Summary

Laney and Ace were strangers. They meet at a wedding. They have sex after the wedding. Now they're going to raise a baby together. Laney is a good girl. She put herself through college, and is now an artist that survives off commission and is working to get her name out there. So getting pregnant was not a part of her plan. Especially not getting pregnant by rock god, Ace Flanagan. Now they have a few months to get their lives together before a little human being is brought into the world. Can they do it? Ace Flanagan was all about having fun, fathering a child was not in his plan either. A one night stand gone wrong, but as he gets to know Laney, he learns that she doesn't care about his fame. Actually, she would rather not be in the public eye, and wants to stay very far away from those in it. He didn't even know her sister was super model Addison Michaels.

Chapter 1

Laney Michaels

It was a warm sensation between my thighs that woke me up. I blinked a few times, looked at the alarm clock right across from me, it read a quarter after two in the morning. I had fallen asleep before Noel’s plane landed, I guess I’ll just talk to her tomorrow.

My phone buzzed and it lit up with Ace’s face and number. I pressed the mute button on my phone. I did not want to talk to Ace right now, he was in LA with his new girlfriend, and I was just his knocked up hook up that happened seven months ago. If he was calling me at this time it was because he was drunk or something.

I was in a sweat because of the end of May heat that was signaling the summer to come. My mouth felt dry and I pushed myself up on the bed to get up and get some water. That’s when I remember what woke me up. There was a wetness between my legs.

Had my water broke? No. It was too early, I was barely thirty two weeks, it just wasn’t possible. This didn’t feel like water, there was a heaviness to it, something felt wrong.

I pressed my left hand on the wetness, and immediately my hand felt sticky. I turned on the lamp beside me to get a better look at what it was and screamed when I saw the blood on my hand and on the mattress.

I was sitting in a pool of my own blood. I grabbed my phone and dialed my sister Addie who was a few minutes away from me.

I moved my legs to the side of the bed, and that’s when I feel the first contraction, and I start to feel really light headed. I couldn’t move, it hurt so much, then it slowly faded out. I could breathe again.

“Hello?” I hear Addie’s voice.

“Addie.” My voice cracks and I fight back tears. I press my hand on my stomach, I feel no movement. The baby. Pudge needs to be okay. My baby needs to be okay and grow inside me for a few more weeks, it was too early for the baby to come out.

“Laney, what’s wrong? It’s two in the morning.” I felt bad because I had woken her up and she’s pregnant, too, its probably not good for her.

“I’m bleeding, and I think I’m having contractions.” Another one hits me, it’s a big one. I can’t help but cry out in pain.

“What? I’m on my way right now, try not to move. I will help you once I get there. I’ll take you to the ER.” She was using her high voice, the one she used when she was stressed and about to freak out.

“I’m scared.” I cry. “I’m not ready to be a mom.” Tears were streaming down my face.

“Call Ace.”

“No. He’ll blame me.” I actually knew he wouldn’t. I just really did not want to call him.

“If he blames you, I will punch him so hard in the throat he won’t be able to sing ever again.” That gets a small laugh out of me, and then another contraction. I groan in pain.

“Get here soon, Addie.”

“I will.” She ends the call.

I find myself dialing Ace. I manage to stand up, I needed to get the hospital bag, which was in the closet. The light headedness doesn’t go away, and I’m seeing black spots in my vision, which I’m sure isn’t a good sign. It takes over my sight, almost completely.

“Hello? Laney?” His raspy voice is the last thing I hear before I go down and everything goes dark.
