Maria was in the middle of doing her homework when she heard her cell phone ring. She picked up after about 3 rings.
Hello? She spoke into the phone.
Maria? She heard her best friend say on the other end, in a trembling voice. She sounded really upset, almost frightened in fact. It was weird. She knew Sharon was sick, but that shouldnt do it.
Sharon? Maria asked, her voice now filled with concern Whats wrong? Are you okay?
No, Im not. My life is over.
Okay, dont worry. Its all right. Just calm down and tell me what happened.
I… um… I… just took a pregnancy test…
A pregnancy test? Why would you… oh my god! Sharon, are you…?
I am! The test was positive. Im pregnant! Sharon was now in tears and Maria knew that she would not calm down unless somebody was there to comfort her.
