I am Beki. 19 years old and I'm British. I had some family problems in 2007, so in 2008 I moved to Bahrain with my mother, step father and now 6 year old brother. I had a year of partying, meeting new friends and trying to decide what I should do with my life. Then came April 2009. The bars in Bahrain are just full of US Navy, usually very lurring and drunk, so I tend to ignore them. One night a friend of mine ended up wondering to a table to speak to two young navy men, and I tried to ignore them. An hour later I was sat having a great conversation with one of them whilst the other played tongue tennis with my friend. An hour after that I too was playing tongue tennis haha. Sadly, the guy I got close with had to leave after 5 days, but we emailed, and he was a great friend, and he explained his best friend was being stationed in Bahrain for a year. I had recently just turned 17, but I have always been mature for my age. I thought best to ignore the navy guys again and spent May 2008 avoiding a bar which I knew this new guy would be. But the last weekend of May, my friends dragged me to the bar, and an hour into the night I had somebody tap my shoulder and smile and ask if I was Beki. I could have said no, but this guy was gorgeous so I said yes, and realised instantly, he was the guy I had been avoiding. We then ditched my friends and went and stood alone talking for 2-3 hours! We swapped numbers and I thought that would be that. He then had to leave for curfew and 2 minutes after leaving (he was staying in the hotel ABOVE the bar!!) he text me a simple "sweetdreams gorgeous" I'm usually super shy and run away from men. The next 3 days were spent constantly texting and calling, then he asked me to meet him again, and I suprised myself when I agreed. I took my brother who was 4 at the time with me, and we went to Mcdonalds for lunch (classy huh!) and I spent the entire time translating what my brother was saying as our British Accents were too much for this US guy! This was a Wednesday. He explained it was his friends leaving party at the bar we met at that night, so I agreed to meet him there. That night, after hours of talking, we discreetly went for a kiss in the middle of the dance floor, all of a sudden around 50 plus people started cheering, whistleing and clapping. We loved our first kiss! I then met him again outside the navy ba
The natural disasters hit and his orders were canceled. We got sucked up into the pregnancy. I was going to fly to England at 28 weeks along and wait with family then move back to Bahrain with my mother, then we would both move to America in 2012.
Somebody Nathan works with explained we could get married without getting in trouble so we took all advice. May 24th, we stood in a town hall in Cyprus, and said our vows. We did it with no family and spent a week in the local areas around Cyprus. I am now 34 weeks and 4 days pregnant, and our little boy is getting ready to make a show. Nathan is choosing new orders and we have never been happier!
We also have a pug puppy!!
I may have missed little bits out, but my pregnancy brain makes my mind go blank often!!
