RUTHLESS SEDUCTION CHAPTERS 49-50- EPILOGUE
Chapter Forty Nine
"Look at my ring." I held my hand out in front of their faces with a large beam on my face. I called my friend out and invited them out for lunch so I could tell them the good news. They needed to know! "Isn't it beautiful?"
"Oh my god!" Amy gasped, staring at it with wide sparkling eyes.
"It's so pretty." Venus said, taking my hand and looking at it up close.
"Axel gave it to me. Galing pang Russia yan, it's the highest quality of diamond." I proudly said.
"That's from Axel?" Tanong ni Trina.
"Yes! He finally asked me to marry him." I excitedly said.
"Shut up!" Hindi makapaniwalang sabi niya.
"Don't tell us you're pregnant?!" Venus exclaimed.
"Buntis ka?" Amy asked.
"No, I'm not pregnant 'no! Nakakaloka!" I said with my best impression of Kris Aquino.
"Then why are you two getting married?" Trina gave me a puzzled look.
"Because I love him and he loves me." I smiled.
"Oh God! I can't believe this. You're getting married to Atticus Xavier Enrique Lavigne?! Baka naman ilusyon mo lang yan." Venus said, skeptical.
I rolled my eyes at her. "Hindi, no! He even asked my dad for my hand in marriage. Huwag kayong mag-alala kahit hindi kayo naniniwala dati na ikakasal kami ni Axel, invited pa din kayo sa wedding namin. Sabi ko naman sa inyo, what Valerie wants, Valerie gets."
"Is this the real life?" Amy still couldn't believe it.
"You guys are so supportive of me talaga." I sarcastically said.
"We just couldn't believe it but we're all happy for you." Sabi ni Trina. She got up from her seat and walked towards me, giving me a hug. "Congratulations, future Mrs. Lavigne."
The two of them joined in too and we shared a group hug. I could feel their support and love for me. I told them how he proposed to me in the hospital and how he begged for my dad's blessing. They listened with focused attention as if they were watching a good chick flick movie.
"I can't believe Axel would ever do that." Venus said.
"I didn't know he was that romantic." Trina sighed, dreamily.
"I've always thought he was just a penis with a body attached to it." Amy giggled.
"Hey, don't talk that way about my fiancee." I frowned.
"I'm sorry. Now that he's going to be your husband. Promise, kalilimutan ko na the hot night we shared together." Amy raised her right hand.
"Yeah, I guess I'll have to forget about his big... ego, too." Trina snickered.
"Oh and his touch and the way he moans and groans." Venus bit her bottom lip.
"Seriously, stop it..." I said, unsmiling. I knew it was all in the past but I couldn't help but get jealous. Hello! They were talking about my future husband. They had seen his naked body before I did, they had tasted him before I did... Mas nauna pa sila sa akin pero di bale, na sa akin naman ang huling halakhak.
"We're just teasing you." Natatawang sabi ni Trina.
"From now on, it never happened." Amy grinned.
"I'm so glad you're not pregnant. I can't imagine what you'd look like with a big belly." Venus winced.
"Not to mention those disgusting stretch marks! May sister had stretch marks when she got pregnant, you'll ruin your flawless skin." Sabi naman ni Trina.
"Yeah, and when you give birth the baby will ruin your vagina. Can you imagine how big a newborn baby is... that thing, it'll come out of you, bursting out like an alien out of your vagina." Amy grimaced.
I rolled my eyes at them and sighed. "It's not that bad. I want to have a baby with Axel after we get married!"
More days passed by. We had already started planning for the wedding. Where the wedding would be, what flowers we would use, the guests, the bridesmaid, the bestman. Everything was all planned out. We were still waiting for the bestman to wake up. I knew Tristan would wake up just in time. He wouldn't miss my wedding.
We were now at a boutique of one of the best fashion designers ever. They took our measurements for the wedding dress and the suit for Axel. The designer asked me what kind of wedding dress I wanted, he had a pencil in his hand and a sketchpad in front of him.
"I want a long, flowy beige dress. I want it to be modest and simple." I said.
"Beige? I think you'd look fabulous in a white wedding dress." Sabi ng designer.
"Hindi na bagay sa akin ang magsuot ng white wedding dress. May bahid na ako. I'm not a virgin anymore." I chuckled. The designer laughed along with me.
"Valerie!" Dad who was sitting in front of said, embarrassment evident on his face. I completely forgot that Dad was there with us.
"Sorry, daddy." I bit my bottom lip.
He threw a scowling look at Axel, who had his arm dangling around my shoulders, and Axel bowed his head in what looked like an apology.
"Okay lang yan, daddy." The gay fashion designer said. "Sa panahon ngayon si Mary na lang ang virgin."
After the sketch was finished, dad left. But before he did, he reminded Axel to keep his hands to himself and no funny business. Even though we were already engaged, that didn't stop dad from being so overprotective of me. He still treated me like a little girl. Sa ospital na nga lang kami madalas magkita ni Axel under his watchful eyes. Minsan na lang kami nakakalabas at kapag kasama ko si Axel and he would always check on us. He would call me or Axel every ten minutes whenever we were together. And I had a curfew. Kailangan naibalik na ako ni Axel sa bahay bago mag ten o'clock.
I saw it as a good thing din naman to stay celibate until our wedding night. It would make it more special.
