Chapter 60. Terrified
I laid there in shock as I listened closely and heard the two heartbeats, then I understood why it sounded weird at first. There were two of them.
"Snap out of it you two" the obstetrician said and shook the both of us. "You need to embrace this blessing and savor the moment...so come on now, focus" he said and went back to rubbing the metal thing on my tummy.
"Right here is baby A, and over here is baby B" the doctor said as he pointed out to me where the babies were and I couldn't even stop the tears that were falling from my eyes.
Alando looked at me and I saw genuine happiness.
"Thank you" he whispered as he placed a kiss on my lips. "You are so wonderful and I love you so much, not only did you give me a baby but you had to be extra and give me two, oh my God"
"Technically, you're the one who did all the work" I said as I blushed and he chuckled.
"So by the next five months if all goes well, this young lady and this little guy will be gracing us with their presence" the doctor continued
I looked at the doctor then at Alando.
"Yes, we're having a girl and a boy" Alando confirmed.
"Now that we know this, Dr. King I know I dont have to tell you how important it is for you to take care of them, plenty of rest, no stress, fruits, vegetables the whole works"
"Yes I know, trust and believe that I will be taking care of them, I love them so much" he said and kissed me again, this time it was a bit more intimate than the kiss before.
His pager went off and we were forced to break the moment.
"Oh damn it" he said as he looked at the pager.
"In this day and age y'all are still using pagers?" I asked and both doctors laughed.
"Yes we still do, as a matter of fact, nearly 80 percent of hospitals still use pagers, according to a study from the Journal of Hospital Medicine. Doctors aren't just stubborn about leaving the dinosaur age of communication. ... Plus, unlike cell signals, which only go to the nearest cell tower, pagers send to multiple satellites so incase one tower goes down it quickly picks up another tower so the messages always go through" Alando answered proudly
"Okay nerd, go to work" I replied and he went out the door.
The door went ahead and did the regular checks, blood pressure, urine, weight etc and confirmed that everything was normal and coming along fine although he did prescribe some prenatal medication.
"What are these for?" I asked him
"Taking a daily prenatal vitamin during pregnancy is essential. It’s one of the easiest ways to do something positive for your growing baby or in your case babies.
"Even if you’re eating a healthy diet, you may be missing important nutrients. A prenatal vitamin will fill in those gaps. It will also help support your baby’s growth and development. Popping that daily pill can even help prevent neural tube defects and anemia" he replied.
This was what I liked about him, he was kind and patient enough to explain or answer every question that I asked. I was comfortable with him and he was never inappropriate. Well, Alando did say he was the best so all of this was expected.
The doctor finished up and I got dressed and exited the room, Andre was in deep conversation with a dark skinned african looking intern. He waved when he saw me
"Hey sis, come meet my girl Alicia" he called out to me while making the poor intern look like she wanted to run.
"Hi..." I greeted as I walked over.
"Hello" she said shyly
"Sooo, will I be getting a niece or nephew?" He wasted no time in asking
"Both" I replied
And his eyes widened in shock.
"What! you're having twins?.... omg, just like Alando....."
"What do you mean just like Alando?" I asked
"Didn't he tell you?.... he was a twin as well but mom got into some difficulty during delivery and the other baby died, plus she had two miscarriages before, so he was known as the miracle child"
My heart sanked.
"I knew of the miscarriages but I didn't that Alando was a twin" I told him
"Oh I'm sorry, I thought he told you" he whispered
"No he didnt"
"It isn't something neither he or my mom likes to talk about as her mother also had multiple miscarriages" he told me.
Then I suddenly knew why Alando was so overprotective about me being safe. His family was plagued with miscarriages.
I touched my stomach and trembled slightly as I wondered if I too would also be a victim of miscarriage. To lose these babies would completely destroy Alando, I saw it in his eyes when he looked at me while the nurse was dressing the wounds on my back three months ago.
"Are you okay?" Andre asked when he noticed I was distracted.
"Yeah I'm fine, I just need to see your brother" I replied
"Okay, amma be here somewhere, just call me if you need anything"
"Thanks" I told him gratefully and headed for Alando's office.
I knocked on the door.
