I wake up in a strange car, Robbie sitting in the driver's seat. He smiled.
"Hey, sleepyhead." He says with a chuckle. "You fell asleep on the sofa at the clinic and I didn't have the heart to wake you.. You slept for two straight hours!" He grins even wider, and for some reason, my heart skips a beat. He's so handsome.. Yes, unconventionally, but still.. His brown hair sticks up and his large green eyes sparkle mischievously. He has a long, straight nose and a chiselled jaw.
"Thanks.." I murmur sleepily. I can't help but feel incredibly attracted to him. I mean, he's the first person to be nice to me since I broke up with Zach, not to mention the only guy who has given me a second glance since my pregnancy started to show. I was now five months pregnant, after all and my stomach was bulging.
"So, where's your house?" He asked.
"Ughhh.." I couldn't help but groan. I didn't feel up to facing the awkwardness of family dinner.
"What's up?" He asked, real concern in his eyes, "Is it the baby?"
"No. It's my parents... They're acting like I'm carrying the spawn of the devil at the moment.. I can't face up to family dinner..."
"Well, why don't you come back to mine? I can order a take out!" He grinned.
"Oh, that's really kind but-" I started.
"No. I insist." He interjected. "I'll pay. You don't have to worry about paying me back either."
"Really? Thank you!" I cried, tears beginning to gush down my cheeks.
"Jess? What's wrong?" He murmured, turning my face towards his. "Why are you crying?"
"Pregnancy mood swings.." I sniffed, wiping my eyes with the increasingly tatty sleeve of my new XL gap hoodie. "Its.. just.. You're the first person to be nice to me since I broke up with Zach, and I feel so alone, and you're just being so nice.. I can't handle it.." I gabbled, not sure why I had let it all gush out.
"Zach? I'm guessing he's the baby's father?" I nodded. "Jess-jess, it's OK. I'm not going to abandon you because of circumstances you can't really help."
"Stop pitying me!" I cried, suddenly angry. "I don't want your PITY!" I spat.
He sighed. "I.. I don't pity you. In fact.. I sat down next to you because you're a really hot babe.. I was so sad when I found out you were pregnant.. I thought you would still be with the father.. My heart soared when I found out you were available.. I want to take care of you. Of both of you." He finished, blushing.
He took my chin in his hand and turned my face up toward his. Then he kissed me. I kissed him back, sliding my arms around his neck and feeling my bulging stomach bash against his flat one. He broke off.
"How about that take out?"
