I woke to the sound of Rose and morning sickness. That’s right a vomiting noise coming from her bathroom woke me up. I rushed up to her and held her hair back as she threw up what looked like everything she’d ever eaten. Once finished, she slumped up, her back against the bath, wiping away the sick from around her mouth, and looking at me, her eyes more tired than usual.

“I’ve gotten used to it” Rose final said, once I’d flushed the chain and put the seat down on the toilet so I could sit on it.

“You are so much stronger than you believe you are” I goggled at her

“Maybe. Although I have to sit like this for a while after, I get the shakes”

“Not today”

“It must be you”

“That’s right. You’re not alone anymore. You never should have been”

“I know” she looked at the floor, not making eye contact

“Sweetheart, are you okay?” Hermione’s voice can from the other side of the door

Rose then looked at me, panic in her face. I simple inclined my head toward the door, not giving her the answer she wanted

“Honey, do you need a glass of water. Livy? Are you in there too? Anything I can help you girls with? I was walking past the door and heard someone being sick”

I had two choices here. Tell Hermione everything was okay. Or drop Rose in it. I chose drop Rose in it, 4 months she’s had. I figured a push wouldn’t hurt.

“I’m fine Hermione, it’s Rose” I sadly mentioned, opening the door to show Rose on the floor. Slipping out of the door as Hermione entered, sticking my foot in the door so it wouldn’t close, but also to show Rose I hadn’t left her.

Rose POV-
“Oh, Rose. What’s wrong?” Mum worriedly sat down next to me putting a supportive arm around her.

“Everything, Mum. My whole world is upside down” I revealed looking straight into her eyes, but quickly ducking under her arms after just like I’d used to do when I was little and upset, being close enough to hear her heartbeat always comforted me.

“What do you mean everything?”

“I’m pregnant. And Mummy I’ve never been so scared in my life”

“You’re pregnant?”

I nodded into her, not really sure what to say for myself as the tears started to fall

“And you’re sure?”

I nodded again, now speaking into her dressing gown, “I’ve only told Poppy at school when I found out. Oh and Livy last night. I’m four months pregnant”

“My darling baby girl, why didn’t you tell anyone until now? You know you can tell me anything Honeybee. Is Scorpius the father?” I smiled slightly when she used her nickname for me from when I was really little. Although realising the situation I was in, found the frown once more.

“I was just so so frightened of what everyone would say. I thought I’d be disowned by everyone. Yes, Scorp is its Dad”

“I would never ever disown you” Mum got me to look at her and spoke this sternly to me looking me straight in the eyes, “But of course, I’m glad you’ve told me now. That’s what’s important here. And at least it is your boyfriend that has got you pregnant”

“My reasoning just sounds so silly now; I was just worried you’d think less of me. And, well, Dad.”

“Your Father, well, you know how he is. But he’ll come round. We just have to tell him now, just like you need to tell everyone else. I think maybe you should start with Scorpius. If your Dad gets angry and pays him a visit, and he doesn’t have a clue, well, poor boy won’t have the slightest head start.”

“I just don’t think I can though Mum. I don’t know how to put it in words”

“Well, you just told me. The words ‘I’m pregnant’ would be my first choice. And I’d go with you for support, or even advise you to take Livy. But somehow two people knowing before the father doesn’t seem like the best way to start the conversation”

“I have to go on my own then?”

“Yes Honeybee, I think you do”

“Okay. Can we have breakfast first though, I could eat a house”

“Sure! I’ll get your Dad up and get him to make your favourite waffles shall I? I’d do it myself but they never turn out like his”

“Thanks Mum, I love you”

“I love you too Honeybee” with that she gave me a big squeeze and left the room.

I got up and followed my Mum out of the room and into mine where I found Livy sat on my bed, flicking her wand to deflate the airbed and fold it up. I smiled at this, thinking that for once in 4 months, it was going to be okay. Even if it was just Livy and I, well, and Mum. Everything was going to be okay.

“She took it well” Livy looked at me, smirking like she’d planned the whole event and was very tempted to say ‘I told you so’

“Yeah, she did. But she isn’t the problem And neither were you. It’s everyone else I’m worried about telling” I moaned as I sat down next to her

“One baby step at a time”

“One baby step at a time, I just took another. I’m doing well!”

“Even if you do say so yourself!”

“Absolutely!” I laughed and Livy joined in, we must have sat there for a while laughing. It got to the point where I couldn’t remember why I was even laughing. We only stopped because I heard Dad calling that breakfast was ready from downstairs. I jumped up and threw a dressing gown at Livy and put one on myself.

We headed downstairs for waffles, with syrup, and blueberries, then second helpings and 2 slices of toast. For me that is, but seriously, I am a Weasley, and eating for two. Livy could only eat one helping of waffles and almost passed out because she was so full. She’s skinny though that one.

