Chapter 51 - Michael
3 weeks later… we found out that Anastasia’s pregnant with my baby, I’m still speechless and I see Anastasia is laying down on our bed and relaxing.
I walk into our bedroom as I smile softly and I say, “Hey babe.”
“Hey sweetie.” Anastasia sits up from our bed and she says, “I have been thinking deeper and harder about NYC.”
“Okay…” I raise my eyebrows in confusion and nervousness as I walk toward our bed where Anastasia sits and I ask in a curious voice, “What do you think?”
“Honestly… I’m thinking we should go to NYC.” Anastasia looks at me with an honest look and she says, “I don’t want you to give up on your dream.”
“Really?” I look at Anastasia with a shocked look and I ask in a curious voice, “Are you really sure about it babe?”
Anastasia sighs deeply as she nodded and she says, “Yes, I’m sure.”
“Okay…” I smile softly and I ask in a curious voice, “How would you, your friends, and our families feel about moving to NYC?”
“I’m nervous, I mean I don’t know what my family or our friends think about moving to NYC.” Anastasia sighs deeply as she sits up on our bed.
“I understand babe, but do you feel like you want to move?” I raise my eyebrows in confusion and I see Anastasia sighs deeply.
“I feel like I want to move to NYC to get away from VA for good because Henry hurt, raped, abused me, triggered me too much.” Anastasia’s tears fill up on her eyes and she says, “I just don’t want to stuck here forever…”
“Okay… if it what you want; we can move to NYC.” I see Anastasia nodded slowly and I say, “I guess we will tell everyone.”
“Yup.” Anastasia sighs deeply as she puts her hand on her belly and she says, “I’m excited to be a mom.”
“Me too babe.” I see Anastasia gets up from our bed as I raise my eyebrows in confusion and I ask in a curious voice, “Babe, what’s wrong?”
“Nauseous.” Anastasia runs toward our bathroom and throws up.
I walk toward our bathroom as I see Anastasia keeps throwing up and I walk into our bathroom as I grab Anastasia’s hair gently to get away from her vomit, I rub her back gently and I ask in a curious voice, “You ok babe?”
“No, I’m weak like I have no energy to get up.” Anastasia sighs deeply as she finishes throwing up and she sits back down on our bathroom floor.
“I can grab ginger ale soda and crackers for you, babe.” I see Anastasia nodded and I say, “Come on.” I help her to get up and hold her so she won’t fall and we walk out of our bathroom as we walk toward our bed and I sit her down on our bed and I say, “I’ll be back honey.”
I see Anastasia lays back down on our bed as I walk out of our bedroom and I walk toward the stairs as I see Sophia sits on their family room couch in their family room and I ask in a curious voice, “You ok?”
“Yup, I’m good.” Sophia smiles.
Later that night… Anastasia and I decided to invite everyone to come over to Sophia’s house so we could tell everyone that we are going to move to NYC.
I sigh deeply as I see our families and friends are sitting on their family room couch and I say, “We have to tell you guys some news.”
“Okay…” Mackenzie raises her eyebrow in confusion.
“My new boss is offering me for a new job in NYC.” I smile softly as I see our friends and family look at us with a shocked look and I say, “Ana and I will move there in 2 months.”
“Awww… so I can see you and Michael anytime!” Mackenzie smiles big.
Anastasia nodded as she smiles softly and she says, “Yeah.”
“Are you sure you want to move to NYC?” John raises his eyebrows in confusion as he sees I nodded and he says, “Okay…”
“Too many bad memories here, I want to start to have a good memory in NYC…” Anastasia sighs deeply and she says, “I have been thinking about moving to NYC for 3 weeks and I feel like I’m ready to move somewhere else than here…” Anastasia sees John shakes his head and she says, “Dad, I have to.”
“Why?” John raises his eyebrows in confusion as he sighs deeply and he says, “I want all of my kids to live here.”
“You kidding me, dad?” Anastasia raises her eyebrows angrily and she says, “Henry RAPED, ABUSED, AND KIDNAPPED me!!!” Anastasia shakes her head and she says, “I want to move somewhere where I wouldn’t keep thinking too much about Henry! He hurt me so badly, you know I had been suffering for this for damn months!”
“No… you don’t, dad…” Anastasia lets her tears fill up on her eyes and she says, “Henry did really damaged me… you know that, I had a nightmare every night and I had been crying all the time…” Anastasia sighs deeply and she says, “No, I’m not going to stay here for rest of my damn life.” Anastasia walks away from us.
I sigh deeply as I see John looks at me with an angry look and I say, “I’m sorry but she’s right… you guys can stay here because it’s 6 hours away.”
Sophia sees I look at Sophia with a sad look and she says, “Damon, Kaylee, Alexander, and I would move to NYC.”
“Same with me!” Maddison smiles big.
“Me too.” Dylan smiles.
“Me three.” Adam nodded.
“Me four.” Leah smiles big as she sees Tyler nodded.
“Me five.” Harper nodded in excitement.
“Okay, I think we would live in NYC.” I smile big.
It’s official… we will live in NYC!!
