Major news at the bottom!
Chapter 10 - Wow, double digits!
"Alex?" Randy whispered as he peeked his head out from the bathroom.
Alex stirred and pulled the covers over her more, "What?"
"If I would have known that it would have been Maddie, I wouldn't have answered." He came out of the bathroom with only a pair of sweats on.
"It's fine Randy. She was drunk anyway." Alex held her breath as Randy laid down on the bed and pulled her into his arms.That was a month ago and things had changed a bit.
"I wouldn't know what to do without you in my life right now." Randy paused as he brushed a strand of hair out of her eyes, "I would be stuck and feeling sorry for myself." He leaned down to kiss her on the lips when the cries of Bella broke it up. "Thanks munchin." He mumbled to himself as he untangled himself from around Alex and got out of bed to take care of their daughter.
"Randy, I want to work and I'm going back to work. Why can't you just drop it?" Alex said as she crossed her arms, glaring at him.They both had been walking on eggshells. Randy knew she wouldn't start the job until both babies were around their first birthday or sleeping all night long. He felt bad but he had his opinion about her working. He had plenty of money to support his family.
"I don't want you to work because I want you to stay at home with Aaden and Bella. I have plenty of money that you don't have to ever worry about working."
"This is the 21st century Randal, women these days don't stay at home with the kids anymore. We get out and support our family, in one way or another." She paused, looking him straight in the eyes, "I'm going to work as a personal assistant and I don't care what you say about it."
Alex rolled over in bed and didn't feel Randy there. She sighed and tossed the covers to the side. Lately he was never there in the mornings. She knew neither Bella or Aaden would be up, she had just gotten up with them three hours ago. She walked down the staires and heard a familiar voice, Jeff Hardy.
"Nah man, that's not how you play this game. You don't just toss the ball, you gotta add on the curve and all." Jeff said, trying to explain to Randy how to play the Wii.
"But I'm getting strikes. I do not need instructions on how to play." Randy said as he pointed to the screen, "See, strike, strike, strike, strike and a spare."
Alex couldn't help but laugh at the two friends. Jeff turned around and smiled at her.
"Good morning. Did we wake you up?"
She shook her head, "No, I woke up to check on the babies, to grab something to eat, and to see what Randy was going." She eyed Randy. "I'll leave you two alone now." She headed into the kitchen with Randy behind her.
He grabbed wrist and turned her around. She sighed and looked up at him. "Yes?"
"Why are you mad at me?"
"I'm not mad at you." She tried walking away but he pulled her back.
"Come on, cut the crap Alex."
"I'm not mad. I'm just upset, for the past week or so, your not even there when I wake up, we barely talk, and when you decide to talk, it's time to leave again."
"You know why I don't talk much. I'm not fighting with you anymore okay?" She nodded, "As for when you wake up, I work out, shower and make us breakfast."
"You can atleast wake me up."
He sighed, "You let me sleep at night even though I don't want to, so I don't want to wake you up."
"Fine. I'm gonna go eat, and shower. Go play the wii." Alex went to walk away again but Randy turned her around and gave her a quick kiss.
"Bella, shhhh." Randy said as he walked around the bedroom, rubbing her back. It was 3am and he had been up for an hour with her, she wouldn't sleep. He grabbed a towel, a diaper, a new pair of pajamas, and the baby shampoo before slowly walking out of the room. Alex had woken up earlier and laid Aaden down in bed with her, that way he wouldn't start crying.
He headed into the bathroom and managed to turn on the water and get it at a reasonable temperature for her. He took off her diaper and threw it away. He laid her down in the pink baby bathtub. She was still crying a little bit but it wasn't as loud. Randy sighed a little bit as he finished giving her a bath and got her dressed in her pink and yellow striped pajamas. She was almost asleep when he headed downstaires to lay down on the couch. He grabbed a big blanket from the closet and headed to the couch. He laid down and laid her down on his chest. In five minutes both father and daughter were sound asleep.
In the morning, Alex found the duo and couldn't help but take a picture. She knew Randy loved that little girl with everything in his heart, same with Aaden.
Alex pushed her shoulder up more, trying to keep ahold of the phone, "What'd you ask, sorry I'm washing some bottles."
"I asked how Bella's been doing at night."
"John, why does your accent have to be so funny? She's doing better. I was scared she was starting to get colic or something."
"It's not my fault I'm from the east coast, and Jeff's accent is stronger than mine."
"How's the 4th generation Orton?"
"He's doing a lot better. Did he tell you about Maddie showing up?"
"A little bit."
Randy opened the door and didn't expect it be. "Alex, get over here."
