A New Sort of Adventure ~ Tag: Finn/Ember

Image
Not the large stone caverns that Weyr people are used to, these are buildings built on the top of the cliff, sometimes referred to as the Weyr Cliff. These buildings are all the same size, with multiple apartments for dragonriders to live in in each building. Because of space constraints, dragons sleep in large pavilions built around the dragonrider apartments.

"Can I see them? I want to see my babies."

"Of course, sweetie. Let's let them clean her up first." Bast said as he stared down in awe at the tiny crying girl in his arms. She was so perfect. A bit smaller than her brother, but that was to be expected. He moved over to the cleaning station and handed off his little girl to the waiting apprentice so she could give her her first bath. "Go ahead and take him over to her, please." He told the other apprentice who was now holding his swaddled son and was making sweet noises to him. He moved to wash up himself.

"Hang on a second Mommy and Daddy." The other Journeyman said as he waited to deliver the afterbirth. "Finn, I need you push again." Bast quickly moved back over to Finn's side and immediately palpated her stomach. "You think there is another?" He asked increduously. The healer nodded his head. Bast looked at Finn with the first hint of shock since the labor started. Twins were rare enough, but triplets.... However, when he looked for himself it seemed as if the man was right. A crown of shiny, matted hair was what he saw.

What? Another baby? Triplets... Finn had to grit her teeth together. She wasn't sure if she could handle another round of pushing and going through the pain of passing a child, though by now she suspected it would be easier than the first two had been. She looked down at Bast and blinked through her tears, a mix of happy gloss and frustration, and reached for him. "I need you right now, Bast." And she wasn't at all ashamed to admit that she whimpered, because she was so tired, even as her body gave way and she curled and pushed.

With a gasp she fell back again and let her hands fall to the sides of the bed, knowing she still had to push, still had to try. She could do this, she had to do this, and she would make him proud. "Walk through tulips." She exclaimed with a soft wheeze, a teasing remark. She licked her lips and grabbed hold of Bast's shirt. "As much as I would like to have lots of babies with you one day... I don't think I want anymore for a short time." She chuckled and touched her upper lip with her tongue.

And then she nodded, ready. [b]"Can I go again?"
She needed do, dear Faranth she hoped they let her...

Bast immediately moved back to Finn and took a hold of her hand. "I'm right here, dear. It's okay." He couldn't believe this...triplets? Twins were one thing, but three...shards, he should have made her take it so much easier. Not that she hadn't taken it easy enough especially with his mother-henning. He wiped her brow again with a cool cloth. "This should be the last one, dear. You can do this." Bast spoke with confidence. However, he didn't seem as sturdy has he had been before. Needless to say he was rather shocked by the fact of triplets and he had no idea what would happen with this third baby.

"Go ahead, Finn, push." The other healer told her. This one didn't take as much effort of pushing as the first two, but that was not necessarily a good thing. It wasn't long before the journeyman caught the infant. However, instead of an exclamation of what it was and the sounds of cries, the healer quickly cut the cord and then rushed over to one of the exam tables and began to do something that neither Bast or Finn could see.

Every instinct in Bast wanted to run over there too, but he stayed by Finn. He watched closer and could tell immediately what the healer was trying to do. He hugged Finn close to him, having a feeling he knew what was to come next. After a moment he stopped and swaddled the small infant before picking it back up. He turned back to Bast and Finn and walked towards them, lips pressed in a thin line. He gave a small shake of his head. "I'm sorry. I don't know if it was lack of nutrients or...I'm so sorry. This happens sometimes with multiples."

Bast looked sorrowfully at Finn and leaned in to press a kiss against her forehead. To try and distract from the one loss, the apprentices brought over their first two and handed them off. They were both fussing and angry. "Here, let me help. Do you want to feed them one at a time or both at once?" Bast asked as he helped to position their little boy for his first meal. He was sad, very sad, but he'd seen this enough times to not be truly devastated, not when they had two beautiful living babies that needed love and attention.

There was something wrong, she knew there was, and she wanted nothing more than to know what was wrong. A third baby was supposed to be something special, not quiet, and there was nothing but a bitter silence hanging in the air. The fact that it stretched so long told her that there was something not right, and when the healer turned to speak, she burst into tears and leaned into Bast, knowing if it weren't for him, she wouldn't be able to hold onto the babies that were pressed against her in those weak first few moments as a new mother.

Slowly she took in a deep, shuddering breath, knowing she had to be strong. It happened, she knew that as a healer, and the twins were at least healthy and thriving. She needed to be thankful about that at least. But there was a chill in her heart she was having a difficult time shaking. "I want to feed them both, Bast. They need their Momma, and that's what I'm here for." As they latched on, held in her arms, she felt such relief she started to cry again, this time from happiness, and she looked up at her weyrmate with a what was the beginning of a water-logged smile.

But then she sobered, considerably, and she pressed her forehead against him as the babies suckled hungrily from her. She needed to tell him her wishes before the healers had someone else do it. It wouldn't be right otherwise. "Bast... I need you to take the baby... I need you to take care of them for me. Please. I don't want someone else to do it."
