You slowly walked through the store with your friend, (f/n), looking at the different baby clothes on sale. You smiled as your friend lifted up a cute shirt, saying how you should buy it for the baby. You shook your head lightly, the shirt was for a baby girl, and you weren't sure what gender the baby was yet, so you didn't want to buy clothes that your child couldn't wear. Your friend pouted and you giggled, before you suddenly hunched over as a wave of pain went through your body. You gasped as you felt something drip down your leg, and you immediately knew your water broke.
You looked up and said," M-My water just broke!" Your friend dropped the shirt and rushed over to you, placing a hand on your shoulder as they pulled their phone out to call for an ambulance. You breathed out raggedly, thinking this can't be happening, not while Im Yong Soo was so far away. You stopped thinking about that as two paramedics walked in with a gurney. They told you to lie down, and you did so. You looked up at your friend, who told you they would go back to your house to grab your stuff. You nodded and they ran off to their car, as you were strolled to the ambulance. As the ambulance made its way to the hospital, you thought about how your husband was at a world conference, over an hour away from the hospital. You would have to call him as soon as you got to the hospital, and you looked up. You didn't want to think about him possibly missing the birth of your child, so you thought of the day he asked you out.
"So, like, who do you have a crush on, (f/n)?" You looked at your friend, Felix, in surprise at the sudden question. You weren't sure why he was asking you this suddenly, you hadn't said anything to him about a boy, but you did actually like someone.
But, knowing Felix the whole campus would know about it within an hour, so you lied," I don't like anyone, at least not that way." Felix gave you a look that said he knew you were lying, and you giggled nervously, when you looked in front of you. Standing a few feet away was the boy you did have a crush on, Im Yong Soo, who you knew from one of your classes. Felix followed your gaze, and he smirked mischievously as he saw who you were looking at.
He turned to you," You so like him, don't you?" You blushed slightly, and you were about to protest when he laughed loudly.
"You like totally have a crush on him!" You shook your head quickly, but he kept talking, shouting actually," What's his name? You, like so have to tell me!" You were waving your hands now, trying to get him to be quiet, and you looked over and you blushed when you realized Im Yong Soo was staring at you. You turned away quickly, when Felix suddenly shoved you, and you went flying forward. You slammed into Im Yong Soo, knocking the books from his hands.
You blushed brightly as you bent down to help him," I-I'm so sorry!" You looked over your shoulder and glared at Felix who was whistling innocently.
"It's fine, it's not your fault, I saw your friend push you, da-ze." You turned your head and looked at Im Yong Soo, who was smiling. Your blush grew darker as you grabbed the last book off the ground, before going to stand. Suddenly, he offered his hand to you, and you slowly took it, feeling as though your face was as bright as the sun.
He pulled you up and you said," I'm sorry again, I don't know why my friend did that." You handed him the books, and he smiled as your hand brushed against his.
He chuckled as you pulled your hand back quickly, " Actually, I'm glad he did that." You looked at him with a confused expression, and you noticed a light blush on his cheeks as he continued," I've been meaning to talk to you for a while now, da-ze."
You tilted your head slightly, " Why would you want to talk to me?"
You watched as his blush grew brighter," W-Well, I wanted to ask you, if you would go out with me sometime." You blushed brightly as you giggled nervously, since you couldn't believe he was asking you out.
After a minute you said," Sure, I'd love to, can I walk with you to class?" He nodded and smiled, and you started walking with him. You turned around slightly to look at Felix, and once you saw him you mouthed a thank you. He laughed out loud and gave you a thumbs up.
You smiled at the memory, thinking about how much you had thanked Felix after your very first date with Im Yong Soo. You looked up as you felt the ambulance pull to a stop, and you waited to be rolled out. As soon as you got into the hospital, you were brought up to the room where you would soon give birth. Just thought made you nervous, but you were brought out of your thoughts as your friend walked in with your bags. They smiled at you before saying how it was time to call everyone and tell them you were going into labor. You sighed, knowing the next half hour of your life was going to be filled with the screams of excited friends and family.
You smiled as you ended the last call you would have to make. You'd called everyone who could possibly want to know about you going into labor. It was embarrassing, considering almost all of your friends were at the same world conference as Im Yong Soo, you had to call them when they were at the meeting. It wasn't that bad, because many of them knew about it from when you called your husband, so after a while they just passed the same cellphone around to congratulate you. You giggled as you thought about when you called Im Yong Soo.
You smiled slightly as you heard your husband's voice through the phone," Hello? (f/n), why are you calling me, I'm at the meeting da-ze!" As you went to answer him, you gasped, as another contraction sent pain through your body. You balled your hand in a fist, willing the pain to go away, before breathing in and out calmly.
