I woke up feeling fussy, I instantly check myself, my tummy to be particular caressing it, of course I am in the hospital and I want to know if my baby is okay, when I see no one inside the room I slowly help myself for a sitting position then Ruby came in with someone following her …. I was suddenly taken aback, what is Michael doing here? He was smiling while he walks towards me.
“How are you feeling Gia?” He sat down on the bed in front me.
“What are you doing here?” instead, I asked.
“I am so worried about you, I looked for you everywhere Gia.”
“And how did you know that I’m here?”
“That’s not what important now, I have a proposal for you.” I frowned on his statement. I looked at Ruby’s direction and gave her a sign to leave us for a while. She nodded and went out of the room.
“What do you want Michael?”
“Marry me.” He quickly said without hesitations.
“Marry me and I’ll be the best father.” He said putting his hand on my tummy. “You know how much I love you Gia, forget Jayden, he is not the best for you. He is just using you from the beginning.” He added, I removed his hand from my tummy, I appreciate him being good to me all the time but with his words, I got irritated. And who does he think is the best for me?
“Michael.” I uttered but he interrupted me.
“I have given you so many time Gia… And I don’t think I can wait any longer, we will live quietly, and I will give up my career and everything if that’s what you want. I’ll do everything for you.” He continue but his eyes are dark and I couldn’t seem to read what is on his mind. He’s like an obsessive person who is very keen to get what he wanted.
What am I going to do? It’s like different Michael is in front of me now. The way he’s acting and speaks to me. I felt slight apprehension and fear, it looks like Michael is planning something else. I also don’t understand why I feel nervous all of a sudden. I never felt this way before whenever I am with him. I know he can’t hurt me but this time I have a feeling that is not safe to be with him. I cleared my lump throat and started to say something when he cupped my face with his large hands. I was shocked with his sudden action and looked at him with panic. He might sense my distress so his reaction suddenly change into calm mood.
“I will never hurt you, just agree to be with me.”
“Michael please, let me go.” I said and tried to get rid of his hands on my face but he tightened and pressed the fit of it even more. I could feel my heart rumbling in nervousness. He was about to kiss me, I was struggling and couldn’t move because of my situation, I called out Ruby for help, and because I put away my head to avoid his lips to mine, he grabbed the opportunity to ravish my neck, my eyes started to water.
“Michael please.” I pleaded, but he didn’t bother to listen. He was enjoying what he was doing to me. Kissing my neck, I feel disgusted, I don’t have enough strength to stop him. I didn’t know Michael has this kind of personality, when all I knew he was gentle, I have never imagine him doing things like this to me. Tears are now flowing down my cheeks. I called out Ruby again when someone from behind grabbed Michael and punched him on the face.
“You fucking asshole!” Shouted the man, I couldn’t see him well because of my dim eyes due to my tears but his voice is familiar I am sure. He kept on shouting and punching Michael on his face.
“You have no shame you fucking maniac. This will be the last time you will touch Gia, I will make sure you will rot in jail.” He said while continue punching Michael with no resistance. Then I saw Zac, Janna and Candice running towards me, they hugged me tight and I sobbed.
“Shss, it’s okay, you’re safe now.” Janna said while checking up on me.
“Where the hell is Ruby?” Zac yelled and I am sure he’s furious. Candice is patting my back. I am glad all my friends are here. I feel relieved. Then another men came in Jason, Jayden’s bodyguard and some police officers, to arrest Michael James. I don’t understand what is going on. When everything is clear to me my gaze move to Jayden. We were staring at each other for a long time, when Zac cleared his throat and said.
“Guys we will leave you for a while.” I looked at them all, Janna and Candice nodded at me and together with Zac they disappear in the room.
Jayden walked towards and sit on the bed beside me. Our eyes still locked on each other. He caressed my cheek with his hand and I close my eyes to feel it, I miss this, I miss his touch, a tear started to fall again. He wiped it and hugged me. He hugged me tightly like he never wanted to lose me again.
