Mrs. Brown bangs on the door and yells out
Mrs. Brown- Sonya are you there, I just saw you pull in earlier, I have something for you honey.

Sonya opens the the door and tries to hide her hurt with a smirk
Sonya- hey Mrs. Brown, I didn't hear you knock I was napping its a long day.
Mrs Brown smiles as a response and tries to open the screen door, Sonya flicks the switch on the screen door to let her in.
Mrs. Brown- well were you going to let me in?...here this cake is for you, i come here to clean up.
Sonya tries to grab Mrs. Brown a she proceeds to the front room
Sonya- Oh no, you don't have to do that Mrs. Brown I'm perfectly fine
Mrs. Brown- Well from the looks of it you're not, look like my momma would always tell me don't turn your blessings because its just rude to God, you just go and relax baby i got this.
Sonya was becoming a little aggravated she thought to herself the last thing she needed was an overbearing nosy neighbor around when she was in so much pain.
Sonya- NO LIKE I SAID I AM PERFECTLY FINE!
Mrs. Brown turns around and faces Sonya, she had never heard her yell before like that, she could her the frustration and pain in her voice, she noticed as Sonya grab her stomach and almost loss her balance. Mrs. Brown hurried to assist her to the couch...Sonya began crying
Mrs. Brown- honey are you okay, you should'nt keep all that pain bottled up inside once you share it, you'll find that it was to much for you , now let me go and get you some water
Sonya grabs the glass and whispers
Sonya- thank you, Its okay he kicked me kinda hard
Mrs. Brown- uh huh boys are quite a challenge to carry, my son use to kick me so much I thought hehad three feet.
Mrs. Brown grabbed tissue out of her pocket and sat next to Sonya on the couch, and dabbed the tears out her eyes.
Mrs. Brown- let it out child its okay to cry, its when we don't cry that worries the soul, when i lost my husband 10 years ago, the first person I lashed out at was God.
Sonya looked up at her surprised
Sonya- Really Mrs. Brown, how did you survive, what did you do, how did you start from hurting
Mrs. Brown- well you never stop from hurting but you must start by living, a loss from a love one is a terrible thing to experience, but you got this baby you have to be strong for, a part of your husband lives on in him, my son is the splitting image of his dad.
Sonya- but its not the same, it hurts, I don't have a job, I'm pregnant, bills are pilling up, the insurance money will be spend before I get it, I'm just so tired of worrying, crying, and crying and worrying feels like my world is flip upside down, we went to church together, planned on getting a better place he was up for a promotion, i really wanted to work but he insist i waited til the baby got older, he was always there to protect me and care for me, he was my angel and now he's gone, how could God do this me to us
Sonya begin crying again
Mrs. Brown- hold on to those memories dear, I know, because sometimes life deals us a bad hand, it doesn't mean you ain't got no play in you left, I was married to that man for 30 years and when I lost my husband, I thought to myself it had might as well been me laying in that casket with him, but see i had to make a decision was I going to let a part of me die with him, or was I going to grab all the memories and time we had live with me, because i had a son grandkids God kept me here for a reason and as much as I had to fight with it my husband time here with me was up.