Sumakay kami sa kotse ni Axel at pumunta sa isang restaurant para maglunch.
"Finally, na solo din kita." He sighed. "You're dad looked like he wanted to skin me alive earlier."
"I'm sorry, baby." I giggled, wrapping my arms around him and giving him a kiss on the jaw. "He's just being protective of me."
"I know. I know." He nodded his head and turned his head to me. "We have the rest of the day. Want to go to my place?" He smiled, raising his brow up and down.
"Axel, I know that look!" I shook my head.
"Come on, it's been months since the last time we made love." He pulled me closer to him, kissing my hair.
"I just think maybe we should save it for our wedding night. I want it to be special." I said, pushing him and scooting away from him.
"It'll still be special because it's with you." Malambing na sabi niya.
"But it will be more special if we wait."
"God, I'm going to fucking explode, Val." He huffed out a breath.
"You're not going to explode." Natatawang sabi ko.
"I feel like I am. You broke the record, Val. This is possibly the longest time I've abstained from sex since I was seventeen."
"Do you love me?" I asked in a serious tone.
"Of course, I do. You know I love you." He quietly said.
"Then you'd wait."
He rolled his eyes, smiling. "I'll wait."
"Thank you, baby. It'll be worth it, I promise."
"Everything is worth it with you." He affectionately said. "I love you, Valerie Zamora."
"I love you too, Atticus Xavier Enrique Lavigne." I smiled.
He cupped my face and gave me a quick kiss on the lips. We started talking about our wedding. I told him how excited I was. Sabi ko sa kanya gusto ko sa hacienda maganap ang kasal namin, we agreed on that. He said he wanted our baby Mitsy to be there too. Napag-usapan na din namin kung saan kami maghohoneymoon. Sa lake house ng mga magulang niya. I could already picture everything in my head. I knew it would be perfect. Kahit ano pa ang kalabasan ng kasal namin basta sa kanya ako ikakasal, everything would be perfect.
We were about to leave the restaurant when we received a call from dad telling us to go to the hospital. We hurriedly drove to the hospital. We were both worried about Tristan. I quietly prayed while we were in the car. Sana walang nangyari sa kanya. Kawawa naman si Andi at ang magiging baby nila.
Jaime was standing outside Tristan's room when we got there. Halos kasabay lang namin dumating si Wayne, Seth at Nick. I didn't know what was going on. Nobody had a clue. My heart was beating so fast and hard. I hoped and prayed nothing bad had happened to Tristan.
Three doctors walked out of the room and behind them was Andi with a huge smile on her face. I let out a sigh of relief when I saw her smile. Nothing bad had happened to him, thank God. We all excited went inside and saw the motherfucker with his eyes finally opened.
Our friends walked up on him and welcomed him back. Valerie ran to him and gave him a hug to which Tristan responded with a wince. Agad na lumayo si Val sa kanya.
"I'm sorry." She said, apologetic. "I just missed you so much."
I had my hands in my pocket as I slowly walked towards his bed. Pagkatapos ng pag-aaway namin bago siya ma-comatose, hindi ko alam kung ano ang dapat kong sabihin. I didn't want to say or how to act. Should I apologize? Should I tell him that Valerie and I were already engaged? I wasn't really prepared for this.
"Hey." I said. He turned his head to me and gave me a faint smile and I knew everything would be alright between us again. "You fucking scared us again."
"Dude, you've used up two lives. I know you still have seven lived left but you gotta be careful next time." Sabi ni Seth. All of us broke into laughter.
We quietly watched as Jaime walked up to his son with teary eyes, giving him a pat on the cheek before hugging him tight.
We threw a mini party for him in his room. Wayne and Seth went out and bought a cake and we had food delivered. Pagkatapos ng ilang oras, nagpaalam na sina Wayne, Seth at Nick.
We had a lot to talk about. I had a lot to explain to him. Gusto ko ako ang magpaliwanag at magsabi sa kanya ng lahat. Andi, Valerie and Jaime knew we needed to talk in private and they excused themselves out of the room.
"What do we need to talk about?" Tristan asked in his hoarse voice. He still had a hard time talking because he hadn't used his vocal chords for months.
"Mahal ko si Valerie." I started. "God knows how much I love her. Hinding-hindi ko siya sasaktan. You have my word, Tristan. Now that I have her I'm not going to give her up for anything."
"What exactly are you trying to say?" He asked.
"Valerie and I are already engaged. We're planning to get married."
For awhile, he looked at me without any expression on his face. Then he gave me a weak punch on the arm. "Bastard! Uunahan mo pa kami ni Andi."
A low chuckle rose from my throat. "Ibig sabihin ba niyan tanggap mo na akong maging brother-in-law."
"I don't have any choice, do I?" One corner of his lips lifted up in a smirk.
"No... no, you don't." I laughed.
This was the day. I looked at myself in the full length mirror in front of me. A week after Tristan got out of the hospital, itinuloy na namin ang kasal. Siya na lang naman ang hinihintay namin. I was wearing a long, flowy beige dress made of silk. I almost cried when I saw myself in front of the mirror. I couldn't believe it. I felt like this was all too good to be true. Para akong nakalutang sa ulap. In just a few hours, I'd be Mrs. Atticus Xavier Enrique Lavigne.
"Here comes the bride, all dress in beige." Amy sang as she put on the veil over my head.
"Am I dreaming?" I asked, teary eyed.
