If You Ever Come Back–Baby 24

“I’ll be going now…” Alex said slouching his shoulders and taking his long, muscular legs and tuning them towards the door. But his shoulders and body was stuck there.Screenshot-737

“No!” I yelled, and only after the words had escaped my lips I realised what I had just said. That was basically saying “Yes Alex, of course you can stay and we will have lots of little blue eyed babies who stutter and I’m sorry I rejected you and yes I will marry you and Cassy is the best friend ever.”

Cassy told me that’s what I was basically saying.

Ok, I don’t think I’ll take relationship advice from her again.



I turned my head around to see Alex II, staring at me with a look of shock on his face.


I couldn’t help but chuckle at him in his cowboy outfit.

“Mom…” he said, his voice cracking, “Who is this?”


Alex doesn’t know who his dad is.

“It’s your father, Alex. Alex II, meet Alex I.”

He stared at Alex, glaring at him. Alex was elated to be staring at his son and positively beamed.

Alex reached out his hand so shake Alex II’s hand, but he declined it and ran away.

Alex had tears forming in his eyes. I couldn’t blame him. His son hated him.

“Come on,” I said, putting my arm around him.

“We have a lot of catching up to do.”


6 months later

I had my baby girl, from the same dad. Her name is Felicity.


“Come on Isabelle, time to get up,” I shook her. “It’s your wedding day!”

She hopped out of bed and smiled, showing her perfect white teeth.

“Oh my gosh!! Can you do my makeup for me? Please?”

“Sure,” I laughed.

“But wait,” She said, her face crinkled up in distraught, “Who will walk me down the aisle?”

Isabelle was going to have 2 weddings, one here in Moonlight Falls and one in Sunlit Tides with her family (Chloe, her mom, dad …) as well as Jones’ family such as Seely and his step dad Asher and  their twins, Yasmin and Asher II. They were too young for the party I had planned for them.

“…Alex!” I said, and was shocked I had even said it. I don’t even think she likes him.

“Ok,” she sighed. “I’m desperate. “ She stared at herself in the mirror, and I said to her,

“Let’s do it.”


In three hours I had transformed Isabelle into a princess. Then she did me, and I think I looked ok.

Then we got her into her dress, and gosh… I wished I was her. She glowed.

As we got out in front of our house, where the wedding was held, the wedding march began to begin almost straight away.




Ashby watched from the side lines and tears formed in her eyes. Her little boy was getting married.


The ceremony began.

“I, Jones Lemi, promise to cherish our marriage, in sickness and in health- but wouldn’t I do that, and haven’t I all the time? I love you, Isabelle Carter. I will always love you. You make me feel special- not just special, but a man who has a purpose. A man who is wanted, someone who needs me besides my mom… So not only do I promise to cherish you, in good times, bad times, and all the times in between, I promise to be there for you. I promise to make our lives as close to a fairy tale as possible.And if it isn’t, that’s ok. Because you are my fairy tale, Isabelle Rachel Carter.”


“I, Isabelle Rachel Carter, take you Jones Lemi, to be my lawful husband. I do this because I love you, I always have and I always will. I didn’t prepare any vows because a vow of love to me is not simply writing a bunch of impersonal stuff on a card and reciting it. My vow is spontaneous, just like our love is. We aren’t normal. We are crazy, insane- you name it. I have never been so in love. That’s why I do, yes, I do, I take you as my husband, Jones Lemi.”


They looked at eachother for a moment, and kissed.

They were now man and wife.

We all had a blast at the reception.


“Hal-le-luuuuuuuiah, Halleluiah,” sand Ashby and Jones on the karaoke.

Their first dance song was “For The First Time” by The Script.


But we’re gonna start by
Drinking old cheap bottles of wine,
Sit talking up all night,
Saying things we haven’t for a while
A while, yeah
We’re smiling but we’re close to tears,
Even after all these years,
We just now got the feeling that we’re meeting for the first time

“Let’s dance,” Alex said to me.


“Sure,” I replied.

Jones and Isabelle looked so in love.


“Can I tell you something, Natalie?”

“Sure, Alex.”

“I love you.”

We’re smiling but we’re close to tears,
Even after all these years,
We just now got the feeling that we’re meeting, for the first time

    I’m glad Isabelle doesn’t like Alex either, I AM NOT ALONE.
