| 2 Days Later |

Maddox had his mother flown in to visit with the new additions. She was in the kitchen cooking while Maddox got things for the babies together. He was just in sweats and some Nike flops, freshly shaven, “momma, you almost done? They should be here any moment and you know you can’t cook when you’re too excited.”

“I know, I know. I’m almost finished. Rushing!” She laughed, “I’m a great grandmother … Oh my goodness.” Checking everything one more time, she turned the food off and rushed to refresh herself.

He laughed, “no perfume! It’s not a date!” He said too late.

“I’m nervous and rushing. Leave me alone!”

Maddox shook his head as the door bell rang. Before the door was opened, Lucky stood patting the crying baby he was holding while jiselle fished through his backpack for a bottle, "i know you better hurry up."

"Did you even pack a bottle, smart one?" She joked and took one as the door opened. She quickly handed it over and smiled

"Aww, give him here..." Maddox kissed Jiselle and then hugged Lucky while taking Brandon from him and them the bottle from Elle, "you guys are just in time, i got a special guest here with us." He led them in.

Jiselle gasped, "is it Alexander Skarsgard?"

"Why on earth would he be here?" He shook his head, "momma, they're here."

"Oh," she blushed, "I just ..." Shaking her head

"HIIIIIIIII," Lynn coasted towards them

"Grandma!" Lucky swooped in before Jiselle, hamming it up like his father, he hugged Lynn tightly.

"Wow," Jiselle rolled her eyes, "what a kiss up."

"Look at this boy. My grandson ... And my granddaughter ... How beautiful you two are," she began to get teary eyed.

"Ma c'mon, no tears!" Maddox yelled.

"Its so nice to meet you grandma," Jiselle finally got a hug in.

"Thank you ... I'm so excited," she wiped her tears and looked at the babies with them, "these precious things. Come in, come in. Lunch is ready ..." She closed the door and walked them through with Maddox to get the meeting started.

"Please, excuse your grandmother, she's always been this emotional."

"Stay out of this!" Lynn joked and sat next to Jiselle to play with the baby she had with her. "Now tell me all about her."

| Later |

They ate and talked the entire afternoon. By the time evening rolled around, Lynn was walking around the house rocking Carmen, who was sleepy because her bedtime was approaching. Lucky was leaned back on the couch with his kid on his arm already asleep.
Maddox walked into the living room from loading the dishes up, "i have spare rooms if you want to stay. I'm sure grandma Lynn wants tip cook you breakfast anyways..."

"We hadn't planned on it ..." Lucky said

"I have rehearsal at 9." Jiselle went to give him a hug. "Next time? Or, when is grandma leaving?"

"We can come by for breakfast Monday morning."

"She's here until Tuesday night, so perfecy,"he then hugged lucky.

"We'll see you Monday. Can it be early? 7:30?" Lucky hugged him, then held up the baby to slobber on Maddox's face.

Maddox laughed, "yea that's fine, momma And i usually go for a walk at 6am anyways.." He have the twins one final hug and then lead them out the door.

| Thursday Night |

The twins did end up having breakfast with Lynn and their dad, but Tuesday was one of 3 days he was at the Madison square garden which was sold out. After the show, the twins, and Gigi met Maddox back stage. Maddox sat in a chair wiping himself with a towel, looking to his right he saw them walk in, "yo!" He smiled and stood, "gimme love."

"Nice show," jiselle went to him first, "dads got swag."

"He alright." Lucky chuckled.

Gigi walked in and stayed back. She enjoyed the concert and that would be enough for her. 'No fraternizing with Elle and Luckys dad.' She knew where her loyalties laid and they weren't with this match making her brother and sister was trying. "Traitors," she mumbled to herself, then walked around looking at stuff.

"Damn right been that way all my life. Hey Gigi, how'd you like it?" he looked over the twins.

"It was awesome. Some of my friends had tickets but not like what we had ... They're gonna be so jealous. Thank you."

"You're welcome sweetheart. I actually have a memorabilia pack for you." He grabbed the basket, "feel free to share it with your friends."

Her eyebrows went up, "shut ........ Up." He handed it to her and she thanked him, "yes! Thank you so much!"

