Basil: Camellia! Are you ok? Is the baby ok?
Camellia: Oh, Basil. I’ve been so scared here on my own. The doctor told me that the baby will be here before dawn. What if I can’t do this?

Basil: You’ll never break sweetheart. I’ll make sure of it.
Camellia: I… need to…push…please get the doctor…*groans*
Camellia: It’s happening right now…
