You’re lying in bed, scrolling through social media apps,and rubbing your swollen belly. Now being six months pregnant, it is taking a
toll on you and your energy.
You hear the front door open and close, and heavy footsteps
come down the main hall.
“Y/N! Babe, where are you?” Ashley
yells to you.
“I’m in the bedroom,” You holler just as Ashley rounds the
corner into your shared bedroom.
“How are you feeling?” he asks, kissing your temple before
taking off his jacket and laying it on the chair.
“Ash, I’m exhausted. How am I even going to be able to go on
for three more months?” You say lowly.
You haven’t been able to do much with your friends, family,
or even Ashley while being pregnant, and that’s made you beyond upset. Ever
since the first day you woke with morning sickness, you’ve been tired and
“Baby. I’m sorry. You know I’d help you if I could.” Ashley
says, holding your cheek and looking at you with sad eyes.
“I know.” You shut your eyes for a minute and felt the side
of the bed dip.
You thought Ashley was just going to lay there and play with
your hair like he normally does, but instead, you feel him lay his head on your
“Hey buddy, it’s your dad. I got something you today when I
was out with your uncles. It’s a black leather jacket, similar to mine.” You
heard him say while rubbing the lower part of your stomach.
A smile grows on you lips, but your eyes stay closed.
“You know, I wish I could actually hold you now. I bet you’re
gonna have your momma’s eyes and hair. You’re gonna be the cutest baby boy
ever. I’ll teach you how to play bass, throw a football, and surf. I’ll always
support you know matter what. If you’re scared, I’ll be there; if you’re being
bullied, you can talk to me; girl trouble, I got you son. You’ll be my little man
and I will always love you.”
Tears gather in your eyes as you open them. You stare at
Ashley’s lips pressed against your belly, smiling like an idiot.
He continues to softly rub and talk to your bump. Suddenly,
he stops and looks up at you shocked. He face quickly turns to utter happiness.
“You felt that, didn’t you?” you ask.
Nodding his head furiously with tears in his eyes and a
smile from ear to ear, he looks back to your stomach.
“That – that feeling is just amazing.” He said. “Like I
don’t know how to explain it – it was just – wow.” He breathes out, putting his
hand back on your stomach.
“I know. I didn’t tell you, but a few weeks ago I was doing
the exact same thing and he kicked.” You say smiling and running your fingers
though his long hair.
“Why didn’t you tell me?”
“I wanted you to feel it for yourself.” You say.
“Well thank you, because that was just amazing.” He says,
looking at you with his hand on your belly.
“You’re welcome babe.”
“I love you so much Y/N”
“I love you too Ash.” He sits up and kisses you on the lips,
still excited with the fact he had felt your son kick for the first time.
