Straight away after Christmas Pippa had taken Fin's recommendation and gone to see Hex. He told her it was much too early to tell if she was preggers but he ran an STI panel, just to see. He told her it was a bit early to tell that, either.

Ever since, she had been peeing on sticks every few days, just waiting for her period to come. But it didn't. And it didn't. And now she was officially late. By two weeks. But every stick said negative. And so she had made arrangements with Hex once more, not wanting to go to her regular doctor because of her 'condition' as well as Akeem's. No, the NHS wasn't equipped to deal with Fae or werewolves.

And so she set a time to meet with Hex and then went to Akeem's shop to see if he'd come with her. No call, no text, she simply dropped in.

"Akeem?" she called into the book shop. "Are you in here somewhere?"

Akeem's head popped into view from behind a doorframe, and then he walked into the main room of the shop. "Pippa," he greeted her with a small smile, walking over to her. "How are you?"

"Oh, of course," Akeem agreed after barely a pause. "I'll close up early." And do the day's accounts tomorrow. "I'll just be five minutes."

Akeem climbed into the car after her and let her talk to the driver before settling back. "How are you, really?" he asked, reaching for her hand.

Akeem brought her hand to his lips and kissed her fingers. "We'll know soon enough, now, one way or the other." He had no idea how long it would take; he reckoned that depended on how friendly the nurse they were going to was with the lab technicians.

"Akeem," he introduced himself as he shook the nurse's hand, his left one on Pippa's back. He looked apologetic for her outburst, but said nothing, just went inside with her.

"That's all right," Akeem shook his head. "A friend's taking care of mine."

Akeem took her into his arms, first, and pressed a kiss to her forehead. "It's your body. I'll be there, whatever you decide."

He did not want to be a father, but he would not abandon his child, if that was what she wanted.

"It's not real yet," he told her, arms warm around her, chin tucked on her hair. "It might not be a decision at all."

"I don't think anyone's ever ready for an unexpected pregnancy," Akeem told her quietly. "But whatever happens, you're not going to go through it alone, Pippa."

"You might want to be done of me, first," Akeem pointed out, cupping her face in her hand. "But if you want to keep this child -" if there was a child, "then we'll do the adult thing, and still be his parents, no matter what."

"I'm here," Akeem told her quietly, moving a hand to her hair, cradling her head and holding her to him.

Akeem dropped his hand from her head to her waist, so that she could stay in his arms to hear the results if she preferred that, but he would also let her go if she moved away.

"Thank you," Akeem added with a nod, and a small smile for the nurse. He felt rather weak with relief, he had to admit.
