A/N: Okay...this is my first Vampire Academy story. I have also written one other story for Twilight, but this was more fun than that. Please reveiw because I love hearing what people think about my writing, no matter how bad or good it may be.
"Okay Liss, what's going on," I asked one morning at breakfast after Christian had left for his first class. He had to be there early for something, I really didn't care what. He wasn't my favorite person in the world. Lissa looked at me with a surprised look on her face. I guess she thought she had kept whatever it was a secret from me. Like that was possible when I could feel what she felt and know what she knew. It was one of the many advantages of being shadow-kissed, except this time I didn't exactly know what she knew. I just knew that she knew something and wasn't telling me.
"Lissa, I've known something was up all weekend. I thought I'd let you tell me when you were ready, I just didn't think it would take you this long to tell me, and I'm out of distractions."
She looked nervous. "Can you meet me in my room this afternoon after class? I'll tell you then."
"You're going to make me wait all day! You aren't dying or anything, right? Or is your depression coming back?" I felt through the bond to get rid of anything depressing for her, not caring how awful it would feel when it was in me. I was a little shocked when I didn't find anything. I looked back at her, and she was rolling her eyes.
"No, I'm not dying and would you please stop checking me every thirty minutes for depression. I promised I'd tell you if it ever came back. Now stop guessing, this is something very serious." I thought she was going to go ahead and tell me, but the bell chose that time to ring. We both got up.
"Meet me in my room after your practice this afternoon." She told me. "I don't want you skipping practice so that you can find out sooner."
"Will Christian be there?" I asked warily, already knowing the answer.
But she surprised me. "Nope, just you and me," I looked at her for a second in disbelief. She rarely went anywhere without him. She saw my face and smiled. "We need to spend more time together. It's been awhile."
"Yeah," I agreed. "See you after practice!" And with that we both went our separate ways.
School was difficult. I couldn't concentrate on anything for long because my mind would wonder back to Lissa and what the big secret was. And after a few minutes of getting pinned down again and again during my practice with Dimitri, he finally asked what was on my mind.
"Lissa has a secret she plans on telling me after I'm done here and I can't help but wonder what it could be." I said to him.
He laughed. "You have a one-track mind, Roza. I'm surprised you didn't just skip practice today."
"Lissa told me not to. She probably would've made me wait longer if I had skipped."
"Well, since it would be pointless to keep knocking you down for the next ten minutes, I'll let you leave early today. But you're going to make it up tomorrow."
"Thank you so much! I swear I'd practice on a Saturday to know what this secret was. It's driving me insane!" I ran out the door with Dimitri still in the gym, laughing again.
It took me only a few minutes to get to the Moroi dorms and up to Lissa's room. She had one all to herself since her old roommate had turned Strigoi.
"Now will you tell me?" I asked as I ran in, out of breath.
"I guess. I really didn't want to know for sure, but it would probably be best to get it over with." She sighed.
"Now you're talking like Adrian. Is that what you had to tell me? You really are going mentally insane?" I teased.
"No, that's not it. I was hoping you had already figured it out. Have I forgot or missed anything lately?" she asked, a little sarcastically. I frowned. I was pretty sure I knew what she was talking about.
"Since we usually get them around the same time," I said slowly. "I guess I didn't realize I never felt yours this month. What's going on?"
"I'm not sure, I was going to see what you wanted to do." She glanced at me to see my reaction to this. Of course she wanted my opinion. I was the wild one who knew what to do in situations like this.
"Well we aren't going to go to the Infirmary yet. Not until we know for sure what's wrong with you. You don't by any chance have a pregnancy test do you?"
Lissa blushed and walked to her bathroom. She came back with three boxes in different colors. How did she get these? She handed them to me and I looked at them. She had somehow managed to get not one, but three pregnancy tests into this school.
"Just in case one was wrong or something," Lissa said. "I'll go try the first one. Will you go get me a glass of water so I can try the others too?"
"Sure. I'll be right back." I went down to the kitchen downstairs and filled a glass with water. I walked back upstairs and Lissa was sitting on her bed.
"It's in the sink," she said. "I have a timer set for three minutes. It should go off any second-"The timer cut her off. She looked at me frantically.
"I'll go and look." I said. She relaxed a little but still looked hysterical. I handed her the water and walked into the bathroom. In the sink was the stick. I looked down at it and staring back at me was a little plus sign. I sighed and ran my hands through my hair. This was unreal; I always expected to be reading my pregnancy test, not Lissa's.
