~~Gohan’s POV Continued~~
I woke up the next morning and sat up slowly. I decided to call my father and invite him and Vegeta over for lunch. I had to tell him the good news. Actually I had two things to tell him. One, I was getting married and two, I’m pregnant with my first child. To be honest I was kind of worried about his reaction to this but I was sure that he’d support me no matter what. As I began to get dressed, I suddenly realized that this was actually the second time I had ended up pregnant. The first time…it didn’t end too well… Then I suddenly remembered that I hadn’t told Tarro a thing about my past and what happened to me before I met him. I had only told my father and Vegeta. I’d have to tell him about that later on.
Once I was dressed, I grabbed my phone and made my way out of the room to call my father. Tarro was still asleep and I didn’t want to wake him up or anything. I made my way down to the living room and dialed my father’s phone number. I held the phone to my ear and waited as it rang and rang. I was about to hang up when he finally answered.
“Hello…?” He asked, sounding groggy.
“Hey dad. I’m really sorry I woke you up.” I say, feeling a bit bad.
“Oh hey Gohan. Don’t worry about it. I was beginning to worry about you because I haven’t heard from you in a while.” He replied.
“Sorry I haven’t called. I know you’ve been busy with the twins so I didn’t want to disturb you. But anyways, if you’re free later this afternoon, I’d love it if you and the family could come down for lunch.” I say, hoping for a yes.
“Sure! I’d love too!” He exclaimed.
“Alright, come down around three. I’ll make sure lunch is ready.” I say happily.
“See you then, Gohan!” He replied.
Once I hung up the phone, I glanced at the clock. It was eleven o’clock. My dad would be here in about four hours so I’d have to make sure to get Tarro up, get lunch done, and make sure the house is cleaned up. Since I hadn’t been feeling good for a while, the tidiness of the house had started to fall. I decided that was where I was going to start. I began to pick up the living room, making sure to get any dirty clothes into the laundry and making sure to dust everything so that it was spotless. Once I was done with the living room, I made my way to the kitchen and did all of the dishes that were in the sink, knowing that I’d have to do a bunch later tonight. After the dishes were done, I cleaned off the counter and the table and then made my way to other parts of the house. While I was cleaning, I made sure to baby proof as much as I could since the twins were coming over with dad. Crimson and Dimitri were pretty smart for infants, but I still didn’t want them to get hurt. I needed to baby proof the house anyways because in a few months, Tarro and I would be having our own little bundle of joy to protect.
I had finally finished all of the cleaning. I sighed and looked at the time. It was one o’clock. I had two hours before my dad got here so I decided to go wake up Tarro and then start on lunch. I made my way up the stairs and entered the bedroom. I chuckled softly when I saw Tarro still passed out on the bed. He looked so peaceful in his sleep. Such a shame that I had to wake him up. Without any more delay, I flew to the side of the bed and jumped up onto it. I then began jumping up and down and laughing.
“Hey handsome! It’s time for you to get up!” I exclaimed as I began to jump harder. I heard him groan and then his hand suddenly shot up, grabbing my wrist tightly. I gasped loudly as I was pulled down onto the bed, protecting my stomach with my free arm as I fell. To my relief, I landed on my knees. I laughed loudly and he suddenly looked up at me with a smirk on his face.
“Someone’s hyper this morning.” He grinned as he leaned up and pecked my cheek.
“Well, my dad and his family are going to be here in a couple hours for lunch. I invited them over so I could tell them about the baby and our engagement.” I reply, giving him a gentle smile.
“Very well. I suppose I should get up and help you make lunch.” He replied and sat up, stretching out his muscles. He then leaned down to my stomach and nuzzled it softly.
“It’s so hard to believe that there’s a little baby in there.” I say softly.
“But there is and soon, he or she will be here with us. To be honest, I hope it’s a girl. I’ve always wanted a daughter.” He replied quietly.
“We’ll be able to find out the gender really soon. Saiyan babies grow a lot faster than human babies. I’d say in a few weeks we’ll know what it is.” I replied as I kissed his forehead. He smiled at me again and then stood up. He made his way over to the dresser and pulled on a pair of jeans and a t-shirt. He then pulled me off of the bed and the two of us made our way to the kitchen to begin cooking lunch.
