2:4 In It For Life
Mercedes told her friend about how she'd been sick all morning, and had had to keep running from her room to the bathroom. Morgana agreed they needed to talk and the two went inside. Mercedes politely asked Jackson to go out for the rest of the day so she could have a 'girly day' with her friend. He agreed and rushed off to Lisas' house.
"I may as well tell you now, Jack." She sighed "I'm pregnant. I'm not sure what this means for my degree, or our living situation, but there's no point hiding it from you." Jackson was shocked. He wasn't sure whether to feel happy for her, or sorry for her that she was now stuck with a part of him for life. Mercedes read his expression. "Don't worry about me." She smiled. "Me and Morgana have already talked most of the stuff through today. And I don't expect you to know what to say or how to feel, but you need to know because there will be a lot of changes."
"And I'll be here to help you, Mercy. You've been a friend to me since I moved here, and made me feel welcome from the start. I'll help you even if you have to move out." Mercedes started to well up.
"That's so sweet, Jack. Lisa is so lucky to have you." She sighed, wiping a tear away from her cheek "Oh, if you were a few years older she'd have to worry." she joked, attempting a smile.
"Come on Chris, pick up!" After a couple of tries she realised he wasn't going to speak to her.
Yes, that was Jackson doing the stride of pride as he got home... Not sure how well you can see his face, but he's grinning like an idiot haha!
