Elizabeth went to the hospital alone. David wanted to come with her but she was too annoyed at him.
When she came out she was cradling her newborn son Aaron, in her arms.
Elizabeth loved being a mum. when she held her son, she had no idea how her mother could have abandonned her. how any mother could abandon her baby.
She brought Mittens to the bassinet to meet Aaron. “Mittens this is Aaron. He is mummy’s baby. you have to be nice to him always. Or mummy will get mad.” Mittens meowed in response.
Elizabeth stood watching her baby sleep until she heard a knock at the door.
“What are you doing here?” Elizabeth shouted. “I’m here to talk to you! look I know your annoyed but-”
“But nothing! I trusted you! I liked you! I even thought for a second I was-”
“Falling in love with you. I feel the same way Elizabeth. Suzie is 15.”
“15? ugh you are sicker than I thought!”
“No! She is my sister! She lives with me because our father is in prison.”
“Yes. I didn’t want to start a relationship because she needed me. Our mother died when she was young and when our Dad got done for assault a year ago I was the only person she had left. And it wasn’t fair on her to begin a relationship.”
“Suzie said that if I want to date you she is fine with it, although she does think you a bit too jealous.”
They cuddled closer on the sofa and began to watch a movie together
Things were beginning to get hot in the living room when…
“That’s Aaron crying” Elizabeth said getting up. David just smiled and kissed her cheek. “You see to Aaron and I’ll cook us some food.”
When the Mac and Cheese was finished, David went into the bedroom to see Elizabeth. She was passed out on the bed, cradling little Aaron in her arms
David put Aaron in the bassinet, removed Elizabeth’s shoes and covered her up and kissed her forehead before putting the Mac and cheese in the fridge and napping on the sofa.
