Silence.The entire room was filled with nothing but dead silence and he looked like he was frozen.Was is it a good reaction or a bad reaction?"Xavier?" I called out, trying to bring him out of his trance."Are you sure?" he asked in almost a whisper and I nodded with a small smile. Tears started to flow down his cheeks and he just hugged me tightly. I could feel so much love in that single hug which made me cry along with him. There is a saying that 'Actions speak louder than words' and it was absolutely true."I love you so much, sweetheart. You--I can't believe it. Fuck, I'm so glad that we are having another chance at it," he stammered and I could sense nothing but pure happiness in his voice."I know. It's going to be fine this time," I cooed, rubbing his back which only made him hug me tighter."Heck, I wouldn't mind dying this second because I'm so damn hap
A year later,“Okay, so what’s so special about this dinner?” I asked for the millionth time as I curled my hair in front of the mirror while he was fixing his tie“Wha-- Who said it was special?” his eyes went wide and I pursued my lips into a thin line.“You are wearing a suit and look at me, I look like I’m going to a freaking prom.” I gestured towards my satin red dress that reached till my knees and he gave me a throaty laugh, snaking his arms around my waist while I continued to work on my hair.“I wish I was your prom date. I would have let you take my ‘oh so precious virginity’,” he replied, making me laugh out loud.“You lost your virginity at prom?”“Not important, Thompson. So now to answer your question, my mom wanted to invite us to a fancy dinner. That is all.” He shrugged but I felt like there was something more to it.“Alright,” I sighed, feeling tir
"Why didn't you call me?" Nate yelled and stood up from his chair with such force, enough to draw attention in that small coffee shop. I called him earlier today to catch up with him as it has been a long time."Shhh! Shut up and sit down," I hissed. I just told him about the whole baby thing and that's the reason for his behavior. He looked so damn angry."I know you guys are in a good place now but none of this would have happened if he hadn't stormed out that day, Becca," he muttered in annoyance and I rolled my eyes."Not this again, Nate. We both went through hell because of this but I'm not going to blame him or you or anyone. It just happened and it's over so just leave it," I mumbled silently, not meeting his gaze and neither of us spoke for a while."I'm so sorry, Becs." He whispered in a soft voice and looked at me with so much concern. I gave him a small smile and tucked my hair behind my ears. The coffee
"Are you still going to give me the silent treatment?" My mom asked while I was packing the remaining of my stuff. I've been ignoring her for the past week and she knew she messed up big time. I wasn't ready to talk to her just yet."Come on, Becca. I'm leaving today and I really don't want things to be weird between us. Maybe we could sit down and talk like adults," she spoke again and I closed my eyes, taking a deep breath."What do you want me to say? That I forgive you for hiding something so huge from me?" I yelled, taking her by surprise."I was just trying to protect you, baby. I can't see you in pain and I knew how much you would have been hurt," she tried to explain and I interrupted her."Well, anybody would have been in pain if they lose their baby. It's not something unusual, mom. I don't care if it hurts me. Yes, shit happened and it's okay...I just want you to be honest with me. I mean, I can handle it
"Are you going to talk to your mom about this?" he asked whilst pulling me closer towards him. We were curled up on his bed and I wanted nothing but to remain like that forever.This was so much better than going back home and dealing with my mom. I needed peace and quiet right now."I don't know. I'm so mad at her, Xavier. I mean, why would she keep something like this from me?""Maybe to protect you," he murmured against my neck and I turned around to face him."This protective nature of hers is getting out of hand. I mean, I can deal with pain and loss. She is hurting me more by hiding stuff from me," I whined and he just nodded in understanding. I ran my eyes all over his beautiful face and let out a huge sigh."Have I told you how much I love you?" I whispered as I looked into his eyes deeply."Yeah and I love you more than that," he kissed my nose and I smiled, closing my eyes
"What are you talking about?" I let out a nervous chuckle. It can't be true. I would have known if I was pregnant. We used protection and I was on the pill. Nothing made any sense."It's true, Rebecca." He whispered with a pained look on his face and I swallowed hard, "When I picked up that call, the doctor started to speak thinking I was your mother. He said something like if she wanted to know whose baby you were carrying, she needed to bring in a blood sample or a cheek swab to do the paternity test,"Whose baby?Fuck!Holy fucking shit!I felt my head spinning with all the news that was thrown at my face. My mom knew about this all along and kept it from me. I was fucking pregnant and I lost my baby. The huge question was, whose baby was I carrying? Xavier and I were together for only a month before the accident.Was it Nate's?A tear escaped from my eyes and I
I couldn't understand what just happened and stood there like an idiot, trying to process everything. There was a call on my mom's phone but he left saying he had to pick up Hannah. It made no fucking sense.Did he just lie to my face?I picked up my mom's phone from the table and checked the call logs. There was a call from an unknown number. I tried to call that number again but it went straight to voicemail.Fucking great!I went back to my room, feeling super confused and mad. Why did he leave me just like that? I mean, a few minutes back, we were kissing and now he was just gone. I wasn't even sure if he was mad at me when he stormed out of the door. I picked up my phone and typed a text.'Is everything alright? Are you mad at me?'No reply.I laid back on my bed, waiting for his response all night but he didn't text or call back.Ugh! And they
One and a half months later,"Ugh, I'm so bored." I groaned in frustration and looked up at the clock. It was 5 pm and Xavier should be here any minute now.I kept flipping through the channels, feeling bored out of my mind. This has been the same routine for the past one and a half months. I wake up, eat, watch shitty shows, or read some books and stay in bed all day. I missed my job. Xavier was the only thing that was making me feel sane and happy. He used to come and visit me every evening with Hannah and that was the best part of my day. My mom was trying so hard to take care of me and work at the same time. I know it was exhausting for her but she never gave up."Hey, I'm just heading out." My mom called out from the living room, breaking my chain of thoughts."Where?" I shouted back, in confusion. I mean, where could she possibly go. She was new to town and she doesn't know anybody.
Xavier's POV:I kept pacing outside the hallway, waiting for her mom. I wanted to convince her to let Rebecca stay here with me. In fact, I was planning on asking Rebecca to move in with so that I can talk care of her better but I didn't want her to feel pressured or anything.Baby steps!"I thought you would be inside with her," I heard her mom's voice behind me and turned around to find her, narrowing her eyes at me."Well, I was hoping to talk to you, Mrs.Thompson." I took a deep breath and felt my palms go sweaty.Shit! Why was I so nervous?"Talk about what?" she asked, folding her arms in front of her and I was feeling intimidated already."I want Rebecca to stay here because I'm fully capable of taking care of her, Mrs. Thompson." I stated confidently and waited for her response."I can see how well you take care of her," she replied sarcasti
