Chase was over-the-moon excited about it, of course.
Yvonne only hesitated a moment. "Of course I am, sugar," she said unconvincingly.
"Felix! Sugar!" she called out when she saw Felix headed towards her. She couldn't wait to tell him her good news, already picturing his strong arms...
Yvonne's smile fell flat. "What's the matter?" she asked with concern. "What's happened?" Felix looked livid with her...
"Felix..." Yvonne said with a shaky voice, "What are you talking about?"
Felix raised an eyebrow and looked pointedly at her burgeoning belly. "I think that's completely apparent."
Yvonne turned on her heel and stalked off to her car so she missed the expression on Felix's face...
Yvonne was still livid when she got home. She flung her keys on the counter and stormed around the house, muttering under her breath about what a jackass Felix had turned out to be! To insinuate that she had gotten her promotions by any means other than hard work and determination was... it was just so... UGH!
She angrily wiped the tears that began filling her eyes. She would absolutely not cry over him!
Damn pregnancy hormones!
So of course Eva crawled up right to Yvonne's feet and started crying, "Dada! Dada!"
"Stop it! Stop crying!" Yvonne shouted, which only made Eva cry louder. By this time, Yvonne was about ready to join her. Why couldn't anything go right?
"Where WERE you?" she demanded. "I called and you didn't answer! I needed you!"
Chase caught himself rolling his eyes. "Calm down, Yvonne! It's nothing to get worked up about. I stayed late to get some extra practice for our performance. Just go to bed, I'll take care of Eva." He shook his head sadly. "But how do you expect to handle Eva and the newborn if you can't even handle Eva alone for 30 minutes?!" He started to walk away.
Chase scowled. "Stop it, Yvonne! Stop!" he said loudly, interrupting her tirade. "Don't ever say anything like that in front of Eva again!" Chase couldn't believe how self-centered Yvonne was being!
"She's beautiful, isn't she?" Chase asked softly with a huge grin.
Yvonne scowled at him nastily and walked off without him.
