Weding party part ten

Sometimes,  a single moment can change everything. That was true for matt. Matt and amber had known eachother for a few years.  She was his sisters best friend. They went from aqaintence to friend to close friends.  Now as they prepare for his sister’s wedding, things seemed to be heeding in a romantic direction for matt and amber.  

He told her his fears. After the rehearsal,  amber asked him to marry her. He considered her request. He went home and prayed about it. He prayed and prayed.  He read some scripture. He went though the concordance.  He read several verses. The verses about leaving his mother and farther and cleving unto his wife kept coming up. As he read it,he thought about amber. 

He prayed a lite more. He commited to the lord and to amber. He dedicated them as a couple to the lord. He had a peace about him. He went to bed fairly at peace.  

That moring he woke up and got dressed. He went to the jewery store. He looked around. He looked at several.  He found the one he liked. He stared at it. He paid for it then he left. 

He took it out and looked at it . he cried for a bit. He had so manny emotions. They all flooded into him. 

He went home and got ready. He showered and got dressed.  He put on his tuxedo.  He styled his hair. He got ready to go. He drove to the church. He was nervous but excited at the same time. 

Amber had thought about talking to him on friday. Now she wished that she had not. He did not react the way she thought he would . mayby she made the wrong decision. She had no idea. She knew that this was one of the happiest day of her life. She wanted to do this for her. 

Mayby she pushed him too far. Mayby she jumped the gun. She tried not to be anything but happy in front of her best friend. This was her day and she refused to ruin it for her. 

“Ready ?” amber asked. “Absolutely! ” tracy said. ” i am so happy for you trace. “Amber said. “Thanks.  Amber thank you so much. You are a great friend. I realy apreciate all you have done. ” tracy said.

Amber hugged her friend. ” i was glad to do it. Thank you for letting me be a part of this.” amber said.”you will pick me to be your maid of hornor right?” tracy asked. “Assuming that i am not a spinster all my life, you got it. ” she said. “You wont. I am prety sure of that. “Tracy said. 

She was not so sure. Now was not the time to discuss her concerns to tracy. She wanted her to enjoy her special day.  That was importent to her. Whatever else happened, she would deal with that later. 

They got ready to leave for the church. They got dressed and ready for the wedding. Tracy and her mom had a moment. She hugged her mom.”your father would be so proud of you. I am so proud of you. “She said. ” i love you mom. ” tracy said. They bith cried.  

Matt came in.  Matt hugged tracy. “You drove me uterly nuts some times. I love you trace. I am so proud of you. I cant express how much.” he said. “I know.  I hope i did not anoy you too much! I love you. ” tracy said. 

They started to walk out. “Oh amber.” he said. “Yea!” she said.  He took her hand. As he talked he slipped the engagement ring on her finger. ” about what we talled about, the answer is yes. ” he said. 

She hugged matt. She held on to him for a seccond. ” whats going on ?” tracy asked. “Matt and i just got engaged! ” amber said. Tracy and amber hugged. “Congratulations! ” tracy said. 

They all headed for the corridor to the sanctuary.  They got the signal. They started to walk to the front of the church. 

“We are hear in the sight of the lord and those hear to join these two in holly matrimony. Steven rayman and tracy lynn feel caled to enter into holly matrimony after much prayer.who gives her away?” the aficiator asked. ” i do. ” matt said. 

Matt then steped back as is tradition.  He took her hand. ” do you steven take tracy do be your lawfully wedded wife, to have and to hold, in sickness and health, richer or for porer, as long as you both shal live” he asked. ” i do. ” he said. 

Tracy was asked a similar question and answered in the affirmative.  They exchanged rings. The man that officiate the wedding declared that they were now mr and mr. Steven brey. They had there first kiss. There was thunderous applause.  

Tracy and steven and the wedding party had there pictures taken. There were group pictures taken. Thete were some of the bride and groom. There was the whole weding party. There was Stevens family. There was tracys family. Then amber incisted one of amber and matt. It was there first picture as an engaged couple. 

He put his arm around her. Amber was Stil in shock. She realy thought that he was going to say no. He did not. 

Amber had eaten for a bit. Matt came around to her. “Amb can i steal you for a minute? I want to tell mom our news.  ” he said. She smiled. “Sounds good.  ” he said. He took her hand and they headed to where his mom was. 

“Mom hi. ” matt said.”hi matt. Hi amber. “His mom said. “Mom , amber and i are engaged. ” Matt said. His mom smilled. ” congratulations!  I kind of wondered if something like that was the case. Its funy your dad and i use to joke about You two. He was prety sure that might happen. ” she said. 

She hugged amber.  ” welcome to the family amber! ” she said. Amber was so happy. 

After a while, tracy and steven headed out. The guests saw them off. Matt went over to amber. She hugged her. ” hello fiancée.  ” amber said.  “Hi hunnie. ” he said. 

“You know, i realy thought you were going to say no. ” amber said “why did you think that?” he asked. “I am a cooky penticostal. I am not really qiet or demure.  You might have been offended that i asked you. ” she said. 

“No i was not. No i wanted to say yes last night. I needed to think about it. I needed to make sure i had the lord’s approval.  I really wanted to say yes. I am sory if i gave you an otherwise impresson. ” he said. 

“Thats ok.i love the ring by the way. I cant stop staring at it. ” she said. ” it looks really good on you. Amber i cant wait for you for you to be my wife.”he said. 

