Joe and Allyn talked, and both knew the time had come to end their relationship. They had both found love, and it was time to move on. Allyn and Neil stood outside the door to the home she and Joe had shared, Neil there in support of the woman he loved. Allyn was nervous, even though they had ended their relationship on a friendly note, and she needed Neil there for her.
Neil assured Allyn that she could go in, just get her few things, and be done with it, and ready to move on to her life with him.
Allyn had taken her things and left, without a word to either Joe or Samantha. She had already said her goodbyes with Joe. And what did she need to speak to Samantha about? Joe was the only thing they had in common, and Allyn had nothing more than a fading fondness for the man.
Joe wasted no time asking Samantha to move in, and she accepted happily. (She brought in over §10,000 plus a well-stocked inventory. She also brought a lot of friends and was already at the top of her career - Hall of Famer. Jackpot!)
Encouraged, Joe dropped to his knee and asked Samantha to marry him. He had a whole little speech about it being so soon after Allyn had moved out, and so soon after they had met, but he truly felt he had found his soulmate in her, wanting to spend the rest of his life with her, yada yada yada. Samantha found it all very romantic...
and responded with a resounding YES!
It wasn't long before Samantha noticed that she was hungry all.the.time.! She couldn't figure out what was going on.
Every chance they got to be together, this couple was dancing, hugging, talking, playing, you name it.
One winter afternoon, Joe came home from work, shouting with glee!
Not only did he make the right choice regarding a fantastic opportunity, it gave him a fantastic bonus!
And the very next afternoon, Joe had another surprise coming!
Samantha had been finding herself more and more tired all the time, especially as they worked to get some paint and wallpaper on their walls, with the bonus Joe had brought home. Joe offered to make breakfast.
They didn't have a dining room table, but they could sit together on the couch, eating pancakes and talking about anything and everything.
That morning over breakfast, Samantha told Joe, a little hesitantly, that she suspected she was pregnant. She was unsure what his reaction would be, as they weren't yet married, and was so happy to find out that he was thrilled.
Her pregnancy progressed without comment. Never any morning sickness, her energy levels were good, and she hardly had any back pain. Before she knew it, she was in her third trimester.
And now, a funny glitch for your amusement. Joe had stepped over next to the bass while Samantha was playing, and she stepped out into the exact same spot. Is there any question of whether these two will become one? *giggles*
