Episode 35

 

Flynn Vasilios P.O.V

 

I tried to fixed my bow tie as I walked into the bedroom where Jill was changing. When I entered the room my eyes almost fell out of there sockets.

 

My pudding look like an angel.

 

She stood in front of the mirror, applying mascara to her lashes. The dress she was wearing accentuated her curves and brought out her pretty blue-green eyes. She looked so pretty I don’t think i’ll be able to take my eyes off her tonight.

 

“You look gorgeous.” I walked up to her and place a kiss on her temple. She still felt like a dream to me. I can’t believe I have her in my arms after so many years and I’m definitely not planning on letting her go.

 

Not now.

 

Not ever.

 

“Thanks Vasilios, you look handsome too.” She turned around and placed a kiss on my lips. She then giggled and wiped the lipstick stain off my lips. “Mmh, I see you wore the outfit I picked out for you.”

 

I smiled and looked down at my outfit.It was a white cotton shirt with blue vest and jeans. “Of course, You’re my girlfriend soon to be wife. I should obey you.”

 

Her eyes widened and her smile turned into a scowl. “Don’t make jokes like that.”

 

“What do you mean?” I asked confused.

 

“Soon to be wife. It feels like you’re proposing.” She turned around and reapplied her lipstick.

 

“What if I’m not.” I watch her reaction through the mirror.

 

“Then it should be better than this. I know you can do better than this.” She winked at me and walked out of the bedroom. “I will see you downstairs, darling.”

 

My heart skipped a beat when she said the last part. This is the first time she called me anything else than Vasilios. It was damn time for a change.

 

I watch her walking out of the room. Her hips swaying from left to right at each step she took. She was the kind of girl I could only dream about.

 

Sweet, nice, caring, and loving. And a little bit of freakiness.

 

She was everything I need and so much more. Jill deserved the world and I’m ready to give her that. She was an angel that brought the good out in me.

 

I walked into the walk-in closet and squatted down to open the secret drawer behind the mirror. Jill didn’t know this drawer exist. Lucky me, because I ran out of ideas where to hide this.

 

I stared at the red velvet box. It was in this drawer for almost a month now and I could not wait to see it on Jill.

 

But I was not going to give it to her yet. I needed the perfect moment for this.

 

I placed the box back in the drawer and sighed heavily. I was already so nervous and it was not even happening yet. I closed the door of the walk-in closet and headed downstairs to help Jill with dinner.

Jill Malik P.O.V

Flynn and I were busy helping the caterers to put everythingin place when the

doorbell rang. “Tl get it.” Flynn said and walked out of the kitchen to open the door.

I continued doing my work when I suddenly heard. “Pudding, tía is here!”

My eyes widened and I ran out of the kitchen. Aunt Lydia and Milan were standing

in the foyer with a huge smile on their faces. “Tía, Milan!” I hugged Aunt Lydia

firmly and then squatted down to Milan to place kisses all over his face. “How was

the flight?” I was so happy they finally arrived. I had been waiting and thinking

about them all day.

“The flight was pleasant. No problems at all.” she said smiling and then looked at

Flynn. “Your private jet is amazing. I’m so happy you take good care of Jill.”

“Actually,” Flynn said, chuckling nervously. I can’t believe he’s nervous around my

aunt. “She’s the one that takes care of me.” He placed his hand possessively around

my waist and looked down at Milan who was staring at the huge christmas tree in

the living room. “Did you brought a girlfriend with you to kiss under the mistletoe

later, bud?”

I elbowed him and he groaned in pain. How can he say that to a six year old boy?

“God pudding, no need to be so violent.”

I turned my attention back to Aunt Lydia. “Let’s go to the kitchen. I was helping the

caterers to put everything ready for dinner.” I then looked at Flynn who was still in

pain and smiled sweetly at him. “Darling can you entertain Milan while me and tía

are doing the final touches for dinner.”

Flynn nodded and took Milan’s hand to bring him to the living room. Aunt Lydia

and I then walked to the kitchen and that’s when I noticed she was limping instead

of walking. There was also a bandage on her foot.

“Tía, what happened to your foot?” I asked, worried. When I called her she didn’t

mention getting injured.

“Oh don’t worry about that.” she chuckled. “Ijust stepped on lego.”

I facepalmed myself. I knew all those boxes oflego wasn’t a good idea.

Later on the night Flynn’s parents arrived, Luca and Reina, and at last Ximena and

Rodrigo. Lately Ximena and Rodrigo had spent an awful amount of time together.

They even went on a vacation to Bali, Indonesia in November. I wonder if they are

in a relationship, but they both have denied it. “We are just friends!” they always

said in unison.

When everyone arrived we started dinner. There was a lot of food. There was

chicken drumsticks and vegetables in mustard tarragon sauce, garlic and herb

roasted turkey, macaroni and cheese, roasted sweet potatoes, mashed sweet

potatoes, cheesecalke, roasted garlic bread, and bacon potatoes.

The food was delicious and I might consider to hire this catering service the next

time when we are having a party. During dinner we talked about a lot of stuff.

