Donnie & Adalyn’s Conversation – An Aside from Uh Oh Part I

The day after the last time I invited Adalyn to spend the night was the worst day of my life. She was still home when I got home from work

“Hey there, sweet thang! You’re looking mighty fine this evening. Did you change your hair or something?”

Ava is ALWAYS in everyone’s business, and she just looked at Adalyn and laughed and walked away.

“What’s she laughing at,” I asked.

“She just knows something that you don’t.”

“And what’s that?”

“I’m pregnant!”

“PREGNANT?! Oh no!! That is the worst news ever!!”

“Really? I think it’s rather exciting!”

“NO! How could you do this to me?”

“Do this to YOU? You did this to ME!”

“You know what I mean! Why did this have to happen to me?”

“Donnie! I don’t understand! This is a very good thing! I mean…I’ve always wanted to have a child, and in about a week or so, I’m going to be an old lady! You have given me the best possible gift! You have fulfilled my dreams!”

“(sigh) I know, Ada, I know. I just need some time to process this. That’s all. So how long have you known? When did this happen?”

“Well, I don’t know exactly, but I think it happened the first time we were together.”

“The FIRST time? Sheesh!”

“I had been feeling ill ever since then.”

“I thought I had the flu or maybe some bug that was going around. After I never got better, I decided to see my doctor, and that’s all she wrote.”

“You know I’m not mad at you, right?”

“I know.”

“You know how I feel about children.”

“But I also know how you feel about your family and its legacy! Deep down, you know you want this.”

“Maybe. I know one thing! It better be a boy ‘cuz I am NEVER getting you pregnant again!”
