Anita's Secret 2
The Wedding is near!
Anita let out a deep sigh. This was it; everything was taken care of now. She got her dress, he had his suit and their family had beautiful clothes too. Victor's parents had the rings and Anita's parents had Hannah's dress for safekeeping.
A sudden knock on the window made Anita look up. Outside was Mildred standing and Anita walked to her front door. "Hi Mildred, what are you doing here?" she asked as she let Mildred inside.
"I was just wandering around." said Mildred. "Well, that and I did some shopping." she placed the shopping bags onto the ground.
Anita chuckled. She could have known that Mildred would be doing some last-minute shopping before the wedding. "Well, I just made some tea." she said and walked to the kitchen. "Do you want some?"
"Yes, please. All that shopping had made me thirsty." Mildred sat down onto the chair and she looked towards the kitchen. "Anita, how do you feel?" She figured that the bride-to-be

Chapter Eleven; Christmas Time
It was Christmas morning and Arthur walked into the kitchen. He was in the mood for some old-English breakfast. "Good morning, Anny." he said and he looked around him. Normally, Anita was already making some breakfast when he would be awake. But now, she was nowhere to be found.
Then, he remembered it. Ever since Anita was pregnant, it became harder and harder for her to get out of bed on time. Not that it mattered anyways, it was a day off.
Just when he placed the kettle onto the gas, he heard someone knocking onto the kitchen door. He turned around to see what moron would be knocking at that time of day and he saw Victor standing there. "What are you doing here?" he asked as he let Victor into the house. It was around eight o'clock, so this couldn't be just a visit.
"I'm here to surprise Anita with some breakfast, made by me." said Victor with a big smile. He figured that it would be a wonderful surprise for Anita.
"Well, she is
A Christmas Wedding 3, Chapter 2
It was a little bit past noon when a dark car drove towards the front door of the castle.
Through the day, the castle of Knightendale was a museum. The ground level and some of the cellars were open for public.
But these people, who were inside the dark car, weren't there to just visit it.
A big, somewhat old looking man stepped out of the car. He went to the other side and opened the door. Anita stepped out of the car. The opening didn't take too long, so she could go back to her castle a little bit earlier. "Thank you, George." she said to her bodyguard. "I'm curious if Abigail is already here."
George smiled. "I think she is, Your Majesty."
Anita smiled and she walked to the front door. The castle had been a museum for a few years now and Anita got pretty used to that fact.
In the Grand Hall was now a little shop and a few people were waiting to get a tour. There was never a real threat to the Royal family, but they didn't want people just wandering around and coming to the private
A Christmas Wedding 3, Chapter 1
It was a beautiful morning; everywhere in the world. Because it was the day before Christmas.
And it was also a beautiful morning in a country somewhere in the Alps. Knightendale: a small country which had a royal family living at the capital city. The royal castle was built in the 18th century and it still looked that way.
Almost the complete royal family lived in the castle at the moment. And even though it was an early morning, one of the family members was already wandering through the castle. Fully dressed, wearing simple black trousers and a simple grey shirt, she didn't look like she once was the queen of Knightendale.
Mary Lynn Knight had been a queen for many years, until her husband became very ill. She stopped when she arrived at the door which lead to the kitchen. She walked into the kitchen and smiled when she saw a young woman working. "Good morning, Bianca." said Mary Lynn and she walked to the chef. Bianca was thirty-and-somewhat years old and she was one of the best ch

Chapter ten; Our little precious one
It was pretty hard to believe it. Nineteen weeks already and they would be able to see it.
Both Victor and Anita were in the waiting room at the office of the gynaecologist, waiting to make an ultrasound.
"Are you nervous?" asked Victor as he looked next to him. Anita had been silent all morning and he didn't know if it were just the nerves or something else.
Anita looked up and she gave him a little smile. "Just a little bit." she whispered. She had seen the baby before when she was almost nine weeks pregnant, but this would be different now. Because she had made a special appointment so they could go together. Victor wasn't with her when Anita had the first ultrasound. And he knew Victor wanted to come too, because it was his child too. "What about you, Victor?"
Victor gave her a big smile. "I can't wait to see it. I just want to see the feet and the hands and well I want to see it all actually." Of course, Ani

Anita's Secret 2
The wedding is near!
It was a wonderful winter morning on a Saturday. The sun was shining, but there was no sign of any snow yet.
In a house, two people were still asleep. Or so it looked like they were still asleep.
Anita just opened her eyes, but didn't want to move a bit. The night before, Victor proposed that they could sleep together, now their wedding was just one week away. His reason was that he wouldn't sleep at the edge of the bed after they would be married.
And Anita didn't mind. It was wonderful to wake up in the arms of the man you loved the most.
"Good morning, my dear." sounded behind her and Anita smiled. She could have known that Victor was already awake.
"Good morning, Victor." whispered Anita and she turned around. "How did you sleep?"
"Better than the last time." Victor looked to Anita. Even they had slept in one bed together before, Anita still took the biggest part of the bed. "It's a good thing I know already that you ta

Chapter nine; Talking about the mother
It was cold and rainy when the brown-haired Melissa Taylor walked through the hallways of U.Z.Z. She had been back at U.Z.Z. for a month now and it felt wonderful. She loved being a mother, but she loved her job too.
"Good morning, Melissa!" sounded once Melissa entered her room. Melissa smiled. Behind the desk was her dark haired secretary, Roxy. Roxy was Melissa's assistant and secretary, she made all the appointments and she took care of Melissa's schedule. Even though she was just a student from the secretary school, she was a hard worker and a great assistant to Melissa.
"Good morning, Roxy. Any clients today?"
Roxy shook her head. "Well, not before this afternoon. But there is someone waiting for you."
"Alright, I'll see you later, Roxy." This wasn't the first time Roxy let anyone into the office, but it would be someone who was close to her.
Melissa walked into her office and was pretty surprised to see Anita sitting there. "Why,
