Hey, BassDS again everyone. Now from what we learned from the Tokyo Game Show, looks like StarForce is staying around for a while longer. As a result, Capcom has made me delay my future plans of a fanfic series after StarForce. So what have I done in response and how is this fic involved? Simple, I create something in its place until that time comes for my other series plans roll out. As such, this is not an official fic of the Star Lovers series; also it won't be counted alongside SL1 and SL2. So enjoy my newest piece of work, and hopefully it can satisfy you until the real thing can be made.
A box fell from the bathroom sink, empting all of its contents as Sonia moved her back to the wall and slid down crying at what came out the box had said. She hadn't thought about it much when she was throwing up, believing it to just be a bad bug going around, but after it continued for weeks on end, that's when she decided it was probably something more and decided to make sure just in case. She pulled the small strip back to her eyes, seeing the words 'Positive' in blue on it.
"What am I going to do…should I tell Geo….no Sonia, bad idea…but what choice do I have… I'm carrying his child…" she said as she wiped the tears from her eyes as she slid a hand across her stomach.
"I can't let anyone know…not just yet…but…I don't know what to do at this point. I wonder how mom would take this if she were still around…" she said as she got up and went to her room, laying on her bed as her head turned to see a picture of her and Geo when they were at the Junior Year prom.
"Oh Geo…what are we going to do?" she said as she stared at the picture more
Echo Ridge High:
Geo arrived for his 6th period class as he scrambled to his seat, Bud and Zack right behind him. Things had changed over the years, Zack was the top student in the Computer Technology division of the school, and Bud was the best wrestler the school had, using his body size to his advantage of course. Geo always liked 6th period, it was the only class he was away from Luna, so he could spend more time with Sonia, but he had no idea why she had been absent recently.
"Geo, do you know where Sonia's at?" Zack asked.
"Wish I did. She hasn't been to school in days." He replied.
"I heard she caught something, some of the guys on the team have been getting sick recently." Bud added.
"You know I could always go snooping around, kid." came Mega's voice.
"Why do you always want to dig in other people's business?" Geo asked him.
"Well at least we know her." He barked back.
"Shh…class is starting. Be quiet Mega." Geo said.
"Forget this, I'm going eavesdropping." Mega said to himself.
"Sonia, is something the matter?" Lyra asked.
"Hmm…oh yeah, I'm fine Lyra." Sonia said talking softly.
"Are you sure? You've been this way ever since yesterday when you got back from the store. I worry about you Sonia." She said.
"I know you do, Lyra. This is just something that only humans can handle."
"Does this have to do with the reason you've been sick lately?" she asked, then got a nod as a response.
"Remember when I went with Geo to the Junior Prom?"
"Well, I have to admit…It was the best night of my life, and now…It just changed our lives completely." She said as Mega appeared near the house, keeping himself hidden from the two.
"I don't understand. How did it change your lives?" Lyra asked.
"Well…let's just say me and Geo did something to show how much we love each other…and now…well, let's just say I hope to be a good mother to my baby as my mom was to me." She said blushing slightly.
Mega, who was outside, grabbed his mouth with both of his hands, and shot up into space, then proceeded to laugh like a hyena. "Oh man…this is too good! I'm gonna die!! Bwhahaha!!!! Although this'll kill the kid more than me. Oh boy, wait til he gets this newsflash!" he said as he headed back to earth.
"Sonia…" Lyra said.
"Bingo. I'm pregnant." She said rubbing her stomach. "I'll have to tell him soon, or by the time my stomach grows, he'll think I've been going to an all-night buffet.
"I might not be an expert on being a mother, but there is someone who can help you." Lyra said.
"Hmm?" Sonia looked up and saw her pointing at Geo's house.
"That's actually a good idea, Lyra. This is her grandbaby after all. She…Hope did say she'd be there whenever I needed her…She's been like a second mother to me." She said getting up to get dressed.
Back at school:
"Mega, you've been awfully quiet. Something wrong?"
"No, I'm 100%. It's you that have something wrong soon." He said to himself quietly.
"Alright, spill it Mega, what did you do?"
"Nothing, I swear, I've just been sleeping." He said lying through his fangs.
"When I find out what you did, you're in for it. I'm keeping my eye on you."
"Wait til you find out what YOU did." He thought to himself grinning.