"Who is it?" Alex asked, standing up and walking towards the door. "Oh my gosh."
"Hey there Alexandria." Maddie practically yelled. "How are you?"
"Maddie, I think you need to leave. Your drunk." Alex said, backing up from the door. "It's 10:30pm and we just got the babies back to sleep."
Randy entered the conversation and pulled Alex behind him. "Look Maddie, I'm going to call your mom okay? You need to go sleep this off. We'll talk later." With that, Randy slowly closed the door. She pounded on the door for another 10 minutes until her mom showed up.
"Sorry about her Randy, I didn't know she was going out drinking tonight." The elderly woman apologized to Randy.
"No it's fine Kathy, no need to apologize." Randy said, as he closed the passanger door.
"So are you Alex?" Kathy asked, looking at the brunette standing by the end of the sidewalk connecting the front door to the driveway.
"Yeah I am." Alex said smiling, "I just wanted to let you know that if you ever want to see Aaden, just call Randy and we'll set up something. He is your grandson and all."
"I will keep that in mind. Have a good weekend Alex, you too Randy."
"Oh wow, I'm sorry." John mumbled.
"It's fine. Randy keeps saying that. I don't know why he keeps saying sorry though." Alex laughed. "I gotta go John. I gotta get a shower in before one of them wakes up. I'll call you or Randy later. See you at the bbq Wednesday."
"Alright, have fun. Of course I'll see you. Love you."
"Love you too."
Alex didn't know what to feel. She was honestly confused with Randy. She couldn't stop thinking about that one fight. Why didn't he want her on the road with him? Was he hiding something? Was he cheating on her, again?
She was nervous to even bring this up to Randy. It would just create a big fight and she didn't want that. She hated fighting with that man. She had been through hell and back with him and it felt like he always blamed her.
"What are you thinking so hard about?" Elaine asked, gazing over at Alex. She came over and helped Alex out one day while Randy was gone and today was one of those days.
"Everything. I just - I don't know." Alex said, looking over at her. "I want to work once both babies are either sleeping through the night or their both one. Randy doesn't want that. He wants me to stay home with them. We had a big fight about a month ago." She paused, looking away and wiping her eyes, "I just don't understand why he doesn't want me on the road with him. He will see the babies more and we'll get to spend more time together."
"I don't know what's up with my son. All I can do is say do what you want to do. Women didn't get to start working until a hundred years ago and now some of us complain about it." Elaine paused. "Just take it one day at a time."
"Why are you so quiet?" Jeff said, nudging Alex. It was finally wednesday and a basically every close friend the two had at RAW was at Randy's house. They were celebrating that both babies were healthy, home, and over a month old.
"I'm just tired and taking everything in." She replied, smiling over at Jeff. "Why do you like me so much Mr. Hardy?"
"Because your a sweet, cute girl that's very amazing." He smiled over at her. "So who has Bella right now?"
"John's had her all night long. He loves her."
"Maybe it's just because he's been there since before she was born, but I'm going to go find her and steal her from him."
"Okay, have fun." She smiled over at him, watching him search around for John before she closed her eyes and yawned.
She was really worried. She couldn't sleep at night anymore and she lied to Randy about why. He would walk out of the room when she wouldn't tell him anything but she didn't really want to talk about what was bothering her.
There was so many things bothering her, past feelings, and now that he was finally ready to talk, she really wasn't.
Randy watched from the other side of the room as Alex and Jeff talked. He didn't know what was going on with them two but he had to start seperating them before anything happened.
He might have been over-reacting but he wasn't about to cheat again or be cheated on.
He wanted things to change and if they didn't, he would fix them.
Sorry about the delay. I've been busy with physical therapy, babysitting and helping my neighbor out with her daycare and whatever else comes my way. Plus, I have tons of family/friend drama going on. OMG! Baby Orton is here and she has an adorable name! Alanna Marie.
Okay, so here was the big news, sorta, It was until I found out about Alanna haha. I'm having surgery on my left knee next wednesday, the 23rd. I won't have a weight limit but I'm getting crutches just to be safe since my right knee keeps popping out of place and I've like fallen down in public because it's done it. Not fun at all. So, I will either have small updates when I get the chance inbetween sleeping and getting back to everybody or just a big update here and there, but you won't have to wait as long as you did with this update. Oh did I mention that I can't take anything for the pain for the next 6 days? Yay, okay not.
I will keep everybody updated. Hope nobody's mad at me for the delay.
P.S. This chapter sort of jumped around, but I did that for a reason. You will find out in a couple of chapters I think. And I start school August 20, so I will try my hardest to update in the two weeks that I'm sitting around before physical therapy starts.
