Brianna shrieked as she stood in the bathroom, looking at the home
pregnancy test which had just revealed its results. Extremely happy, she turned to hug Natalie, Aaron's girlfriend.
"Oh my God, I'm so happy for you!!" Natalie exclaimed, looking over Brianna's shoulder to make sure the results were positive.
As they let go, they walked into the adjoining bedroom
"I can't believe it! We haven't really been trying for long." Brianna said as she sat down on the divan at the end of the
"Some people try for a long time, Brie! You're lucky." Natalie said, sitting down next to her and putting her
arm around Brianna's shoulders.
"I know, Nat," she put her hands on her stomach, "I just can't believe it happened
so soon! I'm gonna be a mom!"
"You have to call Nick. Hes gonna flip out!" Natalie exclaimed, going over to
the nightstand and grabbing the cordless phone from its cradle, then handing it to Brianna. She dialed her husband's cellphone
number and put the phone to her ear. She got up from the divan and walked out onto the balcony that overlooked the backyard,
and the beach behind it.
"Hey baby..." Brianna trailed off as Nick answered his phone.
"Hey," he said, getting up from his chair at the mixing board and walking over by the door, "We're almost done here, then
me and Aaron are gonna come back to the house and we'll all go out to dinner."
"Okay," she replied, putting her finger
to her lips for a moment to silence Natalie, "But listen, I want you to do something for me."
we need groceries or something?"
"No, Nick, I want you to record a song for me."
"I've written songs about
you before, Brie."
"No, this is a different kind of song."
"What kind of song?"
"A lullaby. I'm pregnant."
"A- you're what?" Nick said in utter disbelief.
"You heard me, I'm pregnant. You're gonna be a daddy."
am? Really? You're sure?"
"Yes, I'm sure."
"Oh my God, baby, I'll be right home. The guys can finish without
me. I love you so much!"
"I love you too." Brianna said with a laugh.
"I'll see you in a few!" he replied,
"Yes!" she heard him shout before the phone hung up.
"Jeez, I heard him from here!" Natalie laughed.
was that about?" Kevin asked Nick.
"I gotta go, you can finish without me, right?" Nick asked while putting on his
jacket, a huge smile on his face.
"If we have to. Whats going on? Is everything okay?" Alex questioned. The other
all looked at Nick as if he'd gone insane.
"Better than that. Brie's pregnant. We're gonna be parents!" he announced.
Brian jumped up from his chair and hugged Nick.
"Congrats!" he said, letting go. The others all got up to congratulate
"I told Brie that I'd be right home, I've gotta go!" Nick said. He ran out the door as fast as he could, with
Aaron only seconds behind him.
Howie laughed as he walked over and closed to door. "I hope Aaron catches him before
he ends up walking."
"Brie!" Nick exclaimed once safely inside the house, lifting her up and spinning
"Baby, be careful!" she called as he set her down and kissed her.
"Right, sorry. I'm just so happy!"
"I told you he'd flip out!" Natalie said. She hugged Nick tightly. "Congrats! You're gonna be a dad!"
Maybe you'll be an aunt..." Nick said, smiling at his brother.
"Maybe she will..." Aaron replied, winking back. He
stood behind Natalie and wrapped his arms around her waist.
"So, where do you wanna go for dinner? Tonight's your
night, baby." Nick asked, his arms around her shoulders as he rubbed her arm.
