I dropped Seven off at home and drove straight to Francesca's condo. I knocked on the door and she answered in a towel. She moved to the side and I walked in. She didn't look like herself.
"I came to talk to you." I say watching her walk into her bedroom. I followed her and sat on her bed. She dropped her towel and started putting lotion on her body. I
"Talk." She said because I was staring at her body. I closed my eyes hard and turned away.
"I just wanted you know I wasn't ignoring you or the baby. I just needed some time to think about it. I'm engaged and I just was trying to figure out some shit." I explained to her. I looked at her and she was still naked. I saw her protruding belly. She rubbed coco butter onto her stretch marks.
"Look I know you're only here because your father made you. You don't want anything to do with this baby." She said putting on her bra and panties. She was breathing heavily and she sat on the bed and leaned against the headboard. I tried to put my hand on her thigh but she slapped it away.
"Don't fucking touch me!" She said looking angry. I had never seen her upset about anything. She was always happy go lucky even since we were children.
"I just wanna make things right." I say and she bit her lip and tears went down her face.
"Talk to me please. I really do wanna be there. I just was thinking of how to play this." I said getting closer to her and wiping her tears. I sat next to her and she leaned her head on my shoulder.
"I know you don't want this but neither do I. I hate that you treating me like I did this on purpose." She said between sobs. I wrapped my arm around her and rubbed her arm. Then I put my other hand on her belly.
"I promise to be there from now on. How far along are you?" I ask her and she sits up and grabs an ultrasound picture out of the beside drawer. She handed it to me.
"I'm 35 weeks and it's a girl. I wanna name her-"
"London, because you had a bestfriend names London in Pre-K. She was -" I spouted off facts and she smiled at me. She had met a girl named London that she
"The nicest girl I ever met." She said finishing the sentence. I stared at the picture and saw the beautiful girl on this 3D ultrasound.
