"Oh god," I whimpered, resting back on my heels as I grabbed a washcloth to wipe my mouth. This was the fifth morning this week I have woken up and had to run for the bathroom. I sat there a little longer to be sure my stomach had settled before slowly getting up. I reached into the shower to turn the water on before grabbing my toothbrush and toothpaste. I was very thorough in brushing my teeth, making sure I completely got rid of the retched taste in my mouth. Once I was happy with the taste of my mouth, I stripped myself of my pajamas and slipped under the warm spray.
I stood under the water for a preposterous amount of time before washing up and climbing out. I knew I was procrastinating, and I shouldn't be. Once I was out, I took time drying my hair and applying makeup to cover the bags under my eyes, caused by lack of sleep. I grabbed underwear, some jeans, and a top. The jeans were a tight fit, only helping solidify my theory as to why I was so sick. Eventually I pulled on some shoes and grabbed my bag before leaving the house. I headed down to the nearby pharmacy, going straight down to aisle 7.
I reached out with shaking hands and pulled the products I needed off of the shelf before heading to the register. The girl raised an eyebrow at my purchases but rang them up. After paying, I took the bag and headed home. I headed back up to my apartment. Once inside, I threw my handbag onto the table, my coat on the sofa, and then headed for the bathroom to get this over with while I still had the courage.
I pulled down my jeans and panties before dropping onto the toilet, simultaneously taking the tests out of the bag and reading the instructions. Once I had read every word, I took a deep breath and took the pregnancy tests out of the boxes. I had bought six, and hastily peed on all of them. I laid them out on the tissue I had put on the vanity before setting the timer, flushing the toilet, and washing my hands.
It was quite possibly the longest three minutes of my life.
Finally the timer went off, and I took another deep breath before turning around and facing the vanity.
"Oh no," I groaned, dropping onto the closed toilet lid. I dropped my head into my hands and tried to calm myself again, before I caused myself to get sick. Eventually, I calmed myself down and headed back into the bedroom, curling up on the bed.
"Bella?" Alice's voice vibrated as I heard the front door close. "Bella?" she called again.
"Bedroom!" I croaked. She danced into the room and dropped down next to me on the bed.
"What's up, buttercup?" she asked.
"Bathroom." I pointed. She threw me a confused look but skipped out of the room, with a curious look on her face, and into the bathroom. I heard her sharp intake of breath as she saw the tests that were still lying on the counter. She came back into the room and lay down on the bed next to me.
"WOW!" she said.
"Yep, wow," I replied dryly.
"This is so exciting!" she squealed. When I didn't get excited with her she calmed down.
"You're not excited?" she asked.
"Alice, your brother is going to kill me," I told her.
"No he won't. Edward loves kids," she said, assuredly.
"Yeah but, Alice, we are only just starting out together. He's still married for crying out loud," I wailed.
"Bella, he will be so happy. He is divorcing her and wants you. He's doing everything he can to get here to be with you!" she said.
"Yeah, but a baby this early in our relationship can only spell trouble." I sighed.
"Not if you communicate. Remember, you have months before the baby will be here, and you and Edward already have a pretty solid relationship," she assured me kindly. "I think a baby will only bring you closer together."
"I guess so," I grumbled, seeing her point a little.
"Now, we need to book you an appointment with the doctor; get it confirmed before you see Edward next Thursday."
"I'll do it in a bit. I'm hungry actually."
"Okay, you call the doctor, and I'll go and get us some food," she said before rushing out. I sighed and grabbed my phone, dialing the doctor's office. The only appointment available was on Wednesday afternoon at three. I wasn't working Wednesday so I booked the appointment, even though I was displeased that they didn't have one any earlier. I wanted time to adjust to the situation and think about what to tell Edward.
I was still lying on my bed when my phone started ringing. Edward's name flashed across the screen, and I quickly answered it, wanting to hear his voice.
"Hello?" I said.
"Hello, love, how are you?" his velvety voice asked.