Once I finished eating we both thanked Dad for breakfast and went back up to my room. We were just about to get dressed when there was a knock at my door.

“Come in”

“Morning ladies. How are we today?” Al walked in with a similar smirk to his brothers and actually similar to the one Livy gave me this morning. Walking straight over to Livy and giving her a kiss on the cheek.

“Just fine Ally. And how are you this fine mornin’?” Livy asked, putting on some sort of voice which I think was meant to sound like a cowboy.

“Well little lady” trying, but again, failing to put on an accent, “I’m bloody fantastic!” he laughed, giving the awful accent up.

“What’s got you so happy this morning Al?” I asked, curious of what it was

“I’m not sure. I guess I woke up on the right side of the bed this morning!” he answered

“Wonderful. Well, we were just about to get dressed. I’ve got to find some clothes for Livy and then find some for myself. So, if you don’t mind. Bugger off for a bit and we’ll see you downstairs” I told him

“Charming! I’ll go and bother Hugo for a bit then! I haven’t seen him in a while” he smiled, wondering off to find and bother my poor little brother.

We found clothes and got dressed fairly quickly and went downstairs to find yet another person had arrived, apparently Al had not bothered Hugo but gone and got Scorp to bother.

“Hello Beautiful” he smiled as soon as he saw me, giving me a small peck on the lips

“When did you get here?” I asked smiling up at him

“Literally a few moments ago, Al came and got me. I think we’re all going for a walk down to that little cafe you like and then onto the big hill.”

“Ooh! Sounds great! We’ll just put some shoes on and go then!”

We all set off to the quaint little cafe in the centre of town called ‘Treat Village’, Hermione used to take Rose and Hugo down into the centre of the muggle town when they were younger, every weekend and would never leave without having a cake or biscuit from ‘Treat Village’. Rose introduced us to this little place in our third year and ever since when we found ourselves at her house and visit here was never denied. Of course then we made our own tradition to then, once full of cake, we’d walk up the big hill you could see in the distance through the cafe window. It always takes us a while, but as we walk and talk it never seems too long. We rest under the shade of the large oak tree that sits at the top of the hill. And really, we don’t do much at all.

As we walked up the hill, at some point, Rose and I seemed to be slower and the boys seemed to be a fair way further up the hill. I took this opportunity to talk to Rose, “I think maybe you should tell him” I practically whispered to her

“I can’t Livy”

“Now is better than tomorrow”

“But what do I say”

“We’ve been through this”

“One baby step at a time”

“That’s right. Always, just one baby step at a time. You just give me a signal, scratch your nose. And I’ll take Al away”

“But I’ve got to tell him too”

“Not today you don’t. Two people in one day, on your own. That’s a large baby step. But I know you can do this”

“I can’t do this”

“You have to; I’ll literally just be lower down the hill. Not far. Just shout if you need me”

“Okay. But only because I have to.”

“That’s good enough for me”

Al and Scor seemed to have realised we were lagging and had stopped; we caught up with them easily and walked up the rest of the way together. We sat, just talking for a while when I saw Rose scratch her nose at me. I could not have been prouder of her, honestly, she is so strong.

“Al, could you just come with me for a bit” I asked, smiling down at Al as I got up.

“Of course gorgeous” he smiled back getting to his feet and wrapping one arm around my waist

“We’ll just be a bit lower down the hill. Won’t be long. See ya in a bit” I waved at Scor and Rose, smiling widely a Rose who was going slightly green.

Scorpius POV-
“Bye” I waved back at Al and Livy as they disappeared down the hill.

I looked back at Rose, smiling to myself about how lucky I was to have her. However I realised she was really quite green, so asked, “Rosie, are you okay? You don’t look very well”

“I’m fine. Well, sort of. Well, I am fine. But, well, I need to tell you something. And well, I hope that’s fine. Because it might not be fine, and well, that would be an issue. But me in particular, right now, am fine.” She answered in a very unsure way

“Are you quite sure? What do you need to tell me? We tell each other everything”

“We do, don’t we. Well, there’s this one thing. That well, I haven’t really told anyone. Only the people who need to know. Actually not even all of them. You’re top of the metaphorical list and I haven’t even told you”

“What haven’t you told me Rose”

“Well, it’s just, you know on your birthday. Actually it wasn’t your birthday, it was your party and after, well, you were there, you know what happened”

“Yeah, I remember, what about it?” I asked getting increasingly worried

“Well, I found out, that you know that condoms are 97% effective and the contraceptive spell is 99% effective. And we used both. Well, the thing is that sometimes they don’t work”

“Rose, what are you trying to say?” I asked now beginning to think the worst

“Scorp. I’m pregnant”

I didn’t know what to say, my mind was racing. I’m not old enough to be a Dad. I’m not mature enough to be a Dad. I haven’t even left school. What was my Dad going to say? My Mum would probably have a heart attack.

