"Zach... can you leave a moment? Fetch me some chocolate or something" I whisper.
"Uh, sure" he says leaving with a confused frown but he's so clearly annoyed. I take Robbie's hand in my free one and stare down at them.
"I-I have to tell you something, Robbie" I whisper already beginning to cry. I have to tell him the truth. He deserves the truth, nothing less.
"Whatis it?" he asks tilting up my face. I burst into tears.
"I'm-I'm so so sorry" I wail.
"Jess, you're scaring me" he says pulling me into a hug.
"I slept with Zach" I cry. I feel Robbie flinch but for a moment he's still before slowly pulling away. "It's why I fell down the stairs. I was trying to leave and....." I burst into tears again.
"I never stopped loving him but I love you more. I do, Robbie, I need you to believe me. I wouldn't of ran out otherwise. I knew I'd made a mistake. Please don't leave me"
"Jess, I brough you.... chocolate" Zach trails off as he comes back in. "You told him?"
"Yes" I sob clinging onto Robbie's hand still in mine.
"Well, then don't you think you should leave, Robbie" Zach says harshly.
"And why would that be?" Robbie whispers.
"Cause she loves me and that my child" Zach says smugly.
"Get out, Zach" Robbie whispers.
"Huh?" he says confused.
"GET OUT! Before I throw you out" Robbie yells. Look at Zach in a fury Robbie tightens his grip on my hand. "She's not yours and god damn I am going to fight for parental custody over this child"
Zach stares shocked. I stare shock. Then slowly Zach begins to leave. "Lets see you try"
"Robbie, I-" he shakes his head silencing me.
"Not now, Jess" he whispers resting his head on my shoulder. "I wont leave you but god damnit you're gonna have to earn my trust back"
