Research, Research, and more Research

Being up for 96 hours can put anyone in a bad mood but I had no time for emotion. I wasn't Wesley...I was a machine, obsorbing every drop of information possible. After not sleeping for four days I was a expert on Wolfram&Hart. I hadn't bathed, shaved, and I'd only eaten what was brought to me. I only left my chair to piss. I smelled like hell but my magicks was stronger and my knowledge on the evil firm was greater. I even called up contacts back in LA. The third day of my campaign we received Lilah's original contract. The damn thing was over 200 pages long and had over fifty signatures from Lilah. I was only on the seventy-third page and so far came up with nothing. I couldn't believe there was a magicks clause; if the employee was a warlock or sorceress of any kind by birth their powers were bound and controlled by the firm for anyway they saw fit. They'd even strip unknowing people of the birthrite magick. It came to the point where my eyesight was so blurry I didn't realize I'd fallen asleep until Lilah was shaking me awake.

Ever since finding out that the firm wanted our baby and would stop at nothing to get it, Wes had gone into full research lock down. He didn't leave the damn library of his for days, not even to sleep or eat. I only went in that room when I needed to. i spent the last several days going to my doctor's appointments and birthing classes with Roger.

Roger was scared shitless enough for the both of us about what Wes was doing to himself. He'd been into the library to check on him for me a few times. At one point I'd asked Roger how Wes was and his only repky was, "I think he's gone insane, like bat shit crazy.." Wes got worse after my contract arrived. He spent hours on end flipping through the pages and back again to do double and sometimes triple checks.

I walked into the library and found him half asleep on the desk. I gently shook him. "Wes take a break and eat something or god take a shower. You keep going like this and you'll kill yourself. I can't have that I needd you around I can't raise the baby on my own, or hell with Roger's help. You're starting to scare me and the baby. Now please take a break and get out of this room." I'd started using the baby as an exscue to get him to do things for me lately.

Sitting up with a yawn I sighed."I'm just trying so hard and I can't find anything to help luv...", my voice trailed off as she spoke of the baby. Touching her stomach I spoke in my head because I knew how much it unnerved Lilah. Leaning forward I kissed it and stood up."You're right...I'm gonna take a shower and meet you and Roger downstairs for dinner."
Mar. 18th, 2007 09:35 pm (UTC)
"Relax Wes you'll find something I know you will." I smiled and kissed him. "Alright yes go take a shower and I'll meet you downstairs." I waited to make sure he was really going to take a shower. Once he started to walk out of the room and towards the bathroom I locked the office so he couldn't go back in after his shower. I met Roger downstairs. "I managed to get him to leave the room, take a shower and come have dinner with us." I smiled showing Roger the key.

'You are so naughty.', Roger chuckled looking at the key in Lilah's hand.'You should be careful though, he's gone crazy...you don't want to anger a crazy man, especially one with magickal powers.'

Loosing track of time I was in the shower until my skin was wrinkled. I scrubbed so much my pale skin was red. Walking to the mirror I damn near jumped at the body staring back at me; puffy eyes, fuzzy face, and depressed expression. I closed my eyes and inhaled deep yet slowly. Opening my eyes the same image was in the mirror. Grabbing my razor I went to work on my facial hair. Once again a concept of time let me as I went to work on fixing myself up. Touching my smooth face and pushing back my hair I felt human again. I shrunched up my nose as I picked up the pile of clothes I'd been wearing. Dropping them into the hamper I got dressed; button down, fresh khaki slacks, and house slippers made up my outfit. As I made my way downstairs I rolled up my sleeves, preparing to eat. Reaching the bottom of the stairs I realized how long I'd actually taken because Lilah and Roger were in the living room watching t.v. while Cecila cleaned the kitchen.

