Hey everyone! Things are starting to unfold for Arabelle...or are they? haha. This chapter was pretty fun to write so I hope you all enjoy it! Dillon and I awkwardly walk out to the street. As we reach his car we turn to face each other, bracing for the goodbye that is about to come. “Are you sure this is what you want?” Dillon asks.
I hesitate before whispering ‘yes.’
“I don’t believe you,” he says.
I look at him not knowing what to say.
An arm wraps around my waist and I jump in fright. I turn and realize Mike has joined us. He kisses my cheek and ignores Dillon. I notice Dillon’s jaw tense as he stares harshly at Mike.
“If you ever need anything… anything at all, you have my number” Dillon tells me.
“Thanks mate, but I’ve got it from here” Mike says slyly.
I hear Dillon groan but he ignores Mike.
Dillon looks at me affectionately one last time before getting into his car and drives away. Part of me wonders if I will ever see him again, I know I don’t deserve to. That night Mike moves his things into the spare bedroom I am staying in.
“I have missed you so much babe,” Mike says as he leans down and presses his body against mine, pushing me onto the bed. His lips meet mine and he puts his hands on my body.
He kisses me passionately but something within me pushes him away. “I’m not feeling well, I don’t know what’s wrong,” I tell him.
He sits up and exhales loudly running his fingers through his hair.
I begin to move off the bed but he grabs my dress and pulls me back down into an embrace.
I let out a girly squeal. He lathers my cheeks in playful kisses.
“I can wait,” he whispers in my ear.
I turn to him with a smile “I love you” and kiss him on the lips.
Mike turns off the light and we lay in bed cuddling, kissing, talking and laughing. It feels so good to have him back. Shortly after I fall asleep in his arms. In the morning we leave my parents house and arrive back in the house Mike and I used to live in.
“Welcome home gorgeous” he says with a kiss.
It felt so strange to be back in this house, I had been on such a journey over the last couple of months.
“I need to go and run a few errands but I wont be too long” he tells me.
He gives me another kiss and I reluctantly agree to let him go.
I walk through the house alone, revisiting each room to refresh my memory. As I walk into the living room I see my piano and I break into an uncontrollable grin. I run over to it and run my fingers over the keys. Suddenly my smile turns into a frown. Thinking of the piano brought Dillon back into my mind. I sat at the piano and tears spilt down my cheeks. I chose the man that I wanted to be with so why was I so unhappy? I close the piano lid and walk away. The piano used to make me happy, but right now all it was making me think about was the things I had lost. 5 hours later Mike walks through the front door.
“Just a few errands huh?” I say slightly annoyed.
He walks over to me apologetically with roses in one hand.
“Where were you?” I interrogate.
“I was down at the office. I’ve been out of town looking for you for a few day so I had to check on things” he explains.
“Sorry” I tell him feeling like an idiot for being annoyed “I just thought we’d have the day together.”
He brings me into his arms and kisses my neck “I know, but we’ve still got the whole night ahead of us.”
I let out a small laugh and wrap his arms around my body “Sounds good” I whisper into his ear.
He drives me against the wall and pushes his body hard against mine. My breath comes fast with desire for him. He begins to undress me but I hesitate.
“What’s wrong?” he asks kissing my collarbone.
What WAS wrong with me? I took a breath to compose myself “Nothing, I’m all good” and I kiss him back.
I unbutton his shirt and run my fingers along his washboard abs. He grins and leans in to kiss me but I pull away.
“What is it?” he asks slighty frustrated.
“I don’t know” I tell him “I…I think I’m going to be sick.”
I push him away and run to the bathroom making it just in time.
When I’m done I turn around and see Mike standing in the doorway, I don’t like his expression.
“What’s wrong with you?” he asks for the third time, but this time there is no tenderness in his voice.
“Don’t speak to me like that!” I say, matching his tone “The least you could do is check if I’m alright.”
“Are you pregnant?” he asks disgustedly.
I look at him horrified “Excuse me?”
“You heard me,” he continues, “I know you’ve been with him.”
I give mike my coldest look. Why is he being like this? It is completely unlike him.
