True Love

"I'm proud of you man" he smiled. I looked at him my vision blurry, "why?" "You have a perfect family.. You know who you're gonna spend the rest of your life with.. You've created a perfect family.. Your story is amazing.. The perfect family argues... The perfect family has some cuts.. But they stay together no matter what.." he smiled.


6. "We did a good job huh?"

*Justin's POV*

Maybe this make love thing helps. We aren't arguing that much anymore. "You can count on me too... And will always be there for you no matter what happens angel" I pecked her cheek. "Thank you for everything Justin... For giving me this family... This life... Even though it's shit sometimes... I couldn't dream of a better life.." she said. I smiled like a fool, "you're welcome baby... And thanks to you too... I can't imagine a better life than this... Goodnight angel... Sleep tight... You need some rest..." "Goodnight prince" she yawned and slowly fell asleep. ---- It was 6am and I just arrived at work, when my boss shouted for me. "What's up?" I smiled. "You're happy today huh?" he chuckled. "Yeah I got to spend the night with my wife so" I smiled. "So next week I'll go on vacation and that means that you're off all week. But then when I'm back you have to work till 12am... I'm sorry Justin... But we have some really important clients that week" he looked at me looking truly sorry. I sighed rubbing my face with my hands, "how am I supposed to tell her? We will fight again... I don't wanna loose her man..." "You won't... I'll call her if it's necessary and tell her how important this is... But you have next week off... Look you're the best cook of all time... I hope I can count on you Justin" he said. "You can... I won't see my family... How am I supposed to tell Zoe? I barely see her..." I sighed. "I'll pay you 150$ besides what you usually get per day..." he said desperately. "200" I begged. He sighed, "200." "Thank you so much... I swear I won't disappoint you" I said happily. "You're my best man Justin... I know you won't..." he smiled, "that was all.." "Have a great vacation sir" I smiled and walked back to the kitchen. ----- "See ya boss" I shouted before walking to my car. I drove home and ran up the stairs. "Dammit I forgot my keys" I groaned and rang the doorbell. The door opened, "hey Jus forgot your keys." I nodded, "yep.." I got inside and locked the door, "I have great news... And kinda bad..." "What is it?" Ciara smiled and sat down. "Well next week my boss is going on vacation so I'm off next week" I smiled happily. Her eyes light up, "you're kidding me right?" I shook my head, "nope angel..." She jumped in my arms, "it's been 4 years since you've been home like that... Zoe is gonna be so happy.." "I know beautiful... I can't wait to spend a week with her and you.." I exclaimed. She pulled away, "okay now the bad news.." I looked down, "well um... We have some really really important clients the week after that... And my boss wants me to work till 12am that week..." "What?! Justin! You're kidding me right?! 12am?" she exclaimed annoyed and sad. "Look angel... I'm so sorry... But the only good thing about this is that I'll get 200$ plus the pay I get now... Everyday... In that week..." I explained trying to calm her down. "200?" she exclaimed, "really?" "Yeah 200... I begged him... I told him that we probably would fight... Then he told me that if you didn't understand it he would call you and explain it... And then he was like, you're the best cook of all time... You're my best man Justin... And I trust you..." I smiled, "sometimes I don't wanna be the best..." She giggled, "well he doesn't have to explain anything... But how am I supposed to take care of Zoe when I'm at work?" "My mom will take care of her or something... She is 43 she can take care of her" I said. "Your mom does so many things for us... I really appreciate it but we can't give anything in return" she exclaimed. "Do you have any other ideas?" I said. "Kindergarten?" she said. "Yeah but we don't have any money remember?" I sighed. "I'll figure something out..." she exclaimed. "But-" "Justin can you please once forget your mom?! She is doing so much for us... I don't want her to... We can do this by ourselves.. We don't need her help... I know she loves taking care of Zoe but Zoe has to learn to be social... If your mom wants to, Zoe and I can stay at her place one week... And we have to find a kindergarten.." she exclaimed annoyed. "I just want to help... I don't know what to do! Please help me... What do you want Ciara?" I said frustrated. She sighed, "I don't know... But I know that I do not want your mom to help us... We can do it ourselves... I'm