"Just made her year," lucky out his arm around her.

"He really did but i'm not sharing," she smiled.

"The choice is yours," he laughed, "take pictures with me guys?"

Gigi clapped and went to sit directly next to him. She needed something to post on Facebook after all. The first picture was taken, then she moved out of the picture to take the pictures for him and the twins. Gigi confined herself to the corner to dig through the stuff he'd given her, giving the twins room with Maddox.

"Where you goin next?" Lucky asked

"I'm here in new york for 3 nights then 3 days off and then head to Maryland. On the third night, it'll be recorded and shown on hbo," he pulled them closer as his official photographer began to snap pictures.

"Fans are going crazy," his photographer chuckled while he took the pictures, "Maddox Ames finding his children after 25 years ..." He snapped more, then started packing up his camera

"All good talk i hope..." He smiled.

"The good, the bad and the ugly," he told him, then left out.

 "We don't read that mess," jiselle assured him

 "I do." Gigi kept on looking through her stuff

"Of course you do, what do they say?" Maddox asked actually curious.

"Of course super fans are calling my mother all kind of things because she hid your children from you until you hit the billion dollar mark." She rolled her eyes, "others are in denial because you're not old enough to be a dad and others say they're yours because they look like you and mom didn't know who's they were until they DID start to look like you. It's disgusting and pisses me off."

"Yea that's not fair. I'll release a statement."

"Cool." She nodded.

"I'm gonna drop Gigi off at home," Lucky stood up, "and I'll meet you at the restaurant for dinner." Looking at Jiselle, "staying?"

"Yes! I'll wait and ride with him." Jiselle responded.

As Gigi and Lucky left, Maddox was asked to do an interview. He knew exactly how it would go since so many pics of him and the twins were floating around, "Maddox Ames it is wonderful to  finally meet you."

"You too miss, thank you."

"And what a surprise to have your daughter with you. How does it feel? Becoming a dad at 43?"

"Honestly, it was the happiest day of my life when i found out. Also, to find that they are so much like me is awesome."

"What's next for you after this tour has ended? You have almost a new family to get to know. I'm sure that's on your short list." She got to the point, "is their mother here at the show also?"

"No she stayed home, its just my kids and i tonight."

"You have a huge fan base who is really interested in this woman. What can you tell us about her? Is she supportive of your relationship with twins after 2 and a half decades have passed?"

He smiled instantly, "she's still, to this day, one of the most amazing women i know. She allows me to be a father and stays out of the way. I wish it wasn't like that at all."

Laughing a little, "you want her to be in the way?"

"Absolutely..." He smiled, "she's beautiful. Plus the kids like her," he joked.

Jiselle chuckled as did the interviewer, "on to the show ... Any special plans for the HBO taping?"

"Now THAT, you'll just have to find out on your own." He laughed.

Undercover Superstar - Chapter 8

| 1 Week Later |

Janine had spoken to Maddox each day and had some girl time with Tarin. Still, she had yet to deal with KB. However, things were about to change. She'd found out a certain person was going to be in New York. She met with him and practically begged him to listen to KB's demo. After all ... She knows music and all he needed was a shove in the right direction. Now it was time to get KB out to meet him himself. She went to his apartment and knocked. Seconds later, Lana answered, "hi," Lana smiled.

Janine's eyes widened a little, then she grinned, "yo ... Uh ... KB here?" Janine walked in just as she'd always done.

"Yea, in his music room..." She crossed her arms over her chest smiled softly.

Janine took off to the room and let herself in, "go get dressed. We gotta go."

"What are you doing here?" He continued to write.

"I've come to pick you up. This is how I apologize. I love you. You know that. I didn't mean to piss you off but I felt how I felt. I'm sorry you got hurt. But right now ... We have 45 minutes to get to this meeting. Please go get dressed."

"what meeting?"

She smiled, "can it be a surprise? You won't be sorry. I'll go wait in the living room while you get dressed in something proper."

"You're not fucking me over are you?"

She bit back the curse word she was about to let loose, "GET DRESSED!" Then waltzed out and sat on the couch to wait.

