Okay guys this is the final chapter of the unexpected series, I hope you enjoy it. I have loved working on this story and enjoy your comments.
“Just as I thought?” Sara was still in a state of panic as the Doctor examined her, “Your cervix is dilated at four already.” Sara’s body went numb with fear.
“What does that mean?” it was too early for the baby to be here, her due date wasn’t for another three weeks, “Will she be okay?”
“I am sure everything will be okay, we need to monitor the baby’s heartbeat. You have been in labor for many hours it seems and the strain could be causing stress.” That didn’t help Sara’s inner turmoil and she could feel her mouth go dry. The doctor must have sensed Sara’s stress and gave her hand a reassuring squeeze, “Sara it will be okay, the stress of what happened to Bryce probably brought on the labor. I have delivered many babies this early and nothing has been wrong, it’s very common.” She nodded dumbly and allowed the nurse to hook her up to a machine.
“I will be back in a minute to check on you.”
“Are you okay sweetie?” Sara looked up to see Susan come into the room.
“The baby is coming.” Was all she could manage to get out. Susan’s weathered face lit up with surprise and excitement, “Lord almighty.” She came to Sara’s side and took her hand in hers.
“Aren’t you happy?”
“She is too early.” Susan laughed, “Lord child, let me let you in on something. Bryce came this early too, the Doctor told me I was right on time but Bryce being one to surprise us all made his appearance three weeks early.” Sara felt a little better and found herself smiling at Susan’s reaction.
“He was?” Susan nodded and pushed the hair back out of Sara’s eyes, “Yes Ma’am.” Sara grimaced as a sharp pain bit into the lower part of her back and she found herself gasping.
“Just breathe honey, you’re having a contraction.” Sara began to breathe taking in long breaths and expelling them as calmly as she could, she had not taken one class of Lamaze and was surprised that that she could breathe this naturally. Susan squeezed her hand kept her eyes on the monitor that was spiking and finally coming back down, “Almost there darling.” Once the pain abated she leaned back against the pillow and took a small breath, the pain was still there but not as strong as it had just been. In the moment of clarity she suddenly remembered Bryce, “Oh god Susan how is Bryce?”
“He is fine baby, was sleeping last time I checked in. You just need to worry about relaxing.”
He was going to miss the birth of his child; she knew he would be devastated. They had known he would miss the baby’s birth but she hadn’t known it would be due to the fact he was lying in a hospital bed.
“Get ready baby girl here comes another contraction.” Sara grabbed at the bed as another painful tremor ran down her backside and around to her abdomen. The pain was intensifying and her breath came out in labored pants as she fought to control her breathing through the contraction. She felt the baby kick against her belly button and it was all the motivation to calm down and just breathe through the intense pain.
“Good job Sara, oh you’re doing so great.” The pain began to subside and nodded as she let go of the sheet and her knuckles returned to their normal color.
“How’s everything going in here?” both women looked up at the same time as the Doctor entered the room and began to check the monitor as well as Sara and the baby’s heartbeat.
“Is everything okay?”
“Actually everything looks great, both yours and the baby’s heartbeat look great. You’re dilating the way you need to and by the look of it this baby will be here within the next couple hours.”
That frightened and excited Sara to know that in two short hours she would be holding her baby girl in her arms, “Do you need anything?”
“Some ice and could you tell my husband that Sara is in labor?” the Doctor nodded and gave Susan a smile, “I will inform him right away as for the ice I will have a nurse bring her some now.” Sara was grateful for Susan, without her she wouldn’t be this calm and collected. In the short time she had known Susan she had been more of a mother to her than her own had been in the eighteen years she had lived with her.
“Thank you Susan.” Susan gave her a questioning look, “For what sweetie?”
“For being here with me, you didn’t have to accept me. Here I was some strange woman you had never met living with your son and pregnant while being unwed yet you took me in as if you had known me for years and have more of mother to me than my own.” Susan scoffed yet contained her smile, “Oh Sara, you don’t have to thank me. I knew you were the perfect woman for my boy the minute I saw how he looked at you.” Sara smiled despite the fact her pain was growing, “Still all the same.”
