"Heyyy." Gabby said with a wide smile as Terrence walked into her office.

"And how's my queen doing this morning?" He asked as he approached her, Squatted on his kneel and turned Gabby's chair towards him.

"I'm fine." She replied as she kissed his left cheek.

"And the baby?" He whispered as he caressed her belly.

Then she happily replied. "The baby is fine too."

"Good to hear. I hope the morning sickness did not weigh you down today?" He asked concerned.

"My mom was there to help me through it today. And she made sure i had breakfast and took my vitamins before i left the house." Gabby said.

Terrence grinned. "I love your mom already."

"I miss taking coffee and yet i can't stand the smell of it." Gabby groaned.

"I know you do. But i guess its one of the sacrifices a mother has to make." Terrence reasoned and Gabby nodded instantly.

"How's Sophie?" Gabby couldn't help but ask.

"She's good. I was thinking of breaking the news to her about the baby." Terrence said and Gabby got tensed at his statement.

"What if she doesn't like me or does not approve of the baby either?" She asked almost immediately.

"Trust me. Sophia adores you and you have no idea how desperate she wants a younger sibling." Terrence said and Gabby nodded her head slowly and asked "Why didn't you tell her then?"

"Sophie will surely go crazy if she learns that she's going to be a big sister in few months time. But i just felt we should both enjoy the moment first and perhaps we could tell her together on her birthday."

"Which is?" Gabby asked.

"In three weeks. She will be 5. I still can't believe it. She's just growing up so fast." Terrence said in disbelief.

"Anyways will you love to hang out with me tonight?" He asked her with a smirk on his face.

"Are you asking me out on a date?" Gabby teased.

"Something like that." He replied.

"Alright i'm in." She told him.

"Great. See you at 7. Wear something comfortable and i don't want you on heels." He warned.

"Okay my love." Gabby replied as Terrence rose to his feet and kissed her on her forehead.

"Don't stress yourself with work. If you feel tired just let me know okay?" He said and Gabby nodded.

"Bye my love." Terrence said as he gave her a quick kiss on her lips before walking out of her office.

Gabriela was so engrossed with the work she was doing that she failed to notice time had gone. She suddenly felt hungry and wanted to go get something at the cafeteria. So she stood up from her chair and began searching her bag for he

ted her but Serena wasn't the same anymore. And unfortunately, she died few days after she gave birth to Sophie. It was so painful Gabby. Serena was a girl with big dreams and she did not even live long to achieve any of them. Its really painful." Terrence said in tears.

"Then i decided to adopt Sophie. She became legally mine. I see her as my own and i cannot imagine my life without her. At first, i never knew anything about babies but for Sophie's sake i was willing to learn and that was what i did." He said.

"I'm so proud of you Terrence. You raised an adorable little girl. I really really proud of you." Gabby said in tears.

"Sophie became my motivation towards success and i promised myself to keep her happy at all times. I remember when she turned 4, she had asked for her mother. I did not know what to say to her neither did i have the nerve to lie to her. So i just told her that her mom is no more. I showed her Serena's picture too. Sophie was really heartbroken and she cried. But i found a way to calm her down as i assured her that her mom is up in the sky looking after all of us and she wouldn't want to see her precious baby crying. Sophia happens to be a strong girl. just like her mother. Though i did not tell her that i'm not her biological Father or neither is she aware that i was never married to her mother, besides shes still small and will never understand these things." Terrence said as Gabby tried to calm him down by lightly squeezing his shoulders.

"You have really done well Terrence and i'm sure Serena is so damn proud of you up there." Gabby assured.

"We only have you now Gabby. Please don't leave us." Terrence cried into Gabriela's chest.
