Her little girl could talk now!
Breandan laughed, "I've been in here for almost an hour already, old man!" he bragged. "Who's the laze-a-bed now?"
"Hmph!" Kearney said non-committaly, sitting down and shifting into lifting position. "One time does not erase all those late mornings!"
Breandan laughed, "Those late mornings were well worth it! I have my daughters now thanks to all that lovemaking!"
"How did you know?" he blurted out, mid-lift.
Breandan glanced at his brother quizzically. "What do you mean?"
At first, he didn't think his brother would respond, but finally Kearney muttered, "How did you know that Mackenzie was the one?"
Breandan noticed how tense his brother was, and how he avoided his eye. Apparently his answer meant a lot to him. He considered the situation for moment. "I guess I just knew how much I loved spending time with her. I made up reasons to go over to her house, or to call her. Is that how you feel about Enya?" he asked.
Kearney let out a sigh of disgust. "I don't know! Don't you think I should feel something either way by now? If she's my true love, then I should want to marry her, right?" Kearney angrily let the weights drop and stood up, stretching his sore muscles.
Shannon's image instantly flashed in Kearney's mind. He scowled. "Nothing," he snapped, feeling out of sorts. "I just have a lot on my mind."
Mackenzie smiled up at him. "Yes, finally got the little one to sleep. She's been a little fussy."
Mackenzie felt tears prick her eyes. She was so f-ing emotional these days! "Aw," she sniffed, "Thank you!" It was hard work taking care of their little girls, especially when she was pregnant!
"What's this about?" she asked cautiously.
Breandan thought of his brother, floundering in his relationship with Enya, and just held Mackenzie tighter. "I was just reminded tonight how truly lucky we are."
Breandan laughed. "That's what working out for 10 hours to improve my fitness skill will do!" he teased. "Come on, woman. Come scrub my back!"
He needed to see Enya.
Enya's voice came over the line, muffled. He could hear people in the background. "I can't talk right now," she said quietly.
"Are you okay?" he asked with concern. Something didn't sound right. "Should I come over?"
"NO!" she said quickly, "Don't come over! I'm fine. I just have to go!" She hung up.
Like Breandan had...
"Dear Shannon," he wrote. "I've been thinking of you..."
