I hoped into Emmy's car as she pulled up in front of me. She
smiled at me. "How are you feeling?" She asked as I sat down next
"A little better. I don't feel as sick. I had breakfast but I'm
still hungry." I sighed buckling my seatbelt.
"That's good. I would rather be hungry than sick." He smiled at
me driving to a local dinner. "I know I was starving when I was
pregnant with Asher." She said pulling in to the dinner's parking
lot. My heart dropped. What if it really wasn't Tanner's baby?
Emmy looked at me. "You just turned deadly pale what's wrong?"
"What if this isn't Tanner's baby?" I whispered the fear coming
back to me. Emmy looked at me from where we sat looking at the
"Why would you thing that?" She asked smiling as the waitress
brought over our drinks.
"I don't know everything. I just don't feel right. I feel like
Owen is haunting me from prison. He is ruining one of the things
I really love right now. I don't know what to do." She put her
hand over mine.
"Let's find out if you're pregnant before we get into this. The
less stress the better." I nodded but still put my face in my
hands. I was so nervous. I was going to see if I really was
pregnant and whose baby it really is. I looked up as the waitress
put the food down causing my stomach to growl. I dove in eating
away at all my food. When I was done Emmy was looking at my empty
"What?" I asked wiping my mouth.
"You had more food than I did, and you ate all of yours as I ate
about ¾ of mine. And yet you ate also before this too." She
scrunched up her nose.
"I was hungry." I shrugged.
"You eat like your brother." She shook her head. I looked at the
clock on my phone and sighed.
"Come on we should get going if we want to be on time for the
doctor." I threw some money down for my half as Emmy put her
"Yeah we should get going." We walked out to the car and drove
silently to the hospital. My stomach was in knots as I waited in
the waiting room to be called. I see why they call it the waiting
room, but the lease they can do is make the chairs comfy to sit
in. I was shifting so uncomfortable the Emmy smacked me to top
me. I couldn't tell if I was nervous about what was happening or
if the chair was that uncomfortable. I think it was a mix of
both. When the nurse called my name Emmy had to pull me up
because I was so nervous. She took my hand in hers as it started
to shake. All I could wish was for Tanner to be here. "Come on
Ry it will be okay, don't worry about it." I nodded numbly as she
sat in the chair waiting as I sat on the table.
"Sure, sure." I said closing my eyes to come myself down. My head
was suddenly pounding fiercely. I felt sick. Really sick like I
was going to-. I cut my self off as I grabbed the garbage can and
threw up violently into it. I hated it as it burned my throat as
it came out. I held my breath as my stomach kicked a fit at me
jerking me till I puked again. I didn't move till I was sure I
was done and when I did there was a nurse holding a napkin for
"Here sweetheart. Let me take this." She took the bag out, tying
it in a note, before replacing it with a new one. I weakly got up
and laid down on the bed type chair to weak to really move. I
hated throwing up. It was horrible. I always got weak at the end
making it even worse. I closed my eyes drifting into sleep when I
felt warm lips pressed on my forehead. I opened my eyes to see
Tanner standing there in full uniform smiling at me.
"Hey how are you feeling?" He asked putting a piece of hair
behind my ear.
"A little better since I puked but still weak." He nodded sitting
down in a chair that I didn't know was there. "What are you doing
here? I thought you were on duty till noon." I asked knowing it
was 10 to 12.
"Emmy called saying that you got sick so I called the guy who was
taking over for me when my shift was over and he came early so I
could be here for you. You have been sleeping for a while now." I
looked at my arm and sure enough there was a band-aid that wasn't
there when I went to sleep. I looked back at Tanner in question.
"They took some blood to make sure you really are pregnant
because it says in your records that urine tests in your family
aren't always right. It what the doctor said." He said putting
his hands up in surrender. I nodded kissing his wrist which was
connected to the hand that was stroking my hair.
"I love you." I whispered.
"I love you too Baby doll." He smiled kissing me. I looked to see
Emmy gone. "She went to work they needed her so she left a little
after I got here." I nodded as the door knocked. The doctor
walked in with my file in her hands. She smiled at me.
"Good to see you up. Now I ran the blood work for a pregnancy
test and it indeed came back positive so you are in fact pregnant
Miss Banks." I took a deep breath not knowing what to feel. I
looked at her as she read on. "I want to do an ultra sound now to
see how far along and everything if that's okay with you." She
asked looking up. I nodded.
"Of course. When will I have it?" Tanner squeezed my hand.
"I already have a room open for you to go into. If you could just
come with me." We fallowed her to an ultra sound machine as I
laid down on the bed. Pulled my t-shirt up as the machine jumped
to life. She squeezed the gel on my stomach moving it around. I
squeezed Tanner's hand as the doctor looked at me. "Now would you
look at that?" She said……..
