Chapter 21 :
I had to make Jeremy put Kim in her crib .I couldn’t bear to look at my daughter with those bruises .Its not that I didn’t love her , it was just very heartbreaking .I waited for Jeremy to come down stairs .
‘hayls she’s ok ,I promise .’ He said ,smiling slightly at me .
‘Call Josh.’ Was the only words that I managed to choke out.
Jeremy dialled the number and we waited for Josh to come over .When I answered the door ,I couldn’t even talk to him .I just walked away and went to sit by Jeremy, curling up against his chest .
‘So whats this about?’ Josh said sitting in the chair across from us.
‘Like you don’t know !’ I spat at him ,tears welling up in my eyes .
‘Josh .’ Jeremy started . ‘ how could you do that to your daughter ,your only child?’
‘Im sorry but what are you talking about ?’ Josh said his face showing no emotion.
‘The bruises Josh ,for Gods sake !’ I screamed
‘Bruises? Hayley I have no clue what the hell you two are talking about .’ Josh said ,raising his arms .
‘Why lie Josh ? of all the times why now?’ I cried
I heard Kim cry from upstairs and looked at Jeremy ,pleading with him for her to go get her .He got up silently and went to fetch Kim ,giving me a smile of reassurance .
I looked at Josh ,biting my thumb .waiting for an explanation . He got up and was about to walk to the door ,when I shot up and asked again .
‘why Josh ? do you want to permanently ruin my life ?’ I asked ,feeling tears roll down my face.
He didn’t say anything ,he just grabbed my wrist and pulled me in a hug .I was too shocked to do anything ,I didn’t put my arms around him ,I just stood dead still .When I felt his lips against my head ,my whole body went stiff .
‘Hayley?’ I heard Jeremys voice from the side .
I pulled away from Josh to look at Jeremy ,whos eyes showed shock and a hint of hurt from not exactly knowing what just happened .
‘Uh I better go .’ Josh said .
I turned to him and watched him go .Then turned to Jeremy .
‘Hayles ,what was that ? you hated his guts?’ He asked
‘I don’t know’ I answered .
‘Are you cheating on me with him?’ He asked ,a edge to his voice.
‘No!’ I answered immediately .
‘Would you go back to him ?’ He asked
‘I don’t know.’ I said again ,more tears running down my face .
‘Well then ...I guess I should go.’ Jeremy said looking at the floor .
‘When are you going to come home?’ I asked ,almost pleading .
‘I don’t know.’ He said brushing past me .
‘Jeremy please !’ I said grabbing his wrist . ‘you saw nothing ,nothing even happened .’
‘But you would go back to him in a heartbeat Hayley ,thats the difference.’ He said not even looking at me .
He made me let go of his wrist and walked out the door . I just stared after him ,letting the tears run ,not knowing when they would stop .
Josh p.o.v :
As I was walking back to my house ,I heard a door slam behind me .I turned around to see Jeremy get into his car and speed off .I could slightly see a figure in the window ,that was obviously Hayley ,she wasn’t moving just standing there .Then she suddenly moved out of it .I carried on walking ,knowing that her and Jeremy wouldn’t last to long .
I got in my car and raced down the road ,trying not to think of Hayleys tear stained face as I left her standing in the living room ,her tear stained face .I wasn’t leaving for good ,I just needed a couple hours to cool down and clear my head .
I walked up to Kims room and up to her crib ,I stroked her cheek and saw a tear fell next to her .She stirred a bit but went straight back to a deep sleep .
‘Im so sorry ,I love you.’ I said ,kissing her cheeks
I walked away and into bedroom. I opened my bedside drawer and pulled out a pill bottle that used to be Chads ,I checked the label it was his sleeping pills that he used when he come back from tour and couldn’t get the jet lag to go away .
I poured about thirty pills into my hand and took them all with a glass of water .I layed down on my bed and waited for sleep to take over me .I could feel it coming quickly as my whole body started to become limp. Before I went fully under I heard a soft crying from down the hall but couldn’t do anything about it.
I came home a few hours later .I had gone to the local bar and just chilled for a few hours . I walked through the door ,ready to apologise to Hayley.I stopped in my tracks ,when I heard screams from Kimberlys room ,they were coming from Kimberly to . I wondered where Hayley was ,surely she wouldn’t just leave Kimberly? I checked the little bowl on the table and Hayleys phone and keys were still here.
I ran up to Kimberlys room and found her sitting in her crib crying .I went to soothe her and once she calmed down went into mine and Hayleys room .