“I am sorry.” He said and with that, I burst into tears. He caressed my back and kissed me on my forehead.
“Stop crying Barbie, it’s not good for our baby.” He continue comforting me while I continue sobbing. I feel safe with him, I feel complete and happy. Now I know, I can’t live without him. I need Jayden, he is my life and my protector. I regret that I got away from him for a month. It is not that he did really something bad to me. I didn’t even let him explain his side. I am just afraid that all the love he showed me was just a lie either and that I am so frightened to accept. The truth is, I didn’t mind nor didn’t care if he keeps a lot of secrets from me, yes I was angry at first, I felt betrayed, I was shocked and even surprised with all their revelations, and yet it couldn’t match the happiness I felt when I found out that Liam and Jayden are the same person I fell in love with.
I realized it all when I decided to go away from him, when I settled here in this island of Bahamas, it’s been a month and I can’t be alone without him, without seeing him. It’s like I am going crazy thinking of him all the time. And that made me stress and affects my little one inside me.
I so love Jayden so much, that what I am afraid to find out was if he really just use me like what Michael was insisting at the first place. I don’t really care if he wants to take away all the wealth of my father, all I want is him, his true love for me and a father to my incoming baby.
Yet, everything was explained to me by Jayden. He told me he wanted to start our relationship again with no more secrets. He wanted to explain everything that had happened from the beginning.
I learned the truth about my parent’s death, but it was not Uncle Jaime who was the reason of their early exit in this world. It was his enemy, business rivalry. It just so happened that when Uncle Jaime’s enemies attacked him, my parents were there, so all the people that was close to him was included in the assassination plan, if Jayden and I were there, we’d probably both be dead too. And since they didn’t succeed in getting all Uncle Jaime’s wealth, what they planned to take was my father’s properties and assets. And that’s what Jayden did for me, to get back all the wealth that is supposed to be mine. And make sure my safety is the priority. That was what Uncle Jaime’s order to Jayden before he had a comma. To give back all the things that was lost, to give me a good life and above all to bring me away to the enemies and be safe at all times. That’s why he has decided to not show himself from me for six years, though he was there for me and watching my safety all along.
Jayden also explained to me why my father’s properties and wealth is named after him, it was so that the enemy could not trace me, but now that all of them were imprisoned and the battle between their family is over, that I am safe from them, we are all safe, Jayden showed me the documents stating all my father’s wealth are all returned everything under my name. But like I said before, I don’t need it. I have more than enough. He did everything and hide it all from me, for my own sake and that also explains about the side of Margaret, they were all protecting me.
All is clear to me now, I apologized for my sudden action, for what I did and not giving Jayden a chance to talk to me.
Whatever that made me angry was when Jayden told me about Michael’s plan. It was all his plan from the beginning when he approached me twice in the parking lot back in New York, I was so stupid not to think and imagine that Michael did it all just to discredit Jayden from me. And Jayden had to investigate all Michael’s doing and when he found out that he has plan to come after me and get me away from them, he waited this very chance to trap him. He has evidence of some sort of records that Michael was talking to his men about the plan of kidnapping me and immediately Jayden made an alliance with NYPD and to the police here in Bahamas.
Jayden knew from the beginning that I was staying here in this island but he said that he gave me time to be alone, but when he found out that I am pregnant, he could not resist on following me. Till this incident happened.
We were cuddling and making out, I am so happy and I couldn’t compare this feeling. It feels like the stress I was having for a month, was snap away that easily when I am with Jayden’s arms. Then he muttered.
“I miss you so much. The moment I laid my eyes on you when we were in Italy, I knew that you were the one that I wanted to be with for the rest of my life. You are mine and I love you….. I love you Gianna Moretti.” He said with so much affection and I could feel all the love and longing from his eyes. I so damn miss this man too. I will never leave him. I cupped his face and said.
“I love you too…. So much….”