“I cant wait for you to be my husband.  You are going to be a great one. ” she said.  “You have always been there for  me. I have always been able to count on you. I could not have made it though my dad’s death without you. You fulfill the qualifications for a help meet and then some. ” he said.

“You have been there for me. I have liked you for a while. I was not quite sure if you felt how i did. “She said. “I have liked you for a while. I was not sure how to tell you. I was afraid mayby you saw me more like a sister. I am so happy. ” she said. 

“I am too. I cant believe it. “He said. “So i am thinking that i will try to be moved back hear by the fall. No later sense steptember. I do want to have my position filled before i leave. It will take some doing but i want to get back up hear as soon as i can. ” she told him.

“You think you will be able to be up by the fall? ” he asked. “Lord wiling, it will work.  Good news is that i am not flying out until monday morning.  Your stuck with me til then. “She said.

“Sounds good. ” he said. She hugged her. He put his arm around her. Both were verry happy. They both were happy. 

They helped to take some stuff down. They got the felowship hall looking like it usually did. They then left. 

Matt and amber went back to his mom’s house.  They knew that they only had a day anda few hours before she flew back to the west coast.  They will make the most of it. 

End of part ten. 

Next up. 

Matt and amber spend time together before she has to go back. 

End of sorrow part 12

Previously on end of sorrow. 

Abby and Andrew have had a long dificult road. Andrew lost his fiancée a few years back. Abby reached out to him. The two became friends. They eventualy decided to date. It has been a dificult courtship.  

Andrew has never been able to let go of leah. Abby has tried to be patient. It would not be easy. 

Andrew had gone to see Leah’s parrents. He did not ask for permision but did imply it. He did not tell abby. Abby found out after the fact.  It caused some conflict. 

Abby wanted some time to herself. She put on k kove. She sat on the couch thinking for a while.  She was so confused. She really did care about him. She was just weary by the whole thing. 

She wished that he would fully embrace her. He wished he would just leave leane behind. It was time to mobe pass her. He couldn’t.  He would not. He was stuck and so was she. 

He went home feeling weary himself.he regreted what hapened. He ment no ofense. Mayby he had given too much thought to how clark and jacky thought and not enough of what she thought. He did not want to hurt her. He seemed to keep messing up when he came to her. He just could not seem to get it right.

It was gawing at him..intellectually he loved her more then he could describe. He had a terrible time showing it. He knew that.  He was messing up royalty. He could not seem to turn it around.  

He was faling in love with abby. She could not see it. She was right. He was not  being fair to her. He knew that. He knew it he kept things up at the rate he was going, he was about to loose her. He did not want that.  He did care about her. He did want to spend the rest of his life with her. Would he be able to get her to trust him in time? Right now it was not looking good. 

He had trouble getting to sleep that night. He got the feeling he had lost her and just did not know it. Either that or was unwiling to accept it. He finaly did get to sleep.

She cried herself to sleep that night. Why did she have to fall asleep with basically a widower.  If only she had not approached him. She had to be bubly abby. She had to be the friendly neighbor. It hot her hear. In love with someone who could not or would not commit to her.  

He had work quite early that day. He had cofee then headed off. He did not see her before he before he left. That was somewhat intentional. He wanted to give her her space.  

She was glad that he did not contact her. She wanted her space.  Not foever but for a little bit. She did like him. She wanted to be with him but she wanted some time apart. Not alot but a little. 

She showered.  She got ready for her day. There was a knock at her door. She opened it. To her suprise,it was pastor jeff ball and his wife wendy. 

“Hi. Come on in. ” abby said..they went to the couch. They sat down. He vot cofee for them. “We wanted to say hello.we  know your primary church is the penticostal church. You have been comming regularly  on wendsday and sunday night.  We wanted you to know that you are an importent part of the church. I dont want to step on the toes of the leadership at faith penticostal assambly but if you need anything from me or my wife please get in touch with us.”the pastor said.

“Thank you so much. I really appreciate that. That meens so very much. Everyone at the church has been great. ” she said.

“We are glad to hear that. “Wendy ball said. “Everyone is really glad you have been comming. ” the pastor said. “I have really enjoyed it. It is different from what i am used to but i do like it.” abby said. “Oh good. ” pastor ball said. 

“As i said, we are very glad that you are hear. “He said. “I am glad of that. “She said. “We are really pleased that you and andrew are together. You make a cute couple. “Wendy said.

She smiled. “I think so too. I really like him.”she told them. “We can tell. “The pastor said. “It is nice to see him smiling again. He is slowly beccoming himself again. “Wendy said. 

“I have noticed he is comming out of his shell. I did not know the old him but i have seen a difference. “She said.

“When i took over as pastor, he was a teeneger. We see saw him grow up. He was on the pastoral tract and after leane died,he shut down..he withdrew.  Now he is comming back. “Jeff said. “I can see that. I am glad of that. “Abby said. 

“The lord has always had his hold on his life. I beleved that the lord had a plan for him. It was too bad that he sat on the sidelines as long as he did. He does seem to be back. You might know that i might have to take a few mounths off. He might take over for me for a while. ” pastor ball said.

“He mentoned that. ” she said. “I hope he does go into the pastorate. I am doing all i can to encourage that. ” the pastor said. “As am i.” she said. 

“So. Do you think that you two might consider marriage in the furure?” wendy ball asked. “We have not seriously talked about it yet. We have discused it in general terms. I am definently supportive of that.  I would like to see us get maried one day. “She told them. 

