I laid in bed, staring up at the ceiling. James had his head nuzzled in my shoulder, his arms wrapped around me. I slowly wiggled around, trying my best not to wake James up as I climbed out of the bed.
I clearly failed.
“Where are you going?” James mumbled, rubbing his eyes.
“I just need to go talk to Dom.” I said, picking up my discarded clothes off the floor. “Go back to sleep. I’ll see you at dinner.”
“Okay.” James muttered.
He rolled over and pulled the sheets back up. Quietly, I opened the door and crept out into the boys’ staircase. I moved quickly across the common room and up the girls’ staircase. I barged into my dorm, tossing my dirty clothes in my laundry hamper. I looked over at Dom’s bed. She laid there peacefully, her silvery hair fanned out gracefully around her. I almost felt bad from waking her up from her nap.
“Dom!” I hissed, shaking her shoulder some. “Dom, wake up.”
“Hmm?” She mumbled.
The door flew open and in walked our roommates, Alexa Nomway and Riley Johnson. I never had a problem with the two girls. This just wasn’t a conversation for them to hear.
“I think I might be pregnant.” I said in French.
“What!” Dom hissed, sitting straight up in her bed. “Merlin Belle, what the fuck.”
“I’m not one hundred percent sure though.” I said, looking over at Alexa and Riley.
The two girls seemed completely oblivious to the conversation we were having. That was a benefit about being able to speak another language fluently. If you didn’t want people to hear your conversation, simply just switch to French.
“You need to take a test then.” Dom said.
“I’m not going down to the Hospital Wing.”
“You don’t have to.” Dom replied. “We can sneak out to Hogsmeade and apparate to London. I think Lily has the map.”
“Let’s go.” I said, switching back to English.

Lily did indeed have the map. She tried to get us to tell her where we were going but we didn’t budge. We told her it was a secret and when the time was right, she would get to know. Lily didn’t seem happy with the answer but reluctantly gave us the map anyways.
“I want this map back.” Lily said. “I mean it Isa. It took me a long time to get this away from James.”
“Of course Lils.” I said.
We walked out of Lily’s dorm, Dom getting the map to work. I walked into the common room. Dom trailed behind me while flipping through the folds of the map.
“Alright, it’s early enough so the prefects haven’t started patrolling yet. We’ll get in and out with no problem.” Dom said, folding the map up and shoving it in her back pocket.
She walked towards to exit and I followed nervously behind her.
I really hope I wasn’t pregnant.

“That’s like the fourth time you’ve thrown up today.” Dom stated as we walked down the streets of London.
“Yeah, I know.” I said with an annoyed tone.
I was so sick of throwing up. I didn’t even know how there’s still anything left in my stomach with the amount of times I’ve gotten sick today. We went into the first convenience store we saw. Dom lead the way back to the family planning aisle. She grabbed three different types of muggle pregnancy tests and a box of condoms.
“These are for me.” She said, holding up the box of condoms. “I am not about to have another kid anytime soon.”
“Come on.” I laughed, grabbing the tests from her. “Let’s just get back to school.”
We walked back up to the front of the store. I dumped the tests on the checkout counter, avoiding the cashier’s eyes. I was sure she was probably judging me. I handed over my muggle money when she told me the total and waited for Dom to check out. She thanked the cashier and grabbed her bag. As we walked out of the building, we searched for a nearby alley way so we could head back to school. Dom grabbed my arm and dragged me behind the store. With a loud crack, I felt the gut wrenching tug. As I stumbled to catch my balance, Dom was already dragging me into Honeydukes so we could use the hidden entrance to get back to school. Dom had the map in hand, checking for prefects.
“Alright, let’s go to Moaning Myrtle’s bathroom. No one is ever there.” Dom suggested.
“Yeah, besides Moaning Myrtle.” I grumbled.
None the less, I followed Dom down to the bathrooms. I held the bag full of test close to me, trying to draw as little attention as possible. Once in the safety of the bathrooms, I dumped the tests out of the bag and tore open the boxes. I held the three sticks in my hand.
“Go pee on them and then put the cap on. Then we wait.” Dom instructed.
Why did these tests have to be so gross? I walked into the bathroom stall.
“Oooo, what do we have going on here?”
“Go away Myrtle.” I snapped.
Trying to pee on a stick was hard enough. I didn’t need an obnoxious ghost watching my every move.
“That’s not very nice.”
“Myrtle, I’m trying to pee.” I said, annoyed.
Myrtle glared at me but she went away. I didn’t even feel bad for being mean to her. I placed the caps back onto the tests and left the stall. I walked over to the sink and dropped them in there. Anxiously, we waited. The boxes said it would only take a few minutes. I forced myself to wait two minutes before picking the tests up.
All three were positive. Dom leaned over my shoulder, taking a peak at the tests.
“Hmm, looks like I’m getting a new cousin.”
“Dom!” I cried out. “What the hell am I supposed to do? I’m not ready for a kid.”
“Maybe we can convince Vic to pretend to be pregnant again.” Dom joked.
“Dom, I’m serious!”
“Alright, alright.” She said. “I think the first thing you should do is tell James. After you tell him, you can figure out what to do.”
“Alright.” I sighed.
I grabbed some paper towels and wrapped the tests up in them. Dom pulled the map back out, checking to see were James was. Of course, the lazy bum was still up in his dorm room.
“Wish me luck.”
* * * * * * *
James’s dorm was exactly how it was when I left. James was the only one in the room, sleeping peacefully in his bed. I carefully climbed up in the bed. I shook him gently, trying to get him to wake back up.
“James.” I whispered in his ear. “Wake up. I have something I need to tell you.”
“Hmm?” James mumbled, shifting slightly in his bed. “Belle?”
“The one and only.” I replied. “Roll over. I have something I want to show you.”
James shifted in his bed. He laid on his side, propping his head up with his arm. I unrolled the pregnancy tests from the paper towel. James took it, examined it, and then handed it back to me.
“Do you know what that is?” I asked.
“Not really.” James replied.
“It’s a pregnancy test.” I explained. “Congrats, you’re going to be a daddy.”
I looked down at my boyfriend. He had his signature smile forming widely on his face.
“It would seem so.” I replied, holding up the three tests.
He rolled over, grabbing me with him. He squeezed me tightly and planted a big slopping kiss on my lips. When I was released, I nuzzled my head into his chest. He had one arm wrapped around me.
“Holy shit, I’m going to be a dad.”
