7. Pregnancy Troubles

Chapter 7-- Pregnancy Troubles

Crestant and I keep trying to have a baby but I won't get pregnant, and it's driving him insane.

I made him burgers for dinner and I ate a salad.

"Maybe something is wrong with you." Crestant says.

I look up at him.

"What do you mean?" I ask.

"Maybe something is wrong down there causing you to not get pregnant." He says taking a bite of his burger.

"Maybe something is wrong with you." I say.

He shakes his head and holds up his key, "I'm perfect remember. Your the flawed lock."

"I'm still a human.." I mumble.

He stands up and pulls me up.

He pushes me against the wall and starts kissing me.

He slides his hand up my shirt, "Don't you need to eat your dinner?" I whisper to him.

He kisses my neck, "It can wait." He whispers, "We need to make a kid." He says.

"I don't feel like it right now." I say.

"Why?" He asks not stopping his kisses upon my skin.

"Because I don't love you." I say.

He looks at me in shock, I chuckle, "Is it that much of a shock, I've told you I hate you before."

He shakes his head, "It doesn't matter... We still have to make a kid." He says.

"I know." I say.

He kisses my nose and I feel disgust fill me.

"I love you." He says.

I don't respond.

He rolls his eyes and sits down and starts to finish his dinner.

I hear the door bell ring.

I walk to the door and open it.

"Kobel?" I say.

"Hi." He says while a smirk appears.

I feel stress be lifted.

"Hey." I say smiling.

"Can we talk?" He asks.

I look behind me to see Kobel going into the bedroom to take a nap.

I smile. "Um sure." I say.

He pulls me outside and opens his car door for me.

I look at the house and back at him.

"I can't leave... Crestant would kill me." I bite my lip.

"I need to show you something."

"Crestant will kill me."

"That's an exaggeration."

I shake my head.

He soon takes notice to my arm where he had grabbed me after I got out of the hospital, it was bruised still.

"Did he hit you?" He asks me getting angry.

"I'm a lock... It doesn't matter." I say.

"You may be a lock but you're still human." He says.

I've never heard anyone say that but myself.

"Do you really believe that?" I ask shocked.

"Umm, yeah I'm pretty sure that's why I said it."

I'm going to be honest, Kobel was beautiful. Very beautiful. I sometimes get the feeling that he's my other key... But of course I cannot ask.

But there was an undesirable attraction there...

"Did you ever learn your lock's name?" I ask.

He shakes his head.

"All I was told that it's an old name that people used to use a lot." I nod, "Sorta like your name Hazel." He says with a smirk.

"Yeah..." I mumble.

"Too bad that no one can have two keys." He laughs making jokes.

"Why is it too bad?" I ask.

He stops laughing and looks at me, "Because, Hazel if there could you could possibly be my lock. And having a lock, would be pretty nice." He says.

I want to tell him knowing there's a possibility.

"I have to tell you something Kobel.." I start.

My heart races. And I come to remembering that if I told... I would become an Akaline...

"Yeah?" He responds.

I can't tell him... I can't, "Crestant and I have to have a baby." I say.

He smiles and hugs me.

"Congratulations!" He says smiling from ear to ear.

"Thanks..." I mumble.

"What's the matter?" He asks.

"We can't. Like... I haven't gotten pregnant yet." I say.

"Usually you can the first try." He says.

"Well we didn't." I mumble.

"Hmph." He says sitting down on my doorstep, "The only situation I can think of that the girl wouldn't get pregnant is if she wasn't actually the match." He says chucking, "But his key fits soo, I don't know what to tell you." He gets a text.

He pulls out his phone

"That's the system." He says chucking.

"Wow you get-"

"Messages from them, oh yeah". He says sounding annoyed.

"Well bye." I say.

He smiles and nods, "Bye Hazel Cordella."

Right before I walk into my house he crumbles up a piece of paper and throws it at me.

I smile and turn around and toss it back.

"I have a question for you." He says.

"Hmm?" I ask curiously.

"Do you want to have Crestant's kids."

I swallow hard.

My answer was no.

To be honest having a kid with him was terrifying. What if he hit our kid? What if our kid was a lock? Would he treat him or her the way he treats me for being a lock?

But sadly I couldn't say any of that...

I couldn't run to Kobel bawling saying that I honest to God hate Crestant and I pray every night wishing he'd go away. And to be honest I wished that I was caught praying, I wanted to get sent to the other world where the religious live... Anything to get away from the hell I'm living in...

All I could do was smile and nod and assure him that I love Crestant.

He says okay but I think he can clearly see through my lies...

He drives away and I walk inside.

I grab a needle and prick my skin a bit to have a blood test to see if I'm pregnant or not.

I pour some of the blood into a cup, I dump the little drops into a tube where it leads it to a machine.

In less than 20 seconds it printed off a paper saying I wasn't pregnant.

I was relieved yet upset knowing I had to make love to a man I didn't love.

"Negative?" Crestant asks.

It makes me jump. I spin around and nod quickly.

"Sorry I didn't mean to scare you." He hands me a contraption I have never seen before.

"It's a nogation." He says, "You put a blood sample and it tells you whether or not your fertile.

I prick my thumb and drop a drop of blood onto it.

It shows a plus sign.

"I am." I say.

I throw it at him.

"Hey be nice to me I'm you-"

"There must be something wrong with you then, Mr. Perfect Key." I say sarcastically walking away.

He spins me around.

"Don't talk to me like that." He says pissed off like you wouldn't believe. I've never seen him so mad.

"Nobody's perfect." I mumble.

He slaps me.

"No you're not perfect! I'm a key I'm perfection!" He yells.

"I'm a lock and I'm a human that you treat like an animal!"

"Locks are basically animals!"

"No locks are humans who have emotions. Locks are humans who's emotions are overwhelming... Making locks great." Eclipse says walking in.

"Why are you here?" Crestant asks.

Eclipse looks at me and sees the tight grip Crestant has on my arm.

"You dare to say you love this woman and you treat her worse than you'd treat shit." She mumbles angry, "You're the reason keys have gotten a bad name.

"Locks are humans like you and me but you and many others are way to blind and ignorant to see that. Now let her go." He let's go of me.

She grabs my arm and pulls me close to her.

"Someone who is going to hit their lock doesn't need a lock." She mumbles.

Then that was it, she pulls me outside and takes me to her house without a second thought.
