Gen 5- Chapter 10: Pineapple

{alt}

“We’re gonna have a baby!”

{alt}

“Wah you guys!!!”

“OMB!”

“Well how do you like that!”

Shock! I was in total shock! Could it be? Already. Me a daddy? At first I couldn’t get anything to escape my lips. Sure in my head I was going “WOW! Really! Thats amazing!” But on the out side it was just me standing there with my mouth wide open.

{alt}

Thankfully Symphony broke up my silence with an excited squeal.

“Wow that means I am gonna be an Auntie! That is so cool!”

{alt}

Symphony may have been almost as excited as Honey was. Immediately she started talking to her tummy and giggling uncontrollably. She was as giddy as school girl…wait she is a…Oh never mind, you get what I mean.

“Hello! Little baby! I’m your Auntie. Can’t wait to meet you.”

{alt}

Symphony’s cooing over Honey’s belly gave me just enough time to wrap my head around all the new information I was trying to process, once my head was clear, I hurriedly made my way over to her and wrapped my arms around her waste.

“Oh Sweetheart this is amazing! You’re gonna be a Mommy!”

“And you’re gonna be a Daddy.”

Daddy… This time I smiled at the thought of it. Yes, yes I was.

{alt}

Mom was on the phone almost immediately, getting the good word out and planning a shower. She tried to explain the importance of the shower, but it sounded like a bunch a girl stuff and didn’t really make that much sense to me. Honey was awfully excited about it though, so I quickly fell in love with the idea.

{alt}

Since Butterscotch had recently moved out and into a little place with Lime. (I know I was just as shocked!) Mom let us set up his old room into the nursery. Honey’s nesting phase was in full swing and she spent hours on end, preparing and re-preparing the little ones room.

“Everything has to be just right.”

{alt}

“It will be.”

“Oh Pineapple.”

You know how they say pregnant women have this glow about them? Well its true!

{alt}

I thought she looked beautiful on our wedding day, well amazingly she had even managed to surpass that.

{alt}

Soon the shower was upon us and we had visitors and family all around. People I had not seen in years all coming out to see Honey’s baby bump. Most of who Honey had never even met before. That didn’t stop anyone from coming around to feel or talk to the baby though. You would have thought she had known them all forever.

{alt}

Turned out that Honey and I were not the only ones expecting a new arrival. Auntie Persimmon and Uncle Dew were expecting their second child as well. I was begning to see what my mom was talking about. That baby shower was quite exciting! So much happiness and it spread quickly.

{alt}
{alt}

Everyone was in the best of moods. Tigra and Lime were even getting along, which was quite amazing. It seemed they had put their differences behind them, at least for the time being. I know Butterscotch and Mika were thankful for that.

{alt}

And if you can believe it, Sunglow and his fiance Punchette even made it out! She was on break from her latest tour. (Pretty famous singer. I know Symphony almost fainted when she realized who she was.) Two visits in less than a year, it was almost a record!

{alt}

Sunny did have a slight ulterior motive for coming out though. He still had not been able to have that talk with Mom that he so desperately needed.

“Hey Mom? Remember when I said I needed someone to talk to?”

“Yes?”

“Uh, how about now?”

“Of course dear. Lets go inside.”

{alt}

“Mom. I have done some bad things in my life. You know that.”

“Mhmm.”

“Well there is one that you don’t know about.”

“Oh?”

“While I was away, I kinda met this girl and well I sorta accidentally got her pregnant.”

“Sunny!?”

“I know. I really messed up. Now I don’t know what do.”

{alt}

“I tried to tell him what he should do, but I think this is one for Mommy if you know what I mean.”

{alt}

“I see. Well are you helping to support this child?”

“No. I want to! But…”

“Dear if you feel you have wronged this girl, the only thing you can do is try rectify the situation. You were adult enough to conceive this baby, you need to be adult enough to help take care of it too.”

“But how?”

“Go to her and first off apologize for what you feel you did wrong. It may not fix the problem, but at least she will know. Second you sure as Berry better start helping support that baby one way or another.”

“I suppose you’re right, thanks Mom.”

“Sunny you crack me up! Is this not almost exactly what I said you should do.”

“Maybe…”

“Sometimes dear they just have to hear from their mothers mouth.”

{alt}

Poor Mom. She had always been so kind with Sunny. Even though he treated her so awful when he was younger. I know she was thankful that none of the rest of us ever would have dreamed of talking to her that way. I know I never would have. No the rest of us were angels in comparison. Mika had been studying non stop for his finals. I swear those last few months of his senior year all he did was study.

{alt}

Koda on the other hand was just the opposite. He never studied, but always ended up with almost the same grades. A fact that irked Mika to no end.

“How can he sit and play chess all day long and still get amazing grades!! Its just not fair!”

