Sunday Scribblings 199: Yes



Sean gripped my hand as we waited for the doctor.  I shivered in the chilly room.  The door swung open and Dr. Walters strolled in.  I tried to read the expression on his face.

"Is it what we thought?" Sean asked, squeezing my hand tighter.

I inhaled.

"Yes," the doctor answered, "you're having a boy."
