My Life Is Forever Changed
AN: Here's Everleigh's story. It much longer than I expected...
Episode 5: "Everleigh"
April 9th, 2034
Hey! I'm Everleigh. I'm sixteen years old. I'll be 17 in a few weeks. I'm from Boston Massachusetts. I have a twin sister, Harleigh. She and I do everything together. She's feeling overwhelmed with my pregnancy.
I'm the third oldest to my mom, Bailey and dad, Cody. I have an older sister, Rayne, an older brother, Stephen, I'm the older twin to Harleigh, and I have five younger siblings, Tristian and Christian are twins, then Avalanna, and then Aliannah and Aleeah are also twins.
I want to be a journalist when I grow up. I'm an aunt to Rawlings, who is now 2 years old and an aunt to Ariah, who's now 2 years old. I want to go to college, graduate with honors and enjoy the life of a college student...but that's now all going to change because I'm pregnant. I broke up with my boyfriend a while ago, now, I'm dating Cole Mathews. We were only together for a month before I got pregnant. We are still getting to know each other. I'm currently 29 weeks pregnant, I'm seven months pregnant with a baby girl.
Everleigh walked into the house from school, sighing, she sat on the couch and put her feet up. Being over seven months pregnant and going to school for eight hours is getting exhausting.
My mom, Bailey, walked over to me. "How are you feeling, Eve?"
Everleigh sighed. "Exhausted. I hate being so exhausted after school…"
Bailey sighed. "I know. You're due in 2 months. You can do this. Trust me. If Rayne can do it, you can do it as well."
Everleigh sighed. "Yeah, I guess you're right, Mom. I'm going go take a nap, then do my homework..."
Bailey nodded. "Alright honey."
Everleigh headed upstairs to her room and took a nap.
After her nap, her phone vibrated, she opened her eyes and reached over to open her phone.
Cole's text message: "Hey Eve, I'm in the driveway. Do you want to get ice cream and go to the park for a little bit?"
Everleigh nodded and texted back. "Yes, please."
Cole's text message: "Okay."
After Everleigh fixed her hair and put her shoes on, she headed downstairs and opened the front door. "I'm going out with Cole, Mom. I'll be home later."
Bailey nodded. "Be careful."
"I will." Everleigh headed to Cole's car and got in. "I'm so pregnant..."
Cole sighed. "I'm sorry babe."
Everleigh smiled. "It's okay. Thank God I have 2 more months to go." She looked at him. "We haven't decided on a name for her yet. Do you have any suggestions?"
Cole smiled. "I want her middle name to be your name." He looked at her. "Do you have suggestions for the first name?"
Everleigh smiled. "Awww! I think I have the perfect first name to go with her middle name. What do you think of Bayleigh?"
Cole looked at her. "Really? After your Mom?"
Everleigh smiled. "Yeah. We can call her Bay or Leigh."
Cole nodded. "That sounds amazing Ev."
Everleigh smiled. "I don't want to tell anyone just yet. Maybe when we have the baby shower. It's in a few weeks." She rubbed her belly. "I kinda can't wait to give birth. I'm just so tired after school that I have to take a nap." She sighed.
Cole nodded. He sighed. "I'm sorry, babe."
Everleigh smiled. "I don't regret her at all, it's just overwhelming..." She sighed. "What are we going to do after she's born? I really don't want to go back and forth. I really want her to have us under the same roof..."
Cole paused to think. He pulled into the ice cream place's parking lot. "I know it would be easier for us."
Everleigh smiled. "Really?"
Cole nodded. "Yeah. Bayleigh deserves a stable home and not being bounced back and forth, don't you think?"
Everleigh nodded. "Yeah, I do agree with you. But we only have been together for eight months. That's a little soon..."
Cole sighed. "I know. But, what would we do if we lived separately? I really don't wanna miss Bay's first few weeks of her life and I want to help you. She's my daughter..."
Everleigh nodded in agreement. "I agree with you."
Cole parked the car and got out, walked around to help Everleigh out. "We have a few more weeks to figure out the living situation."
Everleigh nodded as she got out with Cole's help. "Okay."
Cole wrapped his arm around her as they walked inside. "What do you want?"
Everleigh paused. "A chocolate milkshake."
Cole nodded as he then went to order a chocolate milkshake for Everleigh and an ice cream sundae for himself. "Okay."
Aaron saw Everleigh sitting down, he walked over to her. "Hey Everleigh."
