Roman was already awake by the time Lily sat up in bed. She was tired and exhausted. They'd had the most silent sex last night and Lily could only think of what next she had to do."I want to go home now." She stated, not turning to look at him. She feared that meeting his eyes would force her to change her mind but she really needed the space to think.Roman nodded and got to his feet, "I'll wait for you outside, you can clean up and get ready in-""No, I want to leave now." She shook her head at him."Alright." His voice was low and he sounded just as tired as she was. She wondered if he'd had any sleep at all. She didn't want to care but she hoped that he got enough rest.Roman helped her to the passenger seat and got on his side.Lily sighed, bracing herself for another moment of silence. It was going to hurt her ears but she couldn't bring herself
Lily shook her face out of his grip. "Roman I'm sorry but I can't. I just can't keep doing this. You lied to me not once, not twice, how do you expect me to believe whatever you have to say?" She attempted to stand on her feet but failed due to the excruciating pain she felt in her foot.Roman crouched so he could lift her up but she wouldn't let him. He shook his head at her, knowing he wasn't leaving her here to drown in pain."You might not want to talk to me but you are hurt and you need my help. I'm not going to leave you on your own injured, there's no point fighting it." With that, he picked her up and led her back to the shed. Cassie was not waiting inside by the time they got there and Lily sighed in relief. She couldn't deal with both their presence but it was better Roman than Cassie.
Kim stopped in front of a bar to order something to drink. She pulled her phone out and groaned at the low percentage before shoving it back into her bag. Adrian had let her go with the escort of a driver and had made up his mind that he never wanted to have anything to do with her ever again.The woman working behind the counter was heavily pregnant, she looked as though she could be on her seventh or eight month and Kim eyed her cautiously."No, I don't drink." The brunette woman snorted and rolled her eyes, "everyone seems to assume that for some reason just because I work here, I'm trying to make ends meet for my baby." She bent to retrieve a pack from the drawer and handed it over to Kim, "and to make sure girls aren't pregnant before they drink, here you go."Kim took
RoMan didn't give an explanation. Instead, he came up to her side and pulled her away from Kim. He held her shoulder for a minute and stared at her blankly."Roman, what's wrong?" Lily stood still, waiting for him to say something. Instead, he went to the closet, stuffed random pieces of their clothing into a mini travel bag. He held it in his weak arm and pulled a plain t-shirt over his head.He held her hand and took her out of the room while she stared still in utter confusion. She met Kim's confused gaze before heading down the flight of stairs.Fred was still waiting in the living room when they got there. He had a frown plastered on his face, "you can't be serious, where are you two fucking headed?"He trailed after them as Roman did not bulge or let go of Lily.Lily wanted to complain that he was holding her too tight but she was still so confused and was barely able to fi
Roman stood up after her immediately and trailed behind her as she made her way to go upstairs, "where are you going?"There was no response.Lily got upstairs and noticed that Adrian and kim had taken their issues to their bedroom. As complicated as the whole matter was, she truly wished they managed to resolve things."Stop following me!" She snapped when Roman came into the room with her. She hadn't been disgusted by someone's attitude in such a long time."This is my room, I can go wherever I want." He reminded her, sitting by the edge of the bed. Lily didn't argue with him, instead, she focused on her closet and began to pack a few clothes."Where are you going?" She could hear the mockery in his voice and when she didn't respond, he softened his tone, "I'm sorry about earlier okay? I didn't mean it like that. I know you did nothing with him, i just think you don't stay safe
Lily had completely forgotten that she actually had a brother in law, come to think of it, in laws at all. She wasn't expecting Adrian to be back from his trip so soon, she thought he would be gone all year, maybe it was something millionaires did.She blinked at the scene in front of her. He'd caught Kim and her 'brother'.She was so glad that she hadn't been the one to break the news to them. Turning to look at Roman, she could tell he had put two and two together and had figured out what was going on as well."Adrian I swear, it's not what it looks like." Kim began to wail while James ran down the flight of stairs without bothering to put his clothes on. It was a good idea because goodness knew what Adrian would do to him if he even stayed a bit longer.Adrian turned to look at Roman with cold, dead eyes. "Is dad home?"Roman didn't look phased by what was going on. "Nah." He shrugged.
Not sure she had heard him right, Lily stood to her feet and blinked at Jerry whose smile was now wearing off into a look of genuine confusion."Are you okay?" He asked her, noticing how the colour had been washed off her face."What do you mean by I am pregnant?" She asked him, hoping he would just wave it off as some silly joke but then that look of confusion on his face widened and he shook his head."I'm surprised you didn't know, I thought to take it since I was doing a general checkup." He thought it wasn't a very good idea now.Lily didn't wanted to wait to hear what else he had to say. She just wanted to leave and go back to the comfort of the room she had shared with Roman and see the pregnancy results for herself."I'm sorry Jerry but I have to go." She announced, standing to her feet."You don't look very okay." He pointed out and she forced the most fake smile
Kim pulled away from James and hid herself under a blanket. "What on earth are you doing here?!" She looked genuinely frightened. In her panicked state, she turned to look at James, "you said you locked the door!""What the hell is going on here?" Lily narrowed her eyes, unable to take it in. Her phone beeped in her hand. She raised the phone to her face, it was a text from Jerry.'I think we should fix a date when we can physically talk and get to know each other better.' the text read.She locked her phone, deciding this wasn't the best time to keep a conversation.Kim sprung to her feet, yanked Lily into the room by pulling her wrist and earning a small shriek from Lily. Kim locked the door behind them and double checked before holding Lily at arm's length."I need you to promise me that nothing you saw just now will get to anybody." Kim began to say, desperation filling her v
He stared at her blankly for a moment and when realisation dawned on him, a bright smile appeared on his face."My God, Lily." He spread his arms and she stood to her feet to receive his embrace in a warm hug while Roman's eyed widened simultaneously."I haven't seen you in forever." She commented, pulling away, still holding hands with him, the only thing Roman could focus on.She was lying, he was one of her old classmates she used to stalk on Weber and she'd known he was hot guy but he had never posted a picture of his medical life."Me neither, wow, here you are and you're still as beautiful as ever." He smiled."Thank you." She blushed. He'd been her high school crush and they weren't really close but they had been good friends at the very least and although they dated for a week in middle school, their communication wasn't deep."If you are done with th
