I walked into my small bedroom, knowing I'd never ever be the same. I looked at the small white plastic stick in my hand, and prayed that just once my life wouldn't be crappy. Praying that just once, things would turn out my way. Praying, that I wouldn't be pregnant.
Only 6 minutes until my future would be determined, six minutes until I knew whether or not I had ruined my 15 year old life in a matter of minutes. It wasn't even fun, although it wasn't my first time having sex it sure was the stupidest. I had never found sex to be fun, honestly. I just did it because he asked me to.
I don't have money, my family is broke… Pretty much as broke as you can get without being homeless to be completely honest. We've never had enough money to do anything with our house, it leaks, it creaks, and it stinks. But we just have to live with it.
I was fourteen when I met my boyfriend; he was 17 and was graduating from high school that year. I thought he was so handsome, but so out of my league. He asked me out one day and we've been together ever since. Well… most of the time. Sometimes we get into little fights, but we always end up working it out. Every relationship goes through rocky parts right?
I glanced at the clock, only a minute left.
I looked around my tiny bedroom, trying to find something to occupy my mind with. Otherwise I'd start flipping out again, and I really didn't need that right now.
I noticed my little sisters babies scattered across the floor, and picked a few of them up. Looking at the bald patches where she had decided they needed a haircut. My parents didn't believe in birth control, so even in their late 30's they were still having babies. But I guess I wasn't any better… They at least waited until they were married before they had me. But I had been careful, this whole relationship I had been the one to say "stop" if he didn't have a condom. I wasn't old enough to use birth control without parental consent, so that was the only thing stopping us from dealing with this situation. But one stupid time was all we needed to mess everything up. I looked down at the stick, knowing the results before I even saw the faint pink line.
