Sam felt like she weighed a ton as she bent down trying to lace up her sneakers and failing to do so, fell back on the bed.
"Hey Sam" she heard Gideon say as he kissed her forehead. "Do you want to tell me why you're laying down with only one shoe on?" he asked.
"What?" she said trying to lift herself up. "What time is it?"
"6pm"
"Shit! I was trying to tie my sneakers and just couldn't manage it, so I guess I fell asleep" she said looking at his beautiful face. If 4 years ago someone had told her she would be engaged to a man AND having his baby, she would have told them to stay on their medication. "It's so hard to get up, get showered, get dressed and pretty much anything else these days. I feel like a tugboat"
"Well, you certainly don't look like a tugboat. You look like a beautiful woman who is absolutely glowing"
"You have to say that" she said sighing.
"No I don't. You look amazing. Where's Lilith?" he said looking around.
"Beth took her shopping. She wanted to pick out her Christmas gifts and Beth offered to drive her.
"She does know that she's a fairy, able to transport herself anywhere at any time?"
"She said it feels like cheating" Sam replied.
"Seriously? I think she likes being chauffeured around" he said.
"So, are you just going to sit there or are you going to help me up?" she said holding out her hand. Gideon quickly scooped her up in his arms and sat her lightly down with a laugh.

Beth held Lilith's hand as they crossed the street.
"So what are we getting Gideon?"
"He likes Brandy, but I can't buy that stuff"
"I'll take care of that. What about Sam?"
"I don't know. She doesn't seem to need all that much"
"Well, I happen to know that Sam is all kinds of crazy about the film The Crow and she had all the comics, but they got lost in her move and she was pretty upset about it"
"Why would anyone want to read a comic about a crow? That sounds silly"
"It's not really about a crow its about a musician who's murdered and a crow is his link to land of the living as he tries to find the people who killed him".
"So he's a vigilante?"
"Yes, but he only kills very very bad people" Beth explained.
"Why was he killed?"
"Because he had a girlfriend who was making trouble for them so they just killed them both".
"Mortals are stupid!" she said crossing her arms.
"Sometimes they definitely are!" Beth laughed.

"Well, Josef are you ready for grandbaby number two?" Carl asked with a grin.
"Hopefully it's a boy this time" Josef said.
"So you actually have a preference?"
"Of course I do. All men want a son or a grandson to carry on their name"
"But you're an angel. It's not like you're going to die or anything"
"True but still, boys are easy to raise. Girls keep you hopping".
"Has anyone tried to talk Sam into making the choice? I mean having a vampire baby when you're human can be deadly"
"We all keep trying, but she's firm on delivering this baby as a mortal".
"Can't Brian do anything? If she's dies this will be hard on Gideon. Losing two women he loved"
"We're all on standby for any emergencies" Josef said. But he also thought that Sam really needed to rethink her decision on the whole thing.
"Now that we're talking about it, shouldn't she have delivered by now? She's coming up on 9 months now, has it ever taken this long?" Carl asked. Josef looked up at Carl in shock. Every other vampire birth was 2-3 months! Is it possible that Sam was having a human baby? A human baby born of an angel/vampire hybrid?
"So I take by the look on your face this is new territory?"
"Yeah it's very new, but it has to mean something" Josef said finally.

"Look at how big you're getting!" Beth squealed in delight when she saw Sam.
"Don't remind me" Sam said sitting down and vowing to never get up again. "Gideon is in heaven at having a boy, he said being around females all the time is wearing him down" she laughed.
"Well enjoy having a normal pregnancy. Vampire babies want out almost as soon as they're conceived". Beth said with a smile.
"You think I'm having a human baby?" she asked in surprise.
"Of course you are. Vampire babies are born in 3 month's time, and you look like your going for the whole 9 months!"
Beth said seeing the disappointed look on her friend's face. "Did you want a vampire baby?"
"Well.....yes and no, I mean it was expected. I don't want Gideon to be upset if he isn't a vampire".
"I don't think Gideon will be upset by it, in fact I think he'll be relieved....what if he's full blown angel?"
"I never thought of that!" she said wondering if that was even possible. Sam was still getting used to "angels living amongst us" thing and quite frankly it scared her to death. What if her baby was born an angel? Would he have to go away? To heaven?
"Don't worry about it, because you can drive yourself crazy thinking about what all of this means. Trust me, I know. When I found out about Mick, I was filled with doubt. What if I wasn't good enough to be with him? What if he had to go be with the others in heaven? But then I realized that Mick and I were meant to be together. God never makes mistakes and you and Gideon were a match made in heaven literally!" she laughed.

