"Miss Malyon?" The nurse called. Luke shot up and carried me to the room where he laid me on the bed. Tears were streaming down my face. I imagine that mascara was also dripping in patterns on my cheeks. My back hurt so bad, and I was so scared for the baby!
"Please tell me that it's just shock! That the baby's ok!" I cried. The nurse looked me in the eye and in walked a doctor with a machine.
"Ok, so, we're going to give you a CT scan to make sure everything is well with the baby." He said. Luke and I nodded, Jason looked like he was in shock. I've never been so scared in my whole life! The doctor looked curiously at the screen and then at me. "The baby is still alive.... But, he or she now has a high chance of having Down syndrome. Would you like to abort?" How fucking dare he! That is so cruel. I started to cry and grabbed Luke.
"Tell him no! How fucking dare he!" I whispered to him. I've now turned my fear into rage. Why would anyone ever abort a child, whether they might have a disability or not. Everyone deserves a happy life!
"No doctor. We would most certainly not like to abort! That baby will be perfect no matter what! He or she will be perfect to us and we'll love them with all our heart! Nothing could ever change that!" Luke cried. How sweet! I hugged him tighter and the doctor had a smile on his face.
"How wonderful. And funny you should say "them"... You're having twins! Only one of them has a chance of having Down syndrome, it can not be absolutely certain that both will survive this pregnancy with you still being a teen. I'm sorry, and congratulations!" He said. What?... No way! Jason now looks even more shocked, me and Luke match his expression. This is gonna be even harder to explain to mom...
