Thinking of you…(And baby 21)

This post contains some foul language.

Alex’s POV

Alex,honey, it’s time to get up and get off the sofa.”

Cassy’s pitying voice made me feel sick. Ugh. No Cassy, how about that. Hey? How about THAT!

I was already feeling the waterworks start up again so I buried my face in the pillow and replied with: “Umph.”

Screenshot-688

“Alex, I’m serious-“

If it wasn’t for the fact that she had allowed me into her house, and the fact that Robin was standing 10 meters away, I would have gotten up, taken the pillow and shoved it down her fat pie-hole. I’m also serious. I’m staying here until I can finally realise that Natalie doesn’t love me.

She hates me.

Robin put his hand on Cassy’s  shoulder and said,

“Leave him.”

Yes, you annoying little cow, leave me alone. I just want to mellow in my own unhappiness.

Robin hit his hand on his head.

Screenshot-689

“You know Alex, it isn’t just you who’s going through a tough time.”

Oh great, now he’s going to nag me.

“I’ve just found out, Alex, that we’ve been relocated to Moonlight Falls. Asked the Commander if we could stay, but no… and you have to move too, Alex.”

“Good,” I said. “Gotta get away from her. And mind you, Moreno, I am going through the toughest time here.”

 

“Anders, I think you better shut your-“

“My what? Look, Moreno, you’ve had a pretty fucking easy life so far. Always perfect in the military, got up to a Sargent a lot quicker than I did. Got a best friend and a fiancé in a week. Has 3 kids. Did a mention a fiancé? Oh yes, a fucking fiancé. Me? All I have is my daughter. A girl who doesn’t even care about me. A girl who’s chose her mom. Oh, but who is it to blame, Moreno? Maybe the one who SAID SHE LOVED ME?” My voice went a hysterical high note and Robin out his arm around me. I sobbed into his arms.

“Of course she loves you! She just doesn’t know it!”

“NO” I sobbed “She hates me! Brittney hates me, Cassy hates me, you hate me EVERYONE HATES ME!”
I broke down into hysterics again.

“Anders, get a grip. I don’t hate you, Cassy doesn’t hate you, Brittney doesn’t hate you and certainly not Natalie!”Screenshot-690

“Now, Anders, pack your bags. We’re going to Moonlight Falls.”

Then I heard a commotion from the door.

Natalie was storming though. She had a tear stained face. Her body froze as she saw my face. Her mouth was in an “o” shape. Cassy stormed through, a moment too late, the words on her lips saying “don’t go into the living room…”

Robin stopped Natalie, glared at Cassy and said, “I think it’s time to leave, Natalie.”

“No! Stay!” Cassy’s voice defiantly answered.

“Y-y-you…” I managed to get out, choking with the effort to break through the shock of seeing my ex-girlfriend here.

“Yes, me!” She yelled. “Me, your loving girlfriend, the one who’s had to sit here and act like I’m the one who doesn’t go through any pain! Like I’m the one who’s always in the wrong! And might i add, the mother of your two children?”

Cassy groaned.

“T-t-two?”

“Yes, you idiot, I’m pregnant. Remember that.. night? Yeah. Happy now?” She yelled and walked out. Cassy stared at her as she left , shaking her head at Robin. I stared at her back for awhile until I mumbled something about leaving to go pack myself, when I heard Cassy say to Robin, “Natalie says she’d live to come to Moonlight Falls with us.”

Screenshot-692

I pretended I’d never heard.

That was best for me.

Natalie’s POV

It was time, as it is always, to grow my babies up.

Screenshot-670

Britney is a beautiful YA.  She’s decided to go into modelling.

Screenshot-671

Luka! He’s decided to go into modelling too, even as much as I tried to discourage him, he’s insistent.

Screenshot-672

Rogan as a child ^_^

Screenshot-673

Rosalie as a child.

I was lying on my bed, alone, tears streaming down my face, clothes strewn across the room where I had attempted to pack.  I had never felt this way about Adrian, Laurent or Jones…but then that was an entirely different situation then.

Then I was the one who had her heart broken.

Not the one breaking the hearts.

But what was the point of calling yourself a strong individual and independent woman (and preaching about it to your kids too) and a proud feminist when here I am crying over a man?

I tried to pick my hand up to wipe my tears but It worked it’s way to the radio to switch it on. Hey, maybe I can listen to some stupid Carly Rae Jempson songs! That’ll cheer me up.

Then of course, as usual, a song comes on that I can just imagine Alex’s sweet voice singing.

Am I better off dead?
Am I better off a quitter?
They say I’m better off now
Than I ever was with her
As they take me to my local down the street
I’m smiling but I’m dying trying not to drag my feet
They say a few drinks will help me to forget her
But after one too many I know that I’ll never
Only they can’t see where this is gonna end
They all think I’m crazy but to me it’s perfect sense

And my mates are all there trying to calm me down
‘Cause I’m shouting your name all over town
I’m swearing if I go there now
I can change her mind turn it all around
And I know that I’m drunk but I’ll say the words
And she’ll listen this time even though they’re slurred
So I dialed her number and confessed to her
I’m still in love but all I heard
Was nothing

Ah, I hate you “The Script”. That band has such a hold on me.

