Orb's Year 925
"Of course. I'll always have time for my little girl!" Thomas said as he danced her around quickly.
"Oh promise that I can help one day, Daddy!"
Thomas laughed at how eager she sounded. "I promise!"
He didn't have time to dance or play with her anymore...
It was all so much to get used to!
Orb's Year 926
Thomas had been overjoyed at learning Barika was pregnant again, but he remembered how hard it was to run the tailor shop without Barika's help. She tired so easily during her pregnancies.
Orb's Year 927
Thomas instructed Addison on her chores for the day, "Remember, it's your job to keep an eye on Brooklyn and make sure she doesn't need anything. Come and get us if you need help."
Addison nodded eagerly. "Yes, Daddy!"
Addison shook her head at her little sister. "No you're not."
"Am too!" Brooklyn stomped her foot.
"Are not!" Addison said with her hands on her hips.
"Girls!" Thomas interrupted, pointing to their living quarters. "Go before you are both in trouble!" Under their father's stern glare, the girls slunk away without an argument.
Brooklyn protested, "It wasn't me! It was you!"
Addison sighed a long-suffering sigh. "Come now, let me help you with your work. Daddy will be pleased we finished our duties!"
Thomas abandoned the customer and rushed to his wife's side. "What do you need? Just tell me! I'll get it for you!"
He was always so anxious at this time!
