Chapter 20

I was listening to this song "Love is gone" while writing this chapter, it was inspiring but sorrowful.

Kelvin

Oh God.

My heart sky rocketed out of my chest. I got up quickly but before I could move a step forward, he started walking away. I ran towards the door, following him not caring about Leonard who was yelling my name. What had I done.

"Kelvin"

He ignored me, walking away fast.

"Kelvin please wait"

"Why?" He yelled turning around so fast I almost collided into him.

"You... " he struggled to say the words out, "you kissed him! Is that what you've been doing?" He barked at me.

"No" tears were running furiously down my cheeks. "I can explain"

"No" he shouted "I don't want to hear it, its over, there's nothing between us anymore" he looked away, fisting his hands in the air like he was about to punch something or someone. My best shattered at his rage. When he looked at me, I could see the fury in his eyes and it scared me.

"Kelvin i'm sorry" he suddenly grabbed my arm, so tight it hurt.

"I don't want to ever see you again" he said in my face before releasing my hand and walking away. My heart shrunk inside my chest repeatedly. My tears ceased for a minute and I slowly collapsed to the floor, his voice echoing in my head.

I don't want to ever see you again

What have I done? I have lost him. No. It cant be. Our whole life together flashed before my eyes. The first time we met, the first time we kissed, the first time I said the words 'I love you', our dates, our strolls, everything.

The next set of tears that rolled down my cheeks were hot and painful, that I had to struggle to breath.

"Eva" Clara rushed to me on the floor. I was full on sobbing, my voice loud enough for Leonard to hear me, but I was thankful he didn't come out.

"Eva" Clara pulled me to herself and hugged me tight while I continued sobbing on her shoulder.

"I lost him" my voice broke again and again "I lost him Clara" the reality now was so much painful than the first time he left me. Why did it feel like this was it? That I'd never see him again.

"I have to go see him" I was about getting up when she held me back down.

"No Eva, that's a bad idea"

"But I have to see him" at that point, I was literally hyperventilating, "I can't loose him"

"Eva you are heavily pregnant"

"I don't care"

"Eva listen to me" she cupped my jaw to make me look at her, "you will see him, but give him some time. Maybe after you give birth"

"What? That's still one month away"

"Eva, he is furious right now, he just saw you kiss the man you are carrying a baby for" my squeezed at her words "give him some time" I couldn't help but regret not listening to Clara the first time she told me about Leonard having feelings for me, now it was too late.

After moments of Clara's soothing hug, I calmed down a little and she helped me back inside the house. Leonard was no were to be found and I was thankful because he was the last person I wanted to see.

Clara tucked me in, and stayed waiting for me to fall asleep, so I had to pretend to sleep so she could leave. I wanted to be alone.

When she finally left, I opened my eyes and stared at the ceiling.

I still couldn't believe I ruined everything, I ruined us. Right from the start of being a surrogate until this point.

I couldn't help the fresh tears that rolled down from the corners of my eyes.

I woke up with a terrible headache the next morning and eyes hurt badly. Clara brought in breakfast as usual, but I didn't eat it, I just poured it in the waste basket in my room because I didn't want a lecture from her.

I did the same to lunch and dinner when she brought it up to my room.

I didn't want to leave my room, neither did I want to eat anything.

All I was thinking about was how to go see kelvin and fix what I'd broken.

While calculating my plans, I heard voices downstairs. I wanted to think it could be kelvin but I know it couldn't be. I didn't want to see Leonard.

But then again, according to him, he didn't have much time to live, it would be wicked for me to deprive him of what is his. I sighed when their voices we're becoming louder, I got up and slowly and quietly walk downstairs.

"I need to see her" Leonard argued

"You can't see her Mr Leonard, you have done enough" I was shocked how bold she was talking to her boss that way, all for me.

"But she... " he paused when they both saw me walk down the stairs.

"Eva" Clara looked at me worried

"Its okay, I'm fine" she nodded and left us. Leonard was staring at me and deep down I didn't have anything to say to him.

"Why didn't you tell me you had a boyfriend" I didn't want to be pissed but his question threw me off.

"I didn't owe you anything, you didn't tell me anything about yourself so why should I have told you"

"This was important"

"How so?" He opened his mouth but nothing came out.

"You expected me to just come out of nowhere and tell you 'oh I have a boyfriend' is that it" I said angrily.

"You could have just said something Eva"

"Ofcourse, because I knew you were going to fall in love with me, right" he was silent.

"You shouldn't come here again" tears welled up in my eyes.

"Eva" I raised my hand to stop him

"I'm not going to deprive you from being with your child, so you are allowed to take me to doctors appointment"

"That's all" he surprised me by asking

"What else do you want" I shouted

"I want to be with my baby for the remaining days of the pregnancy" he shouted back

"I'm afraid you can't" I simply said "you should stick to your damn contract"

He took two steps forward "I'm afraid thats in the damn contract" I stared at him dumbfounded.

"Just let me spend my last days with you, you have nothing to loose, after I'm gone you can go back to your boyfriend" my eyes widened in shock.

What?

"Eva I love you" I had to move away from him because he was being delusional.

"Are you crazy!"

"I dont have much time to live"

I couldn't believe what he was saying. Was he asking me to cheat on my boyfriend just because he was going to die soon.

No I couldn't stand to listen to such madness, so I walked out of the house ignoring him call after me.

For some reason he didn't follow me and again I was thankful. My legs moved on their own and in less than a hour, I found myself in front of Kelvin's door.

I didn't plan for it but there I was, waiting for him to open the door.
