Please Stay With Me
The rest of trip was smooth sailing surprisingly. My family showed nothing but support and happiness to know that there would soon be a little Payne in the family. The rest of the week was filled with lots of laughs and not to mention food. With my mum knowing Gabby was pregnant she was delighted that she got the chance to bake. Gabby has been craving a ton of sweet things lately, so I honestly felt like I gained about ten pounds this week. Gabriella has yet to call her parents and even though she wont admit it, I know its bothering her. I didn't want to bring it up to her because I didn't want to upset her, she’s very emotional right now.
It was the last day of our trip and I honestly wasn't ready to go back to London. It was so peaceful here, no drama, nothing but blissfulness. I was woken up by the sun shining into my bedroom. Gabby was still snuggled into my chest and I didn't want to move because I didn't want to wake her up. I looked at her and she looked so peaceful as she slept. I loved to just look at her, I know that sounds weird but she was so beautiful. Despite all the chaos happening back home, this is honestly the happiest I’ve ever been in my life. I tried my best to be quite not move much but I moved from laying on my back to my side. I kissed her lips lightly and she scrunched her nose and opened her eyes. When I saw she was up I kissed her again and she giggled.
“Your beard is tickling me babe.” I kissed her again making her giggle.
“I’m sorry baby, I know I need to shave.” I laughed at her comment.
“No don’t shave, I like it.” I raised my eyebrow at her.
“Yeah I mean of course, shave when you absolutely need to, but I love it like this. I find it pretty sexy to be honest.”
“Oh really? My scruff is sexy to you?” I rolled us over so I was now on top of her. I had to put all my weight on my forearms so I didn't crush her.
“Very.” She kissed my lips. “I love your lips too.” She kissed me again and pulled on my bottom lip with her teeth teasing me slightly.
“Well you know what? I think everything about you is sexy.” She huffed and pushed me off of her.
“Liam please. I’m getting so fat, and I pretty much never put on makeup or fix myself up anymore.”
“Baby you’re not fat, you’re pregnant. Anyways you don’t need makeup you're just naturally beautiful.” She rolled her eyes.
“You’re saying that because you have to.” She frowned and look down and I grabbed her chin and lifted her face up so she could look at me.
“You’re very beautiful. Don’t ever think or let anybody tell you differently. I happen to think you're very sexy. Especially right now when you're wearing my clothes.” I smirked.
Gabby loves to sleep in my shirts and I love seeing her in them even more. I kissed her lips and we leaned back on the bed. I hovered over her and began kissing her again. I slipped my hand underneath the shirt she was wearing and slipped it off her. She looked so beautiful and I could see her baby bump. It got some what bigger, but you can hardly see it in the baggy clothes she wears. She kissed me more aggressively and slid down my shorts. We kissed for a while, and I felt myself growing harder as the minutes passed. I started leaving kisses all the way down her body and just as I was about to slide her underwear down her legs we were interrupted by a knock on the door. Gabby and I both jumped and scrambled to put our clothes back on.
“Are you guys awake? Mum made breakfast!” Ruth shouted.
“Yeah we’ll be down in a minute!” I sighed. It was impossible for us to be intimate what so ever. I missed being with her, I craved her touch, I needed to have her.
“Rain check?” Gabby asked looking disappointed, I understand I was also.
“Yeah.” I smiled and kissed her again.
We both walked downstairs together. My mum had made a delicious looking breakfast and when Gabby got a whiff of the bacon, she immediately lost all color in her face. She ran to the bathroom as fast as she could. I followed her and held her hair back and she threw up all of the contents that were in her stomach. She groaned over the toilet and I rubbed her back to help comfort her. She leaned against the wall and groaned again.
“I never want to look at meat again. Does this morning sickness ever go away?”
“I know its hard baby but it will all be worth it soon.” my mum walked into the bathroom and saw that Gabby had gotten sick.
“It gets better love, the first trimester is always the worst.”
“Any smell of meat makes her sick mum.”
“Oh I was like that when I was pregnant with you Liam. Even the sight of meat made me sick.” She looked at Gabby and smiled. “How about some tea love? It might help settle your stomach.”
“Thank you so much Karen.” I helped Gabby up and we all walked into the kitchen and continued with breakfast.
After many hugs and good byes, Gabriella and I were fixing to go back home. My mom made her promise to call if she ever needs help and when she finds out the sex of the baby. My sisters as well insisted that she call them if she need any help at all. My dad hugged us both and told us to let him know if we needed anything as well. We all said our final good byes and headed out. Gabriella didn't know this but I had been in contact with her mother. She began to notice that we arrived at her house, she looked surprised and slightly angry.
