Ranma smiled as he approached the Tendo home. <Oh Akane, I'm back. I
missed you so much. These past months searching for a cure had been
wasted. I want to be a complete man for you, but now all I can hope for is
that you can still accept me as half a man. Damn Nannichaun was no better
than that instant version. It only worked for a little while.>
Ranma sighed. <Akane, please still love me. I don't want to be alone
anymore.> He walked through the gate and approached the door. With each
step he became more and more nervous. His hand shook as he opened the
door. "I'm back!" he called.
Nabiki literally jumped in hall. Her momentum carried her into wall. Ranma
was surprised by this 'greeting.'
Nabiki quickly regained composure and put on her business face. "So you
made it back already. I take it you're cured then."
Ranma sadly shook his head.
Nabiki frowned. "So why are you back? We didn't expect you for a couple
"I didn't have any leads and I wanted to see Akane."
"I see. You want to marry her?"
Ranma nodded. "Yes." He nervously looked around. "Where is everyone?
"I'm the only one home right now. I can take you to where Akane is, but I
need to make a phone call first. Wait for me at the gate."
Ranma nodded and walked to the gate.
Nabiki quickly picked the phone and dialed. "Hello, Daddy. How is
"All right Ranma, lets go." Nabiki said rubbing her ear as if she just
heard a loud sound.
"Where are we going?" Ranma followed Nabiki.
"To Akane," Nabiki replied simply.
"And where is Akane?"
"The place we are going."
Ranma scowled slightly. "What is the name of the place Akane is at that we
are also going to?"
Nabiki smiled. <Learned somethings while you were away, heh Ranma?> Nabiki
then frowned. "I think it'll be better that I don't tell you until we get
"I have my reasons. We'll be there soon enough."
Ranma tried to get Nabiki to tell him what's going on, but she wouldn't
give him a straight answer. Ranma started to fear something was wrong. Why
else would Nabiki visibly fluctuate between emotions and wouldn't answer
him? His fears grew as he learned where they were going. "W-why didn't you
tell me we were going here?"
Nabiki sighed. "Telling you sooner would've only made you scared sooner."
"I-is Akane...?" Ranma asked scared of out his wits. He was staring at a
"We're almost there. All your questions will be answer then."
Ranma was shaking as they approached the room Nabiki indicated Akane was
in. Ranma's thoughts raced, <Please be all right. Please be all right. I
should've been here. I should never have left you. I'll never forgive
myself if... Please be all right.>
Ranma opened the door.
He saw her.
He saw Akane.
She was lying on a bed.
She looked to be in pain.
A hell of a lot of pain.
She also looked like she put on some weight.
She was screaming at him.
She screamed in pain.
She screamed in pain because of a contraction.
She was giving birth.
"Damn it! Show some backbone!" Akane screamed. She knew she should've
taken the drugs.
"He's the father?" the doctor asked.
"YES!" Akane screamed. "The first time I see him since he did this to me
and he faints! Stupid BAKA! Wake up!"
Nabiki smiled, pocketing her camera. She glanced up and saw her father
dragging a Catholic priest behind him.
"Is he here?" Soun cried.
"Yep," Nabiki said, pointing at floor. She then poked her head into the
room. "Akane, still want to marry him despite not finding the cure?"
"I don't give a damn about the curse! Wake him up!"
A nurse used some smelling salt to wake Ranma.
Ranma got of the floor and stared at Akane not believing his eyes. "A-
"Don't just stand there!" Akane yelled.
Ranma slowly walked toward her. "Am I... the f-father?"
"Of course you are, Baka! Who else do you think I'd have sex with, Ryoga?"
Akane snarled, "I'd sooner make bacon out of him!"
Ranma flinched slightly.
Soun interrupted the reunion. "Why don't you continue this after you're
married?" He pushed the priest towards them.
"Do you two want to get married?" the priest asked.
They Ranma and Akane looked at each other, both wanting the other to
"I already asked them. They both want to get married," Nabiki answered for them.
"Y-you want to marry me?" Akane asked, tears in her eyes.
"Of course I do. I tried to cure my curse for you. You want to marry me?"
"If I didn't want to, I wouldn't have kept our child," Akane said before
screaming in pain.