"(f/n), what's wrong? Why are you breathing like that, da-ze?" You could hear the worry in his voice, and you giggled slightly despite the pain.
You answered him," Oh, it's nothing, I'm just going into labor is all." You could hear him gasp, and then you heard a thud, so you suspected he'd fallen.
You laughed slightly as he started panicking, shouting random words at the other people attending the conference, before he started yelling into the phone at you. After a few moments of shouting, he'd calmed down enough to say something that made sense.
" Don't worry, just remember all those exercises from the classes, da-ze? I'll be there as soon as I can!" You smiled softly, relieved that he was on his way.
Your smile grew as you said," Don't worry, I know you will, I love you Im Yong Soo."
He said," I love you too, and I know you'll do fine beca- hey! Move it, my wife's going to have my baby and I won't be there if you don't get out of my way, da-ze!" You laughed, even if he kind of ruined the moment. You said good-bye, putting your phone down, before looking at your large stomach. You rubbed it softly, thinking about the child you were going to have soon.
You smiled lovingly as you whispered," Don't worry, daddy will be here in no time, and we can welcome you into the world together."
You smiled softly, as another contraction finally passed, and you breathed in and out calmly as you rubbed you stomach. You looked at your hands, watching as your wedding ring shined in the light as you moved your hands. You stopped moving your hands, and gently rolled the ring with your right hand, smiling as you felt the smooth metal touch your fingertips. You smiled as you thought back to the day Im Yong Soo proposed to you, and you laid your head back against the pillow as you remembered it.
"Where are we going?" You asked as your boyfriend of two years dragged you up a hill, apparently wanting to show you something.
He turned his head and smiled at you," You'll see, da-ze!" You giggled softly, letting him pull you along, as you watched the top of the hill get closer. Once you almost reached the top, Im Yong Soo suddenly stopped, causing you to bump into his back.
You tilted your head in confusion," Why did you st-" You quit speaking as he went around your back, and put his hands in front of your eyes.
"I want it to be a surprise, so you can't see it until we're at this one spot, da-ze." You giggled and nodded your head slightly, slowly moving forward when he told you to. You continued your trek up the hill, until you started walking on flat land, so you knew you were on the top. Im Yong Soo slowly nudged you forward, and as you kept moving, you could feel something brushing against your ankles. You wondered what it was, and then you sniffed the air, and you could suddenly smell a sweet, floral scent.
You were about to question this, when he suddenly said," Stop, we're here, da-ze!" He lowered his hands, and you slowly opened your eyes. You gasped at what you saw, because you were standing in a huge field of (f/f). You turned around, looking at your boyfriend in surprise. He was smiling brightly, and your smile grew bigger as you tackled him in a hug. His eyes widened in surprise, and he fell backwards, you landing on top of him. The two of you laughed as you snuggled your face in his shirt.
After a few seconds you pulled back and looked at him," This is so pretty, I love it! But why did you do something like this? It's not a special occasion or anything." As you said this you watched as he blushed lightly, and you tilted your head in confusion.
He slowly leaned up, taking your hand in his as he said," Well, hopefully it will be special after this." You were about to ask him what he meant when he reached into his pocket, and pulled a small box out. You stared at him, your (e/c) eyes widening as he opened the box to reveal a beautiful ring. You gasped as your hands flew to your mouth, tears forming in your eyes.
His blush grew brighter as he said," I took you out here, to show you how much I love you. You are the most beautiful person I have ever met, da-ze. You're kind, outgoing, amazing, and perfect the way you are. I can't imagine spending my life with anyone else other than you, da-ze. So, (f/n)(f/l), will you do me the honor of marrying me?" At this point, you had tears streaming down your face, and you nodded your head slowly.
You threw your arms around his neck, and he chuckled lightly. He pulled back for a second, grabbing your left hand and placing the ring on your finger. You stared at, it was so pretty, and you hugged him again.
Your grip tightened as you said," I love you so much." He laughed lightly and rubbed your back slightly before pulling away once again.
He smiled at you lovingly," I love you too, (f/n)." With that, he leaned in to kiss you, and you eagerly kissed back. Today was definitely going to be special, and you smiled into the kiss at the thought of getting married.
