Chapter 7

It was February. To be more specific, February fourteenth. Valentine's Day. Luckily for Angel and Amity, Valentine's Day just happened to be on a Friday. Unfortunately, they still had to go through a whole day's worth of school. Angel was currently sitting in her first period with Ciro.

"Are you almost done with your painting?" Angel asked him.

"Almost. I just have to finish a few of the pears." Angel nodded and returned to her own painting. It was a park. Ciro glanced over at it.

"Is that some place special?" He asked.

"I guess you could say that." Angel replied.

"What do you mean?"

"Whenever my family went to the beach, there was always this park nearby. I always wanted to go there, but there was never anyone there. The last time we went, I snuck into the park. It was really quiet. All you could hear were the waves lapping onto the beach. It was really calming. I want to take my children there one day." Angel smiled.

"Well," He looked at her stomach. "Maybe you will." The class passed by relatively fast and as usual, Ciro and angel helped clean up. There was a knock on the door.

"Chaim!" Angel ran to him and threw her arms around his neck. "Where's my present?" She smiled. He huffed.

"Is that all I'm good for? Presents?"

"You're a good kisser too." Angel joked.

"Really?" He grinned and leaned down.

"Ahem." Angel and Chaim looked over at Ciro. "Shouldn't we finish this mess first?" Ciro asked. Angel smiled and walked over to him.

"Do you not feel loved, Ciro?" Angel asked.

"Trust me, I get plenty of lovin'." Ciro grinned perversely.

"Ciro!" Angel hit him on his arm. "I don't want to hear about your sex life with Luna!"

"Someone say my name?" Luna poked her head through the door.

"Out! You can't come in here until lunch!" Ciro pushed her out the door. Chaim and Angel finished the cleaning and then went to their classes.

"Bye, babe." Chaim said and hugged her.

"Bye." Angel gave him a peck on the cheek and walked in to her second period. Luna was already sitting in her seat.

"Angel! What did Ciro get for me for Valentine's Day!?" Luna whined. Angel shrugged her shoulders.

"You're lying! Everyone knows when you lie! What'd he get me?"

"I'm sworn to secrecy." Angel said. Luna sat in her seat and pouted. Angel couldn't believe that she'd already been at her new school for a month. So much had happened. Amity's mom knew about Angel's pregnancy, and had taken her to the doctor for a check-up. Everything was fine with the baby. Chaim and Angel had already started picking out names for it, but they couldn't find one the agreed on.

Angel's thoughts were interrupted when the intercom came on.

"Will Angel Parks and Amity Peterson please report to the front office. Angel Parks and Amity Peterson." Angel got up and headed to the office. She saw Amity sitting on a bench.

"What's this about?" Angel asked.

"The detectives are here. I think they just wanted to check up on us." She said. Sure enough, detective Jamison, and detective Joyner appeared before them.

"Angel, Amity. I have good news and bad news. The good new is that we finished cleaning your house and the autopsies were finished. Your father was stabbed from behind. We believe that the attacker snuck up behind him and stabbed him and knocked him unconscious. There he died from blood loss. Your sister was in her bed, so we think she was sleeping when she was killed. Your grandmother was on oxygen, correct?" Angel nodded. "Her oxygen mask was pulled off while she was asleep." And your mother, she was shot. Apparently she saw them and tried to hide and call the police, but they found her before she succeeded. The bad news is that the attacker is still at large and we don't have any real leads as of yet." Angel had her head in her hands.

"I do." She stated.

"Excuse me?" Detective Joyner asked.

"I know who did it." The detectives stood in shock.


"He raped me. And I'm pregnant with his child." She started crying.

"We won't push you today, Angel. But we would like you to talk to us soon." Detective Joyner said. The detectives left and Amity walked Angel back to her class. Fortunately, class was almost over and lunch was next. Luna walked her to the lunch table, where Angel proceeded to spill her guts to Chaim. Chaim held and comforted the best he could.

