[chapter 2]
Mike spends in his job 14 hours per day and that's why Melody is so often alone at home. But she never get bored-she always has so much to do. Now she is doing some exercises (of course not heavy, she is still pregnant) to stay fit and healthy. [Later that evening]
Melody saw that Mike was confused and hiding something from her. But soon she will know about what he was thinking.
- We need to talk... I didn't want you to grieved for anything during pregnancy, but things are getting worse everyday.
- What are you talking about?
- Our credit and our new house... we don't have enough money to buy that house.
- I don't understand. I thought that we have? What happend?
- Don't worry, we need a little more money, but...
- Yes? Tell me.
- It seems that we need to sell our furniture.
- Honey, please-don't kidding. We were together in bank and they said that it will be enough. If we sell them... we won't have anything, only empty walls and floors. Were we will sleep and the most important thing-where our child will sleep? I can't let you do this.
- I already talked with our mom... - Mike started.
- My mom? Why didn't you talk with me first?
- I told you before. But let me finish: I talked to her and she will rent us her old furniture...
- Great.
- But Melody...
- I thought that we trust each other... And you talked to my mother beside my back. Please, let me go... - she said and leave him alone at dinner.
Melody was lying on bed and thinking about what Mike told to her. "Why he didn't tell me that things are getting worse? Why he was trying to hide everything from me? Didn't he know that one day I will find out about everything? We can't sell everything. All this idea about new house was wrong... we should do it. We have enough space for one baby..." But suddenly somebody interrupted her. It was Mike. - Melody, please... can we stay calm and talk like adult people?
- I am calm, Mike... but think about it: if we do like you suggested we stay with nothing. Even when the most expensive house is empty, nobody can live there.
- But your mom will help us. Oh I see...
- What you see?
- You don't want to owe anything to your mother.
- It's not like that...
- So what really do you mean?
- Well... O.K. We will rent some things from my mum and sell our.
- Thank you. You are absolute the greatest wife in whole world!
- No, I'm not. I just don't want to fight. I love you and I need to support you.
[Three months later]
It's only few days to the end of Melody's pregnancy. She and her husband are very excited. plus today is the big day: the are finally moving out to settle in their new house.
Mike woke up - Honey, why are you still looking in the mirror? Are you searching for an answer who is the prettier wife in whole world?
- Maybe - said Melody with flirty voice.
- You know who is... you are! And now come to your handsome husband and give him a big kiss for good morning!
- Oh, you are incredible Mike - she laughted.
It was late afternoon and Melody was alone. Mike got a day off in work, because he wanted to prepare everything. It was hot day, so Melody had a nap. Like a little girl, she was dreaming about their house and baby... But telephone disturbed her. "Who might it be?" - she asked herself. - Yes, at the phone. What? How could it... - We lost our house?! melody called her mom. She was so frightened what will happend to them now.
- Oh mom... I don't know what to do... I don't know where's Mike... and I'm so scared!
- Shhh darling.
They sat in the livingroom.
- And now tell me everything... because I don't understand how it could happend?
- An hour ago somebody from bank called and told me that Mike's director fired him and now we can't afford for the credit that we took and we need to pay it back. But we already bought that new house... and we don't have any money. We also found somebody who will buy our furniture... and we have a mortgage in that bank, so... they told me... in our contract state that if we can't pay this credit back...
-... we lost... EVERYTHING... Our old house... and our new house... - What?! How could it happend?
- We didn't expect anything like that... so we agreed with this contract.
- It was the biggest mistake that you had ever done!
- I know... and I don't know what to do now! - Melody started to crying.
- Honey, please... stop crying, I didn't want to hurt you. I am just frustrated about this situation...
- Alright... mom, please... only you can help us.
- I know where you can stay for some time. It's not a five-star hotel, but I'm sure that you will like it.
- Thank you mom, you are great! So here they are. Melody's mother was right - it's not a hotel. It isn't even a youth hostel. Well... is this a place for baby? It's compeletly devastated. Rooms are dark and not comfortable. Look at this wall. It's ugly! But... Melody and Mike can't afford for better place. Maybe you will ak me: why they don't live wiht Melody's mother? Because she has got only one room in her flat. Besides, she gave them all money that she got and buy them this little home... Or something like this. Mike was upset about whole situation. Very upset.
- I'm so mad at myself! What kind of guy am I? Silly me! I should provide you and our baby safe future... but I'm not!
Melodz tried to calm him down - Please, don't act like that. You know that I'm so scared fo you when you acting like that. It's not your fault!
- I will go for an interview. I will be back later. Bye.
- Bye Mike...
But he changed his mind. - Job can wait. I have some duties here, at home - Mike said and gave his wife a romantic, sweet and long kiss. When Mike went to search for some job, Melody wanted to have a bath - "Hmm, that's all that I want". But suddenly she felt a horrible pain in her stomach - "Oh no, it's started...!" [One week later]
So here they are: our young parents with their lovely son, Hayden. He is absolutely gorgeus. And guess what: at last Mike found great job - now he is a journalist. But will it be their happy ending? Who knows what future brings? We can only expect for next day...
