I looked at my surrounding as I kept my handbag on the bed and then back at the glass door towards the balcony. Never had I ever thought that I would be returning back to the same place where I used to live and be in a hotel room. Nothing changed in the city and people around me seemed to be moved on with their lives but it was really nice being able to meet my former colleagues.

I made my way towards the balcony as I slid the glass door open and walked out carefully. I was on the twenty-second floor and I looked down towards the street to find a nasty traffic jam and people honking like crazy. The weather was nice and cool but the sun shone brightly as I smiled and went back in.

There was a big mirror in the room which reflected my figure and as I stood right before it, a sigh escaped my mouth as I kept my hand on my belly. I was two months pregnant and surely I did put on some weight which I was afraid that Caleb would notice immediately. Though I acted normal, my heart was racing against my chest when he said I had gained some weight.

I took the flight right away wanting to be with him. I wanted to share with him that I was pregnant with his child and I have a wish to be with him. But, I was not sure how he would react. We were meeting after two months and I was sure he would ever expect me to reveal such a thing. I was scared what if I scared him and what if he was not ready. I can't even think of my life without him.

I knew that there was a lot on his plate and I didn't wanted to add more to his troubles but I had a baby growing inside my belly and he needed to know. I was also worried about my studies and also that vile woman, Giselle who haunted me in my dreams. Just a thought of her wanting to hurt my child or Caleb made me angry and I was shocked how suddenly within no time, I had grown motherly instincts and was being protective of my child.

If anything I knew, I wanted the child. Sure, I was in no way planning to get pregnant or raise a kid or even start my family but it happened. And now, I am really happy and want to share it with it, Caleb. I was also worried about my studies. I had no idea how I was going to cope up with motherhood and my diploma. There was no way, I was going to back down from my studies but there was also no way I would ever neglect my child.

I simply didn't have any idea what to do.

If only I could get some advice from someone then it would have been nice. Time like this makes me miss my parents a lot. I wondered how they would have reacted when I told them that I was pregnant and they had successfully become grandparents to my kid. My mother would have definitely advised me about motherhood and I wouldn't been this stressful.

I turned to my side as I raised my shirt up to look at my belly. It already had a small bump and kept my hand on my belly with a smile on my face when the door opened and Caleb got in as he looked my way raising an eyebrow.

"What are you doing?" he asked as I shook my head and pulled my shirt down as I walked to the bed and sat on it.

"Are you seriously worried that I told you you have put on some weight?" he joked as he placed a bag on the table and walked up to me.

"You are beautiful. Don't worry about such things. I really love the way you are, " he said as he bent down and kissed my forehead.

"But you are right though! I did gain some weight. I should start a diet!" I told him and he huffed.

"No need! You are fine the way you are! Don't go to such extents, " he sat next to me and I hugged him.

"So will you still love me if I grow fat like a cow?" I asked and he chuckled.

"Even if you become an elephant, my love for you won't change, " he told me and I grinned.

"But I can't tell the same for you!" I told him and he furrowed his eyebrows in confusion as he looked down at me.

"What do you mean?" he asked and I pinched his cheeks.

"I loved you only because you are handsome. If you grow fat or old soon then I don't know if I am still going to love you!" I told him and there was a minute of silence between us as we continued to stare at each other and then he spoke: "Take it back!" he whispered and I grinned shaking my head no.

"Take your words back!"

"I won't!"

"Say you will love me even if I grow fat, old or bald!" he argued and I laughed.

"You added bald. You are right though! You will grow bald one day and that would be the last day for me to love you, baldy!" I joked and he pushed me on the bed and got up on me. Immediately, my hands wrapped up on my belly in a protective instinct as he squinted his eyes at me for my action.

"What's wrong?" he questioned as he got off me and I adjusted my shirt as I sat back up.

"Menstrual period cramps!" I lied.


