It was a normal day at the swamp but Fiona was very cranky and moody. She was pregnant and was expecting twins. Shrek was a little shocked by this. To him kids were the worst thing an ogre can have besides getting bugged by villagers day and night. Donkey and his family weren't helping things either. Only Donkey was getting freaked by Fiona's constant mood swings. "When's Fiona giving birth to your kids?" he asked curiously. "I don't honestly know. But honestly I don't want her to give birth to kids. They're worse than anything!" he told him angrily.
He didn't know that Fiona had over heard this. She was upset by this but hid it underneath her mask of hormones. Later that night she was in bed and still awake. Shrek was sound asleep and snoring. She then felt something break inside of her. It was time! "Honey wake up! The kids are on their way! We're going to be parents!" she told him as she shook him awake. Fear and nerves were running through his body at this. "Oh great! Our lives are gonna be more crazy now the kids are going to be born!" Shrek said sarcastically. They then got into the onion carriage and headed for the hospital. When they got there, Fiona was taken into the delivery suite. It took twenty three hpurs but at dawn or 3 in the morning, the babies were born. "Congratualations you have a healthy set of Ogrese twins!" the doctor told her. Shrek then walked out of the room. Donkey showed up with some of his kids. "What're you doing here?" he asked irritated. "We came to see your babies! You must be so excited!" he ranted. Shrek was wearing a medical gown/scrubs, a surgical mask and rubber gloves. It was hard for Donkey not to laugh at this. Fiona was in bed. She had two ogre babies in her arms. She was very tired and was asleep. The babies were gurgling away and touching her.
The boy looked like Shrek with his brown eyes, red curl on his head, little pudgy arms, a small chest, tiny legs. He and his sister both had the trumpet shaped ears like their parents. The girl had Fiona's blue eyes, her smile, slender chest, arms, legs but pudgy hands. Fiona smiled as they tugged on her ears gently. Donkey then walked in. He wondered what was wrong with Shrek. It was like he didn't want to know his own kids or something. "Hey Fi! How you feeling?" he asked happily. "Tired but fine. Have you seen Shrek? I want him to see our children." She told him. "Yeah I have. He walked out of the hospital. He seemed a little unhappy. I don't see what his problem was asbout this." He said to her. She understood and shook her head. "Can I ask you something?" she asked him. "Sure! Anything for you! What do you want me to do?" he asked her. "I need you to talk to Shrek for me. I don't think he's thrilled about having kids. Why don't you tell him about when your kids were born? Maybe he'll soften up after this." She told him quietly. "Okay but why can't you do it? He doesn't listen to me even in a good mood." He told her. He then went to find him. Meanwhile Shrek was at the Poison Apple Pub sucking down rum shots. He was very depressed. Donkey then saw him fall onto the floor drunk. He ran over to his side.
His clothes reeked of beer and rum shots. "Are you okay? You must be really upset over having a family if you came here and drank that much beer." He said as he helped him up but he fell down again. Donkey then dragged him by the shirt all the way back to the swamp. He hoped Fiona hadn't brought the kids home yet. He didn't want to see Fiona mad or the babies try to get near their Daddy because he'd gotten drunk. A while later and several trips to the out house, Shrek was back to nnormal except for having a mega head ache. "Hey Donkey. What's up?" he asked him slurred. "You got seriously drunk and I sdort of brought you here. Can I ask you something?" he told him quietly. "Sure." He told him. "How come you're mad at Fiona for having kids? Don't you want to start a family?" he said. He then ducked under the table waiting for him to explode with anger. But it didn't happen. "I'll tell you but you can't tell anyone else, okay?" he told him. "Cool! What is it?" he asked. "The reason I don't want kids is because… I don't want to abandon them in a forest and have them grow up alone and never trusting anyone. Donkey I… was abandoned as a kid no younger than your lot. My parents were bad ogres but when I was hatched, I was born with a good heart inside of me but that wasn't good enough for them. They tried to get it out of me but it couldn't be removed. One day, I was left alone in the forest, all alone. I thought they'd come back but they never did. After that, I developed my emotional wall so the hurt couldn't scar me but now having kids is making it come back and I'm… afraid for them and me. Think about it. How can I be a good father when my own one left me to start my life on my own. It's pretty scary." He told him. There were tears forming in his brown eyes. Donkey was astonished by this. "Don't worry man! I was like that when my kids were born but don't worry. I'm sure there's nothing to worry about. I won't tell anyone but maybe Fiona."he said. Shrek then thought about this and walked out of the swamp.
He then headed to the hospital. Self doubt was raging in his heart like thunder but he had to do this, no matter what.