At that moment a loud commotion came from outside the room and Bryce’s voice could be heard over the din of falling objects, “I don’t give a damn about procedures, and if you don’t let me in that room I will personally beat the shit out you.” Sara had never known Bryce to use that foul of language in her whole time of being around him.
“What in tarnation?” Susan released Sara’s hand long enough to investigate as Bryce came barreling in the room dressed in a plain T-shirt and jeans yet his feet were bare.
“Think they can keep me in that damn bed while my wife is in labor.”
“Bryce?” Sara asked bewildered that he was out of bed, he came next to her and clasped her hand in his own.
“Yeah baby I am here, I’m not going anywhere.”
“What about your wound?” he looked down at his bandage and shook his head, “Doesn’t matter, what matters is that I am here for you.” Her vision blurred from the tears that began to build on her lashes, now everything was perfect. It was in his eyes she remembered their first meeting, who would have thought that stormy night in a tiny café just off the interstate in Texas would have led to this. A loving family she had always dreamed of, soon a family of her own and Bryce. Her life had been missing something and he had been the missing piece to her life, the void in her heart had been filled by the support of a family who had taken her in and called her one of their own and by this beautiful man staring into her eyes as she went through the motions of bringing their daughter into this world. This baby would never want for anything, would never feel alone, never be afraid of its own father and neither would she anymore. Another pain rippled through her backside and she let out a tiny whelp of pain, Bryce’s eyes narrowed in worry.
“Can’t someone do something about this pain?” he turned his attention back on Sara and pushed her sweat slicked hair back from her eyes as the Doctor came in and examined Sara’s cervix.
“It seems Sara is fully dilated, it’s too late for an epidural. Sara I need you to push when you feel a contraction okay, the baby is ready to come out.” Sara nodded and adjusted herself on the pillow as Bryce held her hand in his enduring the force of her own squeezing his own, she felt another pain coming and she took a deep breath pushing through it, “That’s it Sara you’re doing beautifully.” The doctor said as she coaxed Sara through the process of pushing, “Come on baby you’re doing so great.” Sara nodded and looked at him, “Bryce the baby will be here soon.”
“I know baby I know.” She could see his love and his pride reflected in those deep blue depths she had come to love and cherish. Another pain alerted her it was time to push again, “Alright one more push Sara the baby is crowning.” Hearing her daughter was coming closer to being in her arms she felt a renewed strength and bared down pushing against the pain. With one final push she felt her stomach bottom out as if she was on a roller coaster and the pain subsided. Loud cries began to fill the room as Bryce let out a whoop of excitement and kissed Sara’s forehead as their daughter was lifted up for them to see, Sara’s tears fell down her face at the sight of her squalling daughter and then to Bryce who moved closer to his newborn child. On his face was a happiness Sara hadn’t seen since she had told him she would be his wife, “God Sara she is so beautiful.” He was in a state of awe.
“What are we going to name her?” he asked as the doctor put their baby into Bryce’s arms and he leaned in bringing him closer, Sara had been toying with names for some time and one kept winning out.
“Destiny, Destiny rose turner.” Bryce smiled understanding the meaning behind it for it had been destiny that brought them together. Bryce leaned in and kissed Sara and then he placed Destiny in her arms. As Sara stared into her baby girls vibrant blue eyes she knew that her life was where it should be. She would never let any harm come to her or Bryce. This was her family, for a woman who had never had a family she had made her own and she would do it better. Susan moved closer to the three and took a picture with tears of happiness shining in her eyes, it was than Sara was reminded both Susan and Bill were in the room.
“Would you like to hold her?”
“Is that even a question?” Sara laughed and allowed Susan to take the baby in her arms; looking back to Bryce she whispered I love you to him. He leaned down and kissed her lips, he had been robbed of wonderful woman and his first child all those years ago but now he was given a second chance. Fighting for Sara had been worth it.
“She is so cute.” Lydia exclaimed as she cradled Destiny close to her. Sara and Bryce looked on laughing at how protective Lydia seemed to be with the small infant who was snoozing away unaware she was the center of attention in the Turner household.
“I can’t believe Sara had the baby before I did.” Regina said as she ran her hand over her still pregnant belly, “At this rate I will never give birth.” Morgan laughed and rested his hand atop hers.
