“What was the fight about?” she asked
when they broke apart. Jeff wiped tears from her face.
“Tim was listening to us talking and
then he decided that he would say he was going to be raising
our baby and you’d be crying on his shoulder.” Jeff said.
“You’re kidding?” she said shocked.
“No Jon and Curtis had to pull me off
of him.” He said.
“I’m sorry Jeff.” She said kissing
“Why you didn’t do it.” He said
kissing her back.
They went back downstairs, Jeff
stopped to talk to Jon, and Kaye Leigh headed out the door.
“Kaye Leigh where are you going?”
“I’ll be back I need to take care of
something.” She said.
“Kaye Leigh leave it alone.” Jeff
When she got to the stable Tim was in
there, he turned around when he heard her and smiled.
“What’s up Kaye Leigh?” he said. Kaye
Leigh pushed him.
“What do you think you’re doing?”
Kaye Leigh yelled. “Why would you tell my husband that you’re
going to raise his baby, especially after I have done nothing
but defend you?”
“He’s leaving you Kaye Leigh, he told
the guys that.” He said. “He’s going to leave you alone with a
baby, I want to be more than friends with you Kaye Leigh you
must know that.”
Kaye Leigh shook her head.
“Tim, you’ve got the wrong idea and I
am sorry if I misled you in anyway, but we will never be
anything other than friends.” She said. Tim started walking
towards her, she was not afraid she did not think he would do
anything to her.
“I love my husband even if we are
having problems right now. If things don’t work out Tim, he
will still be the only man I will ever love again.” She told
him. He grabbed her arms.
“You don’t love him Kaye Leigh and he
certainly doesn’t love you!” he yelled shaking her.
“Tim you’re hurting me.” Kaye Leigh
“I’ll make up for it Kaye Leigh we
will have a lifetime together.” He said.
“Let go of me Tim!” she yelled.
Jeff, Jon, and Curtis were walking
out to the stable to see where Kaye Leigh went to when they
heard her yell.
“Someone help me!” They ran to the
stable. Tim had slapped Kaye Leigh and said
“You need to keep quiet.” He said.
“You need to get your hands off of
her now.” Jeff yelled. Tim looked up and seen the guys, he
pushed her away from him and ran out of the stable. Jeff
caught her before she fell.
“Are you ok?” Jeff asked her gently.
“Yes thank you.” She said nodding. “I
didn’t realize that he thought any of that.” She sat down on
some hay and put her hands in her head.
“You don’t want to see the bad in
anyone if you can help it.” Jon said. Jeff sat down next to
her and she leaned against him.
“Guys I just want to say I’m really
sorry for this morning and I hope you can all forgive me.” She
“Of course we forgive you, just don’t
let it happen again.” Jon said laughing.
“You’re pregnant being moody is to be
expected.” Becki said.
“I thought that was just because she
was a woman.” Curtis said. The guys laughed.
“We still love you.” Jon said kissing
her cheek. “I need to be getting home. The boys can stay with
“I want to stop and see Dan.” Kaye
“I’m going to take Becki out so I
will drop her off later.” Curtis said.
“Ok, just drop her off at my place;
they can stay until the stuff gets delivered.” Jeff said.
“It’s just the two of us tonight, the
kids are gone, Becki won’t be back until later, want to go to
dinner and rent a movie?” Jeff asked.
“Sure my treat, but I need to talk to
Dan first.” Kaye Leigh said.
“Let’s go then.” He said.
Kaye Leigh was nervous when they
pulled into Jon’s. They went inside.
“Mom what happened to your face?”
Josh said looking at her.
“Did you and Dad get into a fight?”
Dan said looking at his dad. Jeff and Jon laughed.
“No we didn’t get into a fight.” She
“Dan can I talk to you outside
please.” He nodded.
They went outside.
“Dan, I am so sorry about this
morning. I love you so much and I am so proud to be your mom.”
She said, tears were falling down her face. “I was angry this
morning and I never should have taken it out on you and I hope
that you can forgive me, and I hope that you realize I will
always love you and I will always be your mom.” Dan came over
and hugged her.
“I forgive you mom and I love you
too.” He said. She cried harder. Dan had tears in his eyes
They went back inside.
“Is everything ok with you two?” Jon
“Yes.” Dan said hugging Kaye Leigh
again. “I love you mom.”
“I love you too.” She said. “Ok I
need to take your mom to eat; she hasn’t had anything all
day.” Jeff said.
“Really? Kaye Leigh you need to eat.”
Jon said seriously. Kaye Leigh laughed.
“Yes dad.” She said kissing his
cheek. “You boys behave yourselves.”
They pulled into the restaurant; Jeff
opened the door for Kaye Leigh and held her hand as they
walked inside. They were shown to a quiet table in the corner.
“Thanks for your help again today
Jeff.” Kaye Leigh said. “I’m really sorry about Tim.”
“You’re welcome and don’t worry
about him, it’s over and done.” He said.
“Can I get you something to drink?” a
“Tea for me please.” Kaye Leigh said.
“Same here thanks.” Jeff said.
Morgan watched as they came in
together, she watched the waitress seat them and she vowed
that they would not have a peaceful evening.
“Could you send that man over there a
drink from me?” She asked pointing to Jeff.
“Sure.” The waitress said. Morgan
sat back to watch the trouble begin.
