Chapter 17

I sighed as I pulled into the driveway of the house. Visiting Caleb at work for lunch had become a habit. Even though I was still confused about us, it didn’t stop me from wanting him. Mother was supposed to come back tomorrow or Sunday, and I was dreading it. I feared that if she came back, Caleb would choose her over me.

I had a strong feeling he would choose her, but it didn’t hurt to imagine he would pick me. I knew these imaginations will get me hurt, in the end, but it just didn’t matter, right now. Caleb let me drive his Range Rover back to the house today, he had to stay a bit longer, for a late meeting. I just couldn’t stay another hour there; it was way too boring for me.

As I turned the car off, I opened the door and jumped out of it, and closed the door behind me. I started playing with the keys as I made my way towards the front door. Unlocking it and stepping inside, I hummed a music tone. I started spinning, thinking that I was in a movie play when suddenly I heard skin clapping against, skin. I frowned as I walked towards the living room and stopped in my tracks when I saw my mom and another man on top of her.

I gasped at the unforgettable image in front of me. “What the fuck?!” I scream and the guy quickly got up and my eyes widen in pure surprise. “Trevor?!” I scream making his eyes widen as he quickly grabbed a pillow and held it over his dick, hiding it. Thank god, because I so didn’t want to see what I wasn’t missing. I scrunched my face up in disgust as I made a mental reminder to go buy a new pillow. Disgusting.

“Anna, I-” I scoffed at his apologetic tone.

“Get the fuck out, you nasty shit!” I scream and he quickly gathered his clothes and slipped his boxers on and leaves. I look over to see my mom just lying on the couch with a blanket covering her as she looks down at her nails. What the fuck is wrong with her?! “What the fuck mom?!” I yelled, she has the nerve to scoff at me as if I was the one who just got caught cheating.

I watched in disgust as she slowly got up, keeping the blanket around her. “So, this is what you’ve been doing? Not only have you been cheating on Caleb, but you’ve been going around and fucking my ex? You’re such a fucking slut!” I spit out and watched as she laughed.

“Caleb never gives me enough dick. I always have to beg him to fuck. And Trevor, well he’s hot as fuck. I can’t believe you broke up with him.” She smirked and stared at me. I looked at her, she’s not my mother. What the fuck is wrong with her?

“Have you been doing drugs again?” I asked and took a step closer. She scoffed and turned her back on me. I watched as she bends down and picked her clothes up. She let the cover fall on the ground as I looked away and bite on my lip. When in god’s name did, she come back?

“It’s none of your business of what I do.” She said after a while. I looked back at her and I truly felt sorry for this pathetic human being that I get to, unfortunately, call my mother.

“Right...” I trailed off. “I guess, I’m not allowed to tell Caleb then?” I asked, even though I was going to tell him either way. She quickly spun around and glared at me.

“No, you can’t tell him. Because if you do, I will just deny it anyway,” she smiled, “and I’m pretty sure he’ll believe me over you.” She says and flips her hair over her shoulder. She walked out of the living room and into hers and Caleb’s room.

There was no way that I wasn’t going to tell him, I stared at the couch in pure disgust before I turned around and made my way towards the stairs as I tried to get the image of Trevor and my mom out of my head but I knew it would be stuck with me forever.

Before I made it all the way upstairs, she comes strutting out of their room with a pair of shorts and a tank top on. I paused and watched as she walked towards the front door. “I’m leaving!” She called over her shoulder, I didn’t say anything back, I just walked up to my room and sat on my bed.

With my phone in hand, I tried to figure out if, I should text him or not. Would he believe me? Or would he just think, that I’m doing it to separate them? I’ll just wait until he gets home and seeS how he acts around her. I set my phone on the nightstand and laid down. Maybe I can sleep it off and hopefully he’ll be here by the time I wake up.

Caleb Pierce

I checked my phone for the hundredth time to see if Belle had texted me. She never told me if she had arrived home safely. It worried me but, I was going to be home at any moment. I decided to call her anyway to see where she was, the worry was eating me alive. The phone call rang, but she never responded making me curse.

“What’s wrong?” Christian asked and took his eyes off the road for a few seconds before staring straight ahead again.

“Nothing, just Belle.” I stated and sighed removing my glasses. I could feel his eyes on me making me clench my jaw. I was dying to just punch him; he’s been talking about her the entire ride. A thirty-minute drive has never felt this long before.

“Caleb.” He stated making me sigh and turn towards him.

“Yes, Mr. King?” I asked making him chuckle.

“Have you been fucking, your girlfriend’s daughter?” He smirked making me clench my jaw.

“Dude, what the fuck? Of course, not!” Granted my exaggeration gave me away but he only nodded and chuckled.

“Whatever you say, buddy.” He laughed. Five minutes later, I smiled when I saw my house come to view. I thanked Christian as he pulled over in front of the house. As I opened the door ready to get off the car his voice stopped me.

“So, you wouldn’t mind if I asked her out on a date, right?” I heard his smirk before I saw his face. I growled as I grabbed his shirt and pulled him over the seat towards me.

“I will fuck your face up if you even dare stare at her one more time!” I snapped, I confusedly stared at him slowly letting him go when he started laughing. I closed my eyes and clenched my jaw before I laughed when I realized his intention.

“You son, of a bitch.” I laughed and stared at him.

