Melissa and Joey Fan fiction
"Come on Lenox, Ryder!" Joe called up the stairs as he put on his jacket. "You're going to be late for school!" He took his keys of the coffee table and opened the front door.
Lenox stormed down the stairs, grabbed her backpack and stomped out the door.
"Morning Joe" Ryder said as he came down and picked his back pack.
"What's up with her?" Joe asked.
"Don't ask me." Ryder snapped. In an effort to cover up his attitude he added "Lenox never tells me anything!"
The car was completely silent for most of the drive. Lenox sat in the back seat, writing in a little notebook she had taken to expressing her feelings when she didn't have her computer. Joe sat at the wheel, squinting into the rear view mirror in an attempt to read her thoughts. Ryder sat in the passenger seat, texting someone, probably Holly. Lenox got out as quickly as possible when Joe pulled the car up in front of the school. Ryder followed waving good bye to Joe as he walked inside school.
Joe was cleaning the bathroom when someone knocked on the door. Joey answered it and found Stephanie, nervously holding a huge stack of papers.
"Hi Joe, is Melissa home?" She said anxiously.
"No, I thought she was at the office. She left this morning early in the morning."
"Oh shoot. She was at work this morning, but she left early. I had to get these papers to her and I assumed that she would be here. You know since she lives here and -"
"Well, she's not." Joe said abruptly.
"Oh. Okay" Stephanie seemed hurt.
"Sorry." Joe said. He put his arm around her to comfort her. She scared expression turned into a broad smile. "I am just in the middle of some cleaning and I was on a role when you interupted me... Did you try calling Mel?"
"I should have done that!" Stephanie cried. She pulled out her cell phone and dialed Melissa's number.
Joe went back to work. He began scrubbing the sink of the downstairs bathroom.
"She didn't answer." Stephanie reported. "Can I use your bathroom?"
"Sure, but not this one. Go upstairs to Lenox and Ryder's bathroom."
Stephanie rushed up the stairs as fast as her little legs could carry her. As she ran up the stairs, Mel came through the front door. When Joe saw her, an expression of relief spread across his face.
"Thank goodness you're okay!" Joe ran to hug Melissa but stopped awkwardly and just stood there. In a calmer manner he said "'Cause, you know, Stephanie told me you left work early and you weren't here and I was just concerned about whether you were going to make it to Ryder's game. Yeah."
"I'm fine." Mel laughed. "And of course I won't miss Ryder's game."
"Well, where were you." Joe asked, trying to remain cool.
"I was, um, on a lunch date." Mel said. She looked at him, waiting for his response
"Oh." Joe said, with a hint of jealousy.
"You know what, Longo?"
"I think I will go to the bathroom in your fresh clean bathroom!"
"NO. I am not finished! Go upstairs!"
"Fine. I know how ladies can be about their bathrooms."
Mel started to make her way up the stairs just as Stephanie was coming down.
"Oh Mel, you're here!" Stephanie said excitedly. She continued in a nervous tone "You may want to hear what I have to say."
"But I have to pee!"
"This might be slightly more important."
"Fine" The two of them walked down the stairs and into the living room. Joe had started going back to the bathroom.
"Joe don't go." Stephanie said firmly. "I have something I think you should see."
"What is it?" Melissa and Joey said and the same time.
"I found this in Lenox's trash can." Stephanie pulled out a pregnancy test from her pocket. "It's positive..."
