Bob didn't get any more sleep after his little discovery. He spent the rest of the night pacing the living room floor, trying to keep his panic under control. This is big. This is really big. How in the Web is he going to tell Dot? (Never mind the weirdness of him having to break the news to her in the first place...)

As dawn starts to break, he heads for the kitchen. Might as well do something constructive with all that nervous energy. He's not a great cook, by any means, but he can make simple breakfast foods like flopjacks, hot links, scrambled Easter Eggs... or, in this case, all of the above.

Dot should be getting up any nano now.

That she is, as movements begin upstairs where she wakes up, finding a complete lack of her fiance in their bed. Dot's still groggy, but doesn't Bob usually tell her where he's going before he leaves?

...And why does the house smell like cooked breakfast?

She does get on her morning outfit and walks downstairs eventually.

"Okay, I'll just be down in a sec, I need to get my morning JAVA."

She'll pause when the words 'I made Breakfast' actually settle into her conciousness in 3..2..1..

"You made breakfast?"

"...Bob....what's going on?"

This is definitely not like him, he's even less of a morning person and.. Good Code.

"Are you planning to feed half of Mainframe breakfast today?"

"Thank you..." Dot eyes him a bit, eyebrow raised as she sits down in the offered chair. "Now then...what did you do?"

Dot smiles at him coyly, putting a few scrambled Easter Eggs on her plate.

"You know, I've never known you to be the one to cook breakfast."
command_dot_com: (charming)

"Alright...but leave the dinner meals to me, alright? It's nice to cook sometimes." The cocoa gets a raised eyebrow. Funny man, you honestly want to stand between the workaholic and her morning stimulants? "Is this another attempt to get me to work a little less? You do realize that's what vacations in Milliways are for."

It's that hesitation that makes all the alarm klaxons in Dot's head go off.

"...Bob...what is it? What's wrong?"
command_dot_com: (WTF)

[personal profile] command_dot_com 2008-01-20 09:48 pm (UTC)(link)
"Then what gives?" Dot says, not calming down in the slightest. "You're acting awfully jumpy for no apparent reason. Or at least one you haven't told me yet."
command_dot_com: (oh my)

She might be pregnant. Pregnant, oh User, how is she going to handle a pregnancy now on top of the wedding...

She's pregnant. Pregnant, possibly by this time next hour she'll be giving birth.

Is Bob even ready to be a father? the entire concept gave him the jaggies...

She's pregnant.

"...oh. my."

Meanwhile...her breakfast is going untouched...somehow she doesn't seem to have the appettite.
command_dot_com: (joy)

Dot reches down to where Bob's hand is...to where the node is inside of her.

"...if I am pregnant...we're going to have to make a lot of changes...aren't we?" She says softly.

I'm going to be a mom..

She can't help it as she chuckles at him trying to lighten the situation.

"Maybe...it'll take at least 4 minutes before I start getting any bigger." She pauses looking at him. "...Are you ready to be a dad?"

"Alright, I'll see about scheduling a full scan with Phong sometime today..." Dot smiles a little. "Is that why you made such a big breakfast?"
command_dot_com: (flirt)

"That's not eating for two, that's eating for a small army, honey." Dot smirks. "But it's the thought that counts."
