Four year old Tamaki Suoh opened the door to his mothers room one afternoon. Behind him was his two year brother Edward. Tamaki slowly opened the door wide enough for them to fit their heads through the crack of the door. Inside they see their mother, Trisha, sitting on a rocking chair, knitting something while she hummed softly to herself with a peaceful smile on her lips. While they watched her knit, Tamaki's eyes traveled down his mothers stomach.
Lately, Tamaki has noticed something about his mother the last couple of months. She gained a couple of weight, she has ate more than she usually did, she always visited the doctor, her stomach has also grown bigger and her feet usually swelled up with pain. She didn't have enough engery like she used too. Their dad told them that their baby brother or sister is inside her belly and that for a couple of weeks, he or she will be born. Tamaki couldn't understand how a baby would be able to fit inside his mothers stomach. Didn't it feel weird having a person inside you? Wouldn't it hurt when it came out? Than again, he can sorta remember the time his mother was pregnant with Edward but still it was confusing.
"Tamaki." Tamaki softly gasps and hides behind the door. Ed questionably looks at his brother, wondering why he hid. Trisha giggles lightly and stands up from the chair before putting her knitting equipment away. Trisha opens the door and she laughs when she see's Tamaki smiling innocently to her. "Tamaki, what are you doing?"
"I want to see what you were doing." He tells her. Trisha smiles and kneels down to face her sons. "I'm knitting something for the baby. Do you two want to see what I'm making?"
Tamaki nods while Ed smiles agreeing. They follow their mother inside her room. Sitting back on the chair, Trisha resumes back to knit while Tamaki and Ed watched. Trisha than starts to sing softly. "Somewhere, a voice calls, in the depths of my heart/ May I always be dreaming, in the dreams that move my heart/ So many tears of sadness, uncountable through and through/ I know on the other side of them I'll find you..."
Tamaki smiles as she sang the lullaby that she would sing to him or his brother whenever they had a nightmare or while she made dinner or just to drift them off to sleep. Her calming voice always relaxed them. Tamaki closes his eyes and listens to her.
He suddenly hears her gasp. Alarmed, Tamaki opens his eyes and looks at her. Trisha smiles and says looking at him, "The baby kicked."
Tamaki scrunches his face in confusion. Trisha giggles and held her hand out for Tamaki. Tamaki grabs it and Trisha rests Tamaki's hand on her belly. They wait in silence for the baby to kick. Tamaki looks at his mother when nothing happened. "Mommy, why do I have my hand on your stomach?"
"Because I want you to feel your baby brother or sister kick honey."
"How can a baby kick inside your stomach? Why does it need to do that?" Trisha giggles. "Because honey, when the baby kicks, that means that it's very excited to see us." Tamaki rose his eyebrows up in confusion while Ed questionably tilts his head. Trisha then adds, "It can also mean it likes you."
Tamaki's and Ed's eyes widens in surprise. "Really?" He smiles. Trisha nods. "Yes. Your baby brother or sister likes you."
Tamaki smiles happily. He looks at her stomach and says to it, "I like you too baby brother or sister." He leans his head close to her stomach and whispers, "I promise, Edward and I will be the best big brothers ever! We will always be there for you and we will always love you."
Trisha lovingly runs her hand through his hair. "You're going to be a wonderful big brothers."Trisha rubs the top of Edwards head afterwards who smiles in content.
Tamaki smiles and looks up at his mother with a laugh.
He looks down her stomach and rubs it. "I can't wait to see you."
"Tamaki! Sir Tamaki wake up!"
Tamaki groans in his sleep when he hears the head maid call out to him when he woke up that early morning. Tamaki sits up and rubs his eyes trying to wear off his tiredness. With a yawn, he smacks his lips and rubs the back of his neck.
"Huh...weird dream..." He says triedly. Looking at his clock, he looks at the time. Seeing the time, his eyes shot wide open and he jumps out of bed wide awake.
"Dammit! I'm going to be late for school!"
