I didn't think this could happen to me. I thought we were careful. How am I going to tell my parents and sister? I can't even look at them.
I walked inside and the first person I see is my dad. I say hi to him but I can't look him in the eye, Then I see my mom. I say hi to her too but I walk straight to my room.
I lied on my bed and started to cry. I just played there and thought of everything that happened. That's when my little sister walks in my room.
She walked in and lied right next to me. She was 13 and I was 17. We did everything together. We went to dance together. We talked about everything, She looked up to me... Not anymore.
A couple days later I couldn't hold it inside me anymore. I had to tell my parents. I went up to them and sat them down. I then said, "I'm pregnant."
My dad looked at me and started getting upset and yelling. Telling me I had a future in front of me. I had my whole dance career in front of me. I had a scholarship waiting for me.
I started crying and that's when my mom came up to me and hugged me. She did't say anything. I didn't say anything.
I sat my sister down and told her I was pregnant. She seemed ok, if not happy. She said that she was going to be the best aunty she could be.
Now that I told everyone, there was him. The one I didn't want to face. The one worse then my parents... The father.
I called him and asked him if I could come over and talk to him. A couple hours later I went to his house and told him.
He told me he couldn't do it. He couldn't be a father. I drove home and started crying. He didn't want this child. It's his child, how could he not want it?
I went to the only person I could trust. My best friend Ezra. I told him everything and he said he was going to be there for me. He told me when I first started dating the father not to trust him
But I didn't listen because I was too in love with him.
One Year Later...
My beautiful baby boy, Mason Ezra Taylor, is now 4 months old.
I couldn't believe that I'm a single mother at age 18 but it turned out ok. My family is super supportive and Ezra is still my best friend.
I think of all the opportunities I would've had if I didn't have Mason but I wouldn't trade a day for that life again.
