Ily seems to look a lot like her father. The only thing that she got from me was her nose, all the rest was from Brendan.
By the end of the day I found out that Alayna is a natural walker and her brother and sister both like talking much more, making her the outsider of the group.
"Hey sweetie," I said. "What's going on here?"
She looked at me with disbelief. "Mom, didn't you hear? Michael Blake is here and he's participating in this man challenge thing."
"What?" I asked. The name Michael Blake sounded familiar, but I didn't necessarily know where I remembered it from. "Who's this Michael Blake guy?"
"He's only one of the biggest pop stars of this time period. Dang, you need to get out from under your classical music rock and listen to the hits!"
I laughed. "Sorry, I like Mozart and Bach more."
She shrugged. "Suit yourself, I have to head off to work, see you later."
"Bye," I said as she ran off towards her car.
I felt myself blush. "Well, I have purple hair, but my eyes certainly aren't beautiful. I find them quite boring, to be honest. Now your eyes are beautiful."
He smiled. "Why thank you, now before I go on trying to woo you, are you this Laura Johanson everybody speaks of?"
"I guess so. And are you Michael Blake"
"Why, yes I am. But you can call me Mike. I'm sorry to say this, but the small town of Sunset Valley demands that I deliver sing-a-grams until 5:00. Would you be willing to meet me at the beach at around 5:30?"
"I would love to."
"Great," He said. "I'll see you there."
I laughed. "Just a little bit. Thank you," I said with a small smile, hesitantly grabbing the flowers.
He smiled. "To be honest, I didn't even know what I was coming here for until last night. My agent just said that I had business to attend to."
"Oh," I said. "So... You don't really want to be here right now?"
"Whoa now," He said. "I never said that. To be honest, I like it here. I moved from Appaloosa Plains to go to Starlight Shores when I was 18 without looking back so that I could become famous. Sunset Valley kind of reminds me of home, so I'm glad I came."
"Wow," I said, feeling slightly stunned. "Do you like Starlight Shores?"
He shrugged. "It's alright, I always feel like I'm not really being heard there though."
"Well," He started. "I had originally wanted to be a country singer, but when I got my agent he would say things like, 'Oh, you just have that pop star look to you,' and 'I could make you a star.' So I listened to him and ever since then I haven't had much control over my career."
"I'm sorry," I said. "That must be rough... Maybe you could find a new agent?"
He laughed. "Unfortunately, that's a lot harder than it sounds. And plus, he's a good enough guy."
"Yeah, but if you're not happy..."
He smiled. "I'm happy as long as my music is making somebody happy somewhere."
With that the conversation was over and we headed home.
He chuckled and snaked his arms around me. "Now why on earth would I want to do that?" He whispered in my ear seductively.
I felt myself shiver and tried not to blush too much. "I dunno," I muttered. "Just thought I should put it out there."
We didn't end up making it much farther because we were both exhausted and the toddlers were all asleep anyways. The next morning, I woke up to an empty bed and decided to head upstairs to check on the triplets.
He smiled. "It's no problem, I love kids." He gestured over to Corbin who was playing quietly with his blocks. "That little guy woke up about 15 minutes ago so he's already fed."
"Wow," I said, feeling completely stunned. "How did I sleep through the toddlers today?"
He shrugged. "I have no idea, but I'm impressed by your sleeping abilities. All three of them ganged up on me."
"I'm so sorry," I muttered. Dealing with one toddler when you're not used to having kids around is tough enough, but I couldn't even imagine three.
I giggled. "You're adorable, you know this, right?"
He was radiating happiness from every ounce of his body; I swear, he had a smile from ear to ear. "Thanks," He said. "I just... Can't believe how amazing kids are! I mean, I always loved them, but I never actually got to take care of them."
After finding my favorite pair of pajamas, I turned around and started making my way towards the bathroom to change. "I'm glad you enjoyed it," I said. "Now if you excuse me, I'm going to get ready for bed."
"Today got me thinking," He started. "I'm ready to have kids whenever you are--"
I cut him off. "That's perfectly fine by me." Alright, call me weak, but I haven't gotten any action in how long now? A little bit too long for my liking. And plus, if some pop star is trying to seduce me, who am I to object? Even if I didn't hear about him until just yesterday at the park.
Her sister, Alayna, is a very quiet and introverted child who struggles in quite a few of her classes. But where she struggles in school, she's excelling in art. At home you can count on her being in front of an easel if she isn't eating, sleeping, or doing homework.
Okay, so fishing isn't very hard core, what do you want me to do, go bungee jumping?
Pregnant women shouldn't go bungee jumping.
Thanks for reading everyone!! Sorry it took so long to get out. And that it wasn't the best post ever. I tried my best. :D
