Thank you too Lauren and Ashleigh for reviewing, sorry for the long wait, I got writers block, and a bit lazy, but I am done now and have started the next chapter :)
Sorry this one is short but I had to cut it off where I did.
As always no reviews no new chapter! :)
Gabrielle groggily got out of bed and walked towards the hotel room door
"I am coming" she shouted to the person on the other side of the door. Gabrielle and Lucy had been in Adelaide for the past two days and so far it had been a one hell of a trip, on their first day here, she had told Steve he was Lucy's father, but yesterday was more laid back and Steve had offered to show Lucy and Gabby around Darwin, so they went site seeing and Steve showed all the good restaurants and places to go.
"What!" Gabrielle said as she opened the door annoyed slightly by the person's constant knocking when she had clearly stated that she was coming
"Oh, Hi" Gabrielle said when she realised who was at the door "What are you doing here?"
"It's my day off, so I decided I would come and spend some time with you and Lucy" Steve stated
"Steve, it's 9:00am, couldn't you have come later, I am still tired and Lucy's still fast asleep" Gabrielle replied
"Well I am here now, and your awake, I can wait, you go have a shower and I can watch Lucy" Steve said smiling
"Fine, she's in the room on the first right down the hall" Gabrielle explained "I'll be done in 10-15 minutes"
"Ok" Steve said as he started to walk off towards the room Lucy was in. He smiled when he saw her she was gorgeous curled up on the bed under the doona, with her thumb in her mouth and her teddy in one arm. Steve just sat in the room and watched her is face an expression of joy; he couldn't believe he had a daughter, and a amazing one at that. She looked like an angel when she slept, he sighed he definitely could get used to this.
"I'm back" Gabrielle said making Steve jump
"Oh has it already been fifteen minutes" Steve replied looking at his watch
"Yeah" she replied drying her hair off with a towel "Do you want some coffee?" she asked
"Sure" he replied walking with her towards the kitchen
"So what are we going to do today then?" She asked as she poured coffee into two mugs
"I was thinking we could go and to the Aquarium, I am sure Lucy would like that" he replied taking them mug in her outstretched hand
"Yeah, she would, she loves going back in Sydney" Gabby told him "So let me get together a few things, while you can get her ready for the day and we can leave in a couple of hours.
"Aquarium! Aquarium! Aquarium!" Lucy shouted as they got out of the car and headed towards the entrance of the Aquarium
"Yeah Lucy it's the Aquarium" Gabrielle said lifting Lucy onto her hip as they walked through the doors of the entrance
"Two adults and a child" Steve told the people at the entrance
"Okay, sir, you start to my left, have a nice day" one of the staff told Steve
"Fishi" Lucy said pointing towards the tank with all the tropical fish in it
"They're pretty aren't they" Steve said pointing to all the different fish
As they walked through the corridor with glass walls and fish all around them, Lucy hid her face in her mother's neck, scared that all the fish were swimming over the top of her. As they exited the corridor, Steve pointed out some tanks where the kids could feel the fish and sea creatures, Lucy immediately wanted to be put down and ran straight towards the tanks.
"It's squishy Mummy!" Lucy squealed when she touched a sea slug. Lucy put her hands in the different tanks before she became board and the moved on towards the shark tanks. Lucy's eyes went wide when she saw the sharks come to the surface of the tank and look at her briefly before going back down.
"Scary, Mummy" she said sucking on her thumb and covering one eye with the other hand. Not long after they had been through the Aquarium and it was time to head, home with a sleepy Lucy.
"This was fun" Gabby said a she entered the apartment and headed towards Lucy's room to put in her bed for a nap, which for once she did not object to, which seldom happened.
"Yeah, I had a good time. It's good to see you again, and I like spending time with Lucy" Steve replied
"Do you want something to drink?" she asked as they walked from Lucy's room to the living room
"Um..yeah a glass of water will be fine" he replied
"Okay, I'll be back in a second take a seat on the couch" she told as she walked off
Steve situated himself on the couch and looked around the apartment, it was nice, big enough for Gabby and Lucy to put all there things.
"Here you go" Gabby said as she handed him his glass over water and sat herself next to him
"I think Lucy really enjoyed that, she seemed to have a smile on her face most of the time except for when she got scared" Gabrielle said laughing lightly
"Yeah but she's a little trooper" Steve replied smiling
"That she is" Gabby said
"Yeah, I meant what I said before it's good to see you, I have missed you" he told her
Before he knew what had happened, he was kissing her, and it felt amazing, but the he remembered that he had a girlfriend and Gabrielle was not her. He pulled back and stared at her with wide eyes.
