3. Chapter 3-The Truth Hurts

All day Abby had one thing on her mind, how James was going to take the news, and how she was going to tell her family. The last bell rang and Abby got up out of her seat and got to her locker as fast as she could. She placed all of her materials in side the locker and took out her homework, just as she was going to close her locker and felt someone's hands wrap around her waist from behind her. "Hey baby." James whispered in her ear. Abby felt butterflies in her stomach as she turned around to kiss her boyfriend. "Hey, do you have all your things?" She asked James as she shut her locker door "Yeah, you ready to go?" Abby nodded her head and they walked out of the school doors and headed towards the parking lot.

 James opened the passenger car door for his girlfriend and closed it once she was inside and had her seat belt on, he ran around the front of the car to the driver's side and climb in to the vehicle. He started that car and pulled out of the school parking lot, and onto the main road. James grabbed Abby's hand as he drove down the street, towards her house. As they turned onto her street Abby finally got the nerve to speak. "Hey J?" She said quietly. He pulled up in front of her house and parked the car. "Yes?" 

"Um, I kinda have something to tell you." She said fidgeting with her hands in her lap. "What is it?" He asked quickly, his voice full of concern. Abby looked up at him, "I um, I'm." Abby couldn't get the words out of her mouth. They were stuck in her throat and she could feel tears in her eyes. "What? Did you cheat on me or something?" He asked anger raising in his voice.

"No!"  Abby yelled whipping her head around to look at him, "No, nothing like that. I'm uh, I'm pregnant." She whispered. James' eyes widened and stared at his girlfriend. "You're what?" He asked. "I'm pregnant." Abby said again, tears were starting to fall down her cheeks as she looked up at her boyfriend. His eyes held so much anger and surprise in them.

"No." He said, looking at her. "No you're not."  He yelled angrily. "Yes, I am. I'm so sorry." Abby started sobbing. She reached out to touch him but he moved away. "Stop lying to me! It's not funny Abby!" He screamed at her. Abby desperately tried to reason with her boyfriend. "James, I'm not lying to you. I'm sorry, I don't want to be a mother and I'm sure you don't want to be a father right now."

"No, that kid is not mine Abby. No way in hell is it mine. You were probably sleeping with some other guy the whole time!" He screamed hitting his fist on the steering wheel. "I didn't cheat on you James, you were my first."  James laughed at her. "I bet I wasn't the last." 

"James, you know that I wouldn't cheat on you! I never slept with anyone else!" Abby shrieked. She couldn't believe he thought that she was cheating on him, that she was a whore. "Stop lying to me! Get out!" He yelled at her. "James please!'" She begged him. Why wouldn't he just listen to her, she would never hurt him, or lie to him. "GET OUT OF MY CAR!" Abby was finding it hard to breathe, she was choking and trying to gasp for air. "Please." She whispered. "GET OUT!" 

Abby pushed open the car door and stumbled out with her bag falling behind her. James reached over to slam the door shut. And started the car, Abby looked up at the car crying and screaming at him to listen to her. He sped away down the street and out of sight as Abby stayed there in the grass of her front yard crying. She lied back on the grass and hit the ground, she just wanted him to believe her so she wouldn't be alone.




Abby had been in her room all night, normally when she heard her brother come home she would go out and greet him, but not tonight. She was scared that her brother would take one look at her and know what had happened, that he would know she was pregnant. She stayed in her room until her dd called her out for dinner. She stalked out of her room and towards the dinning room and took her seat across from her brother. 

Her dad and Luke brought the food to the table, and took their places. "So how's school?" Luke asked his younger sister. "Uh, it's fine." 

"Good." They started their meal and exchanged small talk, asking each other about their day. Luke was head of his college class and was passing all classes with flying colors. Once they finished their meal Abby gathered all the dishes and brought them to the sink to wash them off and put them in the dishwasher. Luke and her dad went out into the living room to watch t.v. and talk. 

Abby placed the last glass into the dishwasher and put the soap in to run it. She whipped her hands off on the back of her pants and decided it was now or never. Time to tell Luke and her dad the news. She took a deep breathe and walked out into the living room, "Hey, um can I talk to you guys?" Abby nervously asked her family. 

Her father muted the t.v, "Yeah, sure honey. What is it?" Luke was looking at his sister trying to read her face. He knew something really bad had happened, just by the loo on her face.  "I'm, I'm pregnant." She came right out and said it. She looked from her dad to her brother, her brother's jaw was clenched and he had both his hands in fists. Her dad's expression was unreadable, he seemed like a robot. 

"You're what!?" He brother yelled, getting up from his seat and staring at his sister. He wasn't sure he had heard her right. "I'm pregnant." Luke's face turned red and if steam could come out of a person's ears like in cartoons surly that would be happening. "James? I am going to kill him!" 

Their dad finally spoke up, "Who is this James?" Luke laughed, "Her lousy excuse of a boyfriend." That hurt Abby, he may have denied Abby when she told him, but he wasn't a bad guy. "He got you pregnant?" He dad asked her calmly.

Abby just nodded her head. "Does he know?" She nodded her head again. Her dad was so calm for some reason, it was very strange. "And is he understanding of this?" This time she didn't nod, a single tear fell from her eye and she looked up at her dad. "I'm going to kill that idiot!" Her brother screamed. "Luke, calm down." Her father said sternly to his son. 

"How are you not mad? You're only daughter is pregnant and the father doesn't want the kid! He doesn't care!" Luke yelled at his dad. Their  father stood up and looked at his son,"I am mad, I'm so disappointed  in her. But I'm not going to yell at her, I'm sure she isn't pleased with what happened. I don't want my 17 year old daughter having a baby!" 

Abby couldn't hold back the tears, knowing how mad her family was, her dad saying right in front of her that he was disappointed in her. She turned around and ran to her room, slamming the door and falling onto her bed. She screamed and cried into her pillow, there was a soft knock  at her door a few minutes later.  "Go away!" She screamed. The door opened and the person walked over to her bed and sat down next to her, "Abby, please look at me." Luke pleaded with his sister. 

She lifted up her head and looked at her brother,  "I'm sorry I yelled. I know you probably aren't happy with what is going on. I know it probably isn't easy right now, but we will get through it."

Abby grabbed her brother and hugged him, "I don't know what I am going to do! I can't be a mother! I'm too young!" Luke rubbed her back trying to sooth his distraught sister. "I know Abs, I know."
