Fictional Romance Chapter 4 Part 2
However brief of a moment that his lips touched mine, the sound of a woman’s voice took me by surprise. As Nash cupped his hand up towards his phone and started heading off towards the kitchen, I glanced his way with a smile and headed off into the bathroom.
Once I closed the bathroom door behind me, I glued my ear to the back of the door in order to catch the conversation. To no avail however, the only sound I could hear was Nash’s response.
“Yes, sure put her on.” Nash responded to the other end of the conversation.
“Why hi baby, how’s my big girl today?” Nash responded with what seemed like a pure delightful tone.
As my eyes widened and my ears tried to squeeze down on the flattened surface of the door in order to somehow catch the other end of the conversation, I could now hear the sound of the front door opening and Nash’s voice fade off into the distance.
One look at myself in the mirror of the bathroom, I began to wonder what it was that I was getting myself into.
I couldn’t stay hidden away forever so I decided to join the others outside. Upon stepping out onto the front porch I could see Nash leaning against a tree and smiling with his phone still glued to his ear.
Shall I go over and join him I wondered to myself. Just as soon as my mind started its own debate, Monica jumped up and grabbed my hand and pulled me back inside the house.
“Savanah I must tell you something. I went to the doctor the other day, and I am in fact pregnant.” Monica said in a somewhat joyous tone of voice.
As she stood their still holding onto my hand eagerly awaiting my response, Jet preceeded to walk inside the house.
Just as quickly as Monica had grabbed my hand out on the porch, she let go, turned to me and smiled as if giving me some sort of cue to keep her secret limited to ourselves.
By now Jet was giving us a raised eyebrow kind of look as he headed off into the kitchen.
“What are you girls whispering about?” Jet said in a casual voice.
“Oh nothing Jet, we were just talking girl talk, you know, trying to figure out what to cook for dinner” Monica replied with a sheepish grin in my direction.
“Oh yeah, what did you come up with?” Jet replied.
“Um we were thinking since its so nice out, perhaps you and Nash wouldn’t mind cooking out on the grill, while me and Savanah cook up some fried potatoes and maybe some green beans?”
“That sounds pretty good, what do we have to cook on the grill?” Jet asked.
“Well, I bought a couple of steaks the otherday, they are still in the fridge. I was saving them for this weekend, but tonight will do.” Monica said, as she headed off towards the kitchen.
Just as soon as Monica disappeared, Nash walked back in through the house. Startled. I began to speak with a hesitant smile.
“Everything okay?” as I slid my hands down both sides of my jeans as if to wipe off the anxious sweat.
“Why yes, Savanah, everything is well.” Nash replied.
Just as soon as I could see Nash start to say something else, Jet comes out from the kitchen and throws Nash, Monica’s car keys.
“Let’s go brother, we need to get some charcoal for the grill if we are going to eat tonight!”
“Okay brother, sure thing!” Nash replied as the two of them headed off outside.
I do not know what it was that I was thinking as I stood at the front door watching the two of them disappear down the driveway. All I know, is that my life felt as if it just went from boring to something filled with adventuresome.
As I was taking the moment in, Monica began hollowering at me from the kitchen.
“Savanah, can you help me please?”
“Sure thing, I will be right there!” I replied back as I kept staring down the road to where Jet and Nash had disappeared to.
Walking into the kitchen, Monica was bent down staring into the fridge. “Are they gone yet?”
“Yes they just left.” I replied anxiously wondering what was on Monica’s mind.
“I think Nash has a kid!” I blurted out.
One look from Monica’s face as she shut the refrigerator door, and I immediately wanted to retract my words but it was too late, she heard me.
“What? What makes you say that?” Monica’s lengthy stare overwhelmed my thoughts.
“Umm, well, I heard him asking whoever was on the phone how his big girl was today.” I replied hesitantly as to not give away that I was eavesdropping into Nash’s conversation.
“Oh really? Well, that’s interesting. I wonder why Jet hasn’t told me that?” Monica pauses for a moment and then lights up with a big smile. “But then again, we haven’t really talked much about his brother, we’ve been busy with other things, like well, you know, having fun!” Monica twirls around the kitchen and begins to shake her hips in a nonchalant way as if I needed a clue to what it was she was referring to.
“Geeze, Monica, is that what its all about?” I said in response to her gestures.
“No, but it sure helps.”
Just as soon as we both start to laugh, the front screen door slams shut startling the both of us! One quick turn towards the living room and Monica and I are greeted with Nash soaked down in a sweat and yelling at us to come quick!
