Chapter 22. Baby Joy
That night after everyone had left and while Troy was in the shower, Gabriella went in to do some laundry. When she reached up in the cabinet to get the soap, she didn't see that she pulled down a full bottle as well.
When she saw that it was falling, she put her hands up over her face. But when she didn't feel anything she took her hands away to see it floating in thin air. Then a hand appeared holding it followed by Jessy's whole body.
"Thanks." Gabriella said smiling.
"Just doing my job." Jessy shrugged as she put the bottle back in the cabinet.
"So, have a good baby shower?" she asked.
"Yeah. There was a little insident with Troy, but that's passed."
"So I saw. Well, I gotta go. I just wanted to congradulate you and Troy. I know you two I'll love the baby as much as you love each other."
"Thanks. I can't wait till it's finally the day!" Gabriella shrieked before turning to turn on the washer.
"Yeah. Same here." Jessy said in a sadder tone.
Chad walked up to Troy and Gabriella's door and knocked four times. After a few seconds of waiting Troy opened the door and threw himself at Chad's feet.
"Thank heavens!" he said with a sigh of relief.
"What's up?" Chad asked smiling."Is Taylor already here?"
"Yeah, she and Gabriella are sharing a gallon of cookie dough ice cream and watching Mom At Sixteen."
Chad was about to find out 'what'.
"Troy! Who is that?" Gabriella yelled from inside. "Is that the pizza guy? Cause if it is then he's three minuets late!"
"No, honey. It's just Chad." Troy said after standing up.
"Oh, ok! Hi, Chad! Come on in!" Gabriella said in her normaly sweet voice.
Before they went in Troy whispered in Chad's ear, " First off, if they want something, get it. I don't care what it is, they get it. Second, don't speak unless your spoken too." Troy showed him a bruise on his shoulder. "That was from me asking if we had any milk. And most importantly, do not, I repeat, do not get in between them and the fridge!"
Troy patted him on the shoulder before the proceeded.
"Honey, me and Chad are going to go do some finishing touches in the baby's room." Troy said in his nicest voice.
"Ok, go right ahead!" she said smiling back.
Just then Taylor burst into tears.
"What is it?" Gabriella asked her.
"How could he do that?" she sobbed. "You don't even say hello!" she said to Chad. "It's because I'm fat isn't it!"
Chad was about to burst into tears himself. He was about to go over and comfort her when Troy put a hand on his shoulder.
"Just wait." he mouthed.
When Chad turned back around Taylor was as dry as a desert as she finished up the gallon.
"Chad, would you mind running up to the store and getting us some chips and dip?" Taylor asked smiling.
"Oooooo and some watermelon too!" Gabriella added.
"Yes, sweetie." Chad said sweetly.
"I'll get the keys." Troy said nodding.
After Taylor and Chad left, Troy and Gabriella started getting ready for bed. Troy and Chad never did get to finish the baby's room.Turned out that Taylor and Gabriella wanted more than anything in the world to watch The Notebook. Turned out they also wanted stuffed crust pizza from Pizza Hut, double fudge brownies, and for Troy and Chad to watch the movie with them, more than anything in the world.
"Uh, Troy?" Gabriella said from the next room.
"What?" Troy said as he brushed his teeth.
"I think my water just broke."
"That's nice. I was thinking that tomorrow we could...what did you say?" he said poking his head into the bedroom.
But Gabriella was already half dressed and by the time Troy was she was already out the door with her bag and waiting in the car.
Troy grabed the check list that they gave him at the hospital. The first thing was to call the hospital and let them know that you're on your way. He picked up the phone, and after a few tries cause his hads were shaking, he finally reached the hospital.
"Hello? I'm bringing in Gabriella Bolton in! She's about to have a baby!" Troy half yelled with nervousness into the phone.
"Ok, calm down." an elderly woman said on the other end. "Now is this her first baby?"
"No! This is her husband!" Troy said miss-understanding her.
"Just calm down, son." the woman said in an understanding tone. "I meant is she about to have her first baby?"
"Ok then. I'll notify Dr. Masson. He'll be waiting for you when you get here."
"Great! Thank you!" Troy said before hanging up and rushing out the door.
When he got out Gabriella had just gotten off the phone with Taylor and her mom. Her mom had moved away a few weeks after she and Troy had gotten married, but she went ahead and let her know.
"Taylor and Chad'll be there as fast as they can." she said as Troy started up the car and pulled out.
Half way to the hospital Gabriella started to have contractions.
"Wait! Did you get the camera?" she asked just following the worst one yet.
"No, I'm sorry, hon. It's on the counter. I forgot to grab it."
"We have to go back and get it!" Gabriella said just before having a worse one.
"Gabriella, you're about to have a baby. We have to get to the hospital!" Troy said trying to talk some sense into her.
"But don't you always want to remember the birth of you first child?"
"What took you so long?" Chad asked as they got out of the car at the hospital.
"We had to go back and get the camera." Troy said as they walked in.
