Chapter 1: Shocking News
This is my second Creddie stories, I may have fallen into a cliche Creddie trap but unlike most pregnant Carly stories I will be making this as cheerful as possible.
Disclaimer: I don't own iCarly, Dan Schnieder does.
I couldn't believe I was about to do this, this was the most embarrassing thing I had ever thought about doing, I couldn't think of how to say what I wanted to say to Spencer. Luckily he seemed to have that unusual sixth sense older siblings have, he knew something was wrong. I was sitting at the table eating breakfast while trying to think about how to tell Spencer what I wanted to tell him. Luckily at that point he walked away from the fridge where he was searching for something to eat and walked over to the table; he looked at me for a second before speaking...
"Something on your mind kiddo?"
"You wanna talk about it?"
I deliberated for a moment and then finally decided to speak...
"Well; it's kind of embarrassing but...Um; Spence, I think I should tell you...I...I'm no longer..."
I could see Spencer getting frustrated but it was just too embarrassing to say. He finally got fed up waiting for my answer...
"You're no longer what Carly?"
I took a deep breath and answered, just as Spencer took a sip from his coffee...
"I'm no longer a virgin".
I felt my face go red as Spencer did a spit-take. He stared at me for a minute, spluttering and trying to speak when finally he found his voice...
"W-what, you're not...How could...When did...Who!"
I sighed and decided to tell Spencer the whole story.
I thought for a moment and then spoke...
"Well, you know how...after the dance..."
Spencer nodded slowly. I then remembered that Spencer had been home that night...
"Well, me and Freddie..."
"Wait; wait; so you and Freddie actually 'did it' on the night of the dance, I was here, how could I not have heard...
I felt myself go even redder as I struggled to explain...
"We...tried not to wake you or make too much noise".
Spencer sighed and put a hand to his forehead and there was an awkward silence before he finally spoke again.
"Okay, I'm still trying to get my head around the fact that it was you and Freddie; did something happen at the dance?"
"Austin was a total jerk and I practically chased him out and the girl who was with Freddie also disappeared. We danced and then we came back here and that's when we...you know".
"And you were okay with that..."
"It was my idea".
I could see Spencer trying to take it all in. It had been six weeks since Freddie and I had taken our relationship further and we had been dating for a while now too but there was still one thing bothering me; that was the embarrassing thing I had to talk to Spencer about...
"Okay, why are you telling me this?"
I took a deep breath and responded...
"Well...I've been feeling...Weird recently."
I swallowed and finally forced the words out.
"Well I've...I've...missed my period".
Spencer immediately grew serious.
"Carly, are you saying…"
"I don't know, I...don't know".
Spencer calmed down slightly.
"Okay, but I'm still having a serious conversation with Freddie".
"I won't hurt him Carls. So why don't you know yet?"
I stared at him incredulously...
"It's humiliating; I can't just walk into a pharmacy and ask for a pregnancy test can I?"
"Good point. If you want, I could...um, go and buy a test for you".
I looked up, Spencer was willing to help me. I agreed and he headed off. Half an hour later I was upstairs waiting for the result when I heard a knock on the front door and heard Freddie's voice, crap, now what; how could I possibly explain this to him.
I walked into apartment 8-C and I smiled when I saw Spencer sitting on the couch.
"Hey what's up?"
To my surprise he didn't respond with his usual cheerfulness, instead he looked up at me, a very serious look in his eyes. Uh-oh, something's not right here. There was silence for about a minute before Spencer spoke.
"Freddie, sit down".
He gestured to the couch, I hesitated, Spencer was acting weird and I wasn't sure what was going on.
"Just sit down Freddie; we need to talk, this is important".
I sat down. Now I was really nervous. Spencer sighed and seemed to be lost in thought before finally he spoke again.
"Carly told me something very interesting about half an hour ago".
I didn't like the way this conversation was headed.
"What are you…?"
"She told me about, what happened after the dance six weeks ago".
I blushed at the memory and immediately felt panic. Spencer knew about Carly and I making love. That story about older brothers always finding out who their younger sisters were sleeping with was true after all; not good, how could I possibly explain this. To my surprise Spencer didn't seem to be making any threats against my life, in fact he laughed.
"God the look on your face, relax, I'm not angry okay, although there is something else".
