“Are you sure Sam, you don’t really have to go.” JP pleaded with me, but I
knew it was the right thing to do.
She and Romeo are to be signing their lease on their new place next week and
I can’t keep standing on the sideline waiting for a girl who will never love
the way I want her to. I’ll always be there for JP and Claire but it’s time
I let go and moved on with my own life.
“I told you, It’ll be fine, I’m fine and Romeo will take care of you, all
three of you. I’m not that far away remember, a 20 minute drive, you can see
me anytime you want.” I assured her as I put my last bag in the trunk.
Claire came running out jumping in my arms, giving me a tight hug.
“I'll miss you Uncle Sammy!” She cried as a rubbed her back. She'll always
be my baby. I was there the first years and that’s something Romeo can’t
take from me.
“Okay, ill stop by sometime. Check out that new business Mr. Big shot.” JP
joked as I saw Romeo’s car pulling up in the drive.
“Okay, but I have to go. “ I told her as she jumped in my arms with her big baby
belly squashed between us. She looked beautiful even with her swollen belly.
I inhaled her scent one last time, something that will forever be in my
“Take care of them Romeo.” I said as I looked over JPs Shoulder at him.
“I will, you know they are my life. I’m not fu*cking it up this time.” He
assured me as JP slowly pulled away wiping a few tears out her eyes. Romeo
wrapped one arm around JPs small waist as his other hand held Claire's small
When will I get that, have a beautiful life with a family of my own? When
will it be my chance at happiness? Do I ever see myself loving anyone as
much as I love JP?
I finished up with the last of my clothing before going to my studio. I loved to take pictures, why not make a living with it. I opened my own studio to help beautiful young upcoming models with their portfolios so they can be seen.
I didn’t really have any employees, there was no need. I only had one appointment today with Natasha Moore. I set up my equipment, making sure my dark room was set up and I had everything I needed. I heard bell ring letting me know someone wanted in. I had a huge open studio apartment for my business.
“Sam’s Photography.” I stated thinking of the business name fast. “Hi, my names Natasha, I have an appointment.” She said as I buzzed the buzzer letting her in. I played with a few of my cameras waiting for her to come up. A minute later she walked in.
I think my di*ck was speaking for me the minute I laid eyes on her. Where all models this se*xy, and if so was I really that fu*cking blind? I was so wrapped up in JP’s beauty to even notice any other beauty. “Hello, I’m Sam Wilkens.” I said shaking her hand as smiled at me.
“Natasha, or Natty as my friends say.” She laughed as she walked over to some of my shots I’ve token and hung on the wall in the studio. Most of them where Clair, JP was in one but you couldn’t see her face.
“Wow, theses are beautiful. Is this your daughter?” She asked. “No, my god daughter. But I love her like my own.” I said proudly as she looked back at me. “That’s sweet. So have you ever done portfolios shots before?” She asked as I chewed my lip nervously. “To tell you the truth, no. but I’ve watched JPs be taken many times, I can do it I’m sure of it.” I said hopefully.
“JP?” She asked as she sat down. “June-Pearl.” I told her clearing it up. “Was she an upcoming model too?” She asked as she looked at me curious. “She use to be, but then her dream came true.” I told her as all her attention seemed to be on me.
“I never heard of her before.”She said as I laughed remembering she changed her name before becoming a super model. “That’s her real name; her stage name was Juliet Kind.” I told her as her eyes grew wide with realization. “No fu*cking way.” She mumbled in disbelief. I smiled and nodded my head.
“So you, like knew Juliet?” She asked with full attention directly on me. “Yeah, she’s my best friend.” I said as I looked at her. I should have thought this was one of the times to keep my mouth shut, since a million different questions came out before she agreed to let me do her portfolio shot. I didn’t really go into details about JP, just told her small things. Natasha offered to refer me to some of her friends and with-in two weeks business was blooming.32 upcoming models all came to me for their portfolio shot.
