In Love again, part 7.

Calleigh went to visit Pierce to the hospital after hearing that he had a traumatizing fire accident.

She was shocked at what she saw.


Keisha Feller.
Did I scare you? Pierce said, as he saw Calleigh standing up by the door of his hospital room.

" No, you didn't.. oh my goodness, your face! ( she almost screamed). What happened? She questioned, inquisitively.

" It's a long story, Pierce replied.
After his accident, Pierce had to stay to the hospital for a couple more weeks, at least to allow some time for his wounds to heal, as recommended by his Doctor, Dr Murray.

Calleigh continued to visit him and quite regularly, providing him as much support as she could.

Sshe enjoyed those visits as she was feeling useful by taking care of him all the time. They quickly reconnected, as they were having good times together.
On the other side of her life, Calleigh’s rapprochement to Pierce was starting to slowly affect her life with Matthieu. Somehow, he felt like she was not as involved in the planning of their upcoming wedding as she initially was, when he proposed to her. He was feeling worried but didn’t want to approach her yet, as he thought to himself: she probably have her reasons. She would talk to me if there is anything I need to know.

However it soon came to the point where he couldn’t see that going on anymore. She would leave early in the morning, come back in the middle of the afternoon and then head back to town.

So where are you off to today? Matthieu asked inquisitively one day,as Calleigh was getting ready for one of her usual friendly “ rendezvous” with Pierce.
Not knowing what to answer as she wasn’t expecting Matthieu to be so suddenly curious, she formulated a pressured answer:

Well Tiara and I are just going to watch a movie today, and as a matter of fact I should run now because I am late! She has been calling me for the past 20 minutes.

You look surprisingly beautiful for just a movie, Matthieu countered. Is anything special happening after that movie?
Embarrassed, Calleigh responded: Not really, it’s just that Tiara and I have been planning this for a while, so it’s kind of special. Besides, I really enjoy the time I spend with Tiara, she is my best friend!

Oh holy goodness, is that the best lie I can come up with, she immediately thought to herself…

She rolled her eyes, and shifted her face to the side: Matthieu realized she had just lied.
Matthieu: are you still seeing him? Matthieu questioned, suspiciously.

She paused for a while, turned around and looked at Matthieu, pretending not to have a clue of what he was talking about.

What are you talking about? She asked, with an innocent face.

Calleigh, please don’t take me for an idiot. Don’t try to lie to me and tell me the truth. I think I deserve to know.
Calleigh, please don’t take me for an idiot. Don’t try to lie to me and tell me the truth. I think I deserve to know. He made her look at him straight in the eyes. She had never seen him that serious before, and despite his calm temper she could see that he was extremely angry. At that moment, she thought it was only fair to Matthieu to know what was going on.

Matthieu, it’s not really what you think, I can explain!

Matthieu: Please do, I am all ears.

Seeing that no plausible explanations were coming from Calleigh, he added:
I know about his accident, and I can imagine how tragic this is for him and maybe for you as well. But this is neither yours to fix, nor your responsibility to visit him at the hospital everydat and incessantly take care of him, while I am waiting for you every night to come back to me!

You don’t understand, Calleigh riposted. He is alone out there and needs support! He has nobody there to be with him…

And whose fault is that? Matthieu retaliated. He put himself in that situation, he is the one who left you and surprisingly you are the first one to rush to him like a little puppy, whenever he is in the slightest trouble! I won’t be surprised if he tries to get you back!
Calleigh couldn’t believe that Matthieu had just reminded her of all the pain she had struggled to bury deep inside. She felt crushed by his words.

Wow, thank you very much, dear Fiance! She said ironically. I can believe of all people you are the one reminding this to me, like I don’t already know! Like I haven’t felt it enough all these years!
He immediately tried to apologize for what he had just said, realizing he had hurt her with his words.

Matthieu: I am so sorry Calleigh, I didn’t mean to hurt you, I shouldn’t have spoken out of anger!
Walking towards the door, Calleigh said: Pierce has done something horrible to me. I didn’t overlook it, but I forgave him. And maybe you should do the same. As for trying to get me back, he would never try to do something like that, because he knows I love you, and maybe you should remember that too.

On that note, she left.
It was the day that Pierce was supposed to be discharged from the hospital, and Calleigh thought it would be a good idea to just have a peaceful afternoon at the park.

After thy finished enjoying their peaceful picnic, Calleigh thought there would be no better time to let him know of the existence of Grace. Pierce cut her short, as he had another thought in mind.
It's really peaceful here, Pierce said. it reminds me of when we used to come here together. I miss these times.

yeah, it was good. Calleigh said.

- Is everything okay? He added, noticing her facial expression had changed.

- There is something I need to tell you, Pierce.And I have been keeping it a secret from you.
After we broke up, I realized that I was pregnant of you, and didn’t want to tell you because I so wanted you out of my life! But then I gsve birth to Grace Mellisa and…she is so beautiful, I just wish you could see her and get to know her!

Pierce’s was thrilled at the news of having a Baby girl, a reaction that Calleigh didn’t exect. She thought he would be angry at her for hiding the existence of their daughter from him.

Pierce: We…we have a baby girl? I can’t believe this, Calleigh, this is such good news! When can I see her? How is she! How does she look like?

