" He wants what?" Ollie yelled out as she flopped onto the lounge near me with a groan.
Ollie and Jarrod had been back in the country for a few weeks again after having a quick trip to Asia to the branch office there and finalising the latest contract that was agreed on with the new Asian Pacific Inc. Contractors who were now going to do business with us as a subcontractor.
Rem had known the owner from years ago and knew he was an honourable man. It was just unfortunate that the latest recession hit his business harder than they thought and the whole company nearly folded until rem found out and was quick to see what he could do to help out since he had done work with him once or twice before.
It worked out well for everyone and many jobs were saved. But it was tiring work which necessitated Jarrod hopping on a plane and finishing those last minute details since Rem wouldn't leave me at the moment to do it.
He has been a very attentive and caring husband since he found out we were having another baby. Especially when he found out that we were going to have a grandchild around the same time.
" How are you feeling, Love?" I asked her as I sipped from my cup of tea.
I watched as she wrinkled her nose in distaste before giving a little pout before looking up at me.
" Whoever called it morning sickness should have been shot. I want to vomit at all hours of the day and night. Especially when someone is near me and is or has been drinking coffee. I also would have thought that I would have been over it by now, but noooo. I am not. This kid had better be worth it." She ended up saying in a petulant tone of voice as she then flopped back against the lounge and lifted an arm to cover her eyes. She did look a little tired more than usual.
" You must be glad then that you don't have to go off with Jarrod for any more long-distance trips then." I murmured to her as I sat my cup carefully down on the table in front of me.
" I am." She moaned out with a painful sigh of sorts.
The baby bulge I was 'wearing' was getting quite large these days making it a little difficult to reach out for things. I also noticed that even though there were only weeks between our pregnancies, she only has a small little barely noticeable baby bump showing. But it still makes her act like she is carrying a mountain on the front of her stomach with the way she acts. It is like she exaggerates the bump and the belly ache. The backache and sore boobs and sore feet I know how it feels.
I couldn't help by laugh gently just then when I compared the two of us. This is her first and my third. I can still remember how I felt when I was having her all those years ago.
But I would never have dreamed that I would be finding myself one day being pregnant at the same time my daughter was. It is usually something that doesn't happen every day.
" So, what does dear old dad want again?" Ollie went on to ask after a few moments.
" He went and spoke with Rem. He thought it might be too dangerous to come and see us. It appears that Izzy stole all the letters that I sent to your father. But I already knew that after I asked his parents about them. But Daniel didn't know about them. He has been trying to straighten Izzy out for a few years and, to be honest, I have no idea why they are even together. " I went on to say to her as I too leaned back against the back of the couch to ease my aching back like I usually have been doing.
" There must be something about her that he sees and we don't. I can't think of any reason why. But then, it's none of my business anyway." Ollie was saying as she rested back with her eyes closed. She was resting her hands together on the small mound she was showing off at the moment.
