A/N: This takes place after Picking a Winner, only Mary Jo hasn't lost the baby. She is now 23 weeks.
It's a cool spring day in Atlanta, Georgia. Outside was a sign with "Sugarbakers and Associates" on it. Inside the house were Carlene Dobber, Julia and Allison Sugarbaker, Mary Jo Shively, and Anthony Bouvier.
"Julia, why can't we buy a bigger building? This house is too small for our business." Allison whines.
"It may be small for New York City, Allison. But in Atlanta, it's fine!" Julia hollers. Mary Jo and Carlene just look at each other.
"Whoa." Carlene mouths to Mary Jo. The phone rings.
"Sugarbakers." Julia says answering it. "Hang on sweetie… Mary Jo, its Claudia." Mary Jo walks over to her desk and picks up the phone.
"Claudia, what's wrong?" Mary Jo asks. "Okay… Okay… Bring him on over. We won't care… Alright. See you then. Bye."
"What's up?" Carlene asks.
"Claudia has to go to work early and asked if it was okay if she brought Quinton over." Mary Jo responds.
"Sure. We all love Quinton. He's so sweet. Even at 11." Julia says.
"That's what I figured." Mary Jo responds. The phone rings again.
"Hello Sugarbakers." Carlene says. "Yes, we can send somebody out. See you later." Carlene hangs up the phone.
"Who was it?" Mary Jo asks.
"Anthony, Bernice wants you to go pick her up." Carlene replies.
"I am on my way out Carlene. Are you ready for our test on the law making process?" Anthony asks.
"No, I'm not ready. Scared, because I can't study." Carlene responds.
"Study!" Mary Jo exclaims.
"I'm sorry. I will." Carlene says getting out a text book.
"Oh Mary Jo, how has your search been looking for the father?" Allison asks with a disgusted look on her.
"I am starting my search today. I am starting at the fertility clinic and seeing where that can get me." Mary Jo replies.
"I just hope you find what you're looking for." Julia responds.
"Me too." Mary Jo says sipping a cup of coffee.
