We took things slow, the two of us going out on dates with one another frequently. However, I knew that my child was growing within myself, and I wanted to tell him about it sometime soon. I know that Makoto was a busy man, but I did want to let him know so that it wouldn’t be too awkward for us. But how was I supposed to do it? How could I tell him?
O started to grow a bit distant with him, unsure of how to tell him about the child. He would call me, trying to ask if I wanted to see him, but then I would say that I was busy. I felt bad for lying to him, telling him that I was busy when I really want’, but at the same time, I knew for a fact that it would only make things worse if I told him. I was scared to, and I didn’t know how to.
It had been about a month since I started to distance myself. I was growing a bit bigger, and my emotions were going haywire. He stopped contacting me, and that’s when I realized that I probably did worry him. He probably assumed that I wasn’t interested, which might be for the best.

I listened to those words, hoping the held true after I revealed it to him.
“Well, there’s a reason why I’ve been avoiding you. There’s something I’ve wanted to tell you for a while, but I was afraid you would leave. But I guess if you want to know, then here it is,” I said.

“Pregnant. Yes I’m pregnant. The child is yours,” I said.
At that moment, there was a stunned silence, and I knew for a fact that it was something that was going to test our relationship? Would he help me with the responsibility? Or would he just leave me to the side like how I was expecting things to go? I could only hope for the best.