"No, you're not." Sabi naman ni Venus. "You're so beautiful."
"Don't cry, you'll ruin your mascara." Trina reminded, wiping the tears in the corner of my eyes.
"I'm just so happy." I said in a broken voice.
"I know! We're all happy for you too." Trina smiled.
"Now smile like the princess you are." Said Amy.
"Suotin mo yung lingerie na ibinigay ko sa'yo mamayang gabi. Make him go crazy for you." Sabi ni Trina. The four of us giggled.
"Okay girls! Let's take a selfie with the bride." Venus held out her phone in front of us and started taking pictures.
As we were taking photos, Dad peeked into my room. I smiled when I saw him and I ran towards him, giving him a big hug. He hugged me back lovingly and stroked my hair.
"You look exactly like my Rebecca." He said as he pulled from the hug and looked at me. Rebecca was my mother. She got sick and died when I was just little but I still had faint memories of her. I remembered playing dolls with her, I remembered falling asleep to her sweet lullabies, I remembered her putting a tiara over my head and calling me her princess. My eyes watered at the memory of her. I wished she was looking down from heaven right now. Sana kahit wala siya dito, nakikita niya ang mga nangyayari. I wished she could see me walk down the aisle and marry the man I love.
I forced a smile as tears blurred my vision. "I love you, daddy."
"I love you too, sweetheart." He said.
We were called out by the organizer. Everything was ready. The wedding was held in the vast garden of our hacienda. We wanted our wedding to be solemn and intimate, we only invited the people who were really close to us.
I saw Mitsy standing in front of the door when I got out and next to him was a man dressed in a coachman's uniform. I chuckled to myself, I knew this was Axel's idea. The man held out his hand and he guided me up to sit on Mitsy's back. I carefully sat on Mitsy with my feet dangling to one side. The coachman pulled Mitsy's bridle and guided her to the garden. I was enjoying the warmth of the sun and the cool breeze of air on my skin. The sound of the rythmical hitting of the shoehorse calmed me as my heart started beating faster and faster as we get near the garden.
All the guests turned their heads to me and their eyes sparkled in amusement when they saw me. At the end of the red carpet stood my groom, with his hands in front of him as he patiently waited for me.
The violin man started playing Canon in D. The coachman helped me down Mitsy. Dad stood next to me and I wrapped my arms around his. We slowly started walking down the aisle until we got to the end of it, where Axel was standing. We stopped in front of him. Dad gave me one last hug as his little girl before I become Axel's wife.
"She's your problem now." Dad said as he handed me to Axel.
"Dad naman." I smiled through my tears.
"I'm just joking. I love you, princess." He said as his eyes began to water.
"I love you too, daddy." I said before I faced my groom.
"You're beautiful." He whispered, giving me a kiss on the forehead.
"You're not bad yourself." I giggled.
We walked to the altar and the ceremony began. We stood hand in hand as the priests spoke. I could feel Axel occassionally squeezing my hand and I would turn my head to him and smile. Once we started saying our vows, it was as if everyone and everything around us disappeared and it was only just the two of us. It was so magical.
He took a deep breath and looked into my eyes. "Valerie Zamora, I love you. I've loved you since the first time I laid my eyes on you. Someone like you comes along once in a lifetime and I never thought you'd come. Before you I never believed in soulmates, I always believed if it were true I would've found mine before. You know I've made a bad choice before you came into my life and I didn't know that it was you I was waiting for. I promise to try to be a better man, one worthy of your love, one you will always be proud to call yours. I know you love me unconditionally but you make me want to be better and more loving than I have with anyone else before. I promise to cry every tear that should be yours, shoulder any burden, ride out any storm because I never want you to feel any pain again that might steal the twinkle from your beautiful eyes or the sweet smile on your face. I promise that this will be forever. We'll be together until our last breath. We'll plan our future of lazy days and passionate nights. Holidays in the sun and Christmas times full of contentment and family. I want to be the person who makes your days complete as you do to mine. I would spend my last breath telling you how beautiful you are and how much I love you. I'd remind you of all the things that made me fall so completely in love with you so when you could no longer hear it from me you'd never forget." ivory flower girl dresses
I was sobbing by the time he finished his vow.He slipped the ring on my finger and he wiped the tears off my cheeks.
I collected myself before I started mine. "Naalala ko ang sinabi sa akin ni dad noon. Hindi mo pwedeng piliin kung kanino ka mahuhulog at kung kailan o kung paano. I felt so stupid when I realized that I was already falling in love with you. I thought I fell in love with the wrong man, in the wrong place at the wrong moment. Even though I was scared and confused, I trusted my heart. It kept pulling me to you because my heart knew I was meant for you. Now I see the bigger picture, that you're part of the bigger plan God has for me. I didn't know that you were meant to be my husband, the father of my future children, the man I'm going to spend the rest of my life with. My heart is yours forever, my dreams revolve around you and the key to my happiness is in your hand so please be gentle with it. Consider my heart to be your shelter and my arms to be your home. I love you, Atticus Xavier Enrique Lavigne."
I took the ring and slipped it on his finger
"I now pronounce you man and wife. You may now kiss the bride." The priest said.
He wrapped his arms around my waist and pulled me into him. Axel gave a long, hard kiss and the guests stood from their seats and started clapping. He is now my husband and I could not ask for more.
