……………. Dante squeezed my hand as we sat in the Doctor’s office waiting for him to come and see us. I bounced my foot nervously as the tick of the clock on the wall seemed to be more like a sonic boom marking the passing of the minutes.


“You didn’t sleep much last night did you?” Dante asked


“No…I’m scared” he put his arm round my and hugged me to him “What man wants a wife that can’t give him kids?”


‘Don’t okay… I want you kids or not, Evie I love you and with everything you’ve been through I’d rather have one hell of a long life with you than put you at risk” I put my head on his shoulder. He kissed the top of my head “I love you”


“I love you too” the door opened and the doctor walked in.


“Good Morning” he sat behind his desk “So looking at your charts you got married”


“Yes we did” I smiled “almost a month ago”


“We congratulations”


“Look I don’t mean to be rude but I’m stressing like there is no tomorrow about this appointment” I held out my hands


“Of course” he nodded “Since the last miscarriage your blood test have come back better and better each month” he looked over the top of his glasses “Have you been taking things easy like we suggested?”


“Kind of… we had some down time before the wedding and then it was back to work last week and it was a little stressful I guess” I glanced at Dante who had his tense poker face on


“Hmmm” the doctor frowned


“We don’t like Hmm’s” I gripped Dante’s hand


“When was your last Period?” he looked at me


“Just after the miscarriage” I shrugged “You warned me things might not be right for a while” Dante leant forward




“Well you have some indications in the results from your blood test this morning that could be indicating that you maybe are pregnant” I felt my jaw go slack “Let me go see if the Ultrasound suite is free and we can get a better idea” he pushed back from the desk. My heart started pounding a million miles a minute


“Oh god I feel sick” Dante hung his head and rubbed the back of his neck


“Dante” I swatted him


“No I mean this is amazing, but we’ve lost two pregnancies already” he looked at me the color was drained from his face “I’m the one that is scared now” the door opened again and the doctor came in


“Alright they are ready for you in the room next door… And Evie don’t over stress right now until we found out more” I nodded and stood up with Dante following me. His fingers linked with mine as I went through the process of the ultra sound that in previous times had shown I’d lost a baby. She didn’t say anything and clicked with the mouse as she did things on the screen. She wiped my stomach and smiled at me


“Okay the doctor has the results Mrs. Croft if the two of you would like to go back into his office”


“Is everything alright? Dante asked as I sat up and swung my feet down


‘Like I said the doctor has your results and he should tell you” she pushed back the rolling stool she was sitting on


“D come on” I held his hand. I knocked on the door and pushed it open the doctor was in there pouring over his tablet.


“Well okay I think you both need to come and sit down” he took off his glasses I felt the lump in my throat as we sat down.


“Okay so it has been five months since the miscarriage” we both nodded “and I’m taking you are still not using birth control”


“No we’re not” Dante shook his head


“Well you must have been doing something right because you are four months pregnant, the baby is small that is why you don’t look any different but it has a strong heartbeat and everything is developing perfectly” I just sat blinking at him “If you have gotten this far and things are looking this good then I’m pretty sure that you will be able to go to term”


“Er… I… We…” Dante started and then stopped


“Because I’m classing you as high risk I went to see you every week to make sure things are going well and we keep it that way” he smiled


“Why haven’t I had signs?” I asked trying to wrap my head round it all


“Not all women do, and with your cycle as messed up as it was for you not to notice about your periods” He smiled at me “Congratulations to you both”


“So we’re defiantly pregnant?” Dante said a smile breaking out on his face


“Would you like to see the picture” The doctor handed over a file Dante took it and opened it, his breath caught in his throat making me look at him I moved back in the seat to look at the pictures with him. In front of us was a 3-d ultrasound of a perfect baby, I watched the picture blur before my eyes and tears slid down my cheeks “We also know the sex of it” we both looked at him and then at each other


“What is it?” we both laughed at the same time


“So you really want to know?” He laughed


“Please” Dante was literally pleading with him


“Alright, well you’re going to be having a little girl” Dante’s head fell into his hands and he broke down” I looked at him and wrapped my arms round him “I’ll let the two of you have a few minutes” the doctor walked out


“Dante…” he looked at me and smiled tears filled his eyes “You’re worrying me”


“No” he shook his head “No worrying it’s not good for you… we’re going to have a little girl… I love Luca with all I have but I want to have that specially little girl” I touched the side of  his face “Oh God Evie” he stood up and pulled me to my feet “I love you so much ad we’re going to make everything perfect so that this little girl is our world”


This was it, this was the thing we had wanted more and more in the past few months and now we were so close, even with everything we had to do nothing was going to make this one go wrong. We had Kain and Meg safe for now and if Dante and Egan had their way Kain would be a permanent fixture in the family. Megan had already proved her worth with what she had done for Tricia, I had a feeling she was going to make a welcome girl in the fold……………..

This is a wonderful end to this chapter of the story Kirk, it's an ending that can always be unclosed :) I really love this realm of characters and I know you will get inspiration in the future, you always do

Perfect ending Kirst! Don't feel bad for ending a story. Eventually they all come to an end, and like Suze can always be unclosed. So happy for Dante and Evie. I can't imagine how far into hyper-protective mode he is going to go with her to ensure this baby makes it! And a talk about one protected little lady! Oh I am so happy!! Can't wait to see how you round out with Meg and Kain's story as well!!
