This week had not been the best of weeks for me. I had just lost my job at the Ad Agency that I was working with in Boston. I hadn’t done anything wrong, they just had too many employees and let go of five of us. Honestly the Agency was going down, but I still needed a job to live.
My week had consisted of me looking everywhere for a job, but I was not finding many in my field. Well unless I wanted to move to a new city. I didn’t want to do that though. It had taken a lot to move to Boston in the first place. So, for now I was just looking for some job that could help me to continue paying my rent.
Today was another one of those dead-end days. I was seriously losing hope at being able to stay in Boston. In the past three years I had fallen in love with the city. I didn’t want to leave. Not right now.
At the moment I was walking through Highland Park, just enjoying the nice sunshine. It was a bit chilly today, but it didn’t bother me one bit. I was just enjoying being out in the city for once. With my old job, it was impossible to find time to do something like this. I was always working.
I decided to take a seat at a vacant bench and take a small break. While doing so, I looked across me to an adjacent bench when I heard a baby crying. The baby sounded very fussy. I noticed a man holding the fussy baby. The man looked to be maybe in his early thirties. He was a little buff but not so much so that it was a turn off. He had a beard that suited him quite well. To top it off he wore a red plaid shirt. The man was very attractive.
The man looked so lost as to what he was supposed to do to comfort the child. I felt bad for him. He was obviously a new dad since the baby looked to be about two or three months old. I wondered where the mother was, because she could definitely help soothe the baby. I waited a few minutes to see if anyone would show up to help him. When no one did, I decided that I would help him. I quickly made my way over to the flustered man.
“Excuse me, I couldn’t help but to notice you were having a little trouble with the little one. Would you like some help?” I asked quietly suddenly feeling odd about doing it.
The man looked up at me in surprise, “You want to help me?” He sounded so surprised like no one had ever offered to help him before.
“Of course. I have some experience with babies and thought maybe I could help you figure out why the little one is crying. I’m sorry if I overstepped my boundaries.” I quickly added the last part.
“I would love some help if you have some time.” He sounded a bit relieved.
“I have all the time in the world right now. Let’s figure out what is bothering the baby.” I answered looking at the baby that was squirming in his arms.
“Okay, I checked his diaper and it’s clean. I just fed him a half hour ago, so he shouldn’t be hungry right now. I don’t know what else to check for. He has been like this since he finished eating, so I decided to take him for a walk.” The man rambled off for me.
I nodded, “Hmm okay, may I see him?” I questioned.
“Oh yes.” He stood up and I took the baby from his arms. I cuddled him and rubbed his back. “What’s wrong buddy?” I asked softly lightly patting his back. The baby was not fussing as much. As I continued to pat his back, I heard a small burp and smiled.
“It seems he just needed to be burped.” I said staring at the most adorable little face I had ever seen. The baby stared up at me in wonder and smiled at me leaning into my embrace. The action warmed my heart and I felt love for the little child that I did not know.
“I knew I was forgetting something.” He mumbled under his breath, “Thank you so much.”
“It was no problem. I didn’t mind helping you at all. Now please tell me, what’s the little guys name?” I asked looking down at the happy baby who was clinging to me.
“His name is Robert. He’s three months old as of yesterday.” The man stated proudly.
“Awe, he’s very adorable.”
“It seems he likes you a lot. He doesn’t let a lot of people hold him. The fact that he’s letting you hold him, and he’s not freaking out means he likes you.”
I felt honored, “Wow, I feel like the chosen one.”
The man laughed, “You should. Robert is very particular about the people he hangs around.”
This made me chuckle. This man had a sense of humor and I liked it a lot. I wanted to know more about him and his son.
“What’s your name?” I questioned bouncing Robert a little making him coo in my arms.
“Oh, that’s right, I never introduced myself. I’m Matthew Porter and well you already know my son, Robert.”
“It seems so. Well I’m Leah. It’s very nice to meet you and your son on such a lovely day.”
“Yes, it’s very nice to meet you. Now how do you know so much about babies? Do you have one at home?” Matthew was curious, and I didn’t mind it at all.
I smiled and shook my head, “Oh no, not at all. I uh worked in a daycare while I was attending college and learned a lot about how to care for babies and toddlers. But I love children, so I tend to know a lot about them.”
