"Are you off your rocker?" Nev thought she was a laugh. He'd just gotten on at the diner as a prep cook. Yes, things were meager, but they had them a space in the storage room upstairs. "You can't be that daft, can you?" He gave her an ominous look.
"Don't you see, this is our chance." She'd do her best to sell him on this. Its all a documentary and we'll be in this big house. Cameras everywhere. Its not like they'll boot us off, you know. Its for folks to get an insight what its like to be a teen and preggers."
"How convenient?" He gave her a snide look. This was how it went with him. He knew the baby wasn't his. Half the time he didn't care because he loved her unconditionally, or so he said. Rae wasn't certain. "You want us to room with that bastard, Newt?"
"We'll be together. Its not like you have to shave with him, or anything." She gave him that lovely stare of hers that she could still bring it in the bedroom except they didn't have a bed to bring it in. Just a sleeping bag on the floor. Really, things were not that good.
"All right." He gave in. "Just what am I suppose to do with this crap job? Aye?" He was so serious.
"Don't bother. We'll find something better. We will." She took his hand and kissed his cheek. It was meant to be.
After all, they should make a hefty sum of cash if this deal went through. She could see them having their very own show some day. And that some day might be soon.
