Chapter 9

“Experiments are absolutely horrible and I know I’ve said that before.  But tests are pretty bad too.  Especially when they’re tests to do with being pregnant.”  Alexia said as she eased herself down onto the couch in his apartment.

Cheater chuckled, gently pointing to her now bulging stomach.  She was about seven months pregnant, and had just come back from more of Dillenwater’s tests.  He didn’t do very much, just the normal checkups a pregnant woman would get as well as a few extras.

“It can’t be that bad.”  He said, offering her a reassuring smile.  Alexia shook her head.

“Not really bad, just infuriating.  They’ve done ultrasounds, and I’m sure that by now the baby has grown enough to tell it’s gender.  I think that Dillenwater knows and just isn’t telling me.”  Alexia said, laying her head on Cheater’s shoulder.  He put his arm around her gently.

“But what reason does he have for doing that?”  Cheater asked with a slightly raised eyebrow.  Alexia frowned back at him.

“I have no idea to be honest.  He probably just wants to torture me.  I wouldn’t put it past him.”  She said, leaning back against the arm of the couch with her feet resting on Cheater’s lap.  “My feet hurt.”

“I’m sorry.”  Cheater replied, looking at her strangely.  “What am I supposed to do about it?”

Alexia frowned at him and wiggled her feet in the air.  “Rub them?”  She asked as sweetly as she could muster.  Cheater frowned right back, but ended up nodding anyway.

“Oh alright.  But only because of your condition.”  He said, grabbing her feet.  Alexia smirked, laying a hand on her huge stomach.

“Oh really,”  She said, staring at her stomach.  “So I can get special treatment from you if I play the pregnancy card.  That’s great to know, but I wish I’d known that during the last seven months.”  She joked, earning a frown from Cheater.

“Hey, I’ve been great to you for the last few months!”  He said indignantly, continuing to rub her feet.  What Cheater said was true; he’d taken good care of her since they had been brought back to the school.  He offered to make her meals, did things for her, and watched her like a hawk.  He seemed to be very worried about her well-being during the pregnancy, which Alexia found both endearing and annoying.

Alexia had always been a very independent person, and she didn’t enjoy being treated as though she were breakable and unable to do things.  She liked doing things for herself, and Cheater didn’t want to allow her too much of that.  Although she did enjoy the foot rubs profusely.

“And I appreciate the thought.”  Alexia said, reaching over and patting Cheater’s head like a dog.

“Yeah, you better.  I can’t say I really like rubbing your feet.”  Cheater said, scrunching up his nose.

“Now I never said that you had to rub them, I just asked.”  Alexia said with a smile.  Cheater frowned back at her and shook his head.

“But I couldn’t say no to that!  I’d feel horrible!”  Cheater exclaimed.

“Either way, I got a free foot rub out of it didn’t I?”  Alexia asked with a slight smirk as Cheater frowned.

“You evil woman.”  Cheater mumbled from the other side of the couch.

“Well, they do say that pregnant women are moody, so I guess that evil works there too.”  She said happily.  A moment later, she let out a little gasp and gently pressed her hand to her stomach.
