"I'm so glad it isn't showing... yet." I said breathing in trying to see how my stomach looked side ways on the mirror.

"Yep!" Laura replied lazily laying back on my bed, typing something on her phone. My experience from being a nurse had taught me that every woman is different. If you're a first-time mother, you could begin developing a baby bump any time between twelve and sixteen weeks. But if this isn't your first baby, you may start showing sooner because the muscles in your uterus (womb) and belly may already have been stretched from your last pregnancy.

"Besides, I like Leona in dresses and after ten weeks is it?" She asked a little unsure.

"Twelve weeks but it depends-"

"Yes, twelve weeks, after twelve weeks you will be showing and by then you ought to have told Dr. Winters. I low key think he already knows.." Laura gave me a knowing look.

"You're not helping.." I huffed pulling my dress down.

"I mean, did you see yourself sniffing around the kitchen like a mad women."

"I wasn't sniffing.." I replied with a scowl on my face.

"You were sniffing like a dog and the next thing you said was it smells like pumpkin and you wanted pumpkin." Laura said making me feel utterly embarrassed.

"Uh.. I said butternut." I told her in a low voice.

"You know what pumpkin, butternut, whatever.." She peeved, I was start to think.. I'm annoying.

"Where are you going with Luka anyways?"

"He said he wanted to go to the beach and see the sunset or something.." I shrugged.

"Are you going on a date with your brother in-law." She asked a curious smirk on her lips.

"Lauraaaa...!!" I called exaggeratively. "He is a married man and he has a daughter. Fabiola, she is absolutely beautiful.. they really have great genes. I hope my baby turns out-"

"Off topic.." Laura said in an obvious tone.

"... sorry."

"Fine, I get it. He is a married man but why the beach of all places.." she shrugged.

"I get a feeling that he probably wants us to talk, without distractions and convince me to tell Eric or something like that."

"...tell Eric, do you want to tell him?"

"It will change everything." I sighed. "You know those books where the guy suddenly wants you because you're pregnant. I can't hold the burden of knowing he would rather be somewhere else but he is forced to stay here... with me... and play family." I looked at my best friend who had a small pout on her lips. "That's not Eric! Him being a father that's just not him and I highly doubt he would be accepting of this. He will just shout at me and say I wanted it and this was my plan all along or even make a sarcastic comment about it. He just has these stupid comments.. that I love; sometimes."

"You love him." Laura said as a matter of fact.

"..."

"I thought I loved Robbie not so long ago. It's nothing, I always go for the wrong guys and funny enough, I always think it's love." I smiled but then a frown immediately graced my lips. I shook off those depressing thoughts and looked back on the mirror. I wasn't showing but my breast had definitely pumped up in size. I couldn't wear this dress like this, I needed a cardigan. Eric would certainly make fun of my dressing. It's much worse now that my jeans don't button up and I have to wear dresses because I'm constantly going to the toilet and it makes things a lot easier.

"He said something the other day, it just caught me off guard." Laura said softly making me look in her direction.

"W-what did he say?" The words fell out of my lips faster than I thought they would.

"Uh you know what, he is just an ass. He probably didn't mean it." She paused. "I don't want to hurt you or get your hopes up."

I heaved a heavy sigh.

"It's something bad right? Well it's okay, I don't want to hear it. I know how negative Eric can be."

"Yeah.."

".." Silence enveloped the room. She went back to texting on her phone. I tied my hair up. Eric would have disturbed me by now saying he loved when it was down. It didn't matter what he loved, anymore. Nothing matter anymore. Not anything he said whether he meant it or not or whether he just had to say them so he could soften me up and get me to sleep with him. It's very weird how he never mentioned his girlfriend, the first time we were intimate. He meant to conceal it for as long as he could.. presumably continue getting laid off me.

My ch

o.."

My lips were quivering from crying. It felt like it was just the two of us although we were starting to get an audience from afar.

"I have to do this for us, I want a genuine life with you. It's not going to be easy but with you by my side, I feel I can get past anything."

"But you don't have to leave-"

"No, Leona as much as I would love to be here with you. Watching your father walk you down the aisle handing me your hand in marriage." Eric smiled just as he smiled a tear went down his cheek. "Moving in together, having our first child, raising our child... I find joy in thinking about doing this with you and sharing a life with you. It gives me strength to be strong for us."

I felt emotional because I already was carrying our first child. I admired that he wanted to do this for not only him but me.

"Do you promise to wait for me?" He questioned, I didn't hesitate.

"Yes, yes I will wait for you." I smiled. He put the beautiful ring on my finger and it fit perfectly.

"I love it." I exclaimed, standing onto his feet he pulled me into his arms. A genuine laughter growled from his lungs. It was music to my ear.

"And I love you." He said, that's when I realized I had not said it back.

"I love you Eric, I love you, I always have." I whispered back. He gave me the smile that I adored. Showing off his pearly whites.

I felt an ache and a need to tell him tell him about the being that was growing inside of me.

What we had created.

"Eric.." I pulled back from him. He looked at me expectedly..

"What's wrong?" He asked clearly concerned.

"I'm pregnant." I said it quickly, it was now or never right? His eyes bulged out. He ought to speak but no words came out fear surged within me. This was it. He didn't want it. He was speaking for the future not now... this scared me and I'm the one carrying the child, it must have been worse for him.

"I know, it's fine don't say it. You don't want the child that's fine.." I removed the ring intending to give it back to him but he shook his head.

"Leona, I'm happy." He ran his hand through curly locks. "For so many reasons I'm happy. Meeting you happened for a reason, this happened for a reason and I'm only afraid that this may make me not want to leave when it's time." He said wiping my tears away. He laid a soft kiss on my forehead before asking.

"How far long are we?"

At that moment, I knew what happiness felt like. He put aside the fact that I had lied and focused on the bigger picture. He put aside the fact that I didn't have any intention to tell him and made it known that he understood and we were in this together. I didn't know where this would lead to but I felt stronger with his promise and him knowing. I didn't think much into it. I didn't want to think about him leaving but I knew he had to do this for the three of us. I wished that he didn't have to go but everything has a price.
