Givar, winter, 2015
Ming sat on the toilet and waited and counted and waited. She was a whiz at numbers, her accounts were some of the best at the company. So how had she missed this.
She looked at the clock and crept over the sink. She peered at the tiny white plastic stick. Hormones were amazing. Just by peeing on a piece of plastic stuffed with cotton you could get the news that could change your life...or not.
She sighed when she picked it up. Positive. The same as the last two. She flung it to the trash, "Third times the charm, my ass!" she muttered.
"Wow, really? You've been watching a bit too much Little Einsteins."
"I can't help it, it's Sabazo's favorite show."
"I love that show, the kids love the end when-"
"Hey," Ming interrupted. "I thought we were gathered here today to talk about me!"
"Yea...so...do you know what you want to do?"
"No, not yet."
"What about Ben? What does he think you should do."
"O! You haven't told Ben yet?"
"Why should I tell him."
"It's his baby too, Ming. He should have a say."
Ming was quiet.
"O...my...goodness. It's not Ben's baby is it?"
"I don't know! No!"
"Ming, who's the father?"
"Well...you remember that show."
"You didn't! With all of them?"
"I guess you had a really fun time in that love shack challenge, huh?"
Ming rolled her eyes and shot daggers at her friend.
"Ming, really? You do know that you can get pregnant during a vacation, right?"
"I do now, thanks for the news flash."
"Well, maybe you could call the producers..."
"And have this all over the tabloids and boost ratings for their show and be branded a slut in the media, no thank you. Besides, if I wasn't willing to date them, then why should they have a part in my child's life."
"What? You woohoo'd two of them! Doesn't that count for something. O, that's right, you've been "not dating" Ben for what? Nine simyears now?"
"Shut up, you're not helping."
"Sorry, so you're not going to tell the potential baby daddies, so you'd be a single mother?"
"If I keep it."
"Right, if you keep it. Either way, you'd be a great mommy."
"Yea, you've been great with our kiddos, they loves their 'Titi Ming' to pieces."
"And if you don't, then there's nothing wrong with that either."
"Yea, don't worry about it too much, Ming. I'm sure you will make the decision that's best for you and your life right now."
"And whatever that choice is, we are here for you."
I have no clue how this happened...ok, I do know that woohoo causes babies. I didn't know you could get pregnant during a vacation. Ming came back from the show with a popup saying that her vacation was horrible and that she was jet-lagged. Also something I didn't know. Then Elphy did a booty call with her boytoy, Andrew, and I checked the ACR Adjuster to make sure their birth control options were correct. Only to see that there was an option for "terminate pregnancy" and guess who was pregnant... Looks like she had a lot of fun in that love shack :)
