Authors Note: This chapter is a little longer than my normal ones. There was so much I was trying to get across, and it wasn’t happening with 30 pictures!
Fraser’s Point of View
“W-what about my boss?” I stuttered, my eyes wide and full of fear. There was thousands of thoughts running through my head, as to what she was going to say. Of course I thought the worst. Like he was some mass murdered who was out to get me, so I was going to be put under lock down, or something.
“Can we sit?” she sighed, gearing her eyes towards the small table. I nodded my head, and we made our way over to it.
“First, let me introduce myself. My name is Ester Sage, and I-… I did something thinking that it was the right thing to do.” she sighed, twirling the lose strand of her hair.
“What did you do? And what does this have to do with Crimson?” I snapped at her, becoming obviously annoyed.
She cringed at the name of my boss, and clenched her left fist. “Crimson…” she growled “It’s what he’s been doing to those poor babies!”
“What are you talking about? He’s been helping women carry their babies full term?” I stated, rubbing the top of my forehead.
“No, he’s been testing on babies and killing little embryos! Let me just explain… Your boss, Crimson, has been trying to create this so called super human. It’s suppose to be intelligent beyond measures. The government is willing to pay top dollar to have such a human under there wing, to help our country. Of course, the way many scientist are doing it, is completely LEGAL. The way Crimson is doing it… not so much.”
“Are you INSANE?!” I shouted, throwing my hands in the air “Crimson isn’t doing any of that! I work there, I would have seen this!”
“Would you just LISTEN!? This is all the truth I’m telling you! He’s telling women that it’s for one thing, then once the woman is about 4 months pregnant, he test’ her and if the baby doesn’t meet his protocols… he kills it. If the child does meet it, he lets the woman have the child, and he test and probes them! If the baby doesn’t have the high IQ he’s looking for, he dumps the kid off somewhere!”
My head was spinning, and frustration filled my throat “You expect me to believe you?! How do you even know any of this?!”
She turned her head from me, and a single tear fell from her eye “Because I was one of those women. I fell for his lies, and his convincing ways. He told me I was doing this to help a family in need. Parents that wanted a child, but could never have one. The money was great, and I was so down on my luck, so I agreed to it.”
I sprung from my chair, and gasped “He killed your baby?!”
“No.” she cried, placing a hand on her stomach “Not yet. I found out what he was doing by a folder he dropped. I was in his office, two weeks after he planted the fertilized eggs. He told me it was for a check up, so of course I agreed to come in. He had a pile of paperwork he had to put away before he could give me an ultra sound. On his way out the door, the folder dropped. Of course, me being the curious type… I read it. About EVERYTHING! I took off out of the lab before he had the chance to do it to me.”
“I don’t understand? Where do I come in? How did you find me?”
“Because you were in there… listed next to “donor.” My donor.”
“What does that MEAN!?” I shouted, the feeling of a lump forming in my throat.
“I… I’m pregnant with your baby.”
My jaw dropped wide, and I just stood there speechless. I didn’t know what to say! Here was this woman, she came from out of no where, tells me my boss is a nut case, and that she’s pregnant with my baby! That’s a lot to take in, in only a short amount of time!
“My-My-MY baby?! He- You- WHAT?!” I finally sputtered out “How could this happen? I never- OH, you got to be kidding me! That’s what he wanted “it” for?! That JERK!”
“Now please! You have to go to the lab, and get that folder! Bring it to the police! I can’t even live another day, knowing that another child could be harmed… or worse.”
“You mean you don’t have it?”
“No… I was so scared, that on my way out it flung out of my hands. I’m sorry Fraser.”
I must be out of my mind. I can’t believe I’m actually breaking into my bosses office! I mean… how do I even know this isn’t some kind of trick?! Honestly I didn’t know what to believe. So I just followed my gut, and went over to the lab.
“Fraser. Your a dumb ass for doing this.”
Once inside, I disabled the alarm and crept around to the other side of his desk. My stomach was doing somersaults, and sweat was coming from places I didn’t even know it could!
I placed myself down in his chair, and started rooting through his drawers. I was flipping papers, and tossing things to the floor. I didn’t know what I was looking for, and I could barely concentrate because I was scared outside of my wits! I mean, what if he catches me?!
“Where is it?!”
Does it even exist?
Just as I was emptying another drawer, I heard this loud thud come from the next room over.
“CRAP!” It’s him. It’s got to be him! He’s going to come in here, and murder me. Then throw my body off a cliff! OH GOD! I got to get out of here!
I scrambled out of his office, and into the main room! PERFECT! The total opposite of what I wanted to do! It was so dark, I must have gone through the wrong door! But the moment I stepped inside, every thought that was coursing through my brain came to a complete stop. For what I saw, could never be unseen.
