21: Secret Revealed

I arrived with a funny feeling in the pit of my stomach. I didn’t want to confront him, he was the worst type of person to. He always had a way of making things get a tad violent, and I couldn’t have violence at this moment.
I took a shaky breath, and walked into the home.
“Evangeline!” I heard Laffy exclaim, running over to me. I raised my eyebrow at her relieved expression.
“Joker destroyed a lot when you left...” she said, frowning slightly. I groaned.
“JOKEY BABY, CAER IS HOME!” I shouted at the top of my lungs, it didn’t take too long for him to slide down the stairs railing and hug me tight once he got to the bottom. 
“I’m sorry.”
My jaw dropped, I lot every thought in my mind at once. I was in shock. Jack never apologized, no matter what happened.
I bit my lip, looking into his eyes.
Did I want to ruin this?
His eyes looked so sincere....We were actually truly getting close.
I hesitated.
He has to know...
“We need to talk.” I said bluntly, pursing my lips until they were a straight line across my face. My eyes probably looked a little weary, for he nodded with a blank expression and brought me to the bedroom. I sat down on the bed and looked up at him. The room was spinning, it was probably just my mind, nothing too big.
“Why did you run away?” he sighed. “Lemme guess. We’re over, right?” he crossed his arms, his eyes manically studying me.
I couldn’t help it. I started laughing, clutching onto my stomach.. I don’t know what made it so funny. It was probably the fact that I was insane.
“Baby cakes, no! Why would I ever do such a thing? I love y-“
“Then don’t fucking laugh at me like a little bitch.”
Great, another tantrum. I looked at him and sighed. “I’m sorry. Something is wrong with me right now, and-“
He looked pissed, I kept on a straight face even though on the inside I wanted to punch him in that stupid doo-doo his.
“We’re going to b e faced with a pretty difficult situation soon, honey. We can’t fight anymore, it’s going to be a very difficult path but I’m sure we can overcome it.” I was sincere, looking up at him with puppy dog eyes. Might as well say “woof” and he’d throw me a bone at this point, I was really trying hard at this point to make him soften up.
It worked, I could see it in his eyes, even though he didn’t want to admit it. He moved his weight from his left foot to his right, and sighed.
“What is this situation?”
I sighed., and played with my hair. There was no backing out now. “Well....You know how we usually have our fun when we’re done with work...” I was blushing now, remembering all the times we’d had sex in the last month.
He seemed to catch on, but not fully to put the pieces together.
“Of courseeeee.” he dragged the last word cooly, sucking the inside of his right cheek thoughtfully, then smirked. I blushed harder.
“Nope.” he said it so quickly once the “t” of “pregnant” left my mouth. I stopped talking and thinking, shocked. How did he not believe me?
“No, I really am, Jack...”
“Nope, nope nope nope, I made sure you wouldn’t, because I am extra careful.” he was pacing now, and from the look on his face, getting really frustrated.
I crossed my arms, glaring at the wall now. Glaring at his big fat stupid head would get me in trouble, anyways.
Poop head.
“I can name three times you didn’t use protection.” I stated.
“Alright, then name them, princess.”
“Three weeks ago, in the back of the van while the henchmen were in the warehouse. Two weeks ago, when we were in the room right after blowing up the old factory on the south side of town. And a week ago when we were alone in the livingroom.” I named them so nonchalantly without pausing to think, knowing this would make him remember a little harder and finally believe the truth.
His face fell for a moment, then sighed. 
“What do you think about this?” I asked, fearful. He looked at me pensively.
“I’ll get back to you later on that.” he headed for the door.
“Wait, Ja-“ he had already shut the door. I groaned.
That went well.
Great idea, Evangeline.
