Chapter 39 [Part 1]
I’m so happy and relieved that Jack doesn’t hate me after all and still loves me. I was really expecting him to tell me to leave but he surprised me. I should have known that he didn’t mean the words he said to me but I was thinking the worse, I couldn’t see anything else. If only I had stayed at the hotel and not listened to Dad, we would have made up when Jack returned. None of this would have happened but it wasn’t meant to be and Dad wasn’t to know or he wouldn’t have made me come over here now to make things up with Jack. If he’d have told me that he meant what he said in Majorca and didn’t want to be with me anymore then I wouldn’t have accepted it. I would have faught for him because I love him and can’t imagine being without him ever again. I would have made him see I was sorry and woudn’t stop showing him how much I loved him until he took me back. Thankfully I didn’t have to but what David said is worrying me. Something isn’t right. When I asked if everything is alright, he refused to tell me.
“Is everything alright?” I asked worriedly once our kiss was over. “Your Dad gave me the impression that something was up but he wouldn’t say what. Did something happen?”
Jack gulped and I could tell he was thinking about something but what?
“Jack?” I raised an eyebrow when Jack didn’t answer, it made me worry more. I need to know what is going on for peace of mind and I have a right to know. I know I lied to Jack about my reasons for marrying him but he knows everything now. I regret not telling him sooner than when I did, there should be no lies from either of us from now on. “You’re worrying me now, what happened?”
Jack looked into my watery anxious looking eyes before nodding his head. Then he told me everything and I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. When Jack realised I had left the hotel, he gave up thinking he’d lost me for good and turned to booze which nearly got him killed. David made him move in with him so he could keep an eye on him and make sure he never touched a drink again. I can’t believe Jack would do that. He nearly lost his life and it was all because of me. I drove him to it, I am the reason. I nearly killed my husband.
“What?” I questioned when Jack had finished telling me what had happened and I had processed everything in my head. “What the hell were you thinking?”
