PhilipI stood up from the bed, gently tugging my sleeping wife off my chest as I heard the loud wails coming from the nursery.Not wanting to disturb her as I knew how tired she was, I picked a t-shirt from the wardrobe, slid on the flip flops by the bedside, and walked briskly towards the direction of the noise.The boys were awake. Nate was standing in his cot using the edge for support with a flushed face and using his plump little fingers to rub his eyes while Nick was sitting in his cot.I swiftly took Nate into my arms, patting his back and he held me tight. Nick started to wail louder this time.Sighing, I bent and took him into my other arm. They liked the competition. If I gave Nate attention, Nick would start to cry and Vice versa."Why didn't you wake me, Kenny?" I turned to see Dana walking into the room with sunken eyes."Cause I ca
BLESSINGSGiordana."Philip, help me with the breast pump please, from their bag," I called.After getting no reply for a while, I went to the living room to get it myself only to see the most refreshing scene.Philip was laying on his back on the three-seater couch, nodding off while the golden blonde-haired children lay on either side of his chest, sleeping peacefully with their father.Yes, they were Daddy's boys. They did all sorts of things with Philip and most times I was jealous. They were also very mischievous.I couldn't help but remember that day, eight months ago when I delivered my little bundles of joy. The pain and discomfort were intense, but it was all worth it in the end.Whenever I thought about it, I would gladly go through the pain again to birth such beautiful souls.When
THE LONG AWAITED ARRIVAL.Giordana."Please turn to the left for an enema," a dark-skinned nurse said. I had already changed into a light green hospital gown.Philip was holding my hands as the nurse came in. I signaled for him to leave the room. He was reluctant until I nudged him again before he finally agreed."This will be uncomfortable, try to hold it in for at least five minutes."I nodded and lay on my side then she inserted it. It truly felt uncomfortable as she said.It wasn't up to two minutes when I stumbled to the restroom to free my bowels. Philip was already in the room when I got back, then I was told it was time to be shaved.I laid on the bed with my back and a thick blanket was draped over my stomach down to my legs which were propped on either side of the bed.How embarrassing it was to have someone else
BEAUTIFUL BUT TRAGIC.Philip.I stared at the sleeping form of my wife, brushing away the strands of hair that covered her face to get a better view.Her eyes were sunken, her nose was blotched and there were frown lines on her forehead.I felt a pang in my heart because of the way the pregnancy was taking a toll on her. Most nights she couldn't sleep.She would cry so much from the pain she was feeling. Her back, her legs, her waist, and even her ribs.We visited the hospital and we were told that it was as a result of the movement of the babies.I wished the babies would just come out so that she could be free from the pain."Kenny? Why aren't you asleep?" I heard her raspy voice and focused my attention on her."I'm not sleepy, I want to watch you sleep," I replied with a smile.
FALLING INTO PLACEGiordana."One minute," was the reply I got.Shortly after, the door was opened and I came face to face with Mikey.His face was flushed and his crystal blue eyes were a shade darker."Can I come in?" He nodded and I stepped into the room.I marveled at how arranged it was. There was a bookshelf that was stacked neatly at one corner, then the bed was laid with ivory sheets and a patterned coffee brown comforter."Can I sit?" I turned to face him when I asked. He nodded again.I patted the space beside me and he sat."So... I've never seen you this angry. Care to share? I should at least know what's bothering my brother, right?"He let out a sigh, stroking his light stubble."Just, normal issues. Relationships and stuff.""Expatiate.""Okay." He heaved another sigh. "I kinda... You see... your friend, Marla... She's Uhm..."I cocked a brow at the mention of her name. Mar
HAPPY.Giordana.With my eyes still closed, I tried to move towards the source of warmth that had me enveloped throughout the night, only to feel a cold surface.I opened my eyes and scanned the room for him but he was not in.I attempted to sit up on the bed, clutching the comforter to my bare body but my bump was an obstacle.Letting out a frustrated groan, I lay back on the bed, feeling my tears threatening to spill.Did Philip leave? He probably didn't like my performance or something?Of course, who would sleep with a heavily pregnant woman and enjoy it?Did I forgive him too easily? I confessed my love for him. How much more gullible can I be?The door to the room was pushed open, interrupting my thoughts."Babe, I prepared breakfast for you, but first you'll have to brush your teeth a
THE PASTGiordana.An aching head and body were not what I planned to wake up to, however, what should I have expected when my night was for crying instead of sleeping like normal people?My friends left after consoling me, while Philip was nowhere to be found. I was already getting anxious but I calmed a bit when he came back. I honestly thought he left for good.I was curious about the plaster on his face but I hadn't asked about it yet.Two weeks and none of them had brought up the issue until today.After the meeting, I tried to drag myself to the staircase but walking alone was proving to be a hard task gradually.My steps were halted when I heard a crack sound behind me. I turned to meet the ashen face of Philip.I have never seen him so pale before. This was a first.He looked like a sta
THE CALLPhilip."You bastard!" Another punch was swung at my already bruised and swollen face."How could you do such a thing, Philip?" Drew pulled me by the collar of my shirt, throwing another punch.The baby shower was not meant to end the way it did, but it did because of my stupidity. I had been thinking of how to get Dana's mind off the divorce, and Rob suggested I propose to her in a form of renewing our vows.I bought the idea- the biggest mistake I made. It might have escaped my mind that no one would want a horrible man like me, who was his carbon copy, both physically and character-wise.Hearing everything from Dana herself was just what I needed to realize my folly. After hurting her so badly, I still wanted her. How much more wicked could I be?It had been nearly an hour since I discovered that everyone heard I and Da
PARTY- TURNED- DISASTERGiordana.I was in a state of shock. Everyone was awaiting my reply, meanwhile, I was getting angrier and angrier by the minute.
