Chapter 21

Maddy was being released from the hospital but the twins had to stay in the NICU unit until they were healthy to go home. Maddy did not want to leave her babies behind but she knew they needed special care by the doctors and nurses so that helped Maddy's mind.

Maddy and Kris were in the car heading home and Maddy looked out the window at the hospital and a tear feel down her cheek. She quickly wiped it away because she did not want Kris to know she was crying but he figured it out anyway.

"Maddy its going to be ok" Kris said grabbing her hand as she tired to hide more tears.
"Its not fair Kris!"
"I know but they will be home soon".
"They should be in the car with us now like normal new mothers" Maddy sighed.
"Yes they should be they wanted to see the world early so that gives us more time to make their nursery even better" Kris said trying to lighten the mood and calm Maddy down.
"Oh my word, we have not gotten the nursery finished but you are right we have some time now. Not my idea of the best time but you are right they needed to meet the world early because they are Letangs" Maddy said which made Kris grin brightly.

A few days later after Kris and Maddy had gone to visit the twins they were at home working on the nursery. Maddy was told to take it easy which she was by telling Kris where to put everything and once in a while she would pick up something light and put it somewhere in the room. Kris just shook his head but knew that Maddy was just following the doctors orders.

They finished the nursery and were standing in the middle of the room and looking at what they had done.

"Its amazing" Maddy said as Kris held her close.
"Yeah well actually I did most of the work so it has my amazing touch all over it" Kris bragged which earned him a punch in the abdomen by Maddy.
"Ouch" Kris yelped.
"Oh the boy hockey boy is hurt and sad because a girl punched him" Maddy laughed and tried to move away but Kris picked her up and threw her over his shoulder.
"Gotcha now Maddy" Kris said as he walked them back to the bedroom. He proceeded to throw Maddy onto the bed and knelt above her and smirked.
"Now you are my prisoner" Kris joked.
"Oh if only I had a strong handsome hero to save me" Maddy joked back and tried to escape but Kris held her and then proceeded to kiss her senseless.
"If you are good I will not torture you" Kris said continuing his kissing attack on Maddy. Maddy giggled and played along and before they both knew it, it was dinner time and they decided to go out to eat.

After dinner Kris drove Maddy to a local park to take a walk. They walked together in a relaxed silence enjoying the views. Maddy enjoyed just holding Kris's hand and being in the fresh air. There were other people out walking and playing and Maddy realized that even though the babies were in the hospital she and Kris would have them home before she knew it.

As they were walking along Kris looked over at a family and smiled and then he turned to Maddy, "Maddy, I know you just had the twins and I swore I only wanted one child do you want to have more kids?"
Maddy's eyes widened in surprise but she smiled and leaned her head on Kris's shoulder, "Yeah I think I do want to have more kids. I know having the twins was an experience that I will never forget but I definitely want more babies with you".

Kris smiled at Maddy and stopped walking and pulled her close and kissed her deeply and then they continued their walk.

Chapter 20

Kris watched as the doctors helped Maddy give birth to the twins. They were extremely tiny and rushed to the Neonatal Unit to help them survive. Kris held Maddy after the twins were taken to NICU. The doctor was hopeful that the twins would be fine but they were very small so time would tell.

Maddy looked at Kris with tears in her eyes, "We might lose them and it would be my fault".
Kris hated hearing Maddy say that it was her fault that they might lose the twins, "Maddy it is not your fault. Don't you dare say that ever again!"
Maddy nodded her head and buried her face in Kris's chest. He held her close and kissed her temple.

The doctors and nurses were working on the twins and hooking them up to machines to help them breathe. The twins named, Lucy Madison Letang, and Luc Matthew Letang, were both struggling to survive.

Back in Maddy's room, Maddy had fallen asleep after her exhausting day. Kris was on his phone sending pictures to his parents and friends. Kris looked at Maddy and watched her sleep and then he got up and headed down to the nurse's station.

Kris stopped at the desk and the nurse sitting there looked up at him, "Can I help you sir?" she asked.
"Yes, I have a question about my wife, Madeline Letang?" Kris asked.
"Sure" the nurse said.
"You know she and I were held hostage a while back and that is when we conceived the twins and Maddy did not know she was pregnant and neither did I. She did not see a doctor for the beginning of her pregnancy and she feels responsible and guilty for the twins being born early. Could she be right?"
"It is a possibility but twins usually come early and are small and I do not want to say that everything will be perfect but hopefully your children will be fine so just be there for your wife and love her, sir"
"Thank you and I will be there for Maddy" Kris said and headed back to Maddy's room. He sat down next to Maddy on the bed and took her hand in his and kissed it, "Maddy I love you and will always protect you as I promised".

Maddy woke up when the nurse came into her room, "Maddy, we want you to come and see the twins now. I think if you see them and talk to them it will help".
"Sure" Maddy said as the nurse helped her into the wheelchair. Maddy looked over at Kris, who had fallen asleep in the couch and she smiled.
"Do you want to wake up your husband?" the nurse asked.
"No, let him sleep he has been through a lot" Maddy said as the nurse wheeled her to the NICU unit.

As Maddy was wheeled up to the twins incubators she was in shock at how small they looked. She stood up carefully and put her hand in to touch her daughter. Lucy grabbed Maddy's finger and Maddy smiled.

"Hey angel, its mommy and I love you so much" Maddy said as a tear fell down her cheek, "You are so precious to me and your daddy and we will always be there for you and your brother". Maddy then moved to see her baby boy and then continued to talk to both of them.

Kris had woken up and realized that Maddy was gone and went to find her. He was told she had been taken to see the twins. When Kris got to the NICU unit he saw Maddy talking to the babies. He smiled and thought that maybe seeing them and talking to them would make Maddy realize that she was not at fault for the twins being premature. Kris walked over to Maddy and put an arm around Maddy and she turned to see Kris and smiled at him, "They are so precious Kris and they are ours".
"Yes they are and we are lucky to be their parents" Kris said and kissed Maddy.

They both spent more time talking and letting the twins grab their fingers until Maddy got tired. They headed back to Maddy's room and got settled and had dinner.

Kris told Maddy what the nurse had said about twins and that made her realize everything would be fine and they prayed together for the twins health and hopeful progress of getting stronger soon.
