Thank you in advance to all my readers, your comments and rates keep me positive. Calleigh Eds gave birth to a wonderful baby girl on Monday, 5:28 am. She called her Grace Mellisa Eds.
Matthieu’s life with Calleigh was more than what he ever imagined for himself, more than what he ever wanted. Coming to Bridgeport few years ago, he sought to meet the woman of his dreams, but never actually pictured it happening.
The birth of Grace Mellisa made him feel complete, and he wanted to take it to the next level: he wanted to make his big move. The final move. Calleigh and matthieu hadn’t gone out on a date in a long while, and so he thought that would be the perfect opportunity to make his proposal. He hoped she would say yes. He prayed on it. After taking her out to dinner at the restaurant where they first met, he took a deep breath ( his deepest maybe) and proposed to her. In amaze and surprise, she said yes. As he passed the ring through her middle finger, Calleigh felt like the most beautiful woman in the world. The rest of the evening was filled with love and romance between Matthieu and Calleigh, “ Lagachette to be”.
The next morning in the Lagachette household was filled with love and enthusiasm about the upcoming wedding. Calleigh was so excited that she decided to share the good news with her friend Tiara. However, Tiara was one step forward and gave Calleigh a call: but this was not for any good news. calleigh went to the window, as she felt like Tiara was abou
t to announce her something really bad.
Calleigh, I got some bad news...
Calleigh: what? What is it about?Are you ok?
Tiara: yes, I am. It’s about Pierce. He had an accident yesterday night, his house burned and he was rushed to the SEASIDE PRIVATE HOSPITAL, and we haven’t heard any updates since this morning, I am so sorry to announce it to you this way.
Calleigh took some time to process what Tiara had just told her. Yesterday, as she ewas getting engaged, Pierce’s house burned in flames and him in it: what could this mean? How weird was that timing, and what if Grace never got to meet her father? What if he was dead and he never got to meet their daughter? She started wondering: what exactly happened at Pierce Shawkti’s house that led to the fire? Let me take you a few steps back to see how life had been in the Shawkti Household, lately. Pierce had married Shirley Richards, in the hope of continuing their relationship where they left Unfortunately, Pierce soon realized that things would never be the same as it was before between the two of them. She seemed to have become a different person.
She had changed (and him too), and in ways he couldn’t even start to understand.
Even worse than that, Shirley’s presence was bad influence on their daughter, Chelsea, who because of the fact the she missed her mom in her life for 18 years, decided to get her back in her life and started copying all her habits.
She told her dad that she wanted to become a rock star “as her mom”, and literally changed her physical appearance and lifestyle. She deeply believed she had a bright future in that career, and with the strong motivation of her mother she was willing to do anything to achieve that goal.
Pierce: don’t you think you are pushing her the wrong way? Following a dream, a fantasy that is unlike her, and in which she is unlikely to succeed? Have faith in her, she’s our little girl....( Shirley said). she can do it, and if that’s how she want we need to encourage her and support her to achieve her dreams. Pierce: how do you know that’s what she wants, you haven’t been around for so long anyways. And last time I checked, she wanted to be a lawyer, and not some kind of junkie playing some harsh instrument for little pay! As a mother, you are supposed to be looking into law school applications or appropriate colleges for her! Shirley: Pierce, watch your tone when you speak to me, I am not your child1 and for the records, I am her mother and I get to have a say in this! I make the decisions for her too!
Pierce: oh, like when you decided that it was right for her boyfriend to move in her with us, without my consent? You don’t even know that guy, and yet you impose him to me and let him live her with our daughter!
Shirley: well, unlike you I try to get to know him. His name is Jason and he is in the army! I support my daughter’s love choices, and I think she is a wise girl and old enough to make these decisions. And so it was, most of the time, fight after fight.
Every night, Shirley would sit down in the living room with Chelsea, and give her some tips on how to write some meaningful songs. As expected, Pierce was not particularly thrilled by that idea, especially as this used to conflict with Chelsea’s study schedule.
Pierce: look at what you taught to our daughter! Now she is becoming arrogant!
Shirley: how do you expect her to talk to you when you treat her that way? Like she is still a child?
Pierce: but that’s what she is! And it doesn’t justify her disrespecting me! Maybe if you listened to me more often, she wouldn’t get that entire attitude from you!
