LIT CHAPTER 3
Ahhh what a beautiful morning
it is! This is indeed one of my best and peaceful sleep I ever had. One of the
best thing to do in the morning is to do stretching. Ahh I love it! I look to
my left and saw Alex. Hayyy my babe is still sleeping, how can he be so
handsome while sleeping?
“Good morning Mr. Sunshine” I
whispered so that I won’t wake him up.
I softly traced my little
fingers from his eyes to nose, cheeks and…
“Hmm… enjoying the view babe?”
He suddenly woke up and asked me.
“Uhh.. Of course not, I was
just wondering how can you be this disgustingly ugly while sleeping.” I lied
and rolled my eyes.
“Ouch! Babe you’re hurting my
feelings!” Then he acted like he was shot in his chest and was really hurting.
Haha too adorable!
“Tch. Whatever. I should just
probably prepare our breakfast. What would you like to have for breakfast?” I
get up as I wear my robe and faced him.
“Anything, the usual I guess?”
“Same old heavy breakfast huh?”
I jokingly said
“Yes babe, please?” He pleaded
and did a puppy eyes.
“Fine! But please act your age
haha stop that annoying face, Alex” I said as I closed the door. I can still
hear his loud laughing voice.
Hmmm… what to cook? Ah! Okay
okay the usual… I walked towards the fridge and grab all the ingredients.
Hotdogs, eggs, ham, bacon and fruits. So what next? The rice!
“Where did Alex placed the pans
and caserole?” I opened all the kitchen cabinets where he might possibly place
it but the pans wasn’t there! It’s starting to irritate me. I even told him to
just place it in the second cabinet! Ugh this guy!
“ALEX!” I shouted
“Yes?!” He answered back
“WHERE THE HELL DID YOU PUT ALL
MY PANS?” I heard the door opened and his almost running footsteps
“My god Rosie why do you have
to shout? I just placed it in here” he said as he went on the unused cabinet
beside the fridge.
“I just decided the other day
to just put all the pans and the caserole here so that we can make use of it.”
He explained while he gives me the pan.
“And you didn’t even tell me?”
Why didn’t he told me? I looked like an idiot for looking the pans over and
over again inside the kitchen cabinets.
“Hehe I forgot?” He said as he
scratched the back of his neck. I glared at him.
He hugged me and kissed me on
my cheeks “babe I’m sorry if I forgot to tell you. Let’s stop fighting over the
pans please? It’s bad for the baby.” He said
“Exactly! I’m 9 months
pregnant! Just waiting for my due date, Alex. And you didn’t even bother
telling me, I am so tired looking for places you can possibly hide those stupid
pans!” I exclaimed. Call me overreacting but I am just really irritated because
I get tired easily because it’s my almost due date and I am feeling very heavy.
“Stop being mad now, Rosie. I
am really sorry.” He hugged me tightly
“Psh. Okay fine” I said
“You know what, just sit here”
he said as he motioned me to sit on the nearest chair and I looked at him with ‘What
are you planning to do?’ look.
“and you should just watch your
handsome husband, I’ll cook for our breakfast this time… as peace offering and
for you to not get tired.” Ohh and that answers my question. Hmm what a sweet
guy. He is still the same old Alex I knew.
After few moments he placed
everything on the dining table. Wow he really cooks well! A perfect husband
“Breakfast is ready! Babe
here’s your usual breakfast and this also, drink this for our baby” he said
while he put the pancakes and bacons on my plate and kissed my tummy.
“Eat well babies!” He excitedly
We ate silently except when I
asked him to give me some of his garlic rice and he just laughed at me. It just
really smells nice and looks very delicious to the point that it makes me crave
for rice. And I must say that his cooking skills got better. Waah I’m so full! Eating
rice wasn’t really on my to-do list for breakfast. I’m not really fond of rice.
But today is different, I ate rice.
“hmmm… what to do next?” I
asked myself since today is Saturday, no work and other plans either.
I decided to just watch on the
television and started to walk towards the living room when I suddenly stop.
Something in me just burst! I looked down and I saw it.
“BABE! ALEX! MY WATER SOMETHING
JUST BROKE!” I called Alex.
I am really frightened right
now. “What?!” He asked as he hurriedly went to me.
