Generation Eight Chapter Fifteen

After months of planning, the day was finally here. I was getting married! It was going to be very simple. Mum and Dad couldn’t make it over from Hidden Springs, Hamish and Mary weren’t going to make it either. Bradley’s family couldn’t afford the travel, though I offered to pay for it, they refused. So it was just Bradley and I with Aaron, Ambro, and Rose.

 

Aaron stood on Bradley’s side as his ‘best man’.

 

 

 

It was hard to believe I was now married to the most amazing man on the planet.

 

An amazing wedding night followed an amazing wedding.

Only a few months after the wedding I started to feel sick. I began to feel giddy as well. Another child would be wonderful, would act to my pure bliss.

It wasn’t long until it was confirmed, and I knew I was one of the luckiest women alive. I had gone through a lot of stuff with Nicholas, but I had my wonderful son out of it, and now had an amazing husband and another baby on the way. I was a very happy woman.

————————-

AN~ Short update I know, but I wanted to wrap Eilidh’s generation up with her wedding. This is her last chapter, without even seeing the new baby… I know, I’m that cruel. Going any further with Eilidh will be boring though ‘Oh I have a new baby, I’m so happy. Oh, my baby is a toddler, I’m so happy. Oh my son is a teenager, I’m so happy’. Just ugh. 

So the next generation will jump forward in time a bit, so I have to do quite a bit of playing before I can begin the next generation. Good news, though, I have two weeks break coming up, I do have two assignments during that time but I’m pretty sure I can do that and do quite a bit of game playing. So yay!

Generation Eight Chapter Fourteen

Moonlight Falls was a small town, and full of supernatural creatures, as we quickly found out. We had no idea that there was a town out there that was perfect for our family. We didn’t have to lie about our story, even the humans in this town were well aware of what lurked in this town. Apparently there was a bit of a feud between the vampires and werewolves, but to be honest, we had no problem with any of them.

We lived just down the road from the town centre, so I often went for walks with Aaron down there to meet people.

Aaron loved the walks and seeing everything around town.

I loved meeting new people, and they loved Aaron. I was quite enjoying my new life here in Moonlight Falls, and soon it was Aaron’s birthday.

He was such a handsome little man! My little boy was ready to start school. I was glad we had moved before he did, it would’ve been a major upheaval for him to move schools and leave his friends behind.

It was only a week after his birthday that I got a call from Bradley, saying that he was in town, and that we should meet up. I agreed, and told him to meet me at the town centre that night.

I sat by the fountain waiting for him, and when I saw him I smiled despite myself and felt my heart flutter a little.

We talked for awhile, and he said he had moved here because he had found a job here. It was weird how we came together to the same place.

“So, Eilidh… It’s been awhile since we met each other back in Hidden Springs… do you think… do you want to go out on a date tomorrow?” he asked. I nodded, grinning.

“You know, that sounds like a great idea,” I agreed.

The next night we went out on our date. We went to Moonlight Point. We talked for awhile before he grabbed my hand.

“Eilidh, I understand if you don’t want to, but I really do like you. You are amazing, and I want to meet your son and everything. Will you be my girlfriend?” he asked. I grinned.

“Of course,” I said.

He soon met Aaron, and they got along great. Bradley was caring, considerate, and absolutely incredible. We were very happy. I was very hesitant about the whole thing, but over a few months he gained my trust.

On the anniversary of our first date, we decided to simply stroll through town. We reached the town centre, and he dragged me over to the fountain.

He then got down on one knee, and I stared at him, not wanting to believe it. This couldn’t be happening.

I was engaged! I was getting married to a man who truly loved me!

————————-

AN~ So I know it moved really fast but I have my reasons. One being that this isn’t really Eilidh’s story other than her own happy ending, and Eilidh’s story was the crap with Nicholas, and another being (and this is the best and most rational reason guys) BABIIIIIIIIIEEEEEESSSSSSSSSss. 