Shirley: no, maybe if you listened to the needs of your daughter more often, you wouldn’t get that entire attitude from her!
These fights had become routine in the Shawkti household, but the icing on the cake happened on that Thursday night…
Chelsea: Mom, can I go to that party they have at the park? It’s a party, everybody from my school is going to be there… please!! Shirley: okay sweetie, but make sure you don’t come back too late! Later on that evening, Pierce wanted to go out for a ride with his friends.
Pierce: where is my car? I am going out for a ride with the guys.
Shirley: oh, I forgot to tell you. Chels took it, she went to a party at the park with Jason , it’s a big thing from their school, she said it was a big jam, and she really w…
Pierce didn’t even let her finish talking and literally jumped on her throat..
Pierce: how could you let her go out alone at this time, and with that boy! This is completely irresponsible of you!
Shirley: wow relax, what got into you!
Pierce: it’s 1:00 AM in the morning and she is not home! Do you have any idea what can happen to her out there?
Shirley: nothing is going to happen to her, and stop yelling at me!
She better be safe, Shirley! Because if anything happens to her I….. he was so angry he couldn’t finish talking.. he went up to his bedroom, and couldn’t sleep that night until Chelsea was back. The next morning, Shirlet tried to make up for her mistake and decided to prepare breakfast. She did it to please Pierce who, in addition to criticizing her every decision, had been incessantly complaining about her not making any efforts around the house. She disliked cooking, and as a matter of fact didn’t know much about it. She could barely turn on a stove.
After putting some food on the stove, she went up to her room, took a bath and changed. Pierce was still sleeping. Suddenly she was startled by a huge sound downstairs coming from outside. She ran outside and freaked out when she saw…
Chelsea on the floor, she had passed out! “ Oh my Goodness, Pierce is going to be so disappointed at me!” Shirley thought to herself.
As she tried to revive Chelsea who was on the floor, she noticed a smell of burn coming from inside: the food she had put on fire was burning! When she turned around, she saw the entire house had started to burn!
“ Oh no, Pierce is inside!” She foolishly ran inside to try to save him as he was sleeping in his bedroom, hoping it was not too late…
Calleigh rushed to the Sea Side Private Hospital, where Pierce was urgently admitted and she approached the first Doctor she saw...
Calleigh: Morning Doctor, I heard that Pierce Shawkti was admitted here yesterday night in a very critical situation, is he ok? Is he going to make it?
She was shaking, the Doctor could see that she was panicked.
Morning Mam, The Doctor said. I am Dr Ramirez. I can see that you are very much concerned about Mr Shawkti, but unfortunately I cannot disclose any information pertaining to him to anyone who is not a close relative. I am sorry. Wait, what does that mean? Calleigh replied. This doesnt make any sense, all I asked is to know if he is okay, and if I can see him!
Dr Ramirez: I understand your concerns, M'am, but this is against the rules of the hospital and the work ethics. There is nothing I can do. Mrs Shawkti can only be seen by close relatives, especially in his state. Calleigh was disappointed at the fact that she couldnt see Pierce. All she wanted was just to see him, was it so much to ask?
She couldn't go homw without knowing that the father of her child was okay, she had an idea. She couldn't believe she was about to that, but she had too.
As the Dr was walking away to check on some other patients, Calleigh shouted:
Dr Wait! I am his wife! The Doctor slowly came back towards her, as if he didn't hear what she said. Oh my goodness, I can't believe I just did this.. She panicked...
Dr Ramirez: Are you.. Are you Mrs Shawkti?
Calleigh: yes, I am - trying to display the best poker face she could ever make. I would like to see my husband now, please. She added, calm from the outside but bubbling inside.
Dr Ramirez: Of course, he said, looking at Calleigh's face as if he was trying to make a mental memory of her. This way - he added, walking towards Pierce's room. As Calleigh stepped into Pierce's room, she called his name: Pierce, it's me! Pierce was getting ready to go to get some rest. She noticed that there was a fruit basket next to his bed, but with no notes or indication of who had sent it.
The moment Pierce heard her voice, he immediately turned, as he recognized it: It was Calleigh! - of all people, she came to see me! He thought to himself.
As he slowly turned around, he smiled because of how happy he was to see her..But when Calleigh saw the appearance of his face, she got frightened... Oh My Goodness! She shouted loud, taking a huge step backward. It's horrible!
The fire had partially disfigured him.
