Dimitri's Wish - Chapter Forty Nine

Sound asleep Dimitri gets some much needed sleep from being on the move for so long to get what was needed to save Emily's life that he didn't realize that he had fallen asleep for a while. 

Slowly stiring from his sleep he can feel Emily in his arms. 

Then his eyes spring to life when it dawns on him that Emily is no longer just laying there like he had her before but snuggled up to his side as if she had moved into position and curled up in his arms. She was now on her side and breathing steady. 

Slowly moving her out of his arms he slides out of bed and just stares at her sleeping peaceful. As if to reach out to wake her like he had always done since they had moved back to his house. He wanted to wake her up but didn't want to disturb her either. He stood and pondered the decision. 

All the sudden she turns over away from him still asleep. She never opens her eyes but moves her body slowly as if she just rolled over in her sleep. Dimitri's stops breathing as he watches in amazement. 

Finally he gets up the nerve and reaches over gently and turns her toward him. She faces upward on her back but doesn't wake when he moves her. "Emily, please wake up love," Dimitri whispers as he strokes her hair. 

"I know your in there. You moved love, come back to me. Please wake up," he whispers. 

He waits and waits and no response. She lays still and doesn't move a muscle. "Emily, come back to me," he tells her as his voice starts to tremble with disappointment. 

Almost loosing hope he scoops her up from the bed and pulls her into his lap. Her head falls to his shoulder and he sits there rubbing her hand. "You need to come back to me," he says with demand in his voice. 

"Were going to have a baby and you need to come back to me. I need you more now than ever," he says as he pulls her closer to him. 

Emily shifts in Dimitri's arms and her eyes flutter open. Dimitri gasps as he turns her in his arms. "Hey you," he whispers as he strokes her face. 

"Welcome back, don't do that to me ever again," he says in a stern voice. "Did I die?" I ask. "Only for a brief moment I thought I lost you forever. My world ended, Emily. I can't live without you. I will never put you in harms way again. I can't tell you how sorry I am for what I did. When Daniel called and said you had died I lost it. I would have never forgave myself," he says. 

 "You and this baby are my world," he says as he strokes my face. "What! What are you talking about? A baby! Am I pregnant?" I gasp at the sudden shock. 

"Yes love you are with child. My child. And I will protect you and our son or daughter with my life," he whispers as he pulls me closer.

A baby, a baby with Dimitri my one wish that I had long time ago. A new pain opens for a brief moment when I remember the first child we lost but a new joy fills me when I think of a little girl or boy that I thought was impossible to have was finally coming true. 

Then a sudden fear hits me. "Dimitri, you were a Night walker when we.....What if the baby is a Night Walker too?" I ask with a daunting fear of the truth. "We don't know just yet what the baby is but it's alive and that's all the matters to me. I got you and the baby. It doesn't matter what it is. We will face the situation no matter what the outcome. We will make this work," he says as he tries to reassure me. But deep down inside I'm scared to death. 

The nurse places the monitor on the table beside the bed and turns it on. She puts the wand on my belly and the cold jelly makes me shiver. She slowly starts moving it across my belly and stops as a strong heartbeat fills the room. The baby's heartbeat, my baby, and it's alive. 

I glare over at the screen to see a small little dot. It doesn't even look like a baby yet but its got a heart and it's strong. "So what do you see?" I ask the nurse as she is studying the screen. "It's to early to tell anything other than its alive. It shows no signs of fangs or wings," she chuckles at me as she moves the wand more to get some measurements of the baby. 

"So how far am I?" I ask pretty much knowing the answer to that one since me and Dimitri only had the opportunity only a few times in a few weeks. "It looks like you are eight weeks give or take a few days," she says as she finishes the measurements. 

We will put you on a good diet, and I'll give you something to help put some weight back you on. We will continue lots of fluids and plenty of supplements and vitamins. I'll keep a close eye on the baby's progress and hopefully as it develops more we can determine what it is. A boy, girl, fairy, or nightwalker," she says as she finishes up. My heart sinks as I think of raising a little night walker. I wasn't sure how I was going to manage it since I knew nothing about them other than they destroyed my family and lived on blood. What would I be able to offer a child like that. My mind raced at the odds of my situation.

Dimitri's Joy - Chapter Forty Eight

"I can't thank you enough for what you did for Emily, I know it was a long trip here and what you had to do to get what you needed was difficult but I wanted you to know we are forever in your debt," he tells Nolan.

A grin spreads across Nolan's face. "It was a pleasure to do something that could change the life of someone. It's been so long since I had used my magic that I almost forgot how to use it. The last time I did it was to bring back my wife when so long ago her grandmother killed her and her brother. You and Emily owe me nothing," he replies. 

"Can I see her now?" Dimitri asks. "Yes you can but remember that she may still be unconscious and unaware of what happened to her. If she comes to, try to not put her into shock with the news that she died. And don't alarm her of the baby's state. She may not even know that she's pregnant," he says. 

