True Love Never Goes Away Ch. 20byAshiraDatya©
"Leigh, I'm going to take a shower while the kids are napping, do you need anything? Are you doing okay?" Melanie peered at her sister in concern. The further along Leigh got in her pregnancy, the more anxious she became.
"I'm okay, I think. I think I'm just going to sit here with my feet up and read this book before all of my personal time vanishes," Leigh answered. Melanie laughed and nodded.
"I have the receiver to the baby monitor in the bathroom and one of the other ones is out here, so if you need anything, just call out for me and I'll be out as soon as I can get my robe on," Melanie answered.
"I'll be fine Mel, go take your shower and relax a bit," Leigh said with a laugh.
"Okay," Melanie agreed, before heading off towards her and Jason's bedroom.
Melanie walked into the bathroom and turned the water on in the shower. She quickly pulled her clothes off, let them drop to the floor and stepped under the streams created by the four shower heads attached to the wall; she moaned when the massaging shower head pounded onto her back.
"Hey Leigh." Leigh looked up to see Jason walking into the house.
"You're home early," Leigh commented. Jason nodded and shrugged.
"Slow day at the office. Where's Mel?" Jason wanted to know.
"Shower," Leigh answered. Jason thanked her and headed off towards the master bathroom.
"Leigh, is something wrong?" Melanie asked when she heard the door open and close.
"Leigh is fine." Melanie stuck her head out the shower door in looked at Jason in surprise. "It was slow at the office so I cut out early," Jason added. Melanie watched as Jason tugged at his clothes until they had joined hers before sliding into the shower.
"And what do you think you're doing?" Melanie asked with a bemused smile.
"This," Jason said. He lowered his head and pressed his lips to hers, his hand slid up her body and curled gently around her breast, squeezed and teased her nipple. Melanie moaned and wrapped her arms around him. "Have I told you lately that you're beautiful?" Jason asked sliding a hand down her mostly flat abdomen that was just slightly rounded, evidence of her past pregnancies. "Or how much I love you?" he murmured before trailing kisses down her belly and sucked on her clit.
"Jace!" Melanie gasped.
"I love you," Jason told her softly, nibbled gently on her clit as he slid his middle finger deep within her. He looked at her in surprise as Melanie pushed him away but chuckled when she rolled him onto his back and straddled him. "Mel," he groaned when she eased herself on his straining cock. His hands gripped her hips as he moved her up and down over him, pulled a nipple into his mouth and nibbled on the hardened nub, eliciting a loud moan from Melanie and she dug her nails into his shoulders. Jason raised his face to Melanie's and kissed her hard before rolling her onto her back; he took control and began thrusting hard and fast within her. Melanie buried her face in Jason's neck to muffle her scream of pleasure as she came, her orgasm triggered his and Jason kissed her hard as his seedless cum shot inside her.
Breathing hard, Jason pressed a kiss to Melanie's forehead and they lay together, held each other, just taking comfort in the other. Finally, after a few minutes, Jason reluctantly pulled away from Melanie. "It's a good thing I had that surgery," Jason murmured.
"Why's that?" Melanie asked sleepily.
"Because if I hadn't, we probably would have another baby in nine months," Jason answered with a laugh. Melanie rolled her eyes. "I can't keep my hands off of you," he reminded her.
"I don't mind your hands on me," Melanie said quietly, her eyes were soft and full of love for him.
"Why don't you get some more sleep, and I'll take care of the kids when they wake up," Jason suggested.
"Mkay," Melanie murmured, stretching before lowering her head back to her pillow. Jason covered her up carefully then pulled his clothes back on.
"I love you Mel," Jason said quietly.
Melanie smiled back sleepily. "I love you too," she murmured before he walked out the door.
"Is mommy okay?" Jason stopped short in the doorway of the living room when he saw Marine sitting on the couch next to Leigh with a look of concern on her face. Jason swallowed and met Leigh's eyes and growled when he saw she was trying not to laugh.
"Mommy's fine," Jason assured his daughter.
"I heard her scream," Marine said, sounding older than her years. Jason knelt down in front of Marine and gave her a hug and a kiss.
"Mommy's fine. I promise," Jason told his daughter, gave Leigh a look of annoyance at her chuckle. "Would you like a snack?" he asked, trying to change the subject.
"Could I have an apple?" Marine asked.
Jason rolled his eyes. "You and your apples," Jason said with a grin, but he went into the kitchen with Marine on his heels to cut up an apple for her to eat.
"How are you doing kiddo?" Jason asked when he returned to the living room.
"My back hurts," Leigh admitted. "It's been sore all day," she said with sigh.
"Well, your back is bound to hurt, you've gained weight with the baby," Jason reminded her with a small smile. Leigh groaned and laughed. "Here, turn around and I'll work on your back a little," he offered. Leigh turned so her back was to Jason and he began kneading the knots away. "You aren't that tense," Jason observed. He studied Leigh when she made a small gasp of pain. "Leigh, sweetie, when are you due?" Jason wanted to know.
"Three weeks from yesterday," Leigh answered.
"And what is going on in here?" Jason and Leigh looked up when Steve walked into the living room.
"Just helping out the only pregnant woman in the house," Jason said with a laugh. "Leigh has been having back problems lately," he added.
"It's just a back spasm," Leigh protested.
"She has three weeks left," Jason told his dad, reading the expression on Steve's face correctly.
"Any cramps in your abdomen?" Steve asked.
"A few, not too many, but they're probably just braxton-hicks," Leigh answered. Steve studied Leigh carefully.
"How long has your back been spasming?" Steve wanted to know.
