Marietta Parks believes that the only way to stop surprises from happening in life is to control your own fate. Paying attention to every detail she scripts out her own life. Leaving love, romance and children out of it. But then she meets a man who just has to be added into her story, Tobias Harden was the man of everyone’s dreams but to her he was a lovely addition to her already scripted life.
Tobias Harden was the modern day Casanova. Love was not in his vocabulary, and he was allergic to the word commitment, like poison Ivy to the bare skin. A chance kiss with Marietta Parks makes him question his single life. He was to be the best for her, and oddly enough she happens to be the only woman he wants to kiss.
Tobias convinces Marietta that she needs him in her life. But after three years of marriage and life’s obstacles, he finds himself in bed with another woman. He has to convince her that he is still the man for her, especially now that she’s pregnant.
“I just want to see my baby.” Marietta gasped as Jessie stepped forward with the little bundle wrapped in pink. But before she could take the baby in her arms she saw Elizabeth with another baby in blue, “Whose baby is that?”
“Our,” Tobias struggle for breath, “They are both ours.”
Marietta pushed herself in a sitting position, ignoring all the pain that seemed to stab at her from all directions, “They are both ours? Are you sure?”
Marietta patted on the bed in the space just between her legs, gesturing to them to place the babies there. She looked at them side by side and couldn’t believe they were both hers. She unwrapped them and they cried from the cold, but that didn’t discourage her from her mission. She counted their toes and their fingers. She did a complete inspection on the two then stared at them in a dilemma.
“What is it sweetheart?” Tobias asked noticing her hesitation.
“Who do I carry first?”
“How about, the first born?” Tobias picked up his son and placed him in his mother’s arms.
Marietta looked down at him and chocked back a cry, “You look exactly how I imagined you.” He had the full lips and when his eyes opened she gasped. He looked right into her soul and immediately she felt at peace and comforted. His deep brown eyes pulled at her. She pushed back his baby cap and ran her fingers through his curly hair, “Just like I had imagined.”
Reading,Writing,Romance, Creativity and Imagination. These are the words that describe my work.
I was born in Nairobi Kenya and had a passion for books ever since I could remember. Romance and love have always been a strange phenomenon for me. I have always wanted to change the ending of a love story. I decided to start writing my own.
