Yes, the boat means everything to my family, but we need the money. Got the memories, don’t need the boat. Can’t cry about it.
"Again? I mean, that’s wonderful honey… but I kind of already knew that."
Maria just watched him go the disbelief on her face had shifted into something else and it was a struggle to return his smile. She’d built a life with him, a family, she was expecting twins and yet his mother hated her, that’s what it felt like anyway. She was getting between them at every opportunity and some of the questions she asked Maria felt like personal attacks.
Maria took a deep breath, smoothed out her dress and wiped beneath her eyes where tears had started to form. She pulled out her mobile and invited Harvey and her father over before, setting to work on some baking. Maria’s signature red velvet cakes and then she’d asked Harvey to bring his own signature strawberry cheesecake with him.
”I need to find something I can still fit into.” Maria whispered to the small, very small bump that had started to form. She wasn’t exactly showing but she had put on a fair bit of weight that the Doctor said was perfectly normal.
"Don’t know how I didn’t notice before." Andy intoned, he was watching Maria for a quite a while, arms folded over his chest and body leaning in the doorway. "You were acting weird, avoiding sex, crying for anything… I mean, who cries because of a toothpaste commercial, right? I should have known, should have know. Damn I’m feeling so stupid right now." He uncrossed his arms and walked over to her. "Of course you’re pregnant, what else could it be? You got that motherly glow into your eyes I cannot stop staring." Andy said, running his hands around her waist before giving Maria a soft kiss. "You okay?"
❝…Not quite. But I could deff’ go for a cupcake right about now. I’m gonna see what the snack table has…❞
❝Good luck over there. Kevin is standing guard near the hot dogs, don’t look him in the eye and you’ll be fine. ❞
❝Hey, look, I was pregnant once, and I didn’t get that fat. …And I was pregnant with twins.❞
❝Uhum… Bet she stole your cupcake when you were pregnant and now you’re wanting to take revenge, am I right?❞
❝Yeah, that’s not pregnant fat. Look at her face. That’s “umm the baby made me crave cupcakes” fat.❞
❝Okay, now you’re being incredibly mean. What did she do to you?❞
❝…Oh, fuck, look who just joined the party… —— Behind you, by the door. …She got fat, didn’t she?❞
❝Well, I’m pretty sure it’s because she’s pregnant.❞
"He voices superman or batman or someone , doesn’t he?"
"That is possible, I’m not sure. So, let’s watch it or not?"
"Yeah, he does look like an asshole." She muttered, nodding her head a bit. She stood completely still as he landed besides her, knife against her throat. She remained calm and composed, glancing at him. "You really wanna fuck with the mother of your child?" She snapped, keeping her eyes locked on his as she swiftly jabbed the knife "below his belt".
"He’s not my…" He let out a loud scream as the blade pierced his groin, puncturing woven and flesh and dyeing his pants with a vibrant red. "Bitch!" The demon slapped Ofelia’s face, throwing her against a mirror. "Kill her, NOW!" He ordered the other demons while trying to stop the bleeding.
Ofelia fell back against the mirror, feeling it shatter behind her. She couldn’t help but smirk at her handy-work as she glanced around for the knife. She noticed it bloody and lone on the floor. With a swift move, she rolled over to it, grabbed it and jumped up to the window. She scooped up the dog with one hand, standing by the open window. “Sorry to cut this meeting short, boys.” She shrugged, her back bleeding heavily, though she felt no pain due to the adrenalin. “But I must bid you farewell.” She added quickly before falling back. If she died, so what. She protected her son and daughter to the best of her ability. Maybe being part demon would come in handy. Maybe she’d live…but she felt they were all pointless. She shut her eyes tightly as she went past each floor in the pouring rain.
A winged figure cut the skies and wrapped Ofelia’s body in his arms while she was still falling. Zaphiel looked at her and smiled, there was a divine glow around his whole body and large silver wings coming out of his back. The angel trapped in Andy’s body flew, braving rain and strong winds before finally landing, completely soaked in the hotel parking lot. ”You are crazy.” He told her, but there was a smile on his face. “And you’re bleeding.” Zaphiel noted, glancing at her cuts. Before she could say anything, he wrapped Ofelia in his arms again, healing all her wounds with his powers.
