Laura's First Doctor Visit: Part 1

*Note*
Okay!! So I was gonna post this next Friday but after I sat down and looked at a calendar I realized that I really need to speed it along if I want to stay on track with this....
So here we go!


Everything is a dark and foggy haze. She opens the door to their place and steps inside, sensing something is not right.....
She hears voices floating down from upstairs. Stumbling and trying to find her way in the darkness she finally finds the stairway....
She starts to panic....she tries to move but her body won't do what her mind is telling it.  Her feet stumbling over and over, struggling to get to the top of the stairs....
Then the sounds become more clear to her and suddenly she finds herself standing at the top of the stairway. She hears someone calling out his name... 

"Luke!....Luke!!..."  

but it is not her voice. She turns and walks. She stops and 
stands in the doorway of their bedroom to find........


 She screams a blood curdling wail, as if she saw a dead body lying in front of her. 

"Noooo! Nooooo! Nooooo! Get off of him! Luke! Why!?....wh..." 
but it seems like she is the only one who can hear her cries.  She steps inside the doorway of their bedroom hoping this time they will hear her. She screams at him again.
 "Luke! How could you do this to me! Luke!...Luke! Look at me!...."
It's like he is under the other woman's spell and has no idea she is there in the room with the 2 of them.  She walks around to her side of the bed and screams at him again.

"Why?! Luke?! Why?! You said you loved only me. How could you do this?!" 
But her attempts go unnoticed. He doesn't respond to her. He is only focused on the other woman.
Everything continues to be a foggy haze and she is getting sick to her stomach because she can't get neither of them to look at her. Worst of all she can't get them to stop.....
Then suddenly all that changes and she can see the other woman's face come into focus. The woman stares right at her with a wide, evil, satisfied grin and speaks. 

*Rufus replies cold and confident* "He is mine and he will never love you..Never!..."
She screams again and Rufus rocks her head back laughs with a frightfully phsycotic cackle, then turns her attention back to Luke, who is still lying beneath her..... 
She thinks to herself what is wrong with him? Something is not right.... Why won't he answer me?, He doesn't even acknowledge that I'm here.....
She speaks again. This time only to Rufus.  

 "What did you do to him?....Get off of him! You, B*tch!....leave us alone!...."

 Rufus looks up at her again. She continues to laugh and enjoy the torment and pain she is instilling in her. 

