Chapter 18

The next day, Jennifer got up and showered and got dressed. Ethan woke up and saw her.

“Baby, where you going?” Ethan asked.

“I have a doctor’s appointment for my shot,” Jennifer said.

“You want to stay on it?” Ethan asked.

“Didn’t you say you wanted me to because you wanted me to yourself and that you don’t share,” Jennifer said.

“I did say that, didn’t I,” Ethan said.

“Yes you did, so what now, you change your mind?” Jennifer asked.

“Well, maybe,” Ethan said.

“Okay so how about this, I do this shot and I won’t go back for another one,” Jennifer said.

“All right, baby, deal,” Ethan said. She smiled and kissed him deeply.

“I’m going to get the shot and go to work for a bit, I’ll see you later,” Jennifer said.

“Baby, how about I be your chauffeur today, I need to go to the club to do paperwork, I can go with you to the doctor and take you to work and go to the club and you can text me when you are ready and I’ll pick you up,” Ethan said.

“Okay, get moving,” Jennifer said. He got up and showered and got dressed and they went to the doctor. She got the shot and they left the office and he took her to the office and walked her up to her office. He kissed her deeply.

“I don’t want to leave you, baby,” Ethan said.

“It won’t be for long,” Jennifer said.

“A minute is too long,” Ethan said.

“Hey you two, you can see each other later, we have a meeting, sis,” James said.

“All right bro,” Jennifer said.

“I’ll be back later, love you baby,” Ethan said.

“Love you too,” Jennifer said. He kissed her and left. James and Jennifer met their father in his office and went to the conference room for the meeting.

“James, Jennifer, this is Mark Davis, he wants to redesign his restaurant,” David said.

“Okay,” James said.

“Jennifer, you are lead designer, you can work with him on the design,” David said. James and Jennifer looked at each other and looked at him.

“Um, Dad, can we speak with you?” Jennifer asked.

“Sure honey,” David said.

“Excuse us for a minute,” James said. They went out the door and closed it.

“Jen, what’s wrong?” David asked.

“You seriously don’t see what’s wrong?” Jennifer said.

“Dad, it seems you are trying to get her to work with him closely so she would leave Ethan,” James said.

“I told you that I support the marriage, I was being truthful about that,” David said.

“Then why have me work closely with him?” Jennifer asked.

“Because it’s your job as lead designer,” David said.

“Dad,” James said.

“Baby, you have nothing to worry about, Mari is married to his husband, Jake,” David said.

“He’s gay?” Jennifer asked.

“Yes honey, he told me about him and his husband needing to redesign their restaurant because the previous one messed up,” David said.

“Okay good, so Ethan will have nothing to worry about,” James said.

“I would never do something like that to you, honey, I know you love Ethan and I want you happy and you are,” David said.

“Okay,” Jennifer said. They went back into the conference room to finish the meeting. They made plans and Mark left. Jennifer started working on the plans. She hadn’t checked the time and she felt eyes on her and she looked up and saw her husband standing at the door.

“Hey gorgeous,” Ethan said.

“Hey handsome,” Jennifer said.

“I couldn’t wait any longer,” Ethan said.

“What time is it?” Jennifer said.

“Four o’clock,” Ethan said.

“Wow, lost track of time,” Jennifer said.

“You okay baby?” Ethan asked.

“Yeah, we have a new account, a restaurant,” Jennifer said.

“Oh,” Ethan said.

“Babe, you better sit down,” Jennifer said. He sat down and she told him what had happened at the meeting.

“So he’s gay?” Ethan asked.

“That’s what my dad said and he swore that it wasn’t a plot to break us up,” Jennifer said.

“I hope not,” Ethan said.

“It’s not, Ethan, I swear to you, he’s married to a man,” David said.

“I hope you are telling the truth because I will not let her go, I love her with everything in me,” Ethan said.

“I know you do and you make her happy and that’s all I want for my daughter,” David said.

“Okay then,” Ethan said.

“I’m going to head home with my husband,” Jennifer said.

“Okay honey, have a good night,” David said. She and Ethan went home and locked up and ate dinner before going to their room and showered together and they collapsed on the bed and made love off and on throughout the night before falling asleep in each other’s arms.