not weak..." "Oh so that's what's wrong... You don't wanna look weak" I said, "you're not weak... My mom doesn't think you're weak at all.. She thinks you're strong and brave.. She just wanna help us.. Because she knows we're going through a tough time... You're not weak... You're the strongest and bravest woman I've ever met... Not many would survive what you've been through.." "But Justin to get help is to be weak... If you get help you're weak... If you cry you're weak... If you get depressed you're weak..." she exclaimed. I looked at her shocked, "I didn't know you felt like that... All these years... You've been mad because you didn't want any help... You're not weak if you get help... At all... You're strong and brave because you can face that you need help to something.. Ciara you're not weak... Even when you were at your worst you weren't weak.. You weren't mental weak... You get help if you put her in a kindergarten. You get help to take care of your child.. It's the same.." "You don't understand" she shouted. She hasn't shouted at me since we almost got a divorce. "Hey... I'm trying... But you're not weak... We will put her in a kindergarten... Promise... We will look for one next week okay?" I said as calm as possible. "But Justin-" "What do you want? Tell me what you want! I don't know what to do.. I'm working my ass off so we at least have some money.. I'm trying to take care of Zoe.. I'm trying to take care of you... Isn't that good enough?" "I don't know what I want... I just want Zoe to be happy... I want you to be happy.." she exclaimed angry. "I am happy and I'm sure Zoe is too... But I'm not sure you are happy.... I want you to be happy Ciara.." I said frustrated. What did she want? I try everything. "It doesn't matter if I'm happy or not Justin" she almost shouted. "What?!" I exclaimed not believing what she just said, "it's the most important thing... If you aren't happy I can't be happy.. If you aren't happy Zoe can't be happy.. The only way I can be happy is if you and Zoe are happy otherwise I'm not gonna be happy..." "But what if I tell you that I'm not happy?" she shouted and sat down. "Then I wanna do everything to make you happy... And I mean everything" I exclaimed, "if you aren't happy.. There is no way that I can be happy..." "I am happy it's not that... I'm just worried about Zoe.. If she is okay.. If she ever will see you like really... She never sees you Justin... You're home when she is asleep.. And you're gone in the morning at the crack dawn... I'm tired of all the work.. I just want you to be with us.." she exclaimed. I sighed, "we do not have a choice.. I don't know what went wrong but we don't have any money... If you want me to be home earlier or be with you in the morning we have to get help from someone-" "I don't want any help" she shouted. "We have to if you want me to be home" I exclaimed, "we have to.. Even though you don't want to we have to..." "I wanna get help... But I can't disappoint my mom.. She always told me that if you get help you're weak.." she exclaimed. "Why do you tell me all of this now?!" I shouted annoyed, "you could've told me this a long time ago... Then I would've helped you a lot more.. Why did you hide all of these things?" "Because I didn't want you to see me weak... And you didn't ask?" she shouted. "Are mommy and daddy getting a divorce again?" I heard a tearful voice. I turned to see Zoe with tears down her cheeks. I felt a knife inside. "No.. We're just arguing a bit... It's normal... We just disagree" I hurried over to her and stroked her cheek. "I don't want you to get divorced" she cried out. "We won't princess.. I promise you my little girl.. I love your mommy too much but I don't know the other way around right now" I mumbled looking at Ciara. She was sitting down sighing. My angel. I wish I could help you. She was acting like this last time she wanted a divorce. It was because it wasn't good for Zoe. We were fighting too much and I just got fired from an other place. Then I found this place. And now I'm here. "Zoe what about you go to bed now... We will put on some music okay?" I smiled. She nodded, "please don't shout at each other.." "We will try princess.. C'mon" I grabbed her hand leading her to her room. When I've put on some music and closed the door. I walked back to Ciara. "Ciara I-" "I'm confused right now... Just please" she looked down. "I'll sleep on the couch then" I sighed. "No Justin" she said. "What do you want me to do? Tell me now.." I shouted looking at her, "I don't know what to do?!" She sighed looking hurt, "I don't know Justin.." "Sorry I didn't mean to shout at you" I sighed then I grabbed my phone and called my boss.