"Fine," I lied. "How are you?"
"Better now that I'm talking to you," he cooed.
"Cheese!" I laughed, feeling better already.
"What are you doing today?" he asked.
"Just spending time with your sister. We're going to shop for your Valentine's present," I said.
"Love, I just want you in a bow. Preferably naked," he purred.
"You can have that, too, but I'm still getting you a present," I told him.
"Okay, love, will you still be able to get me from the airport?"
"Yes, I'll be there when your flight lands," I promised.
"Good, I can't wait to see you," he said. "I want you back in my arms so much," he whispered desperately.
"I want that, too, Edward, so much," I replied softly. I heard a shout from in the background before Edward sighed.
"Okay, sweetie, I'll be there in a second," he whispered away from the phone. "Love, I have to go."
"That's fine; I'll talk to you tonight," I said.
"Yes, once the munchkin is in bed I'll call you," he promised.
"Okay, love you, Edward."
"I love you, too, Bella," he whispered before hanging up.
Talking to Edward had made me feel much better, so I pulled myself out of bed and went into the kitchen where Alice was cutting some sandwiches.
"Yep, I have an appointment on Wednesday, and I just talked to Edward," I said with a smile.
"Did you tell him?"
"No, I want to tell him face to face," I explained.
"I guess while we are out getting his present, I need to buy some new clothes. My jeans are feeling a little tight."
"Yay! Shopping!" she shouted.
"Alice, please quit shouting. I just want to grab a few things for now. I don't want to do any major shopping. I'll leave that for later."
"Only if you promise to go with me on your next day off," she huffed.
"Not my next day, the one after," I counter offered.
"Deal!" she bellowed.
"Good lord, Alice, quit with the fucking screaming already. Damn."
"Sorry," she said sheepishly.
"Let's get going. I might just let you grab me some things while I go shop for Edward's present. How does that sound?"
"Like a plan, because I really do not wish to see what you get him," she replied with a sour look on her face.
"Oh, Alice, like I would share that with you. I'm not that mean," I laughed out.
"Hey, don't laugh at me. The thought of my brother doing that is just nasty. Now, grab your things so we can go."
"Yes, ma'am," I said with a salute. I stuffed the rest of my sandwich in my mouth, threw the paper plate in the trash, grabbed my things from the living room, and walked out the door, making sure to lock it behind me. Alice was already sitting behind the wheel of her Range Rover sporting a hurry the hell up look. I gave her my best smile and hopped in. She said nothing as she backed out of the parking space and started our journey to the mall. We made meaningless chit chat while she wove in and out of the Memphis traffic. She was going to shop at Macy's while I went to Victoria Secret, Carters, and Kay Jewelers. Thirty minutes later, we pulled into the mall parking lot and lucked out and found a space near the entrance. We went our separate ways and agreed to meet at the food court in two hours. Two hours should be long enough to get what we needed.
My first stop was Victoria Secret, where I skimmed the racks, grabbing different pieces to try on. I had about fifteen hanging from my left arm so I decided it was time to go try them on. The first five were just not me. They showed way too much skin, and I wasn't aiming for that. However, the sixth piece was my absolute favorite. It was a black and white piece that had white around the breasts continuing down the middle with black lace covering it. The sides were solid black, and to complete the look there were black stockings. I knew without a doubt that this was the one I wanted so I didn't bother trying on all the others. I undressed and dressed back into my own clothes, then gathered the items so I could hang them on the rack outside the dressing room. Before I went to check out, I grabbed some new underwear from the bins they had near the front of the store. I picked out about ten different pairs, and then headed to check out. There wasn't a line therefore I was out in no time. My next stop was Carters, so I headed in that direction. I was perusing the racks when I found a t-shirt that said 'I'm going to be a big sister'. Perfect! After checking out for the second time, I headed for my final stop, Kay Jewelers. There weren't that many customers in the store thus getting someone to help me wasn't that hard.
