3 months ago. Oh Watcher. It was everything I’d ever wanted, the wedding. More than that… we were trying to get pregnant.
At first I was weary of the idea, but I knew neither of us were getting any younger, my husband-Watcher…my husband especially. He told me before the wedding just how close he was to becoming an elder. I told him it didn’t matter, but I knew if he wanted a chance to see his kids to ever reaching childhood, we’d have to start soon, not like I was young either. I assured him once more that it was ok, and I wanted kids too…I have for my whole life. Also, my brother’s family is moving out. After the twins- the newborn twins, Scott and Savannah-were born, they decided that they were going to leave, make room for my family. I didn’t want them to go, but I understood.
After running to the toilet for the fifth time that day, almost losing my lunch, I was considering the possibility that I really was pregnant. We’d only been trying for a few months now and I’d figured, with our ages, it would take longer. Part if me had been ready to wait years. It truly would be a miracle if I was already pregnant. I bought about every type of pregnancy test I could find. After staring at my sixth positive test, I realized that I was crying. I’d wanted this for so long. Now…it was real.
“Derek, I gotta tell you something.”
I clasped my hands together, filled with happiness. “I’m having your baby.”
“You’re pregnant?” I nodded, smiling. He pulled me closer. “I love you, Selena. This is amazing.”
I woke up in excruciating pain. I thought labor wasn’t for 9 months! Getting out of bed, I suddenly realized I was bleeding. My mind scrambled for words. What was going on?
“Derek!” I yelled. “I think something’s wrong with the baby.”
A/N: Sorry for such a short chapter… but I love cliffhangers…sorry… next chapter will be longer.
