Chapter Twenty Two

It’s a gorgeous day, so Brooklyn and I are spending the afternoon by the pool, sipping sweet tea as we scan through the gossip magazines on our Kindle’s. I can’t help but laugh at the garbage. They’ve been printing story after story of Kayden and me ever since our wedding. The People Magazine spread published this week is featuring our wedding; it’s surreal seeing us on the cover in our wedding attire on the beach in Galveston.

Normally, I dread reading an article about us, but this is one I could read over and over. The pictures inside are breathtaking, they even featured some pictures from the reception. I literally burst out laughing at a picture in the bottom of the article of us all dancing to Luke Bryan.

The only downfall is now every magazine in the world is on baby watch! The other day they snapped a picture of Brooklyn and me walking out of a restaurant in Sugar Land. I had my hand over my stomach telling her I was full…They captioned it: ‘Savannah gushing about her pregnancy with her best friend Brooklyn Bennett.’

It’s been four weeks since we came home from Italy and I’m driving myself crazy as I wait to start my period…or not. I had it just before our wedding and was supposed to start yesterday, but nothing. I’m afraid to get my hopes up because my doctor said my cycle may be a little off as it adjusts to not taking my birth control.

Kayden’s been away the last three days in Hong Kong for business, so I’m not sure if I should take a test before he gets home or wait for him. If I do it before his return and its negative, only one of us will be disappointed. I’ll think about it later.

Sipping my tea, I about choke as I flip to a page talking about fall premiers in October; there’s a review for Celebrity Rehab with the world’s biggest douchebag: Logan. “Oh my God. They only gave this season two stars.” I laugh, as I show Brooklyn the review. “I still cannot believe he went on that show for sex addiction; what a joke. I’m glad he’s Giselle’s problem now.”

Brooklyn sits up, and leans over towards my lounge chair and reads the review, “That’s fuckin’ hilarious! Don’t even get me started. That bitch is lucky I didn’t ruin her perfect little plastic nose that night in the club. Those two are a train wreck just waiting to happen.”

We spend the next hour tanning and gossiping about all the juicy stuff that’s been happening on the set of As the Days Go By. Brooklyn just renewed with the production company extending her contract to February. Her character has had a really great storyline, and there’s talk that she could get nominated for a Daytime Emmy!

Finally giving into our grumbling stomachs, we head into the house to find something for lunch. Before I reach the kitchen, I have to stop for a moment because I’m suddenly hit with a dizzy spell. Everything goes black as I see lights floating around like lightning bugs. I brace my hand on the wall as I try to steady myself.

“Hey, you okay?” Brooklyn asks with concern in her voice as she grabs my arm.

Blinking a few times the spell passes, “Yeah, I think I was in the sun too long, I just need some water. That sweet tea must’ve dehydrated me.”

Walking into the kitchen beside me, Brooklyn quickly grabs me a glass of water, “Here drink this, it sounds like heat exhaustion. I guess we should’ve stayed in the shade; we were in the sun for long time.”

Sitting down at the island, I sip the water. “Thanks; the air conditioning is just what I needed, I’m feeling better already.” I tell her, as I take another sip of water.

“You sit, and I’ll make our lunch. What do you feel like?” She asks, as she walks over to the fridge.

I know we have a ton of leftovers because Frederick insists on making huge meals all the time. Kayden and I try to cook, but Frederick enjoys cooking for us, so we mainly do our own cooking on the weekends while he’s off.

“How about we warm-up left over pizza from last night? Just pop it in the oven for a few minutes.” Brooklyn pulls the pizza box out of the fridge, preheats the oven, and pulls out the leftover Chef Salad I made for us yesterday.

With Kayden gone on business, she’s been here the last few days keeping me company while Dixon is busy running Beaumont Industries. I finished my work the first night he was gone due to boredom, so it’s been nice having her here.

Two bites into my salad, my stomach starts churning. Just the smell of the dressing is making me nauseous. I’ve been feeling sick all week, but I think it is the residual effect of the stress I went through with the trial. I’m afraid to think it could be morning, afternoon, and evening sickness, because I don’t want to get my hopes up.

“Are you sick? You’ve barely eaten the last three days?” Resting her elbow on the island and her chin in her hand she peers at me, roaming her eyes across my face. All of a sudden her eyes get huge, “Oh. My. God! Are you pregnant!?”

Stunned, I stammer as her question soaks in, “Ummm…I don’t know?”

Brooklyn slaps her palm on the granite counter top and yells at me, “What do you mean you don’t know!?”

Giggling because that’s the first thing I always do when I’m nervous, I nibble on the inside of my lip. “My period is late.” Holding my hand up I stop the Brooklyn freak out, “But! It’s possible that it’s late because I just got off my birth control or it could be the stress from the trial, so I don’t want to get my hopes up.”

Jumping down off of the bar stool, Brooklyn grabs my hand and yanks me to my feet, “Dizzy spell because of the heat…nausea…irritability…”

I raise my eye brow at her and rest my hands on my hips, “Excuse me? Irritable?”

Brooklyn rolls her eyes at me, laughing she says, “You’ve been a little more bitchy than usual, I just blamed it on you missing Kayden and his Texas size-cock the last few days…but now it all makes sense. You are sooo knocked up! You two must’ve been going at it like fuckin’ jack rabbits in Italy!”

Shaking my head, I start pacing back and forth in front of her. What if I am pregnant? This is freakin’ crazy! It means my wish in Italy really came true. Holy fuck. Am I really ready for this? Is Kayden really ready for this!? Oh my God I’m freaking out, and I don’t even know if I am pregnant yet!

“Savannah! Take a deep breath girl. You look like you’re on the verge of a major melt down.” I can hear the amusement in her voice, she’s enjoying every minute of this.