Kb rolled his eyes and just got dressed. Lana came in the room with him, he looked at her, "hey..."

"Where are you off to? I thought you were writing?" Lana sat on his bed.

"Yea, but apparently, she has some huge meeting for me that's urgent. I don't know."

"Maybe you should ask more about it. In case she just wants take you and Tarin out for lunch. Because if that happens, you'll be upset."

"Its fine, she wouldn't do that knowing how much she pissed me off."

"She apologized, though. And," Lana sighed, "she's important to you."

"Yea, she is..." He nodded.

Shrugging, "work it out, then. I'll be here when you get back."

Janine smiled when lana came back in the living room, "Is nappy head done yet?" She looked at the clock on her phone.

Lana tilted her head, expecting an apology out of Janine, "no," she sighed, "not yet."

"Ok," Janine got up to pace around some, looked at the clock again, "KEITH, I'LL BE DOWNSTAIRS IN THE CAR!" Then huffed and looked at Lana, "have a good day." Then left.

Lana officially had zero respect for Janine. A woman who is that stubborn and can't even apologize for when she was wrong. Gross. Lana walked to Keith's room, "your friend is in the car," she paused, "i think I'm going home, text me when your done?"

"Ok," he kissed her, "i will," he grabbed his wallet and the left together.

Janine saw them come down, then quickly ended the call with Tarin and unlocked the door when Keith approached, "don't you smell sassy," she smiled.

"Thanks..." He buckled up

"So ... Got Lana back. You're a happy man. Miss me?"

"No I'm still pissed. Let's not talk about her, don't even ask. In fact, let's not talk about any relationships. You don't care to get to know someone I'm dating, I'm straight on anyone you and Tarin are dating. Especially if you want to get advice. I'm not your go to guy for that whiny girl bullshit anymore."

"So ..." She said calmly, "you're going to maintain this anger towards me? A person you've known for fucking ever ... But be kissy face with this heffa you met 14 minutes ago." Nodding, "what do you want from me? I apologized to you ... I'm nice to her ... You're picking her over me! I'm the nice one ... I've always been nice to her and will remain nice to her. But, I'M NOT KISSING HER ASS!"

"Where the FUCK do you get that I'm picking sides. Anyone can spot a fucking phony smile and wave. You're right we have known each other forever, and you should respect the fact that i really care about Lana, instead you and Tarin act like y'all are experts on relationships, when Tarin never had a man, and you're sitting here trailing behind a fucking womanizing superstar!"

"Trailing behind him?" She laughed, "please ..." Janine shook her head, "would you rather me scowl at Lana or try to be nice as i have been?"

"I'd rather talk about something else. Lets just get to where we're going."

Janine rolled her eyes but kept driving. Once they got to a studio parking lot, Janine pulled KBs demo CD from her glove compartment and they went inside. "Look at you in your aqua," Janine smiled at Cee-Lo and hugged him, "thank you for seeing us. Him." She pointed to Kb, "Keith Brownstone."

Keith's eyes widened, "wow, Ceelo, it's a pleasure," he shook his hand.

"Same here. Let's sit down and talk. Janine blew up my phone but she has a good ear so ..." They sat down and Janine handed over the cd. They put it in and played it.

Kb sat there looking around as everyone listened do his demo, he was nervous as hell. The song they listened to was called 'Carry You.' A song about a man carrying his woman through any situation in life so its easier for her to live. It was funky, young and such a lively track. When the bridge hit ceelo began to really bob his head.

Janine stood back out of the way texting, then speaking to the others in the room. Once they'd gone through 3 full tracks, ceelo stopped it and Janine told him, "that's my baby ... Be gentle but make sure the contact is generous," she winked at kb.

"Janine told me a lot about you, man," ceelo started, "made me watch performance videos of local shows you did, YouTube videos, the whole nine." He paused, "i'm convinced. You need to be on my team."

"Man, that means so much to me, I've been trying to get a chance like this for the longest. I really appreciate it," then looked to Janine, "thanks a lot."

Janine smiled at him and Cee-Lo kept on, "I'm performing in 2 weeks at The Suite and I want you to be my opener. Bring that band I saw, they're good"

"You got it, sir, absolutely..."