Everleigh looked at him. "Hey Aaron."
Aaron smiled. "How are you doing? I heard you're pregnant or your just not your normal size..."
Everleigh sighed. "Yeah, I'm pregnant. I'm 29 weeks."
Aaron's eyes went wide. "You're pregnant with who's baby?"
Cole walked over. "With my baby."
Everleigh sighed. "Right. You haven't met, or I wasn't expecting you to meet at all..."
Aaron looked at him. "Who are you?"
Cole smiled. "I'm Cole. Her boyfriend. Who are you?"
Aaron nodded. "I'm Aaron, her ex boyfriend."
Cole nodded. "She never mentioned you to me before..."
Everleigh covered her face in embarrassment. "I...It didn't seem to be important...We broke up for a reason..."
Cole looked at her. "Why did you feel like I shouldn't know?"
Everleigh sighed. "I don't know."
Aaron looked at her. "So, he knocked you up two months after we broke up?"
Everleigh nodded slowly. "Um...Yeah..."
Aaron's eyes went wide. "Wow."
Everleigh frowned, crossing her arms. "Well, its none of your concern, anyways."
Aaron rolled his eyes. "You couldn't keep your legs closed, huh?"
Everleigh's eyes went wide. She held back tears. "That isn't any of your business!"
Aaron crossed his arms. "How did you go two years without getting pregnant when we were together, but one time you sleep with him, you get pregnant?"
Everleigh wiped her eyes. "I don't know!" She grabbed her milkshake and walked out of the ice cream place. She sniffed.
Cole rushed after her. "Everleigh..."
Everleigh sniffed as she sat on the cerb. "You hate me, don't you?"
Cole shook his head. "No I don't, babe. I could never hate you. You're the mother of my baby...and my girlfriend..."
Everleigh wiped her cheeks. "I'm such a slut..." She began crying softly.
Cole shook his head and hugged her. "No, you're not, baby..." He looked at her. "You're not a slut, Everleigh! That guy might be making up stories to make you angry, Evie."
Everleigh sniffed. "No, he's not making it up. I did sleep with him when I was with him, Cole..." She sighed as she tried to get up. "Ugh. Can you help me up?"
Cole nodded his head as he helped her up. "Of course."
Everleigh held onto her belly as she stood up. "Thank you." She sighed. "I'm not looking forward to getting bigger..."
Cole helped her get into his car and then shut the door. He jumped into his car and turned the car on, headed out of the parking lot and headed to the park. "I know, baby. You're so strong, baby girl. You have a few more weeks to go."
Everleigh nodded her head. "Yeah."
Two Weeks Later
Saturday, April 22, 2034
I'm now 31 weeks pregnant. I'm currently still seven months pregnant. I'll be eight months next week. I had my doctor's appointment a few days ago. Bayleigh looks great and healthy. Cole and I have talked more about moving in with each other, we are hoping to move in with each before I give birth. We aren't sure how my dad will take the news of me moving out. I'm now 17 years old. I turned 17 on the eighteenth. Cole is 19.
But, I'm not going to mention anything about that right now because today is my baby shower. I'm so excited to celebrate my little girl, Bayleigh Everleigh. I walked downstairs with my twin sister, Harleigh. She's one of my best friends. I was wearing a pink dress with black flats. Screw high heels. I can't fit my fat feet in anything these days.
Cole and I haven't announced the name of our daughter yet. We are announcing her name today. The only person who knows is my aunt Maya.
Cody, my dad, helped me down the last step of the stairs. I smiled. "Thank you, Daddy."
Cody smiled. "You're welcome, Eve."
Everleigh hugged her uncle Zack, who smiled. "I'm so excited to meet my great niece. Does she have a name?"
Everleigh smiled. "She does. I won't say until it's cake time…"
Zack sighed. "Oh. I'm really dying to know her name…"
Everleigh laughed. "I know. I can't say. That's not fair to everyone else. But, all I can say is she is named after someone."
Zack smiled. "Is it me?!"
Everleigh shook her head. "No."
The baby shower went on as planned, we had barbecue food and drinks. After we ate, we went inside so I could open the presents. We have nothing right now. With Cole working a lot now, we can finally get a crib. I got plenty of clothes from newborn to three months, diapers, a play pen, shoes and many more things we'd need when she arrives. It was overwhelmingly worth baby stuff. I had a good time with my family and Cole's family. Finally, we were able to announce her name.