"I guess I missed dinner.", I huffed before taking a seat next to Lilah. Kissing her cheek I touched her stomach. I loved being intimate with my wife but it felt a bit strange with Roger right there. I cared for the man like my own brother but at times his presence was annoying. I couldn't deny the fact that he helped Cecilia turn our mansion into an actually home and for that I was greatful. Our child was going to have a loving environment, at any cost.

I smirked at Roger.the key still in my hand. "Yeah well luckly for us I know how to handle him, even when he gets a little crazy."

I smiled as Wes walked into the livingroom, and sat down on the sofa with me and Roger. "Yeah you did, but Celila left you a plate in the kitchen." I looked at him as he laid a hand on my stomach, then looked at Roger. I sighed. "So have a nice relaxing time in the shower? You were in there for ..well longer than me." Roger tried not to snicker at this, as he listened to us talk.
Mar. 31st, 2007 12:41 am (UTC)
'He even took longer than me..and that's long.', Roger laughed.'You sure look scrubbed...all of us appreciate it.'

I rolled my eyes at Roger.
"Four days in a row...at least I can say I've learned alot of everything I'm not looking for.", I let out a sigh."I'm going to find that plate."
Mar. 31st, 2007 01:20 am (UTC)
"I told you you'll find something, you just have to keep looking, but not anymore tonight." I noticed Roger's look, when I mentioned the research. I gave him a look that clearly said, 'don't tell him about the key' I flipped a few channels, while Wes went to get food. Roger groaned as I kept channel surfing. "Just find something and stick with it Cupcake."

I just smiled and tossed him the remote. "Fine you can get your Will and Grace fix." I curled up on the other end of the sofa.
Mar. 31st, 2007 01:24 am (UTC)
I sat at the end of the bar eating so I could see the television. I sighed loudly, for Lilah and Roger to hear when he changed to Will and Grace. Honestly, I didn't like watching t.v. To me it was a waste of time and it killed brain cells in my belief. I figured reading or writing was a better past time. My father hated that I enjoyed that rather than playing rugby or some other physical sport.

"Must we watch this idiocy?"
Mar. 31st, 2007 01:50 am (UTC)
Roger looked over at him as the show went to a commercial. He glared at Wes. "Just because you're too British to watch television, does not mean you get to ruin the experience for the rest of us." He then turned back to me with a sighed. " Are all Brits drama queens, or just yours?"

I shrugged and turned back to the tv. I glanced over to see Wes looking like he wanted to murder Roger. "The baby and I are staying out of this one." I informed Roger as the show came back on.
Mar. 31st, 2007 02:45 am (UTC)
"I'm not too British...if you haven't noticed I barely even have my accent.", I retorted."It's just that British people know that good entertainment comes from Theatre and such rather than a box."
I finished my dinner and put the plate in the sink. I kissed Cecilia's cheek before taking my seat next to Lilah and glaring at Roger. Touching her stomach I smiled."It just kicked."
Mar. 31st, 2007 02:51 am (UTC)
I tried not to laugh as the boys started to fight a little. "Roger play nice" I then kissed Wes as he sat back down again. I smiled when he said he felt the baby kick. "Yeah she does that occasionally now.."
Mar. 31st, 2007 02:56 am (UTC)
"She? How do you know it's a girl. I wanted us to be surprised.", I pouted a bit."A girl...", I smiled.
Mar. 31st, 2007 03:23 am (UTC)
"Yes a she and I know you did, but I'm impatient, besides I didn't want the nursery to be all in green or yellow." Roger sighed. "Cupcake we've been over this those colors were just gender nuteral possobilities.."

"Well now they're not possobilities anymore, because we know we're having a girl." I smiled and kissed Wes.

"Yeah a darling little girl, who will probably be a miniature version of you.." He smiled at the thought of getting to spoil her like crazy.
Mar. 31st, 2007 03:25 am (UTC)
"Not that I didn't want a girl but having one Lilah is enough work.", I chuckled as I looked at Roger."Have you two thought of any names?"
Mar. 31st, 2007 03:33 am (UTC)
I playfully hit his arm when he said dealing with me was hard work. I thought about the question of names for a long moment then shrugged. "No not really.. Just so long as it's not something that will hut her in some way."
Mar. 31st, 2007 03:40 am (UTC)
"How about Anna?"
Mar. 31st, 2007 02:28 pm (UTC)
I smiled. "It's pretty, but I don't know if I want to name her after my mother.."

