"You have no reason to arrest him! He did nothing wrong!" Camille yelled at the officer. Sofi ran up to the counter and joined in with Camille. I sighed and watched them absolutely get nowhere. I limped my way up to the counter and pushed them out of the way. I slammed my crutch down on the counter and leaned close to the officer.
"Listen here, I just got out of the hospital from getting shot and plus I am pregnant! So I am in serve pain and have mood swings, so if you do not want these crutches shoved up your ass… I suggest that you let go of my boyfriend!" I yelled slamming my hands down hard on the counter. The officer flinched and nodded quickly.
I saw Jerry being pushed out of a room. "Don't push him like that!" Camille yelled rushing over to him. She knelt down beside him and began fussing over his black eye. Angel was shoved out next and Sofi ran over to him kissing him. Finally Jack was shoved out. His nose was bleeding and his lip was busted. I limped my way over to him and jumped into his arms. I grabbed his face and growled, "Those assholes."
"Calm down, Bay. You know I handled it." He grinned and pulled me in for a kiss. It was gentle and fast. I smiled up at him and hugged him again. Bobby walked out of another room, "I swear if I see you on the street with the badge I'll smack that smirk right off your face!" He yelled. He patted Jack on the back as we walked up to the counter.
"Let me get my stuff." He said knocking on the counter. Jerry, Angel, and Jack walked up there and waited for their belongings. "You talked didn't you, Jer" Angel said leaning against the wall. "Hell no" Jerry said.
"I did." Bobby said simply. "You did?" I asked leaning against Jack for support. "Yep, I told him I was banging his wife." All three of the boys began laughing, all saying that they said the same thing. I shook my head and placed my face in Jack's chest. I was so happy he was alright. Sure, he was beaten up a little, but my Jackie was back. He ran his fingers through my hair has we waited for his stuff.
Finally he got his stuff and we were on the way back to Jerry's house. Once we got there, Jerry showed me and Jack to a guest bedroom, so I could get some sleep. I knew I wasn't going to be able to sleep. Too much as happened today for me to calm down, I had too much energy pumping through me. Jack plopped down on the bed and pulled me down with him. I rested my head on his shoulder and listened to his heartbeat.
"Are you going to come back with me to New York?" I looked up at Jack. I smiled, "Of course. I don't want to be away from you." Jack smiled and kissed my forehead. I curled up beside him and soon fell asleep.
Five months later.
Slowly, but surely we were rebuilding Ms. Evelyn's house. Jack and I would be going back to New York soon before I got too big to travel. I had the infamous belly bump and whenever Jack had the chance he would rest his head on my belly. We had finally found out we were having a boy. Bobby was so excited because he said now he would be able to rough house with his nephew.
Jerry's daughters were so excited too. Well everyone was excited. I ran my hand over my stomach and leaned my head back. I heard the boys working while Sofi and Camille worked on the kitchen. I was stuck to the couch. I was forbidden to move or even help out.
"Bailey." I lifted my head and looked over at Ms. Evelyn's old armchair that she always used to sit in. She was wearing my favorite blue dress that I loved her in. I looked at her and smiled. "You have a very cute pregnant belly." She grinned staring at my stomach. I ran my hand over my stomach and felt the tears welding up in my eyes.
"I see Jackie proposed too." I smiled at the small diamond on my ring finger. "About time, but you two better have a girl later. I want to see Jackie love another girl as well."
"Don't worry. There will be more grandchildren." She smiled and slowly disappeared. Ever since I became pregnant, she kept appearing to me. I knew she just wanted me to know that she was always with me.
"Who are you talking to, Bay?" I looked over at the doorway; Jack was standing there with a grin on his face. "Just myself. I see you are taking a break" He walked over to me and plopped down next to me on the couch.
"I decided to sneak away to make sure my two favorite people were okay." He said leaning over and kissed my stomach. I smiled and ran my fingers through his hair as he laid his head on my stomach closing his eyes. "How are you doing, little Graham?" Jack whispered kissing my belly again.
"I love that name. I'm so glad you chose that name." I said rubbing my hand up and down his back. "I dunno, it just came to me. I swear I remember Ma saying how that was her favorite boy name." Jack said sitting up and giving me a light kiss on my lips. I smiled into the kiss and pulled back resting my forehead against his.
"You know that has a nice ring to it. But do you know what sounds nicer?" I shrugged and he wrapped his arms around me. "Bailey Mercer."
I grinned and rotated the ring around my finger. I was really about to become a mother. Even though I have felt like a Mercer, pretty much my whole life… Now I was getting the last name. Now I was going to be known as the wife of Jack Mercer and the mother of Graham Mercer.
I couldn't be happier.
I had the heart of the wannabe rock star and I wasn't going to give that away for anything.
