The Breaking Point- Baby 16 Part 2

Before we all left the other challenge moms took me to the hospital to get checked out. Yes, it was uncomfortable, but they're doing some tests to see which one of the guys erm... Took advantage of me. The doctor said that it was too early to determine if I was pregnant though.

Somehow I ended up back home. Everything that had happened in the past 24 hours is all a bit of a blur, I don't even remember what I was doing 5 minutes ago. I think I was still in the car. Or was I standing out here for the past 5 minutes looking like an idiot? I shrugged, it wouldn't be the first time, that's for sure.

the first thing I did when I got inside was check on the quads. It looked like they just got up. I got them all out of their cribs and gave them a bottle. Now where's Tom?

I found him downstairs checking out the washing machine. "You are so beautiful and so good at doing your job," He said to it.
I laughed. "I don't know what job you're talking about, but thanks."
He laughed. "I was talking about the washing machine silly girl."
"I'm aware, I just like making jokes at random times."

He turned around and hugged me. "You okay?" He asked. "You seem kind of tense."
Dang. He definitely knows when something is up. "I'm fine," I said. "Just a long night."
He laughed. "I bet. And I also bet you're pretty tired too."
"A bit, but hey, that's completely normal for me."
"Do you think you would be up for going on a date to the bistro tonight?"
"I don't know, I was kind of hoping to spend a bit of time with the kids tonight. You probably need a bit of a break though, don't you?"
"I would like one, yes."
"Then I'll call a babysitter for the quads. They'll probably all be asleep by the time we go out anyways, or at least taking a nap."

The next person I saw was Micah. "Hey mom," He said. "I'm getting good grades in school, can I age up?"
I was slightly surprised at his request. "Um, sure, that's fine with me."

So we aged him up. He decided to go into the ghost hunting profession which had always seemed kind of dangerous to me. He convinced me that he would be fine and then he moved out.

*Tom's Point of View*

We got to the Bistro at about 7:00 and sat down at one of the tables outside. When we were waiting for our food to get served Laura seemed a bit fidgety. "Are you sure you're okay?"
She jumped a bit at the sound of me saying something. "Oh yeah, I'm fine. Don't worry."
"Okay," I said. Maybe it's time for a change of topic. "I really like your dress."
She looked uncomfortable after I said that. "Oh, thanks."

After eating we went back to her house and were making out when I decided to make the next move and reached for the zipper of her dress. She froze and of course we stopped. "Not tonight, okay?" She asked.
"Yeah, sure, that's fine."

"Can you please get off of me now?" She asked.
"Sure," I said as I rolled over to my side of the bed.
She got up stiffly and went to the dresser. "I'm going to go change into my pajamas real quick."

She got some clothes out and went to the bathroom, which was weird enough, she usually just changes in here. And if that's not weird enough, She came out in this. (Not her usual pajamas, that's for sure.)

She climbed into bed and fell asleep rather quickly.

Two hours later she got right out of bed. "Laura," I said. "What the hell?"
"What?" She asked.
"Why are you suddenly so awake?"
"I can't sleep."
I propped myself up on my elbow. "Why?"
"I just can't sleep, that's all. Don't worry about it, I'm fine."
"Shhh, go back to sleep."

She got up and started teaching Tessa how to walk. At least the toddlers were awake. I sighed and tried to get back to sleep.

While Laura was with the toddlers in the morning I called Calista. She and I have talked a few times before and since she was in Bridgeport I figured she might know what happened.
Calista: Hello?
Me: Hey Calista, it's Tom. I'm just cutting to the chase and asking. Do you know what's wrong with Laura? She's been acting pretty weird since she got back.
Me: Hello?
Calista: She hasn't told you yet...?
Me: No, I don't even know what you're talking about.
Calista: Tom, I'm going to say this once. Do you remember when we were discussing how Laura was going to reach her breaking point one day?
Me: Yeah... Why?
Calista: I'm pretty sure she reached it.
Me: Wait Calista, what happened?
Calista: I'm not the one that should be telling you what happened. That's up to Laura. When she's ready she'll tell you, just don't pester her, alright?
Me: Alright.

