'I'm sorry' Evelyn's chocolate eyes welled up with tears, letting them gently descend down her pallid cheeks, she looked so vulnerable, standing in front of the molten fire waiting aimlessly for my reply.
I couldn't bare seeing her so distraught for another minute, I held her in a tight embrace rubbing her silky blonde curls 'Evelyn you have nothing to be sorry for' I whispered into her ear.
'Your father is going to disown you Eli, and its all my fault' Evelyn sobbed.
'Evelyn, it takes two to make ababy, a baby that I love very much already' I bent down to the small swell between her hips, my lips gently brushed her skin, I could feel her smile.
'Oh Eli, I love you so much, and I'm scared Eli, I'm scared I've taken everything from you' Evelyn touched her stomach gently as I placed my hand over hers.
'Dont be so silly, I made the baby with you, I will not let my father contradict what I can and cannot do, I'm a grown man, a man who's going to have a real family of my own, that's all I've ever wanted Evelyn, and I dont care if I lose the money, because I have you, you and our baby. God Evelyn is makes me ache thinking about loosing you, your all I've ever wanted' I whispered, her full red lips pulled into a smile as I wiped away her tears with my finger.
'Thankyou Eli' she said as she nestled into my chest, I could feel the swell of her stomach gently rested against mine, she was so perfect, and she was all mine.
'Come on let's get you to bed, we will talk about all of this tomorrow. Your exhausted, you need your sleep Evelyn, our baby needs a happy mommy' I said gently through a grin, I softly lifted her into my arms and carried her to our bedroom.
I laid her gently on the cold linen sheets, she was gradually falling asleep as she clung to my warm neck. I removed her clothes as her honey curls tumbled to her waist she was so beautiful, she lay back with a heavy sigh 'I'll see you in the morning beautiful, I love you both so much' I planted a gentle kiss onto her velvet lips. Trying desperately not to disturb her I moved down to her bare sromach, I cupped her small but evident bump and firmly planted a kiss 'I love you and mummy so much my little baby' Evelyn stirred 'We love you too Eli, goodnight' and with that I shut the oak door, leaving the room in darkness.