I was going to stepped into the house when Axel stopped me. I shrieked as he lifted me up and carried me. I wrapped my arms around his neck and we started kissing while he made his way up the stairs. He stopped in front of the door to the master's bedroom. I pulled my lips away from him and turned the doorknob. He walked in and laid me down the bed.
Dumagan siya sa akin. He smiled playfully. "Four whole months of torture, Valerie. You'll pay for it. Tonight I'm going to murder your pussy."
I chuckled. "Oh you..." Hinawi ko ang ilang hibla ng buhok na nasa mukha niya. And then I remembered something. "I've stopped taking the pills."
"You don't those pills. We're already married. Don't you want a baby?" He asked.
"Of course I do." I smiled.
"Good. Then we better start making one. Gustong gusto na ni Charlotte at Augusto magkaroon ng apo."
He crashed his lips into mine and I kissed him back with equal intensity. Our tongues swirled together. Our bodies were hungry for each other. Our hands were eagerly undressing each other and groping each other's bodies. He pulled down my dress to my stomach and his hand slid to my breast. His palm encircled it and his finger found my nipple. I moaned into his mouth when he pinched my nipple between his two fingers, twirling it and playing with it. It felt like a long time since I had felt this kind of intense pleasure.
Surge of desire traveled throughout my body. I knew all those waiting was worth it. Somehow, it felt so special and different because we were doing this as a married couple. Even though we had done everything two people could possibly do together, this just seemed more special. My heartbeat was escalating and my nerves were soaring. I broke my mouth away from his and tried to catch my breath.
His lips trailed down my jaw, giving me small kisses down my neck and to my collarbone. He squeezed my breast as hard as he could and lowered his mouth down to my breast. He sucked it and bit it, making it hard. He did the same thing to my other breats before lifting my dress up and pulling my panties down.
He knelt, his face lowering between my legs. I shivered when I felt him touch my flesh. It felt like such a long, long time... and my body was excited and so ready for him. He slid his finger up and down my cleft.
"You're beautiful, Val." He whispered and pushed two fingers in. I could feel him stretching me to the point of discomfort but not to the point of pain. "You are so unbelievably tight." He slowly started moving it in and out of me. He stroked me, touching every inch, circling his finger. I moaned and squirmed in aching pleasure.
I let out a whine when he pulled his fingers. I could feel the emptiness inside me. He sucked on his fingers and smile. "Just as delicious."
I bit my bottom lip.
"I can't take it anymore. I need to be inside you." He said in a rough voice. He opened my legs wider, positioning himself between them.
"Can you feel how hard I am for you?" He asked, staring intensely at me as he pressed his hardness on my pussy.
"I want to feel all of it." I breathlessly said.
He took my face between his hands and kissed me with all the pent up emotion in his vein as he slowly slid inside me. I began panting against his mouth in seconds. He lifted my bottom up with his hands and he pushed all his length inside me with one sudden thrust. He gave me a second to adjust before he moved. I could feel my inside squeezing his length as he thrusted in and out.
He dipped his head down my breast and sucked on it. Iniliyad ko ang katawan ko sa kanya. Giving it all to him. I just couldn't get enough of him. I pushed down until we were shifted and now I was on top of him, straddling him. I pinned his hands over his head and gave him a sinful smile.
He smiled back at me with a devious glimmer in his eyes. "Fuck baby, I love your wild side."
I started moving up and down on top of him and everytime he meets my thrust with a greedy hunger for more. He held me by my waist and started moving my me faster and harder up and down his shaft. He repeated the movement until we both came together. I collapsed next to him and he pulled me to his side.
We were quiet for a moment as we tried to catch our breaths. Half of the ceiling we were under was made of glass. The light of the moon shone through the glass ceiling. I felt calm and content and so was the world around me.
I felt his hand snaked over my stomach. "My baby's going to be in there someday." He whispered.
I looked up at him and smiled. Yes, and I hope that someday won't be too long.
Chapter Fifty - Final Chapter
I was already eight months heavy with child. Two months after our wedding, we found out I was already pregnant. The reaction on Axel's face the moment I told him the good news was priceless. He cried. Atticus Xavier Enrique Lavigne actually cried when he found out I was carrying his child.
Right away, he sold his condo unit. He said condominiums weren't a good place to raise a child, it would be unsafe and inconvenient for a family. He bought a huge four bedroom house in one of the most secured and exclusive villages. I was happy with our new home. It had a huge garden, kaya habang nagbubuntis ako I did a little gardening. The flowers I planted were blooming beautifully in it.
He was nothing short of a caring husband to me. He showered me with all the love and attention I needed. Especially when I was going through a very hormonal phase during my pregnancy. Wala akong hiniling na hindi niya ibinigay. When I wanted mint chocolate chip ice cream at two in the morning, he'd get out of bed and look for one.
This pregnancy had been really hard. I always get emotional but Axel was there to comfort me. I was always moody but he was very patient with me. Whenever I get insecure, he assures me that I was the most beautiful woman for him, he'll tell me the most rational explanations why I should not be insecure and tell me all the good personalities and physical attributes I had.
Pregnancy wasn't as enjoyable as I thought it would be but I was glad Axel was with me all through it.
