I got the text as Ranette and I made our way home. She kissed me and said she was fine with it. I wasn't too sure, I mean, how would it be fair if Lilianna grew up without even knowing one of her mummy's girlfriends? But I did want to see her.
I text Annie back.
Yeah, I'd love to see her. Where and when?
Tomorrow, the old house
See you there. And Annie... I'm sorry for everything, but we just weren't meant to be. And after all, you did go and get engaged to a guy you hardly knew. It's not like I could stand in the way of your happiness is it? You looked like you knew what you wanted, so I let you go. X
I sighed and collapsed on the bed at home. Ranette crept up to me and gave me a kiss.
"Don't worry about it hon. You deserve to see the kid."
"I know. Come here you." I hugged her and kissed her head. She stroked my hair as she kissed me back.
"I love you Rosa." I stiffened. "I don't expect you to love me...I know how you are. But I do love you." She settled in to my arms and fell asleep.
"I love you too" I muttered, and I meant it.
