Chapter 19 – I do
“can you believe Jason knows what a pageboy is and he’s only five” said Mike the next day “aww yeah, he’s so clever” I said smiling “what’s the plan today as your last time as Miss Harmer?” asked Mike “oh I don’t know but me and Max are going to go into dad’s office” I said “why?” asked Mike “because mum and dad are hiding something and Max thinks there might be clues” I said “to what?” asked Mike “to what they are hiding” I said “what are they hiding?” asked Mike “I don’t know” I said “you could ask them” suggested Mike “we can’t” I said sounding sad “oh why?” asked Mike “because mum left” I said sounding sad “oh no T, I’m so sorry” said Mike giving me a hug “don’t be draft you idoit, it’s okay” I said “why did she leave?” asked Mike “because dad stood up for me because mum is ashamed of me because I am pregnant and I should be in university” I said sounding upset “that’s awful, so horrible” said Mike “yeah” I said causally “are you okay?” asked Mike “just about” I said “I’m here for you” said Mike “thank you” I said “how’s Max doing?” asked Mike “not really sure” I said sounding worried “why don’t you ask him?” asked Mike

*
“Hey Maxie” I said “hey T” said Max “how are you doing? Are you okay?” I asked “Just about but how are you? This is about you not me” said Max “I’ll be okay, it’s going to be okay. We don’t need mum” said Max “I love you” I said “I love you too” said Max “good” said Max “he-he” I said “do you know if dad is going to be okay?” asked Max “I don’t know” I said sounding worried and started to cry “come here T, it’s going to be okay. Just let me be the big brother for a while eh?” said Max “Max this is my entire fault” I said “T, don’t say that” said Mike “why not? It’s the truth” I said “T, this is not your fault. Mum shouldn’t be ashamed or embarrassed because you are pregnant, she should be proud and happy for you because you dervese a happy ending more than anyone I know. Mum is the only one who is ashamed, dad is happy and excited for you and so am i. we’re both so happy for you and Mike to start this new chapter together so don’t ever say that this is your fault. You know whose fault this is? Its mum’s. She was the one who left. But we don’t need her okay? You promise me, don’t say that this is your fault because it isn’t” said Max. I looked at him, shocked at what he said but smiled at him and we hugged “I love you Maxie” I whispered “I love you too” said Max “but are you okay?” “yeah, 38 weeks” I said grinning “I’m so excited” said Max “me too” I said smiling “I’m so excited about my wedding too, I just really wanted mum to be there you know” I said “I know you did but isn’t she coming?” asked Max “no” I said upset “why not?” asked Max “because she can’t stand seeing me pregnant appartenly” I said shoving my shoulders like I didn’t have a care in the world but then was in tears. Max looked at me and smiled at me, bent down and wiped my eyes “we don’t need her” he said “I ruined everything, why did I tell mum? Why Max? Why did I ruin everything? I asked “Ssh it’s okay; it’s not your fault T. Personally I think dad derveses better but seriously Tess, we love you and don’t think this is your fault because it’s not okay?” said Max “okay big bro” I said poking my tongue out “good girl, I love you lil sis” said Max “I love you too big bro” I said

“I do, I do, I do, I do” I said repeatly “you do it perfectly” said Lynette “thank you” I said “you do, do it perfectly T, you are going to look so beautiful in your wedding dress and we’re so happy that you are going to be our sister in law, we’re never like any of Mike’s girlfriends but we do like you, we love you and we are so excited to meet your daughter but Mike told us about your mum and we think it’s really harsh honestly honey we do” said Lynette and Susan smiling at me “aww that’s so sweet, Mike’s had other girlfriends? I do? Aww you guys, you are so sweet! Yeah but we can’t choose our families can we? But I’m okay. Max and I used to hate each other, we would fight about everything, sometimes all day and everyday. He made my life miserable and I’d hated him so much. But when I moved away, I realised that, he only made my life miserable because he didn’t want me to move away. Bless him but look at us now, we’re talking and we live together and he is just amazing. He’s my best friend. But I’m going to be okay I promise” I said “yeah he’s had 4 other girlfriends but they’re never been this serious as you guys are. Yes you do, do it perfectly and it’s the truth, unfortunately we can’t. Are you sure?” asked Susan sounding worried “oh well, Mike’s never told me? We are serious? Aw su, thank you and yes I am sure thank you. Max is looking after me so is Mike” I said “mike doesn’t talk about them because it hurts too much, so I wouldn’t worry about it. Have you had any other boyfriends? I bet you have, as you are so pretty. You guys are serious, you are having a baby? And you are getting married? You can’t be more serious than that. Okay well we’re all here for you. Max is looking after you?” asked Lynette “no, Mike is my first ever boyfriend, I’ve had dates but Max has always ruined them. Aww thank you, I am so happy to hear that. Thank you and yes he is” I said grinning “Max?!” asked Susan “yes” I said “your brother?!” asked Lynette “no, my cousin, of course my brother” I said sounding sarcastic “but you said he’s a pain and you hate him because he made your life miserable?” asked Lynette “yeah but he’s grown up now and he only made my life miserable because he didn’t want me to move away and I don’t hate him, he’s my best friend and he’s my big brother” I said “I thought he was younger than you” said Susan “he is younger than me but he said to let him be the big brother for a while so I’m letting him, it’s really sweet don’t you think” I said “aww bless him, that’s so sweet” said Lynette smiling at me “we think that mum and dad are hiding something but we don’t know what and we are going to look into dad’s office because Max thinks there might be clues in there but I cannot find him anywhere. Do you know where he is?” I asked “um, yeah I think he is with Ben and the twins” said Lynette “which twins?” I asked “Bree and Gabbi” said Susan “and where are they?” I asked “kitchen” said Susan “okay thank you, I’ll see you later?” I said. They both nodded and I rushed downstairs and ran to the kitchen

