I guess we’re just meant to be.
Woah… that’s a bridge too far, even for you. I raised a sly brow. What’s up?
Can’t a girl be happy?
Well, I didn’t mean anything by…
I should be so lucky as to kick your ass to the curb?
But you won’t.
Because I can’t.
First, I love you, and it’s like this…
Don’t tell me you’re pregnant.
Would you relax? We used protection.
I wiped my forehead and let out a sigh I didn’t know existed.
But it broke. And I am, in fact, pregnant.
I knew it.
Don’t want it?
I do. I nodded.
Don’t lie to me.
I wanted to go to college first and…
Too bad. Jenna cupped my cheeks and kissed me. You can do both. You can go to college and be a daddy.
A daddy. I dropped my head. I mean, sure, why not.
Hannah hugged me. I knew you’d understand.
I whispered I love you as though I meant it.
