Moment in time

I gave birth to a shapely little girl. I was seventeen when I became a mom to my daughter. She had just me and I didn't tell her who was her father. I lived a pretty normal life, until he came back.


1. Introduction

I was in the labour ward, and felt nothing but happiness. In my arms I held the world's smallest baby. I had just become a mother and I cried. I was crying because of loneliness, but I cried even more for the luck to finally see her. She was almost a copy of her dad and I saw his face in her. She was so beautiful that my heart hurt.


"Are you sure that you don't know who the father is?"
Mom asked, the doctor asked, and everyone wanted to know, but I kept quiet. I knew you still wouldn't bother you. I knew it would be an obstacle to your future. You were in a completely different world and you didn't care about your ex-girlfriend. You had once broken up with me. All in order to pursue a career. You wanted to be in the X-factor and when you went on, you had no time for me.


"Come on, Tess!" you said as cold as an ice cube. "I can't have a girlfriend when I'm working with music. I have no time for you and then it's better that we break up!"
I cried for days, I was so painful and I did realize that you really didn't want me. I was devastated and I felt so abandoned. A month later, I noticed that I was pregnant. I knew you were the father, but I realized that you would never want to be in the picture and I knew you didn't have time to care for a child.


I named my daughter Lilly and she was like you more and more. No one around me thought of you, when they asked about who the father was. I saw it, but nobody else. I let the secret rest over me and I thought I made the right choice.


When Lilly was three years old, I had managed to survive. I lived with her in London and I worked in a clothing store. We had a good life and I took care of her the best way. I had not educated myself and I had long ago ceased to party with friends.. I was growing up fast and I had to take my responsibility. Meanwhile, you were one of the biggest celebrities in the world. You become someone  with One Direction and you travelled around the world.


I thought I had gotten over you! I thought you were a complete part of my life and I had long since given up the dream that you would come back.


Yet you showed up when I least expected it.