“Huh?” was all I could say

“What do you mean ‘huh?’ I’m pregnant with your child. Is that clear enough for you?”

“Since November?”

“Yes, four months”

“And you never told me? You never thought I may have needed to know any sooner? I mean that’s half me. And I’m not the first to know? I bet Livy knows and Al probably. Why didn’t you tell me sooner Rose? We tell each other everything. We did tell each everything. But I guess my girlfriend forgot to mention the fact she carrying my child inside of her. Must have slipped your mind? Well?” I was distraught, I couldn’t believe it, I got angrier by the minute, demanding an answer to my many questions

“I wanted to tell you. I just didn’t know what to say, how to put it into words. Al doesn’t know and Livy only found out last night. She’s had less than 24 hours of knowing it before you. I swear. It never slipped my mind, every time I saw you for the past 4 months I’ve wanted to tell you. But I’ve never had the courage to do it. I didn’t want to ruin anything between us. I love you and I didn’t want you to dump me like fire wood, now I was part of a package deal. I just didn’t want things to change. I didn’t want to come to the conclusion this was real. I’ve started showing slightly, so now I know it’s real. I have to face up to the facts. Telling you is the hardest thing I’ve had to do. I’m been more afraid of this conversation than telling my Dad. I just. Well, I just. I don’t even know anymore” She answered me, tears falling down her face.

Still sitting away from her I asked, “Livy knows. Who else knows?”

“Poppy. I told her as soon as I found out. And I told my Mum this morning after she heard me throwing up. I haven’t told anyone else. Well, expect for you. I kept it a secret until I couldn’t anymore”

“What are you going to do with it?”

“I don’t know. It depends”

“Depends on what Rose?”

“What you want”

“Why would it matter what I want?”

“You said it yourself. They’re half you. Besides if you leave me, I can’t do this on my own, well, I’ll have to figure something out”

“Why would you ever think I’d leave you?”

“Because, well, I don’t know. This isn’t exactly the position we want to be in. It’s easier for you to tell me to go away and have nothing to do with me, forgetting everything that’s happened”

“I’m not going to leave. But maybe you’re right. It’s not the situation we wanted to be in. Have an abortion then”

“Have an abortion? YOU WANT ME TO HAVE AN ABORTION?” Rose shouted at me, the tears now lashing down her face.

“Rose? What’s happening?” Livy’s voice came from lower down the hill, obviously she heard her screaming

“DON’T BOTHER LIVY. IT’S SORTED. HE WANTS ME TO GET RID OF IT” Rose screamed down to her, bitterness in her voice.

“I never said that. I didn’t mean. But, you said yourself. I thought that’s what you wanted me to say. That you didn’t want to be in this situation. That’s the only way out”

“Maybe I don’t want to be in this situation. But I am, I’ve always been told that everything happens for a reason. Maybe this is what is meant to be. And if you don’t want to be part of this, or even suggest I cancel it. You’ve got another thing coming. I’ve just realised that maybe fate did this to me to help me out, to show me maybe there’s another elephant out there that loves me more” Every word she said stung me and with that she walked away.

I slumped against the tree, feeling sorry for myself, only able to hear Livy pleading with Rose to see reason, it then getting fainter as she followed Rose storm away. Next thing I knew though, Al had come up and sat next to me. Thoroughly confused as he was, I told him.

“She’s pregnant. Rose is. With my child”

“I gathered, I just can’t believe it”

“Neither can I”

“I was so angry moment ago. You know, I really would like to curse you. A lot. But I don’t have my wand. So, then I’m thinking, punch him in the face. But honestly, you’re my best friend and you look as if both things have already happened to you. I think Rose may have done that already, so I’ll let you off”

“Rose didn’t do either. She just spoke to me. But I think I may have ruined everything because each word she said stabbed me in the heart”

“Pregnant women get hormonal you know. I think you just have to find the right words and sort this out”

“You think?”

“Despite whatever she may have said. She needs you more than ever right now. She’ll give in”

“I hope so Al”

“Me too”

With that brief heart to heart conversation we stood up and wondered back to Rose’s house, only to find Hermione outside the front door, telling us it was best be left immediately, taking us to the fireplace and bidding us both goodbye. I went home and escaped to my room, I didn’t leave for days unless I needed the loo. I only left because I had a visitor who pleaded with me until I gave in.

A/N- Hey Guys! What'd you think of all this then? Please, please, please leave me a review. Thanks for reading! ScoroseOTP xxx
