DISCLAIMER: see chapter 1
Jeff stood in his dressing room, pacing back and forth, waiting for Jamie to answer her phone. Just as he was about to hang up she answered. "What do you want?"
"Jamie, what the fuck did you tell Jordan?"
"What do you mean, what did I tell Jordan?" she asked snottily, "I don't know anyone named Jordan."
"Bullshit. You know exactly who I'm talking about. What did you say to her?"
"Oh, you mean the stupid little bitch who called here?" Jamie said, "I just told her the truth. I told her about how we met, how as soon as I found out I was pregnant that you left, that I have raised Samantha all by myself with you only taking her when you feel like it."
"You know that's not the truth." Jeff interrupted. "It was you who decided everything and left me out of it until she was almost here. It was you who didn't want me around her and only when you felt like I should see her."
"I am not having this argument with you." Jamie stated. "I told her the truth. She even had the balls to call me a liar about the whole thing, but it's whatever. I gotta go. Samantha is trying to get into something. Goodbye."
Jeff looked down at his cell phone in puzzlement. 'If she acted like she believed it, why would she call Jamie a liar?' he thought.
Jordan sat in her hotel room, tears streaming down her face as she told her grandmother what had happened. "And then I left." She said softly.
"Well honey," her grandmother started, "I think you both were in the wrong here. He shouldn't have said that to you and you shouldn't have said that to him. You're both hurting, anyone can tell that, but you shouldn't stoop to teenagers' level."
"I know grandma," Jordan said, "But this whole thing started off as a lie. At least, that's how I see it."
"I don't think it did. I think that he omitted the information about his daughter for a reason. I don't think it was to hurt you, but to protect her." Jordan's grandmother asked, "If you had a child before you met Jeff, would you have told him immediately, or waited until you were sure your relationship would work out?"
Jordan thought about her grandmother's question for the next few weeks, as she traveled with her dad. It did bother her that her answer changed multiple times a day, and she wanted to blame it on her hormones, but knew she couldn't. She also knew what she had to do. She just hoped that she wasn't going to make a huge mistake while doing it.
That's why she was standing outside Jeff's hotel room, bracing herself for the talk she knew that they needed to have. Raising her hand, she knocked.
"Hello." Jeff said, "How can I help you?"
"I wanted to come by and apologize for my behavior at Wrestlemania. It was uncalled for."
"I wanted to apologize too." Jeff asked, "Would you like to come in?"
"Thanks." Jordan walked into the room. Jeff gestured for her to have a seat on the bed, which she did. "There's a whole lot more that I need to apologize for. I treated you like shit and for that I am sorry. I should have never asked my friends to check on you, and I shouldn't have blown up and acted like a bitch."
"I should have told you sooner about Samantha." Jeff conceded. "That was my mistake. If I could go back and do it all over again, I would have told you sooner."
"My grandma made me realize something." Jordan said, "She asked me a question and it made me think. She asked me if I had a child before I met you would I have told you when I first met you, or waited and I realized that I would have waited. I understand now where you were coming from. I wouldn't want my child to be around someone if I wasn't sure where it was going. It took me a while to understand it, and I do respect your decision to keep it to yourself until you felt the time was right."
Jeff nodded. "Thank you. That means a lot to me."
"Do you think we'll be okay?" Jordan asked, after a few minutes of comfortable silence. "After all, we'll be around each other for the foreseeable future." She rubbed her stomach.
"Honestly, I don't know Jo." Jeff said. "I'd like to think so, but I don't know."
Jordan nodded, before exclaiming, "Oh! I almost forgot." She reached into her pocket and pulled out an envelope. "These are for you."
Jeff took the offered envelope. "What is it?"
"Just something that you need to see."
Jeff raised an eyebrow at her before opening the envelope. What he saw shocked him. "Is this-"
"Yeah." Jordan nodded, scooting closer. "That's the head, and that is a little arm, and a leg."
"Do you know the sex yet?"
"Not yet." She said. "I told them I didn't want to know yet."
Jeff looked over at her. "Thank you for showing these to me."
"There yours to keep." She said as he tried to hand the sonogram pictures back. "I had them make two copies of each photo. One for me and one for you."
"Thank you." Jeff laid the envelope down on the bed.
"If you want, you can come with me to the next appointment."
"I'd like that."