"Hello, welcome to Kay Jewelers, my name is Megan. How may I assist you?" she asked.
"Hello, my name is Bella, and I'm looking for dog tags. A friend of mine was telling me that you do personalized ones here?"
"Yes, ma'am, we do. Did you want it engraved today, or did you want to come pick it up another time?"
"Is there any way I can get it done today? It's my boyfriend's Valentine's Day present," I asked, sounding hopeful.
"Yes, ma'am, however, there is a fifty dollar charge for rush orders. Is that all right?"
"Yes, I'll pay whatever to have it today."
"All right then. Let me just show you the ones that engravable," she replied, taking out a few boxes. "We have Titanium and Stainless Steel. Those are the only ones we have for men."
"Okay, may I see the ones you have in Titanium?" I asked, and she pulled them out of the box. The last one she pulled out I just knew was the one I wanted to get. No matter the cost. It was a diamond cross dog tag, and I absolutely loved it, and I knew Edward would, too.
"Do you see one you like?"
"Yes, I want the diamond cross dog tag."
"Would you like to know the price?"
"Please," I replied.
"If you get the 22-inch chain it will be $249.03 but with the rush fee it will come out to $299.03 plus tax. With the 24-inch chain it will be $251.53 and with the rush fee it will be $301.53 plus tax."
"I would like the 24-inch, please."
"Yes, ma'am, would you please write what you would like it to say on this sheet of paper," she said, sliding it over to me.
"Sure," I replied. I wrote down exactly what I wanted it to say on the lines indicated before sliding it back to her. "How long before its ready?"
"About thirty minutes. Feel free to browse the store," she responded. I nodded my head and started looking around. I glanced in a few cases before deciding to take a seat in one of the chairs, where I pulled out my phone. I wanted to text Edward but knew that if I did then I would surely tell him so I refrained and played a game of Angry Birds. Before I knew it thirty minutes was up and I was paying for Edward's gift. After thanking Megan for her help, I headed to the food court to meet Alice. She wasn't that hard to find because she was the only one who had way too many shopping bags.
"Good lord, Alice. Did you buy the whole store?" I questioned.
"No, silly, some of this is for me. But most of it is yours. I went a little crazy," she answered.
"Apparently," I uttered.
"I ordered us some cheese sticks, a pepperoni pizza, and some drinks from Sbarro. I hope you don't mind."
"Not at all; I'm starving," I said. No sooner had I said that they were bringing us our food. We made mindless chit chat while we ate but nothing too serious. Soon we were heading back to the car so we could leave. Nightfall was starting to come about, and all I wanted to do was get home, take a shower, talk to Edward, and go to bed. I was tired. Alice helped me carry in my bags and made me promise to call her if I didn't like something so she could take it back. After putting everything away, I jumped in the shower to wash the day off. I washed with my cumber-melon body wash and washed my hair with my strawberry shampoo. When I was finished with my shower, I dried off, put on my comfy pajamas, and got comfortable in bed. I must have dozed off while waiting for Edward's phone call because my alarm was going off and it was six am. This was my routine for the next couple of days. I would fall asleep before talking to Edward, wake up at six, throw up, go to work, and do it all over again. My morning sickness had intensified, and people at work were starting to get suspicious. I didn't know how much longer I could hide it.