BABIES! Small little infants, being hooked up to machines and bags of god-knows-what! Ester was right, he WAS testing on babies, and I’m pretty sure he’s been killing them too!
I just stood there in shock, as I watched him pour liquids together, and add them into yet another bag of his concoctions! Was he planning on hooking them up to that?! Just putting random poisons inside there little bodies, so he can make MONEY?!
You see? This is where I draw the line! No way is he getting away with this.
“CRIMSON DROP IT NOW!” I shouted, pointing a finger at him from the other side of the glass.
He just kept on working, minding his own business. My blood started to boil, and I clenched my fist. I was about to shout out his name again, when I realized the glass was sound proof. Good going Fraser…
Without giving it much thought, I slowly made my way around the corner and then inched open the door. The babies were sleeping, and Crimson was still working. I tried my hardest not to disturb him, and grab the infants as quickly as possible.
I made my way over to the first baby, and reached down to pull out the needle that was jabbed into her arm. As I started to pull her immediate reaction was to shoot open her eyes, and let out a whimper.
Of course Crimson heard the babies cry, which made him spin around to face me. “What are YOU doing here, Fraser?” he gasped, bringing himself closer to me “Are you… touching my experiment?”
“EXPER- Are you nuts?! These are children! You can’t just pluck and probe them! It’s sick!”
“SICK!? Sick is working 6 years on the same project only to have it fail on you OVER and OVER! I’m at wits end! They never come out like I plan, so I was doing away with yet again, MORE failed experiments.” he shouted, spritz of spit landing on my cheek.
“YOU MONSTER!” I screeched, shoving at his shoulders.
“You can’t just kill innocent human beings! These babies belong to a loving mother and father, and your robbing them of that by KILLING them! Give them back, you asshole! Don’t lie to women saying it’s to “help” people!”
“Robbing them of a parent? But all the children WERE my mine.” he cackled, casting me an evil grin “Now get out of my way, I have business to take care of…”
He tried to make his way around me, but I stood my ground. I was not letting him touch them! Not again, this was stopping NOW! If I could of, I would of called the cops… but there was just no time. I just had to stop him myself.
“NO! I’m not letting you hurt them!”
He threw his hands up sarcastically, and laughed “OH! Someone save me from the scary fag! I’m shaking in my lab coat!! PLEASE! You don’t stand a chance against ME!”
And with that he came at me, punching and kicking… over and over. I wanted to fight back, but I was afraid the babies would get harmed. So I took each and every hit…
It became harder to see with every blow. So many times I wanted to punch him, but I couldn’t. I just kept standing there, letting him do it. On top of that, the babies started to scream. Then the heart monitor started beeping rapidly. I wanted to do something but darkness was taking over my eyes.
“Nighty night, Fraser.”
But like I said before… the glass was sound proof. So Crimson didn’t notice when Jackie and Lear came in. He didn’t notice that Jackie picked up the phone, and dialed a “number” on it. It was never part of my plan for her to randomly show up at the lab with Lear… but HECK I’m so glad they did! I was honestly just winging it!
Within the last couple of blows to my face, the cops arrived. They bust in through the testing lab’s door and pulled Crimson off of me. I was knocked out cold. My entire body shut down, and I was completely unaware of what was going on around me.
When I finally did wake up, the cops had Crimson outside on his knees, with his hands behind his head.
“-You have the right to attorney, if you can not afford an attorney one will be appointed to you. Do you understand these rights as they have been read to you?”
After the paramedic cleaned my face up some, I went over and talked to Jackie.
“Dr. Sponge… errr.. Jackie, you saved my LIFE!” I exclaimed, nearly giving her a hug. “How did you know I was here?!”
“Well, I.. uhhh.. didn’t. I was coming here with Lear to do some, erm… paperwork? YEA, paperwork! When I saw Crimson beating on you, and those little babies hooked up like that! The first thing I thought of doing was calling the police.” she sighed, placing a hand on my shoulder “I’m just glad your alright.”
“Where is Lear, anyways?”
Before she got the chance to answer, yet another police officer came over to us.
“Well, we pretty much have everything taken care of, except for one thing… who’s children are those? The paramedics already checked them throughly, and there perfectly healthy. We’re just wondering who they belong to?”
“Well, the father… isn’t in the picture.” I coughed, adverting my eyes towards Jackie “But if you can just give me some time I can find the mother.”
“Alright, then I’ll just call social services to come and retrieve them. Thank you for your time, and effort.” the cop smiled, pulling out his cell phone.
“WAIT!” I shouted, pulling his arm down “If you can just release them into my custody. I’ll make sure they are put with their mother, in 3 weeks tops. I just can’t see them go through that.”
“I’m not sure I can do that, Mr. Terrey.” he sighed, tipping his hat slightly.
“Sir.” Jackie interrupted “Fraser, is more than certified to be able to keep children in his household. It’s only for a short time, and he will find those children’s mother faster than any system. Don’t you want to see them with their rightful family?”