"Careful." Axel held my hand as I slid into the pool. He pulled me to him and held me by the waist with my back against his chest. He wrapped his hands protectively around my huge stomach. I felt the baby give a hard kick. It probably felt the change of temperature because of the water. This little thing inside me gets more and more active each day. It just wouldn't stop moving. Minsan magigising ako madaling araw dahil sa tadyak niya.
Axel let out a chuckle when he felt it on his hand. "There's my baby again."
"This thing in my stomach is becoming more restless everyday. It's kicking me every five minutes." I complained.
"It's probably getting crowded in their and our baby wants to get out." He said as he rubbed my tummy.
"I can't wait to give birth to this child. I'm desperate to get rid of this belly. Look at me! I'm like a fat bear." I pouted.
"You're a beautiful fat bear." He whispered to my ear.
"Oh so you agree?" I rolled my eyes at him.
"No, that's not what I meant." Axel quickly answered.
"Ewan ko sa'yo!" Kumawala ako sa mga bisig niya. He tried to pull me back but I pushed him away.
"Come on, Val. What I mean is that you're beautiful even with your huge pregnant belly. I don't mind it, not at all." He explained.
But me, being the moody and dramatic pregnant woman I was, got out of the pool and walked away. He sighed and followed me inside the house.
"You are such a moody pregnant brat." He said when he caught me by my waist.
"Ikaw kaya sa posisyon ko. Can you imagine carrying a five pound baby inside you twenty-four seven and your hormones and body are all going crazy? And then you have your husband telling you that you look like a fat bear." I pouted.
"I did not say you look like a fat bear." Dahan-dahan niya akong hinatak paupo sa couch. He pulled me down to sit on his lap.
"Yes you did!"
"You said you look like a fat bear and I told you that you're a beautiful fat bear. I was trying to compliment you." He sighed.
"I'm not flattered." Sumimangot ako.
"I guess what I really want to say is that you're beautiful. You'll always be beautiful to me, baby. Always remember that." He looked at me intently and with full of sincerity in his eyes.
A smile slowly spread across my lips and I wrapped my arms around his neck. "Really?"
"Really." He smiled back at me and kissed me on the lips. "I love you."
"I love you too." I responded, rubbing my nose against his.
I felt lucky for having him an understanding, patient and loving husband. How could I be more blessed than I was now? I had everything I had ever hoped and dreamt about... everything and so much more.
Valerie was in the bathroom and I was watching tv in our bedroom. The door to the bathroom was open. I tell her to always leave it open when she uses it. Para alam ko kung ano ang nangyayari sa kanya kahit nasa loob siya ng banyo. She might trip or fall down and I wouldn't know.
The last time I checked on her, she was soaking in the tub while reading a book. She had been complaining about the pain in her back since this afternoon. Kanina ko pa siya inaaya magpunta sa doktor pero ayaw niya. She said it wasn't really that painful, I told her that if doesn't get better by tomorrow we'd see her doctor. She had been complaining about it since the second trimester of her pregnancy, the doctor would always tell us that it was normal and we had nothing to worry about. The backpain was just from the weight of the baby in her stomach.
"Axel..." I heard her call me.
I jumped out of bed and ran into the bathroom. "What? Is something wrong?"
"I think the baby wants to get out... NOW!"
"What?!" Panic quickly rose into me. I carefully guided her out the tub and wrapped a robe around her body. "Are you okay? How are you feeling?"
"It... it hurts." She groaned. "My stomach hurts. Oh my god!"
As we were heading towards the bathroom door, a rush of water began to flow down between her legs. Fuck! Her water broke! I swallowed, forcing myself to remain calm.
"Axel..." She winced, gripping my arm tightly. "I can't... walk... masakit talaga..."
"It's going to be alright, I promise." I gently said before lifting her up and carrying her to our bedroom. I laid her down the bed and sat on the edge of it, next to her.
"Axel!" She screamed. "Get this thing out of me! It's breaking me from the inside!"
"Calm down, okay?" I said even though I was starting panic too. It was as if my mind had completely gone blank. I thought I would be prepared when the time comes but I guess I wasn't. "Take a deep breath. Remember how we did it in Lamaze class?" Good thing I was always with her when she was taking Lamaze class. I never missed a single day of it. Kahit paano may alam ako.
She started taking deep, long breaths, she held in the air for a few seconds before breathing it out just like how she was taught. I grabbed my phone and dialed the hospital's number to call an ambulance. I told them to get here as soon as possible.
"Axeeel!" She screamed again and I almost dropped my phone.
"What? What's wrong? Baby, you have to calm down. It's going to be alright, you'll be alright and the baby's going to fine." I gently said. I was telling it to her but it seemed like I was telling it to myself more.
"Oh my god! I could feel the baby..." She said through labored breath. She was already sweating and panting.
I pulled her robe open and pulled her legs apart. I felt like energy had been drained out of me when I saw the crown of the baby's head. I had absolutely no clue on what to do. I didn't know how to get it out.
"Please, please... get it out. Masakit na talaga." She begged, tears flowing down her voice.
"Oh, baby." I cupped her face and kissed her tears away. I felt helpless. I couldn't just sit here and wait for the ambulance to get here. Hindi ko na din naman siya madadala sa ospital dahil hindi niya na daw kaya. The hospital was at least thirty minutes away from us. The baby wanted to get out and I needed to do something. Baka kung mapaano ang anak ko at si Valerie kung wala akong gagawin.
