Knight – Round 25: ‘Difficulty Levels’

Filed under: Knight — Tags: , , , , , , , — Mao @ 1:16 pm

Kit Knight has been forced to move back into her parents house after the messy end of her relationship to James Anderson.  With her, comes the twins, Nadia and Dominic.  Jennifer never signed up to be a babysitter, Travis thought his baby days were over, but Marla?  She couldn’t be happier.

Marla couldn’t have been happier to have Kit home with her babies.  Sure, their birth wasn’t exactly ideal and their father had no idea and let’s not forget the fact that he’s the son of Gordon Saunders… but whatever.  They were grand babies and they were adorable.

Travis was a little less enthused.  He was looking for peace and quiet… which wasn’t readily available with twins.

“It’s only temporary, dad,” Kit assured him.  “Just until I get back on my feet.  I don’t like this anymore than you do.”

He sighed, “it’s nice to have you home, Kit.  I just wish… you’ve put me in a tight spot here.”

Travis had dealings with Gordon.  It was why he was so successful as the DA.  Kit knew this, but was adamant.

“Claude can’t know.  Not yet.”

“He might not, but Gordon will.  Whether I tell him or not.”

Jennifer wasn’t happy, either.  She never signed on to be an extra babysitter.  She was young!  She didn’t want anywhere near babies right now.  The twins were walking and needing pottytrained.  She wanted to be out with friends.

Needless to say, Jennifer left home early and fled to college.

Kit was finding that even with her parents help, raising twins wasn’t easy.  She was exhausted all the time.  She rarely ever saw adults outside of her own family.  She loved the twins, she did, but sometimes she just wanted to get away and be free for awhile.  It was hard.  She’d have to swallow it down and not let them see it, lest they think they were some horrible mistake.

Even if they were, Kit didn’t want them to feel that burden.

She did her best not to rely too heavily on her parents for help.  She wanted to prove to them she wasn’t a huge screw up, though she hadn’t done such a great job of that so far.  She taught the twins to walk, talk, and use the potty.  She even took care of their evening bathes.  The only time her parents stepped in were to cuddle and coo, or watch them while she went to work.

Sade eventually came over to cheer her up, though she was busy with her own set of twins.  Kit had no idea how she did it.  But then again, she had Michael.  Kit still couldn’t quite figure that out, why someone like Michael would be so completely infatuated with someone like Sade.  It just didn’t make sense.

“You look rough,” Sade said, giving her friend a once over.  “How long has it been since you got a full night’s rest?”

“Thanks, but it’s been awhile.”

“Are you going to tell him?”  Sade watched her friend carefully and followed up with, “he has a baby now, you know, with Emily.”

Kit sighed, “I know and I don’t know if I should tell him now.”

“You should.  Gordon already knows, I think.  He has ways, you know?  You don’t want him with leverage over your head.”

“He’s your father-in-law, Sade!”

Sade gave her a look, “and that’s exactly why I know you don’t want him on your bad side!”

As the twins got older, they came to be even more of a handful.  Nadia was especially difficult, often wandering off and sleeping in the cat beds.  Kit was so exhausted and at her wit’s end.  She counted the days until they could take care of themselves and give her a bit of space.

Of course, the younger years pass by quickly and soon, the twins were ready for school.  There was no denying who their father was, it showed on their faces as plain as day.  Kit was going to have one heck of a time trying to keep them underwraps.


Note from Mao: Poor Kit!  She really isn’t good at this mothering thing.  The twins are SO CUTE!  Sade and Michael also randomly visited, which was hilarious.


  1. The twins are certainly cute, but man, even if she wanted to play it off, there’s no denying that those are Saunders kids. It’s just like Mary trying to hide Sara; it ain’t gonna work.
    Sade sounds like she’s more carefully choosing her words, which is a minor miracle. Kit might as well tell Claude. He deserves to know, even if he wants nothing to do with them, though I doubt that.

    Yeah, you can’t hide that fact at all! I think even Sade knows it isn’t cool to kick someone when they’re down. ;)

  2. LOL, they ran Jennifer off to college! Crying baby twins will do that to ‘ya! ;) But awww, they sure are gorgeous!

    Poor Kit! I know she got herself into this mess, but man, raising twins alone can’t be easy!

    Jennifer was TOTALLY not digging the babies. At all, LOL!

  3. It’s good to see Sade again! How unsettling that he already knows about the twins. Sade’s right, you definitely don’t want to get on Gordon’s bad side!

    Twins don’t always look that alike in this game but Nadia and Dominic really do! Even with their different colouring, you can see it.

    They are really cute kids. I hope they turn into lovely teens. ;)

  4. The twins are adorable, but Fini is right. They have Saunders written all over them!

    It’ll be hard to hide, that’s for sure.

  5. Oh, Kit’s life just sucks. I do not envy her one bit.

  6. Poor Kit, but she kind of did bring it on herself…

  7. The twins are absolutely darling! I love Nadia sleeping in the cat bed, the pajamas are super cute!

    It’s exhausting reading about Kit juggling this motherhood. Crazy how Sade ended up the stable one out of the pair.