"I can do this…I have to…what am I saying! I can't do this! No…be strong Sonia, if you want Geo to be a part of this baby's life, you'll do it." She said to herself as she turned back to the door; raise her finger to hit the doorbell.
The door opened as Sonia looked to see a middle-aged woman with brown hair in the doorway.
"Sonia, why this is a surprise. Last I hear, Geo said you haven't been to school recently." Hope said moving so Sonia could walk in.
"I'm doing much better now, I just had an urgent problem that's just come up."
"Oh? It wouldn't happen to involve Geo would it?" Hope asked, then turned to see Sonia blushing.
"Yeah, in a way." She replied. "In a very big way."
Hope looked at Sonia, and studied her face, knowing that look in her eyes, seeing it once before in herself.
"Sonia, you know you can tell me anything. You don't have to hide anything from me. Anything you tell me won't escape my lips." She turned to the 18 year old.
"Well…" she started but then stopped, then looked Hope in the eyes, after that, all she could do was break down and cry in Hope's arms.
"It's Ok, dear…I know." She said consoling her.
"How…?" she asked looking up with tears in her eyes.
"The look on your face. I've had that same look before…when I told Kelvin about Geo."
"I've messed up Geo's life…and he doesn't even know…"
"Sonia, what happened with you and Geo…well, that's something I should keep my nose out of, but you two made a choice, and you always take risks, even in the smallest things. Geo has a right to know. He is this little one's dad after all. Sure, he might take it hard, but you'll have him by your side, and you have me to help you." She said smiling at her.
1 hour later:
"Wonder what mom's making for dinner?" Geo said as he walked home.
"Doesn't matter anymore." Mega said.
"What's that suppose to mean?"
"With what I know, you're already a prisoner." Mega laughed.
"You went eavesdropping didn't you!?" Geo said.
"Hey, I can't resist. I find it funny, but what me finding it and you finding it are two, very different things." Mega chuckled some more.
"Mom, I'm home." Geo said opening the door to see his mom in the kitchen.
"How was school today?" she asked not looking back.
"It was ok I guess, Sonia wasn't there again." He said putting his backpack down.
"Well she's doing better now. She's in your room resting. She needed to talk to you." She said.
"Hmm…my room? How long has she been here?" he asked.
"An hour or so. You better get up there; it's not nice keeping a lady waiting." Hope replied.
"Ok, I'll be down soon mom."
"I hope you're ready for this Geo. This is a big change in your life." She said to herself.
"Sonia, are you asleep?" Geo said entering his room to see Sonia on his bed.
"About time you got home." She said.
"How you been feeling?" he asked.
"I'm better now. It's nothing contagious." She said giving him a light kiss.
"I'm just glad you're ok." He said. "Everyone at school's been worried about you."
"I know…I've just…had a small problem…hey Geo… how much do you really love me?" she asked.
"Sonia, what kind of a stupid question is that? I love you no matter what comes between us."
"I've been scared…"
"Of what?" he asked her.
"Sonia, you'll never lose me, I promise. I love you too much to leave you." He replied. "Please…tell me what's wrong."
"You remember junior prom night?" she asked.
"Of course I do. How can I forget? "
"Well, remember when we came back home…and spent the evening with each other?"
"Sonia…I don't understand…"
Sonia moved her hand atop Geo's and held it lightly, and placed his palm on her stomach.
"Geo…I'm pregnant…" she said looking into his eyes.
"Geo, I know this is hard to understand and take in, but I still love you. I never want to lose you. I want you to be a part of my life, and the life of our baby. We can't imagine life without you. Geo, plea…" Sonia spoke as Geo grabbed her and held her close to him.
"I have to admit…I wasn't expecting this…but I have responsibilities now, Sonia, I'm telling the truth, I'll never leave you. I'm not about to be one of those dead-beat boyfriends that leave their girlfriends, what we have is true love, Sonia. And I wouldn't have it any other way. I love you, and now, I love our baby. Nothing can ever change that…"
"Let's be a family, and never be separated." He said.
"I'd love that…" she said pulling him into a passionate kiss.
And so ends chapter 1. I hope you enjoyed, I feel this focuses more on the reality of the present day for our world, as such, this is one of the most common events in our world today, so I figured, what the heck? Anyway, I'll get to work on Star Lovers 2, and get that finished up, then I'll work on this and SL:R simultaneously. So sit back, just know I have times where I can't think for chapter ideas, plus school being a constant thorn. R&R until next time everyone.
