"I can't wait to break the news to everybody," Chris stated with a grin as he set his bags down.
Hunter nodded, setting his own bags down on the floor by the couch. They had managed to snag their own locker room for the tapings that nights, and Hunter couldn't have been more happy about the fact. He wanted nothing more than to cuddle up with Chris all night while watching the show, planning to leave his pregnant lover only when he absolutely had to for his match.
"I'll go talk to Vince right away," Chris continued. "I'm not booked for anything tonight, but I'd better let him know that it'd be better if I didn't have to wrestle 'til the PPV, when I'll drop the belt."
"Want me to go with you?" Hunter inquired.
"Nah, I'm a big boy, I can do things on my own." Chris smiled, giving Hunter a peck on the cheek before going off to find the owner's office.
Hunter debated between waiting in the locker room and going out to mingle with the guys, eventually deciding that he might as well take some time to hang with his friends while Chris was busy. He wasn't planning on spreading the news of the baby quite yet; he and Chris planned to do that together.
Leaving his bags sitting in the locker room, Hunter set off for catering, trying to keep the huge grin off his face. His grin quickly turned into a frown as he passed Kurt Angle in the hall, the other man catching his arm to stop him.
"Hunter, I need to talk to you," Kurt hissed urgently.
Hunter glared at him. "Kurt, you know that we're over!" he whispered. "What we did was a mistake. I told you that a month ago when I ended it. I'm through being unfaithful; Chris is the only man in my life now."
"I know that, and I accepted that," Kurt replied. "This is REALLY important, though!"
Hunter eyed him suspiciously. "We're just friends now Kurt. If you're trying to blackmail me with the threat of telling Chris - "
"No!" Kurt scowled. "I'm not some lowlife, Hunter. I don't want to tell Chris, but he's gonna have to find out."
Hunter's eyes narrowed. "Don't you dare give me some shit about a guilty conscience!" he hissed. "You know how damn hard it was for me to commit to Chris, and he - "
"It's not about that Hunter!" Kurt took a deep breath. "This is serious Hunter. I didn't want this to happen, but, well, it did, and there's nothing we can do about it now! You see, I...I'm..." He took Hunter's hand and squeezed it, looking pleadingly into his eyes. "Hunter I'm pregnant," he whispered.
"What?" Hunter shouted, quickly clearly his throat and glancing around self consciously. "Kurt, you've got to be kidding me!"
"I'm not." There were tears in Kurt's eyes. The brunette had to swallow hard. "Hunter I didn't want this, not now anyway, not in this situation, but it happened. I'm pregnant."
Hunter took a deep breath, leaning his forehead against the wall. "I can't believe this is happening to me. Geez!" He shook his head, taking another deep breath. "Ok, this is what we're gonna do. I'm gonna get the name of a good clinic, and I'll set up an appointment for you, and - "
"No!" Kurt exclaimed, his arms moving protectively around his middle. "Absolutely not. I didn't plan this baby, Hunter, but there's no way I'm getting rid of it! Never!
"Kurt - " Hunter began.
"No!" Kurt insisted. "I'm having this baby Hunter!" His lip quivered a bit, tears filling his eyes. "Hunter please, you have to be with me on this," he whispered. "I - I can't do this alone! I need you. I want my baby to have a good daddy, and I need you to help me through everything. I know you say you love Chris, Hunter, but you need to be with me! You did this to me! I didn't want this!" Kurt sniffed, wiping at his eyes. "Please Hunter," he begged.
"Kurt, you don't understand." Hunter closed his eyes, his forehead still pressed against the wall.
"What don't I understand? That - that you're just gonna leave me to deal with this on my own? That you've gonna abandon me when I need you most? That you're just gonna bail on your own child?" Kurt demanded.
"No." Hunter kept his eyes tightly closed. "Kurt, Chris is pregnant."
Kurt's eyes widened. "Pregnant?" he squeaked.
Hunter nodded, opening his eyes a crack and glancing at the other man. "Yes, he is. I can't leave him Kurt, he's carrying my baby!"
"Well so am I!" Kurt hissed. "You can't just leave me to deal with this alone, Hunter, even if he is pregnant!"
"Oh god." Hunter shook his head. "I can't believe this! I really can't believe this!"
"Hunter." Kurt frowned, shuffling his feet. "You aren't gonna bail out on me are you? You're not gonna pick him and his baby over mine? M-my baby's as much yours as his is! I need you Hunter, I need you to get me through this!"
Hunter swallowed, standing up straight and running a hand through his
hair to straighten it. "You're right. I'm gonna have to deal with this."
He made a pained face. "I'm gonna have to tell Chris. Shit." He took Kurt's
arm, propelling him back towards their locker room. "Come on, let's get
this over with," he sighed.
