Chapter 7

***Warning Adult Language***

Life is not always perfect and Carrie and Brad were going through a rough time because of something that one of Brad's friends wives told Carrie at a get together with the Rangers hockey team.

"Brad was telling Henrik that he does not plan on getting married until after his hockey career was over. So when Henrik told me you guys got engaged I was happy for you two but surprised" Therese Andersson Lundqvist said to Carrie.
"I never knew he said that" Carrie said in complete surprise, "Now I am super confused and think I might have to talk with him later on".
"Sorry I do not mean to start trouble with you two because you two are so cute together and Brad seems really happy now compared to past relationships he has had since I have known him" Therese said giving Carrie and hug and Carrie hugged her back and said, "Its ok you did not start anything but it is making me think about how crazy life and relationships can be these days".

Carrie wandered away from the party and outside to the balcony to get some fresh air and think about what she had just learned. Carrie had thought that it had been kinda sudden with the engagement and it hit her that maybe he did it partially because of the baby or he had changed his thoughts about his future.

Brad was looking around and did not see Carrie anywhere in the room and then noticed the doors to the balcony were opened and so he wandered out there and saw Carrie. He walked over to her and put his arms around her waist.

Carrie jumped and turned to see Brad holding her, "Hey darling" Brad said and then leaned down to kiss Carrie on the lips but she turned her head and he ended up kissing her cheek. Brad pulled back, "What was that all about?" Brad asked with a confused look on his face.
"We can talk about it later" Carrie said moving away from Brad and feeling bad for saying it.
"Sure" Brad said and then they both went back inside to the party and they both pretended everything was fine.


The ride home was quiet and Brad kept looking over at Carrie and wondering what was going on.

They got home and Carrie went inside first and Brad followed afterwards. Carrie went to the bedroom and Brad went into the kitchen and grabbed a beer and then went to the den and turned on the television.

Meanwhile Carrie packed a bag and then headed downstairs and Brad saw her walk by and he jumped up and ran over to where she was and was shocked that she had a suitcase.

"Where are you going?"
"I need some time alone to think" Carrie said.
"Why and wait a minute you said we would talk when we got home but you just pack a bag and walk away. What in the hell is going on?" Brad exclaimed loudly.
"Sorry and all I will say is that one of your teammates wives told me that you said that you were not going to start a family until after your hockey career was over and yet you ask me to marry you. And part of me just realized it was kinda sudden after I told you I was pregnant that we got engaged so I am not sure what to think right now so can you give me some time?" Carrie asked hopefully.
"I am shocked but you know I love you and I did say that but you made me rethink my life and future but I will give you the time you need to figure things out. Where are you going to go?" Brad asked looking sad.
"My Aunt Susan's place and she knows so if you need me that is where I will be" Carrie said and then heard a hocking and it was her aunt's car service and Brad helped her out and gave Carrie a quick kiss before she left.

Brad waved as the car drove off but he was so confused and hated interviews and the internet but hoped that this time apart would help and make Carrie realize that they were meant to be not matter what anyone said about any subject.

Carrie cried the whole way to her aunt's place but knew she needed a little time to just think without Brad in the same room with her.

When she got to her aunt's place she had calmed down and told her aunt she just wanted to be alone and Susan understood and helped her get settled in her room. Susan left Carrie so she could be alone and think.

After a few hours later Susan went to check on Carrie and found her asleep in the bed. Susan smiled and covered her with a blanket and kissed her head and said to herself, "You just needed rest sweetie and everything will be ok" and then she left the room.


During the middle of the night Carrie woke up to a pain her in abdomen. She tried breathing and trying to calm down but the pain was too much to bear so she just walked as best she could to the bathroom but did not make it and passed out on the floor.

Susan heard a noise and got up and walked into the hallway and saw Carrie on the floor and went over to her, "Carrie sweetie are you ok? Carrie, Carrie". Susan ran to call 911 and the ambulance showed up fast and took Carrie to the hospital.

Susan followed the ambulance in her car and when she got to the hospital she was told she would have to wait until they admitted Carrie before she could she her. So Susan waited and hoped that everything with Carrie would be fine.

Finally the nurse came out to talked to Susan and told her what room Carrie was in so she headed down there and slowing opened the door to see Carrie resting in the bed.

"Hey sweetie how are you feeling?" Aunt Susan asked.
"I do not have any idea why I am here" Carrie said slightly disoriented.
"You fainted and I found you. I am just glad you are here and hopefully everything will be fine".
"Yeah I hope so" Carrie said putting her hand on her abdomen and doing her own little prayer for her baby.

Just then the doctor came in and to check on Carrie.

"How is the patient feeling" Dr Middleton said.
"I feel better now than when I woke up with that pain. What happened and why am I here" Carrie asked.
"You are just stressed out and need rest so I am keeping you here for a few days so you and your baby will not have any further complications" Dr Middleton said and Carrie just nodded her head and laid back in her bed.

The doctor checked a few more things and then left the room.

Aunt Susan's phone started ringing and she looked at who was calling her and it was Brad.

"Carrie, Brad is calling me. What do you want me to tell him?" Susan asked.
"I, ummmm......I....I guess you can tell him I am here" Carrie said reluctantly.

"Hello Brad" said Susan.
"Hello Susan how are you?" Brad asked being the perfect gentleman.
"Good and how are you?"
"Frantic and worried to death about Carrie. She is not answering her phone and she said she was staying with you so I figured I would try calling you. Do you know where she is or why she is not answering her phone, please" Brad said freaking out.
"Calm down Brad. She is right here with me".
"Are you guys at home because I really want to see her".
"Actually we are at the hospital".
"Oh my god what happened?" Brad said practically losing it on the phone.
"Carrie fainted and she is in the hospital resting because she was under some serious stress" Susan said.
"I am on my way now. Which hospital are you at?" Brad asked.
"We are at Mount Sinai Hospital. Carrie is in room 1919 and...." Susan said and before she could finished Brad quickly said, "Bye" and hung up.

"Well sweetie he is on his way. You gonna be ok with him here?"
"Yeah I really need to talk to him. Can you stay until he gets here?" Carrie asked.
"Of course" Susan said sitting down next to Carrie on her bed and gave her a hug.

Carrie relaxed and just waited for Brad to show up so they could figure out where they should go from here.