After that the line went dead.
What's going on?

*Laura's Point of View*

In the midst of taking care of the toddlers I got a phone call.
Me: Hello?
Calista: You haven't told him yet?
Me: No
Calista: Why?
Me: I don't know how to tell him.
Calista: He deserves to know what's going on. He's really freaked out right now because he can tell something's seriously wrong.
Me: Well how do you suggest I tell him? It's kind of hard going up to your boyfriend and telling him you saw Chester and also got raped by one of the guys that was with him.
Calista: Chester was there? Good god Laura, why didn't you tell us?
Me: I didn't tell you he was there?
Calista: No, you just said there were 4 guys.
I could hear some heavy swearing coming from Calista. Dang. I never thought I'd hear that woman use such foal language.
Calista: Well this changes everything.
Me: Just a bit.
Calista: Do you think he did it?
Me: I don't know. Maybe he did. I severely doubt it though.
Calista: Why?
Me: I already slept with him once. He got what he wanted when I had to deal with him the first time.
Calista: That's true, I guess. Do you have any guesses as to who might have done it?
Me: I have an idea. I don't think Chester did it and one of them seemed kind of scared by the whole situation, so it probably wasn't him. It was either the one who know me out or the one who told him to knock me out.
Calista: Both seem pretty likely.
Me: Exactly.

A couple of hours after the phone call with Calista I had to throw up. Either I ate some bad food or that creep got me pregnant. For once I actually hoped I just ate some bad vegetables.

Later, Tom and I were cleaning out the training potties when he said, "You haven't eaten anything all day. Go get some food, I can handle the quads."
"I'm not hungry though."
"Too bad, it's nearly time to go to bed and you've been taking care of toddlers all day. Go eat something. I'll just wait in your bedroom for you."
I sighed. "Fine. But I seriously am not hungry at all."
"Yeah, I heard you say that when you get stressed."
"Because I don't think of food when I have stuff to do and other things on my mind. So sue me."
"Well you could at least try to be healthy."
"I'm perfectly fine, Tom."
"Then why are you acting so weird all of a sudden?"
"I'm not acting weird."
"Then why do you suddenly freeze or try to flinch away from me whenever I try to touch you?" He asked as he made the mistake of touching my shoulder.
I flinched. "Could you just stop?"
"Stop what?"
"Touching me. I don't like being touched."
"Well you had no problem with it before."
"Yeah, well, that obviously isn't the case now."
"Jesus Christ Laura."
"You're so defensive and stubborn lately. You seriously need to calm down."
"Well you haven't exactly been pleasant to be around lately either."
"Oh and why's that?"
"You've just been so pestering lately. 'Oh Laura, are you okay? Are you sure? Why aren't you sleeping?'" I mimicked him.
"Well I'm sorry for caring."
"And I'm sorry for not telling you something that's not your problem."
"So there is something wrong."
"Yeah, and it's my problem, so I'm dealing with it. Geez, step off."
At that point we were both pretty angry, so I just left.
"Very mature," Tom yelled after me.
"Screw you," I yelled back.

After eating some leftovers in the fridge I got into my room to discover I was pregnant. Great. Just one more thing for Tom to freak out at me for. Just what I needed.

