Chapter 1 – I'm what?

I paced back and forth around the room not sure of what to do. I don't need this right now. I'm on the honor roll. I have a future to think about. Please, don't let me be pregnant. Ten minutes had passed and I went into the bathroom. I picked up the pregnancy test and sure enough I was pregnant.

"Oh god, this can't be happening now," I said to myself.

I slid down to the floor silently weeping to myself. All I wanted to do was scream at the top of my lungs, but I couldn't. I started to fall asleep when I heard my mother call my name.

"Liberty? Liberty? Where are you honey?" My mom yelled.

I cracked the door open. "I'm right here mom!"

"Where exactly is here?!"

Instinctively I threw the test into the trash before she got to the bathroom. I got up and walked out the door over to my mother who was now in my room picking up my clothes off the floor.

"I was in the bathroom mom, what did you want?"

"Liberty, you really need to pick up your room it's such a mess."

"Yes I know mother, now what did you want?"

My mother then got up. "You don't have to get snippy with me! I just wanted to know if you had any dirty clothes and it's obvious that you do."

I smirked, "Obviously there is. Do you need anything else?"

"I don't like your attitude Liberty. You better think about who you're talking to!"

"I'm sorry mom," I sighed, "I've just been having a bad day."

"Do you want to talk about it?"

"Um, maybe later. Now if you would be so kind as to leave my room?"

"I'm going, I'm going. Sheesh."

As she left I closed the door. I went and just fell onto my bed.

"Oh god, why me?" I cried, "What did I do wrong?"

I started to think about how this baby was going to ruin my life. How will I raise it? What if I don't want it? What if my family disowns me? All those thoughts drifted away as I started to fall asleep. What one question still lingered in my mind though. How was I going to tell the father?