The cop sighed again, and rubbed the back of his neck “Fine, but 3 weeks only! If she’s not found in that time, there being taken into foster care. No if’s, ands, or buts about it! Oh, and if anything happens to them, it’s YOUR head!”
“Don’t worry sir, I won’t let you down.”
After about another hour, I finally found myself going home. I had to run to the store really fast and pick up some things for the babies. I promised the officer I would take care of them, and I really planned on doing so! It shouldn’t take me that long to find their mother, I’m sure Kyle won’t mind them being around for a little bit.
I walked through the door at about 2:30 am. I had one baby in one hand, and one baby in the other. I placed both of their car seats down by the front door, then called out Kyle’s name. He came rushing out of the bathroom, and when he saw my face he flung into my arms.
“FRASER?! What happened? Are you alright?” he screeched into my ear, tightening his grip with every breath.
“It’s a long story.” I laughed, kissing him on the neck “Let’s just say, Crimson isn’t my boss anymore. He did some crappy stuff, and now he’s going to be locked up for a LONG time.”
He breathed onto my neck, and smiled into my ear “I’m just glad your safe.”
Before I had the chance to respond, one of the twins let out a small whimper. Kyle loosened his grasp, and peered over my shoulder. “What was- Are those babies?!”
“Yea. Crimson was going to kill them. That’s the long story, I was trying to avoid. I’m going to care for them for 3 weeks, or just until I can find their mother. The sooner the better. Don’t worry, I’m setting their cribs up out here, they won’t be that much of a bother.” I laughed, trying to kiss Kyle.
He pushed me away, and his nostrils flared “Are you kidding me?! You bring some foster kids into our home, without even asking me?! What is WRONG with you?! Did you get slapped around too much tonight or something?!”
“Whoa, what?!” I gasped, taking a double take “Did you not hear a word I said!? Those babies were going to DIE tonight, and I saved them. Well… me and my lab partners did. It’s not permanent, I’m going to start looking through the files tomorrow so I can find their mother.”
“Good for you! I’m glad your such a hero, now give them back! I’m not living 3 whole weeks with whiny, disgusting babies!” he shouted, pointing towards the twins.
“Your actually serious? You want me to just go dump them off an a orphanage, just because you don’t want to deal with them!? There just freaking babies, there not going to ruin your life, you ASS!”
“If you don’t get rid of them right now, I’m leaving.”
“No. Just until you learn how to respect me, and not go and do crap behind my back. You can call me when your done with your little old mother hubbard crap. I’m not a built in babysitting service, so I’m not watching any kids!”
“Well you can forget it!” I screamed, clenching my fist to my side “There not going ANYWHERE!”
“Then GOOD-BYE!” he shouted, heading towards the door “Call me when the brats disappear!”
“Disappear? Oh, haven’t you heard… I’m going to be a father!”
SLAM! He shut that door so hard, I thought it was going to fall off the hinges! The babies started screaming, and now I just reminded myself of something, I totally forgot…
I really am going to be a father!
After placing the babies down, I went and headed to bed myself. After that thought crossed my mind again, I started really feeling light headed. Here I was thinking that I was only keeping some other woman’s children for 3 weeks. When in reality a small baby –my small baby- is in the process of growing RIGHT now.
I really just needed some sleep. This was WAY to much in one night…
Following the next few days, I made a descison I thought was best. I called up Ester, and asked her if she wanted to live with me until the baby was born. She told me since she wasn’t going to keep it, and that she saw I truly wanted it… she agreed. I was a little taken back by the fact she wanted nothing to do with it. But she told me that this baby was never meant to be kept by her, but to bring happiness to another. Right about now all I’m feeling is stress and anger, but who knows what the future holds?
On the first night she was there, majority of it was spent puking her guts up in the bathroom. At this point, I was still unsure about the pregnancy. I believed it was real, but at the same time I didn’t. I really wanted to do everything I could for her, but in my mind I still had my doubts.
Besides, my main attention was poured onto the twins. Whom I learned were called Candi and Marcella. Candi looked just like her father… poor thing. While Marcella looked just like her mother, but with her father’s hair and eyes. Overall, they were amazing kids and I honestly enjoyed having them around.
Sure they kept me busy, and often times kept me up at night… but I really grown attached to them. Since I was out of work for a bit ( the lab was trying to transfer over a new head boss) I got to spend loads of time with them, and once or twice I caught them calling me “Dada”.
Even when they were at their worst, I was always there to sort things out. Many a times Marcella climbed up on the table, and Candi would cry because she didn’t know how to get up there. All I could do was laugh at how adorable they were, but then of course correct them and tell them it was bad to climb on tables.
“Shhh, Candi. No tell dada.”
“I wanna go up! I wanna go UP!”
