AN: Set 5 months later…
The last few months had been a pain in the ass for me. I had been showing more and more and by now I was looking like a house, and I wasn't even 9 months pregnant yet! I can only imagine how fat I'm going to look when I get that far along. I'm almost 6 months pregnant now, so the only bright side is that we get to find out whether the baby is a boy or a girl. I can't wait for that, and Erik surprised me when he said that he wanted a baby girl. I thought it was really sweet, and he's been doing a lot of baby shopping online. We've only got some of the essentials, but I'm sure we'll be getting a hell of a lot more when we found out the sex of the baby. I was also extremely over joyed because I turned sixteen last month. It felt good to be sixteen at last, bar the fact that I was pregnant.
There had been loads of gossiping and those judging looks at school. It wasn't too bad though, I was in my last year and so were Erik and Freddie. Whenever they heard anything about me around the school they would put them in their place. I witnessed it once and I had never laughed harder. I also had a few looks from the neighbours but my mum sorted that out before she left a few months back. My dad still wasn't talking to me or to Freddie for that matter. He had just completely abandoned us. But I guess that didn't matter, who needs a fussy father when you have Erik? He hasn't stopped fussing, he's scared I'm going to get stressed with me being in my finale year so I've got my exams coming up and with the court case taking place in next few weeks…
"Morning beautiful" Erik whispers in my ear before placing gentle kisses up my neck. I turn my head a little so I can capture his lips with mine.
"I love it when you greet me like this in the morning" I admit as I carefully turn so I'm on my side facing him. I had to be careful of my baby bump, but Erik kept telling me that he loved my bump. He said it was great to be able to watch our baby grow. He automatically put his hand on my belly where I suddenly felt a slight kick, making both me and Erik laugh. This baby was a kicker, no doubt about it.
"So then, what are we doing this weekend?" Erik asks me and I think about it. I wanted something fun to do; I had to miss some of school yesterday to go meet with the people working on Jake's murders. They had a few last minute questions for me and they wanted to double check that I was still up for standing in the witness box.
"Well, we can do anything we want to. Freddie's off out to his interview, so we have the house to ourselves" I remind him and he gets that adorable mischievous grin on his face.
"I have a few ideas in mind, but I have a better one for now. We might use your idea a bit later on, but right now I thought we could go to the zoo" he suggests and I think it over.
"That sounds perfect" I applaud him before giving him another kiss. I break away from him reluctantly; if I was going out I needed to get a shower. Erik watched my every move as I left his bedroom, well our bedroom, to go to the bathroom. Yeah, it was our bedroom now. We decided to transform my room into the baby's room. I know that the baby has to stay with us for the first few months, but we needed somewhere to put all the baby toys. Plus we were going to repaint my room when we found out what sex the baby was. I really can't wait for Wednesday.
I watched as my sexy, beautiful, intelligent girlfriend left our room to get a shower. I still couldn't believe that I had her for a girlfriend, or that she was having my baby. Just being able to watch her stomach grow as our child develops makes my heart flutter. They are my everything and over these last few months it's been the only thing keeping me stable. My brother, as you probably already know, is in jail right now and is about to face court. Jake kept phoning me and sending me letters, trying to apologise. But I can never forgive him. Not after this; he's lost all the trust that I once had in him. But Jake wasn't the only problem. When I told my dad that I was with Poppy and she was pregnant, he went skitz at me over it. He kept telling me that I was a stupid twat for not using a condom and that I was an even bigger twat for not making her go on the pill.
My family was so broken that there was no hope in fixing it. Oh, and that floozy my dad used to call 'girlfriend', they broke up. My dad cheated on her with his supposed new 'girlfriend'. Not only that, but he's taking Jake's side in everything. He's gone all out to get Jake the best lawyer possible. I just couldn't believe him. Jake was a murderer, a kidnapper and a rapist; yet he still insisted that Jake was innocent. Poppy was a bloody victim but my dad insists that Poppy had voluntarily gone with Jake with the intentions of having sex with him. But she backed out last minute making Jake pissed. My dad can come up with some complete bullshit sometimes.
I shove those thoughts away as I drag myself out of bed and get changed. Maybe this trip to the zoo might cheer me up. And what cheered me up more was when I imagined the day we take our child to the zoo. That was a thought that definitely helped to cheer me up and what made even happier was when I saw Poppy come out of the bathroom. I walked over to her and kissed her with everything I had. She means the world to me and I don't think I could live without her.
"You look very sexy" I tell her as I sample her outfit.
"I so don't. I look like a house" she moans and I laugh at her a little bit.
"Only in your world" I assure her before leading her downstairs. We were going to have a proper breakfast before we went anywhere, especially when she's this far into the pregnancy.