Anyway, I hope you guys are happy that Eilidh will be happy. I sure am.

Generation Eight Chapter Thirteen

 

“Never tell your father everything about this Nicholas, because he would rip him limb from limb. To be honest, I’d like to, as well,” Mum told me. I sighed. I had decided to come visit my parents in Hidden Springs. They were quite happy in this town, and I could understand why.

 

That was the view from the lookout at the top of Hidden Springs. It was a beautiful town.

“Mum, ripping him limb from limb isn’t going to do anything. I don’t even consider the relationship a mistake, because I now have Aaron. I love Aaron, you do too,” I said.

It was true. Mum and Dad absolutely doted on their grandson.

 

 

I loved watching them with him. They didn’t get to see any of their grandchildren much, so they were very happy to be spending a week with Aaron.

“That’s true. Aaron is a lovely little boy. You must be so proud of him,” Mum said. I nodded.

“It’s hard to believe he’ll be ready to start school soon. I really need to find a job or something to occupy my time,” I said.

“What about a new man?” Mum asked, laughing slightly. I rolled my eyes.

“I don’t think so,” I said. But she didn’t let it go.

Later that day, closer to the evening, Mum and I went to the pool across the road from their house.

 

It was nice to relax by the pool, leaving Aaron with Dad for awhile. I never really had time away from Aaron, and I realised now how much I needed it.

“Hey, Eilidh, what about that guy,” she asked, gesturing to a man that was getting into the pool at that moment.

 

“What about him?” I asked, confused.

“He’s attractive. Maybe you could talk to him,” she said, winking. I blushed.

“Mu-um,” I said. She chuckled.

“Go on. Just talk to the guy,” she said.

“You of all people telling me to get with a guy,” I said, shaking my head, “The world is coming to an end.” Mum laughed.

“I only want what’s best for you,” she said.

“I can’t do a relationship right now,” I replied, “But I’ll talk to him, anyway, to get you to shut up.” Mum laughed.

 

I changed into my bikini and made my way back to the pool, and swam over to him.

“Hey, wanna breath contest?” I asked, smirking over at my mother. I would obviously win it, but this guy didn’t know that.

“Sure,” he grinned. He obviously thought he was gonna win this.

 

 

 

I won, causing this guy to look disappointed and confused. After this I got out of the pool, but he followed me.

 

“How on earth could you hold your breath that long?” he asked.

“That’s my secret,” I said, grinning at him, “I’m Eilidh.”

“Bradley. Good to meet you. You’re not from around here, are you?” he asked. I shook my head.

“No, I’m visiting my parents. Are you from here?” I asked.

“Yeah, born and raised in Hidden Springs. Where are you from?”

“Starlight Shores,” I said. We continued talking for awhile. I told him about my son, and what Nicholas had done, and he seemed sympathetic, saying his sister had dated someone like that, too.  After we talked for awhile, I went home, confident I had made a new friend. I knew I wasn’t ready for any relationship, but another friend was always welcome.

On the last night of my stay, Bradley insisted on the two of us going out, reassuring me that it would be as friends. The nightlife in Hidden Springs was very sparse and wasn’t really what I was into now I was a mother. We strolled away the city centre. It was very beautiful. We stopped in the central park by the fountain.

 

“Look, Eilidh, I know you’re not ready for any relationship, and we don’t really know each other well, but I do want to let you know that I like you as much more than a friend. I’m perfectly happy remaining as friends, believe me, but I don’t want to lie to you about this,” he said. I nodded.

“I appreciate your honesty, Bradley. If it were at any other time, I’d more than welcome this, but Nicholas and I only just broke up, I have to get through this before I can even think about being in a relationship. Perhaps when I’ve gotten through everything, figured out where I am in life, we can revisit this, but for now, I can’t,” I said. Bradley smiled.

“I understand,” he said, “Can I kiss you, anyway?” I nodded.

