Chapter Thirty Two


Matty’s POV:


I walked in the house excited to take Kiera out for dinner. I was thinking about taking her to Saddle Ranch now that they’re finished with remodeling, plus they’re allowing A-list celebrities in for the opening night.

I can only imagine how many paparazzi will be there trying to snatch a quick shot of my fucking wife. Plus, with all the other celebrities that I’m sure are going to attend the gathering they’re sure to be there to see someone.

After spending seven hours, getting very little done, I thought Kiera would love a night out with it just being the two of us. She doesn’t have a clue where we’re going, but I’ve tipped the press off that she’s going to be attending the Saddle Ranch gathering in attempt to keep them away from us.

I’m sure where I’m taking her they won’t be able to find us. But just to be on the safe side for the sake of Kiera relaxing tonight, I had to do it.

I walked into our bathroom and found Kiera glancing at her body in the extra large mirror with her phone in her hand. She wore her light blue skin tight jeans perfectly around her waist. They hugged her ass shaping it just the way I like it. Every step she takes causes her ass cheeks to jiggle. Her white long sleeve top with the shoulders only being stitched with flower lace showing her skin as a darker shade and a pattern.

Tonight is going to be very eventful. I’m not sure I’m going to be able to control myself around her. I want to rip her tight clothes from her body right now and say fuck the special dinner I had in mind. I want to make sure this is a night to remember. Even though I’m sure she remembers all of the special nights I’ve planned for her.

“Matty,” she snapped her fingers in the air giggling at me, “You good?”

“Damn, baby.” I walked over and stood behind her wrapping my hands around her small baby bump. I kissed her neck and her eyes rolled to the back of her head, “I don’t know if I’m going to be able to contain myself.”

“You’ll need to try,” she placed her hands on top of my hands and pulled away from me grabbing her purse from the bathroom counter, “Or don’t.” she winked at me and walked out of the bathroom seductively.

I didn’t even know females could have a seductive walk. Whatever it is she’s done to me, I can’t get enough of. She’s my drug that I’m happy to live with for the rest of my life. She’s my daily dosage of what I need to function. She makes it all better.

I ran behind her and slapped her ass cheek aggressively, “Don’t tempt me, mi amor.” I winked at her and grabbed the keys from the top of the dresser.

“We shouldn’t stay long,” Kiera said softly wrapping her arms around my waist and looked me in the eyes.

“And why is that? Are you embarrassed to be seen out in public with me?” I teased her cupping my hands on her cheek bones.

“Well, I had this idea to come home and have steamy hot sex. But if you think I’m embarrassed to be seen with you then I guess we can stay out all night.” she teased me by acting like she was going to kiss me but everytime I pushed forward, she bobbed her head back.

My cock is as hard as it was when we first fucked. I don’t know if it’s because of the hormones from the baby or if it’s simply because she loves fucking with me, but she’s become such a tease to me. Everything she does seems to seductive now. It wasn’t like this when she was pregnant with Kelia.

I slowly wrapped my fingers in her curly blonde knots and I lightly pulled. I can tell by the way her knees almost gave out and she bit the corner of her lip with her eyes rolling into the back of her head that she’s enjoying this. She’s enjoying it a little too much.

If she wants to be a tease, I can be a bigger one.

I lightly pressed my moist lips on her open neck and I massaged my lips into her soft strawberry scented skin making her knees grow weaker. I know Kiera. I know all of her kinks and I know everything that makes her weak when it comes to sex.

Her sweet spot is her neck and hair pulling. When being done at the same time, she nearly collapses and her pussy is as wet as the ocean. I’ve studied and mastered her body. Before Kiera, the sex used to only be about me. Even with my ex-girlfriend, it was always about me finishing.

Kiera deserves to be fucked the way that she wants. And I was going to be the one to give her that for the rest of our lives.

“Fuck,” she accidentally moaned. I flicked my tongue against her skin sucking softly. I massaged my way down her neck and I started sucking on her collar bone; another weak spot that I know about.

“Go wait downstairs for me before I bend you over and fuck this shit out of you.” I stopped everything I was doing and let go of her hair, pecking her on the lips.

