Before Gemma knew it she was downing chicken McNuggets with the new chili sauce at lunch.
"See, nothing to it. I'm famished." Gemma smiled sweetly at Lyle.
"How can you stand that wretched stuff?" Lyle squinted.
"I told you," Gemma stared at him. "I'm famished."
"I still think you should take the test." He looked at her seriously.
"Just to amuse you Is that it?" Gemma slightly fummed. "I'm fine. OK."
"Yeah." He didn't smile though.
"What is it then?" Something was on his mind.
"My mother." He looked back at Gemma then. "She gave me a hard time about this and everything down at the shop." He stole a fry then and bit into it.
Gemma couldn't help but smile then.
"If she only knew." Gemma sighed.
"Knew what." He wasn't taking this as a laugh. He winced hard then. "Bugger! She was after one of those test too. Fuck! Me Mum's pregnant!"
Gemma laughed hard then as she bit into a fry. Thank god, it was his mum and not her.
