Epilogue

Carlos’ PoV

“Dad. Dad. Can we go to aunt Josie’s house? Please. Pleaseee.”

I looked down from my paper work to see my 10 year old son. He looked exactly like me but with the exceptions he had his mother’s mesmerising blue eyes. His dark black hair was messy on his head and he was stood on one of my leather chairs with pleading big eyes. He got that from his mother too and unfortunately so did all my other kids. I can’t say no to them either when they give me those eyes.

“Where’s your mother Axel?”
He climbed on my desk and came to sit on my lap. I combed down his hair a bit and flattened it. He always did prefer to sit in here with me than play with his siblings.

“Mom’s looking after Lilith, Jake and Blaise. I don’t know why she decided to have 3 babies at once.”
I chuckled and ruffled his hair. He pushed my hands away with one of his signature glares. Now that’s something he got from me.

“Your mother couldn’t control how many babies she had Axel.”
He shrugged and crossed his arms.
“Aren’t you happy to have your sister and brothers?”

He nodded his head and looked up at me with sad eyes.
“I am. They’re really fun to play with but they always take away mum’s attention. I want her to play with me sometimes but she’s always with them instead. It isn’t fair.”
He looked away from me and I could hear him sniffle his nose.

My eye’s softened and I turned him to look at me again. I wiped away the tear that had escaped his eyes. Poor kid.
“Axel. Your mother loves you loads. She is having a difficult time with the triplets right now especially since they are all so young and are only 6. You just need to give her time. I’ll talk to her okay?”

He nodded his head and then hugged me.
“Thanks dad. I love you.”

I hugged him back and rubbed his back.
“I love you too son. Now go see what the triplets are doing and help your mother.”

He smiled up at me and jumped down from my knee.
“Okay dad.”
I laughed as he ran out of the room.

It has been 10 years since me and Lavender have been married. The day of our wedding was one of the most nerve-wracking and amazing days of my life.

Flash back

’Carlos don’t worry. It’ll be fine.”
I was stood at the alter. We had decided to go with an outside wedding. It was in her backyard and they had decorated it up. There was white large ribbons above us and black chairs that contain close family and friends. There were some family from my side and some from hers. We didn’t want a necessarily large wedding. We went one that contained our friends and family which I was thankful for.

My groomsmen were Scotty, Max, Braydon and my dad. My best man was my dad. Lavender’s bridesmaids were Josie, Raven, Jessica and Vanesia. We both decided on only having 4 as we didn’t want too many but wanted the closest people to us up there as well. I wore a black three piece suit with a white shirt and black tie. I had shiny black shoes on and my watch.

I took a deep breath.
“I know. It’s my wedding day. I deserve to be just a little bit nervous. Stop having a go at me.”

My dad laughed and rubbed my shoulder.
“You’ll be fine. Don’t worry.”

It had only been a couple weeks since I proposed. We decided to get married before she had the baby. She was about 9 weeks along now and her belly was showing a little. I loved knowing she was holding my baby and would eventually give birth to him or her one day.

The music started and my father took his place again. I stood up straight and adjusted my suit. I looked towards the aisle waiting. It was a cruel waiting process. I just wanted to see her. There was a little drape of white ribbon where she was suppose to come through. I hurt that there was something as measly as a drape of ribbon stopping me from seeing my gorgeous bride.

It opened and my mouth dropped. She came down with her father on her arm. She looked absolutely gorgeous. She had kept her hair natural which I loved. Her dress was magical. It was a flowey one which had little flowers at the top. The sleeves were puffy and she looked absolutely adorable and beautiful at the same time. That dress matched her personality so well. It was cute but had a sexy and beautiful side to it.

She looked up and we caught each other’s eyes. She was such a beauty. My beauty. Her lips were stained with a light pink lipstick and mascara couted her eyelashes. Her cheeks were a little pink but I don’t know if that was because of her blushing or the makeup. She was shy and looked down my body. She bit her lip a little and I smirked.

They got to the end and he handed her off to me. Christopher gave me a serious and harsh look and I knew what exactly it meant. I nodded my head with a smile. He smiled back at me before walking off.

She stepped onto the raised platforms and we held hands. I winked at her and she blushed. Soo cute.

The priest began and I didn’t pay attention to anything he said. I just gazed at Lavender. Memorising all her features into my mind. The little dimple just below her eye. The little scar between her eyebrows. The dip in her top lip. Everything about her made me love her more and more.

