Before you say anything there are some things that I need to say. I can t stand here and pretend that I know how you feel because honestly I can't. All I can say is that I am sorry but I did what I thought was best for everyone involved"
Baby you don't have to go through all of this.. You really don't." Johnny spoke point blank.
She sighs softly. "Yes I do." She nods continuing. "He set me up with this job, got me a place to live and from that point my life changed. He even offered to say he was her dad and marry me all so my parents didn't think any less of me. For the longest time I didn't tell them the truth. I think deep down my mom and my sister knew it but they never said a word. My dad just couldn't understand it all I guess. But when he offered it I couldn't do it. All of a sudden my family came around and we made it through. Johnny I wanted to tell you about her and I even called one day.. And no it was not me trying to get out of telling you the truth. When you left me my entire world fell apart and then a few weeks later I found out I was pregnant. I was scared and I had no idea what I was going to do."
Johnny watched her for a minute and went to cut in but she quickly stopped him.
"No I need to finish. I was starting at Holyoke and then a couple weeks I found out about the baby I got this amazing offer to intern overseas. So I figured if I took it I could figure out everything in that time frame. But when I got there I was sick, really sick. My boss picked up on what was going on quickly and he was great. He helped me out a lot and by time she was born I got the job with the company I work for today."
I guess it was the day of your wedding. Penny answered the phone and said you were busy. I made up some story about how I was looking to find out about dance lessons for my daughter. She let me know all I need to hear, you weren't taking any new students for new classes for the next three weeks. You were getting married that day and were heading out for your honeymoon." She slowly wiped away the tears that had fallen on her face and took a deep breath getting her composure back. "You might not understand why I kept you in the dark but I did what was best. All of this happened for a reason and maybe I don't know what that reason is right now but it happened. I can't take that back. I wish I could but I just can't and I can't keep breathing myself up over it. And I am really sorry and if you never want to speak to me ever again I understand that but I don't want you to take it out on her. She deserves to have a father. She really does. So don't punish her for my mistakes; for the things that I did." She sighs a bit. "And that is really all I needed to say to you."
Johnny paced around for a minute looking at her. "I know that you didn't do it to spite me or hurt me. I just wish that you would have told me. I wish that I could have had the chance to know her. I missed seeing her first step, her first words. I miss the first days of school and graduation. I missed seeing her go to the prom and driving for the first time. I missed out on these milestones in her life and I know you think that you were doing the right thing, but that is what hurts so much. You knew that I would have been there... "
Baby looked at him. "Yeah you would dropped your entire life to be with someone that you didn't love just because you knoc..." She started to say before he interupted.
"How could you ever say that to me? You know that is not like that. It would not have been like that..I can't believe you would think that. I loved you.. You did what you had to do and I did what I had to do. I was given a choice and I tried to do what was right for you. I tried and look what it cost me. It cost me everything that I ever loved.. everything that I ever cared about and a daughter that I never knew existed.
