Reeds (3) - Round 17
Kate laughed. "Of course, silly."
"Come on Katherine, let's go get some food," Ralph said as he cuddled her against his chest.
Kate smiled. "Would you like to meet your little sister."
Walker clapped. "Alright! A sister!"
"Go see your father in the kitchen," Kate said as she kissed his head.
Ralph smiled as he watched Walker talk to his baby sister and tell her about his day.
Kate smiled up at Ralph. "We've been so blessed Ralph. I can't imagine being any happier than I am right now!"
"Hi Kate. I came by to see Ralph. Is he around?"
Kate tsked. "You just missed him. He should be home in a little bit, though. He just took Walker & Katherine to the park. Do you want to wait inside?"
Charles smiled. "That'd be greet."
"Daaaaad," Heather whined. "Can we go now?"
Charles looked over at Kate. "Umm... yeah... I guess we should get going. We've taken up your entire afternoon."
Charles shuffled his feet. "Of course." Glancing at Heather, he held out his hand. "Come on whiner, let's go home."
The little girl looked startled and began chewing her hair.
"What's your name?" Walker asked as he ran over to her.
"She looks just like you," Ralph said sweetly. "She's just as pretty as her Mommy."
"Of course, my dear, I've had years of practice!" Ralph grabbed her arm and kissed up to her shoulder. "Vould you like me to use my fa-rench accent? Oui? Oui?"
Kate laughed and smacked his shoulder. "No! Your romancing has gotten us in enough trouble as it is!"
Ralph rubbed Kate's belly. "I wouldn't call this trouble! I would call this wonderful!"
Kate laughed. "Oh go take the kids to the park like you promise Don Juan."
Ralph wiggled his eyebrows. "Oui. Oui." Stroking her cheek, he kissed her forehead. "Go take a nap and get some rest while we're gone. Love you!"
"I love you, too."
