The door to the house opened. Jack walked into the house, tiptoed up to Rose and grabbed her by the waist, and kissed her check. "How was your day?" he asked.
" Fine." Rose replied, fiddling with her engagement ring.
"Just fine? Did anything important happen?"
"Our wedding is in seven months, right?"
"Right, exactly one year to the day we met, we planned it like that, so what does that have to do with anything?"
"Jack, I'm two months pregnant." Rose said, sounding a little worried.
"Rose! This is amazing! We're going to be parents! " Jack said kissing Rose's small bump. "So what does the wedding have to do with this?" Jack asked, still excited.
"In seven months, it is going to about my due date, but I really want to get married to you the anniversary of the day we met, so I was thinking that maybe, if it was okay with you, if maybe we held off the wedding until next year?" Rose asked. Jack walked up to her and kissed her check, "What ever works for you two." he said grinning, he bent down and kissed her bump again. "I love you two."
"And we love you." Rose said, kissing him.
Seven months later...
Jack was finishing the final touches to the baby's room. The room was Violet and Baby blue; Rose's two favorite colors, had white furniture, a purple blanket for the crib and had flowers, hearts, and butterflies painted on the walls in white. Jack was putting the baby's clothes in the bottom drawers, since Rose found it hard to bend down. Rose was lying down on the couch, rubbing her stomach, "Do you know that exactly one year today, me and daddy were boarding Titan-" A pain struck her in the side. "JACK!!!!!!!!" Rose yelled out in pain. "It's time!!!!"
Jack ran out of the baby's room."What do you need?" Jack asked, panting.
"Towels, lots of towels." Rose said in pain. Jack ran to the bathroom and grabbed all of the towels in the closet. "Here." Jack handed her some of the towels and put the rest underneath her. "I'll go call the midwife." Jack said as he went for the phone. "Hello, yes my wife is in labour, Uh 115 Chippewa Falls. Thank you." He hung up and went to Rose's side. "She'll be here in ten to fifteen minutes, I'll stay right here while we're waiting , I promise." he said kissing her hand.
A knock was at the door, "That must be the midwife." Jack got up and went to the front door. "She's in there." Jack said, walking the midwife into the living room.
"Hello miss, I'm going to help you deliver the baby. I see you have towels out, that's good." Said the midwife, sitting down on the couch.
After three hours of contractions, Rose was ready to give birth. Jack was kneeling down by her side, holding her hand. After a half hour of screaming; the baby was in the midwife's arms. "Let me go clean her off. Where's the bathroom?"
"Uh, down the hall, to your left." Jack said.
"Thank you." she said as she walked down the hall, with the baby wrapped in a towel.
"So, how are you feeling?" Jack asked.
"I'm fine, just relieved that she's finally here ." Rose said. "What would you like to name her?"
"Well, I've been thinking and I thought that maybe Rosa would do justice. Don't you think?" Jack said grinning.
"But Jack, that's not fair to you, she'd be named after me, and without you, I'd be dead." Rose said.
"Yes. And without you, if for some miracle I did survive, I would be living under a bridge!" Jack said laughing.
After a pause Rose spoke up,"Can we make a deal?"
"If you want." Jack replied.
"How about we keep her first name Rosa, but make her middle name Jackie?"
" You drive a hard bargain, but...Deal. Rosa Jackie Dawson. I love it." Jack said kissing Rose. The midwife walked out of the hallway, holding the baby. "Here you go miss." she handed Rose the baby. "Well I must be off, if you need any help with the baby or yourself, just give me a call. Good bye." she walked out the door.
"Hi Rosa, how are yo?." Rose asked the baby. All Rosa did was giggle. "Here, go with daddy." She carefully handed Rosa over to Jack. "Hello beautiful,do you know you look just like your mother?" Jack said, kissing her forehead. "Do you want me to go get some clothes for her?"
"Sure." Jack handed Rosa to Rose. He got up and walked off down the hallway, he came back out with a violet dress and a pair of violet slippers to match. Rose took the clothes and put it on her daughter. Jack got up on the couch and put his arm around Rose's shoulder, "I love you." "And I love you." Rose said. She leaned in to kiss Jack, but got interrupted by Rosa, "And we love you." they said, kissing her forehead.
