Kabelkath's Lair

Even after her talk with R'ku, Beris hasn't wholly embraced the idea of becoming a mum. She's still young, in her opinion. Not that she doesn't want to have a child with him. She just doesn't think she's ready. Not yet. There are things she wants to do, though if you asked her, she wouldn't be able to tell you exactly what. Continue working at The Pit forever? She couldn't join a craft now, so her path would be whatever work she could find. Until when? Until she died? Or would she have kids, then stay at home looking after them while R'ku went out and risked his life day after day?

She put on her face at work, dealing with customers, trying to keep busy to ignore all the thoughts fighting to come to the front of her mind. How could she have forgotten to take her tea? She couldn't blame R'ku, not with the surprise Threadfall and everything else he had going on. She didn't have any excuse. Shardit.

It wasn't until she got home and changed for bed that she noticed the tell-tale spots of red in her underwear. She was just late. Not pregnant. Just late. The first feeling was relief; the second guilt for feeling that way. Truth be told…it made things a lot simpler. No changes to their routines. No difference to their lives. They could carry on as they had, until they were ready. She just had to tell R'ku.

She couldn't help but wonder if the fortune-teller was onto something.
