6 months later…
“Come on baby, you’re doing so great!” I said from my position behind Siara on the hospital bed.
“If I’m doing so great, why is our son refusing to come out?” she cried, tiredly. She had been pushing for the last 30 minutes and our son was playing peek-a-boo with us right now. “I swear, he’s not even here and he’s already a trouble maker like you!”
I tried to hide my amusement, not wanting to anger her in anyway. After all, her hands were gripping my thighs as they lay around her sides, and they were a little too close to my manhood. I didn’t want to risk being permanently castrated. “I know, and I’m sorry he’s giving you such a hard time, but he’s almost out now.”
“That’s right, Siara. One more solid push should do it, so on your next contraction I want you to push with all your mite.” Dr. Collins told her.
She looked up at me then, “If he doesn’t come out this time, I want you to stick your Alpha hands in there and pull him out. Do you understand me Mason Ravers?” I stared at her beautiful face. Her eyes showed the strain of her labor and her hair was matted to her forehead with sweat on her brow, but she was never more beautiful to me than in that moment.
“I don’t think I’ll have to babe, but okay.” I said just to appease her. She forced a smile and with her next contraction pushed with everything she had. Our son came charging out into the arms of Dr. Collins and after he used a little green sucker to clean his mouth and nose I heard the most beautiful sound, my son’s cries. Dr. Collins handed me the scissors so that I could cut his umbilical cord.
My vision blurred as I captured Siara’s lips in a kiss full of love and thanks for giving me a son. Her eyes were equally wet and we stared at our son in awe as the doctor and nurse cleaned him up. Dr. Collins then placed him in Siara’s arms and he quieted almost instantly. His little face was set in a frown, obviously bothered that he had been pulled from his cozy home in Siara’s stomach, but as Siara brushed her finger along his cheek, his frown cleared and he blinked a bit before opening his eyes completely.
The love I felt for this little pup before me the instant our eyes met was indescribable. I could imagine it is what female wolves feel when discovering their mates for the first time and it helped me understand even more what Siara must’ve gone through. I knew without a doubt that I would spend all of my days protecting and loving him as much as I did his mother. I touched his silky hair, as black as mine, and felt my heart fill with completeness.
“Luna Ravers, we have to finish cleaning him up and weighing him, but once that’s done we will bring him right back to you.” the nurse said at our side.
We both planted soft kisses to his forehead, then Siara handed him to the nurse. She rested her body against my chest, exhausted. “Thank you so much, baby. You were incredible. I love you.” I said in her ear.
“You don’t have to thank me, I’d do anything for you, but giving birth to that little boy right there was my gift as much as yours. I love you, Mason.” she said with a smile so beautiful on her face.
We watched as they cleaned, weighed, and measured our son. He was 8 lbs. 4 oz. and 23 inches long. Quite a big guy and already built for his future role as Alpha. Once he was done, the nurse placed him in Siara’s arms. We stared at the blessing before us and I smiled before asking, “So, you said you’d do anything for me. Ready to give him a little brother or sister?”
If looks could kill, Siara would have been a widow this very moment. “If I wasn’t holding our son right now I’d punch you, Mason.” I laughed startling our son who was about to cry, but acting on her motherly instincts, Siara opened the top of her hospital gown and helped my son to nurse for the first time.
Just when I thought she couldn’t be more beautiful.
I watched with love as my wife and mate nourished our son and thanked the moon goddess above for blessing me with the two of them. Even though I was joking about Siara having another child right now, I couldn’t wait for her to be full with another pup of mine in the future. Yes, it was a rough 5 months of midnight cravings, sudden mood swings, and sometimes restless nights of worry for her, but it was all worth it to have the little boy currently sleeping in her arms. Plus, I couldn’t wait to get started on the baby making again!
