"AAHHH!" I scream.
Why the fuck didn't anyone tell me this would be so painful? I grab onto one of the nurses. "Help me!"
She stammers, "Ma'am, as I've told you, there's nothing more I can do. You already took an epidural. If I give you any more medicine, your life will be at risk," she says matter of factly.

Fuck this country. Tears are streaming through my ears and the only support I have is from my assistant--and that's because I threatened his job. I have to give birth in this remote location so that no one knows I've gotten pregnant. Even though technically we've reformed, getting knocked up is not a good look for me as president--the first female president of the United States. No one will know about this--no one.

I respond curtly.She smiles and points to Jack's mom-to-be. "Thank you."We enter and she recognizes us immediately. As she's approaching us, Shawn pulls me aside, "I hope I'm not overwhelming you or anything," he says."Huh?""I mean, we've started this thing a little early. I hope it doesn't seem like I just want to serve myself with all of this. It's still a while before we planned to do this, but if we talk
July 2040~Next Week Friday~Kara's POV:Tonight is the night. We will finally go through with our plans, and I don't feel an ounce of guilt.Just because Shawn and I were the only ones to figure out how fucked up this all is, it doesn't mean it's any less fucked.We've been talking a lot this past week--going on little food dates, shopping, any situation where we could hang out together really. I would go grocery shopping with this guy if it meant we could walk around in each other's arms, occasionally staring into the other's eyes and thinking about how much we like each other. I'd seen the sides of him that he usually concealed, and I love being that special person that he could confide in at times.Maybe he was right... I am one of those people? I try not to get too mushy around him, but it's all still going on in my head.To my parents, he's my "friend." They don't know exactly what I do
