On a cold November month, the crisp morning due drops on the leaves sparkeled in the early morning sun light. Flicky's sang in the tress with their sweet melody sounds. Squirrels forage around the medium tall grass looking around for their hidden acorns. Peace rang throughout the forest like it's never going to end.
A small village could be seen in the distance beyond the trees. It wasn't a big village at all, just a few hut houses here and there with a lot of stores and market places to go and shop. The sound of the morning bell in the high tower rang through the sleepy village. Leting everyone in the village know that it's the start of a new day.
After the early morning thawed out to a cool 65 degrees, a blue flash ran by the village streets. Standing Mobians were almost blown down to their side as they bought merchandise a the markets. "Hey, watch it Commander!" Shouted the shop keeper with a smile. The blue and navy highlighted hedgehog stopped, turned back and ran back to the shop keeper he just ran by.
"Sorry Charley! But I'm in such a rush to see my wife! You see..." Charley inturruped him. "...I know, I know. Your wife is expecting a baby. Congradulations Commander Cezar! Here, I want you to have this." Charley pulled out a bag from behind his stand and handed it to Cezar. "What is this?" Cezar aked grabbing the bag. "My wife made it. It's for your baby girl." Explained Charley with a smile. Cezar opened the bag and pulled out the small clothes from the bag. It was a set of pink pants, a long sleeved shirt, tiny mittens, tiny little boot socks, and a little warm beeny hat to cover the baby's ears form the cold. Everything was all pink and Cezar loved it.
"Thank you so much Charley. I'm sure my wife and the baby will love it." Cezar smiled as he shaked hands with Charley. "Your welcome Commander, any time. Tell your wife hi for me okay?" Smiled Charley. "I will. Bye!" Cezar ran off at the speed of sound blowing away some dirt and the banners form the stores down the street. "Bye." Said Charley in a late fashion.
Cezar ran through the village till it turned to huts. He ran through twists and turns, he passed trees after trees. Finally, he was running up the steps of his house. He burst thought the door, surprising one of his maids. "Sorry to startle you Mary, where is my wife?" Cezar aked as he gently closed the door behind him. "Oh sir, that's okay. Mistress Maria is up stairs in the bedroom resting." Explained Mary as she stopped sweeping the floor. "oh okay thank you Mary." Mary nodded with a smile as Cezar went up the stairs in a steady pace. Once a the top of the steps he walked down the hall to his right, then turned right again to his room. He opened the door and went inside. Ther he was greeted by his beautiful beloved wife sitting on top of the bed with her enlarged stomach. A joyful smile came across her face when she saw him come in.
"Hello my beautiful wife. How are you feeling?" Cezar asked as he sat down at the foot of their bed and smiled at her. "Hey there my beloved husband. I'm feeling fine dear, just a little... crampy." Said Maria putting a hand on her stomach. "Do you think the baby is ready to explore her world now? I mean, it's been nine months now." Cezar put his hand on top of Maria's hankd and looked into his wife's emerald eyes. "I think so... and I know it's been nine months." Maria looked into Cezar's sky blue eyes but looked very worried. "What's wrong dear?" Cezar asked his wife with a gental tone. "I'm worried about birth... I'm scared honey. What if I don't make it? What if something goes wrong?" Maria said in a troubled state of mind. "Don't worry my beautiful flower in the summer breeze. You will be just fine and nothing will go wrong as long as you don't think about it." Cezar said as he commiserated Maria in a soothing manner.
Maria looked down at her stomach feeling a small kick on her belly. A small smile erased her worries away and replaced it with happy thoughts. "I juat felt a kick." Maria said looking up at Cezar with a smile. "Really? Where? Show me." Cezar urged as he gave her his hand. Maria cheerfully took her husbands hand, and placed it where she felt the baby kick.
Cezar waited a couple more seconds then the baby kicked again. A big, warm daddy smile went across his face. "I felt her kick. Wow what a miracle." Siad Cezar looking into his wife's emerald eyes. They sat in silence for the rest of the time being.
