Eugene paced back and forth in the empty waiting area, the bleak-looking hallway echoing with his footsteps. Not too far away he could hear the agonizing cries of his wife coming from behind the door, hearing her begging for it all to just end.
Eugene balled up his fists, feeling guilt for having to put his loving wife through so much pain. However, he knew that everything would result in a beautiful thing.
His wife’s crying halts and a doctor comes out of the room, a bright smile on his face.
“Come welcome your newborn son into the world, Eugene.”
