At the Hospital....Part 1

Michelle waits for her parents to show up while the nurses and doctors are taking care of Laura. She has called Luke about a billion times already and he is not picking up his phone. She talked to Jacob and he said Luke left to run errands. 
Michelle left strict instructions with Jacob to tell Luke to call her if he shows back up at he shop, that it was an emergency concerning Laura and the baby. Jacob agreed he would and said he would try to call Luke as well. She ends the call with Jacob then tries calling Luke again and still no luck.....Michelle ends the call then looks up.
 She sees Benjamin rounding the corner and is walking in her direction.
Michelle rushes into his arms and just falls apart.
*Benjamin* "I got your text....what is going on?"
*Michelle* "Oh my god, Benjamin....It was the most scariest thing I've seen in my life...."
*Benjamin* "What happened?
*Michelle* "She blacked out and started going into labor the EMT said something about   Pre-eclampsia?"
*Benjamin* "So, is she having the baby?"
 *Michelle* "I...I...don't know....they are in there now taking care of her. They haven't told me much."
*Benjamin* "Where's Luke?..."
*Michelle* "I don't know! I have called him like a dozen times. He is not at the shop and he will not answer his phone. I'm worried.....they had a really bad fight last night."
*Benjamin* "Sh*t! Let me try and call him maybe he'll answer for me."
*Michelle pulls back and wipes tears away* "Okay....I'm gonna talk to the nurse at the desk."
Benjamin walks to go take a seat and Michelle goes to talk to the nurse behind the desk.
*Michelle* "Can I go back to see my sister? I haven't heard anything since we got here."
*Nurse* "You'll have to wait till the doctor comes, they are still with her at the moment."
*Michelle* "So you know nothing? I need to know if she is okay...."
*Nurse* "Please just have a seat and wait for the doctor I'm sure she will have some news for you soon..."
Michelle turns and walks away not happy with the nurse who gave her no information to go on.
*Benjamin* "Let me guess....she told you to wait."
*Michelle* "I can't believe they won't tell me anything....or even let me go see her."
*Benjamin* "I know it's frustrating....but I'm here to keep you company, Darlin."
*Michelle smiles at him sweetly* "Did you call Luke?"
*Benjamin* "No answer and his voice mail is full. So I just texted his dumb ass. Told him Laura was in the hospital and he needed to get over here asap! Have you tried calling Luke's Mom?"
*Michelle* " I don't have her number....You know, I was gonna text him something like that but I wanted him to pick up the phone! So, I just texted him to call me that it was an emergency. I hope he finally responds."
*Benjamin* "I guess we wait and see. Are your folks coming?"
*Michelle* "Yes they are on their way....they should be here soon."
*Benjamin* "That's good.....When you say they had a fight...was it about Rufus?"
*Michelle* "I really shouldn't say...."
*Benjamin* "Why not?"
*Michelle* "Because I don't want you to go blabbing it around..."
*Benjamin* "Honey, who the hell am I gonna "go blabbing it" to?"
*Michelle* "Fine....but you got to promise you won't repeat it."
*Benjamin* "I promise....I swear...My lips are sealed."
Michelle is about to tell him when she sees her parents coming her direction and gets up to greet them.
Benjamin checks his phone but still no word. Luke is gonna have a lot of explaining to do about where he has been.
*Michelle gets up and rushes to her Mother* "Momma!"
*Krystal* "Sweetie....where is your sister?"
*Michelle* "They haven't let me go back there since we got here. I think they are trying to stop her from going into labor. The nurse at the desk said the doctor should be out here soon to tell us how she is."
*Krystal* "They better because I am not gonna wait out here if she is having that baby.  Luke is with her, right?"
*Michelle looks down* "No.....I don't know where he is....he won't pick up his phone...."
*Krystal* "So she is alone? I'm going back there they can't keep me away....I cannot believe he is not here with her."
While Michelle and her Mother are talking. Scott and Benjamin exchange a few words.
*Scott* "How's it going Benjamin?"
*Benjamin* "Oh, it's going good....and you?"
*Scott* "Things are quiet.....well at least they were until we were called here..."
*Benjamin* "Yeah.....I hear ya there."
Krystal is about to demand to go back and see her daughter when a very tall, slender woman comes their direction.
*Doctor* "Hello, I'm Dr. Elise.....Laura and the baby have been stabilized. She has stopped having contractions and is resting now...You are free to go back and see her."
 *Krystal* "Is she at risk of going into labor again?"
*Dr. Elise* "Yes, she is.....she needs to be in a stress free environment. If she starts to go into labor again then there is a chance we cannot stop it. Of course you realize it is way too 
early for the baby still...."

