Carters (2) - Round 12
Carlye wiped a tear from her eye and leaned over to tell Jansen, "They remind me of us thirty years ago!"
Jansen smiled and hugged her close to his side. "Then Perry's a lucky, lucky man."
Carlye grinned back at him and wiped at another stray tear.
Shannon waved his hand. "Oh you know, she's 8 months along and wanted to stay at home. She wanted me to tell you congrats, though!"
Perry smiled. "Already expecting a little one. You stud, you!"
Shannon elbowed Perry. "Better watch it! You could be next!"
Perry gazed at Melanie as she ate a piece of cake. "I certainly hope so! I can see us having a little boy and a little girl." His gaze strayed to Brittany and Mason. He nudged Shannon back, "Do you think those two are ever going to realize they're half in love & stop bickering all the time?"
Shannon sighed. "Probably never! They're both stubborn as hell!"
"No, you make me the happiest woman in the world, Mr. Carter!" Melanie said as she snuggled against his chest.
"So I was talking to Shannon earlier and I think we settled on two kids... a boy and a girl.."
Melanie laughed. "Oh, you settled on it with Shannon, did you. Glad you asked my opinion!"
Perry squeezed, "So what are your thoughts on the subject?"
Melanie laughed again. "I want something different..." she paused, "A girl and a boy! And I'd like to get started right away," she giggled as she tugged him to their room.
Adam just squeezed her tighter. "You never know what will happen. Maybe I'll get into Sim State Uni, too!"
Jody smiled. "Oh that would be wonderful! We could study together and take all the same classes!"
Melanie smiled and rubbed her belly. "I'm good. Just a twinge here and there," she said.
Perry came over and leaned over to talk to her belly, "Hello in there baby! We have the nursery all set up for you! Ready whenever you are!"
Melanie giggled and wrapped her arms around Perry's neck. "I love you!"
Melanie smiled and held his hand. "He's perfect, isn't he?"
Jody reached across the table and squeezed Carlye's hand. "Stop or you'll make me cry! I'm not going to be gone that long!"
"I know! I know! We'll miss you though!" Carlye told her.
The family trailed behind Jody as she loaded her things in the car and watched as everyone waved. "Bye!" she called out as she waved back.
