Baby Blues

By Aletta_Feather

Fantasy / Drama

Baby Blues

"Hank, it's too dangerous. I don't want to." 

Mystique is pregnant with their second baby and Hank wants her to go to the hospital since the baby has suddenly stopped moving. Recent events have strained human-mutant relations and although Hank is in good standing in both communities, Mystique's old distrust has increased during the pregnancy. Probably hormones. Knowing his wife's stubbornness, Hank lets the matter rest for now. He is considering calling in the big guns, in this case her brother Charles.

"Please, can you tell her to go. I'm worried sick and she will not listen to me. You know what she is like…" Hank has him on the phone. 

Charles smiles, despite the situation; he is all too familiar with her moods. "I'll see what I can do." 

"Your brother on the phone…" 

"You're unbelievable," she replies. He receives a nasty glance.

"You know if you don't listen, I could use Cerebro and make you." 

"Charles, really? Threatening me?" 

"We're worried. Don't let your issues get in the way of seeking medical support." 

"You should know better than to threaten me, Professor X!" She slams the phone down. Charles realizes she is seriously angry; Mystique never uses that name unless she is livid. 

"Your decision," he mumbles.

It takes him hardly any time to track down Mystique. She is arguing with Hank and he is about to do the unforgivable and make her visit the hospital, when he has an idea. He could try… It might work. Charles focusses on the baby instead of Mystique. Could it be possible? She is pretty far along…

The baby is fine. Fast asleep, very fast asleep, but perfectly alright, as far as he can tell. He can see that it is a beautiful boy. Best not tell that to the parents yet, he thinks as he picks up the phone to share the news.

littlebunnypoopoos: Omg this was so amazing! The ending was a little bad and predictable. But otherwise, I need a second book or I'll die :D The character development was excellent and the whole romance, action, and suspense was superb

Marijana1: The melancholy present throughout this story has the power to influence and etch into the minds of the readers, to stay there and refuse to leave even after they have finished reading the story. This is a deep, powerful story, making the readers wonder about everything – about love, about their e...

Stephen Warner: To start off, I am thoroughly impressed. The writing style is somewhat unique, and the plot seemed to move at a nice and steady pace. However, I was not expecting this to be a vampire book! I am usually not one for novels about vampires, but I was pleasantly surprised! You wrote with such grace a...

amarin8388: Bottom Line: I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys Science Fiction. During my reading, I thought many times that this would make a good story for a movie. It reminded me of the StarWars movie franchise, not because of the plot but because of the diversity of chara...

Bri Hoffer: I couldn't put it down!! The characters are all incredibly likable, and it's so descriptive you can see, smell, and feel thier surroundings. Great story, and very well written. I cannot wait for follow up stories. there were a few grammatical errors, but nothing that I could move right over.

Satabda Chatterjee: Each and every charecter develops during the whole course of the journey and keeps secretly love for the princess . However the way that writter expressed each situatuons that the princess faced quite relevant and keeps the suspense always at the end of the chapter. . . .which makes the reader m...

Laraine Smith: You are a true artist! You should do this for a living! I love the imagery here! It is magical! You are magical!

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly. I do not believe the author put the apostrophes in the names just to be unique, but because the characters are supposedly of a different race than humans. They are Anmah. They should have different names a...

allisonflin: Without a doubt the most well written story that I have read on this site. Informative, discriptive, well punctuated. Then we have the story itself, which by the way I am waiting on the edge of my seat for part two of, the characters are more than likeable, you feel them and their emotions...

Lauren Sanby: This is an excellent story. Very gripping and keeps your attention throughout. Hoping the author is writing a sequel because I'd love to read more about Rhi and Andreas and find out what else Rhi is able to do with her powers.

Alex Rushmer: Chapter One: Not much is happening in this chapter, but I was absolutely fascinated by the depth of your character development. I love how you just sat there with the reader and explored Eddward. Usually, that sort of thing gets boring very fast, but this was actually really cool! He's so unique ...

brettylee: The narrative is slick yet punchy. Life, Family and Friends I believe is the core message so it’s easy to relate to. It’s surprisingly action packed. The author does a good job at keeping you guessing. Just when you think all is right, whack, the unexpected happens. The dialogue is energetic and ...
