Chapter 1 -
is having a baby
but it aint her fault
someone took advantage of
a little girl who was lost
Don't put the blame
on her tiny shoulders
she's got enough guilt as it is
Being forced to grow
at an accelerated pace
is not the way to live
-- Innocence Stolen ; Sporadic
The beautiful girl screamed as wave after wave of pain twisted through her. She almost couldn't take it, but she had to. Countless women before her had gone through the process. Birth was extremely painful and she had known that when she discovered the pregnancy. Of course she had tried to hide it, but she should have known that it wouldn't work. Not when her mother was the one picking up tampons for her and also happened to be a very good doctor. Unfortunately she was also a doctor against abortion and adoption. That was part of the reason that the pretty blue haired girl had to leave. Her mother didn't want it spread around the medical community that her daughter was 16 and pregnant. The girl felt a slash of pain at that. Her mother had known about the rape as well. Even knew who the man was. One of their 'esteemed' neighbors. Her mother didn't press charges, and she blamed her. So she had been sent away from L3 and all of her friends to go to the Sanq Kingdom on Earth.
"Push Ami, Push," One of the nurses told her. Ami pushed as hard as she could. She smiled slightly when she thought about how angry her mother was when the 'esteemed' neighbor had gotten in a mystery car crash. The authorities could find no evidence as to who cut the breaks on the politicians car. Her mother had known that it had to be her friends. Ami of course told her that she had no idea what she was talking about. She remembered the conversation perfectly.
The phone in the lonely apartment rang shrilly as Ami watched the sun set. She walked over to the table, putting a hand over her swelling stomach.
"Hello?" She asked, picking it up.
"Ami Diane Mizuno, I know it was those hooligan friends of yours," Her mothers voice told her angrily.
"What are you talking about mother?" Ami asked with a sigh.
"Mr. Son (not DBZ) has been killed," The woman answered.
"Has anyone been apprehended?" Ami asked with a small smile gracing her face.
"Of course not, I told you that it was your friends. I know that group all to well Ami. I know that you helped them cause trouble as well," Her mother shouted at her.
"How can you be so sure that it was them?" Ami asked lightly.
"Do you know what someone wrote across the trunk in Lipstick? Do you?" Her mother yelled. Ami of course knew automatically that it was her friends at that comment.
"Of course not mother, I'm not there nor have I been watching the news," She answered with another sigh.
"Do not give me that line Ami. I know that it was your friends. You were part of that stupid little gang," Her mother said in an annoyed tone.
"It wasn't a gang mother," Ami explained calmly.
"Yes it is, don't you lie to me. And it was your gang that killed Mr. Son. They wrote 'Justice has been Served' on his car," Her mother shouted.
"Mother, I must leave for my appointment. Goodbye," Ami hung up on her mother. She quickly dialed a number.
"I swear to Kami, if this is another telemarketer," A voice said threateningly.
"I'm more inclined to give rather than sell Ruka," Ami said with a giggle.
"Snowflake, how are you?" The Haruka asked, instantly concerned.
"I'm fine, I just got off the phone with my mother. It seems that she is under the impression that our dear Mr. Son has been murdered," Ami told her.
"I heard something like that. She think we did it?" Haruka asked.
"Of course," Ami replied with a smile.
"Well my dear. You will be happy to know that it was not me. Nor was it Michiru or Setsuna. You'll have to talk to one of the inners. Maybe Makoto?" Haruka suggested.
"What about Hotaru?" Ami asked.
"You know, I never thought about that. She was supposed to be at school when it happened though and no one called us to tell us she disappeared," Haruka said.
"It sounded like a Hotaru thing," Ami said thoughtfully.
"Purple lipstick?" Haruka asked.
"I didn't ask the color," Ami said.
"What did it say?" Haruka asked.
"Justice has been Served," Ami replied.
"Damnit," Haruka groaned, "HOTARU," She screamed.
"Yes Ruka-papa?" Hotaru asked in the background.
"Did you know that Mr. Son died?" Haruka asked.
"Yes," Hotaru replied.
"Do you know how?" Haruka asked.
"Of course, I'm the one that did it," Hotaru replied.
"I was asking everyone who did it and none of them would confess," Haruka said with a growl.
"You never asked me so I had no compunction to say that it was me," Hotaru told her.
"You were supposed to be in class," Haruka said with a glare.
"I did it while I was in the bathroom," Hotaru answered with a mischievous tone.
"Long bathroom break?" Haruka asked drolly.
