Honey Please Love Someone Else Book 1 Chapter 113
Winter is almost over. The trees have started to grow new leaves. Nature is getting dressed again. The new year kick started with such a positive vibe. Luke married Regina which was totally unexpected. They're still enjoying their honeymoon probably.
Stella joined her dad's company. She's been doing a great job handling the office. Surprisingly my father-in-law is there too help her in every step.
It was not necessary since Stella has experience. But Mr. Carlton enjoyed spending more time with his daughter.
Their broken relationship is finally mended by the time and efforts.
Both us became busy with our own work. Although the good part is, we were looking forward to seeing each other at dinner table, every single night. After having a strenuous day, the wholesome meal will help us to cleanse our weary bodies.
Just when I thought that this year couldn't get any better, spring brought a good news for me.
The first marriage anniversary is something people eagerly wait for to celebrate. I still had time to think about it, probably one month and half. The question was, should I make it extravagant or normal. It was indeed a silly confusion.
Around that time, I had to leave for a business trip. It's been a long time since I stayed apart from my wife. I usually return home within a day or two.
But this time I had to stay here for a week. On the other hand Stella's busy just like me. I can't disturb her during the work hour.
Finally the trip was over. I was dying to see my wife after spending those sleepless nights. On my way home I grabbed her favourite food.
I mean, it's my wife we are talking about. She would be more delighted to see these fried chicken instead of a bouquet of flowers.
" Honey I'm home!" I ran toward her and wrapped my arms around her slender body. It feels so good to have her trapped into my embrace. I handed her the packet.
" I missed you." Placing a soft kiss on my lips, she muttered into my ears.
" Here I got your favourite stuffs. Eat, before it gets cold." She took out a piece of chicken inside the bag and bites a big mouthful. Her cheeks are puffed up as her mouth was full.
" mmmhh... this is good." She was enjoying the juicy chicken until her complexion changed. She handed me the bag and ran towards the bathroom.
Oh god! Not again. Another food poisoning. It happened frequently when she eats outside without even paying attention to her health.
I try to prevent her from eating unhealthy food as much I can. Thanks to my fixed diet and health eating habits, I never had any food poisoning.
Stella returns from the bathroom. Water is dripping from her face. Now the question is, should I give her a scolding or show her pity? I guess, my absence made her go wild.
" You okay?" I asked her in a gentle manner.
" Yeah." Her eyelids drooped.
" Stella, how many time I warned you? Stop eating unhealthy food. It'll ruin your digestive system. I think, I have been looking over this issue but today I'll give you a serious lecture." I was worried and mad at the same time. Her skin looks pale. Maybe I should call the doctor.
" It's not food poisoning." Her answer only made me anxious. Lots of thoughts pilled up into my head.
" Oh my god! Are you stressing over your work?" I literally shouted out. The terror overtook my face.
" God! No you dummy." To my surprise, Stella begins to laugh. I was puzzled. She took my hand and pressed it on her stomach. Suddenly my throat became dry. This small gesture made me speechless.
" For real?" That was all I could manage to say. My jaw dropped.
" Yes." All the happiness of the world gathers around my feet. I begun to scream excitedly. I don't know how to react. I'm beyond happy.
I picked my wife up like a little doll, twirling around together with joy.
" Put me down already." She laughs while keeping her eyes on me. I can see her dilated pupils. My head was spinning so I had to put her down.
" When did you find out?" Touching the base of the neck, I asked her.
" Three days ago." It's totally unbelievable that all this happened in my absence. Why didn't she told me about it. I would have fled back home instantly.
" Why didn't you-" She stopped me from proceeding further.
" I was not sure. I thought it's best to confirm it first. The reports came today. I'm two weeks pregnant." Well she is right in this case. I lowered my head towards her tummy and pressed my ear. Of course I can't feel or hear the baby but it's so strange that a little life is growing inside that tiny place.
" I'm so happy. So happy. I still can't believe it. This feels like a dream."
" We are gonna be mom and dad." I was delighted yet there were other thoughts causing me distress. It's not even a year since we got married.
On the other hand Stella gets anxious about the childbirth issue.
Lastly she just joined the company. Her career only started. All these obstacles still she is determined.
Or is she doing this for my sake?
" But are you sure? It's not long since you joined work. And your fear..." Stella didn't let me finish.
" I can do it as long you are with me. Trust me Theo. I took my time to think about it. It's true that I was afraid to have a child but things changed. Beside we are also getting old. I don't want my kids to call me granma."
" Oh come on! You don't look same as your age." I tried to correct her statement by whining about it. She look way younger and prettier than me.
" I'm happy with my decision. I won't change it." Her eyes sparked with determination. The smile she had on her face it was glowing like a bright star.
" So, a mom huh? Think you can pull that up?" Taking a deep breath, I let out a chuckle.
" Absolutely." She replied.
It was the beginning of our parenthood. The upcoming months are gonna be tough especially for Stella. So, as her husband I need to make sure that my wife is always cheerful.

So guys I kinda messed up with timeline. I went back to the previous chapters & after doing a rough calculation, I had these results.
Theo and Stella got married around June 19 - 28. Since I hadn't mentioned the month or dates I will keep it that way. Stella found out about her pregnancy around last weeks of April so the kid is coming in January. That's it folks. I'm sorry for ignoring those vitals info's.
