19. Hard pill to swallow

"You're home. What's wrong" She asked.


"It's something, I can tell something's bothering you. Do you wanna talk about it"

"No" I said she nodded and went back into the room. I sighed getting up following her taking my shirt off. Emily laid back down on the bed. I turnt around and she started back crying. I went over to the bed sitting next to her.

"I know it's hard but we have to get over it"

"It's been over two months"

"I know that but it's better to move on and you have to get back to school. I'm pretty sure Justin and Amber misses you. You can't hide here forever it's not what she would've wanted"

"I'm gonna do what I have to do and this is what I have to do" She said.

"No it's not you're better than this sitting here eating, feeling depressed isn't going to make you feel any better. I could call your doctor to get you pills-"

"I don't want any pills to make me feel better!"

"Then what do you want" I asked.

"I want our daughter back"

"It wasn't meant to be, it's all Chelsea's fault that you fell"

"No it's not her fault it's my fault because I wasn't getting enough sleep and I was stressed because of everyone telling me this and that"

"Doesn't mean you had to listen to them Emily! Do you know how this makes me feel? I was gonna be a father, do you know how bad I wanted to hold her, how happy I was thinking she was gonna make it, that we were going to be the perfect little family that everyone would want. But there's nothing we can do to bring her back. I love her, I love you. I'm still here with you throughout everything we've been through. I'm still here with you trying to get over what happened. Do you know how hard it is on me, have you ever thought of someone else other than yourself" I said getting up sliding on a shirt leaving the room going into Malory's room seeing what was left. I knew it was now that it was time to break down and cry even though dad told me not to. I was angry and full with rage that I couldn't take it anymore. A couple of tears escaped from my eyes running down my cheek I looked up and seen a small book shelf beside the bed knocking the books down, everything that was in sight I would either knock it down or throw it onto the floor.

"I'm sorry" I heard Emily say as she held me tightly from behind. I gripped my hands onto the rail of the baby bed calming myself down. I took a deep breath cleaning my face facing Emily. I could see fear in her eyes and she's never seen me act like this. We hugged for quite a while till she let go.

"I need some fresh air" I said walking out the room grabbing my jacket leaving. I called Justin to come to the club with me to have a couple of drinks, honestly it's because I had no one else to call.

"You're back, she isn't doing to good huh?" He asked.

"No. I need you or Amber to talk to her my dad talked to her, her parents I even talk to her including having sex with her to keep her from crying but, that's not helping so I just broke down I couldn't take anymore"

"I talked to her Jake. You love her, she needs you it's hard on all of us. Did you want this"

"Yes. I did want this I didn't want to graduate and keep having sex with different girls to make me feel better about my mom dying. That's not going to change anything because there's nothing I can do or anyone can do to get her back! Her or Malory" I said.

"Ambers already over your place to talk to her I knew that since you called me something was wrong so, she's over there now. It takes time it's been two months. I'm worried that she's not coming back to school but maybe she's afraid to face everyone"

"She can't live in that house forever it's not what Malory would want. I've moved on and I wanted this more than Emily wanted it. I got a letter today...from the Air Force I applied a year ago and they're saying I got accepted. I don't want to go but I have to I haven't told Emily so don't tell anyone I'll tell her soon"

"Holy shit. When are you leaving" He asked.

"In about a week. It's gonna be hard but I want you to keep Emily happy, I mean in a friend way"

"I know what you meant, she's gonna be heartbroken"

"Yeah, I know" I said. Once Justin and I got finished drinking I went home seeing Emily on the little balcony in a black lingerie looking up at the stars. I sighed and went out with her wrapping my arms around her waist.

"Where do you think she is" She asked.

"I don't know. But I know my mom is taking care of her" I said and she turnt around. "You look beautiful" I said smiling.

"I washed up and everything. Amber and Justin said I needed to bath so I put on some make up and they also told me to get myself together. Could we talk" She asked.

"I think that'll be great" I said she smiled. We went into the living room and sat down on the couch.

"I know that these past few months have been horrible for you, I've been horrible to you and I apologize for that. I want to thank you for letting me experience what it feels like to be a mother. And I thank you for not leaving me even though I always tell Amber that you'll leave me, or you want out. I'm so thankful that you didn't. I just want you to know that I'm going to need time to figure out everything, I just need time that's all I need" She said and I nodded.


"I'm also apologizing for making you cry. I've noticed that you never cry and I can tell I hurt your feelings"

"I just broke down from everything it's not just you my dad, or Malory it's everything. Just thinking about the past and now it's- it's challenging for me. But I don't think that you'll have time to get over Malory" I said.

"What do you mean"

"I have to leave Emily" I said.

"No you don't I thought you-"

"This is different. It's about the military. I signed up a year ago and they're just now getting back to me. I applied when my dad and I got into this huge fight we ended up fighting till the cops came and took us down town, I got let go. I got tired of his shit so I signed up and this was way before I got you pregnant, I don't want to leave but I'm going to try to let my dad fix this so I won't go. I don't want to, it was a stupid choice of me now I fucked up"

"When are you suppose to be leaving" She asked calmly.

"Next week" I said. She took a deep sigh getting up.

"So what does this mean, you're going to be gone for so long we have no choice but to get divorced" She asked.

"I love you"

"And I love you Jake but I can't"

"Don't say you can't, you can, I'm not letting you go. And I'm not going to let any other girl replace the feelings I have for you no matter how many other people I date I'll still love you Emily. I'll wait, wait long as it takes"

"So we're breaking up now"

"Not now just, when I leave. I hate saying this but I have no other choice it's not going to work out with me fighting and you're still in school and everything. You have a whole life ahead of you"

"I want you in my life"

"I am in your life Emily always will be. Maybe when I'm gone you'll figure out everything" I said she sat back down beside me playing with her thumbs. I wanted to see my dad soon as possible so he could try to fix this maybe there's hope, maybe it's not but the hardest thing to loose is you."