*Michelle* "Stress free? My sister is always stressing about something...."
*Dr Elise* "Yes.....she needs to be calm and stay that way if she wants to make it into her third trimester.  We are keeping her overnight for observation but once she is sent home she is gonna be on strict bed rest, most likely for the remainder of her pregnancy."
*Krystal* "Oh dear! Can we go back and see her now?"
*Dr. Elise* "Sure but only 2 at a time. We need to keep her calm and in a relaxed state."
Krystal and Scott head down the hall to go see Laura.
They find her room and peek through the door to see her laying there all alone. Scott pushes on the door handle and lets his wife enter the room first....
*Laura* "Momma!"
Krystal bends down to kiss her daughters forehead. Scott quietly closes the door and walks to stand on the other side of her bed.
*Krystal* "Hi, are you feeling?"
*Laura* "Better....Where is Luke?"
*Scott* "He's on his way...."
*Krystal* "Yes, I am sure he will be here soon. You just need to relax."
*Scott* "Your Mother is right....Just focus on you and the baby right now."
Scott leans over to kiss his little girl and Krystal takes her by the hand. 
*Scott* "My sweet baby girl, you had us all very worried..."
Laura is feeling much more relieved that they are here with her but she is still worried as to why Luke is not there yet.
*Laura* "I'm okay now, Daddy...Where is Michelle. I want to see her..."
*Scott* "She is out in the waiting room with Benjamin. You want me to go get her?"
*Laura* "Yes....Thank you Daddy..."
Scott leaves Krystal with Laura while he heads back down the hall to go and fetch Michelle. While Scott an Krystal were with Laura. Michelle and Benjamin were talking back in the waiting area.
Benjamin couldn't take the distance between them and sits Michelle on his lap.
*Benjamin* "I cannot believe Luke is not here yet.... She could be in labor right now 
and he has not idea!"
*Michelle* "I know....I am getting really worried. This is just gonna stress Laura out even more that he is not here yet."

*Benjamin* "If it were me. I wouldn't leave your side for a minute Darlin'...."
*Michelle* "Awww, think about having babies with me?"

*Benjamin* "Of course I do, Darlin'..." *he smiles* "...I think about making them too...."
*Michelle blushes* "Benjamin!.....keep your voice down."
*Benjamin laughs and pulls her in tighter* "Awww, C'mon 
 I know you think about it too...."
*Michelle smiles* "Yeah, you know I do.....I love you."
*Benjamin* "I love you too, Darlin'....more than anything."
Michelle and Benjamin have become so wrapped up with each other they have forgotten where they are. Scott walks up and they don't even notice him at first. 

*Scott* "Michelle....your sister wants to see you."
*Michelle jumps* "Daddy! You scared me..."
*Scott* " sister is asking for you."
*Michelle* "Okay....I'm going."
 Michelle gets up, leaves her dad and Benjamin behind to go and look in on her sister.
She heads down the hall, locates her room and walks inside.
*Michelle* "Hey! You look are you feeling?"
*Laura* "I'm fine now....."
*Michelle* "Sis, you scared the crap out me. I am just so glad you are okay..."
*Laura* "I am just glad you were there when I passed out."
*Krystal* "It's a good thing your sister was there. What were you two doing? Going to Lunch?"
*Michelle* "Um, yeah we were going too but...."
*Laura looks at her Mom* "Can you excuse us, Mom? I need to talk to Michelle alone..."
*Krystal* "Sure, but you two are not fooling me. I know there is something going on...And you better tell me sooner rather than later."
*Laura* "We will.....I promise."
Krystal excuses herself then exits the room to give them a moment alone.
*Laura* "Where is Luke? And don't tell me he is on his way...something is wrong
 I can feel it."
*Michelle sighs* "He won't answer his phone. Even Benjamin tried calling him, he's not answering our calls or text messages...."

