Cloudy days always reminded Kallie of the smoggy days in the city, where she'd sit by the window early in the morning after Logan had gone to work and she was left alone in the apartment until class started with a warm cup of coffee warming her hands on a cold winter day. Maybe it was better that clouds was the closest she got to smog anymore, but it was a warm memory of the days that had passed a long time ago. Now here they were in Ioana, a baby on the way, who would be arriving in little more than a couple of weeks. The whole thought was quite exciting when she thought about it.
But he was at work now, and just like those old days, Kallie was by herself until he came home. Sitting down with a warm cup of hot chocolate, she hadn't thought about how she needed to go to the bathroom all that much until just about now. She knew her Grandpa and Barrett were out somewhere in the fields and Caden had taken their mother out for a walk a little while ago, so she knew the only ones in the house were her and Penny, so there was only about a 50-50 chance that the bathroom was occupied.
She stood up and waddled towards the bathroom,gently chiding her baby as she did so. "You know if you're gonna use my bladder as a kick ball at least give me a little warning huh?" She asked as she made her way down the hall, even if she knew she would find the answer she was looking for asking him directly. At least not for some weeks. Though the bathroom door was locked and Kallie decided the 50% that would end in her not using the bathroom had won, but Penny's voice rang out moments later. "Oh uh-- Don't worry Penny, it's not urgent!" She said, hoping she wouldn't rush on her account.
The door yanked open and Kallie noticed that Penny seemed rushed, and almost...scared. "Penny, are you...?" But she didn't have time to get the question out as the blonde zipped past her and out of the house. She frowned, walking into the bathroom, but her eyes picked up on something resting by the dust bin almost immediately. With great effort she was able to pick it up, reading the lines, the same kind she had gotten with wide eyes. Double lines, she was pregnant. It had to be Penny, being that they were the only two women in the house that were even capable of having children anymore. Unless Barrett had done some drunk pissing on a stick, but the two lines wouldn't have shown unless he had something to tell them.
"Kallie, whatcha' doin'?" Kallie jumped, nearly flinging the test out of her hand. "B-Barrett! W-what are you-?"
"Ya' were standing in the bathroom starin' off into space so ah--" Barrett seemed to freeze as his eyes dropped to the test in her hand. Should she tell him? After all, Penny had said Barrett wasn't the only one, right? So maybe it wasn't his. "It's mine." She said quickly, shifting it into the bin.
"Kallie, Ah' don't know how to tell ya' this, but yer' already pregnant." Kallie sighed, pushing him out of the bathroom. "I know, I just wanted to...see if the test changed the more pregnant you were."
"Yer' real dumb for a city gal' Kallie." He said as she slammed the door shut.
It was pretty good that he wasn't exactly a smart boy.
