"Mommy...Mommy!Mommy please help us!Help us mommy!We're all alone"I heard the screaming of little children though I didn't know where it came from but it felt like they were in grave danger and I just couldn't stand there and do nothing.I have to help them!I have to!"
"Hang on!I'm coming you guys!"I said panting heavily as I ran through the narrow path.
"Trish!"a voice spoke out gripping me.I couldn't see his face but his grip was so strong and I couldn't go any further.
"Am I in hell?"I groaned in pains swinging my eyes open as I caught glimpse of Phil whose hands were on me.
"Heh!No silly!You're in the hospital.Gosh!You scared us back there hon"Sophie said hugging me tight.
"Soph?Ph-Phil!H-how long have I being here?"I said getting up weakly.
"Just take it easy.The doctor said you needn't stress yourself much"
"Take it easy?!"I asked confused.
"What happened to me and why the hell do I have these on me?"I asked peering down on the rubber strips that were attached to my wrist.
"Oh gosh!Phil!Phil are you alright?"I said panic-stricken as memories of the other day came crowding my mind in bits.
"My child...Yes!My child!I-is he..."I said with fright.
"Yes!Our child is perfectly fine Trish"he smiled caressing my hands softly.
"At least hearing that word "our" felt relieving"
"Thank goodness"I said heaving a sigh of relief as I laid back down.
"Well,what about James?Is he d-dead?"
"Oh,you mean that riff raff?"Soph cut in angrily.
"You needn't worry about him.He's where he won't bother you guys anymore"
"How'd you mean?"
"Well,my dad had him and his gangs run over the minute Phil informed me of what took place.Good thing Phil was there.You'd have probably being dead by now"she said c*ressing my hair.
"So,you mean they've been locked up?"I asked with surprise.
"Yup!So shh.Enough talking now.You don't want to get my little bun all worked up in there.He's had enough stress for one day"she teased adjusting the pillow for me.
"And don't you dare do that again,you"she scolded palyfully hugging me again.
"Gosh!You scared the hell out of me.I thought I'd lost you"
"You got Phil worried too,right douche bag?"she teased poking his arms.
"Uh-huh!I'm sorry Trish.I'm really sorry for everything.I never should have pushed you away like that.You don't know how much I missed you those times"he said hugging me gently.
"Aww,I missed you too and I'm sorry either.I never should have kept the truth from you.It's all my fault"
"No,it isn't.I'm just glad you're okay now"
I'll leave you two lovebirds now.Oopsie!"She giggled giving me a call me sign as she went outside.
"Oh!"we both laughed entangling from each other.
"I love you Phil"
"I love you too Trish"he said happily kissing me on my lips.I won't say I didn't miss that heh.That certainly went well,didn't it?"
"Trish,you sure you're gonna be okay with us leaving you all alone?I'm starting to get worried already.What if something happens while we're gone?"
"Oh,nothing will Soph!You do worry yourself so much,you know?Look,I'm perfectly fine"I said placing my hands on my belly that was a little big now.
"She's right sis!You worry so much"Daph spoke out folding up the remaining clothes into her bag.
"But seriously Trish,you can't be all alone on christmas.What'd you think mum and dad will say if they find out you're not coming home?Don't you think it'll look suspicious?And why haven't you told them yet?It's being three months now"she continued putting her hands akimbo.
"Oh,don't look at me.I'm just waiting for the right time to come"
"The right time?"Daphne cut in staring at me like I'm some weirdo.
"Soph can you hear her?"
"Ugh!Look Trish,you can't hide it from them anymore.They're your parents for crying out loud.You really need to tell them before someone else does"
"Oh,what do you want me to say?Hmm,let's see....Hi mum!Hi dad!Phil got me pregnant and now I've got three mini Mac-Kennys crawling inside of me.Seriously?"
"Tell me about it!"Daph grinned.
The guy really tried.Three at once.What a goal!"she teased flaring her hands in the air.
"Oh,do shut up Daph.The babies are hearing"Soph chipped in turning back to me.
"We just want the best for you Trish.Just tell them okay?You can't hide it forever hon"
"Oh,fine!I will.Trust me!"I smiled faintly.
"Good!That's what I want to hear"
"D!you done packing?I bet dad's outside already.We don't wanna keep him waiting"she said in some kind hottie telenovela accent.
"Yeah!"she said zipping her box.
"We out then!Take care B"they said hugging me.
"Ow!You guys are so squeezing me.I can hardly breathe"I said jokingly trying to wiggle free.
"Haha!We do hate we won't be able to see you till next week.Are you sure you'll be alright?"
