Okay so it wasn't as long as I expected it to be, but was fun writing none the less.


Kate was stood in the kitchen and Rick was wildly walking up and down the length of the kitchen.

"Rick would you please stop pacing."

"I'm sorry but whenever someone starts a sentence with we need to talk it's not good." He looked at her. "Especially not in my experience."

"Well maybe if you stopped pacing and let me talk to you."

Rick stopped for a moment and looked at her.

"Well?"

"Talk about impatient people." Kate said giving him an eye roll.

"Seriously Kate what's this all about?"

"First take a seat."

Rick stood where he was. She looked at him. "Please?"

"Can you just not put this off and tell me now?"

"Look, this is hard for me to say as it is…"

She was cut off by him. "I knew it, it's me isn't it."

"What! No!"

"You can tell me Kate, I can handle it." He stared at her. "Wait no. I can't, whatever I've done I'm sorry."

"Rick you haven't done anything."

"Well then why start a sentence with we need to talk unless it's not to break up with me?"

"Because we need to talk."

"Right, so what do you need to talk about?"

Kate sighed and dragged him to one of the stools. "Sit." She demanded.

He took a seat almost immediately and stared at her. "Okay Kate really I've heard of tormenting me but really can't you tell me now?"

"Okay so today I went to see Lanie."

"Yes I already know that."

Kate looked at him. "Let me finish."

He nodded his head and stared at her waiting for her to continue.

"Well I had some suspicions and well she confirmed them for me."

He raised his eyebrows. "Okay, and those were?"

She opened her mouth but wasn't sure how to tell him. "Okay well…"

She looked at her hands that were rested on his knees. He picked his hand up and with rested a finger below her chin he lifted it up so she looked in his eyes.

"Kate just tell me."

"Rick…" He nodded his head for her to continue. "I'm pregnant."

He stared at her. "Are you serious?"

She looked at him. "No! I get a kick out of telling you that I am, just to get your hopes up."

He sat there speechless. "Do you know how far along you are?"

"I'm not sure a few weeks I guess."

Rick smiled at her. "Wow." He whispered.

He grabbed her by her waist and pulled her closer slowly kissing her. She wrapped her arms around his neck and his hand made it's way through her hair. They stood there for a few minutes before they heard someone clearing their throat.

"Sorry to interrupt but you've been in here for a while and the foods getting cold."

They turned to look at her. "Okay, pumpkin be out in a sec."

Alexis turned back around and made her way into the living room again.

"So should we tell Alexis?" Rick asked.

"Can we just keep it between us for a couple of months?" She asked hesitantly biting her lip.

"Whatever you want to do is fine by me."

She smiled at him. "Thank you."

He slowly moved his hand to her stomach and left it there. She placed her hand on his and then leant to kiss him again.

"Come on Alexis will be wondering where we've got to."

Rick smiled at her and stood up entwining their fingers. "Oh and one more thing Kate."

"Yes?"

"We need to have a talk about how to properly start a conversation. You almost gave me a heart attack."

"Well it's all my plan to keep you on your feet."

They laughed and slowly made their way towards Alexis who was impatiently waiting for them.

"Finally!" She said looking towards them. "I thought you were never going to come out."

Rick sat next to her and put his arm around Kate's shoulder.

"So I take it she still wants you around since there wasn't any shouting."

Rick looked at Kate. "See! Wording!"

She rolled her eyes. "You seriously complain too much."