And Beth was right. She would go crazy trying to think of everything that could go one way or another, or she could just enjoy this experience right now.
"So how did the shopping go?"
"Lilith is so adamant in what she wants that she can't see how some other item is just as good or better than what she had listed, but I was able to get her to see my side, finally!" she laughed.
"I just hope she's happy with the baby. I mean...I've heard some things said about fairies being very selfish creatures and I don't want her to feel like she doesn't matter just because her dad had a baby with another woman" she said.
"I don't think she will. When her mother was taken back, Lilith handled it in a very grown up way and she knew that God had chosen you to be with her dad. In a lot of ways Lilith is nothing like Darrian, at least the ways that matter most" Beth said.

Sam had to admit she felt a lot better about things since she had spoken with Beth, but secretly she was still very hurt that her baby would be a plain ol' nothing special about it normal baby! It wasn't fair! Why did she get stuck with a boring baby? Gideon stole up behind making Sam jump in surprise.
"Jeez!!! Gideon, you need to wear a bell around your neck! Don't creep up on me like that!" she yelled placing a hand over her heart.
"Oh Sam! I'm sorry. I didn't mean to scare you. What's wrong? What are you upset about?" He asked kissing her forehead.
"I'm having a normal boring baby is what's wrong" she said puling out of his arms and sitting down at the table.
"A baby normal or not is something to be happy about. I for one can't wait to meet the little guy" he said walking over and placing his hand on her belly.
"I know.....it's just I know you wanted a boy vampire baby and I feel like a failure" she said tearing up.
"I never said I wanted a vamp child, but whatever God wants this baby to be...well...his will be done. I will love him no matter how he's made as I love the mother. Never feel like you're failure because you're not. Lilith adores you! You're going to be great mother". He said but even he was curious as to what was going on. Maybe they had gotten so used to vampire babies being born that they just expected it to happen that way. Whatever the reason, he would be happy no matter what. Sam had laid her head on his chest and fallen asleep. She had been sleeping a lot these days.....maybe he would give Julian a call just in case.

Julian knocked on Gabriel's door lightly and he opened right away.
"What seems to be the problem?" he asked in his soft voice.
"Sam, well....she's upset that the baby will be mortal, but do we know if it is?"
"Well, Sam seems to be going for a full term pregnancy so on the surface I would say she's correct, but..." he said as if thinking of something new. "Have you given any thought that the child may be born fully angelic?" he said. Gideon thought about what that could mean but felt he was missing something. He stared at Julian with questioning eyes.
"It's in one of the scrolls. You know that angels were created by God?" Gideon nodded. "What if angels could reproduce themselves?" Gideon stared at him in shock. Was something like that even possible?
"The scrolls read that there will come in the end times, when a mortal woman will give birth to an angel who shall bring angels as many as the stars from the sky"
"For what purpose?"
"To fight evil and bring heaven to earth" Julian explained.

