Over the next week, I had to take the bus to school since David hasn't been going to school. He stayed in the hospital and I haven't been able to see or talk to him. I also got the job at Johnny's Pizza but ended up quitting after 5 days, working with food just wasn't for me.

When the week was over, my doorbell rang.

"Oh, hi David," I said.

He didn't say anything, he just hugged me.

"I've missed you so much baby."

"I've missed you too," I said, "come in."

We went up to my room and we just talked.

"I'm so sorry," he said, "I just get like that sometimes and I can't stop."

"I've noticed."

"I promise, I'm done being self destructive from now on. I'm going to start seeing a therapist and I'm going to get my life together."

"I think you should do that, it'll be good for you," I said.

"Do you want to see a movie or something tonight?" he asked, changing the subject.

"I'd love to," I said.

When we got to the movie theatre, he bought us two tickets for Captain Marvel.

I kept on glancing at him while we watched the movie, worrying. He seemed okay but I just knew he wasn't.


The next day, I waited and waited for him to finally get home from work. Once I saw his car in his driveway, I ran over to my tv and turned on my xbox. In about 5 minutes, he logged on too and we played GTA.

"Could you stop killing me?" I said through the headset.

"Nope," he chuckled.

It seemed like things were finally going back to normal, minus the fact that he and I haven't had sex since the pregnancy scare.

"I've been meaning to ask you something," he said on the headset after we decided we're going to stop playing for the night.

"Okay..." I said.

He logged off.

"What the.."

I heard a knock at the door. I opened it to see David with a bouquet of red roses.

"Will you go to prom with me?"

"Yes, of course I will!"

I took the roses and sniffed them. I couldn't wait to go dress shopping!

"Come to my car," he said, "I want to show you something."

"Oh, alright," I said.

I followed him and he led me to his backseat. He grabbed me and started kissing me.

"You tricked me," I stated.

"Don't act like you don't like it, it's been over a month."

I chuckled, "I never said I didn't like it, keep going."

One thing led to another and we ended up having sex in the backseat of his car, right in his driveway where either mine or his parents could have seen.

"Good thing our parents are all asleep and it's dark out, otherwise we probably would've been caught," he said.

"I think I would die if that happened," I joked.

"Maybe we can do this again tomorrow after school," he suggested.

"In the school parking lot?"
