Here is part 4 :D

Here is part 4 :D Ryan had been off like a shot the moment he heard Poppy's agonising pains. He panicked, angry with himself for leaving her alone for a few minutes. No doubt she was in danger and it was all his fault. He pounded the pavement hard and burst through the kitchen door and saw Poppy doubled over in pain. It took him a moment to realise it was the baby and not an intruder. Ryan composed himself, he had never seen a woman give birth before but he knew what to do. Poppy was huffing and puffing in pain and Ryan knew exactly what he needed to do.

"It's ok Poppy, I have called an ambulance, you're doing brilliantly, keep up with the breathing," he assured her and Poppy nodded. Within a few minutes the police car arrived to escort them to the hospital.
Almost half a day later, Poppy found herself back at the safe house holding her new baby girl. The pregnancy had gone well and Poppy had been allowed to go home as long as she made sure she rested herself. Ryan had promised to keep an eye on her and had been with Poppy the whole time. She hadn't wanted to go into the delivery room alone and had requested for him to come too. Ryan had been shocked but was happy to give Poppy the moral support she needed.

Now her Poppy stood in front of him, looking fresh and holding baby Lily.
"She's beautiful," Ryan smiled, "Hello Lily," he cooed. Poppy smiled at Ryan and suddenly felt a pang in her heart strings. He'd held her hand during the birth, mopped her forhead and whispered encouragement. When Lily had arrived he'd smiled and told her she was perfect. He'd even held Lily in the hospital. The nurses thought he was her husband and they'd laughed and gone with it. "Thank you for being with me in the hospital, it can't have been nice for you," Poppy laughed.

"I enjoyed it," Ryan smiled, "It wasn't a chore at all." Poppy smiled at him and he smiled back.
"She has your eyes," Ryan told Poppy.

"I see a bit of Luca in her," Poppy replied, "But more of me."

Ryan nodded, "She is definately the double of you."
"How about I babysit whilst you go have a nice bath and get yourself sorted?" Ryan suggested. Poppy agreed and handed Lily over to him. She trusted him implicitly. Ryan seemed besotted with Lily already and Poppy smiled as he cleared up yesterday's food. Ryan knew he shouldn't get attached to Lily but he felt close to her and Poppy. She needed looking after, they both did and that was he was being paid to do. He felt more anger toward Luca. How could he let a girl like Poppy go and the little baby he held in his arms? He didn't understand how people could do things like that. He spent an hour or so with Lily when Poppy came down and the phone rang.

"Shall I answer?" she asked Ryan and he nodded.
"Hello?" Poppy answered but no one was there, "Hello? Hellloooooooooooo?" They hung up. Poppy was confused. "No one was there," she told Ryan, "How strange." Ryan was worried at that moment. As he tucked Lily in to bed with Poppy she wondered who could've made that call. "Night little one," he smiled, "Nothing's gonna harm you. Not while I'm around." Poppy slept soundly that night, as did Lily. She figured that Lily was as tired by the pregnancy as she was. She cuddled her daughter and spoke to her softly,

"I love you," she told Lily.
"I am so glad to finally meet you," Poppy said kissing her daughter. "Ryan likes you a lot too, you have made a good impression," Poppy told Lily, "Shame your Daddy is who he is." Ryan had woken early and decided to make Poppy and Lily breakfast. Poppy some pancakes and Lily her baby milk. He brought Lily downstairs and to the kitchen. It wasn't a chore looking after these two. He could get used to this...
