Between Her Bosses:Box Set(62)By: Sadie Black
“I better not see you or hear about you coming around here again.” He warns before calmly walking back to my side and continues to escort me to the car as if nothing happened.
Once we’re safely inside, I fall into his arms, the same strong arms that just saved me are now wrapped around me protectively. “Thank you, I don’t know what he would’ve done if you hadn’t shown up.”
“Shhh, it’s ok. He won’t be back, I promise you. Besides, what kind of man would I be if I couldn’t look after the mother of my babies?”
“Oh, is that right?” I tease, but inside I love the idea.
“Of course,” he smiles, “I’d say two babies, but maybe four.”
“Four! Wow, you’ve got some big plans!”
“I do, Mrs. Hollingsworth. We shouldn’t waste any time getting started,” he leans into me, convincing me with his tender kiss.
“Mmmm, is now too early to get started?” I laugh, kissing him again.
“Let’s find out.”
“Are you still getting morning sickness?” Charday asks me, taking a sip of her wine.
“It’s getting better, the doctor told me it usually doesn’t last too far into the second trimester,” I touch my stomach, still in awe of the fact that I’m making a baby in there. I’m only four months along, so my belly hasn’t popped yet, but when I saw the heartbeat on the ultrasound I knew it finally felt real.
“Well, I’m glad to hear it’s gonna get better soon. Do you want some more?” She asks about my empty glass of sparkling water.
“Nah, I’m driving,” I tease. “So, how are you enjoying your new wine bracket?” I ask about her expensive vintage she’s drinking.
“You know how it is,” her eyes sparkle, “I still can’t believe you convinced Jacob to give me a chance in the marketing department. It’s amazing to have a real career, and you know, the new apartment is a nice perk too,” she laughs.
“Hey, I didn’t convince him to do anything. You nailed the interview and had awesome references, just because one of those references happened to be his wife doesn’t mean you don’t deserve it.”
“Oh, I’m not saying I don’t deserve it,” we laugh.
Her new apartment is beautiful, right in the heart of Manhattan, it’s perfect for a single, sexy career woman like her. Now that Jacob and I moved out of the city into a house, we don’t get to see each other as much as we used to, but we make the most of the times that we do get together.
“I forgot to ask, did you watch the first episode?” Charday lowers her voice, even though it’s just her, me and the baby belly in the room.
“No, did you?”
“Yeah, sorry, I just couldn’t look away!” After Chuck ran off to the Seychelles for six months he came back to New York. Apparently he wasn’t getting enough attention in paradise so he cashed in on his bad boy billionaire image and landed a spot on The Bachelor. “You should’ve seen all the girls throwing themselves at him, if they only knew.” She shakes her head.
“Those women wouldn’t care if he was a serial killer as long as they win the show and have their five minutes. I’m sure he’s eating it all up too. Chuck always did love his games.” Honestly, I don’t wish anything bad for him, I hope he finds his perfect non-whore on the reality show. Now that Jacob and I are married and having a family, all of that feels like ancient history.
“Well, they deserve what they get.” Charday smiles.
“I guess we all got what we deserved in the end,” I agree.
“Hey don’t say that!”
“Why not?” I’m confused, everything is going so well for all of us.
“Wait until I find a man like yours, then you can say that,” she laughs.
“Fair enough!” I giggle.
