Chapter 8

"Austin, what are you doing here??" Sami asked.

"I came to see you Sami. I miss you," Austin said.

" Well I don't miss you . I told you that I never wanted to see you again. What part of that did you not understand?" she asked.

Sami could smell the alcohol on his breath. This is not going to be pretty when Lucas shows up. I have to get him out of here, which I s going to be pretty hard considering that he's totally wasted.

"Look, Sami you don't mean that. You love me. You always have. I know I made a mistake. I'm sorry. Please take me back," slurred Austin.

"No! I am so sick and tired of playing second fiddle to Carrie. You will always love her. Plus, I don't love you. I never did, I just thought I did. I'm marrying Lucas in a few days anyway," Sami said.

"What! Why in the hell are you marrying Lucas? You hate him!" asked Austin.

"We love each other," she lied.

"Yeah right Sami. Like I'm going to buy that," he said.

"You better believe it. I love him and he loves me and we are getting married in two days," she said.

Austin suddenly grabbed her by the arms.

"You can't love him, you love me! Lucas is lower than dirt!" With that Austin forcefully kissed her. Sami bit his lip. He yelped in pain. She then elbowed him in the stomach.

"You're not half the man Lucas is! He is a wonderful, caring person, unlike you! And he is a great father!" Sami said.

Little beknownst to them, Lucas had heard that last part of their conversation. How could he not? The whole building could hear them arguing. He was just so surprised that Sami defended him like that. He guessed he should return the favor. He then burst into her apartment.

"Austin, get away from her now!" Lucas said.

"What are you going to do about it?" he asked with a challenge.

"You really do not want to test me," Lucas said angrily.

Even in his drunken state, he could see that Lucas wasn't kidding.

"Whatever, she's not worth it anyway," he said as he left.

After Lucas made sure the door was locked, he turned to see that Sami was crying.

"Shh, Sami. It's okay now. He's gone," Lucas said consolingly while enveloping her into an embrace.

"Lucas, when he grabbed me like that, I was so scared. I had never seen him like that," she said.

"It's okay Sami. I'm here now and I won't let anyone hurt you. I promise. I'm just sorry I didn't get here sooner," Lucas said

"I'm just glad you came when you did. I don't know what would have happened if you hadn't shown up when you had," Sami cried.

"Please Sami don't cry," Lucas pleaded as he wiped the tears from her face. She looked so helpless. He couldn't resist leaning in to kiss her. As soon as his lips touched hers, she responded deepening the kiss. They finally pulled apart.

"What was that for?" she asked with a smile

"I was trying to make you forget about Austin and you look so beautiful tonight, I just couldn't resist," he said with a smile.



"I heard what you were saying to Austin before I came in. Did you really mean what you said?" asked Lucas.

"Yes I did mean it. You are a wonderful person and a wonderful father. I've always cared about you, whether it was just as Will's father or as my best friend and confident. I'm just sorry that I ever made you forget what we had with all the things I have done," Sami said.

"You're not the only one to blame. I've made my share of mistakes. I'll always regret hurting you the ways I did. Can you forgive me Sami? I care about you so much. I always have," Lucas pleaded.

She answered with a kiss that defined their relationship. He deepened the kiss and they got lost in each other. Their date was soon forgotten as they headed off to the bedroom.

AN: Wanna make me happy? Press the blue button! I'll love ya forever and remember, be honest!
