She smiled to herself - and not always because he rubbed her the wrong way.
This was a decision she had already made once - but not really.
In fact, he had given her strict orders not to lift anything.
To be fair, his father hadn't made things any better by offering money to Alex and not his sister.
"It's not a big deal," Carmen said, and launched into another subject.
On the other hand, the dream was in her head, not his.
Assured that it had not, she turned back to him.
But you're still not comfortable with the decision, are you?
Or not at all.
We're going to have a baby, not a sin.
I know it still galls you that he was willing to help pay for your college education, but not Katie's.
"I suppose not," he finally said as he spooned mashed potatoes into his plate.
Hope that you'll start accepting me as your husband - your mate; not just a lover.
Maybe not, but it would have made a difference if I had known how you felt.
In spite of her decision not to, she glanced out the window.
If their meeting today was any indication, this visit was going to be interesting - if not uncomfortable.
It was a hacienda, not a ranch, and Señor Medena was the patrón.
You could wear a feed sack at a formal dinner and not look underdressed.
I don't want her to wake up in a strange room and not be able to find us.
The muscles on his chest and arms were not well defined.
"Not now," she whispered.
"Not for them." he said, and turned to the bathroom.
Not now implied later, but that didn't feel comfortable either.
The idea of making love in a strange bedroom was disturbing enough, but with only a door between them and the children, locked or not, it didn't feel right.
Never had she seen Alex so hostile - not even with Josh.
This new baby... it will not be too much?
This does not bother you?
Jonathan wants a little brother, not a little sister.
Not even a year had passed since the stabbing, but he had been doing well.
"I did not think of his wound," Felipa admitted.
He did not act as if it was bothering him.
We would not let him get on the horse with Destiny.
The men did not know of the wound.
But I have said they did not know you had a wound.
I'm not asking you to punish the men.
You will not call me father?
"I'm not your only child," Alex said stubbornly.
"I'm not like him," Alex stated firmly.
You're not like him, and I'm glad.
We can't - not right now.
"Our children will have everything they need, but not everything they want," Alex interrupted.
Not because she wanted the money, but because it might become an issue.
"Not for me," Carmen said instantly, and then blushed.
This is not enough for Alex to support?
It is not for me to say how he spends his money.
It is not so good as a baby with your blood?
Felipa, do not be long.
He does not like the way father treats us - financially.
I did not earn it.
I do not want all this.
Since you arrived, she is not sure this is the way.
It is not easy.
One does not dress or act like a lady.
Father will not change his mind.
In the end, he will not refuse.
If he does not take the inheritance, we will not have a home.
Alex defies father now, but he will not win.
He will see that the estate does not leave the family.
I hope not the way they did the last time.
But the horse did not buck him off.
Is he not wonderful?
The architecture was fantastic, but not near as exciting as the ride on a ferry.
That better not be Dulce.
No, not too far, but the party is tonight, so we need to stay close.
I'm not angry with you.
Her figure was not as well developed as Alondra or Dulce, but she looked nice in the style and color.
They must have been close, and yet, to the best of her memory, Alex had not spoken of Gerald.
Carmen shrugged, not knowing what to say.
So the party was actually for him, not both of them.
I'm not ever going to know them if I never meet them, am I?
"I guess not," he said, glancing around.
Possibly not, but that was the end result.
"Wait... not now... stop," he mimicked in falsetto.
Not that one had anything to do with the other, but the technology of surrogacy would have been inconceivable back then.
I do not need it.
I did not know Alex would drink it.
You did not tell him?
You will not tell him?
If we do not...
She would have thought Dulce adored her father, but obviously not.
She could believe that of Dulce, but not of Felipa.
"They're not identical twins," he answered.
They might not look alike?
These babies might not be in her womb, but they did belong to Alex.
It's not a decision or a wish any more.
I hope it's not that unpleasant.
She shoved the photo back into the envelope and closed the lip, willing herself not to think about the previous pregnancy and its tragic end.
"I did not know," Felipa said in a voice that sounded stricken.
Her sadness had nothing to do with not appreciating their fortune.
Still, Alex had presented the issue as responsibility, not money.
Let's not think of unpleasant things right now.
It's not like that at all.
It was Christmas morning and all was not well.
The atmosphere felt stiff and formal, as if this was not part of their routine.
I'm sorry, sweetheart, but at least for now, I think it's better that you're not involved.
Whether we want to admit it or not, we all wish everyone would like us.
You are not late.
"I hope I do not disturb you," he said.
"He will not return before we get back," he said quickly.
You are not impressed?
