Chapter 28 – Baby
“Do you know when you can come home?” asked Mike the next day “tomorrow” I said “with the baby?” asked Mike “yes” I said smiling “can’t wait, but why can’t you come home today?” asked Mike “the doctors just want to make sure I’m okay and that the baby is okay, don’t worry baby” I said reassuring Mike “you sure?” asked Mike “yes” I said “are you sure the name isn’t too long?” I asked “no, it’s perfect” said Mike. I smiled at him

“she’s so beautiful” said Mr Harmer as he held the baby and smiled at me “well done sweetheart, congratulations to both of you” “thank you” I said smiling “what’s her name again?” asked Mr Harmer “we haven’t properly named her yet dad” I said “okay, what are you going to call her?” asked Mr Harmer. I cleared my throat and sat up in my hospital bed “Paris Gabriella Lorelai Solis” I said “wow” said Mr Harmer “wow? Is it too long?” I asked worried “no, no sweetheart. It’s a lovely name” said Mr Harmer “are you sure it isn’t too long?” I asked still worrying “yes” said Max stepping in. I smiled at my dad and my brother

When my dad and Max got home, they both went into the kitchen where they found Mike going through photos “what are you doing?” asked Max “trying to find out who Alyssa is” said Max “how’s T?” “she’s fine, the baby is beautiful, congratulations” said Max “Thanks Max mate” said Mike “your welcome Mike mate” said Max “I know who Alyssa is” said Mr Harmer “we know you do, so tell us” said Max “okay” said Mr Harmer. Max and Mike waited “what?” asked Mike “wouldn’t it be best if we just leave it” said Mr Harmer “are you insane?!” asked Mr Harmer “I’m just being sensible” said Mr Harmer “but Tess wants to find Alyssa” said Mike “please dad, not just for us but for Tess as well” begged Max “okay, okay but don’t tell your mum. I’m in enough trouble for telling you, her existent” said Mr Harmer, giving into Max. Mike and Max laughed at this but my dad joined in and smiled

“so Alyssa has a daughter called Stacey Brennan, she’s 28 years old” he stopped “what, Stacey is 28 years old, OMG” said Max “Max, don’t be stupid. Your dad meant that Alyssa is 28 years old not Stacey” said Mike sighing “yes, Alyssa is 28 years old not Stacey, thank you Mike” said Mr Harmer “she lives in Yeovil, she’s divorced, she’s adopted” he stopped again “well obviously” said Max. Mike rolled his eyes “stop interrupting your dad. It’s rude. What’s the matter with you” said Mike. After that, Max stopped being rude “doesn’t know you and Tessa are her brother and sister, she’s got three adopted sisters called Lauren, India and Kristen and 2 adopted brothers called Elliot and Parker. Her adopted parents are called Andrey and” “Andrey, what kind of a name is” Max stopped when he saw the look on dad’s and Mike’s face and didn’t finished “and Callum. She doesn’t know me or your mother, doesn’t know anything about her past, doesn’t know why she’s adopted. She loves reading like Tess. She has a job as a beauty therapist. Her ex-husband is called Blake Brennan and her daughter is 4 years old” Mr Harmer finished “does she like writing stories?” asked Mike “no I don’t think so. She has a thing for motor bikes and that’s how she met Blake” said Mr Harmer “I think Tess is the only one with the creative side” “can I tell this all to Tess when I pick her up?” asked Mike “yeah of course, is she coming home today?” asked Mr Harmer “yes” said Mike. Everyone smiled

“are you ready to come home?” asked Mike “you bet I am” I said as Mike helped me pack “everyone is so excited” said Mike “aww” I said smiling “I’m glad you’re coming home, I’ve missed you so much. Max has been a” he couldn’t finished “Nightmare?” I finished. Mike nodded “what’s he done this time?” I asked sighing. Clearly fed up of Max’s behaviour “he kept on being rude and interrupting your dad when he was telling us about Alyssa” said Mike. I rolled my eyes “don’t worry, I told him off and after that, he stopped interrupted your dad” said Mike quickly seeing my face. I smiled at Mike and hugged him and looked up at him because he was taller than me “thank you” I said “so what’s going on?!” asked Mike “what do you mean?” I asked confused “what did the doctors say?” asked Mike. I let go of Mike, cleared my throat and looked at my husband “Mike, this is one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to say but our baby, well she has neurofibromatosis type 1” I said. I looked at my husband, he didn’t say anything “Mike, honey are you okay?” I asked sounding worried. Mike stood up and walked over to the baby tank to where our daughter was sound asleep in lots of blankets. I went over to him “I’m still getting used to the idea myself” I said and I put my head on Mike’s shoulder and he kissed my head “how can she? I mean, you don’t” said Mike “I don’t know baby. It was a huge surprise to me too” I said “what is neurofibromatosis exactly?” asked Mike “it’s too do with the nervous system and learning disabilities and the curvature of the spine and learning difficulties” I said. Mike just stood there looking down through the tank to see Paris “I know, it’s huge” I said “but she’s perfect no matter what” said Mike finally putting his hand to join mine “agreed babe” I said and we finished packing
