Expecting (Sequel to: Shape of My Heart)
(Sitting at my desk writing in my journal)
It's been five years now and Jeff and I are still very happy together. I
never thought I would have everything I wanted at the age of 24 but I do. I
have a loving husband, my own Music Company, and a baby on the way. The
doctor said that my diabetes wouldn't effect the pregnancy unless I didn't
take care of myself and believe me with Jeff around I'm very well taken
care of. Jeff is not only a big time wrestler now he is a musician. He and
his best friend Shannon have this awesome band, Peroxwhy?gen. I know the
names a bit much but I think it's pretty cool. There are three other guys
in the band too. Jr. Merrill plays guitar and does some backing vocals,
Scott Hershner does drums and percussion and Chris Feltner plays bass.
Their first CD comes out next month but there song "On the Edge" is getting
mad airplay and the coolest part of the song is my verse. No I'm only
kidding I say like two little lines in the chorus but it was really fun. I
am working on my own CD at the moment and Jeff is helping with the lyrics.
I already have a name for the CD.EXTREMELYKAOTIC1. This producing stuff is
really fun. Jeff is trying to make me slow down now that I'm pregnant but I
want to speed up. I'm only five months and everything is going good so I
think I'll keep working a while longer. KAOS INC. would fall apart without
me. It's my company I have to keep scouting for new talent. Right now I
have four groups including Peroxwhy?gen and nine solo artists well ten if I
"Are you going to help me paint or write in that journal all day?" I heard
Jeff yell from the nursery.
"You seem to be doing fine all by yourself in there." I said as I made my
way down the hall.
" You were the one who wanted to paint now I'm doing all the work."
" I know how much you like to create so I'm giving you your space." I said
"It looks great in here." I said looking around at the multicolored room
with all the different characters. "But how do you know the baby will like
"Everyone likes Tigger."
"Do I have to start up the tickle machine?" Jeff asked stepping off the
"You wouldn't dare." I said backing up.
"Oh yes I would." He said as he began tickling me.
"Jeff stop!" I yelled through hysterical laughter.
"Say everyone likes tigger."
"I'm gonna tickle you until you do."
"Then you'll tickle me forever." I said still in hysterics.
"Why can't I ever break you?"
"Because I'm unbreakable."
"Anyone home?" I heard Courtney yell from downstairs.
"We're in the nursery Court." I yelled back.
"What's going on up here?" Courtney asked entering the nursery.
"I'm being attacked by the tickle machine."
"Come on bro let her go." Matt said walking in behind Courtney.
"Not until she says everyone likes Tigger."
" Jeff come on look at her face she's red as an apple." Courtney said
trying to pull me away from him.
"She knows I'll stop when she gives in."
"Jeff you know she never gives in." Matt said.
"Yeah I know but it's so fun to torture her."
"Fun huh? Ok wait until you go to sleep buddy." I said.
"What's that supposed to mean?" Jeff asked as he stopped tickling me.
"You'll find out tonight." I said with a devilish smile.
"Bro she's got that look in her eyes. She has something in mind."
"Yeah I know I think I'll sleep with one eye open tonight." Jeff said
"So what brings you two by today?" I said changing the subject.
"Well Courtney and I were wondering if you two wanna go out to dinner with
us tonight." Matt said.
"Our Treat." Courtney threw in.
"Alright what's up?" I asked.
"Nothing. We just though we should all hang tonight."
"No there is something going on. I know you too well Court you never treat
people to anything unless you have done something or if you want
"Come on Lex cut me some slack. I promise its just dinner."
"If you say so. Jeff you wanna go?"
"Sure. Sounds like fun."
"Ok we have reservations at Jack Astor's at 8."
"How'd you know we'd say yes?"
"Because I know you." Courtney said smiling.
"Yeah whatever. We'll meet you guys there at 7:45."
"Ok that's cool." Courtney said.
"See you guys tonight." Matt said giving me a big hug and a kiss.
