Anita's Secret 2
The Wedding is near!
Chapter 4

"Anita, do you remember when…" Victor looked to Anita. He just walked out of his bedroom, while Anita just wanted to go downstairs to do the laundry.

Anita sighed as she turned towards Victor. "She'll arrive on the airport at six, Victor." It's been the third time that he asked her when Mildred would arrive at the airport. "You'll have more than enough time left to help me with the laundry." Victor would pick up Mildred from the airport and Anita would make some dinner. But Victor wanted to be on time and decided to leave home an hour before the plane would land.

Victor smiled. "Alright." he said and Anita turned around again. He walked towards her and he placed his arms around her waist. "I'll help my fiancée with her laundry." he whispered in her ear.

Anita shook her head. Sometimes, Victor chose the wrong time to be romantic. "The laundry won't wash itself, Victor." she said. She turned around and she gave Victor the laundry basket. "I'll see if Hannah needs me." and she walked towards Hannah's room.

Victor smiled a little bit. He got the idea that Anita was a little bit nervous for today. Because today would be the day that they would tell Mildred about this wonderful news. He put the laundry in the washing machine and he placed the basket on top of the machinery. When he turned around, he noticed the time on the clock. He figured that it would be smarter to leave now, before he would get stuck in a traffic jam.

He walked back upstairs to say goodbye to Hannah and Anita. When he reached the top of the stairs, he noticed that the door of Anita's bedroom was wide open. He sneaked up to her room and he smiled when he saw her standing in front of her mirror. He walked towards her and he placed his arms around her waist. "I thought you were going to see if Hannah needed you."

"Hm, she's in her room, drawing something for Granny." she sounded like she was thinking about something else.

"What are you thinking of?" he whispered in her ear and he looked at her in the mirror.

Anita smiled a little bit and she turned around in his arms. "Nothing." she whispered. "I was just trying to imagine how Mildred would react to the news."

Victor smiled back and he gave her a soft kiss on her lips. "We'll find out about that soon enough." he said and he let her go. "I'm going to pick her up at the airport."

Anita smiled and she gave him a kiss on his cheek. "Just drive safely."

Victor walked out of the room and he walked towards Hannah's room. When he opened the door, he saw the little girl standing in front of her closet. "Hey princess," Victor started and Hannah turned around. "what are you doing?"

"I want to wear my best dress for Granny." said Hannah and she looked around her. There were some clothes on the floor already and it looked like Hannah wanted to throw some more on the ground.

"I don't think you need to wear your best dress for Granny." said Victor and he caught a sweater Hannah wanted to throw onto the floor. "And you do know that you already look beautiful, don't you?" At that moment, Hannah was wearing a purple sweater and a pair of jeans.

"But I wanted…" Hannah started, but Victor didn't let her finish her sentence.

"Come on, I'll help you to clean this and then I'll go to get Granny. She'll be happy to see you, no matter what you'll be wearing."

Just when Victor and Hannah started to pick up the clothes, Anita walked into the room. "Victor, Hannah, what happened in here?" she said when she saw the clothes in her daughters room. She looked to Victor, who was still had the sweater in his hands. "And shouldn't you be on your way towards the airport?"

Victor nodded and he gave Hannah a kiss on her forehead. "Just be good and clean up your clothes." he said to her and he walked to Anita. "I'll be back soon." he said while he gave Anita the sweater and he walked away.

Anita just sighed and she looked to Hannah. "You heard your father, sweetie." she said and she placed the sweater in the closet. "Let's clean up this mess and then you can help me with making some tea." and the two girls started to clean the room.

===

Victor looked around him. He was at the London Airport, trying to find the arrival hall. The airport was larger than he expected it to be. It's been a while since he was there for the last time, maybe after the wedding, he, Anita and Hannah should go on holiday together.
There was this other small thing. It took him longer than normally to drive to the airport, because of a traffic jam. Victor was just hoping that his mother didn't have to wait that long.

"Victor!" suddenly sounded and Victor turned around. There he saw his mother sitting at a table next to a restaurant.

"Mom." said Victor with a smile as he walked to her table. "How long have you been here?"

"Half an hour, maybe even longer." said Mildred. She stood up and she gave Victor a hug. "It was my own fault. I gave you the wrong time of arrival."

Victor smiled. "Come, I'll pay the bill and then we'll go home. I think that Hannah can't wait for us to come home." Before Mildred could protest, Victor walked to the wait and he paid the bill. Then he took Mildred's suitcases and they walked to the car. "How was your holiday?" he said as he started the engine.

Mildred smiled. "It was wonderful to travel through Europe by train." she said. A couple of weeks ago, Mildred told Victor and Anita that she wanted to see more of the world. It was Anita's suggestion to take the train. It was the ultimate way to see something of the world. You could go to everywhere you wanted to go and the only thing left to do was to sit back and relax. "I could do this every year." Mildred added as she closed her eyes. Even though the flight wasn't long, it was still an exhausting flight and she figured that she would be awake by the time they would arrive at Anita's house.


