CHAPTER 1: ANA'S POV.
"Mom just one hour more!", Mila actually screamed in my ear, for the fifth time in 10 minutes. Hmm, someone needs a scolding soon.
"No Mila, its already past 10.", i said as calmly as possible to my 5 year old daughter.
She needs to know the truth, my inner goddess piped in.
"But i want to meet dad!" not today, please not again. I'm already tired. My boss is being an ass lately giving heaps of manuscripts to read in just a day!
"He is busy" i said, not thinking twice before answering. this has become our usual bickering. her asking about her 'dad' and me giving a monotone reply every single night.
"You always say that! i want to meet him today! he always leaves for work before i wake up & comes after i go to bed! Not today please mom!" she made a sad puppy face to emphasis her point.
"Mila" i said as convincing as possible "he is not in town this month. he has gone overseas for a business trip remember?".
Why do you always lie?!, my inner goddess scowled.
"Okay.." her face fall and without anymore arguements went to bed with her Mr. Hugs. I feel terrible for her, she has never met her father. Why? Because i was a coward enough to confront Christian about my pregnancy. So what did i do? Ran. Ran and Ran till i found myself in a new place, unknown place with an unknown identity..
6 years before:-
Shit! how did i forget to take the shots?! it was literally the first condition Dr. Greene put is to remember to take shot every month. One month i did not & bam i become pregnant! Am i that fertile?!
I paced back and forth, not knowing how should i confess this to Christian. How should I? simply tell him or tell him stories and then about the main part. i guess going indirect will anger him more so maybe directly? But i'm not ready for his warth.. i threw my self pregnancy test in the dustbin somewhere in the city. I can't go to Dr. Greene's office, she may tell Christian about it. Maybe the results were false.. i mean i took only 3 tests..
But all were positive, my subconscious nudged.
I wasn't looking when i bumped into a hard chest. I looked up to meet grey eyes and i knew he caught me in my inner dilemma.
"What happened", Christian asked, his brows furrowed.
"What? um.. nothing? wait how are you so early" i said desperately trying to change to subject.
"There wasn't much to do today", he shrugged and gave me a peck on the lips. instantly a smile spread across his face. i tried to smile back but i'm pretty sure i look constipated right now. "Damn i'm hungry. What's for dinner today?"
"Fish & lentil soup!" Mrs. Jones piped in. Christian discreetly made a face at this weird combo. The thing is, i can't keep anything down since i found out i was pregnant. So i told Gail to make lentil soup for me, atleast liquid will be better to consume than solid food.
"i'll freshen up first" Christian said and went straight to his room. Meanwhile i made a decision on how should i present the scenario to Christian. I really hope it works.
As Christian poped another piece of fish in his mouth and checked his mails simultaneously, i contemplated weather i should say something now or in bed. Gail is in the kitchen and i don't want her to hear anything. She knows something is off with me today but she was kind enough not to ask about it. Maybe she sensed its something not related to work.
"Why aren't you eating" Christian scowled at me.
"Just.." i cannot eat fish right now because its smell is making me want to gag, i wanted to say but said "not hungry today".
He narrowed his eyes at me but a ping from his phone distracted him. "Ana eat something atleast" he said distractedly.
"So!" i tried to sound as enthusiastic as i can "you know a girl from work is pregnant!"
He looked at me for a second before resuming his work again. "Who is it?"
"Oh no one you know. She is really happy about it but said she doesn't want to tell her boyfriend about it"
"Why?" now he looks interested.
"Because she doesn't think he will accept it. And she doesn't want to abort the child"
"Oh, but that's not fair"
Yes! That is the reaction i want! "But what if the boyfriend forces her to abort?"
"No one force someone to abort of course. And if they do, they are with the wrong person"
"I know right? i try to tell her that. Hope someone give her some brains in life" i said jokingly but actually freaking out inside.. now is the time. "Christian?"
"What if i tell you i was pregnant? What will you do?" my said, my breathe hitched in my throat. oh gosh i said it! what will he say?!
"You are pregnant?!" a look of horror painted his face and instantly all my intentions and happiness went down the drain.
"No! Just asking.. Jeez look at your face!" i tried and laughed but got absolutely no reaction so i stopped.
"Well.. i don't know. I've never thought about it. I'm not against kids.. but definitely not one now. Maybe in distant future..?" So he is not against the notion..
"But what if it was a situation now?" i tried again.
"Why are we talking about pregnancy? Do you want kids Ana?" he asked, quizzical now.
"Not really, but i think a kid now can make our life more happy"
"Ana" he put his phone down, "We are a bit young for kids now, you are young! you just started working! A child is a big responsibility Ana.."
"Yeah, i know. But i can do both, work & taking care of the baby" and i saw some weird emotion cross his eyes.
"Not now Ana, in future maybe, not now. Complete your meal" he said and i knew the conversation was done.
And not only the conversation, also something else felt being broken too, only i could pin point it until the day after..