"I got your info from Janine. We'll talk in a few days and look at the contract," he stood up and shook his hand again, then hugged Janine.

Janine smiled, walking in silence as the two of them went back in the car. Janine pulled off, saying nothing still. Just smiling.

"i love you so much..." Was all Keith could say.

Janine turned her lip up and swooped her bangs out of her face before turning the corner. "Do we get to celebrate?"

"Yea,  i could go for a drink before my vocals are on lock down."

"Get home. Tell Lana to get dressed, I'll call Tarin, and we can go out. Good?" God, it pained her to have to include Lana, but this was his moment.

"No, it can be just you and me, I'm definitely not ready to kick it with Tarin right now."

Janine nodded, "anywhere you want to go. My treat," she smiled, "I'm proud of you."

"I dont care. You pick." He smirked as the two discussed a place to go.

Undercover Superstar - Chapter 7

| Much Later |

The driver had driven around until they were finished, and then he headed to maddox's estate in the hamptons, which wasn't too far since the driver had been going in that direction anyways. Fastening his pants, Maddox pulled a cigar from a secret compartment and rolled the window down a little, "was it as good for me as it was for you?" He joked hardly smiling.

She chuckled, "yes. If I were a smoker, I'd have one with you."

He nodded, "you impressed me, wasn't as vanilla i assumed you would be." He put the cigar out after a few more puffs

She turned her lip up at him and pulled her blazer closed, "you thought I was square."

"You seemed like such a good girl, i didn't know how nasty you could get," he popped a few mints, "I'm gonna have some fun with you."

"I am. And now I wish I had clothes ..." She chuckled.

"i got you covered."

"That ... I appreciate," she took a breath, then leaned back.


Not long after, they arrived at Maddox's. They were let out and went inside, Janine holding her purse and the blazer closed, "are you sure you don't want me to cook?" She said once they went inside.

"Naw, I'll just put an order in with the cook," Maddox sent a text to the kitchen and led Janine to the bathroom.

"Yes!" Janine was excited to get in the shower after the car ride over. When she was there before, she never went inside Maddox's bedroom so the multiple jets in the shower made her giggle. "This reminds me of when I got a detachable shower head at my apartment ... I really thought I was moving up in the world."

"Right." He shook his head as he peeled off his and snatched her by her collar and pecked her on her lips and then removed her clothes and then pushed her toward the shower."

They showered and jacked around, after Janine dried off, she brushed her teeth and dug through her purse and combed her hair then waited for the magical clothes Maddox had for her.

"Follow me..." He walked off, naked as shit, he didn't give a fuck about it. It was his place. They walked clear over to the other side of the estate, and he walked her to a room that look like it was for a girl, he pushed her toward the closet, have at it.

"Aren't you nice," Janine shook her head and went through the stuff, she found underwear and a nightgown.

"The sweetest in the business..." He smirked, "i like you... I've decided." He spoke randomly.

"It was only a matter of time," she rubbed his abs and walked passed him.

"That's kind of a big deal, you know that right?"

"Yes. Now come on, naked ass, let's go sit and talk. Your hang time," she pointed to his Dick, "is distracting."

"Feel free to touch it whenever u want," he gripped her ass, "so, have you ever had shooting lessons?"

"It's been years since I've touched a gun. It was a hunting rifle when I was around 10."

His smile got big, "we're going tomorrow, I'm a gun man, and I'm a damn good shot. I never miss."

"Really? I never would have thought," they sat on his bed after walking back over there, "I know a little about guns but nothing substantial."

"I'll teach you... Then we'll get you licensed."

"Cool. Now ..." She laid back and propped one leg up while the other hung off the side of the bed, "you like me," then looked at him.

"Yea... It took a whole year."

"Doesn't matter how long it took. You were on tour and getting served 10 ways from Friday."

He nodded, "i had to keep my sanity, thats the only way i was able to respect your space or i would've taken you down ages ago."

"You wouldn't have."

"I'll let you have it. Women say it until they are put into that position, so... If it makes you feel better."

"It does make me feel better because I believe it to be true. Nobody gets between my legs until I decide to let it happen. I get that you're all-confident, but so am I." She rolled over and kissed the corner of his mouth, then moved to the head of the bed and pulled the covers back.

