The News

A few things before we start.

One, for some reason, XxNinjaCatBabyxX thinks Eddy's brother thinks Eddy is gay, so that's gonna be mentioned a couple times.

The name me and NCB have chosen for Eddy's brother, after lots of funny arguing, is Danny.

I was sitting in the living room, on the couch, reading one of my favorite books. All of a sudden I didn't feel well and rushed to the bathroom and threw up in the toilet. Eddy looked up from his motorcycle magazine and frowned.

"Bella are you alright?" He asked. I stopped throwing up and stood up.

"Mmm." I didn't really know. I washed my face, ""I'm better now," I sighed and sat back down, but I was thinking. I had been late for a week or two now, add this...

Was it possible...?

Eddy rolled his eyes at Bella.

"Did you seriously eat a whole tuna?" He asked. That was why she usually threw up.

"Not lately," I said, blushing slightly. Edd's eyes widened.

"She ate a whole tuna?" He asked, surprised.

"A-a few times," I mumbled, "But not lately..."

"Yeah, she ate the bones and everything," Eddy told Edd. I thought his eyes were seriously going to explode.

"I did not eat the bones!" I glared at Eddy.

"How did you like the marrow?" He teased. I glared again and buried my face in my book, ignoring him. Eddy got up and chuckled.

"I'm going to get a fruit tart," He said, "Be right back."

"Actually, it's getting pretty late," I looked at the clock on the wall, which said 9:23, "Maybe you should head home."

"My brother is home," Eddy said, "Are you serious?!"

"What's he doing here?" I asked, confused.

"I told him that I wasn't gay and I had a real girlfriend so he came to see for himself," Eddy growled.

"Oh," I said, "Well, still, you can't sleep over. It's a school night and my papa still doesn't like you."

"I guess I can manage," Eddy smiled. "He's just a joke." He grabbed a fruit tart for the road and left. I went to my room and fell asleep, a little worried.

The next morning, I got ready for school and me and the Eds were waiting outside for the bus. Eddy waved to me.

"Here, kitty kitty kitty!" He teased. I giggled and kissed Eddy.

"Morning," I greeted.

"Lumpy is extra happy today, brace yourself," Eddy warned.

"Hallo, friends!" Ed cried happily, embracing all three of us in a big hug.

"Ciao, Ed," I gasped.

"Put us down, lumpy," Eddy gasped. Ed dropped us and I took a deep breath. Eddy dusted himself off.

"Let's get going, I see Danny," Eddy snapped. We stepped on the bus, and I was scared and angry at the same time, because of Danny. Eddy saw him look at us, so he raised his finger.

"Fuck you, Danny," Eddy said. I sat down next to Eddy and closed my eyes. I was a bit tired, since I sat up most of the night thinking. Eddy looked at me.

You okay?" He asked.

"Hmm?" I opened my eyes, "Yeah, just a bit tired. I was up late thinking."

"What about?" Eddy asked.

"Stuff," I mumbled, not really wanting to share yet. I wasn't even sure myself yet.

"M'kay," Eddy said.

I was distracted throughout the classes, and after school I borrow my papa's car and went straight to the store. I came back home and took the test, and what I saw shocked me. I clasped my hand to my mouth.

"What is it, Bella?" Edd said, knocking on my door.

"Um, n-n-nothing," I called, hiding the little stick.

"I heard you scream," Edd said.

"What?" I panicked, "Um, n-no, I just...dropped something. You know how-how dramatic I am." I laughed nervously.

"My apologies for being stupid," Edd said, blushing.

"N-no, i-it's alright," I said, "Y-you were just worried." I faked a smile as I heard Doppio D walk away, then curled up and buried my face in my arms.

"Except I'm not being dramatic," I whispered.

The next day was Saturday, so we didn't have school. Me and Eddy were in the park, and I was really nervous. It must have showed on my face. Eddy raised an eyebrow at me.

"Do you finally think that I'm intimidating?" He teased.

"No," I said, "It's just...there's something I need to tell you." I looked the other way at the ground. Eddy raised his eyebrow again.

"What's that?" He asked, putting his hand on mine. I looked at Eddy's hand on mine and sighed, looking down again.

"I-I," The words caught in my throat and I said in barely more than a whisper, "I'm pregnant."

Sorry for the short first chapter, but these have no spesific length, so one chapter may be as short as this one, while the next may be twice as long. The reason why is we didn't divide chapters and I'm posting this as a surprise for my friend, so she doesn't know I'm posting it right now. In the next chapters I might have NCB say some stuff.

Deleted User: I've only read so far to the first two chapters, but I already get that thick, underlying meaning of dark romance--which is good, because it sets the tone, with a hint of danger. However, some parts of the writing did come across as a bit dull, and I personally think that starting a second chapte...
