“Look at him, boo-boo, doesn’t he make your heart explode into a million teeny itty bitty rainbow coloured pieces?!” Brian whined emphatically. “We need a baby in our lives!”
“Bri, you can’t even keep a house plant alive for a day. How would you go with a baby?” Uncle Anthony deadpanned.
“What about that aloe vera plant?” Brian asked in a sassy voice.
“That was a fake one.”
“Minor details, boo-boo, minor details. I still need a baby. Look at this precious little nugnug.” Brian coo’d in a baby voice.
“Nugnug?” You asked with a chuckle.
“Yeah bambi, yo man Hawks loves chicken, right? And he calls you chicken, so dis here, is yo little nugget, and because I’m bri-bri, he’s gonna be my widdle nugnug.” Brian said lifting baby Hiyoko closer to his face to give him a kiss on his nose.
“What is your baby’s name?” Uncle Anthony asked, curiously.
“Hiyoko.” You said proudly, “Hiyoko Takami.”
“Lawd that’s a be-UTIFUL name!” He said as he shivered with gay delight. “Where did you get that name from, honey?”
“Umm well…. when I saw the white light a person spoke to me and they told me his name was Hiyoko.” You said with a bit of a sweat dropped look on your face.
Brian sucked a scream in, making a high pitched noise as his mouth hung open.
“GUUUURRRLLL, YOU MET BEYONCÉ?!” He said in awestruck, flamboyant wonder. “Hiyoko was named by our savior Beyoncé. Hallelujah, amen. I KNEW he was special.” He said knowingly.
Just then Hiyoko opened his eyes and looked at Brian.
“Oh… he’s awake.” You said softly as you looked at Hiyoko.
Brian did the sucked in scream again and then started babbling words of adoration and wonder.
“Gurl his EYES!” He said in delight. “He is going to ruin boys and girls alike with ONE LOOK!”
“Oh oh! Pass me the blanket we need to give him devine blessings.” Brian added as he flitted over and lay baby Hiyoko down before unwrapping the hospital blanket to transfer him to the rainbow blanket.
As he opened the blanket, Hiyoko’s large wings fell open and Brian gasped before jumping back.
“What’s wrong?” You asked quickly as you sat up and looked at Hiyoko.
“He’s an angel, I KNEW IT! I KNEW IT!” Brian said as he waved his hands around. “We are in the presence of a child sent from Beyoncé!”
“Wh-What?” You chuckled, confused.
“All the signs are there.” Brian said as he popped a hip out and put his hand on his waist. “You heard a voice come from a white light, you were told his name, and NOW he has perfectly white wings!”
You smiled, opening your mouth to say something.
“You can’t tell me he isn’t sent from heaven!” Brian said as he flicked his hand out. “Your honour this is a SOLID case!”
“Well I think he’s from heaven.” You said bashfully.
“I’m right there with you, bae.” Brian said again as he clicked his fingers and pouted.
He stepped back over to baby Hiyoko and gently wrapped him in the rainbow blanket then pulled out a small vial from his pocket.
“No… is that?… BRIAN NO!” Uncle Anthony said sharply as he lunged towards his boyfriend. “HAWKS! HELP ME!” He shouted frantically as Brian struggled to get free.
“Wait?! What’s going on?!” You asked in a panic as uncle Anthony wrestled with his man and Hawks made his way around to that side of the bed, on guard but not fully involved yet.
“Brian is going to try and bless baby Hiyoko with holy glitter!” Uncle Anthony said with horror. “It goes EVERYWHERE! I told him not to do it again, he did it once before to another baby and it was a nightmare.”
“Unhand me! This is TREASON!” Brian wailed pitifully.
Hawks stretched his wings out menacingly but had the most perplexed look on his face as he warred with what he should be doing right then.
“Give it to me!” Uncle Anthony demanded sharply.
“No!! I must perform the BLESSING!” Brian hollered, wrestling the glitter vial from uncle Anthony’s clutches.
“HAWKS, MAKE AN ARREST!” Uncle Anthony shouted at your hero husband.
“I….I don’t even know what I’m arresting for!” Hawks replied as he reached out to hold Brian down.
“Honey bun, you know I think you’re fine as hell but if you don’t remove your hand from me THIS INSTANT, I WILL CUT A BITCH!” Brian seethed at a very apprehensive looking Hawks.
“Bri… Bri!” You called softly, “please, could we perform the blessing once we get Hiyoko home? The uh, hospital isn’t a good setting umm because… because of umm….” you looked around wildly, trying to find a reason for the setting being inappropriate. “Umm… THE FENG SHUI ISN’T GOOD HERE AND IT WILL RUIN THE BLESSING!”
Everyone stopped and looked at you.
Then Brian gasped.
“Oh my BEYONCÉ, you’re right! Forgive me, lawd that was close! Only positive energy for this beautiful baby boy.” He said as he quickly put the vial away and uncle Anthony and Hawks let him go.
Anthony mouthed you a ‘thank you’ behind Brian’s back and you smiled at him.
“WITH THE POWER BESTOWED UPON ME BY BEYONCÉ’S CLOTHING BRAND, IVY PARK, I REBUKE THEE!” Brian said loudly as flicked his fingers around and over baby Hiyoko as if to shoo flies away.
Your baby looked at him curiously.
“Hiyoko looks very confused.” Hawks said with a chuckle.
“He better get used to it.” Brian said sassily, “I’m his god-daddy, I’m here to guide him in the truth.”
“Please don’t say god-daddy.” Uncle Anthony sighed.
“Boo-boo, if I want to be a god-daddy, I’m going to BE a damn god-daddy. Don’t you rain on my parade with yo jealousy.” Brian said as he pointed his nose in the air.
“Did you know what you were getting into when you started dating this power pack?” Hawks asked uncle Anthony with a laugh.
“Yeah… I did.” He replied with a little chuckle, “and there is never a dull moment.”
“Mmhmm.” Brain replied sassily over his shoulder as he scooped little Hiyoko up and walked to the door.
“Ok boo-boo, I’m ready to go now.” He said airily.
“No. BRIAN. That is NOT your baby!” Uncle Anthony groaned as he stalked over to Brian to take Hiyoko from his arms.
You and Hawks were chuckling away to yourselves as you watched uncle Anthony try and control his boyfriend.
After gently prying Hiyoko from Brian’s hands uncle Anthony finally got a turn to hold him and he welled up with tears as he gently rocked Hiyoko back to sleep.
“Y/N, he is amazing.” He said in the softest voice you had ever heard, gently bending his head to kiss Hiyoko on the forehead.
“Ugh, my ovaries.” Brian wailed in a lovestruck voice at seeing his boyfriend cradle a baby and show it some love.
“Y…You don’t have ovaries…?” Hawks said in a perplexed voice.
“Well I don’t anymore because they just exploded.” Brian replied as he clutched his hands to his heart.
That first night in the hospital you were in physical pain and every time you closed your eyes you remembered snippets of the birth and surgery and you struggled to get comfy.
“You ok, chicken?” Hawks asked softly when he heard you groan from the reclining chair they had set up for him in the room.
“It….It hurts.” You said softly in a sad voice and he got up and walked over to the bed, climbing in beside you.
“I’ll call the nurse then I’ll hold you while you sleep.” He said as he kissed your forehead then pressed the nurses button.
She entered soon enough and Hawks asked her for your pain medication then after you had taken it he snuggled you to sleep. That is, until, Hiyoko woke up at 1:15am for a feed.