Just as I discovered I was pregnant, Tom walked in.
"You're... Pregnant?"
"It appears so," I said.
"So that's why you've been acting so weird."
"Wait, what? Oh, yeah, it is. Yeah, I am acting weird, aren't I?"
"Why do you sound so guilty," He asked. Then he had a surprised and slightly hurt face. "Wait, are you cheating on me?"
"What?!? No! How could I even do that?!?"
"Then how did you magically get pregnant? The timing is perfect, a few days ago you were in Bridgeport... Wait, are you crying?"
Crap, I was. I quickly tried to wipe away the tears. "No, why would I be crying. Everything is fine, really."
Tom walked towards me and started wiping away the tears that were now streaming down my face and I unintentionally flinched away from him. "I’m sorry,” He said, bringing his hand down. “Crap. Laura, I didn't mean to make you cry."
"No, no, it's fine. I could see why you would think that. That isn't why I'm crying."
"Then why are you crying?"
"Because I'm useless and good for nothing. And I always let people dow---"
"Laura, what's going on? Why are you saying this stuff?"
"Because it's true," I said between sobs as I nearly crumpled to the floor. Luckily Tom caught me.
"No it isn't," He whispered as he stroked my hair.
I started sobbing harder and the tears were coming out faster and faster. Poor Tom had no clue what was even going on. "I'm sorry," I blurted out.
"I don't know what you're sorry for, but it's okay," He said as he lifted me up and sat me on the bed.

Tom looked hesitant to even say anything. I can't say I blame him. I've been a hormonal mess today. "You can say something," I said hesitantly. "I promise I won't freak out at you or start crying again."
"Thank god," He said, smiling. "So, what were you apologizing for?"
"For being so snippy lately and not telling you what's going on."
"It's fine, if you don't mind me asking, what is going on?"
I told him what happened in Bridgeport a couple of nights ago with Chester and his "buddies."
"So... That's why you've been acting so weird since you got back?"
"And this really happened?" He was the one who seemed upset now.
"Yes Tom, I'm pregnant because of it."
He leaped off of the bed, whipped out his phone, and punched in a number. "Hey Bill," He said.
Bill, who's Bill? Whoever it was they responded.
"You were going undercover in Bridgeport a couple nights ago to help spy on Chester, right?"
"What?!?" I nearly screamed. Tom shushed me.
"And you were in his group, right?.... Did he do anything illegal?... Oh, nothing, huh? Are you just covering there, because my girlfriend ran into you guys."

Thanks for reading guys!!! I've been a post making fiend lately, I swear. I hope you um, enjoyed this post. Personally, I'm glad I'm done writing it. This is the only thing I did all day since I was too lazy to do anything else and it was kind of saddening to write it. xD
This is totally not how I saw this post ending. At all. But then it popped into my head and I was all like, :O "PLOT TWIST"
Anywho, I'm done typing this little closer, so toodles!


  1. 0.o
    Tom has some interesting friends -_-
    some interesting friends who i think are LIARS
    anyways amazing post and :O "PLOT TWIST!"

  2. Thanks ^.^
    But it's so fun to play with Chester. We all know Chester just wants to play. O.o (Or not, more like get revenge. xD)
    Yep, he has fun cop friends since he's a cop. Bill is definitely a liar, that's for sure. ^.^

  3. It'd better not end up being Bill who did it, cos if Bill is the baby daddy, I'm going to need another pack of Nerf bullets, a goat and a trumpet.

  4. Lol, I have to say, I'm kind of scared of what you would do with a goat and a trumpet, but whatever whips whoever did it into shape works for me. xD

  5. Bleh, Chester just creeps me out even more. >:(

    I'm with Skye, I hope Bill didn't do it. Poor Laura... I'm glad Tom is so kind and comforting. And I'm glad Calista talked some sense into those two!

    ~Calista Smith

  6. He creeps me out more and more too. I don't know why I keep dragging him into everything, but he just kind of fits. It's like he's that last piece of the puzzle now. xD
    I'm keeping my lips sealed with Bill right now. (Even though it feels totally impossible. xD) All that I'm going to say about Bill is this: He's one of Tom's cop friends and goes to Bridgeport a lot.Yeah, if Tom wasn't there then it would've been even more tough for her. At this point (At least in my mind) Tom is the person motivating her to keep going. (The kids are helping with that too, of course.) I was trying to make her kind of zombie-like in Tom's point of view, but I'm not sure it worked too well. xD
    Yeah, after the last post I commented to Skye that all of the challenge mom's would have a pretty significant roll in the next few posts. Calista is the one who talks some sense into everyone. :)
