The Hostage Chapter 17
The last several days, I’ve woken up feeling sick. I think I’ve finally figured out what is going on with me.
I call Rob over from working on the invention table and let him know my suspicions.
I’m very worried about what is going to happen. How can I have a baby while being trapped in here. I need to be in the hospital with lots of doctors and medications!. Rob on the other hand is very pleased. He says it will all work out and everything will be fine. Since when is he Mr. Positivity?
He tries to hear the baby moving around, I didn’t have the heart to tell him that it is really too early to hear anything. I haven’t even felt it move yet, but he insists that he can hear him… Yes, he thinks it’s a boy already.
Rob and I both run to the living room to check the bookcase. He thinks there are some birthing and parenting books here. We each grab a book and get to reading, we have a lot to learn!
We both dreamed of the baby that will be coming soon, that night. Even though I’m very nervous, I’m excited too. I’ve always wanted to be a mother. I think Rob will be a great dad, he is already very protective of me. I can only imagine how he will be with a baby.
Rob still works every evening trying to find a way out of here, but he spends a lot of time just taking care of me. He seems almost obsessed with making sure I’m comfortable. I seem to be getting bigger by the day, but Rob is always there to give me a massage.
Swimming is about the only exercise I can do now. With my belly, I can’t jog on the treadmill anymore. So, I spend a lot of time swimming or just catching a nap by the pool. I’m tired, I can’t help it!
The time has passed so quickly, it’s hard to believe that any day now the baby will be here. Rob likes to tease that there should be two babies in there, one for me and one for him. I tell him one is quite enough! I have gained a lot of weight, so hopefully just one baby!
I head down to the bedroom to lay down, I just feel so tired. Rob of course is there waiting on me, when I get a sudden pain in my stomach. Oh no, I’m not ready!!
I fight the urge to run up the stairs and climb the fence to get out of here. I really need to be at the hospital. I have no idea how to have a baby. Rob calmly stands next to me and tells me things will be fine. He knows exactly what to do.I’m not convinced, but quickly figure out there is no stopping this. I focus and do as Rob tells me and soon, little Robyn is born.
But, I notice that something is not right. The baby is fine, but I’m still in pain. I quickly hand the baby off to Rob and try to figure out what to do next.
The pain keeps coming and coming and just when I think I might die from it, little Merri and Lauren are born. Yes, wouldn’t you know it!! Triplets!!
This is Little Merri and Rob is holding Lauren.
I tell Rob that we are in trouble, we have 3 babies and no where to put them. Rob then tells me that he received an email a few days ago that told him one of the locked rooms has been unlocked. He checked the room out and kept it hidden from me. He didn’t want to worry me with it, but when we get to the room. There are 3 baby cribs. I don’t know how or why but right now I’m too tired to even care. We have 3 healthy babies and cribs for each one. I’ll worry about all the rest tomorrow.
