"Push, Kurama. Push!"
"I'm trying," cried Kurama.
Kurama was now four hours in labour and it hurt like hell. How woman could have did this, he would never know. He was sweating a gallon of sweat every five minutes. Kurama had tried to grab onto Karasu's hand, but the crow was all the way across the room in a millisecond. The first hour in labour, Kurama had another contraction and he grabbed Karasu's hand and squeezed tightly.
Karasu's hand was nearly broken when he pulled his hand out of Kurama's vice grip. His hand probably lost circulation. Kurama pushed again, but the babies didn't seem to want to come out.
Another push and Kurama could feel that he was being split in half. He pushed one last time and…. A baby was crying.
Kurama stopped and looked up, but couldn't see his first-born daughter because Megumi gave her to her assistant. Her assistant wrapped her into a white blanket and gave her to Karasu. He couldn't describe Karau's face as he looked at their daughter. Karasu was just standing there holding what he wanted for so long. He was like in a trance or something.
The baby was still crying, but he didn't seem to care. Kurama felt another contraction coming and pushed. He felt that he was splitting again, but the baby inside him didn't move. "The baby's stuck," said Megumi.
"What! What do mean she's stuck," Kurama cried as more sweat was dropping from his face. Karasu snapped out of his trance and looked up at the scene.
"The umbilical cord is chocking her. If I move her anymore, she'll suffocate."
Kurama couldn't take the pain anymore. If he didn't push the baby out now, then the baby would surely kill him.
"Kurama," Megumi said slowly. "Take a deep breath and push her out slowly." She grabbed a pair of scissors and getting ready. "When her neck shows, I'll cut the cord."
Kurama did as he was told. He took a deep breath and pushed as lightly as he could. The baby was coming out slowly, but there was no cry. Quickly, Megumi held her head and cut the cod around he neck.
She took the baby out and waited. After about thirty seconds that seemed like an eternity, the baby let out a wail. Kurama's head hit the pillow in relief. Megumi handed the baby to Kurama in a blanket.
Karasu sat down next to Kurama and they both observed their baby twins. Megumi smiled and pushed her two assistances outside. "I'll come back in a few minutes."
Kurama smiled and looked at his daughter in his arms. She stopped crying, but she was scrumming around. Their first-born that Karasu was holding had a small patch of red hair. She didn't open her eyes yet. The second that Kurama held had a small patch of black hair and she too didn't open her eyes yet.
"Do you want to name them," Karasu asked.
"I think you should."
Kurama thought and smiled. He looked at the baby in Karasu's arms. "Kara. That one is Kara and this is Kaoru."
Karasu smiled. After a few minutes, Kara and Kaoru went to sleep and Megumi came back to take the babies.
Everyone came in. They were outside in the lobby for three hours, four for Shiori. They talked about how they heard Kurama scream and heard the babies cry.
After that, they left and went to go see the babies in the baby room. Karasu left and said that he should get some rest.
Hat sounded like a good idea. Before he could get comfortable and fall asleep, there was a knock on the door.
The door opened and Hiei walked in. His face held no emotion as he stared at Kurama. Kurama didn't know what to say. Hiei was just standing and Kurama didn't even ask him to sit down.
Hiei leaned on the wall and continued to stare at the red head. "Hello Hiei," Kurama hesitated.
Hiei nodded his head. Kurama looked away and there was an awkward silence for a whole minute.
"I saw them," said Hiei.
"What," Kurama asked.
"The twins, I saw them. They look like you and him."
"Hiei, I'm sorry."
"You shouldn't be," said Hiei looking down. "I should be. I'm not good with apologies, but just so you know that I'm sorry that I slapped you."
"Its okay. You're forgiven. Hiei? I want to ask you something."
"What is it?"
"Will you be Kara and Kaoru's godfather?"
"What? You want me to be their godfather? Why? After what I've to you, why would ask me that," Hiei asked shocked.
"Because you're my best friend Hiei. And it was just a slap in the face. It's nothing to worry about. So will you?"
"Sure," said Hiei.
Kurama smiled. "Thanks Hiei."
Hiei walked over to Kurama gave him a hug, which Kurama returned. Hiei left with a small smile on his face. A minute later, Megumi came back and said before he could get some rest, she had to fix him up first. Kurama groaned and pouted. He was really tired and exhausted after the birth of his babies. He sighed. There was nothing he could do, but to try and stay awake as Megumi fixed him up.
That's it! It's the end of 'I Want a Family'. I'd like to thank those who've always been there for me to continue this fic to the end.