There was a weird silence prevailing between us as we ate in silence but I could feel glancing at me every now and then. Perhaps, he was getting odd vibes from me but I couldn't help it. My kale, black bean, and avocado burrito bowl were so delicious that I couldn't stop myself from ravishing it as I chomped on my food feeling the aroma of the food.

I didn't understand if it was the pregnancy or I was really that hungry after taking a long flight. I looked up at him and smiled with food in my mouth as he smiled back keeping his fork down just simply staring at me.

"Are you hungry?" he asked and I nodded focussing on my food.

"Do you want anything else? I will order it for you, " he said and that made me look down at my food. I was nowhere full. I knew I was already starting to eat like a cow but I couldn't help it.

"Can you order me a sugar snap pea and carrot soba noodles?" I asked as all of a sudden I had a craving to eat some noodles. He looked down at my plate and smiled nodding as he reached for his phone.

"And also an apple pie, please?" I added and went back to finish my food but as I looked back at him he was already staring at me and dialed the number as he ordered my food. Fifteen minutes later, there was a knock on the door and he went up to get my food.

"This smells really nice, " he said and I looked back to find him going through the dish that I had ordered. I gave him a look and he grinned as he came next to me and placed the dish down before me.

"Relax! I am not going to eat it. I'm already full! You can have it all on your own, " he chuckled and I looked back at my food before happily chomping it down.

As I took the last bite of my dessert, I moaned in pleasure savoring the sweet taste for the last time and kept the fork down exhaling out-breath, feeling contented.

"Are you done?" I heard him from somewhere in my hotel room and I hummed in response. I felt his presence from behind me as he leaned down and held my shoulder and whispered near my ears: "Seeing you eat like that has made me hungry, "

His hands traveled down and clasped my hands as he placed a kiss on my neck.

"Caleb, " I said as I got up and he turned me around. His eyes staring only at my lips as he moved forward for a kiss but I took a side step as I walked towards the bed stretching my arms feeling tired.

"Sang!" he exclaimed as he walked behind me wanting to get my attention.

"Don't even think about that. I am really tired today. I want to sleep, " I told him and heard his groan.


"Alright, I shall give you a nice massage, " he looked excited as he made his way to me but I signaled him to stop and he scowled at me.

"It's alright. I don't need a massage but some sleep, " I told him and chuckled rolling my eyes when he dramatically stomped his feet and walked to the other side of the bed and sat down.

"We are meeting after two months, can you even imagine how much I have missed you?" he told me and I nodded pulling the cover.

"Just a nod? Sang I want to have sex with you, " he told me bluntly as I eyed him and slipped down on the bed.

"I am tired, " I told him and he groaned which made me giggle as I turned around away from him not wanting to show him my face as I muffled my laughs and felt him slipping next to me and he wrapped his arms on my torso pulling me closer to him as he sighed next to my ear.

"Fine! We will have it rougher when you are not tired, " he whispered and even though I wanted to slap him, I resisted the urge and intertwined our fingers, closing my eyes as I let sleep take over me. But I did feel him kissing my neck as I fell into a deep sleep.


A frustrated breath escaped my mouth as I applied the concealer on my neck where it had dark, big, visible hickeys. I could see Caleb's grinning and cheeky face from the bathroom's mirror and I glared at h


We were quite the whole ride in the elevator and as I got in his car, he spoke for the first time.

"Listen, Sang. I know you are upset. Don't be upset about what happened up there. My mother is really a nag sometimes but she only wants my happiness and she knows its in you. It is why she is so persistent asking me to get married to you, " he said and all of a sudden my eyes tore up and I nodded looking out of the window when he started the car and drove off towards the driveway.

The truth was I wasn't even upset about his mother but I was upset with him. He said he is not ready to start a life with me. How am I supposed to tell him that I am already pregnant?

What if he tells me to abort?

He should've at least discussed it with me before putting it all out before his mother.

Dear Lord, why do you put me in this type of situation?

Just what did I ever do to deserve this?

