“Great, now I feel old.”
Rain chuckled at his mother's reaction, adjusting his hold on his infant daughter in his arms, rocking the little blonde to sleep.
“Oh come on Mom, Jivana and I have been married for five years. Surely you knew that you'd be a grandma at some point.”
It was quite true. After Rain had welcomed his beloved into the future world, he was there to help her get settled. The Estheims enrolled her in highschool, and between taking a few college classes of his own, Rain was beside her to help her gain the knowledge she needed.
