The Shadow Realm Chronicles: Maeve Chapter 11 Maeve and Hunter at home



She herself was a doctor. She loved her job and cared for many patients since graduation. Her lab coat hung on the coat rack in the corner. They were both successful and happy. This evening Maeve had some very important news to share with him. She looked at her belly and took her hand and rubbed it “I can’t wait to tell daddy all about you” She said.

The door opens, Maeve couldn’t contain her excitement she kept going over how to tell him.

She thinks “No I can’t wait that long.” Her face was glowing and her smile gave her almost everything away.

He smiled “You are so beautiful and today you look like an angel.”

She blushed. “Well I had an excellent day.”

He took his coat off and hung it on the coat rack. He looked over at Maeve. She smiled as she walked over to him. He turned to her and kissed her. “Dinner smells wonderful. Why don’t you tell me all your excellent day and I will tell you about mine?”

He pauses trying to figure out how to describe his day, “Interesting day at court.” He goes into the kitchen and opens a bottle of wine and pours two glasses of red wine. She stood in the doorway watching him. He places two glasses of wine on the table as Maeve prepared their plates.

“So tell me!” she said “What’s was so interesting about your day.”

They sat down next to each other and she places her hand on his and he says grace. “Dear Lord, we thank you for the food we are about to receive, and for the nourishment to our bodies.”

They sat down next to each other and she places her hand on his and he says grace. “Dear Lord, we thank you for the food we are about to receive, and for the nourishment to our bodies.”

The older Maeve watched them. She walked around her table in her mind the images were going back and forth between the past and the present. The contrast of the warm bright table where two people loved each other and held hands, with the dark grey barren table that laid before her.

He looked up “We had a man on the stand today who claimed someone turned him into a frog and that was the reason he couldn’t have robbed the bank.”

Maeve laughed, but she tried to hid it. Hunter continued “Strange things have been occurring all over town.”

Maeve looked up at him, “There are always strange things going on if are open to them.”

Hunter smirked “Maeve you should have seen the look in his eyes. He believed this.”

Meave wondered why Hunter had forgotten about her magic. Did he lock it all away? Did he forget what she was?

“Oh come on, he was trying to get out of trouble. He would have said he believed in the tooth fairy, the Easter bunny, and who knows what else.” Maeve laughed.

Older Maeve laughed to herself.

“I don’t know Maeve, strange things are happening all over town.” He said again.

She looked over at her glass of wine, not touching it. ”

Hunter looked at her, “No wine for you tonight?” As he had a sip of his.

Maeve smiles “No dear, a woman in my condition shouldn’t drink alcohol.”

Hunter looked up, “A woman in your condition?”

Maeve blushed. She looked up at Hunter. “I went to the doctors today.” She looked at him wondering if she had to spell it out for him or if he understood.

Hunter looked worried “You’re not sick are you?” He put his hand on hers and squeezed it.

Maeve laughed and squeezed his hand back. “No, silly. I’m pregnant.”

Hunter looked up, he was not expecting this. “I’m going to be a father.” He moves his hand off of her hand and to his mouth and said again. “A father.” He looked at Maeve, “We will be parents!” Hunter jumped out of his seat and got on his knees next to Maeve. With a gentle touch, he moves his hand over her belly. “Oh Maeve, you will be the best most beautiful mother the world has ever seen.”

Maeve put her hand over his as he held her stomach. “I can’t believe it either. There is a baby growing inside of me. It’s amazing and overwhelming all at the same time. It’s the best of you and the best of me.” She smiled and looked into his eyes.

“I love you Maeve.” He kissed her. “Maeve, I love you with everything I have. I will love you and our baby for all of my life.”