“Oh God! It’s a little earlier
than we expected! You’re going to give birth! Let’s go now to the hospital!”
Alex said as he carried me in a bridal style and we headed to the car.
Ugh this pain is killing me!
It’s hurting me way too much! Ugh I think I am in labor right now! “A-Alex!
Faster but drive safely! The pain is too much! I think this is what they call
labor.” I said as I grab the side of his shirt
“Y-yes! I will! J-just breathe
in and o-out! We’ll arrive minutes from now I promise just h-hold on babe!” He
said and like what he have said earlier we arrived at the hospital for like 10
hard minutes I don’t know how or what kind of driving skills he have done to
arrive that fast. I am indeed thankful for this man he is the best in
“Nurse! Doc! My wife’s in
labor! She’s about to give birth!” The nurses and the doctors came over to help
me and put me on a wheelchair and to assist me also. Ugh when will this pain
“Please take care of her” Alex
said when the doctors announced that they will send me to the operating room.
“I will be there for you I
promise. You’ll be alright just be strong and pray.” He said as a tear fell
from his eyes. I can clearly see through his eyes that he is very worried but
he wanted to look strong so that I can be strong too like him. He kissed me on
my forehead before the doctors moved me to the operating room.
As the operation’s about to
start I’m starting to feel anxious and nervous. I had a lot of what if’s that’s
going on with my mind.
“Is Alex there?” I asked the
“Yes, we’ll call him.” The
nurse answered me back I waited for Alex to come as the operation is on-going. I
heard the door of the operating room opened.
“Babe, I’m here. You’ll be
alright” he said as he caresses my hair and holds my hand tight. He is now
wearing a scrub suit that the hospital provided. He continuously give me words
of encouragement and he talks to me to divert my attention.
“Okay the baby’s about to go
out, this is going to be a little hard alright? You may experience heavy
breathing and a little pain but this will be fast.” The doctor said.
Alex tightly held my hand and
he looks very serious and nervous at the same time. He probably thinks that
being a girl sucks. Ugh.
Yep, the doctor is right this
is kind of hard. It feels like something
big inside me was removed. I bit my lower lip to ease the pain and the
nervousness I am feeling. I should be fine the doctors are doing their best to
make this fast and successful. After a few minutes we heard the most beautiful
and loud cry of a baby
“Congratulations! It’s a baby
boy!” The doctor happily announced.
“Oh gosh Alex! It’s a boy!” I
said to Alex.
I can still remember how the
doctor wants to reveal the gender every time we have an appointment with her.
But we insisted to make the baby’s gender a surprise.
“Yes, babe! I was actually
expecting that our baby will be boy but having the doctor confirmed my hunch, it
surprised the hell out of me.” Alex happily said.
I nodded at him because it’s true.
I also have a hunch that our baby will be boy but it actually surprised me when
the doctor said that it is really indeed a baby boy.
“Uwaaa!!!” A tear fell as I saw
my son on the other side being prepared. All the pain and sacrifices were worth
it! Seeing our baby being healthy makes me real happy!
“You did great, babe. I love
you” he said as he kissed me and caressed my hair.
This is the first time I saw
Alex cry except on our wedding day. He looked so happy, so am I.
I looked at William and there I
see my little angel that I carried for nine months. It was all worth it. I am
definitely happy to have my own family with Alex.
The nurse called Alex and
requested him to cut the umbilical cord. He went to the nurse and holds the
scissors. He looks funny and nervous! He cuts the umbilical cord with shaking
“You’re did great.” The nurse
said as Alex handed her again the scissors and went back to me.
“wooh, I was really nervous…”
he whispered to me and I just laughed.
The nurse then covered our baby
with blanket and she gave the baby to me. Oh gosh he is so cute and very
“Hi baby… mommy and daddy loves
you.” I whispered.
Alex kissed my forehead and asked me “What
will you name him?”
“Alexander William” I said to
“So you named him after me?”
“Yes but we will call him
William not Alex, is that alright with you?” I asked him
“Yes, of course. William it is.
If that’s what you want. Thank you for giving me William, Rosie. You don’t know
how much happy I am right now. I love you so much, Rosie” he said
“I love you too, Alex” I
“Forever and ever, babe.” I
heard Alex said before I closed my eyes and fell into a deep sleep.
