Gen. 1, Chapter 7: I've Waited So Long to Hear You Say That

If you are 12 years old or under, please get a parent's permission before reading my blog. Thanks!

*Kristine's POV*

Lately, I've been frustrated. It's not because of the triplets, who are already four years old, and it's not the house, but it's because I want more kids. If I could just have one more baby, I'd never be pregnant again. But I knew Marley wouldn't appreciate it. After he got home from work, I met up with him on the couch while Celesta, July, and Elizabeth were asleep.

"Marley, we need to talk."

"About what, sweetheart?"

"Well, I want to have another baby." There was a long pause until Marley spoke up.

"If you want to, sure..."

I smiled, "I've waited so long for you to say that."


It's been a few months, and once again I was pregnant, but with a little boy Marley and I already pre-named Kyle. The girls were also excited about their new baby brother coming soon.

 But the dream came to reality when I was in the hospital, about to give birth to baby Kyle. Marley made a funny joke about how there would be more testosterone in the house once Kyle was born.

After hours of painful labor, Kyle Abraham Vilas was born at 6 pounds, 7 ounces. Once we were home, everyone was tired.

But Kyle was a blessing, he babbled and made noises all day, but only the opposite of Celesta, who can now speak in basic, 2 year old phrases, but she was making progress for a four year old with a speech impairment.

Later, I got a phone call from the doctor unexpectedly.

"Hello, Mrs. Vilas. I should've told you this earlier, but..."


"We've detected breast cancer cells in your body. Please come to the hospital as soon as possible, okay?"

  1. I'm finding you are always trying to surprise us in the last lines of your posts. I'm not sure why but I think you need something that leads up to it more rather than just trying to throw it on your readers. I was looking forward to finding out what was wrong with Kristine's other child. You never covered that in this post. Your writing is good, I think there just needs to be something more...I feel like its lacking something it really needs.

    Good job though :)
