Three's a crowd, and so it becomes two

“Is it mine?” 

The girl clutches the phone shakily to her ear, fixing her school uniform’s collar. “He couldn’t be anybody’s but yours. I’ve only been with” 

“I’m—we’re too young. What do we tell our parents?” he demands.  

She absentmindedly rubs her stomach. “I can’t do this alone.” 

“I’m sorry,” he says, voice tight. She squeezes her eyes shut, forcing back tears. He sighs, exasperated. “I’ll get a job. Send you money every month.” 

“He’ll want to know who you are,” she whispers. “Please, we could be a fami” 

The line goes dead. She stands alone, cradling her stomach.
word count: 99. Ernest Hemingway's ability to leave a story unsaid but so there (see: "Hills Like White Elephants") is so admirable, and I can only hope to have tried my best at doing the same! 

After doing some research, I've found that it is indeed possible to be pregnant for 12 weeks (minimum time to discover the baby's sex) and not know!
