He had said that he'd be there - heck, he said that he'd be her father's child. And yet, here she was, sitting on her couch, alone. They had been dating for a few months, and everything had

"I know that you're against marrige, but i was hoping that, maybe...because of the baby..." he shook his head before starting again. "Basically, this is the reason why I have been so distant lately.
