Thank you DrThunder you get a candy. And now I've gone back and fixed some things in the first post, maybe that'll explain Amy's line better. As far as the thing with Drew goes, yes she's just a made up character. I usually put her in my stories but I decided to make this as realistic as I could so she's just sitting in the sidelines. I appreciate your enthusiasum. And now not only do you get a candy, you get the next part! Wee!
Shortly after Zoidberg had a breakdown and was forcefully put locked in the janitor's closet, the Professor gathered the remaining crew members in the meeting room. Leela had been extremely quiet, lost in her thoughts and not been paying attention to anything that had happened.
Hermes: And das why we gotta cut down on the booze fo a while.
Bender slammed his palms on the desk looking angrily.
Bender: You can't do that! If you want to cut down on taxes than discontinue the Lobster Channel for Zoidberg! And sell everything he's touched! Just don't take my booze away! *Sobs*
Hermes shook his head sighing. He was all for Bender's idea, but he knew that it wouldn't happen.
Hermes: Now, any news?
Crew minus Bender: No.
Hermes: Any one's nuts out of order?
Leela jumped up looking nervous.
Leela: Sleep together no! Why would we do that?
Everyone stared at her for a moment. They were positive she had flipped. Leela moaned in embarrassment as she slumped back in her seat.
Leela: I was up last night...
Farnsworth flew his hands at her.
Farnsworth: Shut up Leela. It's time for your delievery today. You'll be delievering twelve packages of *suddenly whispering* tampons and condoms *talks normal* to Vorgish 42, it's their Marti Gras now.
At the sound of tampons, Leela jumped again.
Leela: Tampons! What! I had one on that night I swear!
She shook her arms as she spook. Amy pulled attention away from her.
Amy: Why did you whisper when you said tampons and condoms?
Farnsworth: I didn't want to make God cry for a second time today.
Bender was puffing on a cigar. He pulled it from his mouth and pointed it at Farnsworth.
Bender: Since when do you care?
Farnsworth: Since my pharmacy got my Hemroid pills switched with someone's "Ye O Flanders's Many Faith" pills.
Fry's face was blank and serious. Apparently, the pill had only worked on him.
Fry (unnatural voice): I think it is time to load the cargo and begin our mission.
Farnsworth: Splendid idea, moron.
Fry: Thank you Professor. You can reward yourself by not paying me my pay check this week.
Farnsworth: Even more splendid my brain washed, monkey.
In a few moments, Bender was pushing the dolly loaded with six crates of condoms and tampons and another six on top, to the loading bin of the ship. He pushed the "up" button on the switch and rose himself and the dolly onboard. Bender made his way to the front of the ship where Leela focused her attention to starting the ship up and leaving Earth. The ship's engine began to roar and began to rise the ship, in a few moments the ship was out of Planet Express leaving the stratosphere.
Leela's foot that wasn't on the gas petal was twitching like a dog's when you scratch it's stomach. Her hands were sweaty and her mind was racing. Leela had discovered something that morning that scared her. She slept fine last night but it wouldn't last. Fry who was sitting behind her, even though he was under a 24-hour mind control, still had his own thoughts and forced the control to make him go talk to her. None the less, when he place his hand on her shoulder, she screamed.
Leela: Oh, I'm sorry F-Fr-. *Normal pitch* Fr...*high pitch* ry.
She was so disturbed with what she had found out that she couldn't even stutter Fry's name. Fry's voice still sound even toned and not like his own.
Fry: I am sorry to have scared you. But the Professor's mind control has made me less oblivious and I noticed that you were in a hesitant state.
Leela looked at Fry with sympathy.
Leela: Thank you but I'm fine. I-I uh didn't have coffee this morning and I just got off to a bad start.
Fry nodded his head.
Fry: The mind control says that you are telling a lie.
Leela was surprised that she was caught in her lie.
Fry: But the idiot Fry part of the brain is naive and willing to believe your un-turthful story.
Leela looked at Fry sternly, but confused.
Leela: Uh thanks.
Fry: It is my pleasure to talk to the woman in which I would like to one day win over...*pause*...that was not suppose to be said.
Leela patted Fry's hand two times.
Leela: I'll pretend I didn't hear that.
Fry nodded and turned down to the bridge. Leela looked over at Amy.
Leela: How long is that mind control thing going to last?
Leela: Eh...this is not the time for him to be under mind control.
Amy put her magazine down in her lap.
Amy: What do you mean?
Leela sighed, she pressed the button that turned the auto piolet on.