When they got in there was a couple of nurses waiting with a wheelchair. When Gabriella was seated they wheeled her down to a room and got her on the bed.
(let me just take this oprotunity to apologize in advance for any mistakes made in the birth section. i've never seen this done, just heard about it.)
An hour later Gabriella was in complete agony. Troy was trying to help as much as he could, but it wasn't doing much.
"Ok, Gabriella. You're doing great." said the doctor as she sat down in frount of Gabriella. "I think you're ready to start pushing now."
Fifteen minuets later it was not a happy place to be. Everyone had gotten yelled at for some misdeed in the past at least once.
"I hate you Chad!" Gabriella yelled.
"What did I do?" Chad said almost to the point of tears.
"You're the one who's responsible for this whole mess!" she yelled as the pushed.
Troy stared at Chad with an open mouth.
"You talked Troy into doing this to me! You wanted this to happen!" she finished, causing a small sigh of relief from Troy.
Troy looked over to see his dad motioning to him from outside the door.
"Hey, dad." Troy said as his mom walked in to be with Gabriella.
"Hey, son. I just wanted to catch you before you're officialy initiated into fatherhood." his dad said patting him on the back.
"Yeah. I'm kinda nervous. I mean, I don't know if I can do this right."
"Troy, that's exactly how I felt when we were about to have you. I didn't know if i was capable of raising a kid right and teaching him everything he's gonna have to know. But then I thought of my dad and all the stuff he taught me. And then everything just seemed to come naturaly."
"Thanks, dad. I'll never forget everything you've taught me." Troy said giving his dad a hug.
When he turned around the doctor was standing in the doorway.
"Come in and meet you're daughter." she said smiling.
Troy gulped. Suddenly his knees lost all ability to support him. He made his was as best as he could into the room where Gabriella was laying on the bed exausted, but with a big grin. Troy walked over to her and kissed her cheek.
When he stood back up one of the nurses tapped him on the shoulder. When he turned around the handed him a small bundle wrapped in a soft pink blanket.
Troy hand was shaking as he pulled back the cover to see a small little face looking up at him.
"Oh, Gabriella! She's so beautiful!" he said smiling as he turned around to her.
He handed her the baby as gently as he could.
"Oh, she is. She looks just like you."
"I was about to say she looks just like you." Troy said smiling.
Just then Gabriella yawned.
"Why don't you rest while I go tell everyone the good news." Troy said before going out to the waiting room.
Gabriella held the baby close as she slowly went to sleep. When she looked up, Jessy was standing in front of her.
"Jessy! Come see her!" Gabriella said proudly.
Smiling, she walked over beside Gabriella.
"Yeah, she's something else." Jessy said smiling, but in a sad tone.
"What is it? Is something wrong?" Gabriella said a little worried as she held her baby a little tighter.
"No, don't worry. You're going to be fine. I just have something to tell you." Jessy said sighing before continuing. "Well, accourding to the rules up there, since you've just had a baby, you're no longer in need of a guardian angel."
"So, does that mean you'll be leaving...and I won't see you again." Gabriella said sadly.
"Yeah. From now on all your problems will be the responsibility of the ARS, Alpha Rescue Squad. I know most of the guys on it. They'll take good care of you." Jessy said. "But I have been reassigned."
"Who is it?" Gabriella said when she saw Jessy's face lit up.
Jessy nodded to the baby. "Your daughter."
At this Gabriella's face lit up.
"Then I know she'll be in good hands." Gabriella said smiling. But then she remembered tat Jessy would be leaving.
"So, I guess I'll never see you again."
"Oh, you'll see me occasionaly." Jessy said smiling. "Bye, Gabriella. I'm gonna have to say, you've truly been the highlight of my carrer."
"Good-bye Jessy. I'll never forget you." Gabriella said before giving her a big hug.
Jessy waved good-bye as a male angel appeared beside her.
"Oh, this is Logan. He was Troy's angel."
"Pleased to meet you m-lady." Logan said in a british accent before bowing a little.
Just the the baby started to cry a little.
"Oh! It's ok!" he then said in a normal voice. "May I?" Logan said holding his hands out.
Gabriella gave the baby to Logan who started making funny faces for her. Soon her crys turned into happy sounds.
"Here." he said handing her back to Gabriella. "I specialize in newborns."
"Well, are we ready?" Jessy asked.
"I guess so." Logan said standing back beside her.
Jessy then waved good-bye as they dissapeared for the last time.
Just then Troy walked in.
"I told everyone that you needed a rest right now, but I'll take her out to them." he said sitting down beside her. "So, do we have a name for her?"
"I have the perfect name for her." Gabriella said smiling as she looked at her. "How about Jessy Elizabeth Bolton."
"You're right, it is perfect." Troy said as they smiled down on their perfect daughter.
Just to let everyone know, I had it planned all along to have Jessy going away like that. But don't worry, she's not gone forever. She'll come up a couple of times in the next edition if T. F. I. N.
