Hm, well not sure if I have put any of these in here before but there's a time for everything am I right? I first want to thank everyone for their generous responses and reviews, but I'm going to give you guys a challenge, let's see if we can get to 35 responses by the next time I update. Which shouldn't be too hard, seeing as how I am hitting a writer's block lately, which is why these last couple chapters have been shorter. But as usual, enjoy this chapter, and review. Let's see if we can reach that goal of 35. (:
Also please note, I do not own The Secret Life of the American Teenager or any characters associated with it.
John's Point of View
My phone vibrated in my pocket as I ran down the stairs two at a time, heading for the front door. I stopped and answered it, "Hello?"
"John, you mom wants you to bring Jennifer and Jake to the hospital with you."
"Alright, we'll be there in twenty minutes or so." I hung up my phone and stopped, trying to think of what class they might be in. Drawing a blank I ran to where Jennifer's locker was and found her class schedule stuck to the inside with a magnet, algebra. I ran back up the stairs to the end of the hallway and knocked on the door waiting for Mr. Matthews to come to the door.
"What can I help you with John?"
"I need Jennifer, we have to go to the hospital," I looked past him into the classroom to see Jennifer staring at the door confused, "Jennifer let's go, we have to get going." She grabbed her stuff and quickly made her way out the door, "Where's Jake?"
"I don't know earth science I think." I ran down the hall and grabbed Jake, Jennifer just making it to where the two of us were, not able to run in the shoes she was wearing.
"Take your shoes off, we have to go Jennifer." She bent over and held her shoes in her hands as we took off down the stairs towards the parking lot.
Amy's Point of View
I sucked in a breath as another contraction ripped through my body. Ricky hurried back across the room, grabbing my hand, "Sh, it will pass soon enough." And sure enough it passed within the next few minutes, leaving us waiting for the next one.
"I sure hope I can go through with this again Ricky, John's birth was bad enough."
"You can Amy, I know you can, I believe in you." He leaned over and gave me a quick kiss as a thought rolled into my mind.
"Ricky, do you think she will be born alright, she's a month early."
"She'll be fine Amy, stop worrying, everything will be alright."
"I guess you're right, I just want her to be alright." We both looked at the door as a soft knock rang through the wood. "Come in." John, Jennifer, and Jacob walked into the room just as another contraction came to life, this one being worse than the rest, "Agh."
"Whoa, what's going on Dad?"
"Calm down John, it's just a contraction."
"Right, well I think I'm just going to go wait out in the hall with these two."
John's Point of View
I paced back and forth in the hall waiting for my dad to come out with some news, any news. "John will you stop pacing, you're making me nervous." I looked over at Jacob, this being the first thing he had said since we got here.
"Yeah, sorry," I stopped across the room from them and slid down the wall until I was sitting on the floor, staring at my feet.
"I'm still pissed at you ya know." I looked up at Jennifer from where I sat, she was bringing that up right now.
"Do we really need to talk about that right now?"
"What am I missing here?" I looked over at Jacob who sat there with a confused expression apparent on his face.
"John decided he would like to make Olivia his next girlfriend to put in his book of girls."
"Jennifer, just get over it, you don't know anything about my life alright?"
She shrugged, "I know more than you think, nephew." I tried to put her sour tone she had put in the word nephew to the side.
"Maybe I am your nephew, but I'm still older than you, so get over it."
"Whatever John, just so you know, you can't have Olivia anyway, she has a boyfriend." I looked back up at her from where I was looking at my hands.
"What?" Just then my dad walked out of the room and I stood up as quickly as I could. "What happened is everything alright?"
"Your mom's fine, Tara's fine, speaking of Tara would you like to come meet your sister?" I nodded and walked into the room, my dad, Jennifer, and Jacob right behind me.