"Yeah..." he answered and I opened it.
Curious green eyes stared at me as I entered into the room.
"You okay?" He asked
"Yeah, I just needed to see you" I told him as I walked over and sat in his lap jockey style.
Without even thinking about it I began kissing him deeply, I pressed the button on the side of the chair making it recline a bit. I could feel his erection trying to find a way through his pants so I unzipped him freeing his member.
"What are you doing?" He asked but I didn't reply, instead I slid the smaller version of him inside me and I moaned when I felt it.
He didn't reject my actions, instead he let me have my way. I slowly went up and down on him as we stared into each others eyes. Oh god I missed this, I missed him so much that I came within ten seconds of him being inside me.
It was so intense that I bit him on his neck and it made him growl in ecstacy. He suddenly got up and placed me ot the edge of the desk and he slowly started to fuck me right here in his office.
"Three months without this pussy, I wanna fuck you so hard right now" he growled as he lifted my blouse along with my bra and stuffed one of my breasts in his mouth. His hot breath on my skin was enough to make me cum again.
"Arrgghhh" I cried out as I felt myself convulsed around him and he covered my mouth with his hand.
I could tell he wanted to go harder but tried to restrain himself as he continued to torment me slowly. He then placed the palm of his hand at the center of my back easing me up from the table a bit while holding my leg with his other hand as he sucked on my tongue.
My muscles began tightening around him again as my body shook violently and we both knew what was gonna happen next. I squealed as a signal for him to stop but instead he picked up pace touching the same spot over and over leaving me no choice but to squirt right there.
Still he didn't stop, he continued but now he was moaning and sucking on my neck and I didn't dare stop him, instead I dropped my head back a bit to give him better access. He showed his appreciation by sucking harder, I knew I would have a big hickey at the end of it but who cares, I was his to do what he wanted and he was mine.
"Go deeper" I begged and my wish was his command and shortly after his movement became a bit rough so I knew he was near. He hesitated a bit but I willed him to continue.
"I'm fine baby just fuck me" I told him and fuck me he did until he stiffened and released himself deep inside me.
"You two are so nasty, couldn't y'all wait til you got home to do this?" We heard a voice asked.
I froze as Alando looked up.
"Could you please get out my office?" He asked and I breathed a sigh of relief when I recognized voice.
"God I wish I could unsee all of that" he chuckled.
"Andre, you're getting on my last nerve" he snarled and his brother laughed and then I heard the door close.
"Thank God it was him and not someone else" I whispered
"Next time you plan on fucking me in my office lock the door" he grumbled as he withdrew himself from inside me.
"It was kinda a spur of the moment idea" I said in my own defense.
"Still, you should lock the door" he said again and I smiled
We cleaned up ourselves along with his office and he went to get us food as I felt like I was starving. He came back and we began eating.
"How come you didn't tell me that you were a twin? I asked and I saw his expression changed.
"I'm guessing my chatter box brother told you"
"Yeah he did" I replied
"It's not something I think about often" he answered quickly
"Its not something to be ashamed of either" I rebutted
He looked at me with narrowed eyes.
"I'm not ashamed.... I'm just a bit touchy about the subject"
"And now here you are having twins of your own" I said softly as I took another bite of chicken.
"Yes I think its God's way of replacing what we lost in the past" he replied
"I also know now why you are so hell bent on me being safe throughout this pregnancy" I told him.
We were silent for a moment until he spoke again and I listened keenly.
"When I got older and realised I had a twin sister who died during our birth, I was deeply affected, I kept wondering why did she die and I was spared, I thought of how easily it could've been me and not her" he sighed and after a while began speaking again "Dad said my mom was depressed for a year especially because of all the miscarriages that happened even with her mother, she thought the family was cursed. Then you came along, got pregnant and suddenly there was hope for us to break the horrible cycle, that's why I was so mad at you for getting into a fight with your ex, putting yourself at risk".
I closed my eyes and exhaled sharply as I remembered that drama.
"I know it may sound selfish but my family and I need these babies" and he paused and looked as if he was searching for the right words to say to make sure I understood what he was saying.
"I need them even more as I can't live with the idea of losing either of you, in fact