“I’ve been told the groom and maid have made their own vows.”
I turned to the priest and nodded my head. I looked back at Lavender and took a deep breath.

“Lavender ever since I first laid eyes on you. I knew you’d be my wife one day. Even if it took me years and years to convince you to do so you would have still been it. Even if you father scared the shit out of me the first time I met him.”
Everyone laughed an Lavender giggled.
“I still would have married you no matter what. Because there’s nobody out there that is as caring and kind as you are. You forgive and care for everyone no matter what they have done to you in the past. That is a feature of you that I absolutely love and absolutely despise at the same time. You care and look after me when ever I’m sick and the love you give me makes me feel like the happiest man in the world. So thank you for that. Thank you so much.”

She had begun crying and so had I. The people clapped and she blushed.
“Lavender. Would you like to say your vows?”

She jumped a little and smiled shyly.
“Oh yeah.”
I laughed and she looked up at me.
“Carlos the way we m-met was a bit weird. You literally bumped into m-me in the school hallway an I couldn’t thank you e-enough for not paying attention to where you were W-walking.”
I shook my head and chuckled.
“Because ,i-if you had, I probably wouldn’t h-have built up the courage to ever talk to you. Y-You were the best thing to ever h-happen to me. You protected and stayed with me even w-when you got injured because of me. You loved a-and cared for me every time I decided I wanted to c-cry or be moody. You were the best b-boyfriend I could ever ask for and I can’t thank you e-enough for that. You a-accepted me for me and didn’t care about my body. I-I love you so much and will never be able to pay you back for h-how much you have done for me these past couple y-years.”

I looked up to contain my tears. Lavender lightly squeezed my hands and I looked down at her. She had tears running down her face and looked beautiful none the less. I wiped away a tear and she blushed a little.

“Now if anyone has anything to say please say it now or forever hold your peace.”
It was silent and then we heard someone clear their throat.

I turned to Braydon and glared.
“I swear to go Braydon if you say anything I will kill you.”
He raised his hands above his head and smirked at me. Some people laughed.

“Eh eh eh. Calm down big boy. Im perfectly fine with you two getting married. I just had something in my throat.”
I rolled my eyes and turned back to Lavender. She had a silly smile on her face that made me smile as well.

The priest took one last look at Braydon and then turned to us again.
“Do you Carlos Damian Reid take Lavender Rose as your lawfully wedded wife, to have and to hold, from this day forward, forbetter or for worse, for richer or for poorer, in sickness and inhealth, to love and cherish until death do youpart?”

I took the ring of Nathaniel who was our ring boy to my dismay. I held it in my hand.
“I do.”
I slipped it on Lavender’s finger just above her engagement ring.

"“Do you Lavender Rose take Carlos Damian Reid as your lawfully wedded husband, to have and to hold, from this day forward, forbetter or for worse, for richer or for poorer, in sickness and inhealth, to love and cherish until death do youpart?”

She nodded her head too. She took my wedding ring and held it in her hand. She had licked it herself. It was a silver one that had large diamonds encrusted all the way around the middle. It looked beautiful and amazing.

“I do.”
She slipped it on my finger and smiled up at me.

The priest closed his book and smiled at us.
“I now pronounce you husband and wife. You may now kiss the bride.”

I pulled her into a passionate kiss. She placed her hands in my hair and kissed me back. The attendees clapped and whooped. I pulled back from her with harsh breaths. Lavender’s lips were swollen and her breaths were deep. I pecked her lips once more before taking her hand in mine and walking down the aisle again.

The rest of the venue was of people congratulating us and Braydon’s mother having a go at him for interrupting the ceremony which was entertaining to see.

We both got changed before getting on the plane to go to Hawaii for our honeymoon. Lavender was absolutely excited. She couldn’t stop jumping up and down and had a constant large smile on her face. I had found out she had always wanted to go to Hawaii from Josie and decided to take her there for our honeymoon. I hoped she would have a great time there and hopefully a few amazing nights as well.

We sat on the flight. It was a 10 hour flight. Lavender was on my lap watching a movie on the tv. I lightly stroked her hair and was just admiring her. She yawned a little and began to shuffle on my lap and I could feel myself getting hard. I gripped her hips and held her still. She looked up at me confused before blushing when she felt my boner.

