Here is the next chapter, Thank You for the great reviews! I do not own Rookie blue
(Noelle, on the phone with her mom)
"Okay, okay yes Mom I heard you the first few times. Yes I am lying down and I am relaxing. No mom I don't need anything. Please mom you can stay home, you do not need to come back. I am okay. Thank you for all your help. Oh wait mom I have to go to the bathroom. Talk to you later, bye."
After I hang up, I finally can take a deep breath. My mom has been driving me crazy since I was discharged from the hospital, earlier today. She is great, but she can be so stressful at times. I am lying on the couch, still thinking about our conversation a few minutes ago. I am a grown woman, but she still treats me like a child.
Since I have come home, if I would let her she would hover over me, as if I were at deaths door, instead of pregnant. I tried to reassure her that I will be fine on my own for a while, and Frank will be coming over soon, and of course she sucks her teeth. I smile thinking back to the conversation we had, when I told her I was pregnant."
"You're what?" my mom says
"Pregnant, yes mom I am pregnant."
I see her looking at me differently, putting two and two together. I guess she sees the change in my body. She now, knows why I have been avoiding her, for some time now.
"Hmm, so how is that possible?" she asks "I don't see a ring on your finger. You know, I didn't raise you like that. Wait, you didn't go off and go do that funny stuff, and get yourself knocked up in some doctor's office? So unnatural, back in my day there was only one way to do get pregnant, and that is the old fashioned way."
"Okay mom, please stop, I really do not need to hear you talking about this."
"Please do not act like you do not know, how you and your sister got here." she says looking at me straight
With a disgusted and uncomfortable look "oh, can you please stop. I have not had morning sickness in a while, but you talking about this is making me feel nauseous."
With a serious look "Okay, okay, I will stop, but Noelle tell me the truth, did you go through with the IVL or IVF thing?"
"Yes mom I did go through with the IVF, and no the first time it did not work, but in the between time I met someone great." I say with a smile
She perks up and asks "ohh, yes finally who is he? Do I know him?
"Well, actually yes you do, we have been friends for a while now. We actually work together."
Her demeanor changes "please don't tell me it is that guy, what's his name, beast."
With a groan of frustration "mom you know his name is not beast, his last name is Best, but you can call him Frank, and yes actually it is him"
She sucks her teeth.. "I knew something was going to happen between you two."
"Mom, why do you do this? Why don't you like him We have been friends for a while and we are seeing each other now"
"Well evidently, you are" she says glaring at my growing stomach "So, is this man, going to make an honest woman out of you? I don't want to hear about you living with another man again, without a ring on your finger and bringing a baby into that mess."
"Mom, you know what I am tired of this." I get up and grab my stuff. "I did not come here for your opinion and judgment. I thought you would like to know that your daughter is having a baby, with the man that she loves. Yes Mom, I love Frank and I don't care what you think about him. Frank is a great man, and he is going to be a great father."
With that I walked out the house and slammed the door.
~~End of flashback~~
That was a tough day, but it was victory for me. I finally had the last say and didn't accept the stuff she was saying about me or Frank. We have come a long way from that argument, and she is now "warming up" to Frank. When I was in the hospital, they even had a civil conversation. I still don't understand why she doesn't like him.
So lost in thought, I didn't hear someone knocking on the door. I get up and walk slowly to the door. Every time I get up from the couch, I feel like I have gained a few more pounds. Once I get there, I look through the peep hole and I am surprised to see Traci. I had expected it to be Frank; sometimes he forgets to use his key.
I take a few deep breathes, dreading this conversation and open the door for Traci. She looks at me for a few minutes and doesn't say anything.
As casually as I can, I say "Hey Traci, come on in, it's good to see you."
I see her about to say something, but than her eyes bug out, and I know she notices my stomach. For the first time I not wearing a Maternity shirt or hiding behind something, like I usually do at the barn. I know I look really pregnant, with this t-shirt on.
I look at her, and I see tears in her eyes and she looks at me says.. "Why didn't you tell me that you were pregnant?" Why did you make me put you and your baby in danger? Why Noelle, Why?
Okay, for this chapter I tried to keep on the lighter side. I had a fun with the conversation between Noelle and her mom. Well thanks for reading… Please review and let me know what you think.
