5. Chapter 5

I was at the hospital in mere minutes, completely out of breath after running as fast as possible, even with an unborn baby weighing me down. I slammed my hand hardly on the receptionists desk and looked at the nurse who sat behind it.

"Where's...Yukia?" I puffed, looking at the nurse with one eye closed.

"Azami-san?" the nurse recognised me, "You shouldn't be running around or working yourself up. It'll affect your..."

"I know, I know, but I got a phone call from Kushina saying to come here." I waved my hands in front of her in distress, "I can't take my time when I know a friend needs me."

The nurse frowned at me, her eyes narrowing ever so slightly, before she sighed, "Very well. I will lead you to outside her room. I doubt she will want anyone else in there with her at this moment though."

I nodded, "Fine by me. I just want her to know I am here with her."

The nurse's face was stone, not showing the obvious annoyance she felt, as she lead me down the maternity ward, once again. I could hear Yukia in clear distress a few meters from her room.

"Yukia..."I whispered.

Kushina and Mikoto were sitting on chairs outside Yukia's room, Mikoto cradling Sasuke in her arms. The good news is that Mikoto has completely recovered after giving birth and she was a little perkier (even though she has to do the late night feeds). 

"Azami-chan!" Kushina looked up from fidgeting with her hair when she heard me coming.

"Is she Ok?" I asked as the nurse walked away.

Kushina pursed her lips, "I don't actually know. Nobody has allowed us to go in there."

Something seems off... I thought to myself, I remember Yukia saying there was something about her child that seemed a little....unusual. She wasn't sure what it was, but there was something. And she was so eager to find out what it is.

"Does Kakashi-kun know anything?" I askedslightly worried.

Both Mikoto and Kushina shrugged.

"He's always busy. It'll have to wait until he comes back from his missions." Kushina explained.

 

It seemed like forever, even though it had only been a couple of hours. One of the midwives came out of the room and turned to us.

"Yukia and her baby are going to be just fine." she smiled, "She's just a little tired right now."

I let out a deep sigh of relief, "Thank God." I whispered, leaning my head against the wall, If anything were to happen to Yukia I don't know what I would do...

"She wants you all to see her and her little girl." the midwife added, allowing us into the room.

Yukia lay back on the hospital bed, completely exhausted, beads of sweat rolling down her face, but her eyes were streaming with tears, but they were not tears of sadness, more like tears of relief. Deep breaths were making their way into and out of her mouth. She still managed to put on a smile when we arrived.

"Azami-chan. I'm so glad you came...I was worried you wouldn't pick up the phone." Yukia whispered, holding out her hand to me.

I took it and rested my other hand on top of it, "Why would I not have answered? You know I rarely go out anymore."

Yukia laughed slightly, "I am so tired..." she muttered, closing her eyes.

"I'm not surprised. It's been hours." Kushina said, with a small smile on her face.

"Very funny. I'll remind you that when it's your turn." Yukia retorted.

Another midwife came in holding the little girl wrapped in a towel, after having just been bathed.

"Here's your little girl." she stepped forward and allowed Yukia to hold her baby once again.

Yukia's eyes sparkled again as she pulled the towel further from the fragile being's face, "My daughter..." she mouthed stroking her cheek gently.

"Have you thought of a name for her yet?" Mikoto asked, sitting on the end of the bed.

Yukia frowned, "I...I'm not actually sure yet." she muttered, "Azami, what do you think?"

"Why ask me? She's your child." 

"You always have good ideas."

I snorted but smiled again as I looked down at the girl. Her silky soft hair was bright red just like her mother's and I could tell, when she opened her eyes, they were going to be beautiful and large.

Yukia let out another deep breath, just as her breathing went back to normal, "Kushina-san. Could you do me a favour and open the window?"

Kushina immediately obeyed and headed over to the window and opened it a fraction. A gentle gust of wind blew into the room, brushing through everyone's hair and both Sasuke and the new girl's faces. Both shuddered, but something else happened, and it was an incredible moment.

I gasped, "Yukia. Look." I pointed down at the baby, who's eyes screwed up slightly after feeling the breeze.

Then to our shock, her eyes fluttered sleepily before opening all the way. 

My eyes widened, Her eyes....they're of different colour. One's blue, like the sky...and the other....ice white....

"Wow..." I gaped, "Yukia-san, she is gorgeous."

Kushina and Mikoto nodded in agreement, if not a little surprised, just like me and Yukia.

We felt the wind pick up a little and Yukia demanded for the window to be shut again.

"Her eyes opened as soon as she felt the wind..." Yukia whispered, stroking her child again, "I think I have a name for her."

"I think I have the same name you have." I added.

We both looked up at each other and smiled before saying in sync, "Kaze."
