Standing there, in the distance, were both Mark and Katelynn.
“Mark! What the hell are you doing out of the hospital? For that matter how did you get out of the hospital? How did you find me here? My cell phone is still at work.” Mark and Kat just stood there “Hello can you two hear me? This isn’t fucking funny!”
“Of course, it’s not funny Emi, but neither is going off the grid.” Mark said calmly “As to your other questions: We both were worried sick about you. As to me getting out of the hospital well for that you have to ask Kat. As to how we found you, that was just a simple process of elimination that we started this morning.”
“Well Katelynn, how did you get your Dad out of the hospital?” Emily asked crossly for she had a feeling.
“Not how you’re thinking Mom, honest. I just came into his room this morning, threw his clothes at him, told him to get dressed because I was getting him out of the hospital. We just walked out like we owned the place.”
“How did you fool the monitors? They should have tripped when you disconnected them.”
“Please Mom, give a girl some credit. I just hacked Dad’s monitors so that they would continue to give the nurses a signal for the time that we needed to get out.”
“YOU HACKED THE HOSPITAL!” Emily was now extremely pissed
“Of course not, Mom. I just hacked Dad’s monitors” Kat said cool as a cucumber.
“Damn it Kat! Do you know the risk you put your Dad in? Well, do you? And you Mark. You should know better than to leave the hospital without being released! Damn it you two, I love both of you and I couldn’t live if I lost you!”
“Emily dear; We came because we love you and couldn’t bear the thought that you might do something terrible. I’ve already lost one woman in my life because I couldn’t check on her when her world was turned upside-down. I’m not about to lose you too.”
When Emily looked at Mark, he had a tear in his eye. She knew that he was being sincere and completely truthful with her. She now knew that she could never hold a grudge against Mark or Katelynn ever again. They risked Mark’s life and Kat’s freedom and sanity, to break out of the hospital, to make sure that she was ok. Emily took a deep breath and walked slowly up to them. Standing there, Emily could see just how nervous Mark and Kat were. Neither wanted to lose her and Emily didn’t want to lose them either. Emily took the last step and putting an arm around both of them pulled them to her and gave both a hug and a kiss on the cheek for Kat and one on the lips for Mark.
“Come on you two” chirped Emily “let’s go home. Oh Katelynn”
“When we get home, we really need to talk about you hacking your Dad’s monitors.”
“Of course, Mom.”
Emily put an arm around Kat’s shoulders and the other around Mark’s waist as they walked back to the vehicles.
When they got home, Emily checked on Mark’s knife wound. Surprisingly it wasn’t bleeding but she knew that Mark still needed to go back to the hospital. Before that though there was the matter of Katlynn’s hacking so the three of them sat down at the kitchen table.
“So, Kat how long have you been a hacker?”
“Gee Mom you say that like it’s a bad thing. I’m a white hat hacker. That means that I’m one of those who look for bugs in software and report them to the company so that the bugs can get fixed. And I’ve been doing it for years. I’ve even been able to hack the Pentagon. They didn’t even believe that I had done it until I sent them some of their classified documents as proof. It goes without saying that they were pissed. Still not sure what pissed off the DoD more, that they got hacked or that a young teen successfully hacked them without them knowing about it until it was over.”
“Just promise me that you’ll be careful on what you’re doing. I don’t want to lose you.”
“Don’t worry Mom. Companies pay good money to white hat hackers. I actually make really good money doing it and I’m helping people at the same time.”
“Now Mark, how long have you known about this?”
“For as long as she’s been doing it. Who do you think, taught her in the first place?”
“You hack too?”
“Not anymore. With work and raising an energetic young girl I don’t have the time to do much hacking. Besides Kat’s much better at it. I just advise her once in a while.”
Emily just shook her head. She still had a lot to learn about her family and she was looking forward to learning.
“Well let’s get something to eat and get Mark back to the hospital. He’ll need to be there for at least a few days.” Emily stated.
Mark then whispered in her ear: “How bout I eat you?”
“Mark you’re a dirty boy!” exclaimed Emily cheerfully “What am I going to do with you?”
Mark just smiled at her warmly. This just melted Emily’s heart. Just seeing Mark’s smile reminded her just how lucky she was and just how close she had come to losing everything.
“How bout I make dinner so that you two can find a room” Kat giggled causing Emily to blush.
With that, Mark took hold of Emily’s hand and led her to the bedroom. They both knew that they would have to be careful, but both of them, Emily especially, were on fire. It would have taken a biblical disaster to stop them. To save time they shed their clothes as they went earning them a laugh from Kat but neither of them cared. When they got to the bedroom, Emily gently pushed Mark onto the bed and took his cock into her mouth. This was something that she usually didn’t did, but this time she just had to do it. Mark was babbling like an idiot but Emily wouldn’t stop, then Mark started to move around and Emily stopped and growled,
“Don’t move or I’ll stop and never do this again.” Mark froze. He might have been babbling like an idiot but he was far from being an idiot. Satisfied that she had stopped Mark from moving, Emily continued. She had never felt Mark’s cock so hard that it actually curved up a bit and all the veins were highlighted. Emily then had a wicked idea. She kept sucking and bobbing her head up and down then she started using her tongue, but not fast enough to make Mark blow.
Mark thought that he was going to pass out from the lack of blood in his brain. Emily was proving to be a very talented cock sucker. Eventually despite him not moving and her not going fast enough he was going to blow, but just as he was going to give her a warning she stopped and looked up at him with a warm yet devious smile. She jumped up and in one movement impaled herself on Mark.
“Why; you’re not thinking of cumming without me, are you darling?” she asking knowing full well that Mark was out of it, but it was still fun for her. Mark just shook his head weakly. Emily then began to, ever so slowly, go up and down while moving side to side at the same time. Mark’s eyes bulged at this. Emily smiled figuring that it was time to turn up the heat even more. She added hip rotations to her movements and using her Kegel muscles she began to gently massage Mark’s penis.
Mark thought that he could handle Emily’s moving in the two dimensions, but when she added the third and fourth axis of movement Mark lost it. He began to have the most powerful orgasm of his life. His toes curled so hard that they cramped, he thrust up so hard that Emily was lifted up by two feet and this caused her to squeal with delight. Mark’s cock then felt like it exploded as countless jets of cream shot out, drowning Emily’s cunt and actually overflowing it.
All this happening inside Emily had sent her over the edge as well and she followed Mark into the abyss. What was that saying she thought ‘stare into the abyss and it stares into you or something like that …ah screw it.’ She plunged deeper and deeper. Far deeper than she had ever been before. It actually felt like she was having an out of body experience. It was obvious from the look on Mark’s face that he was right there with her. Eventually they both returned to their bodies. They were both drenched in sweat and were panting harder than if they had just run back-to-back marathons. Somehow Mark managed to turn both of them on the bed so that he could pull the covers up over them.
It was late the next morning when they woke up. At first, Emily was confused. The light was coming into the room wrong after all it had been late afternoon when they had gotten home. It wasn’t until she found her phone that everything made sense. It was almost noon and it was Monday.
“FUCK WE OVERSLEPT!” Emily screamed as she raced to the shower. She was late to work and that had never happened before.
“Don’t worry sweetie” Mark said calmly “Kat called both of our bosses this morning and told them that we’re not feeling that well so we won’t be coming into work today. Now how bout we get back into bed.”
Emily just stared at him, “How do you know?”
“I woke up earlier, just before Kat left for school. She told me what she did so I just crawled back into bed.”
“Mark” Emily screamed “I’ve never missed a day of work and I’m not about to start now!”
“And you would make Kat a liar?” Mark asked innocently but with a wicked grin on his face.
