Will it all be smooth sailing, or will something break them? Will it all end happily ever after?


1. The special people in my life.

"XANDER ALEC! Get your bum out here right now!” I yell as Xander slowly peered out the door of his bedroom with those beautiful blue eyes.

“Y..yes mum?”

“Xander, what is all this mess? I thought I told you to have it all clean before you have James and Tyler over?”

“I’m sorry Mum, I’ll do it right now.. I.. I just forgot..”

“Alright, You better do it quick smart, They’ll be here at 11:30, you’ve got five minutes.. XAVIER, you come out here and help your brother.”

“Buut Muuum, it isn't my mess..” he yells from his room.

“I don’t Care Xavier, get off the xbox, and help your brother now!”

“Okay, okay..”

Xavier, and Xander, my two beautiful twin boys. The only difference they have, is their eye colours. Xavier has a blue eye, and a hazel eye, and Xander has blue eyes. They both have brown hair, although Xavier’s is a little lighter.

They’re so lucky that they don’t look like their father, they actually look like my father, when he was younger.

I thought it was amazing when I found out I was pregnant 6 years ago, and then to find out I was having twins.. Oh my gosh. I was so excited, scared, but excited! The only hard thing about being pregnant was being so young, and having to do it all practically on my own.

My father passed away when I was 17, I never knew who my mother was as she left when I was only a baby, and the boys father was extremely violent.

He beat me several times putting me in hospital. Once he almost killed me when I was pregnant with the boys. That’s when I’d had it! I’d already lost one baby, and that was hard enough.

I was 32 weeks pregnant with our first, and he beat me so bad I was in hospital for four days. My beautiful baby girl Laetitia Ann (Pronounced La-tee-sha), was born alive, but died shortly after as her injuries were so severe.
All I have now is a necklace with her hand and footprints, and a small photo in it, a pink teddy bear given to me from the hospital, and her small earn. Her teddy, earn, and a photograph sit on our lounge shelf watching over myself, and her little brothers.

“Mum, can Leigh come over today too?” Xavier asks giving me a puppy dog face.

How could anyone say no to that?

“Yeah sure baby, I’ll go ring his mum just to make sure its okay with her first okay?”

“Okay! Thanks Mumsie!”

“Hi, Mrs. Hanson?.. yeah Hi, its Xavier’s mum, Delilah… I’m good thanks how are you?.. Good, good.. Yeah, Xavier was just wondering if Leigh would like to come over for a play as Xander has a couple of friends over as well?.. 12:30, perfect. Okay see you then, bye.”

“Xavier, Leigh will be over at half past 12.”

“Thanks mum!”

Just I yelled out to Xavier, there was a knock at the door.

I looked through the peep hole, and got the biggest shock of my life.

It was my older brother Dallas.

Dallas was 23, and had been in the army since he was 18. I hardly ever saw him as he was always away fighting someone else’s war, I never knew where he was, or whether he was even alive, but he loved his job, who was I to stand in his way? He came back to visit whenever he could.

I swung open the door as fast as I could, and started screaming, I ran and jumped on Dallas, and gave him the biggest bear hug. He dropped his bags, and hugged me so hard.

“Hey chicken!” He says into my ear.

“Oh Dallas! I’ve missed you so much!” I replied into his shoulder.

“I’ve missed you too and the boys.. Speaking of which, where are the two monsters?”

“Out the back, eating lunch. Xander has a couple of friends over, and Xavier is waiting for his friend to come.” I say as I climb down of him.

“Come in, Put your stuff in your room, and have some lunch, or have a sleep, your probably jet lagged..” I say thinking he’s probably been on a plane for hours, while we walk into the kitchen.

“Delilah, Settle petal, I’m fine. I’ll go out and see the boys, have some lunch, then we’ll see how I go.. Okay?”

“I’m just so happy your home!” I say as I start buttering some bread

“The boys will be too, go out, I’ll bring lunch out..”

Several seconds later I hear Xavier and Xander Start Yelling

“UNCLE DALLAS!” and the biggest smile comes to my face.

Dallas has been like a father figure for the boys. It’s been good when he has been around because he has taught them so much, and they love him so much.

I finish making sandwiches for Dallas and me, and start walking out the back door, and I see Dallas handing the boys two dog tags just like his, He then says

“Boys, these are for you, they have your names, mine, Mums, Your brothers, poppy’s and Laetitia’s names on them. Then we can always be together no matter what.”

“Thanks Uncle Dallas!” they both say in unison.

Dallas and I sit down eating lunch watching the boys and start to catch up on everything. Where he’s been, how he is, how the boys are going at school, just everything.

