“Alex proposed” Caleb squealed happily, bounding into me as I opened the front door and knocking me on my back.
“Ow” I muttered as he sat on me.
Maxxie got up and Caleb scrabbled off me, his eyes still all wide and excited as Maxxie helped me up. I rubbed my back, trying to ignore the ache from where I’d hit the floor. Caleb’s heavy when he throws himself at you. Maxxie smiled, snuggling me from behind.
"That's really great, Caleb. Took the bastard long enough"
"I know, right?" Caleb said and Maxxie rubbed my back better. "And you two and the snotlets are invited and there's gonna be glitter and cake and unicorns and a magician and bunnies and I think I wanted a peacock or twelve"
"So where is Alex?" I asked.
"Your fiancé. Where is he?"
"Oh, he's wherever I left him"
"And where's that?"
"How should I know?"
"He's in the car" Maxxie said, looking out the window.
Caleb’s eyes lit up and he rushed to the window, waving at Alex. I’m guessing Alex waved back because Caleb made a heart at him.
"Were we that bad?" I asked Maxxie, rolling my eyes a little at Caleb.
"No, but then neither of us has the mental age of a five year old"
I clicked my fingers and Caleb looked round, smiling like I’d just waved something shiny in front of him.
"If you're gonna go be cute, go home"
"Oh, I came to borrow something, actually" he said, dashing off to the bedroom.
Maxxie followed him curiously but Caleb was back before he’d gotten very far.
"Thanks" he said happily, rushing past Maxxie.
"What did you get?" Maxxie asked and Caleb sort of waved some lube around in Maxxie’s direction.
Maxxie chuckled, shaking his head a little.
"What?" Caleb asked innocently.
"You two are terrible. Buy your own next time"
"It's not like you two need it"
"Why don't we need it?"
"Because you have kids and that makes you old and old people don't have sex"
Maxxie leant in kinda close. "Wanna bet?" he asked, grinning.
Caleb grinned right back at him. "Yup"
"We have more sex than you two ever will" Maxxie said, dry humping me.
Did I blush? Yeah, of course I blushed.
"Oh yeah? I'm not planning on letting Alex go anywhere for the next three to four days"
Maxxie nibbled my neck a little. "Yeah. Bunny won't be able to walk straight by the time I'm done with him"
Caleb shook his head. "He won't, 'cause I've stolen your lube"
"He will if you don’t give it back"
Maxxie grabbed it off him, grinning when Caleb shot him a sad look.
"But how will me and Alex have special times in the car?"
"You have to get the lube back"
"Gimme" Caleb said innocently.
Maxxie waved it above him, shuffling back when Caleb tried to get it. Caleb tried to grab it and Maxxie shuffled away with it, giggling.
"What?" Caleb asked.
"You can't want it that much. come get it, Ginger"
Caleb chased after him, giving in after a while once he’d worn himself out. It didn’t take much to wear him out these days.
"Mine" Caleb said happily, smiling.
"You win" Maxxie said, letting out a breathless chuckle.
Caleb’s eyes lit up and Maxxie gave him the lube. Caleb fucked off without even saying bye and Maxxie flopped down on the couch. I went and made sure Caleb had shut the front door, which he hadn’t, and sat next to Maxxie. He smiled at me and I smiled back, snuggling up to him.
"I feel old" he pouted.
"Why?" I laughed.
"I can't out run a ginger and he stole our lube so I can't have sex either"
"I can go get some more, y'know"
He shot me this kind of begging look and I kissed his cheek, grabbing my keys and heading out to buy some more.
Maxxie was having a nap by the time I got back and I didn’t wake him up, putting the lube in its rightful place before tidying up the house a little. Maxxie was still asleep when it was time to go get the kids, and they knew to be quiet when they saw him unconscious on the couch. I set to work on dinner after a while, figuring I’d test my culinary skills since I’d be cooking for the kids full time whenever Maxxie...
“Daddy’s awake” I heard Lily say and headed for the living room, smiling at Maxxie.
"Dinner's almost ready" I said, kissing the top of his head when he looked a little upset.
"Can I help with anything?" he asked and I shook my head.
“Just relax" I smiled, going back to my cooking.
Maxxie turned his attention to the TV, bringing the kids over once the food was ready. I’d just about managed to make a meal, which I was pretty damn proud of, and Lily and Danny both tucked into it like it was something Maxxie had made. Maxxie ate a little and we went through the usual routine of getting him to eat as much as he could and then a little more. I smiled, kissing the top of his head when he leant it on my shoulder.
"M'sorry I fell asleep" he said.
"I wanted to make the most of the day with you" he said sadly.
"We've still got the evening" I smiled.
He hummed, nuzzling my neck.
"Daddy, can we go watch TV?" Lily asked.
"Sure. Me and Papa will be upstairs" Maxxie smiled.
"Okay" she said and the both of them went off to watch TV.
"Coming, Bunny boy?" Maxxie asked and I laughed a little, heading upstairs with him.
I snuggled up to Maxxie once we were done, and I couldn’t help but notice that he was worn out.
"D'you want me to try and top from now on?" I asked and he shook his head.
"Not unless you’re in the mood to, gorgeous"
"I don't want you wearing yourself out, though"
"Everything wears me out" he said, chuckling slightly.
I kissed the top of his head and he hummed, snuggling close to me. He was getting kinda skinny now. I buried my head in his chest, nuzzling him as he played with my hair. Maxxie fell asleep after a while and I stayed awake in case one of the kids needed us, content to just snuggle up to him. Eventually it was time for the kids to go to bed. Maxxie was half awake when I got back and I smiled at him.
"I did it again, didn't I?" he said, giving me this sleepy little smile.
"I don't mind, gorgeous"
"I do" he said, sighing slightly.
I kissed the top of his head and he hid his face in my neck.
"We can call a babysitter and go out if you're feeling up to it" I said and he nodded.
Maxxie got dressed while I called a babysitter, changing into something fancier when I did the same.
"I have no idea where we're going" I laughed once the babysitter turned up.
Maxxie smiled. "I'm gonna be really mushy here and remind you I don't care, as long as I’m with you"
I laughed and he kissed me.
"Where to then, gorgeous?" he asked.
