party like its 1999
Oliver couldn't believe the news. It had happened. Shocking as it was. It was true. And he needed to shout it out, now.
He banged on Jules and Willow's door. Instantly, Jules answered as if he was sure the place was on fire.
"What the.." Jules started, and Willow was right under his arm.
"Come on! Come along! We have some drinking to do, mate!" He ran back down the hall with his bottle of champagne. Willow and Jules followed.
Kayla had her feet propped up on the couch, just like he'd left her.
"WE'RE HAVING A BABY!" He popped the cap, and started to pour the drink around. "Can you honestly believe it! Really! And truly! Its gonna happen!"
Kayla's smile was weak. He gave her juice.
Willow gave him a hug. Then Jules. Just then Ian got there so Oliver shouted it all over again.
"Really?" Ian was all smiles. Oliver gave him a glass of champagne.
"Don't worry, I'll feed you and you can stay awhile. You're not working tonight, are you?" He patted Ian on the back.
"I think... I can stay awhile." Ian nodded as he sipped the champagne.
"I can't believe it. I really can't." Oliver couldn't help his giddiness about the news. He hoped he wasn't driving Kayla nuts. He went to put his arm around her. She soon had to go to the bathroom and throw up.
Oliver beamed with happiness. He was going to be Dad. Honestly, he didn't think such a thing would ever happen to him.
