Soon-to-be dad: no
I frowned. I wanted my dang gummy worms.
I walked into mine and Fang's room, and I sat in his lap. He just stared at me.
"No gummy worms," he said firmly. I kissed him.
pleaded. He shook his head. "I'll just get them myself."
"Max, no!" he exclaimed. I snapped and there was a big bowlful of gummy worms.
"I won't go crazy," I promised before walking back into my study room. It wasn't really a study. It was more of a place where I could go to relax. And people knew if the door was shut not to come in.
I shut the door, and I sat on the couch. I stretched my legs out.

dad: ALL OF THEM?!
GUMMYWORMS!!: yeah. Well, I'm gonna go. Family meeting time. EVERYONE
I signed off, and I walked down to the living room. Everyone in the Flock walked down, and Fang was frowning. Everyone else was staring at me.
"I have an announcement!" I shouted.
All the parents walked in. Not just mine and Fang's, but everyone's.
I started twiddling
my thumbs, and Fang slapped his hand on his forehead. "Never
"But—" I was trying to protest.
"What's the announcement?" Mom asked.
"You're going to love me no matter what, right?" I tested.
"Uh…yeah. Oh God. You're married," she accused.
"No," I said honestly. "Engaged. Not married. But that's not what we're discussing here!"
"What?" Ella shrieked.
"You're just keeping all kinds of secrets from us, aren't you?" Gazzy asked angrily.
Fang looked over at me. "Are you going to say it or not?"
"You could," I reminded him.
"You're making the announcement," he pointed out.
"But it's not just my—"
"Just say it!" Nudge interrupted.
"This is what happens when you give Max a bowl full of gummy worms," Iggy said.
"I know!" Fang
exclaimed. "She wouldn't listen to me."
"Max," Annie said nervously. "Please don't tell me it's what I think it is."
Are you pregnant?
I looked at her. "Do you want the truth?"
"The truth would be nice," she said softly.
"I can't give you both," I said, looking down. I didn't know a person's eyes could open as wide as hers did.
"What?" Nudge's mom, Tiffany, asked.
"I'm gonna be an aunt!" Angel squealed.
"Gazzy got someone pregnant?" Mom exclaimed, obviously shocked.
"What?" he shouted. "I didn't even know I slept with someone!"
"Yeah," I said
while nodding. "Ella."
"What?" Mom, Gazzy, and Ella all exclaimed in unison.
Fang said. "She's kidding."
"It's not Ella," I started.
"It's her," Fang finished.
Well, that went over well. Not really. Mom was shocked, the Flock knew, and everyone elsem speechless.
I was laying on the couch with none other than Fang himself. His arms were around my waist, and he was behind me. We were watching the news.
"Latest news," the reporter said. "Lissa Smithson and Sam White were killed yesterday in the DC area."
I looked up at Fang, and he slightly shrugged. "That was their last names," he said with a slight grin.
I grinned back and looked back at the TV. "A bizarre explosion case by unknown reasons killed them. They were walking in a back alley, and then BOOM!"
"A bizarre explosion," I said softly.
"Should we check it out?" he asked eagerly.
I nodded. "Let's."
