: This is chapter two of my Shortland Street fan fic. Please read chapter 1 first if you haven't already.
Hunter just stared in shock. His eyes glazed over and he fainted on the bed.
"Hunter!" Morgan shouted forgetting that Callum and Sophie would be able to hear her. Morgan immediately began checking his vital signs to make sure he was okay. That's when Callum and Sophie rushed in.
"Why were you shouting Morgan? Is something wrong?" Callum asked her before looking at the bed where Hunter lay. "Is he okay?"
Morgan put a blanket over him to keep him warm. "He just fainted, I think it's because he saw me being sick". Morgan lied.
"The kid always had a weak stomach. Have you checked over him?" Callum asked ready to assist.
"Yes, everything's fine, he should wake up soon". Morgan replied.
Sophie was holding onto her father quite scared but now relieved that her brother would be okay.
"Take it easy Hunter. Slowly". Morgan told him helping him sit up.
"Oh man I fainted didn't I?" Hunter asked her embarrassed.
Morgan nodded. "Straight after I told you I was pregnant".
Hunter put his hand to his face and tried to think.
"Crap...I thought that was a dream. So what do we do now? Can't you get that pill so it'll stop you from being pregnant?" Hunter asked her trying to think of solutions to this big problem.
"But what if I want to stay pregnant Hunter? I thought over it for awhile and I would really like to be a mother". Morgan replied smiling.
Hunter took this in for a minute before getting up and pacing the room. "Morgan I'm too young to be a dad, but I will stay with you through this. The next problem we have is telling my dad."
"We don't have to tell your dad Hunter, it could be a secret". Morgan replied.
"You're going to start showing in a few months and then it won't be so secret anymore. We've only got a couple of months before we tell him". Hunter told her trying to work out how they would get through this situation. "And I think my dad might have his suspicions already, he asked if you were sick because of last night. Aw man he knew we had sex last night? That is so embarrassing".
Morgan and Hunter lay next to each other just breathing not really wanting to talk but just to lie there. Hunter thought about being a father, and if he was going to be a good father or not? And how were they going to tell his dad? Morgan was trying to figure out what Hunter was thinking. Morgan looked at her watch; it read 9:30 am.
"Damn I'm supposed to be at work right now, why didn't you tell me what the time was?" Hunter asked her rushing into his uniform and fixing up his hair.
"Well I wasn't really wondering what the time was, I'm sure Kieran will let you off". Morgan replied.
"See you later Morgan". Hunter said as he gave her a quick kiss on the cheek.
Hunter grabbed his bag from the kitchen and packed some food. Callum was watching t.v while Sophie was at school.
"Everything okay in there son?" Callum asked him. "You fainted before".
Hunter knew he couldn't tell his father the truth so lying was the best option.
"Yeah dad everything's fine, Morgan feels better now. Must be a 24 hour bug or something. Well I'm off to work". Hunter replied rushing his words. He was soon out of the room and heading towards work. Callum was a bit concerned that something wasn't right, but he just let it slip that they were just having relationship problems or something like that.
Morgan lay in bed still feeling a little sick so she just watched t.v in Hunter's room when she heard a knock on the door. "Come in" Morgan answered.
"Just me" Callum said as he entered Hunter's bedroom. "How are you feeling Morgan?"
"A little better, must be a bug going around or something" she replied keeping to her story.
"Hmm...That's what Hunter suggested it was too. Oh well I'll leave you to it, I was just checking in on you." Callum said as he was about to walk out the door. "And" Callum said backing back into the room. "If this sickness is caused by something else, please tell me about it. I don't want Hunter's life ruined by this".
He walked out of the room leaving Morgan feeling very worried that Callum had figured out why she was sick.
After a couple of hours Hunter came home and decided to take Morgan out for dinner, so, they could get away from the suspicious questions from Hunter's father.
"Thanks Hunter for taking me out, I think your dad knows about our situation. We have to tell him. It's the right thing to do" Morgan told him. Hunter shook his head.
"Let's talk about something else shall we? The chicken looks nice". Hunter replied changing the subject. He didn't want to talk about the baby and how they were going to tell his dad. When the time's right then it will happen.
"Hunter, I thought you would want to talk about our baby, after all you are its father." Morgan said.
"Please Morgan, not tonight we can talk about it tomorrow. Let's just make tonight about us" Hunter replied.
"But Hunter...this baby is part of us now. If you don't want to talk about it. I can go tell your father then!" Morgan told him, she got out off her seat and started to leave.
"Morgan, No! It will kill him to know that I'm going to be a father this young." Hunter whispered to her holding her back.
"So what you said this morning about telling your father in a couple of months before I start showing, was that a lie, are you never going to tell your father what's happened, that he's going to be a grand father. Hunter please" Morgan begged. "We have to tell him now, sooner rather than later".
Hunter thought about it logically. He nodded in agreement even though he didn't like the idea of telling him. In his heart he knew it was the right thing to do.
