It wasn't an easy thing to say. And he certainly didn't make it any easier. He seemed so sweet at times, but now she knew that it was all just an act. He didn't care. T for language.

A/N: Alright, I told y'all I'd be writing another oneshot! :) I hope y'all like this one!
Sonny sat on the stool in front of her vanity mirror. Vanity mirror was such a silly term in Sonny's case. She was anything but vain. She wasn't even contemplating her exterior appearance -she was trying to look deeper within herself, attempting to find some answers. It wasn't working.
Sonny was pulled from her state of thought by knock on the door. She took a deep breath as she stood to open it, knowing - and dreading - who it was.
Sonny plastered a fake smile on her face as she opened the door. She was not at all surprised to see the face of Chad Dylan Cooper.
"Hey, Chad!" she greeted, her happy façade in place. Chad wasn't falling for it, however. Something in her voice gave away the fact that something was tearing her up inside.
"Sonny, is everything alright?" Chad asked.
"Yeah, totally," she lied unconvincingly. "Everything's great!"
"Then why did you want me to come over here? It's a bit risky – don't you think? – considering nobody knows we're together."
"We're not together," Sonny interceded. "You and I are complicated. Which makes this situation even more complicated."
"What situation?" Chad questioned. When Sonny didn't answer, Chad stared deep into her eyes, caressing her cheek with his thumb. "C'mon, you can tell me. It's why you asked me to come over, isn't it?"
"Chad," she pleaded softly, "you have no idea how difficult this is."
"I can't have any idea if you don't tell me what's going on."
Sonny looked down at her feet and Chad noticed a single tear fall from her eye. Chad softly lifted her chin up so her gaze met his.
"Tell me, Sonny," he commanded gently.
Sonny took a deep breath. "Um, I don't really know how to say this. I..."
Sonny paused, but Chad pressed on. "You...?"
"Chad, I'm pregnant."
Chad took a step back, taking in Sonny's words. His hand fell from her face. His mind couldn't put together sentences. He didn't know what to say. But he said something. And he didn't even realize until after he saw Sonny's face what exactly it was that had tumbled from his mouth.
"Get rid of it."
Sonny's hand protectively flew to her stomach. Her heart felt like shattered glass. "Chad, I can't do that!" she cried.
More words fell from his mouth. "Fine, keep it. Whatever. But don't expect me to have anything to do with it. And you better not tell anyone it's mine. I'm not going to let you ruin me like that."
It didn't take a second thought before Sonny's palm connected with Chad's cheek. She didn't regret it either.
"You asshole," Sonny spoke, her voice shaking, yet strong. "I don't know how I could have ever thought that you had changed. Obviously you still can't manage to think of anyone but yourself. You're worried about your reputation? What about me? I'm the one who has to live with the proof under my shirt. I'm the one people will be calling a slut. I'm the one who's going to lose my job because of this."
"Oh, Chuckle City will be completely lost without you! They're going to lose all ten viewers!"
Sonny glared at Chad, hatred seeping through her veins. Her fists clenched as she spoke. "I'm not going to tell anyone who the father is because we both know I'm not that kind of person. But I hope to God that there is some shot in hell of you taking a bit of responsibility. Because you know this is just as much your fault as it is mine."
"It's not my fault you can't resist Chad Dylan Cooper," he said with a cocky smile.
What a 180 he had done since he had first gotten to her dressing room.
Sonny slapped him again.
"You know what?" Sonny questioned rhetorically. "I don't want you to be in this child's life anyway. Because you are an irresponsible, arrogant bastard! My life and this baby's life would be better off without you."
Chad stared back at Sonny, trying to comprehend her words. He began to open his mouth to speak – to apologize, to explain; something! – but Sonny stopped him.
"Get out," she spoke coldly, her voice clearly about to break.
Chad turned and left the room. Locking the door behind him, Sonny put her back against the door and slid down. She buried her face in her hands and let the tears she had been trying to hold in fall.
Sonny gently placed her hand on her stomach. "It's just you and me now." A tear rolled down her face. "We don't need him."
A/N: So, what'd ya think? I know, I know…that was sad…and Chad was a jackass. But see, that's what I had intended to do with my last oneshot…the speech Sonny gave in Coward was all supposed to lead to her being pregnant and him not taking responsibility for it, but I couldn't get it to work out, so I decided to make a different story. I had to write this. Haha. Anyway, this IS a oneshot…but if you like it, please put it on your alerts because I MIGHT continue soon…well, maybe not SOON…but eventually…I'm done with school in 7 weeks…maybe then…? Idk. Just an idea. Haha. Anyway, please review! :)
