will rolled over and faced sonny.
"i love you..." he whispered. as he said this, his heart swelled up. and he knew that sonny was it for him. he didn't want anyone but sonny, not now, not ever. and will was going to work his a** off to try and become close to deserving sonny.
"i love you to, will." sonny replied, lifting his hand to caress will's cheek.
"i'm going to be a father..." will murmered, "what's going to happen to us when i become a dad? i remembered hearing you say you weren't ready for a family... i can't," will's voice choked up, "i can't lose you sonny."
"will... you are only 19 years old. i am only 21. you are way too young to be a dad. and i am too young to be in love with a dad. but reality has a habbit of not caring what is suppose to happen. you are going to be a 19 year old dad... well you'll be 20 by the time the baby gets here... so i'll be a 22 year old... madly in love with a father figure. it's going to be really hard. and we're going to struggle. and most likely argue. and we'll strain a bit. but i think we can work through it. i love you enough to accept this and try, and i hope you love me enough to do the same,"
will entwined his fingers with sonny's, "i love you more then i ever could have imagined. and i'm not ready to be a dad. but i refuse to turn my back on my child." will vowed. leaning over and giving sonny a kiss.
"i'm proud of how you are handling this. i'm glad you aren't trying to run away from your problems." sonny said.
"..." will sighed.
"what's wrong?" sonny asked, scooting slightly closer to will.
"i want you to be a part of my child's life.... " will whispered closing his eyes, "i know you don't want kids now... but i love you... and i want to be with you, and i want this child... i want my child to know the love i have for you, i want my child to be as privileged as i am just by knowing you..."
"okay, then i'll be a part of his.. or hers life." sonny said. smiling at will.
will's heart fluttered. this was what his life was suppose to be like. granted, it most likely shouldn't have happened for a while now, but sonny was always meant to be his. it had to be... if not, then will was one lucky guy to have cheated life and receiving sonny.

(five hours later)
will got up from the computer desk in sonny's apartment and went to open the door. gabi was standing at the other side, looking almost pleased with herself, it was a complete turn around from the last time will had seen her.
"gabi... what are you doing here?" will asked, not sure if he should invite her in, or if he should step outside to talk to her.
gabi made the decision herself, by stepping right past will, and into sonny's apartment.
"nick came up with a solution, for our problem," gabi said, giving will an encouraging smile.
"you told nick?" will asked.
"not really... he kind of guessed i was pregnant... it's a long story, but anyway... he wants to get married," gabi said, smiling even bigger.
"he knows it's not his baby? does he know it's mine?"
"well, yeah, but, like i said, he came up with a solution,"
"right, but i don't understand that, because i wasn't under the impression there was a solution to be found, i didn't realize we needed one..."
"he wants to marry me, will," gabi said, raising her eyebrows as if will was suppose to know what that meant.
"okay, i heard that, congratulations, i guess, but what does this have to do with our baby?"
"he's willing to pretend it's his, no one had to know you were the father. he's wants to raise the baby as his own, as mine and his child," gabi said, smiling, as if this was what everyone would want.
"... but it's not his baby, gabi. the child is mine. i am the father, not nick," will said, feeling ... he didn't know exactly how to explain his feelings.
"yeah, but no one needs to know that. you don't want to be a dad. and nick does, he wants to be my husband," gabi said.
"i may not have been super excited to here you were pregnant, but i never said i didn't want to raise my child. you do realize you are asking me to give up MY baby, MY flesh and blood? gabi, i'm not going to do that!"
"but nick would be a great father, he would love this baby, and me, and we'll be married, it'll be perfect," gabi said.
"no it wont, because the baby isn't and never will be his. that is my child, gabi. and i'm not going to give him or her up. no, i'm not going to do that, i'm not giving nick my baby." will stood firm in his decision.
"will, how can you do this?! you don't even want to be a father, nick does, nick loves me, i love nick, this baby is meant to be nick's, not yours. we'll be married, it makes sense that the baby is ours... mine and nick's, not yours."
"i don't care what makes sense. the baby is mine, and i will be the father to my child, nick will not. he can be a step-dad, but he is not my child's father, i am, and i'm not going to give away my rights."
"you can't have the baby," gabi said, lifting her chin in such a way that she was almost looking down on will.
"excuse me?" will asked.
"you heard me," gabi said.
"yeah, he heard you, and so did i," sonny stepped out of the bathroom, where he had been taking a shower, "and if you think for one minute that you can keep will from his child, then you're highly ignorant."
"sonny this doesn't concern you," gabi said, turning her back to him.
"actually it does concern him," will said, walking over to sonny, "he knows about the pregnancy, obviously, and he supports my decision to remain in my child's life."
"i don't care what he supports, you can't be a part of this child's life, this child is going to be nick's!" gabi said, looking frustrated.
"my dad is a lawyer, a well-known, highly efficient, and extremely successful lawyer. and he'll be will's lawyer in this situation, and know this, if you choose to go to court and try to take will's right's away, you have to cause or reason to, other then you want to marry some ex-con/murderer. my dad can turn this case against you in the blink of an eye and it will be YOU who will lose right's to your child, and Will will receive full custody, not get the hell out of my home," sonny said.
as sonny closed the door behind gabi, he pulled out his cell phone.
"what are you doing," will asked.
"calling my dad, i meant what i said, you need to get full custody. and court hearing take time, so you need to do it sooner rather then later. after the child is born, and has spent time with the mother, it's harder to get full custody granted to the father. and i'm sorry will, but i don't want your baby around nick and gabi... i don't trust them, if they think they can just up and take your child... i don't trust them.... oh, hey dad, we need to talk, can you meet me at the coffee house?"
