I looked back at him. He looked down. "Oh-owh!" Jake said.
"AAAHHHHHHHHHH! No, this is not true!" I jumped in place again.
I started to cry, my face in my hands. Jake put his hands on my shoulders and pulled me to him. He tried to calm me, but nothing worked. I stopped crying then, pulled out a shirt of his, put it on, and got out of the bed. I picked up all my clothes and walked to the bathroom.
That was it, I thought to myself, taking a shower. It's done, and now I will have to live with it.
I got out of the shower and entered the room. Jake, sitting on the bed, looked up, then ran towards me from across the room. He hugged me, hugged me really tight, saying, "I'm really, Linn! I'm really sorry!" I hugged him back and started to cry once again. During breakfast we just sat there, not eating anything on our plates.
He walked me home, and I hugged him goodbye. After lunch at home, I went off to my best friend Emily's and told her everything. As I spoke tears rolled down my eyes, and she cried too. We walked to a nearby supermarket and bought three pregnancy tests. We ran off to the McDonalds, two minutes away from the supermarket.
We went into the bathroom, and I sat there for 5 minutes. The results on the test, on all three of them, was positive. I fell on the toilet floor, crying to myself. As we got to Emily's we called Jake and asked him to come over.
I told him when he got there. And that was it, the end of him and me.
"It's over. I'm ending this relationship right now!" he said with an angry face. I stared at him blankly, not thinking for a second. And then 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.
I couldn't sleep that night, when mum came to the room and saw me crying. She sat next to me and said, "Hey, what's wrong?"
"Nothing, mum!" I said, covering my face in the pillow.
"Are you sure, honey?"
"NO! Nothing is right! Jake broke up with me! He is such a jerk!" I yelled.
"Hey, honey! I'm really sorry. I didn't know. Well, did you guys fight?"
"Yes! We had a massive fight and now it's over! He blamed it on me! For no reason! JUST LEAVE ME ALONE, PLEASE!" I yelled out really loudly.
"Love, how about you go to bed, and when you wake up tomorrow morning we talk about it, okay? And maybe I'll help you talk things through with Jake. Okay?" she said calmly, stroking my hair with her hands.
"Okay, mum, thank you! Goodnight, mum."
"Goodnight, honey." Walking out of the room she closed the door behind her.
I couldn't believe it - I was only 14! I am going to have a child of my own at the age of 15. That night I cried myself to sleep.
