3 Weeks Later
"Man, I'm so excited for the spring formal." said Abby, as we were hanging up streamers in the gym.
"I know, it's going to be great." I said.
"Andy's, going to love you in your dress." she said.
"Ugh, I hope I'll be feeling better by then." I said, picking up my water.
"Still throwing up?" she asked.
"Yeah, it's so weird too, I'll be perfectly fine one minute then throwing up the next." I said.
"That is kind of weird." she said.
"Ugh, and all this water is making me have to pee a whole bunch." I said, getting up to go to the bathroom.
I walked out into the hallway and into the bathroom. After I was done I went to wash my hands when something caught my eye. It was a tampons dispenser. I didn't even know the last time I had gotten mine. I began counting the days in my head. I realized that I was ten days late.
I ran out of there to find Kyle. I found him blowing up balloons with some of his friends.
"I need to talk to you in private." I said, coming up to him.
"What is it?" he asked.
"Just come with me." I said, leading him to the corner with the fountains.
"Did you use anything the night we were together?" I asked.
"No, you're on the pill, so why would I?" he asked, looking confused.
"What!? I am not on the pill." I whisper, furiously.
"So why didn't you stop me?" he asked, getting upset.
"I was drunk and I thought you had something." I said.
"Why are you bringing it up now?" he asked.
"Because I think I'm pregnant." I said.
"What? You think or you know?" he asked.
"I'm not sure yet. I'll need to take a test." I said.
"We can get one after we're done." he said.
"No, I'm going to get one now and you can come or not." I said, walking off.
"It's not that big of deal." he said, following me.
"Yes, it is. I would like to know if I am pregnant or not." I said.
"Alright. There's a little connivence store around the corner. We can do it there." he said.
We walked in silence to the store and once we got there, we purchased the test and I went to the bathroom to take the test. When I was done I let him in to the family restroom and we waited for it to take the minute it needed.
"You should have told me you weren't protected." said Kyle.
"You should have told me, you didn't have a condom." I fired back.
"Don't act like this is all my fault." he said.
"It's some of your fault." I said.
"I know, but it's yours too, and you can't say it isn't."
"I know." I said, tears forming in my eyes.
"Don't cry, it'll be okay." he said, gathering me in his arms.
"No, it won't. I'm only 15 and by the time the baby's born I'll only be 16." I said, into his chest.
"We don't even know if it's positive yet, and if it is, we don't have to have it." he said.
"You mean abortion?" I asked.
"Yeah." he said.
"I don't want to have an abortion." I said.
"Yeah, well I don't want to be a dad at 16." he said, letting me go.
"You probably already are a dad, so get over it. There's still adoption." I said.
"So you want to have this baby?" he asked.
"Yeah, I do. I'm not exactly sure what I'm going to do after." I said.
"Like I said, we don't even know yet." he said, as the timer on my phone went off.
"Looks like we're about to find out." I said.
"Do you want to look or do you want me to?" he asked.
"I will." I said, picking it up.
"Whatever happens we're going to be ok." he said.
"I hope so." I said, then looking at it.
"What does it say?" he asked, after a second.
"It's positive." I said, tears streaming down my face.
How was I going to tell my parents or Andy? My life couldn't possibly get any worse.
