Thanks for reading and commenting on the fist chapter of my story! I hope you enjoy this one as well. Please leave comments about what you like and dislike. Also Sorry its taken me so long to post the second part! I have been very busy and I'm not really sure way to write for this part. Oh and sorry its so short! Thanks and enjoy. :) I couldn't believe what the officer just told me. I kept repeating it in my head over and over again.
Officer: "Sorry to tell you this over phone mam but your fiance, James, was killed from a work accident. Sorry. We will be sending an officer over to give you more details."
When he said that my first thought was what is going to happen to my daughter and unborn baby? I was now a single mom with low income. All I could do was cry.
I decided to move, the memories at the house and the town we lived in were to hard to cope with. I moved my family to Sunset Valley where I grew up, I bought a small house and we basically had started over. I remember growing up here and always having so much fun! I hoped that my children would also have a great time growing up here. Soon after the move I knew I needed to start looking for a job so I could support my family. I quickly found a great job at the near by school. And even though I was pregnant they still gave me the job because the year was almost over and I could start working the coming up school year. The only problem was that I didn't have any money coming into the household until September and it was May. I decided to take up another part time job working at the grocery store until school stated. Before I knew it my baby was ready to meet me and her loving big sister! I was really scared though because I only knew a few people in town and didn't know who could bring me or who would watch my daughter. 3 days later I went home with the new addition to my family, Laura Marie. My neighbor was watching Ella while I was in the hospital. I was so happy to be home with both my daughters. But being a single was to two little girls was harder than I expected. When Laura was 6 months old we had a good schedule: I would wake up at 5:30 to feed Laura and then once Ella woke up I would place her in her highchair and give her some cheerios. Then at 6:45 the nanny would come and I would be off to work; sometimes I would stop at the local coffee shop with a friend before work. The nanny would play with the girls feed them and sometimes bring them to the park or to my school to visit me at work. Then at 3:00 I would head home to play with my little beauty's. Before I knew it, it was Laura's first birthday! She was growing up so fast I couldn't believe it. And in a few months Ella would be turning 6 years old. She will going to kindergarten learning her abcs and 123s. Every couple weeks I would go back to the place my fiances was buried at. I go by myself for now but when the girls are older and can understand what happened to their father I will bring them with. But for now we are taking one day at a time.

Awww, that was unexpected. \:\(  And that's got to be really tough, for a brand-new mom to have to deal with two babies and a new job.  Hopefully she makes some friends soon--not necessarily a new love interest--so that she's not so lonely.

Such a sad part, like spladoum said, she needs friends!
