I woke up in the middle of the night.

I yawned and stretched, turning over to put my arm around Maddy. She shifted in her sleep, her blue eyes flashing open momentarily. I jerked my head back, waking up fully. Maddy had green eyes, not blue. I rubbed my face, trying to shake off the last entrails of sleep that clouded my vision. Lying next to my, sleeping peacefully, was Penelope.

I woke up in the middle of the night.

I yawned and stretched, turning over to put my arm around Maddy. She shifted in her sleep, her blue eyes flashing open momentarily. I jerked my head back, waking up fully. Maddy had green eyes, not blue. I rubbed my face, trying to shake off the last entrails of sleep that clouded my vision. Lying next to my, sleeping peacefully, was Penelope.
Memories from last night poured into my mind.

I sat up sharply and Penelope stirred once more. What was I doing here? Why had I done that?! I had to leave, I had to get away. Before I tried to convince myself to stay. I picked up my clothes and pulled them on in a hurry. As silently as I could I went down the stairs and clicked the door shut behind me.
"Maddy, I'm so sorry!"

She had been waiting up for me and had fallen asleep on the sofa in exhaustion.
"Where have you been?" she exclaimed. "It's three in the morning!"
"I'm sorry," I repeated "I just got carried away at work and couldn't leave until I finished it."
I looked down at the ground, the lie burning on my lips. When I looked up again, her gaze was sympathetic.
"It's okay, as long as you're here now."

Regret filled my heart. Why did I have to make this choice? On one hand was Maddy, the girl I married, the mother of my child. She was the best thing that had ever happened to me without sounding too cliche. She was pretty and kind and always there when I needed her. I suppose she's my best friend as well as my wife...
But then there's Penelope.

The girl I dreamed about for half my teenage years. She's beautiful and mind-blowing. And now I have her I can hardly just let her go again. That would be crazy not to mention stupid. Even though I feel so guilty when I see Maddy, I still can't control that bit of my mind that aches for Penelope. I know I will never be able to tame it...
So what am I to do?

I seem so vain, so self-assured complaining that I have two woman to choose between. But unless you know what it's like to love two people you can't judge me.
"Hun, breakfast's on the table!" Maddy called up to me in the morning.
Her voice and the smell of pancakes drifting up the stairs broke my thoughts. And suddenly I knew what to do...
What has Tom decided? Find out in Part Five!

Thanks for all the comments guys! I'm really glad you enjoy my stuff! :D

It's obvious that Tom will pick Penelope and then Maddy will come back and covince him to stay with her and their kid but Penelope will get pregnant so Tom and Penelope will ive happily ever after

What!?! So these two young women will get pregnant just for this guy. I say that they'll end up with their wive and husband because they don't want to hurt them, but they will think about each other for years after that.
