In The Hollow Of His Hand
“…but it could wait till your return.” She said.
“Some news… Are you expecting?” I asked joyfully.
“Don’t be ridiculous.” She responded amidst laughter.
“I mean it. It would be nice though. Can you just tell me? I won’t be home until late next month.” I said.
This suspense wasn’t good for me.
“Nope, your dad and I agreed to wait till you come home.” She responded.
“I give up. I have to go. Send my love to Chad and Chelsea.” I said.
“I will. Take care of you. Love ya.” She said.
“Love you too.” I replied and hung up.
Since Bella wasn’t ready to tell me the news, I decided to try my luck with Pop. I hope it works. I didn’t even stop to think whether he was at work or not. I called him. While it rang, I had my fingers crossed.
“Pumpkin!!!” Pop called as he received the call.
“Pop!!!” I responded.
“You called right on time. I just took a twenty-minute break about two minutes ago.” He said.
“Aren’t I lucky?” I asked.
“No you are not lucky; luck is for losers.” Pop answered.
“Yeah right.” I agreed.