I walked through to the lunge to feel a stinging in my abdomen.

Labour.

Screenshot-678

Ok. I can do this. I can do this.

I will do this.

Tears streamed down my face not because of the pain but because of the fact that my baby will come into the world with no idea that his father doesn’t want hm. That he was born at the wrong time, the time when he was just another mistake.

Just another challenge baby.

Cassy stormed in and saw me in pain. She shoved me in her car and we headed to the hospital. I came out holding a baby.

A baby boy called Alexander Anders II.

If only you knew why

Alex kissed me softly, repeatedly and repeatedly. I could feel myself smiling at him as he pulled the strap of my shirt down.
Screenshot-656

“I love you,” He whispered between kisses. “Oh gosh, I love you so m-“
“Why hello there!” Alex and I stopped dead in our tracks as we heard Britney’s booming teenager voice, dripping with sarcasm.

Screenshot-658
“Praise the Lord! They’ve stopped making out to greet me.Hello to you guys too.” she smirked. I felt my face blush beetroot. Oh my, this girl knows how to manipulate people.
Without letting us say anything, she continued.
“Nah, go back to the hanky panky. Just no shouting out how good your man parts feel, and I’ll be fine, ok dad?” [Part of that statement was inspired by “The Well’s Legacy’s Latest post >.<- Hannah]
Alex blushed furiously, but Britney left. With no hesitation, I returned to kissing him, and I could eventually feel him respond.

Screenshot-659
My top went off, his shirt, my pants until I was in my underwear and him shirtless. We continued kissing and were about to go further when I heard a tapping on the window behind me. We have man size windows, so you can easily peek in. Damn, I forgot to close the curtains.
I whipped my head around to see Cassy, crying with laughter as she saw mine and Alex’s mortified faces. As she saw Alex’s hand, still stuck while trying to unbuckle my bra, she started gasping for air.
I had a feeling this made us friends.

But still, can’t Alex and I be like a normal couple and make love in PEACE?

Alex, making light of the situation, picked me up across his back and yelled, “Ahh! It’s Cassy! Run for your lives!”

“No, no,” Cassy chortled. “Go back to…that.  I just popped by to say Lilly gave birth to a boy called Stuart. Have a nice night,” she winked as she walked off, “And Anders, Robin will enjoy this,” she said, as she walked away.

Alex laughed awkwardly, I know he hates the fact that his private life is told to Cassy via me, who tells Robin, who tells- well, all the soldiers at work. Alex has several nicknames at work, and his latest one is “Sargent Rabbit”. I have a feeling after this that that name will be reinforced now.

“So, where were we?” He asked, depositing me on the bed, as I was still in his arms. We continued kissing and eventually went further. As he unclasped my bra I shuddered, because that reminded me of the lump that I’ve been avoiding. Bust Alex was very sweet, not looking at my chest once, not making me feel self-conscious at all.Screenshot-661

 ~*<3*~

Alex’s POV

I woke up at roughly 8 am. Thank goodness it was Saturday and Britney had morning classes at school, and Jones went out last night with Isabelle and only usually comes back in the afternoon after his visits there.

Luka was playing outside with the twins and was gonna take them out in a moment or two.

Ok. So finally, I’m alone.

Screenshot-662

“Why hello there, Sargent Rabbit.”

“Shut up, Moreno. I doubt you and Cassy are any different.”

Robin chuckled.

“Ok, fine. You’re right. So, you nervous, eh? Finally gonna POP THE BIG-“

“Shhh! Moreno! What if Cassy hears?!”

“She knows already.”

“What if she tells Natalie?”

“Anders, you have some warped view of women. They don’t tell each other everything, you know.”

Screenshot-665

“Uh huh. And that’s why my name at work is Sargent Rabbit.”

“Fair enough. But why on earth  would she tell Natalie? Cassy loves surprises. Especially her best friend’s face when she sees the engagement ring-“

“Moreno! Shut up! It’s on speaker and Natalie is here sleeping!”

“Relax, Anders. You can do it.  Who can do it? You can do it! Who’s the man? YOU’RE THE MAN! WOOOO! And if she says no, she’s crazy. She loves you, Anders.”

By now I was laughing so hard that I could just get a “bye Moreno” out before I hung up. Oh , this man knew how to make me laugh.

I suddenly heard a commotion from the door way and I put on a straight face as I realised it was Natalie, awake. I tried not to look at her in her underwear, that would be too much for me.

Screenshot-667

“’Morning, Sargent.”

I turned around and saw Natalie’s curvy body. She’d gained some weight after the twins, but it had gone to all the right places.

“H-hello.”

Did my stutter just come back?! This is not gonna he helping me when I want to ask her the question.

“The stutter?” She raised an eyebrow. “Now why has this come back all of a sudden?”

“Um…well…I want you to meet my parents and my little sis.”

Now, this wasn’t a lie. I did want Natalie to meet them, and this weekend I wanted them to meet her. And now was a perfect time to get my mind off the question I have to ask Natalie.

“How about tomorrow? I want to dye my hair today for my next baby. Then it’ll go to it’s original colour.”

I nodded.

Ok, whew. I have one more day to collect my thoughts.

One more day.

