The door to the house opened. Jack walked into the house, tiptoed up to Rose and grabbed her kwa the waist, and kissed her check. "How was your day?" he asked.
" Fine." Rose replied, fiddling with her engagement ring.
"Just fine? Did anything important happen?"
"Our wedding is in seven months, right?"
"Right, exactly one mwaka to the siku we met, we planned it like that, so what does that have to do with anything?"
"Jack, I'm two months pregnant." Rose said, sounding a little worried.
"Rose! This is amazing! We're going to be parents! " Jack alisema kissing Rose's small bump. "So what does the wedding have to do with this?" Jack asked, still excited.
"In seven months, it is going to about my due date, but I really want to get married to wewe the anniversary of the siku we met, so I was thinking that maybe, if it was okay with you, if maybe we held off the wedding until inayofuata year?" Rose asked. Jack walked up to her and kissed her check, "What ever works for wewe two." he alisema grinning, he bent down and kissed her bump again. "I upendo wewe two."
"And we upendo you." Rose said, kissing him.
Seven months later...
Jack was finishing the final touches to the baby's room. The room was Violet and Baby blue; Rose's two inayopendelewa colors, had white furniture, a purple blanket for the crib, kitanda cha mtoto mchanga and had flowers, hearts, and butterflies painted on the walls in white. Jack was putting the baby's clothes in the bottom drawers, since Rose found it hard to bend down. Rose was lying down on the couch, rubbing her stomach, "Do wewe know that exactly one mwaka today, me and daddy were boarding Titan-" A pain struck her in the side. "JACK!!!!!!!!" Rose yelled out in pain. "It's time!!!!"
Jack ran out of the baby's room."What do wewe need?" Jack asked, panting.
"Towels, lots of towels." Rose alisema in pain. Jack ran to the bathroom and grabbed all of the towels in the closet. "Here." Jack handed her some of the towels and put the rest underneath her. "I'll go call the midwife." Jack alisema as he went for the phone. "Hello, yes my wife is in labour, Uh 115 Chippewa Falls. Thank you." He hung up and went to Rose's side. "She'll be here in ten to fifteen minutes, I'll stay right here while we're waiting , I promise." he alisema kissing her hand.
A knock was at the door, "That must be the midwife." Jack got up and went to the front door. "She's in there." Jack said, walking the midwife into the living room.
"Hello miss, I'm going to help wewe deliver the baby. I see wewe have towels out, that's good." alisema the midwife, sitting down on the couch.
After three hours of contractions, Rose was ready to give birth. Jack was kneeling down kwa her side, holding her hand. After a half saa of screaming; the baby was in the midwife's arms. "Let me go clean her off. Where's the bathroom?"
"Uh, down the hall, to your left." Jack said.
"Thank you." she alisema as she walked down the hall, with the baby wrapped in a towel.
"So, how are wewe feeling?" Jack asked.
"I'm fine, just relieved that she's finally here ." Rose said. "What would you like to name her?"
"Well, I've been thinking and I thought that maybe Rosa would do justice. Don't wewe think?" Jack alisema grinning.
"But Jack, that's not fair to you, she'd be named after me, and without you, I'd be dead." Rose said.
"Yes. And without you, if for some miracle I did survive, I would be living under a bridge!" Jack alisema laughing.
After a pause Rose spoke up,"Can we make a deal?"
"If wewe want." Jack replied.
"How about we keep her first name Rosa, but make her middle name Jackie?"
" wewe drive a hard bargain, but...Deal. Rosa Jackie Dawson. I upendo it." Jack alisema kissing Rose. The midwife walked out of the hallway, holding the baby. "Here wewe go miss." she handed Rose the baby. "Well I must be off, if wewe need any help with the baby au yourself, just give me a call. Good bye." she walked out the door.
"Hi Rosa, how are yo?." Rose asked the baby. All Rosa did was giggle. "Here, go with daddy." She carefully handed Rosa over to Jack. "Hello beautiful,do wewe know wewe look just like your mother?" Jack said, kissing her forehead. "Do wewe want me to go get some clothes for her?"
"Sure." Jack handed Rosa to Rose. He got up and walked off down the hallway, he came back out with a violet dress and a pair of violet slippers to match. Rose took the clothes and put it on her daughter. Jack got up on the kitanda and put his arm around Rose's shoulder, "I upendo you." "And I upendo you." Rose said. She leaned in to kiss Jack, but got interrupted kwa Rosa, "And we upendo you." they said, kissing her forehead.
