Winter soon arrived and with it along came the snow. How had I ever forgotten about snow? Its wonderful!
However I never forgot about bump. As soon as I started feeling cold I went inside. I didn’t want to do anything that might hurt the baby.
Nick and I had also become really close. I thought of him as one of my best friends.
He was the only person (except for me) who ever felt the baby kick.
I had become very close to his daughter Taylor as well. She made me feel excited about becoming a mum. Maybe Taylor and my little one could be friends? There would only be three years between them.
Once though Nicholas did try to be more than friends…
I actually pushed him away. “I’m sorry Nick I can’t do this! I do like you but its just as a friend. I have too much on my mind to cope with a relationship as well. I’m sorry.”
Yeah Nick did make me laugh and I could even go an hour without thinking about him and every time I thought about him I smiled. And I guess his kiss DID give me butterflies. I’m Just not ready for a relationship.
Nick didn’t call me for a few weeks after I rejected him. Then when he did all he said was “come round my house in two hours” It was late January and it was my 17th Birthday. Nicholas has arranged a small party for me!
Well I say party It was just Nicholas, Taylor and myself. But it was great fun! We had pizza and Nick had even bought me presents! He bought me a beautiful silver necklace and a camera. The first thing I did was take a picture of him and Taylor!
Taylor was getting quite fussy so Nick took her upstairs to bed. I followed him however I immediately noticed the doll at the bottom of her bed. That Doll was from the Doctors and would be very special to Taylor as she grows up.
I rubbed my growing belly. I couldn’t wait for my little one to arrive. (I secretly hoped I was having a little girl)
When Nick had Taylor into bed I hugged him tightly. The butterflies returned in my stomach but I ignored them. “Thank you so much Nicholas.”
“Any time Erin. It killed me not talking to you these past few weeks.”
