Remington & Rylan Scenario V

That kiss could’ve lasted forever. Holding her there in his arms. Her arms around his neck. Both of them smiling underneath their kisses. The crowd’s applause and laughter surrounding them was completely silenced to them. He whispered I love you. She whispered it back. Their foreheads touched, they closed their eyes. Time stood still.
The next morning, once again he made her second favorite breakfast. Breakfast Burritos. He knew she didn’t like blueberry pancakes two days in a row. He fixed her burrito complete with all of her favorites. Jalapenos, banana peppers, Valentina, and Cholula topped off her breakfast master piece. He couldn’t stop smiling. She came into the kitchen in his t-shirt, make-up-less, messy hair, and beautiful. Rubbing her eyes she walked over to him and hugged him. She smelled so good. She thanked him again with a kiss. This was the start of a beautiful beginning.
Seven years down the road. Same sweet love. Same midnight kisses. Same bedside breakfasts. There’s going to be a little one. She says it’s time to go. He breaks into a sweat. She calms him in a firm voice to get the car. He scrambles around searching for the keys. She yells at him because they are already in the car. He dashes into the garage. She chuckles at his clumsy actions. He normally does pretty well under pressure, but not this time. She holds her back and slowly makes her way outside. He scrambles out of the car and runs up to her and picks her up and carries her to the car. He is freaking out. He keeps asking her if she is okay. She smiles shakes her head yes.
At the hospital he carries her in and yells for someone to get a doctor on the double. She laughs at his impatience. She asks him to put her down. He does very gently. She kisses his cheek and whispers, “calm down love” into his ear. He smiles kisses her forehead and then turns to yell at the nurse for not getting a doctor fast enough. She laughs, but it’s starting to hurt. The pain is growing ever quickly. The twins are getting very impatient.
Hours pass. He won’t leave her side. He screams when she does.
The moment comes. A baby’s cry fills the room. Then another baby’s cry echoes. Tears stream down his face. She smiles as he gets their baby boy. Ryder. He looked just like Rylan. Simply beautiful. The doctor brought their second miracle to Remington. Her face was perfect. God’s faultless gifts. They both were crying. Life would never be the same.
