|This is a bit of a typical story on abortion, romance, and the well-know teenage mom, dna-dad story.|
Margo sat in the chair, in the waiting room of the hospital. How she hated the hospital- the way it smelled like chemicals and the way it felt like no one was healthy but her. It felt like she was trapped in a pool of disease and there was going to be no escape-she was sure to catch something....but none the less, she had promised Dana that she'd be supportive of her, after all Dana was her best friend. Yet, she couldn't believe that Dana, at age sixteen, was delivering a baby. And the father? Dana had no idea. It was a hectic week for them all- the entire last 2 years had been chaotic. It had started two years ago, when the school had held the 8th Grade Valentine's Dance. Margo had gone with Ryan Logan and Dana, after breaking up with Nate Marl had attended with hunky Adam Teller. Nate and Dana had been on for three months, but Nate had decided he was more interested in the sexy new girl, Camden Moore. So Adam, who'd evidently been crushing on Dana for a length of time, had asked her to be his Valentine. Ryan, on the other hand, was more of a good friend than a date, though they did share a kiss at the end of the evening. Margo's boyfriend, Mark Aarons, lived about 50 miles away. She and Mark had dated when she attended that school, and when she departed they decided to stick it out until whenever. Mark, as loving as he was, was no doubt messing with other girls while he had the chance. And no one could say otherwise for Margo. The Valentine's Dance had been a boring night, and afterwords the four decided to head to the local Park and hang out. Lisa Clark, Matt Yoran, Jennie Clint, Sal Bridge, Denise Russo, and Kyle Everett decided to tag along as well. The group sat around by the pond and in the moonlight began a no-boundaries game of Truth Or Dare. The girls, a little less adventurous than the guys, held onto their "truths" and once in awhile exclaimed "Dare." Margo, who was less adventurous than anyone had decided to show them all up and say "Dare" in the No-consequence, No-boundary round. And she'd righteously been demanded to jump into the pond-naked. Of course, if she didn't want to be stripped and thrown in she had to do it herself. And she did. Following suit, Dana allowed to be dared-and she was dared to go all the way with Adam. Adam didn't mind, and neither did she-so they did. Two weeks later Dana had phoned Margo, hysterically crying. She was pregnant. The two girls together discussed the options and what to tell Adam. It came down to an abortion-and keeping the truth from Adam. Dana scheduled and appointment, and went through with the abortion. She never told Adam, as the girls had vowed not to do. And Margo had been scared to even kiss a guy for weeks thereafter....neither girl would play Truth Or Dare for atleast 6 months. Adam had stayed with Dana up until now, and had not been aware of Dana's sideline boyfriend. Chris Vere was nothing special-but Dana had told Margo he could put on a show in bed. It scared Margo that even after the scary pregnancy that Dana was sexually active-too sexually active. Margo had vowed never to have sex with a man unless she was married to him-not only because of her religion, which she scarcely followed, but because of Dana's Truth Or Dare pregnancy accident. It had always been a thought whisked away-don't have sex until marriage-until that had happened. But Dana's attitude seemed more like "I had once abortion-I can have another." And exactly nine months ago another frantic phone call for Margo-from Dana. It wasn't hard to guess she was pregnant-but what really scared Dana was she didn't know who the father was-Adam or Chris. That had sent the two girls off into a spinning universe of confusion. Margo had been Dana's friend since they were kids-though Margo had lived 50 miles away. Still, that hadn't stopped their mothers and fathers from meeting for dinner on every Saturday night-a ritual that had been started nearly two years before the girls were born. And that was how Margo and Dana had met-and continued an ever-growing friendship. It was Margo's duty to stay loyal and support Dana throughout this. And now here she was, in the hospital waiting room as Dana was in room 520 delivering this baby. And she knew the baby would be whisked right away for a DNA test. Morgan's eyes ventured to two male figures sitting across the waiting room. She rose from her chair and sat between them...she looked into Chris's eyes, and then Adam's. She realized something suddenly...Chris's eyes were blue and Adam's were brown-she thought about both guy's parents-whom she'd met at a parents-students Click here to read the rest of this story (69 more lines)
