How had this happened? Seriously, how in the world did all of this happen? Did someone up there hate her? Did they want to see her lose her freaking mind? Because she was getting pretty damn close. Had she done something wrong? Well… obviously she had, but was it really that bad that her entire life had to fall apart because of it? Maybe it was. She had conceived a child out of wedlock… out of any sort of relationship at all. Maybe the circumstances would have been different if she had been dating the guy that knocked her up, but they weren’t even on speaking terms at school. Hell, they weren’t even friends. She had fallen victim to Jasper Moretti and his charms. She had sworn that she wouldn’t, but she had.
Now here she was, pregnant and without a place to live. She and her mother had gotten in to an enormous fight and the woman who was supposed to be there for her through thick and thin kicked her out on her pregnant ass. What the hell was she supposed to do? Her friends were trying to support her, even though she wouldn’t tell them who the father was. She had promised Jasper that she wouldn’t tell anyone… and that included her best friends, at least in her mind that’s what it meant. So, last night when her and her mother got in to their huge argument, she had called Travis and he came and picked her up so that she could stay with him and he tried to tell her that it would all blow over. And it wasn’t but an hour ago that he brought her back home and her mom was packing her stuff up in boxes, telling her that she needed to find someplace else to live for now.
It hurt. It hurt like bloody hell and Travis told her that she could stay with him for as long as she needed. That was the plan, what Charlie had decided would e best for her until she could save up enough money for her own place. She had been picking up extra shifts at the restaurant in order to save money for the baby. She didn’t want to have to rely on Jasper solely. She appreciated that he wanted to help, but she wanted to know that she could do it on her own. Her own father had left her family, so who’s to say that Jasper wouldn’t live her and the baby whenever he felt like it. He wasn’t attached to them in anyway, other than being the father – but to guys these days that didn’t mean anything.
So, here she was standing outside of his house ready to tell him what was going on. She felt that since he was making an effort to try and better himself in a way, that she owed this to him. She had to tell him that she wouldn’t be living at home and that she would be staying with Travis and eventually she would have her own place… eventually. Clearing her throat, she lifted her hand to the door and knocked, stepping back slightly to wait for Jasper to answer the door. Glancing down at her stomach, she smoothed a hand over the small little pooch that was forming. Luckily, she had been wearing empire waist dresses and baby doll top’s that flowed loosely over her stomach, so no one had suspected anything… at least not yet.
