Since learning she was pregnant, Rosa had been putting of telling Alfie, because who else could be the father? She didn’t know why exactly she hadn’t told him, but one morning the sound of her alarm snapped her back to reality and out of her much needed sleep.
And then she considered setting him free. She’d been in his position before, but when he refused to look her in the eye she shooed the thought away. Then she got to thinking. Why would he try to rob someone as poor as she was? there was only one explanation. He’d been sent.
“Who do you work for?” She asked. His eyes widened in surprise.
“What!?” He asked. Rosa grabbed his chin with one hand and came really close.
“Who. Do. You. Work. For?” She asked again.
First though she called Bebe, she’d become really good friends with her. Bebe already knew of her pregnancy.
“Why didn’t you tell him again?” Bebe asked.
“Because I have had bad experiences with this. Last time I got pregnant, the dad left me on the side of a road,” Rosa explained.
“You were pregnant before? What happened?” Bebe asked.
“He said we could still be together, if I got an abortion. You’ve gotta understand, I was young and naive and in love back then, I would’ve done anything for him!”
“So you got an abortion?”
“Yeah…” Rosa sighed.
“Well you know Alfie won’t be like that.”
“I know that’ why I’m telling him tonight!”
So she ended up asking him out at the restaurant.
“Hey what’s up?” Alfie asked.
“But I’m pregnant!”
And then Ethan showed up on the scene. “Oh so you’re pregnant then, sure it’s not mine?” Alfie held his temples. “I’m gonna go.” He declared and left.
Rosa followed Alfie all the way to his house.
“Alfie, I’m sorry! I didn’t know he was going to be there!” Rosa exclaimed.
“And we are going to be a family.” He said rubbing Rosa’s potruding stomach.
