Love from the Past

Tessa Parks is your average teenager from Ireland... But she has a two year old son named James. The only one who knows who the baby daddy is, is Tessa and her best friend Lauren. The baby daddy was Tessa's true love who left before she could ever tell him that she was expecting his baby. So, two years later, Tessa is face to face with him, and so is James. Will he come back into Tessa's life and be apart of his son James's life too?


6. Talking Part 2

*TESSA'S POV* We drove to Niall's house and I couldn't help but be super nervous. My hands wouldn't stop shaking and my tummy was doing flips the whole time. All I could think about was what if he doesn't want me in his life again? I've been by myself for a while now but it would be nice if James had a dad. And, it would be nice if I had my Niall back. I missed him. He was my one true love and it hurt when he left. Especially since I had found out I was pregnant, I was all alone in this world trying to raise a baby. I just want his help, even if we don't get back together. If he doesn't want to get back together with me, then I'll have to deal with it, even though I still love him. We pull up to his mum's house and I get out and get James out, "Lets go bubba." I carry him on my hip and walk up the long driveway. I look up at one of the windows on the second floor, and see Niall looking back at me. I smile a weak smile at him but he just walks away from the window. I sigh and shake my head, this is going to be a long day. I walk up to the door and ring the doorbell. Seconds later, Niall opens the door and gives me a weak smile, "Come on in." I nod my head and walk in. I set James down and he takes my hand. We walk into the kitchen and see Maura, Niall's mum, doing dishes. James drops my hand, "Mrs. Maura!" He ran over to her and she picked him up and gave him a big hug, "Well hello! How's my sweet little munchkin?" I giggled and sat down at the counter. She looked over at me, "So how are you doing? I know this must be a lot for you." I sigh and give her a nod, "I guess I'm okay. This isn't how I wanted this to go, you know? I wish I told him when I should have instead of waiting till now." She nodded her head at me, "I understand. But it's hard, for both of you. Niall was up all night last night trying to think things through. But don't worry sweetie, everything is gonna work itself out eventually. And I'm always here for you." I give a smile at her, "Thanks Maura." She gives me a smile, "Anytime sweetie, now you go sit in the living room and I'll go get Niall." She walks by me and gives me a kiss on the head before she goes and puts James down. Then she heads upstairs to get Niall. I take James's hand and walk him into the living room with me. I sit down and I sit him on my lap. A little while later, Niall walks in and gives me a weak smile and then comes and sits on the other end of the couch. I sigh, "So what should we talk about first?" He sits there for awhile then shrugs, "I guess we should just talk about what we are gonna do, you know. Like parenting, coming out to the press about this, and just stuff like that." I nod my head, "Alright, well I think I should tell you that if you don't want to be his father and you don't want to do this, I'm not forcing you to do anything. I don't want you to be unhappy and feel like I am forcing anything on you. So you can decide if you want to do this." He looks up at me, "Im going to do this. It's the right thing to do. If I have a son, then I need to be there for him." I nodded at him, I'm happy he's gonna be there for James. I look down at James and I see that he fell asleep in my arms. I look up and see Niall staring at him. Niall finally looks up, "So what are we going to do about like parenting? Are we going to have shared custody? Where I get him on weekends or are what?" I shrugged my shoulders, "I have no idea." He sat there for a bit, "I think I should get him on weekends, if that's okay with you. Then, maybe eventually, you guys can move in with me in London? But it's up to you." Move in with him? Wow. I nodded my head, "I agree. But we are going to have to talk about where we stand. Like what are we?" He looks down, "Tessa. I, um, have a girlfriend..." I sat there for awhile, he has a girlfriend. I nod my head, "Okay. So we're friends. That's perfectly fine. Alright, I'll drop James off next weekend." I get up and start walking out, I felt a tear starting to fall out. I was almost to the door when I hear Niall behind me, "Tessa, are you okay?" I don't turn around, not wanting him to see me about to cry, "Um, yeah. I'm fine. I just gotta go. See ya soon." I walk out and put James in the car and get in the drivers seat. I sit there for a second, tears falling down my face. I put my face to my hands and sob into my hands. He has a girlfriend. And it's not me. So now I have to watch him be with someone else while I'm just the ex girlfriend who practically ruined his life by telling him that he is a dad. Why does this have to happen? I hear James from the back, "Mommy, why you crying?" I wipe my tears and look back at him, "Mommy is just upset baby." He looks back at me with his shining blue eyes, that remind me so much of Niall, "Why is mommy upset?" I reach back and kiss his forehead, "Mommy misses someone who she loved very much." I turn around and see Niall staring back at me from the porch, with sad eyes. I look away and wipe my tears and start backing out of the driveway and start heading home. I look back and see him sitting on the porch with his head in his hands. I look back on the road and let more tears stream slowly down my cheek.
