I'm starting to use "-" Instead of '-'. It makes it easier for me. Continue :D
*The Carpenter Who Stole My Heart*
*Chapter 16: I'll Miss You, Too*
I sat on the clinic bed, waiting for Anissa to come back with my check-up report. My child isn't due for another four months, and this is my second check-up, the first being when I found out I was pregnant. Luke insisted that I get one, just incase anything was wrong with the baby or anything.
Looking down at my belly, I noticed I did get a bit bigger. It overwhelms me, but the problem is, no one knows about the baby except for Maya, Chase, Pascal, Kathy, Renee, Anissa, Irene, Jin, Pascal, Owen, Jake, Candace, Luna, Bo, and Colleen. Everyone else can't know, especially Mr. Hamilton, or I'm going to have to do the one thing Luke fears. Getting married.
I mean, I do love Luke, and he loves me, but we are not cut out for all of that marriage stuff. My plan was to wait until the baby was born, so then Luke and I could have more time to think about it...if he even wants to propose.
Anissa strolled in a few minutes later, with a perfectly white sheet of paper in her hands. I knew by the enormous smile on her face that my baby was ok, so I just waited for the good news.
"Ok, Angela. I have some good, and wonderful, news for you!" She clasped her hands in front of her chest.
A smile crept onto my face. "Great, let me hear it!"
She cleared her throat, and stood in a neat position. "You, Angela Monroe, are having...twins!
My once happy smile, turned into a huge hapless frown. "E-Excuse me...I'm having what?"
"Twins! A boy and a girl!" Anissa gave me a hug. "Oh, congratulations Angela!"
For some reason, I didn't feel so hot. My eyes began to flutter uncontrollably, and them I collapsed. Darkness took over me as the only words I heard were:
"Wow, she took it better than I thought she would've."
When I awoke, Jin and Anissa were with me. Jin handed me a glass of cold water, and to aspirins. After taking them both, I took a few deep breaths before talking.
"What do you mean I'm having twins? How is that even possible!" Worry and panic filled my voice.
Jin skimmed through his clip board. "It seems like we missed the second one in your last check-up. It's a good thing you came, too."
My eyes widened. "Good? What's so good about me having to push out two babies? That's not 'Good' at all!"
"Angela," Anissa sighed. "I think your over reacting."
"Pfft, over reacting? You try pushing something that big out!"
Anissa stood quiet, looking at Jin then at me. "W-Well..you see...a-about that.."
I sat in shock. "W-Wait Anissa...y-your not...?"
She nodded, smiling. "Yes, I'm a month pregnant. But don't tell anyone! Jin and I want to tell everyone when we're ready."
"Don't worry, my-" I paused and rubbed my belly. "Our lips are sealed."
Anissa squealed, giving me another hug. We all talked for a little, catching up a bit. Once we finished, I bid farewell to them, and left the clinic. The sun shinned in my eyes as I walked back to my house. Though, a distant scream stopped me in my tracks. The scream was very familar, like I've heard it before.
"Angela! A-Angela it's me!" The voice screamed.
I turned, trying to locate the voice, but I didn't see anyone. Spinning, not a person as in sight. The scream continue, and I was anxious to find out who it was. As I squinted, I saw a familiar auburn ponytail.
I ran up to the girl, who seemed to be coming from the Maple Lake District. "Oh my Goddess, Jill? Is that you?"
She came up and gave me a hug, her huge belly almost preventing her. "Yeah Angela, it's me. I've been looking everywhere for you!"
"Why? I could've sworn the last time you hated me?"
We let go of each other. "I never meant that." She sighed. "Mom told me to stay away from you. But I couldn't take it anymore."
I smiled. "I'm so glad you came. What brings you here anyway?"
Jill took a deep breath. "That's what I wanted to talk about. Mind if we go to your house?"
"Not at all."
She grabbed my hand and we walked up the path. We walked in silence, to be honest, it was kind of awkward. I unlocked my door, and lead Jill to my bedroom. We sat down, and continued our talk.
"So, Jill, about you being here..."
Jill nodded. "Well, I was wondering...if you can...maybe...let me stay with you? Just for awhile!"
I raised an eyebrow. "Why? What's wrong with Forget-Me-Not-Valley?"
"Mom kicked me out." Jill admitted. "And Skye...is a...thief."
"A thief? Jill are you serious? It isn't even April yet."
She nodded. "Yes, I'm serious. So please, Jill. We'll help out anyway we can!"
I gave it some thought. I will need more help around here, and I can't leave the only family I have in the streets. Standing up, I paced around the room.
"You can stay." I told her.
Jill sprung up and pulled me into another tight embrace. What's with all the hugs today? "Thanks so much, Jill! You won't regret it!"
I smirked. "I better not." Then something popped in my mind. "Where is that boyfriend of yours?"
Raising an eyebrow, Jill walked up to my door. "There's a note here."
My feet lead me toward my sister. "Let me see that." The note said:
I feel unamused, tonight, I shall borrow a thing or two from the dreadful Sundae Inn ~Phantom Skye
"Oh no!" Jill screamed. "Angela, we have to find him!"
