Two minutes later we arrive at my house. "Told you I could make it"
"You proved me wrong" he chuckles walking up to my door opening it for me. He nods and smiles at me. He changed position to where his foot was holding the door open and his hands were in his pocket with his thumbs hanging out. "Hey is your grandma here yet?"
"Ua" I pause looking in our garage for her car. "Yep she is I can't believe I missed her coming in" I say quickly before rushing into my house. "Grandma! I'm home"
"Sweetie" she says arms open giving me a great big hug. I breathe in her comforting scent of baby power and floral scent that I've grow to know so well.
"Look at this handsome young man" my grandma walks over to Carson pinching his cheek
"Thanks Ms." He says turning red.
"Please call me grandma" she lightly taps his cheek and smiles a few more wrinkles appears on her already wrinkled face. She turns away and starts walking towards the couch.
"Yes mam" Carson salutes. "Wait! I meant grandma" he says panicky. I roll my eyes and follow my grandma to the living room.
"What's all this?" I motion to the mountains of baby stuff.
"Well you see I didn't know it was a boy or girl so I got stuff for both and-" she rambles on describing each item individually.
"That sounds great grandma but we are going to go upstairs-" I say putting my hand on Carson's chest pushing him towards the stairs. "We are going to go watch Modern Family and we will be down soon to help make dinner"
I walk past Carson and he is still standing their clueless smiling at my grandma. I walk back to him and grab him by his tie dragging him along.
"Ok! Ow, ow, ow" he says taking my hand of his tie. "Wattya trying to do coke me?" he smiles loosing his tie around his neck.
I plop down on my bed opening up my computer loading Hulu."Why are you even wearing that thing anyway?" I ask without looking up.
"Gotta dress to impress" I glance up from my computer giving him a weird look. "Kidding. I had a presentation today. I had to dress up for a presentation today he says sitting down next to me. unbuttoning the top button of his shirt.
"What episode do you want to watch?" I look at him a few short strands of hair hang in front of his face.
"Doesn't matter" I put on a random episode and we sit back and relax and have a mini- marathon. After we watch about ten episodes we head down stairs to make something to eat. I grab some uncooked pasta and an assortment of cheese.
"What you don't Kraft?" he mumbles.
"Nope! We make it fresh around here." I jabber starting to boil the water for the pasta. Once the water is boiling I add the pasta. Once the pasta in in the pot I grab the olive oil and add some to the pot as well.
"Why are you doing that?" he asks giving me a strange look.
"It keeps the pasta from sticking together" I answer stirring the noodles.
"When did you become so smart?" He asks.
I stir till I think its off the bottom of the pot.
"I was always smart. My grandma taught me how to cook," I say.
Ouch! I put a hand on my stomach, and I feel it. The kick of a pro soccer player. The baby- did I just call it a baby? It's not a baby. Its a it. Something that I will not get attached too, because I need my teenage life.
"Are you okay?" He asks as he comes closer to my side.
"He kicked," I say, not realizing I had been staring down at him.
When did it become a him? What's if its a girl and I'm calling it a boy? It will be so mad, but he won't know because it won't be able to tell me. I'll be far away from him... He's just.. It's just.. No he. It has to be a boy. I feel it in my gut, and if it is.. Do I keep him? Would it be fate that I felt it? No.. It's my hormones messing with me. I don't want to keep it.. No way.
"What are you thinking about?" Carson asks, the spoon is released from my grip. He starts stirring, as my other free hand goes down to him.
"I have to keep him."
"How are you sure its a boy?" Carson asks.
He must of known that I would make this choice last minute, and that's why he didn't flip out. I'm right, I have to keep him. Well first, I need to know if its a boy or girl, or do I want it to be a surprised? Surprise. Yes.
"I feel it in my gut." He nods slowly staring at me. "What?" I groan.
"Nothing" he clears his throat and looks at the pasta watching it cook "It's just that I have a gut feeling too and I think it's a girl."
I smack him " I'm being serious!"
"OK, OK what if we are both right? What if you're having both?"
"OH MY GOSH WHAT IF I'M HAVING TWINS!"
"Let Dr. Carson take a look" he places his hand on my tiny bump and pretends to analyze it. "It seams that there is only one baby in there"
"My hero" I mumble starting the cheese sauce. He gives me his signature wink as he starts to drain the pasta for me. I add the noodles to the cheese sauce and Carson stirs it up for me as I grab three bowls.
"The supper you guys made smells delicious!" she grins grabbing a spoon and giving herself a helping of it.
"Thanks grams!" We take our bowls to the living room and sit on the floor in front of the coffee table which is now cleared off of all the baby products and on the table now sits The Game of Life.
"I call the blue car!" Carson shouts swiping the plastic car. I roll my eyes grabbing the yellow one and my grandma settles for the red one. We spin the wheel to see who goes first. I spin a four, my grandma spins a six and Carson spins an eight. "BOOM! I get to go first! Suck -"
"Carson!" I give him a glare.
"Right" he mumbles choosing to start at the Career spot. I choose college as well as my grandma. Once the game got going and we picked our salaries, careers and got married we made some popcorn for the rest of the board game.
I spin the spinner and I land on a six. I move my yellow car six places and I land on HAVING TWINS. I pick up a plastic pink girl and a plastic blue boy and put the in the back of my car and I pick of a life tile. The game drones on. What if this is a sign that I'm having twins?
