“Rose, her name shall be Rose.” Edeline told her husband as he pushed her and the fetus inside her on their transportation and new home, a hospital bed. Six months ago Edeline and her husband, Herman, got kicked out of their house. Edeline was three months pregnant at the time. They both knew that at any time the baby could come and they were ready. Beside Edeline she had a bag that contained clothes, hair brush, and baby supplies. Under her in the basket were more bags that held more supplies. Blankets, water bottles- 24 to be exact- and some other items. Edeline and Herman had been use to this since a week or two after they got kicked out. If it wasn’t for Edeline’s doctor they wouldn’t have this bed that he snuck out of an operating room.

“That’s a lovely name, sweet heart.” Herman said. Inside he couldn’t breathe not from pushing the cart and his wife but the thought of having to deliver his own child with only a towel to bite on to sooth his wife from the pain shook him. He’s worked so hard to keep the tears inside and he’s been good at it to.

“Umm…ha…ha…owww!” Edeline cried. Herman reached for his wife’s hand and he knew it was time. He got the towel for her to bite on. When he came up his wife was shaking uncontrollably. He shoved the towel in her mouth and told her to push. So she did and blood sprayed everywhere.

“Just hold on!” Herman cried. He finally let the tears he was holding for six months explode out of him. He didn’t know what else to do so he asked her to push again. More blood.

“Come on one more time! Push for me! For Rose!” he shouted against his wife’s screams. She did and way more blood then the first two times. His wife fell silent and a long moan escaped her mouth. Herman reached to see if the baby was there and sure enough there was a tiny little body. Herman held Rose close to his chest. When he raised to show his wife their beautiful daughter her eyes were closed.

“Edeline, I know you’re tired but open your eyes to see our miracle.” He whispered.

No sound, no movement.

“Babe, wake up!” he screamed. Still no movement and no sound. Same for the baby.

 He shook his wife. Then he listened to her heart. Nothing. Then he checked the baby’s heart. Nothing. Herman had lost his wife and newborn in childbirth.
