Thanks to Ashton, I finally understood that Niall was only trying to protect me; but now I feel so sorry for Nialler. I gotta make it up to him; I didn't want to see him coming home without a smile. I felt like he didn't want to come home anymore since I kept ignoring him and not giving him a chance to explain further. I needed to fix this before our marriage breaks.
So tonight, I decided to make a special dinner, a romantic dinner. I went to the grocery store to buy some meat and some veggies. When I got back home, I immediately began to prepare for dinner. My plan was to cook some steak with some steam veggie and a tiny scoop of mashed potato. Of course there was soup- clam chowder. Last but not least, a bottle of decent red wine. On the table, I put on some candles and some rose peddles plus a little card with Niall's name on it. I was never good at apologizing so I decided to write my apology down. When everything is set, it was just the matter of time when he comes home.
I heard the garage door opened then closed; I took a peek at the security camera and saw Niall coming into the home. He let out a big sigh before continued walking down the hallway that led to our living room. Without noticing, he threw the car keys onto the living room table leaving a big clang. I could tell he couldn't take it anymore. Then he threw himself onto the couch and covered his face with his hands. Tears were forming in my eye sockets; I couldn't believe that I didn't realize that I hated to see him so miserable like this. Suddenly he began to sniff, which reminded about the dinner that was about to get cold in the dining room. So I walked out from behind the wall and called, "Ni?"
"Oh hey babe! I didn't know you are downstairs!" he pretended that he was not upset.
"Ya ummm about that...we need to talk, I mean, I need to apologize to you," I said shamefully.
"Oh..." he said and looked down at the floor.
I walked towards him and pulled him into the dining room without saying a word. He was confused.
"Case, wait, what are you do-" he was cut off by the scene of the dinner table.
"Nialler, honey, I am so sorry about how I treated you for the past few days. I should have put myself in your position. I would have done the same if I were you," I tried to explain as he seated himself in front of his plate. I awkwardly took a seat across from him. After thirty seconds of silence, he finally looked up at me and said, "Case, you don't have to apologize. I understand why you're mad, and I understand why you didn't wanna talk to me for the past few days. I get it! Don't worry about it!"
"I'm glad you forgive me, but can you just read what I have to say in the little card in from of you?"
She pointed at the little half fold card with my name on it. She wrote the whole thing in her beautiful cursive writing. How can I stay mad at her and not forgive her when she's so amazing? I opened and and it read:
I'm so sorry about what I've done to you for the past few days. I'm sorry if I made you feel miserable about coming home. I just didn't know how to cope with the unexpected death of our unborn child. It was always a dream for me to start a little family with the love of my life. And when you reminded me that I was pregnant but lost the baby in the accident, it was like a dream come true but shattered the next second. I didn't know what to do. I'm sorry I let out my emotions on you; we should be going through this together. Now I finally understand; you didn't tell me because you don't want me to be upset or cry all the time. Niall, thank you for always being there for me even when I was ignoring you. I promise, I will not let my stupidity and my stubbornness ruin the best thing that has happen in my life. I love you so much, and I'm sorry.
I didn't know what to say; I was just so glad that my baby is finally back to her normal self! I got up from my chair and walked to her side and pulled her into a tight embrace. "I love you too, Cupcake!" I whispered.
"I miss the way you call me that," she chuckled.
"Cupcake, Cupcake, Cupcake!" I teased.
She laughed and said, "Potato, you really are the best thing that has happen to me in my life."
We then share a passionate kiss- it felt good- before I pulled away and asked, "Can we eat now? I'm starving!"
"Of course! Hope you like it!"
"I love everything you cook, babe!"
