(I'm naming your kids, just thought you should know)
You were walking through the mall with your husband, Ludwig and your two darling boys, Ethan and Philip. As they continued walking, you stopped and looked towards a children’s store specifically for girls. You sighed in longing, knowing that you would do whatever you could just to hold a beautiful baby girl in your arms.
You kept staring until Ludwig turned back and noticed the sad look in your eyes. He knew exactly what you were feeling, even though he had everything he could ever ask for, he also wished for a little girl.
“Hey, (y/n), we should get going or the boys will leave us behind.”
You walked slowly towards Ludwig, crossing your arms and hoping he didn’t see the sadness that showed up on your face. You two walked hand in hand towards the exit. His hands were so warm and soft that any depressing thought quickly left.
You looked out to see your two beautiful sons racing each other to the car. Ethan, the eldest, looked more like a mini Ludwig while Philip had your hair but the same stunning blue eyes as your handsome husband. Ethan was calm and collective, but very athletic. At only age 7, he had already made it into the all-star team in soccer. Philip was more creative but very patient and was willing to listen to any one who had a good story. He had a higher academic status than his year older brother, and possibly had the world’s largest library in his room.
You looked at both of them horse playing and knew that you had everything you needed in these two boys. They were a handful but made your life a joy, and nothing was better than having one of them tell you how much they loved you.
(Time Skip to later that night)
“(y/n), are you still awake?” you heard Ludwig say quietly.
“Mmhm,” you mumbled lightly.
“I was thinking, even though we already have our boys, wouldn’t you like to have a little girl in the house?”
You knew where this was going and turned to face him. He had a lustful shade of blue in his eyes that you knew you wouldn’t be able to resist. You looked at him some more moving your sight down to his lips, which were now in a smile.
“Ludwig, could you? I would like a girl very very much.” You said teasingly with a smile on your face.
(Vital Region Invasion Time skip by the Awesome Prussia)
It had been a whole week since that tedious night and you were on your way to drop off the kids to school. After that, you went to go see your doctor.
“Congratulations, Ms. Beilschmidt, you’re pregnant!” squealed your doctor.
You were so excited and anxious and nervous all at once that you could’ve puked. You held it in and ask your most desperate question, what gender is it?
“I’m sorry, but we still won’t know for a couple of weeks.”
The whole day after that went by like a dream. Nothing bothered you, not the man who flipped you off in the freeway, not the teacher who scolded Philip for pushing a boy who said books were stupid, not even the dogs who had managed to make twenty holes in the back yard.
When Ludwig finally came home later in the evening, you told him the news and then later told your sons who took this as if you’d given them the entire world’s supply of candy. The jumped on their beds, screaming they were going to be big (in Ethan’s case, bigger) brothers. Everyone was so happy that it became infectious. You called Gilbert and his girlfriend Elizaveta. They almost made you deaf from their screaming.
Everything was simply perfect at this moment. Nothing could possibly spoil it.
(Alas, another time skip to your eighth month of pregnancy)
You had your head in the toilet for the tenth time today. As your insides were released, you felt Ludwig’s large hands slowly rubbing your back. You coughed for once last time and looked at him. He had a worried, tired look, but all the same he had that fierce determination to make sure he was always there to support you.
You were so fed up with this, but at the same time, you knew your little princess would be worth it. You closed your eyes and pictured the ultrasounds of your child. She was absolutely perfect, and the doctors say she is healthy in every way possible. You felt a kick and your stomach, and not a small one either.
You let out a small whimper of pain as the kicking continued until it finally stop. You stood up, Ludwig helping you by holding your elbow. You suddenly had a huge craving for cucumber smothered in ice cream. As disgusting as it sounded, it was delicious; your stomach wanted some of the most appalling combinations. These cravings are another thing that has to go, you thought to yourself bitterly.
You looked at Ludwig and he immediately knew what to do.
“I’ll bring the ice cream; just wait in the living room.”
