I decided to stop dilly-dallying and get right to the birth
~~~~The big day~~~~
It's been nearly a whole month since the last ultrasound, and 2D was tired of the being inside of him. He was so tired of the kicking as well as the cramps he got FROM the kicking. As he sat on the couch in the Winne, his mind began to roam again. The diaper changing, the child bathing, teaching her manners. "Ugh!" He just wasn't ready. His eyes focused on the clock on the wall, his mind still racing. "Everybody's here wif me...got no camera to see...don' fink 'm all in dis world...da camera won'--" He cut himself off with a yawn. His attention turned to the door as it swung open and the bassist stepped in with a plastic bag. "Oh, 'ey Muds." The bassist smiled and handed the singer the bag. "I jus' went to Taco Bell." Digging into the bag, 2D quickly unwrapped a taco and bit into it. "Mmm. Fanks Muh-doc!" He spoke with a full mouth, making his speech messed up even more. "Yeah..." Sitting on the other side of 2D, Murdoc sighed and watched the singer down the food in an impressive amount of time. "Slow down, Stu...yer gonna choke." A loud burp escaped the vocalist. "S-Sorry, Muds. I was jus' a bit hungry..." The bassist yawned and popped his back. He let out a burp himself, mostly from the Enchilada meal he had earlier. Sniffing himself a few times, the singer grimaced. "I need to take a shower..." Murdoc nodded and got off of the couch to help 2D up. Groaning from the exertion from getting up, 2D waddled to the bathroom and closed the door. Murdoc sighed. "Any day now...and I'll be a fuckin' dad..." He brushed his fingers through his hair. "I don't know if 'm ready." Walking over to get his coat, the bassist grabbed his keys and was about to leave when he heard a crash from the bathroom and 2D's screams. "Stu? STU!" He dropped his keys into his pocket and zipped to the bathroom, swinging the door open in panic. "Wot's wrong?! Why're-" His eyes widened. 2D was on the floor, holding his stomach in pain. "M-Murdoc! 'elp me! It 'urts!" Murdoc noticed a wet spot on 2D's sweatpants. Stepping over the singer's long legs, he helped him to his feet. "Stu, wot's wrong..is it-" A shrill cry of pain escaped 2D's lips. "Yes!" Murdoc felt 2D's fingernails dig into his back as he picked him up. "Don' worry, we're on the way to the hospital." Whimpers were the only responses that the singer could let out. Carrying a shirtless singer out of the Winne, Murdoc hurried himself to the Astra in the corner of the Car park. "Don't worry, Stu." Reaching the car, the bassist placed 2D in the passenger side as he hopped into the driver's seat. Breathing heavily, 2D yelped in pain as the contractions started. "AH!" He clawed the seat, trying to release some of the pain. Quickly starting the car, Murdoc stepped on the gas and went straight down the curvy road, heading directly down the main street."
~~~~After the hassle with traffic~~~~
Murdoc roughly drove into the hospital parking lot, almost crashing. "AH!" The singer's pained screams broke out through the quiet night air. "Muds! Do sumfink!" Growling, the bassist kicked the door open, literally dragging 2D out of the car. "C'mon, legs. Go faster!" He rushed towards the entry of the hospital, panting. "Oi!" Hearing the scream from the waiting room, a nurse dashed behind the desk. "Oh! What's going on?" Irritated at how stupid the woman was, Murdoc yelled out at her in a panicked tone. "Wot d'ya think?! He's in labor for Satan's sake! Do somethin'!" Quick to understand, the nurse rushed into the Emergency room, leaving Murdoc with a screaming 2D. "Stu! Take deep breaths, just like we practiced." Shakey attempts at the breathing techniques were done as the nurse brought a gurney out into the waiting room. "Sir, the surgeon is waiting for him, you can use this to make it an easier way of transport. The room is at the very end of the hall." Thanking her, Murdoc placed the singer on the gurney and hurried past the double doors to the Emergency rooms. "We're almost there, Stu." He watched as the singer grit his teeth in pure anguish. His fingernails dug into the soft cushions of the gurney. "Muds...!" Pushing through another door, Murdoc found a woman waiting by an operation table. The sight nearly frightened him. "Oh! That was quick. Is that Stuart Pot?" The bassist nodded quickly, helping the surgeon set 2D on the table. "Ok. I need you to hold him still while I put an IV in him." He agreed and held down the singer's flailing arms as the surgeon stuck a large needle into his right arm, causing 2D to squeal louder. "Stu, stay still! It'll be over with soon!" The singer yelped in pain once again and started to shake from fear as well. "Muds! 'm scared! Don' let 'er do dis! I don' want a C-section! I don' wanna feel pain! Please Murdoc!" The bassist gulped and watched as a breathing mask was placed over 2D's face. "Wot's that?" The surgeon's voice was quiet and comforting. "It will put him to sleep while the surgery is under way." The singer's eyes slowly began to close, his cries quieting down. "He won't feel any pain during, but I will assign him special medication for him to take after the delivery." The bassist nodded and held the singer's hand while he went into a medicated sleep. "I'm stayin' with him while this is being done." She nodded as she got the tools required for the job out. The sight of most of them made him cringe. They all looked so dangerous. He didn't really want any of them digging into his lover's flesh.
