CHAPTER SEVEN

"M-mom?" Even after standing there for a good five minutes and gathering my thoughts, my words got all caught up in my throat,"Y-your stomach.. it's.."

"Yes, I know." She grinned, pulling me into a hug. I couldn't even pull myself together enough to hug her back.

"But how?"

"Well, I was feeling a bit sickly about six months ago. So sick I had to go to the hospital." She rubbed her stomach,"I found out that I had no disease or anything, and that actually I was pregnant."

My head whipped around to Bridge."Why didnt you try calling me or anything?"

"I didn't want to mess up your whole college thing. I thought I could handle it." I ran my hands through my hair, trying to decide whether to be frustrated or elated.

"Is it going to be a boy or a girl?" I asked, rubbing her tummy lightly.

"We dont know yet. Besides, I want to be surprised. Though, I tell you, I was scared out of my mind when none of my clothes fit right anymore." She laughed. I had no words for her.

"I uh.. I dont know what to say. I just-"

"You dont have to say anything sweetheart." She smiled, cupping my cheeks,"Im just glad to see my eldest baby again. How's college?"

"About that." I chuckled nervously,"I had to drop out." I expected her to slap the shit out of my. My mother never took my grades lightly. Instead, she studied me with the earest eyes, waiting for me to explain,"I had a roomate who actually turned out to be the brother of a girl that hated me in Highschool. You know Bella right? Her. Yeah, a demon possessed her and we ended up fighting for our lives in a burning building. I healed just fine but Gar is still in the hospital and-" I gazed at her, and her lip had twisted into a frown, her eyes squinted,"What? You dont believe me?"

She sat back, sighing,"(Y/n), you have to stop with these fantasies and made up stories. What's the real reason you dropped out?" I stared at her dumbfounded.

"You don't believe me?" I questioned meekly. She tilted her head to the side, biting on her lip. Bridge stood behind me staring at the carpet.

"It's not that. I just.. um.."

"What? You just what?"

"I thought you came to see me because.. you found out I was back with your father." She could have just picked up a brick and smashed it against my skull. There was no way in hell I was going through what I went through years ago again. Swallowing a large lump in my throat, I furrowed my eyebrows at her.

"What?" She looked at me with the saddest of eyes. That guilt-trip looked that only worked when Bridge would ask for something as a toddler,"You're kidding me."

"No, she's not kidding. He's moving back in by next week." Bridge cut in, setting a hand on my shoulder. I snatched away and stood up.

"No." I murmured,"No, mommy no, you cant.. you can't get back with him!"

"And why not?" She stood up, immediately at least a few inches taller than me.

"Because! Do you not realise what he did to us before Bridge was born? What he did to me?" I stammer, pointing to Bridge. Bridge shrank back against the couch, shoulders hunched and curious eyes fixed on me.

"Everyone deserves a second chance, (Y/n)." She sighed, smiling softly. She rested a hand on my cheek just as a tear slipped from my eye, followed by a trillion more. She didnt seem to care that I had just broke out into a snotty, sobbing mess. She kept smiling.

"Don't do this." I whispered,"Do I have to remind you of everythin he did to me? To you? Do I have to?"

"No. God, (Y/n), I want to be happy too." She threw her hands up, turning her back to me.

"Is that why you're pregnant? Because another child is going to make you happy?" I spat, backing up. She turned around.

"You close your mouth this instant. I don't want to speak about this anymore." She ordered.

"You close your legs!" I screamed. A heavy silence hung between us, and my mouth clamped shut. Oh shit. She advanced towards me, and I backed up, stumbling towards the door.

"(Y/n)! Get back here!" She hollered. I was already out the door, fumbling to the car. I fell in and nodded for her to turn the car on. Without a word, she started the engine and she sped down the street. I wiped the tears still rolling down my cheeks and breathed as quietly as I could. Hyperventilating was not helping.
