The honeymoon was definitely over. Maylon and I were not seeing each other as often and there were rumors that Maylon was having an affair with a girl named Katherine. I knew Katherine, but not well. She was an acquaintance, someone whom I had met through another friend. We had spoken to one another briefly and then did not see each other again. She was a cute girl, with brown hair and a cute figure. We were about the same age.
My period was several weeks late. I hadn't told anyone, but my Mother was suspicious, and watching me like a hawk. Maylon came by and parked the Impala in front of my house, honking the horn for me to come out. My Mother didn't want me to go out to Maylon and we fought, but I left anyway.
Maylon and I drove around, parked in the country and talked. I told him my period was several weeks late. Maylon became very cold and told me he was enlisting in the Army and wouldn't be around, so I'd have to work things out for myself. He wasn't going to be around for me.
I went home facing the reality of the situation I was in. I didn't know if I was pregnant, but it was becoming increasingly more likely that I was. Every day I waited, hoping to start my period. But it didn't come. I spent more and more time in my bedroom. My Mother kept looking at my stomach. Life was tense and not very happy.
