having to decide



Olivia sat there startled. There was so much on her mind. Syd and Eric's wedding. Classes. Would she ever get Ravi to go home to see  his parents, again? And now this.

It had to be her real mother that Amber was talking about.

"What did she look like?" Olivia was curious.

"Kind of a redhead." Amber shrugged.

"Really?" She was happy yet sad to hear these little things.

"She was hoping you had kids by now." Amber smiled.

"Oh, great." Olivia pushed her fingers through her hair. She had never ever thought of herself having kids. It scared her so much. She just thought of herself never having any of her own. "How old does she think I am?" Olivia winced then.

"Look, I don't mean to mean about it, but they both might be a bit loony. Sorry." Amber sipped her coffee then.

"Its OK. I just thought, I'd find my sister first, you know. Now this." Olivia broke the scone... she wasn't sure she was hungry for. "Well, lets do lunch with her. But it'll have to wait until after Syd and Eric's thing at the courthouse."

"Are you throwing them a party?" Amber asked.

"More like brunch. That is if she doesn't go into labor first." Olivia sighed. She wouldn't want to trade places with Syd.
