Alexa's POV

The ride home was... tense, to say the least. Louis had held in his yelling at me until we were safely tucked away in his Range. That's when the scream-fest began.

"You see what happens when you make stupid ass decisions, Alexa?! Do you know how much trouble this is going to cause for everyone? I told you, Alexa! I tried to make sure you didn't do anything stupid. You know what? You're the one who makes your life difficult, not anyone else!"

Yeah, I had pretty much tuned him out. As his scolding went on and on, all I could think about was that I was pregnant. At 16. With my rapist's baby. How did my life turn out like this? What did I ever do wrong?

"Are you even listening to me?!" Louis growled next to me. I nodded absentmindedly and turned my attention back to the window. We were pulling into the parking lot of our apartment complex. As soon as we parked, Louis jumped out of the car and stormed inside, so I followed close behind him.

I had zoned out again, and next thing I knew I was following Louis into the open flat door. I was expecting it to be empty, but I was so wrong.

Kara was sitting on the couch watching TV with Harry, his arm thrown around her. Danielle and Liam were standing in the kitchen seemingly in a deep conversation. Niall, Zayn, Eleanor, Perrie, Jade, and Sam, (Jade'd boyfriend) were all gathered around the kitchen table playing some kind of game. They all fell silent and looked as Louis and I as we walked in.

There was an awkward silence before Zayn spoke up. "What did the doctor say?"

Louis turned to me. "Why don't you tell them, Alexa?" He asked stiffly.

I took a deep breath and looked at my feet. "I'm pregnant." I said quietly.

"What?!" Harry shouted, shooting up. I jumped a little, his outburst shooking me. He stared at me before shaking his head and slowly walking away to his room. I couldn't help but roll my eyes.

"Oh, c'mon, if you were a girl you'd be pregnant by now, too," I called after him. Probably not the best thing to say at the moment, but I was in a weird mood. Harry ignored me and continued walking towards his room.

"Alexa," Liam said seriously, "this isn't something to be joking about."

"You don't think I know that?" I whispered, my voice cracking. I shoved past all the dissaproving faces and enclosed myself in my room. Not even a minute later, the door opened. In came Jade. She didn't say anything, just sat on the edge of my bed.

"Are you the only one who doesn't hate me?" I asked, looking at my ceiling. She paused before answering.

"Lexi, I'm going to tell you like it is. I'm the only one in this flat who knows that this isn't you. Something's off about this story. Just please tell me what it is," Jade practically begged.

"I don't- I can't- I need you to know that you're right. Please don't give up on me like everyone else did. I want to tell you... but I don't want everyone else knowing. I know you wouldn't be able to keep if from Perrie, and she wouldn't be able to keep it from Zayn, and Zayn from the rest of the boys. I'm sorry."

Jade nodded sadly. "I get it, hun. But I really wish you'd reconsider telling-" My door opened again. This time it was Sam. He looked inbetween Jade and I.

"They sent me to come get you two," he informed us. I nodded, confused, and followed the two of them out to the main room. I stopped short when I saw something I'd never ever thought I'd see.

My cousin and my rapist shaking hands.
