What are best friends for if not for scheming? Two of the most important people in Bec’s circle, her best friend and boyfriend, were about to plan one of the most pivotal moments in her life. Although what was initially supposed to be one surprise turned unexpectedly into two.
Without any goading or subtle hinting from Bec, Nick knew he wanted to be with her forever, so he enlisted the help of her best friend to get her out of the house while he stayed back to decorate the space for her arrival later that evening. Her friend devised a simple white lie to entice her to come over; let’s have Bec give her friend’s brand new fling the third degree, as all good friends do.
As the afternoon began, the drinks were about to flow when Bec had a weird gut feeling. Not a food-related one. She thought,
“ I shouldn’t be drinking at all, so I popped upstairs without saying anything to quickly take a pregnancy test and sure enough those two little blue lines appeared. I couldn’t ring Nick to tell him without Hannah hearing the news at the same time, so I sent him a sneaky little msg and then came downstairs to break the news to Hannah that there would be only mocktails for me that night.”
As Bec stood there processing her recent news while also being slightly overwhelmed, her friend sprang into spontaneous dancing around the living room as she knew exactly how the night would end.
Later that evening, Bec was dropped off at the house. As she walked inside their beautiful old home, she was greeted by strung fairy lights, tea candles everywhere and her favourite song playing. “This is a lot for falling pregnant,” she thought, but then she glanced over to find the love of her life bent down on one knee. She was not expecting that. Before truly realising what had just transpired, she threw her arms around him and said, “Yes!” It was truly all meant to be.
