Prompt from @voguevamp, thank you so much! I really enjoyed this one, I hope you like it. :)
The book mentioned is “Bye Bye Baby” by Janet and Allan Ahlberg, and I really don’t imagine it would be available in Storybrooke as it’s English and out of print, but when I read the dialogue prompt it was all I could think about.
They were fools, maybe, to think they had more time.
They should have thought of it before, probably, before they moved Robin and Roland unceremoniously into Regina’s house like there was never any question and never another possibility, before Regina treated Roland as her own, oversaw teeth brushing and morning dressing as often as Robin did himself, took him to lunch at Granny’s and knew his hugs around her midsection like he had never hugged anyone else, before Roland started school, certainly, and learned to look at other families than the ‘charmingly’ bohemian nature of a band of thieves squatting in the woods.
Before, above all, Roland practised his reading on a children’s book Regina had never quite bought for Henry for worrying it might make their family of two seem too small.
(And before, Regina thinks, in a second of blind panic, before she was left alone, Robin out helping Charming and delayed, with such a momentously important and delicate question.)
“Will you be my Mama?” Roland asks, wobbling slightly on his toes on a footstool as he stretches up for the sink, toothpaste froth all over his chin and hand as he grins widely into the mirror and turns, jumps down to face her.

Anatotitan was a duck-billed dinosaur, one of the most widespread dinosaur groups. About 70 million years ago, duck-billed dinosaurs lived in the Americas, Europe, and Asia. Their habitats varied from forests in river valleys to swamps in coastal floodplains.
In addition to their ducklike beaks and webbed front feet, some of the fossil “mummy” duck-billed dinosaurs had powerful jaws with hundreds of blunt teeth that were ideal for grinding fibrous land plants.
How I Fell In Love Chapter18 (Harry Styles Fanfic Sequel)
I looked down to see that there was blood coming through my jeans. My jaw dropped and everything around me was moving in slow motion. I could see everyone running towards me in a slow haze through my tear filled eyes.
“Call an ambulance!” Harry shouted at one of the boys who already had their phones out, “Y/N…Y/N…You’re going to be okay. Y/N?” My head was pounding as I fell back into Harry’s arms.
I saw Harry in front of me. We were in a park. The warm sun was out and birds were chirping so happily in the summer breeze.
“London is beautiful this time of year isn’t it?” Harry said with his green eyes as bright as ever.
“It’s lovely,” I said with a lazy smile. My eyes were still adjusting to the brightness of the sky that had never seemed quite a blue until now, “Where is everyone?”
“Hm?” he said cocking an eyebrow at me.
“The guys and their wives? Their kids?” I aid furrowing my brows, “Where’s my family? And yours?”
“Y/N,” Harry said leaning in, “They’re over there. You want to go see them?”
I gave him a small smile and nodded my head like a child. He stood up and stretched out his hand to help me to my feet. He had pointed to the bottom of the hill, where there was a massive oak tree and picnic benches where our family and friends were gathered at.
“Harry…” I said watching two 4 year old children running around Grams and Gramps who had huge smiles on their faces, “Who are those two beautiful children? The boy looks just like you…and the girl…”
He looked down at me and gave me a cornered grin, “Looks just like you?”
My bottom lip dropped slightly, “Can I meet them?”
He chuckled, “Of course. They’re our children!”
I stopped him and cocked my eyebrow in disbelief, “Our children?”
He nodded his head and a wide grin took over his entire face, “Yes, they’re our children.”
I took in a shaky breath, still not able to believe the sight in front of me, “What’s their names?”
He whispered sweetly, “Emma and Logan.”
“They’re beautiful…so beautiful,” I stuttered.
As I approached the picnic table the two kids ran over to me and wrapped their arms around me. I had tears of joy rimming my eyes and I stroked their curly hair, “Hi…Hi, beautiful.”
“Mummy!” the miniature Harry exclaimed, “Mummy! Can we feed the ducks?!”
“Mummy, I picked you a flower,” the little girl who mirrored my every feature except more precious and more beautiful handed me a dandelion that was already half blown before giving me a kiss on the cheek and running into the arms of her father.
“Daddy,” Emma chirped, “When can I start taking karate classes? I want to be just like mummy!”
He laughed, “She took tae kwon doe, silly. Once you go start school you can start learning!”
I picked up Logan into my arms who chimed in also, “And I want to play guitar like Uncle Jason!”
“Maybe you should ask Uncle Jason if he can teach you!” I said brushing his bright red cheeks.
“Daddy?” Emma said taking Harry’s cheeks into her tiny hands and squishing them around, “Some lady said she’s our grandmum!”
