It had been at least four weeks since Jackson and Melissa made up. Everything was going fine again. Melissa and Abby were out getting food, when it happened. A wave a strong nausea passed through Melissa, and she dropped the fruit she was holding to barf in the nearby bush. Abby held her hair out of her eyes as she released her stomach.
"Are you okay, Mel?" Abby asked, after Melissa was done. She wiped her mouth with her shirt, and nodded. They headed back to camp with the food they had already gotten. "Mel, you don't look so good. Lay down for awhile." Melissa was about to object, but she gave in and laid in her sleeping bag. Abby smiled, heading back into the jungle to get more fruit.
Jackson and Nathan were working on a new raft. It would be another message in a bottle, but this time, with Taylor's mirror on it.
Daley headed into the tent after talking to Abby to make sure Melissa was alright. She wasn't in there though. Daley went back outside the tent and saw Melissa hunched over a bush.
"What's wrong?" Lex and London asked in unison, coming up from the beach. Melissa was still hurling, with Daley holding her hair with a disgusted expression. Eric came up with some jugs of water, noticing the girls immediately.
"What's the matter with Mel?" He asked, setting the water down and running over to them. Nathan, Taylor, Jory, Abby, and Jackson soon joined in the little group.
"She's been vomiting all day." Daley explained, letting Jackson take her hair. He rubbed her back softly, as she continued puking. Melissa finally finished, and Lex gave her some water. She wiped off her face, and splashed water on it.
"I don't know what's wrong with me. I've been hunched over all day, puking my guts out. I've been tired all day, and my breasts are sore!" Melissa whined, leaning into Jackson's embrace. Daley gasped, obviously knowing something.
"Kids, go and play or something." Daley shooed them off. "Melissa, have you had your period this month?" Melissa blushed, but shook her head no. Suddenly, Abby, Jory, and Taylor seemed to catch on, but the others were clueless.
"What? Tell me! Why am I sick?" Melissa begged Daley, almost dropping to her knees. Daley took a deep breath before speaking.
"Melissa, your pregnant. Your showing all the signs and symptoms. Congratulations." Daley said. Melissa passed out cold from shock, landing firmly in Jackson's arms. Everyone looked to Jackson, seeing what his reaction was.
"Well, I guess this is what happens when you have sex." He sighed, sitting down on the sand with Melissa in his lap. He placed his hand on her stomach, which was showing a very, very, very slight bump. "It's hard to believe that there is a life in there." He murmured.
"Are you guys going to keep the baby?" Abby asked, giving Jackson a hopeful look. He looked down at Melissa.
"Probably, but I'll have to discuss it with Mel." He said, kissing Melissa's forehead.
The next day
Melissa awoke in the girls tent, but Jackson was awake next to her. He gave her a small smile. She smiled back, before going to vomit. Jackson laughed quietly when she returned. He'd have to get used to that.
"So, do you want to keep the baby?" He asked, holding Melissa in his arms. She sighed, going into thought.
"Of course. And even if I did want an abortion, how would that one work here on paradise island?" She laughed, placing her hand on her stomach.
"This should be interesting." Jackson said, kissing her hair softly.
Sorry for not updating sooner. I'm 27 weeks pregnant, and always busy. I'm working on updating NWYT, so look out for that.
