The Month of March passes, and it's now April. Elizabeth is now seven months pregnant. She and Brian have been great. He makes sure to come home for dinner and they spend as much time together as they can, going back to their regular relationship before, Ethan was putting doubts in each others heads. They haven’t brought up Ethan or if the child is his or not in the last few weeks. Both trying to enjoy their newly accepted vows.
Elizabeth knows she needs to tell her mother and girls that they have gotten married. She kept it a secret long enough and wasn’t even sure how she kept it this long. She was happy to be married to Brian, even though before it took place she was terrified now that it happened she was embracing it.
One day, while Brian is at work Joan calls Elizabeth to check in on her as she did daily. Joan missed Elizabeth dearly. They were always close, this move separated them, it was something Joan wasn't too happy about. She didn’t mind Elizabeth cheating or moving on from Ethan. She understood why all that took place. She watched the years go by that Elizabeth put up with Ethan. In a way, Joan couldn’t believe it lasted this long. She was happy to see her daughter grow up in so many ways.
In a way, even though Ethan did act like the way he did, Joan felt sorry for him. Saying he didn’t know any better, It was how he was raised. He was just like his mother, never satisfied, never happy. Joan could accept that, she didn't like accepting Elizabeth moving to another state and being so far away from her. She was trying her best to stick by her and give her all the support she needed. She just wished this wasn’t one of her choices.
“How are you feeling today? Everything ok?” Joan asks.
“Yes, mother everything is going well. I am a bit tired but that's to be expected. Soon this will be over and we will have our son here.” Elizabeth says.
