"You mean so much to me," Nate says. "I can't imagine loving someone more. And I want to ask you to marry me?"
She turns and raises herself up on one elbow to look at him. "Oh Nate..."
"We don't have to get married right away," he says. "We can wait until you've graduated. But I wanted you to know that I want to marry you."
"Of course I will," she says. "I love you, Nate."
"Well?" Ellie asks. "What does it say?"
Meg is almost too numb to respond. "You were right. I'm pregnant."
"Are you sure?" he asks.
Meg nods. "I went to the doctor today. I'm due at the beginning of October."
He doesn't have to ask if she's going to keep it; he can tell by the way she said it and by the way her hand rests on her stomach.
"We'll get married," he says. "As soon as possible."
It's not the romantic proposal Meg had dreamed about, but none of this is happening how she planned. She's just glad she won't have to go through this alone.

I'm so glad to be back to updating! After several days of trying, I finally got Providence installed on my new computer last weekend. I had been worried about running the game on Windows 7, but it runs beautifully. Load times are so much shorter, and the screen resolution is better.
There's so much drama this round! Curtis kept getting into fights all round, and he never rolls college wants, so I had him drop out and move back to Bridgeport. His LTW is to be the top of the Criminal career, so dropping out makes sense for him. Toby Wright is quite a heartbreaker! Both Gabriella Newson and Georgia London are in love with him, but he isn't in love with either of them. We'll see what happens next year.
Meg rolled the pregnancy ROS this round; like her mother, she'll be a mom when she graduates next year. She and Christian are both going to stay in college, but they'll have to move to an apartment off-campus.
There are only a few more households before the next round! This round really feels like it's dragged on because of all of my computer programs, and I can't wait to start the next one. I've already rolled the ROS, and there are some big ones!
