“But Alex…How…” Walker stammers.
“Walker, I think that’s obvious.”
“Are you sure about this? You could be wrong, you know.”
“I’m not wrong, Walker, not this time, and not about this.”
“But, Alex, I thought,………..”
“Walker, it happens, it’s done. There’s nothing we can do about it.” She reaches out to touch him.
He just shakes his head back and forth. His face a picture of complete confusion, “But it was my responsibility.”
“I don’t know how you can say that. I think it’s a responsibility that has to be shared.”
“But it’s all my fault, Alex. I should have known better than to trust those…”
“Walker, stop it! This is not your fault! This isn’t something you can blame on anyone. Her voice softens, “Walker, aren’t you the one who has always said that everything happens for a reason.”
“Well then, maybe this was meant to be”
“Are you all right with this, Alex?”
She looks at him with one raised eyebrow, “A little stunned at first, but I’m adjusting.”
“I don’t know, I don’t think it’s hit me yet.”
Alex shakes her head as she takes his hands in hers and looks deep into his eyes. “Walker, if you’d have known that this would be the result, would you have done anything differently?”
As he looks at her, he sees all of the love she has for him reflected in her eyes. He pulls her tightly into his arms and whispers, “No. Not a thing.”
Alex smiles at him, “Well, then. Get ready to be a Daddy, Cowboy.”
