"Ok everyone, I know that I'm just your science teacher, but part of science is the way the body works. So today will serve as somewhat of a…sex education class." Explained Ms. Coleman-Levin.
Immediately the class started to giggle. All except Gwen that is. Zack, Cam, and Spence, who were sitting together in the back of the room, were giggling like schoolgirls. Gwen shot Zack a look that shut him up immediately.
"Ok that's enough." Ms. Coleman-Levin said. "Now the body works in very strange ways…"
In the back of the room, Gwen passed Zack a note on a slip of paper. Zack opened and read it.
"How are you doing today?"
Zack reached for his pencil and scribbled below her message. "I'm good, how about you?"
"I'm ok. I haven't been feeling very well ever since…you know…three days ago."
"What do you think it could be?"
"I'm not sure. If I don't feel better soon then my dad is going to take me to see the doctor."
"Ok. I hope everything is ok with you. Xoxo"
"Me to xoxoxoxoxo"
"Ok you win. Oh no, Ms. Coleman-Levin is looking over here, better stop."
"ZACK! GWEN! Why are you passing notes during my lecture? You're going to miss the entire part on pregnancy."
"Sorry." Gwen said.
"Sorry. But why do we need to know about being pregnant? It can't happen until we're adults." Zack commented.
Ms. Coleman's eyes lightened up. This seemed to be something she had been waiting for. "Ah Zack, but that's where you're wrong. You can get or become pregnant at young ages as well. As young as 10 years old. That's why this subject goes hand in hand with the safe sex classes you'll be taking in high school."
"Ok." Zack said. For Zack, what his teacher said went in one ear and out the other.
For Gwen however, this was an eye opener…could she be…no it couldn't be…could it???
