"You're awfully quiet, are you alright?" I asked Theodore.

"Yeah, sweetheart, I'm alright, just got to deal with a lot of work. Companies are offering me lots of contracts, so I'm just kind of preoccupied, " he replied with a small smile. I knew that Theodore and I had been married for just a short while but there was already a bond between us, and right now, that bond was telling me that Theodore wasn't telling me everything.

"Are you sure there's nothing else?" I enquired.

"And the fact that now instead of the two of you I have to deal with the three of you is also something I'm a tad worried about." He kissed my cheek affectionately.

"When are we leaving for dinner with your family?" I questioned, snapping a colorful bracelet on my wrist.

"It's your family, too now, darling, but to answer your question, in half an hour, I'm going to go shower now, then we can leave, " he answered then strolled in the bathroom, giving me a sexy view of his delicious back.

Once the bathroom door shut, I rummaged in my jewelry box and picked out a couple of rings. Putting them on I checked my reflection in the mirror; satisfied that I wasn't missing anything I grabbed my clutch intending to head into the living room when Theodore's phone dinged, indicating the arrival of a text message.

I walked to the side table where Theodore's phone was and opened it to see who the message was from. My heart gave a sudden jolt at seeing the name of the person who sent the text message; Ian Black.

What were the odds that this Ian was the same one who was old friends with Theodore? I decided to read the message. When my eyes ran over the typed letters I nearly stumbled.

Three days, then it's game over.

What in Mount Everest did that mean? Three days? Three days till what? Was he blackmailing Theodore? But why? What did he have on Theodore that could mean game over for him? And why hadn't Theodore told me about him?

Suddenly a spark of anger flared to life inside me. I wouldn't let anything happen to my husband. I would fight the whole world if I had to, but in no way would I let this Ian win. Whatever he thought he had on my husband, well I wouldn't let anything harm my husband. I'm going to find out exactly what was going on, and Theodore was going go tell me, even if I have to blackmail him with s3x.

But for now, I would pretend that I didn't know anything. We had to go have dinner with his family, and I would not be in a foul mood. However, now I knew what was bothering my husband, and he would not fight this battle alone.

I put Theodore's phone back in its originial place and went to the living room. Julie informed me that she had cleaned the living room and asked if I needed her to do anything else. I shook my head and told her she was free to retire for the night if she wished to do so, then sat on the sofa browsing through different channels.

After a while my phone started ringing. I checked the caller ID and smiled when Mandi's name flashed on the screen.

"Hey, Mandi, what's up?" I started the conversation.

My smile dropped when instead of getting an equally chirpy reply I heard sniffing from the other side.

"Mandi, are you alright?" My whole body went on alert at hearing my best friend cry.

"Lee, I—I messed up, " Mandi hicupped.

"What are you talking about, Mandi?" I questioned.

"I—Is it o—okay i—if I co—come ov—over?" Mandi asked, her voice breaking.

"Yes, but right now, Theodore and I are going over to his parents' house for dinner, they invited us, " I replied feeling guilty. I was wondering if I could ask Theodore to cancel tonight's dinner.

"It's okay, you guys go, I'll stay at your house until you guys come back, I—I feel alone in my house right now, " she replied weakly.

"I'll tell Theodore to cancel dinner, I'll stay with you, " I told her firmly.

"No, don't cancel your plans, Lee, or else I won't come, " Amanda argued making me roll my eyes.

"Of course I'm going to cancel dinner, Mandi, I'm your friend, I won't leave you at a time like this, " I replied firmly.

"No, if you cancel your plans then I'm not coming and won't even tell you why I'm crying, " she threatened making me give up.

"Fine, but you better get here fast, and when I come back you're telling me every single microscopic detail, " I ordered.

"Yeah, alright, I'll be there as soon as possible." Without saying goodbye she hung up.

I dropped the phone in my clutch just as Theodore emerged from our bedroom, looking as if he was getting ready to pose for the front cover of men's magazine. His cologne wafted up my nostrils making my mouth water. I loved his cologne.

"Ready to go, flower?" Theodore pocketed his phone.

"Actually, Amanda is coming over in a little while, then we can leave, " I told him.

"Is everything alright with her, do you want me to call mom and cancel dinner?" He enquired.

"No, she specifically said not to cancel dinner, but she would be coming in a little while then we can go, " I answered.

"Alright

to talk to Amanda, it's been a long day you need to sleep, " Theodore stated.

"Theodore, I'm going to check on Amanda, and if she wants to talk then I'm going to talk, even if it takes all night, " I replied firmly.

"No, you're not, you are going to go to sleep, even if I have to drag you to bed and lock the bedroom door, " Theodore replied leaving no room for argument.

"Theodore, I'm not a five year old, I can take care of myself, so stop treating me as if I'm made of glass, " I said annoyed with him fussing over me.

"See, you're getting cranky, let's get you to bed."

"No, I'm going to talk to Amanda, " I stated.

"Why are you two fighting?' Amanda asked, coming out of the guestroom.

"Amanda, please tell her to get some rest, it's late and she is exhausted, you guys can talk in the morning, " Theodore pleaded with Amanda.

"Mandi, ignore him, if you want to talk we'll talk, " I told her annoyed.

"Theodore's right, Hailey, you're tired and need your rest, we'll talk tomorrow. I wasn't going to talk to you tonight anyways, I knew you would be tired when you came back from dinner, " Mandi replied.

"Well fine, forgive me for worrying about my best friend." I stormed into my bedroom, furious over the fact that Theodore and Amanda teamed up against me. When would they understand that I could take care of myself, and didn't need them treating me like I was fragile.

I quickly changed into my pajamas then flopped on the bed, covering myself with the duvet, hiding my face from the world. Tears of anger and frustration spilled from my eyes, but I made no move to wipe them.

Strong arms banded around my waist, pulling me against a hard chest. I didn't bother struggling, I knew it would be useless.

"I'm not crying, " I said, my voice breaking.

"I never said you were, but we both know that's a lie, " Theodore murmured softly.

I felt soft kisses peppering my face and neck; unconsciously I leaned into Theodore, letting him shower kisses on me.

"Theodore, I can't handle too many people fussing over me, it drives me nuts, " I confessed, feeling better after getting that off my chest.

"I know, sweetheart, my family can be overwhelming, " Theodore agreed.

"I know your family means well and they just want me to be okay, but it's too much, their love is too much, and I'm not used to it, " I continued to complain.

"It's alright, I'm telling you you'll get used to it, it would take time though, " he replied softly.

"I'm sorry, " I apologized, feeling guilty about lashing out at him earlier.

"Don't be, sweetheart, you're carrying my babies, they're bound to give you hell, " Theodore joked eliciting a chuckle from me.

Theodore turned me to face him, then kissed me slowly. His magical kisses worked wonders in reliving my stress. I raked my fingers through his soft hair while returning his kiss with vigor. Theodore didn't stop, he continued to kiss me until sleep took me in its arm, letting me forget about all my worries.
