Okay, so here is the third story in the trilogy :) This story was originally entitled Problems, but then i thought that maybe i should try something different. Some of you may not like this, as it takes a turn in which isn't a happy one. I kinda decided on making this story take this turn because i recently found out that my friend and ex boyfriend has been self harming :/ so yeah i'm just not in the best of moods right now, so i guess writing this might help a little. Anyway, this will be the final story in the series, enjoy!

Life Can Do Terrible Things
Chapter 1: Age 2
Okay, so last time we met, I asked the girl of my dreams to marry me. After the whole fiasco with Roscoe and his gang and after Matt and co. had been taken back to the big house, I thought the time was right. I'm guessing you're all wondering what Rosy said. Well….
"Will you marry me?" I asked.
Rosy sat there in shock, he hands clasped over her mouth. She was completely speechless, and I don't blame her. She looked into my eyes as I watched her slowly slide down off the couch so she was kneeling in front of me. She placed her hands on my knee and stared at the ring in the little box in front of her. The ring was gold with a red ruby encrusted into it; little diamonds all around it. Rosy averted her eyes to look into mine and before I knew it, she leaped at me, wrapping her arms around my neck. The sudden movement caught me off guard, causing me to nearly drop the ring, but I didn't.
"Yes, yes I will marry you"
I could feel hot tears running down in between the quills on my back. They weren't sad tears; they were ones of complete shock and happiness. Putting my other knee on the ground, I carefully put the ring down and wrapped my arms around her. Rosy rested her head on my shoulder while I did the same. After a few minutes of that special moment, I picked up the ring and slide it onto her finger. Her eyes sparkled as she admired it.
Back to present time, Rosy and I were in the living room with Crystal and Ember. They had just turned two a few weeks ago and were starting to speak. Crystal had also started to try and walk, which was pretty funny to watch as she keeps falling over.
"Come on Ember, say mama" Rosy cooed to Ember, who was sitting on her lap.
While Rosy was sitting with her twin on her lap, I was lying on my stomach with Crystal on my head. Did I mention she likes to climb? Maybe not. I felt her crawling across the top of my head, watching out for my quills. She eventually found my left ear and decided to take a quite bite.
"Ouch! Crystal!" I yelped.
"Crystal, don't bite your father"
Rosy placed Ember on the floor before grabbing Crystal. I got up off my stomach and shifted so I was on my side; my right arm propping my head up. Crystal was placed beside Ember, who looked at her sister and crawled to her.
Ember had tried to say sister. Her first word was sister! Well her first real word anyway.
"She said sister" Rosy looked amazed.
I was amazed too. We always thought that Crystal would be the first to speak, but looks like Ember is proving us wrong. The twins looked at each other before putting their tiny hands together. They were both the same size and looked exactly the same. The only difference was their eyes. Ember had Rosy's eyes and Crystal had my eyes. The moment between the two sisters was sweet, until Crystal decided to floor her sister. The two twins began to fight, and by the looks of it, Crystal was winning. I looked up at Rosy, who was in shock but also looked at me with a questioning glance.
"What?" I asked raising an eyebrow.
"That's your twin"
Of course Rosy was meaning Crystal. Yeah that's one thing we've realised. Crystal has my personality, which may be a problem. Ember wasn't too bad, she had some of my traits but she mostly had Rosy's which was a good thing. No one wants my personality. Deciding it might be a good idea to break the twins up; I snatched Crystal up and held her in front of my face. She stared at my with her blue eyes, giving me her version of a questioning look.
"No Crystal, don't fight with your sister" I said sternly.
Crystal didn't flinch or even look affected. Yep, she's my twin. I put her down again before looking at the time. It was 9pm and about time the twins went to bed. Rosy looked like she was about to move, but I told her not to.
"Don't, I'll put them to bed tonight, you need to rest and look after number three"
Now you may all be wondering what I mean by that. Well, Rosy's pregnant again! She's due in a few weeks. The pink hedgehog looked at me before giving me a nod. I got to my feet before scooping up the twins. Heading into their room, I placed them down in their own cribs. A third crib was off to the side for when the new baby arrives. Giving them a kiss on the forehead each, I turned on their star nightlight before closing the door and going back downstairs to Rosy. I sat down on the couch next to her and kissed her passionately. He fingers intertwined with mine; I ran my finger over her engagement ring. Yes I proposed two years ago, we're not married yet. We haven't had time as we've been so busy. I pulled her onto my lap, being careful as to not put too much weight on her baby bump. Pulling away for a few seconds, I looked into her shining jade eyes. They were beautiful.
"I love you" She said.
Of course she didn't have to tell me, I already knew that she did.
"I love you too"
"I wonder what the baby is gonna be? Will it be another girl or will it be a boy?" I chuckled.
I wanted to have a boy, but I could settle with another girl. Three daughters for daddy to look after, especially when they get to the age of dating. Them boys better be able to run fast.
"Push Rosy, Push!"
The day had come and Rosy was in labour. Numerous nurses were around her while I held onto her hand for support. As she continued to push, the baby seemed to be getting closer and closer.
I turned to her. She looked like she hadn't slept for weeks and her breathing was really heavy.
"What is it?"
She was sick? I didn't understand what she meant.
"What do you mean?"
"I've been sick for a while. I went to the doctors a few weeks ago…"
"What? Why, I don't understand?"
Fear crept upon me as I took her words in. She couldn't mean…
She gave one last push and the baby was out.
"Take care of Ember and Crystal, and the new baby" She seemed to be getting sleepier and sleepier.
"No, we're in this together" I could feel tears creeping up on me.
I held them back as she pulled my face to hers. She planted her lips on mine before pulling away.
"You were the greatest thing that ever happened to me Scourge….I love you"
No no no no no, this can't be happening. Her eyes slowly closed, and before I could think, I heard the sound that no one wants to hear.
A flat line.
"Rosy…" Her grip on my hand loosened as tears began to fall down my cheeks.
The nurses ushered me out of the room as they tried to calm the situation. I stood there outside the room. Trying to figure out what had just happened. No, Rosy can't be gone. She can't be. I can't look after three kids alone. Taking a seat outside of the room, I hid my face in my hands. The tears dripped down the sleeves of my jacket. A few minutes later, a nurse came out of the room. Looking up at her, I saw the bundle in her arms. The nurse gave me a sorrowful look before handing me the bundle. Taking it in my arms, I looked at the baby.
"It's a boy" She said.
"What happened to Rosy?"
She didn't need to say anything. A simple shake of the head told me the worst had happened. Looking back down at the baby, I noted down his features. He had my fur colour and my eyes. He looked exactly like me.
"Here's something else, you might want to keep it"
I looked back up at the nurse, who was holding out her hand. In her hand, was Rosy's engagement ring. Taking it out of her hand, I placed it into my pocket. The nurse left me alone after that, but a doctor soon joined me.
"I'm so sorry for your loss" He began "Have you thought of a name for the baby?"
Searching through all these names in my head, one popped in out of nowhere.
The doctor noted it down before leaving again. It pained me to think that Crystal, Ember and now Drew, would grow up without their mom. Rosy had always been there for me, and for her to be taken from me so suddenly…
What am I gonna do?
DON'T KILL ME! Yes, Rosy is gone, but as i said, i wanted to take a new turn, Scourge is gonna have to raise the kids alone and we're gonna watch how he does it. Will ge be able to cope? PLEASE REVIEW!
