The wedding was a small one and not by your choice; Dante wanted to be on the safe side if not too many people knew of the baby and you and him getting married. He even told you that it just rile Vergil up and attack you more and you understood him clearly; you twirled the ring on your left ring finger as your other hand rubbed your stomach, feeling the unborn child within you. Kat was beside you as you two spoke of the baby. "I've never seen Dante this ecstatic. I mean, yeah at first he seemed nervous but look at you, (Name), already five months pregnant. Where does the time go?" You shrug and say, "I know. Dante doesn't want to admit it but he's glad to have a child" You look away from her and say, "But Vergil-" Your voice got choked up, fearing the baby wasn't Dante's but his twin brother's child; it made Kat look at you and say in a serious tone, "(Name), did Vergil do anything to you? If Vergil is the father, Dante will still raise the child as his own" You looked at her and said, "No, I'm sure it's Dante's baby. I just know it" As if satisfied with your answer, Kat smiled as a door opened and Dante's voice rang out, "I'm back, and let me tell you, those demons did not-I repeat-did NOT wanna die" You and Kat giggled at that comment as, with Kat's help, stood up and hugged Dante while he kissed you and then to your stomach saying, "How's the champ doing?" You look at him and say, "Well, your little 'champ' has been a pain and as soon as you left this morning, the little one's been playing 'Gotcha!' with us"
Dante couldn't help but laugh and say, "Giving us false alarms, eh? Well, goes to show the kid can play a few jokes" He stands up and guides you back to the couch and helps you sit down as you whine, "Dante I'm fine. When it gets to the eight and the nine month mark, then I'll need help moving" Dante just ignored you and sat down beside you while Kat said that she was heading to bed as he carefully laid his head on your stomach and he rubbed it as he smiled. You couldn't help but smile too as a hand was put on Dante's head and you placed the other on his hand when he said, "Soon...just wait little guy you'll get to meet us someday" "What makes you think it's gonna be a boy it may be a girl", you say with a giggle; you and Dante wanted to wait for the baby to be born before you and him bought some things for the baby minus the crib and diapers, Kat had already got them for you. You let out a heavy sigh before you yawned, making Dante ask, "Are you tired?" You nodded when he said, "(Name), we still haven't thought of a name for the baby" "Kat and I were talking about that and we came up with a few" Dante's head lifted up and he asked, "Oh? Well, tell me" You picked up a sheet of paper with two columns and you handed it to him, making him sit up as he began to read, "...Mitch-no way...Zachery-that's not bad...Kevin-definitely no...Angelo-that's a bit better...Jace-alright I've picked the name if it's a boy" "You haven't even read the rest", you squeaked when he pointed to the one saying "Jace" as you say, "But I think Jace would be a good name" He nodded and said, "Yeah let's see for the girls" He looked it over and noticed his mother's name was on it as you said to him, "I'd figured it would be a way to honor your mother considering I've never met her"
Dante sighed and said, "Alright, then, if it is a girl, she'll be named Eva, but it will be her middle name. I like this name, Catreana though, so we could name her that" You sighed and yawned again which made Dante stand and hold out his hand as he said, "C'mon, let's head to bed" You both did so and you could see Dante had already fallen asleep as you tried to get comfortable. Once you got in a position that was comfy, you closed your eyes and fell asleep.
***3 months later***
Dante sat beside you as Kat got some drinks for everyone when a knock came from the front door which made you say, "My sister's here" Kat opened it and said her hello as Maria did the same while being guided to the living room and said, "So, that baby is still there, huh. Well, I guess when it comes, it comes" You giggled at her as Dante said, "You scare me when just show up randomly" You knew he was lying about it, because the demons don't scare him and you've learned that if anything scares him, you'd better be scared. Maria just sighed and said, "Well, I was in town so I'd figured I would drop by. I better get home see you guys later" With that, she left as you smiled and looked at your stomach. You looked like you would pop if someone took a pin and poked you with it while Dante watched you with a small smile. Suddenly, you felt a kick, making you wince at it and you thought, 'Easy there, you're hurting Momma'
The second kick really got you to scream in pain, making Dante's smile quickly fade and he jumped off the couch as Kat asked, "(Name), are you alright?!" You barely got up, only to tumble to the ground as Dante caught you as he said for you, "The baby's coming. Get your car, Kat. NOW!" Kat did so as Dante helped you up as he asked, "Can you stand, (Name)?"
You shook your head as Dante quickly, and in a gentle manner, picked you up and threw your arm over his shoulder as he heard Kat honk the horn three times, letting him know she got the car. You and Dante sat in the back as Kat used every shortcut she knew to get to the hospital; once you made it, you and Dante headed on in as Kat went to find a parking spot while Dante shouted, "Help us!" You were placed on a bed and Dante held your hand, letting you squeeze it all the way. Once they got you set up, Dante stayed in the room as doctors came in and told you to push and so you did. You screamed in pain as Dante said calming, soothing, and supportive words in your ear; you felt like you would rather take a demon's bite when suddenly, a cry erupted in the room, but you felt it wasn't over yet as you were told to push again. 'I was carrying twins?!'
, the thought barely came to mind as the pain you felt made you squeeze Dante's hand harder. Dante could see you were in pain and even the thought that you had carried twins shocked him when another baby cry could be heard. You felt the pain go away as tears fell from not only your face, but Dante's as well, when a female doctor said, "You have twins, a boy and a girl" "Jace...Catreana...", you barely breathed before you passed out from the birth. After a few hours, you woke up in another room to see Kat in the room with Dante, both holding each twin; Dante looked up and saw you awake and handed you the boy saying, "This is Jace, he looks like me" You saw that Jace had you (h/c) and Dante's ice blue-grey eyes as he looked up at you as you said sweetly, "That's right, Jace, it's mommy. We finally meet" Kat handed you the girl and saw she had Dante's dark hair and your (e/c) eyes as Kat said, "Here's Catreana. She's so beautiful"
Dante saw the bond you and the twins begin to build as more tears began to fall as you noticed it and said, "Well, that's a rare commodity, Dante" He quickly wiped them away and said, "I don't know what you're talking about" You smiled and said, "Dante, let those tears fall, a Nephilim's tears are like anyone else's tears" Dante stepped forward and kissed you and said, "We're now a family, (Name), and I'll protect you until my last breath" You smiled and replied, "And I'll go wherever you'll go, Dante"
In the distance, Vergil's eyes narrowed, seeing he didn't kill you and that you had given birth to twins while he clenched his fists. He growled to himself for not making sure he had finished the job, but he then began to think, 'I could take one of the children and raise them on my own'
Vergil walked away as he thought, 'I'll have to do it soon, but not now. I'll let them be a "family" for now'
