Chapter 17 ~ Catliyn’s POV
"Joe! Joe! What are you doing?!" I whispered screamed.
"Getting a little alone time."
He had me pushed up against the wall of the guest bedroom. His hand firmly on my hips. He leaned forward and frenched kissed me hard. I placed my hands on his chest and pushed him away, breaking the kiss.
"Woah babe. What's wrong? Don't you love me?"
"Yes. I do love you but I'm not ready for that yet," I said. He looked at me with puppy dog eyes.
"Crap!" I said slapping my hand on my forehead.
"What?" Joe asked
"I forgot a cake!" I grabbed Joe and hand and ran up the steps I out in my coat and scribbled Aislin and Connor a quick note telling them that we would be at the store and back soon.
I drove to the closest bakery and parked the car. I got out and practically ran inside with Joe stroking behind me. I picked out a chocolate Vineland marvel cake. I placed it on the counter and asked the baker if she could write "welcome home Aislin" on it in blue gel.
"A-i-s-l-i-n," I spelled out. The lady handed me back the cake and Joe came back with a can of reddi whip and some candles. We walked over to the cashier and paid for everything.
I texted Aislin to tell her that we would be back in about ten minutes.
"Mhmmm. That was delicious. Thanks guys. I don't know how my first day back could've been better," Aislin said pushing her plate away.
"It was the least we could do. We really missed you and we thought that you probably didn't want to spend your first night back with Steven and his mom," I replied.
"Hey, we better be going. Great party and welcome home sweetie," Connor said giving Aislin a hug and kissing her cheek. Joe walked over to me and did the same. The boys left and Aislin and I went up to my room to sleep.