Finally, Wednesday arrived, and I was in the shower before my alarm went off at eleven. I was so nervous that I couldn't sleep so I decided to get up. I took my time in the shower, just letting the water track down me until it started to turn cold. I turned off the shower and dried off and put on my robe. I went to the kitchen and fixed myself a bowl of Honey Nut Cheerios and messed around on Facebook. I played a few of my games and commented on a few friends' posts. I shut down my computer, washed my dishes, and headed back to my room to get dressed. I didn't hurry with my hair or my makeup because I was just killing time before I had to leave here at two, and it was still only twelve thirty now. When I was finished with my makeup, I went to my closet and pulled out a pair of jeans, a blue long sleeve shirt, and my Georgia boots. I still had time to kill so I decided to watch TV, and just my luck, one of my favorite shows was on, Pawn Stars. I loved it. Two episodes later, I was turning off the TV and grabbing my things. I put my coat on, grabbed my bag, locked the door, and headed for the doctor. Traffic was a nightmare, but I made it to the office ten minutes before my appointment was scheduled. I grabbed my bag and got out my car because if I sat there any longer I was going to be late. I went in and signed in and waited for them to call my name. Five minutes after three, the nurse called my name to go back. She handed me a cup and told me to go pee in it, then to meet her at the scale. I did my business in the bathroom, and then went to the scale. She weighed me, took my blood pressure, pricked my finger, drew blood, and then led me to a room and told me to undress and put on the paper cover to cover my breasts and then to use the sheet to cover up my bottom half. I did what she told me to and waited for the doctor to come in. A few minutes later, there was a knock on the door followed by the handle turning.
"Hello, Ms. Swan, it's nice to see you again," Dr. Morgan said.
"Hey, Dr. Morgan, how are you?" I asked.
"I'm doing all right," he responded as he took a seat. "What brings you here today?"
"Well, about a week ago I started throwing up, and I thought I was coming down with the flu because I've been around so many patients that have it at work. But then I started taking notes of my symptoms and they didn't add up so I assumed that maybe I was pregnant. My assumption was right. A few days ago, I went and bought a pregnancy test –well six, but who's counting—and they were all positive. So, here I am," I replied.
"Six tests, Bella? You being a nurse, you should know that one was enough," he laughed out.
"I know, but I wanted to be sure."
"I understand. Let me step out and get Michelle, and then we will do the exam," he responded as he stood up. I nodded my head at him as he stepped out. He returned a few seconds later with Michelle.
"All right, Bella, I need you to scoot back and place your feet flat on the table for me," he said. I did what he said and waited for him to start the exam. He did what he needed to do and then told me to sit up. "Well, you are definitely pregnant, Bella. The sample you left when you arrived came out positive and your uterus is consistent with being pregnant. I want to say you are around ten weeks but I'm not positive so I'm going to go grab the machine so we can do an internal ultrasound. It's too early to use the wand."
"I can't be any more than ten weeks so it's either that or less," I responded. He chuckled and walked out the room. He came back a few minutes later with the ultrasound machine.
"Okay, this time you are going to have to put your feet in the stirrups." I did as I was told as he prepped the thing that looked like a dildo. I tell you, having an internal ultrasound is not fun, but it was worth it when I saw my child on the screen. I stared in awe, tuning out the doctor as he talked and took measurements. Almost as soon as it started, it was over, but I had pictures to stare at now.
"Well? Everything okay?" I asked.
"Everything is perfect. I was correct; you are ten weeks. So in two weeks you will need to come back so we can get you on schedule with everything. I'm going to give you a prescription for prenatal vitamins and Diclectin. Be sure to take your prenatal vitamins everyday; do not skip a day. If you have any questions, problems, or concerns you can call me. I know you are a nurse, but still, first time moms are allowed to freak out. Here are your pictures, and be sure to schedule an appointment for two weeks from today. Okay?"
"All right. I'll see you in two weeks."
"See you then. You can get dressed, and then you're free to go."
"Not a problem," he said, closing the door behind him. I let out a sigh and proceeded to get dressed. I placed my prescriptions in my bag and went to make an appointment. My appointment was set for February 27th at ten am. This time I hoped Edward would be here with me. I took note of the time, and it was just after five, so I decided to get the prescriptions filled while I shopped for groceries –the only thing I like to shop for—and give Edward a call at the same time. I knew he was meeting with the lawyers today to get Tanya to sign the papers. I pulled out my iPhone and tabbed Edward's name from my recent calls list. I had just transferred the call so it would come through my speakers when he answered.
"Hey, baby. How's munchkin? Have you met with the lawyers yet?"
