~Jack's P.O.V.~

I walk into the dojo and see all the guys sitting there upset.

"No luck?" I ask.

"None. Sorry, bro." Jerry answers.

"I just don't get why she would leave." I say as I sit down.

"Neither do we. It's not like we did anything to make her go away." Milton says.

"Yeah. We didn't do anything." Rudy agrees. I'm about to say maybe she went to visit family but then I remember what happened.

Kim walks into the dojo office and shuts the door. Jack looks up and sees her looking at him nervously.

"Hey, Kim. What's wrong?" he asks.

"I have to tell you something." she answers.

"What?"

"I-I'm pregnant." she tells him.

"You're what?!" Jack yells. "This better be some sick joke because you can't be pregnant."

"It's not a joke, Jack." Kim says quietly.

"Well then what do you want me to do about it?! I can't do anything. I can't deal with kids or a pregnant girlfriend!" Jack yells at her.

"But--"

"Just leave! And don't bother coming back!" Jack tells her. Kim turns around and runs out of the dojo. She runs home, packs her stuff, then drives to the airport.

"I'd like a one way ticket to Chicago, please." she tells the lady at the airport. She hands her some money and the lady gives her the ticket.

"And ma'am, running will only make this worse. He may be mad now, but if you stay and give it some time, he'll warm up to the idea of having kids." the lady smiles.

"H-How did you know?" Kim asks.

"So many young women these days come by and get plane tickets to escape. They don't want to tell their boyfriends they're pregnant so they run." the lady explains.

"I'll keep that in mind." Kim says before loading her plane.

"I made her leave." I whisper to myself.

"No you didn't, man." Jerry says.

"Yes, I did. You don't understand!" I tell him. "I got mad at her and told her to leave and not bother coming back."

"Wow. Smooth move, bro." Rudy replies.

"Rudy!" Milton says.

"I just never thought she'd really leave." I explain before getting up and leaving.
