It's after 8 PM on Wednesday night and Avery had to work late to assist on a big case at her law firm. It was all hands on deck. She did pretty good making it through the day, despite having other things on her mind. Fortunately, Craig had an early shift and was able to pick up Aviana from daycare. He fed her and put her to bed.
Craig: Hey, Babe. I'm glad you're home.
Avery: Hi, Honey. I see Parker's not home yet.
Craig: No. He said he was going out with some guys to the bar. He's watching the game there. I'm watching it here. Care to join me?
Avery (slightly paying attention): Umm...maybe. I'll be back. I have to use the bathroom.
Craig: Okay. I'll be right here.
Avery heads back out to the kitchen and grabs her handbag and the bag from the store. She sets her handbag down on the shelf outside of the bedroom, goes to the bathroom and closes the door. She needs a minute, so she sits down on the toilet with the lid down. The she opens the bag and reaches in to pull out the contents.
Avery finally takes the test. She sets the test on the sink, pulls her pants up, washes and dries her hands and waits. It shouldn't take long, but the seconds seem like hours.
Finally the answer appears and Avery picks up the test. For some reason she feels she needs to touch it to make it real.
Once she accepts there won't be any answers tonight, she throws the test away, washes her hands again and heads for the bedroom to tell Craig.
Craig: Okay. Whatever it is, I can take it. What's wrong?
Avery: Nothing. Nothing's wrong. I...I'm pregnant.
Craig looks at her and a big grin comes across his face.
Craig: Really? That's great news! We're having another baby.
Avery: I'm glad you're happy.
Craig: Of course I'm happy. Why wouldn't I be? Come here.
Craig wants Avery closer to his face.
Avery: What are the other two?
Craig: The day you said 'I do' and the day you told me we were having Aviana.
Avery: That's so sweet. I love you.
Craig: I love you too, Ave. Now get those clothes off and get in the bed so we can talk while we cuddle.
Thanks for stopping by. ~ Jaye
