As I look down at the white plastic test strip in my hands tears fall from my red swollen eyes. The two pink lines staring up at me, it’s like they were laughing and saying “I told you so, I told you so!” The only thing I could think of is that my life is over, what am I going to do with a baby. I’m an only child ,no cousins or neighbors to baby sit , I’ve never taken care of a baby so how am I going to raise one??? I get up from the toilet where I was sitting and throw the test in garbage by the sink and pull my pants back up. It is now 7:30 and I am late for school. I run down the stairs past my mom who in her mind thought her world was still perfect. I grimace as she yells “Goodbye sweetheart!” I run down the sidewalk new tears starting to well up in my eyes. I only live two blocks from school so I always walk. It gives me time to think and enjoy the fresh air. Good thing today I was late and did not have time to think. Thinking brought up problems and boy did I have a major problem, and serious problems brought tears. I can’t go into school crying that would just look silly. Then there was the fact that I still had to tell my boyfriend, which we had only been dating three months. We never used protection I guess we didn’t think it would happen to us. Being stupid! His name is Jason and he’s 22 and I’m only 16 so that starts a whole other problem that I just don’t have time for.
*That is just a little story that I'm doing for fun, so let me know what you think.
