Zack drove Valery and I home and as I was about to carry Valery inside he stopped me and said I’ll do it, I didn’t argue with him because I feel pretty weak and now’s definitely not a good time, as he carried Valery in I followed him and opened the door for him, immediately my mom spotted us, she got on her feet in excitement and the worried look on her face seconds ago, actually disappeared and she smiled..


“oh my god I was worried sick what happened” my mom asked “dont worry it was nothing” I lied I don’t need her to get all misty and sympathetic..


She nods and Zack took Valery to her room, “he’s Ξ± real charmer you know” my mom said referring to Zack


“quit whining mom” I rolled my eyes and she smiled


“I’m complimenting him who’s not even here and you’re the one getting all flushed up uhh look at your cheeks it’s so red” my mom yanked pulling my cheeks..


“ugh stop it” I say and my mom rolled her eyes still smiling, which made me smile too..


Zack came. Out of Valery’s room with his car key in his index finger “so I’m off now” he smiled


“I’ll escort you out ” I say calmly and my mom nods totally agreeing with my kind gesture ..


As the door closes behind us I turned to Zack and Gave him a small smile “thank you for today” I said


“no thank you if it wasn’t for you I don’t know where he would have taken Valery to thanks for talking some sense into him” he replied and I smiled “it was no biggie, he actually thought I didn’t love you” I laughed..


oops I can’t believe I just said that ..


“I don’t understand you he thought you didn’t love me” He said Oh. Good. Lord..


“just.. Just forget I said anything” I yanked


“no way, I can’t forget this you have to tell me or else I ain’t leaving” he smirked and I laughed a little.. The day had start to become dark and his eyes became sparkly under the little fluorescent light outside our porch..


“fine.. Owen said I said I didn’t love you but I.. ..i.. told him he was wrong that…i..


I.. ” I couldn’t complete my words Dang it that I’m not a straight forward girl.



“that you love me!!??” he completes it his answer coming at a statement and a question.. I slowly nod and gulped and as adorable grin was placed around his face and we both remained quiet


Okay this is awkward but great, I feel like no tables are turning it no tables were turned and I feel like me and Zack.. Oh. Goodness..


“so.. I.. have to go inside or back to work cause I haven’t really you know I’m..” I


mixed my words and Zack laughed


“why do you work??..” I asked


“Huh? I don’t understand” I said


“I mean you should quit cause I can actually provide for you and Valery” he offered charmingly and I was sudden speechless .. “I.. I.. You know this is kind of. Awkward ” I admit


“what’s awkward about me trying to provide for my own daughter” he said and shifts uncomfortably


“I know you’re not just talking about Valery” I yanked and he bit his lip.. And tried to hide his smiles


“okay you got me there but at least I’m trying to be a better dad” he yanked Awwn


“and I’m not being a better mom is that what you’re saying” I asked somewhat teasingly


“ Not at all you’re the best and I really appreciate your effort and support I mean you’ve been there for her for six years and I’ve just known her weeks I want to be around her too” he suggest and I couldn’t help the sympathy that took over me for him


“awwn that’s so sweet of you” I tell him and he smile beams


“thanks” he tells me and I bat my eyelashes at him and he let out a sounding laugh.




When he recovered from his laughter he sighed and said “so I’ll come by tomorrow to pick my car since you fired me” I say and he smiled


“okay, I’ll also come by tomorrow after work to see Valery ” he said and I nod.. “so good night then” I said


“yeah.. Good night” he tells me back the day has finally become dark I was surprised to see my self still standing outside instead of walking inside “is it awkward that I don’t you to leave yet” I said almost in a whisper


“yes.. Yes it is” he laughed and I smiled.. And hit his arm playfully, he rubbed it playfully like it hurts him and I laughed and he surprises me by kissing me and I reciprocated


It’s actually the second time…


I can’t believe I’m busy counting our kisses while I should be enjoying it while it lasts..


