A week later; twenty two weeks pregnant.
"Oh my gods, I'm gonna die." I moan, my feet swelling
to the size of balloons, Trent just shook his
"Babe your not gonna die, do you need me to rub your
ankles again?" Relief washed through me, Trent's hands were
"Yes, please." I was sitting on the couch with my
legs spread out, my head resting against the back of the couch
and me rubbing my swelling belly with small circles. Little
bugger was being restless, I could feel it kicking and shifting a
lot durning the day and night. Never seems to stop moving, ever.
Trent's hands wrapped around my foot and rubbed gently on the
bottom of my foot to back up to my ankle.
"Is this helping, love?"
"Mmm, yes it is. Thank you Trent." He continued
"We need to talk about possible telling my parents
about, well everything. I don't want them denied their grandchild
just because they don't know about the immortal world." Trent
sigh, and kept rubbing.
"I know, babe. It's all very complicated though.
Usually a human is only told about the immortal world on two
conditions, one they are mates to one of the immortals or two
they find out by themselves."
"But, Trent, it isn't fair to them they should know
about us, of why were together of how they next grandchild is
older than Micah that was convinced way before this little one.
Besides Josh is a vampire as well, they can't live to never see
both of us, they love us too much Trent."
I pulled out my pity card and gave him a puppy dog
look, he tried to hold his face a remain stern, but all he got
for his efforts was more puppy face, finally he cracked a smile
"Alright, love. If you think they can handle it then
we will tell them. Let's call Josh and tell him to bring Sara
over as well. You may want to call your Mom and tell her you have
to tell her something." I nodded, as Trent handed his cell phone
to me, I clicked some buttons and dialed my Mom's
"Hello?" My Mom answered the phone.
"Hey Mom it's me."
"Oh, hi darling. I was just about to call you and
wish you a happy birthday." I laughed.
"Well, I'm glad you remembered, I forgot today was my
birthday. Anyways, Josh, Sara, Trent and I need to probably talk
to you about something."
"Will I like it?"
"Hmm, well I know you'll like part of the thing we
have to talk about."
"Come on you know I'm bad at surprises tell me the
thing I'll like."
"Well, I don't know..."
"Please Ella?" I laughed.
"Your worse than me on Christmas. Well, your having
another grandchild." I pulled the phone away as my mother let out
a scream of joy, I gave a smile to Trent and he just shook his
head. I put it back when the screaming
"See this is part of what we all have to talk to you
and Dad about. He's home right?"
"Yes, of course."
"Alright, well I have to call up Josh, and we'll be
right over." I hung up and dialed Josh's number.
"Hey, Josh. Um we need to tell the
"Everything, Trent agreed with me that we should.
It's not fair that after they thought you were dead that you will
have to disappear soon and me as well. I'm twenty weeks pregnant
and there is no explanation for it except the
truth. It's not fair to them to deprive them of us and their
grandkids." Josh sighed.
"I knew this was gonna come up soon, alright I'm
bringing Sara and her twenty five weeks pregnant butt. Your
explaining how your baby's gonna be born before Sara's not
"Fine, but your telling them your a
"But you have to tell them your sleeping with a vamp
and having his baby. That's gonna be worse." I winced, it
"Fine, met you at Mom's in ten."
We got to Mom's about a minute before them, I
couldn't drive anymore cause my belly was in the way, besides
Trent got nervous when I drove cause I didn't have vamp reflexes.
When they pulled up, I pulled myself out of the car, Sara got out
and waddled to me throwing her arms around me and giving me a
"Happy twenty third birthday, sweetie." I laughed and
hugged her back.
"Thanks Sar." She pulled back and brushed her hair
"You getting any sleep durning the
"No, little one here is awake twenty four seven, I
wonder when the bugger will crash."
"Soon, it doesn't last forever. You'll be able to
sleep for a little while longer then the babe be out and
bothering you by crying."
"Oh, how I relish theses quiet times then." I was
wearing Trent's over sized coat so I wouldn't shock my mother
with the size of my stomach till she knows the truth. Josh came
up gave a nod to Trent and wrapped his arm around Sara. We walked
up to the door and Mom opened it with Dayton in her
"TA!" Dayton screamed, reaching for Trent. He
chuckled and rubbed the buggers head, I got the look in his eyes,
he wanted Mom to have something conforming in her arms when she
heard the news. Mom laughed, and kissed Dayton's cheek. She
opened the door more and let us all in.
"So what is this big secret?"
"Wheres Dad?" Josh asked first.
"Right here." Dad came in through the kitchen door
and wrapped Mom up in a hug. "Your Mom's here getting worried so
perhaps you should just spill both of you."
"Josh you first." Josh groaned.
"You know how I disappeared? Well I didn't lose my
memory, after the accident I almost died. I was told by the
person who saved me I had to leave my life behind for I wasn't
who I used to be, but that wasn't true I was
just a little bit different. I came for Sara a little while after
and told her what happened. She's accepting of who I am now, now
I need you to believe me I'm not crazy. Ella knows the truth as
well. Mom, Dad I'm a vampire." Mom bursted out in
"Well, now. I had no idea my little children knew
about the immortal world." Our mouths dropped open. "Guys Weston
was a halfling, but turned to a human after his twenty first
birthday. He told me when we first went out and I believed him.
So my sons a vamp now eh? So Ella what are you a wolf?" I
"No, I'm still human. Trent's a vampire as well, so
eh my pregnancy is a little advance." Mom nodded, and Dad just
"So not a big deal then, is this all you wanted to
talk about?" I nodded, and she smiled pulling me into a hug, she
laughed as my huge bump hit her. She pulled back. "So, how far is
my little grand baby?" I smiled, and unzipped Trent's jacket
handing it to him. Mom's eyes bugged.
"It's been only what a week since I last saw you." I
"I was already pregnant when I came down for
Christmas, I'm twenty two days, but in size I'm twenty two weeks.
Every day is a week for halfling babies."
"Wow, hey little bugger." My Mom cooed to my stomach
giving it a little rub. "So do you know if its a girl or a
"No, you'd have to ask Trent. I don't know and I don't want to know. It's no fun if it's not a surprise." Trent just snorted and wrapped his arms around me. I was happy my family knew everything and only two things left to bother me. Trent didn't love me and Frank wanted me for himself. Life should be more blissful, but sadly my life is not. I guess I had to take what I could get.
I'm sorry this was such a short chapter I had nothing really it's too soon for the battle so this is a filler, bare with me and I'll give you the battle in about two chapters. Thanks, Meg
