Chapter 40.1 [Part 1]
As soon as the words were out of my mouth, Jack’s eyes lit up happily.
“You’re carrying my child?” Jack asked with a smile as he took my hand in his.
“You found out yesterday didn’t you?” Jack asked with a knowing look. “Why didn’t you tell me?”
“After finding out for sure, I needed to come to terms with it,”
“How do you mean? Please don’t tell me you’re considering abortion Sienna,” Jack pleaded.
“Well I did initially,” I admitted.
“What?” You were thinking of aborting my child without telling me?”
“I would never do that Jack. I was just considering all my options plus we’ve never spoke about being parents. How was I to know that you’d want to be a Dad?”
“Are you saying you don’t want to be a Mum?” Jack asked.
“I would like to be a Mum but I didn’t think it would be this soon,”
“So we’re keeping our baby?”
Obviously we were keeping our baby. Why would I have an abortion? I know it’s too early on in our relationship and we never planned on having a baby but it's happening now. I’ve always wanted to be a Mum. I didn’t think it would happen at this point in my life but that is the thing about life, it doesn’t always go according to plan.
“Of course we’re keeping our baby. Why wouldn’t we be keeping our baby, we-,” I began to say but before I could finish my words, I felt Jack place his lips on mine happily.
“Thank God,” Jack sighed in relief when our lips parted. “For a second there I thought you were going to get rid of our baby,”
“I wouldn’t do that,”
“Good. I can’t believe we’re having a baby. I wonder if it will be a boy or girl. I can’t wait to tell Dad, he’s going to be ecstatic that I’m finally giving him a grandchild,”
I stiffened in Jack’s arm as he told me he was excited to tell people. We only just found out ourselves, we need to come to terms with the fact before telling anyone.
“What’s wrong?” Jack asked when he noticed me go still.
“I’m not ready for people to find out yet, we just found out ourselves. I need some time before anyone finds out,”
Jack nodded in understanding before he smirked and said
“Of course, it will be our little secret,”
