*Request* He questions if he's the father of the baby. (Ed Sheeran)
A/N: This is my first Ed imagine/fanfic thingy. So, I hope you like it.
It has been two months since you and Ed broke it off. You both lie and say that it was a mutual decision, but you know it was more your idea. You never would think you would be the girl that would be bothered by the distance, but it bothered you. A lot. In the end, it was just too much and it was like dating him was a chore and you told him it would be best if you split up. He wasn’t happy, he said that you were just like the other girls and was convinced there was another man involved, but once he cooled down he agreed and you moved out the next day. You hadn’t seen Ed since that night, but now here you are, right outside his door trying to get the nerve to knock. You take a deep breath and knock lightly on the door. You stand there for what seems like forever with no answer. You knock again, louder this time, and you here quite curses and shuffling from inside. You have to fight with yourself to stay, worried what you would see when that door opens. The door jolts open, revealing a disheveled Ed wearing his thick framed glasses, a hoodie, and an annoyed scowl. You jump slightly at the abruptness and his eyes soften a bit.
“Hi, what are you doing here?” he asks, not mean, but curious.
“Can we talk?” you answer his question with another.
“Uh, yeah. Sure.” He steps aside and you enter, what used to be your flat. “So, uh..”
“You were writing?” you interrupt, seeing the coffee table littered with papers and his guitar.
“Oh, yeah. I’ve been writing a lot lately, actually.” He hurries to collect everything and move it out of sight. You sit on the new couch and he sits on the other end, farthest from you. “So what do you need to talk about?”
“It’s kinda hard for me to say. But I just need to come out and say it.” The nerves boiling in your stomach.
“Like a band-aid.” He adds and you nod.
“Like a band-aid.” You take a deep breath, and look into his eyes. They are the same deep blue that you remember. “I’m pregnant.” You keep looking in his eyes, waiting for a reaction, but there wasn’t one. “…With your baby.” You continue, starting to get scared. Finally, he lets out a bitter laugh and looks to the ceiling.
“Are you fucking kidding me, right now?” Your eyebrows furrow at his tone. “You expect me to believe that you are pregnant with my child?”
“That’s exactly what I expect you to believe.” You say.
“Well, I don’t. I can’t believe you would be so desperate to get me back that you would say that you are pregnant.” Then, it was your turn to laugh.
“Oh get over yourself, Ed! If you remember, I was the one that wanted out.” You say, standing up.
“Exactly! We’ve been broken up for over two months! That could be anybodies baby for all I know!” You flinch at his statement.
“I’m 10 weeks! Who else’s could it be? Unless I’m the next fucking Mother Mary, this is your child! I don’t know what I was thinking coming here, I guess I thought you were going to trust me and tell me that you still love me and everything would be okay, but it’s obvious now that that was ridiculous. So, I’m going to go.” You turned to leave, but he grabbed your arm.
“T-that’s my baby?” he whispered and looked to your stomach.
“Yeah.” You nod.
“I’m going to be a dad?” he asked, his eyes still alternating between your eyes and stomach.
“I don’t know, are you?”
“There’s nothing I want more.” He breaks into a huge grin and grabs your face and smashes his lips to yours. “I’m so sorry. I love you so much.” He says between kisses and you pull back, letting the words soak in. He leans forward and presses his forehead to yours, his arms smoothing up and down your sides.
“Marry me.” He says, more of a statement than a question. You shake your head and move away.
“Ed, I don’t think-“
“Marry me.” He demands this time, in his eyes there is so much determination and love.
