I don’t know what life holds for me now, but I now have a concept of time whereas I never had before. I have someone that will be there for me and with me as I grow up. Likewise for him. We will be there for each other. My life up until now has been no life at all. Just one day blurring into the next. Now I have something to mark time against. Falling in love can change everything.
5 years later….
“Oh my God! Oh my God! Oh my God! Where’s your bag?!” I yelled out panicked. Isis pointed to me. “You have it honey.” I nodded and looked at my shoulder where it was strapped. “Okay then let’s do this!” I raced downstairs and grabbed the car keys. This is it!
Hopping in my car I drove quickly down our driveway and got halfway to where we were supposed to go when I noticed the car was far too quiet. “Oh sh*t!” I yelled out and hit the dashboard. I made a hard U-turn and got back home. I left the car running and bolted inside where Isis was sitting on the couch looking bored and eating some ice-cream. “I wondered how long it would take for you to notice I wasn’t with you.” She chuckled but hissed in pain as she clutched her large stomach. I rushed over to her side, “Are you okay?” I asked nervously. She gritted her teeth and grabbed my hand, making me go cross-eyed of how hard she was squeezing.
“Does it look like I’m alright?!” She yelled. After a moment the contraction passed. “Now can we go…this time me coming with you?” She said mockingly. I chuckled nervously and helped her to the car as quickly as I could. When I was driving back to the hospital I hadn’t realized I was hyperventilating until she grabbed my hand. “Breathe…in and out.” She instructed. I let out a chocked laugh. “Aren’t our roles supposed to be reversed?” I asked. She laughed, but it was cut short when another contraction hit making my heart speed up.
“Oh sh*t!” She screamed making me grow increasingly alarmed. Isis hardly EVER cussed…she must be in pain. I sped up further until my tires squealed when I made it go in park outside the hospital. Let them tow it I don’t care! I rushed over to her side with her bag around my shoulders.
“I don’t ever want another baby!” She gritted out in agony. I felt helpless as we made our way inside, “Sugar, if I could do it for you I w-” She cut me off with a glare. Oh crap, I’m in trouble. “Don’t. Even. Say. It! You can’t, because you’re a guy and everyone knows guys have it easier!” She yelled making some nurses chuckle under their breaths. I looked on for help, when one of them came up with a wheelchair.
“Thank you.” I mumbled. She winked at me, “It’s best if you just not talk until it’s all over.” She advised with a laugh. I took a deep breath as she gave us some papers to fill out. “How far along are the contractions?” A nurse asked me. I looked at my wife clueless. Isis rolled her eyes and muttered under her breath. I just gave her a sheepish smile. “Their about seven minutes or so.” She answered.
“Okay so just fill these out real quick then we’ll get you up to Labor and Delivery. Congratulations by the way.” I looked at the nurse with alarm. “Why can’t she have her room now?! She’s in labor!” I said with wide eyes. D*mmit! My wife’s in labor and they’re having us fill out papers?!
“Calm down sir, labor usually takes quite a while. It’s when they hit between four to five minutes apart you should be panicking.” She joked, but my face drained of color. She sighed and shook her head, “Men…no wonder
