“If you take any longer, I’m going to come in there and uppercut you in the spine.”

 

“Thank you, that was extremely descriptive.” I rolled my eyes back, sliding on my last earring. “You had all day to get ready. I had less than thirty minutes!”

 

“Full of excuses, as always.” Mel sighed dramatically, staring down at her glistening diamond watch that suited her perfectly. “Could have had a nap at the time you- oomph!”

 

My hand connected with her abdomen and she sucked in a breath of surprise. She swiveled her head towards me, her eyes narrowed. “If you weren’t pregnant, I would get you back ten times worse.”

 

“Bite me.”

 

“Don’t make me.” She challenged back.

 

“Are you ready?” Jason asked, appearing around the corner.

 

My lips parted slightly as I stared at him. He had dark dress pants on and a light, blue shirt tucked into the waist. His eyes perfectly contrasted with the shirt. A massive grin spread across my face. I walked to him, making it obvious I was giving him the once over.

 

“Well don’t you look handsome.”

 

Without even realising it, we had colour coordinated. Again. This tends to happen a lot. I had a light blue coloured dress which wrapped around my body, my hair falling in loose curls down my shoulders. I had simple, silver accessories on and had finally mastered wearing heels.

 

Currently, we were getting ready for the going away party for Chase and Britney that I organised because they were going to spend eighteen months in America. I had been so busy preparing all day that I left myself hardly any time to get ready, if you couldn’t tell with Melanie’s constant complaining.

 

“Ugh, let’s go!”

 

Jason smirked at her, knowing full well that she was annoyed. Therefore, he did everything in slow motion. Her cheeks grew red, her lips spreading into a thin line.

 

“You’re really pushing it mate.” She growled.

 

He chuckled, exchanging a glance with me. I rolled my eyes, linking arms with him. “Let’s just go before she has an aneurysm.”

 

“Funny!” she spat.

 

Luke remained silently observing, knowing that when she was in a bad mood, it was best to stay out of her way. Unless you were Jason and got a kick out of stirring people up. She clutched Luke’s hand and dragged him toward the car. I let out a laugh, rolling my eyes.

 

Mum and Dad babysat Courtney tonight, while we all went out, so they finally had a night free. You think she would be happy. I climbed into the passenger seat, resting back. Absently, I placed my hand on my stomach. It still hasn’t sunk in that in eight months, I would have a child of my own.

 

“Hey,” Jason murmured softly, reaching for my hand. “You okay?”

 

“Yeah, fine.” I smiled back. “Just thinking.”

 

I glanced back to where Mel was bickering with Luke. Surely, if these two could raise a child, Jason and I could. Sometimes I questioned whether Courtney was more mature than Mel.

 

It was pretty quiet on the way there. I rested my forehead against the cool glass, just watching the side of the road. Pulling up steadily, I tumbled out of the car, making sure my hair and dress were sitting right, starting to feel a little excited about the party. As I had to duck out and get ready myself, we weren’t the first people here. Once entered, I saw Britney’s glistening, blonde hair straight away. As quick as I could manage in these heels, I scuttled toward her. Embracing her from behind, I gave her a tight squeeze.

 

“Oh my God Emma, this is amazing!” she gushed, her eyes lit up. Her cheeks were flushed and she had a massive grin planted on her lips. “I can’t believe you put all this together.”

 

 

I shrugged nonchalantly. “I just hope you like it.”

 

“I love it.” She smiled, her eyes watering slightly. “Thank you. I’m honestly going to miss you so much.”

 

“Don’t, or I’ll cry.” I laughed, feeling the familiar stinging sensation of tears well in my eyes. I didn’t want to ruin my makeup this early into the night.

 

More people began to arrive, so I let Britney go mingle. Spotting Jason, I sauntered my way toward him, wrapping an arm around his waist. He was in conversation with one his mates from the work, who knew Chase quite well.

 

“Honestly, don’t know how you put up with this guy. His jokes are terrible.” He told me, shaking his head at Jason. His face was flushed from laughter, which means they mustn’t have been too bad, but I could only imagine. Knowing Jason, his jokes would have been funny because they’re just that pathetic.

 

“Look, if I’m honest with you, it’s a challenge. But someone has to do it.”

 

Roger laughed. “I like this one.”

 

“Oh good, I have been waiting for your approval.” Jason retorted.

 

He then launched into another series of incredibly bad jokes and I excused myself. I’m glad Jason had some people to mingle with, since he still isn’t Chase’s biggest fan. Sure, he will be polite to him, but he still is holding a grudge from high school. Feeling a little tired, I wandered over to one of the spare tables and sat. My back begun to slightly ache so I was more than happy to sit for a few moments.

 

“You alright?” Mel asked, sitting down elegantly beside me.

 

“Yeah, how are you? Mrs. Grumpy Pants.”

 

She laughed. “I just wanted to come here and get drunk. Now I don’t even feel like doing that.”

 

“Oh? Are you not feeling well?”

 

“Not really. I don’t know, I think I might have food poisoning or something. I vomited this morning and have been feeling a bit off for a few days now.”

 

“Have you eaten anything out of the ordinary?” I asked with concern, squinting at her. It was hard to tell since she looked very nice, with her makeup and hair done beautifully, but you could still tell she was a little pale.

 

“Not that I can think of, but you never know.”

 

“You couldn’t be pregnant again, right?” I asked her quietly.

 

She laughed at first. Her laughter quickly died away as she thought about it. She turned her head, her mouth falling open. We blinked wordlessly at each other for a few moments.

 

“Oh. Crap.”

 

“Crap as in this is a possibility?” I squeaked, eyes wide.