===

"Mom… Mom, wake up. We're home."

Mildred opened her eyes and she saw Victor standing next to her, outside the car. "I fell asleep, didn't I?" she asked as she stepped out of the car.

Victor laughed. "Yes, you fell asleep." he said as he closed the door.

Just when he and Mildred reached the front door, the door went open and Anita appeared in the doorstep. "How was your holiday, Mildred?" she said with a big smile.

"It was wonderful." said Mildred and she gave Anita a hug. "Where's Hannah?"

"Granny!" suddenly sounded and the little girl rushed down the stairs. "You're back!"

Mildred laughed when Hannah gave her a hug. "I missed you too, honey." she said and she kneeled down to Hannah's level. "I have something for you."

"Really? What is it?" asked Hannah while she jumped up and down.

"Hannah," said Anita and she looked at her daughter. "We will go inside and Daddy will get the gifts."

Mildred looked at Victor. "They are in the green suitcase." she said and Victor nodded.

"I'll get them." he said and the women walked inside, while he grabbed the suitcase.

"It was really such a wonderful idea of yours." said Mildred to Anita when they walked into the living room. "I told Victor that I wouldn't mind it to do it every year." She sat down onto the couch and Hannah jumped right next to Mildred. Mildred pulled Hannah closer to her. "So, how much did you missed me?"

"I missed you this much." said Hannah and she held her hand as far apart as she could.

"And I missed you that much as well." said Mildred and she gave Hannah a hug.

"Do you want some tea, Mildred?" Anita asked while she walked to the kitchen.

"I'd love to."

While Anita made some tea in the kitchen, Victor walked into the living room with a suitcase. "Here's the suitcase with the gifts." he said while he placed it next to the couch.

"Thank you, Victor." said Mildred and she opened the suitcase. "Let me see, this one is for you, Hannah." and she gave a small gift to Hannah.

Hannah opened her gift and she gave Mildred a hug as soon as she got her present unwrapped. "Thank you, Granny." she placed the wrapping paper away and she looked to the little teddy bear she got from her grandmother.

"You're welcome, honey." said Mildred and Anita walked into the living room.

"What did you get from Granny?" asked Anita when she placed the tray onto the table. Then she saw a small, yellow label attached to the ear of the small teddy bear. "Mildred, is that a 'Knopf in Ohr' bear?" she asked. These kinds of bears were one of the most expensive bears you could think of. They were German finest bears, but still… Anita couldn't believe that Mildred would actually buy such a bear.

"Yes, it is." said Mildred and she looked to Hannah. "I want you to be careful with it." Hannah nodded and Mildred grabbed an other gift out of her suitcase. "This is for you, Anita." she said and she gave a wrapped box to Anita.

Anita looked with some surprise to her mother-in-law. "Mildred, you shouldn't…"

"But I did, now open your gift."

"Alright, alright, I'll open it." said Anita with a smile and she opened her fit. "Belgium chocolate. Mildred, this… I was just getting…"

"Honey, you don't need a diet." said Mildred and Anita chuckled.

"Well, thank you, Mildred." Anita said and after she gave Mildred a hug, she sat down on her chair.

"This one is for you, Victor." said Mildred and she looked to Victor who was sitting in his chair.

"Mom, really, the box with chocolate is more than enough." said Victor while he stood up from his chair. "Don't you think, dear?" and he looked with a devilish smile to Anita.

"Do you really think that I would share my chocolate with you, do you?" said Anita with a teasing smile.

Victor laughed and he carefully opened the small gift his mother gave to him. "Oh, mom, this is really beautiful." he said and he lifted a small pocket-watch out of the box. "You shouldn't have done this."

"But I did." said Mildred with a smile She looked to the couple. Since she walked through the front door, she had the feeling there was something going on. "Just tell me one thing. What are you two hiding?"

Victor and Anita looked to each other. "Mom," Victor started and he walked to Anita's chair, "I asked Anita to marry me."

Mildred smiled and she walked to Victor and Anita. "Congratulations." she whispered. "When are you two getting married?"

"Well," Victor looked to Anita, "how about December the seventh?"

Anita smiled. "I think that's a great idea." she whispered and Victor gave her a kiss on her lips.
Okay, first of all, I'm kinda stuck. The end kinda... well, it ain't great.

Second... I guess there is a writersblock coming up. Stuck with the things I want to write or not.

Anyways, if you find a mistake, let me know about it. English appears to get worse by the day or something like that.

Just one last thing:
Hannah Volt belongs to me :iconeszies-eszie: and Sara :iconmskm2001:
