The next morning, Matthew woke up to Kelly crying. He pulled her into his arms.
“Oh baby,” Matthew said.
“Why did he do this, why does he love her more than his kids, how could he love her after what she’s done, she cheated on him, she assaulted me, and he took her back like nothing happened,” Kelly said.
“I don’t know, baby, but you don’t need to think about it anymore, you have me and my family, you have Paul and Kate, you have Tara and Sarah, you have plenty of people who love you,” Matthew said.
“Don’t ever let me go, I can’t lose you,” Kelly said.
“I will never let you go, you have me forever,” Matthew said.
“Make love to me my husband,” Kelly said.
“With pleasure my wife,” Matthew said. He kissed her deeply as they made love off and on throughout the morning. They laid there after the last time holding each other.
“I love you so much, I wish I could see you and look into your eyes,” Kelly said.
“I love you baby, you will see again, I believe you will,” Matthew said. They began kissing again. They heard the doorbell ring. He groaned and got up and got dressed. He helped her get dressed and he carried her down to the couch and got her settled there. He went to the door and opened it and saw Peter.
“What do you want,” Matthew said.
“I wish to speak to you and Kelly,” Peter said.
“Why, shouldn’t you be with your wife, she’s more important than your children, you love her more right,” Matthew said.
“Matthew please,” Peter said.
“My wife has been upset since last night, I woke up this morning to her crying,” Matthew said.
“Matthew, I would like to see her please,” Peter said. Matthew sighed and let him in and they walked into the living room where Kelly was sitting brushing her hair.
“What do you want, Peter,” Kelly said.
“My daughter back,” Peter said.
“You chose your wife remember,” Kelly said.
“A mistake,” Peter said.
“Really, you realize that,” Kelly said.
“Kelly, I’m sorry about last night, I went home last night and just sat up all night thinking of everything that has happened, I realized that you and your brother and sister are important in my life, you three are my reasons for living,” Peter said.
“Yeah right,” Kelly said.
“It’s true, Kelly, I never wanted you to know but after I found out that your mother cheated on me, with your ex, I felt like I was not good enough, I had thoughts of ending it all, I wondered why I was even on this planet,” Peter said.
“You thought about ending your life?” Kelly asked.
“Yes I did, because what she did destroyed me,” Peter said.
“And yet you called off the divorce and forgave her,” Kelly said.
“I thought I did but it turns out I couldn’t really forgive her, I called David to file new papers, this time I’m not canceling it, I’m not going to do anything to help her,” Peter said.
“What,” Kelly said.
“I’ve not been to visit her since yesterday before I came to your house, I thought about you and how she could such a thing to you, to my baby girl, you, Kate, and Paul are my world, I can’t believe I thought I loved her more than you guys, that was wrong and not true, there is no way I could love anyone more than my daughters and my son, I am so so sorry for everything!” Peter said. He broke down crying.
“Daddy,” Kelly said.
“Oh baby girl I’m so sorry!” Peter said crying. Kelly moved and felt for him and found him and he took her into his arms and hugged her and cried. She rested her head on his chest and cried with him. Matthew smiled as he watched them.
