She smiled weakly at him as he leaned in and teased her about having her babies on her mind so much lately that she was dreaming about them. He was right. But she didn't want to stop dreaming about her babies, she wanted to bring them into this life and make sure they had good lives. He leaned down and kissed her. She was so tired, but she gave him a soft gentle kiss back and as she opened her eyes he moved to the side and there were the precious bundles. Tears ran down her cheeks as she stared at her children sleeping beautifully. One wrapped in pink the other wrapped in blue. Little matching caps on their head They were so beautiful. She clutched her husbands' hand.
"They're so beautiful."
She looked up at him and nodded when he asked if she wanted to hold them. And she did. Nodding softly she pressed the button on the bed that would enable her to sit up slightly. She settled herself and readied herself for him to give her the children that she loved so much already. He handed them to her. Ryan then Noa. She had both arms holding their children. Looking down at them. They were both so tiny even in her arms. Her fingers stroked their tiny cheeks. They were so beautiful. Her tears wouldn't stop falling.
"Ryan.. and your sister. Noa.. and.. mommy and daddy.. we're your mommy and daddy." she whispered softly. "Kazuma.. come.. come hold our children." she said looking up at him softly
She seemed so happy to see them, the little bundles she had carried for just about 9 months, they were finally here and ready to be loved. When she was ready he gently picked up the children and brought them over one by one to be held by their mother. They were so tiny and wrinkly, he couldn’t believe there was once a time he was just as helpless and just as small. He soon got them into the arms of their mother who seemed to be overflowing with tears of joy as she held them to her.
She looked so natural being a mother, he knew these children where her dream above all other things. She had made it clear then she was even willing to give up her scholarship at Juiliard in New York if it was going to interfere with her life as a mother. What ever she chose though he knew they would be alright, they had made enough money to keep them living comfortably even with the children for years to come without seriously needing to work. He knew they both wanted to give their children the one thing they had been forced to skip, a true child hood filled with love and parents that would be their for them no matter what.
He leaned down next to his wife and smiled. “No baby its okay…my nerves are still shot…I just feel to shakey to hold them right now” he said honestly to her, what had happened had made him clench his hands so hard before his palms were entirely black and blue. But yet he could not stop smiling now seeing her well and their children in her arms.
“Besides…I’ll get to hold them all I’ll want while your sleeping…I know you have to be exhausted still” he said softly “It was a long night…but it was worth it” he said gently kissing her temple softly while his eyes looked down to his children “I love you Teneile…and I love the family you have given me”
He said no, but she could understand. She imagined that he was a bit upset still from the ordeal that they had been through. She had lost a lot of blood and was very weak. But she would be alright with rest and when the transfusion ended. It would take a bit of time as well. She moved over in the bed though, she didn't like him standing there beside her. Not with her, not experiencing their children. Afterall, they were his too and she wanted him to be sure that he knew that he was part of the family that they had created. She didn't want him to think that he was not part of the family. Because it was his dream too that they had made come true, and she wanted to be sure that he understood she was not letting him off the hook just because he was being nervous.
"Come sit by me baby. This is your family too. And you wanted it as badly as I did." she said as she looked up at him.
She couldn't pat the bed beside her because her hands were both full. But he knew that it was an implied pat. As he moved the bed, getting in he jostled the babies who woke and began to whine. She knew that they had to be hungry. She lifted up the flap on her hospital gown and turned the babies so that they could feed, and they did. She winced at the slight pain, they were sore, but she would get used to it. She leaned over to Kazuma slightly putting her head on his shoulder.
"It's our family baby. Our precious family. The little ones we always wanted. Just wait til we can take them to the beach to play in the sand. Or when they play with the dogs. And when Ryan asks you to work out with him, or when Noa does her first recital... so many things to come." she smiled softly looking down at their children.
He came and sat with her as she wished him to, as soon as he got near them he felt himself finally calming down a bit, seeing her look so happy holding their children was finally letting his nerves relax. She was going to make the perfect loving mother, they both knew it and she had been studying and looking into parenting books as soon as she had heard she was pregnant. They both knew raising two children was going to be an adventure but it was one they were both looking forward to.
The children whined lightly as they woke up gently hungry. Just as he expected her to she shifted and moved the flap of her gown and both babies began to feed for the first time. As they feed she leaned over resting on his shoulder. He sighed happily, she sounded so thrilled meanwhile he was just happy she was alright after what had just gone on several hours ago.
“Rocky and bella are not going to like the fact they won’t be able to play with the babies right away” Kazuma chuckled “I know they have been listening to your tummy almost as much as I did”
He looked to her “They look beautiful…Noa is gunna be just as gorgeous as her mother…and Rayn…well lets just hope he takes after you as well, hate for him to have my rough mug” Kazuma joked lightly to his beloved.
“I called your friends from your dance company while you were asleep…they all want to see the babies when you feel up to it” he told her smiling gently as his arm came around her effectively holding his new family in his crooked arm
She smiled up at him. She knew that he loved them too, but there was no real love until you were holding one. She looked up into his eyes and leaned over kissing his lips softly just once. She knew that he loved her. And she knew that he would love the children too when he was done being so afraid. She could tell that was what it was. They were so small and tiny. Being twins they were smaller than if she had merely given birth to one child. She cuddled with her husband as he told her about the dancers that were all too excited to see the children and were waiting for Kazuma to call them so that they knew it was safe to come and visit. She smiled up at him. He was a good husband.
"Call them when you're ready baby, but probably not til tomorrow, you're right. I am tired. And to be honest. Your family will be here sooner rather than later."
When the little ones had their fill she pulled the one up, her little boy Ryan to her shoulder, but she could not burp them both at the same time. She gently handed Noa to her father.
"I cannot burp them both, and neither of us want her to cry all night. Take your daughter Kazuma. Burp her for me." she said handing the little girl to her father. She really didn't give Kazuma much of a choice, she placed the little pink bundle in his arms.
The little girl fidgeted, and her little blue eyes opened slowly. She made a little grunt at him, her little tongue coming out to run across her lower lip for a moment. Her little hands reaching up towards her father tiny fingers wigging. Teneile chuckled.
The little guys soon were full, atleast for now they were. They had already been warned the children would want to eat constantly and sleep even more. He had a feeling him nor Tenniele would experience a good nights sleep until they got the babies on something other then their mothers milk, but that to would be a while since she had already made it clear she intended to breast feed for as long as possible.
Before he knew it she handed Noa over to him, after first their was a clear look of fear on him, he loved his daughter but he knew exactly what his powerful hands could do…and his baby was so tiny atleast to him, adorable but tiny. His wife told him his daughter needed to be burped his blue eyes looked at her. Had she forgotten what he had done to that plastic doll the first time in parenting class? He sighed and his eyes looked down to his daughter
She fidgeted in his hands gently as her little blue eyes opened before grunting at him which made him chuckle. Not even speaking and already she showed she was opinionated. Then he swore his eye saw her smiling at him as her tiny hands reached up, those stubby pink finger wiggling
“Its either that or she finds my hair amusing and wants to play with it” Kazuma chuckled, He raised his daughter up to him his large hands hoding her in the air, a large smile on his face as he looked to her.
“She’s perfect…absolutely perfect just like her brother” he then brought her closer to his body and gently burped her over his shoulder bouncing her gently as he did so until he heard her burp which made him chuckle.
“I can’t believe I’m some ones daddy” he said with a gentle smile