I had no idea when tears rolled down my face and all of a sudden I was sobbing. No matter how much I tried to control the tears, still, it spilled and I heard Caleb cursing under his breath as he parked the car at the side of the road.

"Sang are you really that upset? Look, I'm saying sorry to you, " he seemed worried and I took the napkins from the box wiping my tears.

"Sang please? Stop crying! I'm sorry, " he said and I cried even more as I opened the door and ran out towards a bench just near the bridge from where I could see the river. It was dark but the breeze was cold and street lights illuminated the area. Some people were jogging and while some people sat on the other bench near us gossiping.

Some saw me and I felt when Caleb sat next to me passing me a bottle of water.

"Drink this please?" he asked and I took the bottle from him as I gulped down the water and felt relief. My heart was racing against my chest as I sobbed silently and felt him putting his arm around my shoulder.

"I am not at all upset with your mother, " I told him as I looked towards the river. I had no idea how I was going to put it all before him but there was no way I would ever step back from trying.

"I am rather upset with you, " I said and whizzed wiping my tears away. I was fidgeting with the bottle when he took it away from me.

"Why?" he asked.

"I can't cook the way you do, " I joked and he chuckled as he got closer and placed a kiss on my forehead.

"Thank god! You scared me there. I really thought I had made you upset, "

"You did!" I told him still not looking his way.

"I did?"

"Yes. you said you are not ready to start a family with me, " I was honest with my words and heard him taking sharp intakes.

"Wait! I didn't mean it that way. Sang, you got it all wrong. My mom was being persistent and I was trying to save you. I know how badly you want to fulfill your dreams. Did you not leave me to pursue your dreams? I don't want to get in between you and your dreams. Really, " he said and I chuckled.

"So now you are trying to get back at me for leaving you for my studies?" I asked and looked back at him as he shook his head.

"You are getting it all wrong! I didn-"

"What if I tell you that you are already in between? What if I tell you that your mother was right. I could still pursue my dreams even after marriage?"

"Sang you-"

"What if I tell you that I am pregnant with your kid and I came here wanting to start a family with you?" as I said that his eyes widened and the bottle fell from his hand and it rolled down to the road. He looked in shock as I revealed about my pregnancy.

"Caleb, I am two months pregnant. I don't know what you are going through right now and I am sorry for letting you go through this right now even though you said you are not ready but I can't help it! I thought you need to know this. This is your right! Now, I don't even know what I should do, " I told him as I put hands on my eyes and cried out louder letting the tears fall of my eyes.

It was terrible. It wasn't even close to what and how I had imagined I would let him know. This was pathetic. I was crying and being so vulnerable and seeing the way he reacted I was no longer sure what he was thinking.

He sat their quietly, probably in shock while I sobbed harder and leaned down on my knees letting all my frustration out. Now, I didn't think of anything. I let it be all on him and I hoped he would guide me through this. Suddenly, I felt his hand on my back.

"I don't know what to do now, " I sobbed and he made me looked back at him. He held my face and wiped the tears away. There was a big smile on his face as he pulled me for a hug.

"What do you mean by you don't know what to do? Get ready! We are going to be parents. We will be the best parents ever!" he laughed and I cried harder as I hugged him back after his statement. I was so happy that I couldn't even believe my own ears.

He wasn't even angry, not upset but he was so happy and caring as he hugged me tightly and rocked me in the spot.

"This is got to be a dream!" I heard him.

"This is got to be a dream. I can't believe this. I am going to be a father, "

"Thank you, Sangavi. You are the best thing that has happened to me. I really love you so much and I promise I am going to take care of both you and my baby, " he said and as I got back and looked into his eyes.

"Our baby, " I corrected and he nodded as I noticed his eyes glistening up.

"Sorry! Our! Our baby, " he repeated it again and again as I leaned closer and hugged him again as he engulfed me in a tight hug. The tears were long gone replaced by a happy and wide smile as I looked up at the sky. The stars twinkling and at that moment, I only thought of my parents with a thought in my mind, if they were still looking up at me.