Pierce was excited to be the father of Calleigh’s child, and there was no other way to show it…

Calleigh: well, I have a picture of her with me! She took the picture out of her wallet and showed it to him.
Pierce): she is so beautiful, Calleigh…just like you! You have no idea how much this changes everything! Now it all make sense, and we can finally have the perfect family you ever wanted! Out of excitement, he stroke Calleigh’s cheek and kissed her.

Calleigh had missed him. She had missed his touches, his kisses, his sweet words to her. That kiss came like the resuscitation of these old memories they had together, and that she enjoyed back then.

But soon came back the reality: Matthieu’s gentle face popped out of the blue and came back in her head, and at that moment she realized that she had just made a huge mistake.
She immediately tried to push Pierce back, who had a hard time letting go of her soft cherry-flavored lips… Calleigh: this is a mistake, Pierce, it cannot be. This should have never happened! I can’t do this, not to Matthieu! I am engaged now, and I am going to marry him. No, Calleigh! The mistake was me being foolish enough to let you go, and not realizing how much I still love you! The mistake was you getting engaged to Matthieu, but it’s okay now, because I am here, and we can fix this! We can have our future together, our life together, and all you ever wanted!

Stop! Just stop! Calleigh retorted, angrily. We had a future; we had a life and screwed everything up! There is no more us, we don’t exist anymore! The only man I want to be with right now is Matthieu, and this for the rest of my life! These are all lies, Calleigh, I know you better than that, there is no way you completely got over me! Look at me in the eyes and tell me you don’t love me anymore, tell me you forgot everything!

She walked closer to him, and said to his face, with certitude:

I don’t love you anymore, Pierce, and all we had together are just bitter sweet memories. I love Matthieu, with all my heart. He makes me happy. I want to be with him only, and you have to respect that. Now I am going home to my fiancé!
He watched her, as she was walking away. And this time, for good. As she was taking her bath and getting ready to go to bed, she tried to forget the image of her and Pierce kissing, but unfortunately it was hard as it sounds...

She went downstairs, and Matthieu was preparing dinner.

Roasted Salmon, her favorite. He was probably trying to make up for their fight earlier that afternoon. As she saw him, Guilt and self-pity invaded her entire self and she couldn’t hold it, she started crying. Calleigh, what’s wrong? He asked, after turning off the fire from the food which had already finished cooking. I am so sorry, Matthieu, she replied. He could see the tears dropping one by one from her eyes to her cheeks.

What are you sorry for? The fight this afternoon, it was my fault. I should have never said these horrible words to you, and I am sorry...

Pierce kissed me this afternoon, when we were together, and I realized all you said was right, I am so sorry…
What? Did you kiss him back? ( Matthieu asked). Calleigh didn’t say a word. Witnessing the disappointment in Matthieu’s eyes, she retorted: That kiss didn’t mean anything, Matthieu, I promise! I told him that you are the only one I love and want to be with! Please don’t walk away from me! She said, as she saw him slowly walking away, in shock. Say Something! She added, desperately.

Their talking and crying had woken up Grace, who started crying herself. Matthieu went upstairs to console her.
“Are you sleeping, are you sleeping?
Brother John, Brother John?
Morning bells are ringing, morning bells are ringing
Ding ding dong, ding ding dong.”

“It’s going to be alright, baby girl” he murmured to Grace, putting her back in the crib.

Though the night was tough after their argument, Matthieu and Calleigh managed to work it out, at least for Grace’s sake.
Early in the morning, Calleigh was startled by some noise coming from downstairs. Matthieu had already woken up, and so she went downstairs, and was surprised to see what she saw: A pile of travel bags lying on the floor in the living room.
“ Matthieu, are you going somewhere?” She asked, anxious.

I didn’t mean to wake you up, he replied, with a sigh.

“ Wait, hold on, she retorted. What’s going on? What are you doing? She retorted.
Calleigh, listen. He said, dropping his hand luggage on the floor.
Are you leaving me? She interrupted.

No, just listen to me. I think we need some time apart to rethink everything over again. Maybe the engagement went too fast, and it seems like I am pushing you towards something you don’t want.
Look, I want this, okay!? If this is about what happened with Pierce last night, I promise you it was an accident!

That kiss was no accident, matthieu said. He wanted to do this all this time, and yesterday was just the perfect occasion, you just let him. What I am saying is that I have so much to give to you, but it will be foolish for me to bet it all if you are still clinging to another man.

So what are you saying, what is that supposed to mean?

Let’s call of the engagement. Matthieu finished.
Disheartened, Calleigh asked:
Calleigh: when are you coming back?

Matthieu: I will stay in France for about 2 weeks.

Calleigh: can you please call me when you come back? I would love to come and pick you up at the airport and…

Matthieu interrupted: that won’t be necessary, I will stay at a hotel nearby. But I will call you, just so you don’t worry.

On that note, he left.
Calleigh kept looking at his car as he was driving away,farther and farther from the house.

In no time, he was gone.

Hmm, comment didnt show up so reposting on the old tsr version: Ah poor matthieu! I dont blame him for leaving but the fact that calleigh broke down crying while telling him the truth should have been enough to persuade him that she was being honest but I guess that spending time apart will do them some good. Great chapter \:\)
