Time Runs Short, Part 10
"Wake up," a faint voice called through cloudy thoughts. Leela tried
to hold on to the voice but it faded away. "Wake up," it called again.
This time, Leela held on to it lightly through her clouded mind. She didn't respond
till the voice called her again. She sat up slowly and opened her eye.
"Hey, beautiful," he said, sitting at the end of her bed.
"What happened?" she asked slowly and wearily.
"You fainted again, the doctors had to operate on you in your side."
"Oh, so.I lived?" she asked, looking at her hands.
"Yup.and... I... I... I'm a father!" Fry said, and took one of her
hands and gave it a reassuring squeeze.
"Y-y-you mean?" she asked.
"So.we did.that night.at that X-Mas party.didn't we?" Leela said,
thinking back on that night two weeks ago.
* * flash back* *
"Oooow...my head," Leela groaned, thinking she was sitting in her
bed. She looked beside her and gasped.
"Wake up! Wake up!" Leela said, practically yelling at the person
next to her.
"Wha? Oooow.my head," Fry said, sitting up. He looked next to himself
and gasped at what he saw.
"Did we?" Leela asked, about ready to scream.
"I don't know. We were both drunk.so neither of us remembers."
"What if we didn't? Maybe.we just both passed out.and.uhh."
"Calm down. okay.and if we did.we both know it was an accident, right?"
* * end flash back * *
"Oh god... I... I .. don't know what to say, it's so.shocking."
"Yea, but we're gonna have to get through it together," Fry said.
He was now holding both of her hands.
"I love you," she said, smiling.
"And I love you, too," he said, kissing her forehead.
