Chapter 8

- -7 Months Later- -

I was 8 months pregnant…and Kane was having the time of his life feeling my stomach when the baby would move around…but one morning…It was so nice outside…it was raining and it smelled heavenly…I had a few windows open letting the smell of the rain fill the house…a couple of house later, Vince called and said he wanted Kane to come and do the PPV…I wouldn't have had a problem with it…but I hadn't been feeling well all week…We started arguing about it and we said a bunch of hateful things…I couldn't handle it…I got in the car and drove over to Mark and Veronica's…

We sat there talking for a while…when Mark got mad cause he thought I was just running away from Kane…I said, "Mark looked at me…I'm not running away from anything…I'm 8 months pregnant…I've been sick for the last week…and he can't tell Vince No…I love Kane more then anything in my life…except for maybe this baby…" I rubbed the side of my stomach…I had been getting sharp pains since I had started fighting with Kane but I was too mad to say anything…

Mark said, "Rachel…what is it?" I couldn't answer I started sliding down the wall and Mark grabbed me before I got to the ground…and started calling for Roni…she ran in and said, "What the hell is going on?" In something above a whisper, I said, "The baby." Mark picked me up and started carrying me to the car…as Roni followed called Kane on her cell phone. Telling him something was wrong with me and the baby and to meet them at the hospital.

I felt like it took forever to get to the hospital…by the time we pulled into the parking lot…I felt the darkness slip in. The hospital rushed me into the operating room immediately.

2 hours later, a doctor came out to the dressing room and said, "Kane, the baby is okay…but your wife is in a lot of trouble right now…the baby lacerated her womb and she lost a lot of blood…she also lost consciousness…now she slipped into a coma…and it can last anywhere between a few hours, to a few days to a few months. There's really nothing we can do for her anymore but wait to see what happens…this is her battle now."

Kane immediately went to her side and decided from then on he would never fight with her again…it wasn't worth losing her over. Nothing was worth losing his wife over…

Hours turned into days, and days turned into months…Kane never left her side…Roni helped take care of the baby as much as she could…Kane would hold the baby and see nothing but Rachel in her…yes it was a girl…Kane decided against naming her until Rachel woke up. It was the right thing to do. He couldn't do it without her.

After being in a coma for 2 months, Kane was sitting in a chair next to her bed, but had his head on the bed next to her body…he was partially asleep that's why when he felt someone touch his bald head he wasn't sure if it was a dream, his imagination running wild on him…or if it was real.

I slowly woke up…I felt groggy like I'd been asleep forever…I looked down and noticed my stomach was as flat as it was before I'd gotten pregnant…I then looked over and saw Kane sitting with his head on the bed next to me…I slowly let the tips of my fingernails slide along the fuzz on the top of his bald head…Kane slowly looked up and suddenly tears spring to his eyes…In all the time we'd been together I'd never seen him cry…

Big tears rolled down his cheeks as he moved up my body and had the top of his body laying over me…he pushed my hair out of my face and said, "Rach…I'm so sorry…for everything…I never want to fight again as long as I live…I love you way to much to lose you again…if something were to ever happen to you…I don't know how I'd be able to live the rest of my life without you in it…You complete everything about my life…you complete me." I wiped his tears away as he explained what had happened and about me being in a coma for 2 months. I was a little shocked needless to say.

But the doctor came in and checked me out…seems everything was healed perfectly…he wanted to keep me over night to run a few teats just to be on the safe side…and then they brought the baby in. Kane handed her to me…and she was drop dead gorgeous…even if she was only 2 months old. We decided on naming her Lara Marie Callaway…

Kane held me in his arms as I held Lara…and he looked down and said, "I love you, how did I get so lucky to have you in my life?" I said, "By grace." Kane said, "What?" I said, "I love you too big man…And it was love by grace…" Kane thought about it and dropped a kiss on Lara's head and then one on my lips and we knew as long as we had the power of love…we would have love by grace.

The End