Roger decided to chime in on the subject. "Oh Cupcake she'd love having her granddaughter named after her."

I sighed and looked at Roger. "I'm not naming my daughter after my crazy mother Roger."
Mar. 31st, 2007 03:56 pm (UTC)
'She's not crazy, just...misunderstood.', Roger retorted.

"I like Elizabeth.", I replied puffing out my chest a bit."Classy, simple, perfect...just like my mother.", I grinned.

I thought about my mother and the fact I hadn't called to deliver the good news.
Mar. 31st, 2007 04:10 pm (UTC)
I ignored Roger and focused on Wes. "That's pretty, but what about Samantha? And we can have Elizabeth as her middle name?"

Roger looked at us and sighed.
"You two should really call your mothers and share the news. Oh ,but that also involves having to dodge the questions of marriage and where you are.."

"We'll jump off that bring later" I informed Roger calmly.
Mar. 31st, 2007 04:38 pm (UTC)
"Okay, I like it.", I answered giving her another kiss."Let's not talk about that."
Lilah and I both knew that sharing the news of being parents ours would ask too many questions that we didn't have answers for. I personally wanted to marry Lilah but not just for the baby but when she was ready. She was getting used to being pregnant and becoming more comfortable with the idea of being a mother and I didn't want to pressure her with other things.
Mar. 31st, 2007 04:43 pm (UTC)
"Good so now that we have that settled why don't we go upstairs and leave Roger to his show." I said before kissing wes back. I then got up off the couch and headed up to our bedroom.

Roger just shook his head and turned back to the tv. "This girl's going to be so spoiled.."
Mar. 31st, 2007 04:46 pm (UTC)
"You mean that idiocy in a box?", I huffed as I followed Lilah up the stairs. Once we were in our room I held Lilah, wrapping my arms around her belly."He's right, she's going to be very spoiled."
Mar. 31st, 2007 05:01 pm (UTC)
I just nodded when he mentioned the tv. I laid down with him as he said the baby was going to be spoiled. "Yeah she is, so do I get to see the nursery soon? Or are you and Roger still keeping it secret from me?" I kissed him. "Besides I thought we had a thing about not keeping secrets?"
Mar. 31st, 2007 05:03 pm (UTC)
"We do have a thing about keeping secrets.", I smirked as I took the key hidden in her pocket out."You get to see it when she's here.", I stated before kissing her again.
Mar. 31st, 2007 05:16 pm (UTC)
I sighed as he told me I'd have to wait until the baby came, before I could se the nursery. "That seems too far away.." I pouted. I looked at the key after he pulled it out of the pocket I'd put it in. "It was for your own good; you were going crazy trying to find answers, and I already explained that you are not allowed to loose it before she gets here"
Mar. 31st, 2007 05:22 pm (UTC)
"I'll just wait until she's here.", I laughed kissing her stomach."You're gonna be an English version of your mother.", I said to the baby."Between us you're going to at least visit The Academy."
Apr. 1st, 2007 12:03 am (UTC)
I looked at Wes with a raised eyebrow. "She's going to be the perfect little princess, and we'll see about her visiting the Academy.." I kissed him, then grabbed the tv remote. I turned on the tv and started flipping chanels, until I left it on a channel that was playing Gone with the Wind.
Apr. 1st, 2007 12:09 am (UTC)
It felt nice to be in bed with Lilah and I felt myself drifting off to sleep.
Apr. 1st, 2007 12:18 am (UTC)
I laid in bed watching Gone with the Wind as Wes started to fall asleep. I yawned a little as I continued to watch the movie, before falling to sleep as well.