Leela: Do you absolutely promise not to tell anyone
Leela: OK. Well remember a month ago at Bender's birthday party where we all got drunk? *Amy shakes her head, yes* Well I thought that I had been talking to this police officer who came to the party. And I guess that there was a police officer there but that's not who I was messing around with. I woke up the next morning in the Professor's labratory with a hangover thinking I had slept with that officer. We were both on the Professor's desk with a blanket over us. I had his jacket on, and then once I was able to squint my eye and see colors, I realized that they jacket I had was a red one. *Amy leaned forward a little raising her eyebrow.* I saw that the guy I slept with was only...only...
Before she finsihed, Amy interrupted. Amy gasped and clamped her hands over her mouth.
Amy: You did it with Fry!? You did it with Fry dressed like a police officer!?
Leela shushed her and shook her hands.
Leela: Shut up! I don't want him to hear me!
Amy: Well does Fry know you did it?
Leela: No, I got out of there somehow without him waking up. But that's not all...
Amy (disbelieving): There can't be more.
Leela shook her head.
Leela: Well when we started to have sex, he said he had a condom on, and well I was completely hammered and I was too stupid to check. I-I took a certain
test this morning and uh...
Amy had her hand pressed against her forehead.
Amy: Leela, are you...expecting?
Leela cautiously shook her head yes. Amy jumped from her seat slightly swearing in Chinese.
Amy: Leela! You can't be pregnant with Fry's kid! What were you thinking!?
Leela: Hey! You were also completely hammered and half the time you weren't even with Kif!
Amy: I wasn't?
Leela shook her head no.
Leela: Please don't pressure me. I feel bad and freaked out without you. I mean I've only taken one test. After the delievry I'll get some more tests and see if it's right. Not all of those tests are right.
Amy: I guess you're right. But until then, this is water under the bridge. I still can't believe this. I mean if Fry did knock you up than that's sad. I mean if I got pregnant, I'd at least know who the father was.
Leela stared at her angrily.
I'm cutting through the delievry part. Strictly because it all goes well. Bender stocks up on a lot of booze and Fry is still the perfect delievry boy. Through the whole mission, Leela and Amy don't mention anything that they talked about earlier. It isn't until 10 that night that they return to New New York. By then, the mind control begins to rub off on Fry. His voice changes from the mind control talking to his actual voice. When the Planet Express Ship lands back in the building, they find that Hermes and Zoidberg have already gone home. And Farnsworth left a virtual message to lock up as they left. As Leela was grabbing her jacket from her locker, Amy walked up behind her.
Amy: You're going to the Wal Greenmart right now, right?
Leela: Yes. And please stop talking loudly. I just don't want to make it clear until I know.
Amy: Alright. But you have to call me once you've tested yourself again. I don't care what time it is either.
Leela: Ok. Night.
Amy walked back up the stairs leaving Leela alone. Shortly after Amy's departure, Leela shut her locker door and made for the exit. Leela was the last one to leave so she had to set the security system as she left. Leela's walk to the Wal Greenmart seemed like the longest one in her life. Leela tried to hide herself when she walked down the maternity section. Leela had a basket in her hand and quickly swept ten pregnacy tests in the basket. Her heart stopped when she heard someone call her.
Fry: Hey Leela.
Leela stared directly at the shelf that she had swept all the items she had gotten. The damn irony. Dammit! Though, Leela managed to put on a fake smiled and whiped herself around to face the man who had possibly gotten her pregnant.
Leela: Hey Fry! What's up?
She playfully punched his shoulder. When she drew her arm back she thought, "What the fuck did I do that for?". Fry gave her the same expression.
Leela: So-uh that pill finally wore off.
Fry: Yeah but it gave me a head ache afterwards so I came to get so asprin. Uh not to be personal, but what are you doing in this asile?
Leela faked her laugh.
Leela: You caught me. Well Amy asked me to pick some of these up for her. She thinks she's pregnant.
Fry: Really? Wow. That's great for her. But why do you have ten?
Leela: Two are for me. You know if I ever have sex in the next couple weeks.
That line made herself disturbed.
Fry: Don't worry. I'm sure one day there'll be a guy who thinks that you're pretty, smart, and caring, and he'll love you for that.
Leela smiled for real.
Leela: Thanks. Do-do you want me to pay for you asprin? I mean if that's all you're buying.
Fry: Well I was going to get a six-pack of Slurm.
Leela: I don't mind. Let me pay for it.
Fry: Eh ok. Thanks.
Leela's Mind: I owe you, after I scare the shit out of you.
Fry and Leela walked over to one of the opened check out stands talking about what it was like having your mind controlled. They loaded their items on the conveyer belt.
