Andre comes in “Hey baby” Kylie doesn't reply
Christian heads in and sits down “you ok Kylie?”
she nods “I met Adam today.....”
she explains everything that happened with Adam, both men stand not sure what to say. Christian nods “How do you feel about it?”
She shrugs “I don't know, Archie is and always will be my dad, but if there is even a slightest chance that he has been trying to be involved in my life, his missed out on his child, and that breaks my heart.....”
Kylie places Amy in to her bouncer, looking down over her “I could never do that to her.....” she leans down brushing a finger along her tiny hand.
Andre puts his hand on her back and she moves and then looks him dead in the eye “I needed my partners love and support and truth but you let me down again.....”Kylie stands up and heads in to the kitchen making a drink.
Andre comes in behind her “Babe, you was stressed out. Hearing something like that was bound to stress you out, you have been through the shit mill already, I was trying to help!”
“Next time you try helping me by keeping something from me again DONT, we are supposed to be in this together Andre we are supposed to be a team, we are supposed to work together as a team.......”
“we are a team.........”
“No we are not, feels far from it, I need you by my side not against me.....I think we need to take a break Andre”
Andre freeze’s “no baby we can sort this”
“Not right now, I need to concentrate being a good mum for Amy, I don't need to worry every 5 minutes about what you are hiding from me”
He starts to get a little irritated “I DO EVERTYTHING FOR YOU!, ALWAYS FOR YOU ITS NEVER ENOUGH THOUGH IS IT”
Kylie stands shocked “can you not raise you’re voice please just leave”
“FINE YOU KNOW WHAT KYLIE IM DONE FUCK YOU, MAYBE I AM BETTER OFF WITHOUT YOU! I WAS BETTER OFF LEAVING YOU WELL ALONE MAYBE CHRISTIAN WAS RIGHT ALL THIS TIME, I WISH I NEVER CAME LOOKING FOR YOU, I REGRET WHATEVER WE HAD, APART FROM AMY SHE IS THE ONLY GOOD THING TO COME OUT OF THIS GOD FORESAKEN MESS”
Kylie freezes her , her eyes start to water Christian comes in shocked Andre instantly feels guilty “wait”
“show yourself out, you can have Amy over weekends if you like, and if its ok with Christian he can pick her up and drop her off for the time being, you’re free from me Andre, you’re free to have you’re life back guilt free, not to ever worry about me again”
Kylie heads in to the living room, she lifts Amy up and takes her up stairs and goes in to her bedroom shutting the door. She lay Amy in her bassinette and then lays on her bed and just cry's.
Kylie still feels horrendous for everything that went on, Andre had Amy at the weekends as planned, she started gaining a relationship with Adam she will always see Archie as her dad but she still thought he deserved a chance, although tonight she was going for drinks with Hazel to have a bit of a break, Trixie was having Amy for the evening, it had been the first time going out and she couldn't wait she was also hoping to bump in to Andre to talk.
They head off to the bar she used to work at like they did all that time ago they sit down chatting for a bit, after a little while Kylie needs a breather and heads out the back, as she does in the corner where herself and Andre had their first encounter she see’s some brunette against the wall having sex, until she notices who it is with her. She feels the rug pulled from under her again, and her heart shatter “Andre......”
Both of them turn around and Andre looks like a deer caught in the headlights he looked rough as hell she hadn't seen him since she told him to leave as Christian collected Amy and dropped her back, Kylie shakes her head “sorry to intrude”
Kylie heads in and tells Hazel she is going home, Andre is hot on her tail “Kylie wait”
“Please don't Andre, I generally and stupidly thought we could work it out together, I wanted us to be a proper family you me, Amy and Christian, I came here in the hope of seeing you and talking things through, but I can see I was sorely mistaken, and maybe you did actually mean everything you said maybe you was right, I was never good enough for you.......or Christian, but it’s nice to see you moving forward, just be happy yeah” she musters a smile and try's to stop the tears and gets in her car and pulls off.
Kylie gets home in time to put Amy to bed, she goes in giving Amy kisses and then puts her to bed and just watches her little girl curled up asleep, she heads back down stairs and see’s Trixie out as she is about to shut the door Christian appears “Not now please....”