“I would like that,” I said softly.

 

He pressed his lips against mine softly.

“I’m still your friend, and whenever you’re in Hidden Springs, let me know. And I’ll contact you when I’m in Starlight Shores,” he said. I nodded.

“Friends is good,” I said. He then took me back to Mum and Dad’s, and I went and snuggled Aaron.

 

Saying good bye to Mum and Dad meant a lot of last cuddles with Aaron before I insisted we had to leave to get back to Starlight Shores before light. I was sad to leave them, especially as the idea of home wasn’t very attractive. There was a taint of Nicholas in every room and every hallway.

 

When I got home I checked my emails and found that a job I’d applied for had contacted me. It seemed perfect – I could choose my hours, it was in web design and other computing things, but unfortunately they’d filled the position in Starlight Shores. There was a position available in Moonlight Falls, and they would love it if I could take that position. It was a start in one month’s time. It sounded perfect, and Moonlight Falls sounded like a good place to live. A new house, a new town. No Nicholas. It would make it unlikely that he could find me there.

I knew I had made my decision. I was going to move to Moonlight Falls.

Generation Eight Chapter Twelve

 

I’ll admit that I’m biased, but Aaron is the most adorable little boy ever. Everyone loved him, and he loved everyone.

 

Ambro especially seemed to love having a baby around the house. He said this was why he stuck around with his family.

“Why don’t you and Rose just have another baby?” I asked. He shrugged.

“We’ve had a lot of children. I don’t think Rose wants another one,” he said. I just smiled.

“It would be nice for Aaron to have a friend,” I said. He chuckled, and handed Aaron back to me.

“I’ll just content myself with Aaron for now. Why don’t you give Aaron a playmate, instead?” he said.

“Maybe later. I’m not ready yet,” I said.

Across the road was a pond with a small playground next to it, so one night I decided to take Aaron over there to have a play.

 

 

He was enjoying his ride on the seahorse when I realised there was a quite disturbing sound coming from the other side of the pond. Obviously not caring that it was a public park where people brought their children, there was a couple WooHooing over the other side. Aaron hadn’t heard anything, and I doubted he would know what was going on, so I gritted my teeth, and let him continue to play, because he quite enjoyed it.

 

After awhile I decided to head back home, and I glanced back over at the couple. Now they were making out, but at least they had some clothing on. It was as I thought that when I realised who the man was, and I felt the world freeze. It couldn’t be – he wouldn’t do that. I looked back at Aaron, then looked over again, and I knew it was. I would recognise him anywhere. I was about to run over there, let my hot-headedness take over, but I knew I didn’t want Aaron around when that happened. I gathered Aaron, and ran home.

He had told me he had work that night. He had claimed that he loved me, that he knew his previous mistakes were wrong, that it wasn’t going to happen again. He had lied. I had given him a second chance, and he had proved that he didn’t deserve it. But as I thought about it, I didn’t regret it – yes, he was a jerk, and he had hurt me, but that second chance had given me Aaron, and I wouldn’t give him up for the world.

I put Aaron in his room, letting him play, and waited for Nicholas to come home. When he got home, I listened as he went into the study to go onto the computer, and I followed him in there.

“I went to the park across the road earlier this evening, with Aaron,” I said calmly. His head snapped up, and he stared at me a moment, before smiling.

“Did you have fun?” he asked.

“Oh, yes, it was quite fun… until I realised that my boyfriend was across the pond screwing some other girl! Does she know you’re in a relationship? Probably not, you never told me you were married!”

“Eilidh…”

 

“NO! I gave you a second chance, and you do this! There are no third chances, Nicholas!” I yelled.

“W-what do you mean?” he asked.

 

“What do you think I mean? It’s OVER! I want you out of here, and I don’t want to see you again. And don’t even start on seeing Aaron, it’s not going to happen. And you can try to go to court, but I have family everywhere, Nicholas, you don’t even know,” I threatened, reaching a bit, but I didn’t want scum like that influencing my son. My son would be a much better man than him.