Julian after leaving Gideon he went to see Josef. This was something he definitely needed to know. He made it to Kostan Industries and asked to speak with Josef right away. Security personally escorted him to Josef's office and he saw that Mick, Gabriel and Brian were already there.
"Give it to us straight Julian" Josef said.
"According to the scrolls, it tells of an end times scenario of a mortal woman giving birth to an angel who will bring many angels to earth" he said.
"You're talking about angels birthing other angels!" Mick said. "Sam" he whispered.
"Yes, however we do not know if this true prophecy. It is for the moment speculation" he said.
"I naturally thought Bridgett was a one off. Not to be repeated"
"But think Josef, if you were always able to do this then the massive angel numbers may have already happened" Julian said.
"Jesus Josef!! Think about how many angel babies could be out there looking just like you" Mick said.
"It sounds like the worst horror movie ever!" Brian said thinking about the implications.
"Surely the Father would have told us" Josef said.
'Not necessarily" Gabriel said. "Something of this magnitude would be on a need to know basis and something tells me only he is meant to know this"
"That tiny woman is going to birth "the Angel" Mick said in disbelief.
"We should prepare". Brian said.

"What will he be called?" Lilith asked Sam.
"Your father and I have decided on Silas"
"That's very nice of you" Lilith said. "To honor my mother in this way"
"Thank you for understanding it was meant to be a tribute." Sam said with a smile.
"She's very happy with the name. Silas means Forrest or woods she said"
"You talk to her!?" Sam asked in shock.
"Of course! She really likes you" Lilith said giving Sam a hug. "She told me to tell you to take care of dad
and love him with all your soul".
"Tell her I will" Sam said as the tears fell from her eyes.

Sam woke up and once again didn't know how she got into bed, but seeing Gideon sleeping peacefully next her she knew. Her stomach felt strange. The baby was moving around an awful lot as she placed her hands on her tummy and gently began to rub. "You need to let mommy get some sleep" she whispered as she tried to lay back down.
Suddenly Lilith was at her side.
"You need to both wake up. It is time!" she said loudly so they would get up before this baby decided to come on its own.
"What are you talking about sweetpea?" Gideon said as he felt the wetness in the bed.
"Shit! Her water just broke!!" Gideon said grabbing his pants and throwing on a shirt that was sitting on a nearby chair. Sam turned as she heard the commotion.
"What's wrong? What's going on?" she asked quickly.
"Your water just broke" Gideon said picking up the phone and calling Julian, who arrived in mere seconds.
"So what do we have going on here?" he asked mildly.
"My water broke" Sam said "But I don't really feel a thing so maybe this is something else" she said nervously. Julian laid her back down on the bed and began to examine her.
"Well Samantha, it does appear that you're in labor but you aren't dilated so just relax and continue to breathe" he said pulling out his stethoscope and listening to her heartbeat then checking her pulse. "Is there any discomfort?" he asked.
"No. Just a very some tightness that happens every every 15 minutes" Sam replied.
Julian nodded kind of nervous to be delivering an angel.

Gideon began making calls to let everyone know that the time was now. Josef and Bridgett were the first to arrive followed by Mick and Beth.
Beth ran to Sam's side and gave her a big hug.
"I'm not freaking out, but should I be freaking out? I mean everyone freaks out on TV right? Did you freak out?" Sam said in a hurry realizing that her baby was definitely being born at some time this evening.
"Of course you should and no one's going to think anything about it. You're bringing life into the world! This is a huge deal! How are you feeling?"
"Surprisingly good. It starts to feel like getting your blood pressure taken. Really tight then gone"
"I think I hate you Sam!" Beth laughed remembering her own birth which was excruciating!

"Are you ready to be grandparents again?" Gideon asked Josef and Bridgett.
"Oh yes please!! Give me at least 4 more!" Bridgett squealed in delight. Josef and Gideon rolled their eyes at that declaration. Soon Carl and Angela made their way in.
"Lisa said she would be here as soon as she can. She's doing some undercover work in Chinatown" Carl said. Gabriel and Zoe were next.
"How's everything going?" Gabriel asked.
"She's doing fine. Gideon said she's going to deliver soon" Josef said noticing that Gideon had gone.
"He went back into the bedroom. Beth's going to assist Julian with the delivery" Mick said.