“We would like to see that as well. ” pastor ball said. She smiled. Abby found everyone at the church to be very friendly. She and wendy ball would become very close. She made several connections with ladies at gospel Baptist church.  Wendy was one of her closest friendships. 

She had a good visit with the balls.she liked both the pastor and his wife. She was really glad that they came by.she was glad to visit them without andrew. She was glad to have some one on one time with them. 

She knew that she was becoming intertwined with andrew. She wanted that. She was having doubts.  She did not know how to handle it. 

She could not totaly blame andrew. Losing a loved one was devisating. He behaved like most would.  It was time to move on. She was growing weary. She was not sure that she could stick with this. She did want to. 

He got home from work in late afternoon. Her car was gone. He assumed she was at the flower shop. He was not sure what her schedule was for the day.  

He went inside. He was glad to be home. He had dinner. He had a good day at work but was glad to be home.he decided to go to the room he used as an office. He looked though some old surmons. He wanted to get some ideas. He was not one to repeat old surmons. He was hoping to het his juices flowing. 

He saw a surmon he never preached. He was suposed to preach the sunday morning that ended up being two days after leane died. Pastor ball ended up preaching that sunday instead. He was suposed to cabidate for a pastorate two sundays later. He cancelled that service and witndrew from consdieration. He had foregottem all of that.  He started having a panic attack.  So he put the message back in the file cabinent and closed the lid. 

He saw abby pul in. He ran outside. He hugged her. She saw him shaking. She grabbed on to him. 

They went over to the porch. They sat down on a swing on the porch. “I was looking at old surmons.  Trying to get some inspiration. I forgot that the sunday after ,well you know, i was suposed to preach. I could not do it. I had totaly forgotten about that. I found the surmon i was going to preach. It brought everything back. There is more.  I was suposed to canidate at a church two weeks after. I withdrew from consideration.  I shut down abb. I did use my greef as a cruch. I was in a funk.  I did not realize. ” he said. 

She put her arm around him. She rubbed his back. “Its going to be ok. You will get though this. ” she said. “I know.  It all hit me. ” he said. “It was bound to. ” she said. 

“I am ok now. It just really got to me.”he said.”its understandable babe. I love you so much. I am hear for her. I am not going anywhere i promise. “She said. 

Pastor ball decided to go with his wife to care for his mother in  Law. It was decided that he would leave in three weeks. That would give him time to prepare.

 “Look abby. I am very sory about not putting you first. I have alotof work to do.”he admitted.  “I forgive you. Thank you for comming to me the other day. I want to be there for you.  While your subing for.pastor ball. I am hear for you. I will pray for you not in tounges! Whatever you need ak. If yoi dont i will kick your but” she said.They laughed.he said ok.

 The day of the wedding got closer. Things were comming together. The church was shaping up. There was still much to do. 

The night before ,tracy ,amber and her mother conplied a list of things left to do. They put together a time table of when they wanted to get it done.

Tracy and amber got up fairly early. This had been there tradition thoughout the week. They got thr cofee ready.  Her mom came down the stairs. Tracy and amber said helo to her. 

“Mom! I know i have got a little out of hand this week. ” tracy said.”your excited about your upcoming wedding.you should be.its understandible.” her mom said. 

“How are you doung with all this?” tracy asked her mom. “Its been hard.it has been a little bit of an emotional roller coaster. I am ok. ” she said.

“I have wanted to talk to you about this.  I have been a bit self involved. I wanted to check up on you. ” tracy said.

“This week i have definently felt his absence. It is unavoidable. I knew it would.  I am not just thinking about the fact he is not hear. I have been thinking about the good times. ” she said. “There have been Manny? ” Tracy said. She smiled. “There have indeed.  ” her mom told her. 

“Its hard to see you growing up. Going on your own. I am proud of you trace. ” she said. Tracy huged her.”thanks mom. That meens alot. ” she said.

“You! Miss amber you beter not be a stranger! ” she told amber. “I wont. I will definently visit. I will keep in touch via phone and social media.  You cant get rid of me that easily.” amber said. “Good!” Tracy’s mom said. 

After a while matt arived.  He got some cofee.  “Hi mom. Hi trace hi amber.” he said.they all said hi back.he huged his mom. He huged her sister . it was unclear if he did this out of a paturn but he huged amber as well. Neither realized tbat they were hugging until they were well into it. They were both a little embarrassed.  Neither one really regretted it though. 

Neither one knew what to say.they both tried to move on from that action. Hopefully mom and tracy could overlook it.

Steve arived as well. Tracy and steve hugged. They had breakfast.then they left for the church. They all got together near the front of the church. They asembled for the morning brefing as it were. 

” ok midweek service is at 6:00. We need to stop at 4:30.  We have a lot to get done and not a lot of time to do it in.  ” matt said. 

“I want to have the dining hall today. We will need to tidy it up friday.the caterers wil arive. I want what we can get done now done today. Tomorrow we will push hard on the sanctuary.  I would love for downstairs to be totaly done.” tracy said. 

“I think we can. I just wanted to press that point.” he said. He led in prayer then they got to work. 

Matt and Steve finished up working on the lattice work.  They finished up the gate and made a door. The decorations on the wall was finished up. A cd player was brought in. During the reception,they would play instrumental sacred music. 

They put the finishing touches of downstairs felowship hall. Decorations were placed in the coridors as well. 

