It had been a busy few weeks for Debbie since she had told William she had been feeling broody ever since she had heard about Libby’s accident and how she wanted to have a baby with William. She wasn’t sure how he would have reacted to it but thankfully after a brief moment of shock he seemed to really warm to the idea. By the time they had gotten round to making love Debbie was certain that William was really looking forward to becoming a daddy and had even said that he hoped she fell quite quickly for her own benefit as much as his. He had said that because Debbie had expressed how much she wanted to have a baby with him. William had spent plenty of nights with Debbie at her apartment and she had slept plenty of nights at his apartment as well and now it had been around ten weeks since Debbie and William had agreed to try for a baby.
They had seen a doctor just to confirm how quickly she might be able to fall pregnant after coming off the pill and he had clarified what she already knew that it would be possible for her to fall as quickly as a few days after coming off of it although to expect that it may take a few weeks due to the fact she had been on the pill for a couple of years and it would be well and truly in her system but had then added that there would be no reason why Debbie couldn’t fall pregnant within a couple of weeks at the latest. Debbie had left with a smile on her face preparing herself to hopefully fall pregnant within the time scale the doctor had suggested. However with being so busy at the florist due to it being Mothering Sunday at the weekend and had been busy with many men and women ordering floral arrangements that she hadn’t had proper time to think over the past few weeks.
With it being the Friday before Mother’s Day it was busier than ever and Debbie and Miles were rushed off their feet, in fact they could probably have done with another helping hand, but it seemed pointless to Debbie to hire another employee just for busy spells, their last one being over Valentine’s Day. Most of the arrangements which had been ordered weeks previous were already made up and waiting for collection between today and tomorrow but you always got the last minute men buying on behalf of their children and those were the ones which were taking over the florist today. Debbie was just about getting ready to serve another customer when she got a sharp pain in her stomach. She had been so busy that she hadn’t noticed that she hadn’t had a period in two months but when she had taken the odd pregnancy test just in case, it had turned up a negative result. However right now with the pain she was having in her stomach she could have sworn it could be the signs of having a miscarriage, but when she wasn’t even pregnant in the first place then how could that be possible?
Miles came rushing over to her fussing like she knew he would because of him being gay and having an immense feminine side. “Are you alright Debs?” He asked and she got another pain making her double over again. “I don’t know Miles, just getting this massive pain in my stomach.” She said and then she went to stand up when yet another pain came shooting across her. “I’ll be back in a minute Miles; can you take care of the customer?” She asked and he nodded his head as he put a hand on the small of her back, “Of course I can sweetie.” Debbie then ran to the toilet in the back shop of the florist and as she pulled her underwear down she saw a some drops of blood and if she didn’t know any better she would have said that she had just started her period, but these pains weren’t like your average period cramps, they were severe and the blood was just sporadic spotting. Debbie had read enough information online about getting pregnant and it suddenly came rushing to her that maybe she had been pregnant all along and the tests hadn’t shown it up. She must be having a miscarriage.
She just slumped to the floor and began to cry, she hadn’t wanted this, she wanted to be a mom so much, why was this happening to her now? How was she going to tell William that she was losing his baby that she didn’t even know she had been carrying? She slowly scrambled to her feet and made her way back out to the front shop and then whispered into Miles’ ear telling him what she had discovered. Straight away Miles got on the phone and contacted the emergency services and then he dialled William’s number from Debbie’s mobile and waited for him to answer. “William, it’s Debbie’s assistant Miles here, I’ve just phoned for an ambulance for Debbie I think if you aren’t too busy you should make your way to the shop as soon as possible to go with her, or if you don’t think you can make it here go right to the hospital. We’re too busy for me to go with her or I would.” He then gave Debbie back her mobile and turned to the customers, “I’m really sorry but we’re having a bit of a crisis, do you think you could all come back in half an hour so I know that my friend is safe, thanks.”
They all nodded their heads and made their way out of the shop just leaving Debbie alone with Miles and once again she slumped to the ground as another pain came over her and all Miles could do was to join her and put his arms around her holding her tightly as Debbie continued to sob on Miles’ shoulder not believing that she was losing a baby she didn’t even know she was carrying.