She smirked and dug her ass further into my boner that made me moan more. I groaned and picked her up. I took her into the plane bedroom and laid her down on the bed. She wrapped her legs around my waist and pulled me closer to her. I kissed her lips and placed my hand in her hair. I moved my hand from her hair to her face. I grabbed her cheeks and pulled her face closer. I moved my hands to her neck and down her chest. I squeezed her breasts and she let go of my lips to let out a moan. I smiled and moved my lips down to her neck. She leaned it to the side so I had better access.

I moved my hands to her joggers pulled down her joggers along with her panties. She breathlessly moaned as I ran my finger through her folds. She arched her back of the bed and looked into my eyes. I slipped my fingers into her heat and moved them in and out. She moaned louder and gripped my hair. I curled my fingers and she dug her feet into my back.

I pulled her shirt off and over her head. I chuckled it on the other side of the room. I sucked on her breasts and she whimpered a little. I bit around them leaving hickeys. Lavender placed her hands on my cheek and pulled my face up. She was biting her lip and I used my thumb to pull it from her teeth.
“Fuck me daddy.”

I smirked and shook my head.
“No darling. I’m going to make love to you.”
Her eyes lit up and she smiled.

I pulled my fingers out of her pussy and sucked them. She turned redder. I pulled my joggers and boxers down before lining my cock up to her entrance. I gently eased myself into her and she gripped my now bare shoulders. She laid her head back on the bed and arched her back a little. I kissed her neck and I went further in.

I slowly pulled back out and then went back in. She moaned louder and they lasted longer. She was gripping my shoulders so hard I thought they would bruise. I went slow and deep as she moaned into the room. I loved the look she would give me during sex. It was desperate and pleasuring. Her eyes rolled back into her head and opened her mouth as moans filtered out.

I gripped her hips and went even deeper. I placed her legs on my shoulders and this angle made it so I hit her g-spot repeatedly. When I did, Lavender pulled at my hair and moaned again. I smirked and kept hitting that spot over and over again. I felt her tighten around me and I groaned in her ear. I could feel myself become harder and she bit my shoulder to contain her moans. I hit her g-spot harder and she came. I came along with her and we moaned together.

I fell on top of her as I finished. She wrapped her arms around me and placed her head in my neck.
“Damn.”
She whispered.

I chuckled.
“Damn.”

Flashback over

It was one of the best days of my life.

I got up from my chair and walked out of my door. We had both finished our education. Lavender achieved her dreams and opened her own hospital last year right here in New York. I was so proud of how well she was doing. I took over my father’s business a few years back when he suffered a heart attack. It was stress related so I took over. My mother kind of forced him into it and he couldn’t say no to her.

10 years ago she gave birth to our first child. We had decided to leave it until birth to find out the gender. To be completely honest, I was shitting myself. I was so scared and excited at the same time.

Flashback

Lavender was laid on the sofa with her feet up. She had her hands laid on her heavily pregnant stomach. She’s been pregnant for 8 months and we were both being were cautious when it came to what she does.

Throughout her whole pregnancy, I was cautious on what I allowed her to do. I knew she probably hated me for it but I had to make sure they were both safe. I don’t know what I would do to myself if anything ever happened to Lavender or my child. I wouldn’t allow her to work out, cook for us, do anything to intense. I had even taken time off my work for the last two months of her pregnancy as I was more nervous of her giving birth than she herself was.

I walked towards the sofa she was laid on with our food. It was spaghetti Bolognese with a glass of apple juice which she is still unnaturally obsessed with. Lavender’s eyes were trained on the tv and she would rub her stomach. I sat beside her and grab a cushion. I placed it on her stomachs and then placed her plate on top. I grabbed her feet and placed them on my lap.

Lavender smiled at me and I leaned down to kiss her cheek. She blushed and looked back at the tv. I smirked. She never changed. She’s no longer as innocent as when we met but she still isn’t as dirty minded as most people. She blushes anytime I kiss or show her any affection and I absolutely love that.

I grabbed her feet and began to massage them. Her whole body relaxed and she continued to eat her spaghetti. She grabbed the apple juice and drank some. We sat there watching tv until she was down. She pulled her legs off my lap and stood up. I straightened my back and stood beside her.

She looked at me with a face that said are-you-serious.
“Carlos. I’m only going to the kitchen. You don’t have to w-worry.”

