Tara was sixteen when she discovered she was pregnant with Matt's baby. However everyones reactions wasn't one of delight and her parents threatened her with either an abortion or moving out.
Six years later and Tara has made the best out of herself- a wonderful mum to Daniella and working for an advertizing agency. When Danniella's dad, Matt, wants to go back to Tara what will she do?
The sixteen year old sat on the side of the bath, taking deep breaths barely controlling her excitement and fear. Four tests had all proven Tara to be pregnant. She was so happy that her and Matt could become a proper family, everyone had said that they were made for each other. A loud rap on the bathroom door shocked Tara so much that she dropped the box and nearly fell onto the floor.
"Tara? Tara are you in there?"
"Yes mum, I am. Just coming out", Tara quickly hid all the test boxes and opened the door to reveal her mother.
"What were you doing in there?" Her mother, Celia, said sounding exhasperated.
"Well...I know this isn't really the place to say, but", she took a deep breath and said, "I'm pregnant." For a whole minute Tara's mother didn't say a word. Then slowly she whispered,
"Pregnant?" Shock showed in them critical blue eyes and next thing Tara knew, she had been slapped across the face. A single tear rolled down Tara's face and she shouted to her mother,
"What are you doing? Mum stop it", again and again her mother slapped her, they were sharp, angry slaps that echoed in the bathroom.
"Get out now", hissed Celia, "You leave here and I won't shame your father. Go NOW!"
Tara ran out of the bathroom and threw random assortments of clothes into a rucksack. She grabbed all of her money and went down the stairs to the front door.
"Please Mum", Tara begged, but when Celia didn't give a response, she left the house with tears cascading down her red cheeks.
Hundreds of thoughts raced through Tara's mind as she practically ran through the streets. She had to go see Matt first. He was the father and they had been going out for the past two years. Tara rapped loudly on the door and Matt's mother, Georgia opened it with a wide smile on her face.
"Tara, how are-". Georgia took in her tear stained face, swollen eyes and red cheeks. "What's wrong honey?"
"Is Matt there?"
"Yes. He is in his room. Whatever it is that is wrong, I'm sure it will work out for the best."
Tara headed up to Matt's room and opened his door. Matt lay on his bed, dark brown hair laying flat on his head, still wet from the shower.
"Hi", mumbled Tara. Matt's face broke into a smile and he immediatley got up to hug Tara.
"Tara, why are you crying?"
"I'm pregnant", she gabbled. Matt's face turned from happy to angry then hurt.
"It isn't mine You've been cheating on me. Oh my God, how long have you-
"It's yours. There is no way that this could belong to someone else."
"Well I don't want it and I don't want you. Your a slut and no-one would every want to be with you ever again". Tara left the housed with the tears pouring harder than ever and she made the decision to move well away from everyone.
