“Matilda, we’ve always said, no secrets between us. Please talk to me. If it’s important to you, it’s important to me.”

“I’ve been trying to get pregnant, ever since Becky found out. I guess I was jealous that she was having a baby and I wasn’t. I quit taking the hormone shots. I wanted to surprise you.”
“Nothing would make me happier than you and me having a baby, Matilda. How long were you on those shots? You know they have a residual effect that can go on for years.” He snapped his lips shut, realizing he wasn’t making her feel any better.
