I woke up to Oona sneaking into my bed. She always escapes her crib. I'm not even sure how. "What are you doing in here?" I asked her. Her eyes went wide and she hid under the blankets. I couldn't be too mad. I loved that she loved me. "I just don't want you getting hurt when you escape your room," I told her. I rubbed my eyes and stretched. After waking up a bit, I felt something was off. I felt different. I felt bloated. Really bloated. I sighed and sat up. When I looked down, I had a baby bump. And I mean a huge baby bump. I'm not even sexually active! How did I wake up pregnant?! Oona sensed me freaking out and started crying. I didn't know what to do.

Katherine was standing in my doorway. "What is going on--..omg..you're pregnant?!" Katherine exclaimed. She walked over to me. "Just breathe...this had to be Cora's work..right?" she asked. I looked at her. She was right. This had to be Cora. "Yeah..see...you're fine," she reassured me. She took a seat on my bed. Oona crawled over and laid her head on my belly. I pet her head. "Look...if you don't want the baby, I'll take her," Katherine said. "Her?" I asked. Katherine nodded with a smile. "It is a girl. I've always wanted to be a mother, but it never worked out the way I planned," she told me. I wasn't about to give my baby away regardless of how she got inside my womb. "Thanks for the offer...but I'd like to raise her on my own," I told her, avoiding eye contact. She stood up. "Good luck," she said, and walked out of the room. I couldn't believe this. I was going to need Rosie around. I felt like I was about to pop any second.
