When I woke up the next morning Cam was already awake.
"Hey." His raspy morning voice was so sexy it gae me butterflies in my stomach.
"Hi. Why are you awake so early?" He rolled over onto his side so we were face to face.
"I was thinking. How do we tell Brae that her dad died in a car accident before she was born and I'm not her real dad?" His eyes looked so serious. I could tell he had been thinking about this for a while.
"Like that. But. You are her real dad. So instead we say 'unbiological'. She's obviously a daddy's girl. She won't care. You know why?" He looked over to her crib and laid there.
"Why?" He asked quietly.
"She loves you. And always will." He smiled and stood up he walked over to her crib and picked her up.
"I love you so much baby girl. I promise I will always be here for you. I'm your father. And your my little princess." He whispered sweetly into her ear. She awoke and smiled at the sight I her dad holding her. And I knew he relised I was right.
"Come lay down. Bring her." He walked over and placed the baby in between us and laid down.
"Ali. You and Braelynn are the best things to happen to me in a long time. And I love you so much." He stood up and sat on the bed beside me. He took his hand in placed mine in his. "I think it's time we go on a date night."
"Okay." I kissed his lips and lifted up Brae. I looked at her and saw Dylan's features yet it didn't feel like Dylan's baby. As Cameron got into the shower I let it out. I cried. I gelt brae and cried. Although u have Cameron and I love him it doesn't remove the fact that Dylan is gone and I love him. My phone rang and the caller ID read: DOLLY
"Dolly are you on your way!" I asked crying and trying not to wake the now sleeping baby.
"Yup. Are you okay?" She asked worried.
"Just come." I hung up and walked into the bathroom.
"Babe. Dolly is coming over and we are having girl time so I put all your stuff in the guest room to change so you don't disturb such sacred times!!" I laughed the most realistic fake laugh I could produce.
"Okay. I love you" he replied. Dolly walked into my room. She ran over and embraced me. Tears fell faster than the speed of sound.
"Awe hunney what's wrong?" She asked sitting down and cuddling my baby.
"Look at her. She looked just like Dylan. And it hurts still. My heart hurts.
