We Could Be Something

62: If You Look Here

Leaning against the kitchen counter, Iker quirked a soft smile, his dark eyes watching Adriana as she attempted to feed Olivia. It had been a little while, after Adriana had shared the news that she was expecting, almost a month had passed, but still Iker found himself more than a little excited by the idea of the impending arrival, even if it was still a little way off, he hadn’t quite been able to shift the smile off of his face.

“Iker, you know that you’re going to be late for training if you stand there for much longer, don’t you?”

Iker, who’d drifted off slightly, startled a little at the sound of Adriana’s voice before he lifted his head, sparing a look towards the clock which sat on the wall ahead of him, a sight which made Adriana giggle a little. “You should probably get moving” she mused as she pushed herself to her feet, moving to settle her dishes into the sink.

Iker nodded his head. “I probably should, but I will see you at the hospital later, won’t I?” he posed, stepping towards her slightly.

Adriana quirked a small smile at the tone of his voice, not missing how excited he sounded, before she nodded her head. “Of course you will” she enthused softly “You’ll be on time for that, won’t you?” she quipped, offering him a teasing smile.

Iker rolled his eyes playfully before he ducked down, sneaking a quick kiss before he stepped out of the room, something which made Adriana shake her head a little, a small smile playing at the corner of her mouth. It had surprised her a little, how well Iker had taken the news that she was pregnant had caught her a little off guard, but she had to admit that she was pleased that he had taken it so well. A small part of her had been a little worried that his reaction would be similar to Jonathan’s.

“You’re late”

Adriana, who’d just stepped into the waiting room, startled a little at the sound of Iker’s voice before she lifted her head, rolling her eyes slightly. “I think you’ll find I am perfectly on time” she quipped as guided Olivia’s pushchair towards him “You’re just here early” she added.

“I figured that it was better to be early rather than late” he mused softly “I mean, it took a little convincing to get the coach to let me out training a few minutes early, but I did” he added, offering her a small smile.

Adriana allowed his words to hang around them for a couple of seconds before she leant towards him, pressing a light kiss against his cheek. “I am glad that you made it” she enthused softly.

Iker offered her another smile before Olivia let out a small sound, something which caused him to lean forwards, cooing to her gently. “How are you feeling?” he posed softly, his dark eyes peeking towards Adriana slightly.

Adriana, who’d been watching him with Olivia, shook her head. “I am OK” she noted softly “I mean, I’m slightly uncomfortable sometimes, but the morning sickness is starting to wear off, something I am more than happy about. I don’t feel too dissimilar to how I felt when I was pregnant with her” she added, her blue eyes peeking towards Olivia who was happily messing around the stuffed toy Iker had placed into her hands.

Iker nodded his head a little before the sound of footsteps reached his ears, causing him to peek up towards the woman who stood ahead of them, a warm grin on her face. “It’s good to see you again, Adriana” she greeted softly.

“And you too, Isla” Adriana mused, pushing herself up to her feet.

Iker looked between the two women before he pushed himself back to his feet, offering his hand out towards the other woman. “Hola, Isla” he greeted softly “I’m Iker, Addie’s boyfriend” he added warmly.

Isla quirked a small grin before she shook his hand. “It’s nice to meet you, Iker” she mused softly “I am Adriana’s midwife. Do you want to come through?” she posed.

Adriana offered the midwife another soft smile before she padded after her, following her into the small examination room before she climbed up onto the bed.

“I’ve already read over the latest checks you’ve had done” Isla mused as she stepped up beside the bed, carefully bunching up the material of Adriana’s shirt “And everything is looking very positive. I’d still like to see you every couple of weeks, just to make sure that things are still going along well, but I am pretty happy with your progress” she enthused softly.

Iker, who’d moved to sit beside the bed, quirked a small smile at the sound of the midwife’s words before he sat up a little, pressing a soft kiss against the side of the Adriana’s head.

Isla smiled a little at them before she moved to smooth the gel over Adriana’s stomach, something which made her flinch a little before the midwife started the run the scanner over the small bump she carried. “If you look just here” Isla mused, gesturing towards the screen “You’ll see your baby” she added gently.

Iker, who’d moved to knot his fingers with Adriana’s, lifted his head a little at the sound of the midwife’s voice before he flicked his attention towards the screen, his breath catching slightly at the sight of the image that filled it.

Adriana quirked a soft smile at the small noise which had fallen out of his mouth before she lifted their hands, pressing a light kiss against the skin.

Iker startled a little at the feel of her lips against his skin before he turned away from the screen slightly, quirking a soft smile “That’s our bump” he mumbled quietly.

Adriana giggled a little at the awed tone of his voice before she nodded her head, her hand offering his a soft and reassuring squeeze. She knew that it was a little sudden, the news that she was pregnant had caught them both a little by surprise, but she was excited, even if they still had a way to go, part of her was more than a little excited about the idea of the new baby’s arrival.
