"Da! Da!" Violet said, reaching for the bottle and eagerly pulling it to her.
Breandan smiled as he settled next to his daughter and watched her enjoy her breakfast. He loved how eagerly she approached everything in her young life!
"Ugh," she complained. "I tried to wait up for you last night, but I couldn't stay up."
"What evidence came to light?" she asked, curious what had kept him away so long the night before.
Breandan shook his head. "No, Lieutenant MacAnna and Leader O'Connell have assured me that there's no merit to those charges. They are arranging a council meeting to discuss what to do with the dragon though. O'Connell leans towards having the scientist, John Burb, run some tests on it."
"Mackenzie, we need to understand more about the dragon."
Mackenzie stood and crossed her arms. "It's not fair," she said mutinously. "And you can tell O'Connell that I said that!"
Mackenzie smiled and stroked her belly. "I can hardly believe we've been blessed with another baby so soon!"
Breandan returned her smile. "I hope it's a little girl," he told her.
"I thought you wanted a little boy!" she teased.
"That was before Violet came into our lives!"
"Ooo.. those pancakes look delicious, don't they?" she said as she watched the chef prepare the dish.
"Me, too," she told him as she started unbuttoning his shirt.
Kearney shrugged out of his shirt and moved to slip the straps of her dress off her shoulders, pausing only moments to nuzzle her neck.
Mackenzie shot him a disgruntled look. It didn't help that Violet didn't seem to want to walk. "I don't know!" she said with exasperation. "I thought babies were able to start walking around 9 months!"
"Well, in the baby book I read, it said sometimes they around a year. There's no need to push if she's not ready," he told her, walking in with a bottle for Violet. "He you go," he said as he handed it to Violet.
Mackenzie sighed. "I just wanted to be able to teach her something!" she said. "I'm worried that after this baby is born, I won't have the time anymore!"
Breandan kissed her temple. "Violet, and our new baby, will want for nothing," he declared so confidently that Mackenzie had to chuckle.
"You're always so sure of yourself!" she told him. "I find that incredibly sexy," she whispered.
He stroked Mackenzie's cheek. "Perhaps we should put Violet to bed and you could show me?" he suggested.
Heat flared between them.
Violet patted her mother's chest and then laid her head down on her shoulder. "Night, night," she echoed sleepily.
Breandan leaned over and brushed Violet's cheek. "We'll see you in the morning," he told her.
Nuala O'Ryan glanced up when her friend Enya entered the room. "Is he gone then?" she asked.
"No, he's sleeping," Enya told her.
Nuala bit her lip. "So everything is going as planned," she asked.
Enya nodded her confirmation. "Yes."
Nuala sighed. "It seems such a shame to continue with this..." she said, trailing off. "He's so nice."
Enya shook her head sternly. "Nuala, this is no time to get sentimental! "The course is already set..."

*AN - Goodness! It took Breandan forever to read his pregnancy book & Mackenzie to gain an extra cooking skill for the new recipe! Poor Violet only got to play with her parents for a short period of time right before bed - and everyone then went to bed and crashed! Most of their morning and night were spent autonomously after finishing their tasks. :)
And poor Kearney was exhausted after work. He'd stayed up too late the night before working out all day and then romancing Enya! After work, he rolled a wish to invite Shannon over and to woohoo with Enya at the same time! Knowing he wouldn't last long, he went over to Enya's for some nookie. Lol. Afterwards, he promptly fell asleep. Good thing he asked to stay the night first!