“That’s very helpful. I haven’t seen you at this park before. Robert and I come here a lot. Are you new in town?”
“Oh no I’m not. I have actually lived here for three years. I was working for an Ad Agency and I never really had time to explore much. They let me go last week, so I seems to have time now.” I tried not to sound too sad about it.
“I’m sorry about that. So, does that mean you’re looking for a job?”
Why did he want to know that?
“Yes, I am, why?”
Matthew smiled and looked at Robert, “Well what would you say if I offered you a job?”
This intrigued me, “A job? What would I be doing?” I just met this man and now he wanted me to work for him. This was very interesting.
“You seem to know a lot about children, and I seem to know nothing. So, I was wondering if you would allow me to pay you to help me with Robert. Maybe watch him for me when I need you to. Help me understand how to take care of him and raise him right.”
Wow, this was so unexpected. Why would he need my help? Doesn’t he have a wife to help him with Robert? A man like him surely wasn’t single.
“Now I know this is nothing like the job you just left, but I know you need a job and I have the money to pay you.”
“That’s very nice of you. Are you sure you want my help, because I don’t really know much about raising a child?”
“Well you worked at a daycare and watching you with my son proves that you know something. I really think you could help me with this whole parenting thing, because right now I know next to nothing.” He was pretty much pleading me.
Now I was very curious as to where Robert’s mother was.
I thought it over for a few seconds before I figured this would be good for me, “I will do it. I will help you with Robert.”
What was I getting myself into?
“Great! Can you come by my place tomorrow for your first day?”
“Of course, I have no job.”
“Awesome, let me write down my address and give you my number. You don’t mind holding Robert for a little while longer, do you?” He asked.
“Not at all, he’s a little angel.” I poked his tummy and he cooed again, smiling up at me. He laid his head on my shoulder and made a content sound. Robert really seemed to like me.
A few minutes later Matthew handed me the paper with his information on it and took Robert from me. I put the paper into my coat pocket.
“Can you come by around 10 am?”
“Yes, I will be there.”
Matthew smiled, “Thank you so much. You’re a life savior. I will see you tomorrow?”
“You’re welcome. Yes, you will.” I smiled at Matthew and Robert before bidding goodbye to them. I went home with a smile on my face. I had a job and I was going to be working with the most adorable baby ever. Not to mention his father is really attractive.
The next morning, I woke up extra early to make myself look presentable and eat a nice breakfast. I discovered that Matthew only lived about four blocks from me, so I decided to walk to his house. The walk could help me to prepare myself for spending the day with a really attractive man.
When I arrived at the house, I was in awe at the beautiful house in front of me. It was part of a block of buildings, but it was pretty big. I knew most of these places were several floors and very beautiful inside. The building itself was red brick with black shutters framing the windows. The door was a light green color. The place was very beautiful.
I took a deep breath before ringing the doorbell. I don’t know why I was nervous. Probably because I would be spending some time with a really attractive man and his adorable son. I wanted to make a good impression on him.
The door opened a few minutes later to reveal a smiling Matthew, “Good morning Leah, come on in.” He moved to the side to allow me to enter his home.
Immediately in front of us was a staircase that lead to the second floor, then there was a hallway that led back to what I believe was the kitchen. There was a living room off to our left. The place was very nicely decorated. It made me wonder what Matthew did for a living.
“Good morning Matthew. How are you and Robert doing this morning?” I asked politely.
“We’re very good, thank you. I just laid Robert down for his morning nap and we should have a good hour in a half to talk before he wakes up. Would you like some coffee?” Matthew motioned for me to follow him to the kitchen.
We entered a very open room. The kitchen was off to the left and it was decorated with beautiful white cabinets and a lovely light grey granite countertop. There was an island that seated three people located right in front of the bulk of the kitchen. To the right of us was a cute little dining room with a light mahogany table set. The room was decorated with some lovely paintings.
“Coffee would be nice.” I answered as Matthew made his way to his Keurig coffee maker. I took a seat at the island, watching him in silence. I was dying to ask about Robert’s mother. Maybe she was working?
Matthew turned around and faced me while the coffee brewed, “I can feel your eyes burning into my back. I know you have questions for me. Go ahead and ask them.”
I felt like I had been caught and it made me feel slightly guilty.
“Uh okay. I’m sorry if this is totally rude. Where’s Robert’s mother?” I honestly regretted it as soon as I asked. It was completely rude of me to ask him that.