“Don’t worry Gina the baby will get here soon, he is just being stubborn like us Turner men are.”
Morgan’s comment had the Bryce and Bill laughing as they nodded in agreement, Destiny than let out a wail of protest. Sara came off the couch, “Aw don’t worry pretty baby.” She took her daughter into her arms and reached for a bottle next to her. Lydia seemed reluctant to let Destiny go but she did so the baby could eat. Bryce watched Sara take Destiny into her arms and place the bottle in her mouth as she crooned lovingly to their daughter. He felt his heart swell in pride at the sight of the two, “Little glutton.” He remarked as Destiny began to suckle the bottle greedily. Sara playfully swatted at him with her free hand and shook her head, “No she isn’t she is just hungry.” Susan chuckled watching her son with his own family and to herself sent god a silent thanks. She never thought Bryce would be the same after he had lost his first wife but here he was happier than ever. Her family was her life and it warmed her heart to see them all so happy.
Sara had just tucked Destiny into her bassinet when Bryce slipped into bed and pulled her against him, it was insane to think it had already been a few months since he had almost lost his life and Sara had given birth. Destiny was a beautiful baby who was growing every day and loved by everyone who came into contact with. He had to admit that she had him wrapped around every single tiny finger. Sara allowed him to pull her closer and turned in his arms so she was now facing him, she was smiling.
“What’s on your mind?” she asked him, he gave her a mischievous grin and slid his hands up her gown to the swell of her hip. Sara sucked a deep breath of air and felt goose bumps spread up her body. She didn’t have to get an answer to know what on his mind, “Bryce the baby just got to sleep.” She whispered as his fingers began to play with the sides of her breast. Her body was warming up from his feather light touches. In one swift motion he had rolled Sara underneath him as thunder rumbled outside and lighting lit up the room, for one brief moment he caught a glimpse of Sara and could see the desire shining in those whiskey depths. Sara pulled Bryce’s face to hers and kissed his lips passionately as she whispered against them, “Just like the night we met.” He closed his eyes remembering that first night they had made love to the turbulent storm that had matched their own tempo as he had discovered her body for the first time. He kissed her lips again softly as he caressed her face, “I don’t think I could ever forget that night.” As he kissed her more deeply he was lost in moment of their own storm. Her body was responding to his touches and kisses and she arched into him feeling his erection against her pelvis, she felt her heart speed up. Bryce let his hands trail down to between her legs where he found her wet and ready for him, he felt his manhood constrict and harden even more so. Sara moaned and he took that moment to let his tongue meld with hers. The storm was intensifying outside and lighting continued to light up the room giving him momentary glances of Sara’s reaction to his touch. He let one finger slip into her moist haven that was quaking in anticipation of what was to come, Sara’s body lifted off the bed and her legs spread to give him better access to her heat. His mouth covered a nipple and it hardened immediately under his tongue he nipped it lightly with his teeth as he let another finger dip inside her. Another moan came from Sara and let his fingers move with deftness inside her as her muscles contracted around his fingers. Sara was coming undone under Bryce’s torment over her body and she craved more, “Now Bryce.” She begged. Bryce didn’t need to be told again he covered her body with his own as he slid his manhood deep inside her folds. Sara cried out in ecstasy as she felt him deep inside her body moving with a tenderness that moved her to tears, she let her hands run along his spine as he thrust into her. Bryce than rolled so that she was on top of him, he let his hands cup both her breasts as he stared up at her loving the expressions that played across her face each time the lighting gave him a view of her face. He groaned as Sara moved against him with her breasts thrusts high. His toes curled and he gripped her thighs raising her up and down each time she moved, he could tell she was nearing her orgasm and he thrust faster into her feeling his own build. Sara’s movements became frantic and she began to pant heavily and he felt her beginning to tighten around the length of him. It was bringing him closer to his own climax in a hurry as she rode him at a quickened pace. Sara let out cry as she came undone and Bryce spilled himself deep inside her body, spent she collapsed against his chest breathing hard. He rubbed her back as he fought to gain his own breath, the storm outside seemed to letting up some. Sara leaned up slightly and smiled at Bryce as she said, “I love you.” He smiled and kissed her lips again, “And I love you Sara with all my heart.”
