Niall woke up to two nurses fanning him.
"Well you fainted love, right after the doctor told you about-"
"That was real?" Niall said shocked.
"I’m afraid so love" she patted his shoulder. "You are in fact pregnant" Niall rubbed his head. "Everything will work out fine, I know it will" He smiled and got up. They made sure he was ok before letting him drive home.
He was excited, really he was. But he was also terrified. This was a baby. An actual, living breathing human being inside him. The thought made him smile. He was going to be a dad! Liam was going to be a dad! Liam…..he had to tell Liam. But what if Liam didn’t want the kid, they were busy all the time, the press about it would be a lot to handle, it would be a lot of stress added on top of him. He just felt that maybe he shouldn’t do that to Liam right now, worry him so much. So he decided right then and there that he wasn’t going to tell Liam just yet. But he had to tell someone so he made one extra turn and was on his way to Zayn’s instead of his and Liam’s flat.
He knocked on the door, looking at his reflection in the glass to see if he was showing yet. He wasn’t, which he found was actually quite a let down.
"Hey Ni, what ya need?" Zayn opened the door and let him in talking as he walked back to the kitchen where he was making lunch.
"Um I need to tell you something" He leaned up against the counter watching as Zayn put something in the oven. "What are you making?" the smell was making Niall’s mouth water, he had just eaten but the smell was making him want it, he craved it. And he realized that it was probably a pregnancy craving.
"It’s just some leftover take out I’m warming up" Niall took a deep breath smelling the food.
"Do you have enough to share?"
"With a normal person yes, with you no" Niall laughed and punched him in the shoulder.
"Well I’m going to eat some whether you like it or not" Zayn smiled and jumped up to sit on the counter facing Niall.
"So what did you need to tell me" Zayn looked down at him waiting.
"Um I don’t really know how to say this…but I’m pregnant" Zayn started coughing and choking on the water he had just drank.
"I’m pregnant Zayn"
"Like baby, growing in your stomach? How does that even happen?"
"I don’t really know, all my doctor said was that he had heard of some cases recently with male pregnancies"
"So you’re really going to be a dad huh? Niall nodded, a smile breaking out on his face. Zayn jumped down from the counter and wrapped him in his arms.
"I’m happy for you mate!"
Zayn walked with Liam through the store, they were both running out of clothes that fit them properly and the boys had discovered that it was best if they went shopping together so they didn’t pick up the same shirt seeing as how they wear each others all the time.
"I still can’t believe it Li, you and Niall are going to be dads. it’s unbelievable!" Liam stopped right where he was.
"I said I’m happy for you two. Niall being pregnant and all" Liam’s eyes grew wide. Niall was pregnant? Was that even possible?
"Oh yeah, right" Liam said. He was hurt though that Niall hadn’t told him, but he had told Zayn. What was that? He was his boyfriend after all.
He walked through the rest of the day in a sort of daze. His mind constantly going over Zayn’s words again and again hoping that he would believe them soon.
"Hey babe! I ordered pizza, hope you don’t mind" Liam walked in, setting the bags down. "Babe, what’s wrong?" Niall looked at Liam and knew that something had happened.
"You didn’t tell me"
"YOU TOLD ZAYN BEFORE ME! How could you do that Niall?" Niall’s eyes grew wide.
"Liam I didn’t want you to worry, but I had to tell someone and Zayn was there so"
"So you told our best mate that you’re pregnant with my child before you told me!" there was clear anger pulsing through him.
"Liam I’m sorry" Niall walked closer towards him. "You are under a lot of stress, I just didn’t want to give you one more thing to worry about"
"But that one thing is a baby Niall. Our baby" his tone was softer now.
"I’m sorry Liam, really I am. Please forgive me." Liam sighed and took Niall’s hands in his.
"You’re really pregnant, we’re actually going to be dads?"
"Yes, we’re really going to be dads" Niall said smiling. His smile was infectious and soon spread to Liam’s. He kissed Niall and hugged him.
"I’m happy Niall, we can do this, I know it"
