After putting Jordan back into bed, I made coffee for the two brothers.

"Congrats on your son." Jake said, breaking the awkward silence.


"How old is he now?" Jesse asked.

"Four." I answered. "He's getting so big."

"He definately looks like an Attica." Jake commented, making me chuckle.

"Yeah," I take a small sip of my coffee. "Oh, My dad and John are coming by later for dinner."

"Is John still a lady's man?"

"Yeah," I chuckled. "You can't teach a dog new tricks."

"Very True."

"You guys probably want to get some rest," I said, placing my empty mug into the sink. "Guest room is first door on your right, and my room is right across the hall." I walk out of the kitchen and head upstairs. It's kind o awkward now that he knows, and I don't know what to do.

I wake up to the sound of Jordan's scream. I tossed the blanket over, and hectically ran down the stairs; towards the scream.

"Mommy, Looked what Santa got me." He said, holding up an action figure.

"Sorry to wake you," I look over at Jesse, who's on the ground with Jordan. "He wanted to open his presents."

"That's alright, I needed to get up anyways." I said, sitting on the couch. "Open the next gift, Jordan."

"Alright," As he opened each gift, I could see the happiness in Jesse's eyes. He looked like he was happy to have a son. Of course I opened my gifts that I bought myself, I got myself two pairs of new heels, and a new purse. After breakfast, I began cooking Christmas dinner for seven since John is bringing a guest. As I was cooking, Jesse walked into the kitchen and sat down at the table.

"Were you ever gonna tell me?" He asked.


"Were you ever gonna tell me that I had a son?" I have a small nod, and continued cooking.

"Yeah, I was actually gonna tell you after the heist."I admitted. "but you kind of commited suicide before I could say anything."

"Why didn't you tell me before that?"

"Jesse, That was far from my mind since I was fighting for my life. My friend was killed with my other friend and it hurt. Sometimes I wish I could go back and said I was pregnant, but would that have changed a thing?"

"Yes, I wouldn't have missed 4 years of his life."

"But you're here now, right?" I snapped. I turn around and he's looking at me. "Don't give me that look, Jesse. Either you're in his life or you aren't. I'm not gonna pressure you to stay when you really don't want to be." Just then Jordan walks into the room.

"Can I have some juice?" He asked.

"Yeah," I walked away from the stove, and grabbed a juicebox from the fridge."Go watch TV, and please don't spill it on the couch."

"Alright, mommy." I watch him leave the room, then continued cooking. I feel arms wrap around my waist.

"So that's a yes?" I asked.

"Only if you say yes to this." What? I had a confused look on my face, but then I see a ring box in Jesse's hand. I stopped what I was doing, then opened the box. A diamond ring flashes in my eyes.

"Is this?"

"Yep," He answered, kissing me on my cheek. I took the ring out of the small box, and place it on my ring finger. It looks cute.

"Wait, How did you get this?" I asked.

"I've had it for a while." He answered. "It was gonna be a promise ring, but I thought it was time for something more than that." I turn my body around, and gave him a tender kiss. "I kind of need your answer. Is that a yes or a no because I could seriously-"

"Jesse, just shut up." I smiled, before kissing him again. I lay my forehead against his, and watched a smile emerge. "Love you, Jesse Attica."

"Love you, the future Mrs. Roxanne Attica." He chuckled.

"You know I hate being called my real name."

"Alright. Mrs. Roxi Attica." He said.

"Perfect." I gave him another kiss.