My aunt put the cake out and Cole and I smiled. "Her name is in honor of my mom, Bailey and me. In a few short weeks, you'll get to meet Bayleigh Everleigh!" I smiled.
My mom had tears in her eyes, she hugged me. "Oh, thank you, baby girl! I'm so honored to share my name with her."
Everleigh smiled brightly. "We plan on calling her Leigh for short."
Bailey smiled. "I love it."
Cody smiled. "She's already loved and she's not here yet…"
Cole smiled. "She's not dating until she's 18 and moved out…"
Everleigh stared at her boyfriend. "I think she has the right to choose, Cole, but I'll make sure she's on birth control when she does start dating…"
Cole paused, but agreed. "Okay, I can agree to that, I guess. I want her to be safe and not be having a baby at sixteen…"
Cody nodded. "That's understandable."
After the baby shower, Everleigh looked at her father. "Dad? Can I talk to you about something?"
Cody nodded. "Of course, Eve. What's on your mind?"
Everleigh took a deep breath. She didn't know how he'd take the news, but she knew she had to tell him. It is all about Bayleigh. "Dad, Cole and I think the best for Bay is if we move in with each other…"
Cody sighed deeply as he tried to wrap his head around the fact that Everleigh wants to move in with Cole. "Eve, I'm going to be honest with you. I don't think you should move in with him just yet. You only have been with him for eight months, honey. I don't think you're ready for that big step in your relationship. You're still getting to know each other."
Everleigh just sighed. "Dad, you don't understand. I'm about to give birth. I only have nine weeks until I give birth, if I make it to my due date…"
Cody took a moment to figure out what he's going to say. "Everleigh, you can't move in with him...You barely know him. He is just your baby's father. He can visit her, but you aren't moving in with him right now…"
Everleigh groaned. "Ugh. I don't want Cole to miss anything of Bayleigh's life! He is her dad! He has rights." She turned to her mom. "Mom, can you get him to understand, please?"
Bailey looked at her husband, but before she could say anything, Cody spoke up. "That's it, Everleigh. You're grounded. No seeing Cole for the rest of your pregnancy. Go upstairs. Now."
Everleigh's eyes went wide. "What?! That's not fair, Dad! Cole has rights towards being at my doctor's appointments!"
Bailey was upset with Cody too. "You're being unreasonable right now Cody. How could you do that to Everleigh?!"
Cody crossed his arms. "I'm your father. She has to listen to me. She's not 18 yet, Bailey."
Everleigh groaned as she ran out of the house. "This is so stupid!"
Harleigh her twin sister ran after her. "I agree, Eve, Daddy's being stupid and unreasonable right now."
Everleigh sighed. "I don't know what I'm going to do. I'm a nervous freaking wreck already, and now I have to tell Cole he can't come to my appointments anymore...It's bullshit, Harleigh."
Harleigh nodded her head. "I know..."
Everleigh sat on the step and sighed as she called Cole. She ran her fingers through her hair as the phone rang.
Cole picked up the phone. "Hey Ev, what's up, baby?"
Everleigh began crying. She sniffed. "My dad is being so unreasonable with me. He told me you can't come to my doctor's appointments for the rest of my pregnancy just because I wanted to move in with you for Bay's sake..."
Cole's eyes went wide. "What? That's bullshit. He could mind his own business instead of poking his nose in ours. Of course I'm gonna be there for you and Bay. I'm not happy with him right now."
Everleigh sniffed. "Neither am I, I'm so pissed and now stressed out. I can't let you miss the last few appointments of my pregnancy. You deserve to be there and I'm not letting you miss anything of Bayleigh's life. I'm not going through this last trimester without you."
Cole nodded his head. "I agree."
Everleigh sighed. "He can be pissed off as long as he wants. I'm not staying here anymore. I want Bayleigh to have a stable home with us."
Cole nodded his head. "Yeah."
Everleigh sighed as she stood up and then walked to her car. "I'll be your place in ten minutes..." She sighed. "If I can fit my very pregnant belly behind the wheel. God, she eats so much. I'm literally looking like I could pop now but I'm only 31 weeks..."
Harleigh looked concerned. "Sissy, are you okay to drive?"
Everleigh nodded. "Yeah. I'll be fine, Har. I'll see you later or when your niece makes her arrival..." She got into her car and sighed.
Harleigh nodded. "Alright."
Everleigh put her phone down and then told Cole she'd be on her way and then backed out of the driveway.
