Chapter 2: How are we going to get through this?
A/N: Hey guys! thanks for all the reviews so I hope you like this chapter! PLEASE REVIEW!
Previously: "I can't do this anymore Steve as much as I want something to happen, it's not going to, there's not going to be an us anymore because you gave up on us. I learned that if you love someone so much that you have to let them go even if that means you're hurting inside and I guess you moved on and maybe I should too, oh and I'm staying at Danny's place" I replied "Now I really think I should go because if I stand here for one more second, I'm going to do something that we will both regret .." I get inside of my car and closed the door.
"Kono!" I stare at him and had both of his hands up in the air, I roll down the window. "Can you just leave me alone for today please? Can you do that ONE thing for me?!" I yell at him while crying. "Please?" I stare at with tears he closed his eyes and nodded. As soon as I'm done I drive away and head to Danny's place and I look at the side view mirror and I see him still looking this way..
I can't believe Kono's here with my daughter, our daughter, Isabella. I know I should be excited to see them but I'm not, and I don't know why or how come I'm feeling this way. Yeah, I know Kono told me to leave her alone but I can't do that even though I nodded to her saying that I will. I need to explain to her why I did those things to her and Isabella. I lose my train of thought when I hear Cath trying to get my attention.
"Sorry, what?" I asked her and shake my head and focus all my attention on her now.
"I asked you what's going on with you and Kono, I could hear you guys yelling outside a few minutes ago." She looks up at me in disbelief.
"Oh it's umm... nothing, really Cath you don't need to worry about it okay?"
"Oh, well you know you can talk to me right?" Cath smiled at me.
"Yeah I know thanks." I smiled back.
"So who was that little girl with Kono, she was adorable!" That's when I freeze and stopped everything I was doing, I completely forgot to mention to Catherine that I had a kid with Kono. Great, know what am I supposed to tell her now?
"Umm.. Cath I think it's time I told you something important and I don't know how you are going to take it so I'm just going to come out and say it. That little girl that was with Kono is her daughter Isabella ..and-.." She cuts me off.
"Oh my god! That's so great for her, I don't see why or how I was supposed to take it Steve."
"Well, I kinda wasn't finished before you and I dated again then got engaged, Kono and I were together and things happened between us that I don't know how to explain, but that was also my daughter too.." I paused for a moment and waited for Cath to say anything or at least something.
"Wow Steve that's great, I mean for you-.."
"Wait, you're not mad?" I questioned her.
"Well, I'm not that mad, I mean you're that father of Kono's child, so what am I supposed to do about that? Nothing because right now all I care about is your happiness and we're going to be married soon so if Isabella is part of your life then I want to be part of that too. Yeah, maybe I'm a little jealous that you and Kono were together but that was then and this is now."
"Wow Cath I don't know what to say but thank you. You're the best. Oh I need to go run do a few things but we'll do something tonight okay?"
"Yeah sure Steve" She smiled and pecked my on the lips.
I lied to her I not actually going to go run and do a few things, I'm going to stop by Danny's and go see Kono to straighten things out with her, hopfully.
Danny, Grace, Isabella, and I all sit together and ate pizza while watching Grace's favorite movie and now Isabella's too. After that, Danny and I put the girls to sleep and we sat there awkwardly finished the movie.
"So babe, what happen today, when Steve saw you?"
"Nothing Danny" I sighed but I knew her knew I was lying.
"Come on Kono tell me, you know you can trust me or am I wrong?" Danny sneered and smiled.
"Fine Danny, we talked, while I did most the talking, he didn't have anything to say to me. I guess I really didn't give him a chance… but it doesn't matter, he should have said something, anything to me but he didn't all he did was stare at me. I don't know what to do anymore Danny, I'm hurt for what he's done but I'm also scared…" I sniffed and wipe a tear away.
"Hey don't worry okay, maybe Steve has his reason for the things he's done to you, I don't know. But you don't have to be scared Kono you've got Chin, your family, and me remember?" Danny smiled at at me.
"Thanks Danny, I can always count on you." I smiled at him and kissed his cheek; he smiled back and kissed my cheek, but then something happen between us. We stared at each other for a when and then we leaned closer and closer into each other, suddenly both our lips were on one another's. It felt weird at first but then something came over me and we just clicked, I don't know it just felt right for once. We pulled away from each other when we heard a knock at the door. Danny and I stared at each other for a brief moment and smiled, until I got up to answer the door.
"Umm, I'm going to answer that so I'll be right back…" I told him awkwardly
"Yeah okay, I'll go clean up I guess.." Danny replied
I opened the door and there stood in front of me was Steve. Wow I couldn't believe it, one minute I'm kissing Danny and the next, Steve shows up at his door, that's just perfect.
"What are you doing here Steve? I thought I told you to leave me alone." I tell him quietly trying not to yell.
"I know you did but I wanna talk Kono."
"I think we've talked enough for today, so you can leave and go back home to Catherine, okay?" Now I'm starting to get angry.
"Kono, just give me a chance to explain, can we go talk somewhere, please?" Steve asked me, I turned around and Danny was standing the gesturing me to go with him, I nodded and mouthed to him "I'll be right back." And smiled, but my smiled vanished when I turned back to Steve.
"Fine, we can talk, but only for a little. Let's go." I closed the door and shoved past him and walked to his truck, he followed me. I guess he really did want to talk because we are driving towards the beach, and that's where we'd always go if we had to talk. We finally got there; I got out of the car, and followed him. I sat down in the sand and he sat next to me.
