There are three different types of love. There is the first love; meantime love , and everlasting love. The first love is the kind of love that is one for the books . The meantime love is experimental , what the hell was I thinking this cannot be love type of love. Then , then there is the everlasting love. If you by any chance find yourself back in the arms of your first love after going through hell , then you should consider yourself lucky. You can sometimes get stuck in meantime love until you wake up ; just pray that it’s not too late and that your heart is strong enough to find the everlasting love that ignites an eternal flame in your heart.
I honestly wasn’t expecting to end up sleeping with Maxwell Jeremiah Blackwell. The week I spent back home flew by and I left without saying goodbye to Max because he was busy talking to Billie and Blake. Megan Max’s mother didn’t want me to leave; but I had to go. I told her to tell Max that I love him but I had to rush back to the city because of a work emergency. After saying my goodbyes to the family excluding Dex and Sandra .I took one of the cars in the garage at the house and drove myself back home. I had a house near work so I parked it there instead of my apartment which was in the city. It’s my go to place after a night out or time out .
When I switched on my phone Maria had sent me a message suggesting we go out to celebrate her new promotion on Friday. Monday to Thursday I worked on the media plan for the club Max played for. Call it fate but if the schedule was anything to go by I was going to be traveling around the country and living out of a suitcase. The international trips too were short but hectic. I wondered how in the hell anyone could stay in a relationship where ; your better half is all over the country and spends five out of twelve months with you. I’d honestly go crazy… and become insecure too, leading to trust issues and an epic ending to a partnership that I call a relationship .
Some women have the stamina and they are committed, some even travel with their men . I also had to organize a tournament in my home town for unearthing new talent at my old highs-school… I was unfortunately given October 31st to November 3 off for Dex and Sandra’s wedding. Luckily Maria wanted to go clubbing in my hometown and besides I had a party to attend Thursday evening and I took Friday off . I could work from the lake house and set up my office there before I hit the road with the team come January. My assistant had also set up a meeting with a guy that would be shadowing me for the December tournament on Saturday morning .
On Wednesday evening I arrived back at the family home. Dexter and Sandra were nowhere to be seen. When I asked my grandfather he told me that; they were up at the Country Club Resort and they were having their wedding there instead of the family property. He also told me that Max has been coming over to help him with some of the paper work he needed to submit for the scholarship program he was setting up. He also asked me; if I was falling back in love with Maxwell?
I couldn’t lie to him and I told him the truth. As soon as I called it a day at midday on Thursday morning; I went to the local bakery to go pick up my cake and cupcakes. I wasn’t getting married so ;I could drop the cupcakes at the orphanage and the cake I would figure out what to do with it later. My phone rang indicating an incoming call from an unknown number before I could drive out;
“hey It’s MJ are you back home?”
My heart stopped for a second and did a somersault. His voice still did things to me that I couldn’t explain.
“Hey. Yes I am.”
“Are you free?”
“Between the Bill and Blake’s birthday party; Club night on Friday with Mary and a meeting with someone I am supposed to be working with on Saturday afternoon, oh and Mass on Sunday, I am not sure. “
“ is there anything that can swing in my favor?”
“ I am not sure.”
“ You look sexy in that lady bug printed dress and sandals.”
“I didn’t tell you what I was wearing.”
“You also left without saying goodbye. Was I really that bad in bed?”
I flashed back to the last week of September and I don’t know what it is about sex when you are older and feeling less guilty.
“I didn’t say anything .”
“ Your car is big enough and I know the perfect place .”
“No. Have you slept with anyone since we were together?”
“No. I told you I wanted to prove to you that I am committed to us.”
“Is history. “
“ It’s your brother and sister’s birthday party today.”
“ I know and the bakery says that; your cousin is making them do the unbelievable so, I don’t have any cake .”
“ Well I just happen to have cake . I wanted to go drop the cupcakes at the orphanage. “
“ I am also struggling with regards to cash flow too.”
I went inside my S.U.V. and slid into the cockpit .
“ We are in the middle of a heat wave. I heard what Betty did.”
“ I paid off everything and sold most of my things. I have an apartment in the city and I was given a job offer. I am coming over to your car.”
“ Where is yours?”
“The twins have it. I gave it to them for their birthday.”
I heard a knock on my car window making me jump. It was MJ. As soon as he got in he leaned over to kiss me; and I kissed him back
“ I missed you .”
Max kissed my forehead and smiled.
“ I missed you too.”
“I am not an expert at writing, and mailing I traded my care to the twins for your numbers.”
“ knowing you, you have another one ,sneaky .”