Harleigh walked into the house.
Cody looked at his daughter. "Where's Everleigh?"
Harleigh crossed her arms. "She left."
Bailey turned to Cody. "See! You made her so upset that she can't stay here. You are so unreasonable!"
Cody crossed his arms. "Well I'm right though. She's too young to be dating and having a baby."
Bailey sighed. "Well, it's a little too late. She's about to have a baby in two months. You can't stop her from doing what's best for her daughter and OUR grandchild."
Cody shook his head. "But I'm right though."
Harleigh shook her head. "Far from it. Are you going to stop talking to her or have her stop talking to you? By the way, you're acting with her is the proof."
Cody crossed his arms. "I don't like the way she's acting now. I don't want to talk to her right now because I'm right, Harleigh!"
Everleigh was in her car on the way to Cole's when she felt sharp pain in her back. She groaned as she pulled into Cole's driveway. She groaned in pain when she felt sharp pain in her lower belly. "Oh God. No. Not now." She grabbed her phone and texted Cole. "Come outside. Something is wrong."
Cole nodded and texted back. "Coming." He then rushed outside and over to her. "Is everything okay?"
Everleigh shook her head. "No...I think I'm in labor..."
Cole looked at her. "Are you sure?"
Everleigh nodded. "I think so. I think I had a contraction..."
Cole nodded. "We'll take my car. Come on." He helped her out of her car and they headed off to the hospital.
Massachusetts General Hospital
Everleigh was now in her hospital bed and sighed. "Ugh. This sucks. It's too early..." She groaned as she felt another contraction come. "I don't like this."
Cole sighed as he comforted his girlfriend. "I'm sorry babe."
Everleigh's doctor walked into the room. "So, I found the right medicine for you so you don't go into labor early. I want you on bed rest for the rest of your pregnancy. Most likely, I'll have you come in on June 17th."
Everleigh nodded. "Okay so I'll be induced?"
Her doctor nodded. "Yes. Unless Bay comes on her own..."
Cole nodded. "Thank you."
After the scare, Everleigh and Cole headed to his house so Everleigh could rest and be on bed rest for the next few weeks. They knew it was going to be overwhelming.
Seven Weeks Later
June 17, 2034
For the last seven weeks I've been on bed rest and I'm now 38 weeks pregnant with Bayleigh. I'm now nine months along. The past two months were the most slow moving, overwhelming and exciting. They were so slow because I've been on bed rest for the last seven weeks and everything was just so crazy. My uncle, aunt, cousins and sisters helped Cole put Bay's nursery together. I can't do anything. I feel completely helpless right now. My dad and I haven't spoken in two months. He was being so unreasonable and not understanding my situation. Hopefully when I have Bay, he will understand and talk to me again. After I got pregnant, I lost a lot of friends and I felt so lonely. I only had Harleigh, but she can go out to parties. I can't. I have a baby on the way. I can't be a teenager anymore.
It was time to head to the hospital to be induced. I'm nervous. It was five in the morning, I changed into sweats and put my hair up in a bun. Cole grabbed our hospital bags that I packed two weeks ago and we headed off to the hospital.
Massachusetts General Hospital, 5:30AM
It was around five thirty when we arrived at the hospital. I signed in and then was wheeled to my delivery room.
Now it's real. After I got comfortable in a hospital gown, my doctor started my labor with medication. I looked at Cole.
"How are you feeling?"
Cole sighed. "I'm nervous. How are you, babe?"
Everleigh sighed. "I'm nervous too. I'm overwhelmed right now, I'm not looking forward to the intense pain that comes with giving birth."
Cole kissed her head. "I'm right here. I'll do anything I can for you, okay?"
Everleigh nodded. "Okay. I love you…"
Cole leaned down and missed her. "I love you, baby."
Everleigh texted Harleigh. "In the hospital. Getting induced. Bayleigh should be here by tomorrow."
Harleigh texted her back. "Okay. Good luck, sis. I love you."
Everleigh texted her sister back. "I love you too."
For the next 24 hours, Everleigh went through intense contractions, Cole was there for the whole time. Helping her with the pain, she had an epidural to help numb things down there. She never felt so much pain in her life. It was now June 18th 2034, it was now 5:00AM. Everleigh groaned and moaned as she felt the need to push.
"Ugh! I need to push...Ugh! Oh, God…"
Cole nodded his head. "Okay. I'll go get your doctor, okay?"
