Autumn glanced back at Meadow to see if had seen her parents making out like teenagers. "Casey! Not in front of the baby!" she whispered.
Casey rolled his eyes. "Please! If we didn't kiss in front of the kids - we'd never get to kiss at all!
Autumn kissed his cheek. "Oh yeah! Don't forget! Today's the birthday party & all your family will be over!"
"Looking forward to it!" Casey grinned.
Kevin sighed. "I'm doing well! It's hard... but... I'm okay..." He knew people were genuinely concerned, but this was getting ridiculous! He didn't want people pitying him!
Casey hugged his brother tight. He just couldn't imagine being able to lose Autumn and then being able to live a normal life afterwards!
Casey called out, "Good job, Summer!" as she ran past to show her Mom her report card, then turned to face his brother.
Clint nodded. "Casey."
So things were obviously still awkward between them, Casey thought, but at least he made the effort to come this time. It's almost as if... something had changed in Clint's life...
Autumn watched the boys go at it and sighed. What was it about brothers that made 30 year old men act like 6 year old boys?
"Uncle Clint?!" her Dad asked in mock outrage. "You'll pay for that traitor," he called as he ran over to scoop her up and tickle her.
"ENOUGH!" Autumn called out.
Everyone stopped and stared at her like she was crazy.
"I'm in labor!"