I tried to remember everything they taught us in Lamaze class. The breathing technique, the movement and the position. I decided to take matters into my own hands. I called her OB-GYN, I told her that the baby was ready to come out and I needed her to assist me over the phone. I put the phone on loudspeaker.
"I can already see the top of the baby's head." I told the doctor.
"What? That's dangerous. The baby could suffocate if it stays in the birth canal for too long. You need to make your wife push the baby out. We'll come right there as soon as we can." She said. My heart pounded like mad and my blood rushed through myveins. I didn't want anything to happen to my child or to my wife. Fear took over me but I had to remain calm. Kailangan kong lakasan ang loob ko. I would do everything in my power to get her and the baby through this.
I held Valerie's hand and looked her into her eyes. "Did you hear that? The doctor said you have to push the baby out."
She let out a loud groan. Her hand squeezed mine as she tried to push. Her face turned red and tears flowed down her cheeks.. God, I wished I could something more than holding her hand. I felt faint, it was if I could feel her pain too.
"Take a deep breath, baby." I calmly said. She relaxed, laying her head down the bed. She took in five deep breaths before giving another push.
She groaned and grunted loudly. After awhile, she stopped pushing again to catch her breath. "It's hurting really bad. I feel like it's tearing me apart." She cried.
"I'm sorry, baby." I said, kissing her hand. "Konting tiis na lang. You've got to keep pushing."
She pushed again and I looked in between legs. Blood oozed out around the tight circle of her skin as it opened up. The head of the baby slowly came out.
"Konti na lang. Take a deep breath and push out." I told Valerie. My eyes started to water. She pushed again and I supported the baby's head with my hand. The head was already out and tears fell from my eyes when I saw my child's face. The circle of blooded skin settled around the baby's neck.
"Val, our baby's almost out. You have to push harder." I said.
She gave one last, hard push and I pulled the rest of the baby's body out. I carefully carried my child into my arms. Kinuha ko ang kumot mula sa kama at pinunasan ang dugo sa mukha nito. Valerie's body limped tiredly against the bed. The baby cried and I started to cry too. She felt so fragile and soft. There was not a single word in any language I know that could describe how I was feeling as I held my baby in my arms. I didn't have the right words to tell how perfect it was I was in complete bliss, a state of perfect tranquility and happiness.
"It's a girl." I smiled with tears in my eyes. I instantly fell in love with her. She was pink and tiny and beautiful. "Hi, baby. I'm your daddy." Mahinang sabi ko habang pumapatak ang luha sa mga mata ko.
I looked at Valerie. She was still awake, looking at me with hooded eyes. Inilapit ko sa kanya ang anak namin. I laid our crying daughter on her chest. She looked at her with tears in her eyes before looking up at me. I tucked the loose strands of her hair behind her ear and gave her a kiss on the forehead.
"Thank you, Val. Thank you for giving me a beautiful daughter. I love you and our baby." I whispered against her skin.
My daughter's mouth found its way to her nipple and latched on it hungrily. We both fell silent as we watched our baby in awe. Our beautiful baby was worth the pain.
"Anais Rebecca." Valerie said, out of the blue. "I want to name her Anais Rebecca." She got the Rebecca from her mother. She always tells me that if our baby turns out to be a girl, she would name it after her late mother.
"It's beautiful, the name fits her perfectly." I smiled.
Anais grew up to be as beautiful as Valerie. She had my dark eyes, her mother's straight and slightly upturned nose, and pouty lips. She was as bratty as her mother but also as lovable as her too. Smart and clever but cunning. She had a natural charm and a personality that you just have to love.
Valerie was a great mother to our daughter. Nothing had changed since the day we got married. If anything I love her even more than I did before, if that was even possible. And after all those year, the passion between us never faded or subsided.
Oh God, how I love this woman. I thought to myself as I breathed into her hair. I couldn't imagine a life without her and our daughter.
I began giving her small kisses on the hair and my lips trailed down to the side of her head, her cheeks and her jaw. She moaned, half-asleep. I pulled her closer to me and grinded my morning wood on my sleeping wife's ass.
"Axel..." She moaned.
My lips went down to her neck and my hands went up to her breasts. I felt her roundness and stroked her nipples with my thumb through her satin nighties.
"Mmm..." She whimpered.
"You like that?" I asked huskily.
"Yeah..." She breathed out.
"What do you want?" My lips lifted in devious smile.
"Your cock." She answered.
"Where do you want it?"
"Then what?" I pinched both her nipples with my fingers.
"Then I want you to fuck me." She groaned.
"How do you want me to fuck you?"
"You're teasing me." She muttered.
A small chuckle escaped my throat. One of my hands went down to her stomach and down to her...
"Mommy! Daddy!" Anais ran into our room and jumped over the bed. Our little ball of energy bounced up and down the bed like she was jumping on a trampoline.
Valerie and I quickly sat up. I took the pillow beside me and covered my hardness with it. I groaned quietly. Great! I just got cock blocked by my own daughter before I could make a move on her mother.
"Hi, good morning, sweetheart." Valerie grabbed her silk robe and slipped it on.
"Good morning. What are you doing here, sweety?" I asked.
"Sabi mo kahapon we'll go fishing today." She stopped jumping and sat in between me and Valerie.
"Yeah, I did."
"Then you need to get up. I've been waiting for you to wake up for like a hundred hours!"
