You're my everything

It's hard to believe that a duo could have known each other for so long and still be together. Of course, it's not in the way Juno wants. Jervis was her everything..and she's determined to become his.

12. Chapter 12

  A day had passed, next thing I knew a week had passed, then another. Julia had visited me almost every day to make sure I was doing okay. Honestly, I wasn’t doing okay. I was in the midst of a mental breakdown and I had been puking for the past couple days. And that’s where I was now, over the toilet puking my guts out.

  The front door had opened, which was unbeknownst to me. Julia made her way through the house, calling out for me. I raised my head from the toilet for a brief moment attempting to answer her, but instead of answering her with words, she got the sounds of puking.

  “Juno?” She asked as she approached cautiously. I let out a barely audible ‘hi’ and tried to turn my head to look at her. She crouched down beside me, rubbing my back soothingly. I sat there for at least ten more minutes before my nausea calmed itself. I stood up, straightening out my pajamas and made my way to the sink to brush my teeth and wash away this awful taste.

  “How long has this been going on? Are you sick? Should I leave?” She inquired nervously. I shook my head, reaching for my red, satin pajama top which resided on the towel rack.

  “This started last week. It doesn’t last too long so I don’t think I’m sick.” I explained. She gave me a quizzical look.

  “Wait… this only happens in the morning?” She asked. With this, I realized just how little I thought about this. This really had only been happening in the morning… and it’s just now dawning on me that there may be a bigger problem here. I nodded shyly.

  “Shit…” She muttered. She grabbed her bag from off of the sink.

  “Get dressed.” She told me. I raised an eyebrow. She seemed to catch onto my confusion.

  “I’m taking you to a friend. She can help.” She told me as she grabbed her keys out of her bag. I nodded, following her out of the bathroom. I went into my room as she descended the stairs. My nerves were set on edge. I wasn’t sure how to feel about this. Julia helped me realize that something was wrong, and if it is what we’re thinking… I was going to be even more miserable. How would I do this without him knowing?

  I walked down the stairs and saw her waiting for me by the door. I was hesitant to go with her. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to know what was wrong with me. She smiled at me as we left my house, I couldn’t find it in me to smile back, however. She unlocked the doors to her car, climbing in and starting it up. I stood outside it for a few moments, realizing that I hadn’t left the house at all within the past few weeks. I finally climbed in, ready to find out what was wrong.

  “Hey, it’s gonna be okay.” She told me reassuringly. I nodded and focused on the road before us, leaving myself to my thoughts. Eventually, I recognized the roads we were taking, realizing that she was taking me to the GCPD. I panicked, turning to look at her worriedly as she pulled up to the building.

  “Why are you taking me here?” I asked nervously. She shook her head with a small smile.

  “Don’t worry, I’m not turning you in. Nor will I let them arrest you.” She reassured me. I nodded, climbing out of the car and making my way up the steps. Julia caught up, going in before me to search for her friend. I stood in the doorway awkwardly, hoping that man from the night Alice died wasn’t here. I knew he’d recognize me, and it frightened me.

  “Hey, come on. She’s in her office.” Julia told me, taking my hand and dragging me through the police station. We made it to the back, Julia opened the door slowly, peaking her head through the sliver of the door.

  “Lee?” She called. There was the sound of a rolling chair moving before a woman with dark hair and dark eyes walked up to the door. A smile made its way to her face as she recognized Julia. I found it hard to look away from her, she was gorgeous. Her skin had this natural glow to it and her eyes sparkled. She looked at me and I assumed Julia had just introduced me.

  “I trust you and I figured you’d cost less than a regular doctor.” Julia said as she walked past the person who I assumed was Lee. She sighed.

  “Julia… there are actual people who come here in need of immediate medical attention-” Lee started.

  “I’ll give you twenty bucks for this.” Julia offered. Lee sighed and her hand slid down the door slightly. She uttered something along the lines of ‘fine’ before turning around.

  “So, Juno’s been having a problem for the past week” Julia started, gesturing for me to come in. Lee walked back to her seat and I followed, approaching a seat near her desk. She pointed to it, crossing her legs and placing her hand on her knee.

  “Have a seat.” She told me. I nodded and sat down. Julia leaned against the counter, waiting patiently for everything to start.

  “So what’s going on?” She inquired. I awkwardly shifted in my seat, opening my mouth to say something, but Julia interrupted.

  “She’s been having morning sickness.” She told her. I looked away from the both of them, feeling awkward. Lee leaned forward.

  “Juno, how long has it been since you had your period?” She asked. I thought about it, it was true that I hadn’t had it in a while. The color from my face drained as I realized that it had been a little over a month.

  “Um…” I trailed off. She nodded, standing and digging in one of the desk drawers. I knew what was coming.

  “I think you should… um…” She held out a few pink sticks. I nodded, standing up and taking them out of her hand.

  “When you find out I’d like to know so I could check on you.” She told me, I nodded once more and made my way to the bathroom. Once I was done, we waited. I felt so awkward, I was sure I was the most awkward person there. I told them that I couldn’t look, so instead Julia went in to see, Lee waiting outside the door.

  Julia came out finally, glancing at me before whispering in Lee’s ear. She nodded before turning around and walking toward me. I felt as if I couldn’t breathe, what if I was? I wanted Jervis here. I wanted to cling onto his arm excited and await the results, but instead I was alone. Lee sat down across from me, no signs of what the test resulted in.

  “The tests were positive.” She began. I felt tears burning in my eyes, both of joy and sadness. I wasn’t sure what to say.

  “I would like to check on you in a few weeks. Come back here on this date” she scribbled the date onto a small piece of paper, ripping it off of the pad and handing it to me. I briefly glanced at it before putting it in my jacket pocket.

  “Thank you.” I said shyly. Julia put her arm over my shoulder and escorted us out the door.

  “Thanks again, Lee! I owe ya twenty bucks!” Julia shouted at her. I knew that I had to find Jervis. There was no way that I could live with this secret, he had to know. He had the right to know. We left the GCPD and made our way back to my house. I was happy, but at the same time I began to desperately miss Jervis.

  “Oh… and I saw Jervis earlier.” Julia began. My eyes widened as I looked at her. She showed no emotion as she focused on the road before us. I gulped, worried about what he might be up to.

  “A-and?” I asked nervously. She shook her head.

  “He was getting into a van. He had Valerie Vale. From what I knew, she was with Jim Gordon… quite honestly, I’m a bit worried about Lee.” She explained. I felt the tears again. He was serious, and an idiot. I wished he had stayed with me and stayed out of trouble instead of getting into more trouble.