Everleigh was feeling a lot of pressure when her doctor walked into the room with Cole. A nurse shut the door, and her doctor looked at Everleigh.
"Ready to have a baby, Everleigh?"
Everleigh nodded her head. "I'm so ready…"
Cole grabbed Everleigh's hand and Everleigh squeezed his hand back.
Everleigh's doctor looked at her. "I want you to push down as hard as you can, okay?"
Everleigh nodded her head as she began pushing as hard as she could. It was intense, she screamed and began crying intensely in pain. She squeezed Cole's hand.
"Ugh! It hurts!" Everleigh cried.
Everleigh's doctor nodded. "I know. You can do this. The baby's head is crowning. You are almost there, Everleigh."
Everleigh groaned and screamed in pain as she pushed harder. "Oh my God! I can't…"
Cole kissed her head. "You got this, babe. You can do this!"
Everleigh shook her head as she layed her head on her pillow. "No...I...I can't…"
Cole shook his head. "You are so close, baby girl. Don't give up."
Everleigh shook her head. "I...I…" After a minute of resting, she decided to get back to pushing. Around 5:45AM, Everleigh pushed one last time. She screamed on top of her lungs.
Bayleigh Everleigh Mathrews made her way into the world on June 18th 2034. She weighed 7 pounds and 8 ounces.
The Next Day
June 19, 2034
Cole's Apartment Complex
The day after Bayleigh came into the world, we were able to take her home for the first time. I was completely exhausted. I never experienced that much pain in my life. Cole had Bay in one hand and then he slowly helped me into our home.
My sisters, Rayne and Harleigh are coming to help me. I'm not sure if my parents are coming. It's been weeks since I've seen them.
Everleigh sighed as she sat slowly on the couch. "Ugh. I'm exhausted."
Harleigh and Rayne knocked on the door, Cole took Bayleigh out of her carrier and then opened the door.
Rayne smiled. "Awww! She's beautiful." She hugged her sister. "How are you feeling?"
Everleigh sighed. "Exhausted. My body is so sore."
Rayne sighed. "Oh, trust me, that's how I was after Rawlings was born. Has Dad talked to you?"
Everleigh shook her head. "No. I haven't spoken to him in 2 months. He hates me..."
Harleigh sighed. "Well, he actually wants to meet Bayleigh."
Everleigh took a deep breath. "I don't know, Har. Dad hates me, I'm not sure he will love her..."
Rayne sat down next to her sister. "Eve, do you want Bay to have a relationship with her grandpa?"
Everleigh shrugged her shoulders. "I do...but..." Before she could say anything, Cody and Bailey knocked on the door.
Cole just sighed as he opened the door. "Hi."
Bailey smiled at her daughter. "Awww, honey. She's beautiful."
Everleigh smiled softly. "Can I have a minute alone with Dad, please?"
Cole, Bailey, Harleigh and Rayne all nodded as they headed to the kitchen.
Cody sat down next to his daughter. "I'd like to apologize to you, Ev. I'm really sorry the way I treated you. I just wanted the best for you…"
Everleigh just nodded. "Do you ever think the best for me is being here with my boyfriend and my daughter? I don't want her to be back and forth everyday for the next five years…That's not fair to her…"
Cody sighed. "I know it's not fair. I was just mad at myself and I took my anger out on you…"
Everleigh was confused. "You were angry with yourself? Why?"
Cody sighed. "I wasn't listening to you. I was trying to keep you my baby forever. I didn't think about Bay. I was thinking about myself. I hurt your feelings and I was being selfish towards Cole. He is her dad and I can't keep Bay from not seeing him...I'm so sorry, Evie..."
Everleigh nodded. "Yeah..." She looked at him. "It's fine. I mean it's okay I know it hurts you that I'm growing up so fast but you've got to understand that I'm not a baby anymore. And besides I want you and Bay to have a relationship too..." She looked at him. "I'm sorry too."
Cody smiled as he hugged his daughter. "Can I meet her?"
Everleigh nodded. "Of course." She called for Cole. "My dad wants to meet Bay. Bring her over here."
Cole nodded as he brought Bay over to them. "Here." He gave her to Cody.
Cody smiled as he held Bayleigh. "She has your moms eyes..."
Bayleigh smiled and coos.
Everleigh nodded. "Yes, she does."
Bailey smiled. "I'm so honored you wanted to pass my name onto her. It fits her. She's a Bayleigh." She kissed her granddaughter's head.
