"Alright then," Daisy sighed. "I'll find out eventually. Dismissed." Daisy turned on her heel. She had planned to keep the news from the commander for a while, but it now seemed impossible.

"See you," Kevin replied. "It's probably nothing serious," he comforted her, trying to stay positive. 'If she didn't let the commander know, then who told him?' he thought secretly.

"I hope so. See you soon," Daisy said, walking powerfully yet numbly away, as if she was heading off to war.

It amused Kevin to see how nervous she became and he couldn't help laughing behind her back. After she disappeared from sight, he went back to his office and got down to work. His schedule needed to be reshuffled since Daisy was pregnant.

"Good morning, Commander. You wanted to see me?" Daisy entered the commander's office and greeted him with a smile. Not knowing what the commander wanted from her, she was quite on her guard, as much as she tried to hide it.

"Oh, Daisy! Come in and grab a seat," the commander said, a beaming smile on his face, just like every other time he saw Daisy.

"Thanks, Commander. I'd better stand and receive orders," Daisy replied. She thought it a must to mind her manners before figuring out why the commander had asked her to come.

"Ugh. So polite! You'd probably get tired standing there. You don't want to wear yourself out, especially now," the commander insisted. Now it was clear that he did know something about her pregnancy, and Daisy had read between the lines.

"Don't worry, commander," she said. "So what do you need?" Daisy went straight to the point. She wanted to get this over with as soon as possible, rather than continue to beat around the bush.

"Patience, patience," the commander replied, still with his kind smile. If Edward hadn't called and told him about the news, he wouldn't have known that she was pregnant even now.

"I'm always like this, you know," Daisy mumbled.

"So is it true? You're pregnant?" the commander asked. He wasn't in the mood to keep her guessing anymore. For all he knew, she might very well lose her temper if he didn't ask her straight up.

"Wow, you're really well-informed, Commander," Daisy said with a mysterious smile. "Mind tellin

od news," Edward flinched, holding the phone a bit further away from his ear, in case he would lose his hearing in another rain of curses.

"Ugh! You -- You -- Tell him the good news, huh? You got the commander to do everything you want simply by sharing the good news? You're really something, Edward," she said crossly. She was so angry not because she wanted any glory, but because she had put hours and hours of work in the preparation for both the military exercise and the National Day parade. Now she felt so bad, knowing she had to quit those events halfway through.

"Calm down, honey. Remember the baby," Edward said imploringly. He knew she wouldn't take it well. That was why he reminded the commander repeatedly not to say anything about how he knew about her pregnancy. He didn't expect her to find out about it so soon.

"Stop preaching. And don't you dare mention the baby!" Edward had committed the cardinal sin of trying to calm someone down -- don't tell them to calm down. Daisy hung up the phone as soon as she finished speaking. She wanted to dash the phone to the floor but fortunately retained enough sense to settle for forcibly throwing it onto the sofa. Luckily, she didn't lose her head in anger like others.

"Wait, honey! Honey?" Edward was stunned when silence greeted him at the other end. He knew that he was doomed this time, stirring up a hornet's nest. Rubbing his eyebrows, he tried to think of a way to make it up to her before going home today.
