Just an unexpected memory, I guess.
"I'll get us some coffee," she said, heading for the kitchen.
Did I ever tell you that you're the most handsome man I've ever seen?
I never thought I could do it.
I suppose they're both a little artificial.
No, but I can't sit on the fence forever - and I do want another baby.
I meant... do I have time to fix you a hot lunch?
I love you so much.
What are you going to hide from me that I haven't already seen?
I'm going to make myself a sandwich and get back to work.
I'll be in the kitchen... when you get decent.
I've got to go.
I can't imagine what he was thinking to hide a thing like that from you.
First of all, I married Alex because I love him.
I didn't ask about his family tree.
All I could think about was that I had a living father-in-law.
I just wondered how you felt about him hiding things from you.
I don't know if he is actually trying to hide things, or simply doesn't know how to initiate the subject.
Just about time I think the two of you are making progress, something like this comes up.
"I am now," he responded sleepily.
"I was," she whispered.
I'm so glad I have you.
"And I you," he said softly.
I wish you had called me.
I would have helped.
I figured you could use the rest.
I'll take care of the others if you want to watch the kids.
It isn't the first time I've cooked.
"I've got to go wash my hands and shuck this coat," she said.
I just thought it would be fun for the man to tell the wife this for once.
I thought maybe by now you would have adjusted.
I hope you accept this by the time the baby is born.
"I'm sorry," she said with a sigh.
But I guess if we have, it's no worse than having a child out of wedlock.
I wish you could hear yourself talking.
I've told myself that a hundred times.
"I won't talk about it any more," she said cheerfully.
I'll direct all my efforts into preparing for our new baby.
I'll accept it now that it is certain.
I want this baby as much as you do, Alex.
"I prefer," he said with a smile.
I know it still galls you that he was willing to help pay for your college education, but not Katie's.
I'll get supper on the table.
I have everything packed.
About noon, I guess.
I guess that's a good question.
I always pictured myself driving a van instead of a truck.
I didn't have much of an idea about the cost of raising children then, either.
"I suppose not," he finally said as he spooned mashed potatoes into his plate.
I just want it to be healthy.
I already have a son and daughter.
Did I give Jonathan his fair share of attention?
I think he felt included because he was helping as much as we were.
"I wasn't thinking," she said.
I didn't know you felt that way.
It isn't one of those things you can talk through, I guess.
Maybe not, but it would have made a difference if I had known how you felt.
No, so I could get over it.
I should get rid of this and buy something a little more feminine.
But I thought when people got married...
I mean, that they didn't feel this way all the time.
I guess maybe hearing people talk... about their marriage.
Umm. Well, I think something like 50% of marriages fail - maybe more.
"I like this," he said, zipping it up.
Do I look that bad?
Am I depositing enough money in the account?
I just didn't see any point in spending money on new clothes when my old ones still had a lot of wear in them.
I don't want you to start feeling neglected.
I was so excited that I couldn't sleep, so I got up and dressed.
"I'm sorry I didn't get up earlier," Carmen said.
I thought you needed to sleep longer because you were working so hard getting ready.
"I have been so excited since father said you were coming!" she said to Alex, but her eyes included Carmen.
"Can I hold her?" she asked Alex.
I doubt if she'll go to you.
I have a mare; and we have a five-year-old mare with a colt, a four year-old filly, and a two-year-old filly... oh, and my mare is going to foal again in January.
We... actually, I... was thinking about adopting a few wild horses from out west where they have too many.
I'd like to, but if it's too much trouble...
"I remember you declined," he defended archly.
Now I have reinforcements.
Jonathan and I will make sure we fill her in on anything she missed.
I'll bet you will.
Daddy, I wana hold wou.
I think it is so cute the way you two flirt with each other.
I hope to have a love like yours some day.
I know you must be tired, so I will let you rest.
Does that mean I'm supposed to change, or that what I'm wearing is considered casual?
I think she was merely directing the comment at you because she thought you might want to know.
I'll watch the kids.
I hadn't planned on it.
I didn't bring anything formal.
I don't remember ever feeling underdressed, though.
I wish everyone wore rose-colored glasses the way you do.
I don't want her to wake up in a strange room and not be able to find us.
I'm too warm in this one.
I have a couple of polo shirts, but no light shirts.
I guess that will do.
"I'll lock the door," he said, his lips returning to hers and lingering in a way that made her feel weak.
Give me one of those polo shirts and I'll go wash up.
I see what you mean.
Could I ride one?
I didn't mean to scare you.
She will have the baby for us because I have no womb, but it is our baby.
I guess it's just something different - something we aren't used to yet.
It isn't going to get any easier, so I'd better shape up.
I agreed to this and I want the baby as much as you do.
I don't want a shadow hanging over him.
I know, but... we're guests in this house, and...
As a matter of fact, I did.
"I guess," he finally said.
If I hadn't taken Destiny...
"I did not think of his wound," Felipa admitted.
I should have known you would feel this way.
But I have said they did not know you had a wound.
Would it have been better if I had fallen off and broken my neck?
I'm not asking you to punish the men.
I'm asking that you don't punish Felipa.
She has already apologized and I have accepted her apology.
I think that's sufficient.
I have been made acutely aware of that fact since I was a child.
"I'm not your only child," Alex said stubbornly.
I can talk, Alex said, his voice still firm but gentle.
I'm sorry, but you weren't going to speak in your behalf.
