23. Can We Talk

I walked over to her to pick her up, but Harry beat me to it. He scooped her up in his arms and kissed her forehead. "Of coarse I want you princess. I want you more than anything in the world." I watched them together. As much as I hated to admit it, it looked like Harry actually cared about her. I then inspected Harry. He looked horrible; his hair was a knotted mess, his stubble was unshaven, his under eyes were dark and puffy. I was pulled out of my thoughts by my daughters voice. "Momma, can I pway wiff daddy?" She looked at me with her big green eyes as her hand subconsciously played with her fathers hair. I knew this wasn't a good idea, I wanted to protect Talia from Harry, so he couldn't hurt her like he hurt me. Before I had the chance to respond, Harry spoke. "Please Sarah. Can I just spend the day with her?" I contemplated in my head. Should I, or should I not? I looked at Harry. "Please" he begged me. "Fine. But only today." I walked into the livingroom as Harry and Talia squealed with joy. Am I being a horrible person? Keeping Talia away from her dad? Or letting her get hurt by him? Either way, I'm doing something wrong.

~Time Skip~

I spent the day pacing around the house, waiting for Harry and Talia to come back home. I was so worried. So many things were running through my mind. Harry and I both knew, that Talia would want to see her father more than one time; she'd want him in her life. Finally, I heard the front door open, and giggles fill the house. I greeted Talia and Harry in the kitchen, where I saw she had a whole new outfit, a "happy birthday" balloon, and new toys. I also noticed something around her neck. Talia was overly excited- I had never seen her that happy in my life. "Momma! Look wuh daddy got me!" She showed me each one of her toys, telling me about how daddy got her toys, took her to the park, and got her ice-cream. She finally brought up the object around her neck. "Momma! I got a new neckwace!" Talia lifted the chain so I could get a better look. Her necklace had two things hanging off of it; a ring and a locket. The ring looked all to familiar to me. It was a promise ring Harry had given to me for Christmas one year. I felt a surge of pain as I knew Harry would break his promises to Talia as he did to me. I then looked at the little gold locket. I opened it, only to find the picture of Harry and I at Buffalo Wild Wings. After seeing it, all if the memories of Harry and I came flooding back. I shook them away and smiled at my girl. It is time to go to bed, princess, you need to get your beauty sleep." I was about to pick her up, but her arms latched onto Harry's leg. "Can daddy put me to night-night?" I smiled. I couldn't break my baby's heart. Harry already made her so happy. "Sure, sweetie" Harry led Talia up the stairs, and took her into her room. I tip-toed up stairs, curious to watch them together. Harry left the door open a little so I could seer them perfectly. I saw Harry tuck Talia into bed, and he told her how much he loved her. He told her that they would always be together. He told her that he wouldn't make any more mistakes, and that he would do anything for her. He then told her how much he missed being with me. A tear rolled down my cheek. This is the Harry I fell in love with. The Harry that I missed so much. The Harry that means everything to me. He gave Talia a kiss, and opened the food to see me standing there, crying. "Can we talk?" He asked while closing Talia's door. I looked him in the eyes and nodded. I followed him out onto the balcony. Once we sat down, there was an awkward silence. Until Harry spoke. "Sarah, I want to apologize. For everything. I know I have said this again and again, but this time I mean it. You have no idea how bad things are without you, without Talia. She is the sweetest little girl and I love her so much. I love you so much. Won't you just give me another chance?" I remained silent for a few seconds, unsure of what to say. "I have given you so many chances Harry. Leaving was the best thing for Talia and I. I won't let her suffer because of you. I don't want you to cause her the pain you caused me. Harry looked so hurt. "Sarah, I am begging you. I will do anything!" I slowly shook my head. If I spoke, tears would erupt out of my eyes. I saw a few tears fall down Harry's face. "Just look me in the eyes, and tell me you don't love me, and I will be out of both of your lives forever." I looked into Harry's green orbs. They were filled with pain and sorrow. "I…" his tears started flowing. He looked as if he were about to break. "I can't." Harry looked up at me, as if my words gave him some hope. He pulled me into his arms and pressed his lips against mine. That moment when Harry kissed me, all of my feelings for him came back. All our memories, all the fun times together. I missed kissing him so badly. It felt so right. I still loved Harry. I pulled away from the kiss after a minute or two. Harry looked a lot happier, like a new him. "Harry this is your last chance. I still can't trust you. You have to earn it back. But Talia needs you." Harry had fireworks in his eyes. "Sarah, you will not regret this. I won't drink anymore. I will be the best dad I can. I will make this family work." And when he said that, I felt like I could believe him.
