Cameron and Julie were typical rich teenagers taking an advantage of the success of their parents. They had money and fame and they used it whenever they could.
Julie was especially famous on Instagram.
“Hashtag Camelie,” she mumbled to herself as she was posting a picture of her and Cameron on her profile.
They were the perfect couple. Online. The reality, however, was very different. They were far from perfect.
Every since they started dating after Cameron’s sister’s death they were both enjoying the company of other people. They weren’t exactly cheating since they both knew about each others sexual partners.
“I’m bored,” Julie said to her boyfriend, “we should make a scandal. Something crazy, like get married or something.”
“I’ll marry you any time, baby. When and where?” Cameron joked.
“I mean it, you jerk,” the girl slapped his shoulder, “I want attention.”
“Trust me, I know,” he laughed and then continued, “you know what? Why don’t we do it. Get married. Or at least engaged. See how my father likes that.”
“Dale, Dale,” Julie ran into the house when they came back from the beach,”guess what.”
Dale was like her father, he was around her whole childhood. Her parents and Dale and Becca were very close friends.
“Umm, I don’t know? You got a new purse?”
“Nooo. I’m engaged. Cameron asked me to marry him.”
Dale scratched his head and looked over at his fiancee who was loading the dishwasher,”he did?”
“Yes, can you believe it?”
“No. No I can’t. But you’re not even eighteen yet.”
“I know. Almost, tho.”
The girls skipped away leaving Dale in shock.
Hopefully they’ll realize it’s a mistake, he thought. But he will have to deal with this later. Now he had a weekend with his fiancee planned and he wanted to give her full attention.
“Good morning, sir,” the blonde woman at the hotel reception said, “do you have a reservation?”
“Yes, hello, my name is Dale Cooper. We have a honeymoon suit.”
“Oh welcome, Mr. Cooper, and congratulation on your marriage.”
It was Dale’s second marriage but the first for Kirsten since she was fifteen years younger than him.
She couldn’t stop admiring the ring. Their wedding was small and private. Just the two of them, but that didn’t matter to her. She loved Dale very much. They had so much in common and now there was one other thing she will share with him. She will have to finally tell him.
“So, honey,” she started after dinner, “I have some news.”
“Ok, good news, I hope,” Dale joked.
“I hope so,” she laughed nervously,”I know it’s not the best timing with everything that’s going on with Cam…”
“Just say it Kay,” he placed his hand on her shoulder to calm her down.
“Ok,” she took a deep breath,”I’m pregnant.”
Dale was just blabbering for a second. He didn’t really think he will be a father again. He wasn’t sure he was a very good father to the children he already had. His son started drinking when he was only fifteen, is sleeping around and wants to get married before he even turns eighteen. And his daughter…well…he wasn’t even able to keep her alive.
“Are you mad?” Kirsten asked carefully, interrupting his thoughts.
“Mad? Of course not, sweetie,” he hugged his wife, “just surprised, that’s all. I can’t wait to have a baby with you.”
