McMillan - Round 14
She tried not to let it bother her because she knew Chester loved her. But, sometimes she still caught Chester talking to Jacqueline about Lawrence and how he was worried their boy was too wrapped up in pleasure to really succeed in anything.
Hopefully when she had a new child for Chester to think about, all that would change.
Later, he'd gone to dust off Jacqueline's urn and wondered aloud, "I hope Lawrence knows what he's doing Jackie!"
Meredith walked in as he was talking and he saw her roll her eyes and then storm out of the room. Sighing, he went after her. She'd gotten a little tempermental during the last stage of her pregnancy. It seemed like everything he did set her off. He found her crying on the bed.
Sitting next to her, he rubbed her back. "I'm sorry that it upsets you," he said. "It's more habit than anything else. Right after I lost her, I would talk to her every day about how our boy was growing and asking for advice."
Meredith wiped the tears from her eyes. "But you're supposed to talk to me about those things now!"
Chester sighed. "I know. And I do! I guess it's hard to explain."
"I don't want to take her place... but I guess I don't want her to take my place either!" Suddenly, Meredith's eyes widened. "Oh my goodness!"
