*Luke* "Even if I did you still gotta wait..."
*Laura* "I thought you said we weren't going to buy each other other anything this year since we closed on that new place?"
*Luke shrugs his shoulders* "Patience Babe, patience....."
Luke turns the volume back up on the TV and Laura cuddles up against him again.
*Luke* "About damn time.....you gets some beers. I'll get the door."
*Laura feeling a little uncomfortable* "Ummm....Thank you...."
*Luke* "Mom!.... enough already. Laura is not pregnant."
*Cyndi* "Oh! Honey that odds are stacked against you more than you realize.....Didn't you already get some girl pregnant?"
Luke is starting to loose his cool with his Mother she never brings out the best in him. This is why he chose to live so far away from her. She always talked to him like he was just some friend and rarely ever made him feel like she was his Mother.
*Luke takes a deep breath* "Mom....now is not the time for that. Please keep those thoughts to yourself right now."
*Cyndi* "Okay....okay...I shouldn't have said that."
*Luke kneels down in front of Laura* "Babe? Are you sure about this? We're always careful."
*Luaura* "Luke! Please calm down....it's not your Mother's fault."
*Cyndi is used to Luke being frustrated with her* "I'm sorry Honey. I just wanted to surprise you two for Christmas..... if you want to know for sure take a pregnancy test. Do keep one just in case?"
*Luke shrugs his shoulders* "Yeah you would think but no.... not really. I just didn't go home anymore after that."
*Laura* "So...your not mad about this?"
*Luke* "No! no, never Babe! I could never be mad at you. If anyone should be upset it should be you. I was the one who insisted on that night and look where it got us..."
*Laura gasps and realizes* "......Oh! god! I am going to have to tell my parents...My Mom, she is going to freak out!"
*Luke* "Stop worrying .....we will deal with all that tomorrow. It's late and right now all I can think about is taking you to bed."
*Laura* "We just found out I'm pregnant. Really? Right now?"
*Luke kisses her* "I can't help it, Babe. Besides, I only got about 9 months left before you start hating me for getting you pregnant and telling me..." *tries to imitate her voice* "No more sex for you Mister!"
*Laura lets out a laugh* "Ha! I don't sound anything like that. Besides, I can never tell you no. You know that...."
*Luke kisses her agian* "Mmmmm..I'll remember that...*getting fresh with her* "now get your sweet little ass up stairs and into bed."
Laura turns to head up the stairs and Luke slaps her on her bottom.
*Laura in playful tone* "Hey!! Behave yourself..........Mister!"
*Luke smiles at her and laughs* "Mister huh?.....Oh,... now your really gonna get it..."
Luke dashes up the stairs behind her. Laura giggles and runs the rest of the way up the stairs.
All in all they seem to be handling this news very well.....for the moment. Luke still has to deal with the fact that his Mom has packed up and moved down to be close to him. Laura will have to face telling her Parents that she is pregnant. All this happens right on the heels of her Mom asking why they haven't got married or engaged yet. It seems that life is taking measures into it's own hands and giving these two quite a few surprises. Let's hope they can handle all of it.
To be continued.....