"Okay Steve we're here so talk because right now I might punch you in the face."
"Listen Kono, I'm really sorry for what I've put you and our daughter through but trust me I do have my reasons. I just wanted to protect you two, you and Isabella are my life and I didn't want anything to happen to you guys. I can remember the last time I called you, it was a Monday night and we'd talk for hours, and that was the first time Isabella said "Daddy" to me I was so over whelmed with joy and excitement. I was just wishing I've could have been there to hear her say it to my face." Steve paused for a minute and looked over to me, I was kind of speechless for a second even though I was mad at him.
"How-how come you didn't call after that? I just didn't know why or how come you won't call, text or even email me after that. During that time Isabelle would ask me how come daddy won't call her and I you know what I told her? I told her that he was busy and after a while she would stop asking me and every night she would ask if she could see a picture of you. I gave her a picture of us; it was the one where I told you I was pregnant and decided that we should take a picture for memories. She keeps it next to her nightstand and kisses it every time before she goes to bed." I wipe my tears away and stare at him.
"I know I've missed up Kono, big time I might add. I started searching for Wo Fat as soon as you left but there was no sign of him anywhere on the island. I was going to call you a week later, after our last phone call but I thought maybe it's best if I'd give you space, to start fresh. Then Catherine was back in town so we've got together just going out for drinks then it got more serious after that and later I asked her to marry me. I'm so sorry Kono if-if I just called you maybe things would be different between us I don't know. I was just trying to keep you safe, I-.." I cut him off.
"I hated you! Then I thought how much you loved him and how hard that must have been for you. I thought wow he's a real man for doing this and how much he loves me but you, you for not call me back for almost a year or not even responding to my calls, texts, and emails! That was not being a man Steve!"
"I was trying to protect you!"
"I didn't need your protection, I'm a grown woman. I can take care of myself, I didn't need for you not to call Steve, I just needed you!" I shouted at him and stood up starting to walk away but he caught my arm and pulled me back.
"Wait Kono, I'm sorry okay? I'm sorry for not calling, for not being there, for not…being the man I should be. Is that what you want me to say?" Steve sighed
"Don't you get it, I don't need another apology I just want you to understand that when it comes to you I'm always going to be that girl that fell in love with you and always will love you, from the time you've saved me from all those undercover missions we've been through together. You're the first guy that made me feel loved, you are my first real love and I want for more than anything for you to be my last, but it's not going to happen anymore, because you're getting married in a few weeks. I can't stand around anymore waiting for something to happen between us because it's not, as much as I want it to it won't. I'm done waiting Steve." I say to him as I'm crying my eyes out.
"I'm truly sorry Kono you have to understand that… I don't know what to do now. You and me, we used together every day of every hour, now every thing's messed up. I've messed up Kono, what are we going to do now?" I see tears from his eyes.
"Nothing because we are not in a relationship anymore, this was like it never happen. Yeah we used to be but you're with Catherine, remember, you don't need me anymore Steve, you have her. I don't want you to break her heart like you did to me. So I need you to forget me, forget we we're ever together. I will always love you Steve but it's like what you said to me, if you love someone, you have to let them go even if it means you're hurting inside."
"But I still love you Kono.." He raises his hand towards me.
"No! Don't say that when you're about to get married in a few weeks Steve! It's not how it works Steve, plus I think I've found someone else I don't know yet… So can you just take me back to Danny's please? It's been a long day for both of us." I sniffed and took a deep breath. He nodded and we headed back to his car, not a word came out from either of us.
As soon as we got back to Danny I hopped out of Steve's car and headed back to Danny's apartment but I hear Steve call my name.
"Kono wait, I want to take Isabella to get shave ice tomorrow, is that okay?"
"I don't know yet, umm Danny, Grace, Isabella, and I we're going to head down to the beach tomorrow.. but you're welcome to join us if you want."
"Oh well okay sure that's fine what time?"
"I don't know yet I'll have Danny call you or something, you know since you never pick up when I call." I tell him harshly and walked into Danny's apartment not look back at Steve. I hear him say bye quietly when I closed the door.
After all that walked into the kitchen and get a bottle of water and walked back to the couch, suddenly I see Danny come out of his room and sit next to me.
"So do you want to talk about it?"
"What one? Us kissing or about Steve and I?" I smirked
"I don't know both?"
"Look Danny I'm sorry about the kiss I don't know what came over me. I'm sorry."
"Hey you don't need to be sorry, I didn't mind it." Danny grinned
"Well don't you think it's a little weird, you know because we're kind of best friends and I was in a relationship with your best friend?"
"No, I mean yeah a little but I like you Kono, I want to see something happen between us I guess what about you?"
"Yeah I kinda like you too; I guess we can see where things take us. Are you sure about this Danny? And if things happen do you think we can take it slow?"
"Yeah I'm positive and yeah we'll go as slow as you want." He smiled at me and I leaned in and kissed him. "Okay, whoa babes slow down, too much for one night." I laughed, "Oh shut up, I'm going to bed, night." I tell him
"Night see you in the morning girlfriend." I rolled my eyes and walked away.
I laid in bed and think to myself maybe things are for the best, I'm with Danny now and Steve's well getting married to someone who he loves.. but wait what is he going to think of this when he finds out I'm in a relationship with Danny?...
A/N: WOW twist right there i wonder what's going to happen now... until next time! REVIEW PLEASE!