Jill and I barged into the Sundae Inn, fearing something bad might happen. To our surprise, nothing bad seemed to have happened, but there was something weird. Almost everyone was at the Inn. Then there was Skye, smiling at the both of us. Jill ran up to Skye, pulling him into an embrace.
"Skye, did you do anything bad?" She asked.
He chuckled. "Yes I have. I've stolen the heart of such an angelic maiden."
Jill raised an eyebrow. "Y-You what?"
He immediately got down in one knee. Reaching into his pocket, I saw something blue. A blue feather? Whoa, he's going to propose to Jill? Too bad she isn't going to know...for another two minutes.
"Jill, my love, since I took my first glimpse of you I fell in love." He recited. "Do not scurry, for this is all new to me. Jill, will you do the honors...and be mine forever?"
I saw my sister's eyes water up. "Oh Skye, o-of course I'll marry you!"
In an insatnt she jumped on Skye, giving him a quick peck on the lips. A smile played on my lips, so he planned this all along. The letter, the get-up, the cliche words. I can't lie, it was really adorable. Before I got to comment, three people entered the Inn.
"Selena, still, I raised you better than that!" Sue yelled.
"Whatever, I never loved him in the first place! I can't cheat on my boyfriend," she pointed at me, "But she could be pregnant un-married?"
My eyes got wide as sweat started to poor down my forehead. Selena...that slut! She ruined everything...Gill, and Dale stepped out of the crowd.
"Angela Monroe," Dale began. "When were you planning on telling us?"
I rubbed the back of my neck. "W-Well, about that..."
Gill crossed his arms over his chest. "You do know you must be married in order to have a baby."
I thought I was going to drop dead any second. This is what I feared...what Luke and I BOTH feared.
"You guys don't have to worry." A voice next to me said. "I'll marry her."
Luke looked down at me a smile on his face. Yet, I wasn't happy. If Luke wanted to marry me because of this, then I don't want to marry him at all. I backed up and shook my head.
"Luke, I'm not going to marry you." I told him.
He was taken aback. "W-What do you mean you won't marry me? I love you!"
I almost felt tears fill my eyes. "I love you too, but if you're just going to marry me because of a baby don't bother."
Luke grabbed my hand, squeezing it tight. "C'mon, Angela..."
"No, I'm sorry." I took my hand back. "Look, I'll go back to Forget-Me-Not Valley. When I have the baby, we'll think abo-"
"No, no, no, no, no Angie! I want to be there when the baby is born! Don't you get it?"
As the crowd talked amongst themselves, Hamilton came out of the crowd also. He brushed off his suit, and walked up to us. At first, I was going to have a break-down. Then when I saw the smile on his face, I had a second thought.
"My, my. What a surprising twist this is." Hamilton chuckled. "This is a first, so...I'll let it slide."
"What?" Gill screamed. "But father, that's against our law!"
Mayor Hamilton simply shrugged. "I can see that, but I can also see that I'm the one who makes the laws. Am I right?"
Gill hung his head. "Yes, father."
Tears poured down my eyes as I put my arms around the mayor's neck. "Thank you so much, Hamilton!"
"Ahhh! Arghh! Ow, ow, ow!"
I turned around and saw Jill crying. Blood was dripping down her legs, and Jin came up to her. Anissa and I ran up to Jill, helping her stand without falling. As Jin checked her, I kind of figured out what happened.
"Oh my." Jin shook his head. "This isn't good. I think she, uh, lost her baby."
Jill started to go insane. "No! No I didn't! I can't, I-I..I...Arghhh!"
Skye, now on the verge of tears, was helping his fiancee calm down. Now I was crying, but for Jill. Irene walked up to everyone, and waved her arms frantically in the air.
"There's nothing to see here, so move along!" With that, everyone started to leave one by one. The only people that stood were Luke and Skye.
Anissa and Jin began to walk Jill to the door, but before they left, Jin realized something. "We can't help her here."
I stared at him. "What do you mean?"
"All of her paperwork is back at Forget-Me-Not Valley. We need those to see if there was anything wrong with the baby before."
"I'll go with you." Anissa volunteered.
Jin stopped her. "You can't, you're pregnant. You know how I feel about you traveling."
"Then I'll go!" I said.
"Angie," Luke warned. "What are you doing? You're pregnant, too."
I nodded. "I know, but she's the only family I have left! I can't let anything bad happen to her."
"OK," Jin agreed. "We must hurry, we can't waste anytime."
Luke grabbed my hand before I left. "Angie, you're seriously not leaving right? You can't go."
"I have too. I'm sorry Luke, really. But I don't have a choice."
"I'm going to miss you, Angie. Please don't go! I mean, the baby." I saw Luke's eyes water up.
I wiped a tear from my cheek. "You mean babies."
"We're having twins Luke. A boy and a girl."
His eyes widened. "That's even worse Angie! Come on..."
I shook my head. "I'm so sorry Luke. I'm really going to miss you, Luke."
"I'll miss you, too. More than you can imagine."
I brought my lips to Luke's as we embraced. His lips moving simultaneously with mine sent shivers down my spine. I wanted to stay in this position forever, but I couldn't. My sister needs my help now...and I need to be there for here.
A/N: The whole 'You need to be married before having a baby' was some crazy idea I thought of. I will seriously start updating soon, also based on reviews. Sooo please review!
