the modern adventures of Adam & Belle (2/?): TWINS
After only being married for a few weeks, a positive pregnancy test wasn’t what Belle, nor Adam, were expecting. They’d barely settled into being husband and wife, and now they were going to be parents? Yet, the more that they talked about it, the more that it actually sounded sort of nice. They were both fond of children, and had always planned to have their own; just, perhaps, not so early on.
After deciding to keep the baby, things progress swimmingly. They’ve just gotten used to the idea that it won’t only be the two of them for much longer, and then they get hit with another wallop of unexpected news.
Twins. They’re not just having a baby - they’re having twins.
For the remaining months of Belle’s pregnancy, Adam is in a constant state of panic. How can they take care of two babies when they don’t even have practice taking care of one? What if something went wrong when Belle gave birth? It seemed horribly unfair to make her do it twice her very first time.
Belle, on the other hand, is entirely calm and collected. She reads every book available to her about pregnancy, both standard and for when one is expecting twins, and everything goes smoothly - well, as smoothly as things can go in these situations. There’s a great deal of screaming (most of which comes from Adam), and Belle swears that she’s never, ever going to give birth ever again. But when they finally hold their tiny son and daughter for the first time, everything falls into place. It might not be how they planned to start a family, but neither of them would trade how it happened for the world.
