Sixteen-year-old Lori Binghamton leaned her head against her locker as the morning sickness washed over her in waves. It was time for her afternoon Math class, and she hadn’t been able to down the greenish-brownish-grayish mass of vegetation they had served in the cafeteria at lunch.
She knew she was pregnant, and she knew her father would have the baby aborted to save face, but oh how she dreaded telling him. She knew Mom would go along with what her father decided as she always had done.
She sat in class, staring through the teacher. She was struck through with shame as she remembered that Thursday night when Jimmy McGowan had begged her, his hands everywhere, and she had given in and let him do it in the back of his dad’s Cadillac.
