Early the next morning, Ethan was deep in thought.
“Melina, you’re going to have to slow down soon, you know. You’re working full time and you do everything at home. And the cooking. And the baking. You spoil me rotten.”
“Yes, that’s my goal. A rotten husband.”
“Be serious! Let some of this ride for a while. I only want you to feel good and be healthy. I don’t care about anything else. I don’t care if I have to eat Chinese take-away three nights a week.”
“I care! And the baby and I have to eat healthy.”
“Very well then, how about the laundry. I can do up the laundry. I know how to load the machine and push the buttons.”
“Yes, but how about sorting? The last time you did the laundry, you washed our red beach towels with your white underwear. Remember?”
“Yes,” he laughed, “and I had to wear pink underpants, which really isn’t such a big issue when one keeps one’s clothes on. Melina, I insist. And I promise I’ll sort. Whites from reds. Okay? No more carrying laundry baskets downstairs. Or carrying them back up. From this moment on, I am in charge of all the laundry in this house. Agreed?”
“Ethan! I’ve never known you to worry about anything in your life.”
“Well, I am now. I’m worried about you, he said.” She moved over and cuddled up in next to him.
“You dear sweet man, don’t worry.” He held her close and kissed her head and her neck.
“I’m afraid, Melina. I’m scared to death I’m going to lose you.”
“You aren’t going to lose me.”
