Three months have passed since that horrible night
and Ted has been fighting so hard to deracinate thoughts of the incident from his mind, all to no avail. It seemed to come up when he was doing just about anything, except sleep. On one night, he even had a nightmare of the grave consequences of his actions. He didn't knew they were only few days away.
Back in school, his grades experienced a sharp decline as he found it hard to focus on studies. He missed more classes than he attended and was absent minded even when he was on his sit, with eyes fixed on the teacher's eyeballs.
Ted saw a blur image of his parents just as he lifted his head from the pillow which he had laid it on. He was still fazed between reality and dreams when he wiped his face with his hands.
There they stood, without those faces he knew clearly indicated that something isn't right. What might that be? Have they discovered his secret affair with Laura? If So, How Did They?
Those thoughts rang through his mind as Ted was escorted downstairs by her parents to behold the sight of a weeping young girl. He was still elusive to what was happening until he noticed their family doctor just beside the girl who has by then raised up her face. So, it was Laura. Her parents were sitted with also mean faces and it was only then Ted understood what was going on.
The discussion that ensued confirmed his fears. Ted's parents told him he was to stop schooling and then get a job so he can cater for his new family. Laura was pregnant! the doctor confirmed.
Ted already knew the type of parents he had.He was to bear responsibility for his actions.
His parents shortly after,reminded him of how often they had discussed with the damages teenage sex does.He was now to have a taste of the pills.
The last favor they extended to their son was that of getting him a menial job in the neighborhood.

At the assembly, it was announced that Ted and Laura has been expelled from school.
