Angela planned to get to the apartment much, much earlier. She did.

But after the tests, and the ... more tests, and the clinic, she ... she kind of lost herself, for a little bit, and ended up wandering the city, scarcely noticing what streets she was on. Eventually, she realized she was in front of Marty's apartment building, and decided this was a sign.

When knocking on the door brought no response, she let herself in with her key and settled cross-legged on the floor to wait. She tried to read, but the words melted together on the page. So she just sat in the gathering darkness.

Marty was in a good mood as he came home and into the apartment. "Hey you!" he said cheerfully before catching the expression on Angela's face. "Something wrong?"

Marty raised an eyebrow in concern and settled down on the floor next to her. "You want to talk about it?"

Marty slipped his arm around her waist and kissed her forehead. "Hey. C'mon. You're scaring me here. What happened?"

Marty didn't have any words for the moment. In fact he just sort of sat there with his mouth hanging open.

Marty's mouth open and closed a few times before any words managed to come out. "You're..."

And then there were no more words. He made a futile hand gesture that didn't even being to cover the topic.

Marty's brain had pretty much imploded as he unconciously slipped his arm around Angela again.

"I... Um. Okay. Two months?"

"I... Wow. Okay," Marty said rubbing his hand through his hair. "This is-"

He gestured again which really didn't sum up the whole moment.

"What... what do you want to do?"

Marty unconsciously held Angela a little tighter. "Yeah," he replied quietly and in a flat tone. "Logically"

"I know," Marty said softly. "I just... I don't know. You know? I mean were those really our kids? I mean I know they were our kids but were they our kids? And if they were our kids does this mean that-"

Marty shook his head as he tried to get his head together. "I'm not sure we can just look at the logical thing here."

Marty shifted slightly, making his posture straighter. "Do you want to keep it?" he asked looking uncomfortable. "I mean... I'm not going anywhere. I'm with you if you want to-"

Marty nodded emphatically hoping he somehow was making a point.

Marty swallowed hard as he opened his mouth to say something comforting.

"Marry me."

And judging by the shocked look on his face it may not be what Marty intended to say.

"Nononono," Marty said quickly, "I mean.. Okay I don't know what I mean. I just- I mean, I love you. And that's not going to change. And with this... thing going on I just thought..."

Marty frowned and tried to sum it all up. "I dunno. I didn't think about it. It was asking that was the important thing.'

"Okay," Marty said looking... well a tad frantic. "I mean... yeah. I get that. I get the whole thing. I just can't put it all together just yet. Y'know?"

Marty looked over at Angela and gave her a small smile right before wrapping his arms around her.

"Okay. Look, I'm just going to stop freaking out here for a bit because I think you really don't need that at the moment," he said quietly and with what he hoped was an amused tone in his voice. "Because... well, we love each other right? So this can't be an entirely bad thing. It's a good thing. Because it's both a part of us, y'know?"

Marty gave her what he hoped was a reassuring look as he held her a little closer... and wondered what was going to happen next.