“okay good night for real this time” he said as he pulled out From the kiss and I






When I walked in my mom gave me the most strangest look ever “what?” I asked


“nothing,..i have a feeling you like Zack” my mom said and I roll my eyes “I’ll take that as a yes” she said “I’ll go to my room” I announced


“you know I. Just think you should marry him” my mom said and I almost choked on my breath


“what? ” I yell


“what are you yelling about you two have a child and you love it each other” she seethe


“I don’t love him.. Who told.. y.. you that” I lie and could feel the hitting on my




“hmm-mm” my mom. Looked at me and I rolled my eyes ,


and walked away I got on my bed and removed my shoe today had been a day I’ll never forget.. I laid on the bed and started to think about Zack.. Strange Huh?






I got home happily form work immediately I got in, I met my mom, dad my younger brother Xander and my baby sitter Nixie on the couch. my mom was in tears and the sad expression on my siblings face made me felt a tight knot in my stomach and my smile changed to a frown. What’s this old cargo doing here anyway.


“hey mom. ” I greeted and she cleaned her tears. What the hell happened “you’re home early” my dad said.


“what’s it to you” I yanked removing my jacket..


“be a little nicer to your father Zachary ” my mom tells me.


“nice my butt mom do you even know he’s getting married” I yelled “not anymore” my dad. Chipped in Huh?



“I realized I was making a full time mistake of getting married to another woman. you guys are my happiness I’ve already apologized to your mother and she forgave me and so did your brother and sister” he explained. “whatever” I said and my mom gave me a look.


“so you’re home early” my mom changed the subject


“yeah of course I wasn’t at work since like three In the afternoon”.i said taking my shoes off


“why?” my mom asked.


“Valery got Kidnapped ” I said and Nixie got up from the couch


“OMG is she okay” she asked.


“that poor thing” my mom added.


“she’s fine actually, ” I said and tossed my tie over the couch. “who’s Valery? ” my dad and Xander asked at the same time. “his daughter” Nixie replied


“oh.. You’ve seen her? ” Xander asked


“yeah she’s a cutey and a blabber beak” Nixie said and I rolled my eyes “don’t call her that” I said.


“oh.. I thought you were joking on having a daughter” my dad said and I rolled my eyes at him and went upstairs to my room. It was about time I got my own house, but I could not or else my mom would break Fucking great…







The next morning I shrugged awake and the sweet smell of brownies filled the entire house .I quickly brushed my teeth and head to the kitchen. I met mom. “brownies!!” I said happily and my mom laughed.


“like mother like daughter you go crazy for brownies and so does Valery” she said after taking a bite from two brownies. I wenr to Valery’s room to wake her up. she took her bath and I took her to school through a taxi.


I got back to work to take back my car and unfortunately at the parking loft I met Zack parking his car.. He saw me and smiled and immediately got down from his car


“hey good morning ” I said.


“morning to you too” he replied cheerfully and I smiled.


Suddenly an unexpected rain started to pour.



“come-on get In the car” he said and I got in the passengers seat while he sat at the driver’s seat


“what kind of rain is that? ” I seethe and touched some strands of wet hair on my head.


“maybe it’s just passing rain clouds” he said and I nodded “so you’re here to pick your car.” he added. We both remained quiet staring at each other..


“what are we doing sarah” Zack said still his eyes on mine.


“what? ” I replied


“I mean we have a daughter and all.. Just get married to me ” he said and I smiled, he’s right my mom’s right..


“is that suppose to be a proposal” I asked.


And he laughed


“no no way but maybe I guess yes. I mean I’m not very good with it” he said. “you’re awful” I lied


“thanks it means a lot” he said and we both laughed.


“you know I really love you Sarah.” he said.


“I know.” I said with a low voice and threw my gaze somewhere else .


“so is it a yes ” he asked and searched my eyes and I slowly nodded. He smiled happily reveling his dimple and we kissed… .
