Fred reached over and picked up the blue hair clip, and clipped it in Alex's hair so it wasn't falling in her eyes. Today was the bridge presentation, and since Lis and Alex had helped with it, Max had decided to let them help with it. "You nervous, sweetie?" Fred asked as Alex smoothed down the blue and black dress she was wearing.
"Nope!"she said with a grin. "Daddy says this is a lucky dress, which is why he helped me pick it out!"
Chuckling, Fred softly kissed her daughter's forehead. "Go get your bag and we'll head to the daycare," she said. As Alex ran off, Fred stood from the couch and slipped Mere's diaper bag over her shoulder before picked the carrier up. "You ready to go, hon?" She smiled when Mere lazily blinked her eyes and yawned.
Once Alex came back with her bag, Fred went to the door with her kids. I'll see you at the meeting, John, she told her husband before leaving.
When they got to the daycare, Chase hurried over to see CJ while Finn ran up to them. "Guess what! Max letting me help witht he bridge stuff!" he exclaimed before he wrapped his arms around Alex and hopped around with her.
"That's pretty cool, Finn." Fred took Meredith over to Aislin and handed the carrier over. "Bye, hon," she said as she softly kissed the baby. She kissed Chase and Alex goodbye before leaving.
Fred started toward the city's control room since they had a meeting before the presentation. She had just stepped off the transporter when she saw Max walking by. "Hey," she said. "Any idea of what this meeting's about?"
Everyone had become a little worried a few weeks ago when Cait and Carson suddenly left without Rodney and Kade. Rodney became nastier than usual and when Carson and Cait returned, all of them seemed secretive. Whatever was going on, they were going to find out soon since Cait had asked to speak to all of them in private before the presentation.
"I don't know," Max said with a frown. "I tried to talk to Cait yesterday and she didn't seem like she wanted to talk. So I don't know. Hope it's not anything serious."
"Me either," Fred agreed.
When they got to the meeting room, Carson, Rodney, Cait, Kade, Sam and Daniel were already there. Fred gave them all a smile and sat down.
