"I do." he said with a nod. "I think that if we try our best, we’ll be able to pull it off. But, we need to help each other to get through this, too."
"I think I might need you’re help a little more- you know for all those late night food runs." A small smile crept on to her face.
"Listen, I’m really sorry I freaked out on you today. I’m still kind of dealing with a lot, I shouldn’t have taken it out on you."
"I think we can." he said with a nod. "Of course, we’ll have to double anything, but I know we can be good parents no matter what."
"You really think so?" Lacey had only been in recovery for a year, if she couldn’t take care of herself how was she going to take care of a child let alone two.
It was pitch-dark when Charlotte awoke, screaming. Even with it being the fifth time in a row this week, she was absolutely terrified, quickly sitting up in her bed. The only thing she could hear was her heavy breathing and an obnoxious ticking noise. It was most definitely the massive clock hanging above the door in the kitchen. A clock that she nourished a strong hatred for from the very moment it was carried through the front door, because no matter where she was, the girl constantly heard it ticking.. slowly driving her insane. It was only in her dreams, where she seemed to be able to escape it.
Most nights, Charlotte forced herself to stay awake, not wanting to scare her family by screaming in the middle of the night. But there’s only so much sleep you can avoid, before finally passing out. As if right on cue, she heard hectic footsteps doubtlessly coming towards her room. Yet another night she had to make her aunt believe she was alright.
After her aunt finally left, Charlotte picked up her phone, dialling the number who belonged to the person she had avoided for the past week. “Spencer.” She breathed out.
It wasn’t like Spencer wasn’t freaked out by the whole situation he just tried his best to put it in the back of his mind, it wasn’t like it had affected him directly. Besides, the boy had more things to worry about than the slight chance that whatever he saw with Charlotte was going to put him in danger. It had been a relatively normal day for him, he went to work, went to his second job and scraped his drunk parents off of the front lawn before making his own dinner and going to bed. He knew for a fact that the same thing couldn’t be said for Charlotte, the main reason being because she had been successfully avoiding him for a week now.
Just about two hours after falling asleep on his couch Spencer woke up to his dad yelling at him in a drunken state to get some more booze for him. Not wanting his dad to wander out alone Spencer obliged, got on his jacket and started the walk to the nearby liquor store. Barely old enough to legally buy alcohol Spencer pulled out his fake and bought a bottle for his dad.
While on his way back, sleep still tugging at his eyes Spencer felt his phone vibrate in his pocket. Pulling it out he looked at his screen with a confused look wondering why Charlotte was deciding now to talk to him. Letting out a sigh Spencer accepted the call, “yeah, that’s me, why the hell are you calling so late?”

"Fine, if that’s what you want. Door’s right there."
"I’m sorry- just- it’s for the better, you have to trust me."
"That exciting." he said with a small smile. "Scary, yeah—— but exciting."
Hearing him say he was excited made her breath a sigh of relief and feel a little better about the whole thing. “Yeah- and we can handle it, right? We can do this.”
"You won’t even make an exception to this cute, cuddly face?”
"I’m not kidding this time. It’s done. I’m leaving."
Ash was speechless to say the least. What the two had was a very unhealthy on and off relationship. He could barely stay committed to her as it was but adding two children to the mix was just pushing it. Especially with the state of mind that he was in. “I can’t raise a child
children, I mean.”
With the relationship they had she knew adding in two kids was going to make things worse, she knew Ash and she knew she couldn’t force him into this. “I know…” her voice grew quiet, “and I completely understand if you don’t want any part of this, I just- you deserved to know at least.”
Parker’s jaw dropped. “Twins?” he asked in shock. “Twins… wow.”
"Yeah- twins" she was still trying to process the whole thing. "Two kids…two…"
