Callore took a step towards the barracks and stopped. She held her stomach and fell to the floor.

Jake grabbed her just in time. “What’s the matter, my love?”

Callore winkled up her face. “The cubs,” she gasped. “Get Adrian.”

Jake frowned as the rest of the group hurried to Callore’s side. “Adrian, Why Adrian?”

Callore screamed. “Because he’s the equivalent of a mid wife.”

Jake raised his eyebrows. “Of course he is,” he muttered before Adrian pushed him out of the way.

“Okay my darling open your legs wide and let me see,” Adrian ordered as he disappeared under her dress. “Yes, I can see the ears. Right sweetheart just one more push, and oh…”

“Oh, what do you mean, oh?” Jake cried.

Adrian lifted his head. “Well, I think you’re having twins…no I am wrong, its triplets. Now stand back.” Adrian got onto his knees and shuffled back a few meters. “Ready, steady, go…”

The first cub shot out of Callore like a rocket, Adrian caught them by the leg and gave it to the general. “That’s a boy.” The second baby bounced on the ground before Adrian caught it in mid-air. He passed it to Eva. “That’s a girl.” The last little one flew straight at Adrian. He caught it and handed it to Jake. “Another boy.” Adrian rose and brushed the dirt off his trousers. “That’s it. How are you feeling my dear?”

Callore gasped and tried to sit up. “ I think I’m all right.”

Jake mopped Callore’s face with a wet cloth and held her hand. “Now what?”

Callore shrugged and turned her gaze on Adrian. “How long have I got?”

Adrian  rubbed the palm of his hands down his pants. “Not sure. It could take a few days, or…oh.”

Callore tried to raise her body up. “What do you mean, oh?”

Adrian stared at her feet. “Look!”

Everyone gazed at Callore’s feet. A green slime oozed out of her pores and covered her legs. It started to move up her body. Callore lay back down on the floor and smiled. Her lips turned red and her limbs became stiff as the green slime covered her whole body and became a frozen solid block of ice.

Jake bowed his head and a tear trickled down his cheek. “Sleep well my darling.”

The general and the captain picked Callore up and walked towards her hut. Jake and the others followed behind. I miss her so much. I wonder how long her transformation will be. I need to stay strong, as I have to be mum and dad to my little cubete’s.

The procession stopped and Jake pushed the door open to the hut they would have shared. The two men placed Callore on the bed.

Adrian stood in the doorway and gazed upon the girl he always thought of as his daughter. “I need to work on the potion to turn you into a woman so that as soon as Callore transforms you two can live up to your vows,” he sniffed.

Jake nodded. “You do that.” He turned towards the general. “And we have got to implement this plan of yours. I want peace when Callore returns. I want us to start a life and not fight a war together. I want my children to grow up in the community you want to build where everyone is equal and differences don’t matter. Where we can all live as one, humans and creatures alike.”

The general nodded. “The plan is simple. We make your grandfathers sign a treaty saying they will let the ‘pires live among them and, if not except our differences, at least respect them.”

Jake’s eyes opened wide and his jaw dropped. “And how in hell are you going to do that?”

The general rubbed his hands together. “By kidnapping them and not letting them go until they sign.”

Jake shook his head. “Are you mad? We’ll have the vampires and the werewolves after us. They won’t take too kindly to us locking up their leaders.”

The general smirked, walked to the door and turned. “It’s a win win situation. Either they sign the agreement, or we have all our enemies under one roof so to speak and we can kill them off.” The general started to whistle as he strolled out of the room.

Jake took one last look at Callore and sighed. I hope I’ll be alive when you awake my sweet, otherwise it’s going to be a hard life being a single mum with three little ones hanging onto your legs for eternity.