Fry: And then my voice kept changing tone.
Leela: I thought that was weird.
Fry: Me too.
The over weight check out lady was surprised when she saw all the pregnacy tests that Leela was buying.
Lady: What are you expecting 10 kids?
Leela: They're for a friend. Not me.
Lady: Whatever makes you convinced.
Leela sighed and felt butteryflies (or maybe her baby) squirming around in her stomach. Leela paid for all the items and gave Fry his six-pack of Slurm and asprin. They walked out of the store.
Fry: Thanks again for paying.
Leela: No problem. I'll see you tomorrow.
Fry: Yeah and tell me if Amy's...you know.
Leela: Oh don't worry I will.
Fry waved to Leela who walked the opposite direction he did. When Leela got home, she immediately head to the bathroom, though she said hello to Nibbler. In the next two hours, Leela had used all ten of the tests. She called up Amy, who was sleeping but once she saw that it was Leela, she woke up.
Leela said nothing but moved the phone to face all the tests that were alined one-by-one. Amy's jaw dropped. All ten tests, were blue...
Amy: Oh my God.
Leela was sitting on the toilet with her head in her hands.
Leela: Amy, you've said that five times.
Amy: That's because I don't believe it.
Leela: Well how do you think I feel?
Amy: I know, you're pregnant.
Leela: Pregnancy's not an emotion!
Amy: Easy, easy. Don't get pregnant at me.
Leela: I have to go to the doctor's now. To make sure Fry is the father.
Amy: Well when was the last time you had sex?
Leela: At the party. But I think I might have done other things with other men too.
Amy: Well I know you stuck your tongue down a couple people's throats.
Leela stuck her tongue out in disgust.
Amy: Imagine what Fry's gonna say.
Leela: He won't say, just faint.
Amy shrugged, assuming she was right.
Leela: Well, I'm going to have Fry's baby. And Fry's going to have a cow.
The next morning Leela woke up with a startle. She had a hard time sleeping that night. She dreamt about herself walking down a hallway with several doors on each side. (Like the hallways you see in Scooby-Doo). Some doors lead to room that all her ex-boyfriends were in. They were all giving her a flirty look as though she was still dating them or something. Leela in her blue and white collared robe shut that door. She opened the next one. It was full of baby cribs and babies that either had one eye or two and either had Fry's red hair or her own purple hair. Leela shut that door. The next one was her holding a plaque and a medal that both read "Turanga Leela, First One-Eyed Woman Star Ship Captain." She looked proud to have that medal. Leela wanted that in her life, but she still shut that door. She finally came to one towards the end, that made her smile. It was Fry, holding a little two-eyed purple haired baby girl, with a red headed-two eyed 8 year old standing next to his father. Leela leaned on that door enjoying the view of what looked like her future now. Leela walked in the room over to them. She smiled at her two children and looked at Fry lovingly. She leaned in and gave him a kiss. Which made her snap out of her dream and wake up. Leela was still in a daze after that last part. She looked at Nibbler who was still sleeping by her feet.
Leela: I think that was my life. Wow.
Leela threw the covers back and got out of bed. She prepared herself to go to the doctor. As Leela was finishing up, she looked at the phone. She reached for it and started to dial Fry and Bender's phone number. But she stopped and hit the cancel button.
Leela: I should wait. He might not even be the father.
She put the phone back on the receiver and left the room. Leela left a bowl of water and food for Nibbler. She told him good-bye and headed out the door. In twenty minutes, Leela had made it to the doctor's. Her heart was pounding forcefully every second she got closer to heading into her office. Dr. Madison was her doctors name. She was a short brown hair woman who was about ten years older than Leela. When Leela was called into her officer, Leela's stomach was lodged up her throat.
Dr. Madison: So you're here to find out whose the father of your baby?
Leela: Uh yeah.
Dr. Madison: Ok. Well we'll have you do a test and have the results in a few hours.
Leela gave the doctor the Planet Express number. She did the test and was out of there in the hour. Leela made herself very clear that if anyone was calling it wouldn't be for a mission. Fry could have figured out why Leela was being strict with the phone but he was oblivious. Later that day, Bender, Fry, and Leela were on the couch watching TV. Zoidberg strolled happily in the room with a scuzzy buck of Buffalo Wings that had been thrown out.
Zoidberg: Friends! Look at what I found in the dumpster. Oh what a day. I will have eaten twice this week. Wanna smell the aroma of my lunch?
He stuck the bucket under Bender, Fry, and Leela's noses. All of them gagged and were disgusted, but Leela couldn't handle the smell and covered her mouth as she ran to the bathroom to vomit.
