Janet told me all about Darren resigning. I just wish I had heard it from him first. What happened? I know that he was on the front page of the newspaper and somehow Jaiden set it up, but why did he have to leave?
Struggling through the rest of the day, I wait till it's time to go home. Looking at the clock, I see that it's 2 minutes to 5 and I start packing up my things. I hear a knock at the door and thinking it's Darren, rush over to it. Unfortunately, it's Jake with a big shitty ass grin on his face.
"So, do you need a ride home? I assume you heard the news." Staring at me, he sits down in the chair by my desk. Patting my chair and motioning for me to sit down, I walk over to it and take a seat.
Sighing, I listen as he tells me all about it. "Lauryn, I can't believe he did this to you. He has made your relationship a scandal, even though it's not true. How could he drag you into th
On Thursday morning, we wake up as usual with two exceptions. Instead of driving to work, Lauryn does and I watch Miah. Now the only time we need the babysitter is when we want to be alone, at least until I find another corporate position. I hear the phone ring, taking it out of my pocket I see that it's from Mr. Reynolds. "It's all taken care of. You are officially the sole parents of Miah and you will never hear from Jaiden again. Apparently they found her body hanging from the jail cell. I was told that she supposedly hung herself with her bed sheet." Standing up and pacing, I ask, "Did you file a lawsuit with the Chronicle?" "Yes and as soon as I did, their lawyers offered up a settlement. Will you take a formal apology on the front page of the newspaper and twenty million dollars for compensation? I told them I would have to talk it over with you, but figured the sum was too low considering you lost a multi
"Hey Baby, where's my tux? The rehearsal is in an hour? I have looked all over and can't find it."Smiling, I answer. "Don't you remember? It's in the back of the car already, along with my wedding gown and Miah's dress.It's Saturday, the morning of the wedding and everything has fallen in place. Ben and Kathy talked to the Minister and made sure that it is all absolutely perfect. Samantha and Chris are in town, staying at the hotel. They are going to meet us at the rehearsal and Darren's mom Elizabeth and his sister Shana are already in town too, staying next door to Samantha and Chris.Yes, I feel bad for them, because I know damn well that Samantha and Chris made a lot of noise all night. She really wanted to have a double wedding with us, but Darren was firm on the fact that he wanted all eyes on me only today. Excited, I'm practically jumping out of my skin.I am sure glad that we did
"Daddy, daddy, look!" We both turn to look at what Daniel and Daniella are yelling about. Miah sitting on the sand turns around and watches as the twins run around with a crab. It has been three years and the kids have gotten so big. The twins are 2 and Miah is 5. Being such a big sister, she always watches out for them and helps with everything. Samantha and Chris got married three months after we did and have a beautiful little girl Christina. Ironically, she looks just like Darren. Janet and Casper ended up getting engaged, but Janet got bored with him soon after and moved on. Theresa quit when she found out Jake was screwing the secretary on the fourth floor, shortly after Darren came back to work. Then one night almost a year ago, Jake was driving in a storm, when he took a corner too fast in his Maserati and ended up slamming into a semi going 150. He had to have a close
