A/N: I DON'T own Heartland…If I did. Ty and Amy would be engaged by now! Haha. But yes I don't own it… :(
I saw the doctor come out with his clipboard and I rushed over to him. "How is she?"
"She and the baby are perfectly fine. She had very low blood sugar; she needs to be well rested. She can go home now." He had me sign the papers and I went to get my baby.
"Ty." She smiled "Can we go home?"
"Yes. I love you." I kissed her and helped her get up
I looked in the finished nursery and smiled…in 4 months we will have a screaming little one keeping us up at night. We are having a little girl; we planned to name her Sarah Joy. Sarah Joy Borden. The nursery was a horse themed nursery…it was beautiful. Ty spent hours working on it; it was actually good for a boy or a girl.
Ty was at Heartland checking on the horses while everyone was at Mallory's show. We've still been getting that monthly check and still have no idea who it's from…
Suddenly pain jolted in my stomach. It went away…then came another. I can't be in labor I still have 4 months! I grabbed my phone and dialed Ty. "Hey Amy." He answered
"Ty…something's wrong." I told him. "I think I'm…in labor." I said as the pain let up
"You can't be! I'm on my way." He hung up
It took him what felt like forever to get to the house and get me in the car. While we were in the car he called Jake.
"Jake, when you get this you and Mallory please come to the hospital, Amy's in labor." He said
"Everything's going to be just fine." He kissed my hand
Mallory won the completion yet again and we were on our way home when I checked my phone. "Hey Mal, would you listen to this voicemail?" I asked her
"Yeah." She punched in the password and put the phone to her ear. "Oh no." she whispered
"What's wrong?" I asked
"Go to the hospital…drop me off and take Copper home…Amy's in labor." She told me worry etched in her features
"What she can't be!" I said
"I know…that's why the emergency." She said
I hurried in the emergency room doors. I walked up to the desk, "Amy Flemming." I said to the lady
"Relation?" the older lady asked me
"Sister." I fumbled out
"Room 348." She said. I hurried to the elevator to the 3rd room and saw Ty pacing out in the waiting area. "Ty! How is she?" I asked rushing over to him
"I don't know…they won't tell me! They won't let me see her." I saw a doctor come out of the room and come to Ty.
"Mr. Borden…I'm sorry to tell you…the baby was stillborn…Amy is fine, but we couldn't save her." He told Ty
"Does…does Amy know?" Ty asked tears spilling from his eyes
"We thought it would be best for you to tell her…you can go see her." The doctor said walking away
"Ty…I'm so sorry." I said and embraced him in a hug "This shouldn't have happened…you were supposed to be happy and be a family…" I was crying to. I saw Jake rushing towards us "What happened?" he asked
"The baby…didn't make it." Ty said then started towards Amy's room "Do you want us to come?" I asked
"Please…" he said wiping his tears so Amy wouldn't know
We walked in the room to see Amy slowly waking up. "Ty? Where am I? What happened?"
"Amy…baby…I need to tell you something…" the tears welled up in his eyes
"Ty…" she cried "Where's our baby?" she asked. He couldn't meet her eyes
"They couldn't…save you both." He struggled out
"Not Sarah…please no…"she buried her head in Ty's neck "Shhhh…I know baby I know." They were both crying. Jake and I slipped from the room and I grabbed my phone and dialed Lou's number
"What are you doing?" Jake asked me
"They need to know." I told him as I hit call
I heard my phone ring from across the room and grabbed it before Katie could wake up. "Hello." I whispered shutting Katie's door
"Lou…" It was Mallory. She sounded like she was crying
"Mallory! What's going on?" I asked
"I thought you should know...we are at the hospital…the baby was stillborn…" My world came crashing down…I have treated Amy awful…and now she…she lost her baby…the heartache she must be feeling right now
"Lou? You there?" she asked
"Yeah…how…how is she?" I asked
"They aren't doing well…" She said "I have to go…I'll see you tomorrow." She hung up
I sat slowly down on Peter and I's bed and just stared at the phone in my hands. "Baby? What's wrong?" I looked up to see Peter come in
"That…that was Mallory, Amy and Ty lost the baby." I told him "She thought we should know…I…" I was at a loss for words. "I have to tell grandpa." I got up and headed for the barn
"Lou!" Peter called
"Grandpa!" I called into the barn
"Lou? What is it?" he asked
"Mallory called…Amy's in the hospital…she went into early labor and the baby was stillborn." I told him
He didn't answer. "Grandpa? What are you thinking?" I asked
"She shouldn't have gone and did what she did in the first place." He threw the brush on the floor and stormed out
**1 week later**
I engraved the date into the cross and we were finished. I looked back at the small pink cross. It read:
Sarah Joy Borden
October 21, 2012
I sighed and laid my head back against the chair and started to cry. I lost my baby girl…I got up and walked to the closed door and slowly opened it. The beautifully painted walls and furniture…that isn't going to be needed anymore. "Amy?" it was Ty
"I miss her…" I whispered as he wrapped his arms around my slim waist
"I know baby…I do too. I remember when we found out, I proposed to you and then the doctor hit us with this news." I could hear the slight smile in his voice
"I know…" I cried
"Amy? Ty?" Mallory called down the stairs "If you feel like it, dinner is ready."