*Rufus with a haughty spiteful tone* "Don't you get it? He doesn't love you.....He never did....And he never will....I am the only one who can truly make him happy."
She screams out loud this time so loud that is startles her......
"NO!!!"
and she pops up.
She wakes to find that it was all a very bad dream.
Laura rubs her face and tries to erase the visions of Luke and Rufus from her memory.
She is sweating and shaking. She knows it's a dream but why did it feel so dark and ominous. She starts feeling like crying but she doesn't want to wake Luke, even though he is a heavy sleeper. She looks down at him there sleeping next to her.  The images of her dream still there, she can't help but let out a sob.....she tries to reign in her emotions and pull it together.
 Luke starts to stir and wake. He thought he heard her speak but wasn't sure. Then he sees her sitting up in bed, looking pale and sick again. And he becomes more alert. He's been worried about her lately.
He reaches out and grabs her arm. She is startled by his touch.
*Luke* "Babe, what's wrong? You look sick to your stomach again.....your cold and clammy. You alright?"
*Laura* "...I'm.... I'm okay.....I think.....I had the worst dream just now.  It felt so real!" *she shudders* 
 *Luke* "What was it? You want to tell me about it?" 
*Laura* "I don't know....you'll probably just think it's silly."
*Luke tries to encourage her* "No, I won't. You got me worried, Babe. You look really upset. Did it have something to do with you being pregnant?"
*Laura* "No.....no.....it was nothing like that....it was mainly about you and...and...."
Luke gestures for her to continue.
*Laura* "It's stupid...forget it.....It's just a really stupid dream."
*Luke sits up more in the bed* "You sure? I think it will make you feel better if you talk about it."
*Laura sighs a bit she knows she needs to get it off her chest* "I was dreaming I caught you having sex with Rufus Blue in our bed. The worst thing was you wouldn't acknowledge that I was there. You wouldn't look at me! You wouldn't talk to me!" *he can see the sadness and pain in her face as she talks about it* I screamed and screamed at you but you wouldn't stop...you..you just....kept..." * Her voice trails and She shudders again* "Ugh!!! It was horrible! It was like I never existed to you...."
 Luke sits up even higher in the bed and puts his arm around her and kisses her forehead.
*Luke* "Awww...Babe....you know that is never gonna happen. I have no desire to be with anyone else."
*Laura* "I told you it was a stupid dream..."
*Luke* "I think it's just stress and I know your nervous about your doctor visit. I am too."
 *Laura* "It just felt so real and I really don't like the feeling it gave me....."
*Luke starts to get up out of the bed* "Dreams can do that...Let's just get up and get ready. It'll fade away after awhile. I gotta open the shop up for Fionna before we go to the doctor...."
*Laura stops him from getting up* "What?! I thought Jacob was gonna open the shop today. Your not gonna take too long are you?"
*Luke* "Yeah, he was but something came up apparently. He will be in later to close up.  I'm sorry I forgot to tell you about it last night. I was just so tired after coming home from work."
*Laura* "You really think Fionna can handle being there on her own? She has only been there for a couple weeks now.  I still think hiring her was a bad idea. I don't like her...."
*Luke sighs* "Aww...C'mon..Babe, don't start with that again.  She is fine and can handle it. Mondays are always a bit slow anyways...I don't know why she gets to you but, if I hadn't have hired her then you'd be going to the doctor on your own. Would you prefer that?"
*Laura* "No! You know I want you there."
*Luke* "Well then, I need to get up and take care of the shop before your appointment."
*Laura* "Look, I know you've known Peter for years but I'm telling you there is something not right about Fionna. Luke....She is...weird."
*Luke sighs* "It's way too early to be arguing about this...besides it's already been done....."
A little frustrated with her persistence at such an early hour......he gets up and walks into the bathroom before she has a chance to respond.
Whoops! Looks like someone prefers to sleep in the buff!  
While he is in the bathroom it gives her a moment to think about their conversation. She has felt so strange and uneasy lately that she has had a hard time controlling her emotions. She starts to think that maybe Luke is right. She is just too hormonal and needs calm down. She has been busy though, with the holidays and working long hours at the restaurant. She never even had time realize that she was pregnant and it was never planned which makes her even more uneasy. 
She tries to shake all the negativity that stemmed from her horrible dream but it is not that simple. That dream was so frightening for her. Deep down she knows Luke would never cheat on her or leave her for Rufus. But why does she all of the sudden feel so uneasy about their relationship? 
As the sun starts to stream in from the window Luke stands in the doorway of the bathroom and looks at her. He can see she is in deep thought with herself. He hates seeing her upset. If only he could make it all go away. S, he does something that he thinks will make her very, very happy.
*Luke* "Babe, I promise I'll be back within a couple hours.  I'll take you to your doctor's appointment. After that we have the rest of the day together to do whatever you want.  I'll even take you shopping......"
*Laura get up out the bed* "Your gonna go shopping with me? *she smiles* Oh! You know exactly how to make me feel better don't you?"
*Luke laughs* "I knew you'd like that....."
*Laura* "Oh...You know I jump at any chance I get to go shopping with you. You must really be worried about me if your offering to take me shopping."
They walk and meet each other half way.
*Luke puts his arms around her* "I will do whatever it takes to make you happy....*he kisses her, then looks right into her gorgeous green eyes* "I love you, Babe.  I don't want you stressing out over silly little things like hiring Fionna. Let me deal with it. I just want you to focus on yourself and staying healthy. Okay?" 
*Laura runs her fingers thought his hair, trying to tame the mess* "Okay....I promise. I'll try to not stress out so much.  So, you really gonna take me shopping?...Where are we gonna go?"
*Luke almost reluctant he offered, cause he really hates shopping* "Yeeeeaah.... and we can go anywhere you want, Babe. I'll even let you drag me into that fancy baby store if you want."
*Laura's face beams bright* "Really?!...."
*Luke smiles at her* "Yeah, really....."
Laura showers him with kisses. She is so excited now and looking forward to spending the rest of the day with him. Luke is just happy seeing her happy. He doesn't want to leave her but he has got to go open up shop at Vintage Vinyl. They finally pull away from each other, Luke goes and gets in the shower and Laura goes downstairs to find something to eat she is starving already.
*Laura speaking as he is coming down the stairs* "I didn't feel like cooking but I made you some coffee."
*Luke* "I'm sorry, Babe.....I'll eat when I get back. I gotta pick up Fionna on the way to the shop..."
*Laura* "I thought they had a car?"
 *Luke grabs his jacket and puts it on* "Yeah, but Peter has to use it for work. It's just easier this way...I'll be back quicker as opposed to waiting for her to show up."
*Laura a little sad he has to go already* "Okay...."
Luke walks over to the coffee table, grabs his phone and keys. Then quickly checks his emails before heading out. Laura gets up and wraps up a pasty bread leftover from the restaurant for him to eat so he won't starve. 
*Laura* "Here at least take this with you..."
*Luke takes the food* "Just make sure you eat something...Don't worry so much about me."
*Laura* "I know...and don't you worry. I already ate before you came downstairs...I had 2 bananas and a huge bowl of cereal. I was starving..."

