Don’t Let Me Let You Go

56: This Is A Good Thing

Resting his hand against the warm skin of Viola’s stomach, Iker felt a small smile tug at the corner of his mouth, a smile that he hadn’t been able to move in days. He knew that it would happen one day, even despite Viola’s initial hesitations, he knew that they would have a baby eventually, but the idea that it was happening was one that he couldn’t get out of his head, even if Viola had insisted that they not make a fuss, he couldn’t seem to stop himself thinking about it. Shifting his thumb a little, he brushed the small bump before he tossed onto his side, ducking down to kiss the skin softly.

“You know, you really don’t have to do that every morning” Viola mumbled as she stirred a little.

Iker smiled a little and shuffled back up the bed, resting beside Viola who greeted him with a soft smile. “I am merely saying good morning to our bump” he mused happily.

“You’ve done it every day for the last week” Viola countered “I think they’ve got the hint that you’re happy” she added, offering him a small grin. She found it adorable, the way that Iker had taken to fussing over the barely noticeable bump on her stomach, and she doubted that she would tire of watching it. It was by far the sweetest she had seen him be.

Iker shook his head. “Can you blame me for being a little excited?” he noted as he brushed his thumb over her stomach again “It’s a pretty big deal” he added.

“It is a pretty big deal” Viola agreed “And I like that you’re excited. You seem to be over the moon” she added as she cuddled into her pillow a little more. They had a little while, with a midwife appointment scheduled for mid-morning, Iker had the morning away from training, and it afforded them a little time to relax, something which was welcome to Viola who had already been out of bed once that morning to throw up.

Iker smiled. “Over the moon might be an understatement” he noted, his thumb still stroking across her stomach.

“We’ve still got a way to go” Viola pointed out “Are you going to be like this the entire time?” she added, a small grin playing at the corner of her mouth.

Iker laughed. “You know you wouldn’t have me any other way” he noted.

Viola shrugged, something which made him shake his head, moving to kiss the side of her head. “You know you wouldn’t” he murmured as he kissed down the side of her face, nipping at her jaw lightly “You know you think I am great” he added, his fingers lightly tickling her side.

Viola squeaked at the contact and attempted to roll away from him, only for Iker to stop her. “Say it” he mused.

“What?” Viola squeaked, trying to stifle her giggles.

“Tell me how great you think I am” he teased.

“Iker” Viola protested.

“Say it” Iker mused “Say it and I will let you get up” he added, kissing the side of her nose.

“Fine” Viola conceded “You’re an amazing boyfriend, you’re sweet, romantic, thoughtful, and I know that when this baby comes along, you’re going to be great at that too” she insisted.

Iker smiled a little at her words before he pulled away from her a little, allowing her to sit up. “You really think I am going to be good at this?” he mused as he watched her fix her shirt.

Viola nodded her head. “You’ll be the best” she noted before she padded out of the room, leaving him smiling behind her.

“Miss Garcia, I am Vanessa and I am going to be your midwife” the midwife mused as she looked over Viola’s notes, offering the blonde a small smile. She could see that she was unsure, since she had sat down, Viola hadn’t stopped messing with the front of her sweater, and Vanessa wanted to reassure her. From the looks of the test results that sat in her file, everything was looking promising for the blonde woman.

“It’s nice to meet you” Viola murmured.

“We’ve had the results of your blood tests and we’re happy with them. I’d like to refer you to a doctor who will check up on you, but I can do an ultrasound now to try and date your pregnancy as well as answer any questions the two of you might have. Does that sound alright?” Vanessa posed.

Viola nodded her head quietly before Iker stretched his hand out, squeezing hers which messed with the front of her sweater. “It’s going to be fine” he murmured gently.

“You don’t know that” Viola countered.

Iker shook his head. “You need to stop worrying so much. This is a good thing, Lala” he assured her gently before he pressed a kiss to the side of her head, helping her up onto the examination bed.

Viola offered him a slightly unsure look before she laid down, allowing Vanessa to push the front of her shirt up. “This will be cool, Ok, Viola?” the midwife posed.

Viola nodded a little before she grimaced, not liking the sensation of the cool gel on her stomach.

Iker smiled a little at the expression on her face and ducked down, kissing the top of her head. “You’re OK” he enthused as he watched Vanessa brush the ultrasound wand over Viola’s stomach.

Viola watched the movement too before she flicked her attention to the screen, her blue eyes widening a little at the sight of the small blob which filled it. “Iker” she squeaked.

“Hm?” the keeper hummed.

“Look” she whispered “That’s our…our blob” she spluttered, her blue eyes a little tearful.

Iker marvelled a little at the screen before he nodded. “It is” he murmured.

“It’s looks as though you’re a little way a long, Viola” Vanessa noted gently “From the size, I would estimate 14 or 15 weeks, which is the second trimester” she explained softly.

Viola nodded her head briefly before the soft thumping of the baby’s heartbeat filled the air, a sound that made Viola sniffle a little.

“I am going to set you up a couple of appointments, one with a doctor to ensure that you’re alright, Viola, and one with me for a couple weeks’ time so that I can check on the progress of your pregnancy. Does that sound alright?” she posed.

“It’s fine” Iker mused, not missing the fact that Viola was quietly sniffling to herself.

“I’ll get you a couple of copies of the picture and come back with those appointment times. Congratulations” Vanessa enthused before she padded out of the room, affording Iker the chance to sit beside his girlfriend, his hand gently brushing away the tears from her eyes.

“You Ok?” he posed softly.

Viola sniffled a little, but nodded her head, a small smile pulling at the corner of her mouth. “We’re going to have a baby” she murmured gently.

Iker nodded his head gently as he set his hand over her slight bump. “We are” he confirmed.
