I HAD a one-night stand with my cousin at my farewell party before going to work abroad, now she tells me she is pregnant and keeping the baby. I am 26. I got the chance to spend two years abroad with the engineering company I work for and I really enjoy living and working in Dubai.’
Every three months I come home to the UK for a week and this was my first time back. I had a great time.
On the last night my family threw a party.
We all had a lot to drink and the party went on until the early hours. Some of my mates crashed out in the lounge and some in the spare bedroom.
My cousin was staying over and I had given her my room but I decided to get some kip on my bed too (it’s a double) as I wanted a good night’s sleep before my flight the next day.
She went to the bathroom to undress and came back completely naked and climbed in next to me. I felt really awkward but she soon changed the mood and started asking me if I was OK.
She said she was going to miss me very much, then leaned over and kissed me on the lips. One thing led to another and we had sex. It was good even though we were both drunk.
I left early in the morning before she woke up because I felt awkward about what happened. I did think about her in the following days but now I have received this email I am totally shocked.
She says she has just done a pregnancy test and it is positive and she is happy about it. She is only 19, doesn’t have a proper job yet and still lives at home.
How on earth I am going to explain this to family and friends?
I feel like such an idiot.
