This is the last chapter except for the epilogue then I will post my next book. I already have two chapters done in that one, thanks for reading and loving it!
My older brother fell down after that bastard fell
dead, was my brother dead? Was he? I felt vibration as Ella
screamed, she stiffened and grabbed her stomach, and I knew she
had gone into labor when she screamed again, she then blanked
out. I caught her gently.
"Drake check on him!" Drake ran forward to Trent bent
down pulled the sword out of Trent and he groaned.
"Damn." Trent muttered, he passed out again from the
"He's alive!" I sighed, and looked down at Ella she
was withering in pain even while blanked out.
"Bring him to TVC I have to get Ella there now, she's
having the baby!" I lifted her up, she weighed nothing. "Rain I
need your help, come with me so we can set things up." Rain
nodded, wiping the blood off of her. Queen Athena
"Can I go Drake? I'm tired and happy to be rid of
Yoni, he was not my spy he was blackmailing me, I'm so sorry for
all of this." Drake nodded.
"I thought as much, you may go and I'm sorry for my
family for killing so many of yours."
"It's alright you had to, come my children it's time
to go." She waved her other minions left and they followed her in
a run. I carried Ella with Rain next to me.
"Drake come on bring Trent." Drake nodded, and threw
Trent over his shoulders. "Jason grab your sister she can't
walk." Jason phased, and ran to his sister. We ran up to TVC
quickly and shoved the door open yelling.
"Carla help your Mom out with the healing, Trent's
hurt, Ella fainted and went into labor and Kristy needs rest she
got hurt as well." Carla came up with Dani in her
"Is that all? Is the fighting over?"
"Yes, all over." I ran up the stairs with Ella and
Rain and Carla followed me. I set Ella down on the bed and
grabbed new sheets, I threw them over Ella and she stirred a bit,
but didn't wake up. I watched Carla and Rain get things ready and
ran down the stairs, Drake was bringing in Trent and ran up the
stairs with him to the other room with a bed. We set him down on
it, and I washed my hands and cleaned his wound I had to before I
could heal him.
I pressed a couple of gauzes to stop the bleed and
pulled them away, I placed my hand on his wound and letting my
palms warm I healed him, slowly. His ribs were broken as well,
and I healed them too. His face lessen in pain, but stayed
unconscious, he was alive, but breathing shortly. I turned around
when I heard screaming, Ella was awake and I walked back to her
All I knew was pain the second I woke up, withering,
excruciating, pain. I was screaming at the pain, it was unwanted,
so unwanted. I was already suffering from... I'm not sure if I
could even think it, his death. Tears slipped down my face, and
Carla wiped them away placing a cool cloth on my
It felt nice, a little relief from the pain and the
heat radiating from my body. My lower body was ripping itself,
and I felt like death.
"Carla, it hurts." Carla's face soften, and she
brushed my hair.
"I know sweetie, just try to breath." I took a deep
breath, and the pain lessened a bit, until it was just a bit of
an ache. I sighed in relief. Thea walked through the
"How are you feeling?" I closed my
"Like hell." Thea nodded, and placed a hand on my
face, it was nice against my skin.
"I haven't been able to get to her yet, but I will."
I nodded, and pain started flashing through me, I gasped and
grabbed my stomach. The baby kicked and more pain shot through my
being. I screamed again, and breathed from my nose. Trent! I
wanted him so bad, but he wasn't coming back. I turned on my side
and buried my face in the pillow. I started
"Shhh, Ella this isn't good for the baby, whats
"Trent. He's dead, and I never told him." Carla
brushed my head.
"He's not dead sweetie."
"Don't lie to me just to get me to calm down, I won't
believe it unless I see him for myself. He is dead I saw him
dropped dead!" I shook my head at the pain it sent my heart, dead
that evil word. My body shook again. "I want my Mom." I said,
crying more. Thea sighed, scratching her head.
