Love So True 13"Well...are you sure you really want to try that again? Not that we want to try to stop you, of course, but Stella is growing more and more concerned about you two over this."
"I know it seems like we might only end up disappointed again, but we really shouldn't stop trying. Our adoption portfolio was sent out five months ago and we haven't had any results. ...We want to try again. Would it be possible to forgo one more fertility treatment?"
"Yes, we could still try. However, with Christine's infertility as it is, there's a very low chance it could work, especially at this point."
Brainy stood in the elevator as he listened to Kevin sigh heavily on the other line, pushing the button that indicated the floor he wanted to ascend to of the condo building.
"Yeah, we do know that. Yes, setting ourselves up to be disappointed again isn't going to be fun. The past year, you've been dealing with quite a few couples who lost a baby, huh?"
"I have." Brainy ran a hand through his pale blonde hair
Love So True-Bound By Law 1I never knew what it was about Arnold. And yet it seemed obvious, in a way. I liked him so much. A lot more than as a friend, which was weird to me. I mean, I'm married, and I love my husband very much, and I love my life as it is now. At times he's like my "celebrity crush", pretty much. But I just don't understand.
It was funny, though. I always had strange feelings when I was near him. Strange urges, if you will. Like I wanted to do something that was far beyond familial or platonic.
Especially that one night, when we left the school board office building, after the meeting with the board members and school representatives. We were in the parking lot, standing next to my car. We were embracing...and even though it was pretty chilly that night, I felt so warm in his arms. So safe. I don't know why I hugged him. I only hugged people I cared about, like my family, my husband and very close friends. And sure, at that point Arnold and I knew each other fairly well and got along great, I
Love So True 12On one night, Brainy had a dream. A nightmare.
He was dreaming, that he was wandering around, aimlessly, there was fog all around, he couldn't see ten feet in front of him. From what he could tell, he was on a road, leading to...who-knew-where. Wherever it led, he couldn't help but feel very hesitant about proceeding. The fog was thicker than any fog he'd ever seen in his life.
Where am I? Am I dreaming? Or is this like Stephen King's "The Mist", and there is some big monster out to grab me?
Ahead, somewhere in the fog, or his imagination, he didn't know, he could hear the unmistakable sound of laughter. Nothing evil or malevolent, as he would have likely expected in a place like this, but just laughter. Young, childish laughter. But there was something familiar about this laughter. So familiar.
Brainy walked along the deserted, foggy road, and as he saw clearer the further he went, he could hear soft thumping on the pavement, like something was jumping up and down on it perio
