"Hi, Penelope. Thanks for coming over..."

Oh no. I knew this speech. I knew this speech all too well. He was about to tell me the other night meant nothing and that we wouldn't speak about it again. He was about to tell me to back off. And I suppose he's right. He has a wife to think about. It's not like we're teenagers anymore just mucking about. We're adults now... apparently.

"Hi, Penelope. Thanks for coming over..."

Oh no. I knew this speech. I knew this speech all too well. He was about to tell me the other night meant nothing and that we wouldn't speak about it again. He was about to tell me to back off. And I suppose he's right. He has a wife to think about. It's not like we're teenagers anymore just mucking about. We're adults now... apparently.
"Listen, I..."

Tom began. I lowered my gaze, it was best if he didn't see the hurt in my eyes.
"Penelope, please look at me." he implored.
My eyes slowly met his. I clenched my jaw trying to stop the tears that were welling up in my eyes from falling. He looked sad. He sighed and reached out to stroke my cheek.
"Penelope..." he began. He took an intake of breath, preparing himself, then cursed. He pulled me towards him and kissed me. So softly, so sweetly.
He pulled away sharply.

"The reason I came here was to tell you something." Tom paused, as though he didn't want to say it. "Maddy's pregnant."
I stepped back, the weight of what Tom had just told me hitting me in the chest like a brick.
"I guess I should leave then..." I mumbled.

With Maddy and Tom having a baby there really was no way we could see each other. I knew deep in my heart that I would never be with Tom but now the truth was out in the open it hurt even more. At least for the last five years I had fooled myself that he wanted me secretly. But now I really had to face up to the fact that him and I would never be...
I turned to leave.

By now the tears were escaping from my eyes freely and cascading down my cheeks. I didn't want Tom to see me cry but I couldn't control myself. I let out a quiet sob then hoped to God he hadn't heard. I didn't want to leave. I didn't want to have to say goodbye. But I couldn't force him to love me now...
I felt his hand on my arm.

He spun me round to face him again, stopping me from leaving.
"You left me once a decade ago and I never thought I'd see you again," he said at speed. "I beat myself up for years, wondering why I hadn't told you then how I felt and how I'd never get to be with the one person I loved. The one person I still love. Despite how much I try to deny it."
Then he held me and kissed me urgently, his hands pressed tight against my back.
I led him upstairs.

He lay me down on the bed and kissed me softly. Images of Jack flicked across my mind momentarily but it was too late to feel guilt now. All I could think of was the weight of Tom on me and how right it felt. It was the most wonderful night. I felt loved and needed and wanted and never thought of what would happen next. I fell asleep cuddled up against Tom, his arms holding me close...
And woke up alone. What's Tom going to do now? He can't be with both of them. Is he having second thoughts? Find out in Part Four!