Lunch, and the rest of the school day passed by pretty fast. Luna loved her painting, Lunar and Lynx were still being as physical as usual, and Chaim still wouldn't give Angel her present.

When Angel and Amity got home, they immediately started setting up for their party. It took a while, but their hard work paid off. They got ready, Amity wearing red, and Angel wearing pink. The first guests started arriving and before they knew it the house was full. Chaim held on to Angel the entire time.

"Angel, do you want a drink?" She nodded and he left her for a moment to go find the punch bowl. Unfortunately, Matt took the opportunity to swoop in.

"Hello, Angel." Chills went down her spine.

"Matt…what an unpleasant surprise." She said in a monotone voice.

"Come on, Angel. I'm really sorry."

"I don't want to hear it Matt."

"Angel, you're the only one for me."

"Ten what about the girl you arrived with?"

"Who? Bethany?"

"I suppose that's her name. I mean, you were only all over her five minutes ago."

"I still love you, Angel. I was stupid to give you up. I shouldn't have believed him." He told her.

"What about Bethany?" angel asked icily.

"What about Bethany? She's just some desperate bitch. She was just so pitiful…I didn't want to hurt her feelings. Dump that loser you're with and get back with me. He doesn't deserve you."

"And you think you do?"

"Angel, we were so good together."

"Until I supposedly cheated on you, which, I did not. You are such a jackass." Angel stood up to look him in the eyes.

"I'm trying to be nice and you're just being a bitch about it."

"It's kind of hard to be nice when you accused me of something you had no proof of, and then call me a bitch." Chaim was back by now.

"Hey dude, lay off my girl." Chaim wrapped an arm around Angel.

"How about you bug off bitch?" Matt was getting mad now.

"Not when it's concerning, Angel." Chaim said seriously. Matt swung at him and knocked Chaim in the mouth.

"Chaim!" Angel screamed. "Matt, you asshole!"

"That's the last time you call me and asshole, you bitch!" He swung and punched Angel in the stomach. Angel doubled over.

"M-m-my…" Angel kneeled on the floor clutching her stomach.

"Angel! Are you okay? What about your stomach?"

"M-my…my b-…my baby…" Angel stammered.

"What was that? Did you say your baby? Angel1 you're fucking pregnant! What the fuck! You've only been my ex for a month and you're already pregnant with this ass wipe's baby! My god you're a slut!" Angel didn't hear the insults, but Amity did.

"You fucking ass! You just fuckin' punched a pregnant woman! What the hell is wrong with you! You fucking shit-face!" She screamed at him.

"It's her fault she's fucking pregnant!"

"No the hell it's not! She was fucking raped!" For a moment Matt looked shocked. But it was soon followed by him storming off.

"Hold on, babe, I'm calling an ambulance."

"My baby, my baby…"

I know, shitty ending. Sorry for the continued use of the "F" word. What can I say? When my characters are ticked, they tend to use not-so-nice language. Anyway, I want to apologize for not updating in…over a year. I've been writing too much in the character's POV. I kept drifting in and out of Angel's POV. Then I had to go back and edit it. I've also updated my story "Triplets" which…I haven't touched in…well, put it this way, it was a lot longer than this wait. And again I'm sorry! Anyway, here's the preview:

"WHAT!" Ichigan screamed. "What do you mean she's pregnant!" He continued to scream into the phone.

"Get rid of it! I don't need that baby. It'd just get in the way." He slammed the phone down.

"Another whore of yours?" the boy said.

"You know, you might come in use after all." Ichigan mused as he looked at the teen.

"And what is it that you want me to do?"

"There's a girl named Angel Parks. I need you to go kill her baby. And just the baby."

"That shouldn't be hard. When's the baby alone?"

"She's still pregnant."

"Oh…well that might be a bit of a problem them." The boy said. "I'll take care of it, you bastard." He said.

"You're lucky I let you get away with that." The boy said nothing else, and walked out of the office.