"We'll be up in a minute!" Ty called back
"We better go…" I said pulling away from him and leaving the nursery and shutting the door. I started up the stairs leaving Ty downstairs
After dinner Amy went straight to bed without so much as a goodnight. She's pulled away from everyone since Sarah died. She hardly talks to me anymore…I can't get her to open up, I've tried having Mallory talk to her, but she wouldn't talk to her either. I grabbed an extra pillow and blanket from the closet and made a small bed on the couch.
I was almost asleep when the doorbell ring, I ran up the stairs to get it for Mallory and Jake who were cleaning up dinner. I opened the door and saw someone I didn't expect to see. "Lou?" Mallory came to the top of the stairs
"What are you doing here?" I asked
"I…I know…I need to see my baby sister…please." She had tears flowing down her cheeks
"I'll go get her." I sighed and let her in
Lou followed me down the stairs and sat down on the chair next to the loveseat where my bed was made. I went into the bedroom and walked over to our bed. I sat down next to Amy and carefully woke her up. "Amy?"
"Hmmm." She mumbled opening her eyes
"Someone's here to see you." I said helping her up
"Who?" she asked
I didn't respond, I just let her walk out to see Lou sitting there. "What are you doing here?" she asked
"I'm so sorry…I should've understood…I should've been a sister to you." She said looking at Amy tears rolling down her cheeks
"But you never will. You will NEVER understand!" Amy yelled and ran back into the bedroom slamming and locking the door
"Why is she so angry?" Lou asked me
"If I knew…I'd tell you, she doesn't want to talk to anyone anymore. Not me, Mallory, Jake, Soraya, not even Ashley." I plopped down on the couch and sighed
"I better go…Katie needs to be put to bed and Peters out of town, so…" she hurried out of the house
What am I supposed to do? My fiancé hates the world, she hates me…she lost our daughter. How am I supposed to help her?
**1 week later** (Sorry so jumpy!)
I was home alone today. I liked it…the quiet. It fit me…I liked sitting in the dark quiet house, it gave me time to think…about Sarah, about mom. Mom should've been there for me when I lost my little girl…I needed her. I need her. I sat down in the brown rocking chair in the nursery and ran my fingers across the frame of the crib. "Oh, Sarah…" the tears fell down my cheeks
I couldn't believe that Lou stopped by…she didn't care about me…none of them did, I got that…nothing is going to change. I leaned back and closed my eyes.
"Amy. Amy baby girl. Wake up." I heard that voice tell me. I lifted my head and looked into the eyes of my mother
"Momma?" I asked
"Hi, baby. Why the tears?" she asked
"I lost her…I lost her momma." I cried
"No…baby, you didn't lose her. She's right here…" she put her hand on my heart "She's safe, she's getting to know her grandma, up here with me." She said
"Sarah is? You've seen Sarah?" I asked…I never even got to hold her
"Yes, baby she's the most beautiful baby since you." My mom kissed my forehead
"When do I get to see her?" I sobbed in my mom's arms
I heard a crying in the distance, mom turned around to the crib and picked up a pink bundle. "Right here…is your little girl. Just for my little girl." She told me
She laid Sarah in my arms and she looked up at me with Ty's eyes. I kissed my angels forehead and snuggled her tight. Mom held her arms out and took her from me. "Mom! Please! Don't let me see her one last time! Please!" I begged
"Amy I am sorry, but my time with you has expired…I need to leave." She disappeared "I love you." The air whispered to me
I opened my eyes. Suddenly everything was too dark. Too quiet. I walked out of the nursery and opened the blinds. I turned on some music and let myself be overcome with the joy of having held my daughter.
I heard the door open but I continued to clean…something I hadn't done in 2 weeks. "Amy!" Ty yelled over the music
"Hi Ty!" I said giving him a big kiss
"Amy? Are you okay?" he asked me
"I'm fine…no I'm better than fine, I'm great. We are going to be okay." I told him
"What happened today?" he asked me sitting down with me
"I got to see Sarah today." I smiled
"How?" he asked
"My mom came to visit me…she's taking care of Sarah while we cant." I smiled
"Honey, that's crazy." Ty said
"I know, but it's true!" I kissed him
"Okay, I love you Amy. Do you want to go take a nap?" he asked me
"Sure." We got up and went to our bedroom
**1 Year Later**
"You look beautiful Amy…" Mallory told me wiping tears from her eyes
"So do you." I hugged her
"But you…your gorgeous." She sighed "You better help me pick out my wedding dress." She smiled
She was right, I did make a good choice for my dress. It was a strapless, floor-length dress. It had a simple but elegant red v-shaped ribbon across the top. I loved it. I couldn't wait to walk down to the rest of my life…Ty and I were going to be so happy. We couldn't wait, we were still living with Mallory and Jake, but that was okay…we didn't need our own house to be happy. "It's time." Ashley walked in with my flower girl on her hip.
"Hey, sweet girl. You ready?" I asked Haley. Ashley and Caleb's daughter
"Yeah!" she smiled
I heard the music begin and they left the room leaving me all alone…Soraya flew in yesterday and was going to be one of my brides maid…my Maid of Honor was Mallory, the rest of my family failed to come…
Well…it's about that time.