“Damn it, you two are going to completely corrupt me!”
“Of course. Now how bout you turn that shower off and let’s relax a bit.” Emily moved without thinking about it. She turned off the water and moved into Mark’s arms. The feelings that came over her were almost overwhelming. She felt bad for not going to work but she felt so good and safe in his arms. This decided things for her. She would skip work today and spent it with her lover, but first she made Mark lay down on some towels she put on the bed. The doctor in Emily had kicked in and Mark knew better than to argue. His side still hurt a bit but he was surprised at how little pain he felt. There was some seepage but other than that everything was good. This surprised Emily. Mark had gotten a serious stab wound Saturday morning and yet he was moving around with little pain.
“Happy now honey? How bout we wrestle up some grub? I’m starving and I bet you are too, especially with all that screaming you were doing yesterday.”
“I wasn’t that loud!” Emily said defiantly. Mark just gave her a fish eyed look.
“Emily, I thought a monster was going to pop out of your chest with the way you were going at it.”
“I don’t do that!” Mark just gave her the bull shit look and Emily’s face turned deep red. They went out to the kitchen, made some brunch, and started cleaning up the house a bit. After this last weekend it was a mess. At one point, Mark snuck up on Emily while she was doing laundry. He picked her up and put her on the washing machine while it was running. Emily tried not to get turned on, but the vibrations from the washer running plus Mark’s strong hands was just too much for her and she gave in. She found that she really liked doing it like this. Not only did she have the vibrations to drive her wild, but also the different angle that Mark had. He was able to drive up into her at such an angle that he bumped into her cervix and rubbed her G-spot with every thrust. She also became aware of one other thing that was driving her wild with lust, she was completely at Mark’s mercy. In this position, she couldn’t do anything much. She didn’t worry because she trusted Mark, she just worried that she might go insane before he finished with her. Before long she was singing like an opera singer and she eyes were clamped shut as she held on to anything that she could grab, with a white-knuckle grip. Within minutes she wasn’t just cumming she was uber cumming. Her pussy was gushing like a white-water river and it showed no signed of stopping. Furthermore, neither did Mark, he just kept pounding her without mercy. By this point she was nothing more than a ragdoll for Mark. She had pretty much collapsed and was leaning on Mark’s shoulder. Finally, Mark was getting close. As his cock swelled, Emily was driven further from reality and deeper into the abyss. When she finally felt his white-hot sperm shooting into her pussy, she passed out.
After Mark finished, it took everything he had left to stay on his feet. Not only was he exhausted but Emily’s screaming in ecstasy in the small, hard walled laundry room had made his ears ring. It took a couple of minutes before he was able to completely focus. He was then able to gently pick Emily up and carry her back to their bedroom so they could lay down to rest. Even through it they had been fucking for only half an hour, Mark was exhausted and Emily had passed out.
Meanwhile at school, Kat had been turned into a celebrity for her killing the guy that had been tormenting the school halls for months now. Every girl almost bowed down to her like she was royalty while almost every guy gave her a wide berth. For none of them wanted to endure her wrath. Kat now had the reputation of one of the wrathful goddesses of ancient times, something like Athena, goddess of wisdom. Everyone knew that Kat was wise beyond her years; now she also had proven that she was extremely dangerous as well. Personally, Kat was embarrassed, she hated the attention that she got with one exception. There was one guy that didn’t seem offput by her reputation. He was a new transfer to the school named Brandon, and Kat actually found his nerdy look attractive. He was tall, skinny as a rail, had brown hair, and a bit of ache, but carried himself with a quiet confidence. He actually reminded Kat a lot of her dad. They both were wary of each other. It was obvious to all around that they found each other attractive, but neither had no real idea on how to proceed.
When Kat got home, she started laughing. The house smelled of hot sex and she could hear her mom and dad snoring in their bedroom. After she had gotten her homework done, she started dinner. This woke her mom and dad up from their slumber. Kat had to sit down when Emily came out for it looked like she had been washed and put away wet. Her hair was a mess, she had heavy bags under her eyes, and she walked with a bit of a limp. Her dad on the other hand was full of energy and was almost bouncing off the walls. Kat figured that this was as good as time as any to tell them her big news.
“Hey Mom, Dad, can we chat for a minute?” Emily and Mark were both taken back for Kat was appeared as nervous as a mouse in a room full of cats.
“What’s wrong Kat?” Emily asked suddenly concerned.
“Uh well… I … well I …” Kat took a deep breath “I met this boy at school” she whispered.
Mark and Emily looked at each other and smiled.
“Mark, don’t you have something to do in the barn?” Emily asked
“No” Mark said confused. Emily just looked at him
“You sure about that?”
“Oh, ya thank you, I almost forgot.” With that he almost ran out of the house.
Emily looked back at Kat and Kat swallowed;
“Ok Kat, let me hear everything about him.” Kat now wished that she had kept her mouth shut, for some reason she was embarrassed. “Oh, come Katelynn, he can’t be that bad.” This woke Kat up, nobody used her full name, many at her school didn’t even know her full name. Kat went on to describe Brandon in every detail. Emily and Kat conspired on how to get Brandon to ask her out, eventually conceding that it was too early and they would have to what to see how things unfolded.
As Mark and Emily’s wedding day got closer, the closer Mark and Emi became. It was almost like they were becoming one person. The biggest problem that Emily had was that with all the work she was now doing on the farm her muscles were getting bigger. She already had to get bigger scrub pants because her ass was now solid muscle, and was worried that her dress wouldn’t fit. Almost all fat on her body had now been worked off, even though she was eating more now than she had before. The Saturday before the wedding she had gone over to Cindy’s to make sure it still fit. If anything, it fit even better.
Mark made to sure that his suit still fit right and that the hogs that they would use would be prefect for roasting. Kat decided that she was going to ask Brandon to be her date for the wedding and he agreed providing that either one of his parents could drop him off or someone could pick him up for he didn’t drive. When Kat told Mark and Emi, they decided, much to Kat’s surprise, to have a limo pick up Brandon and his family and bring them over. Kat quickly cleared this with Brandon. He assured her that they would be on time for he was starting to really warm up to Kat. The day before the wedding, Mark slipped away for a couple of hours, he had something that he had to do. Neither Emi or Kat were surprised at this. They knew that he was going to the cemetery to say hello to his folks and sister. It was very early on Saturday morning when Mark got back and passed out on the couch.
Emily was up at her usual time on Saturday morning. She had butterflies in her stomach, for she was finally going to get married. Something that she had always wanted. She walked out and seen that Mark was sleeping on the couch and that Kat was already up. They two of them made some coffee and took it out to the patio so that they could watch the sun rise. It had been forecasted to be a beautiful day and it was definitely starting out that way. The ladies finished their coffee and fruit that they brought out with them and they went back in. Mark had gotten up and they could hear him in the shower. The ladies then left a note and slipped out to go to Cindy’s so that they could get ready.
Mark got out and seen the note. He still had some work to do for he had to start roasting the hogs. Everything was ready; all he had to do was use the skid loader with forks to put the hogs over the coals. The three of them had killed and cleaned the hogs the day before. They had also got the pit ready and before they left, Kat had started the fire. It took some time but the fire burned down and Mark put the hogs on. The wedding was at three that afternoon and he knew that the hogs would be done by the time of the reception. As he was waiting, he laid down and took a nap. He woke up at one and started getting dressed for people would start arriving soon. But first the three S’s; shit, shower, and shave. Sure, enough as soon as he finished getting dressed, the doorbell rang. It was Tim and Evan. As it got closer to three, Mark was getting nervous like almost every other man on his wedding day. Finally, he heard the ladies arrive for they had taken Kat’s truck and he knew that truck’s sound anywhere. Kat came out to do a final check on everything and say hi to Brandon and his family. To say that he and his family were impressed was an understatement. His parents hadn’t really believed him when he told them about Kat. Finally meeting her in person, they could see that their son’s de***********ion of her didn’t do her justice. Brandon was impressed because this was the first time, he had seen Kat outside of school and she was smoking hot. Not only that but she also was allowing her true personality show and he found himself being drawn to her like a moth to the flames.
