“Andy looked up from the budget proposal that he was working on. “Yes, Annette?”
“I need to ask you about maternity leave.”
He hadn’t been expecting that.
“Is there something we need to talk about?”
Annette was confused at first then realized what he must be talking about.
“You think that you and I…” She shook her head. “Nothing happened. I am married…to a woman. The baby was conceived from a donor.”
That actually made him happy to hear.
“How long do you think you will need?”
They discussed her time off and ended with something that made them both happy.
“Your job will still be here when you return.”
“Thank you, Mr. Maynard.”
