Chapter 2- Back to the Camdens
Sandy comes to the Camden house with Simon and unfortunately Rose:
Simon: Rose, Sandy- welcome to the Camden's.
Sandy: It's such a lovely house. I always loved coming here.
Rose: It's kind of small but it's so picturesque! It's just so homely.
Annie, Sam and David come out and greet the three
Annie: Welcome! Come on in! It's nice to see you all again!
Sandy: Good Morning Mrs. Camden!
Annie: It's so great to see you again- its been almost two years since I've last seen you! Rose. Nice to see you too (Annie said this with a slight grimace).
Rose: Oh, yes it's been such a long time, Mom. Is it okay if I call you that now?
Annie: Actually, I would rather you just call me Mrs. Camden or Annie. Well, lets come on in then. I've already prepared lunch- Grilled Cheese and Soup- Simon's favorite.
Rose: I never knew that!
Simon: There are lots of things that you don't know about me. And that's why we're getting married- to get to know each other more. So mom, when are Ruthie and Martin coming home?
Annie: Oh, they should be home around three. They will all be so surprised to see you guys!
Sandy: I'm sure they will be. (She glanced toward the microwave clock and read 2:30)
Annie, Simon, Sam, David, Sandy, and Rose ate their lunch together at the table rather fast. Annie was determined to get away from Rose as soon as possible and Rose was the same for Annie.
Sandy: I think I'm going to go for a little walk- just to stretch my legs a little.
Sandy was really waiting for Martin to come home where she would be able to tell him her big news. She was so nervous because she had really liked Martin and she didn't want him to hate her. 3:00 slowly ticked near and Sandy saw Martin's car pull around the corner. Thankfully he was alone so she could tell him privately. He opened his door and was quite shocked to see her. He really didn't say anything to her because she was the one who "forced" him to give up his virginity because of her seductiveness. He had promised himself that he would wait until marriage. Sandy decided that she would make the first move.
Sandy: Hey Martin.
Martin: Hey (not really meeting her eyes)
Sandy: So, it's been a long time since we've last seen each other- has it been three months now?
Martin: Yeah, I think so.
Sandy: Look, we need to talk. We really need to talk.
Martin: What about.
Sandy: Something big. Actually, something huge that's going to impact the rest of our lives. Could we go to the park or something- I always feel more relaxed when I'm there.
They walked to the park in silence. At the park:
Martin: So what did you want to talk about?
Sandy: Umm, well, it's kind of hard to say but…
Sandy: I'm pregnant with your child…
Martin: (dead silence for about 20 seconds) What…no, this can't be happening. This can't be. Just one time. Just once, and this is what I get. Are you positive it's mine?
Sandy: Absolutely- 100.
Martin: This can't happen to me- no. It's not mine- I can't have a child. I'm not going to let myself have a child.
Sandy: You can't just walk away from this!
Martin: I can, and I don't have anything to do with you! (He turns his back on her)
Sandy: Just please…wait! (She has tears running down her face)
Martin: No, I can't…
Sandy: (She walks off crying, He just waits there, face in his hands, bewildered)
