Suddenly.... Love crept in.

Chapter 47. I heard everything.

"I love him" I said outloud and it felt right, it was my official self declaration. I loved him. My husband to be, the father of my baby.

"I love him" I screamed again.

"I always knew that" a voice said and my mood changed instantly. I'd know that voice anywhere. It belonged to the nasty piece of shit that I once loved. How could I have been so stupid? Even the sound of his voice now made my skin crawl in disgust.

"What the fuck are you doing here?" I asked without turning around.

"Is that the way you speak to the man you love?" He asked

"Is it crack that you smoke?" I asked and he looked at me a bit bewildered

"Huh?" He questioned

"Is crack the name of the drug you smoke?" I asked him again "cause you must be on crack to imagine that I would love you after all that you've done".

He chuckled. "I see you still have your sense of humor Nicks"

"Don't call me that!" I sneered at him

He began coming towards me and I stepped back.

"Why are you running from me?"

"Eyan I need you to leave, you're not welcomed here".

"But this is a public place".

"Like hell it aint, I'm gonna call security" I warned him.

He grabbed me by my arm as I attempted to walk by him.

"Let me go!" I screamed but he held on tighter. "I will get you back Nicole, even if it's the last thing I do" he said as he tried to kiss me.

"What's the matter with you? Like seriously?, we were in a relationship and you were the one who chose to leave" I said staring him dead in the eye. "If I remember correctly, It was you who said you wanted to see other people"

He sighed

"It was the worst mistake of my life" he said regrettably.

"Oh my, too bad for you though because that ship has sailed, it's no longer sitting at the docks and waiting for you. I have moved on" and I flashed my big diamond ring in front of his face.

When he saw the ring his mouth popped open in shock and I twisted myself free from his grasp.

"As I said, I have moved on and its best you do the same"

"Its not even a year and you're already engaged?... that says a lot"

I scoffed at him, was this bastard for real right now? This has to be a joke I wondered

"The bullshit that keeps coming from your mouth proves to me that you are truly on crack"

"I am not a crackhead!" He yelled

"Really? Well you're sure acting like one, come to think about it, what's today's date?" I asked him.

He hesitated, unsure of why today's date would be relevant to our conversation.

"I'm not sure" he replied

"Today is July fifth"

He stared at me still wondering what significance the date had.

"Let me jog your memory, coincidentally, today make one year since you walked out on me"

"Oh" he replied with a stupid look on his face when the realization dawned on him "I'm so sorry Nicole, please forgive me but I'm in desperate need of another chance"

I rolled my eyes at him.

"You're pathetic!" I said unapologetically and walked away leaving him looking like the asshole that he was.



I opened the door to see Alando standing there, he immediately walked by me and went in the room.

"Oh shit, Alando how long have you been standing there?" I asked nervously

"Long enough" he said with a smile and he glanced over at Eyan.

"So this is the man who stole my woman" Eyan quipped.

I squeezed Alando's hand signaling him to remain calm and he nodded.

"Nigga I'm talking to you" Eyan yelled and grabbed on to Alando's coat.

"What in the world is wrong with you Eyan?" I asked

"You have ten seconds to get your hands off me" Alando told him calmly.

"Oh yeah or what?" Eyan mocked.

"Guys, please stop this" I begged but Eyan refused to let go.

"I'm telling you one last time, get your hands off me"

"And I'm still asking, what the fuck are you going to do about it?" Eyan mocked again.

I watched in complete shock as Eyan went flying across the hospital floor.

"I fucking told you to get your hands off me, you think I'm playing with you, you better get the fuck out before I beat the shit out of you" Alando was mad as hell.

"Son of a bitch, you knock my tooth out" Eyan squealed out in pain.

There was blood on the floor where he landed and I knew he was going to retaliate. So I quickly jumped in the middle and stretched my arms out.

"What's all this noise about?" The security guard asked as there now was a bunch of people gathering at the door staring at us.

"Just great!" I sighed

"I'll tell you what's going on, the great doctor here knocked my tooth out" Eyan told the guard as he took his tooth up from the floor.

"He assaulted me and I defended myself " Alando said in defense

"That nigga is ........"

"Stop it drama queen, don't even think about lying because you know what the Doctor said is the truth" I stopped him in his tracks. I knew he would try to put the blame on Alando because that's the type of person he is.

"I have no reason to lie Nicole "

"That's the whole point you lie for no reason Eyan" I shot back causing a few of the persons at the door to chuckle.

"Dr. King are you alright?" The guard asked.

"Yes I'm fine, just get this bastard out of here" he ordered

"What?!, so who's going to look after my mouth?" Eyan asked

"Go to the dentist" Alando told him as the security guard escorted him to the door.

"Okay folks, there's nothing to see here, continue on with your business" the guard told the few people who were trying to see what was going on.

Then Kyle and Kimone returned from therapy, they both stared at Alando and I with questioning looks on their faces.

"Eyan and Alando got into a fight and Alando knocked his tooth out" I told them quickly.

Kyle's eyes widened and Kimone giggled

"Its so good to see you kimmy" I said as I hugged her and kissed her cheek.

"Its good to see you both" she replied as she rubbed my stomach.

"What was Eyan doing here?" Kyle asked

"He said he was here to visit Kimone" I replied.

"Me? why would he do that though knowing that I don't like him" Kim asked.

Honestly, I wondered the same thing as Kimone did not hide her feelings for Eyan after he hurt me neither did she mince her words when she saw him a few times.

"I think it was just an excuse so he could get to Nicole" Alando added

"Yeah I think so too" Kyle agreed.

I sighed....

"If it's not one thing, it's the other" I said in frustration.

"Sounds like a lot has been going on" Kyle said looking at Alando and I.

"Psshhhh, you have no idea, I'll fill you guys in at another time though" I quickly told them as I was in no mood to go into the shitty details.

"Oooh my God, That rock is huge" kimone gave out in excitement as she noticed the ring on my finger and I blushed.

Alando hugged me from behind and kissed my temple.

"You're looking at Mrs Alando St. Michael King to be" he told them, I could hear the happiness in his voice.

"Damn yow, this bling is blinding, when did this happen?" Kyle asked

"Last night" I answered and smiled with pride.

"Awwww this is so sweet, I'm really happy for the both of you, congrats guys." Kimone told us "I'm even happier that something great came from all of this".

"Yeah, for real, man look at that rock" Kyle said as he stared at my hand again making us all burst into laughter.

Being around my friends made me feel normal again, even though Kimone was not a hundred percent better, she was getting there. I found out she was making a few steps on her own and her memory was almost back to normal. Kyle left to run a couple errands he had and I sat with her talking about everything including my recent near death experience.

I watched as her eyes lit up when I went into the grimy details

"Wow, that's quite an adventure, sounds like a movie" she said.

I laughed out loud.

"I know right"

"Do you think the dream about Alando will come through?" She asked, I could see the concern in her eyes. "I know your mom gets visions like these too and the scary part is they always come to pass"

I sighed

"That's the part that's scaring the shit out of me right now, I cant lose him, not now, not ever" the tears sprang into my eyes but I quickly blinked them away.

"There has to be something you can do to stop it from happening" she said

"But I don't know if there's anything I can do"

Her eyes were focused and I knew she was trying to think.

"Kim, Don't stress yourself I'll figure something out." I told her.

"Wait........" she said grabbing my hand

"How about the prayer circle?" She asked.

I looked at her comfused.

"Yeah, you guys did a prayer circle for me and it worked so why not do it for him and see if it'll stop the bad thing from happening?"

"Wait a minute, you could hear us?" I was in total disbelief.

She smiled,

"Yes I could.... I heard everything"
