I woke up to the sound of my phone ringing on the nightstand next to Taylor’s bed. I lifted my head off of the pillow and looked over at it. Taylor groaned a little bit moving from under me. I looked down at him expecting him to wake up but smiled as he rolled over onto his stomach and fell back asleep. I picked my phone up quickly answering it as I made my way out of the room into the kitchen.
Mom* Bailey I have been trying to call you all night. Where are you? I have been worried sick that you were hurt somewhere.
Me* Mom, I’m fine. Remember I texted you last night saying that I was staying over at Taylor’s apartment.
Mom* You did?
Me* Yeah I did. I sent it at about 8 o’clock saying I was staying here and would explain tomorrow.
Mom* Well I didn’t get it.
Me* Well I promise I sent it Mom.
Mom* Alright baby. I believe you. Are you going to be coming home soon?
Me* Uh I have to get back to you on that Mom. I have a couple of things to do here first.
Mom* Bailey is everything alright?
Me* Yeah Mom don’t worry. I will tell later.
Mom* Do you promise Bailey? I don’t like you keeping secrets from me.
Me* I know Mom. But you have to trust me. I love you.
Mom* I love you too sweetheart.
Me* Alright Mom I’ll see you later. I’ll call you when I’m coming home.
Mom* Alright I have to call your father to tell him your alright.
Mom* Don’t start Bailey he is just on duty no worries. He knew you were alright. It was just me that worried.
Me* Alright tell him I love him too.
Mom* I will sweetheart.
I hung up the phone and looked around the kitchen. It was a normal modern kitchen with everything you would need in it. I heard a quiet cry making me turn around in my take of looking at the kitchen.I made my way into Finn’s room. I walked over to his crib and looked over the bars at him. He had a happy look on his face as he lay on his stomach in his little pajamas. He must have turned over in his sleep since I put him on his back last night. He looked up at me and smiled as I smiled at him. “Hey Buddy.” He turned himself over so he was on his back looking at me again. “Are you hungry?” He looked up at me with a wanting look on his face. “You are aren’t you baby?” I said picking him up as he took my t-shirt that I borrowed from Taylor into his little fists. “I bet you are hungry little man. Let’s go make you a nice warm bottle.” He laid his head on my shoulder as I made my way back into the kitchen to see if I could find him a bottle.I sat him in his height chair and went looking into the bags from yesterday and put the formula into the bottle and put it into the microwave to warm it up for him. I waited into the microwave beeped and I took the bottle out. I made sure it was just right before I put the nipple into Finn’s open mouth as he started to suckle right away. “You are hungry.” I mumbled to myself as he put his hands up as he gulped it down. “You know what let me make you a doctor appointment so we can make sure you are nice and healthy.” He looked up at me as he just suckled away. I still held the bottle as I pulled my cell phone out of my pocket and dialing the hospital to talk to Uncle Rodger.
Uncle Rodger* Hello Dr. Fisher here.
Me* Hey Uncle Rodger.
Uncle Rodger* Hey Kiddo. What’s up?
Me* I was just wondering if you knew any pediatricians that are good.
Uncle Rodger* Yeah I know a couple. Why do you need one?
Me* It’s a long story…..
Uncle Rodger* Alright. I will text you some numbers so you can call.
Me* Thanks Uncle Rodger.
Uncle Rodger* Your welcome Bailey. You know you can always call if you need anything.
Me* I know and that’s why I love you.
Uncle Rodger* Love you too Kid. I’ll text you the names and numbers.
Me* Thanks. Bye.
Uncle Rodger* Bye Kid.
I hung up the phone and looked back at Finn as he finished off his bottle. He looked at me with a smile as he giggled with happiness. He looked happy to have had a bottle, even so early in the morning. But then again, kids don’t care they love the mornings. I picked him out of the height chair and put a burp rag over my shoulder before laying Finn there and patting his back. I heard him burp before I cradled him to my body before taking him back into his room. I watched as he started to get tired as he has probably barley eating while with his mother. I slipped a pacifier into his mouth which he took happily as he quickly fell asleep. I put him back into his crib before walking away from the crib turning the lights out. I walked into the kitchen and started breakfast for Taylor and I while I got a text message from Uncle Rodger with the names of the pediatricians he knows…..