As the surgeon picked up a scalpel, the bassist brought a chair up to the table and sat next to 2D. Murdoc watched as the scalpel was lowered to 2D's abdomen, making him twitch with fear. " He grimaced as the blade dug down into the singer's skin. The surgeon made a clean cut right down the middle of his stomach, some blood drizzling down the sides of it. "Egh...so..he can't feel any of this..right?" She nodded, using skin forceps to fold back the skin. Murdoc instantly turned his head, almost at the verge of puking. "Agh!" The sound of skin splitting made the bassist twitch yet again. The surgeon carefully dipped her hands into the incision. Slowly and painlessly, she stretched the skin out a bit. 2D's hand lazily wrapped around Murdoc's, causing him to looking up at his face. The singer's eyes were closed, his mouth curled into a small frown. Either way, it was cute. He gave his cheek a tender kiss as his eyes darted towards the cut in his stomach. "Geeh..." The noises that the surgeon's hands made while digging into the womb made him sick. "Sweet Satan...'m gonna puke." Just as he was about to spew his guts out, a high pitched whining was heard right beside him. Turning his head, the bassist saw the suregeon pull out a bloody newborn from the giant incision. Murdoc opened his eyes wide at the creature before him, it's shrill crying caused him to get a headache. The rest of the events went too quickly to capture. All he could remember was a nurse rushing in and helping to cut the umbilical cord. After that, the screaming infant was taken out of the room, leaving Murdoc with quiet once again. "Is...is that it?" he watched the surgeon remove her dirty gloves and put on clean ones. She shook her head and grabbed a box, carrying it over to the singer. She set the box down and pulled out a needle and some suture thread. Biting his lip, the bassist watched as she slowly started to suture the incision up, wrapping it up in gauze after. All this time, Murdoc had his hands on 2D's. "Stu?" He lifted one of his hands to the singer's face, moving the hair out of the way. "He won't wake up for another two hours. At this time you will both be able to see your new, healthy baby girl." He turned to face the surgeon as she spoke, and the realization set in. Baby. He was a dad now, a new responsibility for him. "Alright." He placed a gentle kiss on 2D's forehead, leaning back against the chair. "In that case...'m takin' a nap." He saw her nod before he closed his eyes, drifting into a quiet slumber.
The bassist was shaken awake by a tender hand. "Hm? Wot?" He opened his eyes and was face to face with a beautiful nurse, probably in her twenties. "Hello, sir. Your friend is waking up now." She backed up and left the room quickly. Murdoc turned to see the singer moving around on the bed. "Stu?" At the sound of his name, 2D opened his onyx eyes. "Muds...?" Sitting up, he winced in sudden pain. "Ow!" He fell back down onto the bed, holding his stomach. "W-Wot's goin on? The bassist smiled a bit. "Ya went into surgery, luv. Fer the baby." 2D's eyes widened. "Baby?! Where is she? Is she awright?!" Murdoc set a hand on 2D's. "Yes, yes. She's jus' not in here...we'll see 'er in a bit." The singer whimpered. "Muds?...'m not really ready." Patting his hand, Murdoc sighed. "I really ain' either...we'll both have to get used to being...parents." 2D whimpered a bit, trying to lean up. Understanding, the bassist bent down and pressed his lips to the singer's. Both were too busy to notice the nurse return to the room, pushing a clear crib in front of her. When the kiss ended, Murdoc was first to notice the nurse. "Gah!" 2D nearly jumped and turned in the direction that Murdoc was looking. "Oh!" His eyes focused on the crib, seeing a pink bundle of blankets inside. "Muds! Is dat-" The Satanist nodded and still held the singer's left hand. "Yeah...it is." A content yelp of happiness escaped the singer as the nurse took the bundle out and gently handed it to 2D, telling him the proper way to hold a baby. Listening intently, the vocalist held the head of the covered baby up by his arm. Watching it made the bassist happy deep in his cold heart. "Murdoc...ya wanna see?" He nodded and leaned over to look. Suddenly his eyes widened. She was adorable. Her eyes were closed, but her skin was a pale olive-green color. Her hair, what was there, was a light blue.
He just couldn't believe it. "Muds, isn' she adorable?" Not able to find words, the Satanist bobbed his head up and down in a slow nod. "I fink dat she'll be 'appy wif 'er new family..." He smiled and tickled the infant's belly. "Why 'ello dere, 'm yer mum." The only response he got was a few baby noises. "Aww." He laughed a bit, which made his stomach hurt from the recent surgery. "Ahh..." The Satanist smiled, chuckling a bit himself. But, he soon frowned when he heard the child's cries ring through the room. "Wot's wrong? Wot'd I do?" The nurse smiled. "Uh-oh. Sounds like she's hungry." 2D blinked, confused. "Wot do newborns eat?" She laughed. "They drink breast milk." Murdoc held in his laughter at the singer's expression. "B-But, I can' feed 'er like dat, I'm a- Aaiiiee!" He immediately looked down to see the infant trying to get at his chest. "Well." Murdoc chuckled. "There's somethin' there that she wants." 2D groaned and pulled the baby back, nervously unbuttoning the top of the gown. Then, he tugged the material down enough for his bare nipple to be seen. Finally realizing that the singer's chest had swollen some, Murdoc watched carefully as the baby's mouth latched onto the said nipple, suckling on it hungrily. The feeling was unusual to 2D and it made him twitch in discomfort. Murdoc on the other hand, was enjoying the scene in front of him and was disappointed when the baby finally let go, falling right back to sleep. 2D sighed in relief that the moment was over. "Muds. She's so cute. Are we still goin' wif Lucinda?" The bassist nodded, sitting on the edge of the bed. "Yes. How is this, Lucinda Lydia Niccals?" The singer's eyes went wide, a huge smile formed. "It's...perfect!" He giggled and looked down at the baby in his arms. "Lucinda Lydia Niccals...'ow d'ya like it, cutey? Lucinda opened her tiny eyes a bit, making Murdoc gasp. They were the same color as his own. Red and black. He looked as she giggled and cooed with joy. It was official, she was part of the family.