Ximena and Rodrigo talked about their holiday weekend in Bali. If one would not

know, they would think they were a couple. Rodrigo seemed so caring for Ximena

and I’m pretty sure Ximena is the one who’s friendzoning him. Iprobably should

talk to her about her feelings towards Rodrigo. I know that now she has trust

issues, because ofthat ierk Blake but I think she need to give Rodrigo a chance.Then Milan entertained us with his story about this girl he liked at school and how she was mad at him, because he didn’t wanted to share his cupcake with her. “But mommy,” he said sweetly and looked at me with cheesecake on his tiny nose. “It was my last cupcake and now she’s mad at me.”

 

I chuckled and wiped the cheesecake off his nose. “Don’t worry, when you go back to school, she will not be mad at you anymore.” My little boy is growing so fast, he’s already getting infatuated. It will only take a couple of years before he will fall in love and will introduce me to his girlfriend. I just hope he will not turn into a heartbreaker.

 

“Really?” he asked surprised.

 

I nodded. “Of course, if she likes you back, she cannot stay mad at you.”

 

“Like your friend boy and you?” He still called Flynn my friend boy.

 

“Yes bud.” Flynn answered grinning and ruffled his hair. “Like mommy and I. Take notes bud.”

 

Everyone laughed. We had such a great family time and after a long time I felt complete. I finally had my life together. All the times that I was scrolling through my instagram feed in the past and seeing quotes about getting your life together, I think this is the moment. My moment.

 

I was surrounded by the people I love and adored. Flynn’s parents were so nice towards me and they accepted me with open arms. They often made pregnancy and wedding jokes which earned them a glare from Flynn.

 

After dinner we went to the living room to play board games and watch a movie. I turned on the bluetooth on my phone and it connected with the speaker in the room. Music was blasting through the small speaker and Ximena and Reina held a karaoke contest. I joined them and together we sang mistletoe from Justin bieber and Santa tell me from Ariana Grande.

 

Unexpectedly I felt warm liquid in my underwear. It wasn’t suppose to come this early. Oh god, it can’t be happening right now!

 

I excused myself and ran upstairs to the bathroom. When I pulled down my underwear I cursed inwardly. Why does it need to happen right now when I ran out of pads and forgot to buy some. I covered my face and sighed deeply. What the hell should I do? I’m not going back downstairs like this. And I will definitely not use toilet paper as emergency pads, because I did that in the past and it just ended up horribly disgusting.

 

I don’t know how long I sat on the toilet, but suddenly I heard a faint knock on the bathroom door. “Pudding, are you alright?” Flynn asked, worried.

 

“No,” I squeaked. “It’s my time of the month and I forgot to buy pads.”

 

It was silent for a couple of seconds and then I heard Flynn ask, “Do you want me to buy you some?”

 

“That would be nice, Vasilios.” I answered back. I couldn’t stay in here forever.

 

“Okay, stay here. I’ll be back in a couple of minutes.” I heard him walking in the room, probably looking for his wallet and then I heard the bedroom door close.

 

Fifteen minutes went by and the bathroom door opened and Flynn appeared with in his hand a blue plastic bag. “Most stores were closed. The one that was open, didn’t had pads. So I bought tampons. The man who work there said it was the same.”

Tampons and pads are not the same.But oh well, atleast he went out to buy them for me. “Thank you darling, but tampons and pads are not the same. But I’ll make it work.” I planted a kiss on his cheeks. “You’re so sweet!”

 

“Everything for you pudding.” He smiled and caressed my tummy. “You’re not in pain right? I mean I heard a lot about period cramps and how bad they can be.”

 

I laughed softly and my insides melted at how worried he sound. Every time I was on my period he treated me like I was pregnant. He didn’t allow me to work and let me stay in bed. I told him so many times that it was not that bad, but he just chose not to believe me. “No darling, it does not hurt at all. Don’t worry.”

 

“Well then, I’ll be downstairs if you need anything.” He placed a kiss on my forehead and walked out of the bathroom.

 

I closed the bathroom door and let out a sigh as I looked at the package in my hand. How the hell do you insert a tampon? I would have called Ximena or Reina upstairs, but from what I could hear they were having a lot of fun. I didn’t want to ruin it just to ask them one stupid question.

 

I opened the pack with tampons and stared at it for a while. Do you just push it in? I grabbed my phone from the sink and opened the youtube app. There must be a tutorial on there about how to insert tampons.

 

I quickly watch the video and inserted the tampon as how it was instructed. I washed my hands and walked downstairs. When I entered the living room everyone was staring at me wide eyed.

 

“What?” I asked as they kept staring at me. Ximena and Reina tried to hold in their laughter while Flynn and Rodrigo looked pale.

 

“Honey, have you turned off your bluetooth while you were watching that video?” Flynn’s mom asked, trying to hold in her laughter.

 

My eyes turned wide in horror and I immediately turned on my phone and saw that the bluetooth option was still on.

 

Oh god ! I covered my face that turned red like a cherry. The whole room had heard the tampon video through the speaker !

 

“Merry embarrassing christmas Jill.” I whispered to myself as everyone bursted out laughing.

 

Flynn walked over to me and wrapped his arms around me.

 

“It’s fine pudding.” he chuckled. “Now we all know how to insert a tampon.”
