Babygirl, it's self service. Get your own as big as you want it!
(and the fucked up thing is, I really live in Greeley, CO)
Sleep didn't come easy to either of them that night. David tossed and turned, half ass wishing that one or both of the twins would wake up fussy so that he wouldn't have to just lay there and suffer in silence. Brie was just was restless. She rolled over and looked at her man. He was staring at the ceiling. "What's on your mind, honey?" she asked him.
"I want it to end", he replied.
"You want what to end, David?"
"The war. All of the wars. I speak out against this shit for a reason. Because it's all bullshit. I hate this constant lying from our government, and now to find out that the Establishment's headquaters is underneath a GOVERNMENT building makes me sick. This is never going to end."
She tucked herself against his side and nuzzled her face in his neck. "We take them out, one small faction at a time and we don't stop until their all eradicated. It's factions like the Establishment that are taking away our God given RIGHTS as citizens of this country. Your employers have been using to amass an army, right?"
"Yes. Why?" He turned his head to look at her.
"Then DO IT! Use your gift with words to tell the people of the injustices that are happening in this world... in this country. Tell people the story of Irian, my alter ego. Tell them what you feel."
He thought for a moment. "You know what? You're right." He had conviction in his voice for the first time in what seemed like ages. "We may have to stay underground physically, but that doesn't mean that we have to musically."
"No, David, it doesn't. It just means that you can't go around the world and spread the message personally. But, you have hundreds of THOUSANDS of fans all over the globe. Forget trying to impress the people that hand out Grammy's. Fuck them and the rest of the Academy. Do what YOU do. Speak your mind and don't hold you tongue. That's the David I know and fell in love with, not this worn out husk of a man that you've become. I know that having new babies is hard on a couple. Hell, it's been difficult on everyone in the house. But, don't you want a world for your children where they don't have to be afraid to be individuals? Where they can speak their minds and NOT have someone try to exterminate them for what they believe?"
"That's exactly what I want for our children."
"Then do what you do best, my love. Speak out against what you see happening in our world. Speak up and make your voice heard to the masses as yo always have. Don't let the conformists have their way. Be the mighty, powerful, outspoken man I fell in love with. And, someday, maybe not tomorrow, or next week, or even a year from now, but someday, this world will be what we want for our children."
He kissed her in the head. "That's why I love you, you know. You speak your mind. You are the only woman I know that has to balls to tell me that I'm whining and I actually listen to you."
"I'm glad you're listening to me, because if you weren't I'd have to kick your ass."
He laughed. "Let's try to get some sleep."
When the sun came up the next morning, David and Brie were already up. They weren't tending the twins, or cooking breakfast for then entire household, but they were working out. Brie had gotten tired of carrying around the excess baby weight from the twins, though, they later found out that she HAD been carrying triplets. Only Jacob and Jordan survived. The other child hadn't made it out of the second trimester.
Around 7:00am that morning, David went through house making all kinds of noise to get everyone up. Brie laughed. "Blowing revelie, my dear?"
"Yeah, I want to get some work done. Danny, Mikey, and John need to get up, get woke up and we need to head downstairs to the studio. I have some shit in mind that I need to get on tape."
"I'm glad you're getting back that conviction. I thought I'd lost you there for a minute."
"There for a minute, you did. You lost the real me, but after that talk we had last night, I'm back and I'm ready to go." He went to Dan and Nicole's room and started making noise. "Get up, Danny, you can sleep when you're dead. Let's go!" Similar things were said in Mike and John's rooms.
Everyone trudged down the stairs. "What crawled up his ass this morning?" Tina asked.
"He's back to his old self", Brie said with a prideful smile on her face.
"Drink some coffee, boys, we have work to do. Ladies, if you don't mind, please fix some breakfast. Your men need to eat before I lock them in the basement with me all day."
"My goodness, David. What's come over you?" Kristen asked.
"The real David has come back. I haven't lost hope. I lost faith in the cause for a moment, but I haven't lost hope. This WILL come to an end... even if we have to do it ourselves." He wrapped his arms around Brie and kissed her on the neck. "I just needed a little inspiration."
