Chapter one

Joanne's POV

3 weeks after her and Lewis had sex…

"Oh, God. Oh, God. Oh, God" I kept repeating to myself as I stared down at the test in my hands. I couldn't believe what I was seeing. It was positive, all three of them were positive. I was pregnant. I was taking deep breaths to try and calm myself down. I needed to find Lewis, he needs to know. I shoved the tests in my bag before walking out of the girls' toilets and heading towards the science room, where no doubt Lewis will be. I was about to walk in, but I hesitated slightly before gaining enough courage to walk in. I walked in and as I suspected, he was sat there taking notes for our project. "Jo, there you are! You're late again" he states. I knew I was late but could you blame me after what I just found out. I'm 18 and I'm pregnant with his kid and he needs to know.

"Sorry" I mutter and I must have said it a bit too late because he looked at me funny. "Are you ok, Jo?" he asks and for the first time in my life, I had no idea what to say. I took a deep breath and was about to tell him, but I decided that we should get our work done first and then I'll tell him afterwards. I nod and walk over and take my seat as we do the work and once we'd finished and had logged in our results, I was going to tell him but he just grabbed his bag and started walking away towards the door. "Lewis, I need to talk to you" I tell him. "I've got to go, Jo. Tell me later" he states as he carries on walking. He was about to open the door when I lost my temper and just shouted it out right there and then.

"I'm pregnant, Lewis" I shout and that made him stop in his tracks. He turned round and he looked confused and shocked and there were probably several other emotions there as well. "You can't be pregnant" he says and I just shrug as I go into my bag and I pull out the pregnancy tests and lay them on the table. He jogs back over to me and he drops his bag onto the floor as he looks down at the tests. "Oh, God. Jo, I'm sorry; I didn't mean to do this. I'm sorry" he says but I just give another half-hearted shrug. "Nothing we can do about it now" I point out and he plonks himself back down next to me as he carries on staring at the tests, almost as if his life depended on it.

"What are we going to do then?" I ask him and he manages to pull his gaze from the tests and to me. "Well, I'm not sure to be honest. We have three options really" he tells me and I think over what the options are. "Abortion, adoption and keeping the baby" I recite aloud and he nods. I didn't know what to think or what to do or anything really. My brain felt so mashed up right now that I couldn't really think clearly, but I knew that abortion was out of the question. "I don't believe in abortion and I know for a fact that you don't either" I tell him and he nods. "I know I don't. I never thought abortion was a good option, I always thought it was the last one you should ever go for. But Jo, maybe abortion is the better option for us; I mean, God we're only 18. I don't think we're ready for this" he tries to persuade me but I just shake my head.

"No, Lewis. No abortion. And to be honest I don't even think adoption is much of an option because I can't sit around and watch someone else have and raise my child. So we're left with one option" I tell him and he takes a deep breath as he nods. "We're keeping the baby then" he says and I nod, hoping that he will understand my reasoning and will be there to help. "Are you sure, Jo?" he asks looking at me. When I nod I see a glimmer of happiness go through his eyes but I don't say anything as we sit in silence for a few minutes, just thinking really. "Jo, you know I'm going to be there every step of the way don't you." He states and I nod, much to his relief. "Good. So, I think we should make a doctor's appointment. You know, to get it confirmed" he tells me and I agree. I pull out my phone and make the appointment. Lewis stayed with me while I made it. When I put the phone down I turned to him. "I got one for today at 4:45pm" I tell him and he nods. "I'll be there, I promise" he tells me as we get our stuff and head out the science lab together.
