I have been writing this fictional story of two characters beginning from their wedding day, capturing little moments as they move ahead in life as a couple. Anastasia & Joel – the figment of my imagination
Some of my friends have asked me, why Anastasia (Ana) & Joel?
Sometimes you need names taken from real life situations, helps the writer (in this case ‘me’ to give the story more of a personal touch). So you could say, via this story (which is a 100% fictional one) I’m living a little bit of my life, considering that I am still unmarried and these things still haven’t happened. It’s a future of sorts to look forward to.
I really don’t know what prompted me in the first place to write something like this..I’m not so much of a person who continues short stories, but somehow this story is stuck to my head and I feel like writing a few lines more every time I find a new plot to link it to the previous one.
You will find the story flow here below, as it was written…
I was sitting at the dining table about to bite into my toast bread when Ana came running from the bedroom with a broad smile hiding something behind her back.
“good morning baby” you’re up early today 🙂
It was evident in her smile that she was excited about something..
“what’s up baby, you wanna tell me something”
She takes her hands out from the back and shows me this plastic stick with two lines on it.
These two lines were going to change our life.
We were having a baby…! Ana was pregnant! I kept the bit toast back on the plate and hugged Ana..
“now..now..you don’t wanna squeeze the baby and her mommy too tight” 🙂
“Oh yes (pulling away a little)..are u okay? You must relax..O’ what the hell… I love you so much, the mother of our baby” as I pulled her towards me and gave Ana a hug making sure I didn’t squeeze her too tight.
I was in disbelief! I was in shock! I was happy, joyful, excited….but most of all I was in love with this baby that was already growing inside of my wife’s tummy!
I couldn’t wait enough for this day to happen.
But it was happening….we were going to be parents…!!!
The coming days would be the most beautiful days of our lives…