*Laura starts to panic* "I knew it....Oh god! What if he is with her!"
*Michelle* "Don't think that! You need to stay calm, remember."
*Laura* "How can I not? Especially, after what happened last night....he betrayed my trust! He constantly told me not to worry and then he....he..."
*Michelle* "Laura....Sis, you need to calm down! The doctor said they might not be able to stop the contractions again..."
*Laura starts crying* "I know and I am trying! But as much as he hurt me and broke my heart last night....I am terrified here without him! I need him, Michelle..I can't do this anymore without him here! I can't!"
Laura is panicking and tears are coming down fast....
*Michelle* "I understand....he will be here. I promise....Just try and stay calm."
The nurse comes in to check on Laura. Her pulse has risen and the monitors at the nurses station were alerting them of her distressed state.
*Nurse* " Your getting stressed out again. You need to stay calm and keep your body from going into labor. 
The nurse walks around to look at the heart monitor and 
check the baby's as well. 
*Michelle* "She is right, Laura. Just try to focus on staying relaxed..."
*Nurse* "You got to try keep this baby from coming to early. It's not time yet..."

*Laura a few tears still falling* "I'm trying!...."
*Nurse* "She needs to rest. I think maybe it is best if you go for now....."
*Laura* "Just get Luke here, Michelle....I don't think I can be completely at ease till he is here."
*Michelle* "I will, just rest for now...."

Michelle leaves Laura with the nurse and heads back to the waiting room. She wants to wring Luke's neck for doing this to her sister. He is gonna hear it from her the minute she tracks him down....


An unknown place and time.......

Both of them lay there completely satisfied and relaxed.
*Rufus* "Mmmm that was amazing!!! And so very,
very naughty, too!"
*Luke with sarcasm* "And it's all your f*cking fault, Baby.....You make me want to do very bad things to you...."
*Rufus laughs* "Promise won't do those bad things with anyone else anymore..."
*Luke kisses her neck* "What are you saying? gettin' jealous, Ru? You never cared about sharing me with other women before..."
*Rufus* "I'm serious, Luke....I just want it to be us, no else. Promise me..."
*Luke* "I don't know if I can promise you that...."
*Rufus* "Why not? I thought you loved me?"
*Luke* "You known damn well, why...."
 *Rufus* "I need to tell you something."
*Luke* "Tell me what?...."
She takes her sweet time getting to the point and it grates on Luke's patience....
*Luke* "You gonna f*cking tell me or not?"
*Rufus* "Luke....I....."

To be continued....



  1. I had to breakout the popcorn for this episode..holy cow! Im glad that Lara is ok and the baby to but seeing that Luke sleeping with Rufus i was like ..."whaaa...!" The set was to die for and the attention to detail was spot on. Awesome episode like normal!

    1. Lol! I am so glad to hear you enjoyed it :) I was to anxious to wait another week but that is only one half of it. I got more in store for next week :)
      I know that what happened between Luke and Rufus is going to throw people for a loop but we just gotta wait and see.....
      I had a lot of fun building Laura's hospital room :)

  2. This comment has been removed by the author.

  3. Well, seeing how Luke and Rufus is "unknown place and time"... I'm gonna hope it's waaaay before he hooked up with Laura. Because I refuse to believe that Luke can be that much of a dick, considering how guilty he felt after even kissing Rufus.

    Thanks for the new episode Miranda, I so do look forward to Fridays :)

    1. Hi Kat :)
      All I can say is we will find out soon!
      I agree Luke was pretty upset with himself that he kissed Rufus....
      So glad you are enjoying it!

  4. Well....I gotta tell ya. You're a awesome story teller! I'm sitting here with a tear in my eyes from when Krystal walked in and Laura said "momma"! I know that feeling.
    I'm also mad as Hell at Luke! How are me and Laura supposed to get pass this fraggle naggle bull! Lol
    Also, I agree with William. Great, awesome, spectacular hospital setting! You inspire me! I love doing dioramas, but I've just got my house back in order! My living room was a wreck for months! I've got to create a doll room!

