Catherine and Neil's Hope

They have been married for four years, and their colleagues and a few neighbors call them Mr. and Mrs. Shepherd.
They have been married for four years, and their colleagues and a few neighbors call them Mr. and Mrs. Shepherd. Their first meeting was quite dramatic. Catherine and Neil met during their vacation at Barcelona Beach, and like a film hero, he saved her from the sea waves. They blushed, dated, and married. Last year, they moved to Denver, Canada. Unfortunately, Catherine has gone through two miscarriages. A few weeks before, she conceived. This time, it's a bet for them. Lunch was ready 15 minutes before, but Catherine decided to clean the leftover dishes as she didn't have time in the morning. Catherine has been dealing with anxiety for weeks and often behaves weirdly. She keeps repeating tasks or can't manage one at a time. When Neil's impatience reaches the edge, he says, ''You should watch time, don't you think so?" Neil has supported her all along. After cleaning the dishes, she quickly comes with a rice bowl. Neil smiled while looking at her and couldn't hold himself back from eating some.

As they spent more time together, the two became inseparable. They laughed, blushed, and shared their dreams and aspirations. Over time, their love blossomed and they knew they were meant to be together. They decided to get married and start their own adventure as Mr. and Mrs. Shepherd. Last year, Catherine and Neil moved to Denver, Canada, in search of a fresh start. However, they faced a series of challenges that tested their strength and resilience. Catherine had gone through two heartbreaking miscarriages, leaving them feeling defeated and overwhelmed with sadness.

But they never lost hope. They believed that one day, their dream of becoming parents would come true. And just a few weeks ago, Catherine discovered that she was pregnant again. This time, it felt different. It felt like a bet, a symbol of hope and a new beginning for them. With their hearts filled with joy and cautious optimism, Catherine and Neil continued to support each other through thick and thin. Catherine, however, was struggling with anxiety and her behavior had become quite peculiar. She would often repeat tasks or forget to complete them, leaving Neil slightly concerned.
One afternoon, as lunchtime approached, Catherine busied herself with cleaning the leftover dishes. Neil, who was patiently waiting for her, couldn't help but express his impatience. He gently said, "You should watch time, don't you think so?" Catherine's eyes welled up with tears as she nodded, recognizing the weight of their shared dreams and the importance of time. But deep down, she knew that Neil's words came from a place of love and concern.

Catherine smiled through her tears, feeling grateful for Neil's unwavering support and understanding. They knew that their journey wasn't easy, but their love for each other and the hope of a little one kept them going.
