Chapter 50 - Anastasia

January 2026.

1 month later… I feel really sick in my stomach, I don’t know why… so I decided to go to the hospital with my mom and sister Sophia to check up on me but I want my mom and Sophia to stay in my mom’s car while I would be there by myself since Michael is hanging out with his friends.

I’m in the waiting room by myself because I don’t want to call people on my phone and I just finished signing in, I feel my stomach cramps badly.

I’m listening to music and I’m thinking deeper about what happened to me in the past when Henry raped me twice but I know Henry didn’t cum inside me when he raped me twice, I hope I’m not pregnant but if I am pregnant with Michael’s baby… I would be very happy at least…

I sigh deeply slowly to calm myself down to not think about pain in my stomach and I see the nurse walk into the waiting room as she looks at me after she calls my name, I gulp slowly as I get up from the chair and I walk toward her.

Wanda looks at me as she smiles softly and she says, “Hey Anastasia.”

“Hi Wanda…” I sigh deeply as I look at Wanda and I ask in a curious voice, “I think you wonder why am I here right?”

Wanda nodded slowly as she looks at me with a concerned look and she says, “Yeah…”

“I think I’m pregnant.” I look at Wanda with a sad look.

Wanda sighs deeply as she nodded slowly and she says, “Come on.”

I follow her in the room as I see Sarah walk into the room and I say, “Hi Sarah.”

Sarah looks at me as she smiles softly and she says, “Hey.” Sarah sighs deeply and she says, “I’ll take your blood drawn and I’ll see if you’re pregnant or not.”

“Okay…” I sigh in a nervous way.


20 minutes later… I’m still at the hospital and I’m still waiting for the result since it has been 20 minutes… I feel my phone vibrate a few times but I don’t look or answer it because I can tell it’s Mike…

I see Sarah walk into the room as she looks at me with a happy look and she says, “You’re pregnant.”

I don’t say anything, I look at Sarah with a scared and happy look.

How can I be pregnant at 24 years old, why am I going to be a mom at 24 years old…?

I’m really scared to be a mom; I don’t know how I can explain it to my family and friends… I know I would tell Michael that I’m pregnant, he would be so happy but scared like I am right now… since we have been together for 2 ½ years.

“Anastasia?” Sarah snaps out of my thoughts as she notices that I look pale and freaked out and she says, “Calm down.”

I sigh deeply slowly as I look at Sarah with a nervous look and I say, “I don’t understand that I’m pregnant… I mean… I feel sick for a month because I thought it was just a stomach bug…” I sigh deeply to calm myself down as I shake my head and I ask in a shocked voice, “So… I’m pregnant with Michael’s baby?”

Sarah sighs deeply and she nodded slowly and she says, “Yes you’re pregnant with Michael’s baby… but you have your friends and family with you.”

I nodded slowly as I sigh deeply.

Should I worry about being pregnant?

“Ana…” Sarah sees I look at Sarah with a sad look as I sigh deeply and she asks in a curious voice, “Do you want to keep it or not?”

Should I keep my baby inside me or not? I don’t know what to feel or think.

I sigh deeply as I nodded slowly and I say, “Yes…

Sarah looks at me with a confused look as she sighs deeply and she asks in a curious voice, “Are you sure?”

“Yes.”

“Okay…”


2 hours later… I arrived home with Sophia and Susan, I was so sleepy but I have so many things on my mind… I didn’t tell them because I lied to them that I have a stomach bug, I have to tell Michael about my pregnancy. Good thing; I have ultrasound pictures of our unborn baby inside me since I decided to put my ultrasound pictures on their kitchen island… I walk into our bedroom as I see Michael’s letter on our bed, I raise my eyebrows in confusion.

I grab his letter from our bed as I read his letter… I see a sentence;

‘Congratulation, I’m offering you to work with me in NYC, you would move to NYC permanently, let me know if you are interesting!’

I sigh deeply as I feel confused and surprised that his new boss offers him to work in NYC… I don’t know how can I break him some news about my pregnancy… I put my hand on my flat belly since our baby would be in my belly as I look down on my belly and I smile softly.

Yup, I’m going to be a mom… I’m excited but scared…

I walk out of our bedroom as I walk down of stairs after I walk toward their stairs and I walk toward their family room as I see Michael sits down on their family room couch and I ask in a curious and nervous voice, “Babe?” I raise my eyebrows in a nervous way.

