prescription for birth control pills. The doctor said he couldn't

tests he ran, established that her probable date of conception was late
earlier that year. Her due date was set in April of the following year.
this did not require modification of "the
plan" as it was referred to, it did speed up the wedding a bit, and it
brought a whole new significance to the dating other people thing. Now

Mandy and Jack were going to return to
school as step-siblings.
one sense, though, it made it easier to get the
whole scam off to a great start. Mandy was able to deliver the news to
friends that her father had "saddled her" with Jack Ross as her new
step brother, and commiserate with them about her misfortune. When one
girls said, "I think he's kind of cute," that allowed Mandy to say,
"Well, you can have him. He farts and eats all our food and
leaves his stinky shoes lying around."

school, calling each other brother and sister and achieving a sort of
level of peaceful coexistence with each other. People expected them to
get along, so they gradually did that. But it was clear to their friends that their relationship was based on the tolerance required of two young people who had been forced into close contact. They were, as things turned out, both good actors.
then, when they got home, behind closed doors,
Jack mounted his lover and rodded her long, deep,
and continuous, as they reaffirmed their undying love
for each other.
Bob's and Karen's parents had passed on, so there
was a small, hastily thrown together wedding to which some teachers,
parts store employees,
and some volunteers of the Boggy Creek Restoration
Project were invited. Karen and Bob settled into married life with very
bumps. Their primary concern was that there wasn't enough room in
for both teens to have their own room, much less have a room to use as
nursery for the baby. To that end, they worked with a realtor in town,
both their houses on the market, and looking for something bigger.
There were a
number of suitable properties on the market that would fill their needs
but the economy in that part of the world was depressed. While that
was a buyer's market for them, not many people were interested in
Bob's or Karen's homes for their full worth. Taking a leap of faith,
decided to rent out their old houses and buy a new one, a bank
which they got for a song.

changes that would result when they left home for college was a little
worrisome. So, too, was the pressure for their relationships in public

talking about this, Jack and Mandy agreed that
something more than kissing might be required on dates during their
year. That said, neither wanted to do more than was necessary to keep
going. But even that ended up causing some difficulties. On one date
with a boy
named Reggie Cooper, Mandy's bullshit meter malfunctioned. She thought

extricate herself from that by telling him she wasn't on the pill and
terrified of becoming pregnant. He tried everything, from telling her
out, to swearing he could get her the morning after pill, but she
had to take her home. He wasn't happy, but he didn't push it, no doubt
that he'd have better luck in the future, when he would be sure to have
