Chapter 10

"Hey Alexia?" Cheater asked later that evening as he and Alexia relaxed in her living rom. They were both tired from the tests of the day, and spending time with the rest of the kids. Alexia had been laying her head on his chest, so she had to turn to look at him.

"Yeah Cheater?" She asked.

"I don't know how to say this..." He said, absolutely refusing to look at her.

"Go ahead. I don't think anything you say at this point will actually faze me after everything that we've been through so far." She said with a small laugh.

"Well, you're getting kinda big. Like, really big." He said, his face very serious. Alexia laughed lightly.

"I am pregnant you know. Women tend to get fat when they're pregnant."

"No you don't understand what I'm trying to tell you. You look too big to only be having one baby, or it would be one huge baby. Have you ever thought that you might be having twins?" Cheater asked gently. Alexia's mouth dropped open and she would have fallen off the couch had it not been for Cheater catching her.

"W-what?" She stuttered. "Twins! You've got to be kidding me!' She said loudly, sitting straight up.

"No, it makes sense. They could have easily given you fertility treatments without you knowing it. It's not like they have ever really told you what they're injecting you with." He said, rubbing her arm slowly to try and keep her calm.

"How could they not tell me something as big as that?" Alexia asked despairingly, burying her face in Cheater's chest. "Surely it would have been safer for everyone if I already knew about having a second baby."

"Do they ever have a reason for what they do though?" Cheater asked, rubbing small circles on her back by that point.

"No..." She said softly in reply. "What if it actually is twins though? What will I do with two babies? One will change my life enough but two babies? How will I even be able to take care of two babies?"

"Maybe we can get them to put our apartments together and turn one of our living rooms into an extra bedroom or something so I can help you more." He said, putting his hand under Alexia's chin and making her look at him. "Everything will be just fine, ok? If nothing else I'll sleep on your living room couch to be there for you."

''I have another test tomorrow." Alexia said quietly. "I can make him tell me the number of babies I'll be having, even if he won't tell me a gender."

"No you won't." Cheater said matter-of-factly. Alexia frowned confusedly.

"What are you talking about? Of course I will."

"No, we both will. I told you that you'll never be alone like that and I meant it. Anytime you need me, I'll be there for you. I mean that." Cheater said with a slight smirk. He wrapped both arms around Alexia and held her tightly.

"You're just saying that because you feel like you're responsible for me being pregnant. But there was nothing you could do Cheater. It's not like you or I could have done anything to stop them. Please don't pity me, because I don't want it. Thanks anyway." Alexia said, getting up from the couch. Before she could move away though, cheater wrapped his arm around her waist and pulled her back down beside him.

"No, I'm not. Now if you'll just sit down and listen to me I'll explain. To start with, I know you well enough that I would never try to offer you pity. But for the record, I'm not doing any of this because I pity you or because I feel responsible for this." Cheater said, making Alexia look him in the eye.
