Chapter Thirteen: Two months later
Two months later found Sam seven months pregnant and feeling like she was never going to be normal again. She was as big as a house and couldn’t even get up without assistance from Jason anymore.
The twins were healthy and even though things were going well, Sam was afraid. Tonight Lila would be coming home and Sam was apprehensive about what was going to happen or better yet, what wasn’t going to happen.
She was afraid that Lila wouldn’t like her or Jason or wouldn’t want to live with them. As she sighed softly and rubbed a hand over her stomach to try and calm the twins, Sam reminded herself that whatever happened they would get through it as a family and with their friends.
She was surprised when Carly walked into the penthouse, took a seat next to her on the couch and announced that she and Sonny were in the process of getting a divorce.
“It’s about time, Carly. Sonny is not someone you should be wasting your time on,” Sam said, without caring how rude she sounded.
Carly laughed and then said, “When you’re right Sam, you’re right. Now, what are you going to do when Lila gets here in an hour? Also I called Maxie and told her that Lila was coming home tonight and we both want to know if we can be here when Jason returns with Lila.”
Sam smiled at Carly and not for the first time since the two of them had become friends, she realized how lucky she was to have her two best friends in her life.
Sam paused for a moment as she considered Carly’s question. A moment later she spoke. “When Jason returns with Lila we are going to introduce ourselves and talk to Lila for a little while; then we are going to show her around the penthouse and talk to her about the wedding. As to being here, of course you can. Jason and I definitely want you guys to meet Lila.”
Carly stared at Sam for a moment and then said, “Tell me that you and Jason didn’t cancel the wedding. I’ll kick your ass and Jason’s if you did. I finished getting the ballroom set up in the Metro Court yesterday, just the way you wanted it for tomorrow.”
Sam laughed softly and then shook her head before speaking. “No Carly, Jason and I are not canceling our wedding. We are both looking forward to finally getting married. Well, to each other.”An hour later
Sam and Carly had spent the rest of the hour talking and Maxie showed up just as they were about to turn on a movie while they waited for Jason and Lila.
When Maxie showed up she took a seat in the rolling chair at the desk and rolled the chair until she was sitting near Sam and Carly and the three of them watched a movie as they waited for Jason and Lila.
It wasn’t long before Sam heard the sound of Jason’s voice coming from the other side of the door down the hall a little.
She froze a few moments later when there was the sound of Jason’s key in the lock and the door opened, revealing Jason and a beautiful little girl with jet-black hair that fell to her waist.
Sam broke into a smile when Lila stared at her before turning to Jason and waiting for him to say something. Jason kneeled to Lila’s level and said, “Its okay, Lila. Why don’t you have a seat on the couch next to Sam? You can get to know her and the other ladies who are sitting next to her.”
When Lila nodded and moved to take a seat on the couch, Jason turned his attention to Sam and said, “I’m going to get Lila’s things from the car. I’ll be back in a few minutes.”
Sam nodded and when Jason left the room, she turned her attention to Lila and said gently, “Hi Lila, I’m Sam.”
Lila looked up at Sam and then said softly, “Hi.” She paused for a moment and then said, “Jason said that I would get to meet my mommy today.”
Sam’s heart nearly burst out of her chest. She was so happy at her daughter’s words. “Lila, I want to talk to you for a few minutes.”
Lila nodded and then she waited for Sam to speak. Just as Jason came in taking Lila’s things upstairs and returning to the living room Sam gathered her courage to speak.
“Lila sweetie, I’m not sure what Jason or anyone else told you, but I’m…” Sam paused, tears flowing from her eyes as the words got stuck in her throat.
Lila looked up at Sam and then said, “It’s okay; I know who you are. You’re my mommy. I have a picture of you that I got when I was born. I keep it on the table near my bed.”
Jason walked over to Lila and Sam and took a seat on the floor. “Lila, your mommy and I love you very much and we want to know if you would like to stay with us.”
When Lila nodded Jason and Sam both smiled. They were startled out of their wonderful family moment when they heard someone clear their throat.
“Oops! It looks like I forgot to introduce you to your aunts.” Motioning in Maxie’s direction Sam said, “Lila, this is your aunt Maxie. She’s been looking forward to meeting you.”
Maxie got to her feet and approached Lila. She gently hugged Lila, happy to finally meet her best friend’s daughter.
