Attention: When am I going to get this Patriarchy started!? >_< Sorry this chapter is rather lacking in text.
“Daddy, daddy! I have a sistew!” Hitomi’s voice was like music to my ears, both at her not running out on me with Sadie and also the fact that I had a daughter; another, beautiful daughter. Hitomi ran into my arms and I scooped her up instantly and hugged her tightly as a doctor soon approached us.
“Marrick Dubois?” He questioned and I nodded hastily and he continued, “Congratulations, you have a new baby girl,” he continued and my heart stopped, relief falling all around me and I smiled, holding Hitomi tight and asking him if Sadie and the baby were alright, getting lost in my thoughts on the fact that I wanted to ring his neck for seeing a part of Sadie that was solely mine since I assumed he was the one that birthed my new daughter, without me.. He assured me she was okay and I walked into the room and saw Sadie’s glowing face along with a hint of sweat as she looked down to a baby within her arms.
Sadie looked to me and I didn’t have words for the look in her eyes as she looked to the excited expressions both Hitomi and I gave her. “Anya,” She cooed softly and I kissed Hitomi’s cheek, soon walking up to Sadie and looking down at my new daughter.
It was now the third happiest moment of my life, and I smiled happily as I played with Anya in our room, remembering back on the time at the hospital two years ago when she was born. Hitomi was getting older and I didn’t want her to grow up any more, I wanted her to stay the same small size she was. Anya was already growing up so fast and today was her 2nd birthday; I remembered back to Hitomi’s second birthday and she was just as cute then as she was now, I didn’t want either of my girls to grow up. What’s more exciting is that Sadie is pregnant again, about a month in, too. I’ve grown more comfortable with the thought of having a son, I simply just kept telling myself that the girls turned out so much like Sadie, why wouldn’t the boy do the same?
Sadie joined Marrick in their room holding Hitomi and Marrick walked over to them, planting a kiss on Sadie’s lips and they watched as Hitomi touched Anya’s hand and greeting her. Sadie was glowing with happiness as she held Hitomi and made baby faces towards Anya, making her laugh and Marrick was unable to wipe the smile off his lips. “The cake is ready, is Anya?” Sadie asked eventually. Marrick nodded his head ‘yes’ and kept his smile, watching Sadie begin to leave the room and he instinctively followed her.
Sadie was always so excited when the girls aged up, always the first one to break out the noise makers and the balloons. Sadie brought Hitomi to her high chair and set her inside, Marrick joining them and bringing Anya to her birthday cake so she could blow out the candles. “Yay! Yay!” Hitomi called out while clapping and Sadie gave excited giggles as Marrick lit the candles, leaning over and helping Anya blow them out.
Anya turned out perfect, Marrick looking her over and noticing that she got Sadie’s long blonde hair, but her face was long like his with the same nose, lips and eyes. “Wow, she looks just like you,” Sadie said to Marrick with a warm smile and Marrick chuckled.
“Yeah, she really does. She has your beautiful golden hair, though,” he replied and she blushed slightly, going to Hitomi and lifting her within her arms from the high chair.
“Now that she’s getting older, she’s going to be going to school with you, and with you being the big sister, you need to look out for her,” Sadie said to Hitomi and Hitomi made a determined expression, understanding her duty and taking it with pride as Marrick chuckled to her behavior.
Sadie brought Hitomi over to Marrick and Anya, “Would you mind taking her? I don’t feel too well,” Sadie began and Marrick grew concerned for her but understood, finally aware of her pregnancy the third time around and beginning to understand how it made her feel and act. He took Hitomi with a smile and watched Sadie leave the room, going to the restroom and Marrick made his way upstairs with the two girls.
Hitomi and Anya played with blocks and colored together, getting along instantly and Marrick watched them play, wondering to himself if he was destined to only have girls and he hated admitting to himself that he was starting to want a boy just as much as Sadie did. It took a long time for Sadie to get Marrick comfortable with the idea of having more children with her, and slowly but surely she was able to get him to like the idea. Sadie even compromised for Marrick, saying that the day they have a son is the day they stop having kids, causing Marrick to be a little weary still, but he soon gave in and agreed. Sadie then insisted they try for more after Anya had reached Hitomi’s age, wanting to keep the children roughly two years apart from one another so they could focus on aging their children up properly in their early years.
Marrick kept his smile as he watched the girls, Hitomi’s genius side coming through and wanting to teach Anya everything correctly with the blocks, showing her which ones went into which slots. Her artistic side came through as well, assisting Anya in telling her about colors and which ones went best to color each picture. But, with Anya being a genius as well, she took Hitomi’s words and absorbed them instantly, catching on and understanding all that her big sister was teaching her.
Sadie soon eventually joined in with the family and Marrick was happy to see that she was okay, watching her walk over to the girls and they looked to her with big wondrous eyes. “It’s time for bed, girls,” she announced and they grew discouraged, contesting to Sadie’s word and not really listening. They began to make a fuss, and when Hitomi did, Anya copied her and didn’t want to go to bed as well.
Sadie was getting frustrated and looked to Marrick for assistance and him being happy to help, “What did your mother just say?” He more so demanded than asked, their fathers deep and somewhat scary tone caused them to stop pouting and he walked over to them, picking up Hitomi and then Anya. Sadie took Anya to assist him and tickled her, trying to cheer them up after getting scolded by their father and it began to work.
“We’ll play all day tomorrow, Mommy doesn’t have a thing to do and we can do whatever you girls want,” Sadie added and they soon grew happy, now welcoming their slumber and they couldn’t wait to get to bed.
The full moon shined brightly into the girls room from behind the clouds as Marrick and Sadie got them ready for bed, deciding to combine their rooms into one and not really wanting Anya to sleep in their room anymore now that she was older. Hitomi didn’t agree at first, wanting her own room and not wanting to share, but Marrick made it clear that that what was happening, so Hitomi just had to get used to it. Sadie changed Anya first into her pajamas and wished her goodnight as Marrick changed Hitomi into hers. “Goodnight, Birthday girl,” Sadie cooed sweetly.
Marrick brought Hitomi to her crib and said goodnight to her, Sadie and him then exchanging cribs and saying goodnight to the other and exiting the girls’ room, turning the light off and walking to their own.
The moment they got into their room, Marrick shut the door and brought Sadie into his arms, kissing her passionately and she melted within his grasp. He still enjoyed the occasional forced kiss he put her through simply because of how she always reacted to it, as if it was their first kiss each time and she was still able to make him weak in the knees. Marrick barely ever said those three little words the Sadie adored so much, and he felt as if this was a good time to say it to her, but as he pulled away from the kiss and looked to her, the connection their eyes made said it without him needing to utter a word.
He didn’t mind all daughters, the ones he had now were simply amazing and he was perfectly fine with having more girls just like Hitomi and Anya. Marrick couldn’t wait for their new baby to be born, mostly hoping it was a boy so they could stop having kids, but also wanting it to be a girl and he couldn’t make up his mind; but there was something in the back of his head still constantly screaming at him that once he would have a son, it would be the death of them all.
