Leaning over behind a tree in absolute agony I puke everything that my stomach held. I can just think, ‘oh god,’ right before proceeding to vomit up more contents from my stomach. It’s not any broken down food at this point, it’s just disgusting bile. I gag, making a hell of a lot of noise. Thank god Sam and Jett had decided to venture into town to get some human supplies. Staying in wolf form for an extremely long time can have a damaging effect on the human form. The spine is damaged and organs feel pressured and thus sometimes give out. Therefore, that person dies a very quick death. Somehow I manage to stand up straight without the support of the tree. I let out a giggle.
Thank god I’m not pregnant or this running for my life business would be so much more awkward.
I stop giggling and place a hand on my stomach.
No. Impossible. It hasn’t been that long. I do some quick calculations in my head and gulp. What’s the date?
Just then I hear the crunching of footsteps and the scent of Jett in the air. His looming figure soon reaches me with a big grin. Well that is until he notices my expression. His face drops.
“Feli, what’s wrong?” he asks, touching my arm lightly as though he was afraid that I’d fall over.
“What’s the date?” I ask, shakily.
Jett bites his lip, thinking. “I think the sixteenth of June?”
I feel a wave of panic wash over me. We’ve been running for the last month and I’ve missed my period by two weeks. Oh god. I grip onto Jett’s arms for support so I wouldn’t fall.
“What’s wrong?” Jett sounds scared. I look up at him.
“I think I’m pregnant.”
He just blinks at me a few times, “what?”
I take a deep breath, “I need to get a pregnancy test. What way is the town?” I ask.
“Woe, wait now. Firstly, you’re not going on your own. And secondly, what?” hi voice goes up an octave at the end.
“Caleb and I...” I’m cut off by Jett’s waving hands in my face.
“Right, getcha, got it. I know reproduction. I do not need the mental images,” he shudders. I roll my eyes.
“Come on if you’re coming,” I say and with shaky legs, I begin to walk straight ahead.
“Um Feli?” Jett calls. I turn back to see him awkwardly standing there in some band t-shirt and shapeless black jeans, hopping from foot to foot. “Town’s that way.” He points to the left.
“I did not know that.”
He gives me a half grin and skips over to me, linking my arm with his and leading the way.
Twenty minutes later Jett is leading me into a small store. I awkwardly walk to the counter where an elderly looking woman stands. I can clearly see a pregnancy test behind her. I drum my fingers on the counter and look at her with a weak smile.
“Pregnancy test, please,” I hear my voice waver. She makes a clicky noise with her tongue but proceeds to get one for me. I hand her the money and begin to turn away, holding the box in a death grip.
“There’s a bathroom at the back of the store,” she calls after me. I give her a thumbs up and walk away, cheeks flaming and embarrassed. Jett walks down with me, towering over all the shelves and standing out like a pimple on porcelain skin with his striking features.
“I’ll wait outside...” he mumbles awkwardly as I step into the tiny bathroom. Taking a deep breath I do what needs to be done while taking that test. In lack of better words, I pissed on a stick and waited for the line to tell me what was the story.
I sit on the closed lid of the toilet seat, tapping my fingers against my chin as I look at the white stick.
“Did you piss on the stick yet?” Jett calls in.
“Yeah, I just need to – oh fuck.”
A faint blue line stares up at me.
“Felicity? What’s wrong?”
I immediately stand up and burst out of the room, “we can’t tell Sam.”
Jett’s eyes grow wide, “what? What do you mean?”
“Sam will get panicked and abandon everything about his father and us running for our lives for the safety for me and this baby.” So far there was no luck on Thom Klieg but apparently Sam’s mother met Riley in Maine so we’re trying to make our way back up there. I have lost track with what state we’re in.