“We should hang out tonight.” He suggested making me nod. “I mean as in, you, her and I.” he raised his eyebrows. I eyed him with a clenched jaw. “Damn, dude not like that!” He gasped and placed his hand over his heart in mock hurt.

I punched his shoulder making him wince which caused me to roll my eyes at him. “I’ll call you later then.” I stated as we fist-bumped and I got out of the car. He waved as he pulled out of the driveway. I strode towards the front door, quickly opening the door to see if she was in the house, it’s unlike her to not let me know if she’d arrived home. I was getting worried, for her and myself.

I didn’t know what I was doing, I was definitely starting to get feelings for her, Violet is a beautiful woman, but it’s just not the same anymore. Our relationship went sideways when she started going out more so than she was home. I had a feeling she might be cheating but I just couldn’t believe it until I saw her actually doing it.

As for Belle, she made me feel like a totally different person, she pissed me off most of the time, but somehow that made me want her even more. I know she might be a bit young for me, but the heart wants what it wants, right?

The best part about waking up in the morning, other than by her side, was knowing that at lunch hour she would come into my office ready to go to lunch with me. That rarely happened since all we did was fuck but I still appreciated it. Violet never did that, heck no one at work knew I was dating someone. That’s why it didn’t bother me whenever Belle came over even if my employees heard her screaming out my name I didn’t care.

I closed the door behind me once I entered, “Belle!” I called as I walked towards the kitchen to check if she was there. When I found no sign of her on the first floor, I took the stairs towards her room as I shouted her name once again.

I was getting anxious, what if something did happen to her? Sure, my car was parked in the driveway but what if she lost consciousness or something. I fastened my pace as I harshly opened the door. “Belle, I swear to go-” I shut up once I saw her soundly sleeping on her bed. I let out a relieved sigh as I walked near her bed and sat on it removing the hair from her eyes.

“God damn it, Belle. You scared the shit out of me, baby.” I whispered as I admired her beautiful face. Her skin looked flawless, her beautiful eyebrows perfectly shaped and her lips invited me in for a kiss every time I stared at them.

I started removing my suit, my pants following soon after. I unbuttoned my shirt before throwing it on her desk chair. Standing at the foot of her bed only in my boxer briefs as I admired her, I realized that I would do anything for this girl.

For some reason, I couldn’t wait till Violet was back, but I didn’t know if I could tell her that I will be leaving her for her daughter. How would she react? Would she try and call the cops on me? Even if she did, Annabelle is a mature woman, sure she acts like a kid sometimes, but she’s mature enough to make her own decisions. Why, am I thinking like this?

I was brought out of my thoughts when Belle stirred in her sleep and turned towards me snuggling herself closer to me. I tightened my hold around her pulling her even closer. “Caleb?” She mumbled as a yawn escaped her mouth, I looked down at her and smiled when I saw the way she was staring at me. She looked confused and lost like she didn’t know what was going on.

“Good evening darling.” I greeted making her blinked a few times before her eyes focused on my face, she smiled in a haze snuggling closer as she mumbled words under her breath.

I watched as she softly breathed in and out while keeping her head on my chest. “What time is it?” She suddenly questioned. I stretched my hand towards the bedside table and grabbed my phone as I pressed the home button.

“7:48 pm,” I replied placing my phone back. She sat up and looked at me with a sleepy smile.

“Have I been sleeping only for one hour?” She chuckled and shook her head. “I feel like I’ve been asleep for ten years!” She laughed before laying down beside me. “God, I feel so tired.” She sighed making me turn on my side and stated at her. “Why are you looking at me like that?” She asked raising her eyebrows at me.

I shrugged and smiled removing a hair out of her forehead. “You are just so...” I trailed off not knowing how to express that she looked so cute with her puffy red eyes and that small smile that won’t leave her face.

“I swear if you say, like a kid. I’m going to punch the shit out of you!” She glared making me burst out laughing. She stared at me as I laughed.

“Baby, why would you think that I’d say that?” I groaned and rolled on top of her. I placed a kiss on her left cheek then her right cheek. “You are gorgeous.” I said as I kiss all over her face. She started laughing as her hands landed on my chest trying to push me off her.

“Stop!” She giggles as I continued kissing her, I trailed down towards her neck making her giggles turn into soft quiet moans. “Caleb,” I just loved the way she moaned out my name, it rarely happened because also she could get out of her mouth were screams but whenever she moaned my name, it just drove me nuts.

Her hands wrapped around my waist as she pulled me closer. “C-Caleb, there’s something I need to tell you.” She stuttered when I sat up and pulled her with me starting to remove her shirt.

“What?” I questioned as I threw the shirt behind me. She stood in front of me only in her white laced bra. She started talking but all I could focus on was how much I was dying to taste her.

Placing my lips on hers, I helped her lay down. “Caleb, are you listening to me?” I heard her ask as she placed her hands against my chest pushing me away.

“No, sorry. Wasn’t listening.” I sighed and pulled away, “What’s wrong?” I asked and sat beside her.

“What I’ve been trying to tell you, is that-” Her sentence got cut off as the front door downstairs opened.

“Annabelle! Come help me!” Violet’s voice danced around the house. I turned towards Belle and saw her sheepishly smiling.

“Mom’s back.” She rolled her eyes and sat up grabbing her shirt to put it on. Once, she had it on she made her way out of her room and downstairs. I groaned as I fell back on the bed. God, why now?!
