Daniel and I used to be lovers. We dated for a reasonable time which made us think we were truly meant for each other. Almost everyone in his family knew me and same as mine. He was kind of like the son my mom never had and the brother Abby never had.

"The day I found out I was pregnant with Daniel's child was one of the best days of Daniel's life and my life too and the day I had a miscarriage was the worst day of my life."

"A few weeks before I found out I was pregnant with Dan's child, things were not very rosy between us. He was being so distant and hardly hard time for me. But things went back to normal and became even better when I told him that I was expecting his child."

"He loved me more, he became more possessive of me and to some extent, he became clingy just to make sure myself and the baby were alright. He hardly let me raise a finger even though I was just three weeks far."

"But everything came crashing down when I miscarried." Fresh tears rolled down Lauren's cheeks and she didn't bother to wipe them off this time around.

"I became disgusting in Dan's eyes and he blamed me for it. He said I murdered our baby, he called me horrible names and he made it clear to me that maybe it was better that I lost the baby because of how irresponsible I would be as a mother. He said the baby deserved a better mother than me."

"I was more than heartbroken, I was devastated. He blamed me for what I did not do on purpose."

"I was grieving for the baby I lost and he did nothing but put all the blame on me, making me feel even more guilty about all that happened."

Stanley who had tears in his eyes caressed Lauren's hands as she spoke. He listened to her attentively as she voiced everything out.

"It took a very long time for me to heal from the miscarriage and accept the fact that Dan and I were no longer an item. I think what hurt me, even more, was the fact that I thought he was the one for me and I virtually sacrificed a lot of things just so I and him would work. But after the miscarriage, he made it clear that we were over."

"Thanks to my mom and Abby who put up with me until I went back to my usual self. I can't imagine how I would have survived without their help."

Lauren swallowed painfully and looked into Stanley's teary eyes.

"I'm not usually a fan of sweets but it's been all I've always wanted to eat for the past few weeks. Also, I started craving for food that I don't even like on a normal day and I've been throwing up and feeling dizzy. It was only two weeks ago that it hit me of what could be the possibility of it."

Stanley smiled and the tear he had been holding all through finally rolled down his cheek.

He caressed Wrenny's wet cheek. "We are going to have a baby?!"

"I think so." She sniffed.

"I bought a test last week but I still haven't gotten the balls to take it."

"I'm scared Stan and at the same time, I don't want to disappoint you. What if I miscarry again? What if I can't be a good mother because of how irresponsible I am? What if Dan was right about me being unfit to raise a little human?" She cried.

"This is why I distanced myself from you. I was afraid you'll hate me when you find out about my past with Daniel. Not that I pray I lose this child but if th

doing? Or I should contact mine instead?"

Lauren's lips curved into a small smile. "Peanut????!"

Stanley shyly scratched the back of his head. He hadn't realized the sudden nickname he gave their unborn child.

"I was opportune to accompany Anita to one of Alexa's check-up. Ann was barely showing then and when the picture popped up on the screen, I remember commenting that my niece looks like a peanut."

"I can only imagine that our baby is of that same size. It's okay if you don't like the nickname. I promise not to mention it again."

Lauren smiled. "I find 'peanut' very cute. It's better than referring to our miracle as it, him or her."

Stanley smiled in return.

"I don't have any Obgyn in mind. We can go for the one your doctor recommends."

Stan tucked a strand of hair behind Lauren's ear. "No problem love. I'll get in touch with him as soon as possible."

"I know you've not had any food since morning. Tell me what you want so I'll make it for you."

Honestly, Lauren was not hungry but she knew she had to take something for peanut's sake.

"I think anything will do. Hopefully, I'll be able to keep it down. I've been throwing up a lot lately." She admitted.

Stanley nodded. That must have been the reason for the little weight she lost. "I'm sorry I haven't been there for you all these while. I should have paid more attention to your symptoms."

"It's fine. There was no way you would have known." She intertwined her hands with his.

"You can take a shower while I prepare something for you two. Or do you need me to assist you?" He asked with a smirk plastered on his face.

Lauren blushed. She has missed the feel of Stanley in her but now was not the time to compensate for the two weeks celibacy. She wanted to take a shower, eat something and then cuddle with Stan.

She was sure as hell that if she allows Stanley to either shower for her or with her, they will only come out of the bathroom in the next one hour.

"Don't worry, I'll manage." She assured.

Stan nodded. "I'll be in the kitchen. Shout my name if you need anything and I'll be at your service."

He stole a kiss from her before exiting the bathroom.