While decorarions and lattice work for the auditorium began. They started to lay the groundwork.  They would not set it up today but they would have it all ready to go the next day.  The more done today the better was the mood of everyone involved.  

They did some cleaning up and vacuming as well. Usualy the dining hall was used as prayer room on wendsday. Today upstairs room would be used. 

Alot had been accomplished.  Things were about where tracy wanted them to be. They had everything ready for the service and the work for the next days. The big push would occur Thursday and friday. There waa a rehearsal dinner held at there mom’s house and then the rehersial. Everything had to be done before then. Time would be of the essence.  Crunch time would be on Thursday morning. 

They left at four thirty.  They went home for supper. After dinner,they all got ready for the service. Amber went with him to the church.  They took some of the younger kids. 

As pastor , matt preached.  He got to the podium. ” i want to preach tonight on the unchanging God. Hebrews tels us that God is the same yesterday, today and foever. Our lord is consistent.  He is a God of order. He is a God of structure. Sometimes we read leviticus and we can get bodged down. The purpose of the book of leviticus to saw God is a God of order.he ordaned that israel his chosen nation would have distict laws. Thes laws are extensive.  It shows a system a structure. Some of these laws were ceremonial. God still has structure. Some cerimonial laws are not observed. Others are stil in place.  Murder is stil murder for example. ” he said.

“God is holly. Peater qaoting from the old testament said,’be holy for i am holy. ‘ God is holly is a concept that goes all the way from genises to revelation.  He is different. He is set apart. ‘numbers. 23:9 said ‘God is not a man that he should lie.nor the son of man that he should repent. ‘ God does not lie. That does not change. God is truthful.  Jesus said that he is the way truth and the life. Jesus also said that the truth will make you free. It is not just truth in general. The truth of who he is. ”

“We see that his promises do not change. He promised abraham that he would be a great nation. His seed will outnumber the stars. There was a belief that the covenant God made with Moses whitch was a conditional covenant superseded the Abrahamic covenant.  Paul in galations said that could not be further from the truth. On the cross jesus declared that it is finished. The author of hebrews said that christ is the author and finishers of our faith.  He has promised to never leave us or forsake us. We trust him because we see evidence of his unchanging nature. ” 

“I take comfort in his unchanging nature. I love his consistency.  We see that the lord if a person of his word. We live in an  unchanging world. Circumstances change. There are events we canot forsee. He loves us. He knows what is best for us. This church has changed. It started as a church of two families meeting at a laundry mat in to this building. My dad is now with the lord. Tracy is about to start her jouney. I know that God has an overal plan. I trust in that.i am thankfull for it.”matt said.  

The men and women separated into groups. After the prayer time the guys talked for a bit. ” so who is next to get maried in your family?” Charlie a deacon asked.  “I want to get though this wedding.  Probably joel or Philip.  Perhaps merisa. ” he said.

“Not our young pastor? ” an older man named henry asked. “It could happen i supose. Right now i do not forsee it but i gues it could happen.  ” he said.

“You and that young lady who is Tracey’s maid of hournor is not the future mrs pastor davis?” charlie asked. He blushed a bit. “The lord knows what is best. I am sure that if i am to be maried ,it will be the best choice.” he said. 

Amber prayed with tracy,her mom and a few other ladies. “We are so excited for this wedding! ” elsa an older lady said. ” thanks. We are too. “Tracy said.

“It is really coming together.  “Tracy mom said.”i can see that.” the older lady said. “So who is the nect Davis to be maried? ” another lady asked. ” i think the pastor is the next davis child who will be maried. ” tracy said. Amber tried not to blush. 

“I can see that. ” amber said. They laughed. Amber was surprised that tracy said that. 

When they walked back upstairs amber talked to tracy. “You realy think that matt will get maried next ?”amber asked.  “I realy do! ” she answered. 

After a closing remarks thr service was concluded. The davis returned to her house. Matt sat on the porch. Amber came out. ” lost in thought? ” amber asked. ” a little! Tonight was the last time our family in its current form will go to church. So Manny changes.  Seems like yesterday i played in the dirt over there. ” he said.

“I cant imagine you playing in the dirt.” amber said. “I loved playing in the dirt. I loved playing with toy trucks. One of the advantages of having young brothers is i can play with trucks with them. Of course when they go down for a nap i have to stop. ” he said. 

“I wont tell anyone? ” amber said. He laughed. “Alright! ” he said.”i loved your mesege tonight.  I know it was from the heart!” she said. “I had trouble coming up with a messege . i was a bit distracted.  My message camebout of my feelings. It started comming together.  ” he said.” i know the lord will use it. ” amber said. “I definently hope so. I too believe it will.” he said.

“You ok?” she asked. “Yes i am. I am just feeling melancholic.  I think i am just tired. I am happy how the wedding preperation is going. I think it is exhaustion.  ” she said. ” ok.i just wanted to make sure. ” she said. 

After a while matt decided to go to his place. He was ready for bed. Amber walked him to his car. He hugged her. “Good night!” he said. “Goodnight!” she said.

End of sorrow part 9

Previously on end of sorrow.

Abby a penticostal reaches out to her neighbor. Andrew lost his fiancé just weeks before the weddings.  He was reluctant to agree with it at first.  He finally agred to see her formerly. 

They went to the first resturant they went to. “I had no idea you were planing something like this.” he said.

“Neither did i ! It was kind of an impulse thing. I felt like we should celebrate it. It is a huge milestone for us. ” she said. 

