Richelle wasn’t at school and there are whispers that her parents are making her get an abortion. I’m fairly sure that was made up, as she’s been pregnant for a while and her parents would rather her raise the baby and deal with the consequences than take the so-called easy way out. Not that anything is easy when you’re dealing with a young pregnancy.
Alana was very excited to find out about me and Jack and she asked how it was and I said she knows and Alana said yeah, sorry, it gets better. It’s amazing how much commotion the simple act of losing your virginity can create. It’s such a private act and yet everyone simply must know about it and they feel it’s their right. I never even made a vocal deal about being a virgin in the first place. With Jack I had to. My friends would always remind me. It was a hard thing to avoid. Now it’s gone. Jack’s happy, at least!