Everleigh smiled. "Thanks, Mom."
Bailey smiled. "You're welcome Ev."
Everleigh sighed. "I never want to experience that kind of pain again for a long while."
Bailey nodded. "Alright."
Everleigh looked at her. "How did you do this so many times?"
Bailey laughed. "It was hell, but it was all worth it. I don't know how I did it to be honest."
Everleigh looked at her. "Really?"
Bailey smiled. "Yeah."
Everleigh nodded. "Okay. I hope I can also be as good as you as a mother to Bay."
Cody smiled. "I'm sure you will, sweetie. If Rayne can be a great mom to Rawlings, so will you. No new parent is perfect. That's my advice as a dad to you..."
Everleigh smiled. "Thank you, Daddy."
Later that night, 11:00PM
A few hours after Everleigh's parents, two sisters and Cole's parents came to see Bay for the first time, Everleigh and Cole spent a few hours taking care of their newborn daughter. It is now 11:00PM and they finally got to bed and then Bayleigh began crying again.
Everleigh groaned as she heard Bayleigh crying. She sat up in her and Cole's bed, reached over and picked up her daughter. She began rocking her in her arms. "Shhh, baby girl. I'm here…"
Bayleigh cried loudly, Everleigh rubbed her back and then handed her to Cole, so she could breastfeed her daughter. After feeding Bayleigh, Cole changed her diaper and changed her, Cole rocked his daughter to bed and layed her in the bassinet. They finally fell asleep around midnight.
Two Weeks Later
July 2nd, 2034
Cole and Everleigh's Apartment Complex
Two weeks after I gave birth to Bayleigh Everleigh, I'm getting used to our new schedule with the baby. We've been home all day since her birth and it's going to get more complicated when Cole goes back to work next week. I'm not looking forward to being home alone with Bay until I go back to school when she's six weeks old.
My sister, Harleigh and I have grown apart somehow in the last two weeks. Here's the thing: I got pregnant at 16, while she has the chance to go to parties and hang out with friends. I can't because I have a baby now.
Harleigh knocked on her sister's door, Everleigh opened the front door. "Hey."
"Hey." Harleigh said, walking inside. "So, how's Leigh?"
Everleigh smiled. "She's good. Um, how are you doing?"
Harleigh smiled. "I've been hanging with my friends more often, I guess. You've been real busy…"
Everleigh sighed. "I've changed, sis. I'm a mom now. I can't hang with my friends anymore…"
Harleigh crossed her arms. "We have grown apart so much. It's impossible to think we were so close before you got pregnant…"
Everleigh nodded. "I know…I hope you know I didn't mean to have us grow apart, Harleigh…"
Harleigh sighed. "I just wanted to clear the air with you because I miss you…"
Everleigh smiled softly. "Me too. I love you, Harls."
Harleigh hugged her sister. "I love you too, Ev."
Three Months Later
Monday, September 4, 2034
Three after I gave birth to Bayleigh, I'm finally going back to school. I'm overwhelmed with the fact I'm leaving my little girl for the first time since her birth. Cole has gone back to work and I've started a part time job a few weeks ago. Today I go back to school and I'm overwhelmed with the fact that I'm now a mom in high school. I drove Leigh, we now call Bayleigh Leigh more often than we call her Bay to daycare before heading to school.
Once I walked inside and headed to my locker I was met by my cousin, Kayden, his girlfriend, Kacie of two years and my sister, Harleigh.
Kayden smiled. "Hey cuz, how's mom life and how's Leigh?"
Everleigh smiled. "Leigh is doing well. Almost three months on the 18th and I'm getting used to being a mom but I'm always overwhelmed. It's not easy. I don't think it's good for anyone to have sex and have a baby young. I'm serious…"
Harleigh nodded. "Yeah."
Later that night
Everleigh sat in her bedroom and sighed.
I think nobody should have sex and have a baby at 17. It's not all fairytales and butterflies. It's so difficult. It's not easy to be a mom and a teenager at the same time. I don't want my daughter to think I never wanted her, I just really wish I waited to have her. You know, married and have a much more stable job before having a baby. My relationship with my sister has changed a lot since Leigh came into the world. We used to hang out everyday, but now I can't go to parties or go out anymore. I do miss my old life but I do regret my daughter at all. Cole and have gotten closer throughout these past few months. He's such a good dad to Bayleigh. I hope I can give my little girl the life she deserves.
Peace out ya'll.
