: The Babysitter
With her clothes unpacked, Serena double checked on the twins, making sure they clothes were
property tucked away in dresser drawers. Olivia was a little more dexterous than Oliver, so she had to
refold a few of Oliver‘s shirts and pants, tucking them neatly away. It had taken them most of the day to
get settled in and organized. Serena liked the house though, and there was plenty of space in the yard
to get a swing set and sand box for the kids. She was looking forward to giving them the opportunity to
run around outside more. It was something werewolf pups enjoyed. “I like it here, Mommy,” Olivia told
her as the three of them headed downstairs. Serena went to the refrigerator to get her children some
juice. The kids were getting hungry. It was close to their dinner time. Serena hadn‘t had a chance to
stock the kitchen, but apparently Adriana had taken care of that. It was the easiest move she‘d ever
done! “It‘s huge!” Oliver said, pulling himself up into a seat at the table. “I like it here too,” Serena
admitted. She gave the kids their juice and started looking for something she could make them for a
snack. She wasn‘t confident in her cooking skills, but she‘d have to feed them. Before deciding on what
to make, the doorbell rang. “Who‘s that?” Olivia asked, standing up on her chair. “Put your butt back in
that chair!” Serena snapped, pointing at it. Oliva plopped back down. “Wait here while I get the door.”
She was concerned Logan had come back, and she didn‘t want him to see the kids. She was still
suspicious about him and how much he recognized her. Even if he didn‘t recognize her, she wondered
if he would recognize the kids! It wasn‘t like they only had her features. Serena looked through the door
window to see who was on the other side. It was a woman she hadn‘t met before, slightly older than
her. She opened the door “Can I help you?” Serena asked, keeping the door half closed. The woman
smiled at her.
“You‘re Serena, right?” she asked. Serena nodded. “I‘m Dana, Adriana sent me over as a babysitter.”
“Babysitter?” Serena asked. “Am I needed at the medical facility?” Dana shook her head. “Oh, no,” she
said with a light laugh. “Adriana said I was to be a live–in nanny, to help with the twins.” Serena
crossed her arms. “I didn‘t ask for that,” she said, wondering why Adriana felt the need to get inter her
business. “No, but she thought you‘d like the extra hands, especially since you‘ll be on call for
emergencies,” Dana said. Serena considered the offer. It was frustrating that Adriana hadn‘t asked her,
but it did make sense. You‘re supposed to live here?” she asked. Dana nodded. “We don‘t really have
more room…” Dana laughed again. “All the refurbished houses have a studio apartment in the
basement,” she said. “When you don‘t need me, you won‘t even know I’m here.” Serena sighed,
opening the door to let Dana in. She wondered why Adriana hadn‘t mentioned that with the tour of her
house, but maybe it was for the better. “Would you like to meet the kids?” Serena asked. “Please,”
Dana said, crossing the threshold. Serena headed back to the kitchen, motioning for Dana to follow.
“Olivia, Oliver,” Serena called them to attention. “This is Dana. She will be staying with us and watching
over you when I need to work.” “Hello there,” Dana said. “Aren‘t you the most adorable twins I‘ve ever
seen. Can I sit with you?” Oliver looked at me, but Olivia took control. “You can sit by me,” she said,
declaring her approval of Dana. Well, if her children approved, there wasn‘t much arguing. “I‘ll get back
to work on that snack,” she said. “How old are you, Olivia?” Dana asked. Serena had her back to them
while she worked at the stove, listening to the conversation. “Five,” Olivia said. “Can we show you, our
“I would love to see your rooms,” Dana said. “I bet you have some fun toys to play with.” “So many,”
Oliver said. He as slower to join the conversation, but Serena could tell he liked Dana too.
“Go upstairs and show Dana your rooms. Your snack will be ready soon,” she said. The pot on the
stove was giving off a strange smell. She didn‘t want the kids around if it was going to get messy. They
wouldn‘t eat it if they thought it smelled bad. Oliver took Dana‘s hand, but Olivia held back. She came
up to her mother’s side. “What‘s wrong, love?” Serena asked. Olivia motioned for Serena to come
closer. Serena took a knee beside her daughter. “Mommy, I think you‘re doing that wrong.” Olivia said.
