Necroblade: Just read. Oh and Aurora is 18 in this chapter and probably was in the last chapter too, I don't know exactly when graduation is, so I can't say for sure.
Shania: If you're reading this; Glad you like my stories and I'll keep writing as long as I can. I'll probably need to take a year break, but that'll be two years from now.
The-power-of-love: I could upload the episodes and send you the links. Some of the episodes are too small to burn and get a good quality, but as soon as I get them all big enough, I'm willing to burn them for you.
Arwennicole: Fanfiction seems to have a no-link policy, so I wouldn't show it. I checked in your ID, but it doesn't show your e-mail, so could you sent me a mail then I can sent the links to you.
Jenny: Yeah, we're there. Don't leave, it'll be no fun without you. :puts on a party-hat and pulls out the champagne: I'll be writing as quick as I can, don't you worry, I don't have school for a whole week, so it should be no problem. Oh and I want a standalone for my birthday. You've got two months to write it, so it shouldn't be too much of a problem, right?
GreenDayfan1: It's really no problem. That's what friends are for, right? And if copy-past is so hard, just copy once and hold 'ctrl-v'.
Phantom Rogue: The problem with making Andros and Ashley grandparents at 37? I don't see one, but for this story I do. Just read and you'll find out.
Ghostwriter: Don't be bummed; Part 1. PART 1:P
LucyE: I'm glad I could make your day. I was going to make it a boy, but then when I was writing it I thought; wouldn't Lucy like a girl named after her better? So that's what I did. Mack and Aurora sure make a great couple, you don't think Andros would stand for it if someone hurt his daughter, now would you?
What Was Lost
"One more push, Mrs."
The cries of a new born filled the room.
"And you have a girl." The doctor announced. "Would you like to cut the umbilical cord?"
Without hesitation, he took the scissors and cut the cord. The girl was taken away to be cleaned up. He moved to sit down on the bed next to his wife and she leaned against him, tired but happy.
Within five minutes the baby was returned, wrapped in a fuzzy pink blanket. She was placed in the safety of her mother's arms. As her proud parents watched, she opened her soft hazel eyes as looked at them, gurgling happily, before closing them again to yawn.
Her parents smiled down at her.
A soft knock on the door caught their attention and they watched Aurora and Ray walk in, followed by the others. The moment Aurora caught sight of the little bundle in her mother's arms, she rushed over and looked down at her newborn baby sister.
"Can I hold her?" She begged.
"Just be careful." Ashley warned.
Aurora carefully took her sister out of her mother's arms and held her tightly. Ray came to stand next to her and softly touched the small hands of the baby. To his surprise, the hand he was tracing flexed and caught hold of his finger. Looking over at his parents, he saw them smile at him and his sisters and he couldn't help the bright smile erupting on his face.
"So, what's her name?" Karone asked, peering over Aurora's shoulder to look at her niece.
Ashley looked at Andros for a moment before answering.
"Ciana Gwynith Hammond."
"Any special reason?" Cassie wanted to know.
"Ciana means God has been gracious." Ray grinned.
"And Gwynith is Karovan. It means Blessed." Aurora smiled.
"If God hadn't been gracious and hadn't let my Guardian Angel watch over me that day, she wouldn't have been here." Andros added, hugging Ashley close and kissing the top of her head.
Everyone smiled at the happy family in front off them. A year ago, they had never expected to be here, but no one would have wanted to be anywhere else.
"You know." Zhane said thoughtfully. "Ashley's not really nice to Andros. When he's here to be with her, she gives birth to a girl and when he's gone, she gives birth to a boy."
Everybody laughed, but Andros just watched his three children with a smile. His precious little Angel, now grown into a beautiful young woman, the son no one had known of and the little bundle of joy, born a month early, wrapped in the arms of his eldest. At that moment he knew that if the eleven hard years were what he had to go through to have them, he would gladly do it again.
"Yet another brat. Well. At least she won't be a ranger. Beware rangers. This isn't over yet."