At three o’clock sharp the music started. Everyone gasped when Emily finally appeared. Her gown appeared to be made of emeralds and her wavy hair looked to be made of molten gold and fire that had been spun into fine silk. She had just enough make-up on to highlight her checks, eyes, and lips. As Emily walked down the aisle a cool breeze blew through. Both Emily and Mark smiled at this for it seemed that Susie, Mark’s parents, and Emily’s first fiancé had arrived. In Emily’s eyes, she could see the four of them standing near the front and in her mind, she thanked them for coming. For the first time she heard Mark’s parents speak to her, “We wouldn’t miss this for the world dear.” Emily shed a single tear, she wished that her parents were only a tenth as good as Mark’s parents had been. Mark hadn’t missed the tear and he knew what had caused it for he also seen his parents, his sister, and a very handsome black man arrive. He was confused a bit but figured that he would ask later, maybe. The wedding went off without a hitch, but the reception was a different matter. As the reception was starting, an expensive car pulled in the drive and Emily froze when she seen it. Mark and Kat were both confused but that didn’t last long. Two people got out of the back seats. The man had short grey hair and the woman had long hair that was turning grey but still had some red in it. The man was also a bit drunk. Mark looked at Emi,
“What’s wrong honey? You know these people?” Emily didn’t answer but her face showed her anger building fast. Mark shook her arm. “Emi, you know them?”
“Yes, I know them, all too well.” growled Emi in her frigid tone. Mark and Kat were now concerned hearing Emi’s tone. “They are my fucking parents.” Mark held Emi’s hand as her parents approached. “Hello mother, father. What are you doing here?”
“We’re here to see our daughter get married but I see that she couldn’t even wait for us even through we’ve been calling” her mother said.
“So, this is the loser that your head over heels for?” her father added in a condescending tone. “You should have been married in a proper church to a proper catholic lad instead of this hick wedding and to this hick. He doesn’t look bright enough to dump the water out a boot with the directions on the heel.”
By now everyone was staring at Emi’s parents. They were too stunned to say anything. Everyone was stunned but Kat. Once again, she proved to have ice water flowing through her veins. She stepped in front of Mark and Emily
“What the fuck are you two idiots doing here. I know that neither of you were invited because Mom knew how you would act. Why don’t you two get the bloody hell out of here before I rip both of you to pieces.”
“Mom? Emily, I always knew you were a whore!” her mother spit out. Kat had enough of this and punched Emily’s mother hard breaking her nose and putting her on her ass.
“Quiet your mouth you fucking cunt. Technically she’s my step-mom and I’ve killed once already to protect MY MOM and I’m not afraid to do it again. I highly doubt this beautiful, bright, and caring woman could be the product of you two bums. I’m betting someone got in before your husband did. And if your husband goes for that gun tucked into his pants, I’ll kill him where he stands.” With this Kat produced her gun that she always carried, and while not pointing it at Emily’s father, made it clear that she could very quickly. “Now I’m going to tell you two exactly what you will do. You both will kneel in front of MY MOM and DAD. You WILL apologize for your idiotic behavior. You will then leave and never attempt to contact any of us ever again.” Kat’s voice was now so cold that the temperature seemed to drop by twenty degrees and everyone was now staring at her like she was some mythical creature that had come to life. “DO IT NOW!” Kat snapped while not using anymore muscles then was absolutely necessary to talk.
Emily’s parents jumped and the blood drained from their faces. They quicky did exactly what Kat had told them to for neither of them had ever encountered someone as cold and threatening as her, and they had met: gangers, organized crime members, IRA bombers, and serial killers. Never had anyone they ever met given off the vibes that Kat did. She was a very cold-blooded killer should she choose to be. Kat kept her gun out until Emily’s parents drove off. Storing it away in her dress, she looked at everyone else;
Emily came up and looked right into Kat’s eyes;
“Katelynn, I’ve never ever seen someone so cold and calm as you. I’ve also never seen my parents that afraid of anyone ever. Just to let you know” Emily took a deep breath and closed her eyes “I’m very proud of you and I’m proud that you are my daughter.”
Kat broke down in tears and jumped into Emily’s arms, dress be damned.
“I LOVE YOU MOM!” screamed Kat while crying her eyes out. There wasn’t a dry eye present while Kat and Emily embraced each other. Finally, Emily whispered quietly to Kat,
“We’re going to mess up our make-up if we keep this up.” Looking at each other Kat and Emily broke out in laughter. They laughed so hard that their sides cramped. Suddenly Kat looked at everyone and stood up,
“Hey, we’re supposed to be having a PARTY!” With that she bounced over and turned the music on. After the mandatory wedding dances, Kat put on a slow dance song and went over to Brandon. “Would you dance with me please?” Kat asked nervously. It was a bit funny actually, a young lady that could stare death in the face and win was extremely nervous when it came to love. Although Brandon wasn’t sure what to do, he took hold of one of Kat’s hands and they started to dance. They danced very single one of the remaining songs together. Eventually, everyone else stopped dancing to watch Kat and Brandon dance. Mark and Emi went up and introduced themselves to Brandon’s parents. After the introductions, the four of them turned to watch Kat and Brandon dance. “You know something Emi” said Mark “Those two really do make a cute couple.” Brandon’s parents had to agree with Mark.
After a couple of hours, the party was winding down. All the food had been eaten and everyone was happy but tired. Kat and Brandon were all but inseparable by the end of the party and everyone thought that they made a lovely couple.
After the wedding, Mark and Emily quickly settled into their married life. Mark never asked Emily who the fourth ghost was at the wedding, figuring that she would tell him if or when she was ready. They didn’t bother to go on a honeymoon because neither one really cared and neither really had the time. Kat and Brandon started dating officially and both were really happy. During Thanksgiving Kat ate both with her family and with Brandon’s family. Before Kat went over to Brandon’s house for the first time; Mark sat Brandon down and explained things to him. Basically, if he ever hurt Kat, Mark would hunt him down and kill him. After Mark’s talk, Brandon was terrified and it didn’t get any better when Kat told Brandon a piece of her Dad’s history.
Emily got to go deer hunting for her first time that fall and was rewarded with a nice buck which Kat mounted on the living room wall for her. Joining the many deer that her and Mark had mounted over the years. Emily would also hunt for squirrels, rabbits, and raccoons. On Black Friday Emily and Kat went shopping and had a wonderful time. They went everywhere and did everything they could. Kat made sure that she had gotten something nice for Brandon in addition to her regular shopping. Before Emily, Mark never really got into the holidays and never could wait until they were over. Now he felt much more like he did before his parents had died.
Two weeks before Christmas, Kat and a group of her friends from school decided to go to a big Christmas concert. Emily was a bit jealous because she had wanted to go as well, but at the last minute, had to go to work to cover for one of the other doctors who had gotten really sick from bad seafood. She had wanted to go because Mark was away on a business trip and wasn’t due back until Sunday. Plus, she liked Christmas music. Kat and Emi hadn’t seen each other that afternoon because Emi had gone to work before Kat got home from school. Of course, they texted each other and Kat sent Emi pictures of the concert. She also told her when they left and were one their way home. Kat was very mature for a fifteen-year-old girl and Emi was glad for that because she didn’t know anything about raising a teen.
