Lauren is pregnant...and the father of her child is her deceased husband's best friend, Paolo! Three months ago, her husband went missing in battle and Lauren had only Paolo to depend on. When the Italian banker told her the tragic news, they turned to each other for comfort and wound up in the bedroom. The small life within her is a ray of hope for Lauren, but when she goes to Paolo to announce the joyous news, he is cold-hearted and dismissive: "Pregnant? Congratulations. Who is the father?"
