Lucy had only been pregnant for a little while but it had been an awful time. She constantly was feeling sick and had to throw up and even though she was in her first trimester her back was killing her.
Lucy: O my word, my back is killing me again plus I feel like I have to throw up!
James: To much information, my love. But good news is, is that if your back is hurting in the first trimester that must mean your gonna have twins!
Lucy: I swear to the Creator, James, if you jinx me and I have twins I will not be a happy camper.
James: Oh hush you're just cranky because your back hurts.
Lucy mumbled something foul under her breath as she waddled to the bathroom.
Sunny had gotten up late because she stayed up extra late last night working on her mixology skill, so half awake she made breakfast for everyone.
James: Hey sis, whatcha making for breakfast today?
Sunny: Scrambled eggs and toast. I'm thinking about making pancakes soon but I have to go to the store to pick up a new cookbook so I don't mess them up.
James: Well I wouldn't expect Lucy to eat anything this morning.
Sunny: Why? Is she okay? Is something wrong with the baby?
James: No nothing like that she is just super cranky because everything she eats triggers her to throw up.
Sunny: Wow, Mom never went through that bad of a pregnancy. I hope she'll be okay.
James: She'll be fine, but I don't think the toilet will be.
Later in the day Sunny had hired a photographer to take her picture, she new that she had to take it in her young adult years so it would capture her youth. She wasn't vain or anything she just wanted people to remember her young and vibrant.
Sunny: My butt looks huge in this picture. I'm not sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing.
I think you look fine, Sunny.
Sunny: WHAT. WHO SAID THAT.
Just little ol' me, most people call me Creator but you can call me whatever.
Sunny: What are you doing here? Why are you talking to me?!
Because I talked to your mother also, I help watch over you and this legacy.
Sunny: So...my Mom wasn't insane when I heard her talking to herself?
Nope. She was just talking to me. I've decided to not interfere so much now that the legacy is going okay. But if you need me I will always be around, just call.
Sunny: Okay...hey Creator?
Sunny: Are my Mom and Dad doing okay?
Yes they are Sunny. They're right up here with me and they are at peace.
After her encounter with the creator Sunny decided she needed a drink so she headed outside and fixed herself a Sea on Fire.
James: Hey sis. Sis? SIS.
Sunny: Huh, what?
James: You okay? You seem sad and you're really zoned out.
Sunny: Uh yea I'm fine. Hey I gotta head to work now. Talk to you soon.
Even though Sunny had gone to work and focused on cooking and making drinks her customers would enjoy. She still had to make time for herself so she could enjoy her own life. So she decided that is was about time her and Angelo took their relationship to the next level. She just didn't know how she was going to propose.
Sunny: So how's the baby doing?
Lucy: Well it's about to come out, I can tell you that right now. My morning sickness stopped too, so I'm happy about that. What about you and Angelo, you're the heir and you need to get cracking on the baby making if you want to see your kids get passed their teenage years.
Sunny: GOOD CREATOR LUCY.
Lucy: I'm just saying! You're almost halfway through your young adult years and you aren't even married yet!
Sunny: I know, I know. I have plans okay!
Lucy: I'm just looking out for the safety of the legacy Sunny. I love this family just as much as you do.
Sunny: I know, I'm sorry for getting angry...I just...don't know if I'll make a good mom.
Lucy: Nobody knows if they'll be a good mom Sunny. It's just something you have to learn. For plums sake, my parents didn't even plan on having me and my mom did a great job raising me! Oomph, I swear this baby is laying on my bladder I have to pee, again!
After her little bathroom break, Lucy knew she had to get dressed. She pulled over her usual sweater and tugged it around her bulging belly. Cranky, again because none of her clothes fit, she waddled downstairs to go find James.
James: Hey babe. Woooooah you are HUGE.
Lucy: Yes I am, thanks for the compliment Romeo.
James: Baby you know I love you but honestly I think you might be having twins.
Lucy: Yea I know...looks like you'll be getting your stupid wish!
James: Don't be cranky anymore baby, how bout I give you a massage and some lovins'.
Lucy looked at him through slanted eyes and couldn't help but smile slightly. She loved this man, even though he was a little insensitive sometimes.
While the family was eating Sunny's first ever batch of pancakes there was a knock at the front door.
Lucy: Oh maybe you should go get that.
Sunny: Uh why? It's 7 a.m whoever it is shouldn't be over right now.
Lucy: No, no. I'm preeetty sure you should go see who it is.
James: Lucy? What have you done?
Lucy: Oh noooothiiiing.
Sunny: Um..okay? I'm gonna go get dressed then, I guess.
When she got to the door she was confused and excited all at the same time.
Angelo: Hey sunshine come over here so I can hold you.
Sunny: Angelo! What are you doing here?
Angelo: Your sister-in-law called me and said that you needed me, I thought something was wrong so I rushed over. I didn't even get to finish my breakfast.
Sunny pulled away and looked him in the eyes. She felt safe in his arms. Maybe it was because she knew that if something happened he would protect her, or maybe it was because of how he seemed to enveloped her with his whole body when he hugged her. She knew that Lucy knew what she had been thinking for a while, I guess it was a girls intuition.
