Marrying A Cowboy(118)By: Tyra Brown
I glanced over to see David lying there naked and under the covers. He must have covered us both sometime in the middle of the evening. I slid from the bed and wrapped myself in the robe I had hanging on the door. I made my way to Jamal’s room and smiled down at him. He cooed up at me and I picked him up to cradle him in my arms. Lowering the robe, I brought him to me to feed.
“Now that is amazing.”
I looked up to see David standing in the doorway with his boxers on. “I thought you were asleep.”
“I was.” He made his way over to my side and I watched him stare down at Jamal suckling at my breast. He smiled as his hand swept his hair back from his forehead. “I have to go into the office though and as you know, there are some things I need to sort out.”
“Yes, I am sure. Just promise me that you will be in his life.” I looked at him worriedly.
“What, did you think I would just leave now? Come on, Trina. Give me more credit than that.”
I looked at him innocently. “I know you have a life, David. I would not assume that you would do anything.”
“I have to talk to Kristin. I have to tell her what’s going on.”
I stood and walked to lay Jamal back down in the crib. Turning I faced him with my hands on my hips. “And what is going on David?”
“We're getting married, that’s what. I'm a father and the woman that should have already married me is going to marry me now.”
“Yes, damn it and you don’t get a choice or a say in the matter. After what happened, there is no way in hell you can tell me that you didn’t feel something between us. And don’t look at me like that. You know damn well I mean something more than that. I will be back soon, and I love you”
I sat in the rocker again, this time without a baby and listened to the door shut. Deep down I wondered if he would be back. Part of me thought he would and part of me wondered. What if he got back around the rich and decided that we weren’t what he needed? What if he found after talking to Kristin that she was the one who should be his wife? The one that would fit in a lot better than I would. She was the perfect wife material. I worried as I sat there and finally made my way to the kitchen to get something to drink.
We were married within the month. David hadn’t wasted any time in telling everyone about our son and I was pleasantly surprised when they all agreed that I belonged there with them. I finally met his brothers and was amazed at his whole family.
“Look at them.” I turned to see Stephanie standing there beside me. “They make everyone in the company shiver with fear. They come across like these big bad ass men. Look at that. They are just a bunch of big softies.” All three men were holding their sons and laughing and cuddling with them on the couch. Just then David looked up.
“What are you two whispering about?”
“Oh just talking about you.”
“Oh really. Anything good?”
I laughed as I looked at him. “Most definitely not. But then again, it never is with you huh?” I giggled as his eyebrows rose.
“We will talk about that later.”
“I’m sure you two will.” Heather chuckled on my other side. She watched as her boyfriend held her son. Thankfully the doctor who had helped deliver little Joshua was a good man. He smiled over at her and I chuckled at her blush. It was still new for her. I looked around at the tiny circle of people and smiled. I was happy, extremely happy and for the first time I knew what family really was.