It wasn’t until after they were gone, that it hit me hard. Their mother was found, and after explaining everything that happened to them, she welcomed the twins with open arms. Like Ester, she to thought the girls were going to a loving family. We of course gave her a choice to put them up for adoption, but she refused. She said she would rather raise them herself. It made me bitter-sweet to see her kids reunited with her. I’m sure she’ll make an amazing mother. I knew she was a good person from the first time I saw her in the lab, so many months ago. (She was the black haired woman, who was getting tests done on her.)
But with the children gone, I had free time to do things that I wanted. Like gardening. It was peaceful, and it took my mind off of everything that was going on. From Ester being pregnant, to Kyle not returning my phone calls…
“Good morning, Fraser.” Ester sighed, and I turned to face her. When I did, my mouth fell open and my eyes stayed glued to her stomach. She was here a little over 4 months, and I’d never seen her stomach do that before!
“Is that?” I gasped, pointing to her tummy.
“The baby?” she laughed, stretching out her stomach “What else would it be?”
It was at that moment, that I officially believed that there was a growing life inside of her! MY baby, was inside of her.
“Wow… you look different.” I smiled, shaking my head “Uhh.. do you need anything? Are you hungry? Maybe you should sit down…”
I was completely done for. My fatherly instincts finally kicked in, and there was nothing I wouldn’t do to make sure that my baby was protected.
No matter what Ester did, or where she went, I felt like I always had to be there! Even if she was just goofing around in the garden’s sprinkler, I was right there. Gawking at her stomach. I couldn’t stop looking!
“Stop staring, and join me! The baby isn’t going anywhere.”
Crap… She always knew when I was watching.
Time just seemed to pass me by. Before I knew it, Ester was 8 months pregnant, and ready to give birth any day now! It was kind of weird to think about, but at the same time it was exciting. I just wished Kyle was here to see this. I’m sure he would have warmed up to the whole baby idea. Really, I never even got to sit down and explain everything to him! He stormed off so fast that night and he STILL hasn’t called me since. I just don’t get it? Love is about sacrifices, but yet he hasn’t made any. I’ve done so much for him, but he’s always down my throat. I love Kyle more than air itself, I hate being separated from him. I’d just wish he’d come to his senses.
“Whoa, someone is active tonight!” I laughed, rubbing Ester’s protruding belly.
“Tonight!? Your little monster is ALWAYS on the move. This kid never sleeps!”
It was around 6:56 pm, when it happened. I was trying on my old science outfit, out of pure boredom… when I heard her scream. I rushed out of the bedroom, and watched as she clenched her stomach.
“The baby!” she cried out, before screaming once more.
Of course me being the drama queen that I am… I freaked. I didn’t know what to do, or how to do it!
“What happens NOW?!” I screeched, jumping all around “Do I catch it or something!?
“Just get me to a hospital!!”
Hospital it is!
12 hours later, and it was finally over. The birth went smoothly, and I only passed out once! After two days we all went home, and Ester said her final good-byes.
“Well… I guess this is it.” she sighed, placing Kaylee in the crib. “I just want to let you know, that your beautiful and will be treasured by your father.”
“Are you sure you don’t want to be in their lives, Ester?” I asked, cradling Lia.
“No, that’s okay. You take care of them. Your a great person Fraser, and while I was here you took care of us well. I’m sorry there was a second one, she kind of just hid herself in there.”
I looked down at Lia in my arms, then over at Kaylee “It’s fine. I kind of have a thing for twin girls…” I smiled, placing a gentle kiss on her soft little head.
“Good bye Fraser.” Ester smiled “And good luck with Kyle. I wish you both happiness.”
“Yea, and so do I.”
Thanks for reading! I hope everything is clear to everyone now. Crimson was a very disturbed person. He kept having failed children with many women, so he was going to do away with the last of them. His next mission was to use Fraser’s genes (because he is so smart) to try and get this super smart human. He had special concoctions injected into the fertilized egg before hand to try and make them smart, but like I said… always failed. Ester found out about this, and one thing lead to another.
Oh and the only reason Ester looked like Kyle, is for similarity reasons. Kyle is the real 2nd parent to Kaylee and Lia, not Ester. Just, it’s more realistic than a man having babies… ._. Thank you Emy for the idea ❤ I lurve you, for saving me from headaches<3
Bonus stuff for no apparent reason: In case many of you didn’t know, I’m in love with Jed’s sim Lear. Always have been, always will. Alright now that, that is established… I didn’t DO this! XD I guess you all know what they were both doing at the science lab that late 😉
Tsk… tsk… someone forgot to cover up! 😉 I guess no more late night flings in the lab for them anymore!! xD Jed, can’t you see? It’s always been fate for me and Lear ;P Oh, and shortly after they had a shot gun wedding, minus the shot gun 0.0.