 *Luke smiles, leans down and kisses her goodbye* "Good....I'll be back in a couple hours."
*Laura* "I'll be waiting....Love you!"
Luke turns and leaves. Laura plops down on the couch. She grabs her phone and contemplates whether or not to call her sister and tell her about her dream. Luke tried to convince her it was just stress causing it but she still can't stop thinking about it. She doesn't know why but for some reason she just can't shake it
....and the feeling it gave her.
*Laura talking out loud to herself* "You have got to let it go!.... it's just a crazy dream!"
So, she decides to not call her sister but go upstairs shower and get ready for her doctors appointment...


to be concluded in Part 2...

    1. Thanks William :)
      I was excited to put this idea into action...Making them as real as I can is a big deal for me, so I am always glad that that comes across in my episodes.
      I am also in the process of customizing my dolls in that way. And of course you know who gets to go first ;) I plan on adding him some more tats, body hair, and making him anatomically correct.... ^_^

    2. Realism is the way to go! I cant waite to see what you cook up for these guys and girls.I think Ben is a good candidate for a body make over ;)

    3. Thanks William,
      Yeah, I agree Benjamin is a great specimen for getting a makeover. Now I am wishing I had kept my second one of him. So I could have one with a 5 o'clock shadow and the other one with out. Oh, well.....
      ^_^

  3. looks like Luke is having a real test for his patience recently! XD I wouldn't be surprised if one beautiful day he would run away from Laura ! uhh, he's so handsome! I absolutely love the tattoos you gave him, had to open all photos with him naked/in wife beater and just stared, haha

    1. Boy is she ever, hormones can be a real bitch and she is definitely testing his love and patience. But he did get her in this mess to begin with....
      Lol! I cracked up laughing. I do the same thing, so you not the only one.
      I almost put the uncensored photo of Luke getting up from the bed but then decided that it might be a bit much.

      If you can't get enough of Luke then you can check out my flickr http://www.flickr.com/photos/29866841@N08/ I post more pics and short stories there too :)

  4. Scary, scary. Reminded me of some of my own scary dreams. Maybe Laura is feeling a little nervous that the baby is coming and she's wondering how that will affect the relationship she and Luke have. What do you mean you have to pick up Fiona! No car, no job. He should have hired someone a lot more independent. Why doesn't Peter get up and take her to work. The boss should not be picking up the employee.

    1. I have had some vivid dreams like that as well....
      I agree Laura is under a lot of pressure. Knowing he up and left when things got bad between his ex makes her very uncomfortable.
      You hit the nail on the head with that. Men can be so dumb and clueless sometimes. I think he just really wants to help a friend out right now and can't see past that.

  5. Poor Laura. I remember being super hormonal when I was pregnant. Something you just can't help. On the other hand, your senses are heightened so while I believe Luke is a faithful guy, doesn't mean someone want try him. Laura's dream could be warning her more about this Fiona chick. Drams can be tricky and there's sort of a six degree of separation thing between Fiona, Rufus and Luke. Guys are often clueless to a conniving woman with a plan so it's no surprise a ride to Luke is innocent enough.

    Great episode! Looking forward to part II. :-)

    1. I meant "won't try him" and "Dreams" can be tricky. Gotta love technology.

    2. Hey Tracy,
      Yeah, those first 3 months are rough....I like your insight on this one. Laura's dream was definitely telling her something. Love how you picked up on the Fionna, Rufus, and Luke thing. Guys can be so damn clueless sometimes...
