SETTING: Turner House, Willow Creek. Mill Road, Tuesday morning. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Fatou had a plan. A secret plan to be executed starting at 0800 hours when Colten was at a photoshoot & Oumar was off to school. It would just be Fatou with her Jedi youngling, Adama by themselves. She didn't WANT to lie to Colten, she was only omitting information. Information pertaining to where she was, where she was going, & what she was doing. He wouldn't be angry per se although he wouldn't agree with what she was doing. He was all about a natural & organic lifestyle, he'd worry them both to death about side effects & 'what ifs'. Therefore, she was going to visit their friend Baptiste who owned a fertility clinic right there in Willow Creek. Alone. Good thing for dr-patient confidentiality
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀But 1st, her daily yoga. Now that Adama was getting older he'd become very curious. She had started incorporating him into her workout a few months ago & he'd really taken to it! He would climb on her, give her little kisses, occasionally even trying his toddler version of a pose. Maybe having her youngest with her while doing her yoga would put fertile energy into the universe, thereby assisting the chances with a baby! She knew it was silly but at this point she'd try anything. Fatou dropped Adama off with 1 of her best friends, Ayako to sneak off to her doctors appointment. Parking in the back and walking the long way around the building made Fatou feel like a spy. 'Hey, at least I'm having fun with my misery', she thought.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Once upstairs with Baptiste, she poured out her frustrations. How they'd been trying for almost 2 years, all the different methods she tried, how healthy and fit she was (trying) to be. At 1st he was doubtful due to her extreme dieting as an elite athlete then model. But she forgot he loved the element of surprise and just when she thought he couldn't help he gave her brought her back from the brink. There was a new treatment from a colleague over in Magnolia Promenade that she'd be a perfect candidate for. After explaining it however, Fatou knew she wouldn't be able to hide it from Colten. At least not for long.
