I signed in and walked into the waiting room.
I jumped and dropped the clipboard, and managed to catch the pen.
There in the waiting room reading a Fit Pregnancy magazine so casually was Tommy.
“Tommy?” I said bending down to pick up the clipboard.
I can’t believe he came. I could feel my heart starting to beat faster and my ear to ear grin that was forming across my face.
“You look a little shocked. I thought I was invited and thought maybe you’d need some company while you wait for the doctor to see you.”
I was filled with mixed emotions. I was scared and happy at the same time. I wish they had a word for it. I really didn’t think he was going to show up. I thought it was a big act he was putting on. What made him meet me here? Did he really want to be a part of my life and the baby’s life?
