Katai sat in her chair, coughing faintly. Looking away from the young charges she was meant to be discussing things with.

Jac sat next to her, taking one of Katai's hands and giving it a gentle squeeze. The girls were understandably confused. She had never gathered them together to talk like this before.

Alex was looking at Katai, trying to puzzle out why she was acting strangely. Alena doesn't seem concerned, but it seems like she wants to be somewhere else else. Somewhere quiet to read, in all likelihood. Lily just keeps looking between Katai and her mother, unsure.

"Girls, Katai and I have something we want to talk to you about."

"Yes," Jac agreed, glancing at Katai before turning her attention back to the girls.

"What?" Alex asked, curious.

"It's not going to happen right away, but we wanted you to know what we were planning." Jac looks at Katai again. She wants her to be at least moderately comfortable around her children before they bring another one in to the world. "Katai and I have decided that we want to have a baby."

Lily looked between the two of them. "Sister?"

"Right. She's a different kind of sister, but she'll still be your sister. That's what's important."

"When's she gonna get here?" Alex asked.

"Well, we don't really know right now, sweetheart. There are a lot of things we have to plan for before we talk about that." She looks at Katai. "It's a big responsibility."

Jac wants their daughter to have a good relationship with both of her parents. She'll help Katai as much as she can to make that happen, but Katai does need to learn some things first. Interacting with the other three children is a good first step. It needed to be done anyway. The girls aren't going anywhere.

Of course not, but their presence means Katai has to learn how to interact with children regardless of whether they plan to have one of their own.

Jac nods, agreeing. "Right, sometimes these things take a while. And then she has to grow a little bit before she's born. Just like when we were waiting for Lily, remember?"

Alex nods. "Uh-huh. Lily was in your tummy."

"That's right, and it will be the same with your new cousin." Jac's assuming she'll be the one carrying the child. "In the meantime, if you have any questions, you can ask one of us about it, okay?"

She gives Katai's hand a gentle squeeze. Jac will help answer those questions as best she can, but she wants the girls to know they can talk to Katai too.

Jac frowns a bit, if she wanted to carry the child instead, she wouldn't have a problem with it. She just assumed because Katai only ever talked about getting her pregnant. "We'll have to talk about it," she says, squeezing Katai's hand again.
