Shianne was pregnant. She knew it right away. She would have to tell Aiden, she wouldn't be able to hide it much longer.
How could she have been so careless? Who gets pregnant during a Zombie apocalypse?
Shianne mustered up her courage and pulled Aaiden aside.
"I don't know how to say this...so I'll just come out with it," Shianne paused and waited until he nodded for her to continue, "I'm pregnant."
Aaiden stood there, his mouth gaping slightly, silent.
He finally unfroze, "this is unexpected." He said at last.
Shianne was flooded by emotion and worry.
"Well I guess we're having a baby!" He smiled.
Shianne felt relief drench her body.
As the baby grew inside of Shianne, their garden started to flourish.
Aaiden offered to trade Shianne for guard duty, but she would have none of it.
They finally had fresh fruit and vegetables to supplement their diet.
The two never left the property but apart from that, they tried to make their lives as 'normal' as they possibly could.
Other than napping more often, there was no real change in Shianne.
That was until she felt the pains of labor for the first time.
It was excruciating.
Aaiden did not know what to do... There was no doctor, there was no hospital to call.
After a minor freak-out on both ends...
...Aaiden finally calmed himself down and he was able to think logically.
Together they brought baby Rayna into the world.
