Love For The Ladies: Chapter 82 – Real – Part 1

About 3 months ago I met Piper Labbore. She attends the same school as me, we met in the parking lot after class one day. We both notice we were both lycan and a friendship quickly sparked between us. It is nice to have another lycan to chat and hang out with. It’s nice to have someone who you got something in common with. We go on nightly runs together and I tag along during her many shopping trips. I wasn’t a fan of showing reality TV or gossip shows but hanging out with Piper pulled me into it.

I like Piper, she’s different from most lycan I encountered. She acts like any other 23 year old female. She’s isn’t all about her pack and has many human friends whom she parties with on the weekends. She’s attending school to become of a grade school teacher. But then I learned that wolf packs are different in this country. Most pack are made up of family members that comes in large members.

Back in Italy, packs were made by hand selecting lycans to join. There are rules to follow and lycans didn’t live independently nor work outside of their pack territory. Piper’s family is one of the largest and richest packs on this side of the country. She and her immediate family live in EC independently. She said the main portion of the Labbore pack live in a city 45 miles away, they often meet with them on the weekends.  

I didn’t know lycans could live away their pack, I was often told they would be weakened. Piper giggle and said that’s what they once believe but lycans don’t have to live on the same territory. As long as they are within 100 miles, they are fine but its best to live closely with their immediate family when living away from the heart of the pack. For the most part, pack members are next door neighbors or live a few blocks away but still maintain an independent lives until pack duty calls. Joining a pack here doesn’t seem too bad. Back in Italy, the packs lived in 2-4 large houses on a property marked as their territory. They were assigned jobs at the house or somewhere near the their territory. Italian lycans are old school, caged like dogs. No wonder why my father didn’t want to be apart of one.

 

 

 

 Today wasn’t like any other day. Piper wanted my help, she needed me to help her get ready for a first date with a Lycan male. I’m not sure why she asked me but I figure she was just nervous. Since I’m her only non-pack lycan friend, she came to me.

“I’m glad you’re willing to help me out. You didn’t have to.”

“You’re welcome, I’m not sure what you need me to do.”

“I was wondering if you could help me find a cute dress for tonight.”

“Sure I can do that.”

“And um… I know this is last minute but can you watch Kiara?”

“I can, I have no plans for tonight. Why me? What about Morde? I know he’s upset about not getting to see her often.”

“Morde was my first choice but he has to work late and my mom got called in. My dad is away on business and my little sister…she’s a jerk. You don’t have to, maybe I can convince Liam or maybe his daughter.”

“No it’s fine, I figure you would go for the Montigos first.”

“Yeah. I know they want to see her but I’ll feel weird asking them. I think they hate me..”

“I doubt it, probably just a bit annoyed with the visitation thing.”

“I want Morde to spend more time with her but my parents.. always make plans first without telling me.” 

“You are Kiara’s mother. It’s time that you be her mother. It’s okay to tell your mother no, Kiara is your child and you get to decide what’s best for her. You know having her father in her life is best. You gotta put your foot down.”

“If you met my mom then you’ll know why…”

 

 

 

 “Anyway, tell me about this guy.”

“His name is Marcus. He’s a new pack member that my family let in. He was once in a pack but removed when they learned he fathered 2 human kids in another city. The mother died, he needed to take them. That’s when the pack removed him. Packs frown on inter-occult relationships and since his kids had only 2% lycan in their blood, it’s taken as a sign of weakness.”

“If that’s a sign of weakness why did your pack take him in?”

“He has great charisma! Plus his work ethic was pretty great. My family was willing to overlook the human thing but he must promise to date lycan women only.”

“And that’s why you have a date?”

“In some ways but I kinda like him. He’s really cute, funny and treats me well. I needed to move on you know. I could never be with Morde. Turns out my parents were happy when our fake relationship was over. They didn’t want me to be with him and was about to tell me to end it.”

“So your family isn’t upset about you having a child with a human?”

“Of course they are angry about it.. I’m snubbed by a few of my cousins. I gotta repay them by doing chores around the Labbore mansion in East Bridgeport every Sunday for the next 5 years. Cleaning up after 24 lycans isn’t fun.. At least the maid secretly helps me. When Marcus join, they set me up with him to prevent me dating outside of the lycan race.”

“Hmm.. I was starting to think packs in this country wasn’t so bad.”

