Jane: Good morning! I wanted to wait for you in the evening, but I fell asleep.
Charles: I didn't want to wake you up. I had to finish some paperworks before going to bed.
Jane: Sit down, please, I bring some fresh tea.
Charles: What happened?
Jane: The pot was too hot...
Charles: Are you all right? ... Janey? Aren't you nervous, are you?
Charles: What did you say?...
Charles: Jane!! You didn't mention this! Are you okay?
Jane: Yes, yes, you don't have to worry. I just... We...
Jane: It is a baby... We will have a baby, dear!
became teary... Then he held his sweetheart, and lifted her into the air. He just hugged her so much and whispered her name.
Jane: Are you happy?
Charles: Happier then ever... I can't believe...
Jane: In the end of April.
Charles: What did the doctor said? Are you well?
Jane: Everything is fine.
Charles: When will you know it's a boy or a girl?
Jane (laughing): Don't run so fast! He or she is just a little sweet dumpling yet.
Charles: Did you see?
Jane: Yes! Maybe next time we can get a photo.
Charles: A photo? Really? I would like to accompany you to the doctor next time.
Emma: Mommy, what are you talking about?
Charles: We have some news for you, Princess.
Jane: Some great news.
Emma: What is it?
Jane: You will have a little brother or sister!
Emma: YAAAAY!! I knew it! There is a baby in your belly?
Charles (laughing): Yes, a baby. He or she will born next Spring. But Jane, you can't hold her, let me.
Charles: I don't care. Stop lifting up heavy princesses and other stuffs. Emma, please, sit down.
Emma: I am soooo hungry!
Charles: Good. You have to take care of Mommy, all right? Will you help me?
Emma: Yes, Chazzie!
Jane: We can't decide it, Emma. It will be a surprise!
Emma: Then what kind of toys should we buy for the baby?
Jane: The baby don't need any yet, sweetie. But he or she needs some food, I think... Let's eat. Bon appétit!
Charles just watched his beloved and smiled. He was thinking about the changes of their life. He felt pride but couldn't imagine what the baby will bring to him. He decided to talk with John after breakfast - his brother-in-law has three children after all.
Charles: Did you speak with your mother and brother?
Jane: Not yet. I would like to invite Mom for dinner, if you don't mind.
Charles: Of course. I will make something.
Jane: And your parents? They are too far. Would you like to wait till Christmas to tell them in person?
Charles: Oh, my parents... I don't know. Maybe I call them after breakfast. Yesterday the wedding, now the baby...
Jane: What do you think, will they be happy?
Charles: Are you kidding?? My mom will going to jump out of her skin for joy.
Jane (smiling): It is okay then.
Finally they began to eat and drink the cold tea...
To be continued... :)
