“B-but I thought he loved me!” I protested, for the fifth time.
“Honey, your too good for him. He needs a girl… More in his league, you know?”
I pulled away from Ocean, wiping my tears. “So who’s the father again?” I asked, patting my hand on her swelling stomach.
“I- I really don’t feel comfortable talking about him right now, we’re trying to keep our relationship on the down low…” she trailed off, looking increasingly uncomfortable.
“Oh I understand…” something didn’t feel right… Like something was going to happen in any second…
When I look back at this, I guess I was right.
“Um, Freesia? WHAT THE HECK IS HAPPENING?”
I just laughed at her and pushed her words off.
“Yeah, Ocean, this is what happens when you give birth. Unless you want to be scarred for life, I suggest you leave the room in about 2 minutes.” I chuckled a little, Ocean was freaking out asking if she should call an ambulance, whilst I was shaking her off and telling her to leave the room. There’s a fun story for the kids.
And soon my daughter was born.
“Hey there little one, what should I call you?” She had my eyes, my beautiful white eyes, she also had my hair, I could see little wisps of it on her precious little head. “How about Sugar Blossom huh?” she cooed, and reached her little arms out to me. “Sugar Blossom it is,” I whispered.
But another little surprise came! I also have birth to a bouncing baby boy, whom got a regular name compared to his siblings. “Hey there Gavin, how are you?”
Months went by, my babies were angels.
My babies could be devils.
But soon, it was time for all of my children to grow up.
“I didn’t think you’d come.”
“Why not? They’re my children after all.”
“They aren’t yours, Forrest, they’re mine, you’re just the father.”
The children were excited, ecstatic, the party was a semi-success, seeing that only Ocean and Forrest came because my other friend was sick.
“Are you ready to become a big five year old?”
“Yes Momma yes!” Clover Leaf was so adorable. He had been looking forward to his fifth birthday, but didn’t want anything except his Dad and cake to be there. How was I to say no to him?
“I’m ready Momma! Let me blow out the pretty flames!”
But Clover blew a little too hard on the pretty flames…
I screamed, and moved away from the fire with lightning speed, keeping Clover away from it.
Luckily Forrest still knew where the fire extinguisher was, so we put the fire out in no time at all.
(Author’s note: How do you think I was coping with all this? Nearly tearing my hair out, first twins, then fire, then Ocean giving birth –.-)
We soon grabbed one of the twins’ cakes, and let Clover blow that out instead.
“I’m a big boy now Mom!” Clover told me while giving me a giant hug.
“Yes you are baby, and you’re so handsome too!”
“You and your brother ready to grow up?”
Sugar giggled. “I take that as a yes!”
Oh yes, I’m in trouble now.
