One of my class assignments was to write a dialogue between a couple of an unexpected event in their lives. Here is my story between Miranda and Brad. I have been thinking of maybe making this into a short story later, when I have the chance. Miranda and Brad are both young, Miranda is 21 and Brad, 24. They have only be dating six months.
Miranda slowly opens the bathroom door that adjoins her bedroom. She looks over to the bed where Brad is sitting, waiting patiently for her to come out of the bathroom with news.
“It’s ready,” Miranda whispers. She has a hard time holding onto the little white plastic stick in her hand, which is shaking and sweating profusely. Slowly walking across the room, she stands in front of Brad, her boyfriend of six months.
“So, what does it say?” Brad asks, looking at Miranda and motioning for her to sit beside him.
“I’m not sure, I didn’t look at it yet. I wanted you to look with me,” Miranda replies as she sits down beside Brad, leaning in close to him, so close she smells his musky cologne. Miranda isn’t ready for this but flips over the little stick in her hands and looks down.
“Oh my God, it’s positive” Miranda says with tears in her voice, even though she doesn’t want to cry.
“It’s okay,” Brad reaches his arms around Miranda and pulls her into a tight embrace. “We will handle this together, Miranda.”
“Are you sure?” Miranda asks Brad, looking up to his eyes from their embrace. “I am super scared, Brad.”
“Yes, I am one hundred percent sure, I know we haven’t been dating long but I won't leave you to do this on your own,” Brad says as he leans in and gently places a kiss on Miranda’s forehead. “We will take it one day at a time.” and in that moment Miranda knew that Brad would be right there by her side through all of this.
Too be continued....
