I was in class and started feeling sick but I held it in. I left my book bag and ran to throw up. After throwing up I left the stall. I saw Hazel standing at the sink crying into her hands.
"Hey, are you okay?" I ask slowly walking up to her. I had my hand on my belly trying to soothe this baby. She turned around and looked at me and seemed shocked. I washed my hands as she wiped her face.
"It's nothing just cramps." She said walking out but I followed her.
"Hey Hazel please don't make me run I'm pregnant." I say laughing because she had walked so far so fast. She turned around and laughed and waited for me to catch up.
"Let's go outside and talk." I said hoping she would accept and she nodded. We walked outside and sat on the bench behind the school. People were eating lunch but far away from us.
"This is where me and Frank first talked." She said with a smile on her face. I felt my heart drop forgetting that he wasn't my boyfriend. She stared out into the field. I stared at her studying her body language.
"You gonna tell me what's wrong?" I ask her and she blew out a breath of frustration and shook her head. I saw tears falling down and I wiped one away.
"Holding that in ain't good for you. Trust me, I promise I can't judge because I'm currently pregnant with my second child by my second man." I joke and she chuckled a little. I reached for her hand and held it.
"My aunt went to jail. I don't want to say what for but she was all I had. My parents died and she was the only one I had left. I don't have any family." She said fighting through tears. I stayed silent as she cried. I tried to imagine how she would feel.
"Frank went to jail well into our relationship. I loved him and we had built such a strong bond. Then he went away. And I soon found out I was pregnant.But you know how I got through it?" I ask her and she looked at me.
"I took it one day at a time. I got down on my knees and prayed and prayed until I could wake up and not cry." I said and she put her head down but I lifted it up.
"Keep your head up." I said but she cried. I grabbed both her hands and she looked away.
"Look at me. Look at me Hazel." I demanded and she looked breaking down. I put my hands on her face and wiped away her tears.
"I can't do this anymore." She said he body shaking from the sobs. I pulled her in my arms and rubbed her back.
"You gone be okay. It's gonna take time but God doesn't put anything on you that you can't bare. Just hold on a little while longer. Just hold on Hazel." I said swaying from side to side slowly. She held on me for dear life and I just held her while she was sobbing.
"All my family is gone. You had a reason to hold on. You had a baby growing inside you." She said letting go and wiping her tear stained face. This girl was a fucking bag of water . But I know she was hurting, I could see it on her.
"Find a reason to hold on. There are so many you can choose one. And if you need help I'm here. You can always take Kai." I said trying to joke and she laughed a little. I got up and walked over to a group of freshman eating lunch.
"H-Hey Seven!" One of them smiled at me and I smiled back and waved.
"Can I borrow a napkin?" I ask and she almost broke her arm handing me a napkin. I grabbed it and thanked with a smile. I walked back to the bench and handed it to Hazel.