"Oh,you guys!It's only for a week.I'm not going anywhere,you know?"
"Well,yeah?We'll see you when we get back then"they said dragging their luggages behind.
"Mmm-hmm!I love you guys"
"Byeeee"they waved back shutting the door behind them.
"Ooof!So you guys are awake.How sweet!"I said feeling my belly gently as my phone rang from the cane rack.
"Ooh...Daddy's calling"I said with ecstatically as I quickly answered.
"Hi honey.What's the occasion?"
"Mmm,let me see!There.There's you!There's my babies and hmm,what else am I leaving out?"
"You?!"I chuckled softly.
"Ah-hah!Yes!The top dog!"
"Oh,shut up.You're so arrogant"I chuckled again.
Where are you anyway?You're still with grams?"
"Hold on!You're back already?I thought you won't be coming back till next week?"
"Ha!And miss my chance of being with you?No way!"
"Oooh,goody"I said blushing hard.
"Baby,you should see me now.I popped this week"I laughed.If only dad will laugh over that too.
"I see!Put on an Elfie hat then and head down to the North Pole.I bet santa's waiting for you there"he teased.
"Ugh!You're so annoying.At least you're not the one carrying three hefty babies inside of you"
"Awe!Tell me about it!"
"Hang on.Are you.."
"Ho-ho-ho-ho-ho!Merry Christmas Mrs Clause"he rang out swinging the door wide open.
"Phil!"I exclaimed with amazement
OMG!How did you?"
"It's a Christmas miracle"he smirked pulling me into his arms
"I missed you and my,what do we have here?"he said placing his right ear on my belly.
"Oh,stop!That tickles"I giggled.
"Shh!I can hear them"
"Well,what did they say?"I asked with interest.
"They said daddy's so handsome and mommy's all puffier now"
"Awe!Not fair"I said pretending to be jealous.
"Oh,you!Mmm"he said kissing me deeply.
"Gosh!I so missed this"I said kissing him right back.
"Hmm!I wonder what's in there"I said taking a peek in the grocery bag he had in his hands.
"Oh,this?Here!Take a look"he said handing it off.
And also this"
"Burgers!Yay!Gimme...gimme!"I yelled excitedly snatching the burgers from him.
"Mmmm!I love you"I said with enthusiasm taking the burger out of it's wrapper carefully.
"Mmm-hmm!I love you too"
"Humph!I wasn't talking to you genius"I said giving him a smirky face.
"Heh!Just kidding.I love you more"I said letting go of the burger as I hung my arms around him.
"Ooo"I coughed out.
"They just kicked"
"Mmm-hmm!Ooo,now there's baby B!Ooo...and baby C"I said teasingly running my hands on my belly.
"Really?You can tell them apart?"
"Uh-huh!I'm their mother.Come!Feel them"I said placing his hands on my bare belly.
"Whoa!We've got ninjas in there"
"Haha!You can say that again.I hope they're not as arrogant as you too"
"Oh,I do wish that"He said pinching my cheeks.
"Oh,shh!"I signalled to him seeing my mum's name pop up.
"Hey mum.What's kicking?"I said trying to act all normal.
"What's kicking is that I'm missing my baby.Is anything happening over there baby?Why don't you want to come home for Christmas?Are you sick?"
"Uh,no mum"I said nervously.
"I just have some projects to tend to"
"Hmm,that's it?Just come home baby.We're missing you.Or do you want us to come pick you up?"
"N-No!That won't be necessary.I'll be fine"I said trying to hold back my tears.
"Yeah!I promise.I need to go now mum.I love you very much"I said hurriedly.
"I love you most baby.Come home soon,all right?Your dad and I are waiting for you"
"Whoo!Trish we can't hide this anymore"Phil spoke up taking my hands.
"I know bu..."
"You're scared it'll break her heart.I never should have gotten you into this mess in the first place"he said turning his face away.
"Don't say that.I'm really happy that've got you and these babies here.If you want to blame anyone,blame me.I love you Phil and I'm ready to face anything with you.You just have to convince me that you are too"
"Believe me,I am!I can't let you off just like that.You mean so much to me"he said kissing me softly.
"I love you very much"
"I love you too.We'll go see them tomorrow all right?"
"Well,okay but for now i need to sleep and you need to rest too.Are you hungry?"
"Not yet!I just want to watch you sleep"
"All right Superman"I said placing my head on his chest as I dozed right off with my body all cuddled up in his arms.
"Oh,I'm never getting this feelings off me.Giggles!".
