Chapter Thirteen.


We stopped outside a café because Nikki had to go to the toilet and bad. She headed in and I turned to Bryce, his dark blonde hair falling in front of his face for the 50th time. I rolled my eyes as he fixed it again.

“Can I talk to you about something? it’s kind of serious.” I asked looking towards him, he nodded.

“Addi is pregnant, and I’m not the dad this guy named Tim raped her is. I don't know what to do, and in no way whatsoever am I ready to be a dad, but I also love her to much to leave her.” I looked at the ground, Addi had been calling and texting me all day but not once did I reply.

“Look Kyle, I’m going to be straight with you. Addi being a girl is probably going to keep it, this kid isn't yours so I don't see why you have to stick around to watch it grow up. If you stay the kid might get attached and then your stuck with her no matter what. Don’t you want the chance to live life?” He looked at me straight in the eyes, he was right though, if I stayed I’d only get Addi’s hopes up and she is way to perfect to be with someone as fucked up as me.

I looked inside the café to see her sitting on a seat in the corner, tears were running down her rosy pink cheeks, I wanted to take away all her pain and make it my own. But I couldn't, I was only going to make it worse. I saw Nikki run up to her and give her a hug, Nikki was always so sweet to everyone. I pulled out my phone and dialed Addi’s number as Nikki ran outside.

“Hey sorry been busy.” I tried focusing on something other than her, I needed to get through this.

“That’s okay, want to go hang out?” I sighed as I heard her speak, pain lacing her voice. I wanted to cradle her in my arms, I sighed dragging my hand down my face, c'mon Kyle just break her heart.

“No.” I told her straight up, I took another deep breathe. Break her heart.

“Look Addi, I don’t think we should talk anymore.” I saw her roll her eyes at me.

“Why am I not surprised, your the same as every other fuckboy at school. You know I actually thought you changed, stupid me.” I felt hurt at her words, I was breaking her heart.

“I did change Addi, but I’m not ready to be a dad. I’m 16, I still have so much I want to do.” I tried explaining to her, hopefully she wouldn't hate me. At that moment Nikki ran out and Bryce gave her a hug, he whispered something to her pointing to me. She nodded walking over grabbing my hand.

“Fuck you Kyle! I’m not keeping it!” She yelled at me, I could hear the hatred in her voice, she hung up on me and looked straight at me and Nikki. We started walking away, I couldn't see her heartbroken face any longer. I had just made the biggest mistake of my life.

"Bryce I fucked up." He turned to me. "She's not keeping it." I looked down at the ground, I never should have listened to Bryce.

"Shit. You need to talk to her." I turned on my feet to head back to the café, as I turned a corner I saw Addi running down the street. I couldn't chase after her, she was to far away, she was probably heading home so that's where I started heading that way.


I got up from where I was seating and walked out of the doors, I probably looked pregnant that's why he left. I needed to work out, I needed to sweat. I ran to the gym that was a twenty minute run from here. When I entered the glass double doors I immediately went over to the treadmill section and jumped on one and started sprinting.

I ran even after my lungs begged me to stop, I needed to lose this baby fat. I needed to run. I felt someone's arms pull me off the treadmill, I turned to see Kyle's face looking at me with worried eyes. My chest heaved up and down.

"What are you doing! I was in the middle of something." I yelled, he pulled me into his arms, hugging me tighter when I tried to push him off me. I felt tears slide down my cheeks unchecked, I started sobbing in his arms. I didn't care how angry I was at him I just needed comfort.

"What were you doing? Trying to kill yourself!" he asked pulling me back out of his arms to look at me. I shook my head at him.

"I needed to lose weight my baby was starting to show that's why you broke up with me?" I kind of asked looking up into his brown eyes, he shook his head at me.

"No gorgeous, I thought I was being selfish by being with you, I also just wasn't ready to be a dad. Blame Bryce for talking to you like that." He explained, he pulled me back into his arms.

"Fucking Bryce." I laughed. We started leaving the gym, as the cool air hit my face it made my sight dance with darkness. When I woke up I was in the hospital.
