The raven man shook his head lightly as Minnie begun to speak about her weight. There was no denying that Minnie’s stomach had grown larger, but it wasn’t as there wasn’t a reason for it.
"You’re not a whale."
He thought about saying more, but instead he rested his arm around her softly as she sat done next to him. Though he lightly bit down on his lip as Minnie reminded him about her due date being a month a way.
“A month that will come faster than we both think.”
”I’m not a whale, but I sure feel like one.”
Minnie wanted to speak up, apologize once more for the things that had brought them here to this moment; instead, she kept it inside per usual. He would keep his thoughts to himself, just as she would — and that was how they would deal with this; it was the only way there truly was to deal with this.
”I wish it would come now. I want to look normal again. I want to feel normal…”
But she would never truly feel normal — not with the fact that in a months time, she would be a mother. That in itself wasn’t normal. Then again, what about her life in the past year had been normal? On the other hand, she was excited…despite the details that surrounded the situation.