He chuckled and buckled up.
“I am already burning up and I we don’t have enough time you have club night tomorrow.”
I started driving and Max started fiddling with my music system.
“ What are you doing Black ?”
“Eleanor we aren’t going to listen to your music for the next thirty minuets . “
“My car. My music.”
“ I am a guest so I sort of, kind of win .”
“ No .”
“ What’s the password?”
“ I am not telling you.”
Maxwell was back to being his annoying self and above all I was falling back in love with him hard.
“ Fine then I will take a lucky guess .”
Max typed in the password and loaded his playlist. My car was quiet for a couple of seconds until; he started singing a song we both loved , in fact it was one of the sound tracks to our love story. Before I knew it we were singing together at the top of our lungs ;
“ When you are with me I am free … I’m careless …I believe above all the others we’ll fly this brings tears to my eyes my sacrifice.”
He had loaded Creed , James Morrison , Florence and the machine and Linkinpark onto my system . I hadn’t sung that creed song in over fifteen years . My Sacrifice was one of the songs we listened to when he going through the most. We were both dealing with a lot but grew throw it . He had daddy issues and to a point he opened up about the physical abuse. He had ran away from his house one rainy evening and I was awake when he knocked looking for me. After helping him dry up ;he came upstairs to my room and I yanked out my sleeping bag, and a couple of pillows. We spent the whole night talking and listening to music .
It was a Friday night when his father came home drunk and her mother was visiting home . When I asked him if he ate anything , he shook his head . We both snuck into the kitchen and made toasted cheese sandwiches. I didn’t like anything to do with pork; because it resulted in my tonsils being inflamed , but on that night I ate the ham and cheese sandwich and the next day I woke up under the weather. It felt like I had streps; which I suffered a lot from after removing my tonsils , but ten times worse . I ended in hospital leading to the removal of my tonsils and Maxwell came to visit me and stay when he was given permission . I think he was the one who opened , my work document because he was the only one who knew I loved butterflies.
We pulled up by the orphanage , and it was awfully quiet; when I checked the time it was homework session. I knew that because I used to come and help the kids out . As soon as I entered the study hall little Raphael came running to me to give me a hug , as soon as Max walked in everyone got up and wanted to meet him. The level of control he had was awe inspiring . He even had time to take a picture with everyone except for Raphael. He was four years old and the youngest of the group . He wouldn’t let go of me . When I put him down and convinced him to take a picture with Max , he nodded and pulled my hand too. indicating he wanted me in the picture too. Sister Catherine took the picture and max took a selfie . As soon as I was done with the treat I had to say; goodbye . Raphael made me promise to come back with MJ and Max promised .
Feeling a bit fatigued I gave MJ the car keys and he was more than happy to drive .
When we made it to his house which was just a couple of kilometers away from my family home , we took out the cake and made it in time for the party. The caterers I had hired were there too. Feeling tired after the festivities which ended later than expected , I called it a day, and Maxwell who was still buzzing drove me home tucked me in after running a bath for me and slept next to me . Something about being in Maxwell’s arms felt secure.

MaxI am in love. I am in love again with someone I shouldn't have let go of. Listening to someone who always thought Ellie was not worthy of anything good; resulted in me having my heart being broken, by someone who never really loved me and is now pregnant with a guy who got me suspended pending a hearing. I was having coffee with a couple of friends and one of them spotted Ellie .She had left without saying goodbye to me . I understood why because the twins filled me in on a lot of things. I also cannot believe Betty knew about my mother being in hospital and cutting them off when they called and asked her for me. My mother had had an accident and judging by the extent of the injury and surgery, both the twins and her couldn't afford it. When they called Ellie she called a family doctor and she foot the bill for everything including a nurse to take care of my mother while the twins were at school.My mother refused to give me any documentation ;
EllieI am afraid of opening up. I am afraid of opening up because I have been through enough heartache; heartbreak , hurt and pain. Dexter wasn't good for me and I am thankful that he cheated on me with my cousin. They deserve each other. I am in love with MJ and if the circumstances were different I wouldn't be scared. I am scared because he makes me feel something I haven't felt since he broke up with me . To be honest I never really got over him. There was no one who came close to making me feel alive. He is the antidote to a part of me that had been dying. I wasn't really in love with Dexter because I couldn't love him the way I loved and still love Maxwell. I didn't want to leave but I had to. I had club night with Maria and he had practically begged me not to go but he did that knowing that there wasn't any other way to get me to stay. I told him that I was going to be with Julius , Sam ,and Maria. He had to go to the Sports center to go check on a couple
MaxwellI am in love with Ellie and I am pretty sure she is in love with me. I have to come clean with her . Snooping around her notebook was wrong. I had told Julius who told me when he came through to the soccer club's office that; what I did was wrong and she couldn't lie to Ellie. I tried to call her and I even left texts, but she didn't respond. I knew she would be mad at me and I couldn't just show up at the club and spoil her night. What I did was sneaky. I knew she would be back before midnight so I decided to get her a sorry pack. Basically I filled a basket with all of her favorite things and wrote an apology note. I took it with me to the lake house and waited for her there. I really needed to buy a new house close to home .I waited for Ellie and I must have dosed off because I was woken up by the sound of my phone vibrating. I got off the couch and reached for it on the kitchen counter , and answered it."Blackwell.
