Derrick’s Past & Amelie’s Pregnancy

“I told Gladys that you’re pregnant,” Derrick told Amelie. They had been so thrilled when they found out in early October that Amelie was expecting their first child.

“I bet she was very pleased.”

“Yes, she was. She’s excited about being an aunt.”

“I wonder if she’s going to tell Edward.”

“It’s possible that she will.”

“And I wonder if he’s going to tell Cate.”

“Maybe he will.”

“It was funny that the first time you and I decided to eat out, we bumped into her.”

“Yes, it was.”

“Did you notice how Edward looked when I mentioned that we had bumped into Cate?”

“Yes, I did. He looked uncomfortable and that’s why Gladys changed the subject.”

“I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that he was uncomfortable. After all, Cate is his sister and he knows about your past with her.”

“Yes, but my affair with Cate is in the past. My present and future are with you and our baby.”

“Do you think she will ever get over you?”

“I hope she does.”

“I’m not jealous of her anymore.”

“Good because you have no reason to be.”

“So, what do you think we’re going to have? A boy or a girl?”

“I hope that it’s a girl so that I can spoil her.”

Amelie smiled. “I hope it’s a girl too.”

“Are you sure you feel up to going out tonight?”

“Yes. Your parents will be very disappointed if we don’t go.”

“You’re right. We’ll go but the minute you feel tired and want to leave, let me know.”

“I’ll be fine. Don’t worry.” She kissed him on the top of his head.

“All right. We’ll leave shortly. Right now, I just want to sit here with you for a while longer.”

“Sure, Baby.”
