Unrequited Love

Chapter 47: It Begins

After their little argument, things were back on track between Marik and Anuket. She had undergone a miraculous change in character since he allowed her to wander about as she pleased. She didn't understand why Marik had acted like that in the first place, but then who was she to know how a mans mind worked? "Leave them to get on with it" she thought with a smile. She went out with her friends as much as she could, keeping her promise to Marik to rest and eat whenever she needed to. Marik also made more of an effort. He took her out for romantic walks along the beach and showered her with gifts and kisses. She was blissfully happy and couldn't imagine her life to be better. Her life was perfect.

Two months later, and the young couple were waiting impatiently for the arrival of their baby. There was only a month to go now and both parents were getting restless. Marik had taken to hiding in the garage with his bike now because Anuket's moods were becoming unbearable. He knew it wasn't her fault; it was her hormones doing somersaults. But it didn't stop him from getting exasperated at her for it. So in order to keep the peace in the house, he had learned to recognise the warning signs. When Anuket was about to explode, her eyes took on an almost fiery gleam to them. Whenever he saw that gleam, he made his excuses and ran off to allow her time to cool down.

Marik was in the museum this morning, talking to his sister about his troubles.

"She's driving me crazy!" Marik growled. "Don't get me wrong, I love Anuket very much and would do anything for her, but im constantly having to watch what I do to make sure she stays in a relatively good mood!"

Ishizu watched her exasperated brother with a smile. He paced around the office, his hands in his hair nearly ripping clumps out.

"Im afraid there is nothing you can do about it brother until your son is born" she grinned. "Don't worry, there's only one more month to go"

"I doubt I can survive another month" Marik groaned, exhaling and slumping into a nearby leather sofa at the side of the room. He propped his feet up and began to rub his temples in an attempt to rid himself from the pounding headache that made his head feel like a balloon. He was ready to pop at any moment.

He cringed when the sound of the telephone rang through his eardrums. He growled at the pain and glared at his sister to answer the damn thing. Ishizu ignored the look he gave her and began speaking to the person on the other line. She looked at Marik with a sympathetic glance before holding the phone out to her brother.

"It's Anuket" she stated simply.

Marik groaned and slowly rolled off the leather sofa, and onto the floor. He got up on his knees and onto his feet, slowly walking towards the dreaded item in his sisters hand. He took it hesitantly and placed it to his ear.

"Hello?" he said carefully and calmly.

He cringed when a female voice rang through the earpiece of the phone. It took him a few seconds to gather himself together enough to be able to talk back to his wife.

"Im with Ishizu" he said evenly. "I was just helping her with something" he lied.

Ishizu rolled her eyes and straightened the papers on her desk.

"Yes, I'll be right back" he said with a slightly defeated tone and handed it back to his sister. "and that's my cue to leave" he grinned. "She wants me to pick something up. Mustn't keep her ladyship waiting now"

Half an hour later Marik had returned home, his arms weighed down with shopping bags. It took him a few minutes to gather everything together to keep them from falling onto the floor. He walked towards the door that connected the garage to the kitchen. He shifted the bags in his arms and reached out to turn the handle.

"Marik, you're home!"

Marik jumped back, nearly losing his grip on the shopping, trying to recover from the heart attack his wife had given him. He looked up at her, panicked that she would begin to lay into her with her fearsome female fury. He was relieved however to see that she had a smile on her features.

"I'm sorry Marik. I just had to do that" she smiled, reaching out to help her husband with one of the lighter bags.

"It's ok" he smiled "anything that cheers you up I guess. I hope you won't make a habit out of it though?" he said raising a brow.

"I wont" Anuket promised, holding a hand up. "Besides, I won't get too many chances to" she said, laying a hand on her extremely swollen stomach. "He's going crazy recently. He won't stop moving around. It's driving me nuts. If he's like this before he's even been born you can guarantee we won't be having much sleep for the next year or so"

Together they began packing all the shopping away. Well, Marik putting the stuff away while Anuket watched him. It was probably the same thing. Watching people work can make a person very tired.

"Marik, do you mind if I sleep a little more? I feel really sleepy…"

"Go ahead" he replied, getting out various vegetables and pans. "Do you want me to call you when lunch is ready or do you want me to keep it for when you wake up?" he didn't want to assume.

"You go ahead. I'll eat later" she replied, getting a pillow out and laying it on the couch. She steadily sat herself down and made herself comfortable, falling asleep almost instantly.

Anuket squirmed in her sleep. For some time now she had been comfortable and her dreams were that of a calming nature, but for the past half hour she had been restless and uncomfortable. She jolted in her sleep, waking herself up in the process. Looking at the clock on the wall she saw that she had only been asleep for two hours. Strange as it has seemed like so much longer then that. She rested her head back onto the pillow and stared at the ceiling.

She was aware that she was quite feeling well, but brushed it off. Her baby seemed to be squirming around, but not as much as it had before. It was odd. Marik was in the corner of the room reading a magazine about bikes, unaware that his wife was now awake. Anuket began rubbing her stomach, suddenly aware of a dull ache. It was like period cramps, no biggie. She'd had them before. Nothing she couldn't handle.

She got up slowly from the couch, and headed towards the bathroom.

"Have a nice sleep?" asked Marik.

"Not really" she replied, closing the door behind her.

Anuket turned the tap on and splashed the cold water onto her face. she used a towel to pat her face dry and stared at herself for a moment in the mirror. Ra she looked tired. She could definitely use a good sleep. She wondered to herself whether or not she should go to the doctor and ask for something herbal to help her make it all the way through the night.

Her thoughts were interrupted however when a sharp pain, though not a strong one, made its way through her abdomen. She clutched her stomach from the shock. Surely the baby wasn't coming now? there was a whole month to go yet! her doubts were confirmed though when water appeared on the floor where she was standing. She knew knew instantly that this was her water breaking and decided this was the time to let her husband know the news.

"marik?" she called, trying to keep her voice even.

"what?" he replied.

"I think its time we called the hospital!"

I am so sorry it has taken this long to update. Major writer's block you see. Anyway. Here it is. Anuket has gone into labour and little Namu is on the way. There will only be 2 more chapters after this, and I don't think I will be writing another Yu Gi Oh fic. i have a little too much on my plate right now and haven't been online as much recently (as you can see from my deviant art page) I still don't have a scanner and I need to upload a ton of pics.

I will take a moment very soon to get everything up to date and in order I promise you. once again, apologies for the lateness of this chapter. Happy reading.