*
“Max, there you are!” I said as I went into the kitchen “hello lil sis” said Max “little sister?” asked Bree “I thought he was your little brother?” asked Bree “he is” I said “then why oh I’m so confused please explain” said Gabbi “I will later Gabs I promise but Max, we’re got to do that thing, you know that thing I’m talking about” I said. Max thought for a moment
“Oh yes, I do, we will see you later” he said to Bree and Gabbi and we rushed off
*
When we got to dad’s office, I had a look out to see if he was in there. He wasn’t “he’s not in there, let’s go” I said and we went in
“So what exactly are we looking for?” I asked “clues to what mum and dad are hiding silly. Remember?” asked Max “oh yeah, yeah I remember now” I said now remembering
*
While we were looking for clues, Mike and my dad were in the living room, bonding
“Mike, can I tell you something?” asked Mr Harmer “of course, anything Mr Harmer” said Mike “please call me Craig, Mr Harmer makes me sound old. But don’t tell Tess or Max. They can’t find out. You have to stick to your word okay” said Mr Harmer sounding serious “okay I promise” said Mike. Mike always keeps his promises. “Well Max and Tessa, they have a” said Mr Harmer “a big sister” he finished

*
“Have you found anything yet T?” asked Max. I opened a drawer and found a picture of a girl with dad. I stared at it not realising Max had asked me a question “T?” asked Max “what is it?” he came over. I gave him the picture frame with dad and the girl “that’s dad?” asked Max. I didn’t say anything but looked at him and nodded “and that’s you right?” he asked “no I think” I said “I think it’s the thing that mum and dad are hiding” “you mean what I think you mean” said Max “what do you think I mean?” I asked “I think you mean that, that girl could be our big sister” said Max “I think you’re right” I said looking worried

*
“What do you mean they have a big sister? They can’t have a big sister” said Mike “their mum got pregnant at 17 but was too young to keep her but we were allowed to name her” said Mr Harmer “what’s her name?” asked Mike “Alyssa” said Mr Harmer “and where is she now? I mean how is she?” asked Mike “I’m not sure but I think she’s 28” said Mr Harmer “have you ever tried and looking for her?” asked Mike “no and don’t let Tess go looking for her” said Mr Harmer “but she’s always wanted a big sister and now she has one” said Mike “please Mike, don’t let her go looking for her sister” said Mr Harmer “please” mr Harmer begged “okay I will try but when Tess makes up her mind about something, she sticks to it. But you’re got to tell them” said Mike “no it’s better this way that they don’t know” said Mr Harmer
“TOO LATE” I said
My dad and Mike turned around and looked at me “Tess, I am so sorry” said Mr Harmer “save it dad, how could you? You made my finance not tell me about my sister? Why would you do that?” I said and I walked away

