My body shook as another contraction rocked my body making me cry out in agony. I wrapped my arms tightly around my big belly and held on for deal like as the muscles crapped up. Tears were rolling down my face till the contraction finally stopped. I took a deep shaky breath before I started to crawl on my hands and knees to the kitchen to get the phone. I had to stop halfway through to stop and hold my bump again and cry out. I finally got to the phone and pulled myself up on the counter and chair next to it. I pulled the phone off the cradle and quickly dialed Tanner’s number. I held my bump as it happened again.
Me* Ow it hurts. Owwy please please make it stop. Ow.
Tanner* Baby what’s wrong? What happened? I’m almost home okay baby? Hold on.
Me* It hurts so much Tanner. Make it stop.
Tanner* Just breathe baby. Just breathe.
Me* I can’t it hurts so fucking much.
Tanner* Shh it’s going to be okay Ry. I’m running up the stairs now.
Me* OW OW OW OH MY GOD OW!
I felt my legs shaking till I fell to the ground landing on my already aching knees. I felt the scream bubble out of my mouth as the pain got worse as time passed.
Tanner* Almost there, Baby. Almost there. Close your eyes and take deep breaths.
Me* I can’t Tanner it hurts. It hurts so much. Ow make it stop.
Tanner* I can’t baby. I’m almost there I’m almost at the apartment okay? I am going to hang up but I need you to stay where you are till I get there. Okay Ryan? Stay.
Me* O-o-o-okay Please hurry it hurts so much.
I heard keys in the front door as it unlocked till I heard Tanner’s combat boots running into the living room. “Baby where are you?” He called out into the quiet house.
“In here Tanner.” I panted at him. He ran into the room to see me clutching my belly gasping for breath.
“Come on baby I’m taking you to the hospital right now.” He picked me up bring m close to his chest as my belly tightened again. I wrapped my arms around his neck holding tight as he walked me to the elevator to press the lobby. I had another contraction making me whimper and hold on tighter to Tanner. He rubbed my back gently as the doors opened to the empty lobby. He walked as fast as he could to his ca buckling me in before hightailing it to the base. “It going to be okay Ry, we are almost there.” He said rubbing my leg as he speeded into the stop for the gate.
“Wooh wooh there. What’s going on?” I looked up to see Hunter standing there in full uniform He had his gun behind his back as he looked at us than the time. Another contraction rocked through making me cry out in pain.
“Ow it hurts. God make it stop make it stop.” I cried squeezing Tanner’s hand tightly.
“Shh I know baby we are almost there.” He rubbed his thumb over my knuckles. Hunter signaled for the gate to open.
“You take my sister to the hospital now. I’ll call Mom and Dad; I’m sure Emmy will go to your apartment and get you some clothes. So go, I’ll be there when I’m done here.” He said walking back as Tanner sped off. I held onto my belly as Tanner pulled up to the hospital and got out making me smile. He forgot to put the truck in park. I parked the car and opened the door before I screamed out in agony.
“Tanner.” I sobbed. He came around fast picking me up wrapping his arms around me. I held on to him as I cried.
“Almost there Ryan. Just hold on Ryan.” He walked me into the Emergency room. The nurses looked up before she jumped up. The waiting room was quiet, as well as the halls.
“Can I help you?” She asked.
“My fiancée is in labor with our twins. She is in a lot of pain.” I started to scream as another contraction rocked my body. It hurt so much.
“I need a wheelchair over here and fast.” She called out into the hallway. She looked back at me and Tanner.
“How long have you been getting the labor pains?” She asked me. Tanner gently stroked my hair.
“Uh since about I don’t know. I got a couple this morning, but they got worse about two hours ago.” Tanner closed his eyes and pressed his lips to my head.
“Has your water broken?” She asked as another nurse brought over a wheelchair. I nodded.
“It broke about an hour ago then the pain got so much worse.” I nodded as the pain started again. “Ow, ow, ow, ow, ow, ow Tanner it hurts. It hurts so much.” I cried as another contraction rocked my body.
“I know baby. We are here now; they’re going to help you know Baby.” He said stroking my knuckles with his thumb. I couldn’t help but whimper in pain.
“I need to know how long apart your contractions are.” She rolled me past a ‘Labor and Delivery’ sign. She rolled me into room 4.
“I don’t know but not too far cause they hurt so much.” I cried out again as another nurse came in.
“Okay I need you to change into this and lay on the bed while I get your doctor.” I nodded as Tanner helped me get undressed into the dressing gown. We had to stop twice just to get it on and tied. I held onto him as I screamed.
“Almost done Ry, come on lay down.” He laid me down pulling the blanket up to my waist. He put his hand on my belly and rubbed it as it tightened again.
“Just think Ry, our babies are almost here. Just a little bit longer.” He whispered into my ear pressing his lips to mine. Almost here. There almost here………
