Summary: One small decision makes a life altering surprise for the good Doctor Oliver.
Kira sat down at the head of the long table reserved for their party; they were at one of the finest restaurants in town. Kira did NOT want to make this announcement to her friends in public but half of them made excuses and only settled on dinner on the town so they weren’t out in the “boonies”. That was why she hated her friends sometimes. At least she was there first so she could hide her expanded stomach.
She looked to Tommy who sat next to her and was watching her quietly; he had been studying her with such an apprehensive look. It made her nervous and sicker to her stomach than she already was. She didn’t think she COULD get sicker to her stomach, but this proved her wrong. Then she felt a warm weight on her hand and looked to see his hand on top of hers. She looked from his hand, to his face and he was smiling softly at her.
“Thank you,” she said softly and he leaned over and brushed a kiss to her cheek and whispered, ‘You’re welcome’ into her ear.
“Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Lookie what we interrupted,” Ethan hooted and Kira immediately lurched away and punched Ethan in the side, which caused him to double over. Kira smiled over him to Sam like she didn’t do anything and waved.
“Hi Sam! How are you?”
“Better than Ethan,” Sam replied brightly and wondered why Kira was tucked so closely to the table. “You?”
“I’m hungry and hoping Conner won’t be late,” she said as Sam took her seat.
“He’ll be late, you know him,” Cassidy Cornell said as she and Devin made their way to the table. She kissed each one of Kira’s cheeks before sitting down next to Tommy. “Doctor Oliver, it’s been so long,” she said and batted her eyes, he laughed and shook his head.
“Ages,” he said as he chuckled and Ethan raised his brows. “We saw each other yesterday,” Tommy informed him and Ethan shrugged and reached for the breadbasket, Kira slapped his hand and he shrieked and they began to feud over the last roll, which was promptly taken by Sam.
“Children,” she stated and they both looked sheepish for one second and then giggled together and performed their handshake.
“How come we don’t have a handshake?” Conner McKnight asked as he pulled a chair for Krista and then sat down.
“Because you’re not special and your refused to go to Gaming Tuesdays,” Kira said with a smile and Conner smiled right back.
“You know I get dizzy, especially with split screens,” Conner insisted, “And are we ordering yet, I’m starving!”
“Usually I’d make fun of you even more, but I’m hungry too,” Kira said and cracked open her menu.
“Where’s Trent?” Tommy asked.
“He’ll be here later, he’s in a business meeting with his Dad,” he said, Kira rolled her eyes, she didn’t want to push off this announcement much longer, she had to pee constantly and the urge was rising.
Soon the meals were ordered, and everyone was talking in between bites. Kira felt at ease for the first time in a long while. She missed it, being around all of them again, and being in Reefside. As much as she wanted her time in the spotlight, she missed this more. Then she put down her fork when she realized she had to go.
“Everyone! Yo, put down the fork pigs! CONNER. FORK. DOWN. Good pig,” Kira said with a look that could possibly kill, “Anyways, I just want to take the time to say thanks for coming out tonight, being with all of you makes me realize how home sick I’ve been. Fame isn’t everything to me anymore and…and right now, I have to pee,” she abruptly stood and everyone’s eyes went to her middle, “Also. Surprise!”
With that she waddled off leaving Conner choking on the steak he had snuck during her speech. Krista, Sam and Cassidy looked at each other and then bolted after her.
“Kira! Oh My GOD are we seeing what we’re seeing?” Cassidy asked and Kira laughed.
“No, I’m faking. YES, I’m pregnant and I wasn’t kidding, I have to pee! I don’t need an audience!”
“Too damn bad! We have questions!” Sam insisted, as all of them tromped into the bathroom.
“Who’s the Daddy?” Cassidy immediately asked, Kira rolled her eyes and closed the door.
“It’s Doctor Oliver, duh! Who else,” Krista said and Kira laughed from behind the door.
“Ding ding ding! Winner!”
“When?” Sam asked.
“I popped in about three months ago and one thing lead to another and ta-da, I’m pregnant.”
“Babies from the size of you, if you’re three months.” Cassidy said, eyeing Kira’s size.
“Yeah. It’s twins,” she confirmed as they walked out of the bathroom.
---Full of Surprises---
“Twins?!?!” Conner said, almost gagging, face still red from his previous lack of oxygen.
“Yeah,” Tommy said and Ethan giggled at Conner.
“So how are you feeling Daddy?” the former Blue Ranger asked, Tommy sighed and eyed Kira and the others heading towards them.
“I’m still in shock. But I’m ok, I’m happy. I’m not getting any younger, but I’m worried about her,” he told him and Conner took a quick sip of water before he replied.
“Let’s see, she’s giving up her career and I don’t want her to believe that the motives behind the progression of our relationship are because she’s having my children,” he sighed, Ethan’s brows lifted.
“Well well well, has our good Doctor been hot for one of his students?” he leered and Tommy sighed.
“My God you pervert! That’s the conclusion I KNEW people would jump on. I do love Kira, I have for a while. But it was after she got out of school, we were always friends, and the only person who can vouch for me on that is Hayley. And she’s decided to take a vacation and refuses to answer my calls. But I just hope Kira doesn’t think I’m just in this relationship to appease everyone around us.”
“I think that.”
“I know you do Conner,” and Kira greeted him with a deck to the back of the head.
“Conner, are you being an asshole again? I can tell Tommy is pissed; he’s got that look in his eye. You know you’re treading on thin ice, Bro,” she said as she sat down, “I want dessert,”
“I already ordered you the fruit sorbet,” Tommy replied mildly and she beamed.
“Yay!” she cheered and he smiled as she actually clapped her hands.
“Kira…this is really awkward,” Conner said to her and she merely smiled at him.
“For you it is. Anyone else find this awkward?” Kira asked the table and everyone shook their heads.
“Nah, been expecting this since Prom,” Devin said, and smiled, “Congratulations!” Kira smiled and leaned over to hug him.
“Thank you Devin,” Kira chirped and squeed as her sorbet landed in front of her.
Suddenly a girl with dark hair approached the table, she stopped next to Kira.
“So, whoreface, are you going to put down the fork and give me a hug?” She asked as Kira looked up at her. As the whole table sat aghast and stared at the girl, Kira just smiled at her.
“Hell no, bitch! Pull up a chair and I might go halfsies,” The girl beamed and pulled a chair and silverware from an empty table and sat next to her. They chuckled into the dessert while the table continued to stare.
“Kira, care to inform us who this young woman is?” Tommy asked blankly.
“This would be my bratty sister Marianna. Mari, meet my crew. Crew, say hi.”
There was silence.
“Warm welcome, very nice,” Mari said, and grinned, “I feel like I’m home.”
“Kira, I’ve known you for 6 years and you didn’t tell me you had a Sister?” Ethan asked, Kira just smiled sweetly.
“You never asked. You guys are kinda crappy when it comes to asking about my home life,” she informed them.
That’s when Trent made his way to the table.
“What did I miss?” Everyone just looked at him, “What?”
To Be Continued
Please note, I usually don't staddle people with extra siblings, especially Kira but I did enjoy her banter with Ashley Tisdale on Hellcats so I couldn't resist giving Kira a Sister here. I had a lot of fun with this. And there's more coming!
