15. Chapter 15
"WHAT THE H*** ARE YOU DOING IN HER BED ANDY?!" I woke up to Ashley screaming. That woke up Andy too.
"I wanted to make sure she was okay." Andy said, calmly.
"So you had to do...this to comfort her?!" Ashley was still freaking out.
"I dont see how its that big of a-" I stopped mid-sentence and ran to the bathroom.
I puked, leaning over the toilet bowl. When I emptied myself, I looked up to see Andy standing in the doorway.
"Are you okay?" He asked me. I nodded and pushed him out of the bathroom. I shut the door and studied myself in the mirror. What the h*** was that?
Being me, my brain came up with the worst senarios.
I quickly pushed that one thought that was nagging me away. To prove myself wrong, I checked to see if I had bled during the night.
No blood. I started to panic. My breath came out hard and I had to sit on the toilet to relax myself.
I mean, there could be other explainations. Right? I couldve ended early. It happens doesnt it? My body doesnt stop changing until I'm around eighteen. Maybe this is another body change.
I couldn't be pregnant.
Alex had been puking in the toilet. I waited for her in the room. I was trying to calm Ashley, who was still pretty p***ed. Finally, he left to go to the other guys' room.
Alex came out looking afraid and anxious and worried all together.
"You okay?" I asked.
"Do you know how many times you have asked me that?" She laughed, but I could still see all of those emtions still in her eyes.
"A lot. You still seem... I dunno." I couldnt put it into words.
"I'm fine." She lied, "Could you take me to the store? I wanna get something."
"Stuff." She wouldnt answer me.
"Alex, what do you want to get?" She was seriously worrying me.
"Tampons! Okay, I ran out." She answered, exasperated.
My eyes went wide. She laughed. And grabbed my keys.
I lied about the tampons. I needed someway to get the store and get what I needed without him asking questions.
I needed a pregnancy test. Or three, just to make sure.
I walked into the store. I convinced Andy that he wouldnt want to be around that.
I got the pregnancy tests and ran out to the car. They were double bagged so he wouldnt be able to see them.
At the hotel, I followed the instructions and waited. I was so anxious. I was chewing on my nails and pacing.
After the time to wait I picked up the first one. I didnt look at it instantly. I couldnt handle being a mother. But I didnt believe in abortion. This was it. I looked at the sign.