*
“We’re got to found her Max” I said but Max looked at me noticing that I was upset about the whole sister situation “T, what’s happened?” he asked me confronting me “Max, I think” I stopped “I think that girl in that picture with dad is our big sister and dad didn’t tell us” I said “what??!” asked Max “exactly but she is called Alyssa and I think she is 20” I said “how could dad not tell us? Mum probably threated him. This is massive T” said Max “I don’t know big bro, yeah mum probably did. But I’m determined to find out. Want to join me?” I asked “yeah court me in, lil sis, so do you know anything about Alyssa?” asked Max “no” I said “anything at all?” asked Max “well I know her name is Alyssa” I said “well duh” said Max “anything else?” “nothing” I said signing “what should we do?” asked Max “ask Mike” I said “but he knew before you found out and didn’t tell you and dad told him not to tell you” said Max “yeah I know but he will” I said determined “do you want me to come with you?” asked Max “no it’s okay” I said “but T” said Max “please Max, just let me do this okay” I said. Max looked at me and nodded

*
“Mike” I said as I went into the kitchen “yes, my nearly wife” said Mike grinning at me “I’ve found out something” I said “oh what’s that?” asked Mike “I have a sister” I said smiling “oh my god T, I was going to tell you I promise but your dad told me not to, I am sorry. I wanted to tell you” said Mike sounding worried that I’d be mad “Ssh it’s okay baby. I’m not mad” I said “I love you” said Mike “so so much” and he picked me up and spun me round “I love you too” I said “I’m sorry” said Mike “for what?” I asked “for not telling you, silly” said Mike putting me down “you’re forgiven. Actually you’re not forgiven because it isn’t your fault that dad didn’t tell us and plus you wanted to tell me in the first place so it’s all okay baby” I said kissing him on the check “what are we going to do?” asked Mike “who says we’re doing anything?” I asked “don’t you want to look for your sister?” asked Mike “I do” I said “good then what’s the plan?” asked Mike “nothing” I said “but you just said” said Mike “we’re not doing anything until after the wedding” I said “I love you” said Mike “I love you too” I said “you are so amazing” said Mike “aww thank you” I said smiling

*
Are you okay?” asked Susan “yeah, why wouldn’t I be okay?” I asked “because of what you found out” said Lynette “I’m doing okay, I just” I said and then I fell to the floor
“TESS!!” asked Lynette “TESS” said Susan and both of them came over to me and bent down “MIKE! Come quick” shouted Susan

Mike ran over to us and saw me on the ground and bent down next to me “Tess?” said Mike “Su, what happened?” he asked his sister “I don’t know, she was talking like normal and then she just fell. You don’t think it’s the baby do you?” asked Susan “we have to call an ambulance” said Lynette “wait, hang on” said Lynette “MAX COME QUICK, it’s Tess” shouted Lynette

Max came in 5 seconds “oh my god, what’s happened? Is T okay?” asked Max “she has to go to the hospital so I’m going to call the hospital and when the ambulance comes, me and you will come into the ambulance with T and Lynette and Susan and whoever else will follow okay? So while I call the hospital, you stay with T, max and Lynette and Su, you will get everyone and yourselves ready to follow us okay? Let’s go” said Mike clapping his hands and he walked to the living room and dialled the hospital. Lynette and Susan rushed off to find dad and everyone else while Max stayed with me but I didn’t know

He lend his head on me and kissed my forehead “please be okay T” he whispered

When the ambulance came, Mike helped them lift me up onto a stroller bed and got me inside and Mike and Max climbed into the ambulance and sat down and watched me with my eyes closed “Mike, she’s going to be okay right? And the baby?” asked Max sounding really scared “Mate, she’s going to be fine, I promise” said Mike but he sounded scared but smiled at Max “Mike, you don’t have to put on a brave face” said Max sounding sympathy “and the baby?” asked Max “everything will be fine, Tess is such a strong girl. She’ll get through this” said Mike smiling at Max “I love you Mike, I’m so glad Tess is happy and you’re going to be my brother in law” said Max “aww thanks, me too and I love you too lil bro” said Mike “and why is Tess calling you big brother? I thought you were younger?” he asked “I am younger than Tess” said Max “then why, what’s going on?” asked Mike looking confused “oh Tess was really really upset about mum leaving and she was saying it was all her fault and that she shouldn’t of told mum and dad that she is pregnant which I think was the right thing to do to be honest and mum is a cow and she is wrong for being ashamed and embarrassed but anyway Tess was really upset so I said I would be the big brother for a while because I love Tess more than anything. You know that right? I hate it that Tess is blaming herself when it’s not her fault, it’s mum’s and this baby is going to be really lucky that T is her mum because Tess is amazing and kind and caring and the best friend ever” said Max “aww that’s so sweet and that’s so true about Tess, it’s not her fault at all” said Mike smiling at Max. Max smiled back at Mike