"Munchkin is just fine; she's with Mom and Dad. I'm just now fixing to meet with them so hopefully she will sign."
"I hope so, too, baby. I'm heading to the grocery story now, so call me when your meeting is finished."
"I will, love. Be careful. I love you."
"I love you, too." We said I love you one more time before hanging up. I let out a sigh and parked my car. An hour later, I was walking out of the store with my purchases and heading home. It took a few trips to get everything inside and about ten minutes to put everything away. I had just finished fixing myself some dinner when my phone rang. It was Edward.
"Hey, love. How are you?"
"I'm all right. I just finished making some dinner."
"What did you make?"
"Chicken fingers, mashed potatoes, and corn."
"Sounds good. You'll have to make it for me while I'm down."
"You know I will. Speaking of which, don't you have to get ready to leave for the airport?"
"Yes, I do. I was just calling you to say I love you and I'll see you when I land."
"I love you too. I'll see you in the morning."
"Okay, give munchkin a kiss for me and tell her I love her and will see her soon."
"You know I will. Goodnight, love."
"Goodnight," I whispered. We hung up, and I stared at my phone for a few minutes before I started eating. I only ate a little before putting the rest into containers and putting them in the fridge. I washed off my dishes and put them in the dishwasher. I decided to take a bubble bath just to relax to try to reduce my anxiety about tomorrow. I turned on the water to my bathtub –making sure it wasn't too hot— poured some bubble bath in, swished it around, and undressed. I carefully lowered myself in and sighed in comfort. I thought about all the ways tomorrow could go. I would tell Edward, and he would either me happy or mad. I was hoping for happy but it was a little too soon. Ugh. Why did my pill have to fail? Why was I just that little tiny tenth of a percent? There was no going back though. I already loved my baby, and I would do anything to protect him or her. I pushed those thoughts out of my head and started washing and trimming. After making sure everything was neat and trimmed, I pulled the plug and stood up. I dried off and put on my comfy pajamas. My eye lids were starting to close so I decided it was time for bed. I plugged in my phone and noticed I had a text from Alice.
Good luck tomorrow! Don't worry, he will be ecstatic about the baby. ILY B –A
Thanks, Alice. I'm hoping he will. This didn't come at a good time, ya know? – B
I know, B, but he will be happy no matter what. You will see TTYL – A
TTYL – B
I shot off a quick text to Edward telling him to have a safe flight and that I loved him. He didn't respond so I figured he was trying to get out the door. As soon as my head hit the pillow I was out. Thursday morning came, and I excitedly hopped out of bed. My morning sickness hadn't hit yet, and I hoped it stayed that away for at least today. I put lotion on every inch of my skin before putting on my new black bra and panty set. Over that, I pulled on a black and white dress which was lacy at the top and flowed loosely at the bottom. I slipped into some black suede pumps, put on a light layer of makeup, straightened my hair, and grabbed my coat and bag as I headed out to get Edward. His flight was due to land in an hour and a half, so by the time I got there, found a parking space, and walked to the arrivals gate, he should be landing. I had just stepped out my door when I realized that I didn't grab anything to eat nor did I take my prenatal pills, so I headed back inside to grab a bottle of water, my prenatal pills, and a pop-tart –not very healthy for a pregnant woman I knew, but still— I popped them into the toaster and waited for them to pop up. While I waited, I slipped on my white coat –silently hoping I didn't get anything on it—and grabbed a paper plate from the cabinet. As soon as they popped, I grabbed them, my water, my pill, and walked out the door. On my way to the airport, I stuffed my face and took my vitamin. An hour later, I pulled onto the airport grounds and followed the signs leading me to the arrivals parking lot. I had just parked the car when Edward sent me a text letting me know he had landed and he was working his way through security. I bolted from the car and made my way toward his gate, which was gate 11, and found a spot to stand. I was leaning against a poll when I saw his messy bronze hair over the crowd. I stood up straight and began to unconsciously bounce on my toes, placing my hands onto my stomach.
