Be Careful What You Wish For

I'm just an average girl, my friend is a singer and so she is constantly inviting me to these A-List parties. I finally gave in.. but I think that night was a mistake. That night was when I met him.


20. Four Months Later


It's been 4 months since I've talked to Ed.  1 month until I give birth.  1 month.  I moved to the U.S. to have a fresh start.  The press has forgotten about me, so I guess all is good.  Ed has been on tour for 3 months now and every now and then Harry or Niall will call me to see how I'm doing.  Tabby, Landyn, and Eleanor told me that they would get a plane ticket before my due date to come and support me.  
I am now working at a preschool in Ohio.  I go for maternity leave next week, and I think I've finally got a griping my life.


"Mike, can you help me get this out of my car?" I asked Mike, another teacher at the preschool. 
"Sure," he said walking over to my car and grabbing the new TeacherPro out of the back seat.
"Fancy stuff, eh?" he said.
"Yeah, I thought it would be fun for the kids when I leave," I laughed.
"Well we all are going to miss you," he said hugging me with his free hand.  

Mike had been the only sane teacher at this school.  He was sweet, and every so often he would surprise me with breakfast that wasn't the cafeteria mystery meat.  He had asked me out once before, but that didn't last very long.  After that things got a bit awkward, but he found another girlfriend and he always came to me for advice.  

"Tell the kids I'll be back soon," I said hugging him back.  He set down the box and slid his hands further down my back and I looked at him confused.  I couldn't really get away from his grip because I was against a brick wall.  
"Mike what the hell are you doing?!" Anna hissed from a distance.  His head shot straight up and to be honest, I could feel more relieved to see his girlfriend walking up and slapping him across the face.  I quickly got in my car and drove off before things got worse.  


I made it to my apartment and I set my purse down on the table.  My phone started ringing and it was Ed.  


I hesitated to press call.  Was she just going to ignore it? Or tell me to fuck off?  it had been 4 months since I had last talked to her, and I still couldn't forgive myself.  I had just finished a meet and greet, and I saw a young couple with a child standing in line.  They asked how I was, and the woman asked about Savannah.  I thought everyone forgot  about her, but it turns out there were thousands of fans trying to track where she was.  She was the one who convinced me to call her.  Without thinking, I pressed call.  I held the phone up to my ear what seemed like hours, and on the fifth ring she picked up.
"Hey," she said happily.  
"Hey, how have you been?" I asked trying to keep calm.
"Good, I'm working at a preschool in the states so that's good," she explained.  
"When are you due?" I asked trying to hear what it's like to hear her voice again.
"It could be anytime to be honest.  They say it will be next month but I'm sure she'll be here in a week or two," she laughed weakly.
"I know it's a little late, but I am sorry I was a douche to you before," I blurted out.  She didn't speak for a minute, and I thought she ended the call.
"You're right, it is a little late, but I'm sure you're better off without me," she said quietly.
"Not really, its been hell actually," I laughed.
"I'm sure that's not true, I mean you've made it this far without me right?" she said.
"Barely," I laughed pacing the room. 
"Ed, you are one of the sweetest people I know, but I'm still trying to sort things out.  I just don't think I was your girl," she explained.
"I know, I just feel bad.. Hey I'm going to be coming to the U.S in a couple of days, do you mind if I come visit you?" I questioned.  
"..Uhm.. sure," she said after a long silence.


"I'll talk to you later,  Stuart is here," Ed said hanging up.  I sighed and set my phone down.  I know he was trying to make things better, but I honestly didn't see us getting back together.  I sat on the couch and rested my hands on the evident baby bump.  I still didn't have a name for her.  My mind scanned through all the possible names, but none of them seemed to fit.  I dozed off thinking about  the next few weeks that would impact my life.


