Okay, I believe this story is coming to an end soon… I have too many stories, and need to close a few off…

Anyway, sorry for the long time no update… my excuses are listed in the latest chapter of Life Comes Around.

Twitter me, KatrynaWilliams.

"Roza, can we talk about something?" Dimitri asked, voice tense.

I paused. "What?"

"Roza, I don't think you should go on the Strigoi trip… it's too dangerous for you and the baby," he told me.

I bit my lip. I had thought about this. I knew it wasn't a smart idea for me to go, but I wanted to go anyway. I knew that it was too much of a risk to our miracle.

"I know," I whispered. "But, I don't want to just stand here and watch everyone I care about leave to risk their lives."

He paused.

"So, here's my compromise: I'll stay here. But, only if you promise that you'll be careful, you'll be safe," I said. "I don't want to be here alone, with our baby. Because I couldn't deal if you died."

He nodded. "I swear I will be safe. I promise."

"Thank you. I still don't like this, you know."

"I do know. But thank you."

I smiled. "Yeah."

I wished I could go. But I didn't want to risk the baby. It was my baby. Dimitri's baby. Our baby. Together.

The thought excited me. So much.

"We can tell people today," he said.

"Adrian knows."

"How?" I could hear the jealousy in his voice.

"He's the one who gave me the test. In that bag. I can't believe this is actually happening!" I exclaimed. "This is so… amazing! Lissa first."

"Come on," he pulled me up. "Let's go."

"Lissa," I called. "Hey, Liss! Guess what?"

She walked into view. "What?"

I smiled. "I'm… um, I hope our kids will be best friends. Being so close together in age and all…"

"That'd be so co—wait, you're pregnant?" she shrieked. She looked to Dimitri, and then back to me. "Who's is it?"

I hugged her. "Dimitri's. It's all because of you. Because I'm shadow kissed," I squeezed her tightly. "Thank you."

"Thank you, Lissa," Dimitri said, sincerity in his voice.

She smiled at me, a watery smile, and she hugged me tighter. "I can't believe it!" she shouted. "Christian!"

Christian came in, looking happier than I had ever seen him. "Yeah, Liss?"

"I'm pregnant," I smirked. "Our kids will be best friends, fireboy."

"Adrian's?" he smirked sarcastically.

"Christian!" I shouted.

"It's Belikov's. I know. You're shadow kissed. It's not hard to piece together," he came forward and hugged me, to my surprise. "Congrats."

I hugged back. "Thanks."

He patted Dimitri on the back. "You knocked up Hathaway. I didn't know you had it in you."D

Dimitri grinned. "It's not like it wasn't fun."

I slapped him playfully. "Dimitri!"

Lissa covered her ears, pretending that they burned, and we all laughed.

Adrian walked in.

"So you told them, I see," he smirked.

I tackled him, and he hugged me back. "Thank you!" I exclaimed. "So, so much for telling me!"

"Not a problem, little Dhampir. Not a problem.

Sorry it was so short… but it was a chapter.

Probably no new updates until December. I'm doing NaNoWriMo…

Review please. I love every single one of my reviewers. I wish I could give you all hugs. That sounded sappy, didn't it?

Sorry. I'm not usually sappy.
