Shane

What the hell am I going to do? Hannah is pregnant with my child. Holy shit. I can't think straight and why the hell did she tell me at my sister's wedding? That's her plan? Tell in a public place so I can't freak out, well too late for that. I'm freaking out. Honsetly I have no clue what I'm going to do. Who am I going to tell? Where am I going to live? What about Claire. How could I be this stupid to let this happen to me again? Really? I have really shitty luck. Okay, I need to calm down, thinking this fast is making my heart rate go up.

I walked out of the ball room and sat back in the same place I was before. I just wanted to sit here and think about how I just screwed my life up, right as soon as I started getting in back in order. I hear the door open but I don't look up. I have a throbbing head ache and I don't want to see anyone right now.

"There you are, I've been looking all over for you." Hannah's sweet voice fills the emptyness of the hall way.

"Hey, yeah I've just been... around, I guess." Great, now I'm rambling.

Hannah sits down next to me and puts her hand on my thigh.

"Hannah, I'm not going to let you do this alone and i hope you know that. I love you and our baby no matter what, and I always will. Don't shut me out of it's life forever. I won't be able to live with myself knowing I have a child out in the world that I don't know." 

"Shane I would never do that to you. I promise, we'll figure this out as it prolongs. I promise okay?" She gives me a weak smile and I put my arm around her and pull her close so I can give her a kiss on her forehead. Why can't my life just be simple?

*************

I wake up in my bed at the sounds of birds chirping. This was probably the first time since I was a senior in highschool that this has happened. I sit up in my bed and look at the half empty boxes around me. I'm pretty much done with unpacking except my room. I hate packing.

The only thing I can think about is the fact that Hannah is having one of my babies. How can I be a father again? Having two kids at the age of twenty-one? My life is about to get really complex.

I get out of bed and shower, shave, and get dressed so I can get on with my day. I go into Claire's new room and see that she isn't there. Before I start to panic I walk down the hallway and into my brothers room and see him and Claire completely asleep in his bed. It's cute enough for me to take a picture and then I throw a pillow at Cole.

"What." He mumbles and pulls the covers over his head.

"Why is she in here?" I smile and sit in a chair that's stray in his room.

He sits up and glares at me, "You didn't hear her and I was tired so I put her in my bed and she fell asleep." Claire starts to lift her head and her little eyelids flutter open.

"Daddy! Hi daddy! I-I-I Slepted in Uncle's room!" She tells me excitedly and she runs onto my lap. I give her a kiss on the forehead and she runs out of Cole's room.

"I need to tell you something." I start off. I put my hand on the back of my head and scratch my head.

"Dude it's like six in the morning, can this not wait? I don't have to get ready for school for another half hour." Cole retorts.

"I got Hannah pregnant." I mumble so he can barley hear me. I feel my face getting hot and I look over at Cole.

"I'm sorry, what?" He stands up and paces in his room while in his underwear.

"Lets talk later; I've got to take Claire to day care."

"No way! You woke me up to tell me something and you don't even do it? Spit it out!" Cole stands up and closes the door and stands in the way.
