Be my baby

Jarod sat on the bed of a cheap motel room. It was just a few miles away from Blue Cove.

He knew that he shouldn't risk being around the Centre too often, but he had hoped that he would feel better being closer to the woman he loved.

Still, he hadn't decided if he should call or visit her or just drive away without doing anything at all, just like he had done several times in between the last months.

He had promised her to call her soon when she had traveled back to Blue Cove. That had been three months ago.

Jarod had wondered if it had just been a slip in her point of view. He was afraid that she already thought it had been a big mistake.

That's why he had never called her.

He laid down on the bed and listened to the radio.

The night we met I knew I needed you so
And if I had the chance I'd never let you go
So won't you say you love me
I'll make you so proud of me
We'll make them turn their heads
Every place we go
So won't you please

He had never told her that he loved her, too afraid she would run away or simply not say that she loved him in return.

(Be my be my baby) Be my little baby
(I want it only say) Say you'll be my darling
(Be my be my baby) Be my baby now
(I want it only say) Ooh, ohh, ohh, oh

He felt so miserable. How could he have dared to not call her? Maybe she was even worried about him. After all, she knew how dangerous his life was. He could die any day. Yeah, great. Maybe that's why she didn't want to have a relationship with him. On the other hand, the life she now had was the life of a prisoner and it was already dangerous. Hell, the woman worked for the Centre!

I'll make you happy, baby
Just wait and see
For every kiss you give me
I'll give you three
Oh, since the day I saw you
I have been waiting for you
You know I will adore you
Till eternity
So won't you please

(Be my be my baby) Be my little baby
(I want it only say) Say you'll be my darling
(Be my be my baby) Be my baby now
(I want it only say) Ooh, ohh, ohh, ohh, oh

He decided that he at least should give it a try. Just call her. If she tells you to go to hell, fine.

He dialed her number and hoped that she would tell him otherwise …

So come on and please
(Be my be my baby) Be my little baby
(I want it only say) Say you'll be my darling
(Be my be my baby) Be my baby now
(I want it only say) Ooh, ohh, ohh, oh

"Parker."

(Be my be my baby) Be my little baby
(I want it only say) Ooh-oh-oh-oh, ooh-oh-oh-oh
(Be my be my baby) Oh-oh-oh, oohh...
(I want it only say) Oh, oh, oh, oh, oooohh...

"It's Jarod. We have to talk."

"That's true."

THE END

P.S. The sequel is called "The trouble with love".