~*<3*~

Natalie’s POV

The visit from Alex’s parents was very quick as they were just passing through Lucky Palms on their trip to Appaloosa Plains. I concluded that their daughter Chloe was one surprise once Alex was off at college and Alex’s older brother, Terry, had gotten married.

They were very charming people, and when we compared Britney to Alex’s mom, Ramona, you could see their Barbie like resemblances. Chloe has her mom’s hair and father’s eye shape and eye colour, a piercing green that almost forced themselves into your mind.

Screenshot-669

And Alex and I were doing very well after that night. All seemed to be perfect in our relationship.

 

So that afternoon, I was busy sitting in the lounge when a song came on on the radio.

“Oh, her eyes, her eyes, make the stars look like they’re not shining
Her hair, her hair, falls perfectly without her trying
She’s so beautiful, and I tell her every day..”

Then Alex started singing along.

“Yeah, I know, I know, when I compliment her she won’t believe me
And it’s so, it’s so, sad to think that she don’t see what I see
But every time she asks me do I look ok, I say
When I see your face, there’s not a thing that I would change
Cause you’re amazing, just the way you are
And when you smile, the whole world stops and stares for a while
Because girl you’re amazing, just the way you are(yeah)”

“Alex…” I said, smiling as he pointed at me.

”Her lips, her lips, I could kiss them all day if she let me
Her laugh, her laugh, she hates but I think it’s so sexy
She’s so beautiful, and I tell her every day
Oh, you know, you know, you know, I’d never ask you to change
If perfect’s what you’re searching for then just stay the same
So, don’t even bother asking if you look ok
You know I’ll say
When I see your face, there’s not a thing that I would change
Cause you’re amazing, just the way you are”

“I love you,” I said, touched.

“And when you smile, the whole world stops and stares for a while
Because girl you’re amazing, just the way you are
The way you are, the way you are.Screenshot-668

“When I see your face, there’s not a thing that I would change
Cause you’re amazing, just the way you are
And when you smile, the whole world stops and stares for a while
Cause girl you’re amazing, just the way you are.”

His face was close to mine, but he didn’t kiss me. It wasn’t the right moment to. It was too intimate.

“Natalie…”

“Yeah?” I said.

“Marry me.”

As his words were out I felt the intimacy over, surprisingly. He had crossed a line that was guarded by me.

I had the words ready in my head to respond, but this word came out:

“No.”

He looked shocked, his turquoise eyes filled with tears. He pulled away from me and stormed out.

“Alex! Wait!”

With no response I heard him whip out his phone in our bedroom.

“You were wrong, Moreno,” He sobbed, “She doesn’t love me.”

The Only Way Is Lucky Palms- Babies 18, 19 and 20

Dear diary,

 

Oh gosh, how much does time fly? It feels like just yesterday I was reading her to sleep, her eyes blinking at me, her first words, the first time I saw the strands of golden hair on her head.

“She’s got my mom’s hair,” Alex whispered, his arms circling around mine, planting a kiss on my cheek. She has Alex’s blue eyes as well.

She looks like Barbie.

And this time, when I held her in my arms I did not feel the usual relief, the usual “Oh gosh, another one done …. how many more?” I felt happiness, joy, and most of all…Love.

Now don’t get me wrong, I love all my kids, but actually loving the person you had the child with is a different story.

For example, who remembers Joe and the quads? I hate to say, but if I did love Joe I had a screw loose.

Screenshot-608

Oh my , when I look at these pictures from so long ago I want to cry. My baby girl is growing up Sad smile

Screenshot-609

Then, as her spindly legs began to grow, so did her personality…

Screenshot-626

Screenshot-632

She was insistent that she had an “imaginary friend”. I was worried, a lot, as she began to get more and more insistent that there was something there. I was told by my friends to brush it off, but…

I got a little worried when she started telling herself : “Don’t worry, Jelly Bean, I’ll just get this mix done and you can be real!”

Screenshot-634

Meanwhile, Alex was insistent that I get my cancer thing checked out by the specialist in the area. I was dreading talking to her, though . I was still in that dream state where I believed that it wasn’t real, this was some twisted, sick joke…

But it wasn’t. It was real, and I just needed to realize it.

Oh, and Jones is telling me that he’s brining his girlfriend over in five minutes. Gotta make a good impression for my buddy, this is his first girlfriend since Rosa. Bye!

~*<3*~

Dear diary,

Oh my gosh. I’m lying here, on my bed, shaking with shock. You’ll never guess what just happened. So I suppose I’ll have to tell you.

So Jones and his stunning girlfriend, Isabelle, Chloe Moreau’s cousin, came round.

Screenshot-587

After some introductions conversation flowed smoothly. Feeling left out I went to go call the doctor who’s gonna check out my cancer.

Screenshot-589

Screenshot-588

The Isabelle’s phone rang.

She gave me an awkward smile.

Isabelle is the woman who is dating my best friend, and will be checking out my bruised, cancerous breasts.

***

I was lucky that I was allowed to have our appointment right then and there, I would have passed out otherwise from stress.

“So, you’re pregnant right now, eh?”

Screenshot-591

“Yes.”

I may not have mentioned this but I got pregnant with my next child. His name is Magenta Crayola.

