Carrie had followed him out slowly, keeping some distance between the two of them. She stood behind Dick in the hallway and stopped moving forward once he sat down at the computer. With her back against the wall, she waited. When she heard the voice, her stomach dropped. "Oh shit," she whispered, bending over slightly and burying her face in her hands. She didn't know what she was going to do. She didn't know how to handle this.
After reminding herself of the importance of breathing, she took a step forward. She could see the screen over his shoulder. It looked official. And real. Painfully real. "Let me... I want to be sure." Carrie's voice was quiet and distant as she leaned forward and took the computer for herself. Her hands flew across the keyboard. She checked once, twice, three times. Each revealed what she already knew to be true. This wasn't a hack, it wasn't an elaborate hoax. They were really married.
Carrie exhaled and set the computer aside. She didn't know what to say so she kept her mouth shut.
