They were seated in the departure lounge, Gate 24. Sandra had her head on his shoulder and both of them were rubbing her belly, silly smiles pasted to their faces, enjoying the intimacy. The announcement pulled them out of their trance, as the final boarding call for their flight was declared. He stood and gently raised her to her feet, walking with his arm protectively around her waist. As they stood in line for their tickets to be verified, the attendant excused herself and walked over to a man behind the main desk, leaving them standing there, unsure of what was going on.

Sandra panicked, then paled, just as they were about to embark on their honeymoon! Luckily her husband had his wits about him, for he responded with the rehearsed, “We are hoping to fall pregnant on our honeymoon.”

If the issue is later confirmed, the airline would pay for their airfares. This was not what they wanted to hear. What would they do now? They had a whole holiday planned out! That is exactly what he told the lady behind the desk, slamming his fist in anger.
