The following week in Scotland with Alex passed quickly. More quickly than I would've liked it to. I was enjoying every second of the quiet and of the familiar environment. I was biting on my tongue all the time to stop myself from asking Alex to move to Scotland for good! I knew very well that it was impossible. He could not just let everything behind him and go. It would be selfish of me to even ask.
I was savoring every minute before I went back to my new home... We were leaving today. Alex must've sensed my stress because he was following me around the house like a lost puppy, he even bumped into my back at some point because I stopped suddenly.
"Alex, you're pissing me off!" I should not be letting my anger out on him, but he was there... Plus, this came with the description of being married.
All I got as an answer was a chuckle. He wrapped his arms around me from behind and pulled me to his chest. "So? Are you going to spank me?" He said as he kissed the side of my neck.
"Yeah bad boy, maybe later, I need to pack." I have been stalling... I did not want to pack because I did not want to leave but now it either I pack either we miss our plane.
Missing the plane sounded like a good idea, but I decided to stop acting childish and just man up and go back home with my husband.
"You want me to help you?" Asked Alex.
"No, it's fine." He still did not let me go. Now he was rubbing his hand on my belly trying to feel the baby and was rewarded with a nice kick. Ouch, that was my bladder baby!
"I insist. I don't want you and Junior to be tired."
"Fine, I'll go watch a movie you pack." I pulled away from him and went to throw myself on the sofa.
My feet hurt already. I still had quite a few months of pregnancy and I was already suffering...
I must've fallen asleep because the next thing I knew Alex was waking me up, murmuring soft words in my ears, kissing my face and rubbing my tummy. He should stop doing that because every time he lays his hands on my bump the baby starts dancing, as if sensing that daddy was there.
I groaned as I got up and got myself ready to leave. I also reminded myself of the necessity to pee before I leave the house. Pregnancy really does some weird things to your body, and peeing every hour is only one of them.
After we left, I couldn't help but feel blue. I was going back to the place I was not welcomed to. The place where there were people who wanted to ruin my marriage. I tried not to let my face show how much I was sad for Alex's sake. He did not deserve this.
Once we were on the plane, I could not hide my stress anymore. I couldn't help the lone tear that escaped my eyes. Alex understood what I was feeling without me saying the words. He pulled me to his arms where I tried to relax. After the takeoff he led us to the bedroom that was on the jet.
"Lay down, I don't want you to get high blood pressure." Alec told me.
I patted the space next to me asking him to join me which he gladly did.
"I am sorry, pregnancy is making me such a cry baby." I told him after sniffing and blowing my nose.
"It's ok my love. You can cry as much as you want...." He said as he trailed his fingers up and down my arm.
"Who was it Alex?" I asked him, "Who wants to create a problem between us?"
I was really worried. If they did this once, they might do it again. This time I was rational enough to see the whole picture and figure out it was a game. What if next time I don't? What will happen then?
"I don't know!" He exhaled. "If I knew I would've given them a piece of my mind, whoever they are."
"What if it was someone closer than we think?" I mean, it was an idea. His father could've arranged it. A plot to bring Alex and Sandra back together.
"That's what I'm afraid of." His voice was worried. He was not the only one upset here.
"What are we going to do?" My voice was now trembling. I did not want to cry again...
"Don't worry about anything. They won't get to us..." Alex assured me.
I hope not. I could not bear to be separated from Alex. The baby started jiggling inside of me at the same instant. Yeah baby... I know... You don't want to be separated from daddy either... I know.