Screenshot-405

“Then I can’t perform the tests on you right now, Natalie. But maybe as soon as you give birth, ok? This man you went to did not go to any special college, he went to what I call a “Mickey Mouse College”. Very easy to succeed.”

I breathed out a sigh of relief.

Maybe I’m just over-reacting, diary, but it’s just so strange!

~*<3*~

Dear diary,

Well, if this hasn’t been the busiest while ever. I’m going to rush this.

Screenshot-638

I had my son, Luka.

Then I got pregnant ASAP.

Screenshot-627

The next dad ^_^

Screenshot-651

Alex- so helpful when I’m giving birth >.>

Screenshot-650

Screenshot-654

Rosalie has my hair, her father’s lips and eyes. She’s adorable.

Screenshot-653

Rogan has his dad’s face shape, lips, eyes, hair- basically his everything!

So after the birth of the twins I was so exhausted that I went to bed, closed my eyes and began to dream.

I was walking through my childhood, growing older and older as the years went by. I passed my childhood with Jones, my graduation…my parent’s wedding…I was progressing so quickly I wanted to cry, to stay in that era forever.

I eventually stepped into the future and I saw two girls fighting. One girl clearly had Alex’s eyes, hair , face shape but my lips and nose. The girl next to her had Jones’ grey eyes and eye shape, and my hair. They were arguing.

“Mom loves me more!”

“She loves me more!”

“Choose one! Choose one, mom!”

Screenshot-655

I woke up before I made the decision. I was so shocked. Why would I have a child with Jones in the first place if I had no feelings for him? And the daughter with Alex wasn’t Britney.

I was so confused, I didn’t know what to think.

Besides from the fact that I know that I have a strong gut instinct I like both Jones and Alex.

Very much.

Let’s call it a …love square?

Jones’ POV

I stared at Isabelle in the fading light. Ever since I had been set up on this blind date by a well meaning Cassy, I had been dreading it. Apparently Cassy had told her mother about my “forever alone” status, who told her best friend Chloe about it, who found a date for me. According to Cassy, Isabelle was Chloe’s mother’s niece.

I will never understand women.

Isabelle returned the stare with her huge blue eyes and long batting eyelashes. If it wasn’t for the fact that five minutes earlier she had told me she was a doctor, specialising in breast cancer, I would have thought she was an airhead.

“So, what do you do Jones?”

“I’m a politician,” I said. This was off-putting for many. Who wants to be the girlfriend of a politician who’s constantly on the news and constantly in a bad light because his best friend, and the woman who he lives with, has 16 babies? Surprisingly, Isabelle didn’t bat an eyelid.

“What’s a Republican like you doing in such a Democrat place like Lucky Palms?”

“Who said I was Republican?”

“Aren’t you?”

“Well… I’m a democrat, but I have some Republican ideas. Like pro gay marriage, but anti abortion.”

 

Screenshot-570

“I see. Clever Idea.”

“Yeah.”

I could feel my cheeks turning bright red as I felt her gaze on me again.

“I have a gift for you,” I said, standing up quickly. I pulled out the flowers, and a look of sheer delight popped onto her face.

Screenshot-572

“That looks lovely!” She exclaimed. I felt so happy and excited that she was pleased. I hadn’t felt this way since-

Naddy.

Oh, shut up Jones, Natalie’s over you and you are over her. She has Alex now. And judging by the movie and dinner before this… I have Isabelle.

The loo of delight didn’t move from her face.

She bent forward to whisper in my ear.

“I’ve had a great time. You’re a lovely man. I can’t wait to get to know you better.”

Screenshot-576

Then she bent back and almost cowered away from me.

So maybe she doesn’t like me.

Screenshot-574

Suddenly her mouth touched mine and I felt that spark. Once her lips moved away from mine, I wanted to take her face in my hands and pull her closer to me for another one.

But I didn’t, I let her walk away, I let the smile stay on my face.

I hadn’t felt so good since I was a young boy.

Before my childhood.

~*<3*~

Natalie’s POV

Chris decided to grow up before the birth of his child.

Screenshot-578

Screenshot-579

And Jamie didn’t want to be stuck alone.

Then it was time for Robert and Panda.

Robert

Screenshot-577

Panda. His outfit >.<

Screenshot-582

But my babies decided to grow up twice. I can’t blame them, Alex is so busy with the army as he is a sargent, and me…well, I’m too busy getting pregnant to pay much attention.

Screenshot-583

Panda *_*

Screenshot-584

Robert.

Have you ever felt like you’re at cross roads in life? You feel like you want to do something…but you can’t.

I don’t feel like I can go on.

Argh, I know I only have 16 babies but I honestly have had no recipients for fathers for my challenge. With no dads= no babies. Come on, you know the birds and the bees.

So I was moaning to Alex one day about this when he said, “I can do it.”Screenshot-586

“The 100 baby challenge?”

“No, I can be your next father my ladybug.”

I hesitated. I wanted to refrain from that for awhile after that whole Adrian drama. But before I could stop them, the words spluttered out my mouth enthusiastically. “Yes!! Please!”

He laughed.

“Sure, Mrs Windfield. I’m ready to have a child with you.”

