We Could Be Something

125: It’s A Girl

Sparing a small yawn into his hand, Iker shifted slightly, trying not to disturb the baby which slept against his chest. It had been a little while, after Iker had arrived at the hospital, a few hours had passed, but since he had laid eyes on her for the first time, he hadn’t been able to stop admiring the newborn. She was small, everything about her was tiny and delicate, and Iker was in awe of her, even if hadn’t been in the room when she had been pushed into the world, he couldn’t quite believe that he had played a part in making something so small and delicate.

“Have you put her down since you got here?”

Iker, who was quietly watching the baby sleep, startled a little at the sound of Adriana’s voice before he lifted his head, offering her a small smile. “I thought about it” he noted softly “But then she fell asleep and I didn’t want to disturb her. She looks pretty comfortable, doesn’t she?” he added, his fingertips gently smoothing out the small wisps of blonde hair on the top of the baby’s head.

Adriana, who’d moved to pull a clean shirt out of the bag which sat at the end of the bed, offered him a soft look before she shook her head, carefully moving to sit down beside him. “She does look pretty happy” she mused, gently brushing the baby’s back “But you’re going to have to get some sleep eventually. You’ve been up all night” she added, peeking towards him gently. It had been a long night, after he had arrived at the hospital, Iker had barely closed his eyes for a second, and Adriana wanted to encourage him to take a break, even if it was only for a little while, she wanted him to relax a little.

Iker shook his head. “I’ll sleep when we get home” he noted softly “Right now, I just want to enjoy a couple of minutes with you and our new little girl before our relatives show up. Do you think that that is something we can do?” he posed, offering her an impish smile.

Adriana admired his smile for a second before she nodded her head, carefully moving to cuddle into his side. “You know” she mumbled, breaking the comfortable silence which had settled over them “We’re going to have to decide what it is we want to call her. I mean, bump is pretty cute, but we can’t call her that forever” she added, her fingers lightly adjusting the material baby grow that the newborn wore, something which made the little girl stir a little.

Iker watched her small movements for a couple of seconds before he shook his head, a small smile playing at the corner of his mouth. “Do you have any ideas?” he posed, looking towards Adriana who had her head on his shoulder, her blue eyes peeking towards the baby.

Adriana shook her head. “I thought we were going to be having a boy” she noted softly “I had a couple of names in place for a boy, but I didn’t have one for a girl. What about you?” she posed, her blue eyes mirroring his darker ones.

Iker shrugged. “I have a couple in mind” he noted softly.

“You do?” Adriana quipped.

Iker quirked a soft smile before he nodded his head. “You don’t have to like any of them” he noted as he moved to collect his jacket from beside the bed “We can always give it some more thought, but these are the 3 that I liked best” he added, pulling a piece of paper out of his wallet before he handed it over towards Adriana.

Adriana titled her head a little before she took the piece of paper out of his hand, quickly reading the names he had written down before she shook her head. “You like these?” she posed softly.

“I do” Iker confirmed softly “But, if you don’t…”

“Iker, they’re great” Adriana interjected softly.

Iker blinked a couple of times, caught off guard by her interruption, before he tilted his head. “You think so?” he posed softly.

Adriana nodded. “I like them, Iker” she mused softly “And I would be happy with whatever one you want to choose” she added, offering him a soft encouraging smile.

Iker offered her a slightly dubious look, wordlessly enquiring if she was certain, before he nodded his head. Returning her smile gently, he pressed a brief kiss against the side of her head before he carefully moved his arms, wrapping them around the little girl before he carefully sat up, readjusting the small hat which sat on the top of her head. “Gabriela” he whispered softly “Gabriela Grace Casillas Montes” he added gently before he ducked down, pressing a soft kiss to the top of the baby’s head.

Adriana watched him for a couple of seconds, admiring the soft expression he wore, before she shook her head, moving to press a soft kiss against his cheek. “I love it” she mumbled softly.

Iker offered her a boyish smile before he turned his head, pressing a soft kiss against her lips. Adriana startled a little, caught off guard by the soft kiss, but she quickly warmed to it, her arms wrapping around him carefully for a couple of seconds before Gabriela let out a small sound, causing her parents to pull away from one another. “I think she might want her mama” Iker mumbled softly, stealing another couple of light kisses.

Adriana nodded her head. “It is probably about time she had another feed” she mused softly “Why don’t you go and get yourself a coffee or something?” she added gently, carefully lifting Gabriela out of his arms.

Iker nodded before he pushed himself up to his feet, moving to press a light kiss to both Adriana and Gabriela’s heads. “I love you” he mumbled softly “Both of you” he added with a soft smile before he padded out of the room.

Adriana watched him out of the room for a couple of seconds before she flicked her attention towards Gabriela who cooed softly in her arms. She knew that things were going to change, with Gabriela around as well as Luca and Olivia, there was no way that things couldn’t change at all, but Adriana hoped that the shift in dynamics of their relationship was too dramatic, even if she knew that things couldn’t stay the same, she wanted things between her and Iker to remain as good as they had been.