Sunny: Angelo I wanna show you something that I've had in mind for a while.
Angelo: What are you doing?
Sunny: I have to continue this legacy and I need a husband. But that's not why I'm proposing to you. I'm proposing to you because even though I'm really serious sometimes, you always know how to take the edge off. You can calm me down if I get really angry plus you're just down right hot.
Angelo: Well sunshine, funny thing is, is that I was going to propose to you when I got here today too. But I guess you beat me to the punch huh?
Sunny: I guess I did, didn't I? So what do you say? Wanna get hitched?
Angelo: You know it babe!
Sunny: So now that, that's done how about you move in with me since we're getting married tomorrow?
Angelo: Alright but I'm a man of honor and I won't sleep in the same bed as you until we're married.
Sunny: Really? Why?
Angelo: My dad always taught me that if I loved someone that I needed to wait, and I adore AND love you so I'm waiting.
Sunny: So you've never done anything?
Angelo: Now sunshine, I wouldn't say I've NEVER done anything, but I've never been in love either.
- Back in the house -
Lucy: I'm in labor.
James: Um what.
Lucy: Yep, I'm cool as a cucumber though.
James: Um, I don't think I AM.
Lucy: Now you calm down sweetheart, you're not the one that is in labor.
James: Yea I know, but I don't wanna see you hurting.
Lucy: I'll be fine, I'm gonna go get some eggs and bacon and try to eat something.
James: Okay, want me to come with?
Lucy: No I'll be fine, keep watching your show sweetpea.
Lucy: Oooooo baby, please let mommy eat just a little bit of food. Okay, no? Alrighty then let's go get you out!
Lucy: Ohhh hello my handsome man! What shall I name you? Hmmmm, I like the name Stark! Hello there my little Stark Belle!
After Lucy had taken care of Stark she went downstairs to finish her eggs and bacon that she had left out. To her surprise she saw Angelo eating some pancakes.
Lucy: Angelo! How'd it go?
Angelo: Well she proposed to me before I could to her.
Lucy: I knew that was gonna happen.
Angelo: Why did you call me then?
Lucy: Because, in the rules of a legacy, the heir has to propose to the other person. The reason for that is the other person has to take their last name.
Angelo: So I'll take the last name Belle?
Lucy: Yuppers! Welcome to the legacy family!
Stark was wailing upstairs to be fed again so Lucy had to excuse herself from the table. The kitchen seemed like a rotating door because no sooner had she left than James came in.
Angelo: Congrats on the baby bro.
James: Thanks man, listen I gotta talk to you.
Angelo: Okay, shoot.
James: You aren't in this legacy for money right? You genuinely love my sister?
Angelo: No I'm not in it for the money. I've lived a lavish lifestyle before so it's not something I'm striving for. Plus I truly love your sister, I'm not just giving her a cute pet name when I call her sunshine. She is literally the light of my life. Before I met her I would go out and party and then wake up to find myself in some unknown woman's bed. Sunny is the first girl I've met that actually cared about ME and not my family.
James: Alright, good. I just have to look out for my little sister, ya know?
Angelo: I got it man, if I had other siblings I would be the same way.
James: Welcome to the family.
True to his word the night before the wedding Angelo slept on the living room sofa, right outside the room from where Sunny was sleeping. He wanted to make sure that if she had a nightmare that he could rush in and console her.
The day of the wedding everyone was jittery with excitement, although under it all there was a slight aura of sadness. Sunny wished her mom and dad could see her get married but she understood that her mom tried her hardest to stay alive for Lucy and James's wedding.
Sunny: So how is Stark, Lucy?
Lucy: Oh he is such an angel! I already called and got him a babysitter so we don't have to have a wailing baby interrupting the ceremony.
Sunny: Awww I wouldn't mind him being there! Although I wouldn't want him near a bunch of strangers.
James: So where are we having it?
Sunny: At the usual place.
Angelo: What's the usual place?
Sunny: At the chapel down the street, the same place that Lucy and James got married at!
Lucy: Oh babe! We can relive our wedding there!
James: We literally just got married a year ago!
Lucy: Oh I suppose you're right. This is about Sunny and Angelo anyways!
When they arrived at the chapel there was a few people already there so Sunny and Angelo thought since they were already there they could celebrate too!
To Sunny's annoyance, although the caterer had come, he wasn't cooking. So even though it was her wedding day she had to cook dinner and bake her own wedding cake.
The wedding party aftermath, so many dirty dishes!
When the whole wedding party got home, everyone was a little juiced so Lucy and James went to go sleep it off. But since it was Sunny and Angelos wedding night, the fun had only just begun.
Sunny: So Mr.Belle, can you sleep in my bed now?
Angelo: Oh Mrs. Belle we will be doing a lot more than sleeping!
And a lot more than sleeping they did!
Sunny: Oh Angelooooo, I have a surprise to tell you!
Thank you for reading today's installment of The Belle Legacy! I hope everyone enjoyed and tune in next time!