~*<3*~

“Ready for work, Sargent ?” I said, balancing Alex’s hat on his head and giving him a smile. He just grinned at me.

“Ready as I’ll ever be, my ladybug.” He said softly and gave me a small peck. “And I’m ready for you too, little one!” He rubbed my stomach and then looked up at me.

“I love you Natalie.”Screenshot-595

“I love you too, Alex. Or should I say Sargent Anders?”

“Alex will be ok,” He chuckled. “Time to go see Moreno. Since apparently Keenan just disappeared.”

“What, Guy just left?”

“Yeah. He was the one to introduce me into the army in the first place. Though he started to get a little strange, I’ll admit. He went from being all tough to…mush. He never get over that one girl…I can’t remember her name now. But she seriously affected him.”

“Well…when you see Robin, tell him to tell Cassy that I’m sorry. And congrats on their son.”

“Ok,” He said softly.

I kinda knew our friendship was over when she didn’t tell me she was pregnant. But I have to get her back as a friend. She’s my BFF, my other half.

I sat down and thought, as soon as Alex left. I love Lilly and Chris and I can’t wait to hear about the baby, but it’s obvious she wanted to exclude me from the baby.

I got an email for Chris and Jamie’s graduation.

When I arrived, I was late and and the graduates were already filing out and I felt so sorry I was late.

Then I saw Lilly. In an oversized gown to hide her baby bump.

“Hi, Natalie,” she smiled at me.

“Hi Lilly! How are you? How’s the baby?”

“Well, i found out it’s a boy,” she smiled.

Screenshot-602

“Oh, good for you! I’m gonna be a grandma!”

“Yes,” She smiled weakly. “You will.”

Screenshot-604

Of course, I just had to go into labour at the graduation. Thank you Murphy, and your stupid law.

Rushing to the hospital (and Alex was called) I started to push. This was the most agonizing birth ever. The most painful. The most worth it.

And I realised that I truly love Alex and vice versa when he held my hand, encouraged me to squeeze it, as he wiped beads of sweat off my forehead, when his face kept a steady smile as I screamed and called his name. The way he picked up my baby, my beautiful baby girl, Britney, and calling her “as beautiful as her mommy.”

I love him so much. More than words can describe.

And no-one, no thing, no outer force, busybody, rumour- nothing will ever change that.Screenshot-607

~*<3*~

I have never mentioned it but Natalie has 2 pet unicorns, and they had a foal. Her name is Yasmin and you can claim her by commenting on this post.

Screenshot-617

Thanks for reading!

Are you kidding me, Chris, are you kidding me?

This post is voted PG. So, you’ll need to hold someone’s hand. ( swearing.)

I was washing dome dishes just before Cassy and Lilly’s visit. Lilly was a bubbly 15 year old. My boys were excited to see her. They hadn’t seen her since they were friends in sixth grade.

Screenshot-544

Cassy was going to meet Alex again, the new, improved, confident Alex . I was slightly stressing about that. Maybe she’d hate him…I wasn’t sure. But at least Jones was out of the house today, on a blind date. The date seemed pretty nice, her name was Isabelle.

“Mom?” I whipped my head around to see Chris and Jamie smiling at me. “When’s Lilly coming?”

“They should be here right now,” i said, putting the last dish on the rack. “Oh yes, they’re here.”

Screenshot-545

I heard Chris and Jamie take in a breath as they saw Lilly in all her glory. She had a perplexed smile on her face. Jamie was the first to greet her.

Screenshot-547

“Hey, Lilly, it’s , um, James. I mean Jamie.”

“Hi Jamie. Hey wait, it’s Chris!”

Chris came running over and engulfed Lilly in a hug.

“Put me down, you goof!” She laughed, and Chris laughed as well. Jamie interrupted.

‘Hey, why don’t we go have a swim?”

Lilly nodded and Chris said sure, and i closed the door and went to go greet my BFF.

Chris’ POV

I dived into the water and I could already feel the chlorine sting my eyes. I pulled myself up and i saw Lilly sitting there, hesitating to get in.

“Come on!” I yelled.

Screenshot-548

“I don’t really want to swim…can we go inside?” Lilly asked. I nodded a sure and we got out, leaving Jamie to swim.

Once Lilly had gotten dressed she walked into my room and we started to talk.

“Hey, remember when we were just eight years old, starting out at school?” She said.

“Yeah. I remember peeing my pants with you watching.”

“And i remember laughing,” She laughed. I smiled at her and there was this silence. She edged closer to me.

I edged closer to her.

Screenshot-564

Her lips found mine suddenly and unexpectedly. I pulled her closer to me and kissed her more, more and more, realising the passion I never knew I had.

She suddenly pushed me against the bed and I realised where this was going to go. Did I care?

No.

Screenshot-566

“Are you sure?’ I asked her softly.

“Yes.” She said. “Yes. I am.”

Then I lost my mind and showed her I truly loved her, my little friend from second grade. My love.

Screenshot-555

Afterwards, once we were lying down, her asleep and me cradling her in my arms, I head a commotion from the door. It was Jamie.

“Oh my f-“

“Jamie!’ I jumped up. “Hi!”

‘You effing slept with her?! You SLEPT with her?”

