Over the last couple of months things have been going good. I get to see Hunter around once a month or so. We either have dinner at his place or they all come over to mine. Hunter and I haven't had any time alone. We are always together with our family's. Hunter hasn't dropped anymore lines my way and has been getting close with Blair. I'm actually very happy for them both. They are good for each other. I don't know how serious it truly is between the two of them. Because like I've said, I never have any alone time with Hunter. Their appearance was very kind and sweet. Cooper and I are doing really good as well. My focus has been on my family. For the last couple of months Cooper and I have been trying to have another baby. Ever since Sam started walking and talking. We have wanted more baby's. I haven't gotten pregnant and it was starting to become a worry. Cooper wasn't worried about it. He just said it will happen when it happens.
I found out from my mother and Hunter and Tim visit her constantly. My mother really loves Tim and she loves Hunter as one of her own. I think its great that Hunter and my mother stay close. My mother is the only real mother Hunter has ever known and I'm glad she still welcomes him in her life. Today I needed to head into town for some shopping and my mom was going to keep Sam for me. I got myself and Sam ready to go and we took off to town. Cooper was off on one of his two week long jobs. As I started to pull into my mothers place I saw Hunters truck parked outside. This will be nice to see him. I wonder if it's just him? I said to myself. I got out of my car and grabbed Sam. My mother came onto the porch. Sam ran his little legs over to her and jumped into her arms. He was still small enough that she could carry him.
"Morning Mom." I said as I stepped onto the porch.
"Morning sweetie, how are you?" She asked me.
"I'm doing good. Is Hunter here?" I asked. She nodded at me with a little bit of a smile on her face. I just rolled my eyes at her and headed inside. Tim was watching cartoons and Sam ran over to him to join. Hunter was sitting at the bar in the kitchen. He looked over and saw me with a surprised look on his face. Then he smiled at me.
"Hey you, what are you doing here?" He asked me. I knew something wasn't right when I saw his face.
"My mom is watching Sam while I run around town. Hunter, what's wrong?" I asked him as I took the seat next to him.
"What makes you think something is wrong?" He asked.
"Really? I've only known you for like ever." I said. He laughed a little and smiled. "Talk to me." I said.
"Blair is pregnant." He said.
"Oh." I said. "Um, is that a good thing?" I asked. I didn't really know what to say. Hunter started to run his hands though his hair.
"I'm not ready for this bubbles." He said. I started to bit my lips.
"What are you going to do?" I asked him.
"That's the thing Chloe. I don't want this to turn out to be like the Tracy situation. When I got Tracy pregnant I wasn't in love with her and I married her because of the pregnancy. I don't know if I'm in love with Blair or not and I don't want to make the same mistake I made with Tracy with Blair. I don't know what to do here bubbles. My head is all over the lace." He said. I took a deep breath. He don't love her. I said to myself.
"Then don't marry her. If you don't know if you love her or not. Then you don't love her. Trust me if you did. You would know it." I said. He turned and looked at me.
"And that's your fault." He said. I cocked my head at him.
"My fault? How is any of this my fault?" I said.
"Because of you, I can't get close to anyone. I'm sorry I didn't mean to say it was your fault. I just mean I can't seem to get close to anyone because of my feelings for you." He said. He turned away from me and I was speechless.
"Hunter, your the one that told me to go to my husband. You made that choice." I said.
"I know and your correct I did, that don't mean I wanted that." He said.
"Damn it Hunter. Why do you say these things to me? How am I suppose to live my life when you say these things?" I say and I started to get loud and I saw my mother take the kids into the back of the house.
"I'm sorry Chloe. Yes I told you to go back to your husband, but you didn't even fight for me." Hunter hollered back at me. Oh my god. I said to myself. He wanted me to fight for him. Fuck, now my head was really messed up. I didn't know what to say at this point. I'm the worst person ever.
"I want you to move on and be happy. You have a new baby on the way. You need to move on." I shouted. I stood up and tried to move myself away from him.
"I love you Chloe. I'm always going to love you. I can't just stand up and make that go away. Trust me I've tried. I've even tried to hate you.
"You have to try." I said to him. He stood up and moved him self closer to me.
"You really want me to do that?" He asked me, only inches away from my face. I nodded at him and he came even closer to me. "I want to kiss you so bad. Every time I see you all I want to do is rip your clothes off and kiss every inch of your body." He said. I caught my breath in mt throat and I could feel the eat inside me. It was taking everything I had not to let him.
"Please Hunter. We can't do this." I whispered out. He closed his eyes and I could see his hands were balled up into fist. I t was taking everything inside himself to walk away. I could feel it all over him. We were both breathing very heavily. I closed my eyes and I felt him take a step back.
"I'm sorry Chloe." I heard him say. I opened my eyes to him walking out of the kitchen. I placed my hand on my face and took a seat. Maybe I need to just stay away from him completely. I said to myself. I stood up and was going to head out of the kitchen myself, but Hunter came flying back into the kitchen. He pushed me up against the wall and our lips crashed into each others. It only lasted a minute. Then he pulled away from me. He got Tim and he left. I stood there in the kitchen just trying to regain myself. My mother came walking in.
"Is everything okay?" She asked me. Oh thank god she didn't see the kiss. I said to myself.
'Yes mom everything is fine." I said. I got my thing and went and did my shopping and then headed back home. My mind was so messed up that I was having a hard time. I didn't know what to do or what to say at this point. Hunter now has my head all messed up about life and Cooper. Over the next seven months. I didn't hear a word from Hunter and I didn't try and reach out to him. I meant it when I said I just needed to stay away from him and I guess he just decided to do the same. I was only able to find out little things that was going on in his life because of my mother. He still sees her but not as often. Blair decided to keep the baby and her and Hunter are still together. She has moved in with him, but he hasn't married her. That's the most I know. I'm still not pregnant myself and Cooper and I have decided to go see our doctor about it. They started to run some test on the both of us. To see if anything could be wrong. Next month Cooper has been called in to do a large job over seas and he will be gone a month if not longer. We have decided that Sam and I will stay with my mother while he is gone.
We got the house all locked up and had my things delivered to my mothers house. This will be the longest Cooper has ever been away from us. I don't know how I feel about it, but we really don't have a choice. Especially with the type of money Cooper will be bringing in over this month. Not that we hurt for money, but it's sill to good of money to pass up. Cooper road with u to my mothers and stayed the night with us. The next morning he had to leave early for the airport. We kissed goodbye and I watched him drive off. I took a deep breath. I hated him leaving for so long and we didn't know how often he could call us. It was like I marred a man in the army. I didn't much care for it. Over the next couple of day it went nice to be spending time with my mother. We cooked together and did crafts. Something I loved to do. She would ask me constantly how things were between Cooper and myself. To which I always told her we were good. She didn't ask me anything about Hunter which I was grateful for. I was however nervous that he would show up here without knowing I was here. So far, I haven't seen him and I've been here about a week now. I heard my cell phone ringing at around three in the morning. Thinking it was Cooper I jumped out of bed and answered it without looking at the screen.
"Coop, is that you?" I said.
"No Chloe, its not Coop. It's Hunter and I need you." He sounded so far away and upset.
"Hunter? What's the matter?" I asked him.
"She's dead Chloe. Blair and my baby are dead. Please come to the hospital. I need you." He said and hung up the phone. My phone fell to the floor.