“Why’d you-,” she came to realization what I’ve done. She chuckled with an evil grin on her face, “You’re going to regret that, babe.”

I was lowkey scared. I’ve seen her get even with Justin during prank wars, I can only imagine what she’s going to do to me.

It’s so worth it.

She walked out of our bedroom and I quickly changed into my khaki’s and white v-neck that hugged my body now that I’ve bulked up, and I finished the look off with my dark blue cardigan. I slipped my dress shoes on and I ran downstairs with the keys in my hand to find Kiera filling Duma’s automatic feeder.

“Ready to go, babe?” I walked over to the front door and put the password into the alarm.

“Ready as I’ll ever be.” she connected her hand with mine and I set the alarm.

I drove towards Saddle Ranch while singing in song to Justin’s new single. We arrived minutes later, but instead of pulling into the parking lot, I drove past the sidewalks that are crowded with flashing lights from the cameras and paps tripping over each other trying to get a shot of the famous Tik Tokers that were cat walking out of limos.

“Where are we going? I thought we were going to Saddle-,”

I grinned evilly while turning the music up to full blast and turning the bass up all the way to max power. I belched Lil Baby’s greatest song of all time, The Bigger Picture, not allowing her to speak over the music.

After several attempts of her trying to turn down the music and me swatting her hand away while I continued rapping the lyrics, she crossed her arms over her chest and pouted looking out the window.

Don’t worry, baby. You won’t have that look on your face when you see where I’m taking you.

We pulled into the pier parking lot and I exited the car to open the door for her. She’s my queen and she shall be treated like a queen.

“What are we doing here?” she was trying to hold back a smile but I could see it trying to break free.

“Screw Saddle Ranch. I want you all to myself tonight.” I pulled down on my cardigan. I don’t know why but she’s making me so nervous right now. My pants are hot and my chest is heavy. I shouldn’t be turned on right now by her weakness from being around me.

“Oh yeah, then what is it exactly that we are doing here?” she held her hand out for me to connect with her and we started walking down the pier.

We approached the yacht that I asked Justin and Hailey to borrow us for the evening. “We’re . . . enjoying ourselves.” I grabbed ahold of her hand and dragged her slowly up the ramp. “Welcome aboard Bieber’s Getaway. Where your dreams come true and-,” I’m sorry Justin, “Yeah, I’m not doing this.”

“What are we doing here?” I glanced at her and saw her face was beat red and she was butterflies by the look on her face.

“We always have someone following us. Whether it’s Garrett or Ricky, or the paps.” I intertwined my fingers with hers and held both of our hands above our shoulders, “I figured we can sail out and eat dinner.”

“And we’ll be joining you,” Hailey and Justin both walked downstairs from the captain’s room.

“Hi!” Kiera reached out and threw herself into Hailey’s and Justin’s arms. I hate to even think it, but I know she enjoys Hailey’s and Justin’s company over everyone else’s. I don’t know if it’s because Justin and she can relate to so much, or if it’s simply because they just click like the three musketeers, but they just work.

“Oh, gosh! Hi! Where are the kids?” she’s so happy to see Justin and Hailey. I love to see her smile. Her straight pearl teeth were in full action, showing her joy that they were joining us on an evening out on the water where it’s only us.

“Mom’s visiting for the weekend from home, so she offered to watch the kids at the hotel. Matty said it was okay, I hope you don’t mind.” Justin said as he pulled away and walked over to dap me up.

“What’s up, bro?” he looks like he hasn’t slept in days. “You good?”

“Yeah, yeah, is it cool if we talk upstairs?” Justin asked whispering. I’m a bit concerned. I shouldn’t be profiling my friends but I can tell by his body language and his facial expressions that something is on his mind. He’s up to something. I can feel it.

I nodded and I kissed Kiera on the cheek quickly before walking up the spiral staircase to the captain’s room following Justin. “Yo, sorry I couldn’t make the hike. Kiera has been driving me crazy with wedding planning.”

“You’re good, bro. I didn’t know you guys even started anything, if you need help I’m sure Hail’s will be happy to help. She planned ours.” he started the engine and we started sailing into the bright sunlight.