“I’ve only been with him once” I can’t believe we are talking about this “And I’m not an idiot Mike, morning sickness doesn’t strike this quickly.”
I storm past him out of the room.
I sit on my bed with a thousand thoughts rushing through my head. I didn’t know why I was sick, but what was more peculiar was the way Mike was acting. One minute he was hot, the next he was cold. Unexpectedly his arms come around me catching me off guard.
I turn to him “Don’t touch me. I think you should sleep in a different room tonight.”
He ignores me and moves me onto his lap.
“Mike!” I groan as I attempt to push him away but he holds me tight.
“I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have talked to you like that, or doubted you” he apologizes “I was just insanely jealous of you and…him.”
“Well you shouldn’t be” I snap “Am I with him right now? No, I chose you.”
“I know, and I’m a fool for treating you badly. Please forgive me Arabelle,” he pleads.
I look at him for a moment contemplating what he has just said. He completely had crossed the line but I cared about him and knew this whole situation had been hard on him. Maybe I needed to be more understanding of him.
“Don’t do it again,” I say hesitantly.
When I wake in the morning I roll over to cuddle Mike but all I find is a note on his pillow.
“Good morning Beautiful, I have been called into the office. Hopefully I wont be too long. Love you, Mike.”
I sigh and roll back over, his gone again? We had hardly spent any time together since my memory had returned.
I get up to make some breakfast but find I still can’t stomach too much. I try to take it easy for the day and watch some TV for a couple of hours. As I go to make some lunch I walk through the living room and my eyes stumble on my piano. I stare at it for a long moment, tears come to my eyes and I let out a scream as I throw a glass at it, smashing it into hundreds of tiny pieces. I run up to my bedroom crying. I sit against my bed, curled into a ball and sob uncontrollably. Everything in my life was out of control, I missed Dillon and feared Mike wasn’t the same man I used to love. Within a matter of time I cry myself to sleep. Dreams come into my head, or possibly more memories… I look at myself in the mirror and turn around in shock when I see Mike’s reflection behind me.
“What are you doing here?” I laugh, “You’re not allowed to see me yet!”
He walks in close and kisses me deeply “I couldn’t control myself.”
I pull back from his lips “You know it’s bad luck for the groom to see the bride.”
“Screw the rules,” he says passionately, reminding me of why I love him so much. He grabs my hands leading me out of the room.
We stand on the beach.
“Mike, what are we doing here?” I ask, “We’re getting married in an hour.”
He turns to me with a strange expression, one I’ve never seen him wear before “Come on Arabelle, tell me the truth.”
I laugh nervously in confusion and touch his hand “Mike, what are you talking about?”
“I know. I know about you and that man,” he says in a frightening tone.
I look at him in confusion and grow wary of him “What man?”
“Don’t play dumb with me! Dillon! I know about the two of you,” he shouts psychotically.
“Dillon? I don’t even know anyone by that name!” I scream back.
Before I can comprehend anything else Mike backhands me and I collapse onto the sand, waves crashing over me. I violently wake up in a cold sweat and try to catch my breath. The events of my accident had just come back to me and I suddenly realize why I have been feeling so sick in Mike’s presence lately. I hear the bedroom door creak open and I turn around to see Mike watching me suspiciously.
“What’s the matter sweetheart, bad dream?”

#2blackrose538Oct 21, 2013

you know... I kinda figured something like that had happened.
I can't wait to read more of this story! I wonder how Arabelle's gonna be sorting this out.

Great job! :-)

#3NisukiOct 21, 2013

Hm.. Just as blackrose538 said, I knew something like that had happened too. \:eek\: IM REALLY REALLY GLAD SHE REMEMBERS IT AGAIN. Better leave that man, Belle! \:mad\:

#4katwoman3Oct 21, 2013

I figured Mike was bad news, but he's a total nightmare. No wonder she's been physically ill! I hope Arabelle comes to her senses and gets away from him before he does something worse.

Coming out of lurk-mode to say I enjoy this story. Hope you post the next chapter soon! \:\)

#5MarijaJOct 22, 2013

I agree with katwoman3! \:mad\: Whoa, Dillon and she already knew each other? Oh man, no wonder he was with her the whole time. Ugh Mike is such a jerk! I hope she'll do the right thing.
Rated 5/5. \:wub\:

Agree with you all! Make one soon\:wub\:
