Chapter 37: Twins
Rider she screamed I feel like I must push. No, do your breathing. Just then the midwife walked into the bedroom. It has been six hours and finally, the midwife said. Kelly, I need you to push. Push she said. Kelly pushed then we heard stop. The shoulders are out and then we heard crying.
You have a boy. Rider, I have to push again. What. The midwife handed me the baby and then I heard one more push, Kelly. Then another cry. You have a little girl. I looked at the babies and laughed. They are so beautiful I said. I watched the midwife wash the babies then hand them to me and told me to go wait in the living room while she cleaned Kelly up.
I could not believe that these two precious babies are finally here. Not that anyone was expecting two. I was too busy bonding with the babies that I did not hear the midwife call my name. Rider you can bring the babies in now. I carried them to the bedroom and over to their mother.
I sat down on the bed and she took the baby boy from me. I watched as she uncovered her breast and placed him on it. She did not seem embarrassed that I watched. She then burped him and handed him back to me while she took the baby girl and placed her on her other breast. I took the little girl from her and lay her next to her brother in the crib.
I walked over and sat next to Kelly and said. Kelly, they are beautiful. I turned and looked over at them. I swallowed. Kelly, I am afraid. Of what Rider? That you will leave and take them and back to Savage. I am not going to do that Rider. I felt her hand along the side of my face.
Rider what are you trying to say? I looked into her eyes. I have been through the last five months of your pregnancy, and now their births. Rider, Kelly I don’t want you to ever leave. I want to help you raise them. I want to be their father. I want to marry you. I felt my heart beating fast. Rider. He slowly turned his head and looked down at me.
I reached up and pulled him down towards me and kissed him. I slowly opened my mouth and let him explore it. Soon we drew apart. Rider you don’t have to do that I said. Kelly, you do not get it. I have fallen in love with you. I fell in love with them before they were even born. I supported you and was here while you gave birth.
I was the first man to hold them and bond with them. I think of them as my children. I will not beg but I will ask one more time. Will you legally marry me and let me claim you in front of my MC as my woman? Yes, I will. I had fallen for Rider since I have come back. He is a gentleman.
He never forced me to do anything I didn’t want to do. When I see him my heart beats so fast and I am not ashamed to say it. I get wet between my legs. I was happy. She said yes. Do you really mean it I asked her? I mean it Rider. I want to be with you. I fell in love with you too.
