My Future With Mr White

By: J A Fielding

Chapter 1

Natasha ran her hand through her hair as she looked at her computer screen. She had heard that it was best to have a good preschool in mind long before a child reached school age but the prices she was looking at were simply not encouraging. She sighed and leaned back in her chair.

“This is a nightmare,” she thought as she looked at the list of schools. She was still looking at her computer screen when Mitchell walked in.

“Hey,” he said softly. She looked up and smiled.

“Hey. I officially hate education,” she said as she shut down her laptop. Mitchell smiled as he walked in and took a seat in front of her desk.

“Why? What’s going on?” he asked. Natasha sighed and looked at him.

“Do you know how much preschools cost these days? I think it’s cheaper to pay for college,” she said. Mitchell shrugged.

“I have heard quite a few people complain about it,” he said. Natasha rolled her eyes.

“That’s all you’ve heard?” she asked. “Do you know there are schools asking for up to fifteen thousand dollars a term? Julie from accounts told me she had to be on a two year waiting list to pay eight thousand a term and that was after a very quote unquote good recommendation from one of the school’s major donors,” she said. Mitchell looked at her and laughed. She looked at him and shook her head. “What?” she asked.

“Well, I fail to understand why you are so stressed out about Alexis’ school, yet she is only seven months old,” he said. Natasha shrugged.

“Well, Parenting Today reports that eighty percent of troubled teens never had a good education. I want Alexis to be successful,” she said softly. He looked at her and shook his head again. He stood up, walked around the desk and took her hands in his.

“Hey, sweetie. You are an amazing wife and an even better mother and the fact that you are this worked up about what school our seven month old daughter will be attending is proof of that. Right now, I just want to take you home, and pass by Estelle’s because if we miss that fried chicken she is going to hold our daughter hostage till kingdom come,” he said before kissing her forehead. She looked into his eyes and smiled.

“That may work really well for us. We have had the entire house to ourselves for almost three whole days and love being able to relive our glory days,” she said with a smile. Mitchell frowned. “I know it’s not something mother of the year would say but you like it too and I know it,” she said as she packed up her stuff.

“I have no idea what you are talking about,” Mitchell said as Natasha zipped up her laptop bag. She looked at him and smiled.

“You know that thing you did last night in the dining room or this morning in the kitchen? Yeah, you can’t do that with Alexis in the house,” she said as she stood up. Mitchell smiled.

“Guess you are right,” he said as they walked out.

“Said the hypocritical father of the year,” she said.

“Hey, I already gave in. Not fair,” he said.

“I heard you but I have always to call someone a hypocrite and doing it to my husband, well...” she went silent as she tried looking for the right thing to say. “Okay fine, I’m sorry,” she said before walking out of the office. Mitchell reached for her hand.

“When Alexis goes to sleep later tonight, I will make you pay for that,” he whispered in her ear. She looked at him and smiled.

“I am looking forward to it,” she said as they approached Stacy’s desk. “Hey Stacy, I’ve emailed you details about the new energy drink clients. Set up studio time and photo shoots for tomorrow afternoon, okay?” she said. Stacy nodded.

“Sure,” she said as she looked at the bottom right corner on her screen. “Wow, it’s only four. Is everything okay?” she asked.

“Yeah sure. We are just headed to my Nan’s for dinner. You know how she gets with time,” she said.

“Yeah. We need to go now or we’ll miss the soup,” Mitchell said.

“Soup, really?” Stacy asked looking at him.

“I have it on good authority that she is making potato leek soup and I happen to love potato leek soup,” he said matter of factly. Stacy shook her head.