“How are you feeling Kaye Leigh?” he
“Pretty good still getting sick in
the mornings as you witnessed.” She said laughing. Jeff loved
to hear her laugh, he was watching her. “If I do get sick
though it doesn’t last too long.” She finished.
“Good hopefully it will end soon, are
you going to set up an appointment soon?” he asked.
“Yes, but I would like you to be
there with me Jeff, I went through my other two pregnancies
alone and I would really like you to be there.” She said
looking at him.
“I’d like that too, just tell when
and where.” He said smiling.
“This is from the lady over there at
that table.” The waitress said setting a drink down in front
of Jeff. Kaye Leigh looked over and saw Morgan.
“Tell her I’m not interested.” Jeff
said giving her the drink back.
“Ok.” The waitress said.
When she left, Jeff said, “I’m sorry
Kaye Leigh.” Kaye Leigh shook her head.
“It’s ok Jeff.” She said taking his
“Do you want to leave?” Jeff asked.
“No not at all, I’m not letting her
get to me.” She told him. “I’ll be back.” He said getting up.
“Don’t hit her like I did, you don’t
want to end up in jail.” Kaye Leigh said. He smiled at her.
“He said he’s not interested.” The
waitress told Morgan.
“We’ll just see about that.” She
said. “Thanks though.”
“You’re welcome.” The waitress
replied and left. Jeff sat down, she was surprised.
“Why are you doing this?” He asked
“Doing what darling?” she asked.
“Don’t call me that. Why are you
trying to destroy my marriage?” he said.
“You’re doing it Jeff, you come to
me, and you’re the one that wants me.” She said.
“Why don’t you try telling the truth
for a change, it’s a very powerful thing.” He told her.
“You’re truth or mine Jeff?” she
asked. Jeff shook his head.
“You won’t win this game you’re
playing Morgan and if you do, you will wish that you never
heard of me by the time I am through.” He said as he left.
“So what news did she have today?”
Kaye Leigh asked when he got back.
“Same thing, nothing new.” Jeff said.
Kaye Leigh laughed.
“How did we ever get to this point?”
“There’s no point in placing blame,
until I can prove those pictures aren’t real you believe I had
an affair.” He said.
“Let’s go.” She said.
Kaye Leigh did not say anything on
the way to get a movie or on the way to Jeff’s place.
“I’ll get the movie set up.” Jeff
“I’m going to go change.” She said.
Jeff had hoped this night would have gone differently but
Morgan ruined it.
Kaye Leigh came out with Jeff’s shirt
“Sorry, but I left everything I
bought back at the house.” She said.
“That’s fine.” He said laughing.
“What’s so funny?” she said looking
down at herself.
“Nothing, I just like it when you
wear my shirts.” He said. She smiled.
They sat down on the couch. While the
previews were playing, Jeff asked. “Did you get everything you
wanted today when you went shopping?”
“I think so.” She replied.
“Good, call me when they deliver it
Monday and I will come and help move it, don’t try to move
anything yourself.” He said. Kaye Leigh laughed.
“You sound like Jon.” She said.
Jeff was looking at her. “Kaye Leigh
I want to ask you something and I want the truth no matter
what.” He said.
“I’ll always tell you the truth
Jeff.” She replied. He smiled.
“I want to know deep down in your
heart do you believe I had an affair?” he said looking at her.
Kaye Leigh could feel the tears
coming again, she was sick of crying.
“I would love to say that I believe
you Jeff, but I’ve seen the pictures and I know that they are
you.” She said tears falling again. He smiled a sad smile.
“I was hoping that you would say that
you believed in me.” He said. Kaye Leigh looked at him, got
up, went into the bedroom, shut the door, and locked it.
Jeff stopped the movie and waited a
few minutes. “Kaye Leigh come out here please.” Jeff said
through the door. After a couple more minutes, the door
opened. He pulled her into his arms and held her. “I’m going
to prove it Kaye Leigh; I love you too much to let you go
without a fight.” He said. He lifted her face so that she
would look at him, and wiped the tears away. “I know you love
me Kaye Leigh and I haven’t given up on us and I never will no
matter what.” He said kissing her gently.
They sat back down and started the
movie again; Kaye Leigh sat next to him and leaned her head on
his shoulder. Jeff took her hand in his. Becki came in just as
the movie was ending and stopped long enough to say good night
then went to bed.
“Jeff I know that the kids aren’t
here, but could I still sleep with you?” Kaye Leigh asked as
she took some dishes into the kitchen.
“Of course you can if you want.” He
Jeff was already in bed by the time
she got into the room, she shut the door, turned off the
light, and got into bed.
“Night Kaye Leigh.” Jeff said.
“Good night Jeff.” She said. They
laid there for about half an hour when she said
“Jeff will you please hold me?” He
did not say a word, just wrapped his arms around her and
pulled her closer, she laid her head on his chest.
Finally, she sat up, turned to him,
put her hands on his chest, leaned down, and kissed him.
“Kaye Leigh?” he said looking at her.
“Please Jeff.” She said looking into
He put his arms around her and pulled
her into a deep kiss.
“I love you Jeff.” She said.
Jeff loved her so much, he wanted to
be with her until his last breath, and he needed to get this
mess straightened out and them back together in their own
home. He was very gentle with her, but still let her know just
how much he loved her. The feel of her next to him had been
driving him crazy, he missed her so much. She fell asleep in
his arms clinging to him; he had no doubt that Kaye Leigh
still loved him.