I looked at the clock on the side table and the clock says it was already nine twenty in the morning. I took a one week leave from the office so I could spend time with the two beautiful girls in my life. The family tradition went on, every summer we go to our lake house just like how me and my parents did when I was little. This time it was with my wife and my daughter.
"I'm sorry, sweety, we overslept." Sabi ni Valerie.
"Why don't you wait for us outside? We'll just take a shower so we could go fishing." I said.
"Make it quick, okay?" She bossily said. "Kanina ko pa kayo hinihintay."
I laughed. "I'm sorry, ma'am. It will be really, really quick. I promise. Now, give daddy a morning kiss."
She leaned over to me and gave me a peck on the cheek.
"What about me?" Valerie pouted. She gave her mother a kiss too before jumping out of the bed and running out of the room. We both looked at each other and shook our heads with smiles on our faces. We headed to the bathroom and there we continued what we had started.
The sun was up and bright. Anais was sitting on my shoulders with her head resting on top of mine and Valerie was walking beside me in her two piece bikini. She maintained a gorgeous body even after giving birth to this mini her sitting on my shoulders. We were walking on the dock, heading towards the motorboat that was parked at the end of it.
"Daddy?" Anais said.
"Will we catch a lot of fishies?" She asked.
"We'll try." I answered.
"Big ones?" She excitedly asked.
"If we're lucky."
"Mommy can catch big fishies, right mommy?"
"Yeah, I'm a better fisher than your dad." She smiled confidently.
"You just got lucky." I arched a brow at her.
"Two years in a row, Axel. Admit it, I'm better at fishing than you." Her lips lifted in a smirk. Every year when we go out fishing, we'd have a competition over who caught the biggest fish. For the past two years, she'd been winning.
"Yeah, and mommy's a better horse rider too." Sabi ni Anais.
"Well, I can't argue with that sweetheart. That's her field." I smiled. "She is good... and not just with horses."
"Axel!" Valerie laughed, playfully hitting me on the arm.
We got on the motorboat and Valerie slipped a life jacket on Anais. I drove the motorboat while they sat at the back, chatting and enjoying the sun and the view. My baby sure was growing up too fast. It was as if it was only yesterday when I first held her in my arms. I could still remember how soft she felt, how warm she was, how loud she cried. Now my baby girl was almost four years old. Before I know it she'd be a beautiful young lady with a lot of young boys drooling at her feet. They'd have to go through me first and I would never let anyone of them touch even the tip of her finger. I always tell Anais that she wasn't allowed to love any other guys but me. No crushes or likes on any guys whatsoever. Mabuting maaga pa lang, alam niya na.
I stopped the boat in the middle of the lake and took out the fishing rods. I gave one to Valerie and we sat on the edge of the boat and started fishing.
"Mommy, daddy, bakit kayo nagplay without me last night?" Anais asked, as she sat on my lap.
"Played what?" Valerie asked.
"Yaya said you were playing last night! I heard you two in your room! I even hear mommy shouting 'harder Axel'." Anais frowned.
Nagkatinginan kami ni Valerie, her eyes wide open in pure shock and embarrassment. I had to bite my tongue to keep myself from laughing.
"Mommy is loud, isn't she?" Natatawang sabi ko.
"Yeah..." Anais nodded her head.
"Oh my god, Axel. Stop it!" Pinandilat niya ako ng mata.
I burst into laughter and Valerie's face crumpled in annoyance.
"What's funny?" Takang tanong ni Anais.
"Nothing, sweety." I answered, still chuckling.
"Don't listen to your daddy." She said to Anais.
The only thing better than having her as my wife was our daughter having her as her mommy.
I wrapped my arm on the small of Valerie's back and pulled her closer to me. I kissed her on the lips. The feel of her skin and to the taste of her lips on mine, everything about her reminds me why I was so in love with her. She was my one true love, my heart's desire and my most beautiful woman I had ever been given the priviledge to love and spend the rest of my life with.
Sigurado akong pamilyar na pamilyar na kayo sa scene na ito. Haha. Mula kay Cassie at Phoenix, kay Tristan at Andi, at ngayon naman kay Axel at Valerie. Isa na naman istory ang natapos ko. Salamat po sa patuloy niyong pagsubaybay sa mga kwento ko kahit minsan mabagal ang update.
Three down, two more to go. Dalawa na lang ang binata ko, si Wayne at Seth. Sana patuloy pa rin ang pagsubaybay niyo sa story nila. I really enjoy writing for you guys and to hear you are enjoying reading them as much as I did writing them is an amazing feeling. Thank you so much.
I just finished setting the food on the picnic table. I stood there, admiring the beautiful scenery and the gorgeous day. Sunshine streamed down through trees and hit the lake causing diamond like sparkles to scatter across the surface.
I saw Tristan getting out of the water and lifting his son, my nephew, Yvo, in one arm and wrapping his other arm around Andi's shoulder. Andi was already pregnant with their second child and her pregnant belly was starting to get big. I watched as Tristan put him down and he ran to play with the kids.
We were having a picnic with Axel's friends and their wives. Naging malapit na din ako sa mga kaibigan ni Axel at sa mga asawa nila. I became friends with them. Sa kanila ako nagtatanong kung may kailangan akong malaman sa pagiging mother. Cassie was the most experienced when it comes to being a mother. She and Phoenix had already had four kids, ang isa nga sa anak nila binata na. Si Miggy, a handsome young man with golden hair and brown eyes. Even at such a young age, he already had girls chasing after him.
