Lena and Ezra got to Lena’s house and talked for a little bit outside and finally went inside.
“Mom, where are you?” Lena called out.
“In the kitchen honey.” Her mom yelled.
Lena and Ezra were walking to the kitchen. Lena felt like she was walking to her death. She was so scared.
“Mom, Ezra and I want to talk to you. You may want to sit down.” Lena said.
“Well this can’t be good.” Her mom said.
Lena, her mom, and Ezra walked to the living room.
“So what is it?” Missy asked.
“Mom this is really hard for me to say. But Ezra and I… Well I’m pregnant with Ezra’s baby.” Lena said.
There was silence in the room for a few minutes. Lena’s mom was the first one to speak.
“You’re pregnant?” Missy asked.
“Yes mom. I know you were worried about Ezra using me for sex but that isn’t what this is. I choose to have sex with him. He didn’t force me to do it.” Lena explained.
“I see.” She said.
“Missy I know you are in shock right now but I know Lena would make a good mother even though she is 17 and I know I will be a good father and I can support this baby and her.” Ezra told Missy.
“So you want to keep the baby and raise it, it sounds like?” Missy asked.
“I think so mom. I mean I want to raise this baby but I am just scared to do it.” Lena said.
“I see. Well this is what I have to say about this. I am very much in shock right now. I am disappointed and I wish I weren’t going to be a grandmother this early but if you want to raise this child then go for it. I will help a little bit. But I want you to see how the choices you make can affect your life.” Missy explained.
“Okay I can understand that.” Lena said.
“Thank you for being so calm about this Missy.” Ezra said.
“Yeah, well I don’t think there is anything more to talk about.” Missy said.
They finished up their conversation and then Lena and Ezra went outside to talk by themselves.
“Your mom was way calm about this.” Ezra said.
“Yeah I know. It kind of makes me think that she is waiting to yell at me when you leave.” Lena said.
“No she won’t. Everything is going to be fine.” He said.
“I sure hope so.” Lena said.
Ezra and Lena finished their conversation and kissed good bye.
Lena walked into her house and found her mom. Her mom was just standing over the counter with a blank face.
“Mom?” Lena said.
Missy turned to Lena and just stared for a minute.
“How could you be pregnant Lena? I have given all you need to be safe and yet you’re still got pregnant.” Missy said.
“I just am mom. I made a stupid choice.” Lena told her.
“Yeah I can see that. How do you plan on raising this baby?” Missy said starting to raise her voice.
“I don’t know mom. All I know is Ezra and I are going to try.” Lena said to her mom.
“You know I am not going to help you very much, right?” Her mom asked.
“Yeah and I don’t expect you to. I made the bad choice, so I am going to learn from the choice and raise this child with Ezra.” Lena said to her mom in a stern voice.
“Okay I just want you to know that.” Missy said to her daughter.
Lena then walked into her room. She went up to her mirror and stuck out her stomach like she was more pregnant. She put her hands on her stomach and rubbed her stomach.
“You’re going to have a good family. You have a mommy and a daddy who are going to love you.” Lena said to her baby.
Lena just stood there for a few minutes rubbing her stomach. Then Lena decided to call her girls. So she got them all on conference call.
“Hey, Lena did you make an appointment?” Lizzie asked.
“Yeah I did. I am pregnant.” Lena told them.
“Wow. I can’t believe this. Total shock!” Cassie said.
“I know, right.’’ Lena said.
“Are you going to keep the baby?” Trista asked.
“Yes, I think so.” She told them.
“So we’re all going to be aunts!” Cassie said.
“Yeah I guess so.” Lena said.
“Did you tell your mom yet?” Lizzie asked.
“Yes. I told her after the appointment. Ezra was with me.” Lena explained.
“What did she say?” Trista asked.
“Like she isn’t very happy with me and she isn’t going to help me very much with the baby. But she will let me keep the baby if I want to because she wants me to learn from choices that I make.” Lena told them.
“Well at least she didn’t like kick you out or anything like that.” Cassie said.
“Yeah I guess you’re right.” Lena said.
“You know what we should do this weekend?” Lizzie said.
“What?” The girls said at one time.
“We should go baby clothes looking. Since you can’t buy anything because you don’t know what you’re having.” Lizzie said.
“Yeah we could.” Lena said.
“You could bring Ezra along to if you wanted.” Lizzie said.
“Yeah let’s do it.” Lena said.
The girls finished up the conversation and decided to go shopping on Saturday. Then she called Ezra told him about this weekend. He was totally all for it. Then Lena got off the phone and did some homework.
