A-N: SORRY IT'S SHORT!!!
I arrived at café and went inside. It felt weird not having Emilia with me but I didn’t want her to be here just in case me and Simon went to the bad side. My insides felt like they were going to explode along with my head. How was I going to tell Simon what I have been feeling lately? I was just going to have to suck it up and tell him straight out or I will never tell him how I feel.
Fifteen minutes later I watched Simon walk through the door. He smiled as we walked over to me but I just couldn’t pull myself to smile back at him. I was starting to feel worried about telling him how I feel. But who wouldn’t in my situation. Simon sat down in front of me and I pushed him over the coffee I ordered.
“What’s wrong baby?” Simon said.
“Um, we need to talk about what’s going on Simon. Like between us.” I said.
“Okay, let’s talk then.” Simon leant back in his chair, “Tell me your thoughts.”
“Um, okay. You need to step up your father duties. I am sick of feeling like I am doing this on my own, I am sick and tired of you going out with the boys all the time. And most of all I am sick of feeling like I am nothing to you now a days.”
“What the hell are you talking bout Nina? You and Emilia are my all. My life.”
“I don’t feel like that.”
“So, what are you trying to say? That I am a fucking useless father? A useless boyfriend?”
“No, it’s not what I am fucking saying Simon.” I said through my teeth.
“Then what are you saying? You want to break up?”
“I don’t want to break up with you! God Simon. Are you even fucking listening to me!? I want you to stay home more often, let me go out with the girls for a couple hours and spend time with your daughter!”
“What? Is it so bad to actually spend time with our daughter? Or is it so bad to be a family, a father?”
“There is nothing bad with that, there is nothing bad with any of it. What I am trying to understand Nina is why you didn’t tell me this earlier. If you were feeling this way earlier why didn’t you tell me?”
“Because I didn’t know how to tell you.” I said as tears welled up.
“Aw, baby, please don’t cry.” Simon said as we moved his seat closer to mine, “Look, we will go out tonight, just you and me. Catch a movie, go to dinner. Then tomorrow I won’t go to work and we will go out as a family, we will go shopping or something. Okay?”
“Yep.” I said as I nodded.
Simon pulled me into his arms and ran his hand over my hair. I was glad that me and Simon spoke about what I was feeling and I was glad that he understood what I meant. And I was also glad that he was going to make an effort and he was going to make sure that he knew that I understood that he was going to try.
“I love you, you know that right?” Simon said.
“Of course I do. I love you too.” I smiled.
A YEAR LATER – EMILIA’S FIRST BRITHDAY
It was finally Emilia’s birthday and we were all sat out in the back yard. Over the last year everything had been going excellent. Simon and I rarely fought and we went out once every fort night to have our time. Emilia had started walking and Becca has ended up pregnant. When I found out I think I may have made everyone death. It was quite scary when they told me because they were baby sitting Emilia that night. Becca had rung me saying something had happened and then I went all crazy mother. Then when she had finally calmed me down she told me. I screamed and congratulated her. Mum and Bruce had been dating all this time and at the rate they were going they would be married by the end of next year. Simon and I had been dating for almost two years now and I loved him more and more each day. Crazy as it seems I think he might be Mr Right.
“Nina! Hurry up and get over here!” Mum called.
I shook my thoughts and hurried over to where everyone was standing. Simon had Emilia in his lap. Emilia was wearing a pink dress with little flowers all over it and white sandals. And her brown hair was up in to little piggy tails on the top of her head with two pink bows. I carried the cake to the table and lit the pink one candle that sat nicely on the cake. The cake had Happy 1st Birthday Emilia in pink frosting and white frosting cover the rest of the chocolate swirl cake. Everyone started singing happy birthday to her.
“Happy birthday to you!” We all cheered and Simon helped her blow out the candle and cut the cake.
I walked over and stood bent down beside Simon and Emilia and smiled as Mum took the photo. Mum had been snapping photos all day and if it wasn’t here snapping the photos it was Bruce.
I heard the back gate unlock and I turned around to see a girl with blonde hair and blue eyes walk in. I didn’t even know who she was.
“Leena, you finally made it!” Bruce called out and walked over to her.
She smiled brightly at him. She was wearing a white tank top with a denim vest over the top of the shirt and a pair of black short shorts and a pair of roman sandals on her feet. I didn’t have any idea who she was.
“Nina, this is my daughter, Leena.” Bruce said.
I am pretty sure my jaw just drop and hit the floor.
“Hi, um, I brought this for Emilia.” Leena smiled.
“Thanks.” I said as she handed me the present, “How old are you?”
“I’m almost eighteen.” Leena smiled.
“Cool.” I smiled back and walked over to the table with all the other present.
Bruce introduce Leena around to everyone and Wesley, the stud muffin he is, kept his eyes on her the whole time. I couldn’t help but laugh a little. I wondered what would go on between them because the way they are staring at each other it kind of looked like they were ready to pounce on each other and fuck each other brains out. But I guess we will see what happens.
A-N: Well, like one more chapter left and the epilogue. What do you think will happen between Mr. Stud Muffin Wesley and the new girl Leena? Was it sort of a surprise when you found out that Leena is Bruce’s daughter??
Anyways, one a really important note: I am thinking of moving to another account. I would use my Starships account but for some reason it isn’t letting me log in even though the email address and passed is correct. And I am thinking about this because I have so much crap on this account that it won’t let me delete even though I have tried to delete it a thousand and one times.
So, IF I DO MOVE this story WILL be finished and I will be taking it over to the new account with me along with Geek To DJ; A Typical Love Story; The Boys Games and my un-regular novel School Of Misfits. Don’t stress yet I am still thinking about this.
Alright, Bye NOW!
