She shook the stick again. This time harder. Maybe that's what it took for it to register. The directions clearly said to wait two minutes for the results to show, but those 120 seconds were taking an eternity to pass. She was getting too anxious to find out the results. She looked at her watch one more time as she played with her tongue ring. Just as it hit the mark of one minute and fifty seconds, a blue bar slowly started to become visible.
Blue bar? Was that positive or negative? She scrambled to find the box for the instructions and realized she had thrown it away in her haste to get to the test. Fortunately, it rested just atop the trash receptacle. She also didn't manage to get it all the way in when she tossed it so she didn't have to go digging far.
Blue bar = pregnant.
The 20-year-old released a huge yelp followed shortly by a gratuitous smile stretching from ear to ear. She had finally done it. Not that she didn't have plenty of practice. That wasn't the problem though. She had already discarded her abusive boyfriend assuring that he would never father her child. She was able to find a suitable replacement instead. A sperm donor to help her fulfill her wish of having a child of her own.
She quickly grabbed her sister's cell phone so that she could capture the moment. She stood in the mirror and snapped a picture of herself cheesing next to the pregnancy test. The same one she had just finished urinating on not even five minutes ago. One thing she also forgot to do in her haste was to wash it off. Not that it was much of a problem for her. Showering wasn't a daily occurrence for her anyway so cleanliness was not one of her concerns.
She then marveled at her lanky frame. Gently massaging her stomach, running her fingers over her pierced belly button. She would leave that in as long as she could. Sure she would eventually start developing that little bulge, but that didn't mean she couldn't still keep it sexy. She had to stay somewhat on the prowl. She still needed to find that special someone. He didn't have to be a father figure because she knew she would have enough love for both her and her unborn child.
The thought of looking thru the classifieds did momentarily cross her mind. It would be nice if she had a job to provide for her and her family. However, that was not a priority at the moment. She was comfortably enjoying her temporary residence on the couch at her sister's house. Why should she have to worry about paying any bills as long as she had someone to do it for her? She had other things to stress over. Like making sure she got all of her Facebook responses updated for the day. The possibility of getting a job remained a very fleeting thought.
Food was also not going to be an issue. Up to that point, she was able to enjoy the groceries that her sister provided. However, after doing some quick research, she discovered that she would be eligible for food stamps! So not only could she now reap the benefits of free room and board, but she would also have free sustenance. Well...not entirely free. The government was paying for it. Not that it mattered to her. She didn't have a job so it wasn't her tax money being used on it. It was free to her.
She continued to ride the natural high as she collapsed on the couch to chat away online. She couldn't wait to share the great news with all of her friends. Maybe she would even visit some of them in person to tell them. All she had to do was find a ride since she had no transportation. She knew that wouldn't be a problem though. Life was going to be all rosy for her now that one of her biggest dreams had finally come true.