"Okay." Jordan stood up. "Well, I better be leaving. I have to get to the airport. My sister's graduation is next week, and I told her I would be there."
Jeff stood as well and walked Jordan to the door. "Thank you for coming by, and for the pictures."
Jordan smiled and nodded as she opened the door. "Thank you for not slamming the door in my face. I would have deserved that and not your kindness. I'll call you with the date and time of my next appointment."
-One Week Later-
"Congratulations!" Jordan hugged Sofia tightly.
"Thanks. I'm just glad you made it."
"I wouldn't have missed this for the world."
Jordan shrugged. "I don't know. I haven't talked to her since the last time I was here. She's probably avoiding me."
"Probably." Sofia sighed, before shaking her head. "Oh well, it's her loss if she doesn't show up for pictures." She grabbed Jordan's hand. "Come on, I want to introduce you to my boyfriend."
"Are you still with Roger then?"
"Yeah," She smiled. "He's the sweetest person in the world Jo." Sofia continued to fill Jordan in on him before they met up with Roger and his parents. "Roger, this is my sister Jordan. Jordan, this is the wonderful man I was telling you about, Roger."
"It's nice to meet you Roger." Jordan took the offered hand.
"Likewise. Your sister has told me a lot about you." Roger then introduced his parents as Josh and Cynthia appeared. "There you are Sofia." Cynthia said, elbowing her way between her and Jordan. Jordan just rolled her eyes and turned to her brother. "Hey Joshie."
"I said don't call me that." He smiled.
"You know you love it." She said. "Hey, what's wrong? Where's Gracie?"
"She broke up with me." He said. "I think it was the distance between schools. We're still friends though."
"I'm sorry to hear that. Why didn't you tell me sooner?" Jordan hugged her brother. "And where is Ashlyn?"
"She's with grandma at home, and I didn't tell you because I didn't want to stress you out right now." He glanced down at her stomach.
"Ah, ok." She said before she heard her mother yell, "YOU'RE PREGNANT!"
Jeff tossed his bag onto his couch with a sigh. One month off didn't seem like a long time to some, but to him, it was a long time in coming. After being attacked by his dogs, he thanked his friend who stayed to watch them before letting them run outside to play. He was happy to be home. He wasn't happy, however, when Jamie appeared alone. "What's the meaning of this shit?" she demanded, waving papers in front of her.
"Something that should have been done a long time ago." Jeff said, "Now kindly get off my property."
"You can't do this."
"Well, I did." Jeff got all his dogs back inside before facing her.
"You won't win. She's my daughter."
"She's mine too, even if you don't want her to be."
"You can't get full custody." Jamie said. "You work too much and are never around. At least with me she has a stable environment."
"Yeah, stable enough that she's always sick or hurt when she's with you."
"She's three! Of course she's gonna get bumps and bruises. She's also gonna get sick, especially while being in preschool."
"Look, talk to my lawyer about it. I have nothing else to say to you." Jeff said as he turned to go inside.
"Let me guess, it's that little bitch that's making you do this? All spur of the moment."
"Actually, Jordan doesn't know anything about it yet." Jeff opened the door. "And no, it's not a 'spur of the moment' thing. It's been a long time coming. I'm not going to let you keep me away from Samantha any more. I'll see you in court."
Jordan rubbed her temples as she sat in her grandmother's kitchen. After the previous day's events, she just wanted some peace and quiet. Apparently, God wasn't listening to her.
"I can't believe you would be so goddamn stupid." Cynthia said. "How could you get knocked up by a wrestler? And you're not going to get married?"
"For the last time mom, I'm pretty sure you know how I got knocked up and no, we're not going to get married. In fact, we aren't even seeing each other anymore."
"You should be married before having a child."
"Cynthia," Jordan's grandmother said, "You weren't married when you had her. It's her decision and I am tired of hearing this argument. Neither of you will change your minds so just give it up."
Jordan was saved by her cell phone ringing. "Thank God." She said as she flipped it open. "Hello."
"Hey Jeff, what's up?"
"I just wanted to let you know that you might have to travel to North Carolina sometime within the next few weeks."
"Why? What's going on?"
"Well," Jeff said, "I'm taking Jamie to court."
"For custody of Samantha."
A/N: So, was it worth the wait? I hope it was. Please read and review. Chapter 16 should be up within the week.