“Guess I’m just a genius.”

*=_= *

{alt}

Before I knew it, it was time. Extremely early on a Saturday, Honey went into labor.

“Ahhh the baby’s coming!”

{alt}

So…I kinda lost my cool, and started to spaz out. I was screaming and panicking something shocking, but amazingly somehow had the time to tweez from my phone that the baby was coming! Honestly I don’t even remember doing it.

{alt}

I did finally manage to get her to the hospital, but in my hysteria I practically left her standing out side as I ran in. Thats when it dawned on me, nothing was going to be happening with out her, so I quickly ran back outside to help.

{alt}
Later that afternoon, I proudly escorted my beautiful wife and our lovely daughter Olivine Bloom back home. My Life was officially perfect.

————————————————

Sunglow Makes Amends~

{alt}

As I got closer to the house, I felt like I was moving in slow motion. What the heck was I supposed to say to her. “Hey sorry for knocking you up and bailing?” Ya I’m sure that would just smooth things over real well. Gah I never was any good at that sharing and caring junk. It was like torture. Still nothing in my life had ever made me feel remorse until that. That pinnacle turning point in my life that made me actually grow a conscious.

{alt}

As expected she was not very happy to see me.

“What do you want?”

{alt}

“Strawberry I came her to…” Ughhh I just couldn’t say it.

“To what? Insult me and call me nasty names again. No thanks I think you have done enough of that already.”

“No. I came here to apologize to you. For the way I have treated you and for …well pretty much being a righteous berry-hole.”

{alt}

uh oh, I knew that face all too well. That was the I’m gonna kill you if you don’t get off my porch look.

“Sunny. I don’t really care if you’re sorry. Saying you were nasty to me is almost a joke. You were down right cruel, and there is no way I am gonna let you come in here and apologize, thinking you can make it all magically go away.”

{alt}

It was in that moment, that I realized just how much I had hurt her. It wasn’t the fact I was nasty that made me feel so guilty, it was the fact that I broken her heart and left her stranded pregnant with my child. Oh man I was a Berry Hole! Suddenly I was overtaken with an emotion I had yet to feel for many years. Suddenly I felt as if I could cry. What the berry was happening to me!

“Strawberry Dulce there is nothing I can do to take back what I did to you, but I want you to know, that I want to do what I can now to make it right. Please just give me a chance to do that. Please?”

{alt}

Moments later she headed back in the house and door shut with a *slam* Great I thought to myself, but just as I was about to slink my way back home, the door opened again, and Strawberry emerged with a beautiful little girl in her arms.

“Well do you want to meet her?”

“Yes.”

{alt}

Strawberry handed her over and she instantly snuggled right up to me.

“Her name is Cloudberry. She looks just like you.”

“She’s beautiful.”

Now its a well known fact that I really don’t like children, but the moment she looked into my eyes, I fell in love. She was the most beautiful baby in the world. Again waves of guilt and remorse washed over me.

{alt}

This time though, I was unable to hold back the tears. If someone would have told me that one day I would be standing on a porch holding a baby and crying, I would have laughed until my sides ached, but sure as Berry, there I was.

{alt}

“I’m sorry Sunny, but you need to leave now, and no I don’t think I want you around our daughter. You come around here acting like a new man, all understanding and sensitive, well I just don’t believe it. I’m sure you of all people can understand where my skepticism comes from.”

“But…”

“You don’t have to worry about child support either. You are off the hook, free and clear, just like you wanted to be. Now if you excuse me, I have dinner to make. Goodbye Sunny.”

“Goodbye Strawberry. Goodbye *Slam* Cloudberry…”

{alt}

I actually felt my heart hurt, and all because I was stupid. It was my fault things turned out the way they did. I made promise to myself right then and there to strive to be better person. Be a good husband to Punchy and who knows maybe we would have a child of our own one day. One day at time though. It was not going to be easy. Especially for me…

  1. Number one, you absolutely nailed Strawberry. I was sitting here going “that sounds just like her!” Perfect =D Yeah, she was being kind of a bytche to Sunny, but, uh, he earned it.

    Number two, awesome chapter overall =D Symphony is just beautiful, and I’m sure she’ll only get more so. Can’t wait to see toddler Olivine!

  2. AWWWWWW poor Sunny although he has made some big mistakes he should still get a second chance…. i hope he gets to see Cloudberry again in the future… Strawberry was a toatl douche i hope she will forgive Sunny………Well any ways LOVE the chapter Berry as always

  3. I love Olivine, and I’m so happy that Sunny tried to make amends with Strawberry! :S That was so sad, seeing him standing there in front of Strawberry’s house like that, but Cloudberry really is gorgeous. Sunny reminds me a LOT of my cousin; like, this could just have easily been written about him.

