"Michael, Pam and I have some news that we think you need to know." I decided to just plain out tell him. It would be better than having him guess, or having someone else tell him for us. "Pam is pregnant." I sort of blurt it out and it sounds kind of rushed, but he knows what I said. You can see it on his face. He understood.
After a few seconds of quiet, I stopped anticipating the Michael spazz. I'm pretty sure Pam and I both were almost positive that he would jump up and scream at the top of his lungs, something would happen to embarrass us both, and then nobody would let us forget this day. But…None of this happened. Michael just sat there and looked dazed.
"For realsies?" He finally responded with a statement that brought us back to the fact that he was still Michael, and he could still flip out.
"Yes Michael, and we would appreciate if you would treat us like nothing is different than before." Pam took my hand and I looked at her. She was smiling, which gave me the idea that she thought everything was okay. I still wasn't quite sure what was going on, but I had a feeling that it would be fine.
"Congrats big man." He said as he got up from his desk and came to shake my hand. I was still a little shocked that there was no freak out, but I was happy in the same.
"Thanks man. Thank you for not making a big scene of this too, we really appreciate it." Pam and I got up and left his office. When Pam shut the door behind her you could almost hear Michael let out a huge breathe of air. I hadn't even realized he was holding one.
At the end of the day Pam and I started packing up our desks and getting ready to leave. It was a little after five, and since most of the people here quit out at about 4:50, it was just Dwight, Michael, Angela, and Pam and I. Just as we were about to walk out the door Michael stopped us. I thought maybe this was where we were going to get it, but he looked like he was almost crying.
"Michael? You okay?"
"Yeah Jim. I'm fine. I'm just so happy for both of you. After we've both waited for you to get together for so long, and get engaged. And know you're going to have a baby… I'm just so happy for you, you're really meant to be together." His eyes started to water, and one sole tear fell down his cheek. I've never seen Michael like this before.
"I… I don't know what to say Michael. Thank you for all of that. We... I…"
"I think what Jim is saying Michael," Pam cut in. Bless her, I was completely lost for words. "We believe that we're really meant for each other, and we're happy that you think so too. And we really appreciate your understanding with all of this." She put her arm around my waist and hugged me. I started to cry. Why does she have to be so perfect?
We walked out of his office and down to our car. We got in and started to drive home. I felt like I needed to say something. So I just said was always on my mind.
"Pam, you know I love you right? Because I love you so much. More than you could possible know." I took my eyes off the road for a second, and looked at her face. She was smiling back at me. She was so beautiful when she gave me that look.
'Yes Jim, actually I did know that you love me. And I'm happy that you do, because if you didn't I would be the loneliest woman on planet earth."
The rest of the car ride consisted of her and I holding hands, and the occasional 'I love you' that one of us whispered.
Sorry To Dissappoint You All, But I'm Planning To Stop The Story Here. Mid Terms Are Coming, And I Just Have No More Time. Sorry.
