🌹🌹Chapter 8🌹🌹
That was 5 years ago.
5 years since I have seen Richa-rd .
5 years since I gave birth.
5 years since my life changed and I bec@m£ a whole new person.
Today is royals birthday and they are so excited to be turning five.
After the babies were born I lived with my and Erica had moved in as well to help whenever she wasn’t at school.
I was able to finish my degree and graduate last month, march. It wasn’t the easiest thing to do online with three kids, a job and no sleep most of the time.
After they were born I got a job at a sh!pping company working the night shift as a sh!pping clerk, since my parents and Erica were busy during the day time but were free at nights.
They were un-derstanding with me and my hours and up until today, I still work there because the pay is great. Now that I have my degree I finally want to go into finance and since the kids will be starting school I nee-d to earn Money. I think it’s the perfect time.
Perfect because, won’t nee-d my mom to watch them everyday anymore and I can put them to be-d more often.
They were suppose to wait until September to start school because they have a early birthday. But my mom was able to get them into school on time. They had to pas-s a test in whivh they surprisingly did well so that made their admission easier.
They would be attending an elite pri-vate school for gifted children, all my parents idea. After I had applied for public school, and when tested they saw that Ryan IQ score was beyond average.
Ryder and Rose was above normal as well, but they were taken back by Ryan. What can I say, his favorite channel is discovery kids and he loves to re-ad, even if he can’t re-ad the story in the book, he invents his own, which is normally really good.
My dad determined that they deserve the best education and he would pay their tuition, after I refused to let him….well I tried.
During the days while at home with them when I had school work to do, I would sit them all at the table with me. I gave each one a book whether to color or match the numbers or alphabets. I would call it school time and they loved it because they thought they were grown ups, getting to do what I was doing.
They’re so silly.
Ryan also made me take them on nature walks to explore outside, he loves insects and reptiles.
He wanted a snake for a pet but I refused. I would have had nightmares for the rest of my life. I hate anything that crawls that isn’t a baby.
But now I see that it was a great idea because they learned so much.
I am just glad they will be starting school now because it would take some pressure off me and I would be able to work during the day and be there for them at nights. Especially for Ryder, he tend to sleep all day because he’s restless at nights when I am not at home.
My parents and Erica also nee-ded a break.
I know they love them but they can drive anyone crazy. Mostly Ryder, I just know that boy was going to be a terror even though at times times he can be a sweetheart.
This year I had to buy three separate cakes because of last year’s disaster. When we told all three to b!ow the candles out, Ryder pushed his brother and sister aside and blew them all out and then looked at me proudly while Ryan and rose threw a tantrum.
So this year I have three small cakes, a pink princess,red race car and a green dinosaur. I am sure I don’t have to mention who each cake belongs to.
I walked into the living room with two of the cake and put them down where my mom, dad, sabrina and both set of grandparents were sitting.
My grandparents were always supportive of the triplets and I. Grandpa John and Grandma Theresa,my dad parents, still live in north California and drives up often to visit. Growing up, I would spend the weekends at their house and they would buy me whatever I couldn’t get my mom and dad to give into. The triplets have also mastered that.
My moms parents, Gemma known as GG and Ronald known as pappy are the less nurturing and more materialistic because they are always too busy off traveling but regardless they never missed the triplets birthdays, even though I approved their gifts because they tend to get out of control.
Both of my parents have no siblings so everyone enjoys doting on the triplets.
Erica c@m£ and put the third cake down and I left and went to their rooms to get them.
Ever since I started working, I had been saving for a house where the kids could have space to pla-y, their own room, well at least rose had a backyard to run around in.
I moved to Westche-ster where I found a small three be-droom house that was foreclosed on.
It was pricey because of the area and nee-ded renovations but I loved the hvge yard in the back. I couldn’t pas-s it up seeing that decent size backyards were ha-rd to find in new York, especially this close to the city.
“Ryan and Ryder,come on babies time to go b!ow out your candles and open your gifts. ” I yelled as I pas-sed their door seeing them building Lego’s and went to Rose’s room. She was dressed in a ruffled purple t©p,pink ti-ghts and pink tutu, with her crown on t©p of her head. She said she’s a princess and I wouldn’t dare disagree.
“And who are you supposed to be my fair lady?” I asked picking her up and brushing a lock of her blonde hair behind her ear.
“I’m punzel mommy.” She said looking at me like I should alre-ady know.
Sometimes when I look at them I feel the urge to cry. They look so much like their dad. It’s just crazy. If he ever saw them, there would be no doubt that they belonged to him. They had all his warm caramel brown eyes and blonde hair.
