Mummy, Where's Daddy?

Niall and I were just fine, meeting each other when I was 15 and he was 19. We fell in love, and I was completely smitten with him. But after one drunken night, four years after we met, six months dating, I fell pregnant. Niall walked out when he found out, couldn't cope with the pressure of being a dad at 23. Only 19, I was confused, hurt and upset. When I was at the 8-months mark, I pulled myself together and got on with life. Now Alexander is 3, and he's starting to ask questions. Will his daddy be back?

8. New Daddy for Alex

"Wait, Ellie!" George called after me, running. Ignoring him, I continued to walk, but I was forced to stop as he stood in front of me, his arms wrapping around me. "What did he say?" he asked, and I shrug. "He can't have said nothing." he mumbled, frowning. "He called me a lying whore," I reply, looking up. He planted a gentle kiss on my forehead, "Are you a lying whore?" he asks, and I frown. "No!" I protest, and he chuckles. "Then don't listen to him!" he answered. I smiled weakly, "But his words still hurt me," I add, sighing. "Don't listen to him. He's just taken aback by the surprise news," he replied, grinning. "You don't get it... they actually did hurt, I can't just ignore them!" I exclaimed, and he shrugs. "Fine, just remember you're not a lying whore," George answered, smiling softly. Groaning, I pull away from the hug and I walk alongside with him into the shopping centre.

 

 "I need to pick up Alex," I mumbled, and George nods. "I'll come with you," he said in a firm tone, making me nod automatically. We both walk towards the nearest toy shop, as I texted Tom's mother earlier. "Mummy!" Alex called, running to me. "Hey!" I reply, grinning and kneeling down to hug him. Alex's arms wrapped around my neck as we shared an embrace. "Is this George?" Alex asked, looking up at George, and George replied with a nod, and Alex held his arms out for a hug from him. George happily picked Alex up and gave him a quick hug. "Are you mummy's boyfriend?" Alex question, and George chuckled heartily, then nodded. "Me and you need to have a little chat," Alex said, smiling innocently. George laughed, "I like you, little lad," he replied and Alex grinned happily. I watched their entire conversation and they both went around the store, George and Alex squealing when they saw a toy from an online game or from a film. One sentence was said that made me smile so much was: "George, will you be my daddy?" Alex has asked George when George needed to get back home. George's answer, of course, was a smile and a keen nod. When George left, Alex came up to me, "George is my daddy now. Mummy and daddy will be very happy," he said, smiling. I was unable to stop smiling for the rest of the day. George is my guardian angel, and Niall's my..... Angel that turned evil.
