Inwardly, Kenna groaned, knowing more was going to fall on her. A majority was worried but let the doctor speak trying to remember what he was saying. At five months it was hard with the sickness, swelling, and her memory was fuzzy.
"Thanks doctor," she said holding the information as they left. At least they'd have the prescriptions here. Driving more than needed felt more like a punishment right now.
Taking Kane's hand she gave a small squeeze.
Kane had been feeling horrible the past couple of weeks. He wasn’t able to eat much and when he could his stomach hurt horribly at least he thought it was his stomach. The doctor walked in, “Well kane I have some bad news and some good news, the bad news is your left kidney failed and we need to get it out of there as soon as possible and your right kidney is failing but we may be able to salvage it if we get you on the correct medication and correct treatments.”
Most women lost the morning sickness in the second trimester, she didn't. It continued at an unrelenting pace. Seeing the bump was an annoyance of symmetry though maternal beauty, not that she was maternal.
When he began to see the doctor it was even more strained between her relentless stomach and him.
"Maybe this time there will be a proper answer," Kenna said hopefully, feeling decent enough.
“Your challenging me to a game?” He asked with a smile before pulling her in for a kiss, gently tugging on her bottom lip as he pulled away. “God your beautiful.” He muttered holding her. “I’m the luckiest man alive.” He said sighing and touched her stomach gently. “As many fries as you and Baby Brown want, you’ll get.” He said smiling to her, “I love you more than anything.”
"Not all guys. Most just just work normal hours and days. I always thought I would be a working mom if I did have kids," Kenna shrugged. honestly, if they reversed roles she wouldn't be bothered. She hadn't even thought of the gender, really, didn't care either.
At the end it was nearly tied and lower. "Either we're both equal or really suck. So...how about another game before we get more of these amazing fries."
“The difference here is most men, and I’m speaking from Guys I know, expect the woman to take care of the kids and the house. I don’t, I will be there every step of the way to cook and clean and help take care of Baby brown, I’m ready for the long nights of no sleep, and I know that there’s no way I can ever give you enough to make up for you giving birth to our child.” He said kissing the back of her hand.
"Most marriages are. Struggling together to meet a standard of life, the life they knew gone after kids, people going to roles. I've seen a lot of this over the years. Thought I'd beat them to the punch and save myself the nightmare," Kenna mused despite herself. "Looks like I didn't run far."
She wasn't good at the game, but it was a lot of fun. They were getting to that point of knowing each other without any expectations or chances to change completely.
“Not everything has to be stressful and difficult you know. This...our relationship has been the easiest for me and least stressful relationship I’ve ever been in and I’m happy and I hope your Happy too, if your not please tell me how I can fix that.” He said with a smile to her. He went hitting all the pins but one on the first try and then hitting the last one just barely
"Remember, I'm like a cat. Sometimes I love my space and going to need to have some before there is the sound of cries and feeding every two hours," Kenna smiled finding herself a green ball that fit her fingers perfectly. "And I can join you on some of them. I'd like to see that and more of the country."
Kissing him she waited for him to go first since his name was first. "You know...this is nice...I always thought a serious relationship would be different."
“You know I scheduled the shows to be before Baby brown is born. I want to be home with you and the baby for awhile. Your not doing this alone and I want to spend time with you and our child. So recording next week and the tour, it’s short but I’ll be gone for days at a time. Are you sure you’ll be alright?” He asked kissing her as they bowled, he was okay at it.
"Last Thanksgiving. Nate and I really don't have family we do anything with so, we usually do something like bowling or something simple like that. Go to his place with some friends, play a never have I poker game, and it's all a blur," Kenna mused to him. She was not sure what tales she could tell her child about what she had done.
"This should be fun though," she said. She missed New York and Nate, but she opted to stay this weekend before he started work and more concerts.
Kane chuckled, “I like that.” As soon as the initials were on the screen he snapped a picture and posted it with the caption, “Player 3, Baby Brown On The Way.” He was so proud to be able to announce it even though he knew people would be shocked. “So how long as it been since you’ve been bowling?” He asked her picking up a blue bowling ball, he hadn’t been in a couple of years.
It was at the at the bowling alley when they were entering their initials into the system. Using this system to make the announcement.
"We could have them get another person, and it says player three with the initials BB. It's not cheesy and rather clever," Kenna looked to him with that grin.
Marriage felt rather like a partnership with benefits. She thought it'd feel so different.
“Like I said you’ve made me happier than I have ever been. We might not be perfect but to me this life is the best I’ve had and I love you and Baby brown.” He said kissing her and smiled, “Really? Your ready to make the announcement?” He touched her tiny bump, “How do we do that? I mean a picture? Your ultrasound? Just how do we announce it so it’s not such a shock to people.”
"So, you accept a woman that treated like a game of catch and release? I mean, I won't change my personality, that must have been hard," Kenna looked to him concerned. He didn't need to settle for her, baby or no.
"That sounds amazing. Let's do it," she said kissing him softly. The changes were slower in her but they were happening. She gave a soft sound rubbing her stomach. "Might as well make the announcement."
