~One Month Later~
It was a sunny day for once, this week. It has been rainy for the past couple days. Since, the sun was finally shining out, Savannah and I made a plan to go shopping. I honestly didn’t feel the greatest, but being stuck inside all week because of the rain. I had to get outside. Plus, James has been bugging me about going out with him. I want to, but I just don’t know what I’m feeling right now. So, I’ve been kinda avoiding him.
As Savannah and I walked into Kmart, my stomach started to turn, again. It’s been like that for the past weeks or so. Savannah grabbed a shopping cart and looked up at me.
“Are you okay? You don’t look so well. Actually, you look like crap.” Savannah said as we started walking through Kmart.
“I don’t really know. I was fine, up until now. I feel like I’m gonna puke.” I said as I felt something coming up my throat. I ran to the restrooms as fast as I could. Once I got in a stall, that was it. I was puking for the 100th time.
After I was done, I heard the door open and saw Savannah’s high heels in front of the stall I was in. I opened the door and walked over to the skins and washed my hands and face. All I could taste was vomit.
“Are you sure you don’t want me to bring you home? We can go shopping another time, when your feeling better.” She said and I turned around to face her.
“No, I promised that we would hang out, and I’m not going to cancel it because I’m sick.” I said as we both walked out of the bathroom and headed down to the baby isle. Savannah wanted to check out some more cute outfits for her son, Ricky.
I started looking at some of the clothes as well. Then it hit me. Could I be pregnant? I makes complete sense. I haven’t been feeling good for the past few weeks. I’m tired and exhausted all the time. Plus the other day, I had a weird craving for tuna fish and I normal don’t even touch that stuff, but I do have to admit that it was really good.
I looked over to Savannah, she picked out a cute outfit that make me smile. ‘If Mommy can’t get what I want, Auntie will.’ That’s what the shirt said and I smiled to Savannah.
“That’s really cute. He will look so cute in it.” I said.
“I know! I think I’m gonna get it, its only 9 dollars.” As soon as she said that, my stomach started to turn again. What the hell!? It’s only been 11 minutes and I have to puke again? So, I ran to the restroom and puked, again. Then saw Savannah waiting for me outside the bathrooms.
“Okay, we need to talk. I think I know what’s wrong with you.” She then dragged me over to wear all of the medicines were. As we walked by, I noticed that we were in the isle with pregnancy test and prenatal stuff. “When’s the last time you had sex?”
“About a month ago, why?”
“With who?” She questioned me. I felt my face get red.
“With Tanner and then with James.”
“In the same day?!” She said shockingly.
“No, no, It was first Tanner and then it was James a week later.”
“Oh, okay. Well, were they protected?” I looked up at her and I honestly couldn’t remember. I was so drunk that I couldn’t even remember barely anything. I just wanted to cry, but I held it in.
Savannah hugged me and then said, “It’s okay, it happens. If you want, you can stay with me and Ricky.” Then she pulled away. “First thing we need to do is find out if you are pregnant, then we will take it day by day. You helped me, when I got pregnant and I’m gonna do the same for you.”
Then my phone started to go off. It was an unknown caller.
“Hello?” I answered.
“Is this Jade?” A male voice spoke.
“Yes this is. Who is this and what do you want?”
“It’s Frank, your stepfather.” What the hell did he want now? “Your mother is in the hospital.” My eyes got wide.
“What?! Where is she? How is she? And why are you calling me instead of my mom?”
“I called because your mother went into labor and lost both of the babies. She needs you, Jade. You are the only child she has left.” Tears started to pour from my eyes. ” And another thing, we don’t have enough money to pay the hospital bills and we were wondering if-” I hung up the phone. Of course she marries a gold digger.
I looked up to Savannah and gave her the ‘we need to leave’ look. But, before we left, she grabbed 3 pregnancy tests. I just hope that I have a stomach flu and not pregnant with a baby, that I don’t even know who the father is.
It’s been one month since that night. When I made love to the girl that I love. Now, everything has changed. She has been avoiding me since that night. I just want to talk to her. I want to know how she feels. I want to be with her.
Then the door bell goes off. I get up from the couch and open the door to find Marie standing there. I kinda forgot about her ever since that night. She used to send me messages and call me, but I blocked her number.
“Hi, James.” She said, smiling.
“Oh, um hi.”
“Can we talk? I’ve tried to call and text you, but I never got a response. So, that’s why I’m here.”
“To talk about what? Why I dumped you?” Once I said that, it got Marie’s attention. “Really? Why don’t I answer your calls or texts? It’s because I want nothing to do with you. I’m in love with someone else.”
“I-I thought we had something. Don’t you feel that spark that we have?” She wasn’t wrong. We did have a spark that kept me from thinking about Jade. I really didn’t want to end it, I had to. It was my only chance show Jade how much I loved and cared about her.
“There’s nothing. No spark. Not anymore.” I said and tears started to form under her eyes. God, I hate to see her like this. I have to. I have to find out if Jade and I will work out. “I think, it’s time for you to leave. Now.”
She wiped her tears and then ran to her car. I then slammed the door shut and went into my room. I don’t know what’s going on with me. First, I’m all about Jade, then I meet Marie, then I sleep with Jade and fall head over heels for her. Then Marie comes back. Why did she have to come back now? Couldn’t it waited a few more years?
My phone vibrated, it was a message from Jade.
Spending the night at Savannah’s house.
Of course. Avoiding me as usual. I really think that I need a drink because I don’t think I can handle the events of this day.
After Savannah put Ricky down for his bedtime, we both went into the bathroom. She gave me the first test and then left the bathroom. God, why did I have to be put in this situation?
After I took the first test, I gave it to Savannah. We then waited the 5 minutes and then she gave the test back to me.
“It’s a plus, Jade.” Savannah said. As I looked down at the test to see a plus sign. “You’re pregnant.”
“Give me the box. There must be a mistake.” As I took the box from Savannah and read the back of the box. She was right, I’m pregnant. “Oh, god.”
“I know, I was shocked the first time that I found out I was pregnant. Then again, you are in a totally better situation than I was.” She said, tears started to fall from my cheeks. She came over to me and hugged me real tight. “I’ll be here for you. There are options if you don’t want to keep the baby. I’ll support you 100%. You can even move in and I can help you out with the baby.”
“Thanks, Savannah. I think I just want to lay down and process this all in.” I said as she let go of me and smiled.
“You’re welcome, just lay down and if you want to talk, I will be all ears.” She said as she then got up and walked out of her bedroom.
I just sat there. Thinking that I’m pregnant, but I don’t know who the father is. I really hope it’s James, but then again, that would mean I would have to tell him that I’m pregnant. What if the baby is Tanners? What am I going to do now?
First thing first, I need to go to the doctors soon. I have to know if I really am. Then, I’ll have to tell them both. Tanner and the James. I just wish I knew who the father really was. The sooner I tell them, the sooner that I will find out who’s the father.
Why did I have to be so stupid?