It was almost midnight, and Emily was looking forward to going home. It had been a very long day. Then a call came in, four teens had been in a serious traffic accident. Two of them were dead on the scene. The other two were on their way with life threatening injuries. The driver of the vehicle that hit them head-on walked away without a scratch. He was arrested for DUI and at least two counts of manslaughter. Emily rushed to make sure that everything was ready. When the teens got there, Emily’s blood froze, one of the teens was Kat. Emily now went on autopilot, driven not only by her Navy training but also her rapidly developing motherly instinct and the fear that she might lose everything. For not only did she now have an adopted daughter but she also held a secret that she wasn’t ready to reveal quite yet. She pushed her way to Kat’s stretcher and instantly could see that Kat most likely wouldn’t survive. Not only had Kat lost a lot of blood but she couldn’t move her legs. One of her arms had a bone coming out of it as well. As Emily started working on her, Kat started talking to her,
“Hi, mom. I’m so sorry for this. I’ve been wanting to visit you at work, just not like this.”
“You’ve nothing to be sorry for Kat.”
“I’m not going to make it will I?”
“You’ll be just fine Kat.”
“Thank you for trying to cheer me up, but we both know that I’m not going to live. Just please make sure that all my parts that can be donated are, and then donate the rest of me to science.”
“Kat shut-up. I’ve seen people live with much worse injuries than you’ve got.”
That was actually a bold face lie on Emily’s part. Kat was hurt really bad but Emily was trying to keep Kat’s sprits up as much as possible. As Kat was rolled into one of the operating rooms, Emily whispered to Kat,
“I’ve got something to tell you but you have to survive for me to tell you, deal Kat?”
“Yes. Mom I need to tell you that I love you. Can you tell Dad that I love him too?” said Kat weakly “Good bye”
“Tell him yourself Kat for you’re NOT going to die on me.” Emi told her “Ok everyone let’s do this” Emi said to the rest of the staff.
“Kat we’re going to put you under now. I love you.”
What followed was by far the most stressful operation of Emily’s life. Kat had numerous internal injuries, a badly broken arm, and a damaged spine; although Emily thought that with work Kat would be able to go back to her normal life. About three hours in, disaster struck. Kat flat lined. Emily, without thinking, vaulted up on top of Kat and started CPR and ordered drugs put into the IV tubes while the paddles were charging.
Kat found herself in a house that was strange but at the same time familiar and she couldn’t figure that out. Walking out of what Kat figured was the kitchen was another teen about her own age.
“Hello Katelynn. How are you?”
“Who the fuck are you and where the bloody hell am I?”
“That’s not a nice way for you to stay hello to your aunt, is it dearie? As to where you are, I’m sure that you can figure that out.”
Kat squinted looking at the teen, “Aunt Susan? Is that really you? If that’s you I guess that I’m really dead then. As to where I am, this looks like the house from some of my Dad’s old pictures.”
“Yep, I’m your aunt Susan, but please just Susie will work, and this is the house that your Dad and I grew up in. As to being dead that’s still up to you.”
“What do you mean “up to me” and why would my imagination give me a choice?” asked Kat warily
“That’s just what I mean. Whether you live or die at this point is up to you. But before you decide I can show you want will happen both ways. As for your imagination, you actually think this is just your imagination.”
“What’s there to decide let me out of here. I’ve got a life to live and yes you’re just a figment of my imagination.”
“One I’m not “just a figment of your imagination.” And two, don’t you want to know what will happen? To know if you want to suffer the pain that you’ll endure in your life if you decide to live. Because if you decide to die now then you could avoid all the pain and suffering that’s in your future.”
“No, I don’t want to know my future.” Snapped Kat “I want to go back and live my life, suffer the pain, celebrate life, and be with MY family. I’m not a fucking coward like you were!”
“Our family, Katelynn. Our family.”
“MY family. You abandoned my Dad after he tried his best to protect you. I mean he took beatings for you. He even killed to protect you. He had to fight by himself, because you had chickened out, to get sole custody of me when I was young. NOW LET GO OF ME!”
“Very well, your Dad was just as stubborn.”
Kat saw a bright light coming from the entry door and raced toward it. She entered the light and she was back. Her heart started beating again. For four minutes, Kat had been dead. To say Emily was relieved would be an understatement. She had almost lost her daughter. Emily and her team kept working frantically to keep Kat stable; for an hour later Kat flat-lined again.
“Ah shit, you again?”
“Well, hello to you too, Katelynn.”
“It’s Kat. Why don’t we just skip the bull and let me go back now?”
“Nope, there’s some other people here that you need to meet.” And Susie then pointed behind her.
Kat looked and an older couple walked up and stood beside Susie. Kat was confused for a second then she figured out who the couple was. It wasn’t too hard being that her Dad had finally started putting out some pictures from his childhood and the fact that the man looked very similar to her Dad.
“Grandma? Grandpa?” Kat asked.
“Yes. Hello Kat. We wish that we could be meeting up better circumstances.”
“That’s ok. I was just leaving. I hope that I don’t have to see any of you for a long time yet.”
“Now hold on Kat” said her grandpa “Who said that you could leave yet?”
“I did” growled Kat “Now where’s that damn door?” Kat looked and the door that she went out was gone now. “Hey whiskey tango foxtrot. What’s going on here?”
“It’s simple Kat, you can’t leave” stated Susie.
“Fuck you! I’m going to leave whether you like it or not and go back home” snapped Kat. With that she seized ahold of a chair and with all her might threw it out a window. She then jumped into the light coming through the broken window.
Once again Kat’s heart started to beat and Emily was close to exhaustion. Twice now she had saved her daughter from dying. Not only that but Emily was coming up on being awake for 24 hours. At least now it was looking like Kat was out of the woods. Her vital signs were now stable and the worst of the damage had been either repaired or had been stabilized so that specialist could go back in later and fix things once Kat had recovered some.
Finally, after six hours, Emily was finished. Kat was alive and stable but still critical. She would be able to rest and once she was strong enough, she would have more surgery to work on her back so that she wouldn’t be paralyzed. There was just one more thing for Emily to do. She had been told that Mark had been able to get an earlier flight and was in the waiting room with Brandon and his parents. Emily walked out into the room with Kat’s blood all over her, but she wore a tired smile.
When Mark seen her, he broke down in tears and raced to hug Emily. Her smile had told him all that he needed to know. His only daughter, the girl that had given him the strength to keep from committing suicide for the last fifteen years and was responsible for him and Emily getting together was alive. At that moment he didn’t care about the details. Brandon also ran over and hugged Emily.
“How bad is she Emily?” asked Brandon
“She’s going to be in the hospital for a while. She will have to have a specialist operate on her spine to keep her from becoming paralyzed. She’s also going to need a lot of physical therapy, especially for her arm and back, but she hopefully will be good as new in about six months.”
“Thank God” whispered Brandon as he began to pray again.
Mark whispered to Emily, “He’s been praying since before I came in. I know his parents were concerned that if Kat didn’t make it that he would take his own life.”
“Mark honey, Kat did die. Twice for a total of almost seven minutes. Thankfully she’s a very tough and stubborn young lady.”
“And thankfully she had the best surgeon in the world to operate on her.”
Emily blushed crimson hearing that. She loved Mark dearly and she also loved Kat. They were so much more than a family to her. They had given her a reason to start living again, not just surviving as she had been. She was now almost ready to fall asleep standing up for the adrenaline that had been keeping her going was wearing off. Mark gently picked her up and carried her out to his truck with help from Brandon’s dad. Emily was asleep before Mark had taken two steps. Brandon was determined to stick around until Kat woke up despite his mom trying to talk him out of it. Eventually his mom gave in and went home.