She was lying on the bed ,facing away from me . I went to lie next her .I put my arm around her ....and she was ice cold .I checked her lips and they were pale ,even for Hayley .Something caught my eye and I looked up to the bedside table ,there was a glass of water and a pill bottle ,I checked the label and they were sleeping pills for Chad Gilbert .Nearly the whole bottle was empty ...
Chapter 22 :
Jeremys p.o.v :
I picked Hayley up and ran downstairs .I opened the car and put her on the back seat .I screamed for Josh and a few minutes later he opened his door and was looking for me .I screamed for him to hurry up . I ran back upstairs and fetched Kimberly .I quickly put her in her car seat and jumped in the backseat holding Hayley to my chest .I screamed at Josh to get in the car and drive to the hospital.
‘Josh hurry up.’ I screamed .
‘Im going as fast as I can.’ He said hitting the steering wheel.
We got to the hospital shortly .I jumped out of the car ,pulling Hayley with me .
I left Josh behind knowing he would get Kimberly.
I ran into the Hospital . ‘Someone help ,my girlfriend swallowed pills!’
I felt Hayley stir in my arms . ‘Hayles ,wake up please !’
Doctors came along with a stretcher as I watched them take her away .
‘Dude what the hell ! Go after her ,I have Kimberly ,I will wait here.’ Josh said running up behind me .
I didn’t even answer him , I took off running ,after the stretcher that had Hayley on .I watched from outside the room as they pumped her stomach .I just wanted to be with her ,hoping she wouldn’t wake up terrified .Once they were done they let me in to see her .
I didn’t leave her side at all .Josh came to give me Kimberly and sat at the end of Hayleys bed not saying a word .
‘Mr Davis ?’ The doctor said walking in .
I layed a sleeping Kimberly on the empty bed next to Hayleys .
‘Yes?’ I asked concerned .
‘Miss Williams is ok for now .Her vitals are good but she took alot of sleeping tablets ,so we are going to keep her over night and see how she does ...but Mr Davis ,I have some bad news as well .Miss Williams was pregnant and with the amount of pills she took ...it killed the baby ...Im sorry.’ The doctor said before walking out.
I felt myself sink into the chair and take Hayleys hand .I stared at my empty hand .
‘Im so sorry dude .’ Josh said moving to my side.
‘I better go.’ Josh muttered before walking out .
‘Hayley I am so sorry ,I should’ve never left like that .I wouldn’t have killed our baby ,our baby....’
Hayley p.o.v :
I could hear crying somewhere distant .I couldn’t bring myself to open my eyes ,I felt like I was being held under by a weight .My hearing got clearer and I recognised the voice as Jeremys ,he was talking to me ...he was crying...
Thats when I figured I was dead ,the last I heard from Jeremy was when he walked out. I tried to listen closely to what Jeremy was saying ...our baby? We didn’t have a baby .I guess I had Kimberly and he was technically a father to her but this sounded different .
I tried moving my eyes ,opening them...
‘Je.’ I mumbled
I shifted in the bed but was held back from a huge pain coming from my stomach ,like I had been sick the whole time .
‘Hayley? Oh Hayley .Thank God .’ Jeremy sighed ,I felt his forehead against mind .
I tried shifting again but cried in pain .I could never take pain ...
‘Uh Hayles you have to stay still and try not move .’ Jeremy said .
‘Why?’ I looked around and looked back at Jeremy .
He understood what I meant . ‘Youre in hospital Hayles...you um swallowed pills and I nearly lost you....Please don’t ever do that again...
Chapter 23 :
Hayley p.o.v :
‘Why would you care ?’ I couldn’t believe how groggy I was and yet I could still be sarcastic .
‘Hayles ,please I just had to cool down .I don’t want to see you hurt anymore .It kills me when that happens and I definitely don’t want to see you hurt .’ Jeremy said ,his face full of apologies .
I just stared at him not knowing what to say .I guess he didn’t have to say anything at all ,because he took my hand and slipped a ring on it .It was simple white gold with a diamond in the middle .
‘Yes..’ I said automatically .
‘ I didn’t ask yet Hayles .’ He smiled .
‘You didn’t have to .’ I smiled back .
Jeremy leaned in and met my lips . ‘I Love you so much Hayles ,I cant wait to call you my wife .’
‘Hayley Davis ,it has a ring to it .’ I smiled .
Jeremy p.o.v :
I was going to propose after the wedding but after what happened today I couldn’t wait any longer . I couldn’t bring myself to tell Hayley about her miscarriage . It would tear her apart .I was tearing myself apart from even letting happen .
‘Jer is there something wrong ?’ Hayley asked me ,her forehead creasing .
