Thanks for you reviews :D

"I reacted like that because every time I saw you with him, every time I saw you two holding hands, I wished I was there instead of him. Every time I saw you two kiss, it felt like my blood was on fire. Every time I saw you two battling side-by-side, it made my chest ache to be out there with you, keeping you safe from harm instead of him. The truth is, Scarlet," Talon took my clammy hand. "I love you."

I felt my face heat up as the words finally made it through my thick skull. He loves me? I shut my eyes and put my chin on my chest. It just couldn't be true. We were barely even friends- wait, 'friends' didn't even cut it. We weren't even acquaintances. He barely even knew me…

But you felt the same way towards him, not six months ago…

I bit my bottom lip and realized that my cheeks were wet from tears. Stupid, annoying, friggin' mood swings.

I let out an annoyed sigh and covered my face with my hands, hoping that for once, someone wouldn't see what I was really feeling inside - scared. What was I going to do with Talon? Or Connor for that matter? What about the baby? Connor wouldn't remember or even know since I hadn't told him before…

I realized that that was going to need to change - soon. I had to tell him about the kid.

I had to tell him about his baby.

As if on cue, I saw the boy himself stir from his deep slumber and yawn. I knew Talon's eyes were on me as I got up and walked between my friends' bodies towards Connor, careful not to step on anyone. I offered him a small smile before sitting down next to him. Connor smiled back.

"You sleep well?" My words sounded gravelly, like I'd been smoking. Or crying. I sighed inwardly, but kept my face clear of emotion.

"Yeah," Connor replied after shooting me a glance. "Whudd'ya up to?" I frowned for a split second before putting on a plastic smile.

"I wanted to tell you something, something you may or may not remember." Connor nodded once. I swallowed, but my mouth felt like a desert. "Do you remember the time we were both at your house?" My face burned. "I mean, the time I was having one of my episodes and I fell asleep, like, right after?" Connor's purple gaze locked onto my face, like he was trying to read my mind.

"And you were screaming bloody murder in your sleep." I cringed.

"Yeah…" Silence hung in the air for a few moments before I continued. "Do you remember what you asked me?" Connor looked at the ground, eyebrows furrowed.

"I asked you… I asked you if you were… pregnant?" I nodded as Connor glanced at me.

"Yes, Connor, yes. And do you remember my answer?" He shook his head 'no'. "Well…" Before I could change my mind, I blurted it out. "I said no to you. It was a lie. Connor, you're gonna be a daddy."
