Word Limit: 200 words
It had been a hot night, there had been a lot of booze, and Casey would be the first to admit she wasn’t proud of her actions. Sleeping with someone you just met is hardly advisable, and having unprotected sex is definitely inadvisable. Casey hadn’t meant for things to go that way, but in the heat of the moment, it can be hard to recognise the mistakes you’re making.
That brings us to today, two weeks later and even though she took the morning after pill her period is late. Biting her lip every minute seems like an eternity. It’s bad enough she has to listen to her roommate battering at the bathroom door, but as she waits her mind swirls with the ideas of all the judgment she’s going to get.
*Ding* her phone timer goes off, she closes her eyes and takes a big breath. Negative, the little minus sign is a relief. Her roommate is still banging on the door when she goes to open it, they yell at her for a bit but honestly Casey’s too relieved about the results to really listen.
