Rebecca 2


"I didn't know I was pregnant! I swear!" My boss looked at me with furious eyes while listening to my explanation. "I swear! I didn't even know I could have a kid..."
 

My husband, George, stood beside me smiling. Weird, I thought. For a man who knew his wife was diagnosed infertile. Why those smiles?
 

"It looks like you will have to find someone else to go on mission this time. I am taking her home," George told my boss, "to have our first kid."
 

George and I were schoolmates in a University and we studied Astrophysics and Astrobiology respectively. He had not been able to get me ro marry him till his third proposal when he simply said, "Just help me..." I did not notice that he had also said "...and another person" at the same time.

I was touched by his persistence and determination to be with me despite the fact he knew I was born with a defective womb. Anything he said or did at the time was not as important.
 

During our marriage, having kids was never a subject we talked about or thought about, at least I didn't. I thought he would have given up trying to make me pregnant by now, if he did think about it. As I was either not pregnant, or miscarried in the first three years of our marital life. We just did whatever a couple would love to do. Life was fine and sweet.
 

But now I am pregnant!? How could I explain it, if I knew I was clean on my loyalty to him? George's smiles confirmed that he trusted me. But how?
 

George saw my bewildered face. H told that me before he decided to marry me, he had dreamed of a nice, blond girl in a football shirt, many times. This girl told him, “I want to be your kid, and my Mom's name is Rosa.”
 

And there was only one Rosa he knew and that was me.
 

He also told me the girl called herself "Rebecca."
