"Are you sure you're OK?" Rachel wanted to know. Charlotte just couldn't get her to stop hoovering and that belly of hers was fierce at every move.
"Wow, have you gained weight?" Charlotte changed the subject.
"No." Rachel shook her head.
"Are you sure?" Charlotte winced. "You haven't been going to Wendy's have you?"
Rachel had to think for second. Charlotte made one little move and Rachel was in her nice chair at her desk. Right where Charlotte wanted her.
Rachel was in a huff now.
"Don't worry, it'll be our little secret," Charlotte smiled. "I know how you have Parker wrapped around your little finger and how he will always bring you those vanilla frosties."
Rachel just looked up from her black rimmed glasses at Charlotte.
"You're really not having a baby?" Rachel looked so disappointed.
"No. Sorry. Not me." Charlotte shook her head.
"And nothing is going on with you and Derrick?"
"Not gonna." Charlotte sighed.
"Look, do you want me to do that extra henna tattoo class or not?" Charlotte had to keep her on track. The summer reading program was coming to an end here. "I know we can't get Derrick back here for our little after party and the big Twilight Give Away, but I've been talking to Floyd and he and Rosco would be glad to have a little jamming session for us over at the school auditorium. We have it reserved, you know."
"And who would we get to sing on such a short notice?" Rachel crossed her arms.
"Gordy." Charlotte smiled and she saw Rachel's belly move. "Gordy." She said again. And her stomach wiggled. Charlotte laughed. "Gordy."
"He has a enough on his mind right now, you know." Rachel scowled.
"I know." Charlotte sighed. "But this might a breather for him, you know. Kal said he would. I just want to see them all together, again."
"But what about all those Derrick fans?" Rachel glared.
"Its a free concert."