“It really is. It is a new beginning.  ” he said. “I feel that way too. I really like you. I am really excited by the prospects of our relationship.  ” she said.  “I am too. I realy like you. Its nice to have companionship again. Some times you dont realize that you dont have something until you have it. ” he said.

“Its strange, i am always around people. I sometimes keep people at arms laungh. Though i am bubly and a people person, i still tend to be somewhat standoffish. Not with you. I am very comfortable around you. ” she said. 

“I can tell your different around me. I am glad that your feel free when your around me. ” he said. “I really do. ” she told him. 

“You have brought me out of my shell. I am not quite the old me but i am getting closer.  ” he said. “I dont think your mearly as serious  as you let on. I imagine if i gave you a skirt gun , i would be a goner. ” she said. “Yes! You dont want to see me with a skirt gun unless  you have one and a large shield!” he said. 

“You do have a silly side?” she asked. “I do. I am have six siblings. Manny of them are young. You kind of have to be silly. ” he said.

“I have a feeling that you are naturaly silly. “She remarked. “Perhaps! ” he said. They laughed. 

“So are you thinking about getting back to ministry. I know your serving the lord. Have you considered going back to the tract you were on? ” she asked.  “I have. I do still have a desire to start churches. ” he said. “I thought that you did. I know you still preach and teach sunday school. I cant believe the lord wants you to sit on the side lines. ” she said.

“I know your right. ” he said. “As i said on our first date, its time to get back to work. Its time to get out of the funk. ” she said. “I know. I am getting there. I really am getting there. ” he said.”good.  I thought you were. ” she said. 

“Your right i used the mourning as a crutch.  I used it as an excuse.  I got used to being in a funk. It became normal comfortible. ” he said.

“Its understandable.  I am glad you see it that way. I am glad that you are giving it up. I am glad to see your moving on. I have to warn you that i am always blunt. If i disagree with something you will know it.” she said.”i am not surprised. ” he said.

“Having said that i will always keep it private. I will discus it with you in private. ” she said. “I figured. I appreciate that. ” he said. 

” you have a lot of potential.  You have a lot of gifts. I want to see you serving the lord. I want you to live up to that potential. I believe that sometimes the battle is not between right and wrong but between right and somewhat right. Dont settle for good enough. I think you know thats what you been doing. ” she said.

“You are right. That is what i have been doing. Its funy i have preached messages along those lines. I think the old me would have a bone to pick with me. I dont want to settle.  I rally dont. ” he said.

“I know that. I wont let you. I know you will keep me honest as well. ” she said. ” i am on the road back. ” he said.”i know you are. I can see that. ” she said.

“So we discussed the posibility of us one day marrying. We both agreed that we need to go slow. We need to take baby steps. Do you see yourself marrying me. Can you picture it? “She asked. 

“Yes i definitely can. I do want to marry you. ” he told her. “Good . i realy want to marry you. I am downright smitten with you andy. ” she said.

Andrew never considered marying anyone else but liane.  He never dated anyone but liane. She was the only person he had had a romantic involvement with. When he had been young there was a girl he told he wanted to marry. He had no idea what her name was. He bearly remembered the event. 

He never even thought about thanking about someone besides liane. When liane died he really was committed to being single all his life.that commitment became stronger.  Even when he met abby. Even when they started to become closer friends. 

Now he was open to marrying her. He was surprised.  He was not expecting this. He was definitively not seaking it. Never the less, hear it was. 

“Why are you so smiten with me ab? I am ptety boring. I am old fashoned. I dont own a tv. I listen to old hyims and a collection of sacred mysic from my college.  I am a cessationest. I sometimes think i am a little dull. Why me?” he asked.

She laughed.she smiled. “I dont know.  I cant explain it. I just am. I did not plan it. It happened. Your not that dull.  ” she said.  “My ant farm might disagree with you. ” he said. She shock her head. They both laughed.

“So i could ask the same of you.  Why do you like me? I am bubly outgoing. I love to dance, listen to klove, own a tv. I am a bit mischievous at times. ” she said.  

” i love spending time with you. I juat do. I am glad your in my life. ” he said. She smiled. 

After a while they paid then went to the car. Then they headed home. She parked. They got out of the car. “I had a great time tonight. ” he told her. “I did too. This was i hoped tonight would go. This was better really.” she said. He hugged her. They said goodnight and went there temporary separate ways. 

The next morning andrew was suposed to be at work at ten am. He slept in until nine. He had plenty of time but he usualy got ready at a leisurely pace. He showered, drank cofee got ready and left.

He was hatdly late but he was a bit frazzled. He forget to get his phone. His work is  far from his apartment but when he Was at work, he stayed there until his shift was over. 

Despite the dificut start to the day,it went fairly well. He was,whoever happy to be home. He pulled in. Abby was waiting for him. She was wearing jeens whitch usualy ment she was miffed with him.she had been crying.

“Are you upset about something ab?”he asked. “Where have you been?”she asked. “I was at work!”he said.  “Why didn’t you return any of my calls or texts or messages? “She asked. “I was in a rush this morning and left mt phone at home. I dont go home while on lunch breaks. ” he said.

“Why is it every time you and i have a major break though, you have to go backyards.  Why do you have to be so unstable? ” she asked. 

” i am not having doubts about us. I really did leave my phone at home.  “He said.”you live a mile from your home.  Why bot just go get it?”she asked. “I dont like to leave the premises..even on lunch. ” she told him. “I was woried that we were going too fast. I feard you would go inward again. I figured you had.  ” she said. 