“They don’t arrange relationships unless a member went against the code. So far Marcus seems like a decent guy. We been texting each other for 2 weeks. I got a good feeling about him. Chatting with me keeps my mind off of Kiara’s pending case. Since Kiara has genie blood, the pack isn’t sure about accepting her. If she has more lycan blood she can be if not… She can’t.. She won’t be apart of family functions and my parents want me to give her up to Morde.. They say it will ber easier if she lives with him.”

“Maybe that’s why your parents are hogging her.”

“I think you may be right.. They want as much face time just in case..”

 

 

 

 “I need a dress that’s gotta show my best assets. Morde always liked tight dresses on me.”

“Trust me, don’t wear a tight dress on the first date. When I first met Borage for our first date, within the first 30 seconds of meeting… he wanted me out of the dress.”

“Ha ha! Okay. How about something pink? Morde liked when I wore pink.”

“Um Piper, you’re going a date with Marcus.. Not Mordecai. You should probably not talk about your ex doing your date.”

“Right! To be honest, Morde is the only guy I been with.. I’m so nervous! What if I wear a color that Marcus hates! Most lycan guys hate the color orange! Let’s not get orange!”

“Piper, it’s gonna fine.”

“Maybe help me find something is pink? He can’t hate pink. Girls are cute in pink.”

 

 

 

 

 “I’ll look for something in pink for you- ooh..”

“Clar? You okay?”

“I’m fine, just been feeling under the weather lately.”

“I notice how you gotta go to the bathroom a lot. Are you preggers? Oh my god! Our babies can be friends!”

“What? That’s impossible. I need to sleep with a guy first.”

“Well.. maybe you should see a doc. There’s been a bug going around.”

“Maybe I- hold please!”

 

 

 

 

 After making a visit to the bathroom to puke, Piper had found a dress that she liked. It was pink of course but very cute on her. I’m not sure what’s going on with me. I’ve been feeling sicks for the past few weeks now. I wake up feeling nauseated, I have to pee every 20 minutes and craving spaghetti more often than usually.

Anything I eat makes me sick but eating spaghetti goes well with me. Maybe there is a bug going on. I’ve been sick like this before but only Borage made me feel better. The doctors couldn’t figure why… maybe that sickness came back.

 

 

 

 

 “Do you think this color of lipstick is okay?”

“Yeah, you know more about fashion than me.”

“I guess.. Oh Clar. I’m scared. I just want this date to go well. I’ve only seen him twice. We just text… Being face to face is gonna be different.”

“Piper, you’re gonna be fine. Just keep it together.”

“Okay. Again thanks for keeping Kiara. I got a text from Morde saying he’ll get off from work a little earlier. He’ll be here around 8 to get Kiara.”

“Okay that’s good. I think I here Marcus pulling up.”

“Oh my stars! Can I take a hit of vodka real quick? It will take some of the edge off.”

“I don’t think that’s a good idea..”

 

 

……………

 

 

The doorbell rang, I figure it was Piper’s date. While Piper collected her nerves, I went to answer the door only to find a shocking surprised. This can’t be… Please tell me that my eyes aren’t seeing this. Tyrese? He’s dead… I killed him.. I know Tyrese is dead.. This can’t be.. What is going on?

“Who are you?!” I shouted behind my door with fear in my voice. “I’m Marcus, I’m here to pick up Piper. Is this the right house?” My heart raced as I stared at his familiar face however there was a gentleness tone with his voice, something unlike Tyrese.

 

 

 

 

 “Mar-cus?”

“Yes, Marcus Fraye. You must be Clarissa right? Piper’s friend?”

“Well..yes. I’m Clarissa.”

“Oh great then this must be the right house.”

“Ye-ahh.”

“Are you okay? You look like you just seen a ghost.”

 

 

 

 “I thought.. You look like someone I know. Please come in..”

“Clarissa…Clarissa. That name seems familiar. You once lived in Canosa?”

“How do you figure?!”

“I have family there.. My aunt lives there, she my cousin did. You’re Tyrese’s wife?”

“How did you know?”

“He’s my cousin. I remember my aunt telling me he had a wife named Clarissa with unique lime green eyes. Tyrese didn’t keep in contact with us much after he got married.”

“I was his wife until.. you know..”

“Was? Tyrese didn’t say you guys were divorced.”

“I’m confused?”

“You went missing. Tyrese has been looking for you. He misses you, we last spoke a week ago.”

 

 

 

 

My heart sank. I was overwhelmed with nausea when learning Tyrese was still alive. This can’t be real. This can’t be true! They said he was dead!

