Chapter 2

Marti's breathing heavied as she rested her hands on Lewis's back, as he pressed into her slowly. Every time he pressed into her, a small moan would ride up from her throat, sometimes resembling his name. Her nails pressed into his back as he continued, and her hips pushed up to meet his thrusts. Heavy breathing filled the room, and Marti didn't know what to think of this...

Marti's eyes shot open as she looked around, realizing that she was in bed with Julian. Cold beads of sweat her dripping down her forehead, and she let out a heavied sigh, running her hand across her forehead to get rid of those beads of sweat. She looked over at Julian, who was looking at her, obviously because he was concerned with the way that she had woken before him.

"Are you alright?" Julian whispered.

Marti nodded her head a bit too fast. "Yeah, i'm fine...I'm just...I'm gonna take a shower," She said, lifting the blankets up from herself, as she climbed out of the bed that she shared with Julian, the nights that she stayed at his place.

Julian couldn't help but look at the clock, and then glance back at his girlfriend. "Babe, it's two in the morning." He said.

"I don't care, i'll be fine. I'm a big girl." Marti said, shrugging her shoulders as she walked into the bathroom, closing the door behind her.

Once she got into the bathroom, Marti took two towels out of the drawer, laid one on the floor to catch dripping water from the shower she was about to take, and left the other one on the counter. She turned over, and walked over to the shower, turning it on. It took her a few minutes to adjust the water to the warmth she liked, but once she got it to the right warmth, she sighed, and took her pajama's off.

Her silk pajama pants and t-shirt, along with her undergarments were now laying on the counter with her towel. She climbed into the shower, and she closed the curtain behind her. She walked further into the water and let it run over her, as tears filled in her eyes. It had been a little over two months since she and Lewis had been intimate with each other, and after Marti went to the doctor, it came to her surprise that she went a little bit late, and she's now two months pregnant.

The only people that knew were Vanessa, on account of her place on the team, and Savannah. Savannah found out first, because she was the one that convinved Marti to take the pregnancy test, and Vanessa found out second, because Marti was concerned about her place on the team. Vanessa had advised that she would bump up a teammate from on the floor to Marti's spot until she has a baby and can return.

Ten minutes later, Marti got out of the shower and dressed herself back into her pajama's. She brushed her hair and blowdried it, before leaving it down, and going back into Julian's room, climbing back into bed with him.

The next morning came quickly, and Marti was back at the Cheertown to sit in on rehearsal for a new Hellcats routine. Once she walked into the kitchen, she saw Lewis sitting down by himself, and she figured now would have been better than ever to finally tell him the secret that she had been keeping. It wasn't that much of a secret though, because she was kind of showing already, but she figured Lewis hadn't caught on yet if he didn't say anything to her.

Marti walked over to the table and sat down next to Lewis, looking at him for a few seconds. It was clear that something was on her mind.

"What?" Lewis asked. "What's wrong?"

"...There's something I need to tell you," Marti said, as her voice cracked.

"...Don't cry, Marti, what's wrong?"

"Lewis, we...We did what we did, and as much as I liked it, it was wrong..."

"Well, we agreed on that, but it's okay, nothing came out of it..."

"...No, actually, something did," Marti said, sniffling as tears fell down her cheeks.

"What?" Lewis asked, "Marti, what's going on?"

Marti stared at Lewis for a few seconds, before glancing around. She had only glanced behind her, and not to the corner of the room, where Alice had been hiding, in order not to be seen by them.

"Lewis, i'm pregnant..." Marti said, letting out a small sob.

Lewis opened his mouth to say something, but was stopped by Alice, who was now standing next to Marti.

"You're what?" Alice asked.

"Alice, stay out of it, it's not your business," Lewis said.

"The hell it isn't, you got Marti pregnant? That's why...Oh my god, that's why she hasn't been doing anything at practices lately!"

Marti stayed silent, as tears continued to slide down her cheeks. "Alice, look..."

"Shut up," Alice said, "Who do you think you are? What gave you the right to think it's okay to have sex with Lewis?"

Marti got up from where she was sitting and she pushed her seat in, turning to leave.

"Marti, wait...Please stay..." Lewis said.

I asked her to stay, she wouldn't listen...

She left before I had the chance to say

the words that would mend the things

that were broken. Now, it's far too

late, she's gone away...

"We can talk later, Lewis...When you aren't with her," Marti said, walking out of the kitchen.

Once Marti had left, Alice turned to look at Lewis, and she hit her fists against his chest.

"You got Marti pregnant! What the fuck is wrong with you!" She said.

"Alice, stop! You and I weren't even together when it happened, quit it!"

"What are you talking about! We've been together for the past six months, where have you been!"

"Clearly not in my own mind," Lewis snapped, pulling Alice's wrists away from him, as he turned to walk out of the kitchen.

"Lewis," Alice said.

"I'll talk to you later, Alice." He said, walking out of the kitchen.

Marti let out a rack of sobs as she walked back into hers and Savannah's room. Thankfully, Dan and Savannah weren't in there, and Marti closed the door behind her. She slid her shoes off and walked over to her bed, pulling her covers up. She climbed into her bed and pulled the covers over her, turning onto her side. She let out a rack of sobs, running over her face.

So many things were running through her mind. She had told Lewis that she was pregnant, the secret she had been holding in. She knew she had to tell Julian, but knowing that the baby's father had knew now, clearly took a little bit of stress off of her, but Alice found out, and she wasn't that happy. It meant that this whole thing wasn't going to have a good outcome, which made Marti scared out of her mind when it came to having to tell Julian.

Marti was just so fed up with what had gone on, within a few minutes, Marti was laying on her back in a comfortable position, and her eyes had slowly drifted closed, though tears were still sliding down her cheeks, and she fell into a sleep.

Every night, you cry yourself to sleep,

Thinking: "Why does this happen to me?"

Why does every moment have to be so hard?

Hard to believe that, it's not over tonight, just

give me one more chance to make it right. I

may not make it through the night, I won't

go home without you...