“Eilidh… he’s my son too,” he said.

“Funny that neither of your children seem that important to you when you destroy their families!” I yelled.

“You don’t understand-” SLAP

 

“Don’t even try that, Nicholas. Get out. GET OUT!” I screamed after slapping him. He stared at me, before walking out of the room to pack. Rather than look at him, I went downstairs to see my little boy.

 

“Oh, Aaron, I promise you that we can still be a family, even without him. I love you, Aaron, so much.”

Generation Eight Chapter Eleven

Nicholas and I had been back together for a year when I started to feel sick. I had my suspicions on what it was, and I was excited about the idea of being a mother, but I wasn’t too sure about how things would go with Nicholas. After what happened the last time his girlfriend got pregnant, I was a little hesitant to tell him, so I decided not to until I knew for sure.

It wasn’t long until it was confirmed, and I was ecstatic. I hadn’t realised before how happy I’d be at the thought of motherhood, but now that it was a definite, I was so happy to be a Mama.

Now I had to tell Nicholas.

Nicholas was happy too. I assured him that we didn’t have to marry – in fact, I told him that we shouldn’t unless we were both absolutely sure that we wanted it because of each other, not because of any baby. He agreed easily enough, and I could tell he became a lot more relaxed after that.

The summer came up quickly, and Katarina agreed to Leila spending a couple of weeks with us in Starlight Shores. I had to plan it with Katarina because Nicholas was still too scared to talk to her. Katarina and I got on great, after the awkwardness of our first conversation. She told me she thought I was an idiot for getting back with him after last time, but after that it was fine.

Nicholas was happy to see Leila again. Leila was very friendly, though it was obvious that she barely recognised Nicholas. I felt bad for Leila. I knew it must be hard for her.

Leila was a little unsure of me, but we eventually got to know each other.

She was a very sweet little girl, and Nicholas and I were both sad to say good-bye to her at the end of the two weeks. She made us promise to let her come back next summer so she could meet her little brother or sister. We agreed easily, sure that Katarina would have no problem with that.

Over the next few months we waited patiently for the baby to come. One night, Nicholas came to me, asking me to turn him. He wanted to spend forever with me, he said, and that that was a commitment with much more meaning. I agreed easily enough. If Nicholas wanted to be a vampire, then that was his choice to make.

And so I bit him, telling him it might take awhile but that I was pretty sure he was on his way to becoming a vampire.

As it got closer to the end of the nine months, Nicholas and I became more and more excited. He was already a father, but he was happy to have another child. And I couldn’t wait to hold my own little child in my arms.

Only two days before my due date, I went into labour. Nicholas was at work, so Rose took me to the hospital, and Nicholas met me there.

After many long painful hours, we finally had our son.

We named him Aaron. He was the most beautiful baby I had ever seen, but I knew I was biased in thinking that.

When we got home, I rocked him in the rocking chair, cradling him in my arms.

“Oh, my darling little boy, I love you so much. Never forget that,” I whispered, kissing his forehead. I loved Nicholas, but Aaron, my little boy Aaron, he was the real love of my life.

————————-

AN~ I’m a little surprised myself on how motherly Eilidh has become. I wasn’t expecting it. Yeah, she was obviously going to adore her son, but it seems like motherhood is really her thing. Anyway, I thought I’d share a toddler picture of Aaron with you all 🙂

 

I’ve sneaked a peak of him as an adult and he’s a good mix of Eilidh and Nicholas, and very good looking (in my opinion). I think he’s absolutely adorable, and look! He doesn’t have Rose’s eyes! About time! This alone makes me want to confirm to you all that he’s the heir, but I guess we’ll just have to see if there are any other babies and what they look like. 🙂

Generation Eight Chapter Ten

Part of me knew I was being an idiot. Nicholas had hurt me, and despite his reasons for it, it was still inexcusable. But I was still in love with him, and I wanted to give him another chance. I wanted him back in my life. I was determined to take it slowly, though I wasn’t sure how that would hold out.

