We Could Be Something

65: I Like Surprises

Frowning a little, Adriana tossed onto her side, her ears doused by the sound of the alarm clock which sat on the end table. It had been a little while, after she and Iker had celebrated their first anniversary, a few weeks had passed, and still things were good between the two of them, something which pleased Adriana greatly. She had been a little worried, with Olivia around and her second pregnancy, she had worried that things between her and Iker would stutter a little, but she was pleased that they hadn’t. She was more than a little fond of the way things were between them.

Shaking her head, she moved to flick off the alarm before she pushed herself to her feet, moving to collect her dressing gown which hung on the back of the door before she padded towards the kitchen, her blue eyes settling on Iker who sat at the kitchen table reading a newspaper whilst Olivia sat in his arms, babbling happily.

Pausing for a second, she quirked a soft smile before she cleared her throat, causing Iker to lift his head. “What are you doing up?” he posed softly. It was early, too early for Adriana who’d started to feel more fatigued as her pregnancy had progressed, and Iker was a little surprised to see her awake so soon.

Adriana, who’d moved to pour herself a glass of juice, quirked a small smile. “You left your alarm on” she noted softly “What are you doing up so early?” she added, moving to collect Olivia from his arms.

Iker admired the two of them for a couple of seconds before he shrugged his shoulders slightly. “I heard Olivia stirring over the monitor and I thought I would check on her” he noted softly “It turns out that she needed a nappy change and since then, we’ve been sat in here” he added softly.

“You didn’t think about coming back to bed?” Adriana quipped, a small smirk on her face.

Iker rolled his eyes playfully. “I thought about it” he played along “But you’re always telling me that you feel tired lately so I thought I’d let you lay in. I’m sorry I left the alarm on” he added, his voice soft.

Adriana shook her head. “It’s OK” she noted softly “I should be up around now anyway. Don’t you need to think about getting ready for training?” she posed.

“I do” Iker confirmed “But I will see you at the hospital for your appointment, won’t I?” he posed gently as he pushed himself up to his feet. It was something he had been waiting for, since he’d attended Adriana’s 12 week scan, he had been waiting for another chance to see their baby, and he was excited, even if they were still a while away from welcoming the new addition, he was excited at the prospect of seeing them again.

Adriana, who’d moved to settle Olivia into her seat, quirked a small smile at the tone of his voice before she stepped towards him, pressing a brief kiss against his lips. “Of course you will” she noted softly “I’ll see you later” she added, pecking his lips once more.

Iker smiled a little into the kiss for a couple of seconds before he ducked down, pressing a soft kiss against the bump which was noticeable beneath the dressing gown that Adriana wore. “Adios, bump” he mused softly before he stepped out of the room.

Adriana watched after him for a couple of seconds before she shook her head, wordlessly musing about how sweet he was.

Resting back into her seat a little, Adriana closed her eyes, trying to swallow the hit of nerves which twitched in her stomach. It wasn’t the first time, even when she had been pregnant with Olivia, she had always found herself a little nervous before her scans, and she wanted to try and calm herself down a little before Isla appeared.

Taking in a small breath, she shifted a little in her seat before she felt a hand take a hold of her own, something which caused her to jump, her eyes peeking up at Iker who grinned at her impishly. “I didn’t mean to scare you” he quipped, moving to settle in the seat at her side “You just looked a little nervous” he added, squeezing her hand softly.

Adriana spared a small glance down towards their hands before she shook her head. “I’m OK” she noted softly.

“You sure?” Iker posed softly “Because if you’re not…”

“I’m fine, Iker” Adriana interjected softly.

Iker offered her a slightly dubious look, wordlessly checking that she was sure, before he nodded his head, resting back slightly in his seat. “Have you given any thought to whether or not you want to know if we’re having a boy or girl?” he posed softly, his fingers messing slightly with hers.

Adriana watched the movement of his hand before she nodded. “I’ve given it some thought” she mused softly “And I thought I’d leave the decision up to you” she added gently, a small smile on her face.

Iker tilted his head. “What?” he asked.

“You can decide whether or not we find out” Adriana noted softly “I’d be happy either way” she added, squeezing his hand gently.

Iker stared at her for a couple of seconds, slightly surprised by her words, before the sound of footsteps reached his ears, causing him to turn to look at Isla who smiled at the couple warmly. “Are you two ready to come through?” she posed softly.

Adriana nodded her head a little before she pushed herself to her feet, following after the midwife who led them through towards her cubicle. “Why don’t you hop up onto the bed, Adriana?” Isla posed.

Adriana offered her another nod before she climbed up onto the bed, moving to push the material of her sweater away from her bump.

“Have you two given any thought to whether or not you want to find out the sex?” Isla mused as she leant towards Adriana, smoothing the cool gel over the top of the bump.

Iker, who was sat in the seat beside his girlfriend, offered her a soft look before he nodded his head softly. “We’d like to wait” he noted softly.

Adriana tilted her head. “You would?” she posed softly.

Iker nodded. “I would” he confirmed.

Adriana offered him a soft look before she shook her head. “If you want to know, I really don’t mind” she noted gently.

“I know” Iker mused “But I would like to wait. It’s only a few months and I’ve always kind of like surprises. Are you Ok with waiting?” he posed, offering her hand a small squeeze.

Adriana spared a small glance down towards their hands before she quirked a small smile. “I’m more than OK with it” she enthused softly.

Iker offered her a small smile before he leant towards her, pressing a soft kiss against the side of her head. He was curious, for a while, he had been excited by the prospect of finding out whether he and Adriana were expecting a boy or a girl, but part of him wanted to wait, even if was more than a little curious, he liked the idea of finding out when the baby arrived.