I feel certain of it.
"I'm sorry," she said, reaching for his arm.
"I'm not like him," Alex stated firmly.
You're not like him, and I'm glad.
I would like to.
"I'll talk to him," he whispered.
I know better than that.
"I'm sorry," she said.
I want to, but...
"I know," he said with a sigh, running fingers through his hair.
I don't want to spoil them - or anyone else to spoil them.
I guess I didn't at first.
I just thought it was because he was so good looking.
I knew because he proved to me that I could trust him with my heart and soul - the way you trust your mother and father.
I mean, there are different kinds of love.
I can't have one.
"Alex and I both want another baby," she finally repeated.
I don't want to bond with a child only to have it taken away.
I apologize for my sister.
Do you think I'm high maintenance?
"Basically, that I require a lot of attention," Carmen said.
I think Alex makes a concentrated effort to drive his father crazy.
I did not earn it.
I do not want all this.
I want what you have - a husband who loves me - and children.
"I was raised poor," Carmen said.
I know they don't like me.
But I don't know anything about dressing or acting like a lady.
I'll be back in a little while, sweetheart.
I'm going to bed early.
I didn't know you were awake.
"I couldn't sleep," she said.
Well I sure could.
Better. I think she was foundered.
Yeah, I think it's more like a miniature rodeo.
Oh, I was supposed to tell you about a party.
I don't have anything formal.
"I thought I remembered you telling me that," he said, sitting down on the bed.
I arranged to have their seamstress sew you one.
I have much to work with!
I think they are all having fun with Alex.
I hope not the way they did the last time.
"I think your mother would nail my hide to the wall," he responded as he finished putting his belt on.
I don't think anyone was timing me.
Yes. But I like taking care of my children.
I can hardly wait for the new baby.
Dulce said I want a lot.
I love you too.
For a minute there, I thought I was getting forgetful.
"I noticed," she said softly.
I've missed you so much.
Very. I'm so glad we have you and Jonathan.
I know who wou best fwiend is.
"Yes. I couldn't find a better friend than Alex, could I?" she said.
Well, whatever we do, I'd like to do it as a family.
I feel like we're drifting apart here.
I didn't realize you felt that way.
I understand when they have an emergency and you're handy, but surely they don't have emergencies all the time.
I'm not angry with you.
"I will go get your dress," Nina said to Carmen, and left the room.
I guess because the only one who should be looking at it is my husband.
I would have so much to look at!
"Now I will fix your hair," Felipa said.
"I will join you later," she said, and promptly left Carmen alone.
For a minute there I thought you were going to bolt and run.
For a minute there, I was ready to do just that.
First of all, I wasn't the only one involved.
I've never thought about it before.
You are the most beautiful woman I have ever seen.
I guess violet eyes are unusual, but I think they look the same from my viewpoint.
May I have this dance?
I didn't think I would ever meet you.
I was a little surprised at the invitation.
I thought maybe I wasn't high society material.
"Well, I wouldn't worry about that," she said.
I'm just a country hick myself.
I used to work with Alex as a Jr.
I saw his picture on your refrigerator.
I didn't mean to make you uncomfortable.
I worked with him for two years before I discovered who he really was.
"If it hadn't been for his sister, I probably still wouldn't know," he mused.
I couldn't even imagine him in a comma.
I never would have guessed.
I can see why Alex fell so hard for you.
I never thought of him as being anything else but a salesman until I saw him tonight, but he seems so... comfortable now.
I guess the only thing he wanted more than that was a good woman and children.
I think maybe Alex married you to get away from his family.
I would introduce you to Tessa, yes?
"I wondered if you were ever going to come back," she said, moving eagerly into step with him.
"I thought he was going to beat you to me again," "Who?" he asked again.
He said I was the most beautiful woman he'd ever seen.
I guess we could say he hasn't been around much.
I guess he was stunned by my beauty.
By whoever invited all these other people - I suppose because she was someone I knew.
I'm not ever going to know them if I never meet them, am I?
"I guess not," he said, glancing around.
I don't see Tessa right now.
I'll introduce you when I find her.
I just wish you'd stop hiding everything from me.
I guess I wasn't very polite, making a face like that.
I'm glad you saved me the trouble.
I'm tired of waiting.
I don't like it when you're rough like that.
I thought it would be better if I slept here.
Did I hurt you?
"Was I disrespectful?" he insisted.
I'm going to bed.
"I love you," he whispered against her ear, nuzzling it.
Well... I guess so, in a way.
Nothing. I was just thinking about technology.
"I think in August," she said.
I do not need it.
By the way, neither Alex nor I drink.
I did not know Alex would drink it.
But it would have been alright if I had?
I see no point in telling him.
I'm sure he doesn't think that.
If he treats me differently than others, I'm sure it's because we are married.
"A little," Carmen responded, "but I suppose that's natural, given our relationship.
That's unusual, I know, but we both like it that way.
I don't think of it that way.
If I didn't want to do what he said I'd tell him so - and he would listen to my reasons.
I simply want to follow his lead.
I wasn't even aware that I was staring at her... there.
I think everyone was guilty of staring at her at least once - if for no other reason, wondering if she was going to fall out of her dress.
I've been getting the feeling she is trying to break us up.
Maybe she thinks I'm the only thing keeping you from doing that.
But I think it's important that we're both aware of what's going on, don't you?