Taylor walked into the kitchen and looked at me as I put the food onto the table. “Hey Sleepyhead.” I smiled at him as he stood in the doorway in only his boxers leaning on his crutches.
“Hey Blondie. Did you make me any?” I smiled at him.
“Sit down Hollywood. This is for you I already ate.”
“When? What time is it?”
“It’s about 10:30 now. I got up at 8 o’clock with Finn. I made him a bottle and when he was finished he went right back to sleep.
“You could have woke me up so you weren’t alone.” He said looking up from the plate of scrambled eggs with cheese and bacon.
“Don’t worry. You needed your sleep and I was working on getting Finn a doctor appointment. Then I was just doing a little bit of work so it was nothing.”
“Did you get him the appointment?”
“Yeah I called my Uncle and he gave me some names. I got an appointment in an hour and a half.”
“So at like 12?” I nodded.
“Exactly.” He looked at me as I picked up my sketch book and continued what I was doing. I gently moved my pencil over the light lines making them darker as I stared at the tattoo I was drawing.
“Everything alright Bails?” I looked up at him.
“Yeah sorry, just thinking.” I said picking up his empty plate before walking over and washing before I put it into the dishwasher. I stared at the water as it went down the drain before I felt arms wrap around my waist.
“A penny for your thoughts.” Taylor whispered into my ear.I turned in his arms and looked up at him.
“You shouldn’t be standing on your leg.” I whispered laying my head on his chest.
“You’re enjoying it though aren’t you?” He kissed my head.
“Yeah.” I mumbled hugging him tightly breathing in the smell of him.
“So are you going to tell me what’s bugging you baby?” He pressed his lips to my head.
“Everything is just coughing up with me I guess. You have a son.”He looked down at me.
“I have a son.” He said clearing his throat.
“A handsome, loveable, cute, Taylor-like, son. Who I am falling in love with.” I sighed. Taylor looked at me.
“Taylor-like? Is that even a word?” I nodded.
“It is in my vocabulary.” I smiled closing my eyes leaning into him.
“You are telling me you love my son?” I opened one eye to look at him. “The son I didn’t tell you about?”
“Yeah I’m telling you I am falling in love with him.” I nodded closing my eye.
“Good, because I love you so much.” He leaned down to kiss me as I leaned up to press my lips to his.
“I love you too Taylor, My Hollywood.” He smiled at me as I moved out of his arms.
“You are my Blondie.” He smiled putting his crutches under his arms. I closed my sketch book and slipped it into my bag before looking at Taylor.
“I have to go to work to drop off some things. You can come and then we go to the doctor from there.” He nodded.
“Sure I don’t mind. You want me to get Finn?” I shook my head.
“I kind of want to get him if that’s alright. You can come though.” I giggled walking away from him to go into Finn’s room. Taylor shook his head before smiling and crutching into the room after me. I walked over to the crib and rubbed his stomach to wake him up. “Wakey, wakey my little baby.” He opened his eyes and looked up at me before lifting his arms at me. I picked him up and cuddled him close to me as Taylor walked over and put his chin on my shoulder.
“Look at him. He is just…I don’t even know what to say what he is.” He whispered looking at me. I nodded looking at Finn as he reached up to touch his father’s face.
“I better get him ready so we aren’t late.” I said looking at Taylor. He nodded.
“I’ll go get ready and get you a t-shirt to wear. You get my little man ready.” He smiled at Finn. Finn smiled back before I moved to his changing table to change him into a new everything. When we finally got done we had about 40 minutes to get to the doctor so we were going to go to the doctor first, to the tattoo shop after, then to my house to talk to Mom and Dad. Taylor was in a simple black t-shirt and shorts that went over his knees but hung loose so it fit with his cast. I borrowed a USMC t-shirt from him and tied a knot into the side so it wasn’t too big on me since I was small and Taylor was, well, big. Finn was dressed in the outfit I bought him yesterday. He looked so cute by the time everything was ready to go.Now it was time to see if Finn was okay after all his mother did to him……
A/N: I was thinking of changing the name of this book to "My Hollywood" from the "Don't Forget To Remember Me". Got any thoughts? Should I? Should I not? Thanks for reading even though it is taking me FOREVER to update. I hope to fix that soon. Thanks again. <3 Patty
