Emily's New Life - Chapter Fifty

After a week of coming back from the dead I finally have a little bit of strength back in my legs with Dimitri's help. I manage to get on my feet with Dimitri wrapped around me like a vine. He's been so helpful with caring for me that he wont let me do anything for myself. 

"I think I can manage on my own. I feel stronger than I have in weeks," I tell Dimitri as he holds on to me with a death grip. "I'm not taking any chances of you falling," he says as he takes a step with me.

The door opens and what appears to be a doctor comes in. "I see you are making a lot of progress. I'm Paul, your personal doctor," he says.

Dimitri sets me on my feet and backs up so I can talk face to face with Luke. "So you must be Emily," he says with a smile. "Yep that would be me," I reply.

I will be moving in to take care of you during your pregnancy to make sure everything goes as plan," he explains. "Your going to move in the whole time?" I ask. "Yes that way I can be here if anything happens and me and your nurse, Lilly can monitor your pregnancy. That way you don't have to go to any hospitals. We will make a sterile room here for you and the baby when it comes time to deliver," he explains. "I'll be having the baby here?" I ask almost in horror. "What if something bad happens?" I ask. "Don't worry I'm trained in those matters. We will have all the equipment needed for any problems and the staff will be prepared for any complication you might have. You are in good hands," he tells me with confidence which settles me a little.

Dimitri retreats to take a nice hot bath while my doctor works with me on some things. I know he must be enjoying it because he hasn't been two feet away from me since I came too.

I get dressed and get ready to work with the doctor. He's going to see how much I can do since I have returned from the dead. He starts off hovering in front of me.

"Now you try and keep off the floor as long as you can," he instructs. I have not even tried to fly since my condition had gotten so bad. Now I was going to find out how well or how sick I was. I flutter my wings and feel the floor fall below my feet.

"Very good," he says. I keep up my pace and he starts talking to me. "Your doing great. Now lets see if you can fly and talk at the same time," he says. "Oh, I thought you were going to suggest me chewing gum while trying to fly," a say with a grin. "Naw, not ready to go that serious," he says with a grin to match mine. After we finish our session which must have lasted for hours I find myself very hungry.

I change into my pjs and find the perfect opportunity to sneak downstairs to surprise Dimitri with some of my home cooking. My stomach feels way to empty and I know I'm going against all their wishes for me to be resting. But I can't help it. I want to cook and no one is going to stop me. 

I gather stuff out of the fridge and begin to whip it all together. Waffles sound nice for this nice morning. I pour the batter into a pan and head over to the oven. 

I place them in the oven and wait. 

It doesn't take Dimitri long to find me in the kitchen and just in time as I place the plates of waffles on the counter. I sit down before Dimitri has the chance to say anything. He smiles and sits down beside me. Taking a bite he looks over and smiles and nods in approval. 

"So you like?" I ask with a grin on my face. "Oh course I do. I have missed your cooking for a while now. It's so nice to actually eat it for the first time. I look forward to more. You better not over do it. We have to protect our baby, and you till you are well," he says after shoving another fork full of waffles into his mouth. 

After getting the ok I head to take a nice hot bath unsupervised. I run warm water and strip out of my clothes. I sink down into the tub full of warm water that seems to relax every muscle in my body. I wash off all the medical smells and gunk that was left from the days I was completely out of it. 

When I'm finished I sit in the living room waiting on Dimitri to meet up with me. I choose the rocker that's in front of the fire place in the living room. I sit and think of when I will rock a little one to sleep in the future. 

Dimitri finds me in the living room and takes my hand and leads me outside.When we clear the steps he pulls me into his arms taking me by surprise. "I have wanted to do this all day. I have missed us so much," Dimitri says as he crushes his lips to mine. 

We kiss more and my hunger for him deepens. I think he feels it and pulls away just a little. I feel my disappointment as soon as his lips leave mine. 

He turns me in his arms and then I spin away from him. 

Pulling me to his body he dips me low and his warm lips are on mine again. I will never get tired of his kisses. 

He pulls me slowly to the ground. Dimitri sits back and looks up to the stars. The insects provide the soothing sounds of the night as the stars dance above us. The moon provides the night with light and the fire flies light the trees like Christmas. I sit back and scoot closer to Dimitri.

"Look Emily a shooting star," he says as he points up to the sky. Pointing out many stars and constellations we sit quietly enjoying each others company. 

The next day I'm up and ready before Dimitri even gets out of bed. He skips down the steps in his pjs that hangs so sexy off his hips. My mouth goes dry as he stops right in front of me. "How's my girl and my baby?" he asks as he gently rubs my belly. Well this gal is feeling good but the baby well it's just a little blob right now," I giggle. "A blob," he asks in amusement. "Yep it has no legs or arms. Just a little blob," I reply. "If you say so, but when we get a ultrasound and it's got legs its officially a baby," he adds as he heads up the steps to get dressed. 

He returns all dressed for the day. My belly rumbles a little and before I know it. 

He grabs me up crushing his lips to mine. Oh those lips, he must have been gifted for kissing alone. 

He dips me back and deepens the kiss. Breaking my lips from his, "If you keep this up I will have to demand you take me upstairs," I say in a gasp as he claims my lips again. He quickly sets me back on my feet, "my bad," he says with a grin. 

I pull back and grab at my stomach. "Oh no not again," I groan. "What again?" Dimitri says with concern. 

"I'm going to throw up," I say as I take off running for the bathroom. 

I make it but bearally before it all comes up.

Everything that I ate today is now in the toilet. After a few minutes it finally stops. 

I stand up and get my bearings. I feel weak but manage it well. I stand there a few more minutes before I go back to where Dimitri waits patiently. 

I head back into the living room and Dimitri had disappeared again. I set down in the rocker and let my stomach settle. 

I get hit with a sudden urge to sleep. I find myself so sleepy that I make my way over to the couch and lay down. I figure a nap won't hurt.

I hear Dimitri and the nurse in the room but far off. I pay them no mind as I slumber. "It's normal," I hear her say before I drift off again.  

I stir a little but don't open my eyes. I hear Dimitri head up the steps and I drift off again. 

I feel the sofa shift with weight. I peek and see Dimitri in his pjs setting at the end of the couch looking at me. "Sleepy head," he says with a smirk. "Yep indeed," I say in between a yawn. Let's get you to bed." he says. "Sounds good to me," I say as I sit up.

Dimitri carries me upstairs and helps me into bed. He walks over to the other side sliding in behind me. He pulls me into his arms and nuzzles up to my back. I can feel his breath on my neck as he settles into a comfortable position. It's a wonderful feeling to have him with me. I slowly drift off to sleep.

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.
