SEARCHING FOR A MATE - Season 6 Episode 74
We had been here way too long. With everything that had happened, this trip to the land of Fae lasted much longer than we expected it to. And, of course, I was missing my babies. I wanted to hold my little ones in my arms. I needed to feel them, hold them, smell adorable little scents. Without any of that I would never be able to fully calm down. I would never be able to truly know that they were OK.
The day after the do over wedding, Reece and I were ready to go home. All of our stuff had been packed, the guards were ready, everything was ready for us to head out. All we needed to do was say our goodbyes and head home.
It was an emotional time for us all, it really was. But I think that we would all be fine. Athair mòr has Daciana to keep him company now, and I am sure they are going to start a family as well. Not to mention, Aunt Glory had Trevor, and I know he was actively trying to start their family already. I don’t think that it will be long before I get to come and meet some new adorable little babies.
After hugs, tears and some more hugs, we were all in our cars and driving back toward our own castle. From one castle to another, from one group of family to another. That was basically what it was, just a change in scenery and those around us.
The moment that we pulled up in front of the castle the doors burst open, and dozens of people came running out. They had all been waiting for us.
“Mommy! Daddy!” Rika was screaming for me and Reece as she ran in front of the herd of people.
“Momma! Daddy!” Reagan was right on her heels.
“Papa! Daddy!” Those two words were shouted by four voices as Alexandria, Alyssa, Levi, and Luka were running down the steps and running toward Shawn and Dietrich. All the other children were doing something similar for their respective parents.
It was warming my heart to hear and see this scene play out before me. It was hard to watch it though, since Reece and I were busy scooping the twins up into our arms and squishing them between us in a big hug.
“VINCENT!” This one wasn’t a child that had spoken this time. “VINCENT!” Heather was running down the steps with their five children chasing after her. “OH, VINCENT!” She leapt right into her mate’s arms and held onto as tightly as she could.
“Heather, sweetheart, what is wrong?” He looked so scared as he held her and watched the children coming at them.
“I felt you die. I felt your presence leave me. It didn’t last long but I felt like you were gone forever. Vincent? What happened to you?”
“Heather, sweetheart, I am fine now. I really am. I will tell you what happened later, honey. I promise.”
Everyone present had frozen and was watching them with curious eyes. I could understand him not wanting to tell her what happened with so many eyes, and ears, present. I caught his eyes and heard him speak to me in my mind.
‘Can I tell her the whole truth? I don’t want to hide it from her, but I also know that it’s something that pertains to you more than anyone else.’
‘You can tell her.’ I smiled and nodded at him silently as I spoke only in our minds. ‘I trust you and I trust her. I will be telling the family soon and then from there we will all decide on what to do and who to tell.’
‘Thank you, Trinity. I just don’t want her to worry more than she already has. I didn’t know that she had been suffering like this.’
‘You’re irreplaceable, Vincent. I know that, and so does she. Take care of her, take care of your children. Go home and spend some time together as a family. That is my plan for the next few days.’
‘Thank you.’ He smiled again, this time with tears in his eyes. Everyone around us knew that we had been having a private conversation, but they weren’t saying anything about it. We were free to go about our business, which was good. We were done, mind you, but still we could have talked for hours, and no one would have said anything.
While I was thinking that, I heard a baby cry. I instantly knew who it was. OK, maybe Vincent and I couldn’t have talked for hours without interruption. Talia clearly wanted to see her mommy.
“Trinity, I think you need to pay some attention to the little princess here.” Mom was smiling with tears in her eyes, obviously wanting to hug me as well.
I handed Reagan to Reece and walked over to my mom and my baby. I wrapped my arms around the two of them, pressing my cheek against Talia’s as I did so. I held them against me and nearly cried as I felt the warmth of my family. While I held them, dad came over and wrapped his arms around us, adding to the warmth and the love that I was feeling.
Talia protested after a few moments, though. She wanted her mommy time not just a hug. After feeling her push against me I took her in my arms and cradled her against my chest. That was when Reece came over with Reagan and Rika so that our little family unit was now complete. The five of us were hugging each other and sharing our love for each other.
I had needed this. I needed to be here with these people. I had needed my babies above all else. There was nothing like the love that I had for these little ones and for Reece. They were my whole world.. Even though I was a Queen and a Goddess, I still care for my family the most. Was that bad of me?
