I rub her back reassuringly. “Two more minutes,” I tell her.
She nods but keeps her face pressed into the palms of her hands. She doesn’t want to look.
I don’t let her know that we don’t need the two minutes, and that the findings are already there and obvious.
Since Rachel still has two minutes of hope, I wait to tell her she is pregnant.
I keep massaging her back. She doesn’t turn to look at the results. I drop my head to the side of hers until my mouth is close to her ear.
“I’m so sorry, Rachel,” I whisper. “I’m so, so sorry.” She bursts into tears.
My heart is crushed at the sound. This is my fault. This is all my fault.
The only thing I can think to do now is figure out how to rectify it.
I turn her toward me and wrap my arms around her. “I’ll tell them you don’t feel well and you can’t go to school today. I want you to stay here until I get back.”
Me go back to the restroom, package the test, and tuck it behind the sink under the sink. I dash to my room to quickly change.
I’m gone most of the day.
When I finally pulled back up our driveway, I still had almost an hour before my father and Lisa were due home. I grab everything from my front seat and rush inside to check on her. Left my phone behind in my rush this morning, so I haven’t had a way to check on her at all, and I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t killing me.
I go inside.
Went to her door.
I attempt to turn it, but it’s locked.
I knock. “Rachel?”
I hear movement. Something crashes against the door, and I jump back. When I realize what’s happened, I step forward again and bang on the door. “Rachel!” I yell, frantic. “Open the door!”
I hear her crying. “Go away!”
I take two steps back, then lunge forward and shove my shoulder against the door as hard as I can. The door flies open, and I rush inside. Rachel is curled up against the headboard, crying into her hands. I reach her.
She pushes me away. I walk back to her.
She slaps me, then scoots off the bed. She stands up, shoving me back, pushing her palms against my chest. “I hate you!” she screams through her tears. I grab her hands and try to calm her down. It makes her angrier. “Just leave!” she yells. “If you don’t want anything to do with me, just leave!”
Her words stun me.
“Rachel, stop,” I plead. “I’m here. I’m not going anywhere.”
Her tears come harder now. She screams at me. She says I left her.
This morning, after putting her to bed, I had to leave her because I couldn’t bear it. I felt let down by her.
I love you, Rachel. More than I love myself
“Baby, no,” I tell her, pulling her to me. “I did not abandon you. I informed you that I would return.”
She didn’t understand why I left today, and I detest that.
I regret not explaining it to her.
She is placed against the headboard after I carry her back to the bed. Which is why I want to do everything I possibly can to turn this around for you. For us. That’s what I’ve been doing today. I’ve been trying to find a way to make this better for us.”
I stand up and grab the folders, then spread them out on the bed. I show
her everything. I showed her the family housing flyers I picked up from campus, the forms we need to complete for the free on-campus childcare, the financial aid flyers, the night classes, the online course review, the academic adviser list, and how everything would work with my flight and class schedule. All the possibilities are spread out before her, and I want her to see that even though we didn’t want this, even though we didn’t plan for this—we can do this.
“I know it’ll be a lot harder with a baby, Rachel. I know that. But it’s not impossible.” She stares down at everything I’ve laid out before her. I watch her in silence until her shoulders begin to shake and she covers her mouth with her hand. She meets my gaze as huge tears spill out of her eyes, crawls forward and throws her arms around my neck.
She tells me she loves me. You love me so much, Rachel. She kisses me over and over.
“We’ve got this, Miles,” she whispers against my ear. I nod and hug her back. “We’ve got this, Rachel.”
