"You're still going on about that?" Anthony started to get a little narked, "We already have a solution!"
"Where are you going to find the money for an abortion, anyway?!" Sam starting becoming more argumentative.
"Getting rid of these babies is a lot cheaper than keeping them"
"We can give them away to someone who will be able to look after them."
"You promised me that with the last two! Once you have those babies, you wouldn't dare give them up!" Anthony finished the conversation by saying,

Thanks Aurora. Ohboy and I intend to keep on writing and hopefully get this story to the end.

Sam's Crow is probably the better writer of the two. After all, her descriptions of the background action are much more seamless than mine. Not to mention that she can capture real human emotion better.

"It'll be different this time." Sam pleaded.
Anthony turned around, renewing the conversation. "How?"
"Because, we could afford them. We can't afford twins."
"You'll keep them, just like you always do. An abortion will make sure that you don't have a change of heart."

"Please, Anthony. I'll start arranging things tomorrow, I promise."
"This is your last chance Matina. If I find out you are doing what you did last time, I swear, there'll be big trouble" he finished.

Sam left his "husband" to do what he needs to do.

Thank you very much for all of your kind words. If you would ever like to post a story contribution, then it'll be welcome.

As Anthony picked up his pen and returned to the newspaper, Sam returned to the kitchen. Sam could see Al bent over, while all three children were still huddled around the handlink.

"Al, could I see you for a moment."

"Sure, Sam." Al whispered something to the children that Sam was too far away to hear, and then walked over and whispered to Sam: "Did it work?"

"Yes, it did. I told him I would arrange an adoption for them. Al, do you know where the nearest adoption center is?"

Al clicked on his handlink, and Sam could see the children giggle as it made all sorts of funny noises. "Here's the nearest one, along with a phone number." Sam quickly looked through the nearby drawers for a pen and notepad, and wrote the telephone number down.

"Thanks Al. Could you watch the kids a bit longer?"

Although I believe that it's a compliment. Right?

Of course. "I think we'll keep you after all" is kind of a jokey compliment.

Sorry if you felt offended in any way, Aurora.

Oh, I see what you mean. When you put it like that, I can see it as being a phrase of endearment. Like she's so nice, you want to adopt her. But you don't really, it's just that she's so nice you would if you were in a situation approrpriate to do so. I'm starting to confuse myself, and probably misinform somebody else, so I'm going to just edge away from this explanation.

By the way, your turn to post a story contribution.

Sam left and Al was left alone with the three children, and started being "interviewed" by the eldest child. "What's it like in the future? Are there aliens and flying cars?"
"Well er... not yet, but we're wroking on it", Al answers.
Then she started asking questions about her future, "Who do I get married to? Do I have kids? Will I be married to a prince?"
Al's smile turned into a look of sadness and sorrow.

Sam return Al's look with a sympathetic smile, before walking over to the nearby telephone. He picked it up and dialed the telephone number that Al gave him.

"St. Joseph's Adoption Center. How may I help you?"

"I'm about to have twins, and I would like to put them up for adoption."

As Sam was on the telephone, Al was having his own problems. He had to tell these children something, but without giving enought information to alter the future beyond what Sam was doing. Besides, he knew that he couldn't tell them their current future.

"Well... Uh... I'm not allowed to give out that information," Al said, trying to hurry and change the subject. "Hey, would you all like to see what this handlink can do?"

A chorus of "yes"es was his response. "Alright then. Watch this." At this, Al made a hologram of a cat appear. The children were in awe, their faces aglow in both wonder and confusion as to what they had just witnessed.

"Pretty cool, huh?" Al said as he turned around and glanced at Sam, hoping that he was doing a good job to make sure the family stayed together.

Aww its ok. I think I thought of it more as a "Hey, a new member- I don't trust her/want to keep her around" Sorta joking..thing. Then after talking with and complementing you guys its more of a "Hey..she isn't too bad..lets keep her after all" Sorta thing. Or at least thats how my mind works xD Unless i didn't get it right and in that case i have an accuse cause its early morning and i haven't slept yet.

Either way: be happy your mind doesn't work like mine Your still a MUCH better writer then me..so you can't be stupid, right?

I hope y'all don't mind if I jump in here...

As Sam puts the phone back in its cradle, he motions Al over. "I have an appointment with them tomorrow at one."

"That's great, Sam," Al said. He smacks his hand link with the ball of his hand. "It looks like things have changed in favor of the twins... but only by 12%. You're gonna have to... "

"I know, I know... make a good impression tomorrow."

"You got it," Al said.

The next day, Sam walks up the sidewalk toward the adoption center. He looks down to check the time as he approaches the door, it flies open and nearly hits him. A well-dressed couple rushes out.

Sam sidesteps and mumbles, "Sorry. Excuse me."

The woman locks eyes with him, but Sam tears his gaze away and instinctively puts his hands over his belly. Her eyes narrow. The husband puts his hand on her arm.

"Maddie..." he says.

Maddie looks intently at Sam. "Pardon me, but are you... ?"

Sam nods.

Maddie looks at her husband and back at Sam, a slow smile creeps onto her face.

The way my mind works, if I meet somone I've never met before, I don't like nor hate them. After a while when I get a chance to know them I decide whether they're okay or not.

I had doubts about the forum before joining because often when I join a forum, I find that most, (if not, all others) who's there are real ********s towards me, but this forum turned out okay.

Oh, lord, it sounds like you've had bad past-forum experiences as well. I've only had one, but I didn't actually register for it, so I can't really say I experienced it.

Anyways, I'm dying to see how Sam's Crow picks up where I left off, because I think I left it a little to vague. I don't think I really gave any direction, so you can kind of take this next post and veer the story in a variety of directions.

Al turned around as he heard Sam say, "Okay, thanks very much. Bye." Sam smiled at Al and gave him thumbs up.

Sorry Ohboy but whenever doing RR contributions I'm used to doing short entries.

Sam's Crow,

So sorry, but when my posts were approved (I had to get past the newb thing, ya know), it displaced your last entry.

Yikes.

No worries, Dee. It's great to have as many contributers as possible. Besides, anyone who has been following the story should know that it's out of order. If it makes you feel better, then:

Besides, this thread has veered off topic many times. I'm thinking at the end of this page of attaching a document in which is simply the stories in chronological order, since I'm sure it may be confusing. Or at the start of the new page (which by my default is every 25 posts).

And Sam's Crow, don't worry about short postings. You've been active here since the beginning, and have made many important plot contributions.
