The Secret Life of That Teenage Girl (part 1)
By Dhvani, age 14, Oman
"It's over. I am ending this relationship right now!" he said with an angry face. I just stared at him blankly, not thinking for a second. And it struck me!
"What? Oh, is it my fault that I am like this right now? Or is it because you were the one who wanted to have sex? Unsafe sex!" I yelled back at him.
"Oh, shut up and go away! It's over, and trust me, I promise you that we will never be back together! EVER AGAIN!" He walked off on me.
Yes, I was ... I was pregnant! I'm only 14! How could I ever even think of having sex?
At dinner I was silent, said completely nothing. My sister Lynn kept on kicking my leg to continue eating. No one knew about my pregnancy, only Jake and I.
I, Linn Grace Bolton, was about to have a baby in 8 months whose father was my ex-boyfriend, Jake Rennfrostt.
(6 Months Ago)
"Linn, I'm really sorry," said Jake. "I thought we should stay out of each other's way for a while! But I didn't know that it would hurt this much!"
"Jake! I know you need your space, but just 'cause you're a whole grade older than me, that doesn't mean you need to, like, study all the time! I know you have to study! But you're only in year 10!" I said back at him.
"I'm really sorry! I didn't know! I love you more than anything in this world, and that includes my dog Martin," he said smiling. "Please, just this once! We've been going out for two years. Please?"
"No. You needed your space, now you got it!"
"Yes, I NEEDED it! But not anymore. I'll do anything! I swear, anything."
"Fine, you'll do something? Anything, right!? In front of the whole school, during break, you have to apologize!"
"Anything! I'll do it! At break, today!" He smiled back and I walked off to homeroom.
During break, in front of the whole school, even though Mr. Salt the school principal was there, he did it. He apologized! I smiled and accepted. We cuddled on to each other and made out. Sure, we did get in trouble. Mr. Salt told us that what we did during break was inappropriate and we were given detention for two days after school.
As the week went by, we got closer again and started to spend a lot of time together. Five months passed and we didn't notice; time just flew by. We were in love, and that was the only thing that mattered to either of us.
We spent the day with each other, like it was our last day to live. "Linn, it's going to be three years in a week," Jake said. "November 10th!"
"Yeah, three years? Is it really three years?" I asked.
"Oh, I can't wait! I've a got a surprise for you!" he said, jumping up.
"Wait, what? Surprise? Oh, tell me!" I screamed excitedly.
"What is the point of the surprise then, eh?" he laughed.
(One Week Later)
His hands were on my eyes, closing them so I wouldn't take a peek at what his surprise was. I had no idea where he was taking me. After a couple of minutes, he finally uncovered my eyes, and there we were in the living room. It was dimly lit with a table right there in the middle, with heaps of food on it.
Was there no one there? No, of course not. His parents were out of town that weekend, and his brother Ron was at his friend's. We had the whole house to ourselves. Yes, our parents trusted us; it was our third year together. They trusted us enough to know that we weren't going to do anything wrong or bad.
We had our dinner, danced, and then decided to watch a movie in his room. Under the same blanket, we laid down there watching the movie. Neither of us thought that it was scary or anything. We got bored and started to stare at each other. He pulled me closer to him, and we kissed and kissed. The next thing I remember, I woke up with my head on his chest, his hands around me and mine around him. I sat up straight and realized that I didn't have any clothes on!
No, No, No, No. This is not happening! I thought to myself. I yelled out loud, really loud. Jake woke up, sitting up straight.
"What's wrong?" he said, rubbing his eyes.
I looked back at him. He looked down. "Oh-oh!" he said.