MaxwellAbraham is the closest thing I have to a grandfather figure. He is Eleanor's grandfather and he has always been on my side. Even when I broke Ellie's heart he wasn't mean but he was disappointed. When I found out why Ellie was with Jules and how I misunderstood the situation, I felt like crap afterwards. Whatever brought us back together must have been what knew we were meant to be. I am thankful that I have her back ; but I can't lose her. Abe was talking to Daniel. The conversation looked intense and he seemed calm but worried. I sat down because; it didn't help to be all panicky and angst. I just need her to be okay. I love her with my whole heart.When Daniel went back to work ; Abe came and sat next to me he leaned over to give me a hug and I hugged him back. I looked at him and spoke."What's going on gramps?"" Ellie was hurt pretty badly , but she will recover. Betty...""My ex?""Yes , bumped her
EllieI don't like being disorientated, or waking up and not knowing what the hell is going on. When my eyes shot wide open I was in pain . My head hurt , so badly, and my arm was on fire too . Before waking up I dreamt of nothing . I just woke up and saw a hand holding my hand; a guy sleeping , and the time on the wall indicating that it was Nine in the morning. I took a deep breath and squeezed the hand that was holding mine and to my surprise it was ; Maxwell . He looked at me and I looked at him and smiled he kissed my cheek and left to go get the doctor. I took another deep breath and took stock of the extent of my injuries. I had a cast on my left hand and a my head felt like it did when Dexter pushed me down the stairs a while back when we were dating. I closed my eyes and I flashed back to the night he showed his demon. When my grandfather asked me what really happened and how I hid it from everyone.I started rel
MaxThis has been the longest week and emotionally I know where I stand with my one and only Ellie. I've been staying with her at the lake house on their property . It was already the weekend of the wedding. She was right about Sandra not cancelling the wedding. She dropped the charges against Dexter and Sandra somehow got Abe to agree .Sandra's father was also going to be walking her down the aisle. Ellie had agreed to go to the wedding. She had been quiet all week and she wasn't herself to be honest. I knew when we came back from the hospital that she had gone into a dark place . We did work and she knew her stuff. By the end of the week we had already had an event planned and a contingency plan . This meant that we had the weekend and the week off because the tournament was starting next week Friday. Betty had been calling me non-stop . She was already with Garry and I had already sold off what we owned together .
EllieThis was just too good to be true. Maxwell hasn't changed. I knew he had a reputation ; but he never, not once cheated on me or kissed some one else , when we were together. If this was to get back at me for what happened years ago then he had succeeded.I always knew that he had a vengeance streak. I was innocent in all that happened. My cousin who is married by now to my ex fiancé ,who cheated on me and then got her pregnant. Oh and to top it all off he told me that I wasn't parent material.I didn't want to tell Max what happened with his father before his mother did . Billie and Blake had also already been through hell. If Dan and Salvatore didn't come in when they did I would've been in the inbetween wondering how the fudge sticks did I ended up there. I was going to check up on the twins because I had come home for the weekend . Bill and Blake needed laptops; but I got t
MaxIt's my birthday . Happy birthday to me but it's not a happy one. I shouldn't have reacted the way I did when Ellie said I should give her time. I just don't have the patience to give someone time when I know I can help remedy whatever they are going through. I was peeved and Mia came at the wrong time ... Just as the alcohol was kicking in and I really couldn't counter any attack.Even being straddled and kissed in public and my girlfriend seeing it . I usually have self-control ; I would never , and I mean ever cheat on Ellie or sleep with someone else just to get back at her. She broke up with me. She gave me the same look she gave me when I broke her heart and ran away with Betty. I don't recall what happened last night; but all I know is that I owe Eleanor an apology and I have some begging to do.My birthday fell on a Sunday and I didn't have anything planned. I knew I wanted to spend it with the
