74. The Day Before

I knew I was all over the place, my emotions were running rampant.

When I woke to Jay speaking to 'our baby' my tears flowed.

"Hello little one, this is your daddy.  I wanted to let you know that I won't be with you and mummy tonight, but that doesn't mean I don't want to be.  After tonight, mummy and I will be with you forever, but for tonight I need you to look after each other.  I love you both so much."

Oh my god, his voice shook with emotion before he kissed my belly and it was my undoing.

I was sobbing when Jay pulled me into his arms and kissed my lips.

"Please don't cry Mia, it fucking kills me." He whispered.

"I can't help it Jay, I love you so much." I cried.

"It's just one night baby and when it's over we'll be meeting each other to become husband and wife."

I smiled through my tears. 

"I know, but I'll miss you so much."

"I'll miss you too baby, I really will.  I've never wanted anything as much as I want to marry you and for our little one to join us.  You, me and our little one are already a family, just one night apart and we'll become an official one."

His hand gripped my breast and my anxiety receded. 

"I love you and our baby more than I ever thought possible Mia.  Tomorrow night you'll be laying in my arms as Mia Williams, my wife."

His lips met mine in a kiss that had my toes curling.  His fingers prepared me and within minutes he was fully inside me, making me feel complete again.

"I don't know how I ever lived without you." I confessed as I held him close. 

Yes, thanks Leisa, it was another dramatic comment.

"I wasn't living, I know that now." Jay said just as dramatically and my tears started again.

For the last time, I climaxed with my fiance.  The next time we came together would be as husband and wife and I couldn't be happier.

"I can't wait for tomorrow." I said and broke the silence we'd been laying in.  "I'm sorry for being so emotional."

"Babe, don't ever be sorry for being you.  You're the woman I fell in love with, emotions and all."

He kissed the top of my head as he held me tight.

****

Saying goodbye was ridiculously hard.  I knew it was only one night and then we'd spend the rest of our lives together, but I missed him before he even left.

Harper comforted me as I spilled even more tears.

"Hey, the dresses should be here soon." She said in an attempt to cheer me up. 

I sniffled as I looked up at her.

"I'm sorry." I mumbled pathetically.

"For what?  Having emotions?  You're marrying a man who absolutely adores you Mia, you're carrying his child and you don't want to spend tonight without him.  I completely understand hun.  Stop being so hard on yourself."

"God, I'm a mess. I don't know what's gotten into me." I said as I wiped my tears.

"You're right, the dresses should be here soon and so should Megan for that matter. I really need to pull myself together."

Harper smiled as she hugged me. "It's all going to be perfect Mia, trust me. Jay is as invested as you are. You are absolutely perfect together."

"I know.  He is the best thing that's ever happened to me.  I'm just going to freshen up, will you be okay?"  I asked.

"Yeah, of course.  I'll keep an eye out for Megan and the dresses, take as much time as you need."

I texted Jay when I entered our room.

We love you and can't wait to see you tomorrow xx

His response was almost immediate.

I'll be waiting for you both xx

I took a quick shower and headed back downstairs in time for Megan to arrive.

"Oh honey, are you okay?"  She asked when she saw my still red eyes.

I smiled and nodded.  "Yeah, I got a bit emotional but I'm okay now."

My eyes widened with excitement when I heard the door bell.

Harper answered and accepted the delivery, carrying the 3 garments into the lounge where she laid them over the back of the couch.

"Can you open them?" I asked her, my hands were shaking too much.

"Which one first?" She asked excitedly. "Yours?"

"Yes." I squealed, my excitement matching hers.

Megan and I held hands as she unzipped the bag and before I knew it, I was crying again.

Exquisite! That was the first word to enter my brain.

"Oh my god Harper, it's so beautiful. It's perfect. Jays gonna...oh my god he's gonna have a hard on for sure. He'll love it. I love it. I love you. Megan can you believe it? Oh my god, look at it, it's so fucking gorgeous. You are so talented and I can never thank you enough."

My rant came to a halt when I hugged her.

"From the bottom of my heart Harper, thank you so much." I sobbed.

Yep, the tears were back.

We all hugged and shed tears after my little outburst.

"Are you going to try it on?" Megan asked and I shook my head.

"Not until tomorrow.  When I put it on it's going to be to meet Jay."

"I'm so glad he found you Mia."  She said through her tears.

"I'm glad we found each other."

"Should I open the other bags?"  Harper asked and I nodded eagerly.

As she unzipped them, I caught sight of the emerald green fabric.  As Harper removed them from the bags, I gasped.

"I've said it before and I'll say it forever," I began as my tears flowed "Harper you are an amazing designer, but a more amazing friend.  I'm so happy that we met.  I really, really love you."

Harper hugged me as she tried to control her own tears. 

"I love you too Mia.  It took me a long time to trust again, but with you and Jay it was so easy.  I owe you more than you'll ever know."

Again we were in a group hug as we all cried.  Luckily we were interrupted by a knock at the door.

Wiping my eyes, I headed towards the door, took a steadying breath and opened it.