It had been about an hour since you remembered that special day, and you were currently in a world of pain. You were minutes away from giving birth, and you'd never been in so much pain before. Your face was scrunched in pain and you were drenched in sweat. You were mentally willing your body to wait, at least until Im Yong Soo got there. You didn't want to have your baby without him, and if that meant mentally yelling at yourself to hold on, than you were going to do just that. You looked up at the nurse who was telling you that any minute now you would have to start pushing. Just the thought of pushing a baby out of your...yeah, just the thought sent another wave of pain through you. You knew just thinking about it wasn't going to do you any good, so you thought of something else. You started breathing in and out raggedly as you thought back to the day you told Im Yong Soo you were pregnant.
You wringed your hands together nervously, waiting for Im Yong Soo to get home from work. You'd just confirmed that you were pregnant, and you planned on telling him tonight. You were worried there was a chance he wouldn't be happy about the pregnancy, so you were really nervous about telling him. You tried to go with something original to tell him, so you made a cake that said "Congrats! You're going to be a dad!" Ok, maybe it wasn't all that original, it was somewhat different.
You heard the front door open and your husband call out," Honey, I'm home, da-ze!" Despite your nervousness, you giggled at his usual greeting. He walked into the living room and smiled as he walked over and kissed you.
You smiled gently before saying," So, how was your day at work?" This is where your plan started, well one of your plans. If he said he'd had a bad day, you would say the cake was to make him feel better, that was plan A. If he said he'd had a good day, you would say you just felt like making a cake, this was plan B.
He smiled and said," It was great, da-ze!"
Plan B it is," Honey, I made a cake today." He gave you a confused look, because you usually don't bake something for no reason. He asked you why, and you laughed nervously.
"I don't know, I just noticed we had all of the ingredients, so I said why not bake a cake? It's in the kitchen." He smiled and walked in to get a piece, and you felt like you were going to pass out from nervousness. You stood there, your eyes closed in anticipation. You heard him gasp, and you breathed in, waiting for him to come back in and say something. You were surprised when you were suddenly lifted into the air, and Im Yong Soo's laughter filled the air. He spun you around as you opened your eyes and looked at him in surprise. He smiled at you brightly as he set you down.
"So, I'm guessing you're happy about me being pregnant?" He nodded his head excitedly before picking you up once again, but this time you joined him when he laughed. After a minute he put you down, and hugged you against him tight. As you hugged back you smiled and giggled lightly, not knowing why you'd been so nervous before.
You would have smiled at the memory if you weren't in so much pain, and you looked up as the nurse walked out to get your doctor. You breathed in and out raggedly, not even looking at the door when it opened up again. Your eyes were shut in pain as you heard the doctor say something to the nurse, and someone else. Suddenly, you felt a hand grip yours tightly, and you opened your eyes. You gasped when you saw Im Yong Soo looking at you lovingly.
You smiled despite the pain," Y-You're here."
He chuckled lightly," Of course I'm here, da-ze!"
You were about to say how happy you were, when pain shot through your body and you screamed in pain. Im Yong Soo gave you a worried look as the doctor told you to start pushing. Your grip on your husband's hand tightened, to the point that it was turning purple, but he wasn't complaining. He went through the different things that you learned at class to help you through the birth. At one point he even pulled out a (f/f) for you to focus on instead of the pain, and you were so happy. That's why somewhere in the back of your mind you felt bad for what you said next, knowing it was just the hormones.
" You stupid idiot, do you think some little flower is going to make me feel better?! No, it's not! And instead of using it for me to focus on, how about using it to apologize for causing me all this pain! I ha-AAH" You screamed in pain, stopping your little rant. Im Yong Soo frowned, he ignored your rant and thought about you being in pain instead. The doctor told you just one more push, and the baby would be out. You screamed, pushing with the little energy you had left, and suddenly a scream other than yours filled the room.
You stared at the doctor as he lifted up your newborn," It's a girl!" You smiled weakly, laughing lightly as tears filled your eyes. You looked up at Im Yong Soo, who was staring at the baby in awe. When the doctor asked him to come over, he looked down at you. You nodded slightly, and he squeezed your hand before walking over to your new baby girl. You watched him as the doctor handed him your baby, before he walked back to you. He smiled and laughed as tears filled his eyes.
He handed you your baby, and you took her in your arms gently," Hi sweetie, I told you we could welcome you to the world together." You smiled at Im Yong Soo, who kissed your forehead gently.
"She's beautiful, just like her mother." You giggled slightly, before looking at your baby once again.
You looked at Im Yong Soo, who was holding your daughter, who you decided to name (f/n). You smiled as you watched him play with her, and he looked up at you. He smiled before walking over and sitting on the side of your hospital bed.
He looked at you and said," So, what did you do when I wasn't here?"
You smiled and said," I thought about memories of you and me," He smiled softly and the two of you looked at your daughter as you said," And now, we can make more memories of you, me, and our baby girl."
