I've decied to be super duper nice and update another chapter, thought you'd love me for it and blah blah you can thank me later and i'm thinking another 2 chapters or so before the BiG
I smiled, my mom had a way to be the best advice giver without being judgmental.
“Mom, your the best.” I gave her a big huge, and then I heard the door. I sighed and pulled away.
“I think Sara is here.” I nodded in agreement and went to the door with my mom following me. I pulled down my shirt and opened the door with a smile on my face, there in the door was Sara. Her black hair tied up in a messy bun with a red sweater stretching over her tiny stomach.
“Ella!” Sara said, happily and pulled me into a hug. Her stomach making it hard to hug her back, but I did somehow managed it.
“Sara, how have you been feeling sweetie?” She pulled back with a big smile on her face.
“Very good, I tell you details later.” I grinned and kissed her forehead, she had always been a sister to me, we grew up together and my bother had fallen in love with her, reasonable I thought. Since she was a beautiful woman, smart and very sweet. Who couldn’t love her? I loved her, like my twin. “Hi mom.” Sara said, Jovi laughed and pulled Sara into a hug as well.
Trent came from the kitchen holding Dayton he looked at Sara appreciatively and looked back at me. *God bless him.*
“Little bud here ate all his oatmeal, but he’s quite dirty after such an adventure.” I looked at Dayton intently and gasped. His face was smeared with his food and some of it was even in his hair. He giggled and licked his face.
“Dayton Mackenzie Makyla, you are a sight to behold.” Trent chuckled, ruffing his hair a bit.
“He’s just having fun playing with you food, weren’t yea little guy?”
“Ya. Ta.” Sara looked Trent up and down and I think she drooled a bit.
“Ella where in the world did you find this hunk?” I rolled my eyes at Sara blunt nature. Trent’s face twisted in amusement.
“Sara for gods sakes your pregnant!” Sara laughed.
“And? He hot.”
“Thats the answer to everything to you, huh?”
“Well, of course.” I shook my head and closed the door so the warmth wouldn’t leave the house. Trent walked up to Sara and held out his hand.
“Trenton Vantenio, it’s nice to met you Sara. And she didn’t find me I found my Ella, isn’t that right butterfly?”
“The jest of it.” Sara took Trent’s hand and shook it.
“It’s nice to met you to Trenton, I see you and my little brother in law get along just fine. How long have you and Ella been going out?”
“About a year, Day and I are best buds right Dayton?”
“Ya.” Dayton said agreeing. Sara smiled and looked back at me.
“Why didn’t you tell me you were going out with someone?” I blushed hating that I had to lie to my best friend.
“I don’t know.” I shrugged my shoulders. “I guess it just hasn’t gotten real serious till recently.” I went over to Trent, and held my arms out to Dayton he giggled and looked back and forth between me and Trent before he decided that he wanted to switch. He retched over to me and I picked him up.
Mom smiled at me and looked at Dayton shaking her head.
“He’s not the only one who use to wipe his food on his face, if I remember a certain girl in this room used to do that too.” I blushed bright red.
“Mom. We so do not need to go into that.” Trent chuckled, picking a piece of hair off and away from my face.
“Is my butterfly embarrassed? There just baby picture sweetie, not a big deal.”
“Yes, it is. You don’t need to know what a weird child I was.”
“I’m sure it leads to the fact that I’ve never met another like you, and I’d like to see that.” I hid my face behind my hair and shook my head. Trent raised his eyebrow at me and I sighed.
“Fine, but don’t say I didn’t warn you. Mom can you get the book? I’m gonna clean Day’s face.” I walked into the kitchen, and grabbed a washcloth wiping a struggling infant was hard. After I had accomplished that I walked back into the living room preparing for the worst.
They were sitting by the fire and in a circle on the floor using pillows for seats, they were passing around the baby book. I sat down next to Trent and Dayton crawled off my lap and around our small circle. The book was passed to Trent and he started chuckling. I looked over his shoulder and groaned.
I was just about eighteen months with a bowl of spaghetti over my head and sauce dripping down my face.
“MOM. You had to show him that picture didn’t you?” My mother being herself just laughed at me and flipped the page to where I was about two years old and sneaking out of my crib all by myself.
“So your ninja baby, huh?” Trent asked, he looked at my face and sighed. He gave me a kiss on my nose.
“Babe I think that the cutest baby picture I’ve ever seen. Trust me.” I twitched my nose at him, annoyed.
“Such a moody creature Ella.” Sara said giggling under her breathe. “You should see a picture when she was ten.” My mouth dropped open, *OH anything, but THAT!*
Sara grabbed the picture book quick and flipped through it and thrusted it to Trent before I could do anything.
“That’s so not fair Sara I can’t tackle you and wrestle for the book.” Sara rolled her eyes. Trent studied the picture intently before he turned back to me.
“Who is this in the picture?” He asked genuinely confused. I looked at the picture and groaned out loud. I was in the picture, I had been the first girl ever enrolled in boy scouts. Girl scouts just sell cookie and crap. I was there in the uniform with my hair cut to just below my ears, my face showing pride as I had passed carving with fineness and with the top grade.
“That’s me Trent, before I became more girl like.” I had my face lit up in a smile and if the picture couldn’t get any worse it did. I had on braces.
“So butterflies a reformed tomboy?” I blushed and nodded. “Cute.” My face twisted in annoyance and Dayton decided that I needed a hug so he giggled and stood up on shaky legs before barreling over to me and landing hands down in my lap. He cried out and tears streamed down his face.
“Oh Dayton.” Mom sighed, he hiccuped and started crying in earnest. I lifted him to my chest and tried to calm him down by rocking him a bit and cooing in his ear. It didn’t seem to help.
“Mom, I think he needs you.” Dayton cried harder and when I handed him to mom he started to calm down a bit. She shushed in his ear and wiped his tears away. His face was bright red, and his nose dripping. Mom pulled out a tissue from her pocket and wiped his nose. He quieted down and snuggled in her arms.
“I think he cut his nap a bit short, he’s asleep now.” I nodded in agreement. Trent looked at me and gave me a look saying ‘It’s ok, you don’t need to look so unhappy baby’s need their mom. You didn’t do anything wrong.’ But it was so clear he may have been saying it in my head.
*I feel useless sometimes, that I can’t comfort him.*
‘Well all baby’s can’t just be comforted by their older siblings no matter how good they are at it. You did very well, your just not mommy.’
*That’s what I hate, I can’t do everything.*
‘You not suppose to be able to, once we have a baby it will be different.’ His soothing voice in my head like he was talking to me out loud was enough to make me feel much better. I scooted to him and snuggled to his side. He lifted his arm up and wrapped it around my shoulders.
“So Ella, what are you doing now in school?” Sara’s question startled me out of my zone.
“Oh well I’m learning to work with another person, like in surgery and stuff. We work on this may be gross but an already dead person so we don’t mess up and kill someone I suppose.” I wanted Trent’s arms me so I crawled into his lap without a complaint voiced from him. “I’m learning how to tell from a heart attack and a lung failure. And more medical things that need surgery. I’ve been very busy with home work and going out sometimes trying to balance my social life and my schooling.”
“Been on any good dates lately?” I thought back to the club and wanted to be like hell no, but I said.
“Not any at all I’ve been way to busy. I have been staying in and chilling most of the time.”
“Are you still living at the dorms?” Sara asked with a look on her face.
“Eh, kinda.” Sara looked suspicious.
“What is that suppose to mean, Ella?”
“I’ve spent a few nights at Trent’s house lately.” I said, embarrassed. My moms faced glowed in excitement and Sara’s was smug.