“I think she has this one in the bag, but I’ll keep that in mind in case she gets too stressed out.” I chuckled, “What’s up? You wanted to talk.”

“Yeah, I was thinking about asking Hailey to remarry me. I was going to wait for our ten-year anniversary and when the kids were a little older but we’re in kind of a rut.”

I looked at him confused, “Like, sex?” I wasn’t sure what he meant.

“We have no time for ourselves. If she’s at home, I’m in the studio. If I’m at home, she’s at the office. If we’re both home, we’re taking care of the kids. And by the time we make it to the bedroom, we’re both too exhausted to fuck.”

I chuckled at his statement and I saw a small smirk appear on Justin’s face like he was enjoying this conversation. “What do you need me to do?”

“Well first, I’d like to ask if you’d be my best man,” he asked me and I was caught by surprise.

I’ve only been home for about a year and a half. I’ve only known this man for about the same amount of time, and he’s asking me to be his best man? “I’d be honored.”

“It’ll be small and private, close friends and our parents only. I just want to get her another engagement ring.” Justin said.

“What else?” I feel so powerful right now. Nothing in my life could be more perfect.

“It’s one hundred percent okay if you can’t say yes, but would it be possible if you and Kiera watch the kids; five days tops so that we can take a vacation.” he turned off the engine releasing the anchor, and leaned against the wheel. “We’d pay you if need be. My mom offered to stay home with all of them, but I don’t think she’d be able to handle them all. We somehow agreed she’ll keep the baby.”

“Bro, of course. You don’t even have to ask. You have our daughter at Disneyland right now. Whenever you want to just drop them off, just do it.” I chuckled.

“Are you sure? They can be quite the handful.”

“Gabi will be occupied with Kelia and Kiera. I’m sure they’ll have shopping days and she’ll find something to them. I know I’ll be able to find something for the boys, maybe we’ll go to the football field and make them run laps.” I may or may not be serious. I don’t know what the week will bring upon us.

“You’re positive?”

“One hundred percent.” I laughed, “When are you doing this thing?”

“Tonight.” he winked at me and walked out of the captain’s room.

“Wink at me like that again and I’ll show you what you’re missing daddy.” I love teasing the boys like this. It’s funny as fuck watching them get so worked up.

“That’s gay.” he chuckled, “Maybe if my wife decides to say no to marrying me again then I’ll take you up on your offer.” we walked in to see Kiera and Hailey sitting at the table gossiping but as soon as we walked in they held heavy smirks on their faces and they went silent.

“What were you two talking about?” I asked sitting next to Kiera at the table and kissing her cheek.

“What were you two talking about?” Hailey asked with an evil accent.

I glanced at Justin and he shook his head for me to keep quiet, “Touche.”

“How are the kids doing? I hope they aren’t driving you too up the wall.” Kiera giggled at the awkward silence.

“No, they’re great. Gabriella and Kelia are having a blast with each other and the boys are being boys. How are you guys doing?”

“Well, we spent some of yesterday going over a contract for a job offer with Selena and then spent the rest of the day wedding planning.” she hesitated to say Selena’s name.

I hate when she does that. If Hailey and Justin were any friends of Kiera’s then they wouldn’t care that she’s friends with Justin’s ex of almost ten years. Hailey and Justin are happy. I honestly think the feud should end.

“Ooh, wedding planning. Talk to me!” Hailey exclaimed without even flinching at hearing Selena’s name. I’m happy for that, for the sake of Kelia. And for the sake of Justin and Hailey. It’s bad enough they both had to shut their comments off on social media because the haters just got so bad.

“Well, we haven’t decided anything indefinitely except the location and date,” Kiera said.

“Oh, yeah. Where at? Are you still planning to do it in Hawaii?” Justin asked walking into the room with the chef. All of their hands were full of silver platters.

Kiera hesitated to speak. Don’t worry baby, I’ll take one for the team. “Selena offered to allow us to have our wedding on their island that they just bought.”