“Don’t worry, I don’t think it is rude.” He quickly answered.
I let out the breath I had been holding.
“His mother isn’t in our lives anymore. Her and I dated a while ago and she left me for another man. Six months ago, she called and told me she was pregnant with my child. There was no doubt in my mind that the child was mine. I didn’t know what to believe. Then she told me that she was giving me the child once it was born and leaving with her boyfriend. So, when Robert was born three months later, she showed up at my door with a tiny nameless little boy. She signed over all her rights and left. I named him Robert which is my middle name. Robert Nathaniel Porter. My mother has been helping me as much as she can, but she’s still working, so it gets hard for her.” He explained without missing a beat.
I was shocked to hear all of that. Poor Robert. His mother didn’t wish to be a part of his life? That was so heartbreaking. How could a mother just leave her child like that?
“Wow, I’m sorry about that.”
He shrugged, “Don’t be. Robert is the best thing that’s ever happened to me. Before him I was an overworked CEO who never made any time for anyone but myself and my job. Now that I have Robert, I understand that my job is not as important as I thought. My son in my first priority.”
“Robert has a great father.” I blurted out without thinking.
Matthew chuckled, “Thank you. Now that you know a little about me, please tell me about yourself?”
I nodded and launched into my story. Where I grew up in a little town in New Jersey and moved to Boston a year after I had earned my Advertising degree. I explained a little about my family. An older brother and a younger sister. I talked about my loving parents. I told him my passions and all of that. He asked whether I was in a relationship or not. I was not. I hadn’t had a boyfriend for over a year now. He seemed happy to learn that I was single.
Shortly after that Robert woke up and Matthew started to talk about what I would do for him and how I would help Robert. I was so excited to be working with the happy little baby. I so wanted a son like him one day. He was nothing but loving towards Matthew and me. I knew I would like to work for Matthew and Robert.
Eight months had passed by and I loved working for Matt. Robert was honestly the best baby that I have had the pleasure of working with. He was always so happy to see me. Matt really liked having me around too. I was really good with his son and I really helped him understand what his son needed and any given time.
Tonight, I was going to be watching Robert late because Matthew had an emergency meeting at work. Matthew was not sure when he would be home, but he apologized a billion times for calling me over last minute. I simply laughed it off and told him I would be fine.
Robert was just eating dinner now.
“Oh Robert, you’re such a sweet little boy. How could anyone leave you?” I pushed back some of the fluffy hair on his little head.
Eight months and I was still hung up on the fact that his mother just left him so easily. I could never leave my child. I wanted children so bad that I would never leave them. So I guess his mother just wasn’t planning on children. Robert was lucky to have Matt. He was the best father.
Robert giggled and played with the food on his plate without another care in the world.
“Oh baby, I could never leave you.” I was deeply in love with this little boy. I didn’t know what I would do with myself once Matthew didn’t need me around. I loved spending time with him and his son.
A little while later, after Robert finished his food and I had cleaned up after him. We were headed upstairs for his bath. I quickly readied the bath while balancing Robert on my hip. I didn’t mind toting him around like this. I often did it when Matt and I went for walks with the baby. Robert loved walks and frankly so did Matt and me. It made me smile to think that people saw us as a little family. I knew that was a very selfish thought.
“Okay Robert are you ready for a bath?” I questioned setting him on the counter and starting to remove his clothes. He just looked at me and giggled as I readied him for the bath. “You’re such a happy little boy, aren’t you?” I questioned as he continued to giggle.
Once I got him into the bath, he began to splash and play around in the water. This little boy really lit up my life. I always loved spending time with him. I was lucky that Matt allowed me to see him almost every day. Matthew. Oh man did I have feelings for that man. I was crushing so hard on him.
“You know Robert, I really like your daddy.” I spoke as I washed him up. He looked up at me in wonder, almost like he knew what I was saying but I knew he didn’t. “I don’t think your daddy would like me the way I like him but it’s okay. I just like spending time with him.”
Robert made a whining sound.
“Oh buddy, I love spending time with you too.” I quickly said making him smile up at me again. Robert sure loved getting attention from me.
We quickly finished up his bath and I caught him yawning, which made me yawn as well. I suddenly felt very tired too, but I knew I couldn’t sleep. Not yet anyway. I quickly dried off the baby and dressed him in his pj’s before bringing to his room. He was already falling asleep in my arms, so I laid him down and pulled a light blanket over him.
