Chapter 13

The truth.

**Once again, its been a while, and I'm sorry. My keyboard on my laptop doesn't work half the time so its a pain to try to type. I've also been really busy because I'm going to be on a tv show! :D More on that later.**

"Can I talk to you, Joe, alone?" I ask.

"Yeah. Nick, can you tell Dad I'll be there in a few minutes?"

"Sure." Joe and I begin to walk in the opposite direction.

"So, what did you want to talk about?"

My eyes fill up with tears as I try to build up the courage to tell Joe that I'm pregnant. "Um...I..."

"___, are you okay?" I quickly shake my head. Joe pulls me into a hug. "You can tell me anything, you know." I pull away from him.

JOE'S POV
I look down and notice something different about ___. She's wearing a baggy shirt and I can still see that her belly is slightly sticking out. I quickly stick my hand under her shirt and feel what is obviously a baby bump.

"I tried to tell you," she says, "but I couldn't. I couldn't gather up the courage. That's why I broke up with you. I'm so sorry." Tears begin to well up in her eyes.

"Its okay. I forgive you. I just wish you could have told me. Do your parents know yet?" I pull ___ into another hug.

She nods her head. "Yes, but they think that I was raped." I push her away.

"Why would they think that?!" I ask, with probably too much rage in my voice.

"I-I panicked! I was having symptoms of being pregnant and Mom noticed. I was going to tell the truth, but I chickened out. I'm sorry!" I wipe away a tear from her face.

"No, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to yell," I say, with a much calmer tone of voice.

"You won't tell anybody, will you? I don't want to keep you from living your dream. Just let everyone believe I was raped, please? And I know how your parents feel about premarital sex. I don't want you to get in a ton of trouble."

"But I want to be a part of my child's life."

"I know, and you can be. Maybe not as much as you would like to be, but I promise I'm not going to keep you from seeing your child."

"But-"

"And the press will never know. You won't be labeled as a bad role model because you made one mistake. It's a win-win situation."

"No it's not," I say. "Not for you. While I'm traveling the world performing in front of thousands of people, you'll be at home, taking care of a baby. It's not fair for you."

"Joe, I can do it. Don't worry about me. I have my parents who are willing to help take care of the baby."

"The baby that I helped conceive. I want to help you raise our child. It's the right thing to do." ___ raps her arms around my neck.

"Right now, the best thing you can do is what you're doing now. Living your dream, traveling the world, inspiring people. That's what you need to be doing."

"Alright. We'll keep this a secret. For now. I don't want to lie to my family forever, just for a few years so we can really make something out of this record deal. But keep me up to date as far as ultrasounds and stuff, okay?"

"Okay. I promise I'll tell you everything. And this time, I won't break that promise."