  4. I love your new avatar xD!
    I love the new chapter, and I love the baby! And Sunny actually cried!
    O_O
    I never thought he’d be able to do that, great chapter Berry!

  5. What cute babies ๐Ÿ˜€ !! It’s amazing how Honey, Pineapple and Olivine (I guess you go that from Olive ๐Ÿ™‚ ) are now a cute little family. Same can’t be said for Sunny though, unfortunately… I actually really felt sorry for him, but it was his fault.

  6. Awww Berry that is fantastic. I actually feel sorry for Sunny which I never thought I would after everything he did. And another little girl for the Chiffons! Olivine Bloom – Love her name and she has her mom’s colours!!

  7. How I love this chapter, let me tell you the ways ๐Ÿ˜€

    I adore little Olivine Bloom already ๐Ÿ™‚ What a gorgeous name; how do you come up with them? I love that she has a little piece of both Olive and Apricot in her. I’ve no doubt she’ll grow up to be a cutie pie ๐Ÿ˜› Oh, and I can’t tell from the picture–does she have green or yellow skin?

    Papple’s ‘labor face’…definitely my favorite so far ๐Ÿ˜›

    Aw, poor Sunny ๐Ÿ˜ฆ But I’m really glad he finally showed some human emotions. And both Punchette and Strawberry look amazing–and Cloudberry is beautiful! Love her hair!

    Symphony is gorgeous…as if she could be anything but, with her genetics ๐Ÿ˜›

    Well, anyway, I am eagerly anticipating the next chapter! Awesome job!

  8. Loved the chapter! Poor Strawberry…poor Sunny too, he was trying to make things right at least. I think I feel worse for Cloudberry though, since she isn’t going to know her father. But Pineapple and Mint are going to have a baby! ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Amazing chapter as always! Wow – I didn’t know Sunglow was a father. His daughter is really cute, and I hope that Strawberry over time will, if not forgive him, then at least let him be there for Cloudberry in the future.

    I looove the name Olivine Bloom, and I can’t wait to see what she looks like as a toddler! Maybe she will even *gasp* get the yellow hair…

    By the way, I loved the part “Guess I’m just a genius.” *=_=*

    x’D x’D x’D!!!

  10. OMB! I think Olivine will be just gorgeous! It`s a girl! I really can`t decide if Sunny should`ve gotten another chance. He did some awful things to her, and it came back to bite him in the butt! Symph is beautiful as always!

  11. Another amazing chapter! ๐Ÿ˜€ Olivine…AW! โค Can't wait to see her all grown up!
    And Symphony is gorgeous. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    Nice to see Sunny changing, maybe Strawberry will warm up to him sometime in the future?

  12. Poor poor Sunny… Cloudberry is beautiful.. It would be so nice if Strawberry could give him another chance , but for what he did I wouldn’t..

    Wow Symphony is a teenager already!

    Ooh and Honey and Pineapples little Olivine Bloom is just adorable
    I love this chapter soo much Berry! ^^

  13. Never thought I’d say this, but poor Sunny! At least he’s trying to make amends. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Olivine is adorable! โค Papple is going to be such a great dad! ๐Ÿ˜€

  14. Love Olivine’s name and she looks so adorable!!

    I was shocked to find out Sunny was a father but given his past antics, yes I don’t know why it came as such a shock. His little girl is a cutie though and its a same he can’t spend more time with her.

    I’d love to see his and Punchette’s offspring, his mistakes can only make him a better man afterall ๐Ÿ˜‰

  15. Olivine is a perfect name and she is adorable. I love Punchy, she is beautiful!!! Hopefully things will get better for Sunny now that he is trying to mend his ways.

  16. Great chapter! Can’t wait to see Olivine grow up! Love that she’s partially named after each grandmother ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Also liked the little addition of Sunny and Strawberry! What a pretty little girl ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. OMB! Best rainbowcy EVER! I have finally read all of the chapters of all the generations.

    I am so happy for Pineapple and Honey. I knew they were meant to be together! Finally, a Bitters that is nice.
    Olivine is adorable!

    I hope everything works out for Strawberry and Sunny. Cloudberry is very cute!

  18. I am so impressed with how you are able to keep up with Sunny’s other “lives’ and incorporate them into this chapter. Also, congratulations to Pineapple and Honey on the new baby.

  19. I can’t believe I didn’t find this the other day, and I can’t believe it took this long for me to post a comment on how great this was! I love how you make cameos from other Berry Sweet Stories, especially when it was Strawberry herself! ^_^

    And Symphony! She’s grown sooo beautifully =D I can’t wait to see who she falls in love with ^_^

  20. Wow, Berry! You never cease to amaze us with your legacy. Cloudberry is so cute! And Papple is just so hot. Honey is beautiful, too. Great job!
