Coming early

FutureTense3The baby was due in 2 weeks. Family and friends came together to celebrate its upcoming birth and organized a huge fun party for mom and dad-to-be. A co-ed, kid-friendly baby shower.

Everyone was happy and, after a couple hours of chatting, fun, guessing and dreaming about baby’s future, it was time to open the gifts.

For every little piece of apparel, all ladies would voice an “Awwwwnnn” in unison. Mom-to-be was trying to understand the usage of some of the baby gadgets. The kids were excited and everyone seemed to speak joyfully at the same time.

Then, in the middle of the noise, her water broke.

This post was also written in response to the 100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups – Week#169, with the prompt: then, in the middle of the noise.

I had already created one story for the prompt, in Silence. But Silence was about death so I decided to try again, writing about life.

So there you go, 2 different views for the same prompt… ;o)
