Jack and Miyamoto sat silently in the doctors office. The to of them more frightened at hearing the doctors potential news then anything before. She held his hand trying to draw strength for what ever news awaited them. Jack was worried sick about his lover. "Jack I just want you to know I love you"
"Don't say it like were about to die please it makes me nervous"
The door then open and a man in a white coat came in.
His name tag read. Dr. Zan.
He sat down at the desk and pulled out some papers.
"So what is it doctor?" Jack choked out.
The doctor smiled.
"No need get worked she's in good health" the doctor said calmly.
Jack and Miyamoto sighed with relief.
"Then why have I been so sick in the morning and having pain sometimes?"
The doctor smiled and turned to Jack.
Jack hit the floor having fainted.
"I'm pregnant?" she gasped.
"Yes" the doctor replied calmly.
Miyamoto looked to Jack who was just now getting up, tears swelled in her eyes,
'oh this is a disaster what if Jack leaves me' she thought. She was shaken from her nightmarish thoughts when she felt Jack's arms coming around her.
"We have a lot to talk about" he said solemnly.
"Yeah" she gulped.
"Come on lets go for a walk" he said warmly. He took her hand and led her out of the doctors office and to a nearby park.
Miyamoto was scared, afraid of what a child would mean, afraid of what the boss would do to her or Jack for his part in it. She was mostly afraid Jack would leave her alone.
"Jack so... what are we going to do" she sniffed. Jack put a arm over her shoulder and held her close.
Miyamoto looked up at Jacks face and thought. 'look at him he's so calm, and look at me I'm in tears, it makes me feel so weak and pathetic when I see how calm he is'
As for Jack he was even more terrified then his partner but he was far better at hiding it.
He had his own thoughts to contend with.
'This is bad, a child will change everything even if we do put it up for adoption.
Things would never be the same after the pregnancy and if she wants to keep the child, then what, what kind of life could we offer a kid when we're part of team rocket '
Jack looked at his partner and could see how worried she was.
"Would it make you feel any better If I told you I was just as worried as you" he said and gave her a little squeeze
"Your really worried?" she asked hopefully.
"Of course this changes everything, I mean we only have two options availably, we can keep the child or out it up for adoption"
She smiled at him and tightened the hug a moment.
"Thanks It does make me feel better knowing your worried to, I hate feeling like the weak one.
Jack lifted her chin and kissed her, "You my dear are anything but weak"
"We have to tell the boss don't we?" she said sadly
"She's going to be really angry with me"
"Why you and not me?" she question lifting her head from his shoulder.
"Because I'm the reason your pregnant"
"Takes two to tango"
"One of the first things the boss said to me was step out of line with you and I'm dead"
Miyamoto kissed him lightly.
"Don't worry Jack we'll work things out"
(Three days later)
The two rockets sat in the dark office of Madam Boss waiting for her to arrive, right now all they had was eleven year old Giovanni to keep them company.
"So Jack I hear you got Miyamoto pregnant" Giovanni joked.
Jack turned to shocked Miyamoto.
"You told him!"
"No I didn't I haven't told anyone"
Giovanni's eyes were wide.
"I was just making a joke" he laughed.
"Is it to late to say we were just playing along?" Jack asked.
"Now it is" Giovanni smiled and left as his mother came in.
She sat down at her desk her cold stare breaking threw what ever walls of strength they had put up.
"You wanted to see me?"
Miyamoto fault back her tears.
"Well you see... I'm... I............ ",
"Yes?" the boss said growing annoyed.
"I'm pregnant!" she said finally.
The boss drew a deep breath and laid back in her chair.
"How far along?"
The boss sighed.
"I'm very disappointed in you Miyamoto didn't you use protection!?"
"Yes... but its not 100% effective" she choked.
Jack stroked her cheek and wiped away the tears.
The boss was curious in Jacks behavior.
"Does the father know?"
The boss sneered before speaking again.
"I take it the good for nothing man's run of already"
"what makes you think that?" Jack asked trying to hide his own anger.
"Because he's not here that's why at any rate our best option is abortion I can make the arrangements now" the boss said.
Miyamoto just sniffed and wiped away a few tears and nodded.
Madam Boss reached for the phone but Jack kicked it away.
"WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING!?" she demanded.
"I can't allow you to do this" he yelled.
"Its not your choice Jack, it doesn't involve you why are you even here!" the older woman screamed back.
"Because as the father I have to protect my child"
No one spoke, the only sound was the ticking of the clock.
"Miyamoto do you want the child?" the boss asked softly.
Miyamoto wiped her tears that ran down her face.
"I can't give up this baby, and yet I can't do this alone I can't" she cried out griping her stomach.
Jack gulped and held his girlfriends hand. He was nervous and it was quite easy to tell.
"Well then... I guess... All I... can say... is Miyamoto... me sweet will you umm, do you... would you maybe... do me the honor... conceder the possibility" Jack found himself unable to make complete sentences. The two woman in the room found it amusing and tried not to laugh it wasn't often Jack was this visually nervous.
'oh god what am I doing I sound like a idiot out with it Jack out with it'
He thought to him self.
Miyamoto had a good idea of what Jack was trying to do.
'oh my god he's going to ask me to marry him, I can't believe it! ok calm down girl you know just what to say'
"Miyamoto will you marry me?"
Her eyes filled with tears.
She leaped into his arms and Jack whirled her around.
"Guess this means your not going to run out of her huh?" The boss question.
"I guess the next step is to tell the others" Jack smiled.
"Wait a second Jack, I want to keep this our little secret for awhile I don't want to deal with another big fuss so soon" She looked at him with her bright pleading eyes.
"ok mums the word" Jack laughed.
Miyamoto elbowed him in the ribs.
The Boss just sighed and thought to herself.
Nine months of this dear god!, "You two can go now, I'll think up some kind of job for the time being"
Miyamoto raised her voice to protest.
"That's ok I can still do my normal job well pregnant for while"
"NO!" Jack and the Boss screamed in unison.
The partners, friends, lovers and parents to be, left the boss's office.
"Jack I'm hungry"
"What would you two like to eat" Jack asked.
"Strawberries" she replied licking her lips.
Miyamoto just shrugged.
"Some chocolate pudding to dunk it it."
After a quick trip to market Jack returned with plastic box strawberries and some
They sat on the couch while she ate, smiling after each bite. Jack had his arm around her and a smug look on his face.
"I think our daughter will be so beautiful" Miyamoto sighed. Placing a hand over her stomach.
"How do you know its a girl... never mind" Jack added once the glare of his future wife set in.