It was three days before Kat would wake up. As he had promised, Brandon had stayed by her side the entire time. Mark and Emily would have but they both had to work and they had to take care of the farm. Mark did stop by every day on his way home from work and Emily stopped in when she wasn’t working on the farm or in the hospital. Once Kat woke up, Cindy stopped by with her kids and this made Kat light up. She adored those two kids. Kat of course was deeply touched by Brandon’s devotion to her and realized that she was falling madly in love with him. It took till Emily and Mark came in for Kat to learn that all three of her friends, that were in the car with her, had died while the drunk that hit them was able to walk away without a scratch. Kat was able to give an extremely detailed account of what happened to the cops and from them she learned that the drunk would most likely be in prison for the rest of his life for he had a number of DUIs on his record and now he had killed three teens.
About a week after the accident and Kat went back into surgery. This time Emily was just an observer. This was something that was usually frowned on but she had used her position and called a favor that the performing surgeon owed her to get herself into the operating room. The surgery started out going really well, but then Kat had a bad reaction to one of the medications and she flatlined again. All Emily could do was to stand there in absolute terror, her daughter was dying for a third time and this time she couldn’t do anything about it.
“Seriously Susie we have to quit meeting like this.” Kat said realizing where she was.
“Don’t worry you’ll be sent back to your meat bag soon, but first you WILL sit down and listen to what we have to tell you.”
Kat noticed that there was three other people in the room now. Her grandparents and a very handsome black man in a marine uniform. “Whatever you say, Susie.” Said Kat dryly as she sat down. “But first a question, who’s the super-hot guy?”
Susie smiled “I’ll get there, no need to get your panties in a bunch.” The other three people just smiled.
“Hold on here Susie, if you’re going to try and tell me my future again, I still don’t want to know. I want to be able to live my life to the fullest and not knowing what’s going to happen next will encourage me to live every day like it’s my last.”
The four dead people in the room smiled. “That’s a very good attitude to have my dear.” Said the Marine. “Now I suppose that I should stop being rude and introduce myself. I’m Major Dewayne Richardson, and I was Emily’s first fiancé.” Kat took a step back and paled a bit. He then told Kat how he and Emily met and got together. He also told her of his death.
“Wow, no wonder why Emily was so traumatized by your death.” Dewayne nodded.
“I’m so glad that you two became friends, you protected her, and you got her together with your Dad; Katelynn. Emily wouldn’t have survived another suicide attempt, and you were right when you told her your dad’s story that day. My death’s anniversary was coming up and she was fated to succeed in killing herself. In fact, she was planning on killing herself that evening. For saving her life I can only say thank you and if you ever need help or advice all you have to do is think of me and I’ll be there.”
Susie then spoke up, “I’ve got the same deal with Emily. Now Kat, I have something very important to tell you so be quiet and listen carefully. The foster parents that took your Dad and I in were actually our aunt and uncle. That’s right, our aunt and uncle beat us regularly, forced your Dad to rape and impregnate me, and then sold the videos of us to other perverts. That also means that your Dad killed the last of our family on your grandfather’s side to protect me. Problem was that some of our aunt’s siblings started hunting me for revenge. Your dad caught and killed them too when they attacked me. Yep, your Dad has killed five people to protect me. After this, we were split up by the state and I was so traumatized that I was having nightmares every single night. Eventually I couldn’t take it anymore. I’m truly sorry that I wasn’t there for your Dad, in person, but I was always by his side in spirit. Tell your Mom and Dad what we have told you and this will prove that this isn’t just your imagination. We just ask you to choose the moment very carefully.”
Kat was speechless, she knew her Dad hadn’t told her everything but never in a million years did she imagine that his past was this bad. Kat collapsed and started crying. She didn’t even know how long that she cried. Her grandparents came up and sat down next to her to comfort her. For this Kat was extremely grateful for she was overwhelmed by all the information, that she had learned about her Mom and Dad. Once Kat finally finished crying Dewayne came up to her:
“Sweetie it’s time for you to return to the land of the living.”
“Can I at least say good bye to all of you?”
Kat went around, gave everyone hugs and apologized to Susie for how she had treated her. Susie just brushed it off for she was not only use to Kat’s temper for it was just like her Dad’s, but also knew just how much stress Kat had been under. Finally, there was a bright light and Kat stepped into it.
Back in the OR Kat’s heart started beating once again and everyone breathed a sigh of relief. Emily was so stressed that she had gotten sick and had to leave. Eventually the surgeon finished his work on Kat’s back. She would be able to walk and possibly run, eventually. He went out to give the news to Mark, Emily, and Brandon.
When Kat woke up, she was very nervous. Not about herself for she could now feel and wiggle her toes again but about the information that she had learned about the Mom and Dad. It was almost a week later when she finally made her decision. That evening when her Mom and Dad came in to see her, she would tell them. When they came in that evening, Kat was much calmer then she had been since her last surgery.
“Kat, are you ok?” asked Emi.
“Yep, I finally made the decision today that I’ve been wrestling with for the last week. Mom, Dad we really need to talk, please.”
Mark and Emily nodded, sat down, and waited for Kat to continue. They didn’t want to rush her.
“During the time that my heart stopped I met some people. Mom, I met Dewayne. Dad, I met your Mom, Dad, and sister.” Emily’s face went pale, she hadn’t heard Dewayne’s name in years and hadn’t spoken it since he had died. Mark seen Emi’s change, but waited for Kat to continue. “Mom; Dewayne told me of how you two met and how he died. Dad; Susie told me of your first foster parents were actually your aunt and uncle and how you continued to protect her after you had killed them.” Mark’s face now matched Emily’s. They knew that it was time to tell each other all their dark secrets. Emily wasn’t really surprised that Mark had killed three more people to protect his sister, and Mark wasn’t surprised with the revelation of Emily’s first fiancé. They were all surprised at how well they reacted to each other’s secrets and all three were relieved that they didn’t have to hide their secrets from each other.
Finally, it was Christmas morning. Emily, Mark, and Brandon came to the hospital with all the presents that would have been opened that morning at Kat’s house, plus Brandon brought the gifts that he had gotten her that he planned to give her when she came over to his house. They all helped Kat open her gifts on account of the fact that she couldn’t use her left arm at the moment. Most of the presents were clothes or gift cards while Brandon had gotten Kat a very nice necklace that held a sapphire that just happened to match Kat’s eyes. The best gift of the morning though was given by Emily. After all the other gifts had been opened, she stood up and went to close the door. Turning around to a confused crowd she said:
“Mark, Kat this last gift is for you two.” Emily took off the jacket that she had been wearing and lifted her shirt to reveal a ribbon tied into a bow around her belly. Mark and Kat’s eyes lit up after a second.
“OH MY GOD, YOU’RE PREGNET?” they asked in unison. Emily just nodded. Mark was on his feet in a millisecond and was hugging Emily. Emily then moved over so that she could hug Kat. She also gave Brandon a hug as well.
“Congrats y’all” said Brandon
“Mom, how long have you known? I’m assuming that’s the news that I had to survive to hear.”
“Yes, that’s the news. I’ve suspected since mid-November and I confirmed it with my ob-gyn just after your second surgery. I figured that it was so close to Christmas that the announcement would make the prefect Christmas gift. I’m just so glad that you’re here to hear it, Katelynn.”
