Zoë sat on the sofa and tried to concentrate on what Luka
and Misha were saying. Ever since Luka had come home saying that Misha would
love to be their surrogate, her thoughts and emotions had gone haywire. She had
given up the notion of having more children after Zephyr, but now her dreams
were haunted with images of a little girl or boy with Luka’s eye and her hair.
And seeing Luka with Coe had made her realize just how much they both did want
a child. She just wasn’t sure what it would be like watching someone else
With Misha being a family friend it also became easier, but more complicated. She would always be in the baby’s life and theirs, and yet there was security. Zoë just did not know what to think, the only thing she knew was they had to try.
She tried again to listen to them talk and to voice her own opinions. It was agreed that Sage would be Misha’s primary doctor, they would pay her tuition fees, and that everything else would be discussed when it became necessary. And with a phone call to their IVF doctor on the mainland, who had time for them the following day, her life took another twist she never expected.
She may finally have Luka’s child.
