Ava and Tucker were sitting on his front porch
swing. She had run to his house as soon as she saw the positive lines.
“Are you sure?” He asked her not wanting to believe it.
“I guess. The test had two lines. That is positive,” she answered
not looking at him.
Tucker pulled her into his arms and began
to rub her hair as her head lay on his chest. He could feel her tears soaking
into his shirt.
“What are we going to do?” Ava cried.
“Abortion Ava. You have to have an abortion. There’s no other choice.”
“What do you mean? Of coarse there are other options,” Ava said pulling herself away from him.
“What do you want me to do? Marry you? You know I love you Ava but we cannot have a baby.”
“We don’t have to get married
Tucker. I know we are both too young for that right now but that doesn’t
mean we can’t still be good parents or even give the baby up for adoption.”
“What about my scholarship? Do you think they are going to give it to me with a wife and baby?”
“Tucker I told you I don’t want
to marry you right now. But we don’t have to kill our baby!”
“Right now? Yeah you say that but what the hell do you think your Daddy is going be yelling? And I don’t even want to think about what Cam would say.”
“Tucker don’t you care at all
about the baby?” Ava asked her tears falling freely.
“Goddamn it Ava,” he yelled while
standing up and pacing the porch. “I told you to get on the pill Ava. I fucking told you!”
“Stop yelling at me Tucker. I told you I couldn’t ask Dr. Wheeler about being on the pill.
He is like best friends with my Daddy he would have told him. What did
you want me to do? I told you to use a condom but no ‘It doesn’t
feel the same. I want to feel you baby’.
This is just as much your fault as it is mine. So don’t you dare
stand there and act like it’s not.”
“Are you going to have the abortion?”
“I don’t know Tucker,” Ava
said with tears rolling down her cheeks.
“Well until you do know don’t
talk to me, don’t come around me, don’t even look at me,” he said softly then walked into his house leaving
Ava sobbing on his porch swing.
“I went home that night and decided
‘fuck him. He’s not worth my tears.’ That was the last time I cried over him. I haven’t heard
anything from him since,” Ava said finishing her story.
“This should be our slogan but what
an ass! Okay Ava I think you were right.
I really did not need to hear that right now.”
“El I’m sorry I told you. But hey your dad didn’t act like mine did so maybe your guy won’t either.”
“I hope you’re right. What about your brother ,does he know about Seth?” Ellie
I didn’t tell him. Daddy didn’t want anyone to know that didn’t
already. I told him Tucker didn’t know so it wouldn’t be weird if
he came over to see Cam. And I really didn’t
want it to be bad between Cam and Tucker. They
were friends before me and I didn’t want that to change. They are at college
together so I wanted him to be happy and have fun.”
are they going to school?”
Tucker got his precious scholarship and is a quarterback for them. Cam didn’t go there to play ball. He wants to be
a sports journalist so he can write about how fucking perfect Tucker is I guess.”
Seth began to cry. He had been asleep for most of the trip but now he was ready to eat.
The girls stopped just inside the Wasaga limits to fed him and eat.
“Well we’re almost there,”
Ava said to a visibly nervous Ellie.
“Yeah . You ready I want to get this
over with as soon as possible.”
“Surem “Ava said.
After Seth was strapped in the girls climbed
in the car and rode the last part of their trip in silence. Both of them were
lost in their own thoughts.
Note: Okay the next chapter will be the thoughts of Ava and Ellie on the way to Sean’s. It will be mature themed. Someone will be thinking about
sex! So don’t read if you’re not comfortable with it. I’ll update soon!
