Mom's on the delivery room. I hope she's safe.
Today is November eighteen. She's giving birth to my fourth sibling. Well, we still don't know the gender because they wanted the birth to be a surprise. Confusing, right?
"Lucy, Mom's gonna be okay, right?" Lucifer asked. I held his hand and hugged him. "Yeah, she'll be okay. We just have to wait for her to come out there." I said.
Well, my twin doesn't call me ate. I have two twins, meaning, we are triplets.
Here comes another sibling. I hope it's a girl!
I didn't know how Mom managed to take care of us. Mom and Dad never hired a nanny. They're taking care of us even though they're busy.
I love my parents so much.
Dad came out from the delivery room. There's sweat all over his face, but he's still smiling. "Dad, how's Mom?" Lucas said.
He gave us a wide smile. "She's okay,"
"Dad, the gender of the baby?" I asked.
We screamed like there's no tomorrow. The Doctor who just came out, just looked at us with a smile on his face too.
My two twin brothers hugged me. "Really, Dad? What's her name? Can we give her the name we want?"
Dad just nodded. We entered the room where Mom was transferred. There's a paper on the table.
"So, her name will be Lianna." I said.
"No, her name should be Ingrid." Lucas said.
"No way, Ingrid doesn't sound cute on her. She should be Lily." Lucifer said.
"I said Lianna!"
"Shut up, Lucy. Mom will be awake."
"How? Mom lost her consciousness when she was giving birth to our sister. Duh." Lucas said.
I rolled my eyes. "Whatever, my suggestion still stands. Her name will be Ingrid." Lucas said.
"No! Her name will be Lianna!"
"Hey, hey! You two, stop fighting. Why not just combine her name?" Yeah, Lucifer was right. Just combine her name and there'll be no problem.
Lily Lianna Ingrid. Sounds so creepy for me. Luckily, I didn't wrote it yet.
Lianna Lily Ingrid? Still creepy.
Lianna Ingrid Lily? More creepy!
Lianna Ingrid? Perfect! Just remove the Lily, it doesn't match her name.
"Her name will be Lianna Ingrid." I said as I wrote her name on the paper. "Where's the name Lily?" Lucifer asked.
"Look, twin, Lily doesn't match Lianna Ingrid. Besides, it will be hard for her to write her name on a piece of paper, because her name's too long. Lianna Ingrid Lily? Sounds creepy, twin." I said. He just nodded at me.
I looked at Mom who's still sleeping. Well, she lost her consciousness when she gave birth to Lianna. Lucas and Lucifer sat on the chair near her bed and held her hand.
I walked outside the room and saw Dad seating there outside the room.
"Dad, where's Lianna?" I said.
"I named her Lianna, Dad. She should have the same name that starts with the letter L like us." Dad just nodded.
He stood up and walked to the Nursery Room. Oh, too many babies!
Dad stopped in front of a baby girl. She's sleeping. "Dad, she's so cute!" I whispered, enough to be heard by my Dad.
"Yeah, she really is." Dad touched Lianna's nose. I touched her hand.
She's so cute, I want to bite her!
Dad and I walked outside. "How's your Mom, is she awake already?" I shook my head.
We went inside the room. Lucifer and Lucas were talking to Mom.
"Hon," Mom said while looking at Dad. "where's Lianna?"
Ah, Mom knew already. I glared at Lucas. Among the three of us, he's the spoiler one!
Dad was about to speak when we heard someone knock. The nurse entered... with Lianna.
She slowly placed Lianna in my mother's arms. Mom cried. Tears of joy.
"She's beautiful," Mom said and kissed her on the forehead.
"Congrats, honey." Dad said. "We made it." Dad hugged mom and Lianna. We joined Dad, we're doing a group hug now.
Mom will be discharged after three days.
Dad accompanied us home, just to get some clothes and we bought some foods before we went there again.
"Mommy!" Lucas and Lucifer said. They ran towards Mom and hugged her tight. I hugged Dad tight.
Well, I'm close to the both of them. It's just that I'm much more sweet with my dad. Ya know, daddy's girl.
"Hon," Dad said. "what do you feel right now?"
I looked at Mom, she smiled at me and looked at Dad again. "I feel happy, honey. Seeing our children, it makes my heart flutter." Lucas and Lucifer walked beside me. Dad walked towards Mom.
"Close your eyes, kids." Dad said. I think they'll kiss each other. This will be fun, I'll just watch them. I covered my eyes with my hand, but I can still see them. I put a space on my finger, so I can see what they are doing. They're kissing. Gross!
"Dad, can we open our eyes now?" Lucifer asked. "Open your eyes now," Dad said.
We opened our eyes. They're both smiling from ear to ear. Ha! They kissed, I saw them. I saw how Mom clung her arms on Dad's neck.
Meaning, mom wanted to deepen their kiss but they remembered that we're here.
So, yeah. "Here, mom." Lucifer said. He gave mom the grapes we bought.
I opened the yogurt and drank it. I gave Lucifer one.
"Why don't I have one, twin sister?" Lucas asked. "Because I don't want to give you, Lucas."
He laughed at me and stood up. He get his own yogurt drink.
Ah, it feels so good. "Hey, sis." I looked at Lucifer. He's holding a strawberry.
I was about to get it when we heard someone knocking. Dad opened the door, doctor came in.
"Yes, Doctor?" Dad said.
"After checking your baby, Mr. Mendoza, I'm sad that this thing happened to your daughter at an early age." I'm getting confused.
"What do you mean, Doc?" Mom said.
"What I mean is... Lianna is sick."
Silence. I felt like my world stopped. The Doctor was just kidding us, right?
"Y-you're just kidding, right, doctor?" I said. He shook his head and looked at the floor. I can see sadness in his face.
"Sadly, she have a life limit. She'll die at the age of eighteen."
"Doctor, why?" I started to cry. My twin brothers touched my back.
"I'm sorry, Lucy. I repeated the test many times, but nothing changed. It's still the same. I'm sorry." Doctor said. "I'll leave now."
I hugged Dad. Mom was crying. "Dad, why Lianna?"
"I don't know, Lucy. It's God's challenge, let's just trust Him, Lucy."
Lianna — "Daughter of the Sun" and is the diminutive form of Eliana which means, "Jehovah is God." The meaning is "to wrap around or bind". The name comes from the "lianna vine" that grows somewhere in the South American jungles. (Lucy's)
Ingrid — a Scandinavian, German and Dutch feminine given name. It continues the Old Norse name Ingiríðr, which was a short form of Ingfríðr, composed of the theonym Ing and the element fríðr "beloved; beautiful" common in Germanic feminine given names. (Lucas')
Lily — a feminine given name directly derived from lily, the flower. The name is derived from the flower, whose meaning is "pure", "passion" and "rebirth." Lily can be short for Lillian, Lilika, Liliana or Lilith. It might be from the Greek word "louloudi" which means flower. (Lucifer's)
Lucy — English and French feminine given name derived from the Latin masculine given name Lucius with the meaning as of light (born at dawn or daylight, maybe also shiny, or of light complexion)
Lucifer — The Latin word "lucifer" means "morning star" or as an adjective, "light-bringing." But today the name is a synonym for the devil. In Christian tradition, Lucifer was used as the proper name of the devil before his fall from grace. In popular culture, Lucifer is synonymous with the devil or Satan.
