Chapter Seventeen; A week full surprises
It was almost officially spring. The flowers were blooming, the birds were singing and it was raining cats and dogs. So, it was time for the big spring cleaning. Well, at least it was for Anita. She was busy in the baby room, trying to think of something she could do next. Even though she got some paperwork every now and then, she couldn't really deal with the fact that she had to stay home all day. It wasn't exactly the same. She missed the lunches and the talks with her friends.
She sat down onto the rocking chair and placed her hand onto her stomach. She loved the feeling of her child kicking. It was quite magical and she really couldn't wait to get the child. Not only because she could finally hold him or her, but also because it meant she could go back to work again.
Anita looked up when she heard the front door being opened and closed again. She had no idea that Victor would going to home during the lunch and she wondered why he

Chapter Sixteen; The life of our friends
It was the end of February and it was a sunny day. It even felt like spring at that moment, even though it was officially still winter. But Kyrsten didn't mind it. It was sunny and that meant a busy day for her and her colleagues. It started with the Chef, who was pretty surprised when he noticed that Anita wasn't at Victor's side. And after that, the Imposters arrived. It wasn't a big fight, since the Imposters didn't like the warm day.
"Hello, Kowalski." sounded and Kyrsten Kowalski smiled. Most of her friends still called her 'Kowalski' and sometimes 'Kyrsten', but she knew just one person who called her like that at a teasing tone.
"Hello, Ray." she said as she turned around. "How was your work?"
Ray chuckled and placed an arm around Kowalski. "Pretty much the same as your work." he said as they walked towards the canteen. It was almost noon and it was time to have some lunch.
"Our small talks will be pretty boring w

Chapter Fifteen; The day after
Anita blinked with her eyes. It all felt like a dream to her. The weekend away, the present from Victor; it all felt like a dream. She looked to her hand. Well, he gave her two presents. First the baby room and then the engagement ring. It felt too good to be true, but it was true. She was going to marry the father of her child. The man she truly loved.
"Good morning, dear." sounded next to her and Anita looked to Victor. "Have you slept well?"
"It couldn't be better." whispered Anita and Victor placed his arms around her. "When are we going to tell it to the others?"
"Hm... How about that we are going to tell it to our parents first? I'll pick you up at five, we'll go to my mother's place first and then we'll go to your father to tell the news."
"What about Melissa?"
"She can wait a day or two." Victor looked to Anita. "I'm guessing that you want to be there too when I tell it." Anita nodded. Melissa has always been the one who told Anita that

Chapter Fourteen; Birthday present
It was a cold Friday afternoon when Anita was getting ready to go home. She grabbed her backpack and looked to her computer. All files were complete and there was nothing she had to do for the next week. The only thing she needed to do was to think how she was going to spend her weekend.
"Anita!" sounded and Sonya walked towards her. She finally got her prosthesis, but she decided to stay at the desk for some time longer. "There is something I wanted to give to you." Sonya gave Anita a kiss on her cheek and gave her a present. "Happy birthday, my dear friend."
Anita gave her friend a big smile. It was her birthday today and she wanted to celebrate it with her friends and family. "That's really sweet of you, but I thought you were coming to my birthday party."
Sonya smiled. "I really wish I could be there, but you know that Friday afternoon is the afternoon my prosthesis and I have to exercise. But I know you will have a wonder

Chapter Thirteen; A day out
Anita sighed. She hated Saturdays now. Victor was at work, so she couldn't call him. Her father was somewhere having a meeting, so she couldn't call him either. The rest of her friends were busy too and Melissa was with her family now.
Being pregnant wasn't always great. Most of the times she was alone, because her friends were at work most of the time when she needed them.
Anita looked to her stomach. The baby didn't stop growing just yet and Anita was a little bit afraid that she would be carrying more than one baby. But the doctor assured her that it wasn't the case. There was just one new life growing inside her.
"Just a little bit more than fifteen weeks before Daddy and I can hold you in our arms." Anita chuckled. It was a little bit strange that she was talking to her child, while it wasn't even born yet. But according to the doctor, pregnancy books and the internet, it was the best for her child. Just like listening to some m
