All her life Rebecca Mader had loved children, she had loved interacting with babies and imagined dreaming of meeting the right guy and having a beautiful daughter. When she was 15 she already had her daughter's name picked out. "Mikayla Dawn". When Bex was was 33, she met and married Sean Maguire . They couldn't wait to raise their family together.....


7. The New Beginning

I bear down and squeeze Sean’s hand. I was afraid that he wasn’t going to make it but I was happy he was here now. I give one last mighty push and nearly faint when it breaks. I hear the loud cry of a baby as I give life and Lana puts my newborn infant on my chest. Sean kisses my head then kisses the baby’s head.

“What is it Bex?”

“It’s a girl, we have a daughter.”

“She’s beautiful. She’s so tiny.”

“She is so tiny isn’t she?”

“Yes, she’s so tiny.”

         After a few moments of stroking my daughter’s head and back the nurse takes her to clean her up and get her breathing normally. Her skin is red and she’s about a foot long. The nurse takes her and Lana finishes up the delivery process.

“What time was she born?”

“6:07pm on March 28.”

“She’s so perfect.”

“What’s her name?”

“Mikayla Dawn Mader Maguire.”

“That’s the most beautiful name I’ve ever heard.”

         Lana kisses my head and leaves the room. The nurse hands me back my baby and Sean pushes the bed up so I can hold her. I hold her close to me and stroke her face. She opens her eyes and I see that they’re a bright blue. They were my eyes.

“Bex she has your eyes.”

“She has your nose.”

“She has your ears.”

“Sean, she has your nose, your smile, your hair and your dimples.”

“I’m sure she has your laugh and your giggle. She has your eyes and ears.”

         I kiss my baby’s head and then carefully pass her over to Sean. He holds her and smiles.

“Remember when we were actors, trying to get through college. Remember OUAT?”

“Sean that was so long ago, I was trying to learn the script and learn the anatomy of the human body.”

“Remember the scene when Zelena had baby Robin, Robin took his daughter like I am. And Lana was there too.”

“Don’t remind me, that was my acting career, then I decided I had so much more to give the world. I’m a doctor now.”

“I know…”

 Lana comes in as Sean’s putting Mikayla into her bassinet. She’s carrying two pink balloons and a teddy bear. She puts the teddy bear at the edge of Mikayla’s bassinet and ties the balloons to Sean’s chair. She then gives me a hug and turns to Mikayla.

“May I hold my niece?”

“Yes, you can.”

         Lana picks Mikayla up and holds my daughter in her arms.

“Hello little Miky Mouse, I’m your Auntie Lana. That over there in the bed is your mummy and that man is your daddy. Your mummy waited a long time for you. When we were kids she said if she ever had a daughter, she was going to name her Mikayla Dawn and I said I would name her Miky Mouse.”

“I remember you saying that. It was on the set of OUAT and I was having Sean’s TV baby. We were talking about it.”

         Lana carries Mikayla to the other side of the room and views the distance from the window.

“This little mouse is your home, this is your world. This is your family. You’ll be here a very long time. You’ll grow up and you’ll save your mommy.”

         I’m crying as Lana puts Mikayla back in her bassinet and then kisses my daughter’s cheek. Lana gives me a hug and gives Sean one too. It’s hard for Lana, her and Sean were once a couple. Things happen and people change. Lana still never found her happy ending. Lana leaves and so does Sean.

‘I want to get home and set up her nursery some more. I thought we would have longer, I’m going to go finish.”


         Sean kisses my cheek and gives Mik a kiss.

“I love you princess. Daddy loves you.”

         Sean walks out the door and I’m left alone with my new little princess. I call for a nurse to come give her to me. The nurse hands me my beautiful little baby and I begin to feed her. She latches on and begins nursing almost immediately. The nurse speaks.

“Isn’t this just a perfect happy ending.”

“It’s a happy beginning and I’m going to cherish every moment. I have stage four cancer and its terminal. I’m going to cherish every moment I have with my daughter.”

“Well my apologies but we have to take her down to the nursery. She’s needs her checkup and her vaccines. It’s also time for us to take her downstairs to sleep. You’re a new mother and you need your rest.”

         I kiss my daughter bye and hand her over to the nurse. I’m alone, I’m all alone. No sister, no husband and no daughter. I’m alone and I’m dying. At least in a few days I would be home with Sean and Mikayla. We would be the perfect little family.
