Reeds 3 - Round 23
Kate especially looked forward to little grandbabies underfoot!
"I'll get it," Walker called out as he walked to the door. These past few nights had been hard since Dad died. He hoped it was something good.
Walker rolled over and faced the wall. "I can't think of anything that would make me feel better," he said sullenly. "Good night."
"I love you," Rachel said as she snuggled against his back.
Barely glancing up, Walker mumbled a response.
"Well, do you think a baby would help?" she asked.
Finally, she got his attention. Looking up, he saw Rachel's belly rounded in pregnancy. "You're pregnant? This is amazing!" he said in awe.
"Yeah? Good thing we're going to college soon! If they're anything like the folks, this place is going to be overrun with babies soon!"
Vanessa laughed. "Yeah! Who wants diaper duty?! Not me!"
And amazingly, she found happiness again...
"I wouldn't want you to waste away without love if something were to happen to me," she argued.
God, Walker wanted to think about that even less than he wanted to talk about his mom!
But, he supposed she had a point.
"You're pregnant again?" Walker asked, pleased. Sweeping her into his arms, he hugged her tight. "I can't wait!"