 

We agreed to go out on a date. He picked me up from my place, and took us out to dinner at the only nice restaurant in Starlight Shores. It was a really lovely meal, and we had a good conversation. He told me about Leila, his daughter, who was almost old enough to go to school. He didn’t get to see her much. Katarina had gotten custody of her after the divorce, and wouldn’t let her travel to Starlight Shores, so he could only see her when he went to Sunset Valley. He couldn’t get there often due to work, and even when he didn’t have to work a lot, he knew it would only make things tense, and that Leila didn’t need to be around her parents arguing.

“You have a right to see your daughter, even if you are in the wrong,” I said. He shrugged.

“Leila is probably better off without me in her life, to be honest. I love her, but I hardly get to see her, she hardly recognises me,” he said. I sighed, wondering if there was more to the story, but we left it at that, moving the conversation onto more pleasant things.

 

After dinner, I kissed him lightly. I was hesitant at first, but I wanted to. Nicholas was a little surprised, and he smirked.

“You know, there’s still some of the date to go,” he said.

He took me down to the beach, where there is a nice little hangout.

 

It was there he gave me some gorgeous red flowers. He had never given me flowers before. They were beautiful though, and smelt wonderful.

 

 

We then danced a bit and had a drink before Nicholas dropped me back home.

When we got home, I was going to simply give him a good night kiss, and then say good-bye. He would call in a few days to arrange another date. That was what my plan was.

 

As his face got closer I remembered that promise to myself. But it was the minute we had kissed that all thoughts flew out of my head. It was a passionate kiss, one that reminded me of before. As we broke apart, I put my lips to his ears and whispered ‘my room is upstairs’.

 

—–

When I woke up, and saw Nicholas beside me in my bed, my memories of the previous night came flowing back. After I had been so determined to take things slowly, I had failed.

 

I went downstairs to talk to Rose. I had made the choice, freely, but I needed to get my feelings out about it. I wasn’t sure if I’d been stupid or if it was a good thing I’d let my body do things for me, rather than my mind. Maybe I was overthinking the whole thing.

Rose sighed when I told her.

“You can’t do anything about it now, hun. Stop thinking about the past, however recent that past was. Look to the future. What are you going to do now. Are you going to continue the same relationship with Nicholas?” she asked. I hesitated. I wasn’t sure.

It was then that I heard the computer upstairs start, and I went to the study to see Nicholas on the computer. Seeing him made my mind up.

 

He spun around, grinned, and got up out of the chair. I stepped forward, wrapped my arms around him, and kissed him. My mind was made up, whatever the consequences.

I didn’t find out the consequences for a few months.

Iris had come to visit for a week. I was really excited to see her.

 

I hugged her enthusiastically.

“It’s so good to see you!” I exclaimed. She grinned.

“It’s good to see you, it seems like it’s been ages!” she said. I took her into the living room to tell her about Nicholas before she saw him. He was practically living here now, though he still had his little place. I didn’t know why he bothered, but he was always at home when he wasn’t working.

 

I explained about the situation with Nicholas, and she thought I was an idiot. We decided not to let that small disagreement ruin the visit though.

When I was doing my study one afternoon, Iris went into town to take a good look around Starlight Shores, and Nicholas came in.

 

Things were getting a little heated when Iris walked in.

“For God’s sake,” she huffed. I frowned, pushing Nicholas away and walking closer to Iris.

“Are you okay?” I asked.

“I’ve been biting my tongue, trying not to tell you how I feel about this, but I think you’re a complete idiot!”

 

Nicholas decided it was his time to leave the room.

“Iris…”

“No, Eilidh. You were completely devastated, and you just let him back in to your life. You’re making a huge mistake, you’re being so stupid!” she said.

