Ch27: Epilogue


"Hikaru, I don't really know if singers can go on maternity leave." Kessi rolled her eyes at his persistance for her to take maternity leave.
"Why must you make life so hard." Hikaru let his head fall onto the table.
Kessi shook her head. "Hon, God created women to make a man's life hard."
"That's not the only thing he intended to make hard by creating women," He muttered.
Kessi smacked his arm. "Stop being such a damn pervert!"

Hikaru rubbed his arm. "That hurt," He whined.
"Deal with it." Kessi picked up her book and continued reading.
"C'mon," he persisted.
Kessi groaned.
"You're eight months pregnant. You take some kind of break!"
"Hikaru, this conversation is over."
"But, Kessi-"
"OVER!" Kessi stood and left the room, effectively ending that conversation, smiling at her dramatic exit.


"So, when are you going to the doctor next?" Kaoru asked.
"Tomorrow is my next appointment," Kessi said, smiling.
He nodded.
"Why are you worried?" Kassi asked.
"I am not!" Kaoru denied quickly.
Kassi scoffed. "I may be six months along, but I'm not stupid, dear."
Kaoru sighed. "Okay, fine. I am worried."
"Don't be. I'm capable of this all and the baby and I will be just fine."

Kaoru sighed.
"Don't be such a worry wart." She smiled. "Everything is gonna be alright." She patted his arm. "Now, if you don't get a move on, you'll be late for your business meeting like your brother always is."
"I'm going, I'm going." Kaoru got up and began walking out of the room.
"Nice ass!" Kassi said with a grin.
Kaoru laughed. "Really?"
"I couldn't resist."
