"Be Careful What You Wish For"
All she wanted was his love,
Until she got it.
Chapter 1: Goodbye, My love
She opened her
eyes, and immediately wished she hadn’t. Her head was pounding from the
drinking spree she went on the night before. Rolling over, she allowed the
comfort of her sheets to embrace her as she fell back into a deep sleep.
When she awoke
again she remembered why she had let seven years of sobriety melt away. The
love of her life, Jasper Jax, had left her. She loved him with a passion and
she thought goodbye would never be a word in their vocabulary. She had let a
lot of things go in her life but she thought that he would always be
permanent. When their eyes locked with each other everything seemed to melt
away. All that mattered was each other.
Why had he
left her? She loved him more than life itself. She told him everyday how
much he meant to her. Why, all of a sudden, did he want her gone from his
life? They had a baby girl together. Aurora meant everything to him. Why
would he jeopardize his love for the newborn baby?
something was up. But, she’d just have to change that. She knew she could do
it. She just had to try. She would not let another man just slip through her
with Aurora, she gave her to the nanny and went to get ready. First, she put
on the tan summer dress that Jax loved so much. It had a red flower beading
along the bottom left corner of it. Then, she tied her hair up into a knot
at the back of her head. Her make- up was applied with special care and she
finished off the look with a pair of black silhouettes. A black purse hung
from her shoulder. Looking in the mirror, she knew that no man could refuse
her. She left the house with pride.
She headed to
his office knowing that it was his favourite place to be when something was
wrong. Knocking once, she heard no answer and entered. Walking in was the
biggest mistake that she’d ever made. What she saw in front of her made her
knees buckle beneath her and the floor around her sway. The man she loved
was kissing the woman she hated. Brenda Barrett was back in town.
At first all
she could do was gape. She felt nothing and life didn’t matter at all.
Realizing she had been standing there too long, she turned to leave but
banged into the door. Both Jax and Brenda looked up.
“Skye…I…I,” Jax tried to explain.
“You what Jax? Huh? You left the baby and me
for her? How could you?”
“Its not what you think. I never meant to
“Sure you didn’t Jax. You knew what this
would do to me but you still insisted on leaving.”
“Skye, why are you here anyway? I thought
that you were going to stay home to play with Aurora Belle today.”
“I’m here because I wanted… I wanted to… oh
never mind. I’ll just leave. Sorry I interrupted your little love fest.”
Jax gets a look of pity on his face.
“Skye, please don’t leave like this. Let me
explain. Brenda, can you please leave?”
“Sure. I‘ll talk to you later.”
Brenda’s voice made Skye flinch.
“You don’t need to explain Jax. You’ve loved
Brenda your entire life. Why stop now, when you have a wife and baby? Brenda
will always set your heart on fire and there’s nothing that I can do about
As soon as she
left the office, she fell to the floor in tears. She couldn’t believe that
she had held it together for so long. Sinking to the floor, tears streaming
down her face, she let her cheek touch the ground, as she lied there crying.
So much was racing through her head. She couldn’t believe that Brenda was
back. How could Jax leave her and why? What would happen to baby Aurora?
Would she miss her daddy? How could she go home to the memories? She’d see
the pictures of his baby blue eyes and wish she were in his warm, comforting
stood up, and headed to her car. Jax was waiting for her when she got there.
Wiping tears from her eyes and face she slowly approached him. With each
step, the same thought ran through her head. It was telling her to hold back
the tears until she was safe at home. She tried really hard to do so, but
when she got to him, everything came pouring out.
“God, Jax. How could you? I thought you loved
“Skye, I do…I did love you. But,”
“Please do not explain Jax. To me, your words
are nothing but lies. Just 6 months ago you promised to love me for the rest
of your life.”
“You know that I’ve always loved Brenda. I’ve
known her for so long.”
“Why are you telling this to me? Do you think
“I never thought that I’d see her again. I
thought she was gone forever. But she wasn’t and she cam back pledging her
love to me. I’m so sorry for hurting you Skye.”
“Oh please. Wasn’t I good enough for you Jax?
Or to you was I just the emotionally damaged witch, starved for love and
affection, self-destructive streak a mile wide, with a garden
variety-drinking problem. I did all I could to make you happy. I hate you
for what you’ve done to me.”
“I loved you Skye. But you have to realize
that people move on.”
“Is that all you have to say? My God Jax. You
make it out like you’re the innocent party here. Well, you’re not Jax. All I
ever wanted in the whole world was to be really loved. Now, you’ve taken
that away from me.”
“I did love you Skye. I loved you so much.
But, my heart is in another place. I’m so sorry.”
“I need to leave, now.”
“Skye, not yet.”
“Let me go Jax.”
As Skye got
into her car and drove home, she realized that her life could go on. She no
longer needed a man who could not love her. She wouldn’t make the mistakes
that had caused her so much pain in the past. After all, she had a baby to
take care of, and she did not want to make the same mistakes with Aurora
that her mother had made with her. She no longer needed a man’s love to keep
her happy. All she needed was the love of her baby and her baby needed her
love too. She would never let another man hurt her. That was her vow to