My face softened. She had a point but I could never be too cautious. I sat back down and she smiled at me. She waddled towards the kitchen and then I heard a smash. I jumped up from the sofa and ran into it. I looked around scared. Has she hurt herself? Is she bleeding? Is our baby okay?

I ran towards Lavender and placed my hands on her shoulders.
“Darling are you okay? Have you hurt yourself?”

She looked up at me with wide eyes and then looked down. I looked down too and my eyebrows furrowed. Why was there water on the floor? Was she trying to make a drink?”

“Carlos. I think m-my water just broke.”
I looked up at her with wide eyes. We just stared at each other. Her water broke? Is she serious? My baby’s coming. My baby’s coming.

I snapped out of it and took her hand. She groaned and placed her hand on her back. I looked at her worried and helped her walk towards the door. I grabbed our pregnancy bag and then our keys.
“Carlos.”

I went back to her and she was leaning against the wall taking deep breaths. I rubbed her back and lightly stroked her hair.
“It’s alright darling. Just breath in and out. Deep breaths now.”

She looked at me and breathed in and out. I took her hand and we walked out of the house we had brought not too long ago. It was easier to get to a hospital when you’re in a house than a 25 story building.

I unlocked the car and helped her into the passenger seat. I put her seat belt on and she gripped it. Her eyes scrunched up and she gritted her teeth. I placed my hands on her cheeks and rubbed my thumbs across them. Her eyes opened and looked into mine.
“It’s okay darling. Don’t worry. The baby will be out soon. Just wait a little while more.”

She nodded her head and I kissed her forehead. I went to the driver’s seat and got in. I put my seat belt on and then turned the car on. I looked at Lavender one last time to see her looking at me with her cheek laid against the seat. I smiled and pulled out of the driveway.

Lavender grabbed her phone and called someone. She put it on speaker and then groaned.
“Hello.”

“Josie. My water-ahhh”
She grabbed her stomach and took deep breaths in. I placed my hand on top of hers and rubbed it. I could see sweat beats formulating on her forehead and the little pieces of hair on her hair line stuck to her face.

“Lavender are you okay? Is there something wrong with the baby?”
She looked at me.

“Josie. He water just broke. We’re on the way to the hospital now. You might want to tell the others and come.”

I turned a corner and could see the hospital lights up ahead. Josie squealed and Lavender groaned. I looked at her and she was harshly biting her lip. I rubbed her hand again and smiled at her.

“She’s having the baby. Oh god Braydon she’s having the baby.”
I turned into the hospital parking lot and tried to find a parking space. I found one and safely parked the car.

Lavender groaned again and shook her head. I wiped away the sweat on her head and rubbed her cheek.
“Shhh Shh darling calm. The baby’s coming.”

She shook her head and her eyes hit wider.
“Don’t tell me to calm down Carlos. Y-Your not the one pushing this baby out of you v-vagina. I am.”

My eyes widened as she glared at me. I quickly got out of the car before she could shout at me again. I opened her side of the car and helped her out. I took my phone and said goodbye to Josie before hanging up. Lavender hunched over and gripped my hand tightly as another contraction hit. I groaned too. Damn this woman has a tight grip.

I shook my head and placed my arm around her waist. I helped her walk towards the door. When a doctor saw us, they brought a wheelchair to us. I helped Lavender sit down in it. She was shelled to our paternity room. They helped her out of the wheel chair and into the bed. I walked up beside her and pushed some hair out of her face. She groaned against me squeezed my hand. I bit my lip at the strength. Come on Carlos. Be strong for Lavender.

Our midwife came into the room and her eyes widened when she saw Lavender. Another person came into the room.
“Okay Carlos. It seems she’s going to deliver much earlier than we expected. Much earlier.”

My eyes widened.
“How much earlier?”

The midwife got at the end of the bed and pulled the sheet over Lavender’s legs. She gasped and pulled a pair of gloves on.
“Like now.”

Lavender looked at me pained and my eyes softened. I got on the bed and sat behind her. She placed her hand in one of mine and laid her head against my chest. The midwife nodded at Lavender.
“You ready.”

Lavender grunted in response.
“Okay lavender push.”

She groaned and squeezed my hand tighter. I bit my lip and used my free hand to stroke he hair.
“And again.”

