~ Side Story: Family (Part 2) ~
Yup, I jumped out the window, which was closed, so it was shattered to bits after contact with my Magic Armor.
I raised my hand up and shouted: “Colly Tos!”
Four pairs of sexy underwear floated above my head.
Oi! That's a bit too stimulating to be wearing at school! I retorted in my mind.
“ILLSY!!!” came Nanya's shout as she punched the window.
Yup, that one was shattered to bits as well!
“Illsy! What are you doing!” Zoreya opened the window normally, but her cheeks were bright red as a result.
“Oh my, what's the matter, my dear husband?” Ayuseya asked with a calm smile on her lips, but the way she was cracking her knuckles told me I was in mortal danger.
“Nya~ It's breezy!” the cat complained and licked my cheek.
“No time to be punched! Shanteya! Water broke! HURRY!” I shouted.
When I said this, they all told the class to have a free day and jumped out the window. After reaching my location, we all rushed to our house, where Shanteya was waiting for us. When I got there, I found Savannah helping her get into the wheel chair I designed for this moment.
“Ungh... Illsy... the baby is coming...” she told me with a pained expression on her face.
The contractions must have started! I thought.
“Don't worry! Everything will be alright!” I said and the first step I made, I stumbled on my own feet and fell face first on the floor.
“Illsy! This is not the time for a comedy show!” Nanya scolded me.
“Who's doing comedy?!” I retorted as I got up.
“Let's hurry and take you to the Dungeon Core Room.” Zoreya said as she walked past me and left her shield to rest on the wall.
“We're all here for you.” Ayuseya comforted her.
“Yes! Definitely!” I declared.
“Illsy, go and make sure the room is ready.” Nanya told me.
I nodded and went to the room at the end of the hallway. There was no reason to put it in some other place. Once the Dungeon was born, we could move his or her Core wherever we wanted.
When I got there, the walls, floor, everything looked exactly as an actual Dungeon Core Room was supposed to look like, the difference was in the writing on the walls. The information the young Dungeon was supposed to receive from its predecessors was all there, but since I made this place, I made sure to let the Dungeon know that we were his or her family as well as not include any suspicious orders that would usually turn the young Core into a mass-murdering machine of doom. Either way, I quickly checked everything including the Magic Energy inscriptions on the floor, which were responsible for acting as a beacon for the newborn Dungeon.
“Everything is in check.” I said and then looked at the special tent I had installed here.
This was the place where Shanteya was supposed to give birth. There was a comfy table suited for such a process, hot water, sterile towels, everything I could think of, including a window through which she would be able to see the Dungeon Core once it was born.
I double checked everything and just when I had finished, my wives were bringing Shanteya inside.
“Is everything ready?” Nanya asked.
“Yes!” I replied.
Shanteya was helped to lay down comfortably on the table, and everyone prepared for the long hours ahead of us. I connected a simple string of Magic Energy between the Dungeon Core inside her womb and this room. I also made sure to set my own Dungeon Territory to accept the child's own Dungeon Territory. I was able to do this the moment I felt one developing inside of her.
After this, all I had to do was be there and hold the hand of my beloved wife.
“Oh by the mercy of all the gods, my Magic Armor cracked!” I shouted in pain.
“Stop being a whiner, you can regrow your hand anyway!” Nanya retorted.
“Ugh! It still hurts!” I whined.
Well, my wife was an Over Supreme with no less than 40000 points in strength. She could crush diamonds with her hands and turn regular Supremes to mush, so I believed I was entitled to feel slightly worried about my Magic Armor starting to crack under the abnormal amount of pressure generated by her gorilla grip.
“Illsy, if you let go of my hand, I'll murder you!” Shanteya threatened me.
“Yes, my love! Whatever you say my love! You want this hand? Yes, I can regrow another one! Twenty if you need! Ah... it hurts.” I immediately complied while trying to withhold my tears.
“I love you too, Illsy.” she said with a soft smile and then gripped harder when the contraction came.
“OH! MOTHER OF...” I closed my mouth and endure the pain while cracking sounds from my Magic Armor continued to be heard.
That was probably the most intense moment in my entire life... and most threatening one as well. I didn't know who was screaming louder, me or Shanteya?
In the end, after several hours of hard work from my wives, the head of the baby came out and then his body. It was a little baby boy. When this happened, I felt a powerful flow of Magic Energy coming from inside Shanteya's womb and then something created a powerful bright light within the room.
Since I could easily recognize both the presence and the Dungeon Territory of my own child, I turned around and saw him floating there. It was a palm-sized White Crystal Core.
“AWAAA!” the little boy cried after Ayuseya gave him a soft slap on the bottom.
“It's a baby boy.” she told Shanteya.
She was weakened by the effort she was put through during the birthing process, but with a soft and gentle smile, she said “I want to hold him...”
“Let me just clean him up.” Ayuseya said as she took a towel.
While she did this, Zoreya helped Shanteya by wiping her of blood and amniotic fluid. She didn't forget to cast a healing spell on her body to help it regenerate faster.
Nanya walked up to me and saw me standing there, dumbfounded.
“Illsy, unlike the little boy who is a half-dungeon, the child over there is a full one. You have to speak with it.” she told me and gently pushed me from my back.
I was a bit overwhelmed by everything. I wanted to hold the baby boy as well, but this Dungeon child had to be held as well.
It was strange, but as I approached him, I could tell that he was my own.
“Hello...” a little voice came out from the small white crystal.
Shanteya was surprised and tears gathered in the corner of her eyes.
“Her voice... her first word...” she said.
Yes, the Dungeon Core here was a 'she' not a 'he', although once she grew, this sort of thing wouldn't matter that much anymore.
“Hello. Can you see us? Can you hear us?” I asked like I was speaking with a space shuttle located somewhere between Earth and Mars.
“Yes...” the shy reply came.
“Well... I am your father, Illsyore Deus, and you are my daughter. Do you understand?” I asked.
“Yes... You are my father, and I am your daughter. Who is my mother?” she asked.
“The woman inside that tent over there. The one who is crying. Her name is Shanteya Dowesyl Deus.” I told her.
“My mother... and that baby? Who is he?” she asked.
“That's your twin brother. You two will have a lot of fun together playing and growing up as children do.” I said with a smile on my lips.
I approached the Dungeon until I was only one step away from her.
“Why is mother crying?” she asked innocently.
“Because I'm happy... Happy to see you have been born safely... Happy to hear your voice.” Shanteya told her through her tears.
“She's happy to finally meet you, little one.” I told my daughter and then I carefully embraced the tiny crystal. “We are all happy to finally meet you.”
“I'm happy too... father, mother... little brother.” she said.
The happiness I felt in that moment, it couldn't be explained through mere words, but I knew that I wanted to do everything I could to help them grow up and let them be as happy as they could. Just for that, I was going to prepare a SPECIAL dungeon for when my little girl was going to bring home her first boyfriend. It was a feeling all fathers could empathize with.