He laughed, "mhm... Aren't you hungry? I had the chef make you a Greek salad , in case.." He robbed his hands up her thigh and back down.

"Ooo I'll take it." She got out of bed.

Just as they sat in their seats in the kitchen a couple of guards came in, "there's been a breach of security, Doc."

Janine caught the name and raised her brow. Maddox nodded and looked to Janine, "stay put, ok? I'll be right back."

"Okay ..." She looked a little funny, but ate and stayed put as they rushed out wondering why they called him Doc and what the fuck of going on.

Maddox rushed with his men, the area where some men had already been making their way toward, in the process he was handed a bullet proof vest and a gun, as they could heat distant shots clearlwy where the breach happened. Cocking his gun, getting to the door, he peeked in and motioned for the guards to get behind him. He knew exactly where to go, who the intruders were. Seconds later, he stepped from around the corner and just unloaded. It was astonishing to see him in action, as he ran out of bullets, he tucked and rolled, side swiping the last standing invader, and putting that nigga to sleep in one punch. A little winded, he motioned for one of his men to clean the mess up and another to put the guy he knocked out in an underground cell, "i knew shit was quiet for a reason. What the fuck are all of you doing. I told you what i wanted my night to look like and you mythbusters let this shit happen?! Look about to finish my fuckin steak, get this shit spotless!"

Maddox tore off his vest, and tossed yhe gun to the ground for them to pick up. He headed back to janine, "hows that salad?" He knew she couldn't hear any shooting from the kitchen so he carried on like nothing happened.

"Its great. So do i ask the obvious questions or leave it alone?"

"Leave it."

"Not even of i make an absurd pouty face?" She grinned.

"I imagine that to be really cute, but, sweetheart, no..." He paused, "but I'll answer anything else."

"Then let's talk about this gun thing. When I was younger, I had a very hard time holding a regular hand gun. Is their any way I can be upgraded to something big? The kickback makes me feel like a badass."

"We'll start small and take steps up. Can't jump into the big guns just yet."

"But I'm awesome ... Fine," she kept eating.

"Awesome and very small, lets work up to it. Do you want kids?"

"Yes. At least 2. You?"

"5." He finished chewing the bite he just took.

"I'm actually not surprised."

"Oh yeah?" He brought her chair close to him.

"Would you adopt?"

"If i couldn't have kids, but as long as I'm producing, that's not the route I'm taking."

"What if your wife can't have any more?"

"What? That would suck but I guess I'd have to."

"Just checking," she smiled, "can you cook?"

"Ok, and to answer your question I'm a boss in the kitchen."

"Is their anything you can't do?"

"Uhh, I cant sew, or drive a stick."

"I can sew enough to put a button back on a blouse ... I can drive a semi," she smiled.

"Good for you.." He smiled.

"Shut up ... Eat your food and let's get to business."


"The Business," she nodded and stuck her hand under the table, grabbing his junk.

He immediately smiled, chuckled even, "now you gonna just use me?"

"Of course not. I would never do such a thing!"

"Yeah yeah yeah, what's your biggest fear?"

"That I'll end up being 40 years old and unmarried with 5 cats or I'll be 40 years old and married to someone I settled for just because I didn't want to be that 40 year old cat lady. I'm too picky so being 40 and alone is a reality I face unless I settle for whatever," she paused, "I don't like being alone."

A faint smile appeared on his face. "The only thing/person I fear is God himself. Everything else is nothing. Dying young, being alone, all that crap that doesnt matter. As long as I'm alive with roof over my head, a full stomach and my guns. I'm good. If i have a lovely woman to accompany me through it all, that would be nice too."

"That would be nice too," she laughed again, "you're a mess, but you're cute."

"Cute? Janine, I'm a grown man, I'm not cute."

"What you said ... Not you. Get off your high horse, Madonna."

He busted out laughing, "i love fuckin with that woman so much." He nodded, "the simple things in life."

Maddox emptied his plate as well, "time for a nap."

"That's right ... Your catnapping," Janine left the kitchen and up to the bedroom.