She groaned and pushed again. The midwife looked up at us with a smile.
“I can see the head. Another big push Lavender.”

She shook her head side to side.
“I-I can’t. It hurts.”

She whimpered and laid her cheek on my shoulder. Tears were falling down her face and my heart hurt at the side. I used my thumb to wipe her tears away and lifted her head up.
“Hey hey. You can. You can push. I know you can. Soon you’ll be able to see your baby. We’ll be able to see our baby.”

I kissed her forehead and she smiled. She nodded at the midwife and squeezed my hand. She screamed a little.
“The shoulders are throw. Not much nor Lavender. You’re doing great.”

She pushed again and I heard the screams off a baby. My heart swelled at the sound of our baby. Lavender pushed once more before falling against me. The midwife turned to one of the other people in the room and signalled them over. They had scissors in there hand. The baby was still wailing and Lavender looked over to it.

They cut the umbilical cord and the midwife looked up at us.
“It’s a boy. Congratulations.”

I could feel tears falling down my face. Lavender cried into my shoulder and I hugged her closer to me. They washed the blood off him and then wrapped him in a blanket. They walked back over to us and Lavender held her arms out. They placed our son down and we looked down at him in awe. His face was red and he looked absolutely beautiful and peaceful.

Lavender gasped and waggled her finger in his face. He removed his hands and she sees. She looked up at me and I continued to stare down at him. He was my son. My baby. Lavender’s just given birth to my baby.

“Do you want t-to hold him C-Charlie?”
I looked down at Lavender with tears rolling down my face. She lifted her self up a little and put him in my arms.

She cuddle closer to me and my face lit up. He moved in his sleep and his eyes slowly opened. He looked around the room and then at me. My eyes widened and I placed my finger in his face. He gripped onto it and I awed. My heart felt so full and was beating faster than before.

“What do you two want to call him?”
Lavender looked up at me and smiled.

“What do you think C-Charlie?”
I looked back down at my baby and smiled.

“Axel.”

Lavender hummed and smiled.
“Axel Carlos Reid i-it is then”

Flashback over

I looked into the backyard to see al of my babies playing together. My eldest Axel was pushing his baby sister on the swing. Lilith was my only girl. She was my little princess. I spoilt her so much it was ridiculous. Jake and Blaise looked identical. Lilith shared most features with them but had freckles like me over her nose. Axel was just like me. Appearance and personality.

I heard someone approach me and turned around. Lavender walked towards me. She smiled up at me and them stood in the doorway. I placed my arm around her shoulder and she leaned her head on my chest.
“There’s so amazing. I can’t imagine my life without you or my baby’s.”

She looked up at me and smiled. I ran the back of my hand across her cheek.
“Neither can I darling.”

She smiled and the leaned on her tippy toes to kiss me. I placed my hand on the back of her head and pulled her closer. She wrapped her arms around my neck and tilted her head.

“Ewww. Mum Dad stop it.”
I smiled into the kiss and Lavender pulled away. She looked at the kids. It was Axel that had interrupted us.

“Don’t be making faces like that dear. You’ll be doing it some day.”
He faked gagging and hunched over his knees gripping his stomach. I chuckled.

“Will I mommy?”
I tuned to my daughter with a harsh glare.

“No.”
Her smirk dropped and she looked at her feet with a frown. Lavender smacked my chest.

“Yes baby you will. Don’t listen to your father.”
I glared at her and she glared back. I instantly turned towards the garden and avoided any eye contact with her. Lavender was a very scary woman when mad. That was a mistake I’ve made many times.

Lilith jumped up and down and the boys glared at her.
“You won’t be kissing any boys Lily.”
I smiled at my son, Blaise.

Lilith stuck her tongue out at him and smiled.
“Yes I will Blaisey. Mummy says so.”

He shook his head.
“No you won’t.”

She nodded her head.
“Yes I will.”

He got up.
“No you won’t.”

She smiled brighter.
“Yes. I will.”

He ran towards her and she ran away. Me and Lavender laughed at their playfulness and continued to stare at our kids.
“I love you Charlie.”

“I love you to Lavender.”
I kissed the top of her head and then placed my cheek on it.

I’m glad I met Lavender. I wouldn’t be where I am today if I hadn’t. A happy, successful, loved father. She’s the best thing to ever happen to me and I’ll never let her go. Never.
