18. Unwanted Surprises
It was January and it had been 3 months since California. It was the first day back at school after Christmas break and Mallory was dressed in a Abercrombie&Fitch sweater, J Brand jeans, Prada boots and her new gilet. Her hair was down and her makeup done but before breakfast, she suddenly felt really sick. She ran to the bathroom and the puke kept pouring out. "Mallory, are you OK?" Her mom asked as she must have heard her retching. "No, I can't go in today I feel awful." Mallory cryed, before vomiting again. "No I'll call in. You'll go back in a few days. Now go back to bed and I'll get the bucket for you just in case you can't make it here." Caroline said, Mallory being sick one more and hearing Caroline talk to David.
She called Lauren at pre lunch break and she advised her to take a pregnancy test, as she knew about what happened with Logan again and Ashleigh agreed when she called her a lunch break. Lauren came round after school, after Mallory stopped vomiting, and had a test pack with her for Mallory to take. Even though this wasn't what she wanted, she could bring herself to abort if she was pregnant because Logan would be so upset. She took the whole 3 tests in the pack, as there were minor malfunctions with the first one but they all had a result: positive 12+.
Mallory was 3 months pregnant. College began in 6 months and by then she probably will have given birth. She called Ashleigh to tell her and then called Logan, who was actually pleased about it as it meant she could return to California and they could live together but she could make the decison to keep or not. She some how managed to tell her parents before bursting into tears, but they said she could do whatever she wanted and they would happily pay for bills or an abortion. She decided to keep it, attend college still but with classes flexible with Logans parents as they would care for it when they were at UCLA classes so it was really working out. Mallory could still have her dream of fashion design and retail and Logan could still do his sport teaching course to become a phys ed teacher or personal trainer, whatever her liked. This baby was definitely what Mallory didn't want but it had to happen.