"Better make it quick if you want to be married before the baby is born,"
the doctor said.
"Okay. Do you..." the priest began put paused pointing at Ranma.
"Saotome Ranma," Ranma answered.
"Saotome Ranma take..."
"Tendo AkaNE," Akane attempted to say.
"Tendo Akane to be your lawfully wedded wife?"
"I do," Ranma blurted out quickly.
"Do you Tendo Akane take Ranma to be your lawfully wedded husband?"
"I do," Akane said, wanting everything to be done with.
"Do you take each other through sickness and in health, for richer and for
poorer, until death do you part," the priest said with an amazing
"Yes," both answered.
"Does anyone object?" The priest quickly looked around. "You are now
husband and wife. You may kiss the bride, and then sign this." He held out
a wedding certificate.
Ranma kissed Akane, but was broken off as Akane screamed in pain again.
They then quickly signed the certificate.
Ranma held Akane's hand. She had another contraction, and there was an
audible crack as she broke his hand. Ranma didn't really notice as he
heard the doctor say, "I see the head."
A few minutes later the cries of a baby boy greeted the newly wed parents.
Ranma gently brushed some hair off her face. "I'm sorry I wasn't here for
you. I'm really sorry."
Akane lay there, smiling and panting. "It's all right, I know you did it
for me. I'm happy you made it back in time."
"So am I. I wouldn't forgive myself if I didn't."
The doctor walked over with the baby, giving him to Akane. The parents
smiled at their son.
"Do you have a name picked out?" Ranma asked.
Akane nodded. "I was thinking Tenma."
"It's a perfect name." Ranma kissed his wife.
Soun and Nabiki watched the scene, crying.
The door slammed open as Genma and Nodoka entered the room. Both gasping
for air as if they ran a marathon.
"You're a little late," Ranma said smirking.
"Ranma!" Nodoka elated, hugging her son. "You made it back."
"Yeah. Just in time to see my son born."
"Son?" Nodoka looked at Akane and little Tenma. "He's beautiful!" She
scowled at Genma. "I so much wanted to be here, but someone had a little
"That was master Happosai's doing, not mine," Genma said defensively.
Nodoka ignored him. "Anyway, are you getting married soon?"
"Um, we already did," Ranma said sheepishly.
"I'm so happy for you two." Nodoka smiled and then scowled at her husband
"All right, everyone out," the doctor ordered. "The mother and her child
need some rest."
The Tendos and the Saotomes left the room.
Ranma stayed with Akane and his son anyway. He couldn't really believe
what just happen, had happened. He just did what he usually did, he tried
to cope with it.
After some time Ranma left the room to let Akane sleep. He saw Kasumi and
Nabiki talking on cellular phones, while Soun was talking to his parents.
"How are they?" Soun asked.
"They're doing fine," Ranma answered. His thoughts were in a blender. "Is
there anywhere I can sit?"
Nabiki grinned, putting away her phone. "Of course. Right this way."
Ranma followed Nabiki, his mind replaying everything that just happened.
He entered a room and saw Ryoga, Ukyou, Shampoo, Mousse, Cologne, Kuno,
and several other friends and enemies. He smiled nervously. "It's a boy,"
was all he could think to say.
<That'll teach you to get my sister pregnant and then high tail it,>
Nabiki thought evilly. <I still can't believe Ranma made it home in time.
I thought Akane demanding someone to stay home to watch for him was insane
and stupid. Should've known he'd return at the last minute with his luck.>
Akane woke up hearing an explosion. She groaned as she heard the intercom
blare a medical emergency in the waiting room. "Stupid baka," she
muttered, before falling asleep again.
This story idea started a while back when I read MASN, thinking that Ranma
would return when Akane was in her eleventh hour of her pregnancy. When I
read Legacy it only added to it. Then yesterday I thought of the title and
the story practically scripted itself in my head. Though I played with it
to delay and obscuring the reason why they going to the hospital as long
as possible, and not even mention the hospital to boot!
The baby's name isn't going to be the same as the first born of two of my
I debated having a scene where the priest baptizes Tenma and find out the
curse is inheritable, but that's the punch line of several spamfics so I
didn't feel it'd be a good addition. I might write the scene, but it'd be
the start of the fic and not the end.