Me: Hey boss it's me..

Boss: Hey Justin why are you calling..

Me: Um I just... Is it okay if I take a day off tomorrow... We have some family problems..

Boss: Sure... Is it the wife?

Me: Yeah... I'm not sure where we are right now.. It's kinda hanging by a thread right now..

Boss: Well just take your time... You will get tomorrow off... I hope you will figure out something..

Me: Thanks... I'll see you later..

Boss: See ya Justin..

I hung up and looked at Ciara, "I'm off tomorrow.." "I could hear" she said. "Look Ciara.. I don't want you to be mad at me.. I'm sorry if I said something that hurt you or something.. I'm sorry... I just don't know what to do? You're not making it easy for me" I said calm. "I know... Okay one thing... Our marriage isn't hanging by a thread.. And I don't want you to sleep on the couch.. I want you to tell me that everything is gonna be alright.. And all of this is a bad dream.. That I will wake up.. And we will have a life where money is no problem.." she sighed, "but I know you can't.." "I know all of this is some shit.. But I do love you.. That's all I can give you.. My love.. And my happiness.. I hope that's enough.. I can't give you a perfect life.. I can't give you a perfect house.. I can give you, me and my love for you and Zoe.. I can give you all of that.. But I can't give you want you want.. I can tell you that everything is going to be alright and I won't lie.. I can tell you that this is a bad dream and that you will wake up and we will have a life where money is no problem but it would be a big fat lie... I can't give you anything but my love and my support... I would love to but I can't give you what you want Ciara.." "I know Justin... And if I want all of that I have to leave you and I can't leave you.. But Justin it's so hard sometimes.. I don't know what happened.. But we're poor as fuck and we don't even have enough money to pay for food... This wasn't the life I dreamed of-" "Then leave me... If you aren't happy with this life then leave me and find a rich man instead of me.. I'm sure the two of you would be a lot more happy.. And you would probably-" "Stop Justin" she shouted, "what I wanted to say was... I didn't dream of this life but I wouldn't give it away for anything in this entire world and universe." "Oh sorry.. Me neither" I looked down. "It's okay.. That sentence doesn't always turn out okay... But this time it did" she said, sounding more calm. "So what is our decision? I have a day off tomorrow so we can look at kindergartens for her" I said. "I don't want to worry about that right now.. I want us to be together as a family tomorrow... Go to the park and so" she explained, "we can look at one for her next week." "Okay baby.. I'd love to" I smiled, "but-" "Justin we will talk about all of that next week okay" she smiled. I walked over to her, "I love you... Even though we can fight and argue.. I still love you..." "Me too Justin" she smiled. Then sang, "At the same time I wanna hug you. I wanna wrap my hands around your neck

You're an asshole but I love you." "Awe you too sweetie" I winked. She playfully hit my chest giggling, "I love you no matter how much we're arguing or fighting.. I will always love you Jus.." "Tomorrow we won't argue or fight okay" I said, "because we have to focus on our family.." She nodded, "couldn't agree more.." "We haven't had a fight like this for a while.." I said wrapping my arms around her waist. "Nope.. But last time, we didn't make up.. We did now.. Last time it almost ended up with a divorce.. We got stronger Jus" she poked my nose and wrapped her arms around my neck. "We are.." I smiled resting my forehead on hers, "a lot.." "We always fight or argue about some stupid things though" she giggled. "Yeah... But after today I got to know more about you" I smiled. "Yeah.." I leaned in and our lips met in a passionate kiss. Our tongues were fighting like we haven't kissed in years. Well we snogged for a while and stopped when we heard Zoe's voice exclaim, "ew.." I giggled, "princess you will love it when you get older.. But right now you aren't going to kiss anybody... Besides me.." I took her up in my arms and pecked her cheek, "c'mon give daddy a kiss princess.." She pecked my lips smiling. "I love you" I said stroking her cheek. "Love you too daddy" she smiled. I looked at Ciara. She was standing with her phone I guess she was recording. "See princess.. Mommy is recording" I chuckled and pointed at Ciara, who giggled. "Why is she recording?" Zoe smiled. "Don't know beautiful" I pecked her cheek smiling. Ciara stopped recording and put her phone on the table. "So you aren't gonna get a divorce" Zoe asked. I shook my head, "of cause not princess. We never were.. We just disagreed..." "But mommy shouted and so did you" she looked down. I lifted up her chin with my finger looking into her big hazel/caramel brown eyes, "we might shout princess, but we will never get a divorce.. I love your mommy too much to do that.. And I'm sure she loves me too.. I promise you.." "Okay" she smiled, "but I don't like when you're fighting.." I looked at Ciara, "we'll try not to okay princess.. But sometimes we do disagree.." "Okay daddy" she smiled. "Uh and by the way.. I don't have to go to work tomorrow. So we can make a picnic and eat it at the park.. Does that sound okay princess?" I smiled. She nodded, "yay.." "Okay now you have to go to bed sweetie.. You aren't getting enough sleep" I pecked her cheek, "but first a family hug." Ciara smiled and came over to us. I pulled her into the hug and we stood there for a while then pulled away. I stroked Ciara's cheek smiling, "love you angel." "Love you too" she smiled. "Twinkle, twinkle, little star, How I wonder what you are.

Up above the world so high,

Like a diamond in the sky.

When the blazing sun is gone,

When he nothing shines upon,

Then you show your little light,

Twinkle, twinkle, all the night" I sang quietly while stroking Zoe's cheek. "She's asleep" I smiled. "Let me take her" Ciara smiled and took her. She walked to her room and I followed her. I leaned against the door frame, "we did a good job huh?" She turned around looking confused at me. "Making her" I nodded towards Zoe. "Oh" Ciara smiled her beautiful smile, "yeah we did.. She is wonderful.." "Just like her mom" I smiled. She smiled, "and her dad." "Let's watch a movie my beautiful wife" I smiled and grabbed her hand.
