17. Chapter 16

(Lucy's POV)

I stood there, looking at the stranger who stood at my door.

"oh my god..." I said, my cheeks flushing with embarrassment as I realized I was still in my robe.

"Lucy," I heard him whisper.

"I... What? Um...." how does he know my name?

"can I com-"

"Lucy? Babe, who's at the door?" Liam said, coming down the hall in sweatpants and no shirt.

"nobody." I said closing the door. "just some sales person, i think," I quickly brushed past Liam. "I'm going to put some clothes on. Meet you in the kitchen," I said, kissing his cheek as I passed.

I ran to the bedroom, slightly worried about how this complete stranger knew my name. After searching through my dresser, I pulled off my wet suit and put on clean undergarments. I wore a pair of black spandex shorts and a light purple hoodie over a sports bra with neon yellow knee-high socks. I called Nina, telling her to come over, and made sure my messy bun was still messy before going to find Liam.

He was sitting in the kitchen, conversing with the man who was at the door. I took a seat next to Liam.

"so what is it that you do?" the man asked Liam in a voice that sounded familiar. 

He looked to be about mid-forties with very gray hair but a bright red beard. His face and arms were covered in freckles like mine.

"I'm a singer. Maybe you've heard. I'm in a very popular boy band called one direction," Liam answered.

The man nodded. "and is that a very physically demanding job?"


"how often are you at home?"

"I've been home for awhile now, but we have another tour coming up soon." Liam said sheepishly.

My eyes shot to Liam. I hadn't heard anything about another tour, and from the looks of it, this man noticed my confusion.

"you... You have to go? Again?" I asked.

"Lucy, I'm sorry. I should have told you sooner," he said, grabbing my hand.
"how long have you known?"

"a few months."

I heard one of the kids start crying in the other room. "excuse me," I muttered, taking my hand from Liam.

As I walked I looked down at my hand, the ring Liam gave me sitting proudly. I turned back to see the man looking intently at me. It made my skin tingle at how familiar those baby blue eyes were...

I quickly found that it was Aiden who started crying. I picked him up and returned to the kitchen, where he received a sippy cup of milk.

The man was asking Liam about his income and his past, I could tell Liam was uncomfortable but was to polite to not answer.

The mans gaze shifted to me as I say back down. "and who is this?" he asked.

"this is Aiden," I told him.

"may I hold him?" he asked, not even waiting for an answer before pulling my baby out of my arms. "so he is yours both?" he asked.

I felt myself tense when he started the touchy subject; however, Liam calmed me by snaking an arm around my waist. "yes," he answered.

The man stopped looking at Aiden and started at Liam. "and you take good care of Lucy?"

"yes?" Liam said.

"good." The man went back to cooing and bouncing the almost asleep baby boy. 

Soon I felt my eyes droop. "babe, go to bed. I'll make sure Aiden gets back to bed," Liam whispered in my ear.

I nodded and kissed his cheek before I began towards the bed room. I waved goodnight to the man.

"goodnight Lucy-bear."

I froze in my spot. Eyes wide, tiredness forgotten. Slowly I turned around, recognition of the man finally hitting.

"oh my god..." I said once more, this time, in utter shock and disbelief. Before I processed what was happening, I took off across the room, the man had given Aiden to Liam just in time for me to throw my arms around him, squeezing him tighter then I ever thought humanly possible.

"Lucy" I heard him whisper.

"do you know each other?" Liam asked, confused.

I stepped back from the man, a broad smile on my face. "Liam," I said. "this... This is my dad."
