Chapter Three - Shocking Moments
"Aiyanna, hunny its time to get up." My mother shouted up the hallway of the house waking me from my slumber.
I looked at the clock beside my bed and seen that I had more time than usual to get ready.
Grabbing my phone off the nightstand, I started to scroll through all my social media apps. I put my hand on my stomach and felt the hardened bump that was there; I rubbed lightly and smiled down at my growing tummy.
My door burst open and in came my mom; she went straight to the window and pulled open the curtain letting a flood of light into the room. It looked like it was actually sunny in La Push today.
Groaning, I put my hands behind my head and stretched my body out. I was still wearing my clothes from yesterday and I had slept with no cover on me either.
"What's this Aiy?" My mom asked as she bent down to pick up my folder that Sharon had given me. I noticed it laying it face down on the floor, I must have knocked it off my bed in my sleep.
"No mom, I'll pick that up, don't worry!" I yelled out as I tried to scurry off the bed to pick it up.
I was too late she had picked it up and some of the sheets had fell out onto the ground. I watched her face carefully and it changed to a dramatic look of shock as she picked up the printed out picture of my ultrasound.
"Aiyanna Grace Torek, what the hell is this?" She ground out angrily.
"Mom, I can explain." I said quickly "I..."
"You'd better be able to explain! You're not going to school today. I'm going to call you in sick and when I get home from dropping off your sisters you better have a damn good explanation Aiyanna." She spat at me as she left and slammed the door taking my folder with her.
I didn't want to tell her so quickly; I wanted to figure out the best way to do it without her getting angry at me.
Well it's too late for that, isn't it?
I got off my bed and went to get a shower, I had to stop myself from staying in there and hiding from my mom but I had to just tell her.
Getting out of the shower I heard the front door slam, I rushed to put on my clothes and make my bed up. Hugging my teddy to me before I placed him back on the pillow in his place the door slammed again signalling that my mother was back.
I took a deep breath and left my room, walking down the stairs I felt the tears well up in my eyes.
I walked into the kitchen and sat at the table as she made tea and then sat down with me placing the folder in between us.
"Explain." Was all she said.
I told her about going to get the pill and how I had to have some routine checks done and how Dr. Lahote had found out I was pregnant. A lone tear ran down my cheek as she shook her head at me.
"How far along are you?" She asked.
"20 weeks. I had bleeding, so I thought I was getting my period. But it turns out that it can be quite common in early pregnancy." I explained quietly.
"So you're due in October?"
"No, late September." I whispered again. I wasn't able to read her reactions. She wasn't showing any emotion. It was as if she was trying to hide her reaction from me.
"And it's Paul's I assume?" She said quietly.
"Yeah mom. It's Paul's baby." She breathed a sigh of relief as I said this.
"Thank god! Does he know?"
"No. I only found out yesterday mom."
"Well maybe it's time you give that boy another chance. You two were always happy together. Paul has been through a rough time lately and I don't think it was right of you to leave him when he needed you the most." She said nonchalantly.
"When he needed me the most? Mom he basically begged me to end it because he couldn't." I whispered.
"He still wants you back doesn't he? Everybody makes mistakes. Give him another chance. And I'm not only saying this because of the baby. I'm saying it because I think you two are meant for each other." She said as she stood up and rinsed her cup out turning back to look at me.
"Mom I'm so sorry" I cried out "I don't want to disappoint you or be a failure. I'm so so sorry mom." The tears were flowing down my face now.
She grabbed me up in to a hug and held me tightly.
"Aiya, you've nothing to be sorry for. As I said mistakes can happen. And everything in this life happens for a reason. You need to remember that. Obviously I'm a little bit sad that you won't be married before having children. But you'll still be a great mother. You could never be a failure Aiyanna. Never." She squeezed me tighter and then let go. "I'm going to get ready for work. You stay home today and rest."
She headed for the stairs just as there was an urgent knock on the door. She opened the door up and there stood Paul Lahote in all his glory.
"Hi Maria, I was just wondering if Aiya was okay? She didn't make it to school and I just wanted to check up on her." He said rubbing the back of his head.
I quickly put all the sheets in the folder and closed it over.
"Why don't you come in and ask her yourself dear?" She said smiling at him. She grabbed him into a quick hug. "It's good to have you back Paul." She said smiling as she left and walked up the stairs.
I watched as he shuffled quietly towards me. Rubbing the back of his head again he mumbled out a hey.
"What are you doing here Paul?" I asked.
"You heard me; I wanted to check on you." He said staring into my eyes.
"Yeah but Paul why? Why do you care?"
"Because Aiyanna I love you! I want you back. I want to be able to come here and check on you on days like today and not be nervous or scared. I want us to go back to how it used to be! I love you!" He said in the surest voice I had ever heard.
For the first time in a long time I actually believed what he said.
Without thinking I jumped forward and unsuccessfully tried to kiss him, he was way too tall.
He chuckled at my failed attempt and pulling me close to him he snaked his arms around my waist and bent his head down planting an ever so gentle kiss on my lips. I felt like a bolt of electricity had gone through me.
I heard the door close and realised my mom had left for work.
I put my hands on either side of his face and pulled his head down again. He kissed me again, but it was a lot more urgent this time. Turning us around he lifted me so I was sitting on the counter and he was between my legs. His tongue was fighting for dominance with mine and I was beginning to feel light headed. Slowly I pulled away and stared into his eyes as he rested his forehead against mine.
"I love you Aiyanna Torek." He whispered.
"I love you too Paul La-fucking-hote." I whispered back earning a chuckle from him. I smiled at him as he pulled me in for a hug. He always made me feel okay.
At that moment in time I felt like everything would fall into place. I was so happy. Until he dragged me from my train of thought
"So what do you say Aiy? Will you get back with me? Will you be mine again?" He whispered.
