"I love the name," Franny couldn't wait to hold the baby. She came by the nursery to see how Maxie was doing.
"You think Katy will?" Maxie squinted.
"I'm sure she will." Franny imagine.
"How you been?" Maxie looked at her so innocent. "I never see you anymore."
"Actually, I'm great. Just waiting for the divorce to be final." Franny nodded.
"Divorce? You and Cecil? Is there someone else?" Maxie wanted to know.
"Yes, there's someone else." She wasn't sure if talking about it in the nursery was exactly the place to do it. "But Cecil seems quite happy now, and I've found someone else too."
"So quickly?" Maxie winced.
"Yes, so quickly." She agreed. "But, I've never been better, actually."
"Really?" Maxie almost smiled.
"Yes, I'm happy now. Really, Randy makes me happy." She nodded.
"Well, bring him around, will you?" Maxie was serious.
"Sure, sometime soon. Well, not too soon. You all three need your rest." She smiled and handed the baby girl back to him. She guessed she'd need to find a gift for a baby girl. Funny, how she'd always wanted a daughter, but had two sons. She supposed she'd just have to be content.
