Rain:423: Support

(Redirected from 423:Support)

Synopsis

Emily tells Fara that she has been pregnant since late October, and Fara tells Emily that she will support her, regardless of her decision

Author Notes

Deep, heavy stuff. Besides the obvious topic of Emily’s pregnancy (and her decision concerning it), these pages introduce quite a few new things about her background as well.

I'm trying my damnedest to leave "pro-life vs pro-choice" arguments out of the story, but I did get a few comments on the matter with the previous page. So, while I’m afraid I may be opening Pandora’s Box here, I’m actually just very curious about the general consensus: Is Emily making a big mistake with this? Is this potentially a good thing for her? Is there a right or wrong answer at all? Similarly, do you think Fara is handling the situation well, by not being pushy and leaving things up to Emily? (I know this can be a heated topic, but please do try to keep it clean and respect the opinions of your fellow readers even if you disagree.)

Transcript 

Do your parents know?
No. I never knew my dad, and my mom's been on one business trip after another.
I haven't actually seen her since early October..
...and it happened in late October.
That long ago? Are... are you keeping it?

Emily is slient

Is that why you were asking me if I had kids this weekend?
My mom never answers her phone, and I don't have any other close family. My ex is basically gone from my life. I'm kind of alone.
I'm afraid to talk about it with anyone in school, because I don't know what'll happen to me if one of the faculty finds out.
You know you're not going to have the luxury of hiding it much longer.
You're probably going to start showing soon.
I know...
If you want to keep it, you have my support. If you change your mind - because you still have time - you have my support. I'm not going to push or judge you either way.
This is your decision. But I will back you up every step of the way.
Thank you.
