The Addams Family

Chapter 1: The Start of the Family

My name is Morticia Addams. I was originally Morticia Frump, but after I married my husband Gomez one year ago I became Morticia Addams. I'm on my way home from my monthly check up with the family doctor. I got wonderful news from him. I'm having my first baby. There's only two things I'm worried about right now. How Gomez will react to the news and how to tell him. As I walk to the car (where our butler, Lurch, is waiting), I think about how he may react. When I got to the car. Lurch cave me a concerned look and groan.

"I'm alright, Lurch." I said, with a little too much notation of my condition.
He groans again. It's not easy to fool him.
I sighed, "Alright, Lurch. Mr. Addams and I are having a baby."
Lurch groaned with excitement. I'm also excited, yet scared. I guess it's normal to be both.

When we arrived home, everyone asked If I was alright. I, of course, said yes. After all, what's bad about bringing a child into the world? When I walked into the kitchen, without realising she was there, I turned around to see Mama (my mother-in-law) standing behind me.

"Morticia, I know what's wrong with you." she said, smirking.
"What, Mama?" I asked, crossing my arms.
"You're pregnant." she replied.
"How did you..." I began.
"My crystal ball." she said.
"Really?" I asked.
"Yes." she said.
"Mama, how do I tell Gomez?" I asked.
"With whatever you're comfortable with." she advised.
"Thank you, Mama." I said.
"I do what I can." she said.

Later, when Gomez and I were alone, him reading the paper and me knitting a pair of pajamas for the baby. I decided to tell him the news.
"Darling?" I said.
"Yes, Tish? I something wrong?" he asked, putting the paper down.
"I have some news to tell you." I said.
"What, my dark angel?" he asked.
"Well... I'm not sure how to say this." I said.
"Just however you're comfortable, Cara Mia." He said.
"Darling... We're..." I began. I suddenly couldn't breath.
"We're what, Querida?" he asked, holding my hand.
"We're... having a baby." I said when I got my breath back.
Gomez's eyes widened, "We're..."
I nod and Gomez smiles, "I'm going to be a father!" he exclaimed.
I smile as he embraces me. He took it better than I expected.
