She smiled, her heart warming as they walked along with their children. Johana spent most of her time when they arrived at the river taking pictures of the boys playing with their dad. They all looked so happy and she couldn't wait to make a scrap book of it for them to keep forever. Scrapbooking hadn't interested her in the slightest before kids but now she loved it and had a book shelf dedicated to them. It wasn't incredibly full yet but she knew by the time they were grown she might even need another. That night just the boys slept in their fort. Neek wanted to just be with his wife for a little bit and the boys didn't seem disappointed at all but they were normally happy children. They had the same easy nature their father had.
"could we soak again? I'm sore from hiking all day"
"If you're sore, you just take the tub and I'll pour you some wine. While you relax I can check the ship. If I'm taking you three away from the planet I want to inspect it closely" She kissed his cheek "are you sure? I can help you after we both soak"
"No, you know its better with just one person if you're doing it because you hurt. You're always taking care of the boys, you definitely pull more weight than I do when it comes to them so please, soak, enjoy some wine and let me tend to the ship on my own quickly"
"Okay, just make sure Iseul doesn't sneek out after you. Anything could get him in the dark"
"Not while I'm out there. I promise I will make sure neither of the boys leave the house" Johana ran herself a bath while Neek went to the kitchen to pour her a glass of wine. When he brought it to her she was already covered in water and bubbles "thank you Neek"
"Thank you for being such an amazing wife and for giving me those boys in there"
"I'm incredibly happy" He sat there with her a few moments before going to his boys to see if Baek was still awake "Hey"
"hey dad, didn't you and mom go to bed?"
"Not quite yet, I need to go check the ship if I'm taking you three up. You boys need to stay inside."
"I'll make sure Iseul doesnt try to follow you"
"You're a good big brother Baek" Neek was as quick as he could possibly be while still making sure he checked absolutely everything. He even double checked the child safety mechanisms he had added to the ship since Iseul was still so young. Once comforted that his family would be safe he returned to Johana, happy to find her reading, still soaking in their bathtub.
