Lydia had imagined a perfect life for herself not so long ago. She had the man of her dreams, they were about to start a family and a new life in a new town far away from the dangers of being an astronaut. Lydia and Nathaniel had worked together for some years, and had a very close connection. She thought they were finally going to have everything, she could hardly believe she'd even convinced him to take a teaching job in Hyperion Heights, but he had agreed. She was full of positive thoughts when she made the move ahead of Nate to get everything in order as he went on his final mission, a mission that ended in tragedy. The last few weeks her whole life had been as if in slow motion. There had been no body to bury, only an urn shipped to her by NASA, all that was left of the love of her life. She was pregnant, and still had months ahead of her before the child would be born and now she was alone in a new place and would have to find a job and do a lot of things she hadn't planned. Nate's job was going to make it so she could be a stay at home mother, but that plan was dead along with her fiancée.
She'd managed to find a secretary job for a lawyer in town, it didn't pay as well as NASA and she was probably on the overqualified side of things, but she desperately needed a job. Sure she was the beneficiary on Nate's life insurance, but he had only been dead a month, and there was still some red tape to cut through because of the circumstances and the investigation into what went wrong. Besides, it wasn't an overly large policy, and she knew a baby wasn't going to be cheap. She needed the distraction more than anything else, something to keep her mind occupied as her pregnancy progressed and she struggled to grieve the loss of Nate.
Today had been her first appointment with her new doctor, something that had been the hardest to do as she missed her doctor back in California who had first given her the news of her pregnancy. The check up went well and she was now waiting on a prescription to be filled before she left, various vitamins and such she needed. Some of them she probably could have gotten at the grocery store with less of a wait, but it was just easier where her health insurance was concerned if she got them filled right at the Doctor's office. She hated going alone, she'd imagined these visits would be done with Nate, but that was yet another reminder that she was alone and the loss she'd suffered. Since she wasn't that far along yet, she stood so that many of the women who were much further along could have the seats as she waited for her name to be called for the prescription.
