- One year later-
"Chloe!" Leo screams from behind me. I pay him no heed. For the past six months he hasn't let me out of his sights. Or his arm reach.
"Chloe! Stop! You really should sit down and rest!"
Like hell I should. Doesn't he get that I'm perfectly fine.
I keep my brisk walk, trying hard to stay away from him. Can't he tell that I want to be alone? That I need some girl time with Natalie? I've been cooped up in that house for so long, I swear I'm about to go crazy.
I keep my pace, and am able to avoid Leo for a little while, but the inevitable happens, and I feel his hand wrap around my upper arm, pulling me to a complete stop. Turning around I raise my eyebrow at him, "Can I help you?"
"Good God Chloe! You shouldn't be out walking! You need to be resting! You know what the doctor said!" He exclaims.
I let out a sigh, and try to tug my arm out of his grasp. "Leo, you're over-reacting. The doctor said that as long as I don't over-exert myself. And walking over to Natalie and Jake's house isn't over-exerting myself. In fact, I find it very refreshing. I've done nothing but rest for the past six months Leo."
He sighs and pulls me into his chest, "I know, I-I just don't want anything to happen to you. Or our baby for that matter. I love you both with all I have in me."
"And I'm sure the baby loves you too. But the Mama here's abut ready to smother you in your sleep."
Leo gently kisses the top of my head. "You wouldn't do that. We're mates; you love me too much."
"Yeah, yeah." I state as though it's nothing.
But in reality, I do love him. I love him with all I have in me. Sure, he may have cheated; broken me; and caused a hell of a lot of trouble, but, he's mine. And that's all that matters.
