"I need to see him, alone." Fergie couldn't help it. She was adamant. She and Trevor needed to talk, without Benny nor Keith.
Benny nodded as he understood. Naturally, he had to drag Keith out of the visitation room. It was as if the two of them were her bodyguards.
"You're not mad? Are you?" Fergie looked Trevor over. He looked as ever bit adorable as she imagined. None of those guys on Tiger Beat were better than the real deal before her.
He shook his head. Now he was the quiet one, as he looked at Fergie.
"So, I guess your family is really pissed," Trevor said.
"So what," Fergie shrugged. "I'm with Benny and Keith now."
"But..what about after the baby?" Trevor kept staring at her as if she weren't coming back, but moving on.
She shrugged, again. "What do you want, me? To do?" Fergie hadn't though about it. She was thinking more about getting a cold berry smoothie when she got out of here. That, and wishing he could come with her.
"I just..wondered..if..you'd be around?" Trevor shrugged. He told her he wasn't going anywhere.
"Yeah, of course. I'll go home. Go back to school." Fergie smiled as if it were a simple remedy.
"Yeah, and I won't see you." His voice cracked, and suddenly a painful emotion filled her as if she should some how bust him out of here, so they could be together. She grabbed his hands quick, savoring the weight of each finger and his moist palms.
"I'll see you, next week. Since I know where this place is now." She sighed. "Simon could bring me."
"Simon?" Trevor winced. "That's..who you're seeing now?"
"No." She squinted a laugh as if that must have been a joke. "He's really weird, but I've known him since grade school."
Trevor nodded as if he doubted she'd be back, but he hugged her before she left. And the baby kicked, quite a wallop. It hadn't move hardly all day, until now.
Trevor sighed as if he couldn't believe it happened, like an unexpected pleasure. For moment, she really felt they were family.
