Allie woke up to a sound she couldn’t quite place. She looked over at the redhead sleeping next to her and smiled before hearing the noise again, someone throwing up? She sat up quickly and made her way out to Debbie’s bathroom. She heard the sound again this time knowing her suspicions were right. She knocked on the door and stood there for a few seconds before it opened.
“Hey sweetheart, not feeling too hot, huh?”
“Yeah. Think it must have been something from where I ate dinner.” Debbie gave her a small smile as she started to brush her teeth.
“You sure you’re okay?” If there was one thing Allie wasn’t the best at it was dealing with a puking Debbie, or anyone for that fact.
“I’m fine mamma, already feeling better. I’m gonna go back to bed.” She gave Allie a tight hug. “Love you”
“Love you too, kiddo.” She gave Debbie a kiss on the head before heading back to her own bedroom.
Climbing back into bed she wrapped her arms around Bea. “Everything okay baby?” the redhead’s voice raspy and sleep filled
“Yeah, Deb just has a small case of food poisoning” she placed a kiss on the back of Bea’s neck never receiving a response.
Two weeks later
“Hey mamma,” Debbie’s voice was quiet had Allie not been paying attention she wouldn’t have heard her.
“Hey sweetheart,” Allie quickly glanced up from her computer giving her daughter a small smile.
“Can I uh, can I talk to you? If you don’t have a patient or whatever.” Allie closed her computer finally catching Debbie's eyes. Her heart sunk seeing the 16 year old on the verge of tears.
“What’s wrong sweetie?” Allie moves from her desk to her couch, patting the spot next to her. “Come sit with me”
Debbie quickly took a seat next to the blonde, snuggling into her. “Promise me you won’t be mad?” She let the tears free fall.
“I promise Deb, did you wreck the car or something?” Allie pulled the teen closer to her.
“No. It’s worse” Debbie cried into Allie’s chest. Allie knew Debbie had more than Beas looks. Allie gently stroked her back hoping the comfort was enough.
She gently lifted Debbie’s chin to look her in the eyes. “Okay well whatever it is -“ she was cut off by Debbie's sudden outburst.
“I’m pregnant” Allie’s whole body went stiff for a minute before relaxing. She let out a sigh
“Okay. Uh, okay. I’ll go to the store and get a test. We can take it together,” she choked back tears hoping her voice sounded as strong and calm as she thought.
“I already took like ten. I also, I uh, I went to the clinic, the one Aunt Bridget works at. They did a blood test there and” she was crying again Allie held her closer
“Okay, does mum know? Was this your first time? How far along are you?”
Debbie’s eyes widened and she stared at Allie “No mum doesn’t know. I don’t even know how to tell her. Only you and aunt Bridget know. I don’t know how far along I am. No it wasn’t my first time, I’m sorry I didn’t tell you” she found Allie’s gaze again “you’re not mad?”
“No, I'm not mad. And Debbie, i know we’re close but please don’t be sorry for not telling me, or mum, that you started having sex. You do know you have to tell mum right? While I am comfortable keeping some stuff between us, this isn’t one of those things. The sooner you tell her the better.”
“She’s gonna kill me, mamma.” Debbie sounded and look genuinely scared.
“Hey, give her a little more credit than that. She’s not gonna kill you. She’ll be upset but she won’t kill you.”
"Can you tell her?”
“Nah deb, I’ll be there but you have to tell her.” Debbie nodded and lay down placing her head in Allie’s lap.
“Can we stay here for a little while? Just me laying on you?” Debbie asked through her tears.
“Of course. I just have one question. You weren’t throwing up from food poisoning a few weeks ago were you?” Debbie just shook her head in response.
“Thank you for telling me” There was no response from Debbie, just some sniffles and ragged breathing.
Bea came home to a quiet house. Nothing unusual she figured Allie was in her office and Deb was doing homework. Peeking her head in Debbie's room, not seeing her, she made her way downstairs to Allie's office. She smiled at the sight before her. Her daughter asleep in her wife’s lap allies head on the back of the couch sleeping too. She quietly made her way over to the pair.
“Hey babe” she gently kissed the blondes forehead waking her
“Hi.” She gave Bea a quick kiss before bringing a hand up to massage her neck “let’s let Debbie sleep for a little bit, she had a rough day”
“Okay?” Bea said looking down at the teen “I’m gonna get started on dinner, how’s pasta? Don’t feel much like cooking tonight. Don’t let Deb sleep too long, she’ll be up all night.” Allie just smiled and nodded
“Love you too, babe” Bea leaned down giving Allie another kiss before heading to the kitchen.
Allie and deb joined Bea in the kitchen awhile later. Bea noticed deb was quieter than normal and definitely not eating as much as normal.
“Deb everything okay?” Bea took a forkful of pasta into her mouth.
“Yeah, I just have to tell you something but you're gonna be mad” deb didn’t look up from her plate, absentmindedly pushing her food around.
“Come on deb, you can tell me. Did ya wreck the car?” Debbie shook her head at her moms question. Allie grabbed Beas hand to get her attention. The look in her eyes telling her patience was the key
Debs voice as shaking “I’m scared”
“Sweetie you have to tell her” Allie’s voice was sweet and calm. Bea raised an eyebrow at her curious.
“Okay” she took a deep breath and was quiet for a minute “please don’t be mad. Mum, okay, uh well,” she took another deep breath. She stared at her plate unable to make eye contact with either of her mothers, “ fuck. I’m pregnant”
