17. chapter 17
I had gotten a surprise leave because of Kirsten being pregnant. I was so happy.
I decided to surprise her when she got home from work. I could already picture what was going to happen:
She would walk in the front door and I would be hiding in the kitchen.
Then she would walk into the bedroom and I follow her and engulf her into a giant bear hug.
She would scream and spin around and then she would see me. We would hug and kiss and then I would explain everything. Then we would kiss again and spend every second together for the next three months.
But that wasn't what happened.
When I heard her car pull up to the curb I ran and hid behind the counter.
I sat there waiting for her to walk in the door for what seemed like eternity. She had probably gotten a ride home from a friend or something.
I snuck over to the window a inched back one of the curtains. I peeked out the window that had a perfect view of the front porch.
I saw Kirsten. And I saw another guy with her. They were just talking. But then it happened. The man kissed my wife! And she was kissing him back! I ran to the door and threw it open. They jumped back from each other with wide eyes. Then Kirsten looked at me and whispered, "Thomas?".
