Days Later.

Someway, somehow, Caleb found himself in Saunders and Co on a Monday morning. He had a meeting with the president of the firm, Mr. Tucker, concerning the protection of the new products invented by his automobile company. The meeting went well and Caleb thanked Mr. Tucker and other associates who helped out before walking out of the conference room. He thought Jayda was going to part of the lawyers he would be having a meeting with. He stylishly asked for her and was told she was busy with another case.

As soon as Caleb walked out of the glass-walled conference room, he bumped into his best friend's sister, Olivia.

"Caleb, what are you doing here?" Olivia asked excitedly as she pulled him into a bone-crushing hug.

Caleb chuckled, "I came to see the president of this firm."

"And you, where are you going?" He asked her.

"Oh, we've been working pretty hard since morning, doing some research for this new case Jayda is working on. I was on my way to get some drinks."

"This firm has the best lawyers in the country, make sure you learn well so you'll be like them."

"Sure, that's the goal." She said proudly.

"Oh shit, that's Jayda, I have to go, " Olivia said and gave Caleb a quick hug before disappearing towards the opposite direction of where Jayda was coming from.

Caleb smiled at the thought of Olivia not knowing that Jayda was pregnant with her brother's child. He wondered if Jayda was aware that Olivia is Sebastian's sister.

"Beautiful." would be an understatement for Caleb to describe how gorgeous Jayda is. He stood still and watched as she stopped to talk to someone.

Jayda was looking really pretty and professional in her dress which stopped right above her knees. She had matching heels on and wore her hair down.

If she wasn't taken by Sebastian, he would have tried to ask her out but that could never happen because he was in love with his girlfriend.

He wondered what possessed Sebastian to treat such an amazing lady with disrespect.

Caleb composed himself when he was her coming towards him. He also walked towards her and talked to her.

"Hii, Good afternoon."

"Hello, " Jayda smiled at him. "How can I help you?" She asked politely.

"You're Jayda right?" He asked and she nodded positively.

"I'm Caleb, Sebastian's best friend." He introduced.

"Oh, " Jayda said softly. Everything now makes sense when she saw Olivia chatting away with him.

"It's nice to finally meet you." Caleb smiled. "I've heard so much about you from Sebastian, " he added.

"I hope he told you the good things about me, " Jayda said and Caleb nodded positively.

"We had a fight on the day he denied being the father of your child. Thank you for teaching him a lesson, he realized his mistake and came back to ask for my forgiveness."

"I know I shouldn't be intervening in you guys matter but I want to plead on Sebastian's behalf. He's really sorry for everything and he wants to be in your life and the baby's life. Please give him the chance to make it up to the two of you." He pleaded and Jayda nodded positively.

"Thanks for hearing me out. I hope we'll see each other very soon."

Jayda smiled, "Hopefully!, have a nice day."

.......

Sebastian has been the sweetest to Jayda in the past few days. He either sends her flowers, chocolates, gifts, dinner or lunch every day and once in every two nights, he sends her a text message, asking how she's doing. Even though Jayda read all the messages, she never replied to any of them but she has been wanting to reconcile with him.

She doesn't know if it is her Ego that has prevented her from doing so or the fact that she's afraid to involve him in the next chapter of her life. She doesn't want a situation where she will be too attached to him and then he will break her heart into pieces.

...............

As soon as Caleb got to his car, he reached for his phone and dialed Sebastian. He put his phone on loud speaker and started the car.

"Dude, guess who I just saw?"

"How do you expect me to know." Sebastian groaned from the other side.

"I just saw and spoke to Jayda."

"Are you for real? Where did you guys meet?" Sebastian asked interested.

"I'm just leaving Saunders and Co. I came to see the president of the firm. I saw Olivia and just in time, Jayda was passing by so I got the opportunity to say Hi to her."

"What a good friend you are! You had an appointment in that firm and you could not even take me along."

"But you told me you were going to be busy today." Caleb chuckled.

"I'm not busy whenever it comes to anything that has to do with Jayda, " Seb said.

"Okay, Sorry Bro. Next time." Caleb smiled and Sebastian rolled his eyes on the other side.

"You never told me she was this beautiful and Sexy..." Caleb exclaimed.

"She's mine dude, stick to your girlfriend, " Sebastian replied possessively.

Caleb chuckled, "Damn, You're whipped bro."

"So what did you guys talk about?" Sebastian asked interested.

"Nothing much, I apologized on your behalf and I could see the eagerness in her eyes that she

wants to be with you. I assured her you've changed. But I can see you guys getting back together soon."