 

 

 

 

 

 My living nightmare is back…

 

 

 

 

 

 I cleaned myself up just before Piper left with Marcus. He looks a lot Ty but act nothing like him. Knowing that they are cousins, I know my peace was soon to end shortly. I couldn’t bring myself to be happy for Piper, I was too afraid of what’s going to happen in my life soon. Piper headed out the door and Marcus soon followed but not before saying something to me first. “I know how Ty is. I know why you attacked him…. Don’t worry Clarissa, you and I never met.”

 

 

 

I took comfort in knowing Marcus won’t tell Tyrese where I’m at. Kiara was sleepy and I laid her on my couch as I studied for an up coming test. At first it was difficult to study but Marcus’ promise echoed in my head. I’m not sure if I can truly trust his word.. But Piper said he’s a good guy. I just up she’s right.

 

 

 

 

It wasn’t long before Morde came over to pick up Kiara. I was feeling hungry for the first time since hearing about Ty. I figure I should make some spaghetti since it was the only food I could keep down.

 

 

 

 

 However I found myself sick again. It could be either a bug.. or stress. I need something to take my mind off of things.

 

 

 

 

 “Hey sexy lady.”

“Borage.”

“So you just gonna stand there like I got the cooties?”

“No… I’m just-“

 

 

 

 

 “I’m here now, don’t you worry about shit.”

“Yeah.. Today has been a little crazy. I’m just happy to see you again.”

“What can I do to make you happy?”

“Just hold me..”

 

 

 

 

 Just seeing his smile is enough to make me happy. I haven’t seen that smile in such a long time.

 

 

 

 

……

 

 

 

 

 “Borage? Don’t do this to me again….”

 

 

 

 

 “Shit..”

 

 

 

 

 

Three days later I got an appointment with Dr. Adams at the Glendale clinic. I wasn’t getting better so I figure that I should get checked out.

“Hi Shae, I didn’t know you worked at the clinic now.”

“I’m just filling in for the day. The tempt had a meltdown too. You’re here for Dr. Adams?”

“Yes.”

“Okay, I’ll get you checked in. We’ll call you once he’s ready.”

 

 

 

 

 

 Thankfully the waiting room was bit quiet today. I saw 2 ladies chatting each other. I brought in a book to read while I wait. I just hope these 2 aren’t too chatty, I need this book to calm my nerves. Doctor visits were never fun.

 

 

 

 “I’m serious Coco, I’m too fat for this to only be one baby.”

“I think you’re fine, Lexy. I was on the big side with my second. Ramon ended up being a 9 pound baby.”

“I doubt this baby is fat. Maybe the fat baby is hiding another baby.”

“Ha ha, Lexy you are too silly.”

“Anyway, in my last visit… Evan made of picked up a second heartbeat.”

“Oh..”

“Yeah so the fat baby is hiding another fat baby and I’m gonna find out.”

“Stop calling your baby fat.”

“Ha ha ha. Fat babies are cute.”

 

 

 

 

As soon as one of the ladies was called, one of them spoke to me. I decided to be nice and set my book down for a bit.

“Seeing Evan too?”

“Yeah, how did you figure?”

“I read your mind.”

“Excuse me?”

“Just kidding, I figure since you’re a lycan and he’s the only occult doc.”

“Oh yeah.”

“I’m Alexia and you?”

“I’m Clarissa. It’s nice to meet you.”

 

 

 

 “I’m seeing him too. We will be waiting a for a while.”

“Yeah I was told that he would be pretty busy.”

“In a few I gotta drink a ass load of water for this ultrasound. Having to hold in my bladder when a fat baby is sitting on it isn’t fun.”

“I bet. Is this your first?”

“Hell naw.. My second and hopefully my last. Pregnancy for a hybrid vamp is very uncomfortable. We weren’t meant for this type of thing ya know.”

“I wondered about vampires. How some of you are able to be in sunlight and have babies.”

“Cause we’re hybrids. Genetically created vamps known as Hyperprians. Some crazy science guy spliced vamp genetics with human genetics. In other words, were are like vampire-humans. Vampires can’t breed but humans can, so things are kinda like screwed up Hyperprians.”

“Oh I see.”

 

 

 

 “My sister is lucky, she’s just a human but married to a Hyperprian like me. My mom was once one too but was turned human cause she was dying. Hyperprianisum can be undone. But living as a human is painful. My mom is always sick. But knowing she got 2 new grand babies on the way, it gets her through the day. It might be 3 if I got twins.”

