There was a child growing in my belly, a freaking child growing in me. I don’t know the first thing about being a mother. Dang, I don’t even know who the father is.
I have been racking my mind to remember who I was with that night. All I remembered was that it was a huge chance that it could be either one of the twins.
How was I going to break the news to them that one of them was the father? Maybe I should just go to their house and tell them before I start to show.
Yeah, that’s what I’ll do. Just march on in, and hope that one of them remembers what happened during that party. If I’m lucky I won’t embarrass myself any more than saying I’m pregnant will already do.
“Okay, so to start off, I am terrified. Like super scared.” They looked at each other then back at me.
“Whatever it is, just remember, we’ll always be there for you, right?” Ike looked at Jorden who nodded in agreement.
“That is so wonderful to hear because I found out that I am pregnant.”
I let this sink in and thought I was prepared for anything, but I was so wrong. As soon as it sunk in one of them jumped up and cursed, then they paced behind the couch, cursed again and left the house. I knew tears were making their way down my face, but I just stared at the floor. I was in shock, that was not what I was expecting at all. My throat felt like it was closing up on me.
I hear nervous rustling from the couch, but instead of looking up I just dropped my face to my hands and let out a sob.
Then a hand touched my shoulder; I flung into their arms and cried, to the point of hiccupping.
“April, what can I do to make you feel better?” They put their chin on my head.
“I… don’t… know…” I sniffled, “Ike, I’m so scared, and now I don’t know what to do. He was so pissed off.” I started crying again.
“He might come around after he cools off and thinks it through.” Ike ran his fingers through my hair trying to soothe me.
I cried out everything, and asked to go clean up; he helped me to the bathroom.
“Have you told your parents yet?”
“No this was my first stop after the doctor appointment… I don’t know what to tell them yet, even though my mom might know now… she was at work today.” I cleaned up my ruined makeup as Ike leaned on the door frame.
“What do you remember from that night?” he asked.
“Not much at all… um, playing juice pong, dancing, drank some more, it took a few days to get past the fuzzy-ness but we went skinny dipping in the hot tub, um… we made out there…” I blushed and so did he.
“I don’t know, it gets really bad here, I think I went skinny dipping in the pool too, and I think Logan went streaking, and I thought I only kissed Jorden, but after this” I pointed at my belly, “and his reaction I don’t think that was the case. Ugh, what was I thinking.”
“Do…Do you like my brother?”
“Well, I um… He… Before…”
“You don’t have to say…” I knew that look on his face; he was silently boiling over.
“Don’t Ike… Before all this he was cool to hang out with, he was my friend… just like you, Ava and Kia are. However… after that display of emotion, I don’t know what to think of him… that does not mean you can hurt him.” I turned around to look at him.
I could see that he was concentrating really hard on what I said, as well as what he wanted to do. I could only guess that his brother’s reaction had him peeved as much as it had me.
“Ike? Do you think it might be yours? I mean, could it be?” I chewed my lip nervously.
“Sorry, but it was just the hot tub for us.” suddenly he blushed and looked away, “Look, if Jorden… I mean, what with how he acted… I won’t think any different about you no matter what you do, but I gotta ask, are you going to keep it?” My heart stopped when he looked at me with those questioning cold eyes of his.
“Wh-” I didn’t know what to say or do for that matter. “I don’t really know yet, but,” I put my hand to my stomach, “I might.”
He smiled at me and put his hand on my stomach, “Try not to worry too much, you still have me, and the girls will stand by you too.”