Christian hangs his head “Please can we talk Kylie?”
“What is there to say? you’re dad doesn't have to deal with me anymore right...what you heard him say last time wasn't the first time he said something like that so maybe he meant it...his moved on and maybe Its time I did too”
Christian looks at her confused “no he hasn't Ky his miserable without you, he hasn't been himself lately, he loves you so much”
Kylie cant help but laugh “that's why I just caught him busy like we did with you all that time ago with some brunette”
Christian's mouth drops “wait what!”
“yeah looked pretty cosy to me, his a free man Christian, I’m just sorry I came between you two in the first place, I will always love him, but....” she burst in to tears, “I just hope he finds happiness, he deserves that, I will still bring Amy over for the weekends to see you two of course”
Christian starts getting emotional himself “this cant be it for you guys....”
“I think it is, I mean you were never truly happy with it right, and who the hell could blame you, its all going to be ok Christian I promise”
She hugs him he hugs her back “Maybe I wasn't to start with but you to are made for each other anyone can see that!”
“Clearly not, just make sure his happy and you too Christian, I need to go in, be safe” She backs in shutting the door and heads in to the kitchen trying to catch her breath.
Kylie wakes up the next day and decides she isn't gonna lose control of any of this that she is going to give Amy the best life, she spends the next week putting the house up for sale and buying her new home, making a fresh start for her and Amy.
The day of moving she puts Amy in her walker and starts moving boxes on to the van, as she is about to go inside Andre appears “you’re leaving?!”
Kylie spins round “Yeah fresh start, and don't worry I am not taking Amy away from you its not that far away, you can still have her like normal, but I need to get away from this mess and the bad memories”
Andre stands there Kylie cant help but see how rough he looked, she shrugs it off, and the same feelings she felt from the start but she found the strength not to give in to it. “You can’t leave please Kylie”
“ And I can’t be here anymore......... I can't have the chance of walking in on what I did before, it’s too painful, I clearly meant nothing like you said right, maybe I was fun for you for a while, but I really love you, and I could never have done what you did, I will always love you Andre Quin, you gave me some of the best times of my life best memories and the most precious gift of all, our beautiful baby girl and for that I will forever be grateful” She steps forward she gently puts her hand on to his cheek he closes his eyes leans in to her, “this is one of the hardest things I have ever had to do, and it breaks my heart”
“Then....please......don’t” She tip toes up, and gently gives him an long and lingering kiss, as her tears start, she steps back, taking one last look at him “be safe Andre” she smiles and heads in doors, Andre leaves crying, not knowing what else to do.
A week later, Kylie is getting prepared to take Amy to Andre’s, she packs up her bag and sorts out the car, then starts driving over. She pulls up Christian comes out before she gets the chance to get out. “Kylie do you reckon we could skip this weekend?”
“please....” he looks at her pleading, his clearly trying to avoid her going in
“Stay with Amy” She storms out and in to the house she looks everywhere but cant find him she heads to his bedroom, as she opens the door, she see’s Andre sprawled out drunk and naked next to miss brunette “YOUVE GOT BE FUCKING KIDDING ME!”
Andre jumps up “KYLIE YOU’RE HERE!!!”
“Stay the hell away from me, you’re a fucking coward! YOU FALL IN TO A PIT OF SHIT BECAUSE YOU DONT GET YOU’RE WAY WE HAVE A CHILD YOU ASSHOLE OR HAVE YOU FORGOTTEN HER? YOU CAN HURT ME AS MUCH AS YOU WANT BUT DONT YOU DARE DO THIS TO AMY! GROW A FUCKING SPINE!”
Andre see’s red and slaps her, Kylie freezes, putting her hand to her face “Oh god Kylie I am so sorry” he saw the look of fear in her eyes, what had he done. She doesn’t say anything she turns and runs as she gets in the car
“You keep him away from me and my daughter!”
Christian looks at her “DID HE DO THAT!”
Kylie is in tears “please I don't want him near us until he has sorted his shit out!”
A drunk Andre comes staggering out “Wait KYLIE PLEASE!” Kylie starts her car and leaves.