"Quite," Hotaru answered.
"Tell Hotaru thank you, I have to go to an appointment now so I must let you go," Ami told Haruka.
"Will do," Haruka told her.
"AAAAAAAHHHHHH," Ami yelled.
"One more, that's all it will take," The doctor told her. She pushed with all her might and in a few moments there was a loud wailing. Ami closed her eyes and took a few deep breaths. She was only half done. Time for her baby's twin.
"It's a girl," The doctor said happily.
"It still hurts," Ami growled.
"Of course it does Miss Mizuno, you haven't delivered the second one yet," The nurse answered.
"How are you feeling now Ami? Ready for another go?" The doctor asked cheerfully. That was not something Ami wanted to hear.
"A BABY JUST PASSED BETWEEN MY LEGS AND YOU'RE ASKING HOW I FEEL AND IF I WANT TO DO IT AGAIN? I DON'T HAVE ANY FUCKING CHOICE AND IF YOU WERE NEAR ENOUGH I WOULD HIT YOU FROM HERE TO PLUTO AND BACK," Ami screamed at the top of her lungs. 4 of her friends in the waiting room could hear her, and they all stood in wonder at the thought of their usually quiet friend that pissed off.
"That was scary," Haruka commented.
"Yeah, she was almost as loud as Usa when she's hungry," Hotaru commented in amazement.
"She had to have been louder if we heard her from out here," Setsuna answered.
"It was definitely a surprise," Michiru said with a laugh.
"To bad the others are missing this," Haruka said with a laugh.
"You try going through it," Michiru told her with a raised eyebrow.
"Uh, I think I could do without," Haruka said quickly. Three boys across the room were trying to ignore them, and then Ami started screaming profanities about imbecilic doctors.
"Man, I didn't know she had it in her," Haruka said approvingly.
"IF IT"S SO EASY THAN YOU TRY IT YOU EGOTISTIC MOTHER FUCKING LAME BRAINED JUVENILE ASSHOLE PEANUT DICKED CREEPY LITTLE PRICK," Ami screamed.
"I should be taking notes," a boy with a braid hanging down to his hips and light violet colored eyes commented.
"Isn't it great?" Haruka asked.
"Haruka, if you don't be nice I'm going to tell her what you're saying," Michiru said.
"She'll only blush," Haruka said with a shrug.
"Not if I bring up memories," Setsuna said with a grin.
"No ganging up on me," Haruka said, putting her arms over her head in mock fear.
"I take it you're friends with her?" Asked a sweet faced boy with blonde hair and crystal blue eyes.
"That would be correct," Hotaru said with a nod.
"We're waiting for a friend to get out of the OR," The boy with the braid told them. The other boy in the group had messy brown hair, but they couldn't tell his eyes because they were closed.
"What happened to him?" Michiru asked with a sympathetic look on her face.
"He got in the way of one bullet while dodging another," The one with the braid said with a grin.
"Duo, that's not a very nice way to put it," The blonde one told the braided boy with his hands on his hips.
"He's as bad as Haruka," Michiru said with a laugh.
"I'll take that as a complement," Haruka said with a grin.
"I'm Duo Maxwell, this Quatre Raberba Winner, and the quiet one is Heero Yui, don't expect him to talk much," Duo introduced.
"I'm Haruka Tenno, this is Michiru Kaiou, this is Hotaru Tomoe, and this is Setsuna Meiou," Haruka told them.
"Ah, the violinist, pleased to make your acquaintance," Quatre told Michiru, "And of course my sister's love your clothes Miss Meiou," He told Setsuna, "And I rarely miss a race Miss Tenno," He told Haruka, "You of course, must be their daughter, Miss Tomoe, it's a pleasure to meet you as well," He told them all with a smile. Duo hadn't yet stopped staring in awe at Haruka, so he missed everything that Quatre said.
"Let me guess, you're a fan," Haruka said with a grin.
"Absolutely," Duo said with a nod. Someone came out then.
"Friends of Miss Mizuno?" asked a smiling nurse.
"That would be us," Setsuna answered as the four moved foreword.
"Ami's had two beautiful children, a boy and a girl, and is doing fantastic after the birth," She told them. Haruka sighed in relief.
"Who was she screaming at?" Hotaru asked. The nurses smile got larger.
"Doctor Lee thinks that he's got a wonderful sense of humor, but Ami didn't agree with him. He told her that after the first one the second should be a piece of cake and she shouldn't be yelling so much," She told them.