Screenshot-556

“No! I didn’t! Calm down, bro!”

Screenshot-558

“Oh well. i just see what comes first in your life. I don’t mind anyway. i’ll never get a girl.” Said Jamie.

Screenshot-559

“Jamie-“

“Just leave me alone.”

He stormed out the room and I was alone besides a sleeping Lilly. Alone with my thoughts.

And my guilt.

~*<3*~

Natalie’s POV

“Cassy! Cassy! Cassy!”

Screenshot-553

“Nattie! Nattie!!!!! Oh gosh, I’ve missed you…”

Alex appeared by the doorway.

“Oh, hello, Alex,” She said. I could tell she was aching for the infamous Alex stutter.

“Why, hello, my dear Cassandra. How is Robin? Still surviving with you?”

“Yes, he is.” She said, slightly gobsmacked.

“Ah, good. I se you and my baby have greeted eachother?”

“Yes,” She said, wolf-whistling when Alex held my hands. She knows a couple in love.

Screenshot-551

After a long chat, I finally said goodbye to my best friend. She smiled at me  one last time before mouthing, “I’m MoH at your wedding to Alex.”

~*<3*~

Several months later I had no news from Cassy or Lilly. I was getting slightly worried. Until one day, when Cassy just appeared on my doorstep.

“Hi, Cas, how are-“

“Let me at him. I am going to kill that fucking idiot!”

I stood back in shock for a second.

“Who? Cassy, calm down.”Screenshot-568

“Your idiot of a son! That selfless and stupid bastard! Get him here now! Get Chris here!”

“Don’t you talk about my son about that, you bitch! What on earth did he ever do to you?”

She let out a dry, throaty laugh.

“What did he do? What did he do?” her voice was dangerously low. “Look at my daughter! Now do you know what the eff he did.”

Alex let out a gasp.

Screenshot-569

I stared at Lilly for a second. I need not look any longer.

Screenshot-567

Lilly was clearly pregnant.

Change- and babies 14, 15 and 16

First things first is that Natalie had a baby with the smexy Logan Fey, her name is June ^_^ Read about Natalie’s pregnancy here : http://lfeysbabychallenge.blogspot.com/2012/09/chapter-11-this-may-be-hi-everyone-to.html

So that means that Natalie is on baby 14 ! Yay! So that is… 86 more babies to go –___–

Anyway, I also did a poll sorta thing in 100 Baby Challenge Moms (the facebook group) and many people said that they want more about the kids. So I’ve taken your advice and I think this post has it’s fair share of kids stuff. Don’t worry, this isn’t all of the kids things I’m gonna do.

The next thing is that Natalie has gotten a makeover. Nothing much, just a default platinum blond. The black roots is what the hair gives her. I’m sorry, next time I will give warning to when I will dye her hair in advance. I like this hair colour on her, so she’ll keep it for awhile.

Last but not least is a small thanks to everyone:

-Amy, my editor. Hugs all around. Red heart

-Ashby Lemi, without you I wouldn’t even have Jones and my story would be pathetic. I find you a close friend of mine and you always have time to listen to my ideas and to have someone to bounce my ideas off. Thanks, I can’t express how thankful I am. Red heart

– Loren- you constantly make me laugh (as well as Logan Fey >.< ) and the both of you light up my world so much. And Loren, you don’t want my hair Red heart 

– Kurtis, you are an awesome British guy and you helped me with my story. Thanks so so so much Red heart

Ok, that’s it. Sorry it was so long!

Now, onto the story.

~*<3*~

Change is never desirable.  I had changed – my hair, my attitude, my loves, my life…and still I find it undesirable. I had this one moment when I washed out all the dye in my hair and i had a panic attack, wishing nothing had changed and that I was still a child- then I realised my pathetic childhood and went back to normal after Logan’s challenge. I have been kinda…well, “emotionally unstable” since and I’ve been having the Adrian nightmares. Adrian coming to me, grabbing Blossom out my arms and ripping off her baby head just like I think he did to that woman…the woman who was his wife.

Before I realised it I was screaming. Jones ran over to me and shook me, shook me until I woke up. I cried in his arms, my tears pouring out with guttural sobs. He patted my hair, and whispered “There there”. That was our silent apology to eachother.

So now, we’re friends again.

“Natalie, the kids are growing up!” Jones yelled. I got up and walked to the living room.

Jamie growing up ^_^

A big growth spurt!

Then it was time for Chris.

Screenshot-506

He seemed to have a strong feeling that he had “swag”. I laugh at that term and I can’t say someone has swag when they have alien pants on and cry to mommy when Jamie pulls his hair.

Soon after, Jamie sat us down.

Screenshot-508

“Mom, Jones, can I ask you something?”

“Sure, Jamie,” I said, half listening.

“I just want to know if we can go on a family trip somewhere. I’m really bored here at home and at school and I just want to…go.”

“I’m fine with it, if your mother is.”

Jones looked over at me.

Screenshot-502

“I don’t mind.” I said, half reading the final Hunger Games book, “Mockingjay”.

“Now,” Jones said, “Where to?”

Screenshot-507

“I know!” Jamie yelled. “China!”

“China?” I laughed. But the look on Jamie’s face was serious.