Ryder acts just like Richa-rd in every way, his ability to manipulate anyone and knows how to get his way. He can charm his way throu-gh any scheme. He bosses his brother and sister around like he is so much older. He’s very friendly and outgoing.
Ryan can be a charmer as well, but he is not as outgoing as his brother. He is very smart, quiet and observant and more as a good boy like his mom.
Rose acts nothing like me, she loves to dress up and acts like a princess all day long. She is so girly unlike me. She’s her own little person.
“I knew that. How could I not know you are ra-punzel. ” I laughed as she held her head proudly.
A habit I guess she got from her egoistical brother Ryder, who I think got from his dad genes, because I remembered Dennis acting the same way when I first met him.
As I neared the living room, I heard my mom yelling at Ryder to take his f!nger out of the cake. I just shook my head because that boy is going to be the death of me.
I walked out and saw him still putting his f!nger in the cake even though his grandma told him to st©p. He just doesn’t listen to anyone. Well, except for my dad when he speaks in a serious tone, yeah it still worked on me too.
“Ryder if you stick one more f!nger in that cake I will give your gifts to Ryan. ” I threatened and that’s all it normally took.
“Awwwh, mom. It taste so yummy.” He whined su-cking the f!nger off that he just stuck in the cake.
I looked around for Ryan and saw him sitting on my dad l@p, fli-pping throu-gh his favorite book.
They are all identical, even though rose is smaller. But they each had totally different personalities.
If all acted like Ryder I would have had to leave them on the highway because I would be so mentally unstable.
When Ryder and Ryan decided to be trouble some together, it’s bad, really bad. Sometimes they would drag their sister along, but she is not always involve.
The last time my mom was watching them while I was at work, they both went to the bathroom and flooded it, saying they were trying to make a hvge bubble bath. we-t toilet paper was thrown all over and the bathroom was full of bubbles. My mom almost had an heart attack.
“OK, everyone come on. Let’s sing Happy birthday for these babies. They are growing so fast. ” my mom started to tear up.
“I am not a baby Nana! I’m a grown boy. That’s what mummy said when I ate all my veggies last night. ” Ryder boasted poking his little che-st out.
We all started laughing. Leave it up to Ryder to remember everything mummy once said.
We all sang Happy birthday, then told them to b!ow their candles out and make a wish.
“What do you all wish for?” Sabrina asked
“I wished for a pony and a castle and to go Disney world and….” Rose listed.
“That’s stupid girl stuff. I wished for a bike and a dinosaur” Ryan declared.
” hahahaha you won’t get anything because you are not suppose to say what you wished for. It supposed to be a secret that’s what GG said!” Ryder taunted them.
He then stuck his f!ngersinto both Ryan’s and Rose cake and then run out of the room.
My dad put his arms around my shoulder pu-lling me close.
“I don’t know how you do it my Angel but I would have been insane alre-ady with that little one if I were you. He will be a f0rç£ to reckon with once he gets older. ” he chuckled.
“Dad plea-se don’t remind me. It’s ha-rd enough not dropping him off somewhere at this point. ” I gro-an ed.
“You are doing a great job Ari. You are a great job and I’m very proud of you. You will forever be my baby girl no matter how old you gets and how many kids you have. ” he k!$$£d my cheeks.
“Awwwwh thanks daddy. It nice to hear that from you. ” I said.
I gathered the triplets and had them open their gifts and cut their cake.
Everyone then left after so I could put the kids to be-d because they were starting school tomorrow and I had an interview at a hvge finance firm in the business district.
I tucked the kids in and went and got re-ady for be-d. I loved my babies and I was happy but at times I still felt lonely and missed Richa-rd because they were a constant reminder of him.
Maybe I didn’t really miss him, but missed the idea of him.
I got into be-d and gr@bb£d my pillow and hvgged it to my che-st.
Many guys have asked me out before but it just never felt right. There were no Sparks. Furthermore, I love spending all of my free time with my kids, so I never had time to d@t£.
I kept thinking about my life over the years as I normally do before I drifted off into sleep.
♠️♠️CHAPTER 9♠️♠️
My alarm went off and I opened my eyes.
I smiled.
The first thing I saw was my baby’s face.
Ryder was secretly such a mama’s boy and a big baby. Every night after I put them to be-d, I would wake up to him cu-mddled next to me.
I woke him up.
“Wake up my cudd-lebug.” I k!$$£d all over his face until he opened his eyes.
He cu-mddled up into my che-st and whispered
“More minutes mommy.”
