"Where are we going Mama?" Charlie asked me while I put on his socks.

With that man you call the heck of a Father.

"To the amusement park, with Seth." I ruffled his hair after I put on his shoes.

"The person from yesterday?!" He exclaimed with joy. I smiled and stood up "Yeah, He's coming soon."

I got ready myself and as soon as I just fixed my hair, Seth was at the door knocking.

"DADDY!!!" Charlie squealed and ran to him. Seth kneeled down and opened his arms and hugged him when Charlie landed on him. "Hey buddy, are you all set?"

"Yeah I am!" Charlie beamed at me. I smiled back shyly and got my bag "Lets go?" I almost walked past them to the door but Seth stood in front of me.

"No, you're not." He eyed me up and down. I stepped back and grimaced "What now?"

"You're not wearing that" He pointed at the majority of my chest and legs "You got too much going o-"

"Not in front of Charlie!" I hissed at him and folded my arms in front of my chest. I was glad that Charlie was packing his toys in his backpack. I was wearing a v-neck and denim shorts that were midlength of my thighs, this was the only thing that made me look my age and at least younger. "You have any other clothes?" He asked, still eyeing me.

I looked down nervously "Most of my clothes are the ones I use to wear at work, but you hate them. These are the only clothes that are suitable for this weather and they are the only one's I have" I mumbled under my breath. He sighed and drew his hand through his thick disheveled hair "You're so stubborn"

I think I just saw him pout a little bit, I pinched my finger to stop myself to look stupid.

"How am I stubborn?" I asked him, a little bit coldly. I wish I could get rid of this attitude of mine, but it's just not that easy. He looked to his right and covered his mouth. He gruffly said under his breath so I can hear

"I don't want you to be looked at"

We looked at each other and I smiled wryly, giggling "I think the stubborn one is you"

He looked at me funny and I saw his ears go a bit red "You really make me feel old." He gave me a seductive smile and whispered "But that's exciti-"

"Charlie lets go!" I called him as I went to carry him. I walked past Seth and gave him a glare and hissed "Not here!"

He whispered back "Then some other time"

I hope that my hand wasn't sweating more than the other one. If it did, Charlie would surely point it out to Seth.

Seth was holding my right hand and Charlie was holding my left. The difference was, was that Charlie's hand was held into mine, but Seth's hand was entwined with my fingers, having a grasp.

"Why are you holding my hand!?" I gave Seth a glare, whispering under my breath.

"Charlie needs a Father" He replied gently. He looked forward and we kept walking. I gazed at him for a bit, and I felt my cheeks get hot. Until he added

"And to let every man that looks at you will get it"

I pushed him away and laughed a little "No way you!"

He grasped my hand again swiftly and brought me closer to his side "Don't think I'm playing with you Erin. I don't want to hurt you."

I stepped back a little, I felt the couple behind us get awkward. I whispered shyly back to him "Later...Now isn't the right time for this..."

He held my hand tighter and nodded "Whenever you're ready"

Charlie and Seth started to talk but I kept quiet, looking forward.

I'll never be ready

~

It was a long day, and we were riding in Seth's car back home. Charlie was sleeping in the back, and there was silence between us.

I heard him "Now?"

I felt a little hot and I answered quietly "I think..."

We then didn't speak for a while and I opened my mouth. Nothing came out until he spoke

"Do you hate me?" I heard regret in his voice "After I did that to you back then?"

I froze a bit on the question. I don't really hate Seth, but I thought I should since he did many things that made me what I am now. Either way, I wanted to hold him, he looked miserable "Do you mean the slap?" I asked quietly "Or trusting her?"

He didn't answer "No... Not for that" He parked in front of the house, but he didn't unlock the doors "It's more than that."

He turned and leaned in a bit. There was a serious tension between us at the moment, but he looked sincere "I..." He started "...can't do it here." He suddenly grunted harshly and unlocked the doors.

I looked at him shyly when he turned to face me. He said quietly "I'm sorry...Not now...." He looked at Charlie, who was drowsily waking up. Seth opened his door and carried Charlie.

We were standing in front of my apartment and I looked at him, asking him gently "Won't you stay?"

I think I suprized myself of how that came out. He looked miserable again "I want to...But I don't think I can control myself."

I blushed instantly and he smirked "It's hard to explain."

"I think I can figure" I flustered to open the door.

After he tucked Charlie into bed and closed the door, he turned to me and asked again

"Now..?"

I looked at him timidly

"Whenever you're ready."