At that moment, you loved Ludwig most than all the other times in your wonderful marriage. Of course, you still had your arguments, but you always found a way to get by. You were thinking about all the wonderful memories of your life with Ludwig. Your thoughts swam by your first date with him, then to his proposal, finally to your wedding. Your thoughts landed to your wedding night, where Ludwig finally marked you as his.
Your face started to get warm as this memory was repeating itself, you started to giggle with your eyes closed until you felt a wet spot develop on your dress. You looked down, and didn’t know whether to scream or laugh like a madwoman.
Ludwig was walking towards you until he noticed what you were looking at. His eyes quadrupled in size. He looked like he was going to pass out. Breathing hard, he whispered, “Liebe..”
As soon as he said that he slammed open the front door and carried you bridal style all the way towards the car. You were too shocked to say anything, you just sat in the car still considering whether or not to scream or laugh.
Ludwig said something to you, but you couldn’t make out a word he said. You looked around in the car, wondering where the boys could be, realizing that they had been staying with their uncle Gilbert for the last couple of weeks. You looked at Ludwig who was putting the keys into the ignition with a trembling hand, and you noticed he held an ice cream coved cucumber in the other hand.
You sat there in a daze for the first three minutes until an excruciating hot pain thrashed through your lower parts. The pain was extremely intense. Your breathing quickened and you stabbed your nails into the dashboard to try to calm the pain down. It stopped for about five seconds but then came back even more brutally.
You were screaming your lungs out by the time you got to the hospital. Ludwig still held the cucumber in his hand, his other one in a firm grip with yours. As they put you in a room, you felt the pain subside for a short time. Those few seconds were a heaven to you. The doctor came in and said something in an intangible speech.
You remembered nothing else except the pushing. You were cursing in ever language you knew, squeezing Ludwig’s hand to the point where he was crying out as much as you were. You did as the doctor told, pushing until you could see a shade of white flash above your eyes. Soon later you heard the crying of a child. From that point on everything went black.
When you awoke thirty minutes later, Ludwig was holding a little bundle of pink in his arms. He saw that you had awakened and moved the blanket out of the way so you could see your wonderful daughter.
She was sleeping peacefully, but as she slept she smiled, giving you a flash of a dimple on her right cheek. She had little tufts of golden hair, but what you really wanted to see were her eyes.
“Say hello to your mommy, Yelena.” Ludwig said in the sweetest tone imaginable.
Almost as if on cue, the little bundle began to move, until she finally opened her eyes. They were the exact same shade as yours, she was just so breathtaking. You finally had your little princess.
You looked out of the window from the kitchen and looked out to the back yard. Your gorgeous Yelena was chasing Gilbert with a wooden sword. Sadly, she did not turn out to be the princess you imagined, but rather, a knight.
Instead of playing with dolls, she played with dragons and medieval lords. She was by far the most hyper child you’ve ever met. Always laughing and screaming in delight. She loved getting into trouble, and had to be watched in almost every single moment. But she was your everything, you loved her so much.
You continued to watch as she chased Gilbert some more until he fell after being tackled by the fearsome Yelena. She wrestled with him on the floor, and then proceeded to sit on him while looking at the sunset. Her golden locks were flowing in the wind; her small knight’s armor shimmered in the last rays of sunlight. She looked up at you with her brilliant orbs and smiled, yelling at you that she defeated the evil white dragon of the east.
You went out to join her, with Ludwig following behind you. You all sat watching the sunset, loving the moment of peace between all of you. The calm didn’t last as Gilbert got up only to be tackled back down again by Yelena.
You watched them for a while longer than hugged Ludwig. Giving him a small sweet kiss, you whispered into his ear, “You may have not given me the perfect princess, but you did manage to give me the world’s greatest knight. Thank you so much Ludwig, you have no idea how much I love you.” You kissed him once more, with more feeling in this one, letting him feel how much you loved him.
He grinned right after and nibbled on your neck lightly and said, “I can give you more knights if you want.”
