The next day went well. I told all my friends who the father was, and I got the same response from all of them, “Do you know how hot he is?” Even from Kyle, which kind of concerns me. Anyway I'm just waiting for Nash now. He walked up, “I see you found my car okay.” I held up my phone, “You sent me a picture Nash.” I shook my head. I gave him the printed map-quest directions to my doctor. He drove while I fumbled with the radio.

“So do we get to see the little guy today?” He asked. “I think so, but I don't want to know the sex yet.” He shook his head. We got to the doctors and took the elevator up. We sat in the waiting room for about 10 minutes until we were let back into the exam room. The doctor came in, “And who is this? Annabelle?” Dr. McCarthy questioned. “This is Nash, he's the father.” She shook her head, Dr. McCarthy was Carrie's mother, I had cried to her when I found out. “Okay. So today were just going to do an ultra-sound, if you want we can see the sex?” I perked up, “You know I don't want to know yet.” she shook her head again, “It would be really nice if we could finally tell Mr. McCarthy, and your father what to paint that new room and nursery they're building you.” Mr. McCarthy was a contractor, he and my father had decided to renovate our old sun room and my older brother's room into a new bedroom and nursery for me and the baby.

I decided I wanted to do one of those baby cake things, where you give the envelope to the bakery and they put blue or pink icing inside. My thought was interrupted by the cold squirt of the ultra-sound gel on my stomach. She started the monitor and began to rub the wand across my stomach. “Oh what do we have here?!” She exclaimed. “What? What is it?” I said quickly. “Is the baby okay?” Nash said worried. “No, no. Your babies our fine.” Dr. McCarthy said happily. “Did you say Babies? Like as in plural?” I questioned. Nash's knees went out, and he hit the floor. “Yes sweetie! Your having Twins!” I felt like I was going to faint. “Oy Vey!” I exclaimed.

After the doctors

Nash was driving, “Are you sure your okay?” I asked him, he was driving a little fast. “Could you sow down a little you scaring me? Nash?” He slowed down, “I'm sorry, I'm not good with news like this.” He dropped me off, and we both went to our parents to tell the news. My parents were delighted. I took the envelope to my room and sat down starring at it. I really didn't want to open it. Then I got an idea. “Mom I'm having a craving for pineapple! Can we go to the store?” I shouted from my room. My mother drove me to the store. “Okay so I really wasn't craving, I just had an idea. On how to reveal the sex to everyone!” I said as we walked into the store. “I want to inject food coloring into pineapples! Then when you cut them open you see it! It's just like the baby cakes they had on SNL that one time.” My mom just stared at me, “That's a great idea honey.” She went shopping and I got a box of food coloring and went to the produce section.

I rung the little bell on the counter. “Hi, how may I help you?” The fruit guy asked. “Well I'm having twins, and have you heard of baby cakes? Where you put the color of the sex of your baby on the inside of your cake. You see I want to do that but I want to inject food coloring into pineapples. Is that possible?” He just starred at me like I was crazy. “Well we could try, I don’t really have anything to inject it with here, but I can call my friend in the pharmacy and see if she can help out a little.” He smiled and took the envelope and food coloring from me.

The next day

I texted everybody to meet me at a picnic table outside the building we normally hung out in front of. I asked my favorite teacher if she could help me out. I explained the whole situation to her, she was going to bring out the pineapples and a knife to cut them with, that way we wouldn't get in trouble for having a knife on school property. Everybody started to show up. Once everybody was there I started to explain. “Okay so I wanted everybody to come here for a few reasons. One, it hurts for me to stand so I wanted to sit. Two, I love you guys and I wanted to share something with you, and as Nash found out yesterday, it helps if you sitting down. Three I want to say that we're having Twins!” Everybody cheered and clapped, “Oh and I wanted to say what the sex of the babies are- oh! Hey Ms. Smith! Is that pineapple? Ooh! Can I have a piece?” She came over and asked Nash to cut it since he was used to it. “It's pink! I've never seen a pink pineapple befo-” Ms. Smith cut him off, “Congrats! Its a girl!” Everyone laughed and cheered. “Nash! Cut the other one!” I screamed. He cut the other one, “Its pink! We're having two little girls!”
