PostSubject: Out in the open   Fri May 10, 2013 12:48 am

    I left the pizza on the counter and turned off the oven. She wanted to meet downtown. I guess it was the safe thing to do. Taking my bike instead of my stang, I headed downtown to meet her. I got a table, out in the middle of the restaurant, just because it was safe. If everyone could see, no one would suspect. I sat, sipping a beer, waiting for her to arrive.

I carried my book bag on my back, telling the waitress as I came in the restaurant that I was meeting my teacher and she pointed him out and I thanked her and walked over to him. "Mr. Frost. Thanks for meeting me." I sat down in my chair, opening my bag and putting the paper on the table. "Is everything okay?" i asked when I made sure nobody was listening in.

    I looked at her across the table, wanting nothing more than to take her in my arms. I needed her, even just to hold her, but we were in public and that just couldn't happen. "I wish I could hold you right now. I really need to feel you in my arms," I told her, barely above a whisper. "I wish we would have met some place less open." I gave her a soft smile. "You look so pretty."

I leaned forward just a little bit. "We can go to your car after dinner.." I whispered back. Something in his eyes.. he was hurting. "I wish I could hold you.. you look pretty too." I said cracking a smile. My fingers flexed just a bit and touched his knuckles slightly before pulling back.

    I swallowed, damning myself for bringing my bike. I'd tell her that bit later. "There's something I need to tell you, and when I do, I don't want you to think this changes anything. It doesn't change what we have or what we will have. Do you trust me?"

"Of course." I said smiling softly. "I trust you deep in here." i touched my chest before looking at my paper like I wasn't interested in him. If I stared too long someone would notice. This town was very small. They'd rat in a second. "Go ahead." I said.

    I looked down at the paper, not wanting to see any pain in her face when I told her, just to focus on anything but her if I were to hurt her. "When I got home, my wife told me she's pregnant. I didn't want this. It's over between her and me, and now ..." I looked up at her. "God, please look at me," I whispered.

I sat staring at my paper for a long time before lifting my head and looking at him. I tried not to let my face change, but the instant I saw those baby blues my heart sank and I felt my eyes water. "Jackson.." I licked my suddenly dry lips. "god.. I.." I bit my lip to stop it from trembling, breathed in, and didn't say a word because the waitress came up. "The barbecue chicken with mashed potatoes and corn please... and a lemon ice water..." Once she took Jackson's order and walked away I looked back at Jackson. "I don't know what to say. I know you said this doesn't change anything.. but it changes a lot of things.."

    "Why? Why does it have to? Would you not want to be with me if I'm a father? Does it really change that? I'm divorcing Emily Grace. There's no changing that. We may be having a baby, but we don't have to be together for that. You're the one I want to be with, Abigail. You. No one else." I was whispering, trying to stay as teacherly as possible, but I wanted her to know it changed nothing.

I took in a deep breath, before looking away again. "Jackson, it's a child.. you'll see her grow, your child in her stomach and realize you love her more than you ever believed. Stuff like that changes people.. it changes us.. it does." I brushed a quick tear away.

    I reached forward, picking up her paper and looking at it. "Look at me," I whispered. "Think of this paper as your hand. Pretend I'm holding you right now." I looked at her, all seriousness in my eyes and my face as I held the paper between both of my hands gently. "You said you trusted me. Trust me when I say I've never meant anything more than I do when I tell you I love you. I have never felt for anyone, even Emily Grace, what I feel for you. People have children with people they're not in love with all the time. One night stands. Things like that. I don't have to love my wife or be with her to have this child with her. I can love my child and not love her. Please believe me." I was pleading with her as much as I could in my hushed tone, but I wanted her to believe every word I have to say.

I stared at him, a smile spreading across my lips, the other words were just a jumbled mess next to the 'I love you'. "You said you love me.." I said, looking at the paper, imaging my hand there in his too. "I love you too.."

    I hadn't even realized what I had said, but it was exactly what I was feeling, and I didn't want to take it back, smiling, I placed the paper down on the table, keeping my hand placed over it. "I'm glad." I looked down at the paper and then back at her, nodding fully. "And I mean it. As long as we have that, then we don't have to worry about Emily Grace. You're the only thing that matters to me. And I hope," I leaned closer over the table toward her, "I hope that when we're able to be together and not have to hide, you'll be with me even though I have a child." Suddenly, I was thinking about her and me having children, but she was just 16 for Christ's sake. I shouldn't be thinking that. I shouldn't be doing a lot of things with her, but yet I was.

"I will. That doesn't bother me... but this is even more important to keep it a secret.. at least until your child is born safely.. stress isn't good for women during pregnancy.. and you should be there to take care of her and your child." I stopped talking when the waitress came up and set our drinks and plates down. "Thank you." I said with a soft smile.

    I nodded to the waitress and then turned back to Abigail. "We'll figure this out. It's worth it. Nothing has ever been more important to me. Thank you for trusting me. I'll show you your trust isn't misplaced and never will be. I promise." I picked up a fry and looked around before giving her a quick wink.

"And you can trust in me." I said, smiling before eating.