Neither Justin nor Hailey flinched at the mention of Selena’s name. Maybe the feud has finally ended. “We wanted to have a bunch of people from high school and back home to come, but I think it would be more meaningful if it’s just close friends and family. And when Selena presented the privacy we were looking for-,”

“Babe,” Hailey giggled, “You don’t have to hesitate to speak about her around us. We aren’t upset that you’re friends with her. What kind of human beings would be if we did that? Do you think she would mind if we were invited?”

Kiera sighed with relief on her once tense shoulders, “She won’t mind. I hope you don’t mind, but I was wondering if you’d like to be one of my bridesmaids?”

“Yes!” Hailey reached over the table and hugged Kiera tightly. “When is it?”

“You’ll get your invitations when you get them.” I placed my hand over Kiera’s mouth to keep her from telling them any more information. I want it to be a surprise to everyone when they get the invitations and I don’t want to ruin it for Kiera to have the full experience. “Justin, you want to be one of my groomsmen?”

It’s ironic that Justin was just asking me to be his groomsman for his second wedding with Hailey and now I’m asking him to be a groomsman at my wedding. He’s considered a best friend of mine. And anyone who has a problem with him has a problem with me. I look out for mines. I keep mine safe.

“I’d be honored,” he repeated what I said to him earlier.

We ate jambalaya that was made with fresh crab bought from the fish market. We talked and laughed with each other. We gossiped about the celebrities we hated and the ones we liked.

Justin and Hailey helped Kiera with her lines for her audition long enough for the chef on board to cook up a fresh apple crisp topped with homemade caramel ice cream. She’s pretty much mastered the pilot episode by each line.

We ate dessert and swam in the cold salty water enjoying the sunset from above us. We’ve spent so much laughing and having a great time, I forgot that I was thinking about quitting the FBI.

I love helping people when I can. I love being able to use my skills to save lives and make a difference in the world like Kiera. But it’s just not it for me. I don’t get the thrill I used to get when I played football or when I would secretly volunteer at the hometowns boarding and daycare kennel.

I forgot I even volunteered there until now, all because I’ve been dreading talking to Kiera about it. The longer I put it off, the more painful and weird memories pop into my head.

The guilt is eating me alive. But Kiera honestly scares me when she’s angry. Plus, she’s pregnant. I can only imagine how much worse the hormones are going to be the second time around.

With her wanting to go back to work and starting a popular television series, it’d be good for me to be home with the kids.

I can work from home if I decide to open my own business. I have enough money saved up to open a kennel of my own in Alaska and start boarding for sled dogs.

Not only have I always wanted to take Kiera and Kelia to Alaska to see the Northern Lights. I don’t care if I’d have to stay there for a little bit before I hire the right crew enabling me to come home. I’ve always wanted to start my own daycare shelter.

Sled dogs are so different than normal dogs. Don’t get me wrong, I love Duma with all my heart. But each sled dog is unique in it’s own way, yet they run in packs.

She’ll understand. Right?

We exited the water and sat under the full moonlight. We laid on the deck and dried off in the cool air with the firepit lit in the center of the floor. “Who do you think will be playing Ricky or Ben?” Hailey asked Kiera staring at the bright stars in the dark sky.

“I don’t know,” Kiera giggled. “I meet with the showrunner tomorrow morning at nine and we’re starting the pilot episode right after I audition.”

Kiera looks so beautiful. I had no choice but to take pictures of her. She may not want anyone to know about her pregnancy, but I can still take pictures for myself. I’d love to put some funny ones in the baby’s baby book.

“Huh, they didn’t tell you anything about it?”

“Ha!” Kiera emphasized, “Jackie told me nothing. I just know that I was specifically requested for the show relating to my past.”

“That doesn’t piss you off; people always referring to your past?” Justin butted into the conversation returning in a pair of shorts and no shirt.

“Oh no, it does. I live with it every day of my life. I always have people reminding me that I got pregnant at fifteen. But, Kelia and Matty are a blessing. And I have you guys, too. I just surround my mind around brighter thoughts than the dark.” I wonder where this is coming from. Just a few days ago she was crying because her piece of shit dad has cancer.

Chill, Matty. I love Kiera too much to tell her how I honestly feel about her parents.

“So, you just move on? Ignore the fact that everyone else is living in your past?” Kiera nodded, agreeing with him.

