Where do the good go

"You need Todd." Sarah looked at Lucy as if she might be crazy. "You can't just up and leave, now. He's doing his best, to take care of you."

Lucy was on bed rest at home now after the scare.

"This is the last place I need to be." Lucy protested. "I just ..want to be safe." She winced then. "I don't feel safe here, Sarah."

"You just need some time, that's all," Sarah said. "It won't belong now." Sarah did her best to make Lucy feel comfortable. She put an extra pillow behind her favorite HELLO KITTY pillow that she was laying back on.

"Yeah, and then I'm stuck with a kid. Then what?" Lucy's face tensed.

"But you always wanted this baby, didn't you?" Sarah sat next to Lucy then.

"I thought so, until now. But I'm scared. Anything could go wrong. I'm not sure I can handle it." Lucy turned from her.

"You will. You'll see. You'll make a great Mom." Sarah told her as she put her arm around her.

Lucy shook her head, no.

"Its a mess, its just a mess." Lucy talked about going back to the house. Her father's house. "I belong there. I should have stayed there. Never asked anything from Todd. Its even too late for even him and Spence now. He's met someone new."

"You can't just throw this all away now. You can't. Todd won't let you." Sarah was quiet then. She was sure she said it all wrong. But Todd did want to help. He would be there for Lucy, the thick and thin.

I can see she's so upset. Hopefully, she's not gonna call it quits with him.

I know she's scared, but they need to stick together.
