Hot Single Dad

He blows out a breath and leans back. “Yeah. I just need to hide out from Kendra for a little bit.”

I laugh. “Why?”

“We’re trying to get pregnant,” he says. “And she’s treating me like her own personal sperm factory.”

I’m so surprised, I cough a few times before I can respond. “She’s… wow. Uh, okay. I didn’t realize you guys wanted kids right away.”

“Yeah,” he says with a shrug. “Kendra was basically made to be a mom; I knew she’d want a family. Plus, you have Charlotte and she’s pretty great.”

That makes me smile. Weston’s never struck me as a kid person, but he and Charlotte took to each other immediately. Now they have a really cute little bond.

“She is. But I don’t get why you’re hiding.”

“I’m fucking exhausted,” he says. “I can’t perform on command just because her temperature is right. It’s like she doesn’t care whether or not I’m in the mood, she just wants me to give it up whenever she snaps her fingers. At first I thought trying to make a baby would be great. Extra sex? Sign me up. But this is getting ridiculous. Does she want me to come home for lunch every day because she misses me? No, she just wants another sperm injection. Same with early mornings, after work, and don’t get me started on weekends. She got in the shower, so I made a break for it.”

I really don’t want to hear about my sister having sex with her husband, but this is kind of hilarious. “So, you’re telling me that you, Weston Reid, found a limit to how much sex you can have?”

“It’s not that.” He shoots me a glare and I think I touched a nerve. “I can as often as she wants. But would it kill her to put in a little effort for me? It’s so clinical. I’m not a piece of meat.”

I can’t help but laugh and he glares at me again. “I’m sorry.”

“I’m being serious,” he says.

“I know, I know.” I stop laughing, but there’s no way this isn’t funny. “Yeah, I bet that’s rough.”

“You have no idea,” he says. “When a woman gets it in her head that she wants to get knocked up, there’s no stopping her. I’m just a dick and a couple of testicles to her lately.”

It’s awful of me, but seeing Weston with bruised feelings is rather amusing. The guy used to be, in Kendra’s words, a total man-whore. I don’t think I want to know how many women he used for sex before he decided to settle down with my sister. It’s funny to see the tables turned on him a little bit.

His phone dings and he groans while he pulls it out. “Oh, great.”

“What?”

“Her cervical fluid is the right consistency,” he says.

I put a hand to my forehead. “I am so sorry I asked.”

He starts typing. “I’m telling her to come here.”

“Uh, you’re not getting your wife pregnant here,” I say.

He glares at me again. “No, I need to distract her for a little while. She hasn’t seen Bug recently anyway.” He looks around as if suddenly noticing the absence of Charlotte. “Where is she?”

“She’s at the park with Linnea, the new nanny. They’ll be home soon.”

Weston nods, then looks at his phone again. “Yeah, she’s coming by. Don’t tell her what I said, though.”

“Don’t worry, that’s not a conversation I want to repeat.”

The front door opens and Linnea and Charlotte come in. Charlotte sees Weston and her eyes light up.

“Uncle Weston!” She rushes over and jumps in his lap.

“Hey, kiddo,” he says.

Linnea comes into the living room. “Oh, hi.”

I introduce Linnea to Weston and she gives him a shy smile.

“I think my sister is coming over too,” I say. “Sorry to inundate you with people so soon.”

“That’s okay,” she says. “But it was hot outside. I’m going to run upstairs and change.”

“Sure, take your time.”

“I’m going to change too,” Charlotte says.

I’m about to tell her she doesn’t need to when I stop myself. There’s no reason to tell her not to change her clothes, and it’s cute to see her copying Linnea.