Sebastian heaved a sigh, "I hope so."

"So I guess Olivia doesn't know about Jayda and the baby, " he asked.

"No, she doesn't. Only mom and Dad are aware."

"I have to get back to work Caleb, we will talk later."

"Okay, bro. Caleb said and then ended the call."

.........

Sebastian stayed back an extra one hour at the office to complete his task for the day. At few minutes past 8 pm, he was done with everything he had to do.

Seb was sorting the papers on his desk, to see the one he will take home to continue working on and the one he will leave in the office when his phone rang.

He let out a silent groan because he knew it was Olivia who has called again. He promised to give her a call in twenty minutes. It wasn't even up to twenty minutes and his younger sister has called again.

Without looking at the caller ID, he picked up the call.

"Olivia, I told you I'll call you back in twenty minutes. It's barely nine minutes since you last called."

"It's not Olivia, It's me, Jayda. I'll call back if you're busy." That very familiar voice said.

Sebastian's eyes went wide, he almost could not believe what he heard.

"No, no... You can, Sorry I mean, I thought it was Olivia, my sister that was calling, " he explained nervously.

"No need to cut the call Jayda, I'm all ears." Sebastian rose to his feet and nervously scratched the back of his head. He silently heaved a sigh of relief, Jayda called him which must be a good thing right?

"Sorry, I didn't reach out to you earlier, I wanted to be rest assured that you're a changed person. I got all the gifts you sent and I read every text message you sent. Thank you."

"No need to mention. You deserve more than that and I'm sorry for the way I acted, what I said to you and how I behaved towards you starting from the morning after the night our baby was conceived." Sebastian said sincerely, hoping Jayda would feel that he really wanted to be in her life, he wanted to experience everything concerning her pregnancy with her.

"How have you been?" He asked her.

"Good." She replied.

"And the baby?" He whispered shyly.

"The baby is fine too."

"I know this is kind of an emergency but I wanted to ask if you are free tomorrow."

"Sure, Yes... Definitely!" Sebastian replied immediately. He didn't care that he had meetings scheduled for tomorrow. Three meetings in the morning and one in the afternoon.

"Okay. I have a Doctor's appointment tomorrow morning by 9:25. You are free to come if you want to."

Sebastian had the best smile on his face. "Sure, I would love to. I will definitely be there." He tried to hide his excitement but failed woefully. Jayda could feel he was very happy that she extended the invite to him.

"Okay, I'll text you the address and we will see tomorrow."

"Jayda!!" He said before she could cut the call.

"Thanks for calling. You have no idea how I've longed for this day. I promise to make it up to you and our baby."

"We will be counting on that." Jayda smiled.

"I will see you tomorrow, Goodnight."

"Goodnight, sweet dreams, " Sebastian replied before Jayda could end the call.

............

"See, it wasn't that bad." Lilian smiled. She was listening to their conversation. Well, she wasn't able to hear from Sebastian's side but she listened attentively to all that Jayda said and from the smile on Jayda's face, she could tell everything went well.

Jayda tucked a strand of hair behind her ear. "He said he will be at the appointment tomorrow. My little peanut and I will have a shoulder to lean on."

Lilian connected her hands with Jayda's own. "Be open to Sebastian and as he had requested, give him the opportunity to make it up to you. Perhaps you guys are destined to be together because, how everything happened is just so crazy. I'm happy that arrogant cousin of mine finally met his match." Lily said which made Jayda blush.

"So we are now Sisters. Not just by mouth, but by blood. Even though I was hoping for you and Gabriel to you know.....get together but that brother of mine is so weird."

Jayda laughed out loud. "You know Gabriel sees me as his sister and nothing more."

"Yeah, besides I don't think he's ready to stop being a playboy. But he met a girl on Uncle Albert's birthday and they've been together for almost three weeks now which is a good thing. Hopefully, their relationship will last."

"I hope so too. Everyone deserves to be happy. Like you always say, life is too short." Jayda replied.

Suddenly, Lilian's phone buzzed, she had an incoming call. "Finally, the call I've been expecting." She said excitedly as she stood up from Jayda's bed.

"My regards to him. Let him know I miss him more than you do." Jayda said which earned a smile from Lilian.

She blew Jayda a kiss before walking out of her room to answer her boyfriend's call.

Roman, Lilian's boyfriend is a Medical Doctor. He has been away for six weeks now. He is on a seven-week work assignment in Australia.
