After grabbing a plate of leftovers, Darrius joined Elissa on the couch. “How are you feeling?”
She looked over at him and sighed. “Honestly, tired…like all the time. I’m so ready to get this baby out of me it’s not even funny.”
Darrius laughed and took a bite of food. “Soon babe. The doctor said that you could be due any day now and then we;ll finally meet our little boy or girl.”
Elissa made to stand. “Yeah, I wish it was sooner than later.” She bent to give Darrius a kiss on the cheek and made her way to the bathroom for a quick shower.
“Darrius, it’s time!” she yelled and held her sides as the pain rippled through her.
Darius came running through the door carrying the hospital bag, ready to take Elissa to the hospital so that they could finally meet their new baby.
“Now breathe steady and give me a great big push,” the doctor instructed. Elissa tried to grab Darrius’ hand but he was nowhere to be found. She frowned at that and pushed with all her might. It took a few more tries and finally….
Elissa gave birth to a beautiful and healthy baby boy. She sat up and stared at the tiny human and couldn’t believe that he was finally here. “Hello,” she welcomed him, holding his tiny fingers. “I’m your mommy.”
“Mommy loves you so much and will protect your forever, Johan Goff.
