I soothed myself by making some macaroni in my new kitchen.
Dammit! I sat down at the table and shoveled the burnt food in my mouth. This tasted like crap, but at least I wasn't at the bistro!
And then inspiration hit.
"Sure," she answered.
I attempted to sound as casual as possible, "Bring your roommate, as well."
"Wait, what?" Narcissa sounded perplexed, but didn't argue too much.
Narcissa shrugged. "Maybe she's running a little late. Let's grab a drink while we wait."
All of a sudden, I paled....
Baby.... of course!
Narcissa sighed. "I guess not. I wonder why she stood me up!"
"Mad? How could I be mad?" Carmen told me. "I love you and want to spend the rest of my life with you! I can't wait for our baby to be born!"
I sighed a huge sigh of relief.
"I'd be honored," I said flirtatiously, holding my hand out towards him to accept my wedding ring.
We had a private, common-law marriage hand-fasting & then it was official. We could go down to City Hall another day to file the paperwork.
"What? Why?" Carmen asked, surprised.
I made a face. "I'm not crazy about your last name."
"Fisher? Why not?"
"Fish are kind of gross," I told him. "And smelly..."
Carmen pulled me back towards him. "I don't care," he promised, eager to get back to celebrating.
"Wait, what?!" he yelped in surprise, yet again.