    1. Hi Veda :)
      Thank you so much!! I have so much fun sharing this with all of you...
      That moment with Laura is a bit of a tear jerker. I have come to learn that even though you can be an adult, you still have that bond with your parents no matter what age.
      It seems everyone has joined the "hate Luke club" lately lol! More will be revealed on the next episode :)
      I had a lot of fun with the dioramas and they came together quite quickly. I thought I was gonna need more time but I was itching to get this next part going....
      You need space for dios. They take up so much room. They can cause complete chaos if they don't have a designated spot. I have learned that!

  5. Well, all the scenarios and what you've currado as always, they are overworked and the effort shows. The only thing that has saddened me is to see that Lucas is just another man, I do not think I deserve that Laura is the fool. Desire that is fixed, I'm starting to hate Rufus, hahahaha

    1. Hi Sonia :)
      Thank you I thoroughly enjoyed building the hospital room. There was still a few more things I could have added but I'll get to them eventually....
      Luke is in big trouble with all of us isn't he? There is more to come on the next episode so we will see soon....

  6. Well Miranda, I'm breathless!
    perfect dramatisation and wonderful settings...what else can I say.....well, I believe that Rufus is having a "flashback"....probably I'm the only one, but I started feeling sad for Luke....he's caught between a wacko Rufus and control maniac Laura..... LOL

    1. Awww Thank you!!!
      I don't want to give anything away but I agree things are tough for Laura and Luke right now....Rufus belongs in a nut house!! lol! Laura is OCD sometimes I agree.

  7. oh may, a lot is happening here!
    I'm guessing Luke is remembering the moment Rufus told him she's pregnant. So Luke was a bad boy and Rufus was lelting him to sleep around?
    I guess I'm the only one who keeps fingers crossed for Luke and Rufus?

    1. Hi Yes Luke and Rufus had a very open relationship....
      You'll see more of them on the next Part :)

  8. I'm so jealous of your Elise!

    1. Hi Sergio....
      She's a gorgeous doll but so hard to find clothes for her to fit. she is so much bigger than Babs :)

  9. Love the hospital room. I knew Michelle was going to get put out of the room. She wasn't doing so great at keeping her calm. I just hope nothing has happened to Luke. I don't think he is laid up with Rufus, but you never know. I just hope he's not being wheeled into another hospital room.

    1. Hi Vanessa!
      Thank you I had so much fun putting it together...Michelle wasn't but Laura was hell bent on hunting down Rufus...
      As for Luke we'll see more of him in part 2 :)

  10. Hi Miranda, I'm new to your blog but I caught up on it over the weekend and I love it. Your attention to detail is phenomenal! As a student nurse, I was so taken by everything you did in the hospital room, from the room number to the IV bag, to the fetal monitor. If I let my mother, who is also a nurse and doll crazy, see this set she would flip out. Keep up the great work!

    1. Hi!
      So glad to hear you have been enjoying Luke and Laura. I tried to remember what all goes into a hospital room...I am still hoping to add a few more things, hopefully by the time she has the baby.

  11. Hello Miranda!
    I've just met Your blog but all can I say in one word is AMAZING! :)
    I've spent the all last weekend to read Your fantastic stories, watch the pictures and adore the little details that make Your world so much real!!
    Congratulations, and thanks for sharing Your creations!
    I am with Laura and Luke so I hope that he will find out his true feelings and puts an end to the matter with Ru... Fingers crossed and can't wait the next chapters!!
    Warmest regards from Hungary and :)

    1. Hi!
      Awww thank you! So glad you are enjoying it.....
      I'll be posting a new episode on Friday...we'll get to see what is going on with Luke...

  12. This is going to sound strange but I like bumps in the road. People are complicated and I love reading that in your stories. This is great story telling! :-). I can't wait to see what happens next! Love the hospital dio by the way, very nice.

    1. HI Tracy :)
      I know exactly what you mean it does sound weird to me....I agree I like it when the dolls are more life like with their personalities.....I'll have the next part posted on Friday :)

  13. Wait, I am completely confused. In the first part of this Luke was at the hospital with Laura, but in this second part he's with Rufus? Like was this before he showed up to the hospital or what?