‘No but you mustn’t stress or it will be bad .’ I said ,stroking her cheek .
‘I want you for a lifetime not only a week .’ I added .
‘Mr Davis ,visiting hours are over .’ a nurse said putting her head around the door .
‘Go Jer ,before you get in trouble .’ Hayley laughed . ‘And take care of my baby.’
I felt my face all when she said that .I pictured our little baby in her arms .
I plastered a smile on my face . ‘Of course ,only if you take care of yourself’
‘I will now go .’ She smiled as I pecked her .
I drove home with Kimberly still sleeping in her car seat .When I got home ,I saw Josh standing on our porch ,his face looking sad.
‘She’s ok ,she should be home tomorrow .’ I said climbing out the car .
‘And what about the uh...the baby ?’ Josh asked .
‘She doesn’t know and she isn’t going to find out .’ I said picking up Kimberly .
‘Youre just like her in so many ways.’ He said .
‘Josh don’t start with me .’ I simply stated .
‘I broke it off with Sarah.’ He stated .
‘Why?’ I asked ,trying to hide my happiness .
‘The bruises.’ He said looking lovingly at Kimberly .
‘I thought you knew nothing about them?’ I asked suspiciously.
‘I didn’t ,I saw Kims wrist and checked the rest of her body .I knew Hayley wouldn’t stage something like that and I have never grabbed Kim in any way .So it had to be Sarah .’
‘Oh...’ I didn’t really know what else to say .
‘Well I guess I will see Kim on Saturday.’ He said
‘Josh ...look man ,im sorry ,I know you loved her and I could tell you still loved Hayley ....but we’re getting married ,I loved her and am not letting her get hurt by anything or anyone including myself...’
‘Thats ok dude...if it makes her happy ....’ Josh said before walking away.
Hayley p.o.v :
**18 months later**
I was married ,to a man that was so perfect . I had a close friendship with Josh again .Once he had dumped Sarah ,he stayed alone for a while ...then he met Natalie ,she was studying and working at starbucks .She didn’t even know him as Josh Farro and thats what he fell for .She was really nice and I was glad to see that he was happy ,she loved Kimberly and was always playing with her and doing her hair .There was a little of a age gap between her and Josh but whats four years ? I was four years younger than Jeremy . I ended up being a bridesmaid for Joshs wedding .Its a shame that I didn’t feel beautiful being seven months pregnant ....
‘Hayley please ,just one more push?’ Jeremy begged me .
‘Why did I agree to this !’ I whimpered .
I had been through labour before but it was much harder having twins!
‘Jer ,I cant ...I cant .’ I sighed ,trying to keep my mouth closed so I wouldn’t scream
‘Its ok ,you can do it.’ Jeremy laughed.
I didn’t know why he thought this was so funny.
‘You have never been through this so shut up.’ I spat between gritted teeth.
All Jeremy could do was laugh ,I squeezed his hand tighter so he would know I was not joking around .
‘Ok ok you win .’ He gasped as he felt my hand tighten to hard around his .
I smiled triumphant .
‘Mrs Davis ,one more push and your first baby will be here .’ The doctor said.
I did as he said and Jeremy went to check if the baby was perfectly healthy .I saw his eyes light up which could mean one thing ...it was a boy...Jeremy had always wanted a son ...he loved having Kimberly and having a girl in the house .
‘Mrs Davis ...one more push and you will have your second child .’ The doctor said smiling .
I did as he said and soon heard crying ...I watched Jeremy to see if my baby was ok . His face went even brighter ...
‘Hayles I must have done something right .’ Jeremy said smiling
‘Two boys?’ I said ,couldn’t stop my own smile creeping on my face .
‘We have to sons babe.’ Jeremy said coming to stand by my side .He was holding one blue bundle and I was handed the other .
‘What are we going to name them ?’ I asked
‘What about Kyle?’ Jeremy said .
‘I like that .’ I said and then looked at my son who I was holding . ‘What should we name you little one?’
‘Cameron?’ I said looking up Jeremy .
‘Its perfect .’ He said before kissing my head .
‘my two little boys .’ I smiled .
Once we had been put in a hospital room ,Josh and Natalie had come in to see the babies .
‘They are absolutely beautiful.’ Natalie gushed .
‘Well done Jer!’ Josh said shaking his hand .
After so much drama in the past three years .Everything was coming together ,I was happy with life ,I had married the love of my life and had two new born babies . Josh was happy with Natalie and they wanted a family soon ...I guess maybe Josh and I weren’t meant to be . I thought everything was going to be good for the rest of my life ...I was wrong...
