The song for this chapter that's plays in my head is called "Right here waiting." by Richard Marx. Take a minute to listen.
"I miss you too." He said. I looked over as the tears filled his eyes.
"Hunter, please don't cry." I said as I moved close to him and wrapped my arms around him.
"I think I"ll be sad forever." He said and my heart broke into a million pieces.
"I wont let you be sad forever." I said, as I kissed his forehead. He laid his head against my breast and I held onto him tighter. I kissed his head again. He looked up at me and I just couldn't help myself. My lips went to his softly. I felt his hand go behind my hand and grab a handful of hair and he pulled me even closer to him. Without breaking our kiss he pulled me on top of him into his lap. My arms went around his neck. I didn't care about anything but him at that moment. Hunter picked me up and I wrapped my legs around him. He carried back into the bedroom he was staying in. I looked around and didn't see Tim sleeping in his bed.
Hunter gently laid me down on the bed. I pulled my shirt up over my head. Hunter removed his shirt and tossed it across the room. He came back down to me and our lips met again. I felt love and only love. This wasn't fast or heated. This was making love. It was slow and caring and romantic. He slowly started to kiss me down my body. Every time his lips met with my body it came alive. He was taking his time with me. My hands were softly in his hair. He softly kissed my stomach and came back up to my lips. He moved himself back down my body and removed my pants. He stood up and removed his jeans. He was so beautiful to look at. I didn't want this to stop ever. I felt his fingers take a hold of my panties. He pulled them down and I grabbed his boxers and removed them. His arm went under my thighs and he pulled them up as he slowly entered my body.
"I love you so much." He whispered in my ear.
"I love you too Hunter." I said.
"Please stay with me. Please don't leave me again." He said. His words were crushing me. He found my lips again. We made love though out the rest of the night. I laid there awake with Hunter sleeping on my chest. My fingers were running thought his hair. My mind was full and I couldn't separate my thoughts. I must of fallen asleep because I woke up the next morning facing Hunter who was still asleep. I just laid there and watched him. The feelings that I was having were ones I never felt with Cooper. I truly felt at home next to Hunter. This is where I belong and always have. My mind was made up right there and then. Hunter was home and I knew what I had to do. He rolled over and smiled at me.
"Your still here." He said.
"I'm not going anywhere." I said back to him. I pressed my lips to his. Just like that the passion came flooding back to my body. I climbed on top of him and felt that he was already to go again. Both of us were still naked and I slide down on top of him. I heard him growl as I did all the work. I missed every inch of him and I couldn't get enough. I gripped his chest as I moved slowly up and down him.
"Take your time love, I want to feel all of you." He said. His hands were all over my body. I couldn't believe just how in love with him I was and the fact that it lasted this long. Hunter is my best friend, my soulmate, my lover and family. It was getting late and I knew the boys were awake. I jumped into the shower and went into the kitchen to make some breakfast. When I walked into the living room. I found the boys watching cartoons and my mother was sitting in her chair with a smile on her face.
"Please mom, don't start." I said.
"I'm not saying a word." She said still smiling. I walked into the kitchen and she followed me. "I will however say this, you need to figure out what it is that your doing. N more playing around with anyone hearts." She said. I turned to face her.
"I know what I want now and I'm going to take care of it." I said.
"Hunter?" She said. I looked back at her.
"What about him?" I asked.
"It's Hunter, right?" She said. All I could do was nod at her.
"It's always been Hunter mom." I said.
"Hunny, I already knew that." She said smiling. That's when I heard someone walk in. I turned and Hunter was standing in the kitchen door way. He had his gorgeous smile on his face.
"What's me Chloe?" He asked. I looked at him and my face was full of love.
"My home Hunter, my life, my heart. It's you." I said. I was bum rushed as he ran into the kitchen and picked me up into the air.
"Your choosing me?" He said.
"Yes, it's always been you." I said. His lips crashed into mine and I heard my mother say.
"It's about time." As she left the kitchen. Hunter sat down and looked at me.
"What about Cooper?" He asked me. I took a deep breath.
"I love him Hunter. You have no idea what that man has done for me. He is Sam's father and he will always be a part of our lives, but I've got to let him go. It's not fare to him for me to stay when I love you as much as I do." I said. I felt the sadness inside me, but I had to stop all these mind games and be true to my heart and every one else's. Hunter sat there and pushed some of my hair back.
"I knew it the whole time. I just had to wait for you to see it." he said. We kissed again. If things were going to go the way they were suppose to go then Cooper would be home in two weeks. I wasn't going to tell him anything over the phone. I owed him more then that. He didn't call in very often and when he did. The calls were very brief. The next week went by very good. Hunter and I couldn't get enough of each other. When we were alone we were all over each other. Hunter and I went back to his house and we took down his daughters room. We both felt it was better on him to clean her things up. It was pretty hard on him and I had told him he didn't have to do this, but he wanted to move on with his life. I didn't argue with him. We had talked about moving into a new home together, but I told him I loved his home and we didn't have to do all that. He got upset whenever I called it his home. "This is your home Chloe." He would say to me every time.
It was two day's before Cooper would be home. Hunter went out and got the kids bunk beds to share a room together. There room for both boys to have their own, but they slept together anyways. I tried to tell Hunter that Sam was still in a crib, but Hunter wasn't having it.
"He is a big boy and can be in the bed like Tim." He said. That of course won Sam over. I didn't stand a chance against the three of them. I just shook my head and let them have their way. They think they are cute when they gang up on me. This usually happens over what's for dinner and I get gang up on when Hunter announcers that he wants pizza or burgers. I warned them all that someday there might be another girl in this house and that they would start to lose the battles. Then of course Hunter would chime in. "You think she ain't going to want pizza?" And they would all start laughing. Of course Sam didn't know what the hell was going on, but he would follow Hunter and Tim. I told them to stop turning Sam against me. Even thought they were driving me crazy. My heart was so full of love for the three of them. I would just stand back and watch them. This is where I belong. We went though what we did for a reason. I had to believe that.
Today was he day Cooper would be coming home. I wasn't surehow I was going to approach the situation. I was nervous and I knew this was going to be a very sad day. For Cooper and myself. I didn't want to hurt him in any way, but no matter how I do it. It's going to hurt. I kissed Hunter goodbye and promised him that I would be back. The look on his face made me believe he was very worried himself. I did my best to reassure him, but I don't think it was working. I just kissed him and Sam and I headed back to my mother's. When I got to my mothers she was sitting on the porch. I took a deep breath and walked onto the porch with her. Sam went inside and turned the TV on. "How are you going to do this?" She asked me.
"I'm just going to tell him the truth," I said.
"I'm sorry you have to do this Chloe." She said putting her hand on top of mine. I looked down and realized I was picking at my cuticles and making them bleed. I didn't realize I was so nervous. I started to feel so sad. That's when I saw his truck coming down the driveway. I took a deep breath as my mother got up and left the porch. She touched my shoulder as she walked by me. I looked up at her and felt the tears sting my eyes. "You'll be okay Chloe. Everyone will be okay." She said and went inside. I turned back as I saw Cooper get out of his truck. He had a smile on his face as he started to make his way towards me. Before I could say a word. Sam came running out of the house, hollering
"Daddy!" He ran out to Cooper and Cooper swooped him into his arms. This just got harder.