He crossed his eyes causing her to squeal, “That’s Nana Anne, silly!”
“Not Nana Anne, daddy,” Logan chimed in while laughing at the silly faces his dad was making, “Her!” I trailed his finger to see that he was pointing to a lady in a blue dress standing by the shore of the water.
“Don’t talk to strangers,” Harry said in a serious tone and then whispered to me, “I’ve never seen her before.”
But I have. I remember that blue dress. The last time I saw it, it was stained crimson red in terrifying places. She turned to see us and gave us a charming smile. She still looked as young as ever, but her eyes were ghostly. I stared at her for a long time. And she dipped her head and her smile grew. She mouthed, “I love you, Y/N.” And my mouth fell open.
“Mum?” I whispered.
“Y/N,” Harry nudged me, “Is everything alright?”
“What?” I said turning my attention to him, “Watch them. I’ll be right back.” I put Logan down and handed his small hand to Harry’s. I waited for them to walk back before turning back to the ghostly woman. I walked over to her slowly. And tapped her shoulder.
“Excuse me?” I found myself saying.
She turned to me with a smile, “Y/N…”
“Mum…is that really you?” I asked.
“Y/N…you’re going to be a great mother,” she said suddenly, “You are a great mother. Don’t doubt yourself. And…I’m sorry if I ever hurt you. I would never want to hurt you or Jason. I love you…”
She swiped the tear that had fallen on my cheek. I shot my head up and she was already gone.
“Hey,” Harry was now by my side, “Is everything alright?”
I turned to her swiftly and looked around, “She was just here…”
“Who?” he furrowed his brows, “What’s the matter?”
“I don’t know…I don’t know what to do,” I said choking on my words.
“Y/N,” he brushed my hair out of my face soothingly, “Y/N…you need to wake up…”
“What?” I said suddenly all my attention was on his words, “Wake up?”
My eyelids were heavy as I pried them open slowly. My vision first foggy and now clear as it focused on the ceiling. It was a dream. It was all dream. It was all just a dream.
I looked down to see that Harry’s forehead was pressed against the mattress. His curls had fallen on my thigh and his hand was rested on my lap. I lifted my hand and stroked his knuckles. His hand twitched under my touch and his head shot up.
“Hey…” I mumbled with my dry throat.
“Hey?” he said with tiredness dawning on his eyelids, “You’re out for 10 hours and all you can say is ‘Hey’?”
“Hey there…” I said with a small smile.
He let out a breath of air, “You had me worried, Y/N.”
“Sorry to scare you…” I mumbled. He stood up and leaned over to kiss my chapped lips.
“I’m glad you’re awake now,” he mumbled against my lips before sitting back down on his seat.
“Where is everyone?” I questioned like in my dream.
“They’re at the hotel. Hospital wouldn’t allow 20 people in the room,” he said with a frown.
“Why the long face?” I said smoothing my thumb over his knuckles.
“I’ve never been so terrified in my life,” he said with red eyes. His head tilted back down as tears fell down onto his jeans.
“Hey, I’m here,” I said soothingly, “I’m okay…”
The doctor stepped into the room. He pressed his glasses up his nose and looked over his clipboard, “Miss O'Donoghue. So glad to hear you’re awake. I’m Dr. Hart. Sorry the results took so long, I had to call your ultrasound technician about your pregnancy.”
“Thank you. Don’t worry about it, Dr. Hart,” I said with a weak smile, “Is everything alright?” I prepared myself for the worse. I knew this was going to come, “Harry, you already know don’t you?”
He shook his head, “Wanted to know if you were going to wake up first…”
“Don’t worry,” he said with a smile, “You didn’t miscarry.”
I squeezed Harry’s hand tightly. I was so happy to hear those words. Harry cried tears of joy this time and squeezed my hand back gently.
“How is that possible?” I questioned, “I mean I’m so happy! But how does that happen?”
Dr. Hart cleared his throat, “You just experienced some breakthrough bleeding. It happens to many pregnant women. It occurs like the menstrual cycle. Many women have very healthy pregnancies while going through this their entire pregnancy cycle. It should stop by the time your 12 weeks.”
“Thank you so much,” Harry said out of relief after finally able to catch his breath, “You have no idea how much this means to us!”
Dr. Hart opened his mouth again, “I’m not finished just yet…”
“What?” I said a bit more scared. Harry turned back at me terrified of what else he was going to say.
Dr. Hart cleared his throat, “You’re having twins!”
A/N: Hope you guys liked it! And yes, breakthrough bleeding is a thing! ;)