After my family and I were done eating lunch, I took them to the living room. I sat beside Tarro on the couch, while my dad and Vegeta sat in one of the arm chairs, my father on Vegeta’s lap. Trunks and Goten had taken the twins to one of the spare rooms to play so the adults could have a talk. I was really nervous about telling my dad, but I couldn’t back out now. Heck I had already invited them over here so I had to tell him now. No going back. I looked over at my dad and Vegeta, giving them a slight smile.
“I’m really glad you guys could make it today. It was great seeing you again.” I say happily, leaning against Tarro’s chest.
“We’re really glad you invited us, Gohan. We really miss you at home.” My dad replied, giving us a soft smile.
“Well besides wanting to see you guys again, I’ve got some news to tell you two.” I say, lowering my voice slightly.
“What kind of news, Gohan?” My dad asked, sounding slightly excited. I glanced back at Tarro for support and he just nodded, giving me a small smile. I returned his smile and looked back at my dad and his husband.
“Well the first thing is…Tarro and I are finally engaged! He and I are going to be getting married in a few months!” I say excitedly. I watched my dad’s eyes light up and he then jumped off Vegeta’s lap and rushed over to me, hugging me tightly.
“I’m so happy for you, Gohan! I can’t believe you two are finally getting married!” He exclaimed.
“So what’s the other news, Gohan?” Vegeta asked curiously. I glanced at him and forced my dad to sit down beside me.
“Right, the other news. The other news is that…I’m pregnant…” I just barely managed to squeak that out, but it was loud enough for my dad and Vegeta to hear. They both just stared at me, their eyes wide with concern. Since they both knew about what happened before I got with Tarro, it was only natural that they’d be worried.
“Y-you’re pregnant!?” My dad choked out. I just nodded and took his hand, placing it on the small bump in my stomach. He stared at me with wide eyes before finally managing to smile. He pulled me into another tight hug and held me tightly.
“I am dad…” I say softly, returning his hug. Vegeta also came over and hugged me along with my father.
“This is wonderful news Gohan.” Vegeta whispered softly. They both pulled away from me and gave me a concerned look.
“You do know that you need to tell, Tarro about your past, right son?” My dad asked cautiously. I nodded.
“I know dad. He and I are going to talk about it later tonight after you guys leave. He knows about most of it, but there is something I left out that he needs to know about.” I replied, giving them both a soft smile. I glanced over at Tarro, who was looking at me with a very concerned expression. I just smiled reassuringly at him and he nodded in response. The rest of the visit went by smoothly, granted the whole time I kept pondering about how I was going to tell Tarro that after I was raped that day by Videl’s friends, I ended up pregnant and lost the baby. The thought of that caused me to worry about the baby I was carrying now. I was worried that something may happen to it if I’m not careful. Thinking about that made me tense up a bit, but I tried to remain calm. Panic wasn’t good for the baby, so that was the last thing I wanted to do.
The time came for my dad and his family to head home. I walked them all to the door while Tarro made his way to the kitchen to clean up the dishes. I ended up following them outside and both my dad and Vegeta turned toward me. My dad had Crimson in his arms and Vegeta had Dimitri. I looked at them with a really worried expression.
“Guys…I’m really afraid to tell him about that…” I say quietly.
“Gohan, it will be alright. He’ll understand.” Vegeta said, placing a hand on my shoulder.
“You really think so, Vegeta?” I ask softly.
“I know so, son. He loves you very much, that much I know. Hell I could see nothing but concern on his face when you mentioned that there was something you didn’t tell him. You just have to trust that he’s going to still be with you, which I know he will.” Vegeta smiled and kissed my forehead. I smiled back at him and glanced over at my dad.
“If anything bad happens…please call me right away Gohan. I’ll be here in a heartbeat to help you.” My dad smiled and hugged me tightly. I returned his hug and then said goodbye to the two of them, as well as Trunks and Goten. Once they were gone, I made my way back inside, closing the door behind me. I leaned against the door for a minute and sighed quietly. God…I’m so worried about his reaction…but I have to tell him. I don’t have any other choice now. I thought to myself. I nodded my head slightly and made my way to the kitchen. It was time for him to know about the baby and everything else I had gone through after I had gotten raped. I just hoped that he’d still love me afterwards.
