A few days go by, and Elizabeth thinks about what Victoria said about Brian’s father. It made her wonder. She knew that Brian never really brought him up or anything about him. He never really said too much about his family. The only person she knew was Sean. That seemed to be all Brian had.
Elizabeth is curious and thinks Victoria does know Brian better then she does, knowing his family and parts of him, she never knew. Did Brian not want her to know? Or did he just feel it was in the past and not needed? Elizabeth wasn’t sure of which, then if she thought about, she only asked him about it once. Maybe it was time to do more.
While Brian is in their bedroom, packing to go on tour for the book, Elizabeth walks in. Feeling this might be the time to ask. Just hoping it doesn't bring up any bad memories or feelings for him.
“Sweety, can I ask you something?” Elizabeth says
“Ask me, anything babe,” Brian says with a smile.
“Whatever happened to your father? You never seem to mention him, and I never met him.” Elizabeth replies.
“He left when I was four, mom said he changed his mind about being married and wanted his freedom. He left and we never saw him again. It was just my mom, Sean and I. I don’t really remember much about him and my mother did her best not to say anything about him. Sean doesn't remember anything at all since he was younger.” Brian answers.
“Oh, I am sorry. I was just wondering if you don’t know anything about him, How does Victoria?” Elizabeth says.
“She never met him either, he was long gone before I met her. She just knew my mother and Sean of course. Why what did she say now?” Brian huffs.
“When I went to her house, she said I didn't know what I was in for. That you were just like your father, and soon the shit would hit the fan.” Elizabeth admits.
“She really is grasping at straws, isn’t she. Who the hell knows where the hell my father is. For All, I know he could be dead. And how does she know, if I am like him or not? Let me guess he was a man whore? She can’t seem to let that one go. I got around, I don’t know what the big deal is. I worked as a bouncer, I ran into a lot of women. I was single and I partied. I wanted to forget my past and do all the things I missed as a teen because I was too busy dating Victoria. I am not that person anymore. I like being the family man, I did sow my oats, I am happy being with one person. I hate that people continuedly use that against me.” Brian responds.
“I know you are, and I don't hold any of it against you. What you did before me, has nothing to do with me. Your mine now and I am very happy with that. I was just wondering about her. Do you think she does know more then we think?” Elizabeth asks.
“No, I think she is just being her, a pain in the ass, trying to make trouble. Don’t take anything she says seriously. It was probably just another thing to make you wonder. Since the kiss wasn’t working, or she thinks it wasn’t. I know you had doubts and it almost broke us Elizabeth. I never saw you like that before, no matter what I did, I couldn’t seem to get close to you. I have to say, I really didn't like it at all. I didn’t like that you doubted me either but I understood it.” Brian confesses.
“I am sorry, I couldn’t help it. I have been going through a lot lately even without that. I was hurt, I thought our life as we knew it was over. I didn’t want to lose you or what we have. So many questions filled my head, and I ran with it. ” Elizabeth says.
“Your not, and I know the book is driving you crazy and I am sorry. When you have questions I want you to come to me, and ask me. I will always tell you the truth, its how we are. I want that to stay that way. ” Brian answers.
“It's not only the book, but the thought of leaving our child is also bothering me too. I know it's just for a week, but I don't want to miss anything, not to mention everyone is waiting for part two how about if it sucks? How about if they don’t like it? I know I have been stressing over part three but now that part two is coming out, I am not even sure about that one.” Elizabeth admits.
“Babe, stop everything is going to be ok. Monica loved part two, if they didn’t they wouldn’t have published it. You never did this with the first one.” Brian comments.
“It was different, I was happy if I sold one book. Just for someone to read it. Now that they really like it I don't want to disappoint them. I want them to be just as into it, as they were. To get there money’s worth and want to read more. It's not just a game anymore, something to do because I was bored. Its a job and I want to succeed at it. I don’t want to fail.” Elizabeth replies.
“You're not going to fail, I want you to relax a bit. All this stress isn’t good for you. While we are on the week tour, I want to be with you, I want to be like we were when we first were on tour. I am Zach, you need to let your fantasy man do his thing. To take all your stress away.” Brian says in a sexy voice.
“Hmmm, really? You know how crazy my fanstasy man gets me.” Elizabeth answers.
“Yes, I do, and I like it. I want you to let go. “Brian says moving close to her and kissing her lips.
Elizabeth wraps her arms around him and kisses him back. Maybe this time away would be good. Give them some time to work on there marriage. Elizabeth just hoped everything went well, she was an overthinker and it was getting to her.