"I don't want you to go" She said hugging me tightly. "I can't loose you too" She added starting to cry I held her for a good ten minutes. It was midnight she cried herself to sleep. I carried her to the bed laying her down. I wasn't tired to go to sleep so I went over to dads ringing the doorbell.

"Do you know what time it is" He asked tying his robe.

"I need your help" I said. He invited me inside sitting at the table he gave me a cup of coffee sitting down in front of me. We started talking I know how stupid I was sounding telling him about this serious situation.

"Is there something you can do"

"Do you want to go to jail because if you don't go you can end up there. I can't do anything but you shouldn't have done that you can't get out of something like this. I mean if they really need you then you have no choice but to go or either go to jail till the war is over with so, what are you gonna do"

"I don't want to leave Emily she's already upset she just cleant herself up and everything but I hate I told her" I said.

"It's better than keeping it a secret she's gonna miss you, we all are. I know it's my fault that this happened and I apologize"

"It's okay,I'll have to just live with that"

"How are you feeling about Malory"

"I still think about her just wish I knew what she looked like. I guess it wasn't meant to be" I said.

"Maybe it was maybe it wasn't. Do you want to try again"

"No. We talked about it but I don't think she wants to go through it, she hasn't been going to school because she's just too depressed but I don't know maybe she'll go soon. Guess I have to get ready to leave Monday" I said leaving.

Emily's POV

When I woke up it was 7 in the morning, I rubbed the side of the bed and Jake wasn't there I honestly wanted to wrap my arm around him while he held me playing in my hair. I needed that and I definitely don't want to loose him but I guess I'll have to. I couldn't sleep anymore so I got up and took a shower letting the warm water fall onto my body. I washed myself off brushing my teeth putting my hair in a messy bun calling Amber and Justin over, if they wasn't to busy liplocking. I got into a swimming suit making snacks for the three of us. When they came they went straight out to the pool while I finished the sandwiches. I felt arms wrap around my waist and a wet kiss on my neck I smiled and turnt around.

"Hey where have you been"

"Been over my dads" He said.

"Any luck"

"He can't do anything. Either I go or go to jail" He said and I sighed.

"I'm sorry"

"Don't be, it's my fault he thought it was his fault but it was mines too. I was just too pissed to be in the same house as him and I thought that hopefully they would contact me in days but now I guess they decided to get to me. I'm sorry Emily"

"It's okay I get it. When I woke up I wanted you to hold me and tell me everything was going to be okay"

"It is going to be okay" He said kissing my forehead.

"We don't know that and were separating I can't loose you not after loosing Malory. But I guess you have to"


"You seem tired haven't gotten any sleep" I said turning back around.

"No too busy running around all night"

"Well you should sleep maybe that'll take some stress off of you. You're not the only one with stress" I said.

"There's a way we could both take some stress off" He said kissing my neck, picking me up taking me to the bedroom. I laughed a little while he pushed me down on the bed taking his jacket off. He climbed over my body roughly kissing my neck, I moaned lightly wrapping my arms around his neck. We looked eachother in the eyes we both smiled and I kissed him softly.

"I'm gonna miss you" I said.

"Let's not think about that alright" He said and I nodded. After Jake and I had sex he held me while playing in my hair. I kissed his chest cuddling up next to him.

"What are we gonna do" I asked.


"You leaving. I can't stop talking about it I want to know before you leave" I said.

"Well we'll have to just get through it. I know that we don't want to go our separate ways but it's better to do that than y'know being together."

"Signing divorce papers is the second most hardest things that I'll ever do. I don't want to loose you"

"You won't loose me Emily I'll still be around and I will always love you no matter who else I marry or get into a relationship with" He said kissing my fingers.

"I'm not taking this ring off"

"You don't have to, I'm not taking mines off either it's a memory of you when I leave. Maybe you'll save my life out there" He said with a small chuckle. "I want you to go to school, for me it's your senior year"

"Fine, I'll go I was just so depressed because of loosing our daughter and now loosing you"

"It wasn't meant to be and I'll be okay. I'll write to you every day promise me you'll write back" He said.

"I promise. Thank you for changing my life"

"Thanks for changing mines, I don't know what I would do if you didn't, these past months with you have been a journey we both learned something from eachother"

"Yeah if it wasn't for Justin or Amber- holy shit Justin and Amber" I said sitting up holding the sheet over myself putting my bathing suit on. "You get some sleep" I said and kissed him getting out of bed.

"Love you"

"Love you too" I said and smiled leaving the room. I went back to Amber and Justin sitting down next to them.

"How was Jake" Amber said while her and Justin laughed.

"What are you talking about"

"Oh please when I went to get snacks I heard moaning. You're gonna miss him huh"

"Yeah we both talked about separating even though it's so hard to but it's what we have to do. I love him and I always will"

"Wow..dick got you that way" She said chuckling with Justin.

"I hope so" Jake said coming out the bedroom zipping his pants. I scoffed and hit his chest with the back of my hand.

"You're suppose to be sleeping"

"I can't go to sleep not after we had great sex but think about it, I want to spend more time with you guys, it's like a nightmare and I can't wake up. Every time I do think about leaving it, it does something to me and that scares me the fact that I have to leave. I didn't want this to happen, I wish I could go back and redo this- the right way but, I can't"

"It sucks to see you go, it seems like the end of things. End of friendship, relationship- we will miss you" Amber said hugging him.

"It's a hard pill to swallow but I'll be okay. We're family, and I love you" He said smiling. I couldn't hold back the tears, I felt like crying all over again. I had to do something.