When Maxie released Lila from the hug Sam introduced Lila to Carly. “Lila, this is your other aunt, sweetie. This is your aunt Carly. Both of your aunts love you very much and couldn’t wait for you to come home, just like your daddy and I.”
Lila let Carly hug her and then she turned to her mother and said, “Jason is my daddy?”
When her mother nodded, Lila walked up to Jason and she hugged him. “I love you daddy.”
Jason hugged Lila gently to him and he said, “I love you too, Lila. Your mother and I love you more than anything.”
However as Jason hugged Lila he couldn’t help but think about Sonny and PC Slut.
Sonny and PC Slut were the reasons why Sam had thought Lila was dead. They had lied to Sam and they were the reason why she had been broken for so long and he was going to make them pay.
Both of them were going to die with a bullet to the brain. Stepping back from the hug a few moments later, Jason smiled at Lila and then turned to Sam.
“I have to go run an errand. I’ll be back in a few hours. Just know that when I get back, everything will be okay for the wedding tomorrow. Also, Maxie, can you get a dress for Lila? Use your connections in the fashion world and spare no expense. Sam has my account numbers.”
Moments later Jason grabbed his gun box from the closet and he left, closing and locking the door behind him.The Next Day
The following day found Sam getting ready for the wedding. She, Carly, Maxie and Lila were putting their dresses on and finishing up.
Just as they finished getting ready there was a knock on the door and Alexis poked her head in and spoke. “Jason just got here and he’s going to be ready in a few minutes.”
Sam nodded and she took a seat at the vanity, taking a few breaths as she readied herself to marry the man that she loved. Turning from the mirror, she smiled at Lila and said, “Are you ready sweetie?”
Lila nodded and then she turned and followed Carly and Maxie as the wedding march sounded, letting everyone know that it was time.
Sam slowly got to her feet and moments later she exited the room. She smiled as she saw Alan and the two of them got ready to walk down the aisle.
Before Sam knew it, she was standing with Jason before Father Coates and their friends and family and they were pledging their love for each other.
Right as they kissed the doors to the church flew open and in walked Sonny, gun drawn and pointed in Sam’s direction.
Before anyone could react Sonny pulled the trigger and a moment later Sam fell to the ground in pain, clutching her stomach.
Sam’s screams rang throughout the church. Jason immediately called for Max who forced Sonny out of the church. Jason was quickly at Sam’s side while several of the guests starting dialing 911.
“Sam, Sam can you hear me?” Jason demanded as he held onto his new wife’s hand for dear life. After everything they had been through he was not going to lose her. Not like this and not anytime soon.
“Sam, Sam please answer me!” Jason said, panicking. He started to calm down a little when Sam slowly opened her eyes and spoke, but the words she said scared him.
“Jason, it’s the babies. Something’s wrong, it’s too soon.” Sam forced the words out and they came out in a whisper.
Suddenly Sam’s eyes rolled back in her head and Jason started yelling for the ambulance when suddenly Maxie and Carly were at his side trying to calm him down.
Turning to Carly and Maxie he said, “Tell everyone to go home and that I’m sorry,” Jason said quickly as he cursed under his breath waiting for the ambulance to show up.
When the ambulance showed up a few minutes later, Jason turned to Maxie and asked if she would take Lila for the night. When Maxie agreed, Jason got inside the ambulance and rode with Sam to the hospital.
As he rode in the back of the ambulance with Sam and one of the paramedics, Jason held one of Sam’s hands in his own as he assured her that everything was going to be okay.
“Everything’s going to be fine Sam, you’ll see. I took care of PC Slut last night and Sonny’s going to get his, don’t worry.”
Jason sighed softly as they rode to they hospital. His mind flashed back to what he had done the night before. It had hurt him to do it, but it had needed to be done. PC Slut had needed to be taken out and after meeting her at the old safe house they used to use, he had put a bullet in her brain before calling Lucky and telling him what had happened.
Lucky hadn’t been happy about it, but he understood that Jason had killed PC Slut to protect Sam. Jason also said that their agreement was still on.
Lucky was to continue acting as Jake’s father and they would both get to spend time with Jake and Lucky had even gone as far as to ask Jason if he wanted to spend time with Cameron as well.
Jason had immediately accepted the offer and then said that he had to leave; that he and Sam were getting married in a few hours and nothing was going to keep him from being there.
