Er... za !

by Emma Philipps | Score: 2200

"John, I've got something to tell you."
"Something grave ?"
His wife hesitated.
"Yes."
"OK."
John got out of the pool he was swimming in. He put off his water goggles. 
"So, go on."
She paused, breathed and then said : 
"I'm pregnant."

" My wife is going to give birth, let us in !" 
The bailiff looked up. 
"Huh ? What did you say ?" he asked slowly.
The woman next to the man that had talked to him screamed. 
"What's going on ?" said slowly the bailiff.
"Never mind." 
John pushed him and he and his wife ran in the hospital.

"Congratulations !" 
John lift his head from his coffe . 
"You're gonna have a baby !" said the nurse.
She was smiling. 
"A perfect little girl !" she said. "What's her name ?" 
"Er..." 
"You don't know your new baby's name ?" 
The nurse looked shocked. 
"Erza !" finished John.
"Ok ! That a strange, though, but it's your choice..."
They heard a baby criying.