"Doe's he have a death wish?" Haruka asked.
"No, he's stupid," The nurse said with a shrug.
"When can we see Ami?" Michiru asked.
"Not until tomorrow, but if you come with me I'll show you the babies," The nurse told them. They followed her to a windowed area that had a few squalling infants inside. She pointed to two of the nurses coming in with babies. One was wrapped in blue, the other in pink. The nurse tapped on the glass and pointed at the two being held. The nurses brought them foreword and showed them to the people standing there.
"They look like red monkey's," Haruka commented. Michiru slapped her upside the head for it.
"All babies look like that for the first few hours," The nurse told them.
"Even so, she doesn't need to comment," Michiru told her.
"Have they been named?" Setsuna asked. She knew that Ami hadn;t yet been sure when she went into labor.
"Yes, the girl is Fern Elizabeth Mizuno and the boy is Corey Benjamin Mizuno," The nurse told them.
"Lovely names," Setsuna said with a smile.
"Hey, we got news right after you left, Wu-man's fine. So I decided to come see the newest additions to the kingdom," Duo commented from behind them.
"The two that they're putting in the cribs are ours," Michiru said with a wide smile on her face.
"Where's the dad? You'd think that he'd want to have a part in his kids birth," Duo commented.
"He wasn't anywhere near good enough to lick the bottom of Ami's shoes let alone be the actual father of the kids," Haruka growled.
"I'm shutting my mouth," Duo said.
"He died in a car crash four months ago, so it doesn't matter," Hotaru said with a shrug. Duo just nodded.
"Aren't they adorable?" Michiru asked with shining eyes. Duo eyeballed them as Quatre and Heero came around the bend.
"They kinda look like red monkeys," Duo told them, sticking his hands in his pockets.
"Duo, that may be true but you do not need to comment on it," Quatre said.
"You know I said that and Michiru got upset and said the same thing Quatre just did," Haruka told the boy.
"Fern and Corey. They are beautiful names," Quatre told them.
"Their mother is a beautiful woman," Hotaru said with a smile.
"She deserves so much more than what she receives. She needs so much more then she gets," Setsuna said in a sad cryptic voice. She turned to go bully the doctors into letting her see the new mother.
"What did that mean?" Duo asked. Quatre sighed and shook his head.
"We met you for the first time today. You do not need to know, nor would we tell you even if we had known you for most of our lives. It is none of your business," Hotaru told him with a slight glare.
"But" Duo started.
"Enough Duo," Came a new voice. They turned to Heero.
"It speaks," Haruka commented with a smile.
"Quiet Haruka," Michiru commanded.
"Yes master," Haruka said with a salaam. Michiru giggled at her while Hotaru raised an eyebrow at the two.
"So what does Ami do?" Quatre asked.
"She's a student," Hotaru answered.
"What college does she go to?" He asked.
"She's a high school student," Hotaru told him.
"Oh," Quatre's face went red with embarrassment and he went back to looking at the babies.
"Where does she go to school?" Duo asked.
"She will be starting Peacecraft Academy in a few weeks," Haruka answered.
"That's where we go," Quatre said with a smile.
"Wait, how is she going to have children in the dorms?" Duo asked.
"Special plans have been made for her. She has her own dorm, she only has to share it with the kids, and it's one of the ones on the top corner floors. It's over a bathroom so it wont bother people downstairs if the babies cry. No one's above them to have a party or do something loud to make the baby cry, and the corner dorms are the most sound proof rooms in the building," Michiru told them.
"Got it down, huh?" Duo asked with a smile.
"And of course we will be stopping in to check on her," Haruka added.
"Who knows, we might even move closer," Michiru said before the three moved off down the hall.
"That was strange," Quatre said quietly.
"Man, I thought they taught safe sex at all the schools," Duo said.
"Something makes me think that it wasn't her choice," Heero told them.
"What do you mean He-man?" Duo asked.
"I mean from their comments I don't think that this Ami person had any say in the matter of sex at all," He said with an even deeper scowl on his face.
Damia - "And yet another story from the mixed up files of Damia's mind,"
Solatina - "Someone needs to slap Duo, even if he's cute,"
Wren - "Poor Ami, but way to go about the doctor. How stupid can a man get,"
Damia - "You know what they say, the fastest way to die is to piss off a woman in labor,"
Solatina - "Review,"
Wren - "And she doesn't own SM or GW,"
Damia - "Farewell,"
