"I can't believe it, Cal."
"Well, you'd better."
"It's mad though. Oh my god."
"That's right Hannah. Oh. My. God."
"I couldn't believe how fiddly it was though. Thought I'd piss on my hand."
They both laughed. A staccato laugh that stopped abruptly.
"I opened the thingy, stuck it under me. I missed it at first. I mean, usually you're trying not to piss on things, aren't you?Weird trying to piss on something. Anyway, it took ages. You have to piss for ten seconds. I only just had enough. Then I had to wait for five minutes. Sat there, in the loo, just waiting. By the third minute I'd decided it was a boy. I'd decided to call him Jay, and that he'd grow up to be a pilot. That way he could take his old mum to places. All round the world. But in that last minute of waiting, it all went wrong. I thought my dad would probably chuck me out. I couldn't come to school with a big belly. I'd end up on my own, down the council, like that chavvy girl in my sister's class. Then I thought, I'm only little, I'd probably have a - what do you call it - miscarriage. Longest five minutes of my bloody life. That was just the test results."
"If waiting for test results was hard... just wait till you tell your mum. She'll go ballistic, Hann. You getting yourself pregnant. She'll go mental."
"Thing is, Cal..... I'm not pregnant." She looked down at her knees before lifting her eyes to meet her friend's "But I wish I was."
