This is my first story in what feels like forever. I was on this website a lot when I was younger, but then life happened and I left. I intend to make serious dents in all of the stories I have up by the end of the year. I wanted to do this little fluff piece before I started getting into the more serious things. The first chapter is short, but I have the first five chapters already drafted. It should go fast. I hope you enjoy it. :)
"Paulette! Calm down!"
"CALM DOWN? CALM DOWN! ELLE WOODS, DON'T YOU DARE TELL ME TO CALM DOWN!"
Elle narrowed her eyes angrily, a look on her face that no one ever had ever lived to tell about. The only one who had was her ex-boyfriend, Warner. It instantly shut Paulette up. "Are you kidding me?" she said flatly.
"Nope. No I am not, sir. I-I...oh, for goodness sake, Elle! I do not need FOUR children! And I don't need you yelling at me! And-and I am... I am NOT afraid of you!" Elle just looked at her. "Okay, maybe I am."
"What on earth are you talking about, Paulette?" Elle exclaimed, a laugh escaping her lips. "You and Kyle are the happiest couple I've ever known! And you're a wonderful mother! Justin, James and Jessica all love you so much and you know it." She placed a gentle, friendly hand on her best friend's shoulder and gave her a warm smile.
"I think I ran outta cute J names, Elle! WHAT AM I GONNA NAME THIS ONE, ELLE?"
"Uh, Jonothan, James, Jamie, Janele, Jonie, Jam-"
"I get it, Elle! I get it!" She huffed. "I just don't know what I'm going to tell Kyle! Four kids in three years? We're tired enough as it is and I don't know how I earth I could possibly love another baby as much as I love the kids I already have!"
Elle sighed and embraced her. "It's okay. I know me loving Bruiser is NOT the same thing as you loving your actual children, but I sympathize. I wish I had an answer for you. I do know, though, that your children love you and your husband loves you, and I love you! You have so much love in your heart, Paulette. You're going to be just fine."
Paulette gave her friend a warm smile back at her, and picked up the pregnancy test. Well, that's not good. "Wait, I didn't take the EPT one, you took that one. We only bought one of those." Paulette showed Elle the test and suddenly it felt as if the entire world crashed to a hault.
"Are you fucking kidding me?"
