Kane nodded, "Sleep baby, I'll make us breakfast for lunch before we go and Ava will be ready for her nap by the time we leave so she won't be too much trouble." Kane was trying to make this as easy as possible for her but bringing your new country superstar boyfriend and his daughter probably wasn't the norm for these kinds of things but he hoped it would all go smoothly.
She really didn't seem capable of staying away, at this rate she didn't know if she completely want to. Turning to her side she borrowed her head into the pillow. "Not yet," she said letting out a small breath. Waking up to him was nice, though she loved living on her own.
Adjusting the blankets she glanced to her phone begrudgingly picking it up. "We meet them at three in Memphis. So....time to sleep a little longer."
Kane kissed her back, “God your beautiful.” The next day he woke up tangled in the sheets with her. He knew today they were meeting her son and she would be nervous about it but maybe Ava could break the ice on that a little bit, she was another kid and could make it a little less awkward. Lord knows it’s going to be awkward. Kane kisses her awake gently.
"If only you weren't so obvious it'd work out perfectly," she teased him with a wide grin. Iris would talk to Kenny someday about this, only right now it seemed a weekend thing. Leaning up again she kissed him holding the kiss for longer, enjoying the feel of their lips meeting.
Pressing her hands into his chest, she leaned into him with a smile. This wasn't a bad way to go about a weekend.
Kane smiled, "I look at it this way about being professional, as long as no one knows then nobody can care." He said holding her waist. He never wanted to let her go. "If someone says something, just remember you always have a job with me. I don't care what anyone says." He was loyal and sometimes that was to a fault. "Ava loves you too, she asks about you all the time."
"You're making this really hard to stay professional, Kane," Iris smiled keeping her arms around him. She'd be obvious soon enough, Kenny might reassign her or fire her. Right now it didn't matter until business came up again.
Standing on the tip of her toes she kissed him softly keeping her arms around him. This didn't happen everyday. "I really do like you a lot, though. Ava is growing on me, too."
Kane modded, “you don’t have to say anything back...I didn’t know if I should say it or not. You’ve done so much for me...I just needed you to know.” Kane needed her more than she knew, especially now that Ava depended on him and he wasn’t a good dad and he knew that. She hated him at times. Rambo slept in Ava’s room with her and Kane worried a little less about her knowing the dog would alert him if something was wrong.
"Its something my mom always said, without schedules I was impossible, I guess it's a great toddler rule. That and I'm the shiny new toy after a hard time," she shrugged stepping into him resting her head into his chest before hearing those words. Looking up at him, jaw sagging slightly.
"No... I don't think you have...I have no idea what to say," she stammered, the wave of conflicting emotions crashing into her.
Kane smiled, “Thank you I mean it. Sometimes she’s horrible to get to sleep and I’m new at this dad thing so I’m not the best at it. She gets frustrated with me because I don’t do something right and I don’t even know what it is most of the time and you do it perfectly without even knowing.” He said sighing. He pulled Iris into his arms, “So beautiful....have I told you that I love you?”
She nodded to him before smiling feeling Ava rest her head on her shoulder.
After forty-five minutes she helped get her ready and read the same book as the week before. When she settled down she soothed her hair and kissed her forehead. Maybe if she had kept Mason she'd feel different, she knew it was for the better.
Joining him in his room she took in the room in more details before looking at him. "She's settled down, she fell asleep before I even left the room."
Kane nodded, “Are you sure? Y’all are okay?” He asked knowing kids weren’t exactly Iris’ strong point and she wasn’t fully comfortable with Ava yet. When she insisted Kane nodded, “Ill be in my room darlin’ come find me when y’all are done, I washed all of her blankets and her pillows and made her bed so it should be ready for her.” He said looking to the pair who looked more like a mother and daughter pair than he would have liked.
It wasn't too much longer when the girl began to fade. Iris was surprised when Ava came up to her to be picked up. Iris looked at Kane for a moment in confusion before picking her up like last week. She probably wanted the same book as she read last time.
"So, I guess I'll give you the night off and get her ready for bed," she said looking to him for a second before starting up the stairs.
Kane nodded, "Yeah let me get her toys." Ava had a small basket of outside toys in a corner of the wrap around porch. The house was beautiful southern architecture and Kane loved it... even if he had no one but Ava to share it with. He kissed Iris' cheek and brought a ball over. Ava ran to grab it and Kane chuckled, "Not so fast princess, we all have to get in our places."
"It was good to see you getting out and about, those guys really like you and you looked like you had some fun. She had a lot of fun, too," Iris smiled before nodding. "I know, we just can't have the same fiasco as before. I can't listen to that for another few days without going insane."
After dinner she went outside with Ava, playig on the swing set or whatever else. Ava did start to win her over, not enough to become a mom figure but an aunt or something like that.
"Want to play ball with her?" She asked with a grin.
Kane chuckled, "Sorry about what happened at the cook out... I couldn't help myself and you deserved it after getting me there and trapping me... hell I had to tell Kenny how interesting he was for an hour. Do you know how boring that man is? He could make watching paint dry sound more exciting than he is." Kane said shaking his head, "I'm not sorry about the kiss though."