“Liam what are we doing here?”
“We are both going to resolve things with your parents.”
“No I’m not. I want to go home so lets leave now.” She was so stubborn sometimes, it was like talking to a wall and trying to get it to change its mind.
“Yes you are.” I turned off the car. “They want to talk to you.”
“So? I have nothing to say to them.”
“I know that not true. I can see its hurting you.”
“I’m not getting out.”
“Do it for me and for the baby. Do you really want our baby to not see his other set of grandparents?” She huffed and crossed her arms.
“They have ten minutes and if they make me mad anytime in between then we are leaving.”
“Okay thats fine. Just be open minded and try to listen to what they have to say without getting angry.”
“Not making any promises.” She got out of the car and slammed the door.
Lets just hope this goes well and doesn't backfire in my face.
I was so mad that I was basically being forced to talk to my parents. I knew Liam’s intentions were good but I still didn't want to reconcile just yet. My father made me feel like shit just for being pregnant. It’s not like I’m alone and have no idea who the father is. Even if that was the case, parents are supposed to love and support their child no matter what the situation and thats exactly what I wasn't getting from my parents. This is when I needed them the most and they weren't there for me.
I walked inside to see all my family sitting on the couch. Like they were waiting for me. My mother was the first person to stand up. Next were my brothers and my dad remainder sitting down.
“Gabby! I’m so glad you came.” My mother said.
“Well make this fast, you have ten minutes or else I’m leaving.” I wasn't in the mood to be here and the faster I got this over with the quicker I could leave. My father finally stood up and walked closer to me but I moved back not wanting to be close to him.
“Gabriella I’m the one who really wanted to apologize. The way I acted the other day was wrong of me.” He sighed. “I also wanted to apologize to you Liam. I know you’re not a bad guy and my daughter picked the right person to have a child with. I know you care about my daughter deeply and I know you’re going to take care of them.”
“It’s okay sir.” Liam said, he was so forgiving. I wish I could be more like him at times.
“No Liam its not okay.” I felt tears start to form in my eyes. “Dad you made me feel like complete shit for getting pregnant. You said you’ve never been so disappointed in one of your children. You made me feel like this baby was a mistake. You asked what were going to do as if my baby was a problem we could just get rid of and everything would be done with. And you insulted the man who I love more than anything dad.” I was fully crying now. “You hurt me dad.”
Liam pulled me into his chest and let me cry. My mom and brothers all came and hugged me offering comfort.
“Liam I want to leave.” I sobbed into his chest.
“Okay we can leave.” He kissed the top of my head.
“Gabriella.” my dad said getting choked up I could tell he was crying also. This was a first. “Please don’t leave without knowing how sorry I am. Your baby is far from a mistake, your baby is a miracle. I’m sorry I didn't realize that to begin with. Just finding out you were pregnant made me realize how you’re not my little girl anymore. It made me realize that you no longer need me anymore. You’re a grown woman now and soon you’ll have your own family. You being pregnant just made me remember how young your mother and I were. But deep in my heart I know you and Liam are going to be amazing parents. You’re going to be an amazing mother just like your mum was. I want to be apart of my grandchild's life Gabriella. Anything you or Liam need feel free to ask. Well will all be here for you Gabriella. You’re my daughter and I love you no matter what. I understand if you aren't ready to forgive me or if you’re not even ready to talk to me.”
At this point everyone including Liam was crying. I never expected my father to just lay everything out on the table and be completely honest. He wasn't big on expressing his feelings, mostly like where I got it from. I didn't say anything, I didn't think I could with out crying even harder. I just walked over to him and hugged him. We stayed that way for a while and we still didn't speak. We didn't need to, we knew everything was going to be okay. I was still angry at him but I forgave him. Right now forgiveness is whats most important.
After finally saying our final goodbyes filled with lots of tears and kisses Liam and I were finally headed back home.
“Thank you.” I whispered.
“For what babe?”
“For making me do this.” He smiled at me and kissed me. We pulled apart and revered out of the drive way. Before we drove off Liam spoke again.
“I love you Gabriella.” That made me smile.
“I love you too.”
Everything was blissful right now and I hoped it stayed this way. And it would stay this way at least until we got back to London.
Hope you enjoy this chapter! Please comment and tell me what you want the baby to be!! Thank you for reading and I love you all!
