“Kiara, what would you think about a baby shower?”
“Who else is pregnant?” “Yeah, I know.” She laughed. “I think it would be nice. My mom, my brother… some of my old friends.”
“Was the girl he cheated on you with your friend?”
“Yes. But she didn’t know about it.”
“I was just wondering. Sorry for bringing it up.”
“No. It’s fine. He was a loser.”
There were so many people in the house. It was actually really fun, and I know Kiara’s mom was really happy about it.
After everyone left, I blew out my last set of candles. So many things have happened that led me to this point, to be standing here right now.
It showed me how much time had really gone by. How had this happened? I was an elder, with a toddler and two kids. I still wished I’d met Derek earlier.
“Hey, thanks for the baby shower, Selena. It was really fun.”
“You’re welcome. It wasn’t a big deal.”
“I went to see the house earlier.”
“Yeah. I put in an offer.”
“That’s really good! I promise I’ll be over. Where is it?”
