Chapter 73. Wins and Losses.
His words sucked the breath right out of me, my body went in immediate shock and I dont know how long it was that I stood there staring into space, in a dazed state thinking of how a decision I made ended up costing me everything.
The look on Alando's face was unforgiving and I knew he was very serious about what he said and to be fair, he has every right to leave. Eyan shot up his car, held us hostage and shot him in the chest leaving him to die in the middle of the street. This was enough to cause a person to hate even the thread that sews your clothes for life but here I was forgiving him.
In the end Alando gave me a choice, he laid the cards on the table for me and I chose. I chosed to disobey him all because of some stupid guilt trip my mind went on.
I was so stupid, what kind of mother chooses a crazy ex over her children? I thought....
Then it hit me....
"My babies!" I yelled as remembered what Alando said he would do if I was to come see Eyan. He took his ring back so that meant he was gonna take my babies next.
"Noooo, please God, don't let him take my babies " I said as I ran back to the MICU.
"Kyrie-Jay...... Allana-Nicole!" I shouted as I busted into the MICU but I was too late, the incubator was empty with a note stuck to it in Alando's handwriting.
"May the choices you make be worth the losses you'll take "
"Oh my God, he's gone and he took my babies, Nooooooo, please God, Noooooooooooooooo" I screamed again
I began running through the hospital screaming Alando's name from the top of my lungs, but no matter how loud I sscreamed I had no voice, no sound came out. I ran through the door and the parking lot was empty, there was no one there. I dropped to the ground and screamed.
As I screamed someone began shaking me....
"Nicole.... honey.... wake up, it's just a dream baby" the voice said.
I opened my eyes and suddenly I was staring into Alando's beautiful green eyes and it instantly reminded me of the very first time I saw him after I woke up in the hospital from fainting to the news that Kimone had met in an accident. I jumped from the sofa and immediately checked the incubator, Allana-Nicole was asleep but Kyrie-Jay was awake and sucking on his hand.
"Oh my sweet babies" I said with relief "you're still here" I said and then I turned to Alando and kissed him "and you're still here too"
He looked at me funny,
"Where else would we be?" He asked "unless in that dream you had you went to see that bastard and I caught you " he said with a smirk.
"Yes" I said because it made no sense lying to him. "From I heard about Eyan's accident I've been awashed with guilt. I somehow felt like what happened to him was my fault" I told him.
"Aren't you mad at me? I asked
"No, why should I be mad at you, it was just a dream" he said as he drew me down to sit on his lap and placed his arms around me.
"Why would you feel guilty though?" He asked
"I felt as if I had never been by Vanessa's house, he wouldn't feel the need to chase after me, he wouldn't have met in the accident, he would still be alive" I told him and he placed one of his fingers on my lips to silence me.
"Shhhhhh" he said.... then I saw his green eyes soften. "Listen, it happened the way it was meant to"
"You think so?" I asked
"Yes, If he didn't come chasing after you that day, he would've done it another day" he said
"How do you know that?" I asked him
"Because he came to see me a week before his accident while I was laid up in here"
"Wait, did I just hear you correctly.... he did what?" I asked in absolute shock.
"Yes, he came to see me. Told me that you belonged to him and that if it was the last thing he did, he was gonna try and get you back"
"WHAT?!" I squealed
"Yup, even planned on raising my babies as his own, so you see he shaped his own destiny and frankly, I'm glad it ended the way it did cause only God knows the unspeakable things he would have done and the lengths he would have gone through to destroy my family that I worked so hard for "
"What do you mean ended, people can come out of a coma Kimone is a living testimony to that" I said.
"Not him" he said as he stared at me.
"How can you be so sure?" I asked...
He sighed and looked away...
"Talk to me Alando!" I demanded.
"His family took him off life support about twenty minutes ago" he said "so it looks to me like while you were having your vision, it was around the same time he was being taken off"
"No wonder if felt so real" I said to him
Alando was right and it all made sense to me now. And after all was said and done, I'm glad that I got the chance to forgive him before he died and based on my foresight, Eyan was glad too.
"You know, in the vision when you took the babies and left it was the worst feeling that I have ever felt in my whole life. I wanted to die because honestly, there is just no life for me without you and my children" I said and saw love, warmth and everything I needed in his eyes.
"I love you Alando King" I whispered.
"I'm glad you feel that way because I love you even more than you can ever imagine Nicole lyons" he replied and we sealed it with a deep and intimate kiss. As our lips intertwined I felt myself being dragged into another foresight and I stiffened.
I saw myself standing in the new house, at the exact spot that I stood in the foresight I had before when we went to view the house. I was holding a baby in my arms and there was also the sound of another baby's footsteps behind me. I looked at the baby that I held and it was no other than my son Kyrie-Jay and the tiny footsteps I heard belonged to his sister who was giggling and running away from something or should I say someone.
I spun around just in time to see Alando picking her up and tossing her playfully in the air and her giggles got louder. As he held her, I noticed he was was wearing a wedding band. I walked inside the bedroom and noticed on various sections of the walls were our wedding pictures.
"Finally " I whispered and smiled as I was brought back to the present moment.
"What did you see?" He asked and watched as my smile got even bigger....
"I saw happiness, I saw us... we did it babe"
