The older women could do nothing but stare for several seconds, doing a fairly accurate impression of a fish — mouth opening and closing over and over again. Tara couldn’t help but raise an eyebrow, amused by the situation, now that the danger of her wife being kicked out of the room had passed. Sharp pain in her stomach sent the blonde gasping again, which seemed to knock the sense back into her nurse.
"O-Oh," the other woman choked out, still glancing suspiciously between the vampire and her pregnant mate in confusion. This was without a doubt unlike anything she had ever seen in all of her years of working in the mystical Sunnydale, and call her crazy, but she wasn’t quite sure how to respond. "That won’t be necessary," she finally continued, quickly backing out the door. "The doctor will be in to examine you shortly. He can give any further instructions from there. Just…press the nurse button if you need anything."
And with that, the older woman was gone, leaving Tara in giggles as the contractions calmed for the moment. Her hand reached out to grab her ever worried vampire’s, locking their fingers together. “Guess we’re m-more of a rarity than we assumed,” she grinned, giving her wife’s hand a small squeeze.
"One of a kind, yeah," she smiled, gracing Tara with a loving expression.
Tara’s doctor swept in, offering Willow a mere nod before the cursory examination began. It was then that the vampire blanked out.
Completely aware, not at all detached…there was still an odd floaty feeling that she was experiencing. ‘Is this really, finally happening?’ She thought to herself.
She was virtually useless in this situation, and the sudden helplessness made the vampire feel wrong, somehow. Still, she did all she could. A smile and a caress, and embrace or suddenly using her body for support, and nodding vaguely to the doctor’s questions and orders. The little vampire wondered, vaguely, if this is what Xander felt like in class when they were kids.
All she could do was offer comfort and support for her wife.That was all she ever needed to do, really.
