This is MAJOR News
Two months later
I'm just stared at the pregnancy test, three to be exact. "Oh
fuck, oh fuck!" I kept saying. Somebody knocked on the bathroom
door, and I knew it's Kane.
"Baby, is everything okay in there? You've been in there for a
half hour!" Kane said and I ran my hands through my hair. I
grabbed the other box and dumped three more pregnancy tests onto
the countertop. Do I even have enough piss to do three
"Uh, not feeling too hot, Kane. Give me a few minutes," I said
and as soon as I heard him leave the area, I grabbed a clean cup
and peed in it. I dunked the three pregnancy tests and lined them
up on the counter. I threw the first three away and stood there
with my arms crossed. Five minutes later, all three of them had
the word "pregnant" in the results window. That makes 6 positive
pregnancy tests. I don't think I need to go to the health
department to make #7. I slid down the counter and into the floor
and began to cry. I heard the door opened and I looked up and
Kane is staring down at me. "Baby, what's wrong?" Kane said and
got on the floor with me. I pulled the three tests I recently
took and the three I threw away. He grabbed them and looked at
each one of them individually. "Y-you're pregnant?" He
"Looks like it, if six pregnancy tests says I am, I think I am!"
I said and wiped my nose on the back of my hand.
"I mean, I am happy that you are, but…what about you?" I just
looked at him and then finally smiled. He was the one I worried
about. I hoped that he would accept my pregnancy, and he
"I am happy, too," I said and leaned against him. We stayed quiet
for a few moments and he kissed my forehead.
"What do we do now?" Kane finally spoke up.
"I guess make an appointment with an OB/GYN and get the due date
and then, tell my parents. You need to tell your family too,
Kane," I said and he looked away.
"I have not spoken to Father since I left Yale. Why would he want
to talk to me now?"
"Well, he is gonna be a grandfather, and he should know." I
touched his stubbed cheek and leaned over and kissed him. "I love
you, Kane, he should know." He nodded and kissed me back.
"I love you, too, baby, I guess I can call him."
I haven't talked to my father, Oscar Sheppard, in almost ten years. I went to the office and Rose is behind me, and I found the number of my father's new place. My mother sent to me by email, hoping I will talk to him. I never felt so nervous in my life. "You can do it baby, while you do this, I will make the appointment," Rose said and kissed me before she left the room. I dialed the number and I heard his voice answer. "Sheppard residence?" Father answered and I sighed.
"Hello Father," I said and he gasped.
"Kane? Is that you?"
"Yes, it's me…so how are things up there?" I never felt so
awkward in my life, other than trying to come up with a way to
ask Rose on our first date.
"Fine son, just fine, so what is the pleasure of this call? I
haven't heard your voice in over nine years."
"I have some news for you, and it will shock you." I closed my
eyes and fought back the tears. I really miss my father, more
than I expected. With talking to him and the excitement of
becoming a father, I feel like exploding with tears.
"Well, spit it son!" Father said and I sighed.
"You are going to be a grandfather. My girlfriend, which I love
more than life itself, found out she is pregnant this morning," I
said and the other end went silent.
"Kane? Is everything okay?" Rose said and I didn't even hear the
door open. I just nodded and waited on my father to speak
"Well, son, I am shocked that you decided to call me after this
long to tell me this news. I am happy that I am going to be a
grandfather and your mother will be very happy with the news. Are
you planning to make a trip to Hartford soon?" I looked over at
Rose and she is smiling at me.
"Possibly, I would love for you to meet Rose," I said and I can
hear my father smile.
"I am sure she is a delight to meet. I have to get off son, your
mother has a meeting at the country club. I love you, son, sorry
about not agreeing with your decision. I know you are highly
successful and I am proud of you." That broke me right there, I
longed for those words from him. I looked up and the tears came
out of my eyes.
"I love you, too, Dad. I will call later on today," I said and
got off the phone. Rose stood in front of me and wrapped her arms
around me, holding me and letting me cry.
"I waited almost ten years to hear him say that. He is proud of
me, I wanted to hear him say that," I said and she ran her
fingers through my hair. I feel like an idiot for crying.
"Cry it out, Kane, it's okay. We all need a cry here and there,"
Rose said and we sat in the seat and she held me in her arms as I
cried like a baby. When I finally calmed down, she wiped my tears
off my cheeks with her thumbs and she has a serious
"The appointment is in two hours and we got another thing to
conquer," She said and I knew right then what that "thing" is,
"We are suppose to go on a double date with your parents tonight,
do you think we should tell them over dinner?" I asked her and
she shrugged her shoulders.
