McKeller Flash Fiction Challenge
What's it Say?
Rodney had been more or less content with his life after he and Katie had broken up. He had work, friends, family, and his hobbies, which was kinda like work. Then one day, he couldn't remember when, there it was: love. He loved Jennifer and, amazing at it seemed, she loved him, too. However, today everything was going to change…or not.
He hurried down the hall to the quarters he shared with his wife of two years. He'd been working and completely forgotten about the time. She'd be mad, he was certain.
The door slid open, he tossed his computer on the desk and threw his jacket in the direction of the bed. "Jennifer!"
Her voice was muffled. "You're late! I had to start without you."
"Sorry. It's all Radek's fault. He made this huge mess out of my experiment when he…"
"Never mind, Rodney. I'll be right out."
The chime beeped and John Sheppard entered without invitation. "Well?"
The physicist glared at him then got up to pace. "Nothing yet."
"Relax, Rodney. It'll be fine."
"For you, maybe. I'm the one who…"
Once again the chime beeped and John went to answer it for his friend. Teyla and Ronon had arrived.
"Is there any word?" Teyla asked.
"Nope. Still hasn't come out."
Ronon crossed his arms and leaned against the wall. "What's the big deal?"
John snorted as sat on the side of the bed and leaned on his hands. "If you think he's antsy now, just wait till the big day comes."
Uncharacteristically, Rodney slapped a hand on the wall, wincing when it hurt. "What's taking so long?" He turned anxiously when the bathroom door opened and Jennifer came out. "Well? What's it say?"
His wife didn't say a word, just held up the pregnancy test and grinned.