“I know I’m a good mom, I’m going to be a great wife, and I’m a loyal friend. That’s all that matters to me.” she quoted one of Justin’s oldest songs.

“Enough of this sad talk, I’d like to say something.” Justin stood up from one of the lounge beds and grabbed Hailey’s hand romantically pulling her up to kiss him.

“Babe, come here.” I motioned for Kiera to sit with me on my lounge bed while I recorded the event for Justin. Kiera sat on my lap and looked at me in confusion.

Justin took a large sip of wine and set his glass down on a side table. He got down on one knee, “Hailey Rhode Bieber, I’ve spent eight years of my life getting to know you and learning to love you a new way everyday. Through the easy and hard challenges, we’ve pulled through it all.”

“Justin, I-,” Hailey cupped her hands around her mouth and I could see the barrier of tears ready to break through the dam.

“You helped me realize that when I felt most lonely, you would always be there no matter how far I went into the dark place. You’ve helped me realize that if it’s not you, it’s not anyone. You make me feel so whole; so holy. You remind me every morning when I wake up to your beautiful face, that you’re one less lonely girl in this world because I intend to love you for more than ten thousand hours. I honor to love you more and more every day of our lives until the end of our lives. You’ve shown not only me but the world that you’re confident in your shoes and it drives me crazy how you wear it proudly. My only intentions are to love you and cherish every second of the rest of our lives. I know that no matter where I’m at in my life, you’re available. I know this is cheesy and it took me nearly forty-eight hours to perfect this speech.” Hailey fell to her knees in front of his and pressed her lips to his allowing her tears to fall.

“Is he-,” Kiera started to whisper something to me.

“Will you do me the honor of marrying me . . . again?” he chuckled while kissing her in between each word.

She nodded while kissing him and smiling, “Yes.”

I’m glad I was here to experience what I just witnessed. I may not have been at the first proposal or the first wedding, but I intend to help this man have the best second wedding one could have. They deserve it, to say the least. With all the hatred they used to receive and not having time for each other lately, it could lead them to a bad place that I don’t want to see them go to. So, I’m going to watch his kids for a few days to give them that. It’s the least I could do.

“Did you know?” Kiera jabbed me in the ribcage with her elbow whispering to me.

I ended the video, “I had an idea.” we ignored Justin and Hailey to give them their moment. “Yeah, he told me when we talked upstairs.”

“That’s sweet,” she stared at them kissing and smiling in each other’s brace.

“Kiera, I want you to have the best wedding of your life. I want you to get the wedding you deserve, so whatever you want don’t hesitate to ask for.” I wrapped my arm around Kiera’s shoulders and rubbed her arm while kissing the side of her head.

“I don’t care what we do, as long as I get to walk down the aisle and say I do.” she kissed my shoulder. “I love you, babe.”

“I love you, more.” I kissed her.

We finished the night off with a toast. Kiera and I are both a bridesmaid and groomsman and we were witnesses to their second engagement. I couldn’t have planned for a better night, Justin just added a little spice to it.

But the proposal finished the night on a good note. Kiera and I drove him going over wedding ideas that we’ve already spent hours talking about. I want her to have whatever she wants, she doesn’t have to run anything by me. I’m going to agree with whatever she wants without any objection.

What really made the proposal special was his reference to all his hit songs. Every fan’s favorite song he’s ever written.

“Hey, baby?” I called for Kiera to join me in bed.

“Hold on,” Kiera walked out of the bathroom with a towel wrapped around her head and a quetip stuffed in her ear in her white fishnet robe and a matching bra and my boxer briefs. “I’m making myself a cup of decaf tea, you want some before bed?”

“No, thank you.” I smiled at her.

I’m not prepared at all to pitch my idea to her at all. I haven’t practiced what I’m going to say. I’m not going to be able to ever perfect a speech to tell her I want to quit my job to open a dog kennel . . . in Alaska.

Kiera returned minutes later with a white mug in her hand and Duma followed her into the room jumping onto the end of the bed. “Did you have fun today?” I opened Kiera’s laptop and I typed in the google URL.

