a worried look.

"I was actually gonna ask you that," he admits with a little smile.  "I don't wanna be gone for hours and leave you having to take care of the twins on your own.  If you're not cool with that, the label said we can wait on it 'til we've had some more time with the twins.  And they're not gonna have us tour any time soon, they just wanna work on recording.  No tours yet."

"Aws, you know I can handle the twins.  I mean, I'd always rather have you around all day, every day but that's just not the way life works.  I can take care of our girls while you go do your boy band thing.  I wanna know if you're up for this.  Are you gonna be okay?" Thea questions, trying not to ramble on too much.  She has a million things she could say about wanting Awsten around all the time.

"I might," he answers, giving Thea a nervous glance.  "Probably gonna be calling and texting as often as possible but I think I'll be okay with it.  I don't wanna be away from them or you, but the world's not perfect and I'm gonna have to be sometimes so...gonna give it a shot.  The people with the label said we can try it out and, if it's too much right now, we can do it later, a few months from now.  But I wanna try.  I wanna get this album recorded and have a real, actual album rollout with a good label.  But you gotta be willing to put up with constant texting from me while I'm at the studio."

"You act like I'd complain," she comments playfully, "constant texting from you is definitely not a bad thing."
