Chapter Two

'Sian?' There was a look of panic in his eyes as if he knew what was going to happen, 'I-I'm sorry, you know how I can get.'

' It isn't just that.' She sighed, 'Look, this relationships's going no-where Jez. You and I both know it.'

He paled considerably, 'No- No, I-I know there was all that business with Mercedez but she came on to me!'

Sian put her head in his hands, 'Jez, things haven't been right for a while.' He started to reply but she held up a hand, 'Please, let me finish. I-I very much doubt that I would've had the courage to say what I am about to say now.' She looked up in his eyes, 'I-I have tried Jez, I-I really have but the truth is that I-I don't want a baby. I don't…'

His jaw hardened, 'Is it that you don't want a baby Sian? Or is it that you don't want a baby with me?'

She didn't reply. He got the message. Slowly, as if in a bad dream, he watched her remove her wedding ring, and lay it down on the desk.

Michael slowly packed up his things, getting ready to go home. He stared into space, thinking about the day's events. He thought about Sian, their love affair… and how it could never happen again. Feeling the tears creep into his eyes he closed them. Sian had been the love of his life, the best part of him. Suddenly there was a knock at the door. He quickly composed himself,

'Come in!'

To his surprise, Sian, his Sian came in. Her eyes were wet and red from crying, 'S-Sian?' He began. Before he could continue, she rushed to him. Wrapping her arms around his neck she kissed him deeply and passionately. Tears of joy came into Michael's eyes as he wrapped his arms around her waist and pulled her closer. Finally, they stopped, both breathing hard. He rested his forehead against hers, 'Sian.' He whispered.

'Take me home Michael.' She whispered back.

At that his heart warmed and he kissed her again unable to express how long he'd been waiting for her to say that.

Here's to a hopeful Sian/Michael reunion! :-D
