Carl was not at all happy when I went to the doctor and found out I was 9 weeks pregnant with not just one baby but TWO. Carl had taken to sitting in his favorite chair watching ESPN, chain smoking and drinking until he passed out every day.
One evening, I came home from work to find Josh sitting in the middle of the living room floor crying. When I asked him what was wrong, he said he was afraid I wouldn't come back either and he was getting scared. I asked him what he was talking about.
He told me Carl left as soon as he got home from school to get cigarettes and more beer and never came back. We never saw or heard from Carl again.
