Heather was a proud woman, her height of 5'10" being one of the reason why she held her head so high. She always worked for what she wanted in life, payed her way through community college before moving to New York City. Then spending years in a tiny apartment working as a waitress at two different restaurants to make ends meet before she was finally able to get a popular magazine to hire her as a writer for one of their columns. She never gave up, which why many people looked up to her and labeled her an the ideal woman. Working her favorite job and earning plenty of money to do it while living in a nice apartment with a handsome boyfriend of two years. Yep, there was nothing but smooth sailing for this woman in her years to come, nothing was going to get in her way!
...At least it seemed that way yesterday...
Things can change quickly from ideal to horrifying very quickly, something Heather learned the hard way that morning. She had noticed that something was wrong when she missed her period and assumed that it had only been stress holding her off since she had been working on an important article at the time. Her mind just could think that maybe it was possible that she was pregnant, they had been so careful after all! They used condoms since birth control would have messed with the budget far to much and required a prescription, something Heather was far to busy for to even think about. However, she could not deny that as days passed the lack of a period started to bother her more and more. Even if she was late is usually happened within a few days...at this point it had been a week an a half.
Unable to deny it much longer, she bought a test at the pharmacy down the road on her way home from work while her boyfriend was still at his own job. Taking the test and waiting those few minutes put her through more agony than any article could and when the answer came, she nearly fainted...
Heather Moore was pregnant.
The next few hours after that were a blur of disbelief and worry. How could she be pregnant? Had a condom been faulty? Had they forgotten in a whirl of after work passion? Were they drunk!? She couldn't remember over even think back to all of the times they had done it, mostly because they were so..."active" that it was hard to even count or figure out which time had done them in. That didn't seem to matter the most though, she was worried about what it would do their life. A baby was expensive, and neither of them had thought about it all that much, they barely even talked about getting married even after being together for so long! Would her man leave her to deal with this alone? Would she become a single mother and destroy the relationship that she loved so very much? She just didn't know anymore...She would just have to wait for her boyfriend to come home.