A pair of arms wrapped around me from behind and held me tight. I didn't have to look at him to know that it was Axel. I knew him just by touch.
I wrinkled my nose. "Amoy barbecue ka." I told him.
"The food's ready. Where's Anais?" He asked.
"She's playing tag with the kids." I answered and sighed. "Your daughter is such a headache. I told her to put on her slippers pero ayaw makinig sa akin. She threw it and ran barefoot."
"Ah, ngayon anak ko lang siya?" He chuckled. "She was your daughter when she had perfect scores on her exams."
"Kasi sa'yo nagmana yan ng katigasan ng ulo." I rolled my eyes. I turned to face him and wrapped my arms around his neck. "She's becoming more and more like you everyday."
"Me? You're dad told me Anais was exactly like you when you were little." I smirked.
"Daddy! Daddy!" Pareho kaming napalingon ng marinig ang boses ni Anais. She was running towards us, crying. Bumitaw mula sa akin si Axel and he lifted his crying daughter up.
"What's wrong, sweetheart?" He asked.
"Coco pushed me!" Humihikbing at nakalabing sabi niya. I rubbed her back to calm her down. Coco was one of Phoenix and Cassie's twins.
Then I saw Coco and Yvo came running towards us. They stopped in front of us.
"Coco didn't mean to hurt her. It was an accident." Yvo explained, looking up to us. The little boy was the peacemaker among them. "Nagulat lang si Coco when she touched his hair."
Anais had a deep obsession with the twin's blonde hair, especially Coco's. She was fascinated by it. She loved touching it, Audrey doesn't really mind but Coco hated being touched.
"Coco, what did you do?" Lumapit sa amin si Cassie.
"He pushed me!" Sumbong ni Anais kay Cassie.
"It's alright. It was just an accident." Sabi ko. Naniniwala naman ako sa sinabi ni Yvo. May pagka-pasaway ang batang iyon but he would never intentionally hurt any of his friends. He's a good kid, a little rebelious and strong-willed but a good kid.
Cassie put her hands on his hips and narrowed her eyes on Coco. "I told you to place nice, didn't I? What do you have to say to Anais?"
Coco said 'I'm sorry' in sign language. Cassie also apologized to us.
"Don't worry about it. You boys go ahead and play." Sabi ni Axel. Tumakbo palayo ang dalawa at bumalik si Cassie kay Phoenix na hawak hawak ang newborn baby girl nila.
Dinala ni Axel si Anais sa mesa at inupo sa ibabaw nito.
"Saan ang masakit?" Axel gently asked, sitting right in front of Anais. Umupo ako sa tabi ng mag-ama.
"Here." She brought her hands to her knees. "And here." And touched her elbow. "They hurt so bad." She said with her paawa face. It wasn't really that bad, she didn't even have a scratch. She was just at that age where any little thing was a big deal to her. She tends to overdramatize everything. I guessed Axel and dad were both right, sa akin nga nagmana ang anak ko.
Pinagpag ni Axel ang konting dumi sa hita niya.
"Do I have a boo boo, daddy?" She asked.
"No, you don't. You're doing good." Axel answered.
"See wala naman pala. Stop crying na, sweety." I smiled at her, pushing back some of the hair that was covering her face and kissing her on her forehead.
"Can you put band-aid on me?" She asked.
"Why? You don't have any boo-boos." Sabi ni Axel.
"But I want a band-aid, the pink one." She said.
"Okay, we'll get you a band-aid after we eat." Sabi ko na lang.
"When will I have a baby brother?" She asked. "Yvo's going to have one, he told me it's in aunt Andi's belly that's why it's so huge and they're going to name him Thor."
"Well..." I bit my lower lip. "It's not easy to make a baby, Anais." Axel and I had thought about having another baby but we decided to wait until Anais grows up so we could focus more on her. Plus I was still traumatized by my last birth experience.
"How do you make a baby?" She asked.
"You'll know when you're old enough." I answered.
"How old?" Her brows crinkled.
"Forty." Sagot ni Axel.
"But I'm already four." She said in a high-pitched tone.
"That's right. You still have thirty-six more years to go." Axel squeezed her tiny nose.
I chuckled, shaking my head. Axel's so overprotective with our little girl. Ngayon pa lang nakikita ko na kung ano ang mangyayari kapag nagdalaga na ang anak namin. He would chase away all his suitors or any guy who'd come close to her. He tells our daughter that she could only love one man, him. He kept reminding it to her, almost to the point of brainwashing.
He'd gone from a wild playboy to a domesticated father. He was scared that someone would do to our daughter what he had done to other women in the past.
"Meron ka naman sister. Si Mitsy." I smiled.
"Mitsy's a horsey." She laughed.
"Yeah, but she's our first baby." Axel chuckled.
Natawa din ako sa sinabi ni Axel. He pulled me to him, I wrapped my arms around his waist and snuggled to his side. I couldn't be any happier than I am now with my husband and my daughter by my side.
"I love you." Axel whispered.
"I know." I sighed.
"You know?" Sumimangot siya.
"Yeah." I absently said.
"Yeah?" He said sounding amused. "You love me too and you know it!"
"Okay, okay, I love you too." I giggled.
A content smile lit up his face, he leaned in to me and kissed me.
