Ava hummed lowly to herself and pushed the Walmart buggy down an isle full of cereal boxes and snacks. She was grocery shopping, since she and Blue were down on groceries. But mostly because she's been having severe cravings.
"Really Ava? Whatchu tryna do buy the whole damn store?" Vanessa asked jokingly, watching as Ava threw Cheerios, Frosted Flakes, Apple Jacks, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, fruity pebbles in the buggy along with a variety of different chips and snacks.
Vanessa had decided to join her since they both had got off of work at 5:30pm.
"Girl I'm hungry, leave me alone." Ava chuckled, looking down into the over filled buggy. She shook her head from side to side wondering what had got into her.
"Oh see uh-uhn this is why you gaining so much weight." Vanessa laughed.
Ava frowned, "I'm gaining weight?" She looked down at her thick thighs that made her black leggings look like skin.
"Um yes... you ain't notice?"
"Nope. I must look fat or some?"
Vanessa shook her head, "Naw but you've definitely gained."
"You know? That's funny because I've been sick and throwing up a lot. I should be losing weight..."
Vanessa raised her eyebrows in a questioning way and stared at her friend for a long time.
"What?" Ava said staring back at her awkwardly.
"So let me get this straight.. you've been having all these cravings, period ain't started yet and throwing up?" Vanessa said throwing out hints.
Nonchalantly, Ava nodded.
"No plan b?"
Gasping in surprise, Ava busted out in laughter. "Girl no,"
"Aww you're pregnant.. congrats," Vanessa cheesed playfully rubbing Ava's stomach. "What you want a boy or girl?" she joked.
"Um first of all, I'm not pregnant. Second, when I do get pregnant I want to have a boy first."
Vanessa laughed softly and shook her head, "Come on baby, were gonna take a pregnancy test. And, I know that you and Blue be getting freaky because it's all in your walk." She grabbed Ava's hand and led her to the medicine isle where a bunch of pregnancy test lay.
"You're having all the symptoms so here. Just to be on the safe side," Vanessa grabbed two pregnancy test and threw them in the buggy carelessly.
As Ava began to think about it, she started to feel like it was true which cause a nausea feeling to erupt in her body. Simon said it, Vanessa said it. Angelina even asked Ava if she was pregnant once.
The only people who were oblivious to the situation were Ava and Blue.
Blue already had enough on his plate. Ava having another one of his kids was the last thing on his mind even though he was busting more nuts than a squirrel.
"What are you gonna do when you find out?" Vanessa asked, slamming Ava out of her thoughts.
They exited the isle and head towards a check out line. "I don't know," Ava chewed on her fingers nails in anxiety.
This is not how she was planning on living her life. She didn't want a baby right now. At least not before she went to college.
"You good girl?" Vanessa asked sensing the current change of vibe. Ava quickly nodded and began to put the groceries up for scan.
