Past And Future

Sorry I kept you guys waiting! I just haven’t been inspired lately but, I finally had ideas for how I wanted this chapter to play out, so I hope you guys enjoy this chapter, and I have decided that the next chapter will be the last chapter of Purdy Love, but don’t worry, there will be a sequel to this soon, I just need to think about how I want to write it and all that junk but I may start it next month but anyway enough of my rambling, here’s chapter 17 <3

                “Becca. Both tests are positive. Looks like I’m pregnant.” I managed to get out in between tears. “Really? Oh my god that’s great!! How are you gonna tell Ashley?” she asked me. “I’m not sure. I have to think about it.” I said sitting down on the couch. We spent the rest of the day watching movies waiting for the guys to get home. I decided to tell Ashley and the guys the news as soon as they got home and I called Sammi and Meaghan and told them to come over. The guys finally came home, and Ashley noticed that I was really quiet. “Babe what’s wrong? Is everything ok?” he asked me. “Um I have some news for you babe.” I said looking at him in the eye. “Oh should we leave?” Jake asked. “No no no. I want you guys to hear this too. Don’t worry its good news.” I said standing up and facing the guys. “Well Becca and I went to the drugstore today and bought two pregnancy tests because I missed my period and well, they both came out positive so I’m pregnant but I’m going to the doctor to double check that I’m really pregnant  because you can’t trust pregnancy tests alone.” I said giving them a small smile. “YAY WE’RE GONNA BE AUNTS!!” Sammi said hugging me. “That’s great babe. I’m so excited!” Ashley said hugging me.  “I know me too. I just hope the baby is ok.” I said smiling up at him.

                A few days later, I went to the doctor to make sure I was really pregnant, and to see how far along I was. “Well Mrs. Purdy, it looks like you are about two weeks pregnant. Congrats.” Dr. Andrews said.  “Really? Oh my god thank you so much! My husband is going to be very happy to hear the news.” I said smiling. “You are very welcome. I’ll see you in a month to check up on how you are progressing.” Dr. Andrews said smiling. As I left the office, I texted Ashley the news and he was very happy to hear it. Things are going so well in my life, and I couldn’t believe that it was actually my life. I had a happy marriage, great friends, and now I’m becoming a mother. I didn’t know if I wanted a boy or a girl, but as long as the baby was healthy, that’s all that matters to me. When I got home, Ashley greeted me with roses and a big hug. “I’m so happy that we are becoming parents.” He said smiling at me. “I am too.” I said smiling back.

                That night during dinner, I was thinking that I should go visit my mom’s grave site so she could be a part of the happiness that was going on in my life, and I wanted Ashley to go with me. “Babe I want to go visit my mom’s grave tomorrow. Will you go with me?” I asked him. “Yeah sure Stella. I would love to go with you. It would mean the world to me.” He said holding my hand. This is why I love him so much. He’s nice, caring, romantic, and he has completely changed his ways ever since we got married.

                The next day, we got up early since it was a long car ride to the cemetery. I had Ashley drive because I was too emotional to drive. Even though it’s been a few years since she passed away, the death of my mom was still painful, and it hurt me even more now that I was becoming a mom, and that she wasn’t going to be here to meet her first grandchild. When we finally got there, I placed my mom’s favorite flowers on her gravesite, and I just stared at her headstone in silence with tears running down my face. “Baby are you going to be ok?” Ashley asked me. “Yes, I just wish that she was here to meet our baby.” I said in tears. “She is here sweetheart. I know you felt her spirit at our wedding, and she would want you to be happy right now. She’s in your heart, and I know for a fact that she is smiling down at you and she’s proud of you. Never forget that.”Ashley said hugging me. “Thank you Ashley. I really needed to hear that.” I said hugging him back. We stayed for a few minutes, then I kissed her headstone, and then we headed home. I don’t know how I’m going to get through this pregnancy, but as long as I continue to have the love surrounding me like I do now, I can get through anything.

That’s all the ideas I have for now, but the last chapter will be a big one, and then I will go on my break before I get started on the sequel to this story. Thanks everybody! XOXO, Kristan