“Abby i am ok. I am not having second thoughts about us. “He said. “Do you still feel like your being unfaithful  to liane?”she asked. “I would be lying if i said i did not feel that a little. I know its irational. “He said. 

“When are you going to be afraid of hurting my feelings.  When are you going to be concerned about being faithfull to me? Don’t you dare say when we are maried. If you dont do it now,  you wont do it later.” she said. 

“Your right.your right on all acounts. Abie i do care about you. Your feelings are importent to me.  I am sorry. I gues not consider your feelings today. ” he said.

” your not bound to liane any more. You are free to marry. I know you wanted to be a one women man.  She is gone. She is not going to come back. Your obligation to  her has passed. ” she told her. 

“I know that. ” he said.”i dont want to play second fiddle.  I dont want to be a consolation price. I dont want to win you by default. I feel like i am the runner up who is declared the winner after the predecessor is disqualified.  Look i have dated guys before you. They dont matter to me. You are my soul mate. No one else. You dont see it that way. ” she said.

He hugged her. “Your not a consolation prize. ” he told her. “The truth is if leane was stil alive and you had met me, i would not be an afterthought. ” she said.

She started to cry. He held on to her. “If your going to mary me,you have to let her go. I dont want to compete with anyone especially a ghost. I cant do it. The vows say forsaking all orthers. Thats what i want. ” she said.

“I know and i agree. ” he said. She held on to him. “I was going to surprise you with lunch but i got upset. ” she said. “Its fine. ” he said. “Do you like tuna fish? ” she asked. “I do. ” he said. 

“I will be back. ” she said. “Ok. ” he said. She walked upstairs to her apartment.  A few minutes she came back out with a plate of sandwitches. She had changed into a skirt. They went to a picnic table. 

“Oh you might want to ster clear of the more recent meseges. Im sorry. ” she said.  “I am sory i was inconsiderate. ” he said. ” bring your phone to work tomorrow.  ” she said “will do. ” he said.

Sorow uppon sorow part three

U.s.s enterprise 

Conference room. 

At the confrence room was the captain,bienka the first officer,dr. Piper,chief enginer hallak,dr. Daner, commander giotto,lt. Guterez,kolona ,comnander jessep,terasha,xi romulan sub commander and yeoman Smith. 

“Our misson is diplomatic.we are paying our respect.  “The captain said. “Klingon beleve the sprit dies at death. The body is am empty shell.usualy the body is disregarded with little fanfare. We dont have any protocol. “Giotto said.

“When we arive i intend to meat with our ambassador at the embasy and with a representative of the foregn ministry. Bary,aaron i want you two to accompony me to the embasy. “The captain said. “Chamche is lovly this time of year.”giotto said. 

“I know this seams a little tidious.this could be a big step in shoring up our aliience with them. Sub commander,doctor xi i assume you will want to meet with your embassies.  “The captain said. 

“Ate they holding a funeral of some short. What exactly are wr doing?”dr. Piper asked. “At this point mark your guess is as good as myine. “Ben told the doctor.  

“Figures. “Dr. Piper said. “Once i have consulted with thr embasy, i should have a bettet idea of what is going on. “Ben said. 

He asked for any further questions. There was none. The meating was ajurned. “Why is kalera not hear?”terasha asked. “She has asked for time off. I saw no reason notto grant it. “He said.”thats not like her. She takes her ambassadorial duties quite seriously.  ” Terasha said. “She needed some time off. It happends!”ben said.

“Is everything ok?”terasha asked. “Off course. “Ben said.ben knew the real answer was i dont have a clue.”well tell her if she needs anything to call me!”terasha said.”i will do that. “Ben said. 

Qurters of kalera and ben

While vulcans tried to purge themselves of all emotions,romulons did not. It was on there terms. They wete stoic. They controlled there emotions more then humans. They hated being vanutable.

Kalera did not want to be seen as weak.she had bot planed to cry like this. After the first tear came,they all folowed. She cried and cried. 

Sickbay

Kalera enteted.”lori can i help you?”Christine asked. “Can you perfrom a physcial on me?”she asked.”usually i have to bad crewman for physical. Get on the bio bed.”dr. Piper said.she did so.”is anything wrong?”chepel asked.”im not sure. I have felt tired. No real lack of enurgy.”she said.

Dr. Piper had the device scan her. It took several readings.  “Am i ok?she asked. “Your perfectly fine.what do we have hear?”dr. Piper asked. “What is it?” she asked.

“It seams you and the captain are expecting.”dr. Pipper said. She was confused. “Expecting what? “Lori asked. “Your going to have a baby!”chepel said.

Her mind went back. She was at her family esate near ki bartan. She saw a male rihansu. “I have news zerek. “She said in a matter of fact tone.he was surprised.”what news is that? “He asked.

“Your going to be a farther. I know that tou wanted to wait but it seams the multi verse had other plans. “She said.he smiled. He hugged her.”then this is the correct time. ” he said.

“You really feel that way?”she asked. “Of course.”he said. Lori and zerek were part of an aranged mariege.she was the daughter of an admiral turnes senator. He was the son of senator and leader of a noble house.his morther was the president of the university of ki bartan. 

Her memories jumped.  “Im sory . your child did not survive. “The doctor said. She screamed.zerek tried to hold her but she pushed him away.  

