Chapter 10 : Miles and Miles and Miles Away

March 8th, Monday.

Isaac Collins POV

News got out all over social media that Miles Gray was just released from house arrest, and that I am pressing charges on him, but no one truly knows the reason why I'm pressing charges.

This morning while I was getting my morning briefing from Piper she tells me that I have a meeting with Corey Gray. That confused me, we already talked, and he threatened me.

But now I find myself sitting in front of the person that I hate the most in this world, the person that caused the most physical and mental pain to the woman that I love, and I’m truly contemplating my life up until this moment.

“What are you doing here?” I said with a stone look on my face.

“I wanted to have a little chat with you,” Miles said with a cheeky smile, yet the smile didn’t quite reach his eyes.

“And you did that by using your father’s name?” I said with disgust adamant on my face and voice.

“Well, I couldn’t exactly use my own, especially when you’re new assistant had told me on the phone that I’m banned,” Miles said playfully.

“Wow,” I breathed out.

“I know, it was a surprise to me too, how could you find a replacement for Row-”

“Don’t say her name,” I said with a withering glare. ” Don’t you dare say her name, you lost the privilege of that a long time ago.” for a second their Miles looked annoyed, from all the time I have known Miles he has never looked annoyed, from all the time he was always doing the annoying. Miles gave me an unsettling look, then smiled again, and continued what he was saying.

"So I pulled some strings, and now I'm here."


"Fine, I'll humour you for the sad pitiful person you are, what do you want." The air around us suddenly turned thick, Miles's snide grin fell as the atmosphere did, and that unsettling look was back.

"I want you to leave her alone."

"I don't seem to understand what you're talking about, her who?" I said playing dumb to try to get a rise out of him. Miles breathed out a laugh while looking at me straight in the eye.

"You know who I'm talking about, you may have fooled everyone but not me." Miles started to dig his fingernails in the armrests, and his navy blue eyes bored into mine, even though he tries to hide it I can see his crazy, the thing he's been trying to hold back for so long I can see it, I just wonder why no one else can until it's too late.

"I know you don't love her, and I know once you're done with her you're going to throw her to the curb, and once you do I'll be right there for her, and she's going to realize she should have never let me go."

"You sick sadistic fuck, you know I'm not surprised that you don't seem to understand what love looks like, especially when your parents are in a loveless marriage, and Cassie never truly loved you." Mile's eyes widened and his breathing got heavier and frantic, but I kept my composure.

"Cassie loved me," Miles shouted.

"And how about the other girls?"

"The other wha- how, how do you know about them?" miles looked scared and confused all at the same time.

"The real question is, how did you know about Rowan way before you met?"

"How do you know about that," Miles said accusingly.

"let's just say I pulled some strings, you know what maybe we should talk about the fact that you knew Rowan would be working for me, and you knew the exact day she would be here, but there is one thing that I just can't wrap my head around, who the fuck told you?"

"I asked my dad's previous assistant that got her resume, but she seemed oblivious to what I was talking about, I asked my desk lady and she had no idea, for God's sake I even asked the vice president of this company and he asked me if I was on cocaine, so tell me."


Rowan's POV

Me and Isaac are at the doctor's office, and I'm currently laying on an examination table that's sitting right beside the ultrasound machine, and Isaac is standing right beside me and we're waiting for the doctor to arrive. All-day Isaac has been acting weird, he won't tell me anything no matter how many times I ask because of doctor's orders, but I'm hoping that this will cheer him up. The doctor walks into the room and with a big smile, she asks.

"So, how are you?"

"Bored, tired, my boobs hurt all the time, and I always seem to have something to eat in my hands," I say bitterly.

"So normal?"

"Mm yeah."

"Ok." The doctor started to set up, she put her gloves on, asked me to pull up my oversized crew neck, exposing my already bloated stomach, looking at it from this angle I am way more pregnant than I actually thought, the doctor then put the cooling gel on my stomach and pressed some buttons on the sonogram, then took the probe and started to move it on my stomach.

She moved it around until she could hear a heartbeat, I looked up at Isaac, a little worried at how he might look, but when I did he look happy, which took a big weight off my shoulders, this is my first time having someone else in the room with me during an ultrasound I've always gone alone, I have my brother but I didn't want him to be there cuz one time the doctor confused my brother as my boyfriend, let's just say we don't talk about that day.

"Do you guys want to know the sex?" the doctor said looking up at us in the question.

"Um, yah," Isaac answered for the both of us.

"Wellll," the doctor said looking closely at the sonogram, she then smiled brightly and said. "It's a boy." Isaac looked stunned for a second.

"For real?"

"Yep," The doctor chirped.


Me and Isaac get home and as soon as I walk into the living room Isaac hugs me from behind and says in my ear.

"Do you want me to massage your boobs?" I turn my head to him with hooded eyes.

"You horny fuck." Isaac smiled.

"Only for you baby." He then picked me up bridal style and walked me up the staircase.