“Good night, little guy.” I whispered before finally leaving him to sleep. I yawned again as I shut the door behind me and turned on the baby monitor.
I was headed back downstairs when I passed Matthew’s room. I had only been inside a few times, but I knew he had a really comfortable bed. Well at least it looked it. I really wanted to try it. I stopped and debated whether I was going to actually go in a lay on Matthew’s bed. It would be incredible wrong of me, but he would never know. I mean I can test it and leave the room before he even returned from the meeting. He would never know. That was enough for me.
I let myself into his room, leaving my shoes at the edge of the bed. I placed the baby monitor on the end table and climbed up into the bed. The minute my head hit the pillow, I was gone. I had drifted to sleep almost immediately, even though that’s not what I wanted to happen.
I hated that I had a meeting tonight, I wanted nothing more than to spend my Friday night with Robert and Leah. I had a plan to invite her over for a movie and then after I was going to tell her how I felt about her. I really liked her, and I have since the day I met her in the park when she offered to help me with my son. She was an angel and I was in love with her. My heart beat faster whenever I saw her with my son.
I entered the house and expected to find her on the couch watching TV or something, but she wasn’t. I knew she was here though because her purse was still sitting on the hallway table. I had a feeling she had fallen asleep. Maybe she’s in the guest room?
Discarding my coat and bag in the hall closet, I made my way upstairs. Heading to the end of the hall to check on Robert. He was sleeping peacefully like he always did. Leah was a godsend with putting him to bed. I had so much trouble getting him to sleep when I first got him, but Leah really helped with that. I smiled at my son and then left the room for the guest room.
As I was passing my room, I glanced inside and stopped when I spotted someone laying in my bed. It was Leah. She was sleeping very peacefully in my bed, all curled up on top of the comforter. She looked like an angel when she slept. I stood in the doorway watching her for a little while. I was just so happy that I had fallen for such an amazing woman. I was positive she had fallen for me too.
It actually made me smile to see her in my bed. I honestly loved the sight. I couldn’t help but think that she looked like she belonged there. Damn did I really love this woman. I let her sleep for a little while longer before I decided to wake her up. I strode into the room and over to the sleeping beauty in my bed. I didn’t want to wake her up at all, but I knew I had to.
I lightly shook her shoulder, “Wake up Leah?” I said softly seeing her beginning to stir.
I was having a nice dream when a voice cut through my dream.
“Wake up Leah.”
I wanted to groan and roll over to go back to sleep but the voice was very alluring, and I wanted to find out who was talking to me. So, I forced myself to wake up. I opened my eyes and looked up into Matt’ hazel eyes.
“Oh my god, I fell asleep in your bed!” I jumped up in shock. I was so mad at myself for falling asleep in his bed.
“Oh god, are you going to fire me? Ugh, you’re going to fire me. I’m so sorry. God I’m the worst employee ever. I’m so sorry.” I rambled on embarrassing myself further.
Matthew tried to speak but I just kept on talking about how I deserved be fired and how I was so sorry for what I had done. I would not stop rambling. So, Matt shut me up by leaning in a kissing me. I blushed deeply as he pulled away.
“I’m not going to fire you, Leah. I don’t mind at all.” Matt said leaning in and kissing me again. This time I happily kissed him back. I had wanted to kiss him for a while now and I wasn’t going to pass up this opportunity. It felt really nice to finally kiss him and the best part was that he was the one to kiss me first.
He laid me back and hovered over me while still kissing me. The kiss grew deeper and it was perfect. I felt like I was in heaven. Matt pulled away from the kiss and started kissing down to my neck, biting it lightly.
“I want you Leah.” He growled against my skin.
Those words sent chills through my body. I knew exactly what he wanted, and I wanted it too. I wanted it so bad. I needed it so bad.
“Then take me.” I said trying not to sound very desperate, but I was, and it was no lie.
His hands traveled to the bottom of my shirt, “Gladly.” He smirked as he pulled the shirt upwards, I moved and allowed him to pull it off. Once it was removed he removed his own shirt before going back to kissing my neck. He was causing me immense pleasure and he hasn’t even removed all my clothes yet.
