About month and a half after the party, Becca started to feel sick pretty much every day, especially in the morning. First she thought it was something she ate but very soon she realized what it was. She was pregnant. She was sure of it.
What am I going to do, she thought. How am I going to tell my parents their fifteen years old daughter is going to have a baby.
Peter never replied to any of her texts and was avoiding her at school. She felt so stupid for believing his lies. She should have known better.
“Hey girl, what’s so urgent?” Dana asked when she came out of her house to meet Becca.
“You would know if you weren’t spending ninety nine percent of your time with my stupid brother.”
“Sorry, but I have to say, he’s a lot more fun than you lately.”
Becca wanted to be mad but she had bigger problem to deal with and Dana was the only friend she could trust.
“Yea about my moods….I think it could be because..”
“Because what, what’s going on?” Dana asked impatiently.
“I think I’m pregnant, Dana.” Saying it out loud made it feel so real that she just started crying. She couldn’t hold it in anymore.
Dana was in shock. She didn’t even know Becca already lost her virginity.
“Pregnant? With who? What do you mean?”
“With Peter. I didn’t tell you because I was so embarrassed that he just used me”
“Oh my God, you poor thing. Come here.” and she just held her for a long while.
“You know you have to tell your mom, right?”
“I know,” Becca said quietly, “I will tell her tomorrow morning.”
“Mom, can I talk to you?”
“Sure sweetheart, what is it?”
“Ok…umm…you will be really disappointed and probably really really mad at me and you will probably hate me forever-“
“Just say it Becca. No matter what it is I will never hate you, you’re my child.”
“Ok…umm…I think I’m pregnant.”
And then there was silence. A looong moment of silence.
“Mom, say something.”
“You’re pregnant?! How can you be pregnant! You’re fifteen for Christ’s sake!”
“I’m sorry.” Becca looked down on the floor. She couldn’t stand to look at her mother’s face full of disappointment.
“Sorry… She’s sorry,” Adeline said in a very high voice. She was talking to herself at this point, trying to process the news her youngest daughter just delivered to her.
“Do you have any idea how much you messed up, Becca? Not only you were having sex this young but you were stupid enough not to use any protection. I thought we talked to you kids about sex enough but apparently not. Who is the father?”
“I don’t wanna say.”
“Who is the father, Becca. His parents have to know what’s going on.”
“Absolutely not, mom. He doesn’t eve like me. I will tell him myself, I promise.”
“We’ll figure this out later. I have to call the doctor now and make an appointment for my pregnant daughter. Excuse me.” she walked away and shut the door to the master bathroom behind her. And then she cried..How could I fail as a mother this badly, she thought to herself.
For Becca it felt like a huge weight just fell off her shoulders. Her mom was angry at her but she knew she would be. At least there is no more secrets. Now she had to tell Peter..
He wasn’t answering any of her texts of calls so she went down to the beach where all the seniors were having a party.
“What the hell Becca, are you following me now?! If you didn’t get the hint, I don’t actually love you and don’t wanna be your boyfriend or whatever.”
“Get over yourself, Peter. I don’t love you either. Unfortunately I convinced myself that I do and was stupid enough to have sex with you. And now I’m pregnant. And before you ask, yes. it is yours. Just thought you should know.”
And just like that she said what she needed to say and left, not turning back.
Adeline quickly came around and now she couldn’t wait to become a grandma. A little early, sure, but that’s life. Not everything can be planned.
Adam had a hard time accepting his little girl is not little anymore but even he got over it and started to look forward for the new role.
Adeline and Adam met with Peter’s parents even though Becca begged them to let it go. The Colbats made it pretty clear they don’t want anything to do with the baby. They wanted Peter to go to college and be successful and, in their eyes, that didn’t include having a baby at seventeen.
Becca was focused on school more than ever now, when she couldn’t party and Dana was always busy with Brandon. She wasn’t giving up on her dream of becoming an actress and she couldn’t be a high school drop out.
She always wanted to go to California Institute of the Arts but plans changed now. She will take acting classes at the Kensington community college and go to castings.
Carissa was born shortly after Becca turned sixteen. She fell in love with her the second she first laid eyes on her and she knew then, that she would never be the same.
