I got home and images of last night kept appearing in my brain. God! I'm so careless. I can't believe it happened. I can't face Marc and everyone tonight. I quickly booked a flight to Washington D.C. I needed Zara. Before leaving, I texted Stella.
Me: Stella, I'm afraid I can't attend tonight. Personal reasons. I'm really sorry.
I checked in my luggage and waited. Several hours later, I arrived in Washington D.C.. Zara was standing behind the line, holding a huge paper with my name on it.
"Zara!" I shouted.
"Kate! I can't believe you're here! Oh my god!!" Zara said while hugging me.
"Come on, let's go. I wanna tour you around. You've got only f
Marc's POVChristmas has come and gone, and she has given me a picture frame as a gift. I'm not sure why, but she didn't write anything else on the card than 'Merry Christmas!' '.Kate has been avoiding me ever since she returned home. I'm completely at a loss for what to do. I really want to tell her the truth, but she always leaves or excuses herself when I'm in close proximity to her. This is extremely frustrating. For God's sake, it's been a month already!Kate's POVIt's hard to believe that it's already been a month. Last night, I told Stella everything that had happened. I told her about my feelings for Marc and how I came to be in love with him. I also informed her that I was at a loss for what to do. I've been feeling a little under the weather the past two days. It's most likely because of the food I ate. That was something I had already experienced as a child.I've only just g
Kate's POVI haven't had a chance to speak with Marc yet. It's been two days since I discovered that I'm expecting a child. I'm still feeling a little overwhelmed. I kept myself occupied last night by reading all of the brochures that Stella had given me. I came to the realization that I couldn't be stressed. I made the decision to speak with Marc about the events that had occurred. I suppose it's difficult to have uncompleted business. I'm currently sitting at my desk, contemplating what I'll say to him when the time comes. I couldn't tell him I was expecting a child, especially with Margo in the room with me."Kate." Speaking of…"Yes?""Can we talk?" I looked up and saw Marc."That is not the case here. I'm thinking about it after work. I have to be ba
Kate's POVGod my head hurts. What the hell is happening? Oh wait. Troy. I opened my eyes to see Troy staring at me. I was in a blue room. I remembered this room. I used to hang out with Troy here. We're in his vacation house."What the hell?!?" I snapped."Good morning, love.""Why the hell am I here?""Because....you're gonna be my wife.""Are you crazy? I'm not gonna be your wife.""You will. Because tomorrow, we'll be leaving for Canada.""I will never ever be your wife, you understand?" I answered.<
Kate's POVIt's been two weeks since I got hospitalized. My bruises are still healing but I feel better. I'm glad that Troy's gone. Now, baby blip here's gonna be safe.Marc and I? Well he asked me to be his girlfriend the moment I came home. So, I said yes. He's overprotective. My due date's still faraway yet he takes care of me like I'm a freaking baby. He insisted me to move in with him but I told him not to rush things. He practically forced me since I'm the mother of his child. He said that he wanted to keep an eye on me. Such an ass.My things were brought to his house a while ago. He hired movers to help out. I only have my necessities in my bag.I wanted to go back to work today but Marc insisted that I rest for the day. I had no choice since both the baby
One month later....Kate's POVI told my brother that I'm engaged and he's happy to know that I'm happy. Zara's already excited to see me in a white dress. Everybody's fussing about our wedding. The press went wild. They've been following us and asking us questions about the wedding date or how Marc proposed. Stella knew Marc was gonna propose. I guess everybody in the office found out too.Marc and I are going to the doctor today. My baby bump is already visible. We're finally gonna find out the gender. I'm nervous. I hope the baby's healthy after everything that has happened.I kept fidgeting."Baby, it's gonna be alright. Nothing's wrong with our baby. We've got good genes." I smiled at Marc. He's really sup
Kate's POVI got discharged from the hospital two weeks later. Marc insisted that I stay at home for a week. We practically argued the whole ride home. After a while, I gave up. I guess being stabbed and losing a baby made me lose energy."Hey...you okay?" I heard Marc ask before touching my hand."Yeah..I just didn't expect this would happen to us. Everything's going so well.""I know. Don't worry. We caught the man. Detective Hale will be asking you some questions tomorrow. We'll find out who the real culprit is." He said, reassuring me. I smiled and hugged him. We got out of the car and went inside. I went to the guest room and gasped. The room's empty. I went inside, opened my closet, and gasped. "Mommy! Look! Daddy got me a toy car!" Xavier ran to me, holding his toy. Marc came back from his business trip to Canada. "Wanna open it with mommy?" He shook his head and ran to his playroom. I smiled and turned to Marc. "You're spoiling him, you know." Marc shrugged and gave me a kiss on the cheek. "I've got you something." He took out a small box. He opened it and there's a necklace with a maple leaf pendant. "You shouldn't have. I have a lot of necklaces, Marc." "Shh. Come on, let me put it on." I turned around for him to clasp it around my neck. I felt him encircle his arms around my waist. Latest chapter