I was getting more nervous now, what else could Spencer have to say…
"Let's just say I hope to God you guys used protection that night".
I swallowed, I couldn't remember if we had, what if we hadn't used protection, what if Carly was pregnant. As if reading my thoughts and sensing my worry Spencer tried to reassure me.
"Look, relax I know that if you didn't use protection and Carly is…pregnant, then I've got your back okay, I'll help you guys out".
"Yeah but…it's not up to me about the baby, that's really Carly's decision and…"
"Oh come on, I thought you knew her better than that".
I was confused.
"What do you mean?"
"If Carly is pregnant do you think she would abort the baby, she's morally opposed to abortion. As far as Carly's concerned abortion is…basically murder".
I nodded, that made sense. Well whatever the answer was I knew I would stick with Carly no matter what.
Just then a scream from upstairs caught our attention and we both ran up to Carly's bedroom. We found her sitting on the bed, apparently in shock so I ran over to her, Spencer was right behind me.
In response she held out her hand and I took one glance at the pregnancy test and found the answer, positive; she was pregnant and I was the father. I turned to look at Spencer, his expression was sympathetic and understanding then he walked back to the door.
"I'll let you guys have some alone time to talk, shout if you need me".
He then left the room. I turned my attention back to Carly. I sat down on the bed next to her and, gently taking the test from her hand and placing it on her bedside table I embraced her, she wrapped her arms around me and then spoke.
"Freddie I'm sorry".
I found myself confused once again.
"Sorry, for what?"
"Think about it, we're fifteen and, I'm pregnant with your baby. I've practically tore both our lives apart".
I shook my head.
"That's not true Carls, you are my life. I guess the only problem we have now is…
She pulled away glaring at me.
"I'm not having an abortion, it's murder!"
"I wasn't gonna say that; Spencer already told me you wouldn't consider it".
She calmed down and fell into my arms again. I paused for a moment before speaking again.
"As I was gonna say, the only problem we have is how we're gonna tell the people who…you know, need to know".
"Yeah, I have to tell Dad, I mean, yeah he's overseas but he needs to know".
"Yeah, and we've gotta tell Mom, she is gonna freak".
Carly pulled back again, this time however she was calmer. She sat on the edge of her bed lost in thought.
"Spencer already knows and he's gonna help us, that's one less thing to worry about."
I then remembered.
"Carly; we're gonna have to tell Sam".
"Don't worry; I won't let her hurt you, this is kinda my fault anyway, I was the one who convinced you to take it further".
I managed a small smile before we were serious again.
Cary thought for a moment and then realised another problem.
"Freddie, what about school, I mean, eventually all the signs are gonna show and then it'll be all over the school".
"I don't know, but right now I think we should worry about telling Sam, my Mom and your Dad".
Carly then smiled and leaned into me and I put my arm around her smiling. I knew that together we would get through this.
I opened the front door to Carly's apartment, just walking in as usual as I practically lived here and I knew nobody would complain, I then noticed something was wrong, normally Carly would either be in the kitchen or on the couch working on homework or something but the living room was deserted, that was until Spencer came downstairs. He looked deep in thought…
I laughed as he jumped as though electrocuted, he then saw it was me and relaxed.
"Yeah…uh; where's Carls?"
"Um…she's upstairs. Listen, you might wanna leave her for a couple of minutes".
I blinked confused.
"What; is she alright".
Spencer shook his head as he flopped down on the couch and turned on the T.V. then sighed and spoke.
"Well I gotta go help her then".
Spencer again shook his head.
"Freddie's already up there, I think it's best to leave the two of them just now".
I was still confused. Something was going on and Spencer wasn't telling me anything.
"What are you hiding Spence, what are Carls and the dork talking about?"
"It's not my place to say Sam, sorry".
I growled in frustration and ignoring Spencer's repeated insistence that I don't go upstairs I ran up to Carly's room.
I barged into Carly's room and found her sitting on her bed with Freddie. Carly looked as if she had been crying and now they both looked scared.
"Carls; what's going on".
I noticed Freddie had his arm around her and they both seemed to have just finished some sort of conversation. Carly didn't seem to be able to answer me, instead she just pointed to her beside table. I walked over and then saw it; a pregnancy test that read positive. I turned to stare at Carly.
She nodded. That was enough, for the first time in my life I fainted.
