Remar, summer, 2016
It was still early enough for pancakes in the cafeteria, but as soon as her pager went off, Suzanna knew that things would change.
She rushed to the exam room to find Krissy nervously sitting there, tears in her eyes. She was bleeding and cramping, never good signs during early pregnancy.
"Let's see what we have," Suzanna said maneuvering the instruments.
After several tense silent minutes, she smiled. "Here's the heartbeat, can you see it?"
Krissy smiled in relief to see the little rice baby.
"Take it easy from now on, ok. No more marathons for a while."
Krissy nodded, glad to have the tiny print out of her rice baby.
Ming was bored.
She read the same magazine twelve times
and she puttered around the nursery a bit. She couldn't help but caress the changing pad and think of all the stinky diapers that would soon be changed there.
It was Bill and Emma's 10th anniversary,
but they were not spending it together it seemed.
A few birthday celebrations.
Laci McMillian turns 18
as well as her cousin, Veronika Kent.
Lilly Ana McMillian turns 12 and wants to be the most popular girl in school,
along with Alia Shae Wilsonoff-Sagacious who has goals of financial domination in the business world
and Udar Shazad, who seems quite disturbed by the notion of teenagehood, though surprisingly not so disturbed about the notion of aliens and wouldn't mind meeting one in the future.
Also, Sabazo Cunningham-Warwick turns 1 and looks like a splitting image of his father.
