A few months have passed since Chance and Callie went on their date. Things between the two of them have been going smoothly since then. It’s getting pretty close to BJ and CJ’s 2nd birthday, so their father decided that it’s time for them to learn how to walk. CJ picked up on it rather quickly, being the first to do so. BJ however, is having trouble getting started…
“Come on, BJ!” Chance said as he held his arms out toward BJ. Jake was holding the kitten up to get him started. CJ was on the couch, lying on his side with a bottle in his mouth.
“Come here little buddy, you can do it!” Chance said with a big smile on his face. BJ wasn’t really paying any attention as he was hanging himself in the air supported by Jake. Chance was beginning to grow irritated with this, as they had been doing for about 30 minutes.
“Aw jeez,” Chance said with a sigh. “Okay Jake, you can let ’em go now.”
“Don’t worry about it, Chance,” Jake said, sitting BJ down on the couch. “He’ll get it, sooner or later.”
“Oh yeah, right,” Chance said sarcastically. “How long have I been tryin’ to get him to walk now? About two months right?”
“Yeah, that sounds about right,” Jake replied.
“I just don’t get it,” Chance said, lifting CJ up and sitting down where he was. “CJ learned in about two weeks. I thought BJ would at least pick up on it, but he’s not even trying.”
“What? Chance, you really think he knows what you want him to do?”
“No… I know that. But, he’s almost 2 years old. I learned when I was 1, didn’t you?”
“Yeah, but Chance it’s not something you can rush. He’ll walk when he’s ready, no later, no sooner.”
Chance gave another sigh and stood up. “Alright. Here, watch this one for me,” he said handing over CJ to Jake. Chance picked up BJ and headed toward the stairs. “I’m gonna put BJ down for his nap, since CJ just had his.”
“Okay,” Jake said. “Hey, you might want to take one yourself. You look exhausted.”
“Oh, yeah I have been pretty stressed lately,” Chance replied followed by a sleepy yawn. “Okay then, thanks.”
“Daddy!” CJ blurted out with a smile. It made Chance turn around with a grin, and waved to him.
“Bye-bye, CJ!” Chance said softly. “I’ll be back later!”
CJ imitated Chance by waving back at him as he and BJ went up the stairs.
Chance lay across his bed, with BJ resting comfortably on his stomach. Chance was stroking his kitten’s hair down with a smile. He was tired, but not sleepy. He was too busy thinking about his son to sleep.
“Aw BJ,” he started. “What am I gonna do with you? Why won’t you walk?”
BJ made a cooing noise as he turned around on his back. Chance nodded his head and decided that he might as well go to sleep, seeing as there was nothing else he could do. He was just about doze off when a knock came to the door.
“Yeah, come on in,” he said, half asleep already.
He was expecting it to be Jake, but it wasn’t. “Callie?” he said in surprise. “What are you doin’ here?” As Chance was getting up, Callie walked over to him. Chance puts BJ on his bed on his stomach.
“Chance, Jake told me what happened. Why are you forcing BJ to walk?” Callie said as she looks at Chance for an answer he just looks at her and then BJ
“I dunno, Callie, I just want him to walk that’s all. I wanna show them that I’m a good father and to make them happy,” Chance said as Callie came over and hugged him. Chance closed his eyes.
“Chance, you are a good father to them you been there since they were born and every time they see you they always have a smile on their cute faces just be patient okay Chance you shouldn’t make them compete with each other they are brothers not rivals,” Callie said just then Chance heard BJ waking up he opens his eyes and sees his daddy beside him.
“Da da,” he said as Chance was surprised that BJ was talking he picks his son up and hugs him as BJ grabbed his dad’s chest he placed his head on his chest knowing that he will always feel safe in his dad’s arms Chance begins look at BJ.
“Hey there BJ I don’t care if you never walk I’ll always love you my little guy……….. and Callie you’re right I shouldn’t force them to compete with each other,” Chance said as Callie smiles at the both of them she leaves the room as she looks at Chance and BJ were talking to each other.
