Excerpt

 

“I want to talk to you guys about something first. It’s important.”

Rogan’s eyes widened, and Hudson felt his heart still in his chest. Anxiously, he clenched the cushion on the back of the couch and held his breath, waiting for her to continue. Parker muted the TV and turned his narrowed gaze her way, his arms over his wide chest like he expected a confrontation. Sawyer, who was never rattled, sat up a bit more in his seat, turning away from the TV.

“What’s up, honey?” Sawyer asked, rubbing at the stubble on his jaw.

“Um,” Rachel picked at a piece of fuzz on the couch and turned her gaze away from all of them, “I’ve been thinking about having another baby.”

“You’ve mentioned it before.” Hudson’s anxiety fizzled and he hugged her close. “Why do you seem so nervous about it?”

“Because, you ass, she’s already overwhelmed with the two hellions we have,” Parker answered for her. “Sunshine, you know there’s no pressure from us. If you want another baby, we’re happy to add to the family, but we don’t want you to feel like a brood mare either.”

“I know, but you guys have always wanted a big family, and I don’t want to disappoint you. If we don’t get cracking soon, the kids will be too far apart to be able to play with each other,” she sounded like she’d put a lot of thought into it, but Hudson wasn’t sure if they were supposed to agree with her, or deny her here. What was the right answer?

“Is this because Claudia is pregnant?” Sawyer asked, surprising Hudson with the new information.

“Claudia’s pregnant?” he asked, confused.

“Sawyer!” Rachel scolded, “She said not to tell anyone. Damn it. She would tell the guys tonight; she just found out. She thinks she’s due in the fall. It’s still really early. Sawyer and I only found out today when we went to the grocery store and ran into her. She was too excited not to tell me.”

“Mack’s going to be thrilled,” Rogan said, grinning ear to ear.

“I think he’d get her pregnant every year if she’d let him,” Parker added. “Ryker will be excited too. Little do they realize how much extra work a second kid is.”

Rachel nodded her agreement, and Hudson decided they needed to get back on track.

“So, one of your best friend’s is pregnant, and you’re feeling what? Guilty? Jealous?” he asked, cringing inside as he said the words. They didn’t quite come out like he’d have liked.

“No!” she snapped. “Yeah. Oh hell, I don’t know. You know I’ve mentioned having another baby recently, it’s not a surprise.”

“No, it’s not a complete surprise, but you’ve also mentioned how stressed you’ve been, and we’ve all noticed how tired—”

“What Hudson’s trying to say is that we don’t want you to feel like you have to get pregnant to keep us happy,” Parker filled in. “If you want another baby, we’re all happy to oblige. We love our children, but we love you, too, and we don’t want you overwhelmed.

Parker’s words were exactly what Hudson had meant to say, and it frustrated him that he’d been unable to deliver them correctly. Now Rachel probably thought he was being an inconsiderate ass.

“Maybe it would be best to think on it some more,” Rogan offered, “Another baby would change things for all of us. And it would delay your sunroom.”

“Okay,” she nodded. The look on Rachel’s face made it clear she wasn’t keen on that idea, and, “But let’s really start thinking about it as a possibility. If any one of us doesn’t feel like the timing is right, we’ll wait.”

They all agreed before Rachel took Rogan’s hand and let him lead her off to bed. Parker turned the basketball game back on, but Hudson found he couldn’t even pretend to focus on it anymore.

They’d never done any sort of testing on Juliet or John because none of them cared who had fathered each child. When Juliet had been born with Sawyer’s dimples, and John had been born with Parker’s cleft chin, there’d been little doubt of their parentage. But there was a tiny piece of Hudson which wanted to be the one to father the next. He’d love any children Rachel carried, but the idea of her carrying a piece of him inside her elated him. Sadly, there was no way he could tell her that without sounding like a selfish prick.

His brain spinning with new information and visions of Rachel pregnant, he took himself to bed. Maybe they’d get a chance to have a heart-to-heart talk this weekend. There was rarely a time they got to sneak away just the two of them, so this forty-eight hours would be priceless. He’d make every minute count.
