I walk in with lunch for Lauryn when I see her crying on Janet's shoulder. Not knowing what the fuck is going on, I demand answers. "What happened? Are you alright?"
She looks up at me with red tear stained eyes and I know that there is something really wrong. Motioning for Janet to get out, I wait for her to move and then shut the door. Standing next to Lauryn's desk, I feel clueless when she won't tell me what is going on. Instead, she just starts crying again.
Shaking my head, I bend down and pick her up in my arms, letting her head fall on my shoulder. Sitting down, I hold her for several minutes quietly, trying to figure out what has happened. Eventually she stops crying and looks me dead in the eyes, but doesn't say anything.
I gaze into those sad and lonely eyes, not knowing what to do for a while until she finally tells me. "Jaiden visited me today and you two have a daughter together.
I can't believe he just left me sitting here crying. Of course, I knew I should have never said anything to him, because the minute I did the look on his face told me exactly what I thought it would. The child means more than I ever would and now that he has one, our relationship will never be the same. So much for a fairy tale romance and ending. Now there are complications and I know very well that this will never end well for me. Knowing this, I should back out now while I still have an ounce of dignity. Maybe, just maybe I can still keep my job and my parents' house if I keep my head down and pretend I'm not here. If he doesn't ask for the ring back, I can sell it to pay for the back payments on the mortgage. Thinking back, I should have realized that this would never be able to work out. He's a handsome billionaire CEO and I'm me, simply put. Thing is, I wouldn't have changed any of this for the world.<
"What the fuck?" I slam Jake against the wall and yell at him, his face covered in guilt and fear. "Did I just find you with your hand up my fiance's skirt, taking advantage of her?" I stare at him about an inch from his face and breath heavily on him. Realizing that Lauryn and Janet had left, I couldn't stop from taking it out on Jake. Something was going on and I was pretty sure it had to do with him. I know that earlier was quite a shock, but we are still the same aren't we? Why would the whole Jaiden thing make Lauryn upset? We are still getting married and I still love her. That hasn't changed, just the fact that I might have a daughter and I would never let anything tear us apart. She is mine and now Jake has touched my private possession intimately. I doubt she was willing, considering she looked smashed. Looking down at him, I let go realizing that he can't breathe. Jake s
After a horrible night, I wake up the next morning and borrow a couple of Janet's things to wear. I am lucky she still has clothes from before she gained a lot of weight or they would have never fit me. Looking in the mirror, I have to admit that they look pretty good for something borrowed."Janet, I want to thank you so much. You are awesome and I am just glad that it is all over. Now I can just keep my head down at work and try to stay out of trouble. Hopefully, Jake leaves me alone too."She pats my back with a hand and then hugs me. "I sure hope so too. Yesterday, was enough drama for a lifetime. Unfortunately, you may have to see him at work. If he tries anything, let me know and I will kick him in the balls."I laugh and she winks at me. Shutting the door to her apartment, we hail a taxi and get to work just in time. Mr. Lawrence watches me go by his of
I can't believe what I see when Julian almost knocks me out with the door. Lauryn of all people, in his arms. They look too chummy to be just friends and then I notice that she is wasted. I can't pretend that I dont see it and most importantly, I don't want to. When she falls and hits her head, I pick her up and take her back to my apartment. Waiting for her to wake up, I call Dr. Peters and have him check her out in case she has a concussion. "It's always a good thing to get checked out when someone is unconscious. Who is she?" He smiles and checks under her eyelids. "Thank you for coming over right away Dr. Peters. You are a life saver. She is my fiance and she was a little drunk, so she fell." I lie and watch everything he does, trying to help out anyway possible. Lauryn has been asleep for three hours. While she has been asleep, she is developing a nice goose egg o
Saturday finally rolls around after staying at Darren's house for the rest of the week. Waking up slowly next to him, I still don't know what to make of things. All I do know, is that he would go to work and leave me here. When he did get home eventually, he told me that he had been in contact with Jaiden and he arranged a meeting with her and Miah today. Lewis called last night and confirmed that the child is indeed his, so that puts a damper on things. Now Jaiden can officially wrap her little fingers around his neck and never let go. Where this leaves me, I don't even pretend to know. Darren claims that we are still getting married and going to have our own family, but the way things are going, I don't know. Now I'm wondering if he still wants to marry me, just so he can get custody of Miah. When he's around, all he talks about is her and I don't want to be in a relationship made of lies and no lo
It's lunchtime and I am on the way to Lauryn's house to figure out why she ran out on me. I woke up this morning and I felt empty, because she wasn't in my arms and when I got up she wasn't anywhere to be found. I looked all over the penthouse and all of her things had vanished.So here I am, driving the two hours to her house to find out exactly what happened. It could be that she has given up on us. I know that the last several days, I haven't been paying attention to her and I should have been. Being too preoccupied with trying to get guardianship of my daughter, I neglected Lauryn.Maybe that was it, or the fact that she couldn't deal with the sudden addition. I know it tends to tear apart relationships when a child is thrown into the mix like this. Either way, I have to get her back. Without her I am nothing. She is my other half and my heart aches for her.I know I shouldn't be driving here now, because
Darren carries me inside and takes me right to the bedroom, kissing me passionately the whole way. With my lips on fire, he undresses me piece by piece, starting with my jeans. When we get in the bedroom, he places me on my feet and has me stand right in front of him.His hands slide down my torso while kissing every inch of exposed flesh. When he reaches the zipper, he releases it and pulls my jeans down. I hold his shoulders as he slips my legs out, one by one, then he casts them to the side, kneeling in front of me.I watch as he kisses the rest of my skin and when he reaches my clit, he flicks out his tongue and licks it. His hands cup my butt cheeks and pull me up on his shoulders, so he can feast on my pussy. Face covered in my juices, his tongue darts in and out of me as he bites my clit.Grabbing a fist full of hair, I throw my head back in ecstacy and hold him in place, encouraging him to continue so I can
Driving back to the city, we decide how to proceed with everything. Letting Lauryn do the talking, I sit back and drive while she calls Jaiden and informs her that we will be meeting her a bit later than initially decided. Of course, she isn't happy, but eventually agrees. Feeling confident that everything will work out, I look over at Lauryn and smile.Her face is lit up by the sun and she looks absolutely radiant. How lucky am I to have a woman who is willing to take in another child that isn't her own and love her? I thought for sure I was going to have to let Miah go. She glances at me and returns a beautiful Lauryn smile. For a few minutes we sit quietly driving, then she asks me a question. "Why would you have given up your child for me? I thought she was your everything, what happened?" Mulling it over, I answer eventually, "Well, I realized that I wasn't willing to lose you over this. Yo
