It was still the middle of the night when Kyla crept to the bathroom. She had been tossing and turning most of the night wondering. And she just couldn’t wait anymore. She had to know.
Carefully closing the bathroom door, she pulled out the pregnancy kit that her masseuse had given her. So many thoughts were filling her mind. Worries, hopes, dreams. But she did know one thing. Terence loved her. He truly did. Terence had been so thoughtful last night, by bringing the table and chairs outside for their dinner knowing that she liked the outdoors. But, the best thing he had said was that he would go to the Wasteland with her if she didn’t become pregnant. That had made all the difference in the world to her. Kyla thought about last night and smiled wistfully. Yes, Terence was a good sim, and was very kind to her. Kyla just knew he would never leave her. They were going to be together, no matter what. So, Kyla had nothing to lose and everything to gain. If she wasn’t pregnant, she would just tell Terence and they would try for a baby again. Kyla closed her eyes and wished a silent wish and took the pregnancy test. She checked twice and there was no mistaking it. Yes, indeedy, she was pregnant! A wave of happiness swept over her and she wanted to shout it out at the top of her lungs. “I’m pregnant! I’m pregnant!” But the first person she wanted to tell was Terence. She opened the bathroom door and ran into the bedroom.Kyla opened the door to the bedroom and saw that Terence was still asleep. She just couldn’t wait until morning to tell him. She couldn’t go back to sleep, she just had to tell him now. “Terence, Terence, wake up! I have some exciting news! Terence, I’m pregnant. We’re pregnant. We did it!” Kyla said enthusiastically.Terence opened his eyes groggily, but when he heard the word pregnant, he almost jumped out of bed.“Oh my gosh, Kyla, is it true? Are you really pregnant? We’re going to have a baby. We’re going to be parents. I’m going to be a father!” Terence could hardly believe it. He was even more excited about the news than Kyla.Terence got up and walked over to where Kyla was and told her she looked radiant.They sat down on the bed together, and Kyla was just chatting on about what they would name the baby. A girl? A boy? Kyla was just so happy.
Terence had thought of names, too, but as he had already told Kyla, it didn’t matter to him whether it was a girl or a boy. They would talk about baby names a bit later, but for now, he just wanted to take Kyla in his arms and kiss her. Just seeing her so happy made him happy, too.Terence wondered if Kyla knew how truly in love with her he was. He hadn’t said the words out loud yet, but soon, soon, he would tell her. He didn’t want to scare her with his emotions for her, but surely she knew how he felt about her. Terence knew in his heart that Kyla was the only one for him. His life wouldn’t be the same without her. She gave his life meaning. And together, they were going to have a child. A child! Something he had hoped for all his life. Maybe even the most celebrated wonder child in Newcrest.
But he wasn’t thinking about that right now. All he thought about was Kyla and her sweet lips on his.
“Kyla,” Terence whispered in her ear, “Let’s celebrate…”
“Mmm…..oh yes, let’s….” was Kyla’s answer back, “yes…let’s try for a baby again…”
Terence looked at Kyla not understanding what she meant, “But, Kyla, you’re already pregnant…”
“Yes, I know…”, Kyla winked at him and grabbed Terence and pulled him down onto the bed beside her.
As Terence held Kyla in his arms, he thought that this sure beat the celebration breakfast of scrambled eggs and bacon he was planning…..!!!