"Thank you bro," Dimitri says as he pulls Daniel into his arms and almost squeezes the life out of him. "It's what brothers do," he replies as Dimitri squeezes harder. 

"I'm going to move her up to her room so can you guys get what ever she needs, like the ivs and stuff so we can get her well again," Dimitri asks. "I'll get it ready. We will have it up there but won't bring it in until you have her situated in her room," Daniel replies. 

Dimitri heads out of the room leaving everyone to their tasks while he heads down to see Emily.

A baby, I'm going to be a dad. The excitement fills him with delight. A little girl or boy running around. Will it be a little fairy like his mommy or a strong boy like his daddy. His thoughts go ragged as he makes his way down to the next floor. I can't get too excited what if it didn't make it? I got to push these ideas out of my mind till I know for sure. 

He enters the room and sees Emily laying peacefully on the table where he last seen her. She's a welcoming site and his heart speeds up as he gets closer to her. 

He for the first time sees her wings glowing and moving in a slow rhythm as her chest slowly rises. Her skin is now more pink and not the pale blue color that he had seen the last time he was in there with her. 

Dimitri sets down beside Emily as he watches her breath. He watches her wings flutter and its a welcoming sign that she's still with him. He brushes her cheek and the warmth of her skin soothes his ragged soul. 

"I thought I lost you again. When Daniel called me and told me you passed, my world stopped. I can't live in this world without you," Dimitri tells Emily as he strokes her face. 

He picks her up and starts for the door. He was hoping that his touch would rouse her from her sleep but she still sleeps. He pulls her close so he can feel her heartbeat on his chest. He slowly makes his way upstairs with her. 

Dimitri lays her on the bed and she lays as if shes only asleep. 

After Dimitri lays Emily on the bed and situates her, the Doctor that Dimitri privately hired checks Emily out. She gets Emily hooked up on an IV drip to help with her weight and nutrition to get her more stable. She then hooks up the monitor to monitor her vitals while they wait for her to regain consciousness. 

She's all ready now. All we have to do is wait. I'll be here with her the whole time. I'm not leaving this room unless I have to go and you can stay with her while I do," she giggles. 

"How do her vitals look right now?" Dimitri asks. "She looks good but you can tell she's very weak. She's very dehydrated and needs lots of nutrients to get her and the baby on track.

"So far the heartbeat of the baby is strong. I will know more when I get a ultrasound. I have a machine being delivered later today," she explains to Dimitri. Dimitri lets out a sigh of relief. A baby, I'm going to be a daddy and Emily I know will be excited when she finds out.

Dimitri scoots Emily over and pulls her into his arms. His exhaustion claims him and he drifts off to sleep with Emily by his side. The doctor stays in the room and keeps check on her vitals while they sleep.

Dimitri never moves. He seems so peaceful with Emily in his arms and his steady breathing means he's a little more relaxed.

The Gift Of Light - Chapter Forty Seven

The ball of light grows then explodes into tiny little lights around her body. 

Her body raises from the table and hovers lifeless. 

He continues to chant and smoke fills the air. 

Then Light explodes from her body. Just tiny little balls of light circle around her. Nolan continues.....

More light comes from her and Nolan is getting exhausted. He must continue. He knows its working and it's just a matter of time before she comes back to them. 

Then something happens. A light tiny at first starts coming from her back. It slowly starts to grow in size. Nolan steps back.

Then her wings explode from her back and comes to life with a slow rhythm. It's the only signs that it worked. 

Her body slowly comes down and rests back on the table. Nolan examines her and waves his wand one more time just to boost her life force. 

Motionless other than the slow rise and fall of her chest and her wings in motion is the only signs that she's alive. Nolan checks her over and finds that she has a steady but slow heart beat. Now that she's stable enough to leave Nolan heads upstairs to deliver the news to Dimitri. 

Chris and Daniel all jump up off the floor and head over to Dimitri and Nolan. "It worked, but she still has not regained consciousness," he says. 

Everyone in the room lets out a breath of relief. "Is that normal for her to be unconscious?" Dimitri asks. "Yes she died and her body has to have time to recover. It could be hours or days before she regains consciousness," he explains. 

"There's something else you might want to know," Nolan says. "What?," Dimitri looks at him with concern. "She's with child but I don't know the status of the baby as of right now. It most likely died when she did and I felt it's presence when I was doing the spell. I don't know if I brought it back with her or if it still is dead. Only time will tell. 

"A baby!" Dimitri chokes out. "I was a night walker when we..............and it could be a fairy, a night walker or something else. It wont harm her will it?" he asks. "It shouldn't but we need to keep a eye on her to make sure she recovers fully. She will need fluids and plenty of rest. Then we can have some specialists come in and take a look at the baby if she doesn't miscarry," Nolan tells Dimitri.