“I have been asked to return to space dutty. I am to become first officer of one of the new class of birds of preys.  “He said. “Your leaving now?”she asked.”this is a big opportunity lori. It could lead to command.  ” zerek told her.

“You cant leave now zerrek!”she said.”why?you dont talked to me any more. You have totaly closed yourself off. Does it really matter i i stay or go?”he asked. 

“I regreet to inform you that zerek was killed in an altracation with orion pirates.”her farther told her. She did not cry until het farther was gone form the home.

“Lori! Lori you ok?”christiane asked. “Yes i am fine. I got lost in thought. “Lori said. 

“Your not happy about this? “Christine asked.”no i am christine.doctor you know my medical history. Is there a chance that what hapened to my first child could happen to this baby?”she asked.

“So far she seams perfectly healthy. I am considering this at risk pregnancy.  That is just before i want to be careful.  I have never lost a baby in forty years of practicing madicine and i dont intend to start now.”piper said. 

“She?”kalera asked.” yes it is a she.”dr. Piper said.”do i not need to worry? “Kelera said.”please dont.leave the worrying to me. Making sure your daughter is healthy is a sacred responsiblity. One i do not take lightly.”he told her.she tried to stay posistive.it was not easy. 

“Would you like to talk to liz?”chepel asked. “I would. “Kalera said. “I will arange it.”piper said.

She was clearly shaking. What should be welcome news was troubling for her. She had tried to bury those feelings but now she could not block them now. She wanted to be a mommy. She wanted a child.  The fear was too overwhelming.  

Corridor 

Ben had changed into a green dress uniform.  Jessep wore a yellow dress uniform and giotto wore a red dress uniform. They entered the transporter room.

“Do you have the coordinates mr. Kyile?”ben asked. “I do sir. “Kyile said. The three set foot on the transporter pad. “Energize mr. Kyile. “The captain ordered.

The transporter operator activated the controls. The captain and his two advisers were transported off of the ship and on to the planet. 

Federation embasy

Qamche

Capital citty 

“Im ambassador richard Charleston.  “He said. “Captain Benjamin norris,my diplomatic officer lt commander Aaron jessep and secuity chief barry giotto. “He said. 

“This is brojok he is a deputy minister in the foregn ministry. He is our liasion. “The ambassador said.

“Tomorrow at 1900 houers your time,the chancellor will be making a fornal adress in the old trown square. Diplomats from orther governments are invited to attend. The chancellor will be formerly declaring a empire wide sate of mourning.  1900 the following day the chancellor will be holding a formal cerimony cermemorating the event. The entire planet will watch from monitors. As will the empire. The chancellor will be making comments.  We rarely do funerals. It will be very ad hawk as it were. “The klingon oficial said. 

“We will attend both events. ” ben said. “We ask that your people only attend the sectioned events.other then that we ask that you remain on the ship other then for momorial events and momorial locations. This is a solom event not a time for sight seing. ” the official said. 

“We respect that. We will adhere to whatever protical you mandate. You have my word on that. “Ben informed him. 

The oficial seemed uncomfortable. He seemed like he found this job tidious. Some klingon might resent the idea of a sate funeral given klingon attutudes in death and burial.  Some might object to the child of a chancellor given special treatment. Probably brozek wanted to be out on the battlefield not shuffling papers in the foregn ministry.  Ben tried to make this quick and painless. He tried to be an ally. 

Enterprise 

Kelera went into the turbolift. She saw Spock.  “Mrs. Norris.” spock said “lt. Spock.”she said. “Are you well? “The vulcan asked. “Yes i am fine.  Do i appear otherwise? ” she asked.  “I have been detect deviation from personal norms. “Spock answered.  “Have i deviated from my usual norm?” she asked. “A little bit.  ” he said.  

“I have i gues. I am just trying to short things out. ” she said. “Of course. That is understandible. I was nearly reciting an observation not giving a value judgment. “The vulcan said. 

The door opened. She said her goodbye. He did as well. She headed for the office of the senior psychologest. 

“Your not happy about being pregnent? Dr. Elizabeth daner commented. “No i am liz. I have wanted a child for some time. I love ben. I would love for us to have a family.  I am just woried . mt fear of losing her overwhelms any excitement i might have. ” kalera admitted.  

“I spoke to mark. He is confidebt that the pregnentcy is going as it should. He is confident that you can carry her to term. “Liz said.

“I know i am being irarional. It was a few years ago but it feels like it happened yesterday. I cant shake my fears liz. “Kalera said. 

“Lori i am not asking you to. Fear is holding you back.  I understand why your doing it. Dont miss this experience.  “Liz said.

“I know . “she said. “Have you told ben?”she asked. “Not yet. He has been prery busy with the situation on qonos. “She said. 

“It cant be easy. I am sure that mukaret losing his son must be proving to be almost a trigger. “Liz observed. 

“It has not helped.  It is the talk of the ship and thats understandible. Right now this is the misson.  It is stil hard.  ” she admitted.  “This is different from your son’s death.  This is different fron what hapened to the chancellor’s son. ” liz said. “I really hope so. “She said.

End of part three.

U.s.s. enterprise

Bridge 

The turbo lift door opened,the captain entered the Bridge. He apeared to be very tired. “Captain on the brudge. “Yeoman smith said.”as you were. “The captain said. 

“Good morning captain. ” first officer bianka weber said. “good morning bianka. “He said. “You ok sir you look asked?”smith asked.”i am fine. “He said.

