Pregnancy update

19 05 2009

Holding_HandsYes, I know. It’s been a while and I have a lot to catch up on. Let’s start with the arrival of my best friend Courtney and her little follower, Paige. Damien and I had just returned to the Kentarou House after… a break. 😉 Which, by the way, I’m very pregnant now. It’s a bit disorientating sometimes, but I don’t mind. It’s all going to be worth it in the end. Anyways, we were in the family room relaxing when Artemis pointed out that someone was staring in the window. I flipped when I saw my best friend Courtney outside and immediately ran to greet her. I couldn’t believe she was a vampire like me now – although she was a few years older than me now, physically. It was awesome seeing her again after so long and she told me all about Rowan and his family. He’s married now with two little girls!  Well, after that we talked for a while and I ended up explaining the whole pregnancy thing to her. She’s almost as excited as I am. Paige is just adorable too. She’s really sweet, but like Cambria, she’s distracted easily. At least she keeps herself occupied fairly often.

I felt the first real kick today. A few days ago it was just a butterfly-touch; very light and almost unnoticeable. I was shocked when I felt it and I’ve been looking everywhere for Damien so he could feel it too. I want to surprise him. 🙂 The whole pregnancy experience has been weird and wonderful at the same time; although I don’t care much for the occasional cramp and the fierce cravings. I asked Damien if I could have an Iberian Lynx one time – those are endangered you know – and he compromised by bringing me a Canadian Lynx. It wasn’t as tasty, but I couldn’t damage the species any more than it had been.

So, I guess that’s pretty much caught you up now. There’s been a lot of drama going on with Serena and the others, but I’m not too sure what it’s about. Anyways, I’m feeling another craving coming on so I better go find Damien. I think I’m going to have to get him to hunt for me from now until the baby’s born – it’s getting hard to walk around, much less run.



Secrets and children

3 05 2009

Damien and I went to Tristan’s today. Everything started out pretty calmly, but like it always does, chaos ensued shortly after our arrival. Liam came home with his blood reeking of heroin and that shocked us all because he’s usally a pretty straight-and-narrow kind of kid – if you look past the piercings and the attitude. Katya is still doing crazy experiments on her plants. I wonder if Tristan will ever let her use the lab?

Well, anyways, Tristan was livid with Liam – who was too stoned to really care at the time – and somehow everthing got turned to Serena. For whatever reason, Tristan was mad at her and then Mia got upset and suddenly I’m finding myself outside with Damien trying to calm her down. She must’ve let Damien into her mind because Damien nearly went unconscious with the emotional stress she must’ve been feeling. It took a while and a lot of talking on Tristan’s part to finally calm her down and even longer for Damien to recover.

When Damien was well enough to walk, we ventured to find Tristan again after he had headed for the lab. We found him in the hallway and we – er, Damien – asked Tristan to make the elixir that would enable us to have a child. It doesn’t even bother me now to say that; it was weird at first because I had never pictured myself as a parent. Tristan had to explain a few things (the latter of which, I was very embarrassed about) and then we were told that Artemis and Omari would also be having a child.

I’ll have to congratulate them once I find them. I can’t even imagine what would happen if Artemis and I were pregnant at the same time. It’s a frightening thought.


New territory

1 05 2009

Just a short entry today.

It’s been about a year since Damien and I told my ‘parents’ about our eloping and moved out of the Night House. We now live in a cosy little home in Auckland, New Zealand where Damien grew up. It’s been – for the most part – uneventful. We visit the Night House and the Kentarou House pretty often. Katya and Liam have grown up a lot, although I’m not sure if that’s a good thing. Liam is getting almost as bad as Aroha with those piercings. Katya and I have struck up a friendship. She’s crazy, just like her Mum. Tee hee. I’ve also been on civil terms with Lexie, which is a HUGE improvement from the day she attacked me.

In other news… Damien came to me a few hours ago with his next brilliant idea (and I’m not saying that sarcastically). So, guess what? We’re going to have a kid. Yes, I’m going to have a kid. Surprised? Me too. You heard right. Your ears do not decieve you (or your eyes, I suppose). We’re going to head to Tristan and Mia’s house soon to talk with Tristan about doing his mad scientist schtick and making it possible for me to actually have a child. I’m a little more than nervous about it, because obviously I’m not the best canidate for parenting with my upbringing. But Damien seems to think otherwise, so I’m going to get over my fears and do this.

I never really thought I would like the idea of having a child of my own. Then again, I never thought I’d get married either. I can’t say I’m complaining. 😉

Well, I’ll leave the entry on this note. My hands are fidgeting too much to focus on this blog.
