AN: This is a VERY short chapter to start the Third part of the "Legacy" series. The rest will be their normal length. As I was writing this I found that I couldn't think of anything else to put in the chapter.
I'm not going to cheat you by saying this is the only chapter you'll get before I leave for New York. I'm going to try and post another one before Monday.
I just wanted you to have this now.
Previously (Final Chapter of "Another Legacy"):
"Derek, I love you more than my life but I didn't make the decision for you." Casey said seriously.
"I think I'm pregnant."
THE FINAL LEGACY
You know you've reached a certain point in a relationship with a woman when you seem to spend the majority of your spare time waiting outside of female restrooms. Derek had been there for a while.
He meant that in two ways:
Firstly he had been in this relationship with Casey for several months now…and frankly he had been sitting outside of washrooms on her behalf since the day they first met.
Secondly, he really had been sitting outside of this particular bathroom for a very long time…how long did it take to have a pee?
"Do you need a glass of water or something?"
"No. What I need is for you to stop keep interrupting me every thirty seconds with inane questions and let me pee in peace!"
About thirty seconds later, the door lock clicked and Casey emerged.
"Jeez that took forever, don't they have ones that work quicker?" Derek asked standing up from his spot on the floor.
"What?" Casey asked in a distracted voice. "No. I've never been able to pee with someone listening at the door. It took me half an hour to find the…urge."
Derek stared at her.
"I can't believe we're discussing your…peeing habits."
"Me either." She admitted. Her hands were shaking.
"So how long do we wait?" Derek asked. He was new to this. Despite all the hints through school that this might be an accidental something he would have to go through…possibly more than once, he'd never done this before. This was new. This was different. This was…
But it was also something else.
Something he wouldn't let himself contemplate until he knew for sure. Something…hopeful?
But it might be nothing.
SO…until nothing became something anything could happen.
"Sorry?" Casey broke across his thoughts. "What did you say?"
"I asked how long we have to wait."
"No. It changed straight away. You're going to be a father."