‘Sure. China. if Jones agrees,” I said.

“China it is,” he smiled. Just then, after a few hugs from Jamie , the doorbell rang.

I smiled as I saw who it was.

“Alex!” i smiled and pulled him in for a hug.

Screenshot-510

“Wow, you look beautiful today,” he said. Then Jamie ran up and gave him a fist bump and Chris nodded at him.

He stared at me for a second, smiled, then pulled me in for another hug.

Screenshot-511

“I’ve missed you,” he said.

OK, stop right there. In case you’re wondering, Alex and I are dating. Dating as in we-are-taking-things-so-slow-that-we-haven’t-even-kissed-yet. Yes. And I don’t intend to go further  than that for awhile.

“I’ve missed you too.” Then I pulled him into a deeper hug.

Jones’ POV

“So, Jones, why are you not annoyed with Alex?”

Screenshot-514
I looked at Chris, one of Natalie’s most honest children. He had this concerned frown and eyes that saw everything. I just love this guy.
“No, I’m not.”

Screenshot-517
“Why? He’s handsome and mom clearly loves him, not you. Why not hate him?”
I stifled a laugh.
“No, Chris, I don’t love your mother or hate Alex.”
He glared at me.
“I know when you’re lying, Jones Lemi.”

Screenshot-515

I laughed.

“Come one, little guy, let’s go see where we can go in China, ok?”

“Don’t you dare “little guy” me, Jones,” he said, but he allowed me to open the computer and ask his opinion with no grumbling.

“Oh Natalie, I’ve found the perfect accommodation. 3 bathrooms, 3 bedrooms for 4 people.”

“4?” she said to me. “That’s too little.” She laughed.

“Natalie, it is perfect. Are you okay…?” i asked.

“Of course I’m ok Jones, but there are five of us going to China.”

“Five?” I wrinkled up my nose. “Me, the twins and you. 4, Natalie, 4.”

“No,” she said as Alex kissed her on the cheek. “5. You forgot Alex.”

Back to Natalie’s POV

“Are we there yet?”

“Jamie, we aren’t even out of the driveway. We are not there yet.” I said.

Screenshot-523

But soon, we were there. Just for two days of family bonding time.

Yeah, right.

By the time we were down to China after the long plane flight, chris and Jamie were fighting over a soccerball and Jones and Alex had not spoken since. I was on the verge of breakdown as we reached the scholar’s garden.

Screenshot-525

I stood on the bridge and watched Jamie look through a telescope and Chris yelling at tourists for taking his seat. I only realised Alex was next to me after about a minute.

“Hi,” he said.

“Hey.”

“So, how do you like China?”

“I don’t know. It’s pretty, but I miss home tons.”

“Already?”

“Already.”

“What do you miss about it the most?”

“You.”

‘Me? I’m here, my lovely!”

“No, but your affection isn’t. I used to feel like a teenager around you. But here-“

Suddenly he blocked off my words with a kiss. I sunk into his kiss. This was a kiss of chemistry…one wnt to return.

Screenshot-526

“Oh my, you’ve made me feel like a teen!” I giggled, jumping into his arms.

Screenshot-534

Then the kids took the warning and we headed home. Screenshot-527

I felt worried as  soon as we got back.

I hadn’t gotten a response from Doctor Brant about the lump- I was seriously worried. Once everyone had gone to bed, I sat there, staring into space, hoping, praying , willing that it wasn’t cancerous.

“Hey,” a voice said, and I looked up to see it as Alex’s.

“Hey,” i said, switching on the radio and a favourite song of ours came on.

‘Wanna dance?” he asked me. I smiled at him.

“Sure.”

Screenshot-529

“So, why couldn’t you sleep?” Alex asked me.
”I have no response from Doctor Brant, besides a text to ‘call him’. I don’t know what to think… I don’t think  it’s cancerous.”

“Then it isn’t .” He said easily.

“I hope so,” I said.

Baby, tonight’s the night I let you know
Baby, tonight’s the night we lose control
Baby, tonight you need that, tonight believe that
Tonight I’ll be the best you ever had

I don’t wanna brag, but I’ll be
The best you ever had

I don’t wanna brag, but I’ll be
The best you ever had.

“Night, my love,” Alex said after giving me a soft kiss.

“Night babes.” I walked to bed and eventually slept. And dreamt.

Of Adrian.

Screenshot-535

“Come closer my love. Closer. Now pass me your child, I won’t harm her.”

“Yes, you will. You will. you’ll kill her!”

“I won’t I swear…”

I passed him Blossom and he inspected her.

“Nice body, legs, hands and..neck.”

Before I could stop him his teeth found her neck and started to pull her neck off. I was paralysed as he took her neck and clicked it horrifyingly. His teeth then pulled harder, harder, until blood spurted out. Her legs began to spasm, he beautiful baby legs dancing to her death. A trickle of blood came off his lip and he licked it.

“Oh, this is good.”

He continued to bite away her neck bit by bit. He moaned as if he was eating a foreign delicacy.  Eventually he had bitten away her whole neck, all that remained a bloody, pulpy mess that once was her baby body.

He pulled up her head.

“And, I forgot to say, nice face.”

I woke up screaming. I couldn’t say here, I can’t.

