Little Sunshine Before Dark

Sacha's POV

"Christian? What are you doing here?" I was shell-shocked. He was there, right in front of me, smiling but panting as if he had been running laps around the world.

"You." He came closer to me, our lips barely an inch apart. He cupped my face between the palms of his hands and looked right into my eyes.

"You're all I need. I needed you before. I need you right now. I need you forever," he whispered in my ear before kissing me on the cheek.

"But... But... Your wedding, your fiancee," I stuttered.

"That is over with. All I need is you Sacha. I want to have a family with you. I want us to to raise our child together and I want to be there for Judy. She's a great kid."

Happy tears slipped out my eyes. I must be dreaming. I've been too obsessed with Christian Alexander that it reaches to a point where I was imagining him confessing his feelings to me on the doorsteps.

"I love you. I'm in love with you," his voice said again.

Yep, I'm definitely dreaming.

Wake your ass up Sacha!

"Christian, am I dreaming?" I asked.

He chuckled. "Baby, you're not dreaming. I'm here. For real."

I attacked him with kisses. My dream had finally became true. He loves me. He wants to be with me and start a family with me.

I left my legs lifted up from under me. Christian was carrying me into the house now. I clinged to his shoulders as if my life depended on it, but it wasn't like if he was about to drop me or anything like that. I just liked the strong hold I had on him.

Remy was still present. Her eyes expanded when she saw him carrying me and a smile formed on her face.

I hope it was genuine this time.

I was still giving her the side-eye and being mindful of what I said and exposed to her. Oh, how I wished Christian had came by when she went to bed.

"Hi Christian," she greeted him.

"Hi, Remy. How are you?" he asked her.

"I'm okay. I'll give you guys some space." She picked up Judy and she got off the couch she was sitting on and went to one of the guest bedrooms she was occupying while being here with me.

"Her mom passed and she's really going through it right now. I just wanna be there for her. As a friend," I explained to Christian once he set me down on the couch.

"I understand. It must be rough for her. I'm so glad you have a good heart."

"Yes, but it's not to be taken for granted," I cautioned and eyed him seriously.

Some men always think that they can take advantage of a woman's soft heart by breaking it over and over again, and she'll take him back every time.

Not me. I believe in second chances but on the third strike, you're out! Next.

"Christian," I said, turning to him. He was rubbing my stomach gently.

"Hmm," he answered.

"The first night I saw you at the club, I loved you. I couldn't stop thinking about you and it seemed like fate pulled us together."

"I'm sorry for what I did to you," he told me.

I sat up straight. "What did you do?"

"I treated you like some kind of porn star, like an escort service girl when you're the perfect wife material. I was stupid for doing so and I don't know if I can forgive myself for that or if you'll ever forgive me as well."

"There's nothing to forgive. You've help me out of a situation that no one else could have. You gave me this house and a big fat check. I'm grateful for you."

It was my turn to cup his face. Sadness in his eyes that drafted away when I kissed him gently on the lips. It deepened.

His warmth touch to my body made the world fell silent around me. His arms circled my slender waist as he pulled me on top of him.

I was hovering him now. I looked into his pair of beautiful eyes.

How can this one man be so freaking handsome? He's everything and more.

"I love you," I told him.

"I love you too," he replied.

"Sacha!" I heard Judy calling. I quickly dismounted Christian. Judy appeared shortly after, rubbing her eyes and blowing her nose in a tissue.

"Are you okay?" I asked her, going to her side.

"I think I'm catching the cold," she said.

"Oh no. I'm so sorry. I'll take you to the doctor first thing tomorrow, okay. Go on back to bed."

But instead, Judy made a beeline to Christian. She wrapped her tiny arms around his neck.

"I knew you'd come back to us," I heard her told him. A eyes escaped from my eyes. She was drawn to him also immediately when they met.

"It's good to be back, Kiddo. Sorry you're catching the cold."

"I'm going back to bed. I don't want you to catch the cold too. Good night."

"Good night." Christian and I watched her climb the stairs and went into her own bedroom.


The next morning, I searched for a private children's doctor who'll attend to kids on a Sunday.

I was up early, had already prepared breakfast and ready to take my sister to the doctor.

Christian appeared next to me in the kitchen.

"Good morning, beautiful."

"Good morning, handsome."

"Why don't I take Judy to the doctor and you just relax today?"


"Yay! Christian is taking me to the doctor!" Judy squealed as she overheard Christian's question when she came into the kitchen.

"Okay. Don't have too much fun without me," I told them.

After they had their breakfast, and I told him the doctor who'll be available, they left.


Christian's POV

"Want to listen to some music?" I asked Judy as we drove to the doctor's office.

"Alvin and The Chipmunks," she replied.

I laughed and commanded my car to play those sound tracks. Judy sang along to the chipmunks version for Bruno Mars' 'Uptown Funk'.

"This is my favourite part," she said. And started singing, "Girls hit your hallelujah (ooh)

Girls hit your hallelujah (ooh)

Girls hit your hallelujah (ooh)

'Cause uptown funk gon' give it to you

'Cause uptown funk gon' give it to you

'Cause uptown funk gon' give it to you

Saturday night and we in the spot

Don't believe me just watch (Come on)"

She was moving her fingers as if she was playing a guitar. I chuckled again as I drove onwards.

After the doctor's appointment and Judy got her medicines, I took her to get a bite to eat then head back to the house, but on the way there, I noticed my Range Rover was following.

I pulled to the side of the road and looked in the mirror. Audrey stopped right behind me. I locked the doors to my car and made a U turn.

I wasn't about to drive to the house with her on my tail. I heard the screeching of racing tyres and Audrey rammed the Range Rover into the back of my car.

"AUDREY STOP! THERE'S A CHILD IN THE BACK SEAT! What the hell are you doing!" I yelled.

Judy started crying and screaming as another hit was delivered. I saw Judy's body leaped foward but the seatbelt kept her in place afterwards.

I speed on, trying to escape.

"Laura, call 911," I spoke to my car system.

"Calling 911," she responded.

Another hit was delivered to my Mercedes Benz.

"911, what's your emergency?" the operator asked.

"I need the police. My ex fiancee is trying... She's trying to run me off the road."

"What's your location?"

"We're on....."

The hardest hit came. My car collided with a street pole. All I heard were the final sound of Judy screaming and the breaking of my windshield before my head hit the steering wheel and everything went dark.
