9. The accident


3 weeks later


"Oh Kate she is just beautiful". I watch as Kate places Mirabella in my sisters arms. Shekinah has come out for a couple of days with my father to visit and to meet our little girl.

 Kate smiles so proudly. She is such a great mother and I love her more every day, seeing how she cares for our little girl. "Thank you. And she is just so easy".

 "Well there is no doubt who her father is. Not with that head of curls". Shekinah says and looks at me and I can't help smiling. "Yeah poor little thing. I had hoped she would take after her mother. Well we justnhavento buy her some pretty clothes then".

 "Zac !" My sister and my wife says at the same time, glaring at me and my father laughs at me expense. But luckily they are back to cooing at Mirabella pretty quick leaving me of the hook.

 I sit down next to my father and he smile at me padding my leg. "Youmhad me worried when you suddenly ran out here. But I am so proud of you son. You done really good here and I can see you are happy".

 "Thanks dad. Oh now you have me crying". I say drying a tear away. But my father is right. This is like a dream. My life is perfect and I have everything I ever dreamt of.

 Mirabella starts crying and my sister makes a face. "Uhh someone has made something not very pretty and not very princess like in her diper".

 Kate is about to take her, but I get up. "Let me". I walk over to gently take my daugther from my sisters arm. As I hold her to my shoulder she stops crying and justnlooks at me with her big dark eyes. "Come on gum drop, lets go clean you up".

 "Wow you either trained him really well or my brother is even better at being a father than I expected". I hear my sister say as I walk out and I chuckle to myself when I hear Kate. "Believe my I am amazed he haven't tried breastfeeding her yet".

 "Oh so you gone and dirtied your diaper did you ?" I gently put her down in the changing station. Keeping a hand softly on her stomach as I get a clean diaper and some wet naps. I don't want to risk her turning over and falling down. I would never forgive myself if anything happened to her.

 I open the diaper. Yup she definately made something not very ladylike. Luckily she is still on a full breastmilk diet and it mostly smells like slightly sour milk. I lift her gently and remove the diper. Cleaning her gently. Making sure nothing is left. Then I put on the clean diper and lift her up on my shoulder. "There you go gum drop. All clean and ready to make an impression on the world". 

 I throw the dirty diaper into the diaper pail and walk back downstair. "The princess has been changed and cleaned. I think she might be hungry now. You want me to give it a try ?" I ask Kate winking.

 "You are to cheeky for you own good mister". She says as she comes over and takes Mirabella from my arm. She sits down puts our baby girl to her breast. It is amazing what a womans body can do honestly.



 "There you are baby girl". I buckle her into the car seat. Then I feel Zac's arms slide around me from behind and I turn to face him. Stretching up to kiss him softly. He is such an amazing husband and father I can't even describe it.

 "Are you sure you don't want me to come with you ? I could take care of her while you and Shekinah are shopping and stuff". He asks.

 I smile at him. "Stay here and spend some man time with your father. Take him visit my father or something. Drink a couple of beers. No diaper changes for a few hours. You deserve a break". 

 I am about to go into town with Shekinah to look at stores, have lunch at a cafe and spend a little girls time out. We are bringing Mirabella because it is just much easier with her still eating pretty often. But Zac has a hard time letting us go.

 "Okay you girls go have fu ". He kisses me and then he goes to kiss our daugther on the forehead. "Hey gum drop look after you mom and make sure she don't spend all daddys money".

 We drive into town and I put Mirabella in her baby carriage. We go into a few stores and I buy a couple of things for Mirabella. I know Zac wont mind. Actually I don't he would mind no matter what I bought, but I would never take advantage of that.

 We go sit at a cosy little curb side cafe. Getting a bit of lunch and chatting. It is nice to have a real girls talk for once. And I really like Shekinah, she is like a sister to me.

 Suddely when we are about to get up I hear people yelling and screaming. Shekinah turns her head and gasps. "Oh God no".

 And then I see it. It is a big car and clearly out of control. It is coming right towards us and in a matter of seconds it is going to smash into Mirabella's baby carriage. I throw myself towards it and pushes her out of the way.

 Then I feel the blinding pain and I feel myself getting throw into the air. I hear scream. Then everything comes rushing down. I feel someone grabbing my hand. "Kate. Oh God Kate can you hear me ?"

 "Is she okay ? Is my baby okay ?" It is almost impossible to speak but I have to know.

 "Yes. You saved her. She is fine. Now relax Kate. Help is on the way". I hear Shekinah say. I am happy my baby is okay. I know Zac will take care of her. So I let go of the pain and with that comes silence and blackness.