In 90 minutes Julien stepped out of the bedroom.
"I am very sorry but there will be no delivery today"
"What happened?" Josef asked anxiously.
"Oh nothing like that. Her contractions simply stopped and that by no way means something is wrong. First births are generally the longest and some have lasted days" Julian said. "But I feel that it will be very soon, in a day or two" he said gathering his things. Gideon came out of bedroom.
"Sorry guys. I really thought this was it." he said sadly

"I'm sorry guys! This was all my fault. I knew her water broke and really thought it was time" Lilith said sadly.
"No worries Sweetpea, we all would have done the exact same thing" Gideon said pulling her into a hug. "You're going to be an amazing big sister" he said.

After everyone had said their goodbyes Sam was craving spicy chicken wings, so Gideon took off to find the ones she wanted but by the time he made it back, Sam was sound sleep.
"I guess these are for me then!" Lilith said snatching the container from his hand and sitting down on the sofa to continue watching the Squid Game which she was obsessed with.
"Can I have one of those?" Gideon said sitting down next to her. She held the container in front of him and he took one and began to eat it. Suddenly he began to cough.
"They're kind of spicy" Lilith said with a shrug.
"A little spicy? Those are hotter than the sun!!" he said grabbing her glass of water and chugging it all down. "I can't believe Sam enjoys those!"
"That's mild compared to what she usually eats! Don't ever touch her container of mixed nuts, they contain both Carolina Reaper peppers and Ghost peppers!" she laughed.

The days flew by and it was Christmas Eve and Sam still hadn't given birth and everyone was becoming worried, but as they all met at Josef's to exchange presents, it finally began to happen.
"We have to get her to a hospital" Gideon said in a hurry.
"There's no time for that" Sam said "He's coming soon!" she said as Mick picked her up and took her to a small spare bedroom of Josef's penthouse. Julian was called and Gideon, Beth and Julian went into the bedroom as everyone waited nervously as the clock chimed at the midnight hour.

In 40 minutes Julian came out wiping his hands with a stunned look on his face.
"What is it Julian? What's wrong?" Bridgett asked in fear.
"I...I have never seen a child so beautiful. A light truly shines from him" he said simply staring off. Gideon came out with the little guy wrapped in a blanket.
"Everyone, I'd like you to meet Silas David Kostan" he said with a bright smile. Everyone walked over and agreed with Julian. They were looking at divinity. Silas didn't cry or fidget. He simply looked at his father with love shining in his eyes, then casually the beautiful wings suddenly appeared and Gideon in his surprise almost dropped his son as the tiny baby floated in front of them and they all kneeled. Sam came out of the bedroom to get a glass of water and saw what was going on. Silas flew towards her as she held out her arms. Tears poured down her face she stared at her beautiful baby.
"Not a boring baby by any stretch" Gideon said to her as he put his arm around her. "Thank you so much for this wonderful Christmas gift" he said kissing her. Lilith approached her father and peaked at the baby boy.
"He's not as hideous as I thought he'd be" she said with a smile bending down to kiss his cheek. Then Silas reached up and appeared to smack Lilith in the face.
"Let the games begin" Josef said shaking his head feeling glad he wouldn't be there for all the sibling fights.
"You guys do know what time it is right?" Beth said looking at her watch. "Merry Christmas!!!!" she yelled.
Sam's eyes flew opened when she realized.
"I delivered on Christmas? Wow! Just like Jesus!" she squealed. No one wanted to tell her that Jesus wasn't really born on December 25th.......except for Brian, who in true "brainiac" fashion cleared his throat.
"Actually, Jesus of Nazareth was not born on Christmas" he said simply. Sam's first response was going to be how do you know, then she remembered who she was talking to.
"You just ruined my Christmas Brian" she said with a smile as she turned when she heard a pop. Josef had opened champagne and began pouring flutes for everyone.
"I love everyone in this room and it is my hope for us to have many more moments like this in the future!" Josef toasted as he raised his glass.
"Merry Christmas!" everyone cheered.
"This is going to be a wonderful year" Gideon said putting his one arm around Sam who was feeding Silas and the other over Lilith's shoulders.
"You know I'm going to pay him back for that slap?" Lilith said with a grin.
"Yes, I do. And God help us all" he laughed.
