|History|

Tommy is the child of Maxwell and Harriette Locke. His father is a big time lawyer and his mother is an active politician. Due to their jobs they were absent quite often, and Tommy spend most of his childhood with Tessa. Throughout primary, elementary, middle school and high school they were best friends. When it became time to look for colleges his father insisted he went to law school to follow in his fathers footsteps. Although Tommy definitely has the brains for it, his heart is not in it. But he had always had difficulties saying no, especially to his father and mother. Actually Tommy would much rather study history or archaeology.

College was the first time Tess was not by his side. Who was there, was another girl from high school, Melissa, the prom queen. She and Tommy, or Thomas as she insisted was his real name, started dating. She knows that Tommy doesn't like his study, but she agrees with his father that he will get way further with law than with anything else. She also insisted that he asked her to marry him. And just before going home for the holidays he actually did. He told his parents, but was hesitant to tell Tessa. He knew that Tessa had never been a big fan of Melissa.

Being home for he holidays while Melissa wasn't there (model shoot) gave him the option to go party with Tessa. It was quite the heavy party and Tommy doesn't exactly remember what happened. Now it is a week later and he has the idea he should tell Tessa about his engagement.

Tessa was running down the street that day while she was thinking about how everything had changed her best friend was in London when she could really use him she was pregnant and she didn't know who the father was and Tessa could feel that he was hiding something from her they used to never keep secrets she would even tell him when she had gotten her period that's how close they were she just wished there was an easy way to talk to him about this. As she was running she saw him and hollered "Hey Tommy!" and thought what a perfect time to tell him.

[hr] [/hr] [hr] [/hr]
Tommy closed his book and took the last sip of his coffee. He had been in the coffee shop early this morning to catch up a little bit on his studies. Why do teachers never realize when a holiday is coming up? He had come to London in his vacation, his home, the place he knew inside out. Studying at home would not have been an option. The house his parents now lived in was too large and too quiet. He needed some life around him when he was studying, voices in the background, and the sound of coffee cups dropping to the floor.
He put his book in his bag and grabbed his phone for a moment. No new messages… He sighed slightly, but he knew he shouldn’t expect any messages yet. Melissa was one another photo shoot, a nice way for her to spend her holidays. He had heard of the work that goes into something like that. He decided to send her a message himself. Hi Future wife, how is the shoot going? Miss you and see you back at school.
He thought of Tessa and especially about the fact that he hadn’t told her about the wedding yet. She should have been the first to know and honestly the draft of his text had been saved on his phone 5 minutes after the actual proposal, but it was never sent. He knew she wasn’t very fond of Melissa in the first place.
He got up and stuck up his hand to the waitress as a silent thank you. He threw his backpack over his shoulder and stepped to the door. Opening it he stepped out into the chilly London air. After walking towards home for about 5 minutes he heard a shout behind him. "Hey Tommy!" As he turned around he saw Tessa jogging towards him. ”Hey sporty spice, I surely hope you don’t expect me to run with you. What’s the schedule for today” Just a minute ago he had been so sure to tell her, but all of that certainty was gone in a split second.

Tessa looked at Tommy and said "Nothing much I actually have to talk to you." she tried saying something without sounding to terrible or to try not to sound suspicious but beside her own problems she was looking at him but he looked like he had something on his mind something important "Do you have something to tell me you look worried about something?" she said she was curious but he looked like he had a terrible burden on him though he had his own problems Tessa kept on thinking about her problems she was a girl with a baby on the way her best friend had no clue about it and deep inside she was dying without a doubt but above the surface she was happy she was going to have a baby she had no clue who the father is but that didn't matter to her she wanted to share it with her best friend.

While waiting for an answer she began filling her head with thoughts of what could be wrong with him she was worried about him and didn't and wouldn't be prepared for him to tell her this she was scared and anxious about the answer but she waited patiently for him to respond.

Sorry for the late response I just kept on rewriting it because it kept on deleting on me, my apologize

"Wow, you have to talk to me, sounds serious." He wondered what she had to say. He laughed a bit as if he want to show her he had nothing serious to tell her. "Do you have something to tell me you look worried about something?" Tommy was always surprised how well she could read him. He wondered if he actually really needed to tell her something, or if she could just read every secret right of his face. She looked at him with a look of worry. It was the look Tommy hated, the look that made him spill every single word he had kept from her.

"Okay, there is something I wanted to tell you." He felt like he was doing confession in church. Maybe he would be better off telling her in baby steps, letting her get used to the idea instead of unloading the full truth on her. "I just wanted to tell you that me and Melissa have gotten a lot more serious over the past few months. We're still together and it seems to be going better than ever." He paused to let the information get through to her. [color=700000]"I just wanted to let you know, before you hear it from anyone else."[/color] He waited to see the look on her face, he sincerely hoped she wouldn't be to upset. He knew very well she didn't like her, but he didn't want to lose his best friend over this. A choice between the two girls seemed impossible to him.

Trying to change the subject he asked Tessa. "So, what was so urgent that you couldn't wait telling me about?" He honestly couldn't think of what this would be about. As so many times over the past few weeks he tried to remember the last time he had gotten home. They had been out partying heavily, and most of the evenings he had to len back from pictures. He had never been so drunk in his life, but it looked to him that both Tessa and himself had really needed it. The numbers in his phone and the photo's on his phone told him a story he had never told Melissa. There were girls, drinks and poses on those pictures he had absolutely no memory off. He had deleted most of them, unless they were of Tessa and him, he had pictures of that since early childhood, so it didn't look too suspicious.

Tessa heard what he said but didn't know if she wanted to she hated Melisa with all her guts what if they got engaged or what if they were because that wouldn't surprise her he always tries to butter things up and eventually never tell her. She didn't know how to react to all of this so she looked at him with really big eyes and said "How Can You Do This To Me are you going to marry her and have children together." Tess could not believe this she was hurt and betrayed and she felt alone with nobody she could talk to a lone ghost with a hurt soul she could not believe he would do this to her the enemy the one person she hated with all her might the girl who slept with her father and broke up her parents the girl who made her mom turn Lesbian and the woman who tortured Tessa all through high school, middle school, and elementary school how could she learn to forgive this woman would be to forgive Hitler who killed all those people how could the world do that and if the world can't do it she can't do it.

Tessa was distracted for a minute by the look what Tommy was giving her like a worried look but with a hint of curiosity he noticed that she had really big news that would or might bring their relationship up in the dust so she looked at him and said "I'm sorry for the out burst it's just that I'm upset and there is something I am going through it is a hormonal thing a girl/woman thing," she said with a long pause not knowing how to tell her best friend the person that helped her through her first period she had no idea who the father was and she had a feeling that would be the first question he would ask about who the father was he was a man she could trust and this would be the first person she would tell ".....I'm Pregnant." she said is a calm voice.
