The next morning, I woke up with a smallfrown as the bright rays of sunlight hit my face. I covered myself with the duvet immediately and reached out for Tristan but he was missing from the bed. I woke up in an instant, covering my body as much as I could. Memories of last night came rushing back to my head and I smiled widely. I've never been happier and being with him just felt right.If this is what I would be signing up for, I wanted to be with him forever. I had already made up my mind. I was ready to leave Phoenix with Abby for him. That is, if and if we were going to talk about the future. I noticed my phone on top of the bedside table and picked it up. It was 7 am and I let out a soft sigh.Where was he?"Morning, sunshine." I heard his deep husky voice and turned to my side to find him standing outside the bathroom in just a towel that was hanging dangerously low on his hips, his hair was all wet fr
Tristan's POV:I kept tapping my feet furiously waiting to reach the hotel as soon as possible. Even though I wanted to make love to her right now, I had another stuff planned for tonight.Dammit!"Are we there yet?" she asked, biting her lips andI glanced at her. She looked absolutely breathtaking in that smoking hot red dress. Fuck, she was just perfect and I still saw that cute little girl from high school in her, despite the makeup and hairdo."Impatient, are we?" I let out a small chuckle and kept driving. We were almost there and once we reached the hotel. I gave the car keys to the valet and took her hands, guiding her through the glass doors."Holy Fuck! Are you staying here for the week?" she asked in shock and amazement. I looked down and found her admiring the interiors of the hotel. She was totally mesmerized by it and almost forgot why we were here in the
My phone kept going off constantly, distracting me from doing my work at the officethe next day and I knew exactly who it was.Man, he never gives up.I picked up my phone with a small smile and saw a dozen text messages from Asshole.Of course, it was him.'I want to take you and Abby out for dinner tonight. Please don't say nooooo' -Asshole.I let out a small chuckle and typed out my reply.'Like a date?''Of course, baby.'- Asshole.'You need to get through my dad first.'My phone started to vibrate in my hands as he chose to call instead of responding to my text."Did you tell him already that I'm in town?" he yelled as soon I attended the call. I took my phone a few inches away from my ears, trying to hold back my laughter.
"You are awfully silent. Everything okay, babe?" Tristan asked while driving back to my house. Abby was fast asleep on my shoulders and I kept patting her back softly. I was still in shock with my discovery and couldn't even meet his gaze all evening. I mean, it was unbelievable that he kept the carnival ticket from our first date even after all these years. I was literally blown away and my heart was thumping against my chest wildly."I--I'm fine," I spoke after a few seconds but he wasn't convinced and kept giving me sideways glances now and then."Iknow you better than that. Do you...Ummm...regret this evening?""What?" I asked immediately and gave him a 'are you crazy' look, "Of course not, I'm just so glad that it went well and it wasn't awkward at all. She warmed up to you so fast.""I am her father, Duh! And, yeah, she is amazing. I want to be with her, Riley. I want to get
"Leaving early, I see." I heard a deep voice from behind, causing me to jump from my seat."Jesus Christ!" I shrieked in fear and turned around to meet a pair of familiar crystal blue orbs."Sorry, didn't mean to scare you." He raised his hands in defense and I let out an embarrassed chuckle."It's okay, Mr.Reed and yeah, I'm leaving early today," I replied with a small smile and grabbed my things. He was still standing at my desk behind me and I was feeling a bit awkward. I wasn't the type to make small talk and I had no idea why he was still standing right there."Ummm... Is there something I can do?" I asked, trying to keep myself distracted by arranging random things on my desk."Oh yeah, I wanted to ask if you submitted the documents and how do you feel about working here?" he asked, smiling down at me warmly and I let out a soft sigh."I submitted the documents this
"I will bring her to the park tomorrow because it's not safe for you to come to my house right now," I explained through the phone as I settled on my bed, pulling the covers over my body. I was so tired because of the jetlag and just wanted to fallasleep already."Why not?" came his response almost in an instant and I rolled my sleepy eyes."Well, if you want my dad to kill you, you are more than welcome, Tristan," I uttered, earning a deep chuckle from him that made me feel warm on the inside.God, I missed that chuckle so much."I think I can handle him, babycakes but we can meet at the park tomorrow, you know just to be safe." He sighed and I remained silent, trying to suppress my smile.Apart from me wanted to lose my ego and just forget everything. I could understand why he pushed me away and he was really dumb to think that I would want a kid more than being wit
Tristan's POV:I kept driving my car aimlessly that night as my mind was completely fucked up. I was shocked beyond anything when I came to know that Riley had a kid but when shetold me that the kid was mine, I almost had a mini heart attack. God, the reason I pushed her away became the opposite ironically and I still couldn't believe that we had a kid.I was a father.Never in my life, I thought I would father a child. I wiped away my tears and hit the brakes, running my fingers through my hair in pain and frustration.I put her through hell because of my immature thinking. She was right. I should have told her the truth and made her decide for herself. I fucked up big time and the fact that she raised our kid all alone was too much for me to bear. I should have been there with her through every fucking step of it. I should have taken care of my girl.
I kept pacing around in my hotel room, feeling all kinds of mixed emotions. Rage and anger dominated everything else. I wanted to kill him but at the same time, my grandmother's words and Lucy's words haunted me. Abby needs her father and he deserves to know about her no matter howbad and evil he might be. I wouldn't get another chance like this.Seeing him today at school broke me all over again and it was like trying to forget about him all these years made absolutely no sense. He still looked annoyingly handsome and even more hot if that was even possible.Ugh! I hated him so much.Why did I run into him? Of all the places, he had to work at our high school.Un-fucking-believable!I sat down on my bed and picked up my phone slowly. I went through my contacts and there his number stared right back at me.Asshole!
