"I look horrible."

Margaret scowled at her reflection as she modeled the new black pantsuit she'd bought for Alan's company party in front of the mirror.

At seven months pregnant there was no hiding her big round belly, and even though the velvet fabric was lovely, the top hung on her in a very unflattering manner.

Alan walked in and Margaret could see him in the doorway, staring entranced back at her in the mirror.

He walked up to her and slid his arms around her from behind as he continued to gaze lovingly at her reflection.

"You look beautiful."

Author Notes
Very special thanks to iolsai for her beta work on this fic and to 1trackmind for talking me out of deleting it when I expressed a lack of confidence in the first draft. I rarely rewrite drabbles, but it took three tries to get this one to something I was willing to publish.

Thanks. I really enjoy writing them. I love a challenge and the forced economy of the 100 word limit.

I appreciate you taking the time to comment on them.

OMG I remember that feeling!

Margaret's so lucky to have Alan. I hope I find one like him one day!

Yeah, having a man who loves your body regardless is a wonderful thing. :-)

Alan's a great guy so he'd for sure be a great husband and father. I did like that they kept him human (the jealousy thing during Princeton) because otherwise he'd be one dimensional like CK on C2H. /shakes head/
