I had stopped working as I entered my ninth month. It was early afternoon on a Tuesday that I went into labour. I called Brad got myself to the hospital. As I reached I rang Gabi, left a message on her phone.
In a few hours I delivered a perfect little boy. Brad was ecstatic.
When we brought little Henry home, Gabi was so angry and jealous we knew she could not be left alone with him. I thought of sending her permanently to her father when Daniel texted.
He had married!
All sorts of events bounced through my mind; from Daniel’s new wife refusing to let Gabi spend the summer to even taking her for weekends!
I was a complete mess.
I went to tell Gabi, but she had also gotten Daniel’s text, and was very upset about it. I didn’t know what to say and backed out.
I went to the nursery and realised the baby would have to sleep in our room when Gabi was there. And if Daniel’s wife had the brains of a snail she would make sure Gabi stayed here.
