"The triagle is not a friendly shape. It's pointy and it hurts."
 
"Saturday morning, i was with my friend Beth-" "Beth, Beth who?" "Beth Copper. She was our DD. I was suppose to be the DD but last minute plans changed that." "What were those last minutes plans Miss Forbes?" "Well it was more like a last minute pregnancy test, Bethy was pregnant. Oh god, Bethy was pregnant, she was going to be a mommy, finally get to be the one thing she always wanted. They have been trying for months and months and one girls night took that away." "Ma'am is there someone i can call for you, someone who can come stay with you or come and get you." "Uh, no i will be fine, i just need to sleep, do you have any other questions, because if not, i think i want to be alone and process what happened. If i am being honest with you, i need time to cry, and scream because my best friend and the baby that her husband didn't even know about, hell that only i knew about... because they are gone. What am i suppose to do now, what am i suppose to do?" I fell into the officers arms and just cried, it felt so good to be held to be in the arms of a man. It had been too long. "So i am going to let the other officers know that i am going to stay here with you till we find someone to come, i am not leaving you alone and i am not putting you under a 24 hour hold, that will just make things worse, you stay here, Miss Forbes i will be right back, okay." I couldn't do anything, i just sat there and stared into space and thought about what that babies life would have been like. 
 
"Can you please change this stupid song, you have listened to it a million times and if i hear it again, i will blow a lid Bethy." "Okay okay fine i will change it, until the next song." I growled and walked off, "I swear Beth, one more time and its over for you." She laughed and turned the music up louder while we continued to get ready. " "Piper, PIPER COME HERE.. now." I could hear the excitement in her voice. "What is it Bethy, i am trying to get ready here.... if i have to be the DD i wanna look the part, but also sexy, surly there is a guy out there that can respect what i am doing for you guys tonight." "JUST COME HERE!!!"  "Geez i am coming!" I walked into her sitting on the toliet staring at a stick, a pregnancy test. "Beth, what is that in your hand?" "Well you know we have been trying Kimmy." She looks at me with a dumbfounded look. "And, you have been for a while. Wait... is that positive! Bethy are you pregnant?" "Yes." She whispered and the jumped up and ran over and pulling me into a hug. "Oh my god i have to call Seth, he is going to be so happy and just in time for fathers day Sunday." "Okay first, pull your pants up, second we can totally cancel girls night and go to a book store and buy all the baby books we can find and just read about it tonight." "No, i wanna go out just change of plans, i'll tell the other girls that you are meeting a guy there and that i wanted you to enjoy it, so i will DD and Sunday after i take a few more test, then i'll tell Seth. And me and the Godmother of my child will go and buy all the baby books we can find in the city and just read about it next weekend" She paused and smiled "or maybe Sunday night. I don't want anyone to know till we hear the heartbeat." I look at her with wide eyes, "You want me to be the God mother of your child?" "Well as if that was even a question you should have to ask, of course i want you to be the God mother you are my best friend, the sister i never had." She looked at me as a tear strolled down my face, "Kimberly Emeline Forbes, will you be the God Mother to my child, please." "Of course bethy, oh my god thank you so much. I love you." "Okay people would totally think we were a couple of lesbians for sure right now." She hugged me again and squeezed hard. "Kimmy, i am having a baby!!" 
 
"Miss Forbes? are you okay? I can get you water or. I mean can i get you anything?" "This is my house Officer Walsh, i should be offering you something to drink. Can i get you water, tea or something stronger, i need something stronger." "Well i can not take anything stronger but i am fine, thank you though, i am here for you." I smiled, "Officer Walsh, my best friend is dead, her unborn baby is dead, take a shot with me, hell yours can be a shot of tea but just take a shot with me." He laughed "Okay, lets do two shots of tea then." I walked to the kitchen pulled out cups. "I don't have shot glasses so these will have to do." I poured just enough to be a 'shot' and handed him his cup. "Here is to a night in hell." I needed to to call Seth, i needed to tell him the truth, didn't i? "Hey can i ask you a question? And if i am over stepping or you don't feel comfortable then you can tell me." "Uhm, okay? How can i help you." "Should i tell, uh do you think i should tell Beth's husband about the baby?" "Wait, he really didn't know?" "No, she was going to surprise him Sunday for fathers day, she was going to go cook him a huge dinner and when he asked why she was going to tell him, she was going to tell him." I feel to the floor and curled into the into a ball, i just wanted to sleep. "Look Officer Walsh-" "Please call me Caleb." "Okay, Caleb, I want to shower and sleep. So if you want to stay, stay but i am showering and sleeping. Feel free to go anytime you don't have to stay." "Well i want to, i am worried about you." "Why are you worried about me, i am not going to do anything stupid. I just want to cry, and i have a horrible crying face, so weather you leave or not, thank you for caring." I stood up and gave him a hug, "It's been a while since someone has." "Well you do have a pretty ugly crying face i wont lie but ill stay as long as you need." I laughed as i walked up the stairs to my bathroom, "Your welcome to anything you need, but there is only one bathroom so i hope you don't have to pee, or worse." I heard him chuckle as i closed the door and started my bath.
 