"A few days," Leigh answered. Steve knelt down in front of Leigh and took her pulse. "I'm fine, what's the big deal with a few back aches? I'm pregnant, I've gained twenty pounds, my back is supposed to hurt," Leigh grumbled as she struggled to her feet. Jason and Steve exchanged glances but turned back to Leigh when she groaned loudly.
"How long have you been having pain like that?" Steve asked, exchanging knowing looks with Jason.
"About an hour," Leigh murmured.
"How often?" Jason asked, reaching for the phone.
"Every twenty minutes," Leigh answered.
"I'll call Paul," Jason said and grabbed the phone.
"Why? He's working, I'm fine," Leigh protested.
"Leigh, you're describing the early stages of labor," Jason said gently while he waited to be connected to Paul's work station.
"I feel ..." Leigh stopped protesting and sat back on the couch as another cramp passed through her.
"Wonderful, Paul's in a meeting," Jason grumbled. "Put me through to his voice mail," he told the secretary. "Paul, it's Jason, I'm taking Leigh to Siani Hospital, when you get this message, if you haven't heard anything else, come straight there," Jason said before hanging up. "Dad, Mel's napping, will you stay here? Marine's eating an apple, the boys and Jessi are napping as well," Jason said calmly. Steve nodded and helped Leigh off the couch.
"Leigh!" Paul exclaimed when the nurse showed him into the delivery room. Jason patted his sister in law's hand and backed away when Paul practically rushed the bed.
"I'm okay," Leigh said softly. "And yes, the baby is coming. I'm dilated four centimeters," she added.
"Do you want me to stay or go?" Jason asked quietly. Leigh took a deep breath as a contraction rolled through her.
"Stay," Paul answered, a look of panic on his face. Jason chuckled.
"Paul, you'll be fine," Jason said, as Paul sat in the chair that Jason just vacated.
"How badly is this going to hurt?" Leigh asked when the discomfort of the contraction passed.
"I'm not the one to ask kiddo, but Mel delivered two without any medication at all, there wasn't time," Jason answered.
"Is it bad now?" Paul asked Leigh, reached for her hand.
"It hurts, but it's pretty manageable," Leigh answered.
"I need to call home and check on Mel and the kids," Jason said. Paul nodded and watched his brother in law walk out of the room.
"Mel, what are you doing here?" Leigh asked a few hours later when Melanie walked into the room.
"Julie gave me a ride, I had to see my only sister before the baby came," Melanie answered with a smile.
"I'm ready to strangle Paul," Leigh admitted after Paul had left the room to get a cup of ice water for her to drink.
"What is he doing?" Melanie wanted to know.
"Every time I have a contraction, he just gets so jumpy and touchy ... during the last one, he was stroking my arm, and my leg and my abdomen. I wanted to grab him by the balls and squeeze as hard as I could," Leigh grumbled. Melanie laughed and hugged her sister gently.
"How are you doing?" Melanie asked, sitting down next to the bed.
"It hurts. I didn't know it would hurt this badly," Leigh admitted. Both girls looked up when Paul walked back into the room with the cup of water and as he closed the door behind him, another contraction gripped Leigh and she grabbed Melanie's arm as a loud cry of pain escaped her. Melanie merely said, "Breathe." as Leigh squeezed her hand. Paul watched helplessly until the contraction ended and Leigh let go of Melanie's hand.
"Are you sure you don't want an epidural?" Paul asked, setting the cup of water on the night stand.
"If Mel can do this twice without one, I can too," Leigh panted. Melanie took a deep breath and let it out slowly.
"Don't use me as a reason not to have pain medication Leigh. I know how badly it hurts," Melanie said.
"I don't want an epidural. The morphine is taking the edge off," Leigh told them. None of them said anything as a nurse walked into the room.
"I'm just going to check your progress now," the nurse said as she pulled on her medical gloves. Paul waited impatiently while Melanie hid a smile behind her hand before she tucked a strand of hair behind her ear. "You're making wonderful progress. You're at nine centimeters. You'll be pushing very soon," the nurse announced. "I'll go inform your doctor," she added.
"You're doing great Leigh, just great," Paul said, relieved when she loosened the grip on his hand.
"Oh shut up Paul! In fact, why don't you just get out!" Leigh shouted, pulling her hand away. Paul couldn't hide the hurt in his eyes.
"She doesn't mean it!" Melanie exclaimed. "Leigh, I know it hurts, just calm down sweetie and breathe. You're almost there," she said to her sister. "Paul, just hold her hand and wipe her forehead," Melanie told the younger man. Paul nodded and slid his hand back into Leigh's.
"Well?" Jason asked when Melanie walked into the house later that night and sank onto the couch.
"To Paul's dismay, they had a little girl," Melanie answered, remembering the look on her brother in law's face when the doctor had told them the sex of the baby.
"What did Paul say?" Jason wanted to know.
"That they'd have to keep trying. I thought Leigh was going to rip his balls off right then and there," Melanie said with a chuckle. Jason laughed and shook his head.
"They'll come around," he said with a grin.
"They named her after mom, named the baby Sue Ellen," Melanie added.
"And continued the Gone with the Wind theme," Jason said with a chuckle.
"If Leigh is hell bent on continuing that theme, Paul may get a hell of a shock when they do have a boy; she may try and name him Ashley," Melanie giggled. Jason covered his face with his hands and laughed.
"You know what this means don't you?" Jason asked after a minute.
"I get to be the one to spoil the baby and send her home," Melanie said with a devilish grin.
"And none of the midnight feeds and sore breasts," she added.
"Which means more play time for me," Jason said with a grin before he lowered his lips to hers, slid his hands up under her shirt to tweak a pointed nipple. Melanie moaned and gasped when Jason pulled her into his arms and carried her into the bedroom.