He is so silly . I am mom to him when he wants to complain and I am mummy to him when he wants something. Kids are just too funny.
I la-id there pla-ying with his blonde hair giving him five minutes more.
“Ok cudd-lebug. You have to go to school today and mommy has a big job thingy to take care of. ” I tickled him and he jump up laughing.
“If you go wake up your brother and sister, I will pay you a dollar. ”
I didn’t even have to wait for an answer before he ran out of the room and into his room yelling at Ryan and Rose to get up.
I got them dressed and made breakfast, leaving them to eat while I got re-ady really fast because I don’t trust them by themselves.
I took a shower and straightened my hair ,then put on a Sk-irt suit and light make up. I packed my bag and the kids backpacks and lunch bags and we all headed out to my old 2000 ford SUV. I bought it right before the kids were born because that was the only way I was able to transport them around.
I opened the back door and they all jumped into their booster seats. I made sure they were buckled in before I got in and head out of their school.
They were all quiet. I guess they were nervous. Something they have gotten from me. I pu-ll-ed up to the school and got all their stuff. I opened the door and let them out,handing each one their belongings as they got out.
Some of the parents st©pped and stared,which could only be because of two reasons, either they’ve never seen identical triplets before or they were wondering what a twenty three year old like myself was doing with three kids.
I’m so used to it.
“Ok guys let’s go, because mommy has to get going.”
Ryan and Rose held my legs shaking their heads and started to cry while Ryder just stood there.
plea-se not today.
I begged looking up to the sky.
I look at them and gathered all three of them in front of me.
“Listen up,mummy nee-ds your help. Can you be big kids for mommy today? If you can I promise, we will go to chunck cheese this weekend.” I bribe-d them.
“Okay. Only if you promise to buy us pizza and let us eat soda.” Ryder negotiated.
Some days I just want to put a sock in his mouth.
“Fine! Fine! You can get whatever you want as long as you promise to behave well at school today. If I get any complains, you will not like what I will do. ” I said seriously.
“Now let’s go. ” I walked them to their clas-s and k!$$£d each of them before they went into the clas-s.
Ryder was the last to go. He hvgged me and k!$$£d my cheek when it was his turn.
“Don’t worry mommy, I will take care of them.” And with that he went running after the others.
I was quite worried he said that, that could be a good thing and a bad thing. He loved to make his brother and sister cry, but he hated when anyone else made them cry, in his be eyes it was only okay for him to do that.
I tried to put the triplets setting the building on fire out of my mind as I hurried down town.
I made it just in time and check in with the receptionist.
“Good morning, welcome to world market financial Group. How may I help you?” The receptionist greeted.
“Good morning. My name is Ariana Harrison. I am here for an interview with Mr. Maxwell.” I told her.
“Okay. I see that you have been scheduled for a ten o’clock. Here is your visitors pas-s. Take the elevator up to the 29th floor and the secretary on that floor will be there to as-sist you. ” she said giving me a smile after checking the computer.
“Thank you.” I said taking the pas-s as I head to the elevator. I got to the 29th floor and there was another hvge desk with a lady sitting behind it. As I walked to her desk,she got up and c@m£ around and shook my hand.
“Hi, you must be ms. Harrison. Mr.maxwell is re-ady for you. Follow me this way plea-se.” She said.
I followed her throu-gh a long hallways filled with offices and cubicles until we got to the last door, where she knocked and after being told to enter,opened the door, shooed me in and closed it behind me.
The chair turned and there sat a very handsome but serious looking man in his early thirties I as-sume. He introduced himself then looked me up and down and gave me the Cheshire smile.
per-vert, I thought to myself.
I took a seat as he began telling me about the question and asking me questions. OK maybe his serious face was a facade because he hasn’t st©pped smiling at me since I sat down.
“I decided to interview you myself, ms. Harrison after reviewing your resume with the HR dep@rtment. They brou-ght it to my attention that you graduated t©p of your clas-s at NYU with a perfect is not everyday that we see these GPA come throu-gh the door for entry level positions. So tell me about yourself, why you have never had an internsh!pbefore graduating and why you consider yourself fit for our organization. ” he spoke as he leaned back in his big black comfy chair with the view of other skyscr@p£rs behind him.
I looked him directly in the eyes so he would know that he was not intimid@t!ngme with his handsome face, open jacket showing off his physique and ru-bbing of his chin. I must admit he’s attrac-tive.
Ok, focus here Anna.
I answered all his questions but avoid mentioning the twins.
Don’t get me wrong, I am very proud of my children. They are the best thing that ever happened to me and they made me who I am today but some people can see three kids and no father as too much responsibility and may feel I will not have the time it would take to commit to the job.
