"Come on, Hailey, we're going to be late, " Theodore said while fastening his cuff links.

"Can we cancel, please, I don't feel so good, " I lied. Truth was, I just didn't want to go meet Theodore's family.

"Nice try, sweetheart, but it won't work, come on, good girl, go change your clothes, " Theodore ordered softly making me groan.

"Tell your mom I'm not feeling well, make up some excuse you're my husband after all, you're suppose to have my back, " I complained, but got up to change nonetheless.

"If I tell my mom you're not feeling well then she—along with the whole family—will come here and nurse you back to health, " Theodore told me, making me cringe at the scenario he just painted.

"The baby doesn't agree with meeting your family either, now you know that listening to the baby is always the right thing, " I stated as if it was a world known fact.

Theodore shook his head in amusement, then sauntered over to me, kissing me softly. "You honestly have no idea how much love this baby is going to get from my family, there is no way this baby, " Theodore placed his hand on my still flat tummy, "would not agree to meet his/her uncles, aunts, and grandparents."

I pouted, knowing that I had lost the battle. I sighed and went inside the walk-in closet to change. Looking at the wide range of clothes displayed on metal hangers, my mind started spinning on which outfit to choose.

After 20 minutes I still hadn't moved from my spot. However, my confusion and frustration was mounting after every minute. Damn, Theodore, you and your outrageous spending habits. Why did you buy me so many clothes that I would be confused everytime I ventured in the closet to look for something to wear? Why?!

"Sweetheart, are you ready?" Theodore asked while entering the closet.

No, does it look like I'm ready?!

"Princess, I thought you were getting ready, " Theodore muttered while coming to stand next to me.

"Yes, I thought that, too, but then I looked at this gigantic collection of clothes and all of my plans to pick the first dress I saw and wear it flew out the window, " I huffed.

Theodore smiled then proceeded to go through the hundreds of dresses. I just crossed my arms across my chest and waited while Theodore rifled through my dresses. After two minutes, Theodore pulled out a peach dress. It was beautiful; sleeveless, made of sheer chiffon with a black belt at the waist.

"Wear this, it would look amazing on you." Theodore gave me the dress, kissed my cheek, then strode out of the walk-in closet. Thank you, Theodore.

I hurriedly changed into the dress. It fell just a few inches above my knees. I grabbed my black heels from the shelf and hurriedly put them on. I rummaged through my accessories and picked out a few black accessories. Then, I picked out a black clutch from my massive clutch collection and strode out of the closet.

"What are you wearing?" Theodore asked irritated.

I frowned in confusion. He just picked out the dress for me and now he was asking what I was wearing? Was he suffering from short-term memory loss or something?

"What are you talking about, Theodore, you picked out the dress for me, " I told him confused.

"I'm not talking about the dress, I mean the shoes, why are you wearing heels, you're pregnant now, which means no high heels, " he told me like I should've known all along, then went inside the closet and came back with a cute pair of black sandles.

"Put these on, " he ordered.

"How do you know so much about pregnancy?" I asked while sitting on the bed and putting on the sandles.

"I don't, I just spent last night searching stuff about pregnancy on the internet after you fell asleep, and there I found that pregnant women are not suppose to wear high heels, " Theodore informed me. I was really impressed. Even though, I had zero experience with men before Theodore, I knew that not many men bothered researching stuff about pregnancy, so Theodore taking the time out to research made me very happy.

"Okay, I'm done, just let me brush my hair and stuff." I hurried to the vanity table, and quickly brushed my hair. I decided to leave my hair down, and secured a headband on top of my hair that had black jewels on it. I applied a light coat of lipgloss amd dropped the tube in my clutch along with a couple of hair ties. I applied a light peach eye shadow and eyeliner along with a light coat of mascara. Once I was done, I walked back and found Theodore putting his watch on.

"Do I look alright?" I asked him.

Theodore smiled and strode over to where I was standing, and pecked my glossy lips. "You look perfect, darling, " he licked his lips and frowned, "ugh, I got lipgloss on my lips, " he complained. I burst out laughing at seeing his face twist weirdly.

"Come on, let's go, my parents had already called three times asking when we're going to come, " Theodore informed me while we both walked out of the house. My heart begun pounding with anxiety once more as we settled inside the car and Dan drove us away.

y, " Mrs. Benson answered then went back to check on the rice.

I grabbed the plates, while the redhead grabbed the spoons, forks, and knives, then ventured out of the kitchen. We entered the dining room, and begun setting the table.

"You know, I wanted to meet you when I came to visit Theodore in Bali, but my cousin forbade me, never seen him act so possessive over a girl, " the redhead broke the silence. I nearly dropped the plate when she mentioned Bali. This was Stephanie?! Sh!t, this was the woman who I accused Theodore of cheating with? Damn!

"Oh I see, Theodore told me you came to visit when he came back after meeting you." I wouldn't tell her how I pried the information out of Theodore by accusing him.

"I must say, Hailey, my cousin really loves you, never seen him this content before, " Stephanie told me while placing a spoon, fork and knife next to a plate.

"Oh?" I couldn't believe what she was telling me.

"Yes, but I just want you to know one thing, Hailey, don't even think about hurting Theodore, trust me I will ruin your life, " she threatened.

"I love Theodore, I would never hurt him, " I told her firmly. I wouldn't let this woman intimidate me. Theodore was my husband, and whether I behaved like a princess or a

B!tch was up to me, not that I would tell her that.

"Good, but honestly, I'm glad you are Theodore's wife, " Stephanie said sincerely.

The door of the dining room opened and Theodore's mom entered followed by his aunts carrying various dishes of food. They placed the dishes on the dining table, and I wished that I could jump on the table and devour each dish. The sight and aroma of the dishes had me salivating while my stomach growled.

"Stephanie, go call everyone, tell them lunch is ready, " Theodore's aunt Karen instructed Stephanie who nodded and skipped out of the dining room.

After a minute, the door opened again, allowing every member of the Benson family to enter. Theodore instantly came to stand next to me, pecking my cheek, before pulling out a couple of chairs. He ushered me in one of the chairs, then sat on the chair next to me.

"Food looks delicious, mom, " Harry commented before taking a spoonful of rice and putting it on his plate.

"Thanks dear, but it was a combined effort. Your aunts contributed equally in making today's lunch, " Mom replied with a smile.

Theodore piled my plate with a bit of everything. Then did the same with his plate. "Eat up, " he told me before slicing his chicken piece with a knife.

I gazed around to see everybody eating. I never knew I would have a family this big to have lunches and dinners with. Never expected people to accept me so completely and unconditionally. For me, big families were part of my fairytale dream. I turned slightly to gaze at my husband. He was busy arguing with Harry, while taking a sip of water. I smiled as a new flower of love blossomed in my heart for my husband.

Theodore had made yet another dream of mine come true.