I woke up to my alarm blaring in my ear.  I grabbed it as a natural reflex and turned it on snooze and pulled the covers back over my head.  Just one more day at the school.  My attempt at getting five minutes of sleep failed when my phone was ringing in the tone of one of Ed's songs.  I forgot to even change his ringtone after we broke up.  I quickly pressed the green button and held my phone close to my ear.
"Hello?" I mumbled. 
"Sorry if you just woke up but I'm in Ohio," he laughed.
"I thought you weren't coming until like next week!" I said surprised.
"I talked to Stuart and I got the quickest flight," he explained.
"You are crazy, and I don't think I have time today, I gotta finish my last day of the school," I laughed.
"Alright, just call me if you get some free time today, I have to tell you something," he said then hung up.  I sighed and hurried to get dressed since I only had 20 minutes to get to the school.  Gosh.. what am I even going to say to Mike?  He just kissed me the other day and I had no clue what got into him.  
I tied my hair in a bun and slipped on a dress and blue TOMS.  I ran out the door and jumped in the car.  Ten minutes later I made it there just in time for me not to be late.  
As I opened the door the other teachers were still in the break room drinking their coffee.  They saw me and Emma, the main bitch, scoffed at my outfit and all of the others laughed along with her.  
"Get me out of this hell house," I thought.  The only reason I became a teacher was to help the kids, not to relive high school.  
I ignored them and went to my classroom and set down my bag.  One by one, the kids started coming in and sat in their seat, energetic to see me.  They were always fascinated when I let them touch my belly and she kicked.  
"Miss Davis please don't go," Lucy said running up to me and clutching my leg.
"Aww, Lucy don't worry when I come back I'll bring the little munchkin and you guys can meet her," I said sitting on my knees.  She nodded and went back to her seat.  I went to my desk and packed my printer, laptop, and stereo.  Who knew what Emma would do to my room when I would be gone.  The bell rang and everyone was sitting in their seats.  I had planned a free day for them, and they seemed pretty happy when I announced it.  After a hour and a half there was a knock on the door.  I got up and turned the handle, and I almost pissed my pants.
"Savannah!" Ed said hugging me.
"Ed.. how the hell did you find where I work.. or my room for that matter!" I whispered so the kids wouldn't hear.
"That's for me to know and you to find out, and plus you wouldn't call me today even if you had free time," he said closing the door behind him.  
"Miss Davis who is that?" Olivia said.
"This is Ed, and he is a very close friend of mine," I explained to them.
"Is he your boyfriend?" Max giggled. Everyone else started laughing with him and I couldn't help but laugh too.
"No, no he's not my boyfriend.  Now get along with your business or I'll make sure you won't have a nice teacher when I'm gone," I laughed.  They went quiet for a second then turned to each other again to talk.
"Strict teacher you are," Ed said observing the room.  
"Am not," I argued.
"Oh yeah? Guys is Miss Davis mean?" he asked.
"Noooo," they said in unison.
"Ha," I said sticking my tongue out.
"They're just lying because they know if they say you're mean that you'll treat them bad," he said sitting on a bean bag chair.  
"Nuh Uh! I love them!" I retorted.
"Suree," he laughed.  I put my hands on my hips and he grabbed one if my wrists and pulled me down onto the beanbag with him.
"Dam-Dangit Ed! You can't just go yanking me around like that!" I said catching myself.  
"And what are you going to do about it?" he asked amused by my new hair color.  
"I'll go out into the hall and say you're trying to kill me," I smiled evilly.
"You wouldn't," he fake gasped.  I nodded and as I was getting up, Mike walked through the door.  
"Hey I'm sorry about yester- oh, I didn't know you had company," he said staring at Ed.
"Just forget it, and that's Ed, Ed this is Mike, one of the teachers here ," I said introducing them to each other.
"Nice to meet you," Ed said getting up and shaking his hand.  Ed had one hand wrapped around my back and even though I wasn't looking at him, I could feel Mike's eyes on me.  
"So what brings you here Ed?" Mike asks leaning on the door frame.
"Well I'm going on tour and I decided to stop by to see Savannah," Ed replied letting me go.  Mike nodded and it was getting awkward.  
"Anna was pissed when we got home and I explained it was a mistake," Mike announced.  Shit Mike not here..
"About what?" Ed asked curiously.
"I- I kind of kissed Savannah yesterday," he said with a hidden smirk on his face.  I looked at Ed, who was growing furious with him.  He looked at me and I sort of bobbed my head, and Ed was trying his best to keep his fists by his side.
"Mike can you please go now," I said looking at the floor.  He sighed and walked away, and Ed slammed the door.
"Why didn't you tell me?" he asked furious.
"Because you lost that entitlement to know everything that goes on four months ago.  The day we broke up was the day that I didn't need to know what your relationships were either," I said in a hushed voice.  
"Did you date him?" he asked.
"What?" I said trying to avoid it.
"Did you date him?" he repeated.
"Yes.. but we broke up soon after.  It wasn't really that serious," I explained.  He sighed and pulled me into a hug.
"I just don't want you to get hurt anymore, I've reminded myself everyday how I hurt you and that you were probably forgetting about me and I didn't want you to go back to that day.. so for four months I kept myself from calling you," he said.
"Then what made you call now?" I asked looking at him. 
"It got to a point where it was hurting me too," he said looking me in the eyes.  I wanted to forgive him.  I wanted to take him back.  But after finding him cheating on me twice, I don't think I could take it.
"I'm not asking to get back with you, I just want to be there for you and the baby because if I just left you I would feel like a di," he said and a shushed him at the end.
"Sorry," he laughed, "can I just help you with the baby expenses at least?" I nodded and he pulled me back into another hug.
