I looked into the eyes of my mate. He was chuckling nervously, and that was never a good sign.
"Well, spit it out, honey. I can't be mad at you for something I know nothing about." I said, keeping my tone light, when I was itching to know what he was going to tell me. I had to keep my eye from twitching. He kissed me on the lips for a full second, a desperate attempt to distract me. I looked at him with a droll stare, trying to not seem as loopy and excited as I was from the kiss.
"well, love, honey, most beautiful woman in the entire universe… I kinda made a big, well, HUGE mistake.." He laughed once more, and I rolled my eyes. This game of beating around the bush was getting rather tedious, and I wasn't going to play it anymore.
"Savitar… Tell me." I said, my tone showing my irritation. He smiled nervous, but his eyes avoided mine.
"Well, you know the voodoo power thing that I used on Samia and Aimee, so that they could have babies, well, at Knox and Remi's wedding, I was going to give them another shot of it, but I got sidetracked, and went to see Knox and Remi, and I accidentally touched both of them and well…" He trailed off. I felt my eyes widen as I put two and two together. I looked at him, still trying to grasp what he had just told me.
"Are you saying that my brother…. Or his mate… Could get pregnant?" I whispered, my voice betraying me, and staying low. Savitar nodded slowly, unsure of what I was about to do.
"Oh god… the wedding was a week ago…" I felt my eyes widen further.. The wedding was a week ago… And they've been going at it like rabbits…. I jumped out of bed, throwing the stray sheets over Savitar. I scrambled to pull on my jean shorts, and I t-shirt, that wasn't stained or rumpled, or torn up for that matter. By shear luck, it was one of Savitar's few t-shirts. He looked at me, his face confused.
"What are you doing?" He asked, and I looked at him, hastily tying my hair back into a sloppy ponytail.
"With what you just told me, and what's been going on in the room down the hall… We have a pregnant male we need to identify." I told him, point blank. He smiled, and walked over to hug me, and I noticed that his board shorts were draped over his hips in a beautiful manner. I hugged him back, and tried to keep my mind focused on the task at hand. He kissed the top of my head. I looked up at him, and smiled.
"Stop distracting me, I need to go talk to the bunnies in the room down the hall." I told him, and I quickly kissed him on the cheek. He laughed at my joke, and he held my hand, and brushed my knuckles sweetly across my lips. I felt my face flush.
'Stop it, I have to go find them!" I giggled. He winked, and then he flopped onto my side of the bed, and curled up with my pillow. He looked so young, so adorable, I just wanted to go and curl up beside him.. I shook my head, I had to stay focused on the task at hand.
I strode down the hall, and I thumped on the door. I heard sounds of fornication in there. I rolled my eyes, and I tried to open the door. It was locked, and I rolled my eyes, I guess they were getting tired of being walked in on.
"Knox, Remi! Open the damn door! I have something VERY important to tell you!" I yelled, and I heard some shuffling, but there was no moves to open the door. I growled under my breath, and said a large apology to my beloved about what I was about to do. I sucked in a deep breath, and I kicked the door in with a full force kick. They were just finishing, they were all sweaty, I was fighting to keep down bile. I could never stomach seeing my brother post-coital.
"Alex! What the hell?" My brother squeaked, as he got off Remi. I turned around, and looked at the wall as they both got relatively decent. I turned around when the shuffling, and the zipping stopped. Knox and Remi both looked mortified that they were walked in on once more.
"So, what's so important that you need to break down the locked door?" Knox squeaked, and then cleared his throat, and tried to keep his facial expression neutral. I looked at him with a raised eyebrow, but I didn't allow myself to get distracted by that.
"You two have a problem, a very serious problem." I spoke, my voice straining to show the stress and severity of the situation. Now it was Knox's turn to raise an eyebrow. I continued with my explaination.
'Remember at your wedding, when Savitar patted you both on the shoulder, congratulating you, just before you two did your "official" first dance, and then he went to go see Aimee and Samia… Well…" I trailed off, hoping that they could but two and two together. I watched as their faces paled instantaneously.
'Are you…. Are you saying that one of us could be… pregnant?" My brother squeaked. I nodded solemnly, and Remi stared looking a little green around the edges of his face. I looked at him, concern showing up on my face.
"remi, are you.." I didn't have time to finish my sentence before he shoved me out of the way, and barrelled his way to the bathroom, where sounds of retching echoed all the way down the hall.
Oh shit… I thought. Remi was the one with child, and I was going to have an anxiety attack from the vomiting. Damn my emetophobia. Knox rushed to his mates side, and I leaned against the wall, practicing my deep breathing excerises, as I too, tried to keep the rising bile down. I closed my eyes, and I tried to block out the symphony of retching. I suddenly felt an arm around me, and I smelt the familiar smell of sunlight, flowers, and ocean. I leaned into Savitar's chest, as he covered my ears, like he was trying to protect me from the retches. It felt like five hours when he finally released me, and we both walked cautiously to the bathroom. I saw my brother with his arms wrapped around his mate, who was curled up on the floor, trying to grasp the reality of the situation.
"is he.. Is he okay?" I choked out, my throat still locked closed from my attempts to stifle bile. Knox nodded slowly, as he tucked a stray piece of hair behind Remi's ear. I looked at Savitar, who was watching the situation with a straight, emotionless face. I looked back at my brother and Remi, the bump was becoming more and more prominent with every passing moment. I swallowed thickly. We were in for one hell of a ride…