"I suppose I could get your Mom, Ella. Will that
help?" I nodded, and she flipped open her phone. "What the
number?" I said my Mom's number and begged for her to answer. She
dialed it. "Hi, I'm Trent's sister Thea, um Ella has gone into
labor and she's asking for you." I heard my Mom buzz on the
phone. "He's indisposed at the moment, can you come to this
address?" She rattled the address off, said bye, and closed the
phone. "There she said to tell you to breath and she will be here
in a few minutes."
"Ok." I said very tired, pain ripped through me again
and I cried out, my back hurt and my lower stomach was stretching
very painfully. Carla patted my head.
"Shhh, it's alright." Rain walked through the
"How's she doing?"
"Not very well, she is having extreme pain and is
crying a lot, but what's worrying me the most is that the babe
doesn't seem to be moving to be born. It's like its waiting for
something." My baby was waiting for its Daddy, but that wasn't
Little one, Daddy isn't coming, I'm so sorry
baby. My baby kicked me, as if to say 'I'm waiting anyways',
and I sighed. Stubborn like its Dad. Thea left without a word,
and came back a minute later with my Mom in tow.
"Mommy." I started crying again, she
ran up to me, and bent down to me.
"Baby whats wrong?"
"It hurts so much, and Trent's... dead." I sobbed
harder and Mom wrapped her arms around me.
"Oh I'm so sorry, darling." Carla came over to my mom
and tapped on her shoulder.
"Ella doesn't belive us, but Trent is alive. Would
she belive you if you saw him?" Mom looked back at
"No. I know your both just trying to make it easer on
me, I just don't want to not talk about... Trent." I sobbed his
name, and punched a pillow. Mom sighed, and sat down on the bed.
She rubbed my hair and my stomach, I closed my eyes and tried to
relax. The baby kicked again. Carla looked down at
"Ella, I don't think the baby's even moving, it's
embarrassing know, but I need to take a look." I sighed, and
nodded, Mom moved away. She pulled up the sheet and pulled off my
bottoms, she pressed on the top of my stomach. She shook her
head. "Not moving an inch, does it still hurt?" I
"I don't think the baby will move ever. I'm pretty
sure little one thinks it's Daddy is coming back and won't move
till then." I said sadly, she nodded, and I gasped as a huge pain
ripped me open from the inside I screamed blood murder, crippling
from the pain. "DAMN IT!" I cried more, holding my stomach, Carla
told me soft things in my ear, until the pain was gone. I sighed,
and closed my eyes for a few minutes of rest.
I woke up in a bed, weak and trebling I had heard a
blood curtailing scream from the next room over, and I knew it
had been Ella. I groaned, as I swung my legs over the bed, I
stood up wobbling and tried to take baby steps to the door. It
swung open and Carla was there, her eyes wide and her mouth
"Thank gods your awake, but you shouldn't be up yet."
My voice was hoarse.
"I heard Ella screaming, she needs me I need to get
to her. Does she know I'm alive?"
"We've told her, but she denies it saying we were
trying to make it easer on her. She doesn't believe me, she does
need you, but you need to sit down. Drink some blood and then go
to Ella, the babe won't come and she is in pain. You need your
"No, I want to see Ella now! If she is in so much
pain then I will help her, get me to the room and then get me
some blood, but Ella needs me first." I started back to the
"Alright, let me help you there." She put a arm under
my arms and helped me to Ella's room.
The next wave of pain was longer and once it was done
I almost passed out, damn this was ridiculous. I heard the door
open again, but I kept my eyes closed, I didn't care who was here
I just needed rest. Sleep would be nice!
I felt a hand brush my hair out of my face, and I
thought it was Mom, I grabbed the hand, but it felt muscular. My
eyes fluttered open, and I gasped. Trent was looking worn, but
alive he was looking at me with such tenderness. My mouth was
open and I started crying again. He sat down on the bed and
pulled my face to his chest, he smelled so good.
Like a comfort, pine, and wood. I hear Mom speak
"We will give you two sometime." And I hear Carla and
Mom slip out.
