sleepswthdemons: (Phoebe With Other Baby)
[personal profile] sleepswthdemons
With Mina taking care of the store today, Phoebe was in the backyard of the house with the twins. She had put up barriers to make sure that they couldn't wander off into the woods. There were blankets spread out on the grass and the baby swings were out here, too.

Currently, though, Phoebe was on the grass with both twins in her arms and she was telling them fairy tales from the old book that was open in front of them.

"Did you know that your Mommy's favorite fairy tale is Cinderella?" Thea giggled and Peri patted her nose. "Yes, and I even got my Prince Charmings, too."

"Funny," Drake said, popping up unexpectedly as he was wont to do. "I would've thought the story of you and the Colethazor was more like Beauty and the Beast."

Phoebe laughed and that caused the twins to giggle. "Say hello to your Uncle Drake, girls."

Phoebe looked at him. "You would be surprised how many people have said that to us."

Drake knelt on the grass so he could wriggle his fingers at the twins. "Because 'charming' was never something I expected from Cole. Really, his manners were atrocious back in the day."

She smiled at him and shook her head. "Never with me. Except for the time where he was insane from being tortured after the second vanquishing and killed me, Cole has always been very charming."

"And I bet he's a total goof over these little ones," Drake said, tweaking Thea's nose.

Phoebe nodded with a grin. "Oh he really is. He's such a good Daddy."

"I bet he even would've sat on the eggs," Drake said. "Well, if there were eggs. You got lucky there."

Phoebe's eyes widened. "Eggs?" She squeaked.

Peri thought the noise was funny and giggled at her Mommy, clapping her hands.

"Hey, don't get all birthist on me," Drake said teasingly. "Being hatched from an egg is a fine and noble way to come into the world. I mean, look at me."

Phoebe laughed and shook her head. "You are just fine. I just can't picture Cole sitting... eggs..."

"How about yourself?" Drake said. "Or would you make the boys do all the work?"

Phoebe giggled again. "They could sit on them," she said with a gleam of mischief in her eye. "Someone needs to be able to work the cameras."

"I'm surprised they didn't sit on you," Drake said. "Or keep you confined to bed at least. I know how possessive Cole is. Grr, mine, hands off!"

She smiled softly at that. "Drake, you should have seen both him and Anders when they found out I was pregnant. They were being so careful with me and being so gallant and gentle... they scared the hell out of me because I hadn't told them about the pregnancy yet." She looked down at Thea who was tugging gently on a strand of her hair. "Then, during the pregnancy, wow did they ever get overprotective and I'm sure Cole really would have liked to keep me in bed and not have me getting up and doing anything during the entire pregnancy."

Drake snickered. "I pity any boy who shows up on your doorstep looking to take one of these lovelies out on a date."

The nice thing about having demonic shimmer-transport options was that Sam could cover the NCAA Women's College World Series for the sports blog he'd been writing for lately in Oklahoma City, and still stay home with the family.

Which, at the moment, meant working feverishly on the baseball diamond backstop nearby as Phoebe read to the twins. Yes, again. It was like a compulsion. He was going to tweak the thing to death eventually.

"What if they don't like baseball?" Cole said idly from where he was inspecting the baby swings for any sign of wear that would necessitate replacing them immediately. He mostly asked because he wanted to see Sam flail.

Oh, the look Sam gave him. "Then I'll plant a cornfield around it and we can re-enact that movie."

He didn't flail, exactly, but he did give a couple of unnecessarily hard twists of his wrench to the bolt he was tightening.

Phoebe tried not to giggle and pretended to be reacting to one of the twins.

"No, no summoning ghosts around the girls," Cole said. He glanced around the backyard. "Think we should get a pony? Well, two ponies, one for each."

"Not that movie, dork! And what if they don't like horses?" Sam shook the wrench at him then felt the need to disclaim, "Girls, don't do what I do. No waving heavy blunt objects at people unless they need to be vanquished, got it?"

"Oh yeah... that's going to work," Phoebe said dryly. "Look how it works on me, after all."

"All girls love horses," Cole said, giving Sam a "duh" look. "And no mentioning vanquishing period around the twins. It could give them a complex."

"Who doesn't love baseball?" Sam retorted with a mulish expression. "I'd ask if I could take 'em with me when I go to the softball game today but they've drawn a record crowd this year and it's insane."

"I only liked it when you were playing," Phoebe inserted helpfully.

"You needed tighter pants, though," Cole had to add.

Sam snorted. "Not exactly an issue any more, is it? Really, you guys wound me."

And of course there was a Patty wandering by.

"Hi, sweetie," she said, plopping down facing Phoebe and the babies. "And hello, girls. How are my favorite granddaughters?"
