28. Nothing Short Of A Miracle
"I love you." He whispered into my ear softly, causing my eyes to flutter shut. I felt him move and opened my eyes. He pulled something out of his pocket. "Will you please wear this once again? I don't want to lose you again and I want you to wear this on your finger as a symbol of my love and dedication to you, for the rest of your life." He opened his hand and there lay my engagement ring.
"I-I don't know.." I hesitated.
"Wha-what do you mean?" He had a worried look on his face.
"I don't know if I can trust you to not hurt me again, Harry." I said quietly, looking at my hands fiddling with each other.
"Oh." He paused for a second. I could tell he was disappointed. I looked up to him and he was staring at his feet. I took my hand and moved his chin up to face me. He looked at my with sad eyes. I could see the tears building up. I kissed his plump lips softly.
"Harry, I love you. You know that, right?" He nodded and dropped his head. I pulled it back up. "You and Laylah are my world. And I've already lost my world twice. I'm just afraid that something will happen again, like this. I don't want to lose my world again."
"You don't have to worry about that."
"What do you mean?"
"From now on, I'm going to treat you like the queen you are. I'll stop drinking, be more faithful, committed. I'll do anything for you, Abby. But you just have to give me the chance." I hesitated a little.
"Okay." I said, after thinking for a while. He smiled and kissed me.
"I want to be with you forever." He whispered as we pulled apart. He slid the ring on my finger. I grinned and hugged him. He hugged back tightly, burying his face into my long brown hair. Someone walked in, but Harry didn't notice. I pulled my head up from his chest and looked over his shoulder. It was Jade and Liam. They both smiled. I smiled back, returning my head to Harry's chest. I could feel him kiss my neck through my hair. He blew a hot breath into my ear, causing me to tremble. I felt him smirk. I giggled a little. "Oh God."
"What?" I asked, pulling away.
"Giggling is the biggest turn on ever." I rolled my eyes. "I'm being serious. You look so beautiful right now." His emerald eyes were sparkling. I blushed. "You really do." He said, stepping closer. I looked at my feet, smiling. He pulled my chin up and kissed my lips so softly, I could barely feel it. His lips moved to behind my ear, right where my sweet spot was. I gasped a little and fluttered my eyes shut when he started to suck on it. I let out a quiet moan and Harry let out a chuckle that vibrated through my ear. I put my arms around his neck and rapped his curls around my fingers, tugging gently. He pulled away and walked to the door. I thought he was going to leave, but he just shut it and locked it. I walked back over to me, grinning. I sat down on the edge of the bed. He tried to lean down on top of me, but I kept crawling backwards on my elbows. I threw a smirk at him. He laughed as he started to chase me around the bed. I soon found myself falling off the other side, on my face. "Abby! Are you okay?" Harry said, quickly moving at my side. I just started laughing at my stupidity. I couldn't stop laughing. And it was loud. He smiled at me and tried to help me up, but I just layed there laughing, unable to move. He started to laugh to. It turned into a laughing party. I finally caught my breath and got the strength to get up. I stumbled a little bit and fell into Harry, tripping him. The next thing I knew, I was on top of Harry on the bed. My legs were on either side of him, crotches touching. He winked at me and made a funny face. I laughed. We smiled at me, his emerald glare burning into mine. I moved up and kissed him. It was only supposed to be a quick peck, but it held there for much longer. His tongue grazed my bottom lip, asking for enterance. I quickly let him in. Our tongues danced in our mouths as things started to get heated. He was shirtless now and I wasn't wearing pants. His kisses lingered to my neck. I turned my head slightly to give him more access. He found my sweetspot again, licking it and blowing hot air on it. I moaned lightly and he let out a throaty grunt. His kiss moved from my neck to my chest. He kissed through my breasts, down to my stomach. He kissed it all over. He got to my pantyline. He kissed all around it, in a line. He looked up to me for permission to enter. I nodded. He started to pull my underwear down until there was a knock on the door. "What?" Harry said, annoyed that our intimate moment was interrupted.
"Um, Abby?" It was Jade.
"Yeah? I said, getting up at putting my pants back on. I could tell Harry was disappointed.
"C-can I talk to you?"
"Yeah, just a second." I buckled my jeans and opened the door, squeezing through, so Jade wouldn't see Harry, who was only in his boxers. I closed the door behind me. "Yeah?"
"You might want to come see this." She said, pointing to the stairs. I followed her down the steps. I saw Liam, holding Laylah on his lap.
"Say it again, Laylah." He said, smiling.
"I love Mummy." My mouth dropped. Laylah was barely a week old. How was she talking? And she had down syndrome. I just don't understand.
"D-did she just talk?" I said, a tear running down my cheek. Jade smiled and nodded to me. "B-but how? She's hardly even a week old and she has down syndrome. It's impossible."
"Well, it just happened." Liam smiled. I walked over to him. I picked Laylah up. I looked at her straight in the eye.
"Hi, Mummy." She said.
"Uh.. hi, baby."
"I want to see Daddy." She said, pointing to the stairs. I was so stunned that I just stood there. "Daddy." She repeated, pointing at the steps. I nodded and started up the steps. I got to our door and knocked.
"Uh, Harry? Are you decent? I have Laylah."
"Hold on." He said. A few seconds later, he opened the door. He smiled at Laylah. "Hi there, princess."
"Hi, Daddy." His eyes widened and his mouth dropped.
"How?" Is all he could say.
"I have no idea." I said, just as surprised. I smiled. He smiled back.
"Daddy, I hungry." She said to Harry. How did she already know all these words and their meanings? We hadn't even tried to teach her.
"Uh.. okay, honey. I'll get you a bottle." He said, walking by and looking back frequently.
How is this possible?
