My dreams were consumed by nothing but diapers, toys, baby cribs, and morning sickness. Ever since Newbie and I agreed about having kids once we're married, my dreams were filled with everything baby. I can already see it now Newbie and I carrying our little baby home from the hospital, and Newbie smiling down at the little girl in his arms and...
"Dawn." My dream vanished in an instant as I heard Newbie whisper my name. I slowly open my eyes to see my fiance standing over me with a grin as bright as the sun.
I Lazily lift myself from my bed and stand beside Newbie. Yawning once, and rubbing my sleep filled eyes, I said, "Is the meeting today? I had completely forgotten."
Newbie chuckles and gently strokes my cheeks. "Yes, now get ready. I'll wait for you downstairs."
"Ha-ha. Alright." I smile and walk over to my dresser to get ready and Newbie left my room.
"REALLY?! Oh Newbie this house will be perfect to start a family in."
I wrap my arms tightly around Newbie and the woman smiles at the happy couple before her. "You can move in at anytime."
I once again found myself on the computer looking for possible a venue for the wedding, I've gone through and checked out tons of them but haven't found the right one, the one that will make the wedding perfect. I got on the computer hoping to check a few more out before my brothers arrived for the sorta engagement party. Not everyone could make it around the same time for the party, so a while ago Newbie and I decided that we would see both of our families at different times; that way we would have included everyone in the celebration of our engagement.
My head shoots up from the computer to Newbie. I quickly turn it off before running out of the room and to the front door, leaving Newbie in the kitchen alone.
Dean looked really happy to see me after so long. We haven't seen each other since Sabrina and Doug's wedding a year ago. We have only talked on the phone since he lived in Sunset Valley.
Everyone was here and ready to start the mini party for mine and Newbie's engagement; I couldn't be more happier to have my brothers here to celebrate it with.
"So I went to the jeweler a few days ago and found the perfect ring. It's two carats and I had 'I love you' engraved inside the band."
"Dean you sure you wanna spent that much money on an engagement ring, what if Karen says no?"
I turned my head quickly and glared at Doug. "DOUG! Don't say that. We wanna support Dean and congratulate him, not give him doubts about proposing."
Doug shrugged and Blake chuckled at him. I looked at Dean and said, "I know you two will be very happy together, Dean."
Dean smiled. "Thank you, Dawn. I planned on a romantic dinner for two at the Bistro back in Sunset Valley, then we'll go for a walk on the beach and I plan on proposing at the same place we first met a few years ago."
"Awe, that's so sweet."
"So you were gonna leave me in a room full of girls while you talk with your brothers? That's not how it works sweety."
"Awe. I'm sorry honey. You wanna hang with the guys, and I'll go hang with the girls? Will that be better?"
"Well I better go. What kind of a hostess will I be to my guests if I just leave them sitting in the family room."
I unwrap Newbie's arms from my waist and give him one last kiss before walking back to the girls.
"Oh Karen wanted to give Sabrina something she had in the car. They'll be right back."
"And you didn't go with?"
She narrowed her eyes. "Well it was for Sabrina's baby."
She looked upset or unhappy or something when she mentioned Sabrina's baby. In fact she wasn't at all part of the conversation when we all were talking about babies earlier. It made me assume that the word baby upsets her and I was curious to why. "Does baby things upset you?"
She shook her head as if she was gonna say no, but then changed her mind. She then leaned forward and softly whispered. "I'm pregnant and I haven't told Blake yet."
My eyes widen and I nearly jumped up to go run and congratulate Blake, but I stopped myself before I did. The fact that Blake doesn't know about the pregnancy prevented me from getting up and ruining Valentina's chance to tell her husband the news. But when I looked at Valentina she didn't seem at all thrilled about the whole thing. I had a feeling she was worried about how Blake will react to the news.
"What?" Valentina's sentence was cut short as Blake's voice suddenly spoke from across the room.
"Oh my gosh, Blake!" All she could do was look in horror at Blake's shocked expression and wait for some kind of response.
"Y-y-yes," she stuttered.
What came next came as a complete surprise to Valentina. Blake smiled.
"This is great news, why didn't you tell me sooner?"
I busted into laughter at Valentina's expression. She looked hopelessly lost and confused and some what shocked at what just happened a few seconds ago. She would have never guessed that this would be the reaction she would get from her husband hearing that he's gonna be a daddy, but of course I knew. I knew all along.
"I'm going to Calista's place."
"Yep, little Opal is all grown up now and I'm gonna take her home."