"Trent, I love you. Please don't ever do that to me
again, I thought I would die, hell I think I almost did a few
times. I love you, I love you." I held him close to me, his arms
wrapped around me.
"You have no idea how long I've waited to hear you
say those words butterfly. I love you too. Very much and
"I've waited a long time as well, and I'm sorry for
not tell you sooner."
"When did you find out you loved me?"
"When you saved me from Frank, and just looked at me
taking care of me so well. Also the time when we first made love,
only a heartless woman wouldn't fall in love with you after
that." Trent laughed.
"I've loved you since the very beginning, and I
always will." I smiled, happy tears sparking in my eyes, then the
baby started kicking and I gasped as I felt moving, I felt like
my body was stretching again. I whimpered, and Trent held me
closer. "Take a deep breath, and just relax your muscles." Carla
and my Mom walked back in I was feeling weird.
"Ella can I look again?" I nodded and laid back, she
did the same thing removed the sheet and pressed the top of my
stomach, she smiled now. "Little one is now most certainly
moving, you started at two cm and now your eight cm. This babe
should be out quite soon." I sighed in relief, and closed my eyes
again resting with Trent's hand wrapped around mine, giving me
* * *
An hour later
"Ella your doing great! Just one more push!" Carla
said, cheering me on. I took a shaky breath, felt Trent's hand
squeeze mine, and I had the strength to push our baby out. I
pushed down one more time and Carla caught the little bundle, she
"It's a boy." I laughed, and happily sat up. She was
cleaning him up and he let out a cry, his voice was so cute and
it was comforting. He screeched when Carla cleaned him off in the
warm water, he looked happy, looks like my baby's a water one. I
held out my arms, looking at Trent smiling. He nodded. Carla
wrapped him up tightly and handed me my baby, his nose was a
button nose, eyes like his Daddy and my light brown hair already
sat on top of his crown.
"Hi baby, hi sweetie." He gurgled and looked at me
with such bright green eyes, I looked back at Trent. "Isn't he so
handsome, just like his Daddy." Trent smiled proudly, and brushed
a finger on his downy cheek.
"He is isn't he, so what are you gonna name him, my
little mate?" I smiled.
"Atheo will be his first name." Trent's smile
"Your naming him after my Dad?"
"Of course I am, Theo is a good name for him. What
about his middle name, that's your job." Trent thought for a
"Lee." I nodded.
"Alright, then I guess its settled, your gonna be
Atheo Lee Vantenio." Trent's mouth dropped.
"Your gonna give him my last name." I nodded, and
rocked Theo back and forth.
"You wanna hold him?" Trent bit his lip and nodded. I
gently handed him to Trent and he held him closely to his chest,
Theo's tiny hand held Trent's finger and brought it to his mouth.
Thea walked in, her eyes blinked and she laughed.
"So, do I have a niece or nephew?" I
"A little nephew Thea come meet Theo Lee." Thea
laughed, and came up to us.
"Hi little buddy, I'm Aunt Thea." Theo gurgled, and
some what ignored Thea as he watched his Daddy. I laughed, and
laid back so tired, but very happy. Mom took a turn holding Theo
for a bit, when Drake carried in a wooden crib.
"Heres a little present from us." My smile crack my
face, it had light yellow blankets and bedding.
"AW. You guys didn't have to!" Drake's lips
"So, we thought it be nice, since we didn't have time
for a baby shower."
"Well thank you!" Mom gave Theo back to Trent, and he
"We are gonna leave you two alone now to rest,
goodnight." They waved out and Mom gave me a kiss on the head
before she left. When the door closed, Trent put Theo down in the
crib and tucked him in, his mouth parted in an 'o' and closed his
eyes. Trent pulled out new sheets and helped me to a chair, he
made the bed with clean sheets and helped me into a nightgown. We
slipped into bed, and held each other close.
"I love you, Trent." Trent smirked.
"I love you, too. Your mine now, and were mated forever."
Thank you for reading and sticking with me, once I am done with it I will post the epilogue
