~ Taylor POV ~

I looked at the way he set up the whole thing. We were on the roof of his beach house, the Conjunction beach house, and looked at the pinkish orange skyline. It was beautiful no doubt and the silence wasn't awkward.

"Tell me what's been happening," he said and looked at me. I ignored his gaze and kept looking forward.

"What do you want to know about?"

"Everything," he answered. I'm not going to tell him everything, that's something I'm not gonna do.

"Uh, let's see..." I trailed off before thinking about everything I wanted to tell him. I told him about everything except the kids, I couldn't do it.

"What about the kids?"

"I had to take online college courses because I had to take care of them," I stalled.

"No, not that. Who's their father?" I kept my composure and looked ahead still. I wasn't going to tell him about his kids now and we're having a good time. I almost forgot I was a mom. Craig made me forget about everything at home.

"Darryl," I said quickly. He does have a crush on me, but I never had the time to actually go out with him and he knew why. I never told Darryl about the kids' father, but he knows that I have kids. He a sweet guy and everything, but I don't want random dudes coming in and out of my house. I don't want the kids thinking, which one is my daddy. I heard Craig sigh, as if he was taking this hard.

"So, do you love him?" Darryl is my best guy friend besides Kain, and I do love him in a brother way.

"Yeah," I said, laying on my back.

"Let me rephrase that; are you in love with him?" I covered my face and looked in his direction,"No."

"Do you still love me?" He asked, I heard a hint of hope in his voice was clear.  

"Is the sky blue?"

"No," he said looking at it. I rolled my eyes at his smart mouth.

"Let me rephrase that; is the sky blue in the day and night?" I asked just as smartly. He laughed before turning to me,"Yeah."

"Then there's your answer," I whispered.

"Why can't you say it? I've basically been saying it-"

"I can't because you have to earn it back."

"Once someone's your first love, that's it. Your love never leaves, even if they did some things in the wrong. Say it, Taylor." I sat up and got in his face.

"I thought you said I wouldn't have a problem out of you?"

"Why are you so hostile towards me?"

"Because you weren't supose to find me!" Oops, that definitely slipped out.

"You were hiding from me?"

"I wanted to be happy without you, Craig. You hurt me bad, you know that? You accused me of cheating. Why would I cheat, just to get back at you? I could torture you by not talking to you. Just because I was with my friend, Kain, just having a casual lunch, you accuse me of cheating when I caught you in the bathroom with some hoe."

"Taylor, I really am sorry for hurting you, but you know what I went through with Penelope, Rachael, Michelle and Dana. I wasn't good enough to be with them and even though we were together for a while I thought you were gonna leave me, too." I shook my head and looked at him with sympathy.