Pandemonium reigned supreme for almost an hour. Kat and Emily were talking nonstop. As they were winding down, Cindy came in with the kids. Emily then told them and the pandemonium picked right back up again. After another almost two hours things were finally calming down. Mark and Brandon hadn’t been able to get more than a dozen words in during the previous three hours, but neither could have been happier.
Over the following months, Kat mostly recovered ahead of schedule. Brandon and her got closer and Emily took Kat to get her on birth control. Emily kept up on her appointments and Mark and her decided that they wanted to be surprised with their child’s gender. This of course drove Kat nuts but her parents wouldn’t budge. Emily continued to work at the hospital and on the farm, at least as much as her bun in the oven would allow her to. Mark supported this for he knew that it would help keep Emily and the kid healthy. When Kat got home from the hospital, she and Emily started remodeling one of the spare bedrooms for the kid.
The three of them went to Emily’s first ultrasound and the results of threw all their plans out the window. For the ultrasound showed triplets. At this Mark fainted, and the girls were slack jawed. Emily had no family history of multiple births that she knew of. When they got home it was obvious that they would have to do a major rethink. It was Kat that came up with the solution. She could move her bedroom down to the basement so each of the triplets could have their own room within earshot of Emily and Mark. So, the next weekend the three of them started working on the basement. Kat was able to design her new room, bathroom, and walk-in closet. During this time another change in the family happened, Kat got her driver’s license much to Mark’s relief and dread. Granted now he didn’t need to chauffer her around, but now she could also sneak off on her own.
At seven months Emily got the depressing news that she had been expecting and dreading; no more vaginal intercourse until after the kids were born. Mark took this in stride through, after all what’s a few months without intercourse when three new lives would be brought into the world. After talking about it, Mark and Emily decided that Mark should get a vasectomy before the kids were born so that when Emily was physically ready to get laid again all the little swimmers would be out of Mark’s cum. Emily of course would make sure that Mark had every last swimmer out of his cum. Just because Emily couldn’t have use of her vagina at the moment didn’t mean that she couldn’t keep his cock in shape with other parts of her anatomy. Plus, side was that Emily had amazing cock-cucking skills. After all Mark had just wanted one kid while Emily had wanted two, now they were having three.
Two and a half months later the four of them were getting ready to go early morning fishing. By this time Kat and Brandon were inseparable and he liked to go fishing with Kat and her family. Emily had problems getting comfortable in her seat when she felt like she had peed herself (she was wearing her bikini bottom and one of Mark’s t-shirts for it was forecasted to be a hot day and she might want to go for a dip). Looking down, she knew what happened, her water had broken. The other three had just came out of the house with the food for the day.
“Hey guys, we got a problem.”
“What’s that, Mrs. Schneider?” This was what Brandon always called her and after battling him, Emily gave up and let him call her that.
“I don’t how to tell you this but my water just broke.”
Mark just smiled, “Kat can you help me get the boat unhooked and back in the barn please?”
“What’s this Dad, you’re not going to go into a panic like other dads?”
“Why panic kiddo, Emily’s going to probably be in labor a while before she gives birth and it won’t take but a couple of minutes to get the boat put away. After all, who knows what time we’ll get home. Speaking of that, do you want to ride with us or drive yourself?”
“Um…” looking at Brandon “We’ll ride with you. After all I can bring your truck back home.”
“Well then let’s get going then.”
Mark and Kat got the boat put back and then they all went to the hospital. Mark made sure to drive carefully for it was four in the morning and there was plenty of deer around. This was defiantly not the time to hit a deer. Driving to the hospital, Emily called Cindy to tell her what was going on for Cindy had given Emily very strict orders to call her when she went into labor; no matter what time it was. Of the four in the truck, Brandon actually was the most nervous.
“To see you like that honey, you would think that I was the one that was about to give birth” teased Kat.
“Shut up Kat, I’ve never closely known anyone who gave birth, plus I don’t have your nerves of steel.”
“Well Dad’s not as nervous as you are.” Kat couldn’t stop herself.
“Ya, well he’s been through this before and his nerves I think, are harder than yours. Can you please stop teasing me? I’m nervous enough as it is.”
Arriving at the hospital, Mark dropped Brandon and the girls off at the entrance and went to park the truck. Once he got in, he found Brandon in the waiting room.
“I’m not family so they wouldn’t let me in.”
“Come on Brandon, I’ll get you in and make sure to call your parents as well.”
With that Mark took Brandon and true to his word got him past the nurses and into Emily’s room. Emily didn’t mind the fact that Brandon would see her private parts. For one she was a doctor after all. Two she knew that Brandon and Kat were sleeping together, Mark knew too for that matter. And the third reason the whole experience would be good for Brandon and Kat to see the entire birthing process. So, Emily put her foot down when a nurse tried to make Kat and Brandon leave. The nurse might have been new but she had heard all about Emily, Mark, and Kat and knew the last thing she wanted to do was to piss them off. Plus, anyone with half a brain knows that it’s never a good thing to argue with a pregnant woman.
The entire experience was a real eye opener to not only Brandon, but Kat as well. Having theoretical knowledge and having firsthand knowledge are two completely different things. They were both surprised by the amount of pain that Emily was going through.
Twelve hours later it was over. Emily had given birth to two boys and a girl. All three were born with blond hair that was shaded red and weighed six pounds six ounces apiece. The girl was named Gretchen and the boys were named David and Mason. Kat, Brandon, and Mark went home after they met the triplets. They were tired and being Sunday Kat and Brandon had school, in the morning, but Mark called off work so he could go back to with his wife. After they got home Kat and Brandon left to go back to his house for the night. They usually alternated between the two houses so that they got to spend time with both families. Granted Kat could easily afford to buy her own house, she still stayed with her mom and dad. One was she wasn’t old enough to buy a house, two was she didn’t know where she would end up working, and three she didn’t really know yet what all she wanted in a house. Four, she wasn’t ready to tell Brandon that she was loaded. Kat wanted Brandon to love her for her not her money.
When Mark got back to the hospital the next morning, Emily was already up and was moving around slowly. She had just got done nursing the kids and she had to go bathroom. She was tired but happy. Soon she would be able to move around again and with three kids to take care of she would need to be able to move around too.
“Morning Mark. Good news, I should be able to go home later today after the doctor checks up on me and the kids get their shots. All three would have all their vaccines. Emily had been to a third world country and had seen the damage that not having vaccines could do first hand. She wouldn’t risk that with her kids and she knew that Mark felt the same way.
“Hey, cool. You know honey it really sucked not having you in bed with me last night. I think that was this first night that I spend completely alone in the house in almost ten years.”
“Aww” Emily said as she gave Mark a quick kiss and went into the bathroom. Mark stopped at the kids’ beds and said good morning to them. He then settled down in a chair and opened his laptop to work on his stock trading. That evening Emily and the kids were released to go home, and Brandon and Kat were waiting for them with dinner almost cooked and the table already set. Emily and Mark took the kids back and laid them down in their cribs. There would be no co-sleeping in this house. The kids would get use to their own beds right off the bat. Emily went to carefully take a shower with Mark’s help before dinner. She was grimy and smelly and wanted to feel better before eating.
Kat and Brandon had cooked an Italian meal together. When they first met, Brandon had trouble boiling water and now with Kat’s encouragement and teaching, he was helping her fix a fancy Italian dinner. He was even starting to think of making cooking his career. His parents never did much cooking and when Kat spent time at his house, she did the cooking so that she wouldn’t have to eat out all the time.
Dinner was excellent as always. Living on a farm and growing almost all their own food definitely helped with the quality of food. After dinner, Mark worked on cleaning up for one of his newest bosses was complaining and soon all three would be going at it. Kat and Emily took care of the kids. Kat took care of the bottle, while Emily gave the other two a tit each to suck at. She would rotate between the kids so that they all got breast milk and formula.