"That's your daddy," I whispered happily. As Edward got closer, he spotted me. His green eyes met my brown eyes, and I took off into a run. He stood still and dropped his bag, caching me as I threw myself into his arms.
"Bella," he sighed happily as I buried my head in the crook of his neck.
"I missed you!" I exclaimed, kissing his neck.
"I missed you too, love, you have no idea," he replied as I pulled back and stretched up onto my toes to kiss him deeply. We pulled apart, and he grabbed his bag as I lead him out to the car. I slid into the driver seat while he threw his bag in the back of the car and then climbed in next to me.
"How long do I have you for?" I asked.
"Just until tomorrow night. I wish I could stay longer."
"It's all right. One night is good enough for me," I replied. "How has your week been?" I asked. He then set off filling me in on everything that had happened at work, with his family, and with munchkin. I was really glad to hear that she was excited about moving to live here with me within the next few weeks. I pulled into my apartment complex and parked. Edward jumped out and walked around to open my door for me. I gave him a light kiss as I thank you and locked the car after he had his bag. I led him inside and we sat down on the couch.
"What do you want to do tonight? Do you want to go out or stay in?" he asked.
"I really don't feel like dealing with the crowd tonight so why don't we just stay in? I can make us something and we can just stay in our own little bubble until you have to leave tomorrow night."
"That sounds nice. What did you have in mind for dinner?"
"I was thinking about lemon pepper chicken off the rotisserie with potatoes, green beans, and corn."
"That sounds delicious."
"I thought you would like it," I responded. Instead of a reply, he just crushed his lips to mine, and our tongues met in a frenzy.
"Tell me to stop, Bella. Otherwise, I won't. I need you so bad," he said as he kissed down my neck.
"No, don't stop," I said as my lips met his again. Soon our clothes were scattered across the living room and his mouth and fingers were working my pussy. God how I had missed his mouth. He had me screaming and riding out an orgasm within five minutes. I couldn't take it anymore, I needed him to fuck me. My hormones were already out of whack, and he was just making it worse. I needed him to fuck me.
"Fuck me, Edward. Fuck me," I groaned out.
"With pleasure, love." He started to reach for his pants which I knew housed a condom but I stopped him, shaking my head. He grinned at me and slid his cock between my slick folds. I moaned at the contact. He sat up, bringing me with him, until his back was against the couch and I was straddling his knees.
"Ride me, Bella," he commanded, and I attacked his lips. I worked my hips in a circular motion before lifting up and slamming back down. Edward's hands gripped my ass, grinding me into him as I came back down; my hands were in his hair, pulling at it with every move. The next thing I knew, I was on my back with my legs thrown over is shoulders as he thrust into me.
"God..Edward..yes," I moaned out.
"Fuck, Bella. Touch yourself," He grunted in between thrusts. My hand trailed down my body, and I hissed as I came into contact with my clit. "Fuck."
He slammed into me and hit a spot he has never hit before, and the feeling it caused made me see stars.
"Right there..right fucking there," I moaned. He let out a grunt and hit the spot once again. My free hand found its way into my hair. I was so far gone that when I came, I couldn't formulate words, so I just screamed and, Edward was right there with me. He collapsed beside me as we panted for breath.
"Damn..that was..awesome," he panted out.
"Totally..agree." We laid there for a few minutes before our breathing evened out.
"Shower?" he asked with a grin.
"Race ya there," I said as I jumped off the couch, with him right behind me. Our shower wasn't so innocent, and that led to another round that was just as mind blowing as the one before. When we finally made it out, I was beat and wanted a nap, but I had to start dinner. As I prepared the chicken, Edward helped me by peeling and chopping the potatoes so they could boil for the mashed potatoes. When we are finished with those, he did the green beans while I shucked the corn and put it on the stove to cook. He decided that he wanted a salad to go with it so he prepared that as I put the finishing touches on dinner. I had just turned down the burners when Edward's phone rang.
