17. Second Chances

Ashley's P.O.V

Alex knew Steven and I did what we did, but she figured it was still Niall's. I hid the scared face I had on my face and tried to be excited like her. Niall and I haven't had recently, which worried me a little, but it wasn't my decision. I planned to go to the doctor about this to see how far a long I was after Niall's parents come to town. Which was in three days. Niall and Harry were downstairs, probably eating. I asked Alex to give me a second, so she left the bathroom. I looked into the mirror. I saw a weak, horrible girl in the mirror. So much has happened this past year and a half. I was having troubles keeping up with the fast pace it was going. I held in my tears and sucked it all in. I had to put on an excited act for Niall and everybody else. I am not going to tell Niall I am pregnant until I go to the doctor. Who knows, these pregnancy tests have been wrong before. What makes this time any different? It might be karma, I am not very sure. I finally walked out of the restroom and confidently walked down the stairs. I was hoping Alex didn't tell anyone about me being pregnant. "Alex, can I talk to you for a second?" I asked still faking a smile. "Sure!" We walked into the hallway and I told her not tell the boys or anybody anything. She looked confused, but nodded in agreement. We walked back into the room, Niall was standing there looking excited. Why was he so happy? He hugged me and whispered in my ear. "I can't wait to have this baby." My heart sunk into my stomach, and I glared at Alex. How could she have told them? Maybe I wanted to tell them. I was so mad, I couldn't even fake a smile anymore. I stormed out of the house and drove to El and Louis' house. After the wedding, El and I have become very close. She knew about Steven, so I needed to fill her in. 

I got to her house and knocked angrily on the door. She opened and smiled at me. "Hey Ash!" I stepped in uninvited and sat on the couch. She just stared at me, "Yes Ashley, why don't you come in and make yourself at home." She mocked, I just sat there looking pissed. "Okay what's up." "Well, one thing. I am pregnant. And before you get all excited, it's not Niall's." She dropped her smile and went into 'serious mode'. "Oh shit.. Does Niall know?" "Of course not!" I snapped. I didn't want to be mean to El, but I was in that kind of mood. "Sorry.. Anyway, Alex knew I was pregnant. But she didn't think it would be Steven's so she told Niall." El's face looked pissed as well, "Wait, wouldn't Niall figure out you were pregnant anyway?" I just shrugged, she did have a valid point. But Alex has no right to go tell him I was pregnant. I am not even sure if I will keep the baby. "Look, just don't bring anything up to Niall, don't talk much about it. Are you going to the doctor?" "Yeah, after Niall's parents leave. Would you go with me?" "Of course!" I hugged her super tight and she returned it. 

I got back to the house and Alex was sitting there waiting for me. She knows she has done wrong. "I am sorry Ash, it wasn't my place to tell them without asking," No shit. "It's okay Alex. There is just stuff you don't know." "Well, if you weren't always with El, I would know stuff too. I thought we were best friends." She suddenly snapped. Where did that come from? "Ale-" "Save it." She cut off and stormed up the stairs. I burst into tears and Niall ran up to me holding me in his arms. "This is all too much for me," I told him. "What does she not know?" He asked worried. "It's nothing, can we just drop the whole subject?" I asked tears streaming down my face. He nodded, then opened his mouth but closed it really fast. Smart Boy. "So, do you want me at your first doctor's appointment?" Niall asked after I calmed down. "Actually, I kinda want to go alone." I had just lied to my fiance, I felt so bad. But I didn't want him there until I knew for sure what I wanted to do. He nodded understanding. I smiled at him and kissed him for what felt like forever.

Niall's parents arrived at the airport around eleven that morning, we were there when they got off. Niall helped with the bags as me and Maura chatted. This is my second chance to not screw things up. We still haven't came out to the media, we weren't going to until their blessing was for sure. Or after Niall figures out it's Steven's baby. Whatever happens first. We got to the house and they were very impressed. Alex and Harry are staying at Lou and El's place for the three days. So the house was somewhat clean. I gave them Alex's room, just because I haven't really been in my dad's room since he past. Only when I had to go through his stuff for the will. That was already hard enough, try wrapping your mind around him giving his watches to my mom. The ones he promised me. Anyway, they settled in to the room and we all gathered around for lunch. We had sandwiches because Harry wasn't here to cook. "So, have you made any wedding decisions yet?" Maura asked eating the sandwich. "No, we are actually waiting until we get everyone's blessing." "I thought you already had everyone's approval? Didn't Niall tell you about our's?" "No.." I looked over to Niall who looked suddenly guilty. Which he was, did he not want to tell me about his parents because he didn't want to get married? "Well, it must have just been a mix up." Maura said trying to reassure me. Not working. I had a lot of talking to do with Niall about this.
