"I told you I'd come back."

"Mon El!" I yell sitting straight up in my bed, waking up Kara in the process.

"Hey, baby what's wrong?" She says rubbing my back.

"I... I had a dream," I say trying to catch my breath. "Mon El came back and had you and the kids tied up. He said, 'I told you I'd come back.'" I say fighting back a sob.

"Hey, hey. Baby it's okay, shhh. It was just a dream. I'm right here. Mon El isn't here. He will never hurt me or the kids. Or you. I will protect you, the kids, and this little one," she says pointing down to my stomach. "Nothing will happen to you. He will never come back. I'll even get Alex and the DEO to help out if something does happen." I nodd replaying the dream over and over in my mind. It still makes me uneasy but her words help ease my anxieties. Then, I stop replaying the dream and start to remember her words. Nothing will happen to you. He will never come back. I will protect you, the kids, and this little one. I smile at her words.

"We need to get this little one a doctors appointment so we can know everything is alright," I say changing the subject.

"I agree. I'll call Alex and see when we can come in," she says before getting interrupted by little footsteps running around outside our door and little giggles resounding through the house.

"I think they are awake," I say smiling at her. I lean in to kiss her before getting out of bed. I open the door and see three little munchkins speeding away, and by speeding away I mean superspeed. I turn to Kara who has a guilty look on her face. "Care to explain how I only just now figure out my children have powers?" I say. She laughs awkwardly and I smile back before I run out of the room to catch up with the kids.



h no, I was just caught. I know I should have told her immediately when Alex and I discovered it, but I didn't know how she would react. I get up and join her chasing the kids. Once I get Gracie in my arms, tickling her, I notice something out of the corner of my eye. Is that a baby bump? I say to myself looking at Lena. She currently has Kennedy in her arms with Jer clinging to her legs. I smile at the scene in front of me but immediately remember what I need to do.

"Lena, I know we have a lot to talk about but you need to get to the doctor. More specifically, you and our baby needs to see Alex," I say gesturing to her stomach. She hears what I say and stops smiling. It kills me that it made her stop but I knew it had to be done. Her eyes widen at the sight of her baby bump.

"How? It's only been like a week! You didn't start showing until like a month," she says frantically.

"I know it has baby, but we need to go. Make sure everything is fine," I say trying to comfort her. She nodds and looks at our kids' worried look on their faces. She smiles and bends down to their level, and I join her down there.

"Everything is fine babies, Momma just needs to go to the doctor to make sure your baby brother or sister is okay," she explains to them. I smile at her gentle tone know how good of a mother she is. I see our kids' faces brighten up at the mention of a baby.

"WE'RE HAVING A BABY!" they all shout simultaneously. I laugh at the telekinetic powers they share and Lena looks at me confused.