I turn to Dallas and say

“How long are you home for?” thinking it was only a couple of days like last time.

“4 weeks..” he says looking at his feet..

“Oh.. Is that all?” I say a bit saddened.

“At least its longer then last time..”

Just as I said that my phone started going off.

I took it out of my pocket and saw it was a text from my friend Casey.


‘Deli! How keen are you for tonight?

You better get your sexy on!

It’s been way too long since we’ve been out!

I haven’t heard from you all day, don’t bail on me!

Don’t forget, dinner first, then drinks, then clubs.

Pick you up at 7:30.

Love ya guts babe!

Casey Xo’


“Shit!” I say as I finished reading the text.

“What’s wrong?” Dallas says looking at me worried.

“I promised Casey that I’d go out with her tonight.. I’ll cancel, Spend some time wit..”

but before I could finish, he cut me of

“Delilah Eden Rhodes, You are not canceling because I’m here. I showed up unexpected. You had plans before me, You’re going. End of story.”

“But Dall..”

“Not buts, GO!”

“Fine, but Tomorrow night, we are going out for dinner. Just you me and the boys!”

“Alright..” he agrees I sigh while watching the boys play with the basket ball trying to shoot it.

I start thinking to myself, I really shouldn’t be going. My brother is never home, and I never see him, I really should cancel, but then again I never go out, and he might just want an early night, alone.

I decide I better text Casey back.

‘Oi, I’m still coming, calm your tits.

I haven’t text you because Dallas showed up home today.

I’ve been hanging out with him.

I almost cancelled.;)

Dallas told me not too though.

So, I will see you at 7:30!

Love ya guts. Deli! Xoxoxox’


As soon as I replied, I got another message.

I open it up, and its From Casey.

Shit she replies fast!

‘Bitch, my tits are calm..

You sure you still want to come?

You haven’t seen Dallas in forever..

I understand if you don’t. Xoxo’


‘I have too.. Dallas making me..

Your mum still good to look after the boys?’


‘Yeah, she said she would happily do it.

You know she loves them like they’re her own grand children! Haha!’


‘Sweet! Alright, see you soon loser, xoxox’


'Yeah, you too toser. Xoxo’


I looked at the time realizing it was already 5:30.

Time had flown.

I decided to go have a quick shower.

I got out a couple of minutes later, turned the straightener on, and stood there in my towel, straightening it, I thought I’d better do my make-up before I got dressed, incase I split it everywhere.

All I did was put a bit of foundation on, eye liner, and a bit of mascara, I was a pretty plane jane kind of girl.

Once I did that, I got dressed into my black mini skirt, and put a nice flowy blue and white singlet on over top.

Just as I finished up, I heard the front door slam shut, and then the boys laughing and yelling out “Casey, stoooop!” as she must have been chasing the boys around the kitchen table being the ‘tickle monster’.

They hated it so much, that they loved it.

All of a sudden, my bedroom door flew open, and in runs Xavier, and Xander, followed by Casey, they all stop, running into the back of each other when they realize that I’m standing in my walk in rob doorway watching them.

”Casey Johnston, will you stop chasing my boys around my house? One day they will be bigger then you, and you wont be able to chase them around any more, and they’ll get you back.” I say with the most serious face I could do.

Casey stands up straight and then starts bursting out laughing.

The boys turn around looking at her and then start laughing as well.

That was it, I couldn’t hold it in any longer, I started cracking up as well.

We were all in hysterics when Dallas walked in, and just stares at up like we’re crazy people.

“What the hell are use all laughing at?”

“Oh nothing Dallas.” I trying to say in between laughing.

“Alright, Time to go Deli!” she says while looking down at her watch.

Just as she said that, there was a knock at the door, I walk out, open in up to see Mrs. Johnston standing there.

“Hello Mrs. Johnston. How are you?” I say giving her a kiss and a hug.

“I’m Good thanks Delilah, How are you?”

“I’m good, Come in, come in.” I say letting her in.

“Where are my two favorite boys?” She says as Xavier and Xander coming running out of my room followed by Casey. Mrs. Johnston squats down to their size, and wraps her arms around them.

“Hello my two beautiful boys, How are you?”

“Good Granny Johnston.” They reply at the same time.

“Alright, Deli, we really have to go.. Like now, Otherwise we’ll miss dinner reservation, and I’m starving..” I bend over kissing the boys on the forehead while still in Mrs. Johnston’s arms, saying goodbye I yell out to Dallas,

“Don’t wait up Dallas!”

“Wasn’t planning on it…” he yelled back.

"Good brother he is" I say laughing as I walk out the door.