“Tons, thank you for everything.” she kissed me on the cheek after setting down the hot mug on the nightstand on her side of the bed and she covered herself with the comforter. “You okay?”

“Yeah, we should talk,” I said awkwardly closing the computer screen to only allow little to no light in the room.

“Oh?” I could see that she looked at me with concern. I heard it in her voice.

“I don’t want to work for the FBI anymore.”

“Well, I figured as much seems how you went on without telling me that you weren’t ready to go on trips.” I saw her smile from the light on the computer screen.

“Right, but I want to quit all together. I enjoy helping people, I do, but it’s just not it for me. I want to be home with my family and not have to worry about being mandated to leave the state again.”

She thought to herself for a few seconds, then grabbed my hand and placed it on her heart, “Whatever you want to do, I’ll support you no matter what.”

“Really? No yelling or disappointment?”

“From the sounds of it, you already know what is and isn’t it. So, tell me, babe, what do you want to do next?”

I lightly kissed her on the lips, “This may sound bizarre but I want to open a kennel for sled dogs in Alaska.”

“Alaska?” she pulled away from me quickly in disbelief about what I said. There it is. The scary look I was terrified to see. She’s so angry. Her breathing has increased on intake and she started shaking her leg trying to control the anger but she was doing such a poor job at it. “You expect me to drop this show after you convinced me to take the job, just to fly our daughter out to Alaska for a job you may or may not like in the long run? I don’t mean to sound like a bitch, Matty. But have you even thought about this logically?”

Yep. There is it. Such a wonderful night is going to go down the drain because I opened my mouth.

“For fucks sake, Kiera.” I mumbled under my breath, “We can’t talk about something without you getting all rude and defensive.”

Her jaw dropped by what I said and she shook her head, “Fine, talk.” she crossed her arms over her chest and scooched away from me as far as possible without falling off the bed.

“I’ve already talked with a realtor and found a property up for sale, I have the funds saved up to buy it myself. I’ve also already spoken with a contractor and created the blueprints. They’re just waiting on my approval to start expediting the plan. There’s no reason to leave or quit a damn job until I need to attend the inspection and to hire to train staff.” I kind of feel bad for snipping at her the way I did. But I’m sick of her getting so defensive and rude so quickly. I know she’s pregnant but it’s no excuse to treat me like that when I do everything for her and our children.

“So, you won’t be leaving?”

“It’s fucking Alaska, it’s going to take a bit for us to build the place up. At most, we’d take a vacation and we would spend a week there for me to train new employees and get it up and running.”

“Why does it need to be in Alaska?”

“Well,” I didn’t expect her to calm down so quickly. She’s so emotional, it’s so much baggage to hold on to. But I am the reason she’s pregnant again even though I believe she wanted to wait longer. “I want to build a kennel for sled dogs.”

“Like, feeding them raw meat and shit?” she scooched an inch closer to me on the bed warming up to me.

“I guess?” I chuckled at her statement. “I forgot how fun it was to work at the kennel back home. I forgot how much I missed it. And Alaskan sled dogs have always fascinated me.”

“We can talk about this more in the morning, I’m not objecting to it but we should definitely talk about it.” she rolled over facing her back to me staring at the TV.

I lowered myself onto my back and fluffed up my pillow to watch Secret Life with Kiera before we fall asleep. “Night, baby.”

“Excuse me, why is your penis not resting on my ass?” she looked over her shoulder in disappointment. “You have one job.”

“Baby,” I laughed hysterically at her statement, “We just had a fight. You never let me touch you right after a fight.” the hormones are out of this roof. I never know which Kiera I’m going to be speaking to. I love it. I love her. I love all seven of her personalities.

“Uh-uh. I don’t want to hear it.” she snapped her finger in the air and pointed at her ass.

I laughed while moving close to her body and hugging her from behind tightly. I rubbed my hand on her small baby bump and I kissed the back of her head, “Goodnight, mi amor.”

“And no, we didn’t just have a fight.” she turned her head around to kiss me, “I love you.”

“And, I, you.” I playfully pecked her on the lips repeatedly causing her to laugh from being tickled. “Come on, let’s get some shut-eye. You and Selena have a long day ahead of you.”
