10. chapter 10
Thomas had been gone for three months. The only way of communication the army would allow was letters and pictures.
I wrote to Thomas every week about important stuff and even the most random facts. Here is a copy of the last letter that I had written.
I miss you so much. Not a day goes by that I don't think about you. So I have some big news to share this week. I am pregnant! I know, isn't it wonderful? I can already see the bump in my stomach. The doctors say that the baby will be healthy. Just a few more weeks and then they will be able to tell what gender it will be. I'm hoping for a boy. I want a boy and then a girl so that the boy can beat up any boyfriend the girl has. I know that's weird but... Yeah. What do you hope the baby will be? If the baby's a boy then I would love him to have the name James and if a girl then either Cosette or Evangeline. What are your top names? Wow Thomas you're a father! You're a daddy! I want you to know that I love you very much and I will keep you in my heart forever.
I put down the pen and lovingly tucked the letter inside an envelope. Then I pressed a stamp on the front and stuck it in the mailbox.
I checked it for any letters from Thomas but there were none. I haven't gotten any letters for at least a month. I was starting to worry but I figured that he was probably just to busy saving America for little old me.
My phone alarm went off informing me that it was time to leave for work. I slipped on my black pencil skirt, my white sleeveless blouse, and my black high heels.
I grabbed my briefcase, jumped into my car, and drove off to work.
