Josh didn't mean to surprise Lauren, so suddenly. After all, he'd brought her a small bouquet of suckers. He watched her unwrap the round red egg shape sucker and put it her mouth. Evidently, she was determined to give him the silent treatment.
"You know, I care about you, luv." Josh was doing his damnedest to be sweet at the moment. At least the camera weren't on them. They were safe in a green room, somewhere for a private conversation.
"I've been trying really hard to keep away from the booze these days, you know. Just so I can help you. I really want to." He felt weak still, but he was tough, even if he were a lanky brute. His thin hair around his face hid his eyes. Maybe she needed to see him up close and personal. Really, if she'd just look at him, she'd know he was doing this for her and the baby.
"Bloody, unlikely, you still smell of weed, and ya gone gay on me as well, J?" She finally took a moment from nursing that sucker to give him a word. Wasn't exactly what he was hoping for.
"Don't ever call babe." She gave him a dead stare.
"Dave is with me on this, OK. We can take care of the little tike. That way, you wouldn't have to give the little bastard up, to anyone. We could share him. You know?" Josh begged. Practically, on one knew. "I don't want to give him up."
"How do you even know its a him, aye?" She pressed as she went back to pushing her mouth over the red sucker.
It almost took Josh's breath away. Of course, he wasn't necessarily thinking of candy. Some one was a lucky boy, but it wasn't him at the moment. Damn, if he could just kept his winkie in pants back then, none of this shit might not be discussed. Josh sighed then.
"Please, will you just think about it, Laurie? I need this. I do." Josh felt helpless then.
"You never did fuck a lass, properly, did you? I guess its too late, now." Lauren shrugged. She went back to the sucker.
"Please." Josh winced hard.
"I'll think on it." She looked at him out of the corner of her eye. Finally, she let him touch her belly. It wiggled immediately. Josh smiled instantly. The little bugger had to know he was it's dad.
