Thank you to all of the people who made our wonderful banners.
I’m shaking but manage to get it open and take it out. I read the instructions and does as it says. I put it on the sink and wait... Waiting seems like an eternity yet it also seems like 2 seconds. I closed my eyes and picked it up and brought the test to my face. I waited there for a while then finally opened my eyes. Pregnant, I was pregnant. I dropped the test on the floor (luckily my parents weren’t home so no one heard me drop it.)
I put my hands over my mouth. I dropped to my knees on my bathroom floor with my hands still buried in my face, and then… I started to cry.
I don’t know how long I waited there waiting for my body to take control of myself. It felt like days, as I glanced at my watch I was disappointed when I realized it had nearly been an hour. An hour since I discovered I was pregnant. A 6 year old, in a 16-year-old’s body. If I was normal maybe I could fathom this, but how am I suppose to live with this.
I heard someone enter the house downstairs. I prayed to whatever god there was that it wasn’t my parents.
“Aryn? Where are you?” I heard Mason call.
“I’m in the bathroom, don’t come in.” I barely managed to yell so he could hear me all the way downstairs.
I heard him make his way up the stairs and approach the bathroom door. “What’s wrong?”
“Nothing, go away.” I started to cry once more. How is he going to take this? Is he going to be full of joy or in complete denial?
“Aryn, open this door right now or I will kick it down.” he threatened.
Maybe some clues would help him so I wouldn’t have to full out tell him. “I’m sitting against this door, if you knock it down your going to hurt us.”
I nearly yelled.
“Who’s in there with you?” he demanded.
“Your not getting the point!” I yelled through the door.
“Then tell me god dammit!” I can’t take this anymore.
I opened the door to see a very angry and confused Mason at the door. He looked into the bathroom to see no one there.
“I thought you said someone was in there with you?”
“I did.” I stated, hopping he would understand where I was going with this.
“Then where is he or she?”
I looked down to my stomach and laid my hands over my abdomen. “Right here.” I whispered, I could feel the tears running down my face.
“Oh.” Was all he said? I was worried he was upset with me. It took all my will power to look up to see his face.
He had the biggest smile I have ever seen him have. “Say something, please.” I begged from him, the silence was everlasting.
He grabbed me in a hug and whispered in my ear, “I love you.” Which made me cry more. Maybe this wouldn’t be so bad, with him by my side.
“Why would you be worried about this? Do you not want this?” he placed his hand on my stomach, looking down, eyes pleading.
I felt my baby move when he spoke. She stopped when he stopped talking. “Say that again.” I pleaded. As I placed my hands over his and pushed harder, “Just say it again.”
“What are you doing?” he asked me, very confused.
I felt her move again, “Did you feel that?” I asked smiling up to him. His eyes were full of joy as he saw my heartwarming smile.
“Yeah, yeah I did.” I reached up onto my toes and hissed him as passionately as possible. Just then we heard the door downstairs open.
“Aryn, can you come here? Me and your mother have important news.” Uh oh. Maybe they knew I was having this baby.
“Time to face the Calvary my love.” I whispered and chuckled as Mason removed himself from my body.
We walk downstairs hand in hand; I saw my mother and father sitting on the couch with big yet worried smiles brightening their faces. “What’s going on mom?”
“Please sit down darling.” My mother replied her worried tone scared me.
I sat next to her on the couch and waited for an explanation as to why they are happy and excited.
“Aryn, you know we love you, and I don’t want you to feel left out with what we are about to tell you…”
I nodded a sign of recognition as Mason squeezed my hand.
My mom was about to say something but no words came out. “Alec?” she pleaded for him to continue.
“Aryn, your getting a new baby brother. Your mother is pregnant, we didn’t want you to feel left out in the next couple of months to a year. Cause things are going to be a little crazy around here.” I looked to Mason, maybe now would be the best time to tell my parents that we are having a baby.
“Go ahead.” He whispered with a small smile on his lips.
“You don’t have to worry about me feeling left out, because Mason and I are going to be a little busy ourselves…” I waited hoping they would catch on; my mother spoke first.
“Aryn, are you telling me what I think you are?” she looked generally worried but my father. He had that look in his eye, the ‘you touched my baby girl’ look as he was glaring at my Mason.
“I’m pregnant,” I looked into Mason’s eyes, “We’re having a baby.” I finished my sentence, as tears of joy rolled down my cheek. I heard my father growl as my mother fell completely silent.