As time went on Brandon pretty much moved in with Kat. He and his parents were starting to fight because while he wanted to be a chef and open his own restaurant, they wanted him to go to college and become a lawyer like them. Kat had done nothing but encourage him to make his own path. Mark and Emily didn’t mind having Brandon in the house as long as he helped out on the farm and treated Kat with the upmost respect.
Emily decided to take six months off work to take care of the kids. She and Mark had their first serious argument over how they would care for the kids. Since Emily had a serious education, which Mark didn’t, and she was saving people’s lives every day; he insisted that she be the one to go to work and he would stay home with the kids and work the farm. While Emily wanted to be a full-time mom and let Mark be the man of the house and earn the money. Eventually Emily relented, after all she was the one with a college education and the safer occupation. She also made a difference in people’s lives every day, something which Mark pointed out and when Kat weighed in on Mark’s side, well that settled things. Plus, there was a few jobs on the farm which Emily wasn’t strong enough to do by herself and she knew it. One more thing for them to consider was that Kat would be leaving in a couple of years to go to college.
One day when Mark got home, the house was dead quiet. This was something that he wasn’t use to. Normally the house was full of the sounds of life and personally he liked it like that. He walked into the living room and his jaw hit the floor. Standing there was his wife wearing a white teddy that he had never seen before, and with her hair done up. Usually she kept her hair straight and down, but today, at Kat’s suggestion, she had put a wave in it and wore it up. Under the teddy, Mark could just make out the white G-string that Emily was wearing. This was also odd for her for she usually wore either boy shorts or cotton bikini cut briefs.
“See anything you like?” asked Emily in her rarely used sultry voice. In addition, she also added just a touch of an Irish accent. This absolutely drove Mark crazy with lust; for Emily had discovered long ago that Mark had a thing for her Irish accent. He just stood there dazed and his eyes were wide for he was making sure that he took everything in and committed it to long term memory. Emily started walking toward him making sure that her hips swayed a bit. Mark still hadn’t said anything, his mind still wasn’t working; after all it’s hard for a guy’s mind to work went all his blood is being diverted south. Emily had also started prancing around the room making sure to give Mark a view of her from every direction. Eventually Emily got to him and she started running her hands over Mark’s chest and stomach. She could see that Mark was hard and could guess at why he hadn’t said anything yet. Emily loved this for she had all the power and could do anything that she wanted. Right now, all she wanted was to get her brains fucked out by her personal stud. “Don’t worry about the kids darling, Kat and Brandon are watching them over at his house. His parents are out of town this week.” Mark was still quiet but Emily could almost feel his eyes tracing every curve of her body and she could feel the increase of heat coming off of Mark’s body. “Why don’t you get a quick shower and then show me who owns me?” Emily softly whispered in his ear while knowing what this would do.
Just as she predicted, Mark snapped back to reality. “” Show you who owns you?” I can do that without a shower, bitch” growled Mark. He picked her up and slammed her into the wall causing Emily to moan, this is just what she wanted. She felt Mark reach down to let his monster loose. Soon it was rubbing Emily’s soaking wet lips, no foreplay needed today. She went to move her G-string out of the way and Mark slapped her across the check. Looking into his eyes, Emily seen a look that she had never seen in Mark before, shear unbridled lust. Chills went through Emily, causing her nipples and clit to get even harder yet, despite the fact that she was starting to sweat a bit. Mark pretty much ripped Emily’s G-string off and she knew that nothing she did could stop him now and truth be told she didn’t want to stop him. In one massive thrust, Mark was buried completely inside her and was pounding her like a jackhammer. Within seconds, Emily was cumming buckets and moaning like she had never moaned before while Mark never once even slowed down for her. This went on for what Emily could have sworn was hours. She had so many orgasms that she lost count, something that usually didn’t happen. Eventually she was reduced to a semi-comatose pile of skin and bone that was begging Mark to cum for her. Mark however had different plans. He kept fucking her brains out, even though by this time she was shaking like a leaf in a tornado. She wanted to be owned so he was going to prove to her once and for all who “owned” her. Finally, Mark could feel his balls tighten up and the orgasm that he had, put all the other ones that he had to shame. It started in his toes and traveled all the way up to the top of his head. After blasting the inside of his wife’s hot cunt with eight massive shots of hot cum, his eyes started to roll back into his head. Slowly he fell to the floor barely able to hold onto Emily who was in no position to do anything either. Hitting the floor, they both passed out with Mark slipping out of Emily and cum flooding out of Emily and onto Mark and the floor.
Twenty minutes later, Mark woke up. His leg was asleep and all his muscles were protesting. Looking at Emily, he almost laughed out loud. To say that she was a wreck was a serious understatement. Her hair was now a tangled mess, both tits were hanging out of her teddy, she had red marks on her neck, and her legs and pussy were sticky with their combined juices. As gently as he could, Mark untangled himself from her and picked her up off the floor. He carried her to their bed and laid her down so she could sleep comfortably while he went to get a shower. After his shower, Emily was still sleeping and now she had started to snore lightly. Mark smiled and throwing on a pair of shorts went out to fix them some supper. Looking at his phone, he seen that Kat had texted him,
“Did you enjoy mom’s surprise?” Mark smiled and as a reply snuck back into the bedroom and took a picture of Emily lying in bed, snoring. Of course, she had a cover over her so nothing naughty was showing, but it clearing showed Emily’s messed up hair and red marks on her neck. Mark hit send, smiling to himself. The reply was quick;
“OMG dad, what the fuck did you do to her?!?!”
“Just that. I fucked her brains out of course.”
“DAD!!! I didn’t want to know that!”
“Then you shouldn’t have asked. How are the kids doing?” Kat sent back a picture of the kids all sleeping in their pack-in-play. Mark smiled wider as he saved that pic on his phone. He had a loving family and again he swore that he would never take that for granted. As Mark was putting the finishing touches on dinner, Emily came out into the kitchen walking carefully and wearing a glazed look on her face. “You, ok?” asked Mark now a bit concerned.
“I just had my brains fucked out by the man I love more than life itself, what do you think?” said Emily with a tired smile.
Finally, it was the time that Emily had been half dreading, half looking forward to. It was time to go back to work. Three weeks before, Mark had put his two-week notice in. His boss was sad to see him leave but understood. He made it clear to Mark that if he ever wanted to come back to work, all he had to do was ask. Emily’s first day back was one of the longest in her life. Not only was she kept constantly busy, but she found that she was missing her family immensely. For the first time in her life, she wished that she wasn’t a doctor. Finally, her shift was over and Mark had dinner waiting for her when she got home. Since Emily was breast-feeding the triplets, she had with her the milk that she had pumped during the day and Mark put it in the fridge for her. After dinner, Mark helped her get undressed and get a hot, relaxing shower. After Emily got out of the shower, Mark started the laundry and they went to bed for it was one AM after all.
This generally set up the pattern for Mark and Emily. Emily would go to work while Mark would not only keep the farm running but also take care of the kids with decreasing help from Kat. She and Brandon were working on making sure that their own lives would get off to a good start. Kat was accepted to MIT for engineering and Brandon was extremely supportive of her. All he wanted was for Kat to be happy in life. Brandon in the meantime had gotten a job at one of the fanciest restaurants in town and quickly impressed the head chef/owner who took him under his wing.
All three kids were started crawling early and it was obvious that Gretchen was the natural leader of the three of them, while the other two seemed to have more curiosity about their surroundings. All three of the kids were also large for their age which surprised no one. For even though they had been born a bit small, they were growing quickly.
