Susanne went to visit Arielle a week after the wedding when she saw neither of them making plans for a honeymoon.
“Sannie, why haven’t you and Vinson gone on your honeymoon yet?”
Don’t young couples love going on honeymoons? Why haven’t they even made plans for it?
Arielle was a little surprised when she found out Susanne had come to see her because of that.
She shook her head and said with a chuckle, “We’d just be sleeping in a different bedroom if we go on a honeymoon. I might as well stay home where it’s a lot more comfortable.”
For some reason, Arielle felt extremely tired after getting pregnant and would spend almost the entire day sleeping. She even started yawning as she spoke to Susanne about it.
“I’m really tired, Mom. I’m going to bed, okay?”
Seeing as Arielle looked very sleepy, Susanne motioned for her to go ahead and get some rest.
Arielle and Vinson used to sleep on the second floor, but Susanne figured it would be dangerous for pregnant women to go up and down the stairs so often.
As such, she had the two of them move into a room downstairs. She even made sure to pick one with great natural lighting and replaced all the furniture with new ones.
Arielle and Vinson knew Susanne was only doing this as a safety precaution, so they did as they were told and moved downstairs.
Susanne shook her head helplessly and smiled as she watched Arielle enter the bedroom. She then whipped out a dictionary that she had bought a long time ago and started going through a list of names.
Arielle had requested for Susanne to name her first child regardless of its gender. Naturally, Susanne was more than happy to help with that. However, she soon came to realize it was a lot more difficult than she had imagined.
Even after scribbling down a long list of names and their respective meanings, she was unable to decide on which one to use and kept looking for more names.
Vinson knew Arielle was asleep when he came home and saw that her bedroom lights were off.
He then made his way over to Susanne’s room and asked, “Hey, Mom. Has Sannie taken her dinner yet?”
“Yeah, she went to sleep immediately after having dinner,” Susanne replied with a nod.
“All right. You should get some sleep too, Mom,” Vinson said as he went upstairs to take a shower.
After blowing his hair dry, he headed back into his bedroom downstairs.
Without even switching on the lights, Vinson made his way over to the bed and climbed under the covers.
Arielle instinctively nuzzled against his chest in response. Vinson gave her an affectionate kiss on the forehead and rested his hands on her tummy.
As Vinson had always been going to work on time and would often clock in a few hours of overtime, Arielle got a little curious when she woke up the next day and saw that Vinson was still in bed.
“Don’t you have work today?” Arielle asked curiously.
“I won’t be going to work until you deliver the baby and complete your postpartum recovery. I’ve put Rayson in charge of things at the office. He’ll inform me if there’s anything that requires my presence.”
Vinson reached out and pulled her into his arms as he continued, “I’ll be keeping you company at home, Darling.”
Arielle was overjoyed when she heard that. Although she spent most of her time sleeping, she would very much prefer to have Vinson by her side as she slept.
Snuggling up against Vinson, Arielle was smiling like the happiest person in the world.
On the fourteenth of February, Vinson and Arielle were watching a movie at the theater when Arielle suddenly gave his hand a tight squeeze. “Darling, I think I’m going into labor…”