“Captain you have an incoming mesege from star fleet command.”com officer kolona announced.  

Ben Norris asked for an ear peace. He had the com officer transfered to an empty station far back. He activated the screen. On the View screen ,the image of admiral komack.the admiral was in his office on earth.

“Hello admiral. Good morning. “Norris told the admiral. “Morning ben. On qonos the wife of chancelor mukaret gave birth to twins a boy and a girl. The boy died slightly died after he was born. The chancelor has declared a empire wide day of mourning.  ” the admiral said.

“I thought klingons usualy regard the body an empty shell upon death. They take little care to the remains upon death. “He said.

“The chancelor has no male hair. While the chancelor is a non heraditory post. The leadership of a house is heraditory.  It is a matter of hoyrnor. On qonos male are valued over females. The chancelor has wanted a son for a while. The chancelor has reqested we send a deligation to qonos to pay there respect. I would like to send the enterprise. ” komack said.

“I would be happy to go. I have been able to develop a good working relationship with the chancelor. “Ben said.

“I figured you would.  It is a simple misson. It is important.  Our alliance with the klingons has always been murky . it was a marriage of convenience.  The klingons had a noose wraped around there neck.they had no choice.  We have had to walk a tight rope with them. ” komack said.”i am aware of that. “He said. “This could go a long way to maintaning this difficult relationship.  “Komack said.

“I understand my reaponsibility. ” ben said.”i know you do. We will keep in touch. No pressure but the sate of federation diplomacy may rest on your shoulders.  “The admiral said. “It usualy does.”ben said.

“You will do fine. I have conplete confidence in you.  Star fleet out. “He said. The image went from sanfrancisco to the seal of the united federation of planets.then the screen went dark.he turned the screen off. 

He took off the ear peace. He gave it back to the com officer. “We have new orders. We ate going to qonos.it is a diplomatic misson. “He said 

“Carlos alter course. Best speed to qonos. “Bianka ordered. Lt. Carlos guitetirz alteted the course. “Course ploted and laid in.” the helm officer announced.  

“Aaron i want to take point on this.coordinate with thr embassy on qonos and the klingon foregn ministry. For all intense and purposes this is a sate funeral.  Please acess both federation and klingon protical. “Ben said.

“You got it ben. I will get right on it.”he told the captain.  “Terasha get with your government.  Liasion with Aaron. “He said. “Will do. “She said. 

” i will inform kalera. Bianka you have the bridge. “Ben ordered.”aye sir.”she said. He excited the bridge. The door closed. 

Corridor. 

“Kalera! “Ben said. “Since you refer to me by ny full name i assume this is oficial bussiness? ” she said.”it is. It invovles your posisiton as hughest rihansu oficial on bored. “Ben said.”whats up?”she asked. 

“I am sure yout government will be contacting you.  We are going to qonos on a diplomatic misson. The chancellor “s wife gave birth to two children. One male obe female.  The male did not survive. We are going to pay our respects. “He said.

“What happened “she asked. “I am not sure. We were not given alot of details.  “Ben said. 

Sudenly her mind wandered.  She saw herself.  She was in a bed. She saw a man near her. It was a rihansu. 

Several doctors and nerses came in. “Its time. “The man said. “It looks like it is.”the nurse said. 

After a hard and long delivery the baby was born. The baby did not live  long. The husband was stoic.  She screamed.

“Lori you ok. You zoned out for a bit.”ben said. “Im fine. I will check my messages. I will get with my government. “She said.”lori are you sure your alright?”ben asked.  “Yes i am fine Benjamin.  “She said.she moved on and walked on. 

Badge. 

Kalera went over to ben. “Hey!”he said smiling.”hi i am about to blur the lines between your role as my husband and commanding officer of the ship. “She said.

“Ok!what is it?”ben asked. “I spoke to my government.  I requested sub commander rombest who is the seccond sr most romulan on the ship to lead the deligation to chamche. They were not happy but they aproved it. They want your aproval. “She said.

“It is a diplmatic matter. It is a formality.  He is a sr officer. Like a lt commandeer in star fleet. It is stil senior level. I will approve it. “Ben said. 

“Thanks. “She said.”i dont understand why. You usualy rise to the ocasion for these thngs. “He said.”i have my reasons. It is a pribate matter. “She said. “Even from me?” ben asked.”i would rather not discus it. “She said.

He was taken aback. She usually opened up to him. They were an open book to eachother. She was suprisesd that she was keeping something from him.something that was clearly troubling her. He had no idea what it was or why she did not want to talk about it. 

“Um we dont really need a science advisor on this misson.can i take a few days off?”she asked. “Yes of course. Take all the time you need.  “He said.

“Thank you. Permission to leave the bridge.”she asked. “Granted.”he said. He tried to say more but she was halfway out the door. She excited the bridge.  

That was the first time in quite a while that they did not say i love you to eachother.  It was the first time they had not kissed even on the cheek. They always showed efection. Not this time. 

“Is everything alright?”dr. Elizabeth daner asked. “I dont know.” the captain said.

Kalera went back to there qurters.she went to the bedroom. She just started to cry. She kept crying .

“We are now in klingon space.  ” the navigator reported. “Mantain course for qonos present speed. “The captain ordered.

End of part two.

The enterprise arives on qonos. Kalera gets news. 

I decided not to include jim kirk or addison mccomic. Those characters tend to grandstand. I want to this to be totaly dedicated to ben and kalera.  I created some charicters to fill in the gaps.