Serena smiled, placing a hand on her daughter‘s head. “I think I am too,” Serena admitted. “I‘m not
very good at this, am I?” Olivia shook her head. “No,” she said with a soft whisper. Serena laughed,
shaking her head as she rose to her full height “Why don‘t I help with dinner,” Dana said, coming up to
the stove. “I can set this right.” Serena sighed, happily handing over the spoon in her hand. “Thank
you,” she said. Having Dana around wouldn‘t be such a bad idea if it meant she didn‘t have to cook as
much! “Cooking isn‘t so hard,” Dana said. “Olivia, if you could get me that box of pasta on the counter.
Oliver, can you bring over that bowl.” She pointed to the items as she directed the children. Serena was
pleased to see her kids obey without question. They wanted to help! Taking a step back, Serena gladly
gave herself a little break. Dana could keep the kids busy and feed them! She felt odd about having a
stranger living in her basement, but it already seemed to be helping. “Mommy, after dinner can Dana
play with us?” Olivia asked. Serena nodded.
“Yes, you can show her your toys and even do a little dress–up if you
want,” she said.
The phone on the kitchen wall rang, causing Serena to start. She hadn‘t even known she had a land
line. “Hello?” she asked, answering the phone.
“Serena, can you come to the health clinic immediately?” Adriana asked. There was urgency in the
other doctor’s voice. “Is something wrong?” Serena asked. She was supposed to have a week to settle
in, but she knew Adriana wouldn‘t call her in if it wasn‘t an emergency “There‘s been an attack,”
Adriana said breathlessly. In the background, Serena heard people running around, the sounds of
medical equipment being gathered and gúrneys being pushed around. “An attack?” Serena asked. She
was already running back upstairs to change into scrubs, carrying the cordless phone with her.. “Alpha
Logan, Beta Carson, and a convoy was attacked on their way through the northern border of Night Sky
territory,” Adriana explained quickly “Injured?” Serena asked, awkwardly changing while keeping the
phone pinched between her ear and shoulder! “Several,” Adriana said. “I know this is sudden…and
with the kids..“. “No, no, I can be there,” Serena assured. “Dana is already with them.” “Great!” Adriana
breathed out. “Hey! Don‘t block the door, we have more coming in!” Adriana was shouting at someone
in the health clinic. Serena held the phone away from her ear to lessen the loud voice. She grabbed her
stethoscope from the bedside table and looped it around her neck, then pocketed her car keys. She
half hopped down the stairs while stuffing her feet into her comfortable work shoes. Serena was no
stranger to getting ready for a medical emergency. She‘d worked ER rotations in the human world while
in medical school. “I‘m on my way,” she said. “Good, thank you,” Adriana said. She hung up before
Serena had the chance to say goodbye. Whatever had happened, it wasn‘t good!
Serena raced back to the kitchen, practically slamming the phone down on the receiver. “There‘s a
medical emergency at the clinic,” she said. “Are you okay to stay with the kids?” “That‘s why I‘m here,”
Dana said. “Go on, save some lives.” Serena kissed her children goodbye, who were comfortably
eating at the table. Oliver looked nervous at Serena‘s flustered rushing about.
“Do you have to go, Mommy?” Olivia wined. “I do,” she said. “I’ve got to go help some pack members
that are hurt.” Olivia pouted. “Will you be home to tuck us in?” Oliver asked. “I will try,” she said. “Stay
here with Dana, she will play with you and read to you.” I looked at Dana and she nodded in
confirmation. “I love you, babies. I’ll be back as soon as I can,” she assured. They waved goodbye with
spoons. “How do I get to the clinic?” Dana gave her quick instructions, and Serena ran out the front
door, pausing only long enough to make sure it was shut completely.