“I love him, Iris,” I said.

“You know what? I’m not going to sit around and watch my best friend make the worst mistake of her life. I think I’ll leave early. Maybe I’ll see you when this whole thing falls to pieces,” she said, and stalked out of the room.

“No. You won’t see me again. I don’t ever want to see you again. What good is a friend that doesn’t support me even when she disagrees!” I wasn’t sure if she heard me, but I went to find Nicholas, who had started to work out in the lounge.

 

 

I complained a bit, and then he comforted me. I felt very safe and comfortable in his arms. Iris thought I was making a mistake, but I didn’t think so. Nicholas wasn’t going to make the same mistakes as last time. He loved me, I loved him, and we were happy.

Generation Eight Chapter Nine

After living in Bridgeport, I had thought living back home in Starlight Shores would be boring, but it was anything but. I had quit my job, but I was taking an online course in website design. I was good with computers, and I loved the artsy part of it as well, so it was a good area for me. Still, though, I had forever to find where I should be.

I was spending a lot of time with my little adorable niece and nephew. I knew me being there took a lot of pressure off Hamish and Mary. Hamish had to work a lot, and I know Mary really appreciated me being there for park trips and other things. Twins were a big handful.

I was also getting to know the Starlight Shores nightlife. Though it didn’t have nearly as much to offer as Bridgeport, it was still pretty good. One of my favourite places was the karaoke bar. Yes, most of the people doing karaoke were terrible, but it was great to go. It was a very welcoming feeling at the local karaoke bar.

One night I was at the karaoke bar, when I felt a tap on my shoulders and I spun around to see the last person on earth that I wanted to see.

“Eilidh!” he said happily, as if he hadn’t completely broke my heart, “How are you? Are you visiting home? How are your family?” I glared at him.

“I live here, now. I’m fine, no thanks to you,” I said coldly. He gulped.

“Look, Eilidh, I’m sorry-” he started but I cut him off.

“Oh save it for someone who’ll listen,” I snapped. He looked slightly taken aback.

“Please, just let me explain, Eilidh,” Nicholas said. I shook my head and I couldn’t hold back my anger.

I slapped him.

“I said save it. Do you have any idea what you did to me? No, not at all. Just get away from me, Nicholas. I don’t want to see your face again!” I yelled. He sighed.

“I guess I did deserve that,” he said, “I was a jerk, and I know that. I love you, Eilidh, and I know I should’ve left Katarina before I got involved with you but I fell for you and I wasn’t thinking.”

“Oh, shut up,” I said.

“Please, Eilidh. Place can I explain?” he asked.

“No. Now go away,” I said. I walked over to the other side of the room, furious. Why did he have to be here? Why was he even here? Was he following me? He knew I was from Starlight Shores, that my family lived there. Had he gone by the apartment and realised I wasn’t there anymore? Was he just feigning surprise to see me there?

I knew one thing, though. He had completely ruined the night for me.

I went home, my head full of thoughts of that jerk, who I had left Bridgeport because. He claimed that he loved me, but I doubt he even knew what that meant. I had loved him. He had been my first serious boyfriend. He had taken my heart and then ripped it into tiny pieces. And he was expecting me to listen to him? There was nothing to listen to! Our whole relationship was a lie.

A few weeks went by, and Mary came to me to tell me that she and Hamish were moving out.

“With the money Hamish has saved from work we found a place, and we really appreciate everything you’ve done for us, but we need our own place. You can visit a lot, I know Janie and Georgie will miss their Aunt Eilidh – are you okay?” she said. I hesitated, and before I knew it, I had told Mary everything. She looked at me pityingly, before sighing.

“Please don’t yell at me, but I think you should let him explain. Once he’s explained, maybe it will take things off your mind. This has been weighing you down for a long time. He’s a jerk, and you should never let Hamish or your father know him about this because they will rip him to shreds, but just let him say his bit and maybe you’ll stop thinking about it as much,” she said. I frowned, but I knew she was right.