Screenshot-536

“Mom!” Chris shouted from behind the door. “Are you ok?”

“No, my sons, just go pack, please,” I sobbed. “I’m leaving here.”

~*<3*~

I got back home and discovered I was pregnant with the next dad’s child. His name is Blu Crayola.

And soon enough, i gave birth.

Robert.

With the twins resting I finally called up Doctor Brant.

“Hello, it’s natalie Windfield here. I’m calling in regards to the lump?”

“Um, yes. Ma’am, we got the results back.”

“W-what is it?”

“Postive. Ma’am, I’m sorry, but you have breast cancer.”

~*<3*~

Hidden Springs Chapter 2- I think I may be coming down with something…insanity, maybe?

“Please, just hurry up!”

The words escaping my lips weren’t as you would have thought it to be, they weren’t angry, or loud. They were stifled by the fact I could feel tears forming and I wanted to sob. They were quiet, too.

“Don’t worry, ma’am.” The taxi driver said softly. He knew that I was heading to “the clinic” so I had a right to be distressed.

But then, why am I distressed? I had calmed down my mother, Addy, Ashby, all telling them the lump was non-cancerous. Oh, who am I trying to fool? Myself? because it isn’t working.

Screenshot-482

The taxi slowed down and I stared out to the clinic. it was nothing scary, just what looked like a normal house. I was slowly opening the door, ready to face my fears, when the taxi driver placed his knarled  hand on my shoulder.

“Hey, ma’am, remember, whatever results you get in here, I care about you. And everything will be ok.”

I felt tears threaten my vision at the simplicity of a stranger’s love. I nodded, and he smiled at me sympathetically, and drove off. I only realised a minute after he had driven off that he had given me a free drive here.

I sat down in the waiting room as I arrived, and the doctor said he’d see me soon. I nodded  at him, and sat on the ledge of a chair and glared at the other waiting patient.

Alex.

Screenshot-485

Noticing my bored but curious look, he explained to me,

“I’m waiting for my mom.”

“Ah.”

Awkward silence. He wasn’t supposed to know I had a lump. Maybe… maybe I’m waiting for my mom! Maybe I’m waiting for Cassy! Yeah! There we go, a nice ex-

“Miss Windfield, please fill in this form, describing your lump etc. Doctor Brant will ask you to elaborate.”

Plan aborted.

After the silence besides a pen flying across the page, Alex spoke up and said,

“Look, Natalie, i’m really sorry. I really like you and I don’t want it to be this way, seriously.”

“Look, Alex, you came across as an arrogant pig. I liked you. I really did.”

“But I’ve changed!” He said earnestly. “I’m serious, I have! Look, I’m not even stuttering! it just worries me, Natalie, that a pretty face like yours is available for the whole world and not just mine…”

Screenshot-484 

Oh, shoot. Just me. he has to just go become this charming hunk of a guy in two minutes. Yay for my heart, which is letting me down and pumping hard and I think I’m blushing.

“Oh really now?” I say, the scowl not moving from my lips.

Screenshot-485

“yes, really, Natalie. I really like you, as i just said. Hey, make my day and kiss me, why don’t cha?”

I laughed.

Screenshot-486

“Oh, here’s Doctor Brant. Must be for my mom.” he stood up and I immediatley regained my scowl.

Screenshot-487

“No,” the doctor said. “I’m looking for Natalie. your mom is going to be staying here for some further tests. Nothing to worry about. Come with me, Natalie.”

I walked into a comfortable room. it looked more like a holiday cottage, not a clinic for women with breast cancer or suspected breast cancer.

“Lie as still as possible.” He asked me and I did, closing my eyes.

Screenshot-490

Screenshot-491

“Now, please tell me if you feel uncomfortable, ok?” I nodded.

He prodded at the spot where the lump was. I jumped as he first touched me, but I slowly calmed down.

Screenshot-492

He then asked me to take off my shirt. I took it off gingerly, and I could see him stifle a gasp as he saw my bruised chest. But he examined the lump and said to me,

“I don’t know what it is. i have some suspicions, but I think we should meet up again. ok?”

“O-okay.”Screenshot-493

I slowly got up and pulled on my shirt and went down to the lobby.

Alex was there.

“So, how about a date?” he asked. I smiled at him, in an oddly manner and said, “Starting over..sure.”

Screenshot-494

He pulled me into a kiss before I could object.

“N-naddy? I-I came to see how you were doing but I see it’s something else…”

I swung around to see Jones there, a look of hurt on his face.

“Hi, Jonesie,” I said, putting my arm around him.

“How could you?” He sobbed, pushing me off him. “Natalie…how?’

But…if he thinks I’m cheating…I said it was a one night stand thing! Frustration boiled up and my lid popped off.

“Get over yourself, jones! It was a one night stand! Nothing else! Get over it! I’m your best friend, not your lover. People do stupid things sometimes. And that night was one of them! you’re a grown man! It’s over! Oh wait, it isn’t…because it never happened!”

Screenshot-495

He stared at me, for a second, then ran out.

I knew I shouldn’t feel like this – I possibly had breast cancer, my mother is pregnant, I just blew up at my best friend, but-

I felt oddly calm.