On Mark and Emily’s two-year anniversary, it was time to give Cindy the paperwork for Tekla’s trust fund. Cindy and Emily had gotten even closer after she had married Mark and had kids. Often Cindy would help take care of the kids and Evan and Tekla had a blast playing with them.
The following spring was a time for another great upheaval for Mark and Emily, Kat and Brandon were graduating high school. Kat had earned valedictorian and had sent an invitation to her biological mother and grandparents for her graduation and open house. Brandon had just earned a spot about midway in the class but neither he nor Kat cared. After all Brandon wasn’t going to college although he did sign up to take business classes at the local community college so that he could run his own restaurant one day. To everyone’s surprise Kat’s real mother and grandparents did actually show up and were surprisingly civil toward everyone. For Kat’s speech she talked about life’s many trials and how they could make you stronger by reminding you what was really important in life and what wasn’t. She also touched on the need for her fellow graduating students to not follow their dreams in life but to follow the money. For the vast majority of people their dreams were outside their abilities no matter what they did so it was worthless to chase after something that couldn’t happen anyway. Where if they followed the money, they could at least support themselves and their families. Kat knew that her advice was like a bucket of ice-cold water in her fellow student’s faces and that many wouldn’t take that her advice to heart. She did however. She knew that she could be a world-famous detective with her people reading skills, but knew that might attract the wrong kind of attention to her. Since she was also good with science and building things, she decided to go into robotic engineering.
During Kat’s open house, she couldn’t help but to rub her mother’s face in the face that while Kat was very successful and had a loving family, her mother was still living with her parents and unable to find decent work. Her mother was rendered speechless when Kat told her that she was already getting job offers for when she graduated from MIT and that Kat wouldn’t have to have any loans because she had a full ride scholarship even though, she had secretly rejected it. This last part she didn’t tell her mother because the last thing she needed was her mother trying to extort money out of her. Brandon didn’t even know just how loaded Kat was, although he did know that she was well off.
There was another reason that Kat was really happy during her open house and that had to do with the ring that she was now wearing proudly on her left hand. Before the party started, Brandon proposed to her and she gladly accepted providing that they got married before she left for school, and they would wait to have kids until after she graduated and had a job. Brandon happily accepted this and being that he was wanting to own his own restaurant he didn’t care where Kat’s job search took her. Before the party had even started, Brandon and Kat had settled on a date and would start inviting their family during their open house.
Kat and Brandon’s wedding went off without a hitch that August, at the farm, with Evan playing the role of best man while Tekla was the maid of honor. Gretchen was a flower girl while David and Mason split the role of ring bearer. All of Kat’s and Brandon’s friends and family showed up. Even her real mother and grandparents. Her mother had even begged Kat to forgive her for all the things that she had done to Kat over the years.
“I forgave you a long time ago mother.”
“Thank you, Katelynn,”
“After all, if you hadn’t been such a bitch then I would have never known what it was like to be part of a loving family. I now have three adorable siblings, real mom and dad who love me more than life itself, and now a husband who loves and supports me in everything I do just like I do for him.” Kat’s mother just cried hearing this for she knew that everything Kat said was true.
Emily cried more that day then she had ever cried before for not only was her daughter getting married, but also her best friend, her mentor in some ways, the biggest reason that Emily and Mark had gotten together in the first place, and quite possibly the only reason that Emily was still alive. For when Kat and Emily first talked about Mark, Emily was really close to committing suicide and was actually planning to do it that evening. This time she doubted that once she started, anything could have stopped it. Instead, Emily was now a mother to three adorable children and a step mom to another. She had a loving husband and a large group of friends. Emily was also part of the inspiration for Evan to start studying to be a pediatrician. Helping to take care of Emily’s kids, Evan found that he rather liked children and the best way he could think to do a job that involved kids was to be a pediatrician.
Kat graduated three years later with her bachelors in robotic engineering and an associate in business management. She started her own business designing and building custom robots for industry. Brandon started his own restaurant while Kat was in college and it quickly became the hardest reservation to get in town. He did always keep one table available for close friends and family. Kat had helped him financially get his business off the ground and within a year Brandon had returned her money to her with interest. This was something that Brandon had insisted on, because he was determined to never take advantage of his wife. Kat’s business took off even faster, after all Brandon had a number of her robots working in his restaurant. Together they had two children, Charles and Mikayla, and were very happy together.
Evan also graduated at the head of his class and was dumb founded when he found out about his trust fund. After all he had a full ride to Harvard Med School. After some considering he turned down the full ride telling them to use it for someone who can’t afford school, he was going to pay his own way through. After eight years he graduated at the head of his class again. He quickly got married, but when she was seven months pregnant, she was killed in a car crash. Evan was devastated. He quit his job and moved back home. Having been through something like this herself, Emily helped pull Evan back from the brink and helped him get in the same hospital that she was in.
Tekla also went into the medical field. However, she became a dentist, because she didn’t want to have to make the life-or-death choices that Emily or Evan had to make on an almost daily basis. She ended up marrying her college roommate, Diana. They adopted two siblings whose parents had died in a car crash and Mark helped to teach to boy how to be a man.
The triplets however would make the biggest mark on the world. The three of them founded a green energy company that could cheaply and quickly make bio-petroleum from simple algae. Not only that but they also had massive investments in nuclear energy as well, concentrating on molten salt breeder reactors. Gretchen was the company’s CEO and Mason and David shared the R&D role. The company quickly became one of the richest in the world and the bane of diehard environmentalist everywhere, for there was now no need to electrify the world’s economy or pave the landscape with solar panels. Their process actually removed far more carbon, from the atmosphere, then was put in by burning the oil produced. The extra carbon was used to make carbon nanotubes and graphene sheets. After the company had really taken off, Evan came back home and everyone had been devastated by his loss. None more than Gretchen, for she had harbored a secret crush on him for years and seeing him hurt that bad almost killed her. After Evan had returned from losing his wife and unborn child, Gretchen and him started dating and two years later were married. They would have one child after Gretchen mis-carried their first. After their child was born, they found out that Gretchen would be incapable of having any more children, but they were still happy.
David would marry as well. His wife was a six-foot bombshell with piercing blue eyes, a wicked sense of humor, and a PhD in bio-chemistry. They would have four kids before calling it quits. Mason meanwhile, the black sheep of the group, would never marry and almost never dated.
Emily and Mark continued to live in the same farmhouse that they always had. When Brandon started his restaurant, he sourced everything he could from Mark and Emily’s farm. Emily would finally quit her trauma surgeon job when the triplets started school. The desire to be around and watch her children grow up was just too great. Instead, she got a teaching jig at the local university, teaching anatomy to want-a-be med students. She quickly developed a reputation for making students throw up during class because she was so graphic with her teaching. Her theory was that if you can’t take it in the classroom then you won’t be any good in the field. Mark stayed at home and worked on the farm. Using some of Kat’s robots and experimenting with various farming techniques, he was able to turn huge profits on the farm. He almost never needed chemicals of any kind, only using them as a last resort. Many other farmers would tour the farm to look at what he was doing. Many universities would also come to observe. Everyone was deeply impressed, not only with his innovative techniques but also with Kat’s robots.
Emily and Mark never did retire from the farm. They would continue to love each other through their entire lives and showed that love to each other almost every day. Finally, when they got to eighty-five, Mark got really sick. The sicker that he got the worse that Emily got as well. The day after their wedding anniversary, they said goodbye and died together, in their bed surrounded by all the people that loved them. The farm went to the triplet’s company who kept up the innovation that Mark had started.