So later that day I called him hesitantly. I wasn’t sure why I had his number in my phone still, but there it was.

“Eilidh? I wasn’t expecting you to call,” he said.

“I’m going to let you explain,” was all I said in response. We arranged a time for him to come over to the house, which I was very hesitant about, but I eventually agreed to. It was all set. I was going to have my answers, then he was going to get out my life and out of my thoughts.

 

That night he came into the house and I took him into the lounge. I looked at him, before sitting down.

“Explain, then,” I said.

“Well, I guess I’ll have to go back to the beginning. Katarina and I started dating in college. We had both grown up together in Sunset Valley, but hadn’t paid much attention to each other until we ended up at the same college knowing no one but each other. We became friends, and near the end of college we got together, because it seemed natural. But after college, Katarina was going back to Sunset Valley and I was going to Bridgeport. I felt that was lucky. I didn’t really love Katarina. I liked her well enough, but I knew if we continued to be together I would come to hate her because I didn’t love her. I found us going to separate places as an easy way to break it off. I was going to, but then Katarina told me she was pregnant. I couldn’t break it off then. There was only one thing I could do. We got married quickly and moved to Sunset Valley, but I resented it. Not my girl. My little Leila was beautiful, the best of Katarina and I, but I was grateful when my job had me spend as much time in Bridgeport as I did in Sunset Valley. I began to hate my wife, feeling as if she had trapped me into a loveless marriage. I felt stuck, and my time in Bridgeport felt as if I were in another life, the life I should’ve had, if it weren’t for Leila. I know, what I did was wrong, and I’m a terrible person, but you have to understand that I felt my life was stolen from me, and you were part of that life that I should’ve had – I’m sorry,” he said. I sighed.

“Look – shit happens. But just because she was pregnant didn’t mean you should’ve married her. When you knew the marriage wasn’t working, you shouldn’t have stayed married to her. That was unfair to Katarina and to your daughter. I do understand though – in a way. You handled it badly, but it was… I don’t know. Maybe I don’t hate you so much now,” I said softly. He looked at me.

“So much. I guess you don’t want to give us another chance, then? I promise I’m not married,” he said.

“Maybe we can be friends,” I said. He nodded.

I stood up and walked towards the door to let him out, when he reached out and tried to turn me around.

 

He leaned in to kiss me, and I pushed him away.

“Let’s not ruin it, huh?” I said. He nodded.

“Sorry,” he replied.

“So, why are you Starlight Shores anyway?” I asked as we walked towards the door.

“My job transferred me here. Believe me, it wasn’t my choice. I was as surprised to see you as you were to see me,” Nicholas said. I nodded.

“Well, maybe it’s a good thing. That way I got my explanation that I needed, and maybe you have a friend in a strange place,” I said. He smiled, before walking out the door.

“Good night, Eilidh,” he said.

“Bye.” I watched him leave, and headed upstairs, deciding that a nice night swim would help me clear my mind.

 

The water was nice and cool and exactly what I needed. Relaxing, and it helped me put my thoughts together. Yes, Nicholas had behaved badly, but he had tried to do the right thing with Katarina. I understood why he did what he did, even if it had hurt myself and Katarina in the process. But mostly, I realised something else.

I was still in love with him, despite what he had done.

————————-

AN~ So this was a very word-heavy picture-light chapter. But it’s here. I got my computer back, obviously, so updates should be fairly regular again, especially since I’m nearly done with all my current assignments and I have a two week break in two weeks. 

Anyway, I’ve been sitting on this for awhile, which I guess is why there are so many words. I’m not sorry though, I’m glad to have more stuff out in the open. It will be interesting to see reactions though make sure to tell me what you think of Nicholas. Personally, I still think it was a douche move, but you know, Eilidh loves him, and the heat wants what the heart wants 😛
