Authors Note- In the proud tradition of all unexpected successes, I have created a sequel. Yes, me again! I've been working on this since the last Friday of August, 2005 (aka Chapter 7 of The Expectants), and unlike The Expectants, it actually has a plot. Yay! And what a sequel it is! 99 more celebrities! 57 more special effects! An even though everyone has a Blonda/Juandissimo fic now, it was innovative when I started writing this, so don't say I'm copying. The next chapter might be a while in coming (I was hoping to see Blonda's Have More Fun before posting this), but I'll play it by ear and see how it goes.
Wanda woke up with a start, and found she was shaking and sitting straight up in bed. She had just had a terrible nightmare. It was just a dream, she told herself, trying to calm down. It was just a dream, it was just a dream…
But why would she dream about that at all? Of not just being intimate with Juandissimo, but of enjoying it and loving him? She looked over and saw Cosmo sleeping peacefully next to her, dreaming his own innocent dreams. She lay down and gently rested a hand on his chest, trying to get back to sleep. But it was no good. The dream had been so vivid, she felt almost like she had cheated on Cosmo. Wanda got out of bed; it was no good just lying there thinking about it. She pulled on her dressing gown and left their room, going next door into the bedroom of their three-week old daughter. She floated over to Alska's bed, and looked down at her sleeping. Here was all the evidence Wanda needed to prove she loved Cosmo more than anyone else in the world. Allie stirred and began to whimper. Right on cue, thought Wanda with a smile. Ever since they'd brought her home three weeks ago, Allie hadn't slept a full night. She would always wake up crying in the early morning, and because of the magic they'd put on the wall between their rooms, Cosmo and Wanda would always hear her.
Wanda picked her up and kissed her. "I guess you can't sleep either, hey honey?" Allie clutched instinctively at her mothers dressing gown, and Wanda smiled. Being a mother was great, and she was surprised at how quickly Cosmo had taken to being a parent. He completely adored Allie. He would hold her, play with her, talk to her, get up at night to comfort her, and even change her nappies. Sure, they were fairies, and all this involved was a wave of a wand, but it was the thought that counted.
Wanda sat down in the armchair in Allies bedroom, prepared to stay there until her daughter had fallen asleep again. This brought her mind back to why she was there in the first place.
"Why can't your Mummy just be happy with what she has?" she asked Allie with a sigh.
Meanwhile, in Fairy World, Blonda was having her own trouble. She lay next to Juandissimo, listening to him sleeping. He had fallen asleep easily, but she couldn't. She felt something was different. Juandissimo had been as passionate and loving as he always was, so it wasn't anything he had done. It wasn't her either. Something felt…different. No, different wasn't the right word. It didn't feel strange, or odd, or anything like that either. In fact, she wasn't even sure if she could feel it. It was more of a sense. She could sense it. She hadn't felt anything like it before, and she couldn't understand what it was. She sighed, rolled over, and held Juandissimo, trying to ignore it.
"Is anything wrong, my Blonda?" he asked, startling her.
"I thought you were asleep," she said, stroking his cheek.
"You woke me up. So, is anything the matter mi amor?" he asked again. Blonda thought about the strange sense in her body that she struggled to understand herself.
"No, I'm fine," she lied. She kissed him to reinforce that, and settled down in her, or rather, in their bed.
"Goodnight Juandissimo," she said.
"Goodnight, my Blonda."
Cosmo woke up the next morning, keeping his eyes closed. He felt rested after the first good night's sleep he'd had in 3 weeks.
Maybe Allie's finally learnt how to sleep properly he thought with a wide smile. He reached over to Wanda's side of the bed, wanting her to share in his good mood. When he couldn't feel her in her usual spot, he opened his eyes and sat up a bit, slightly put out. He still liked it when he could wake up and see her next to him, especially after their long separations while she was pregnant. He got out of bed to search for her, and headed straight for the kitchen. She was probably in there having something delicious for breakfast. His mouth started to water at the thought of it, and he hoped she would make him some too. However, his plans were disrupted when he reached the kitchen and found it completely empty.
"Wanda?" he called. He was so sure she'd be there.
Big Daddy (still in his pyjamas) pushed roughly past him into the kitchen. "You're blocking the doorway, Cosmo," he said gruffly, opening the fridge and examining the contents. "And if you're looking for Wanda, check Allie's room."
"Oh yeah!" said Cosmo, surprised he hadn't thought of that himself. "Thanks Daddy!" Cosmo quickly flew down the hall, stopping in Allie's doorway and smiling at what he saw.
Wanda was fast asleep in the armchair, holding a peacefully sleeping Alska. Cosmo grinned as he watched his two favourite girls in the whole universe. He could scarcely believe how lucky he was. Wanda had been absolutely right when she had said that their baby would bring them closer together. Their relationship had never been so good, even though they were a lot more tired these days.
Cosmo couldn't have asked for a better daughter either. From her tiny little hands, to her bright bubbly smile that could melt his heart, to her small shimmery gossamer wings; Cosmo loved every single perfect part of her.
He sighed contentedly; he liked these quiet times the best. It was just a pity they never lasted very long. Alska stirred, which was sure sign she was waking up. She opened her bright green eyes, blinked a few times, and began to whimper. Wanda jerked awake and was surprised to find herself in Alska's room. She noticed Cosmo floating in the doorway, smiling at her. She smiled back and said apologetically "I guess I forgot to come back to bed last night."
"That's okay," said Cosmo, floating over to her and kissing the top of her head. "I got a great night's sleep!"
"I'm glad to hear that, sweetie," she said, then sighed, remembering her own night. "I didn't. I had a bad dream."
"Do you want to talk about it?" asked Cosmo, sympathetic.
"No, not really," she said with a small smile. "But thanks for asking."
Cosmo slid down into the seat so he was sitting next to Wanda. He gently tickled Alska so that she giggled. He leant his head on Wanda's shoulder and closed his eyes contentedly. This was the life.
