Slice of Life
Shade and Runa
The rich, sweet aroma of vanilla made Runa’s mouth water as she turned on the professional quality electric mixer her mate, Shade, had gotten her for Christmas. She wasn’t a big fan of cooking meals, but she did enjoy baking sweet treats, and her family didn’t complain a bit.
Boots clomped on the floor down the hall, and she turned off the mixer as Shade sauntered into the kitchen. He’d donned his black paramedic uniform for his afternoon shift at Underworld General Hospital, and she had a powerful urge to rip it off. Right here in the kitchen. She could finish making cookies to go with the smoothie pops she’d just put in the freezer to celebrate Stryke’s A+ in science class later.
“Where are the boys?” he asked as he reached for a bottle of water in the fridge.
“They’re at Stewie’s pool party. Serena just sent a picture of them playing on the big float. It’s on my phone if you want to see it.”
“We should get a pool,” he said as he swiped his finger across her phone’s screen.
“We’re welcome to use theirs anytime,” she pointed out.
A smile ruffled his lips at the sight of the three dark-haired, espresso- eyed boys, the spitting images of their father, splashing in the water.
“Wraith and Serena made their house the place to be when they put it in, didn’t they?”
It was probably the very reason they put in the pool. “Well, they love parties and kids.”
“That’s because they only have one,” he muttered, but he was joking. Shade adored children, and when they were around, he could always be found nearby.
She fetched a can of cooking spray from a cupboard. “Speaking of kids, this morning a witch at the hospital told me I’m going to have twins in exactly eight years.”
“Only twins?” Shade twisted the cap off his water. “Awesome.”
She shook a spatula at him. “I remember when you wanted a whole bunch of kids.”
“I remember too,” Shade said. “And then we had triplets.” “Are you saying you don’t want more?”
Pausing with the bottle at his lips, he shrugged. “We’ve got centuries ahead of us. I’m not in a hurry.”
Neither was she. She loved being a mother, but she only had so much time between volunteering at the hospital and taking care of triplets, a mate, and two homes. Granted, one of the homes was a cave in a jungle, but it still had modern appliances and conveniences like hot running water and toilets, and modern things needed to be cleaned.
“I still can’t believe your drive to impregnate me hasn’t kicked in since the boys were born.”
“That’s how it works when we’re mated.” He grabbed a granola bar from the pantry and tucked it into the leg pocket of his BDU pants. “The drive only kicks in when our mates are ready. You’re clearly not ready.”
“You think? I barely have time to shower, let alone have more kids. But I’m sure everything will be different in eight years,” she added, with more than a little sarcasm.
“You never know.” He waggled his brows. “Wanna practice making our twins?”
Always up for a little practice, Runa eyed her mate, her body already heating at the thought of watching him strip out of his uniform. Or maybe she’d make him leave it on. It was sexy as hell.
“Don’t you have to be at work in fifteen minutes?” she asked. “Con will cover for me. Sin’s working late with DART today.”
Smiling, she peeled off her shirt and tossed it at him. “Then by all means…let’s get some practice in.”