I woke up hours later to the sound of the door locking. 'Sure Beth just let yourself in.' I thought. I got up and walked to the bathroom and saw the water standing in the tub, then i remembered. "Bethy." i cried out her name and sank to the floor. Officer, Caleb came running upstairs, "Miss Forbes are you okay?" "Your still here, why." "Well actually i went home, took a shower changed and came back, so technically i came back." "How did you get in." "Uhm, i took your keys, i figured you wouldn't be going anywhere and i knew i would be quick, i am really sorry if i am overstepping my boundaries here but i can't help it with you." I looked at him, puzzled, "With me, what do you mean?" "You don't remember me do you?" "Should i?" He smiled and looked at the ceiling, "I asked you out on a date about a month ago, in a coffee shop, you told me you had a boyfriend otherwise you would. I still can't get your smile out of my head." "Oh, Yea i was with Jack, i am so sorry i didn't remember." "It's been a stressful night for you, no harm no foul. So i couldn't get you to go on a date with me but i stopped and got doughnuts and coffee and tea, i got a ton of different coffees, and a few teas, also a got a dozen doughnuts but not one looks or smells the same and-" "Caleb, thank you, give me a few minutes to," I felt like i was about to barf, I ushered him out the door and slammed it. "I'll be out in a few minutes." I manged to get out before i puked up all of the food i ate for the past few days then started dry heaving. "There is water outside of your door, it will help with your dry heaving." I heard him sit the glass down then walk down the stairs. A true gentlemen. I opened the door reached for the glass and sucked the water down, the coolness of it felt good. 'I think i am done.' I stand up and walk into my room and fell on my bed. "Bethy and her unborn baby are gone." I say out loud just to hear myself say it. Then i scream it "BETHANY AND HER UNBORN BABY ARE GONE." 'That one felt good, really good' I got up and put on sweats and a sweatshirt and went to enjoy my doughnuts, 'Bethany wouldn't have wanted those bad boys to go to waste. I'll do it for her, if my stomach will allow it.' 
 
"Thank you again Caleb, you didn't need to do this." "Of course i did, So should i call Jack for you now?" I look at him and smile, "My best friend just died and it should have been me and you are asking about me if i am single?" "Uh, no i wasn't. Im sorry it seemed that way, i am really concerned about you and if you were my girlfrie-" "Officer Walsh, i was kidding, Jack and i are no longer together." He tried to hid the smile that was wide across his face with his hand. "I need to go to see Seth we need to talk." "Okay do you need me to drive you?" "Actually i was hoping you would, i am not sure i will be able to drive after we talk." "Alright well lets go." "Are you still on the clock? Will you get in trouble?" "No i am not Miss Forbes. I want to be here." "You can call me Kim, that's my name." "Well Kim, shall we go." I smiled grabbed my purse and walked through the door, I heard the lock click into place then he handed my keys back, "Sorry again, i should have asked but you looked so peaceful when i walked in to, i just couldn't wake you up." "No, thank you Caleb, you are very kind. I trust you with my keys anytime." 'Am i really flirting with him?' I thought to myself as i shoved my keys in my bag and walked around the corner to his car. I looked up, well to his truck. "I like your truck, it's very nice." "Thank you, i just got it last week." "Congrats." With that being said i gave him the address to Seth and Beths house and just watched as the trees passed. 
 
"Um i should be ready in like an hour. I am going to mess so if this is too much or i am overstepping please feel free to text me and i will call a cab." I squeezed his hand and slipped a piece of paper with my number on it, "Either way, thank you so much for all you have done." "Of course, and ill be here, does he know you are coming over?" "No but i have a key and he is use to me usin-" I paused and felt the tears stinging my eyes. He squeezed my hand back. "You can do this, you are so strong to do this. I look up to for you this, i couldnt do it. You are brave and strong and beautiful." I slowly looked up and let my smile show. "Thank you Caleb, i mean." "I know." He brought my hand to his mouth and kissed it. "Ill be here if it gets to be too much." I got out of the truck and walked towards my dead best friends house.
