Justice. The door opens and sage steps in “You done sulking?” I don’t respond I just take a swig of my whisky. It’s been three weeks since my wife left me. Three long f-king weeks. “I think it’s time you get your head out of your ass moron” He says. I love sage, I love my friend, I really do but if he doesn’t get out I will kill him. He seats, seems he doesn’t know he is close to death right now. He seats quiet for a while before grabbing my whisky, My whisky, And taking a long swig. I just scowl at him, the fool smiles. “So when are you going to go get your wife?” I just scowl deeper. “You do know that even if you fold your face into a paper I won’t feel nothing” I just flip him the bird. “The middle finger, real mature” “What do you want Sage?” “What I want is for you to go get our sister and make her your wife again” “It’s not that simple Sage” “It’s that simple Justice, it’s that bloody simple, think about it, you are from a dead beat village, No knowledge of anything and by some miracle a rich guy falls for you and later you find out he kind of lied to you, You are rich and he was the first to know, Don’t you think you would find that suspicious?” “Don’t you think I have thought of that idiot?” I ask. “Then why are you still here? Why aren’t you going to her father’s mansion and dragging her back here?” “Sage, am scared” I say softly. “I know, trust me, she is nothing like Selene, although by a stroke of some f-ked up miracle they are sisters” “Ya think?” I ask mockingly. “Oh shut up idiot, just go get your girl, my wife can finally rest when you do” He says. “How’s julliet doing?” “Morning sickness, I feel for her” “Let her come visit sometime, ya?” He nods. “Just as soon as my mom let’s her breath away from the mothering” I chuckle, i trust Clare. “So you going?” “Hells yeah” “Then what are you waiting for?” I just smile . ****** Magic. “Are you ok?” My mom asks. I shake my head no. Am currently bent over my toilet, vomiting my innards out. Morning sickness is a vile thing. “Am sorry baby girl, I think it’s a boy, you didn’t give me this much problem when I had you, you were a calm child” I smile as I rinse my mouth. “Am sure any child of my husband will be this killer” She chuckles. I exit and lie on my bed. She strokes my head. “Do you want anything?” I nod. “Some ginger ale?” She smiles. “Coming right up” She says and exits the room. Well my room. It’s so big, it’s mine. I like it. I also like being mothered, my mom is cool. My sister not so much. She kind of believes that I stole her man and her child. Can you believe? I just think she is delusional. It’s been three weeks, three weeks I have had to think. I don’t think I did anything wrong bringing my fears to my husband. I just think I did wrong in accusing him that his love for me was nothing but a business decision. I miss him, God I miss him so much. He hasn’t come to me and am scared to go to him. What if he rejects me, what if he doesn’t want me anymore. I feel the familiar twinge of fear run through me. Am still a village girl, albeit a rich one. I sigh as a few drops of tears slip out of my eyes. My door opens and my mom steps in followed by ….. Justice? I sit up. “See who I found baby girl, I know you didn’t tell me or your father anything about your being at home, But I hope you can talk about it, ok?” She says and I nod, my eyes on my husband. Oh he looks so good. I missed him so much. Tears slip out, stupid hormones. My mom steps out after placing my drink on a table. He steps forward and I stand. He seems to be looking all over my face, almost like …. Almost like he missed me. “Magic……” “Justice……” We say at the Same time. What Happened next I still can’t believe. My powerful husband, all around proud man drops to his knees. I blink. “Magic, Magic, Magic” I kneel In front of him and he pulls me to him. “I missed you little bit” He says and tears rush to my eyes. “I missed you too” “Am so sorry baby, am sorry, I know how you felt, I know how it feels, please come back home, I promise try, please itty bitty” I nod. “Yes” “Yes?” I nod again.. “Oh thank God, I had plans of throwing you over my shoulder and taking you home if you didn’t forgive me” I giggle but it’s cut short when he kisses me. I kiss him back like my life depends on it. He breaks the kiss and nuzzles my neck. “I missed you baby” I sigh and kiss his head. “We missed you too baby” He frowns? “We?” Oops. I bring my mouth close to his ear. “Am pregnant” I say softly. He stiffens, I do too, isn’t he happy? “Magic….. you are?” I nod. He kisses me and holds me in an embrace. “I love you itty bitty Emilia Magic Maxwells” I laugh . “And I love you JJ” He laughs softly he kisses my head. “Let’s go home yeah?” I nod.