So I have learnt from my past interviews to avoid it in any interview.
After we were finished, he told me the HR dep@rtment would get back to me at the end of the week because they still had a couple more candid@t£s to interview.
I thanked him and took my leave but not before he commented on my beauty.
I did blus-h even though it was a very inappropriate comment for such an environment. I hope there won’t be a problem working with him if I got the Job.
Sometimes being a mother of three I tend to forget about myself . I am so used to walking around with puke all over me or baby food or something. Always in comfy clothes and be-d sli-ppers walking around the house trying to not step on blocks and Lego’s. My hair always wild from the kids pu-lling on it. It makes it easy to forget myself and age.
The way he looked at me made me feel young, vibr@nt and beautiful. Not that I nee-ded to hear it from him but it didn’t hurt to hear it. It only reminded and reaffirmed me.
As I was walking back throu-gh the hallway my phone started to ring bringing me back to earth. I answered it to find out it was the kid’s school.
Turns out that Ryder got into a fight and was now throwing a tantrum because they tried to put him in time out.
“Seriously Ry. It’s only been two hours. ” I mumbled as I left the building and drove back to the school.
I was so mad at him until I got to the school and entered the clas-sroom and he ran to me and held on as ti-ght as he could.
Ryan and Rose c@m£ running too as well begging to leave with them.
The teacher explained to me what happened. I told her I would just take them the rest of the day and would deal with Ryder myself.
I wasn’t re-ady to go home so I decided to take them to the the children’s museum of Manhattan,since it was too cold to go to the park.
We went inside and I sat on the bench and pu-ll-ed Ryder on to my l@p and told rose and Ryan they could around but had to stay where I could see them.
Ryder wra-pped his arms around my n£¢k and buried his face into my che-st.
I ru-bbe-d his back.
I loved him so much even though he was so mischievous.
“Ry, mommy’s cudd-lebear?” I softened him up so he would tell me the truth without thinking I would be mad.
I’ve learned that when they think you are mad, they lie. So I opted for the truth.
“Want to tell mommy why you pushed Jake down and sat on him after you promised me you would be good?” I asked him trying to get him to talk to me.
He always worries me when he’s quiet.
He still didn’t move his face but mumbled in my che-st.
“Jake was calling Rose names and made everyone laugh at her. He was ma-king my sister sad mommy. I told him to st©p it but when he said I was a big baby and I pushed him and he fell. But he was still ma-king her sad so I sat on him. ” he explained.
“Did you tell this to your Ms.Chris?” I asked.
“Yes mommy. But she still made me stand in a corner and not Jake. ”
I felt his tears dropping on my shi-t. Haaaa. He is working really ha-rd not to be punished.
“I tell her that if I stand in a corner,jake will also stand with me.”
I tried to contain my laughter.
“I told her that when Ryan and I did bad you will make both of us go to time out. ” he sobbe-d
“She didn’t want to listen so I told her I wanted you and she refuse to get you for me so I started to cry. ” he said.
All I could do at this point was to laugh. I couldn’t hold it anymore.
“Baby, mommy won’t be able to come to school every time you have a problem. Next time be a big boy and don’t fight but instead, go and tell ms. Chris. ” I k!$$£d his head.
“But mommy is so proud of you, for being a big brother for your sister. ” I k!$$£d him and squee-zed him.
“Now that you know I won’t punish you, you can st©p hiding in my jacket and go pl@ywith your brother and sister if you want. ”
And of course he jumped off my l@p and ran over to a toy car where Ryan and rose were pla-ying.
It was ha-rd to believe that he was just shedding crocodile tears all over me.
I took my phone out and snapped couple pictures of them.
We walked around for an hour before they started begging to go to McDonalds.
A bad habit my mom started.
But I gave in because I was hungry myself.
We went and ate and ran about in the indoor pla-yland.
By the time they got back into the car and I started driving, they all fell asleep.
When I got home, I didn’t want to wake them out when after the other, taking them inside and laying them on my be-d.
After I took them all inside,I took off their jackets and shoes.
I learned a Long time ago to sleep when they are slee-ping. So I will just take a nap as always.
I went to the bathroom and changed into some yoga p@n-ts and Richa-rd ‘s T-shi-t that I wore out of his house that morning.
I really don’t know why I kept it but it had the ability to give me a s-en-se of comfort.
Weird, I know.
After cleaning the light make up from my face, I went to l@ynext to them,pu-lling a blanket over all of us. I fell asleep with three little bodies snuggled against me reminding me of just how treasured I really am.
