Two months later Evan and Zoey came back to the city, which made me happier than Nick's feet massages which became a regular thing since the pregnancy was becoming exhausting. I realized I was becoming more irritated. Nick didn't complain, but I hated the pregnancy was doing this to me. I was uneasy with the extra weight and mostly couldn't sleep at night anymore. I was due any day now, but that day couldn't come sooner.

"Evan wants to come over later, he's worried."

I was sitting on the edge of the bed. One hand on my stomach and the other clutching a cup of tea.

"Okay."

Nick glanced at me, my response barely audible, "You okay, Em?"

"It's becoming really hard, " I whispered to him.

He stepped closer to me, his fingers gently running through my hair, "I know, Matthew is due any day now. I need you to be strong enough until then, okay?"

I leaned into him, being careful not to spill hot tea on his suit, "I just hate feeling like this. Not because of the uneasiness. More so because I'm irritable and snapping every two seconds. I hate that I am like this with you."

"Em, I don't mind."

"I mind."

He grabbed onto my shoulder and gave it a tight squeeze, "It's the last few days of your pregnancy, I think I'll survive a few more days of getting yelled at." He laughed, trying to lighten the mood between us, "You've carried him for nine months, Em, I think it's my duty to at least take some of your pain."

"I don't want to ruin things between us."

He tilted my head back, making me look at him, "We're solid, don't worry about us. Focus on feeling better and don't hesitate to tell me if you need something. Evan too. We're your family, Em, and we're here for you through the good and the bad."

"I love you."

He smiled at me, leaning down to press a kiss to my head, "Love you too." He pulled away and reached for his jacket, shrugging it on, "I'm marrying you in three months. There is nothing that could change my mind about us. About building a future together with you."

He was saying all the right words, making me feel so much better. Nick helped me to my feet and walked with me to the living room. I settled on the couch while he refilled my cup. Handing me my cup he glanced at his phone, a frown marring his beautiful face.

"I need to run, Evan will be here soon. I gave him a key so he can let himself in."

"Thank you."

He looked at me, "I'll be back before dinner." He promised me.

"Okay."

Walking around the table, he leaned in and kissed me, "See you later, Em."

"Bye Nick."

He left the apartment, starting his day at the office. I was watching a sitcom when I heard Evan's voice, calling playfully out to me. Smiling I watched the playful guy enter the living room and settle beside me on the couch. He wrapped an arm around my shoulders and snuggled close.

"My girl is not doing so well." He whispered, placing his lips against my temple, "I hate this, Em."

"Me too." I whispered, "I don't want to be like this with Nick."

Evan snorted, "Don't worry about Nick, he's fine. He'd do anything for you. I just want to make you feel better, but I know there is nothing I can do about that."

I nodded, inhaling deeply and trying to focus on something else. Anything to take my mind off things.

"How is Zo

him as soon as she could, like how much her boyfriend adored that little person.

"We should let Emily rest, " Zoey suggested to her boyfriend.

She wasn't wrong, I did feel tired and wanted to get some sleep. But I didn't want to interrupt Evan's moment with Matthew. It seemed like our boy was comfortable where he was too.

"It's okay, I can sleep through anything at this point." I told her, "Nick will keep you company."

Nick glanced at Zoey, "I'm going to retrieve Emily's bag from the lobby. Miles just brought it over. Watch over Emily for me."

"Sure." Zoey sat in the chair beside me, "We'll be okay. You can go grab her bag."

Evan held onto Matthew for dear life while Zoey kept me company. I fell asleep while Zoey quietly talked to me, informing me about my family and news topics from this morning. I knew she did it to ease my mind, helping me feel more at ease.

A few days later I went home together with Matthew. Nick decided to work from home while I got my strength back. He also wanted to help taking care of Matthew while he got settled in. For the time being, we had his bassinet in our room, keeping him close. We had a room prepared for him but it felt better having him close.

"We'll move him to his own room in a few days, " Nick told me, as he carefully placed Matthew in his bassinet which was placed at the end of our bed.

"It's weird meeting him, " I told Nick who crawled into bed beside me.

"I think now it's even harder for me to get rid of Evan."

"I like how much he loves him."

Nick smirked at me, "Did you see the look on Zoey's face? I think she liked it even more."

"Yeah, I'm sure they'll settle pretty soon too."

Nick gently held me, "We should start thinking about moving out of the city, actually buying a family house. I'm mean we're fine for now, but if we want to expand our family we don't have space."

I sighed, closing my eyes, "Let's focus on our wedding first and then worry about the rest?"

"Fair enough." He kissed my head, "Rest, Em. I'll watch over you two."

In three months we were getting married, I wanted to focus on that first before thinking about the possibility of having more children.