“Hmm?” Michael looks up at me from their family room couch since we are still living at Sophia’s house for a month after what happened to me a few months ago with Henry…

“What is it?” I grab his letter from his nightstand when I found his letter about a job in NYC. I see Michael looks at me with a sad look.

“Ana—”

“I’m not angry… when did you find out?” I raise my eyebrows in confusion.

“A month ago, I didn’t know what else to say to you because you went through so much.” Michael sighs deeply.

“Babe, I’m not mad… I mean… NYC is a really exciting experiencing for us.” I smile softly and I say, “I have the best news for you.”

“Uh-oh… what is it?” Michael raises his eyebrows in confusion.

“Why don’t you come with me to their kitchen?” I smile softly as I see Michael get up from their family room couch and following me from their kitchen as I grab my ultrasound picture from their island table and I say, “Close your eyes.”

“Okay…” Michael chuckles softly as he closes his eyes and he feels my ultrasound picture on his hand.

“Open your eyes.” I smile big.

Michael opens his eyes as he looks down at the picture, it took him like 30 seconds to realize that I’m pregnant… with his baby.

“Oh my god… you’re pregnant!!!!” Michael sees I nodded while I have my tears in my eyes and he picked me up and hold me tightly.

“Yes, I’m pregnant with our baby.” I smile as I let my tears falling down on my cheeks while I hug him for a few seconds.

Michael puts me down as he pulls away from me and he asks in a curious voice, “Is it why you aren’t feeling so good for a month?”

“Mhm-mhm.” I smile.

“Anastasia Hathaway, what did I do with you…” Michael smiles softly as he puts his hand on my belly and he says, “I’m going to be a dad.”

I nodded and I say, “Yup, I’m going to be a mom.” I giggle softly.

“Do your mom and sister Sophia know?” Michael raises his eyebrows in confusion.

“No, I wanted to tell you first.” I smile softly.

Sophia raises her eyebrows in confusion as she walks into their kitchen after she sees Michael and I hug each other and she asks in a curious voice, “What’s up?”

I turn around as I smile and I say, “I’m pregnant.”

“Oh my god!!!!!” Sophia runs toward me as she hugs me tightly for a few seconds and she pulls away from hugging me and she says, “But you lied to me and mom.”

“Yeah.” I laugh softly and I say, “I want to tell Michael first.” I smile softly as I walk out of their kitchen and we walk toward their family room.

“How far along are you babe?” Michael sees I sit down on their family room couch.

“3 weeks along…” I see Michael sits down next to me as he puts his hand on my belly and I say, “We do need to talk about NYC.”

“NYC?” Sophia raises her eyebrows in confusion.

“I’ll tell you later.”

“Okay… I’m going out with my husband and kids; you will be okay here?” Sophia raises her eyebrows in confusion.

“Yup, we will be fine, I think Michael and I would just chilling since I’m pregnant and I’m still feeling sick.”

“Okay… it’s fine… we will be back in the morning because we are going to Damon’s parents’ house for a night.”

“Awesome!” Michael smiles big as he sees Sophia and I shake our heads, Michael chuckles softly and he says, “I can have alone time with my beautiful girlfriend.”

I roll my eyes as I blush on my cheeks, Michael always makes me blush on my face all the time…

“Okay… too much information.” Sophia rolls her eyes as she walks away.

“You know you’re an asshole.” I see Michael smiles teasingly.

“I know.”


Later that evening… Michael and I have been laying down on our bed and relaxing…

“A question.”

“Hmm?” Michael’s hand on my hair to stroke my hair gently.

“Do you want to move to NYC?” I raise my eyebrows in confusion.

“Honestly… yes.” Michael sighs deeply and he says, “My new boss offers me an amazing job… in NYC… he loved my foods so much.”

“Okay… but what about our family and friends??” I sit up from our bed and I say, “I mean if my family or friends would move to NYC.”

“Babe… we would talk more because my boss wants me to move there at the end of this year.” Michael sighs deeply and he says, “I want you to come with me.”

“Can I think about it?” I sigh deeply.

“Of course.”

Should I move to NYC with Michael? I have no fucking idea…
