Snip

“Natasha, listen to me,” Dante said, taking a breath when he realized that the camera’s on the ceiling were pointing away from them as they descended. “This is no escape.......” He heard footsteps coming from down the hallway in front of them and around the corner. “Damnit,” he swore, and turned to a door they had reached in their flight.

“Will you stop whipping me around,” Natasha said slightly annoyed. So far all Dante had done on this little expedition was fling her about and drag her around one corner after another. “I do not mind running but it is a game so can we slow this down,” she started to huff.

Hitting the control next to the door, he was relieved when it slid open. Clearly they didn’t think that they needed more stringent security outside of the rooms that they had been kept in. While the door only took a second to open, it was almost too slow as he pulled Natasha through and turned, slapping the control on the inside and letting it close. The lights had come on straight away, revealing the room was filled with medical equipment, and a single bed with a high back in the middle of the room.

Finding her feet, Natasha spun around and brushed some hair out of her eyes. “That’s it. I am not doing anything else until you stop being so competitive,” Natasha growled and leaned against a cabinet focusing on him.

The footsteps they had heard ran past the door and got quieter as they headed away, and Dante turned from the door and took hold of Natasha’s shoulders. “Baby this isn’t an escape room,” he told her, “listen, okay, we aren’t in the hotel. I don’t know..” Dante paused now as his eyes went passed Natasha to the far wall, where a large fish lazily swam past the window, it’s one eye looking in at them with as much curiosity as Dante looked back at it with surprise. “A fish.”

“Because we are on that,” Natasha shot back angrily but stopped not able to complete her sentence. “We are,” she stumbled for words. Looking around the room she tried to put together what she knew. “We were in the hotel,” she started to get a blank stare. None of this made sense. “Are we in a ship,” she asked walking to the window looking out. Seeing the fish she looked back at Dante, Natasha took a deep breath. Walking over to the drawers she began to open them.

“What are you looking for?” He asked her, walking to the window himself and looking out at the water beyond for a moment. “Are you listening now Nat, remembering? No ship is going to be on an underwater reef, on Erewhon.” He turned back and took the few steps to reach her.

“We need to find a tricorder,” she said searching the drawers. “I don’t know why I am not remembering but it has to be pharmacological. If I know what it is I can find an antidote,” she felt herself getting edgy. Natasha did not like the idea something was keeping her and Dante from understanding what was going on. “Dante, help me,” she said rooting through another drawer.

Taking another cabinet he began to open drawers, flicking through a multitude of familiar looking Federation equipment. “Here,” he said as he opened a drawer lower down and took out a standard Federation Issue medical tricorder. “I don’t know why we can’t remember anything except our hotel room, take a scan of yourself Natasha, and this.” He handed the tricorder to her and gently placed a hand on her belly.

“I’m going to see if the consoles here have any information.”

Natasha scanned herself and slumped against the wall. Her eyes were wide and she slowly licked her lips trying to moisten her mouth so that she could speak. “Dah,” she tried and then stopped. It was as if the words were caught in her throat and could not surface. She could feel her pulse quicken and felt dizzy. Clearing her throat she took a deep breath. Locking her eyes on Dante’s back she took a moment to steady herself. Finding him always calmed her in moments like this. She looked at his broad shoulders and let her eyes trail down his body. It wasn’t a suggestive look in any way but more as if she was looking at him for the first time. In some ways, it was as if she was looking at him for the first time.

She had known Dante Alighieri Knight for fifteen years. So many times she debated on how to tell him things but this was the first time she was truly at a loss for words. “Dan..te,” she tried again to say his name and draw his attention away from the console.

“Yes?” He replied, looking up for a small moment but then returning his attention to the console he was working on.

“Dante,” she nervously fiddled with the tricorder. “I’m pregnant,” she said finally getting a hint of a smile. It was not that she wasn’t happy. She had wanted this more than anything and yet every specialist had told her it was not going to happen. A baby was off the cards but here she was, pregnant with his baby. “I’m having a baby,” she said finally finding her voice. With each sentence, the happiness in her words became more and more apparent.

That made him stop and look up quickly. He said nothing at first, just blinked a few times as he processed it. It was clear that something wasn’t right looking at the bump in Natasha’s belly that wasn’t there the last time he remembered looking, but the confusion of the how was buried by the excitement of the huh?. As he looked at her, and his mind processed the news, he smiled.

“Pregnant?” He left the console and walked over to her. “Ok I’m not going to ask how, I know how that happens. I thought that, you couldn’t? Or it wasn’t going to happen?” Dante came to a stop beside her and put his arm around her waist, then kissed her forehead before looking down at the tricorder.

“How long Tasia? We’re having a baby!?”

Captain Knight, CO

“Yes,” Natasha grinned forgetting the situation they were in. “We are having a baby.” Turning the tricorder around it displayed not the customary plus or minus as home kits but a series of number and words that Dante could only assume meant You’re pregnant in doctorese. “I can’t be exactly sure until I run some more tests but it seems like …you are going to be a daddy,” she half squeaked out the words and held her arms out. At this moment there was only one thing on Natasha’s mind. She didn’t care where they were or how they got here. Everything she ever wanted was in this room. They had tried for so long to have a baby yet weeks and months of disappointment was the only reply she ever had gotten until now. Nat felt dizzy as she wrapped her arms around Dante.

“We are going to have a baby,” she said softly and moved to kiss him. She had no words. Nothing to say. Time slowed down and for a brief second only they existed in the entire universe.

Dante was stunned, so stunned that for a brief moment he just stared at her as her words sunk in and she moved in to kiss him. Time seemed to halt, and it wasn’t until her lips touched his, the smallest and most gentle feeling of her soft lips against his that the reality of what she was saying rushed through him like a jolt of electricity. At her touch, his arms curled around her and pulled her close to him protectively and passionately. Dante pressed his own lips against hers with a love that while normally full of passion and fire for the woman that was going to be his wife one day, turned to a tender caress of a love that was now showing her that he loved her with all of his soul, and that he was going to protect his girl no matter what faced them. She was everything to him then, the touch and curve of her belly and other assets, the sound of her voice, so soft and gentle. He could smell her hair, her perfume and her.

This was not a kiss that searched for more, this was a kiss between lovers that held more intimacy than any other physical act they could perform would ever reveal. A kiss that spoke louder than any words, clearer than any contract. Dante loved Natasha, and she was going to be the Mother of their neonato, their child. This kiss was the joy of life, of creating something that would be unique in the universe, something that would forever bond Natasha and Dante no matter what came before them. It was a kiss that told Natasha that she was Dante’s whole universe, his centre of being.

His hand raised to her cheek and his eyes searched for hers, waiting just a moment for her eyes to open once more now his lips had left hers and his fingers caressed her cheek ever so softly. “Oh my god Tasia,” Dante whispered the name Natasha held only for those closest to her and paused a moment as a smile spread across his lips and he allowed himself to give her a ever so gentle peck once more. “We are going to be parents. I am going to be a daddy, and you a mommy,” It was said softly, as if speaking it louder would wake them from a dream neither wanted to be woken from. “Oh my god.”

It was odd, flashed through Dante’s mind, how in these moments of love and happiness simple statements that would normally draw sarcasm of being rather obvious, became nothing but loving truths and the focus of a bond that burned fiercely between them. “I love you so much baby,” he breathed it, almost reverently, like he was now scared to lose the most important thing in his life, and in the most passionately unmanly way, his eyes moistened as his heart became full of far too much love for Natasha in that moment as everything that the two of them had ever wanted came to be. A family, and Natasha the mother of his children.
