Seventeen and Pregnant (Avenged Sevenfold)
Finally, I was standing in front of the skateboarding shop with my best friend right beside me, Katie not Jimmy. I wanted it to be Jimmy but I guess things were changing at that. But, I needed to spend some more time with her anyways. I haven’t really in the two weeks she was here because we were with our boyfriends or I was sick because of this little baby. Or heartbroken, there always seemed to be something in the way.
“It’s going to be alright sissy,” Katie smiled at me, holding my hand tightly. I was so nervous. What if I went in there and they wouldn’t let me on the team? What if I wasn’t good enough for them? I sighed, squeezing her hand tight before I dropped her hand and walked inside, holding my DVD in my sweaty palms.
“What can I do for you?” This nice looking boy asked me. He was nice looking, gauges, shot hair, tattoos on his neck and coming on his arms making it look like he had a long sleeve shirt underneath the store t-shirt. I smiled at him, tucking my hair behind my ear and bit my lower lip.
“I ugh…I’m looking for a sponsor,” I said shyly to the man, looking at his name seeing that his name was Mitch.
“Sure honey hold on,” He smiled and winked at me. I blushed and he walked into the back and went to get his manager while I looked over to Katie who gave me a thumbs up. I smiled nervously and gave her a nervous thumb up and they two guys came back.
“Hey, names Alex,” He smiled coming and shaking my hand. I smiled.
“My names Deanna,” I said lightly. He looked at the counter at the DVD, asking me if this was it. I nodded, tucking my hair behind my ear again. I was so nervous, scared at what he was going to say.
“It’s rare that we get a girl on the team,” He winked, which kind of freaked me out. I didn’t know if he was flirting with me or if he was being serious. He smiled and popped the DVD in the DVD player behind the counter and turned on the TV that was in the corner. I stood there nearly passing out. My knees were jello, I could feel Katie staring inside the door and I had no idea why she didn’t come inside, maybe because it would make it even worse for me.
The guys were sitting there watching it and I was standing there watching myself. I was seeing all the tricks, the boarding lines, all of that. The music fit perfectly and it also gave credit to my boyfriend and his band for doing so. The end had came and the man, Alex, paused the movie and looked at me, crossing his arms across his chest and looked at me with a shocking look. I was kind of worried, did he think that it was bad? Did I do such a bad job? Or was it the editing that wasn’t so well? Did he see Jimmy? There was so many questions in my head. I shoved my hands into my pocket and looked down to the floor.
“It was terrible wasn’t it?” I asked the man lightly.
“Terrible?!” Mitch exclaimed, “That was the best boarding I had ever seen a girl do!” He said coming and picking me up in a hug. I didn’t know what in the world to do but he made me happy. They liked it! They really liked it!
“How long have you boarded?” The man asked me, Mitch set me down and I moved my hair from my face laughing.
“Since I was two,” I said, “Then when I became pregnant I-”
“Whoa,” Mitch said lightly, “Your pregnant honey?” He asked. I felt my heart crash. My dream, it was right here in my grasp and now it was going to be gone. Just because I opened my big mouth.
“Y-yes,” I whispered, not wanting to believe it. I looked down to my feet, feeling the tears already starting in my eyes.
“Hey,” Alex said, clasping my shoulder, “Honey, when you have your baby we can talk then ok? I will have the spot open for her.” He said giving me a smile. I nodded, grabbed my DVD and put it back in its case, thanking the man for his time. I came outside to Katie and told her what happened and started to cry. It was right there, right in my hand and I had to tell him that I was pregnant. There was a lot of times were I wondered if this baby was enough, that it was a good thing to have it or not.
“Let’s go home,” Katie said holding my hand. I nodded, so bad wanting Jimmy. But he doesn’t love me, I guess it was all just a lie. I missed him, I wanted to call him but instead, my phone rang and it was Zacky.
“Hey,” I whispered, not wanting to talk at all.
“Hey, you ok?” He asked me. I nodded, taking in a deep breath.
“Yeah I guess,” I whispered, looking down to my promise ring.
“You wanna come over, maybe watch some movies? The guys are all busy with things,” He chuckled. Well, I guess I was someone last resort.
“I guess,” I muttered and hung up the phone, telling Katie I was going to Zacky’s for a while. She smiled at me and called Matt so that she would have a date night with him. All I know is that I didn’t want anyone but Jimmy and I was afraid to even ask.
