Family Planning (Photo Story)

Brandy and Angelica stop at a bar for drinks after a day of shopping.

You can ask me about anything but the wedding. I’m all talked out on that topic. (Brandy)
Well, it won’t be long now, so I’ll let you off the hook. (Angelica)


It’s been a helluva week at work. I think I’ll have a glass of red wine. How about you? (Angelica, waving the waitress over)
Hmmm, I think I’ll try one of those fruity cocktails, but without the alcohol. (Brandy)


No alcohol? Don’t tell me your diet won’t allow for the occasional cocktail with a splash of happy juice. (Angelica)
No, I’m not counting calories. I’m abstaining for other reasons. (Brandy)


Oh my gosh, are you pregnant?! (Angelica)
Angie, please! (Brandy)


Don’t “Angie, please” me. I can tell when you’re hiding something. You get that look. (Angelica)
I am NOT pregnant. But when I am, you will know. (Brandy)


LATER

Brandy returns home from shopping. Tony is on the sofa reading the paper.


Did I tell you that I saw my doctor yesterday? (Brandy)
No, is everything okay, Babe? (Tony)


Mm hmm, I needed to do my biometric screening and I was due for a physical, so I scheduled an appointment with my doctor. I, um, told her not to renew my prescription for birth control pills. (Brandy)


What?! (Tony)
Don’t worry. She says it can take a few months to get out of my system, and we’ll be married by then. (Brandy)


But Babe don’t you want to enjoy life as newlyweds before adding kids to the equation? (Tony)
It’s a little late for that, or have you forgotten? (Brandy)


You know what I mean, and having Kayla in our lives is different. We get her a couple of weekends a month. That’s not the same as caring for a newborn 24-7. (Tony)
I don’t see any point in waiting to start our family. (Brandy)


I just think we should talk about it first. (Tony)
That’s what we’re doing right now. (Brandy)


Yeah, but… (Tony)
I thought you’d be excited about this. We’ve both talked about wanting lots of kids. I’m ready to get started. (Brandy)

Tony stops to really hear what his fiancée is saying. Then he moves to sit next to her.


Alright, just look me in the eyes and tell me this is what you really want and that it has nothing to do with your mother wanting grandbabies or me already having a child with Lea or anything like that. (Tony)


Brandy looks Tony in the eyes and smiles and then kisses him passionately.
