Little Mermaid - Melodys Birth
Eric paced in the hallway. It had been 9 months since Ariel got pregnant, and now she was having the baby. She'd went into labor that morning, and at almost sunset, she was still in labor. His pacing got faster as he worried more.
"It'll be ok, mon. You'll see. Carlotta will come out of dat room and tell you yer baby was born." Sebastien said from near Eric's boots, safely away from the eager father-to-be.
"I know. I just can't help worrying," Eric stopped and looked at the door. "She's all I have. Her and the baby both."
Grimsby, Eric's closest friend appeared around the corner in time to hear Eric's last statement. "Oh, Eric, I'm sure she'll be fine. She's a strong young woman." Grimsby said in an attempt to comfort Eric.
The sun had now set. Darkness was descending rapidly in the halls as the servants went about they're duty of lighting candles. Eric clenched a fist and put it against the thick wooden door.
