The Prince's Pregnant Challenge(9)

By: Leslie North

When she got home, she rushed upstairs to take a shower. As she stood under the spray, she thought of Jean Pierre's touch. Why did she have to have sex with the one man she detested the most? He was infuriating on a good day. As she thought about how good he felt, she turned the shower to cold before quickly jumping out. She knew she had to pretend as if it never happened and move on with her life, but she suspected that was going to be impossible as her skin tingled at the thought of him. As she was reaching for a towel, Macee walked into the bathroom and Liane screamed.

“Why are you so jumpy?” Macee asked.

“I just did not expect anyone to come in whilst I was taking a shower,” Liane replied defensively.

Macee laughed and pulled down her shorts. “I needed to wee,” she said as she sat on the toilet. Liane shook her head. “So how was the party?” Macee asked.

“Rubbish,” Liane replied as she tried to put it behind her. She stayed hidden in the shower stall as she towelled herself off.

“Well, you were certainly gone long enough.”

Blushing, Liane was glad that Macee could not see her. “No, it really was. I swear you would have hated it. I’m really tired of people wanting to be friends with me simply because I am to marry the Crown Prince.” Macee laughed as she stood up. Those parties were definitely not for her.

“It’s only going to get worse,” Macee replied as she walked out of the bathroom leaving the door wide open.

“MACEE!” Liane shouted.

“Sorry,” Macee rushed back to shut the door.

Liane had been feeling a little off and was having difficulty keeping up with Charles. They agreed that she would take a few days off assuming that she was simply fatigued. Liane really appreciated the days off and found herself sleeping more than usual. It finally became apparent to her when she missed her second period. Getting dressed, she left the house without telling anyone. Her mother would have been furious that she drove herself, but she couldn’t risk anyone finding out as she found a store located far away from her home, where no one knew her.

She stopped at a petrol station and used the restroom there. It was not the most ideal place to take a pregnancy test but she could not wait until she got home or risk Macee walking in on her again. As she waited for the results, she was full of mixed emotions. When the time was up, she picked up the stick and stared at it. It was positive.

Groaning, she stared at herself in the mirror. What was she going to do? Obviously, she couldn’t marry the prince now; especially given who the father is. She couldn’t help but laugh at how angry her mother was going to be when she found out. She was so looking forward to spending more time at the palace. Her thirst for power far exceeded her love for her family. As Liane put her hands on her stomach, she smiled. There was a little human growing inside her. Tears rolled down her cheeks. Her life was about to become very different and deep down, Liane couldn’t have been happier.

When she arrived home, her mother was fluttering around the house giving orders to the staff. Liane wanted to escape to her bedroom but it was impossible, her mother heard her walk in and called her to the living room. She reluctantly went to sit with her. “Prince Louis is planning to visit us soon,” her mother said with such joy in her voice.

“Why?” Liane asked. Her mother narrowed her gaze at her eldest daughter.

“You are his fiancée. Can he not visit?”

“He can but he never has. So, why now?”

“I think that they have finalized the wedding date.”

Liane's eyes flew open. She was not even going to have some time to keep the secret to herself. She pulled out her phone and messaged her sisters, “Code Red”. She needed to speak with them immediately as she was going to need their help.

Liane rushed upstairs to her room to wait for her sisters to get there. They arrived moments later as code red meant extreme emergency. When Liane told her sisters, what was going on they both could not believe it, especially the fact that Jean Pierre was the father, as they knew how much she disliked him.

This was truly a messy situation and one that was going to be difficult to explain. Liane had no idea how she was even going to tell their mother. She was so happy about her engagement to the Crown Prince, you would think that she was the one getting married. But there was no way she could marry the prince now. The three sisters dreaded the repercussions, but decided that it was best not to reveal who the father is, at least, not yet.
