Amy Juergans was in a bad mood. Her sister was being a bitch, her dad was pissed at her, and John had kept her up all night. As if that wasn't bad enough, Ben was still pestering her about sex while being evasive about something. It didn't help that the other day when she asked John where Momma was, that he waved at Adrian. She felt horrible about it and now she had to prepare to go to school, and she was exhausted. She didn't want to deal with anyone today, but knew if she didn't go to school… Someone would bitch about it. She sighed as she quickly finished dressing and grabbed John and his bag.
She walked out to her mom's car and placed John in his car seat and set her backpack, and his diaper bag down near him. She sat in the front seat and stared out the window letting out a yawn. When they got to the Church, she took John and his bag in and signed him in. She gave him a quick kiss to the forehead. "Mommy loves you," She told him as she smiled, she walked away and headed towards her mom's car. The minute she got to school, she walked in to the building and went to her locker trying her hardest not to just fall over. She closed her eyes trying to wake herself up a little bit, and when she opened them she let out a groan. Jack and Grace were making out by Jack's locker, Adrian and Ricky were making out in another corner… And she was stuck with the over possessive, sex obsessed, asshole. Ben had been great, until he started talking sex.
"Hey Amy," She let out another groan as she heard Ben's voice. Amy looked up at him to see him staring at her chest. She glared and spoke in a venomous tone as Alice and Henry walked up.
"My face is up here, Ben," His gaze immediately went to her face, and she noticed his face get red. "Look, I'm too tired to deal with your shit right now. So, I'm going to go to class. And you're going to leave me alone," Ben stared at her wide-eyed as she walked the other way. Amy walked into class and took a seat as Ben, Henry, Alice, and Madison walked in to take their seats. About half way through class, Amy's phone, which she forgot to put on silent started ringing loudly. She let out an aggravated sigh as she pulled it out and looked at the ID. Most people had the common sense not to call her in the middle of a school day. She frowned to herself as she realized it was John's nursery calling. And ignoring Mr. Henderson's words, answered the phone. "Hello?"
"Is this Amy?" Asked a voice, she recognized as the front receptionist's voice.
"Yeah. What's wrong," Most of the time, if anything was wrong the nursery would call home first… And probably get her mother or father, which would make calling her unnecessary. But today, her Mother and Robby had their first appointment, and had to get his birth certificate filled out. And her father was at work.
"It's John. He's sick and we were wondering if you could come pick him up right now. We don't want to risk the other children getting sick," She stated in a soft, caring tone. Amy sighed softly and checked the clock. It wasn't even halfway through her first period.
"Yeah, I should be there with in a half hour or so," Amy stated as she hung up her phone. She noticed Grace, Ricky and Adrian's eyes on her as Ben perked up and decided to make an offer.
"I could take you," He offered happily. Amy growled before snapping at him.
"This doesn't concern you Ben. So thanks but no thanks," She grabbed her bag and looked up as Mr. Henderson spoke angrily.
"This will count as a cut. And you as well as I know this class is a requirement to graduate," Amy nodded as she looked around her Health class. Most students took it as sophomores or juniors, which explained why Grace, Adrian, and Ricky were in her class.
"My mom will call me out," She explained as she headed for the door, she walked out the door and headed for the front doors cursing the fact that she'd have to walk to the church and then home. Amy sent her mother a text explaining what was happening and to please call her out of school as she made her way to the front office to sign herself out. After that she made her way to the church to pick up John. "Hi John, how ya feeling buddy," She asked with a soft sigh as he looked up at her with a miserable look on his face. When he saw her, his face lit up slightly. She smiled and picked him up before signing him out and grabbing his things. She took about half an hour to walk home and took John's temperature. Amy was relieved to see his fever was only at ninety nine and not something higher.
She fed him some milk and laid him in his bassinet as her mom came home with Robby. "How's John feeling?" Was the first words out of her mom's mouth. Amy smiled weakly as she looked up.
"I think he feels better," She stated as she stretched. "He hasn't thrown up or anything, and he's sleeping now. His fever wasn't high," Anne nodded as Amy smiled tiredly. "I'm going to go nap… I'm exhausted. You'll call me out of school for today?" She asked hopefully. Anne nodded and spoke up.
"But you need to babysit Robby with John tonight, Ashley is going to hang out with Griffin and your father and I am going out," Amy sighed but nodded in agreement again. What else could she really do? Her mom smiled at her before shooing her off to nap. She turned the monitor up a bit so she'd be able to hear both babies and curled up on her bed for a nap. About half an hour later, she awoke to John crying and went to try and calm him down. After a little bit of rocking and consoling, she figured he might be hungry, so she started towards the kitchen to make his bottle. As she walked through the living room, she groaned as she noticed Ricky and Adrian making out in her dad's old kitchen.
"Johnny, I'm not sure how much of this I can take," She whispered to him softly as Adrian caught her eye and smirked. Amy rolled her eyes and walked into the kitchen to find Ben talking with her mother excitedly. She let out a sigh and reluctantly returned his eager kiss when he walked over to her. "Nice to see you too, Ben," She stated somewhat annoyed. "Now if you don't mind, I came in here to feed John," Ben nodded as Anne and George said goodbye.
"So with your parents gone," Ben started with a suggestive look in his eyes. Amy glared as she tested John's bottle on her arm. She heard a knock and picked up John before heading towards the front door. When she opened the door, Ricky and Adrian stood there. Adrian looked annoyed, as John held onto Amy lightly and smiled at Ricky. Amy frowned as Adrian made a snide remark.
"You look tired, Amy," She smirked at Amy. Amy just growled in response. She groaned quietly when she heard Ben try and reason with her.
"You can't blame me for trying Amy. This is probably one of the only times everyone's going to be out of the house," He stated.
"Ben. Drop it. Adrian… Get out," Amy stated as the phone rang. She checked caller ID before answering it and speaking to Ashley. "Hey Ash, what's up?" Ashley then went on to tell her she wouldn't be home for another hour or so. "It's fine. I've got everything under control. Robby's sleeping, and John's gonna play with his daddy, while I consider killing Ben. See you when you get home," Amy stated as she hung the phone up and handed Johnny to Ricky. "I wasn't kidding. You wanna be rude to me, that's fine. But this is my house. And I don't want you here," Amy stated towards Adrian before sending a pointed look towards Ricky.
Ricky immediately glared towards Adrian who threw her hands up and stormed out of the house. "Thank you," Amy told Ricky tiredly before flopping on the couch as Ben came in. She could feel the tension in the air, she rubbed at her temples and let out a frustrated sigh. This was going to be a long night.
