But we always make up. That’s the rule, we always figure it out. We’re fair and good to each other, even when we’re angry, and that’s how we stay sane.
“Any day now,” Chris says, smiling, although I know he’s nervous.
“We’ll be fine.”
“I know, I know. I’m just saying. Could happen any day now.”
I sigh and smile at him. Chris is a big, tough buy, but he’s such a worrier. Especially when I got pregnant. I know he’s going to be an amazing father, I just hope it doesn’t weigh too heavily on him.
I know all the guys are going to be great fathers. Truth is, I don’t know which one is the biological father, and I don’t want to know. When we all decided as a group to start a family and have some babies, we decided that while we’re getting pregnant, I’ll only have sex with all five of them at once. That way, we won’t know for sure who the father is, although of course we might be able to tell by sight.
Still, we’re trying to be fair. We talked about having one baby per father, but I don’t know if I can handle five babies, so this is our solution. I feel good, and happy, and excited to finally have my child, and I know the guys are all excited, too.
“Morning.” Ethan comes down the steps, towel around his waist. He grabs some coffee and joins us at the table.
“Busy day today?” I ask him.
“Some Australian guys are recording with me,” he says. “Wanna come?”
Chris grins at me. “Will and Hunter let you do whatever you want, huh?”
“Pretty much,” I say, grinning. I still work for Treble Studios, but my position is much more nebulous. Everyone there knows that I’m with Will and Hunter, and although it’s a scandal, nobody says anything about it.
We’re not legally married, although I consider us all a family. We can’t get married, of course. We discussed me marrying one guy for a couple of years and then moving on to the next, but that would be too complicated. I figure it’s easier this way, and besides, what’s marriage mean anyway? There’d be some legal perks, but we’ll come to that when we get to it.
Chris stands up and kisses me again. “I’m off. Have a good day.”
I watch him go before turning to Ethan.
“He keeping himself together?” Ethan asks me.
I grin at him. “Barely.”
“We’re all on edge, I think. Waiting for the baby.”
“I know, but it’s going to be great.”
“I know. I just can’t wait to meet him or her.”
“Me too.” I lean across the table and he kisses me.
Will and Hunter appear a few minutes later, and we all start talking. It’s like this every morning, my five husbands chatting and laughing and teasing each other and me. They all kiss me, tell me they love me, and I feel so loved that it’s impossible not to be happy. And soon I’ll have a baby, and five men to help me raise her.
It’s unconventional. It’s a little strange. Sometimes it’s a little hard. But most of the time, I’m happier than I ever imagined I would be. I have five rich, handsome men to take care of me, my five Daddies, and I wouldn’t change a thing.
