Chapter 6

Chloe's POV

I woke up with electricity finally since Jay gave me the money to pay my rent and a few bills. Maybe I was finally getting somewhere. I heard two little cries so I got up from the sofa where I had fallen asleep and picked held my two little princesses in my arms.

"Shhhh, shhhh. Everything is okay now. Shhhhh." They calmed down a little so I placed them back into their crib and made them both a bottle of milk. I still had no names for them so they were baby one and baby two, chosen by age. Deep down, I guess I hoped me and Nathan would choose the baby names together, but fat chance of that happening.

After I fed and burped my angels they both fell back to sleep. That's all they do, eat and sleep. And poop too!

Anyway I noticed an envelope under the door which was strange as I never normally got post. I went over and it was addressed to me so I opened it.

'Dear Chloe,
I know you can't afford a phone, or anything anymore for that matter so this was my only way of contacting you. I now know the truth alright? The truth that those two babies are mine. That my blood runs through their veins and we created them together on that magical night. I know you probably hate me and I hate me too for letting you go, but I want to make things right. Meet me today at Starbucks at 11am. Bring the twins. If you show up, great we can talk it through, if not, I know it's over and I'll sign over my rights as the father

Once yours, Nathan Sykes x'

I smiled a little at the fact that he still cared about me and wanted to be involved in the children's lives. I was also happy about the face that he said he hates himself that he let me go. Although on that night he couldn't have stopped me, he could have tried harder to find me and he knows it! I decided I was going to go... but one problem. I looked up at the clock and it was 10:50. SHIT!

I ran into my bedroom and dressed into the most expensive looking outfit I could find, even though he knows, I didn't want him to think I was a charity case! I tied my hair into a messy bun and quickly put the twins into their pram with their blankets.

11:11

I finally turned the corner to get to Starbucks, knowing I was probably already too late. I opened the door to the shop and rushed inside, panting and trying to catch my breath.

"Chloe?" A smooth and familiar Gloucestershire accent spoke and I felt a hand on my shoulder. I spun on my heels and saw Nathan smiling. "You came!" He gently gave me a hug but I was confused by why he was so tender.

"Yeah I came. Sorry I'm late but I only woke up twenty five minutes ago. Forgive me?"

"Your forgiven! I bought you a drink, it's tea, two sugars and milky just how you like it!" He handed me a cup and I thanked him. "Let's go for a walk..." He took control of the pram as we walked side by side along the footpath and into the park. Most parents would be concerned that he was going to try run away with them, but not me. He wouldn't do that.

We sat down on an empty bench and I continued to sip my drink. The twins began to stir and that's when he broke the silence.

"May I hold one?"

"Sure." I picked up the eldest one and he took her from me with a big smile.

"She's gorgeous! What's her name?" He asked.

"Oh errrrmmmm. Baby one... I haven't given them real names yet..." I sighed since I probably sounded like an awful parent.

"Abigail Poppy Sykes and Lily Mae Sykes..." He blurted out and my eyes widened.

"What?"

"Abigail Poppy Sykes and Lily Mae Sykes!" He repeated which caused me to smile.

"Those names are perfect Nathan, that one can be Abigail and sleeping beauty over there can be Lily." I picked up Lily and cradled her whilst Nath blew raspberries on little Abby's cheeks. She was awake now and was wriggling and smiling in his grip.

"How did I not see it before? They look just like me, and you. Wow..." We swapped kids so Lily got some attention from her dad and I just nodded. "I'm sorry, for everything you know? I didn't want to call you those things, I was trying to show off to her. I never stopped loving you..."

"I never stopped loving you either..."

"Every night your the last person I think about and your the first on my mind on a morning. You could have asked me for money, not Jay..."

"I didn't want money from either of you! He forced me to take it but I'm glad he did. I was doing fine until I had to quit my job and give birth... it was worth it though..." I stroked Abigail's head and kissed her nose lightly.

"I wish I could go back and be a better boyfriend to you. I would have flipped when I found out I know, but I would have stuck by you. If I was gonna have kids they would have been with you. I mean, look how sexy they are!" I let out a little chuckle at his remark and rested my head on his shoulder.

"Come on then Sykes, what's the real reason you asked me here?"
