Chapter 22

Vic's POV

Kellin's on the phone when I enter the kitchen. He seems happy as he's talking and cooking at the same time. It looks as though he's making bacon and eggs but it's past midday. I guess we're having brunch.

He glances up at me as I sit at the breakfast bar. There's definite love in his eyes as he smiles at me then he drops his gaze and goes back to what he was doing.

I can't get last night out of my head. The entirety of it. My head is swimming with a surplus of emotions. So much happened yesterday. We found out Junior is improving, then Lisa went missing, and Kellin and I fought, and someone drugged my daughter, then we ran into Mama at the hospital, came home and I laughed for the first time in weeks, then I made out with Kellin and slept with him pressed up against me.

Yesterday had it's rough patches but it was all okay in the end. I can't help but to have hopes that Kellin and I's relationship is going to be exactly the same.

After last night and the sparks that flew when I kissed him, I realize that we might still have a chance. And that's why I want to talk to him about marriage counselling. I'm not quite ready to let him go.

"Well you girls have fun and stay safe...I love you, okay?...bye." Kellin hangs up the phone and places a plate of food in front of me.

"Morning." he grins.

"Good morning." I smile back. "What was that about?"

"That was Tay. Her and Ella are leaving Michigan and are taking a vacation. She said that she thinks it would be best to keep El occupied and relaxed. She's been really overwhelmed lately." he tells me.

I feel a little guilty. I didn't even think about Ella in all of this. I've been so focused on myself and my kids, I forgot that Ella was Junior's best friend.

"That's a good idea." I smile sadly.

I begin eating and Kellin turns around to dish up the kids breakfast and hopefully his own.

I watch him as I eat, admiring him. I've really missed him. They say you never know what you had until it's gone. It's true. It's almost as if I forgot how much he means to me and how much happiness he actually contributes to my life.

"Kell," I whisper.

He hums and smiles back at me.

"I'm really sorry for yesterday." I say shamefully.

"What for?" he frowns confused.

"For what I said at the party." I sigh.

"I know you didn't mean it." he says smiling sadly.

"That doesn't matter. I still never should have said it."

"Babe, you're forgiven. Don't worry about it." he chirps.

I still feel guilty but decide to just accept his forgiveness and let it go.

"Kell, about all the other things I said over these past few weeks–"

I'm cut off by my phone ringing and I nearly decide not to answer it. I really need Kellin to hear my apology but I guess it can wait five minutes.

I pull out my phone and frown when I see Mama's name on my screen. I answer it and put the phone to my ear.

"What's up, Mama?"

"Honey, can you get your brother and come down to the hospital." she says softly.

I feel my stomach plummet. This can't be good.

"Is Papa okay?" I squeak out.

"He wants to see you. Just come to the hospital, sweetie." she sighs.