"Love, can you answer that for me?" he asked as he chopped the tomatoes.
"Mommy! I miss you!" she shouts.
"Munchkin! I miss you too, sweetheart!" I exclaim.
"I can't wait to come live with you. It's boring here without you."
"I can't wait either, baby. It's lonely here without you. How's school going?"
"I don't like it. Daddy can't do my hair the way I like it, and my friend's pick on me. I want to be with you," she whines.
"I know, baby, and you will be in a few weeks. I promise. I love you."
"I love you, too. May I talk to Daddy?"
"Of course. Here he is," I said, handing Edward the phone. He talked with a whiney Lyss who was begging to come here. Lyss didn't get the answer she wanted so she hung up, and Edward looked defeated.
"I wish we could move down here already. It's killing me to be away from you, and Lyss absolutely hates me because she can't be with you either. I don't care what I have to do; I will be here in two weeks. Screw everything else."
"Honey, you know you can't rush. Lyss is just being a normal six year old little girl who isn't with her mom all the time. I'm the only mom she knows, no thanks to that bitch of a wife of yours."
"Ex-wife," he whispered, and I stopped dead in my tracks.
"Ex-wife?" I gasped.
"She signed the papers and the judge signed off. I'm no longer linked to her."
"Are you serious? Wait, he went ahead and signed off? I thought they had to be processed and that alone would take months."
"He wasn't going to at first but then she showed her true colors and he signed off. As of yesterday, I am no longer married."
"Holy shit!" I yelled as I jumped in his arms. I kissed every inch of his face I could before I finally kissed his lips. I was bursting with so much excitement that I didn't think I could wait any longer to tell him the news. "Stay right here. I want to give you your present now. I can't wait any longer," I said as I ran out of the kitchen. I knew that once I gave him this, dinner would be forgotten, but I didn't care. I had to tell him. I grabbed the Kay bag, along with the ultrasound picture out of my nightstand. I walked back to the kitchen literally floating on cloud nine, hopeful that this could work for us after all. Edward was standing in the same spot I left him, and he came to me as I entered the kitchen.
"Do you want to sit in the living room?" he asked.
"Yeah, I think you may want to sit," I said as I turned to walk to the living room. I took a seat on the couch and waited for him to join me.
"I turned the burners off. I get the feeling that what you are going to give me is going to shock the shit out of me."
"You may be right," I said. He sat across from me, and I handed him the bag, but kept the picture in my hand. He took the box out of the bag and threw the bag on the floor. I took a deep breath and kept it in as he opened the box that would forever change our lives. I saw the confusion in his eyes as he picked up the dog tags.
"Turn it over" I whispered. He did what I told him, and his eyes darted to mine.
"Really?" he whispered.
"Yeah," I said as I handed him the picture.
"When? How far along?" he shooted at me as he stared at the picture in awe.
"First night. Ten weeks," I responded.
"A baby," he murmured. "I'm going to be a dad again!"
"Yes you are," I said. The next thing I knew I was in his arms, and he was kissing me all over.
"Oh my god, Bella! This is incredible! I love you! I love you so much!" he shouted, and I laughed.
"I love you, too," I replied. He picked me up and carried me to our room. He set the picture on the dresser and put the tags over his neck before laying me down on the bed. He pulled my shirt up over my stomach and gently brought his hands to cover it while he whispered, "I'm your daddy. I love you so much, little one. I can't wait for you to get here," as he caressed my stomach.
He then looked up at me and said, "I love you, Bella. You've just made me the happiest man in the world."
I leaned up and kissed him gently on the lips. Dinner was soon forgotten and our clothes were scattered everywhere as we got lost in each other. Our moves were not hurried like before this was just us making love.
"Happy Valentine's Day," I whispered to him.
"Happy Valentine's Day. I love you," He murmured.
"I love you, too."
Most of us wish to be this.
