"So, what's Calum like?" asked Tess.
We were in Bailees room and we had just gotten done with our project.
"He's really great. He's really funny and super nice." said Bailee.
"Yeah, he is." I agreed.
"So when are they coming again?" asked Tess.
"Next month." said Bailee.
"I just can't wait!" squealed Tess.
"Yeah, me either." I mumbled, sarcastically.
"Have you thought about talking to him? Maybe you guys could work things out." said Tess.
"No, I don't need him, I will manage just fine on my own." I said.
"Alexa, you can't expect Sean to take care of a baby that isn't his." said Bailee.
"Sean will be going to college in a few months, so I'll tell people that I have full custody, but he still sends money to help support it." I said.
"How far along are you, anyway?" asked Tess.
"I'll be five months tomorrow." I said.
"Wait a minute, weren't they on tour around the time you conceived?" asked Tess.
"We were with them. I came back when I found out I was pregnant and Bailee came back about a month ago." I said.
"So, do you know if it's a boy or a girl?" asked Tess.
"I won't be able to find out until I'm at least six months." I said.
"What do you want it to be?"
"I would love to have a girl, but a boy would be nice too." I said.
"Have you thought about names at all?" asked Bailee.
"Well, if it's a boy, then Caden Daniel Smith, and if it's a girl Karlee Elizabeth Smith, except Karlee is spelled with a K." I said.
"Those are great." said Tess.
"Yeah, except maybe you should make their last names Hemmings not Smith." said Bailee.
"Smith is my last name and if Luke wanted the baby to have his last name then he would be here."
"Why do you always have to be so stubborn? Just call Luke." said Bailee, exasperated.
"No." I said.
"You are such a..." started Bailee, but before she could finish her phone rang.
"Who is it?" asked Tess.
"It's Michael." said Bailee, getting up and leaving the room to answer it.
"Can I ask you something?" asked Tess, when Bailee left.
"Sure." I said.
"Does Luke actually know or are you lying to Bailee about telling him?"
"No, Luke doesn't know and I don't want him to know."
"But why would you lie to Bailee about Luke knowing?" asked Tess.
"She would try to make me tell him or tell him herself." I said.
"You don't know that."
"Yes I do. She's almost as stubborn as I am. Maybe even more."
I stepped out into the hallway and answered the phone.
"Hello." I said.
"Hey, what's up. I miss you." said Michael.
"I miss you too." I said.
"I can't wait to see you when we get back." he said.
"Yeah, me either. Have you talked to Luke about coming back?" I asked.
"I've tried, but he doesn't want to. Maybe we should just tell him."
"No, Alexa will be mad if we tell him. It has to be her."
"Is she still sticking with the story that Luke knows?"
"Yeah, she won't tell me the truth because she thinks I will make her tell him." I said.
I knew that Alexa was lying about Luke knowing. At first I believed her, so I called MIchael and told him and he said Luke hadn't even mentioned her being pregnant. I knew then that she was lying.
"I seriously think we need to tell him." said Michael.
"No, I will figure something out."
I am going to get Luke and Alexa together, if it is the last thing that I do.
