"Mommy can you help me zip up my dress I got it stuck?" Sapphire walked in holding her dress out and pouting. "Did you get it caught on your dress again?"

"I don't know, it just won't zip up."

"Come here and let me look." She came to where I was but I couldn't bend down to look at the dress since I was now five months pregnant. "Okay hop up on the bed so I can look at you." She climbed on the bed and turned so I could see her dress. I struggled with her dress until I gave up myself. "Okay lady bug you are going to have to find another dress to wear until I can fix your zipper."

"But I wanted to wear this one!"

"I know that and you look adorable but until I can fix it, Imma need you to find another dress. So will you please go find another dress for mommy?"

"Thank you." I kissed her cheek. "Mommy are you going to pick me up today?"

"Of course I am and we're going to come home and make some brownies."

"Yay!" she jumped off the bed and ran back to her room. I found something to wear to work. I picked out a black short sleeved dress that stopped mid-way of my legs and had V cut in the front. I added a long silver necklace and black flats since I couldn't wear heels anymore. I put my hair in tight bun on the top of my head. I quickly did my makeup and then went to fins Sapphire.

"Lady bug are you dressed yet?!" she appeared at the bottom of the stairs eating something. "What are you eating?"

"A pop tart." I shook my head and headed for the door. "Let's go before we're late."

I couldn't wait until tonight since Cordell said he would be home tonight. I was so excited because I missed him so much. I also missed his foot rubs. I just really missed him and couldn't wait until he got home.

When I got to work I instantly got nervous since today would be the day I find out if I made partner or not. I was nervous I didn't know what to do. I had worked so hard for this and if I didn't make it, I would be completely torn. I walked into my office to be greeted by Denise. "What are you doing in here?"

"Mr. Richards told me to tell you he wants you in his office when you get in." I sighed. "I don't think I can take this stress." I put my things down on my desk and then leaned against it. "Girl if you don't quit being dramatic, you know you got this in the bag."

"How do you know that?"

"Because I have seen you work your ass off for these people and they would be complete idiots to not give you that promotion. They know you deserve to be partner and if they don't then you need to consider taking your talents somewhere else."

"I don't want to go anywhere else."

"I'm just saying if they don't recognize your talents and all the hard work you have put in then maybe this isn't the job for you. But that doesn't mean I don't think you're not going to get the promotion just giving you options to think about."

"What happens to you if I leave?"

"Girl please I know soon as you find a job, yo ass gonna call me and tell me to come on over." I laughed. "Now get yo ass in that office so we can find out if we movin on up." She slapped me on my ass and pushed me out the door.

I slowly walked to Mr. Richards's office so I could get myself together. I was trying to talk myself up and tell myself that everything was going to be okay. I knocked on the door and waited for him to tell me to come in. When I did I found another man and two women looking at me like they had been waiting for me. "Ah Ms. Marshall glad you finally showed up."