"it's a fair field, he cannot do anything to us in a public
place, so yeah, we will tell them there."
"Miss Scott, you are six weeks pregnant, so you are due in Late November," Dr. Ricardo said and we smiled. We get to come back in a month and hear the heartbeat, the baby is too little for us to hear his heart. "The baby is very good in size, perfect for his gestation age. Just maintain your weight gain and take your prenatal vitamins daily. Also, review the list of medications you can and cannot take. No large amounts of alcohol, lower your intake on sodas. Congratulations you two!" The male doctor smiled at us and Kane shook his hand. We are suppose to meet her parents in two hours, so we have all that time to plan.
On the way back to the loft, Rose sighed and then touched her
stomach. She is glowing, like a pregnant mother should. "He will
have your hair and eyes if it's a boy and my hair and eyes if
it's a girl," I said and she laughed.
"I want the baby to look like you if it's a girl or a boy!" We
both laughed and we walked into the loft and we sat around until
it was time to go. When Rose went to the bathroom to put on some
makeup, I reached for the drawer and pulled out a velvet box. I
opened it and a engagement ring is in there. It was my
grandmother's, mom gave it to me to hope someday I will give it
to my future wife. Rose is my life, I want her to be my wife. I
plan to propose to her in front of her parents right before we
announce the pregnancy. "Kane, you ready to go?" Rose said as she
walked out the bathroom and I put the ring box in my coat.
"Yeah, are you?" I asked her and she sighed.
"Ready as I can be. I know Mom will be happy for us. It's Daddy I
am worried about," she said and I nodded.
"I don't think he will do much, probably freak out, but then be
happy for us." I hope he will be happy for us, because I am this
"Hey baby girl," Daddy said and I reached over and hugged him. He let go and gave me a weird look. "Kane's housekeeper must be feeding you good, you've gained some weight!"
"She is a good cook!" I said and Kane nodded. He just shook
Kane's hand and Mom kissed both of our cheeks. We walked in and
we all ordered something to drink, but I ordered some sparking
"No red wine for you?" Daddy asked, giving me a questioning
"Not in the mood for wine tonight," I said and he nodded. The
waiter came back and took our food orders and gave us or drinks
and I looked up at Kane and he smiled and gave me a quick
"So, how are things with the two of you?" Mom asked and I smiled
"Great, I've never been happier," I said and Kane smiled really
big. The violin players came over to us and surrounded us. Mom
and Daddy grabbed each other hands and gave each other blissful
looks. I hope someday Kane and I be like that someday. I heard a
chair move and the whole room of talking got quiet. I looked
beside me and Kane is on his knee. I looked over at Daddy and Mom
and they both are staring at Kane.
"Rose Scott, I love you more than life itself. You're my very
breath in my lungs, my heartbeat, my blood that runs in my veins.
Rose, will you do the honor…" He reached into his jacket pocket
and pulled out a beautiful antique diamond ring. I covered my
mouth and tears flow out of my eyes. "To be my wife? Rose, will
you marry me?" The room got quiet and my parents are stunned
right now. I cried and I nodded my head.
"Yes!" I squeaked out and the room roared with cheer. I threw
myself on top of him and kissed him. "I love you so much!" I said
and he kissed me back. I can feel dampness against my cheek that
came from him. He is crying too!
"I love you, too, Rose, so much!" He said and we finally got back
to our seats and then we looked at our parents. Mom is wiping her
eyes because she cried and Daddy is sitting with his arms
crossed. Is he happy or mad, I don't know.
"Oh, that was so romantic!" Mom said and hiccupped a cry. "I am
so happy for you, Rose!" I smiled then Daddy finally grew a small
"I never seen you so happy, Rosie. I am happy for the two of you
as well," Daddy said and I smiled and leaned across the table and
hugged my parents at the same time. When I let go, Kane cleared
his throat and then, I had to tell them.
"Well, we got more news for you…" I grabbed Kane's hand and I
sighed. "You two are going to be grandparents!" I said and Daddy
spit his wine out of his mouth and he looks…angry?
"What did you just say?" Daddy said through his teeth and my
heart squeezed and Kane squeezed my hand.
"I am six weeks pregnant," I said and Daddy's angry gaze went
straight to Kane.
"WHAT THE FUCK DID YOU DO, KANE?" The next thing I seen was Daddy
diving on top of the table and went straight for Kane.
"KANE!" I screamed as I watched my fiancée gets tackled by my own
"BRENT!" Mom wailed as her husband took a dive at her future son-in-law.