“You don’t know how long I have wanted you.” He kissed his way down my stomach, stopping at the top of my jeans. “Watching you with Robert has made me truly happy. You’re so great with him.” He kissed my stomach a little before finally unbuttoning the jeans. He pulled them off with no effort at all.
I pushed him back and started to unbutton his pants, “I have wanted you for so long, Matthew. I love being able to care for your son. Not to mention being able to see you.” I pulled him into a searing kiss as I pushed his pants off.
He pushed me back again and began kissing me with such passion. While we kissed his hands found their way behind me and unclasped my bra, pulling that off quickly. Then he cupped one of my breasts with his left hand while the other traveled between us and stopped at the top of my panty line.
“Do you want this?” Matthew asked not going any farther.
I nodded my head, “Yes, please Matthew. I want this so bad.” I was nearly moaning already.
“Of course, baby.” His hand slipped underneath my panties diving into my wets folds. He immediately found my clit, rubbing it lightly making me whimper at the light touch. He applied a little more pressure while his left hand played with my nipples, bringing me even more pleasure.
“Oh, that feels so good.” I moaned at the sensations.
“Does that feel good?” He increased pressure yet again and I nearly lost it then.
“Yes, oh yes it does. Mhmm.” His fingers moved to my wet entrance, testing it before thrusting two fingers into me. I moaned a little louder now but bit my lip to contain it so I wouldn’t wake the baby. As he pumped his fingers into me, his palm rubbed against my clit adding to the pleasure. He was also still playing with my nipples.
“Are you going to cum for me, baby?” He increased his pace and I was getting very close.
“Yes yes, I’m so close.” As I said that my walls tightened around his fingers signaling the start of my orgasm. “Oh god yes…” I moaned as I came around his fingers.
He helped me ride through the orgasm before pulling his hand from my panties. Then he stuck them into his mouth, sucking off every last bit of my essence and moaning as he did so.
“Oh, you taste wonderful.” Matt quickly removed his underwear and reached over into his nightstand, pulling out a condom. It took him less than a minute to slid it on and then he positioned himself at my entrance. “Are you ready?”
“Mhmm, please take me.” He slid into me, filling me up. I loved the way he filled me up.
“Damn Leah, you feel so good wrapped around me.”
He gripped my hips and continued his pace, hitting me in all of the right places. It seemed liked we fit together perfectly, and I loved it. This was what I had been waiting for. It was unreal that this was actually happening.
“Matthew… oh that feels so good….” My words were cut off by my panting. I was in complete bliss and I could feel my second orgasm building.
“As much as I want to last longer, I just can’t.” Matthew admitted as I felt him twitching inside of me.
“It’s okay, please just cum for me. I’m so close as well.” The pleasure was about to bubble over for me. “Cum for me Matthew.” I moaned as I felt myself tightening around him as he thrust into me.
“Damn Leah, oh god.” He finally let go and I felt him cum into the condom. His orgasm triggered mine.
“Matthew!” I moaned quietly as the pleasure racked my body. It felt amazing. We both let the orgasms take us over. He held onto me tightly. Once they had passed he pulled out of me, leaving me briefly to dispose of the condom.
He came back to the bed and pulled me under the sheets with him, “Leah I have to talk to you about something.” He sounded a little apprehensive which immediately made me think of the worse possible scenario.
“What is it?” I tried to hide my nervousness. Did I just make a mistake by sleeping with my boss?
“I don’t want you working for me anymore.” My heart stopped. I did make a mistake. “Calm down Leah, it’s not like that. I actually found you another job.
I looked up at him in surprise, “What do you mean?”
“Well my company has their own in-house Advertising Team and they’re looking for a lead manager for the team. I have recommended you for the job and I can assure you that you pretty much have the job.”
Wow, Matthew did that for me?
“That’s amazing, thank you Matthew. I would love that job.” I hugged him and then kissed his lips.
“I knew you would. Oh, I also have another question for you?”
“Yes?” This time I wasn’t as nervous.
“Will you go on a date with me, Leah?” He was the one who sounded nervous this time.
I smiled, “Of course I will. I have liked you for a long while, so I would be crazy to say no.”
He smiled and pulled me into a kiss, “Thank you for making me the happiest man. Now we should get some sleep before Robert wakes us up.”
“I agree.” I snuggled up to his side and within minutes we were both drifting to sleep.