“Aww, if so you and the father will have your hands full then?”

“Please, just me. The daddy just had to get himself into a coma. The idiot was speeding on a icy street. His other baby mama who’s all obsessed with him, like text him saying her house was on fire and shit. Which I find strange. Like why you textin’ when your house on fire? She’s so creepy and he told me how he can’t stand her. Like her thirsty ass was like stalking him. Cause I saw her around my house when he dropped off my son. Bitch is so thirsty, it’s so sad. But anyway the dumb ass wanna play superman and look where it got him. He better wake before this fat baby come out. I can’t do this alone ya know. Besides… I do miss his big dick.”

“How far along are you?”

“30 weeks.”

“So you conceived in October?”

“Yep, I’m due early July. Why do you ask?”

“Just curious….”

 

 

 

 “So is there another fat baby in there?”

“Alexia, it’s hard to tell. It’s how your baby is position. I know I picked up a second heartbeat. We will need to do s 4D scan to get a better look.”

“I hope you were gonna tell me something new.”

“There’s only thing, the baby finally turned around. It’s a girl.”

“A baby girl? Really?”

“Yep, congrats Alexia.”

“This makes my day. A baby girl. Now can I go pee? I gotta piss like a race horse.”

 

 

 

 It was my turn to be seen. After giving urine and blood samples, I waited for Dr. Adams to return.

“It will be a few days before getting the results on your blood work. However I was able to run a few test on your urine sample.”

“Find out anything with that?”

“Well yes. Your HCG levels are sky high.”

“Is that bad?”

“Depends on how you take the news. You’re pregnancy and with levels as high as yours, you’re expecting more than one. It’s very common with Lycans.”

“Excuse me? Did you say I’m pregnant?”

“Yes.”

“No. That’s not possible… That’s impossible.”

 

 

 

 “Commonly urine pregnancy test can be inaccurate but Clarissa, it turned positive fairly quickly. Plus the levels are very high. I’ll be doing most testing with your blood work.”

“I haven’t been sexually active in a year.”

“I see, I have a theory.”

“Yes?”

“This could be a hibernation pregnancy that became active. Did you experience and high stress in the past year or two?”

“Yes…”

“I see. You may have gotten pregnant during your stressful period.”

“No..no..no. This can’t be true!”

“Clarissa, may I ask you something?”

“Sure…”

 

 

 

“Your Lycan parent, were they any type of Lycan. Such as a special breed. I couldn’t help but notice your eye color. It’s unique color.”

“My father is a Silver Back.”

“Ahh yes, I thought so. I believe you’re a special type as well.”

“What do you mean?”

“A Dream Catcher. Silver Backs usually have lime green eyes, and usually one of their children is a Dream Catcher. Have you ever had a nightmare?”

“No, my dreams were always nice.”

“Well Clarissa, I believe you’re a Dream Catcher. I have another question, it’s quite personally.”

“Go ahead.”

“Have you recently had any dreams about having intimacy with a male whom you care deeply about?”

“Um… yes.”

“Is this male of an occult?”

“Yes, a genie.”

“This genie, is he comatose?”

“Yes.”

“Oh my! This could be another medical miracle.”

“What do you mean?”

“Are you aware of Dream Catchers?”

“They turn dreams into reality if they have a deep connection with it. Yeah.”

“Oh my! Forgive me for being giddy about this but you might have gotten pregnant in a dream. This has happen once over 50 years ago. A Dream Catcher Lycan became pregnant by her comatose genie husband after having series of intimate dreams. He was awaken on the night the child was born. He was in a coma for 12 years. If this pregnancy was a result of a dream, this could be big in the medical world. But there’s a chance this is a Hibernation pregnancy gone active. Time will tell. I would like for you to come back in next week for your first prenatal check up and ultrasound.”

 

 

 I wasn’t sure what to think about this news. I’m pregnant but by who? Is this a hibernation baby Or is this a dream baby? Should of be sad or should I be happy? My head is spinning. I can’t wrap my head around this. I just need to go see him.. I want to see him but I don’t.. I just remember my chat with Alexia. She got pregnant while we started to date…

  1. Ooooh so much going on and it’s getting exciting! I hope she doesn’t have to go thru the whole pregnancy before Borage wakes up though. That would be hard for her— especially with the news of Marcus to give her even more stress. :/