Bender: See Zoidy, you do make people throw up.
Fry stood up.
Fry: I'm gonna see if Leela's ok.
Fry walked around the coffee table and headed out the door. But in a moment he came back in.
Bender: Bathroom's to the left.
He left again. A second later, the phone rang. Bender picked it up.
Bender: If this is for Planet Express press one. If this is the Robot Mafia looking for Bender than he is not here at the moment because he's in hiding. If this is for a reason that doesn't follow the others, how may I help you?
Dr. Madison: Is Leela there?
Bender: She's vomiting at the moment.
Dr. Madison: Ok. Well could you tell her that Mr. Fry is the father and that she needs to come in for a sonogram in five weeks?
Bender leaned forward shocked to hear this.
Dr. Madison: Thank you.
She hung up. Bender began to laugh menacingly. He was interrupted by Zoidberg who was copying him. Just then Leela walked back in, Amy was behind her.
Leela: Where did Fry go?
Bender: He got lost looking for the bathroom again but more importantly, he got you knocked up.
Leela jumped in surprise.
Leela: How do you know that!?
Bender: You're doc just called.
Leela: So Fry is-
Amy gave a shocked look.
Leela: Oh my God. Bender you can't tell Fry.
Bender: Why not? He's my best friend I can't lie to him.
Amy: You've lied to him thousands of times.
Bender: But this is something not worth lying about.
Leela sighed. Fry walked back in.
Fry: What were you going to lie to me about?
Leela waved her hand in front of Bender to stop him from talking.
Leela: Uh Fry, I really need to tell you something.
Fry: Ok what?
Leela: You know how I said that those pregnancy tests were for Amy?
Leela: Well they weren't. The-the truth is uh-uh...damn I can't do it. Take it away Bender.
Bender (dully but quickly): Fry you knocked her up and she lied to you.
Fry stuck his finger in his ear trying to clean it out.
Fry: Bender, did you just say that-
Fry: And I got Leela-
Leela was biting her finger.
Leela: Fry, you don't know that this is hard on me too.
Amy: Fry are you ok?
Fry's pupils were very small but his eyes were opened wide. He stood there frozen for a moment, he was so still that he didn't look like he was breathing.
Fry began to breathe deeply.
Fry: When-when did it happen!?
Leela: At-at Bender's birthday party. You were in the police uniform.
Fry: And that was you in my jacket!?
Fry tried to take a step to the couch to lie down, but he didn't make it. He fell forward fainting. Leela grabbed his arm. But he was too heavy and pulled her down with him. Bender looked at them.
Bender: Hey is that the position you were in when it happened?
To put Leela's reaction in clearly, let me do this,
. The three of them pulled Fry onto the couch as he was still unconscious. Shortly after, the Professor called a meeting.
Farnsworth: Good news everyone, Leela is pregnant with Fry's baby.
Zoidberg: I'm so happy for you.
Leela: Cram it.
Hermes: So how did Fry take the news?
Bender: You can ask him when he becomes conscious again.
Hermes: I was da same way when Labarbera told me she was havin Dwight.
Leela was silent.
Leela: I think I'll just wake him up now.
She stood up and walked back over to the door that led to the PE lounge. When she opened it, she faced Fry.
Fry: We need to talk.
Bender began to open his mouth. But Amy grabbed the Professor's electric stick and shot it at Bender. He was electricuted for a few minutes. In the longue, Leela and Fry stood awkawardly for a moment. Fry spoke up.
Fry: Eh-I-I'm sorry for flipping out like that.
Leela: I think that's natual for any parent. I mean why do you think I was late for work yesterday?
Leela: Uh Fry, I've only been pregnant for a month and if you don't think you're ready than I can always do this by myself or get an abortion-
Fry: No! No way! *Grabs Leela's hands* Listen, I'm the one who got you pregnant and therefore I should take half the responsibilty. Unless...you don't want to.
Leela: Well, it's not really against my nature to kill a living thing. And I've always wanted a family, not like the life I had.
Fry: I don't know that I've wanted kids but I've always wanted a dog since I came to the future.
Leela: We could get the baby a dog.
Leela: So it's agreed. We're going to do this.
Leela: You're going to be the dad, and I'm the mom?
Fry: According to Bender, looks like it.
They smiled at each other.
Leela: I'm so happy Fry!
She jumped up in Fry's arms and hugged him. She leaned her head close to his.
Leela: I promise you won't regret this.
Fry smiled at her. The more she thought of it, the more it made Leela happy that she was going to be a mother.
